Here's the thing... this coming week is the boiling point of a witch's brew that has been stewing for ages. The coming Scorpio New Moon Eclipse on the morning of 11/3 will accelerate the most authentic astrological energy of this decade for those of us willing to shed the skin that no longer serves. I'm going to try to leave the Planets out of this post and just let it rip without jargon or reservation. Permission to come aboard, Captain?
The 2012 Shift did not bring a doomsday deluge, but aren't we all feeling the tidal wave? The peaks and troughs of authentic emotional experience and expression have developed into something almost comically dynamic. We've awakened into a dream that sends the exhilarating surf of evolutionary ecstasy one moment and the overwhelming undertow into our darkness the next.
We're told to have faith in the raging waters; told they will carry us to the shores of higher self. We're told to surrender to the surge and try to enjoy the ride. Okay... Or we could set a course, plunge the paddles, and pull our way to exactly where we WANT to be. We could choose to honor our divine right as creators and act.
Scorpio is a Service to Self Growth in the Waters of Heart. It is sorceress, shaman, and alchemist. Scorpio is the investigation of the entire human emotional spectrum, from the highest highs of ecstasy to the lowest lows of despair. There is no fear of death. Death is simply the precursor to rebirth. And old ways must be destroyed for new ways to be born. There is no fear of the darkness... knowing there are shiny gems to bring back from the tunnels of the deep, damp rabbit holes of authentic experience. The further into the darkness we are willing to venture, the brighter the light on the other side. For there is no fear of the light either.
It's time to plant Scorpio seeds. It's a time to shed the skin; time to let the Phoenix burn and rise from her ashes. It's time for transformation...Evolution! All Hallow's Eve / Samhain softens the veil between worlds and a heavenly hole to the Other Side will open wide tomorrow night at 10:30pm PST. If we fear its hellish appearance, we might just miss the boat. The lessons are coming faster and faster, but so are the rewards as we stand centered in our authenticity. This Libra cycle has shown us that even the empathic open heart can be a strategy to avoid self.
Scorpio demands we never lose ourselves to the demands of anything outside ourselves by reminding us the outside IS the inside. As Within, So Without. What do you wish to be without so you may authentically be within? It is a time of rEvolution and as we proactively set the course for change, plunge our paddles, and pull, pull, pull... we will become. No need to push. We only must clear the conditioning and rewrite the rules that have trained us not to allow true experience and expression of authentic emotion, passion, and desire.
As we honor ourselves and Spirit by igniting the burning Fire of Will and the rushing Water of Heart we will align to our highest excitement. We have served our buried emotions by creating a shadowy self that has controlled us. Now is the time to honor and integrate our shadow. The proposed poison is medicine. The lead is gold! We unbury our emotions now and control them to serve us. We are powerful. And we find that righteously wielded power is a beautiful birthright. For we are agents of divine destruction and creation.
I can't wait to see what we create.
Oh, did I mention the 4th and central Pluto-Square Pluto will be exact tonight at 9:30pm, an hour before it is triggered by the Libra Moon as Mercury Retrograde conjuncts Saturn, Sun, and North Node, in preparation for the Scorpio New Moon Eclipse? Happy Halloween... wear something special.
Love and Planets,
