Following the blood moon and lunar eclipse that we had earlier this month is a Solar eclipse in Scorpio on October 23rd, which will complete the eclipse cycle for this year.
While lunar eclipses are more about breaking down and letting go, solar eclipses often represent opportunities to build and create something new and powerful.
Astrologer Cathy Pagno states that solar eclipses can “dissolve old energy and behaviour patterns so something new can manifest.”
The eclipse falls in Scorpio which means that some truth may be revealed that will help you to move on or build a new foundation in your life. This is especially true if events came up for you earlier in the month during the Lunar eclipse that left you wondering, or uncertain as what you should do next.
This solar eclipse also really asks us to evaluate our lives and what it is that we want, without allowing our fears or judgements to get in the way. Scorpio’s strength is in knowing their shadow or darker side, so getting in touch with your repressed emotions and fears will really allow you to let go and uncover the truth at this time.
“Scorpio wants us to feel what the right action is to take, and that means seriously looking into the unconscious to understand what we really feel and want out of life.” – Pagano
This is especially true in matters pertaining to love, relationships and healing. This is because both Venus and Neptune are also involved in this eclipse.
Venus, the planet of love, beauty and the feminine divine will join the eclipse to ask that all roots planted now, whether in business or relationships are intimate, strong and done with love and passion.
Venus also asks that we learn to trust ourselves and our intuitive abilities and to deepen the bonds we have in the relationship with our selves and with others.
Astrologer, Dipali Desai states that this eclipse is sure to “leave its extreme emotional imprint of new beginnings upon the heart energy…to expand trust and empowerment.”
Neptune’s involvement in this eclipse is a very gentle and asks that we follow our intuition, listen to our dreams and be open to receiving the healing energy that this eclipse will bring. Neptune also reminds us to be patient and gentle with ourselves and to allow whatever time or comfort we need, especially if some old wounds have surfaced.
Ultimately this Solar Eclipse brings the chance for new beginnings, an opportunity to close the door on old unwanted belief systems, patterns, jobs or relationships and to welcome with open arms a new and inspiring foundation based on truth and love.
