This celestial event is sending some deep thoughts our way as it also goes down during a Mercury Retrograde, which always calls for review and reflection.
While the Scorpio energy can sometimes feel dark, obsessive or like a crisis, we’ll each be given an opportunity to explore new avenues of the psych. Many Zodiac souls may find this cosmic climate to be particularly challenging as foundations, relationships and boundaries are tested. Though each sign will experience this energy differently, major themes around letting go will come to fruition on a collective scale.
The moon represents our emotional nature, habits, patterns, and instincts. When the moon is in eclipse, it’s as if the shadow parts of ourselves come to the surface. It can be a time of great intensity as we confront aspects of ourselves that we may have avoided or denied. If you just feel emotional, know that this is a transient experience. If you become emotional because somebody else said or did something to you, instead of blaming the other person, now is an excellent time to understand the mental and emotional pattern we carry within us.
Drum-roll of the day? Clear out what must go, so you’ll be ready to build by the time the full moon lunar eclipse in Taurus manifests on October 28th later this year.

The Aries new moon solar eclipse opens the first eclipse portal for 2023. Aries is a fire sign and the element fire, which lives in us all, gives us strength, courage, passion and determination. When burning too strong, however, fire can lead to anger, attacks, destruction and being too impulsive or ego-driven. So, balancing our own inner fire may be a theme around this eclipse.
All eclipses operate as resets. This one falls at 29 degrees in Aries, the zodiac’s final degree. The final degree of any zodiac sign is considered a highly charged and karmic point and all combined indicate a profound karmic event or destiny that is unfolding. Collectively as well as individually.
If this wasn't a lot as is, we also have Pluto, God of the Underworld, in the mix. Pluto’s presence can help to bring never-imagined opportunities and awakenings that help us to completely rebirth and transform into a higher version of ourselves. Most likely, this lunar event will clear up any confusion as to if you should stay in a situation or not. There might be an urge to make impulsive moves, but this will only set you back. Instead, find your inner tranquility and let it play out as it is meant to.
Mercury, the planet of communication conjuncts Uranus in Taurus on this day and turn retrograde. Yes, a big week is here let's just say.

As we are moving into another eclipse season we will see dramatic changes, sometimes crises, and breakthroughs in the world around us and in our personal lives. Now we are heading into the Aries/Libra axis with the first one being a new moon solar eclipse on April 20th. We are also ending the Taurus/Scorpio one later this year, but how could all this influence you? What signs should you be aware of?
We predominantly look at the houses where the eclipses fall, indicating areas in life where these major changes or endings will occur. The houses come in pairs, situated opposite each other in the natal chart. Here below is a short guideline for you. Look for Aries/Libra as well as the overlapping Taurus/Scorpio axis.
House 1 - House 7
Identity and self vs partner and/or close relationship.
House 2 - House 8
Finances and assets, yours and/or others. In depth (psychological) insights.
House 3 - House 9
Communication, teaching, learning and travels. Siblings.
House 4 - House 10
Domestic life vs career and public life. Parents.
House 5 - House 11
Leisure, activity and children vs alliances, groups and friends.
House 6 - House 12
Health, daily routines and work vs solitude, spirituality and "enemies" (people you don't get along with)
In short, the Moon in Astrology represents our needs, feeling and reactions but her placement and aspects also shows how we participate in life. The Lunar Eclipse highlights 'How do I engage?' whereas the Solar Eclipse asks 'How does this effect me?'

The Libra full moon is always a great time to slow down, smell the roses, and try to tip the scales back into balance if you’re feeling depleted
Libra, rules partnership, diplomacy, compromise, romance and beauty. These people are known for their communication skills and ability to meditate in refined ways. This lunar event asks each of us; How well do you connect with others? Especially if there's a little tension, socially, politically and/or religiously.
The moon in Libra will call for us to compromise, aim for tact and partnership, while the opposing sun in Aries might be more combative. You are creating your world, one thought at a time. That means you can manifest a new and improved life simply by changing your habitual thinking. And that is the message of this full moon!
Libra Note to Self: I put things into perspective by focusing on the bigger picture.
