With the Sun now in Scorpio, there is a cooling down of the heat of action, and a deepening of our awareness into the realm of emotion and raw experience. The days are getting shorter, and the dark is in ascension.
Scorpio often gets a bad rap for being manipulative and full of secrets, but we can all learn from the Scorpionic fearless embrace of the sheer reality that underlies all of life. Death, sex, jealousy – all have a role to play in the human experience.
The Sun illuminates any sign through which it passes, and for the next month or so we have the opportunity to delve deep. Thanks to Molly Hall for this quote from Thoreau which exemplifies the passage through Scorpio: “Do what you love. Know your own bone; gnaw at it, bury it, unearth it, and gnaw at it still.”
