Eclipsing Out What Doesn’t Belong

If we should experience something being eclipsed out of our lives permanently under this eclipse, it is for our highest good…even if we can’t see it at the moment. Scorpio energy seeks that which is authentic and true, in order to embody this energy and have it within our lives at these new beginnings, it is necessary to suss out what is not working so that when we do take these new starts forward we are doing so from a place of healing, authenticity, and truth.
Honoring The Darkness to Heal

This type of eclipse energy is likely to bring in events such as betrayals, births, deaths, near-death experiences, rock-bottom experiences, high-life experiences, and much more. The commonality of these experiences is that it presents an extreme that makes us stop and think about the circumstances that we are dealing with, and how we’re going to move forward.
It is possible that this eclipse will have the effect reminiscent of pulling a bandage off of a wound. The eclipse is going to shed light on the fact that you can’t heal what is ignored.

So, beware of getting stuck in the dark. Remember, Scorpio is all about evolution.
