This eclipse (today at 5:13 pm est) is smack dab on my Neptune, which is also my chart's ruler. I'm quickly losing words, and plan to go with the spacy flow for the next while. Suzi Dronzek of Starcana tweeted this: "Swimming blindly into dark waters, we face the unknown & trust our 'feelers.'"
The new Moon and eclipse is at 22 Scorpio. Author-astrologer Kim Falconer gave me a new insight on Scorpio, from her newsletter. She writes, "Where we find Scorpio in the horoscope is where we need to experience life 'in the moment' and on the edge. It is where we need to merge our energy with others to create something we could not do on our own. This erotic merging can not transpire until we have severed our umbilical ties with the past. To this end, Scorpio is about the enticement to leave the juvenile ties that keep us dependent so we may form adult-to-adult relationships. Scorpio asks that we leave our familiar ground, be it supportive or destructive, and venture out into the world to re-create ourselves anew."
For seekers, this eclipse has a kick to it, with Saturn also in Scorpio. To mull over standout themes, look at the featured house (In the birth chart) for this solar eclipse, and also the one that comes next. They are polarities, for a companion volume of themes over the two week eclipse period. Then look at any planets in close contact with the eclipse, for the "eclipse ruler."
