Solar Eclipse October 2022 Astrology
The New Moon Solar Eclipse on October 25, 2022, is located at 02°00′ Scorpio. The most powerful influence on the Solar Eclipse comes from the conjunction of Venus. A more challenging but weaker influence comes from Jupiter. The green quincunx aspects may disturb the peace and harmony of the favorable alignment of the Sun, Moon and Venus.
Solar Eclipse Meaning
A solar eclipse is like a regular new moon where the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. However, a solar eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun. The most powerful and important aspect of astrology is Sun conjunct Moon. It represents cyclic renewal and gives a refreshing burst of energy and initiative.
But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating. It means all possibilities are on the table, and you can rightly put yourself at the forefront of new plans for the future.
While a New Moon lasts for four weeks, the effects of a solar eclipse last nearly six months. So Solar Eclipse October 2022 is excellent for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.
Solar Eclipse October 2022 Venus
New Moon conjunct Venus focuses your attention on companionship, pleasure, creativity and finances. You place more value on harmony and ease. Lovely people, comfortable environments and sound finances will improve your self-worth and self-esteem. So this solar eclipse is ideal for pampering yourself with a new hairstyle, clothes, cosmetics, or anything to make you look and feel more beautiful.
Love relationships become more important; you should feel more affectionate and appear more sexually attractive and charismatic. Finding unconditional love with a soul mate is more likely now. This sociable and fun alignment is good for seeking pleasure through sex, amusement, entertainment and partying.
The Solar Eclipse October 2022 conjunct Venus is also favorable for relaxing in comfort or having fun with children, pets, and hobbies. You should feel more enthusiastic about artistic and creative pursuits like decorating, music, singing, dance, art or poetry. A desire for more money could lead to business, art, jewelry, or cash investments.
Your desire for peace and harmony means you should have good diplomatic skills. You can easily make friends and win over enemies. But a more sympathetic and compassionate nature risks compromising too much to keep the peace. Sugarcoating unpleasant realities, overindulgence, extravagance, or laziness are also possible, especially with the October 25 Solar Eclipse and Venus quincunx Jupiter.
New Moon October 2022 Jupiter
New Moon quincunx Jupiter gives a yearning to you to reach your goals concerning wealth, prosperity and happiness. If you are on the right path for your soul, a mix of striving and good luck will bring riches and success. But any imbalance between what you want and what you need to make you happy will become more evident and problematic.
Dissatisfaction, disappointment, insecurity or uncertainty would indicate a reassessment of your goals is needed. If you continue on the wrong path, a crisis of identity or self-esteem will force you to look deeper inside for answers. The New Moon October 2022 quincunx Jupiter may help you realize that there is more to life than professional or material success.
A more philosophical and spiritual approach will re-balance your life. Working on self-improvement will help you find personal satisfaction and happiness. It will also help you conquer guilt, shame or low self-esteem and lead to more enduring personal relationships.
Venus quincunx Jupiter brings the potential for relationship tension or financial stress. Any imbalance between the love you give and receive will need correcting. If you have done too much for someone, they may take advantage of you and make you feel used and abused. If you have taken someone for granted, they may withdraw their affection until you realize how much you need and love them.
You may experience embarrassment, shame or financial hardship if you have been overindulging recently. However, you may also receive a gift, money, an offer, or some other good fortune as a karmic reward for earlier good deeds.
Extra charm, diplomacy, and tact will help relieve any relationship tension. You can also use your enhanced sense of humor to entertain your friends or break the ice. However, a tendency to push the limits could result in someone taking offense. People will be more sensitive about religious, moral and sexual topics. Use moderation and humility to avoid controversy, scandal or legal problems.
The New Moon Solar Eclipse of October 2022 is in the Sign of Scorpio. But as the star map below shows, it is actually in the Constellation of Virgo. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago. The Zodiac was invented initially only as a measuring device. Astrologers had always used the visible constellation and their stars for astrological interpretation.
The closest named fixed star to the October 25 Solar Eclipse is Delta Boötis. It is labeled Thiba in the image above but is commonly called Princeps.
Fixed star Princeps gives a keen, studious and profound mind with the ability for research.  Princeps is a Latin word meaning Prince or Prime.
Constellation Boötes the Herdsman is said to give prosperity from work, strong desires, a tendency to excess, a fondness for rural pursuits, and some liking for occultism. 
New Moon October 2022 Summary
The Solar Eclipse October 2022 astrology is most affected by Venus. So a significant focus over the coming months will be love relationships. But Venus also rules how you appreciate and value things. It could be your self-worth or how much you love yourself. With the quincunx to Jupiter, it could also be your net worth.
Overall, this is a positive solar eclipse. Still, the quincunx aspects indicate a struggle to overcome some uncertainty or crisis related to love, money, and your ultimate levels of happiness and satisfaction.
Adjustments will be needed to compensate for changing rates of growth. How will your budget cope with economic downturns and the rising cost of living?
Fixed star Princeps gives the reasoning power to make critical decisions. The key is restricting yourself to a single goal.
The influence of the October 25 Solar Eclipse combines with that of the November 8 Lunar Eclipse. They form an eclipse phase that lasts about six months up to the Solar Eclipse on April 20, 2023. The best time for starting new projects is during the two-week waxing moon phase, from October 25 to November 8.
