Today’s Scorpio New Moon is a total eclipse, amping up the power and volume of the Scorpio energy to sweep away the debris of the old and decaying aspects of our lives. Scorpio is intense and passionate, but also courageous and powerful – let go of any desire for the superficial today.
Scorpio is closely connected with death and the occult, and the idea that the veil between this world and others is thinner than we’d like to think. In this lunation the Sun and Moon are closely aligned with the North Node (future destiny) and opposite the South Node (past karma), giving us an opportunity to propel ourselves forward into a compelling future that is based on the big Truth rather than our ideas that underpin our beliefs about reality. (A lunation is said to be an eclipse when the Sun and Moon are near the lunar nodes, signifying an event that carries importance and a fated quality.)
Saturn trines Pluto at this New Moon, and since Pluto as the modern ruler of Scorpio has a seat of honor at the table of this eclipse and Saturn is in the sign of Scorpio, ruled by Pluto, this is a dynamic alignment which fosters personal growth through focused effort.
The ancient Celts looked at the Scorpio time of year as the darkest time of year (in the Northern hemisphere) before the world began anew at the Winter Solstice. There is a quality of rebirth and regeneration with Scorpio that immediately follows the necessary destruction of the old, and we can be the witnesses of this magical transformation if we only open our eyes.

Lynn, the eclipse is occurring around my South Node, which means it’s also opposite my North Node. Any thoughts about this?
Norma, if the eclipse hits your nodal axis it could bring up something of importance to your life journey.
It’s my understanding that eclipses usually happen when the sun/moon are conjunct the nodal axis so it is super interesting that this eclipse falls on top of your natal nodal axis. The rest would depend on the makeup of your chart :)
I got a job after 4 years with this solar eclipse today..
That is great news Lena!!

I’ve been struggling to know how this eclipse has effected me. Any insight?
I think you probably mean the eclipse fell ON your IC. This the point at the cusp of the fourth house of home and inner life, the psychological inheritance from the family. Planetary events don’t affect everyone in the same way and not everyone will have a definable experience during every eclipse so there’s no way to make a blanket prescription for everyone, but what can you share about your experience during the eclipse? Did something emerge from the subconscious during that time?
Greetings!!!!what does it means if this new moon was square to my mercury and meanwhile mercury is lord of marriage in my birth chart situated in 11thhouse in aquarius.
