This second and final Solar Eclipse for 2013 is rather
special as I noted in my overview for 2013:
Solar Eclipse in Scorpio (November 3)
The second of two Solar Eclipses this year, and it is putting on a rather unusual show...in fact it is for this reason named a "Hybrid Eclipse". What is that? It is sort of a total and partial eclipse combined. Here is the scientific analysis. Here is an animation of the eclipse moving across the Earth. It will be at least partially visible in eastern North America and northern South America, and crosses over to western and central Africa by the end.
The Eclipse in Scorpio will more starkly reveal an awesome challenge and opportunity that is to be found in this seeding of meaning. There is no greater struggle and no higher reward than what you will find here...But first you must confront your greatest fears that now will stand revealed to you. For it is always in these darkest hours that you will find your answers...and you will see that from the shadows a presence veiled reveals its wondrous Light.
Every New Moon is special for it brings the promise of renewal, another gift of Spiritual Inspiration to help guide you upon your path of Self-Awakening...But two times per year (usually) you will get an even more special Gift of the Spirit when the Sun, Moon and Earth align perfectly to form a Solar Eclipse. You will witness a play of Light and Shadows that beautifully Illuminates how you and these Worlds with whom you travel are spiraling through these magisterial Spaces of Space in a most wondrous and magical Dance of the Planets.
Every year, the New Moon of Scorpio releases a most special Seed of Meaning, to guide you in a most important task, which is to become freed from the shadows cast by your lower bodies or vehicles, these Illusions of Matter. For you will eventually move beyond these Shadows, beyond the crossing point and into the Light, as you Awaken to the Heart and Truth of the One Reality, of the Underlying/Overarching and Infinitesimal/Infinite Reality in which you truly abide...Spirit.
You are a Spark of the Divine, you are Spirit who is now "caught" in your necessary, but separate from one another, vehicles of matter...and yet you will hear those intuitive whispers, you will feel the essential nature of what you truly are, as you constantly strive in all these worlds and forms through which you journey, as you ceaselessly, longingly and lovingly seek to reach across that apparent divide and "touch" one another, to join with one another, to become one with one another again.
So it is at the New Moon in Scorpio that you are given a renewal of this Knowing, a reminder that the Illusion is Separation, and the Enduring Truth is that you are part of one another, for you are made by and through one another. This being so, your guiding principle should always be with whomever is before you now, that as you look into their eyes and see there behind and beyond the present form, what you lovingly know and recognize is there you are too...for "I am That, I am".
You will one day achieve this knowing-loving way of being, but you are held back for now by the Shadows of your Past, you are not what you could be because of your fears...And here is where the Eclipse in Scorpio provides an even more potent gift for you.
Each New Moon brings a renewal of Spiritual Meaning from the Sun passed down to you through the Moon. The Moon is your Mediatrix, the Keeper and Bearer of your past, and so she helps to form the forms of your present reality. The Moon modulates and passes onto you these Solar Rays so that they may become integrated into your life here on Earth.
But this also means that mixed into the Gifts from the Sun will be the Karmic Shadows of your past: your doubts, your anxieties and your fears. So the promised re-birth of the New Moon will be circumscribed, necessarily, by how far you have come upon the path of Karma. Here is where the Eclipse provides another Gift of Spirit.
Because the Solar Ray is so perfectly aligned with the Moon and then to Earth, it creates a sharper Illumination and Burning through of those Self-Cast, Karmic Shadows. What might have been missed, or misunderstood, is seen in a clearer light and you are able to step across that Divide, to stand between the Darkness and the Light and experience the greater Truth that is there.
You can see more clearly how some patterns you have held to also have their hold on you, they are very dear and familiar for you, yet they will often propel you into reactive-actions that were not self-affirming but truly self-destructive. That is because they were formed in and based upon fear and not love. The Eclipse will illuminate these Shadows, they will be thrown into stark relief and become activated. But you will have the new-found wherewithal to see them for what they are, and you will be given a chance to choose...
You will face your Fears, which in Scorpio is the Fear of Rejection, the Fear of Loss. And you must choose to not reject yourself by acting in fear, but instead by showing your Truth in Faith and your Strength in Love.
You have Faith, for you know what and who you are, you know from where you came and that your destiny is to be Fearless.
You have Love, for you know that at the core of you and the one before you resides the same Spiritual Spark, and that as in your Origin you are to live and love as One.
By this Faith and in this Love you will offer to the Beloved a Shared Sacred Space...
You will take your chance, you will face down you fears...
And so by choosing wisely, in Faith and Love,
Then maybe, just maybe, they will smile and join you there.
