Scorpio New Moon. Solar Eclipse

Scorpio Eclipse 
New Moon

0 Scorpio 24

As always I find the Mercury retrograde a wee bit challenging to my schedule.  To say the least.  Anyway,  I just posted the Scorpio New Moon Eclipse report with about about ninty minutes to spare before the eclipse.   Yeah, that is just how I'm rolling these days.

I am excited by this New Moon Solar Eclipse.   It is the beginning a new cycle that I think will benefit us all --if we are paying attention.   You will find the whole article on Margaret Wendt's website.  

Here is a snippet to article

Welcome to Scorpio New Moon.
And Happy Solar Eclipse.

We’re in an exciting period because this New Moon at 0 Scorpio will be followed by Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces New Moons all at 0 degrees. Obviously the Universe wants us to get a new start with all five of these signs.  And after the hell we’ve been through for the last three years with the cardinal crosses, we deserve new energies.  Big time. 

Of course this new moon is not just a new moon at 0 degrees it is also an eclipse.  With a solar eclipse there is something hidden that is being stirred up.  We want to be able to see it but it is in shadow.   However, even though things might not be out in front and clearly identified we still ‘know’ something.  That is the gift of an eclipse.   It speaks to us on a deep shadowy level.   Coincidentally, Scorpio is a sign that understands and hangs out in shadows.   So we are double downing in shadow energy.   It is worth noting that because something is in shadow does not mean it is always nefarious.  

Given this eclipse is at 0 degrees we are all probably ready to go deep and find this thing that pulsates in us.    The last time we had a solar eclipse at 0 degrees Scorpio was in October 1995.   I mentioned to a fellow astrologer how weird it is that the ’95 eclipse took place three weeks after the OJ verdict and this eclipse is taking place one week after the Oscar Pistorius trial.    Not sure why athletes and crime lines up with it but it did strike me odd.   Personally, everyone should look back to October ’95 and ask what got stirred then and how did things unfold during the next year?   Would you do it differently now?   What did you learn then and how did you evolve between that eclipse in October and April 1996 at the next eclipse.  It is worth you going through your diary or calendar to mull those activities at that time.  Our next solar eclipse is March 20th.  What will evolve between now and then? 

Scorpio is the second water sign of the zodiac.  Back in July we swam in the first water cycle during Cancer.   In Scorpio the water is deeper and swifter.   In Cancer we were swimming on the shore with huge emotions like tsunami waves crashing on us.  We learned to process our emotions by riding up or diving through them.    Now with Scorpio we are once again processing our emotions but we are also using them to motivate us.  We harness them like Hoover Dam harnesses the Colorado River.
