The New Moon Solar Eclipse @ 2:43 am occurs in the Moon Mansion of Jysetha and the zodiac sign of Scorpio. Ruling energies are Mars (traditional ruler of Scorpio), Pluto (modern co-ruler with Mars), Ketu, Mercury, and Indra, “The King of the Gods”
The new Lunar cycle begins with a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Jysetha/Scorpio. My father repeatedly tells me of his father's favorite phrase. "Never mind why that's just the way it is." I cringe every time for two reasons. 1) I often find myself speaking in harmony with him when he gets to the phrase, and ultimately I begin to laugh because I have heard him say it a bajillion times. 2) It's not my belief to not ask "why. " My guru also has a similar quote, "struggle comes from not accepting things as they are," I feel an all-important point is missing from both of these quotes. And it is one that I will state like this. Curiosity did not kill the cat. It was transformed one life at a time to become the evolutionary animal that owns wherever they walk, that throws sour glances of disdain at your rules, and yes, they own you and every fleshy part of your body. We are curious creatures who want to know this, that, and everything. We were born to search. Accepting anything as is or anything that someone says without curiosity is complacency that kills the opportunity to evolve. Ketu, Sun, a debilitated Moon, and a combust Mercury are lined up in the most curious and intense sign of the Zodiac, Scorpio, for the New Moon Solar Eclipse. The Moon is debilitated, and actually agitated is a more accurate word. The agitation comes from swimming in the depths of the Scorpio realm. Intense, dark, passionate, secretive with a personal mantra of "death is not the end, but the beginning of transformation" The Moon rules the mind, and for the modern mind that is afraid of death, afraid of intimacy, and afraid of its own shadow, this New Moon could offer an opportunity to be curious or drive some deeper into delusions, distractions, and complacency. This intensity occurs in the third house for our New Moon Solar Eclipse.
