As living creatures we have not only evolved out of water, our bodies are still at least two-thirds of it. Water, though weak in form and gentle to touch, is also the most effective agent against hardness. Its ability to wash, soothe and nourish is in stark contrast with its brute power, of tidal waves and floods and waterfalls. Covering three quarters of our planet, with seas so deep they are yet to be explored, water maintains its unfathomably mysterious nature. Though you know it so well, many of its properties will completely surprise you. Others are so strange that they still elude scientific understanding.
In astrology we equate water with the emotional realms. We know that water signs are most in touch with the world of feelings – that secret domain where much is often not said, but felt. Of all the water signs however, there is none more in touch with the deepest, most hidden properties of water as the Scorpion. This is why you often find anyone in these waters lurking, deep down in the darkest hidden recesses of the world of feelings.
They say the still waters run deep, so this fixed sign prefers the cool still waters. Whether they themselves are ever still is another matter. A seemingly tireless, an obsessive restlessness to get down to the bottom of somewhere other fear to go. Down there we hope to see the origins of everything – of all life… It is in Scorpio we hope to find the source of all our power, just so we can tweak things, just so that we experience the sacred point where death meets rebirth, and thus create…. not just change, but complete transformation.
It’s time to do the work.
It’s not until you take the courage and strength to go deep down into the heart of the matter, face your biggest drama — that most diabolically unconquerable demon — the one that most defines you in all of your disasters – the one that stands to sabotage your every efforts to take timely and appropriate action – the one that stands between you and the result that you want.
Which demon IS it?
that inability or refusal to accept that something is true or real.
the refusal of something you may have requested or desired, but are unwilling to accept or tolerate
a disappointment that results from the discovery that something is not as good as one believed it to be.
an anticipation that is filled with great apprehension or panic
IS@ Desire to Cease to be?
that interminable horror that this just all has to end and that this is not happening with you taking any part in it whatsover…
It IS time to go inside and seek resurgence. Look at the inner stuff. Be clenched, be intrepidly curious, be fierce with your intent…
Don’t wait for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead.
This time you have to go deeper, so pay attention. Focus on identifying your inner saboteur. Find that demon. Harness that monster. Bring him under control. Then make him work.
Make it work for you.
