November 3, 2013 11° Scorpio 16’ 7:50am
An eclipse occurs when the orbits of the Moon and the Earth align closely enough together with the Sun and the Moon to block the light of the Sun from the Earth (a Solar Eclipse), or the Moon (a Lunar Eclipse). Every month we have a New Moon, but only every six months do we have eclipses. A Solar Eclipse is when the Moon is exactly between the Sun and the Earth and blocks the light of the Sun from the Earth. A portion or the complete disc of the Sun (as viewed from the Earth) is temporarily blotted out. It is as if some dark body were passing across the face of the Sun and temporarily blocking out the flow of the Sun’s energy to Earth. Solar Eclipses are very powerful New Moons and are known to herald significant endings and beginnings. A metamorphosis is beginning to take hold, and if you are in direct alignment with this eclipse your life will change forever in magnificent ways – whether you like it or not! Public standing may soar or crash due to the effects of an eclipse!
Events that are triggered by an eclipse usually take six months to unfold, so you can expect this process of change to continue as you begin to feel like a flower opening its’ petals. Special opportunities to break old patterns become apparent as you begin to make major changes in your life. The Solar Eclipse on November 3, 2013 will occur at 7:50am at 11°16 Scorpio. All Scorpio Sun Sign people will be most affected by this Solar Eclipse as will those with Scorpio rising. If you are a Taurus or have Taurus rising you will feel this eclipse more strongly than most because in our sky the constellation of Taurus is opposite the constellation of Scorpio and is in direct alignment with this eclipse. Overall, you will find yourself redoing your life from your toes to the top of your head and your appearance will be changed radically as you enhance your image to reflect the massive changes going on within you!! Remember, Eclipses are about endings . . and beginnings!! Ultimately the changes in how you see yourself will affect how you are perceived by others thereby affecting all of your personal AND business relationships!! This is all good as you review your life, let go of past aspirations, recommit to what works and plant seeds in a new garden of personal goals!!
Life tends to speed up near eclipses and awareness increases. Depending on the part of your chart that is activated we can determine exactly what part of your life will be most affected. If you are a Scorpio almost every part of your life will be affected, but all of us will feel a shift of some sort coming on. If the eclipse falls in your first/seventh houses, you are working on yourself, on your marriage or your relationship. If it is the second/eighth houses, it is your earnings or joint finances that are affected. If it is the 3rd/9th houses, it could be a year of travel or educational pursuits. For more information on how this eclipse falls in your personal chart, give me a call. With any eclipse, what is hidden will come to light and your secret desires may not be secret anymore. You may break away from a relationship that no longer suits your needs, or you may be faced with changes beyond your control. The six after an eclipse will give you the time to sort through your feelings and explore other options. Events occurring near an eclipse take on the added attribute of being unpredictable or fated! Affairs begin and end abruptly around eclipses.
Remember: change is good! Change in thought, manner, speech, dress, lifestyle, career, health, family, expectations and goals are all part of the plan and the process of you creating a more fulfilled life. An eclipse is like a red light as it indicates that there are things that one doesn’t know about that throws your life out of focus. You may feel uncomfortable as you let go of what is familiar and you step way outside your boundaries to make room in your head and your heart for new ideas and ultimately a new lifestyle!
Read on to see how this eclipse will affect you personally!!

Geminis: Fresh challenges in your place of employment are the result of this eclipse. Awakening volcanic emotions rock your world. Pay close attention to your emotions, but think carefully before you act on them. Happily, your ability to handle the unexpected is enhanced.
