We’re seeing an increase in the darker energies which include manipulation and control of innocent people.

How to Make the Most of this Scorpio Solar Eclipse
What do you need to surrender to?
What is it in your life that you are not really happy with but that you are resisting?
Wherever this New Moon Solar Eclipse falls in your birth-chart
will show in which area of life you need to surrender and let go.
As the saying by C.G. Jung goes: "what you resist, persists."
Wherever you are experiencing unhappiness in your life, there is something you are resisting. We suffer when we want things to be different from how they actually are yet either cannot or will not do something about it. For example, when someone is playing loud music and it is disturbing you, there are many ways in which you can respond:
You can go outside and shout at them and demand that they turn the music down which they may or may not do.
You can grin and bear it and clench your teeth and moan and complain.
You can focus on something else entirely and soon you won’t even notice the music.
The key is wholly in the way we respond to the things we don’t like. How you interpret the experience will determine how you feel.
We are conditioned from an early age to label our experiences as either good or bad. For example, if you are feeling depressed then your mind may tell you that this is a bad feeling. You might intensify it by saying to yourself: ‘what’s wrong with me, why am I feeling like this, how can I get it to go away…’
Often feelings of sadness have nothing at all to do with anything. You might be picking up on someone else’s energy, or even a global vibration of pain that’s affecting you. The same goes for the weather, your living situation, your finances
, your family… The outer circumstances are never going to be ideal – at least not for long. If you can learn to stop resisting, you will find inner peace. This is what is being called for during this powerful solar eclipse in Scorpio
There is always something we can let go of. It could be something someone else did to you, something you did, an old sadness, hurt, disappointment or resentment. You might be playing it repeatedly over and over in your mind and it’s making you feel even worse. When you have truly done everything proactively that you possibly can to change a situation and when there is really nothing more you can do, that’s the time you need to let go. Holding on can wreak all kinds of havoc within your physical body that can later turn into health ailments.
It’s exactly as the American theologian Reinhold Neibuhr said in his well-known Serenity Prayer:
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
When you let go, you free yourself and that’s empowering. It takes practice, but when you do it, you feel as though a burden has been removed from your shoulders.
You could write the situation out with all your emotions and then burn it or destroy it.

, this is a great time to delve more deeply into the areas in your life that need more clarity.
It could ignite your fears too. Don’t run from them, or they will intensify! Keep in mind that you are stronger than any problem or obstacle that arises.

is the most formidable sign of the zodiac. Use the power that the heavens are giving you to take the driver’s seat of your life and to transform the areas that are no longer working for you. Scorpio’s ruler, Pluto, needs to be in control. It’s determined and has laser-beam focus. You can use this energy to destroy anything that isn’t in your highest good and to allow something new and more life-enhancing to grow in its place. Remember, nature abhors a vacuum, so when you let go of one thing you allow something else that’s more uplifting and life-enhancing to come in.
As Alexander Graham Bell said:
When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.
Don’t be afraid to let go. It might be the best thing you ever did.
