The Moon is New in Scorpio on October 25, 2022, at 6:49 AM EDT. This New Moon is a partial Solar Eclipse.

New Moon/Solar Eclipse (Partial) in Scorpio on October 25, 2022

This phase of the Moon occurs at 2 degrees and 0 minutes of Scorpio. It is tightly conjunct Venus.

The conjunction to Venus emphasizes and reinforces a challenge to our value system. We could find that people are more cooperative in our quest, and close personal relationships are deeply involved. There can be situations in which we feel pressured to bring more harmony to our relationships.

It’s interesting to note that a partial Solar Eclipse occurred in early Scorpio, aligned with Venus, on October 25, 2014.

In the sign of Scorpio, matters related to intimacy, control, power, money, and sharing will be a strong focus in the weeks and even months after this Solar Eclipse. This eclipse is about new beginnings regarding any of these matters. It’s about strengthening ourselves from the inside out. We can feel extremes of emotion as our fears of loss, betrayal, or the exposure of our vulnerabilities are uncovered.

This eclipse can illuminate our emotional and financial investments, and possibly challenge them. We might take steps towards self-mastery and self-empowerment by tackling things that undermine us and that take away our power, such as compulsive behaviors, addictions, or substantial debts. We might work on intimacy, not only with others but also with ourselves.

Circumstances may be such that we are nudged or encouraged to see others’ values and to consider them rather than expect that they share the same perspective as us. Or, we now must take steps towards managing and handling our shared resources, our debts, or taxes more effectively. An intimate partnership may be left behind, or a source of money might end, and either of these situations pushes us to learn to depend on ourselves and to recognize that we don’t necessarily need these things to survive. On the other hand, if we’ve been keeping things to ourselves, now is the time to reach out and get the support we need. Ultimately, we are now in a position to understand that changes or endings are necessary for our own growth, and that we can handle these things.

This is a good time for focusing on some of the constructive traits of the sign of the Scorpion–passionate, resourceful, focused, probing, deep, and perceptive–and consider how to positively incorporate these qualities into our lives. Scorpio New Moons are generally good for working on our self-mastery skills. We may want to pinpoint the things in our lives that make us feel out of control, such as addictions and debts, and work on freeing ourselves of these emotional burdens. We can explore what is missing in our lives that leads us to engage in self-destructive behaviors.

With this eclipse, we might experience a strong urge to act on impulse. However, it will be important to avoid jumping to conclusions and asserting ourselves without considering others’ feelings and reactions. There is a big difference between asserting ourselves from a place of healthy confidence, and asserting ourselves brashly and blindly, which can give us a false sense of confidence or bravery.

With this potent Scorpio energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives that will benefit us well beyond this Moon cycle. For some of us, circumstances are such that we need to pay more attention to these matters.

Flaws in an important system in our lives reveal themselves around the time of the eclipse, prompting us to redo or to start fresh. Something ends in order for something else to start anew. We may be called to give up something in order to move forward into a new chapter in our lives. Although the “new” may be unrecognizable, it is important to allow the necessary surrender to the unknown.

An eclipse occurs close to the nodal axis, and this eclipse is closer to the South Node of the Moon. We should watch for clinging to things that act as crutches in our lives.

Major developments in the personal areas ruled by Scorpio in our charts are likely to occur over the course of the next 3-6 months. This is one of several eclipses in a series falling along the Taurus-Scorpio axis.

Solar eclipses occurred at approximately the same degree as this October 2022 eclipse on October 25, 2014, and October 24, 1995. It might help to think back to these periods and consider the themes in our lives then in order to get a better understanding of what the current eclipse series might mean for us. The last times we had sets of Taurus-Scorpio eclipses were 2012-2014 and 2002-2003.
