Scorpio is feared like no other, but why? The underworld initiation is inherent to the game we call human existence. The dark night of the soul is a critical component to evolution. We will all have these experiences. They only get more difficult when we fear and resist them.
The Snake must absolutely freak out when it's shedding time, but when the molting is complete a slick and shiny fresh skin replaces the crusty old model. When we stop fearing change by embracing the rewards of transformation, Universe can do its work through subtle nudge rather than kick to the teeth.
So why not proactively choose evolution, invite the Scorpion to the party, and surrender to the initiation? The further into the darkness, we are willing to venture, the brighter the light will be on the other side. Remember, Scorpio is about the ENTIRETY of the emotional expression. This means it is as much about the Heavens as it is about the Underworld. Where do you most seek evolution in your life? Perhaps you've wanted to make a change, but just haven't been able to. This Scorpio Planet Party and New Moon eclipse is here to help. Set the intention for evolution, invoke the agent of change, and surrender to the process. It's going to happen anyway, so why not invite it? Not to get it over with, but to honor the excitement of the experience and maximize the rewards.
I've been talking about this energy all year, but now it is peaking. It is time to rewrite any rules that limit us from authentic experience and expression of deepest emotions, passion, and desire. When we shed those limitations, we will connect to our highest excitement and it is exactly that excitement that will guide us to where we are meant to be. This is the power of the Scorpio Sorceress!
This power of our intentions will absolutely be amplified by this Eclipse. What makes an eclipse? Why don't we have an eclipse every time the Moon and Sun conjunct? Doesn't a New Moon mean the Moon is right between us and the Sun? Not exactly.
The Moon and Sun have different orbital paths as seen from Earth. The rings are not parallel, so to speak. But any two rings around an object will cross in two places. The North and South Nodes (they look like horseshoes on the chart) are imaginary points in the sky where the orbits of the Moon and Sun cross (as seen from Earth). When the Moon and Sun conjunct (New Moon) or Oppose each other (Full Moon) away from the Nodes, we do not see an eclipse because the Moon is above or below the Sun (conjunction) or the Earth is above or below the Moon (opposition). However, Moon does Eclipse Sun (New Moon) or Earth's Shadow does eclipse Moon (Lunar Eclipse) when this dance happens near the Nodes. This is much easier to explain with images so come check out my presentation on Scorpio and the Nodes at Sutra Yoga in Seattle on 11/7 or at Muse Mansion in Portland on 11/8of you'd like to learn more.
What the hell does a hybrid Solar Eclipse mean? Solar Eclipse means the Moon is between Earth and Sun. This happens when a New Moon is near a Lunar Node like it will be in 4 hours. And Hybrid? That means some places on Earth will witness a Full Solar Eclipse while others will experience an Annular Eclipse (only part of the Sun will be hidden by the Moon). Which will we have? Well, the Eclipse happens November 3rd at 4:50am.
Peep the chart. This is the exact Eclipse Time. The left of the chart is the Eastern Horizon and the Sun and Moon move clockwise. This means the Sun and Moon won't have risen in our sky when the Eclipse happens (4:50am is before Sunrise, after all). So... No Full Solar Eclipse for you, America.
Astrologically, however, it is going down yo! Scorpio New Moon Eclipse conjunct Saturn, conjunct Mercury Retrograde right at the time of Samhain when the veil between worlds is thinnest. Set your Scorpio intentions at this powerful time and they will be honored over the course of this month. How do you wish to evolve? How can you more authentically allow yourself to express emotions, desires, and passions? What fears must you release to look further into the Shadow AND into the Light? How is it that you can be more ALIVE?
Time for the Phoenix to rise. It's a Scorpio Planet Party!!!
See you in Space
