“Inside the silence we find truth. We wither and we bloom. We grow into and out of people and relationships and ways of being and entire lives, both lived and unlived. We learn the boundaries and the edges of ourselves” Jeanette LeBlanc
A heads up! Truly, Madly, Deeply
Do you remember the Buddhist phrase:” Wherever you go, there you are”, meaning that you can’t change your insides by changing your outsides? That it doesn’t matter how many new clothes, cars, trips, relationships you distract yourself with, there’s no escape from yourself and your way of being in the world. It might be heaven or it might be hell but it’s all self-created. Well, this week’s astrology brings this understanding to your attention.
On Wednesday, the Sun enters Scorpio right in the heart of the Via Combusta, the degrees between 15 Libra -15 Scorpio. Translated as “The Burning Way”, this is one of the most inaccessible parts of the zodiac, ruled by both Pluto and Mars. The collective human soul is intuitively feeling the debilitation of the lights, noticing the thinning of the veils between worlds. Think about how many cultures connect the last days of October and the beginning of November with celebrating the dead? In America, Halloween; in Latin countries the Dias des Muertos; in Celtic and neo-pagan culture Samhain.
When the Sun and inner personal planets move through Scorpio as they are now, it’s a potent time for truth telling, burning away the dross to create renewal and regeneration-personally and collectively.
