Scoprio 2010: Don't Mourn...Celebrate!
like thinking of possibilities.
At any time, an entirely new possibility
is liable to come along and spin you
off in an entirely new direction.
The trick, I've learned, is to
be awake to the moment.
~ Doug Hall, Author ~
Scorpio (Oct-Nov) is my favorite time of the year for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that we can simultaneously complete and initiate whole new aspects of our Being. I have tracked it for years and it is by far the BEST time for consciously planting the seeds of your ideas that sprout by Taurus (April-May), which is only 6 months. When you think about it, that is not long at all to create a new experience or manifest a dream or express a newly discovered piece of your soul. In astrology, the so-called 'tough' angles may be hard to get through, however, they also propel us to the next level and open up new possibilities. NOW is no different. We are living at a pivotal time in Earth's history, and through some very challenging planetary alignments. However, this is a time to CELEBRATE the possibility that the seeds we plant individually, socially and collectively NOW ~ WILL blossom in Divine Time & Order.
It's not so much that we're afraid of change
or so in love with the old ways, but
it's that place in between that we fear.
~ Marilyn Ferguson, Author ~
We are at this "in-between" place, also referred to as the "Sweet Spot" - that very thin line between seed and new life, which breaks through that "Sweet Spot" and IN to new existence. This is a special time during this natural cycle to "contribute & co-create". This is the most potent time of the year!
Scorpio as ruled by Mars asks, "What do you deeply desire?"
Scorpio as ruled by Pluto, "What are you willing to sacrifice to have that desire fulfilled?"
Are you willing to SACRIFICE ...
~ skepticism ... for critical thinking? ~
~ fear ... for love? ~
~ doubt ... for faith? ~
~ poverty consciousness ... for abundance? ~
~ groundless low self-esteem ... for knowing who you are? ~
~ false pride ... for true confidence? ~
Scorpio resides in 1-3 parts of your chart, and those are the areas of your life where you can sink to the depths and/or soar to the heights. It's where your power lies, and how you choose use your power is your responsibility, as well as your own free will and choice. In the meantime, we must consider how ANYTHING comes in to being? Life, whether a living organism who calls Earth home or a project/idea you've nurtured from concept-to-reality, requires both the visible and invisible to bring it in to existence. There is the work you do to contribute to the healthy development of whatever you create (Scorpio is the energy of creation) and then you have to step back and ALLOW SPIRIT to breathe life-force in to it. Whether creating another human, or an expression of your soul, you are ALWAYS A CO-CREATOR in the process, you are a very necessary part of the equation, but you are not the SOURCE. The void is where the unseen action is, seeds germinate in the darkness, away from prying eyes and meddling. Whatever you create, whether within you or around you, is your responsibility to protect (your creation). I personally like the custom of waiting 3 months in to a pregnancy before announcing it to family and friends, I think it should be applied across the board. Before telling others about your creative ideas, marinate them, get acquainted with them yourself ~ connect and allow the roots to deepen and strengthen. This is Scorpio/Pluto territory.
A person needs at intervals to
separate from family & companions
and go to new places.
One must go without familiars
in order to be open to influences,
~ Katharine Butler Hathaway, Author ~
Scorpio, ruled by Pluto, the planet of death, rebirth and transformation, suggests that pain is sometimes part of the process of purification and certainly of 'birthing'. We know women experience pain when giving birth, but what do we leave that experience with? (most of the time, with few obvious exceptions) but a GIFT!! What do you think a caterpillar feels as it wiggles out of the cocoon? or any baby lifeform bursting through the container it arrives in? Connect to your will to LIVE ~ THRIVE ~ PROSPER ~ and MAXIMIZE THE MOMENTS in your every day life. Life is not a blockbuster film, or the Grammy awards, no brass band is going to play for your every accomplishment, you have to CONNECT ~ in this moment ~ to YOUR BLISS ~ YOUR JOY ~ YOUR HAPPINESS ~ YOUR PEACE ... WITHIN! Within your own being, within your own heart, within your own sacred space and most importantly within as many moments as you can consciously count, starting with NOW the PRESENT MOMENT.
The opposite of Scorpio is Taurus, which rules GRATITUDE, among other things. We must, in every moment, count our many blessings. I highly recommend reflecting on the seeds you planted 6mo-1yr ago which have come to fruition and those which need more nurturing to become mature enough to be released.
You learn to speak by speaking,
to study by studying,
to run by running, to work by working;
and just so, you learn to love by loving.
All those who think to learn in any other way
deceive only themselves.
~ Saint Francis de Sales ~
Kelly Adds: You learn ...
... to create - by creating
... faith - by believing in the Source of your supply
... cultivating beauty & sustenance - by planting & tending the seeds
In my own personal review, it occurred to me that when I remember being "most effective" - it was often because I did NOT think as much or as long before acting, but acted on instinct and in the moment. As we get older, we are more conscious of what can go wrong, and that youthful sense of invincibility, while in dire need of some temperance, actually serves an amazing purpose: More often than not ~ things go RIGHT! (Reflect on your own stats, I bet you find that things work out more than they DON'T.) And even when things went wrong, none of it killed me, but gave me another clue about my Self, in addition to more clarity on my true desires.
