The Sun Moves Into Scorpio- The Catalyst of Transformation, The Underbelly of Depth, The Power to Be and To Be the Power.
On October 23rd, the Sun, which represents: the ego, vitality, and our life force, moves from the airy sign of Libra over to the watery sign of Scorpio. Scorpio, the 8th zodiac sign, deals with: power, sex, hidden realms, shared resources, death/rebirth and transformation. Get ready for the intensity to rise again! We are entering into the land of the forbidden and major unforeseen forces are set to become visible. Hold on as this is going to be a hell of a ride!
The Sun in Scorpio will bring to light the darker forces that are ready to be exposed and transformed. The Sun will join his other planetary friends, Mercury and Venus, who are already swimming in the Scorpion’s deep terrain. Our senses will be acute and ready to plunge to the depths of the unknown. The 8th house, which Scorpio rules is where the darkest of the dark lives and where we must find the strength to be vulnerable and work with another. This house is where we merge with another on every level, yet Scorpio always deals with control and manipulation. During the Sun’s transit in Scorpio, we all will be asked to confront the parts of ourselves that we hide. The irony is we can’t hide from ourselves. Major secrets and repressed energies will come to the surface during this transit. We are being called to the dark side to not dwell there but to face these aspects of ourselves that want to be hidden and expose them with understanding and forgiveness. It is this cathartic release that will allow us to soar and find peace.
Sun in Scorpio natives are the toughest of the tough. These folks die many “deaths” on a regular basis and are always born again, renewed and stronger. No one can plunge to such levels as a Scorpion sun individual. It is the reason that they are so misunderstood and why they have so many issues truly relating to others. They will go where most won’t and aren’t afraid to be straight up and raw with their intentions and power. Scorpio is the only sign that has 3 zodiac symbols to represent their energies. The first is the Scorpion, which will attack with its stinger if threatened or confronted. The second is the lizard, which is where they exhibit their “poker face” of calmness and serene power. The third is the eagle, their final state, which often comes after many battles and hardships and where they rise like the phoenix from the ashes. You can see how brilliant they are inside of transformation. Many Sun in Scorpio’s wrote the book on survival and re-invention.
The Sun in Scorpio is here to have us face our shadow side and transform our pain into strength and awareness. As we enter the land of the unknown, there is nothing to fear. If you are willing to see your darker sides, there is a real opportunity during this transit to experience a beautiful transformation of power and prestige. The veil is very thin. As the Sun continues through the sign, he will meet up with retrograde Mercury, the planet of the mind and communication, also in Scorpio on November 11th. On this day, many truths and secrets will be made known. Hiding or repressing these energies won’t work with Scorpion energy. The only way out is through.The Sun in Scorpio wants us to find the courage to be honest and transparent. This transit is here to bring: our shadow sides to light, ultimate merging of resources and the ability to rise again… more powerful and potent then ever! The Sun will remain in Scorpio until November 22nd. Happy birthday to all the Scorpio’s!
