Happy new moon and solar eclipse in Scorpio! In traditional Hellenistic astrology, solar eclipses are seen as a time for opportunities, setting foundations, and new beginnings. While there is much talk about eclipses creating chaotic energy, the best way to think of them is as amplifiers— like turbo-charged new and full moons. Because of their cyclical nature and the amplified energy, they are often seen as “portals” or “chapters”— periods in which we experience major beginnings and endings, surprise disruptions, and big changes in our patterns.
This eclipse season is occurring in my 5th and 11th houses, and wow, I am feeling it, haha! And with both the start of Scorpio season and the approach of Halloween/Samhain, the energy is feeling very potent and auspicious.
What are you looking forward to most in the coming season? I, for one, am SO EXCITED for the 3rd Annual Halloween Sale, happening this weekend! There will be some fabulous specials on your favorite HWB goodies and more, plus the return of the sorceress of sugar, Blondie Bakes, and Trick-or-Treating for the littles! Can’t make it in person? Fret not, because there will be online-exclusive specials, and free gifts with every order!
