It all began . . . this story . . . this morning. I started thinking about my current feelings (in a certain area, that’s as much as I’ll reveal) . . . how different they were from times previous. On the surface, they may appear similar (well they don’t actually) . . . but their foundation is so different. I started thinking about ‘obsession’. I recognised its intrusions into my life. Anyway this got me started on Scorpio . . . doesn’t take much to start me. Then with the pen securely held between my thumb and forefinger, a blank page . . . and my channels open . . . the words start flowing. I really do love writing . . . ’cause it’s not just the words on the page . . . it’s the experience. You see, I get to experience what I’m writing. That’s so neat! So many ‘ah ha’ moments.
Mr Scorpio is quite present in my chart (Astrological Natal Chart) . . . so his influence hasn’t gone unnoticed. Scorpio’s not that much interested with the surface goings on . . . . he likes to get to the juicy bits. He has a wicked sense of humour . . . and is not afraid of bringing up taboo subjects. After all that’s his territory. Nothing taboo about them to him. He lives in the Underworld . . . you know the one . . . kept tightly locked behind a steel door . . . locked securely, sound proof walls . . . no light . . . etc etc. Black and Red. . . conjure up any images . . . ?
Pluto rules Scorpio . . . the Underworld God who brings the blessing of transformation. He’s not light . . . not by any stretch . . . and he can be heavy-handed. But he’s loyal to the core . . . he walks his talk .. . and you’ll never be the same . . . once you meet him . . . intimately . . . of course!! He demands a closeness. . . that may at first seem uncomfortable. But there’s no escaping him . . . once he has his sights set on you. . . you’ve had it (with the past) . . . may as well surrender. I didn’t say it was going to be easy.
Scorpio’s energy is very healing . . . he’s the Master Physician. His x-ray vision allows him to spot the ‘disease’ immediately. His hands . . . used with such precision and knowledge . . . knowing how to cut out. . . the festering tissue. He understands the Psyche . . . he’s also a Master in this field . . . he knows, with surety . . . how the psyche directs the body.
He’s very gifted, our Scorpio friend. A great friend to have around . . . when delicate operations are needed. He won’t pander to your Ego . . . or whisper sweet nothings in your ear. He won’t put you to bed and make you tea and scones (you need Cancer for that). He won’t beat around the bush . . . he’ll come right to the point. I love his honesty and his direct approach.
He can simmer . . . oh yes . . . when something is rubbing him the wrong way. He can be revengeful . . . he has a powerful resource of energy (best not to ignite it). He is Pluto the destroyer . . . and the bringer of new life.
He is our friend . . . but the journey with him may not always be easy. But you can wear your battle scars with pride . . . and acceptance. You’ve paid your dues . . . and now have a right . . . to stand up and be accepted. The fire has burnt thru you . . . no sickness remains . . . he’s the destroyer of all . . . that’s dead and decayed . .. rotten and putrid.
He has the guts . . . to not only face this stinking, rotten pile of baggage . . . but walk right into the middle . . . and start cleaning it up. He’s a Warrior . . . he’s a Physician . . . a man with x-ray vision . . . he’s a smouldering Lover, he can be jealous and possessive. It’s because he gives his whole Heart . . . the depths of his being. And he accepts equal return . . . not good to invite his fury.
So it’s healing time . . . down to the depths . . . take this opportunity . . . it really is a blessing. Leave the surface for a while . . . a journey is required . . . down, down, down . . . . down to the centre. . . the ground floor of your being. It’s dark, it’s smokey . . . it’s red with blood . . . it’s intense, the energy hits you . . . as soon as you walk in. You’ve been invited to visit the Underworld . . . down to Hades domain . . . he’s been patiently waiting . . . for your arrival.
You say you’re a little hesitant . . . not sure you’re ready to go there. Well, when you hear the raspy-throated call . . . you have no choice, you will go there . . . willingly . . . or without your agreement.
You see Healing begins at the deepest level . . . of all you carry within you. The storage space where you hide your ‘unpleasantries’ . . . the things that are socially unacceptable. Hades doesn’t give a poop . . . he’s not governed by temporary niceties. He’s been around for a long, long time . . . he knows the territory thoroughly.
So here we sit on the Eve of the Eclipse . . . this mighty Super New Moon in Scorpio.
Now you have the choice . . . to let go . . . or hold on . . I can tell you what will be the easiest. But, I know . . . you need to work it out for yourself.
Neptune goes Direct today . . . jump on his wave and let him carry you to the depths . . he’ll make it a little easier . . at least you’ve got the transport sorted . . . see, all’s taken care of.
Enjoy yourself . . . . and ALLOW the HEALING to happen.
