The Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Scorpio is taking off now. Are you packed and ready to go? This spaceship is going long and wide. So this article is going full-length and over one thousand words. Please don’t be a lazy reader! The Magickal powers of Scorpio make manifesting your desires accessible. So take some time to conjure thy will be done. What begins during this time will last. Don’t start out on the wrong foot with this beast.
This Eclipse occurs at zero degrees Scorpio. Zero degrees of any fixed sign is a very powerful point. Personally I feel that Scorpio is the most revered and feared of the three fixies. Scorpio itself is a power hungry sign. It demands, wants and desires. It also tends to fall into excess. A person being swallowed by Pluto will dive willingly, head first into the darkness. They may stay submerged so long you’d think they’re dead, dying or just patiently waiting the process of rebirth. People “lose” years of their lives living in the lessons of Pluto. Then suddenly they’re reborn as glorious dragons, looking to conquer the world. No sign remains of their journey, only a longing drive in their eye. The drive of passion. What is fueling you?

When darkness comes, you need more darkness if you’re ever going to find the light. As the struggle of Earth existence descends upon you, you must find a way to harness the power of that struggle to turn death into rebirth. But it is so pressurized and absolutely relentless a path to walk. Everything you meet reflects the same destiny-dilemma. For you are being pulled through the collective nightmare by an immense evolutionary force, and that means feeling everything, experiencing all of it, and letting everything go. Those pulled in to such a radical track develop core perseverance magnificently and learn to be light while superheavy, and to stay loose while bearing down in tight passages. Eventually, glorious things happen and you can emerge into a whole other reality, knowing how purposeful every step has been, that all of it was necessary and redemptively built a character strength of a mighty fiber, as you knew it would.
Todays Sun Occult ushers in the end of this year’s Mercury retrograde cycle. It symbolizes the ending of an era. The Solar Eclipse in Scorpio whispers deep secrets about what’s to come. Listen closely to what he says.
What is to come is what you decide. I cannot stress this enough. Are you swimming so fast or just stalling in the current? Are you using your magick or just throwing it away? This event will prove dramatic, poised and ready to shift some major shit in your life. Are you open to that? Are you ready to be reborn? The Phoenix birthed from the ashes becomes the Eagle in the sky. Will you be the biggest Eagle? Because that’s surely my plan.
Then it happens, Pluto, once convincing you to go under, will vomit you forth. Into your own filth and scum, the afterbirth writhes around your body. Lessons, huge and painful, old yet still freshly bloodied. We are in pain and so we are sought out. People who have hurt you, people who know your secrets, all come bubbling forth. You must learn to defend yourself. You must learn to claim your power. You must learn what it means to be engrossed with a desire and thirst for life. Otherwise there is no reason to fight. It’s time. In order to be raw we first must be peeled. If it’s dead, let it go.
I promise to make you more alive than you’ve ever been. For the first time you’ll see your pores opening like the gills of fish and you’ll hear the noise of blood in galleries and feel light gliding on your corneas like the dragging of a dress across the floor. For the first time, you’ll note gravity’s prick like a thorn in your heel, and our shoulder blades will hurt with the imperative of wings. I promise to make you so alive that the fall of dust on furniture will deafen you, and you’ll feel your eyebrows like two wounds forming and your memories will seem to begin with the creation of the world.

AstroSync Tip: The brief span of the Moon Occulting the Sun will trigger a reset in your cosmic circuit board. It’s a great way to rid yourself of cling ons, viruses and the like.
With a nice fresh slate it’s a good point to start something new. The event occurring at zero Scorpio especially suggests Occultic arts. Take a class in Astrology, study Tarot or delve into the world of Numerology. These studies will help you become a master of managing vampires and other nuisances in the energetic realm. Nobody likes an energy succubus around. Learn how to manage that shit! Otherwise those walkers are gonna eat ya.
A Solar Eclipse is our energetic reset button. Time to power down the i-am-not-a-Mac and give yourself a much needed break. The circuit will short out come happy hour on the 23rd. Give yourself real happy hour and schedule something Occultic and/or pleasurable for yourself during that time. Come dinner time the Sun’s circuit will be back up and running. This is a good time for the Feminine to overtake the Masculine. It will be a blip of a moment, which will soon be the future. We are already here. Choose wisely what you bring to the collective table.
Hopefully you’ve been paying attention these past few weeks and cleaning house. Believe me, you do not want Pluto going through your Karmic darkness before you have a chance to sort it out. Scorpio is not a friendly laundry buddy. This is literally last call for Karmic clearing, all remaining dust bunnies will be burned in Pluto’s hellfire. Put it all down and back away slowly. Seriously, run.
To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float. Alan Watts
Don’t create your future carelessly. This is a very important time. There will not be another Scorpio Solar Eclipse for almost a decade. Remember your ten year plan from childhood, high school, college and beyond? Reanalyze that vision board and set a fresh direction. This step is all about starting over. Failure is in the past. The past is so over! Just move forward, always keeping your eye on the goal.
Sometimes what we think we need isn’t what we need at all. Sometimes what we think we need is simply a stepping stone on our path to greatness. Don’t get hung up on details you may not fully understand. In ten years you’ll look back and say Ah ha, that was the big picture. I see it now! For now you must be brave and just follow the path you desire.
Know that the satisfaction of passion is enough to pursue the goal.
Pluto wants to know where we find the passion in our life. Because really, what is life without passion? It is a life fully lost. We are being birthed for a new beginning. If you’ve buried tidbits deep into the recesses of your pockets you are likely experiencing these things over again. Let those crumbs go! You’ve got entire slices of pie coming your way. Don’t get lost on lessons of crumbs. Don’t sell yourself short.
During this event take time to cultivate power and magick in your life. If you’ve been wanting to build that magnificent Altar or sacred space then today is your day. Altars are ideal locations for storing the energy you create. Use the power of the Moon Occulting the Sun to bring out your sacred Feminine powers. Discover the sacred Feminine in your chart. What is your Witch lineage? Where do your powers hide? Ask me, lets schedule a reading! Or as I like to say Witch witch is which?!
I am based in New Orleans. The Eclipse in this area of North America will peak between 4:30 and 5:00 pm CST for us here. We are also just West of the ecliptic peak which is right around Pensacola, Florida. They will get a great show.
Plant your solar seeds of creation, for today the Moon overtakes her Sun.
This event is especially powerful for all fixed signs, for Leo and Cancer star people, and obviously for Scorpios.
Don’t forget to hug your lover(s) because Pluto loves a good love fest
Don’t let yourself be let down. After you get let down, listen to Lucky. Because we are standing on the edge… It’s going to be a glorious day.
Scorpio Bonus Round:
Scorpio promises it won’t ever forget what you say. It also swears to never leave you alone. That’s correct, Pluto is the planet who’s obsessed with you. That’s why when you meet a Scorpio star, moon or rising person you just know it. But if you meet a mutable sign like a Cancer you probably wouldn’t know right away. That’s because Pluto is very dark and dominant. Never have I met a Pluto person who didn’t energetically linger. Scorpio may not be the energy ruler like Aquarius. It may not be a visionary like Jupiter. It surely is not the Fireball of Leo. Scorpio possesses it’s own magick. For Pluto can convince every other planet to lend their powers to him. He is the Occult orchestrator and events manager of the sky. All shall yield his requests or they be laid asunder.
