With the New Moon and Sun in Scorpio we have the second Eclipse in this Autumn’s cycle. Venus moves into Scorpio as well, to highlight the transformative power of love.
New Moons give us a time for allowing the emptiness and feeling the space in between things, ideas, actions.
With the fertile soil that comes from the releasing we’ve done since the last full moon, we start with the seed of love inside the self and for the self. We feel its roots and allow it to expand outward. See how that expansion changes your life as Mercury goes direct now in Libra soon to be in Scorpio. See how you can communicate that love to every cell in your being and, in turn, start sharing it with the world.
Scorpio energy has three traditional symbols – the Scorpion – scrappy, a great survivor that packs a mighty wallop. The Eagle –a powerhouse that sees the big picture from on high and can spot that which sustains it from a great distance. The Phoenix – the symbol of a being who is willing to sacrifice itself to the flames for the sake of transformation and rebirth.
If you start to feel depleted, lost or off-base, just return to the idea of the love inside of yourself, for yourself and allow it to grow in you, filling you, radiating outward once again. As a touchstone during this time, you can see which symbol of Scorpio you identify with at the moment, and meditating on it, allow it to give you some information about how to proceed.
The Love that the Source of all that is has for you is as much a part of your physical being as your heart and your blood. The yearning to join with Source energy – whatever you may call it, drives the soul forward on its journey. The fuel is love.
An eclipse meeting with the first degree of Scorpio joined by Venus in Scorpio means that the transformative power, the drive to move with the ultimate evolutionary goal of meeting with All That Is, is going to be initiated by love.
Divulge at least one of your inner secrets. At least to yourself. Get to know the seed of love inside you – what does it want to grow for you? As you are moving through your day and defining your yearnings, return and return again to that fecund earth inside you that knows just what, when and how it wants to grow.
Lots of love to you.
