New Moon in Scorpio, Eclipse
We also have Mercury and Jupiter connecting nicely. Today you may realize how joy comes from within and is, in many cases, a choice. What you focus on within yourself can be enhanced. Creative growth is encouraged as the week begins. Your self-talk and what you believe makes all the difference to how big your dreams are.
Further into the week, we have the Sun entering Scorpio on Thursday morning at 7:56 am EDT. This is a great time to embrace the changes in life with the intention of transforming yourself at your core. Your power comes from deep seated wisdom. It is a good time to realize the power of yourself at your source. It’s an excellent time to begin your day with meditation and access your subconscious mind. Gut instincts and deep rooted feelings are a powerful platform to live from in the world.
Later in the day Venus enters Scorpio as well and gets close to the Sun. Connecting to reality from your heart takes on greater importance. We then have a New Moon in Scorpio at 5:56 pm EDT on Thursday. The transformational power of this New Moon is in the metaphorical and symbolic seeds you choose to plant in your life. We'll talk more about this in the New Moon Horoscope on Wednesday too.
We have a partial Solar Eclipse on this day of the New Moon and as you know, that’s powerful. Now realizations from deep within our subconscious selves, comes to light. What is hidden and what is revealed in our personal lives take on greater significance as we begin a new phase with this New Moon growing towards the Full Moon in a couple of weeks.
It’s an excellent time to go within. Hatha Yoga is perfect to do on Thursday, especially during the eclipse as a symbolic demonstration of balancing the Sun and the Moon, yin and yang, male and female energies within you. It’s a great time to access the spiritual realm through prayer and divination. Secrets may be revealed at this time that are life changing. Love and honesty are paramount now.
Scorpio rules life, death and rebirth, and so these subjects could have more emphasis now with this New Moon Solar Eclipse revealing to us the cycles of life. Curiosity is heightened now and so this is also a time where people will have greater interest in theosophy, fortune telling, palm reading and other esoteric and occult interests. Of course, as we get closer to Halloween these spirit realm matters become emphasized as part of the themes we find in Scorpio.
A couple of days later on Saturday the Sun and Venus meet. The truth of who you are is available when you love and accept yourself unconditionally. All those parts of yourself that you hide through shame or guilt can be lifted now. The spiritual approach to life takes on greater importance and your karma can be cleansed through the release of your fears and replaced with authentic love.
As well, with Mercury stationing direct on Saturday, he is finishing his retrograde phase in Libra. However, before Saturday, I would suggest you communicate with others you may have been distancing yourself from for whatever reason during this Mercury retrograde.
During a Mercury retrograde when we are busy working on projects in life in our own bubble, we can often forget to reach out and ask for others to share their insight. By doing this you may miss out on important information that could actually make your tasks easier. Mercury retrograde is a good time to perk up your ears and listen. When you find yourself facing obstacles during Mercury retrograde, someone may have the answer you’ve been looking for that could have saved you a lot of time and trouble. In retrospect it’s easy to know how you’d have done things differently. Now, on Saturday, with Mercury stationing direct, the path forward will become clearer.
Finally, on Sunday, Mars will enter Capricorn. This will set the stage for the upcoming week to feel more ambitious and inspired by action that is dedicated to climbing whatever mountain you set your sights on. An eye on success helps us get excited about the future.

Now is where the real power is. Your thoughts on relationships can change this week. Whatever questions you’ve had about who you relate to whether romantically or in business partnerships, you’ll find some answers that shift your point of view. From there you can start making better choices about how you communicate what you feel is right for you and for those you’re involved with. At the end of the week enthusiasm for career development and ambitions is heightened for you.
Taurus: If you’re organized this week and setting aside a fair amount of time for work and pleasure, you should feel like you love what you’re doing day to day. Rethink how you’re balancing your time and add a little magic to your days with symbolic gestures. Something as simple as lighting incense with intention can shift your perspective nicely. It really is about enjoying your routine now. You can also have a nice transformation in your relationships now, romantic or otherwise. Getting out of the shadows and being honest can start an all new trend in your relationships based on trust and bringing more pleasure to life. This New Moon Eclipse has Venus close by, so you’ll feel the shift considerable. The higher vibration of love is what matters most and will relinquish fears.
Gemini: If you’ve been rethinking what is fun in your life, you’ll get an awakening this week. With Mercury going direct you will see how your creative spark can be demonstrated with more clarity and explored with less judgment and more fairness. Questions and personal reflections over the past six weeks start to come together and answers become easier to express and verbalize. Any denial you’ve had about how your daily routine is not fully supportive of an organized and functional lifestyle, will have to face reality this week. It’s time to turn over a new leaf and get yourself on track. Shake off the cobwebs and get yourself in gear. The light comes on and the magic happens. Love what you do and you’ll attract what you need to do even better.
Cancer: You’ve got to make your life more enjoyable. To get what you want from the world you have to put more love into what you give. It is a two way street and you’re the common denominator in your driving habits in life. This New Moon eclipse is a potent time for you to have an emotional wake up call that helps you reawaken your power of accessing the love and light in life. Goodness is always available in life, you just have to choose to access it. If you’ve been unclear about communications with family and those close to you, or if you’ve had some issues at home that need rebalancing, you’ll get clarity at the end of the week.