I suggest releasing as quickly as possible that which is done or not working, and embracing new options as soon as possible so you can benefit from them or count them out and move on. Really, what do you have to LOSE? failing? you've failed before; looking foolish, I'm sure that's been done at some point too. What should scare you more than anything is giving up without even trying (to fulfill your potential). There is always a way to do what you want to do, even if you have to do it in stages, just START doing what gives you joy. Start being part of communities which support and nourish you, while also allowing you to serve in the community you care about. Artists should be in the 'artists' world ~ Writers should be in the 'writers' world etc, immerse your Self in the realm to which you wish to belong. Start with some aspect of your Self that you can BUILD ON (because expansion IS near, you must stabilize). Do the planting in Scorpio time and pruning in Taurus time and watch how the Garden that is YOU blossoms with its own unique energy, and attracts the perfect creatures you wish to live with and help sustain. Remember, gardens are home for both beauty and sustenance, two things we really cannot live without.
Scorpio asks that we purify any wounds, allow time to heal and contribute the necessary energy for healing, release them and be born anew. You will KNOW you have been born anew by the new choices you make ... it will become automatic in your behavior ~ in your body language ~ in your words and deeds. Scorpio energy burns off the dross and reveals the pure stuff within YOU, revealing what you are truly made of at the core. And you are made of tougher stuff than you, a child of God & the Universe, give your Self credit for! You are not always privy to the grand design, but you're always co-creating on some level, so tune OUT the nonsense, tune IN to your common sense and extra sensory perceptions, this is not the time to take things for granted or at face-value. Tune in constantly to your FEELING nature, your INTUITION, your GUT, your 6 Senses are all available and much more reliable as a compass to direct you. And while all humans on the planet are growing along with Mother Earth, your INVISIBLE HELP ~ your Angels ~ your Guides ~ your Ancestors ~ and many benevolent energies and entities (which want to see Earth and all living things thrive and prosper) are ready, willing and much better able to ASSIST YOU. However, help has to be invited. None of the above will ever supercede your free will and choice, you have to invite the invisible help IN and create a welcoming space for creativity to occur. And this month, the veils are thinnest and you have much more access to the invisible realms than at any other time of the year.
What do you have to lose by ... Clarifying your desire ... Owning what you are willing to sacrifice ... then ... Setting an intention ... Creating an inviting space ... then ... Trusting Spirit and Connecting to the FEELING of your request(s) fulfilled. Simple yet powerful exercise that won't take long at all.
Embrace Infinite Possibilities
Today a thousand doors of
enterprise are open to you,
inviting you to useful work.
To live at this time is an
and a sacred obligation
devolves upon you
to make right use of
Today is the day in which
to attempt and achieve

Thanks for that message Poetic, I am Scorpio, and i needed that.
Blessings Bee Xx
I definitely needed this also. I think Scorpios are one of the most complex individuals. We have a very hard time understanding our gifts and balancing them into our daily life. Please keep em coming all year long.
thank you i am a scorpio too and found that very interesting to read xxx
Very good read !!! I needed this !!
I love this time of year as well - and all you Scorpios, complex as you are, I love you too! I have definitely felt the thinning of the veil. Messages are coming to me as though through a trumpet rather than a whisper. In the time of Taurus, I found myself making very difficult decisions to pursue health and happiness for myself and my daughter - at the expense of our nuclear family and sense of security. It's been a trying time to learn how to function as a family apart; and everyday we still find some new bumps along the road.
One of the trumpet calls came to me Oct. 30th, completely unanticipated and unexpected - it beckoned me to stop thinking of myself when I was in a situation in which I completely should have - and stop to ask these young street kids how I could help them. It was cold, wet, wee hours of morning. One in particular, I was guided to help. I still am. Now, I am using all of my available resources, in the safest and most effective way possible to help not only him - but others like him - to either find their way back home, or get the help they need.
It's ironic that during the time of Taurus I began planting the seeds for happiness and health in my own home; and now I find myself on a mission to help homeless children in my town harvest those same rewards which they as innocents have always been entitled to.
Let me know if you would like to be involved.
PS - Moral of the story - sometimes our harvesting isn't a direct correllation to seeds we planted. Be open and alert, listen to the voices or the signals from the Universe, the Source - let them guide you to your path.
Thank you and thats wonderful!
one of those lessons you have to share - maybe i didn't need to tell my story; but then how much sense could the moral make? ; )
you are welcome - and it feels wonderful. in my search to find him and help further - i've been able to meet and help other good kids too. it isn't always life-changing, though like the butterfly flapping it's wings starting a hurricane, who knows? sometimes, it's as recognizing that maybe you don't have "spare change" or "cigarettes"; but you can bring them to the warmth of a cafe, buy a cup of coffee and breakfast - and just listen for a while. sometimes, reminding people that they are of value just because they are life itself, is all that matters.
A kind word spoken, I'm taking in my daughter's friend in a few weeks, she is going to stay with me for awhile so we will see what happens.
I hope it goes well - that's huge of you to do. My mother did that for my best friend when we were fifteen. Her home life was so unloving. If only she had been able to appreciate the kindness and the gift my mom was trying to give her at that time...
Yeah, I don't think she will be a problem she is kind of lost and I'm kind of lonely so it should work out.
lovely - i'm sure you will give her great guidance and companionship; and vis-a-vis.
i don't pray - but when i do what i do - i will keep you all in my best wishes.
wildplaces, if this is too personal... I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND if you tell me it's none of my business. If I offend you I am soo sorry. that is not my intentions. I have seen you on several threads and actually just responded to you on one of them. You have talent and gifts that I find admirable so it is only with deepest respect that I ask... if you don't pray, what is it that you do? Is it meditation or manifestation or another form? Prayer has worked instantly for me in the past and sometimes it seemed that it never worked. I have been on both sides of the fence. I do believe in prayer but I constantly feel like there's more. I meditate and have recently started manifesting. Again, I'm sorry if this is to personal.
