Sometimes astrology is fun and useful; other times, because it names so many potentials (and not all of them good) I find it stimulates fear and foreboding. Today, because I have always deeply enjoyed this rich time of year, I wanted to bring LIGHT to the way this sign of Scorpio serves us all.
First, this recent solar eclipse sheds light on your deepest resources, and delivers empowerment (even through loss, change, transition), especially when you take a particular approach to what is happening in your life right now:
-be psychologically courageous and emotionally honest with yourself
-face the tough questions with investigative curiosity and grit
-lightly hold the intention to ONLY know and align with TRUTH
…and be willing to release any defenses or resistance to doing the above.
…Any and all of us can do this right now, to receive benefit.
…We may even discover new inner and external resources when we do.
***this longer bit is for those of you who know your birth chart***
SCORPIO SEASON & WHERE DOES SCORPIO (& PLUTO) FALL IN YOUR BIRTH CHART?
Scorpio season is a perfect time to align with your innate resourcefulness. This sign governs all things invisible and outside of your control, and paradoxically these situations teach us how to sit in our power amidst tumult, loss, mystery, change.
In your birth chart, the house(s) in which Scorpio falls show where you are infinitely resourceful; where, like a starfish, you can lose a limb and, in time, grow a new one. Loss serves you here, since it ALWAYS gives rise to personal transformation. In this area: Your psychological courage, and relentless self-honesty, are rewarded in fascinating and magical ways.
Here, you are tried and tested many times by situations that arise that are outside your control. These burn up any impurities or things you don’t need, allowing you to move forward empty, open. These challenges cause you to discover areas of inner resource previously invisible to you- rich, inner, wealth that you wouldn’t have otherwise discovered or sought out.
~note: these descriptions also apply to natal Pluto, so you can read for: Pluto, Scorpio in the house(s) and also for the recent eclipse, 2 degrees Scorpio– which holds a more immediate key to your experience right now.~