Leo: Happiness is one of your gifts and through it you attract your greatest prosperity. Your smile can light up a room. Those closest to you gain so much from you when you express your joy. This week, how valued and appreciated you are becomes an important factor in determining who you want to surround yourself with. By giving your best, you can receive the best. Wherever you’ve stumbled in getting your message across, continue to refine your choice of words this week. Blogging or journaling to flush out your ideas is good for you. At the end of the week you will find it easier to express the right words that help you create the balance you want with those you interact with. Love for family, or those closest to you, is an important seed for you to plant and nurture now. You reap what you sow.
Virgo: Your personal values and feelings of self worth have been under the radar. To be fair with yourself and to find the right balance is something you need to continue working on this week. Finding the right thoughts and words that support a sense of worthiness is so important for you. Your doubts about yourself are merely thoughts, and those thoughts can change if you choose to replace them with better. The transformation you need this week is in your words. You can turn over a new leaf and shine so much brighter. Keep a daily journal to describe yourself with at least 3 positive qualities you like about yourself this week. At the end of the week you’ll notice a difference in your attitude. The secret is in loving yourself.
Libra: Your identity is transforming this week and so is your self worth. As you evaluate yourself you know the importance of fairness. Being diplomatic with others may come naturally, but you can forget to apply that to yourself at times. With Mercury stationing direct in your sign this week after his retrograde phase, you will feel the shift in how you think about yourself. Your money matters and sense of security gets awakened this week. The resources you need to feel more stable and secure may arrive this week, and it may not be what you expect. It may be something more esoteric. The love you have for yourself makes all the difference. It is how much love you have within you and for yourself that determines how much you receive and how much you are supported. This week is a new phase to grow in love for yourself and watching the material world reflect that back to you as a natural consequence.
Scorpio: With your birthday around the corner, the Sun entering your sign, the Moon and Venus entering your sign as well, it’s really about how the core of you is a presence of love in the world. This is a new beginning, about how you feel about yourself. The big question is, “Who am I really?” We all come from the same source, and at the very core of all, behind all those layers, is the same essence, and it is love. The eclipse in your sign with this New Moon can be a real moment of awakening where you feel your energy shift dramatically, like a phoenix rising from the ashes. It’s up to you to make the change though. It’s not about waiting around for things to happen and magically wishing things to transform. You are the common denominator in your life and it is up to you. Your ambition is geared to increase at the end of the week. Set your sights on getting clear and being able to verbalize what you want from life. Your words are magic now.
Sagittarius: You get a last phase of energy from Mars this week and you should use it wisely. Your personal power comes from your strength, and determination to act on what you know. Channelling your wisdom and using it to move forward to stand true to you and from there to create better security for yourself is your optimal use of energy now. Your greatest transformation now with this New Moon and Solar Eclipse is through tapping into your higher consciousness. Knowing how valuable your spirit is and how love builds a bridge to being a force in the collective is a light bulb moment that can start an all new journey of purpose for you. If you’ve had some trouble communicating or understanding the perspective of friends or colleagues lately, you’ll likely find clarity later in the week. Through it you can decide who is the best fit for you to move forward with.
Capricorn: If communication at work has been jumbled and you’ve been unclear about the direction, work towards gaining clarity at the end of the week. Fairness is most important. Your friends and colleagues will play an important role for you with this New Moon. Know who is important to you and who you feel a deep connection with. Some will even find romance with a friend happens unexpectedly. If you are in the spiritual mood tapping into divination with friends, such as a tarot reading for clarity could be very interesting and revealing. Be honest and open and you could get some insight that turns over a new leaf. What you attract now becomes very potent, so keep love at the core of your being, especially in relationship with others, and your life gets much more magical. On the New Moon the unknown may become known. Instinctual wisdom is with you. When Mars moves into your sign at the end of the week you’d do well to identify with your strengths.
Aquarius: The wisdom within you is best accessed through writing, reflecting and pondering now. Mull over the truth of your being. When Mercury stations direct later in the week you’ll gain much clarity from all you’ve been considering. Your career is touched by this New Moon and Solar Eclipse. A light bulb moment could awaken and you’ll realize that what you’ve hid below the surface deserves to be shared. Meditation from the heart is good for you now to grow in self actualization. It’s a good time to put a lot of love into your higher goals and ambitions. You have the power to plant seeds now that will manifest much value. It is your intentions that matter most. That is where you power is. When your fears are acknowledged, you can move above and beyond them and make your magic shine bright.
Pisces: This is a week where the New Moon feels in harmony with your being. The Solar eclipse adds power and potency bringing you an awakening of wisdom. The purpose of your life gets a lot of attention this week. There is a specialness to this week, one where philosophy, the love of wisdom, gives you a greater experience of the world. When the sun partially dims from the shadow of the Moon, it is an omen of what is hidden and what is revealed. After the eclipse, it is a time of awakening from what was. It is when past karma can be washed away. Place your intentions on moving forward with more light. Acknowledge what was and how it served you or where it did not serve you and thank the experience for what it was. Now is a time for a new you to be born. It is a time to let go of the past and shine brighter with love at the core of your being and at the forefront of the purpose of your life.
