The New Moon eclipse in Scorpio (on November 3rd) gives new beginnings an intense, all encompassing feel. Scorpio demands deep commitment, total honesty and unflinching acceptance of the whole package (positive and negative). Its close proximity to Saturn (rules and authority) ensures that you'll stay focused on the only objective that matters. Mercury retrograde will conjunct the North Node (path forward) in Scorpio a few hours before this eclipse, suggesting that a deeper understanding of the facts will be part of what carries you onwards. What you begin will gain powerful momentum, so make sure you're completely on board. On November 5th, Venus (love, money, values) moves into Capricorn, the sign of rules, limits and realities. Venus themes will be clearly drawn; you just have to work within the boundaries you're given. This will be a long transit (due to Venus' retrograde) that will stretch out to March 5th, 2014, so there will be plenty of time to accept the realities of a situation or cement a new potential.
The eclipse in your sector of shared resources indicates a new start involving debts, taxes, loans, inheritances or your partner's finances. This could mean new debts, or a new beginning after finally paying off what is owed (Mercury retrograde suggests revisiting a particular debt, first). Alternatively, physical and emotional intimacy could enter a satisfying new chapter. Saturn's influence can put the emphasis on your responsibilities (financial or emotional) to another. Venus' move into your career sector kicks off a substantial period of favourable attention from higher ups (or the public) and strategic, career enhancing relationships. Over the next few months you can make significant advances as long as you play it cool and play by the rules.
The eclipse in your partnership sector suggests a deeper commitment or bold new chapter after a recent ending. Whether you're taking a relationship to the next level or striking out on your own, total honesty/intimacy is the way to go; you have no choice but to move forward, so you might as well go all in. If you're single, you could meet someone who pushes you further (emotionally and physically) than you've gone before. Mercury retrograde brings a fated, "we've met before" feeling to this one. Venus (your ruler) enters your sector of opportunities, suggesting that these new relationship developments could involve long distance travel, exploration, education or legal matters. New relationships may involve someone totally different (or from a foreign culture). In general, positive financial and emotional opportunities lie outside your comfort zone. You'll need to stretch just a little bit to make it happen.
The eclipse triggers new beginnings in your sector of daily routines. Issues around work duties, co-worker relationships, obligations, diet or exercise may unfold into something that demands your complete attention. This is also an excellent time to start a new health regime, as changes begun now should stick. Your path to success will involve confronting self-destructive habits, fears, fixations and asking the uncomfortable questions. Saturn's influence can throw a significant amount of work/responsibility on your plate from the get-go. Venus enters your sector of shared resources, indicating that financial help or gifts (in the areas of debts, taxes, loans, inheritances or your partner's finances) could be coming your way. Physical and emotional intimacy can also see a boost, with focused exploration of mutual boundaries.
The eclipse gifts you with a new romance, surge of creativity, opportunity to express yourself, or a pregnancy/birth. New beginnings will be deeply desired and highly emotional; this could be your launch pad into a juicy new chapter, and Saturn plus Mercury retrograde insist that you take it seriously. You'll need focus and (possibly) research to help this potential flourish. Venus' move into your relationship sector keeps the momentum going with romantic harmony, commitment and dependability. A new or existing partnership won't be too crazy; it will follow the rules. Know that these can be your rules, if you're clear on exactly what you want. Your partner's respect for you will be rooted in your self-respect and authority.
The eclipse triggers a new chapter in your increased domestic responsibilities; a relocation, new addition to the family, renovations, pivotal discussion with a partner or launch of a home business. This influence can also be an excellent time to break away from decades old habits or associations that have been dragging you down. Venus in your sector of daily routines can bring harmony to co-worker relationships, graceful solutions to nagging problems, appreciation/rewards from others for work you've performed, and a general easing of worries and pressures. It won't suddenly be rainbows, but there will be moments of grace amongst the details. Although you may not feel as disciplined over the next few months, this is a time when you can get the most benefit from an enhanced diet or exercise routine.
