The Scorpio theme is strong these days, Sun recently passed the conjunction with Saturn and the trine with Chiron. Mercury just left Scorpio for wide Sagittarius horizons. We are coming close to Samhain, Halloween, Dia des los Muertos. The veil is getting thin between us and “the other side”.
You can not descend into the other world and stay the same person ever again. You inevitably change.
The full moon on the Scorpio / Taurus axis lights the way into darkness. Human eyes adapt to darkness. There are so many shades of dark. I perceive it as there is a light emerging of the things itself. When turns darkness to blackness? Roni Horn says in Another Water (the river Thames, for example): “Darkness reflects the sun. Blackness reflects nothing.”
I like to recommend an art exhibition in Frankfurt/Main, Germany, that fits perfect into this watery and dark Scorpio time: “Dark Romanticism”. Francisco de Goya, Max Ernst, Eugène Delacroix, William Blake, Johann Heinrich Füssli, Caspar David Friedrich. I visited it recently – all these images of death, dream and darkness still stay with me, rise up and sink down again.
The grand water trine between Saturn in Scorpio, Ceres in Cancer and Neptune / Chiron in Pisces washes away limits to go deep deep down. And the same way I perceive it as very protective. The boundaries are solid.
Many friends I talk to are exhausted and have hardly any energy left. It is time to have some rest, processing all these deep issues coming up, preparing for Neptune going direct in 0°22 Pisces 11.11.2012 and waiting for the Solar Eclipse 13.11.2012 / 22° Scorpio.
It is a dreamy atmosphere, dark, fruitful, it is about food.
And about dreams. (I watched “Blue Velvet” a few days ago and dreamed to meet Jeffrey, later I changed into being Jeffrey. Curiosity, innocence, I really admire Kyle Mc Lachlan!)
Deep and honest talks with close ones. So many things come up to the surface. So many fears. A time to “lean into the sharp edges”. So much potential to bring dreams into reality. Washing away limits of fear. To nourish our souls we need to know what we really want and need.
So many changes to expect. We can allow us a bit extra time to get ready. It is not time, now.
My Saturn in 2°28 cancer is directly affected by this grand trine. In all this chaos, sorrow and change I have had for a long time… having some rest, allowing myself to calm down. I even feel some safety from time to time.
Waiting. Dreaming. Processing.
Fog outside. It went autumn, finally.
Time for regeneration.
A Sunday in bed with books and chocolate.
Calming down, just for some time.
I rest my case.
