Uh oh! If you have any major secrets or are telling big whoppers (lies) you may find your life in an upheaval with the NEW MOON Eclipse which is occurring today, November 13, 2012 at 5:08 EST at 21degrees 57 minutes Scorpio. Scorpio is an intense sign and deeply emotional. Eclipses, especially Solar ones bring to the surface things in your life that you may find difficult to look at and try to suppress them. Not happening. Just face whatever shows up and open to walking through it.
It is interesting to note that the scandal which has affected CIA Director Petraeus in the last few days has occurred right before the New Moon Eclipse. This is why I say to you pay attention because the stars are on the money. What happened with David Petraeus? His world has collapsed because his extramarital affair has surfaced. Oh really. Pluto, the planet of transformation, is transiting his Chiron, the wounded healer. Chiron in your birth blueprint represents where you are most vulnerable and wounded. I don’t have a chart for Petraeus but I do know that Pluto has been hovering over his Chiron. So, it looks like it transformed and brought to the surface some old wounds and hidden things that need to be healed with the help of old New Moon Eclipse energy. He is a Scorpio and the news happened right around his birthday of November 7. How uncanny, huh? Pluto is squaring Uranus generally so it continues to open up the old paradigm and expose something new. And since the Sun and Moon are in Scorpio at the New Moon time it shows up as sex, sex, lies, secrets. Soap opera anyone?
What else does this NEW MOON Eclipse bring? Depending on your chart is whether this energy will affect you in an intense way. What planets do you have at almost 22 degrees Scorpio, Taurus, Leo or Aquarius? Or in which house does it fall? No matter what is going on the bottomline is first that it can be a new beginning wherever it occurs. It continues to communicate the message dear ones that you need to be your authentic self no matter what is going on in your life. The Scorpio New Moon Eclipse can take you down in a big way (like Petraeus) or lift you into a new direction. Which would you life? Then be authentic in your dealings with everyone…always. There are many mean people surfacing lately and that is what you need to avoid. Treat people kindly without that mean edge. Or if you are narrow-minded, please give it up already. Reacting with mean words or closed mind will only bring on the Scorpion sting. And Scorpio may forgive but never forgets. Keep that in mind.
This New Moon aspects the North Node or Dragon’s Head and it may bring good fortune to some of you or the new direction as mentioned previously. New starts are good now and the old has to be let go. I have said this many times and there are some of you who just refuse to understand how important it is to step out of the past and walk on the path that brought you into this lifetime. You need to release those entrenched demons which continue to plague your existence and with Chiron going direct tomorrow, you can begin to do so. With Neptune already direct a couple of days ago it is time to weave the spirit back into your daily living and get on with your truth. The need for holding on to any people or things which have no relevance to your new direction is now over. Release and move on. You will know shortly why I say this. With the South Node in Taurus you need to reconsider your values and ownership. It is time to use the energy to think about partnering and moving forward in cooperative efforts and merging the power with others.
Since Mercury is still retrograde until the 26th and the only major aspect on the New Moon is Neptune squaring (in conflict) with Mercury communication may get a bit murky. The fog of Neptune can bring deception to the forefront. You need to be able to discern the truth or Neptune will confuse the issues. Listen carefully. Discernment is the key. Mercury continues retrograde motion into Scorpio hours after the New Moon Eclipse. The lightness and truth of Sagittarius is now brought into the deep dark crevices of Scorpio. You begin to transform the hidden facets that no longer serve you. It begins to shine that light into the depths of your psyche.
Do we have any victims out there? Are you one? Do you like to play that part in the drama of life? Victimhood can easily emerge from the depths of your mind during the New Moon energy. Is this really how you choose to go through life? That’s too much drama for me. The worst of the victim feelings may be terribly blatant. Are you going to continue to blame everyone and everything in your life for your choices? Is this you? C’mon already dear ones, start etching out a new and better thinking pattern. The emotional letting go of your demons is available to you. Stop blocking your way. Do you really need negative attention creating chaos around you on your new path? No one can control anything in life. Oh, yes, you can try your darndest, but it will be in vain. Give it up.
With Neptune squaring Mercury retrograde the chances of lots of toxicity being present…ok, it is already surrounding you, but it will still be present with full effects. Watch for sudden allergies or autoimmune system issues. More toxins are in food, water and environment. If you consume alcohol at this time, one drink may feel like 20. Keep your eyes open (all them including the 3rd eye). Is it real or is it an illusion. Keep your eyes open so that you can discern whether what you are hearing or seeing is true. This is a wonderful time for creativity even with the toxins swirling in your life. Creative writing and poetry are especially favored. Lock yourself in the tower and create a masterpiece. Art works too!
Whichever house this New Moon Eclipse falls in is where you are most likely to have to make a change for the better. Protect yourself from any mean angry people wherever you may be. This can occur for the next 6 months. In my own chart it shows up in my 6th house. Fitness program here I come. EEK. And probably some changes in my daily life occur. Try opening your heart and letting unconditional love move through you. Even though it may be an intense time let the Light shine brightly within so others can feel your truth.
Many blessings dear ones and start planning to take the next small leap after Mercury goes direct on the 26th of November. Until again. Love, Jan
