The eclipse portal comes to a close early Thursday morning with the New Moon in Mrigashira nakshatra (Sidereal Taurus), the Searching Star. Consider your current dance with uncertainty as an initiation preparing you for what comes next.

The Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio brought hidden truths to the surface that were ripe for healing. We’ve been visiting old ground and circling around with familiar lessons and experiences that have encouraged us to pivot inwards and sit with all that is moving through us. We’ve been in a time outside of time. What you think you knew may have been challenged in the past weeks. You may be doubting your direction at the moment and feeling as if you’re picking up the pieces. Just because things may not be working out in the way in which you thought they would, doesn’t necessarily mean you need to change what you’re devoted to.

Solar eclipses are an indicator of sorts, an omen of energies to come and are an important time to see into yourself. Track what has been trying to make itself known to you in the past few weeks. Are you listening? The energies of the eclipse are inviting you to take a deeper look below the surface, to refine and experiment with your current process.

Stand back and take a broader perspective. New ideas may be surfacing. What do you really want to commit to long term? Know that the challenges that are arising now have a purpose and perhaps embracing your vulnerability is the greatest medicine and ally at this time. You can only change yourself and as you do, so does the world around you. Stay focused, take your time to process things and allow the story to continue to unfold. Wait another week after the eclipse to initiate new beginnings.

Emotions may be heightened around the eclipse window and spiritual growth is accelerated. Stay grounded, keep your mind focused inward and surround yourself with positivity. Mrigashira is about nourishment, desire, pursuit, tracking, and seeking out where one belongs. There is an inner searching that is taking place now — a seeking of something higher that we can lean into, that has been missing in the previous months. You’re being invited to surrender to the process now.
