Eclipse Season incoming!
It’s been a while since the last set of Eclipses – around six months or so – making it time for the Universe to press her foot on the accelerator and hit the fast forward button. Because that’s precisely what Eclipses are all about – taking a giant leap and navigating sudden, large-scale changes.
Collectively, we’ll see the world go through the transformative, death-and-rebirth process of the Scorpion, but we’ll see that happening in our own lives, too.
See, a Solar Eclipse is really just a supercharged New Moon. A New Moon that packs a punch. Sometimes, a Solar Eclipse is easier to handle than a Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) because it’s about beginnings, and who doesn’t love a new start?
With that said, this Solar Eclipse is a little scary. Just a little. It falls in Scorpio, which is not a comfortable sign for the Moon to be in. But this is the zodiac sign of transmutation and evolution, which is what we should be focusing on doing this Eclipse. What in our life needs to change – drastically? What do we need to let go of to move to the next level?
For most of us, the answer is likely to have to do with our relationships, seeing as Venus is in a tight conjunction to this Eclipse. Now’s the time to affect change in our love lives, to the point where we either let go entirely or allow a 180-degree shift to take place. Now’s the time to level up in terms of intimacy and closeness and figure out how to be the very best team we can be.
Mars, the ruler of this Eclipse (traditionally speaking), is in his shadow phase in Gemini, about to turn retrograde. He’s in a tricky square with Neptune, so what you see is not necessarily what you will get right now. Use the powerful energy of Scorpio to ensure you’re doing everything above board and with a sense of integrity, and don’t entertain a second of dishonesty. If you don’t know what to do, trust that the Universe will take care of it and that your luck is changing, one way or the other.
Now, for your Horoscopes:
Aries & Aries Rising (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio
New Moons are about beginnings, which you love. However, this particular New Moon smacks of endings and a chapter’s closing. This could feel scary for you but focus on the next door that’s opening rather than what’s behind you. Don’t be afraid to dive into the icky, mucky shadowy parts of you that arise from fear. Facing your dark side will help you grow stronger and become more authentic in the long run, so trust in the process.
Taurus & Taurus Rising (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio
A New Moon in your opposite zodiac sign of Scorpio reflects primarily on your relationships, Taurus. Massive shifts could be made here in the next few months, as the seed for change is planted right now, at this very moment. Being someone that tends to resist change and prefers to stay in your comfort zone, this may be a challenge. But being too comfortable means that you never evolve, and evolution may be precisely what you – and your relationships – need right now. Stay open to powerful new connections.
Gemini & Gemini Rising (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio
Now’s the time to completely release and let go of a particular lifestyle habit that’s been holding you down and even affecting your health and wellbeing. You might be far more attached than you ever thought, so it’ll take courage to move away from what felt like a crutch. The same applies to a particular work situation that may have become just a little too toxic for your liking. These next few weeks may unfold a new professional adventure for you, even if you can’t see it now.
Cancer & Cancer Rising (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio
This could be a particularly passionate and sensual New Moon for you, seeing as it unfolds in the area of your Astrology chart connected to romance, dating, and chemistry. Maybe you’re taking a new lover in these next few months, or perhaps you’re thinking about taking an existing connection to the next level. Whatever you do, it seems as if there’s plenty of intensity attached to the situation. Perhaps a little too much, so be sure that you aren’t obsessing and trust that the Universe has your back.
Leo & Leo Rising (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) During the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio
These next few months may reveal that it’s time to move away, physically or figuratively. Move away from a place that is causing you heartache, a place that you used to call home. Or, perhaps it’s a moment to shift away from toxic family dynamics that drain you and push you to your limit. Either way, there’s a chance of evolution and growth, and plenty of love, too, despite the potential drama. Focus on the love, and everything else will fall into place. Focus on creating a safe foundation for yourself, on creating a place where you feel you belong.
Virgo & Virgo Rising (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) During the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio
What a busy mind you’ve going on right now! You’re normally an overthinker, and this Solar Eclipse may have your brain on steroids at the moment. Is there a way to take these thoughts and transmute them into action? Perhaps by enrolling in a deep-dive course or workshop, taking on a coaching gig, writing a blog, or simply talking to a trusted counselor? These are all great ways to use the powerful mental energy building up for you at the moment.
Libra & Libra Rising (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio
This Eclipse has to do with your physical and emotional resources; what you have, in other words, whether it’s tangible or in the form of skills and talents to offer. You might find yourself somewhat possessive and fearful of letting go, but when you let go, you’ll find greater reward. Make wise investments from this point onwards, and be sure to use what you have to get to where you want to go. Consider your values very carefully and makes changes where needed. What may have been important to you a year ago might not be the case anymore.
Scorpio & Scorpio Rising (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio
A Solar Eclipse in your sign – how special and important for you! It’s like having another birthday, so think of this as the Universe offering you another chance to start over. What in your world needs to evolve? Your career? Love life? Finances? Values? Or perhaps it’s you that needs to transform. State your intentions for the next few months – or the next few years – and develop tangible goals to get there. Be ready to welcome swift and sudden change, and don’t resist the process that gets you to a new chapter.
Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio
This could be an intense Eclipse for you. It happens in an area of your Astrology chart related to mental and spiritual wellbeing. You may want to take a few days to meditate, pray and get some clarity, or else you might be overwhelmed with your own shadow material. What do you believe in? As a Sagittarius type, it’s important for you to have a guiding philosophy and north star that you can orientate yourself toward. Now’s the time to rid yourself of toxic ideas and patterns that keep you down and to take time to reinvent yourself from within.
Capricorn & Capricorn Rising (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) During the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio
Scorpio is a sign you can totally get behind. You love this powerful and ambitious energy, this energy that makes you want to take a calculated risk. Now’s your moment to dream up some big aspirations and goals and think about how you’re strategically going to get to a future point. What’s your five-year plan? Do you have one? Does it need to change? Do you need to enlist the help and support of your friends and community? Or are you going it alone? These are just a few questions to ask yourself. This may also be a time to review your social circle and see who needs to be purged from your life.
Aquarius & Aquarius Rising (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) During the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio
Scorpio is your career zodiac sign. And thus, a Solar Eclipse here can herald a very important new start in the months, even years, to come. With this in mind, you might be contemplating taking a giant leap, now or in the future. Ensure that any leap you take is empowering you and helping you to stay true to your integrity and values. Don’t be tempted to stoop to a lower level to get ahead, and be unafraid to state exactly where you stand. This way, you’ll gain public admiration for your grit and determination. Go, you.
Pisces & Pisces Rising (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio
This New Moon Eclipse is powerful; make no mistake about it. It happens in the most spiritual zone of your Astrology chart, which means that you might be able to take leaps and bounds when it comes to your inner growth. It’s also a great time to travel or take on a course of studies or teaching. It’ll come with a price, though, so beware of that, and know that it’ll be a transformative, sometimes intense process whatever you decide to do. This Eclipse is taking no prisoners.
