The Second Solar Eclipse of the year on October 23 is at Zero degrees of Scorpio @ 2:56 pm PDT/ 5:56 pm EDT/9:56 pm GMT is a partial one.
Nevertheless it will be INTENSE, OBSESSIVE, LOVE vs. POWER, SEX, CONTROL ISSUES DYING
It’s very special, as the Planet/Goddess Venus is conjunct to the Sun and the Moon, THE GODDESS Venus is our Cosmic guide, way shower initiatrix and hostess as the world descends with Her into the Underworld for the death of the ego to be rebirthed as a purified Love sourced identity as Quan YIN, Avalokitishvara The Goddess or the Feminine form of compassion.
I’m calling this Eclipse a QUANTUM YIN transformation
The DIVINE FEMININE exists in all beings hearts whether in form as a man or a woman.
Venus was embodied as the original Sumerian Goddess Innana who was worshipped over 5,000 years ago in Babylon where present day Baghdad is and the ancient city of Uruk. Inanna’s archetypal mythic descent into the Underworld is the story of Venus’ 5 fold cycle from an Evening star to a Dawn Star. Inanna supposedly went to the land of the dead to mourn for her sister Erechkigal’s husband Nergal who was the God of Plagues. I thought this was an interesting detail in relation to the current EBOLA virus scares.
Inanna goes through 7 stages or levels of initiation. As she descends she needs to drop another item of power, until she is naked, stripped of her ego. Inanna is sentenced to die by the spirits of the underworld. She is turned in to a rotting corpse and hung on a nail. But she had sent helpers to come to her aid beforehand. Her life is bargained for and Inanna is the only being who rises from the dead reborn. She sends her consort Damuzzi as her replacement to the Underworld, as he has abused the power which she gave him.
We are all being initiated like INANNA into the Underworld now. No matter how black, dark, fearsome, plague filled, it seems. We must be regal, queenly, Goddess-like and hold our heads high. Inanna/Venus is a clever warrior Goddess. with escape methods in place. We too must have escape plans, friends, supporters and Plan B ready to go.
You must be ready to leave all of your ego attachments to your stuff behind. Your title, trophies, cars, credit cards, education, salary, addictions, all your material things and your stories which identity you behind to truly die and be reborn. Solar Eclipses always carried fated deaths of famous leaders historically.
Are you ready to rock and roll?
Here’s a short checklist of aspects – DO NOTE if you have planets, angels etc. conjunct to, opposing or squaring these points where you will be impacted and how by the houses..
1.CARDINAL CROSSES -Uranus and Pluto ongoing squares + Mercury Retrograde conjunct the North Node at 17-19 degrees Libra in the mix
2. SCORPIO STELLIUM
Four planets in Scorpio SUN MOON VENUS = Asteroid ATHENA all with in one degree of each other + SATURN + dwarf planet CERES
3. ZERO degrees of any sign heralds new BEGINNINGS, in SCORPIO new powerful emotional soul transformations deaths and rebirths. All fixed signs.
4. MARS- where the action is, is on the Galactic Center at 28 degrees Sagittarius
5. Lilith at 26 degrees of Leo trines Mars and the Galactic Center- deep dark Feminine shadows courage heart and leadership
5. Jupiter at 19 degrees Leo is trining Uranus and the South Node- big changes, letting go of past
6. SUN MOON VENUS Trine Neptune in Pisces- new spiritual awakenings
7. Asteroids Juno @ 6 degrees of Leo is square to Asteroid Vesta @ 8 degrees Sagittarius in square to Neptune in Pisces which is quincunx to JUNO in LEO.
PARTIAL SCORPIO SOLAR ECLIPSE
Scorpio is the 8th sign, 8 is INFINITY when turned horizontally. We are dealing with the Great Mysteries of sex, money power, life death and rebirth in Scorpio.
We are tapping into a deeper awareness of our unconscious motivations on more profound emotional levels on this eclipse. Solar eclipses affect the daylight masculine consciousness. The Sun’s light is temporarily dimmed by the Moon passing in front of it, the FEMININE which is the instincts, unconscious feeling tone of the people disrupts the day worlds “everything is perfectly normal” routine..
Scorpio is the DEATH CARD #13 in the TAROT
which is THE Great Mystery. whose name and meaning is closest to God, the Void, the Goddess, all that is and is NOT, Nothingness.
the primal life force. What happens when SEX is eclipsed by LOVE? When sex as violence/Rape is no longer possible?
IN ORDER TO BE REBORN SOMETHING MUST DIE. THAT IS OBVIOUS,
in any newness- be it a relationship, becoming a mother, getting married, the old self as single, must die for the new coupling to be born.
WHAT do you need to let go of within you, your own shadow and unconscious now so that you may ascend into new awareness of an egoless state?
THE ECLIPSE will be most visible from northern California right across the Southern United states,Northern Mexico across to Florida and east to Montreal Canada and North eastern Russia. The areas where the eclipses is most visible is where the strongest effects are.It will be less visible right across North America except for the east coast of the U.S.and Canada.
The purple and red are visibility path
Scorpio Issues SEX MONEY POWER OVER, SECRETS, TAXES
A Solar Eclipse brings to light the deep darkest secrets. Many relationships will break up under the Scorpio eclipse. Things will feel EVEN MORE INTENSE than they already do.
MARS is the ancient planetary ruler of Scorpio. Mars rules the first decan of Scorpio as well so more powerful. Mar is sitting up in the 9th house on the Galactic Center- beam me in Scotty. This is a great opportunity to ask direct questions with the Big Brain- the Void itself.
VENUS is less than 20 minutes separated from the SUN and MOON in combustion. This is like being a willing sacrifice, letting the old father/ mother scripts, the memories and attachments be totally burned away. All the old vestiges of the self are destroyed and consumed by both the Sun, the Father and the Moon the mother leaving one as vulnerable and new as a newborn babe.
Mercury RETROGRADE conjunct the North Node
Retrograde Mercury has just conjunct the Sun October 16, Mercury has been enthroned. The Retrograde question is: Are we operating in a balanced conscious way? We need to be detached in the midst of tumultuous emotions. This is a good thing.We aren’t ready to move forward until Mercury is out of the retrograde shadow November 10.
Use this super powerful Scorpio solar eclipse to tally transform every aspect of your life.
Scorpio is SOUL Lessons, soul work, that is what each of us came to earth to work on.
Die to be reborn and the Love of the Goddess will guide your heart.
