Today, the Sun changes signs from harmony-seeking Libra to passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio. The guiding principle of Scorpio is “I desire”. With the Sun in Scorpio our consciousness is drawn towards depth, intimacy, and extremes of feeling.
Superficiality simply will not do for the next 30 days. We have the desire to get to the bottom of matters. We are more interested in that which is hidden, taboo, secret or suppressed. Scorpio’s energy is passionate, strong-willed, and intense. Used in its highest vibration, it can be an immensely healing and transformative energy.
With the Sun in Scorpio, depth of perception becomes the norm. Everyone becomes much more aware of the mystery of life. We are sensitive to the dark spaces within our own souls, and more tuned in as well to depth connection with others around us. With the night of the dead/Samhain, we celebrate these feelings, our perception, and the thinness of the veil between the worlds.
On a lower vibration, Scorpio can express jealousy, vindictiveness, and use manipulative tactics. Bring your awareness towards your feelings, fears and behaviors. As best as you can, embrace all your feelings, let go of your fears and strip yourself from behaviors that no longer serve you.
All this is especially true if you are a Leo or Scorpio Sun-sign or Rising-sign. As a Scorpio, you will feel a good dose of confidence and playfulness in the next four weeks; as a Leo, you are more aware of your own shadow parts…anything that you have suppressed or denied about yourself: integrate all those parts, as best as you can.
