When is the October new Moon 2022?

Tuesday 25th October 2022. 

This new Moon is extra special, because it coincides with a partial solar eclipse in the sign of Scorpio. 

What is the effect of the Scorpio new Moon?

A new Moon and a solar eclipse in the sign of Scorpio, will bring about "hidden parts of our being that need to come to the light of consciousness".

It may sound daunting, but it is actually a time to "transform what no longer serves us and activate our inner power, especially in relationships", says Lima de Charbonnierés.

On the 25th of October, and the days surrounding it, "you may feel a certain emotional instability which, though it can be unsettling, is necessary to take you out of your comfort zone, awaken the desire to break free from manipulative relationships and regain your inner power. The moment brings a great opportunity for liberation, transformation and healing." 

Don't feel bad for cancelling any plans or keeping your phone on 'do not disturb', as "it will be natural for you to withdraw for the next three days as this energy affects our daily lives." Lima de Charbonnierés reveals. 

If you are using the time for some well-deserved rest, try journaling your dreams, as they can "reveal memories and information important for this moment of personal transformation."
