Notes on Scorpio
1) Scorpio has duel rulers in Pluto (modern) and Mars (traditional), ruler of Aries as well. There is great passion in both of these planets: Mars for survival, power and victory; Pluto for the erotic (in the ancient Greek sense of the word: the kind of experience that brings two or more people together in such a way that a lasting transformation is created).
2) Scorpio rules sexual intimacy, the wielding of power, dangerous sports, life and death situations, emergency condition, taboo liaisons—anything that requires risk or threatens existence. Anything that brings life into clearer focus.
3) Where we find Scorpio in the horoscope is where we need to experience life in the moment and on the edge. It is where we need to merge our energy with others to create something we could not do on our own. This erotic merging can not transpire until we have severed our umbilical ties with the past. To this end, Scorpio is about the enticement to leave the juvenile ties that keep us dependent so we may form adult-to-adult relationships. Scorpio asks that we leave our familiar ground, be it supportive or destructive, and venture out into the world to re-create ourselves anew.
ARIES: The pioneer in you may want to strike out on your own, but the eclipse is itching for contact, connection, action and not the superficial, metaphorical ‘one night stand’ kind. If you find yourself provoking fights and arguments, rethink your intimate life. Where are you resisting creative engagement with another?
TAURUS: The eclipse in your opposite sign of Scorpio places the emphasis right on you personal, one-to-one relationships. This is about commitment to your social connections, business or otherwise. Are you engaging completely and with your whole heart? Set intentions around living the relationship of your dreams.
GEMINI: Sometimes Gemini can be so busy, so of the mind, that the body becomes a vehicle only, perhaps a neglected one. Use this powerful eclipse to connect with your physicality, set into motion a new health, fitness, exercise routine and discover the meaning of holistic awareness. Mind-body-spirit.
CANCER: You might have gotten into the habit of pleasing others to such a degree that your own personal creative self-expression has suffered, or taken a back seat. If so, you’ll want to make an artistic play-date with yourself. Set intentions around honoring your Muse, engaging in recreation and having Fun!
LEO: Much of your intensity is naturally expressed out in the world, in the public performance domain, but this lunar even pulls you into the depths of your Self. Where you crave intensity is in the roots of your being, private, domestic, introspective. Plumb the depths of your soul, for best results.
VIRGO: The urge for intensity comes out in conversation and those can get heated, passionate, volatile. Power struggles demand resolution and this is the perfect time to remind yourself, and others, where you stand: on your own two feet. Discover the power of your words as a creative force to be reckoned with.
LIBRA: Intentions set around the authentic expression of your core values and sense of self-worth serve you well on this eclipse. Transformation is afoot and it’s reflected in all the ebb and flow of energy – money, emotions, projects, support. Notice what lights your fire. Are you getting enough of that?
SCORPIO: Your personal new moon, the eclipse brings any power issue home to roost. You meet contrast face on, warrior stance, ready to engage. Remember, it’s intense connection you want. Check in to how you’re attracting it. Creatively? Destructively? You decide how this goes.
SAGITTARIUS: As much as you like a crowd, this eclipse is about retreat into the realms of the unconscious, a journey of dreams and inner horizons. Set intentions around self-reflection via meditation, service to others less fortunate, connection with all life. Risk something to make a difference.
CAPRICORN: Your leadership capability is longing for challenge, growth and the testing of metal. Are you utilizing your talents to the max? Engage with the ‘group’, lead the way, push past fears. The realm of one-to-many connection calls. Own your power and set your intentions there.
AQUARIUS: Whatever challenges and potent engagements the solar eclipse brings, they won’t be secret. It’s all happening in the public eye where you are recognized, talked about, reviewed. Put the focus on your social connections, career and mission in life. Redefinition is in order. Think big!
PISCES: The solar eclipse in your house of new horizons coincides with an intense desire to explore the unknown. You want to expand and are willing to take risks, engage your power, and try new things to do so. Set intentions to make your life bigger, more meaningful, more aware! Ride this wave!
