Sun Transit through Scorpio

scorpio sun

The Sun will make it’s transit through the Scorpio constellation from October 23rd till November 21st, according to the Tropical astrology.  The guiding principle of Scorpio is “I desire”.  Scorpio is the sign of depth, intimacy, and extremes of feelings.  Scorpio is penetrating, transformative and unstoppable.  Mediocrity does not satisfy neither.  Scorpio’s energy is provocative, usually in a quiet, as well as passionate, strong-willed and intense way.  It can be an immensely healing and transformative energy.

In Libra, we strive for equality and fairness.  In Scorpio, however, instinctively believes that life simply isn’t fair.  Jealousy, secrecy, beating a dead horse, and manipulation are some of the more negative expressions of Scorpio.  Scorpio can be rigid, stubborn, and have an unyielding point of view.

Scorpio represents the toxic waters.  All of that suppressed stuff and emotions we shove away deeply that we don’t want to deal with.  Scorpio’s energy is not only represented by the scorpion but also by the phoenix, death and rebirth through dismemberment and remembering.  It’s time to look deeper, shine a light into the shadows and transform one another with truth.

scorpio scorpionHalloween takes place under the influence of Scorpio and that’s no coincidence.  We all adopt the scorpion’s intensity during this time.  As the days grow shorter and Autumn fades into winter in the Northern hemisphere, the natural world begins to decay–a reminder of our own mortality that awakens our curiosity about the meaning of life and its many realms.

Scorpio energy brings intensity and mystery.  You may be drawn to searching the darkest regions of the Universe to bring all the hidden mystical and mysterious knowledge into the bright light of the day.  This energy has a magnetic pull at this time of the year– all you have to do is tune into it.

The sign Scorpio brings highly perceptual psychic abilities.  Scorpio’s energy is good for cutting through the “BS” and getting to look at things for what they really are. Superficially simply will not do with the Sun in Scorpio.  We have the desire to get to the bottom of matters.  All that is hidden, taboo, secret, or suppressed, interests us, because normally it is considered socially unacceptable or that you may be rejected by a type of behavior.

scorpio risenYou should be able to utilize some key motivators centered on ambition while Scorpio rules.  Position and power may be yours for the taking if you shoot for the stars.  If you really set your mind on what you want and passionately commit to your endeavors, you’ll be supported.  It’s about believing in yourself and knowing you are capable of greatness.

One of Scorpio’s symbol is the Eagle,  which represents intelligence and clear visions, so you may want to pay attention to your “visions” or dreams this month.  Keeping a dream journal may be enlightening, especially if you’re looking for some specific answers.    Visions don’t necessarily have to occur at night, you can also get sudden flashes of insight during your waking hours, if you’re looking for them.

Scorpio’s energy is passionate, dynamic, and observant.  You may find that this vibration seeps into your bones and makes you feel more powerful then any other time of the year.  There are lessons to be learned on how to live your life the rest of the year.  Use the time while the Sun is in Scorpio to access your sensual side.  This isn’t necessarily about sex, but rather experiencing the sensuous feelings that mean you’re truly alive.  Turn everything you do into an opportunity to be passionate and intense about life.

The Moon

 

 

moon 3

The Moon represents mothers, oceans, and oceans of emotions.  It affects our emotions and speaks to us on a personal level.  It represents our deepest personal needs, our basic habits and reactions, our unconscious mind, how we feel and express feelings, and our emotional character.  The Moon is associated with the mother and the feminine energy.  It is the ruler of Cancer.  It is our spontaneous and instinctual reactions.

Working with the Moon brings quick but less powerful results, more like a nudge rather than a shove, compared to working with the Sun.  The Moon is the Earth’s closest celestial neighbor and this closeness makes Luna the perfect choice to empower us for challenging portions of our path.  When we find ourselves working with magick to help confront a challenge, connecting that rite to the lunar cycle will bring help in more of an immediate form (a door opening, a friend coming with the answer, etc.,) while working with the Sun will shift things in a more Universal level.  For instance, while the situation itself may not work out, it will position you for the next step of your path, which in the “bigger scheme of things” is a good result.

As the Moon goes through its birth, death, and rebirth process becoming anew every single month we too follow this cycle to bring about our manifestations, undergo personal transformation, and receive inner healing.  Certain cycles are used specifically for certain purposes.  The New Moon is a time for new beginnings.  The Waxing Moon is a time for building and creating.  The Full Moon is a time for harvest.  The Waning Moon is a time for releasing and shedding away.  Lastly, the Dark Moon is a time for rest.  Knowledge of the movement of our  sky can open and heighten your awareness  of the Universe and greatly expand your understanding of how the celestial bodies affect your emotions, moods, mind, life experiences, and even your health.  It can empower you to respond to life circumstances as they arise.

moon 2The Moon makes its way through the zodiac wheel every month changing signs every 2 1/2 days, where as the Sun it takes a whole year to move through the zodiac wheel, changing signs only once every month.  When you work with the Moon, you should keep in mind the phase that it is in (as each phase will carry a very specific purpose and general use and the sign that it’s in itself will carry its own signature and energy.  All you have to do is align your intention with the energies that are already present and let the magic happen.
