Planetary news this week: October 23, 2017

This week brings some shifts in energies as the Sun moves into Scorpio, beginning the Scorpio season of darkness, myth and magic.  With the mind already processing the inner workings of the psyche now that Mercury is in Scorpio, and Jupiter’s entry into Scorpio squeezes out the nasty secrets in the entertainment business as well as the political realm (both Jupiter’s realm), we can no longer hide from the difficult and the dark.

On a positive note, challenging conversations may become easier under the influence of Scorpio, and our personal path to growth can be illuminated with the Sun aligned with expansive Jupiter.  Mars, the planet that inspires and motivates us, has moved into Libra where it yearns to find balance and integrate the confusion of opposites into one complete whole of understanding and compassion.

Over the next two weeks you may find yourself feeling more emotionally sensitive and reactive than usual as a challenging square aspect takes shape between Saturn (tests and insecurity) and Chiron (emotional wounds).  While this can be an uncomfortable dynamic, it can also help to facilitate the processing and release of old wounds that bind us to the past.

Scorpio Time

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.”
