This is the second eclipse of the month and serves as a bookend to the most highly eccentric aspect of the month. Take some time today to just breathe. It’s as if you have just witnessed the most radical circus act and your adrenalin is settling back to normal. If there is any way to take a bit of a retreat here just to honor yourself and your authentic self with gratitude and awareness of your many talents, do it. It could just be that you give yourself an hour to be in contemplation or you leave work early to take a walk.
This new moon is a reset point where you get to decide who you are and what you are up to, what you WANT to do and how you are going to express and support it. If you truly don’t know, start with what you are not and do not want to do and work from there. The energy of the eclipse period as well as this new moon will feed these inner realizations with much power and help carry this new alignment forward.
The eclipse window preceded by Mercury’s retrograde and commencing with the fiery, lunar eclipse of Oct 8 has been a fast-paced, eventful, life-jarring ride for many.  We are encouraged to ‘invite the child out of the basement’.  Let that part of us walled out of the light-filled domain of the heart, be released from the fear and diminishment of the many lives and experiences we have partaken of to reach this threshold where we can now manifest our divine selves here on the physical plane.  Yes, the backlash is great, as is the support for change.  Many cling out of fear to the past, wary and resistant to letting go of what is familiar.  Don’t we all, to some extent?  Doesn’t the world reflect our need for security in the face of such an amazing leap in consciousness?  We find ourselves in a period of extraordinary transition on the edge where chaos reigns, and we must hold the paradox of ‘don’t know mind’ while mind-altering coincidence and creativity and manifestation in alignment with the dance of the divine has never been more spectacular.

Let this New Moon eclipse split you open like a ripe seed pod and sow your dreams into the underworld where they can gestate and release you into your personal power. 

Scorpio says, it’s time to step up and be seen, speak your truths, share your gifts of wisdom, invite in your relationship with the invisible world, and be the master of your life from that place that is deep within your belly and right from the depths that Scorpio rules.

Mercury is still retrograde until Saturday, Oct 25 when this mischievous messenger will come to a slow standstill in Libra and begin to regain its degree before retrograde – 2º Scorpio which will take until November 10th.  With Mercury opposed to Uranus, I would look for unexpected truths to present themselves, and seeing familiar situations in a whole new light that unravels a problem knot.  Mars is working harmoniously in the background with the eclipse parade and is also in quintile aspect to Mercury supporting us in all our communication and interconnecting activities.  Mars enters earthy Capricorn where it is exalted on Oct 26.  Mars is action; get ready with your list and tools to move plans forward and get things done in the physical world.
In awareness and esteem of this watery eclipse and in deference to an honored and recently departed teacher, Dr. Emoto, I urge you to whisper and sing your prayers and dreams into a basin of water and bless yourself and the world with this blessed liquid at the eclipse. Invite in and claim your right to have the life you want using Scorpio’s passion to call forth your secret longings.
