Astrologers say to prepare for a great release and awakening in power as this week’s solar eclipse and New Moon in Scorpio makes its powerful effect on the encounters of personal lives. The partial solar eclipse, occurring Oct. 23, 2014, is said to be the beginning of great relief to many signs and when the eclipse hits its peak, 48% sun visibility will be present.
When a solar eclipse is occurring, the moon is casting a shadow over the Earth which is said to symbolize a meaning of overshadowing the past to produce a new transformational growth. Some say that the astrological significance of this occurrence is even more powerful than that of the lunar eclipse which occurred recently and that it will energize the life of ambitious seeds which have been planted, cultivate the progress of projects that are initiated, and help people see one another in a more powerful way. It is also thought that the intentions one sets during this period will take on a whole new level of meaning and the results can be seen in a person’s experiences for the next six months.
This being the final eclipse of the year, astrologers feel that as people transition through this fall season, they will begin to have a greater understanding of the struggles they have recently experienced. Astrologer, Leslie Hale, says that the eclipse will highlight transformative rebirths and have an effect on situations involving investments and the financial status occurring within relationships. For those who choose to read their birth sign chart, the individuals can more clearly see the powerful effect and specific impact the solar eclipse in Scorpio has upon their sign and potentially obtain a better understanding of the complexities of their lives.
Though the road has been more than a little difficult, those who hung in there and stayed true to themselves will all be able to one day look back upon all the trials and seeming tests that occurred and feel a great sense of pride for having been able to withstand all that they have experienced lately. This rare eclipse signifies the lighting up of the soul and, as a soul lights, it becomes all of that which it really is, enabling it to cut through fears and doubts which may have previously held back the individual’s progress.
This week’s partial solar eclipse in Scorpio will have a powerful effect on lives and it will highlight new beginnings in the areas of power, money, intimacy, sharing, and control on a more personal level. It will serve to push people to take a closer look at, and evaluate the value of, those around them and begin to appreciate that value without requiring others have the exact same perspective they hold. In other words,the energy of the solar eclipse will encourage people who are willing to finally accept the painful thoughts and barriers holding them back as being just that, thoughts. They will be able to begin shedding those negative images and simultaneously open up to seeing the varying talent which exists within those around them so that they may begin to benefit from those talents and start to finally experience the life they have been working for.
