Transform, Transform: ♏🌑☀️Scorpio New Moon& Partial Solar Eclipse

If you’d prefer to listen to this check it out on Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts! The podcast episode includes my rationale behind the prompt questions as well as a semi-guided visualization exercise all of which is also at the bottom of this blog post.

Snippet of the New Moon Chart

🤔What is an Eclipse?🤔

Astronomically: an Eclipse occurs any time a New or Full Moon occurs in the same sign as the North or South Node. The North and South Nodes are not physical bodies but are mathematical points. The points exist where the path of the Moon’s orbit crosses the path of the Ecliptic/Sun’s path around the Earth. When a Solar Eclipse occurs it is because the Sun is partially eclipsed (or, out of sight/blocked from view) by the Moon moving in front of the Sun (from our Earthly perspective). Fun Fact: Every single planet has Nodes!

Astrologically: Eclipses are intense and transformational times. We often experience major changes&difficulties related to the themes of the part of our chart that the Eclipse falls in. Eclipses are a great time to intentionally engage in Shadow Work&Meditation.

👀What To Look Out For👀

This New Moon in Scorpio features the Sun&Moon (and Venus) in the early degrees of Scorpio hanging out with the South Node. Venus, has just moved through the cleansing rays of the Sun and is asking us to consider what Values&Desires we hold that are not being honored. In Scorpio we have the chance to play in the dark. We get to reacquaint ourselves with those parts of our psyche/inner child/subconscious/erotic that we have tamped down out of fear&shame&self-preservation.

This New Moon is asking that we focus on what needs transforming. Where are you burnt out? What are you absolutely tired of repeating? What do you want&need to let go of within yourself? What do you, genuinely, secretly, selfishly desire?

Warning: This is not a process meant to replace the support of a medical professional (therapist, psychiatrist, counselor, etc). This is not meant to be used to process trauma that you are not already well-acquainted with. I do not encourage you to use this to process big feelings that you do not have the support to handle at this time! Be gentle with yourself.

Feel free to journal on these or use them to guide a Divinatory Reading (Tarot, Oracle, Dice, Playing Cards, etc.)
