Scorpio . . . .

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.

lotsa luv

Healing . . . a powerful journey

Rain so plentiful – replenishing all

I have one planetary sensitive cat . . . my dear feline companion, we’ve had quite a journey.  Little Miss Scorpio with big Miss Virgo . . . yes, we’ve had some ‘moments’ . . . no use denying.  But her loyalty and her love has never faltered . . . she’s accepted me warts and all . . . and continues to love me . . . her presence in my life . . . is no accident.  Issues of control and authority. . . not always so easy . . . many sides of myself she magnified for me.  And I’m still only learning. . . about her amazing healing abilities.

Planetary sensitive?  We have a household full of that . . . when the planets start moving. . . so do we.  Took me ages to recognise the basis of her skittish behaviour . . . tearing around the house, no way of settling.  From window to window . . . meowing at the door . . .’no, you’re not going out . . . I’m going to bed (and I have the final say!!!).  Yes, we have our moments.  When she’s so energetically jittery . . . well, honestly, it drives me nuts . . . ‘sit, be quiet . . . get into your bed’ .  She knows me enough now . . that she ‘appears’ to behave . . . that is till I’m out of the room . . .  she is a Scorpio. . . . after all.

Ahhh the Eclipse . . . it finally dawned . . . that’s why she’s all over the place . . . and not any old Eclipse . . .  her very own one . . . in Scorpio.  Well now I understand the reason . . . but still she’s had a few nights in the laundry . . . I have to sleep!!!

So even from the laundry I can hear my alarm . . . Snowie calling . . . it’s 4.25am.  She’s a bugger . . .

But I’m up . .  I’m like a kid at a fair . . . it’s another day . . . and the mornings are my favourite.  ‘Cause you can really feel the magick . ..  it’s vibration is strong . . . a birthing energy . . . a brand new day.  When you think . . . that no moment . . . will ever be repeated .  . how do we honour every moment that passes.  And it’s not just any moment . . . it comes with Life energy . . . totally full . . . completely original.  And we get to experience . . . how many in our Life?  No wonder I get excited when a new day arrives.

Out in the morning . . . the most incredible majesty . . . Life is happening . . . all around me.  I’m so incredibly fortunate.  Today the rain . . . more beautiful rain . . . bringing moisture to parched dry soil . . .filling the reservoirs for times ahead.

A flock of Ibis . . . now another. . .  and another . . .now there are many joining together,  circling in the sky  . . . right in front of me, caught up in the magick. . . .the magick of the morning.  Then over the trees . . . to welcome another lover of the morning.

Grey clouds moving from the South .  . . heading North . . . sharing their load with others waiting.  Trust so important, as we journey along this Life Path . . and understanding that all is provided.  Nothing has been left out . . . not one thing omitted.

The glorious kaleidoscope of Loving and Giving.  Tears rise, my brain steps back . . . allowing the Heart to relish this wonder.  Clouds moving swiftly, they know where they’re heading . . . distributing moisture to dry and parched gardens . . . bringing the sparkle that only moisture can contribute.  This Earth is a garden . . .of immense proportions . . . filled with so much Beauty, Love and Kindness.  All grow to share, to provide, to shelter.  All come forth . . .to offer their wisdom.

The doorway may seem invisible at times . . . the passage between the real and imagined.  We’ve become confused with what we think is real .. . in steel and concrete . . . nothing can grow.  Yes, all has it’s purpose, when used with awareness . . .providing support and structure . ..  to assist us on our journey.

We come into this world small yet so brave . .  and with so much wisdom, we carry from before.  We venture out . .  into this foreign land, protected by Love . .  a chord, connected to the real.  But as time moves on . . . we forget lots of things, our focus redirected into imaginary worlds.

Brand new yellow/green leaves. . . on the beautiful Paperbark . . .glisten with raindrops, moving gently with the wind.  They’re dancing . . .moving to the rhythm.  The rhythm of Life . . . can you feel it . . . can you see it?  Can you feel Mother Gaia supporting your existence.  Can you feel her love . . . such gentle fingers . . . caressing your face . . . as the breath enters your body.

You were given the greatest gift .  . available in this entire Universe.  You were given Life . .  and a home on this precious Earth . . .there is no greater miracle.