The eclipse in your communication sector points to an illuminating discussion/decision, writing/research opportunity, launch of a blog or business. Statements made during this eclipse will have a deep and lasting impact (and will be binding as well). Use this energy to put your intentions into writing, for maximum effect. Saturn's influence ties this energy into the respect that others have for your words. Venus in your sector of self-expression can boost your success, self-worth, attention and romantic impact. The next few months will be a time to take your pleasures seriously; focus on what you really want and what makes you happy, then approach with determination.
The eclipse in your sector of personal resources can signal a chance for additional income or opportunity to get more out of what you have (if you look deeper, or take another look at a discarded option). Emotionally and financially, this new chapter will about you taking a no-holds-barred approach to what you need, along with Saturn's agenda of self-sufficiency. If you're moving into an era where you know there's more waiting, that's great; make the most of it. If you're not sure what's ahead, know that your attitude of long-haul dedication to your needs (and patience) will get you where you want to go. Venus (your ruler) in your domestic sector continues the theme of personal attention. You may focus on family, intimate moments with a partner, or retreat to make your home a place of beauty and stability.
The eclipse in your sign opens yet another door. Saturn (and Mercury retrograde) in your sign have been refocusing you on the essentials (while honing your determination), and this eclipse will take the leaner, meaner you onto the next stage. The North Node's involvement insists that this can be an evolutionary leap; if you feel like you're being pushed out of your comfort zone, you're on the right track. Changes could range from a relationship ending/beginning, to a job change, relocation or new life path. The influences of the past week will give you a clue as to what's going to unfold. Venus in your communication sector can bring seductive messages, or can enhance your powers of communication with increased, strategic charm. The next few months will be prime for getting your point across, networking or generally making an excellent impression on others.
The eclipse in your hidden sector can accelerate a secret or overlooked possibility, bringing out what you've been holding back (or were not fully aware of). You may choose to finally open up, or the issue may be aired for you. Either way, it's time to look at this in the clear light of day. It will be related to that portion of your life that Saturn has been urging you to leave behind. Venus in sector of personal resources can help you attract and cement what you need, financially or emotionally. The key will be focus, a willingness to only accept what will move you forward, and a clear understanding of what you're worth. The theme of this long, Venus transit will be taking responsibility for your personal security.
The eclipse in your social sector can start a demanding new chapter involving friends or group associations. Whether you're moving forward by leaving a relationship behind, or are confronted with the necessity to look beyond the surface of a friendship, this energy will not allow you to take your social connections lightly. Saturn (your ruler) suggests that your respect in the community will be an issue, while Mercury retrograde could bring a sense of déjà vu. Fortunately, you have Venus in your sign for the next few months. You can manifest positive relationships, increased resources, confidence and public appeal. Use Venus' extended stay to slowly but surely solidify the things you want; personal authority will be the tool you'll use.
The eclipse in your career sector can signal a job opening, change in future goals, increased ambition or encouragement to drive you towards that Big Dream. This energy is an accelerant, and Saturn's influence ties it to your career high point/reward or leadership agenda. Mercury retrograde suggests this opportunity could involve a previous job discussion, or the results of your research. Use it to jump forward. Venus in your hidden sector can stir up a secret relationship, desire or ambition that you're not ready to reveal. Venus' transit will be a time of ripening; it's too soon to draw any conclusions about where this is going just yet.
The eclipse in your opportunities sector can start a new chapter involving long distance travel, education, legal matters or publishing. What's new can be intense and overwhelmingly different. Not only will you be asked to commit fully, but you'll be doing it with something that's bigger (and more serious) than you expected. Dive in, and you'll find that you acclimatize more quickly than you imagined. Saturn will narrow your options, so all you have to do is concentrate on your objective. Venus in your social sector can boost all your social connections (friends, groups, acquaintances, the general public). This is an excellent influence for networking, as long as you play by certain social rules and realities.
