New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio: Restoring True Joy Into Our Lives
Updated: Oct 25, 2022
The chart of the New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in Scorpio shows a positive alignment between strategic thinking and logical action, but Neptune's involvement reveals tension in discerning the best way forward.
The relationship between Jupiter in Aries and the Sun/Moon/Venus conjunction in Scorpio brings to light one of several paradoxes of this New Moon, in this case, between our desire for expansion and growth through greater freedom and independence and our desire for deep, meaningful and transformational relationships. Both needs must be met to find fulfillment, otherwise something must be given up to accommodate one or both needs in subsequent months. The Full Moon, in 14 days, will help us see what must be kept to maintain some necessary stability and security.
As with any contacts between Jupiter and the Sun, Moon and/or Venus, one must be mindful of overconfidence, overindulgence or over spending during the months ahead since the effects of eclipses can last up to one year. The presence of Venus in the sign of spiritual, psychological and physical elimination and rebirth may indicate that some crisis or deep change in matters that Venus rules may occur to restore the joy of living a more authentic life. Attachment to people and things that no longer serve our ultimate goals and well-being must be discarded and new attitudes and behaviors to live more fully must be embraced. If we proceed accordingly, a new chapter in our life will begin and unfold in the next few months, one more aligned with our true values and free from anything which is not true about ourselves and about our lives.
True and lasting love – of self and others – requires transformation and a willingness to submit oneself to the necessary steps of ego death and rebirth.
Special Feature of the Month: Venus in Scorpio
As Venus travels through the sign of Scorpio, we may suddenly find beauty in the darkest parts of our souls, a love of that which is repressed and hidden, a love for the fires of transformation, such as passion, lust, greed, and hatred.
We will be forced to embrace the Shadow parts of our unconscious nature and unite with those hidden aspects of our personality that have not been granted conscious nurturing. Thus a more harmonious identity will emerge.
