The Scorpio New Moon Solar Eclipse peaks on October 25, 2022, welcoming us deep into Eclipse Season. While the energies of Eclipse Season can often be highly transformative, there is a gentle rhythm to this Eclipse.
Venus, the planet of love, beauty, relationships, and money is highly active at this time, helping to open, awaken, and expand our heart center. With our heart center expanded and open, we may find a focus on our relationships. We may also feel more inspired, more open to receiving abundance, and more inclined to find the beauty in things.
Solar Eclipses can activate our soul contract and karmic gifts and lessons. For this reason, we don’t really need to use their energy for setting intentions like we would on a typical New Moon. Instead, it is far more powerful to focus on bringing ourselves into a state of alignment. When we align with our highest self, we can receive our karmic gifts and lessons with greater ease.
This ritual will help you to do just that. It is gentle and focused on self-love, which is one of the fastest ways to bring your being into a state of alignment.

Scorpio New Moon Solar Eclipse Ritual October 2022
This ritual can be done a month on either side of this Eclipse but is best done between October 18-November 7, 2022.
You will need:
Aura and space Cleansing tool of choice
Lotus Compassion Meditation
Journal and Pen
Herbal tea of your choice
1.) Light your candle. Start by cleansing your aura using your chosen cleansing tool of choice. As you cleanse your aura, recite the following-
“I am cleansing myself light and free. I am cleansing myself so I can be me. I am cleansing away the struggles of my past, I am cleansing and opening my heart. My heart is now open and I am aligned. My heart is now open, and I am aligned.”
2.) With your freshly cleansed aura, turn your attention to your space and ritual ingredients and give them a cleansing too. As you cleanse your space, you can recite the following if you wish –
“I cleanse the space around me, I cleanse and bless this room. The energy of this space is healed, the energy of this space is true. Only light and love fill this home. Only light and love dwell here. All that is dense, heavy, and untrue is now gone. I am renewed. This space is renewed. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
3.) Get nice and comfortable, and do your Lotus Compassion Meditation. Try to have your candle and the herbs for your tea nearby if possible.
4.) After the meditation is complete, get your pen and paper and choose one of the prompts below. Aim to write for at least 20 minutes using the prompt as your guide. Just write whatever comes to your mind, even if it doesn’t directly address the prompt. You can think of the prompt as inspiration, rather than something that has to be answered.
Ways I can show up in greater love for myself…
I am grateful for…
If nothing was impossible, I would…
How do you long to be loved?
What has love taught me?
I feel most loved when…
5.) After your journal session has finished, sit with any thoughts or realizations that may have come up for you.
6.) As you ponder, brew your cup of herbal tea. Holding the tea in both hands, recite the following affirmation-
“On each sip, I free myself of any burdens, blocks, or wounds that are holding me back and preventing me from accessing the love that I am and the love that is all around me. On each sip, I receive healing and nourishment. On each sip, my heart opens to the Universe, ready and open to receive the many blessings that are already mine. On each sip, I ask for (enter whatever you like here). I ask to be protected and find my ease as I journey through Eclipse Season/ Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
After reciting the affirmation, drink your tea. After you are done with your tea, your ritual is complete. You may snuff out your candle too.
New Moon Solar Eclipse Blessings to You!