I love so deeply, so fully . . . so enchanted . . . by all the Magick . . . that supports my existence.  I wish I could really describe . . . in words . . . what it’s like.  But even beautiful words . . . have their limitations.  But it’s never the words, oh yes, they can be clever . . .but it’s the Heart . . .that directs the hand . . . to find the pen and paper.

And then safely ensconced between thumb and forefinger . . the Heart has the stage . . .and boy is she ready.

Immerse yourself in the magick of your existence . . . you are Loved . . . beyond, beyond, beyond . . . recognition.

A brief visit from the Sun on the fresh new leaves

Neptune . . . . and your feelings . . .

  this morning at Mahalia –  the rain’s come

 

It’s raining . . . . that’s big news in these parts . . . having moved into a dry spell.  We were all calling on the Rain God. . .  and he answered!  I knew he would . . . I trusted he’d come . . . I made sure I gave thanks, with my request . .  and then with full trust I waited . . . he arrived with such brilliance.  Strong, heavy, penetrating rain . . . the dry earth drinking, drinking and drinking . . . the frog’s exuberant chorus filled the early evening presence . . . making whoopy . . . for lots of gorgeous baby tadpoles.  So nice to have Frog energy.  The garden is radiant . . . all are smiling . . . insects, birds and the tiniest of tiny creatures . . . it’s easy to feel their jubilant joyfullness.  They too, trust the Rain God will come . . . they wait patiently for his arrival.

Neptune . . . Emperor of the Oceans . . . guardian of our feeling nature . . . is presently radiating strength and fullness.  At 6 hr 52 mins 38 seconds today (AEDST) . . .  that’s NSW here in Oz land . . . . Neptune finishes his retrograde travels and stands still for a while, very still . . . re-orienting himself to forward movement. This action intensifies a planet’s energy . . . as you could imagine . . . a massive ball of energy and matter stopping, standing still . . . all that energy for movement contained in one space . . . it’s very strong . . . and influences us considerably.  He’ll stay in this space for  2 days . . . and then at 6 hr 52 mins 38 sec (yes exactly the same time!! What’s the chances of that!!) on the 12th he begins his new forward journey.

Neptune rules our Feeling nature . . . he also resides over the Lands of Magickal Wonder . . . the Secret Gardens . . . Life behind the curtain.  He  tells the best stories.  He holds the gift of Healing . . . by putting us in touch with our feelings.  Feelings could be big these next few days . . . listen to them . . . they’re trying to get your attention.  Our feelings are a barometer . . . to what’s happening with us . . . it’s really best not to ignore them.  What you feel needs validation, acceptance . . . and honouring.  The Body is a Divine Creation.

All illness begins in our energetic fields . . . created from our Feelings, our Emotions . . . our Energy Bodies.  We can understand right there, what needs addressing.  We ignore these at our peril.  If the Life Energy cannot get our attention thru our Feelings and Emotions . . . it will travel further into our denser field . . . the Body.  Here it will speak very loudly . . . we don’t want that . . . best to listen when the volume is much lower.

We create our illness and disease . . . and we can also heal it.

This weekend is a blessed opportunity . . . to get in touch with our feelings . . . where in our body do we feel them . . . what are they trying to tell me . . . don’t ignore them.

We’re being given an incredible opportunity . . . swirling in the midst of this Scorpionic Eclipse . . . New Moon time . . . and Neptune.  Our beloved Neptune . . . the great Healer. . . . shining his full vibrational force upon us.  These are significant times . . . an amazing time. . . of rebirth and total transformation.  We are so very fortunate to be here . . . at this time . . . we will see miracles occurring.  They are already happening.

This moment of time is new . . . brand new . . . untouched by anything before or after . .  . and in this moment. . .we can experience the miracle of Life. . . . vibrating thru our Body . . . . cocooning us, surrounding us. . . in a myriad of life forms.  We are alive. . .  we are living. . . this incredible breath brings me Life . . . such enormous generosity.  Such overwhelming kindness.

So stop and feel . . . what do you feel . . . around you . . . in your body?  Slow down a few paces . . . watch and listen . . . observe .  . and open . . . to the incredible majesty that is occurring. . .  right now.  It’s all happening within you.

Have a great weekend . . . . wherever you are. . .  and whatever you’re doing.  But also, maybe, stop . . even for a few minutes . . .  and allow Neptune to step forward, let him speak to you . . . . his magick is delightfully mysterious. . .  inspiringly creative. . . . and so lovingly healing.

Enjoy your living

lotsa luv . . . . marilynxxxx
