Scorpio Solar Eclipse: Regenerative Journeys

Scorpio Solar Eclipse: Regenerative Journeys

We are taught to be afraid of the dark. We are taught to be afraid of difference. We are taught to be afraid of each other. We are taught to be afraid. Period.

Difference is a construct. Difference separates us. Separation makes it possible to harm one another and feel justified in doing so. There are differences between us. That’s what makes us beautiful. Differences can be feared or respected; honored or betrayed. Difference is often used against the “different.”

What is powerful has been feared for thousands of years.

What is feared gets demonized. What is feared gets projected onto another; onto whole cultures, whole nations, whole orientations.

What we fear is complex. What we fear is collective. What we fear is also personal. Some fear their power, their greatness and their fate. Others fear their despicable, unsocialized, unsavory personality traits. Many fear abandonment, loss of control and pain. Most of us fear some combination of all of that plus a little extra thrown in for good personal measure.

Many can wield some part of institutionalized power to try to protect from such pain. Projecting our fears onto others can appear to momentarily save us from having to take a good long look in the mirror. But we all end up on a deathbed someday with nothing but those projections to keep us company. We all have to face the compilation of denial and dismissal that we participated in during our time here.

We can deal with it now or we can deal with it then, but deal with it we must.

The second of October’s eclipses occurs on Thursday, October 23rd at 5:56 pm EST. The sun, moon and Venus will all be perfectly aligned at zero plus degrees of Scorpio (Venus just a few hairs shy of being exactly conjunct the eclipse) with Pallas Athene just a degree away. This means that all three planets enter the sign mere hours before the eclipse. One planet changing signs is a big deal; three changing signs and then all being involved in an eclipse is something else entirely. 

This is a solar eclipse. This is a new moon. This is Scorpio. This is Dark. Goddess. Goodness.

The dark phase of the moon, of the year and of any part of any cycle was
