Deep Scorpio waters

We’ve been learning a lot about Scorpio energy this last year. Jupiter has pierced the underbelly with lightning bolts of truth & justice, & the pain & trauma that’s been buried has risen to the surface.

Scorpio is not comfortable in the stark light of day. It prefers caverns, caves, protection from a canopy. It understands privacy, protection & the power inherent in the depths of truth. Scorpio knows the reality of both power & powerlessness. 

The exposure that has occurred this last year is raw & uncomfortable. It’s vulnerability front & centre & there’s no denying what we’re being asked to deal with ~ personally & collectively.

Now with Venus retrograding through Scorpio, as Jupiter packs its bags for an adventure through Sagittarius (Nov 9), we’re being challenged to not  abandon our post. As uncomfortable as it feels to be surrounded by unfinished business, it’s just that: unfinished.

Venus is guiding us through some difficult waters. Scorpio is a FIXED water sign. It knows how to freeze, remain still & impenetrable. The problem with activating this response out of fear is that it disconnects us from what we want & need: deep, meaningful, trustworthy, intimate connections.

Venus wants us to remember what we value, what deserves our energy. In times of crisis, when we are bereft & overwhelmed by grief, what do we truly need? Instead of pushing away & isolating ourselves with an ice wall, take this Rx cycle as an opportunity. When we cultivate connections from a place of vulnerability, they’re based in trust that will nourish & sustain us far more than any deprivation response.

Scorpio doesn’t trust everyone, for good reason. Begin with trusting yourself & the obstacles will begin to melt away. Transformation is Scorpio’s territory, after all.

Venus Rx in Scorpio

Look around to see what is dead or dying. The Venus Retrograde cycle is no joke, and Scorpio does not suffer fools.

The Venus Rx cycle is a 40 day – 40 night dark night of the soul journey. It’s a fasting and a detox of our values, our relationships, the people and places we’ve poured our love and money and support into…and the stench of death and decay is wafting through.

 

What once brought us joy, vitality and purpose may now be a shell of its former self. We may also find, if we care to have that honest, penetrating look at ourselves, that we’ve outgrown parts of ourselves and moved on, but the situation remains; the vase is still holding up the dead flowers, but no amount of water is going to breathe life back into them.

 

Encompassed in this current Rx cycle is Neptune at the midpoint of its journey through Pisces, and Uranus at the midpoint of the Nodes. Midpoints are a peak of energy where we can look both back and forth; familiar enough with the energy at this stage that we know the pattern, but also aware that maturity beckons in our choices.

Mutable Magic – the changing of seasons

MUTABLE MAGIC

Screen Shot 2018-09-11 at 5.01.30 PM

The mutable signs ~ Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces ~ all represent the energy of the changing seasons.

There’s been an irritability in the air. Not of the Mars variety where we could blow our top. It’s based in the mutable energy of change that doesn’t let us settle. 

Mutable signs remind us that change is necessary. Stagnation is not an option and remaining in the past lacks vitality. In such unpredictable and often volatile times, we seek the security of things unchanging. Change represents chaos, and chaos reminds us that we don’t have control. But chaos is from where life emerges. It’s the void that contains the all; where we come from and to where we all return.

Each Mutable sign follows a Fixed sign. The Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) represent the peak of a season. There is no denying in February that we’re in the depths of Winter in the Nth Hemisphere – and the height of Summer in the South. 

Fixed energy is sure and stable. It’s the foundation stones upon which we build life. Mutable signs, however, transition us from this stability, simultaneously aware of what it’s emerging from and heading toward. Moving, changing, gathering information, mutability is never still, never stagnant. Always curious and of service.

Mutable signs gather the information we need to transition to the peak of our potential. They are the gate keepers to the Solstice and Equinox. They are the changing of the guard from one season to another. It is both receptive and dynamic.

A snake sheds its skin before it emerges anew. The energy of change can be uncomfortable because we can’t rest and we have no guarantee of what’s to come. We have to lean into trust and roll with the energy of now. 

This particular mutable season is within the veil of a Venus Retrograde cycle. The energy of change is more potent because we’re being asked to look at what we’re going to leave behind in the Underworld. We will take a Phoenix journey down and through Scorpio’s lair. If you’re struggling against the winds of change right now, ask yourself what you’re holding onto and why. What is lingering from your past that’s draining your vitality?

There is endurance to mutable energy. It has the ability to adapt. To bend and not break. Take this tree wisdom with you though the Underwolrld. We’re all going together. No one is spared.

The psychic airs are thick

CAN YOU FEEL IT?!

The psychic airs are thick right now. Don’t deny your intuition. Don’t dilute your magic!
We’ve just slipped through the veil of the upcoming VENUS RETROGRADE cycle & the whispers are circling right in front of us! #scorpiorealness

With Saturn grinding to a hault this week, earthly reality can be challenging (to say the least), so keep those psychic – dream – messenger channels open to help guide the way.

We’re heading to the Underworld. Keep clear about what & who is going with you.
