Happy Birthday All Scorpio Sun People!
As we move into the heart of Autumn in the Northern hemisphere (or Spring in the Southern Hemisphere), the Sun's journey through Scorpio takes us into the depths of self discovery where transformative power resides. Scorpio is a fixed water sign and is co-ruled by the planets Mars and Pluto, which enhance this seasons impassioned, purifying and penetrating energies. While all water signs are associated with emotions, intuition, and sensitivity, Scorpio takes this to the core and is often described as the most enigmatic and intense of all the signs.
Scorpio season is colored by deep emotional currents, passion, and an unrelenting desire to get to the heart of matters. It's a time for shedding old skins, gaining greater understanding of the psyche, confronting fears, obsessions, and insecurities and uncovering hidden truths. During this time, there is an invitation to examine and release anything that no longer serves you, making way for personal growth and rebirth.
Scorpio is a sign with many symbols, with the most well known being the Scorpion. Because this archetype governs the processes of transformation, it is also associated with the Eagle who rises above the Scorpions domaine to get a view of the big picture while not loosing focus on its target. It then is purified in the flames of transformation, where its old self dies, turns to ash and is reborn as the Phoenix. Some associate Scorpio with 7 symbolic stages of evolution beginning with the Spider who becomes the Scorpion, followed by the Lizard, the Serpent, then the Wolf who becomes the Eagle or Dove, ending in the Phoenix. All of this lends to complexity of this time of year.
In the Northern Hemisphere, the Scorpio theme of death, renewal and eventual rebirth can be seen playing out in the natural world as the trees shed colored leaves, animals store food and find shelter for the upcoming winter, birds are completing their migrations and the remaining plant life dies off providing nutrients for the promise of new life to come in the Spring. It’s no wonder this is the season where the dead and spirits of the past are revered. It is also said that this is the time of year when the veils between worlds are thin and most penetrable-which makes it a great time to connect with those who have passed on as well as your innermost self.
