This week we have a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 25at 6:49 am EDT (find your time here).
In astrology, the New Moon is a time of new beginnings and wiping the slate clean. But this New Moon happens to be an eclipse, which means instead of setting intentions, we're better off using this energy to dig deep and clear the cobwebs out of the nooks and crannies that shadows hide in. We're diving into the dark and getting to know what's there, bringing it to the light so we can work with it and grow.
The October New Moon is in the sign of Scorpio - the often misunderstood sign that deals with the cycles of life and death, and often rebirth. Scorpio isn't afraid to peer into the shadowy depths that others shy away from.
Because of this, a New Moon in Scorpio is pretty much always intense and deep. It's a time of pulling back the curtain to see what's really there and driving the behind-the-scenes action. This understanding of not only our inner desires and motivations, as well as those of those around us, gives us more information to work with as we move forward. We see more of the whole picture now.
This Scorpio New Moon is perfect for reflective work, including therapy and shadow work. This energy is also great for investigating, getting to the bottom of things, and working with metaphysical tools like tarot. Scorpio isn’t afraid of looking at what motivates us and why we feel the way we do.
This New Moon is also conjunct Venus, meaning it's a wonderful time for deep excavation in a gentle and healing manner. Venus allows us to get in touch with our empathy as we're moving through the emotional waves of Scorpio, so we can move forward with a gentle hand not only for others, but ourselves as well.
