an energy update for the Scorpio new moon & solar eclipse, October 2022
The new moon in Scorpio on October 25th is also a partial solar eclipse. This moon has the potential for stubborn rigidity, so focus on what keeps you open and growing, choose grace and flexibility...
karma is a b****
Eclipses can be thought of as a door opening to the new and closing on the old.
This eclipse closes the door on the last full moon eclipse in Scorpio back in May, that moon was loaded with karma, the possibilities of stirring up trouble were far too easy.
This eclipse isn’t quite as intense but there is a likelihood of creating problems particularly if there is rigidity. Excess effort or force will lead to damage control later. Be smart, keep it simple and stay sensible.
This month is very good for concentration.
Take on projects that require focus and detail.
What's possible when you play the long game?
Commit to balance and stay even through November.
Don't worry, this seriousness will loosen up in December when we go into Sagittarius season.
When you notice intense behavior intentionally take a step back, breathe and reflect. If you find yourself in over your head, know when to stop, know when to re-evaluate, don't give in to obsession.
Experience the journey.
Experience your senses.
How do you feel?
What do you need to stay balanced?
love conquers doubt
Feelings of self-doubt may show as staying stuck or needing to be right.
Self-doubt just needs self-love, so dig in and really love yourself!
Go easy on yourself, see yourself through the eyes of love and understanding, let deep wounds be healed and forgiven.
Have faith that what you want will come to fruition, the unfolding of it may take longer than you think or perhaps will happen in a different way. Things will naturally come together when you apply your energy and let things unfold.
let your love light shine
Venus joins this eclipse and the next eclipse in 2 weeks too, expect intense feelings to come up throughout the month and also for the next 6 months until the next eclipse season. Prepare for hot blooded passion, vulnerable emotions and deeper connection to feelings. Since this eclipse is happening in Scorpio watch out for jealousy and possessiveness.
There may also be unwelcome feelings of vulnerability, honor your feelings without being destructive. Avoid turning to drugs, alcohol, indulgences or even violence. The karma created now includes how you treat yourself.
Be constructive with your emotions, create, write, paint, garden, exercise and cry as needed. Go into yourself and be honest about your feelings, give yourself plenty of love and compassion.
Embrace water, drink it, swim in it, be near it, have extra showers and baths. Water will help emotions flow at this intense time, flower essences are very supportive too. Express your emotions with crying, sighing, laughing, shouting and singing. Let your emotions flow through your body.
This eclipse is powerful and loaded, things could change in a moment. Let go of what has to go, stay cool no matter what, experience what needs to be healed and leave room for healthy alternatives.
Live well, stay calm and carry on, handle things with grace and flexibility.
