The Deep End: New Moon Eclipse in Scorpio

A couple of days after November 1st's wallop of influences, there will be a New Moon Solar eclipse at 11 degrees Scorpio (on November 3rd).

New Moon eclipses are super-powered fresh starts. This one falls so close to the November 1st Yod and Uranus/Pluto square, you just know they'll be linked. What is revealed on November 1st will lead to the new beginning on November 3rd. 

Also on November 3rd, Mercury retrograde will conjunct the North Node (at 7 degrees Scorpio). This new chapter will involve going backwards; Mercury retrograde in Scorpio digs deep/digs up the past, and what's revealed will push you forward (North Node). The transiting North Node represents what you can strive for...evolve towards...and it's probably just outside your comfort zone.

And more. Mars in Virgo will empower this eclipse with a sextile (to the Sun/Moon conjunction in Scorpio) so you'll be able to support this new chapter with actions/initiative. You won't have to do anything crazy or reach for the stars. Virgo is daily work that you probably take for granted. All you have to do is pay attention to what's right under your nose. Work the small stuff, organize, clean up your health/exercise routine/paperwork. It's not exciting, but that's what makes this eclipse approachable. You've got all the tools you need to handle it.

To summarize:

  • The area of your chart with the sign Scorpio is where the new chapter will commence
  • It will be directly related to research/investigation/calling up the past, even as the information you receive propels you forward
  • Thea area of your chart with the sign Virgo is where your tools are (to work with this eclipse)

And remember, this is Scorpio. Scorpio demands total commitment. Whatever starts will call on all your resources, and you might feel like you're being tossed into the deep end. There will be no comfy transition period, but that's ok. You've got Mars in helpful Virgo backing you up.

You've got this one.

If you have planets/angles from 7-11 degrees Scorpio, or 10-11 degrees Virgo, you'll feel this eclipse strongly.
