If you read last month’s column and/or you follow astrology you might look at November and wonder, is this just more of the same? The thinking and communication planet Mercury is still moving in a retrograde pattern and we start the month with an Eclipse. Even though these patterns are continuations of a sort, in November we start to emerge from the mysterious and healing waters of Scorpio with a changed perspective. Mercury will end its retrograde on Sunday November 10th. Expect additional Insights and clearer answers to be emerging throughout the month.
The partner to the Lunar Eclipse last month is the New Moon Solar Eclipse on November 3rd. This time, the Moon will come in-between the Earth and the Sun temporarily disrupting the solar radiation and electro-magnetic transmission. Like the Lunar Eclipse, this can feel like our psychological, emotional and spiritual systems are being rebooted. But this time, the more masculine and yang rational mind is eclipsed by the more yin intuitive heart. Both the Sun and Moon will be moving through the sign of Scorpio which represents our need for transformation and even cathartic change.
This Solar Eclipse brings to mind the Hawaiian Goddess of volcanoes, Pele. The fiery, raging energy of the volcano is expressive, destructive and creative. It may put us in touch with deep, raw and almost instinctual emotions. The cosmic theme song this month might be “Shout” by Tears for Fears. But take heart; Solar Eclipses are associated with new beginnings. We don’t need to wait until the New Year to set some new intentions. And as we move into the holidays we can be more focused and clear about our feelings, more direct in our actions and behaviors, and more authentically ourselves. Let it all out!
