Has anyone noticed just how much perspective on the past + the opportunity to release elements of it have come up lately? It’s definitely more intense than the standard Mercury Retrograde s.n.a.f.u.
You can see this two ways – shrug it off as “the Eclipse” because Scorpio-Eclipse-Halloween-Mercury Retro in the sign of relationships covers a variety of voodoo, yes?
OR if you really want to run some astro-fuqery on this thing, think about this. Venus went Direct in Capricorn at 13 degrees in early Feb – at the same time that the North Node of the Moon was nearing Zero Scorpio, the degree of the Eclipse now starting to happen. That whole Venus Retro in Capricorn just may have passed without overt action but it was fateful synchronicity to the max.
And now, with the Eclipse at Zero Scorpio – the Sun + Venus + the Moon – that Venus Direct point of early Feb is being also activated by our friends Uranus + Pluto + Eros. So, think about what got signaled, sparked or that began in February and could not be primed to go ape? On this Eclipse, Venus is at the point the North Node was when she turned Direct. Drill down to where you were psychologically at, the changes you effected in Feb for the omg moment.
If you want to turn totally bats with astro-fuqery, the Eclipse is square asteroid Persephone in Aquarius, for extra oomph. Yes, Mrs Pluto.
So it’s potent in some many different ways, a distinct farewell to your past and the primal start-point for the final six months of Zap Zone intensity. The next Uranus-Pluto square is in December. A.k.a soon. If this is doing your head in, fret not, i take it all into account when doing your Horoscopes.
But if you want to discuss, here is just one more point – the urges/raw instinct/vibe of Feb set the scene for April which feeds into the Z.Z. of December and then March. The current thing is the psychological prequel. Pluto rules Scorpio. This is a Plutonic Eclipse.
Remember that the struggle of the caterpillar to get out of the sticky cocoon is what forces blood into its wings so it can fly.
