The side effects of the solar eclipse in Scorpio  How to survive one of the most intense events of the period

Most astrology buffs know that every month there is a new moon in the sky, an important event that allows the seeds to be planted on those days for new things to happen. And eclipses? That's a different story. Today we will witness the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, a particularly intense event that will shake up many areas of our lives from that day forward. But it will not be the only decisive event that will occur in the astral picture, in fact, in addition to this Solar Eclipse, the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus will occur on 8 November. These two events are closely connected, let's find out why. 

The Solar Eclipse in Scorpio indicates a new beginning that needs some issues to be concluded in order to be realised. To do things in order, nothing new can begin if a circle is closed first, can it? This Eclipse will manifest itself in an area of our lives where we have sacrificed so much and it is here that there will be this thirst for newness.

As mentioned earlier, the Eclipse in Scorpio is closely related to the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on 8 November, which, on the other hand, will speak of arriving ready for an important and necessary change. During this period, therefore, we must ask ourselves if there are energies, habits, situations or people that we are ready to let go of and from which we can start again to build our future. 

This eclipse invites us to eliminate what no longer serves us by listening to our deepest needs. In fact, the only way to move forward with ease will be to cut off the dead branches that no longer make flowers, ça va sans dire. But that is not all. In fact, this Eclipse will occur on the Southern Lunar Node, which in astrology symbolises the karmic past. We are therefore at an important time to deal with negative emotions from the past, which we have unconsciously repressed such as fear, anger, grief and trauma. For this reason it will not be all roses and flowers, but this event will prepare the ground for experiencing an emotionally complex yet stimulating time, making us ready to move forward and allow new beginnings to present themselves in life.

Thanks to the proximity of Venus still in Scorpio at this time, an important topic to be addressed will be relationships. During this period of transformation, you must therefore ask yourself some fundamental questions: What should you change in your relationship? How do you feel? How do you position yourself towards others? Are you satisfied* with the way you experience love? The energy here is powerful, so the opportunity must be missed to use it to your advantage in order to help yourself provide answers. Trusting your intuition will in fact be the key to managing everything, even your emotions. The quadrature of Mars with Neptune, moreover, highlights another aspect of this Eclipse, namely reflecting on the link between illusion and reality within our relationships. In fact, it can happen that we carry on a relationship living in the illusion of a person, imagining them in our heads as something they are not in reality. A lot of introspection, self-analysis and pure, sincere listening to one's own thoughts and feelings will be needed to understand how to move forward. The confusion will be a lot, but after the storm calms down everything will appear clearer and simpler.
