The Scorpio New Moon occurred this morning at 5:50 am MST at 11 degrees Scorpio 15 minutes. This New Moon is also a rare Solar Eclipse! Here’s the chart: 2013ScorpioNewMoonSolarEclipse. Scorpio rules evolution. Scorpio rules choices. It also rules power. The most powerful human attribute is free will choice. Why? Because human evolution is facilitated through the power of free will choices. Of course the wisest free will choices use power to create, heal and evolve, not to control, manipulate or destroy. How do you use your power? How powerful or powerless do you feel?
Science now knows that consciousness creates reality. Religion teaches us that we’re made in the image of our divine Creator which makes us ‘co-creators.’ What are your thoughts, deeds and beliefs (free-will choices) co-creating?
Scorpio’s planetary ruler, Pluto, represents the Soul and its deepest desires. Every Soul has two opposite and competing desires; the desire to separate from the divine Source that created it and the desire to return to that same Source. Throughout countless lifetimes, Souls exhaust their separating desires (material world/matter) and turn their attention more and more to the desire to return to their divine creative Source (non-material world/Spirit).
Solar Eclipses are powerful New Moons that ‘reboot’ cosmic energies. Eclipses are evolutionary gateways. This Scorpio New Moon/Solar Eclipse also carries the energy of Saturn (limits, responsibility, authority) and Mercury retrograde (intuitive mind, hidden info/knowledge) in addition to the Sun and Moon. It will bring deeply held emotions and wounds to the surface and reveal powerful dark hidden secrets.
Whatever ‘comes up’ or ‘comes out’ will do so because of an evolutionary intention to metamorphose its associated limitations that are now preventing further growth. Scorpio always advises us to confront whatever comes to the surface or gets revealed, to face it squarely, head-on, because it’s ready to evolve, heal and transform.
Pluto rules this New Moon/Eclipse. It’s been transiting through Capricorn (social structures/systems) since 2008. It was squared (90 degree angle) for the fourth of seven total times by Uranus in Aries on November 1st reaching the mid-way point of this extraordinary celestial event that reflects worldwide social/political changes that have been unfolding over the past several years including: the global economic downturn, America’s first African American President, the Arab Spring/Summer and Syria joining the world treaty banning chemical weapons. Breakthroughs and changes of this magnitude will continue to powerfully manifest over the coming days, weeks and months, fueled by the power of Scorpio and the free will choices it represents, both individually, and collectively.
So be exceedingly mindful of choices made now as they will likely have far-reaching consequences and perhaps weightier outcomes than intended. Choose peace. Choose love. Choose healing. Choose self-empowerment. Choose consciously. Choose wisely…
