Welcome to Scorpio Season.
This week the sun enters Scorpio, turning our conscious focus and awareness to the realm of transformation, healing, the deep psyche, the taboo and occult, motives, sex, and power. Welcome to Scorpio Season. Expect intensity, things revealed and unearthed, and transformation.
This is the time of year when the veils between the world are said to be the thinnest, where we honor and receive blessings from the departed and our ancestors. We are at a transition, a crossroads, a sacred gap that is neither one thing nor the other. This is the in-between.
Modern life is very much point A to point B, either-or, this not that. The in-between is both, and neither. It is not that easily defined. Our culture tends to honor the destination rather than the journey. We don't stop to honor the spaces, the gaps, the past, the undoing, the release, the loss, the letting go. They feel uncomfortable. Unproductive. Scary. Unfamiliar. But there is great power here. And that is what this time is about. We cannot have life without death, summer without winter, day without night, action without rest. And each bit of it is sacred. The earth slows down now and we follow her lead to the restorative rest and regeneration only the dark can bring.
As the moon waxes now, it moves toward Friday's first quarter square with the sun, our first choice point of the lunar cycle - a crisis in action - as we reach the halfway point between the new moon and the full moon. This is our check point to make any course corrections with our new moon intentions and actions to stay in alignment.
Then on Sunday, the sun meets up with Mercury, still retrograde in Scorpio. This brings our light of consciousness and Mercury, ruler of the mind and messages, together in Scorpio's deep abyss. This is an aha moment. Something is revealed. This is the point where Mercury finds what it turned back in search of as the sun shines its light on it.
Mercury's journey isn't over just yet though. It will continue backtracking, reentering Libra next week on the 27th, the same day Venus leaves Virgo and enters Libra. After the full moon on the 31st, Mercury will station direct at 25 degrees Libra on 11/3 (U.S. election day) in square to Saturn in Capricorn. Saturn on the high side is supportive foundation and boundaries, but could be showing up as a hard and limiting influence in this case as it is in square aspect, have patience here and keep going.
Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn have been a challenging ride, and we are still on that ride until they get apart from each other and Mercury and Mars station direct. Keep looking for the flow, for what supports and nourishes. Keep looking toward where there is space and constantly move towards that. As things shift things will continue to open in new ways.
We are being taught how to dance in between the beats - to move into the open space and honor the in-between. There is magic there.
