'When the darkness fades away' by intano

‘When the darkness fades away’ by intano

Welcome to the shadow of the Eclipse! If the emails and posts I’ve been receiving are anything to go by, we are all connecting to the transformational energy with varying degrees of drama.

And remember, ‘drama’ isn’t necessarily a bad word, especial for Scorpio – which we all have somewhere in our charts!

The trick is to leverage this powerful lunar event and ride the waves of intensity to our own evolution, as opposed to feeling the ‘victim’ of outer circumstances. It’s the time to remember:

There is no spoon.

This lunar eclipse is a point of release where old emotions are purged, projects completed, plans come to fruition. If things are going ’tilt’ it represents an area of life that want reexamination, simple as that. It may help to think back to April 2005 and the six months after for hints as to what is being stirred up.

LON – Thursday – 20:57
SYD – Friday– 05:57

The intensity of the days surrounding this augmented Full Moon depend on where in your chart the eclipse takes place (and how willing you are to feel you feelings!) and if there are any personal planets being activated. Find the houses were 5 degrees of Taurus and Scorpio are located in your natal chart for further insights. Because Saturn is so powerfully connected to the eclipse, we want to ‘get serious’ about living this area of life authentically. Ask, what is ripe for harvest here? What must be plowed back into the soil? How can I move forward? The answers are within. You decide!

Note also that Mars (god of war) is conjunct the sun (light of consciousness) during the eclipse. This heats up the events, inner and outer, making for some sizzling intensity. There will be ACTION!

The Taurus – Scorpio Dynamic

The way up is the way down.

These two signs are traditionally ruled by Venus and Mars/Pluto respectively. Total opposites. The polarity involved is a love verse power over dilemma in that Taurus yearns for peace at the expense of change and Scorpio yearns for change at the expense of peace. Taurus, in this sense, is passive and Scorpio ruthlessly active.

An eclipse involving these signs (Sun in Ta and Moon in Sc) means the emphasis is placed on the balance between stagnation and transformation. Too much Taurean stability can turn into a swamp and too much upheaval/change can leave us looking like a strip mine. There needs to be a balance between the divergent drives between ‘change’ and ‘sameness’.

The Taurus/Scorpio dynamic also implies the difference between the earthy epithemia love of Taurus (touch, sex, sensuality) and the intense love of Scorpio (intimate/erotic). Taurus wants sensual pleasure for the joy of it and Scorpio wants to turn that pleasure into purposeful, soul transformation. Taurus wants to recognize herself in the mirror the next day; Scorpio does not.

This Eclipse activation is so strong, we at GoodVibeAstrology.com have decided to explore it deeper, starting with a free call that leads into our short course – Sex Secrets – What Your Astrology Can Tell You. I’ll post more details here before the first call April 30th.

Where we find Scorpio in the horoscope is where we need to experience life in the moment and on the edge.  Saturn transiting there now says ‘get real and serious’ about this area of life. Scorpio asks that we leave our familiar ground, be it supportive or destructive, and venture out into the world to re-create ourselves anew.
