October 9 Mercury enters Scorpio
Friends don’t keep secrets but Scorpios do. Communication in the sign of Scorpio functions on a needs to know basis. Although you may pour your heart out to Scorpion, you’ll only realize that you learned nothing about them days or weeks later. Mercury in Scorpio pulls us towards deep conversations about our hopes and fears. About the things that keep us up at night. Clawing at our souls to be seen. We turn inward from the scales of speaking our truth towards wisdom, fear or denial. How do you hold truth? Do you shy away from what is burying your head in the sand or use your oxygen mask to explore the depths of humanity.
October 23 Sun enters Scorpio
We balanced our scales and now to give us the strength to face our darkness Scorpio comes forth to deliver the medicine of painful healing. Scorpios are ruled by the planet Pluto, signifying their dark mysterious personalities. I mean let’s be honest Pluto was the last planet to be discovered it was that far outside of our reality. Then, Pluto lost its planet status signifying just how little we really understand Scorpio’s and who they are. One minute you think you have them figured out and the next you’re not even sure if they are human because no one should be that hard to define. You may not feel that you can define a Scorpio but best believe there’s a really easy way to recognize them. Scorpio’s didn’t do all that deep sea psychological diving for nothing. They know who they are, their values, and what they desire. They are the person at the party who isn’t loud, doesn’t have to be the center of attention and yet when they saunter by your table every eye turns in their direction. Scorpio’s knowledge of self and others is magnetic. It is highly desirable because they are the most stable water sign and their emotional states are together.
Scorpio’s connection to the underworld means they are permanently connected to the spiritual realm. Giving them access to what is occurring beneath the surface of our actions, thoughts, and beliefs. When Scorpio’s take this knowing combined with their inherent value of human worth and rise from the underworld they soar as the Eagle.Scorpio’s in their Eagle form take their place beside the Libra warriors of Justice and the Sagittarian Phoenix to defend those who are may not have the strength to defend themselves. They are the swift retribution brought down on those who harm others. Their keen eyesight let’s the see divine truth while their talons can both snatch those in need out of harms way while decimating the perpetrators. The Eagle is just one option. If Scorpio becomes to focused on self, wallowing in a state of mistrust and suspicion, then they may become the grey lizard. Never leaving the ground, never using their skills to assist themselves or each other. The grey lizard lacks perspective and passion, preferring to stay close to the ground where they feel safe. Scorpio’s can be whatever they wish. They are the darkness before creation. They are the space that exists before all new things come into being. They must make the choice of fear versus flight.
October 31 Mercury enters Sagittarius and Venus Retrograde enters Libra.
There is much happening today. Mercury enters into Sagittarius and Venus retrograde moves into Libra. We feel moved to share more, embrace transparency and have more fun. After the heavy cleansing of the past month, we are ready for this break. Yet, depending on where you are in your journey you may embody any of the faces of Kali. May you act though as the destroyer of ignorance and fear. Perhaps you have found that the scales were just too much for you this past few weeks. As others have risen speaking without thought of their words impact, transmute that energy into power for your work and purpose. Sagittarius is an energy of knowledge and exploration. You cannot learn sometimes unless you are willing to step out from your comfort zone. So take a step of faith with the belief that you will learn what you need and be able to serve as you desire.
As Venus retrogrades back into Libra, I caution you to approach this time with great respect. Libra has expressed herself recently as the energy of Oya and Oya is not here to play. If you are not familiar with Oya I suggest that you just give your respects to this energy and not give offerings. Oya made it very clear that she brings us through gates into the underworld of the colder months of the year. Her message is to let what is passed die. Focus on what builds you up over what brings you down. This is a time of prosperity and abundance but only if you are open to receiving it. The scales have been laced before you. What have you hidden from the world afraid to even acknowledge? Place them on the scales along with your heart. Which is heavier? Which guides you? The influence of others and their expectations or your essence from within? It’s choice. Choose wisely.
