Will you make a fresh start? Why the solar eclipse in Scorpio can help

This evening there will be a total solar eclipse in the sign of Scorpio. But as it's happening at night, it wont be seen as much as felt, according to astrologers (in the UK, at least, where it will occur at around 10pm).
Eclipses are always linked to things being hidden, and shrouded from public view. This seems to be the theme at present anyway, as I was reading astrologer Joanna Watters' account on her blog about invisibility cloaks being in the news on the BBC - a typical scopionic theme of hiding, and secrets within. Check out her blog here

Here is what else I read about it on www.cafeastrology.com:

"In the sign of Scorpio, matters related to intimacy, control, power, money, and sharing will be a strong focus on a personal level. This eclipse is about new beginnings regarding all of these matters.
Occurring in Scorpio, this eclipse is about strengthening ourselves from the inside out. We can feel extremes of emotion as our fears of loss, betrayal, or the exposure of our vulnerabilities are uncovered. This eclipse will illuminate our emotional and financial investments, and possibly challenge them. We might take steps towards self-mastery and self-empowerment by tackling things that undermine us and that take away our power, such as compulsive behaviours, addictions, or substantial debts. We might work on learning about intimacy, not only with others but also with ourselves. An intimate partnership may be left behind, or a source of money might end, and either of these situations pushes us to learn to depend on ourselves and to recognise that we don't necessarily need these things to survive. Ultimately, we are now in a position to understand that changes or endings are necessary for our own growth, and that we can handle these things."

This feels relevant to me - and I'm a Scorpio too, so this eclipse is meant to affect me more than others - as I'm supposedly about to buy a property (I say supposedly as it's been dragging on ages and you never can tell with these things, and part of me wonders whether it will happpen, and whether I'm buying the right place after all). I do resonate with the last line too, about endings being necessary for our own growth, and letting go of the past so we can create our future. I've gotten the death card twice now in two recent Psy-Cards readings, which always indicates endings. And with regards to money, I think back to my new year's resolutions of focusing on 'financial freedom, flexibility and fun'. Well, I had a whole load of fun for the first half of this year with my dancing, and now it's the turn of the former two, hence the stretching to get more flexible, and thinking up new ways to generate income. 

The blog goes on to talk about how this eclipse at the time of the Scorpio new moon can trigger impulsive thoughts, which I can attest to, having had many a moment of wanting to completely change direction in my life when I've been upset about something of late. And it's also a good time for self-mastery, and "pinpointing the things in our lives that make us feel out of control, such as addictions and debts, and work on freeing ourselves of these emotional burdens". 

Surrending to the unknown
I also noted this part with interest: "We may be called to give up something in order to move forward into a new chapter in our lives. Although the "new" may be unrecognisable, it is important to allow the necessary surrender to the unknown." could this be to do with relationships, me thinks?  Especially as it goes on to say: "Major developments in the personal areas ruled by Scorpio in our charts are likely to occur over the course of the next 3-6 months. This is the first eclipse in a series falling along the Taurus-Scorpio axis."
Well, considering there are two exes, no, three, with either Taurus suns or moons in their charts, two of which have popped up again in my life recently, is this to challenge me to move on fully? Perhaps. Or maybe it means something else. Either way, this eclipse and the fact it's a new moon is signifying a time of change that is much needed, and a setting of boundaries in my personal life that were never in place before now, hence why I've often ended up in so much emotional turmoil. 

So, new starts all round the for us Scorpios! We're the sign of tenacity and perseverance too, so it says, so perhaps the astrological goings on at the moment can assist with our progress too.
