Happy New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio!

Happy New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio!

This New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs on Tuesday, November 13th, 2012, at 5:09 PM EST.

This lunation is a more potent New Moon, as it is a Total Solar Eclipse, and represents a new beginning in the fixed water sign of Scorpio. It's a time when we can focus on some of the constructive traits of the sign of the Scorpion--passionate, resourceful, focused, probing, deep, and perceptive--and consider how to positively incorporate these qualities into our lives. Scorpio New Moons are generally good for working on our self-mastery skills. We may want to pinpoint the things in our lives that make us feel out of control, such as addictions and debts, and work on freeing ourselves of these emotional burdens. This New Moon cycle is also an opportune one in which to explore what is missing in our lives that leads us to engage in these self-destructive behaviors. This cycle represents an opportunity to rid ourselves of the "junk" in our lives--material and spiritual. With this potent Scorpio energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives.

In the sign of Scorpio, matters related to intimacy, control, power, money, and sharing will be a strong focus on a personal level. This eclipse is about new beginnings regarding all of these matters.

One of Scorpio's "lessons" involve learning to dig deeper into the mysteries around us instead of always being content with status quo. Taking the time to understand others' motives can enrich our feelings of intimacy, forgiveness, and sense of meaning. Scorpio also teaches us that dedication to one meaningful relationship or undertaking can be significantly more satisfying than spreading ourselves around. Here, "quality over quantity" applies. We might want to use this cycle to work on focusing on and developing one special project or relationship in order to help add purposefulness and depth to our lives.

Does it have a particular significance if you were born under the sign of Scorpio? I'm a Scorpio and so are a lot of my friends so we'd love to know :)

Jenna Sharpe - yes! For those who are born under the sign of Scorpio, the Solar Eclipse that occurs today helps pave the way to big personal changes in the coming weeks and even months. This is a time when you can be brave. It's a time to reinvent yourself in some personal way, such as with a manner of expressing and presenting yourself. This is a time when you will get noticed and make a personal impression on others.
