Eclipse season is always the most climactic and life-changing part of the year. Taking place in pairs of two (or more) eclipses, the season of change arrives every six months, paving the way for the universe to make adjustments to your reality. If you’re one of the zodiac signs affected by the solar eclipse in Scorpio the most, then get ready for the ride of your life, because you’ve got a date with destiny.
In astrology, eclipses are far more than a mesmerizing and mysterious celestial phenomenon. In fact, these interruptions to our regularly scheduled programming are always a signal that change is about to occur. A solar eclipse always unfolds in place of a new moon, while a lunar eclipse always occurs instead of a full moon. These glitches in our typical 28-day lunar cycle are a sign that nothing is in our control and all we can do is allow the chips to fall where they may. Plunging you into the deepest shade of your shadow self, an eclipse always forces you to see the truth. And once your eyes adjust to the dark, it all begin to make sense.
An eclipse always takes place in the same zodiac sign as the North Node or the South Node, which unlocks the door to your potential and sets you free from inhibiting attachments. While the South Node symbolizes our past lives and former experiences, the North Node guides us toward the future. And because an eclipse brings you to a crossroads on your karmic path, it speeds you up toward your ultimate destiny, often when you least expect it. While the changes that unfold under an eclipse can be overwhelming, they can feel just as exciting as they do fear-inducing. All you can do is have faith that no matter where you’re headed, it will be beautiful.
Arriving on October 25 at 6:49 a.m. ET, a partial solar eclipse in Scorpio will land at 2 degrees, taking place in the same zodiac sign as the South Node. And because the South Node represents the energy we, as a collective, as learning how to move away from, this eclipse occur in tandem with some form of a goodbye. Whether you’re letting go of a habit, a person, a job or a financial commitment, this solar eclipse is encouraging you to embrace changes that may hurt at first, but will ultimately be a road-opener in your life, creating space for so much growth. Because Scorpio rules over deeply buried truths, this eclipse could lead you to a treasure trove of secrets. It’s time to recognize what you’ve always known to be true (you just didn’t want to believe it). After all, the truth can set you free.
If you don’t notice this shift immediately, give it time to settle into place. The window of change is open for several weeks before and after an eclipse! Stay tuned for several twists and turns.
If your sun sign, moon sign or—most importantly—your rising sign falls under any of the following zodiac signs (especially if it happens to be between 0 and 5 degrees), the upcoming solar eclipse in Scorpio could spark a major transformation in your life. Here’s why:
