On Tuesday, November 11, the new Moon in Scorpio provided us with an opportunity to take a look at the nature of change. Friday the 13th, has given us a glimpse of how to bring some magic into our lives.
Whenever and wherever Scorpio shows up in our astrological map(chart), is the place where we have a special ability to tap into our deepest feelings and emotions, and get the answers that we need to expand heart and soul awareness.
What's required to tap this well of soul spring energy? The answer is , have the intention and the willingness to release the things we don't need anymore.
Why not choose some situations, experiences, or even a ways of behaving or roles, which don't fit who you are anymore. Scorpio is a symbolic representation of how the Universe offers a way to move us forward emotionally and effortlessly, while re-invigorating our lives.
Of course, this happens during other months, but during these special lunar events(Moon in Scorpio) and during the magic of "Friday the 13th", and during the 30 days of Sun in Scorpio this gives us an extra edge. With the reflective and watery depths of Scorpio, we have an opportunity to embrace things more easily, and receive intuitive guidance and cosmic help.
Some of the words describing mysterious Scorpio are intense, penetrating, hot and cold, icy, erotic, controlling, death, rebirth, transforming, etc. These descriptions are good as far as they go, but words can never describe feelings. Scorpio doesn't render easily to nice neat verbal descriptions. Scorpio says:
- Draw, sketch and /or paint what you're feeling(art journal, do intuitive paint, doodle).
- Give and receive a massage.
- Create some sensual, sexy, erotic time with someone you love(yourself included).
- Walk in nature, by the water, watch and listen to the rumble of a waterfall.
- Do some shamanic drumming; create a ritual of release to let go of what needs to die, so that rebirth and transformation can happen(snake medicine, shed the old skin).
- Create a new altar .
- Give thanks to your ancestors
- Have tea time with your Muse
- You get the idea.
Magic Friday the 13th
Now, let's add another layer of mystery to the Scorpio puzzle. Yes, it is Friday the 13th.
Did you know the calendar use to have 13 lunar months. The number 13 was celebrated in many cultural until the feminine aspect was denigrated, and 13 was cast aside as being "dark" and fearsome because of the association with death(which was and is understood and respected in many cultures.
The current and prevailing attitudes about Death, have more to do with violence, war, and people misunderstanding how to live with joy in their lives.) But in truth the number 13 is a magical gateway. It can give us insight into our own personal transformation.
As I conclude this blog, I must confess that I have always enjoyed Friday the 13th immensely. In fact, I popped out of bed around 6:30 and went for a Scorpio, Friday the 13th walk. Here are a couple of photos of what saw along the way.
Enjoy the Magic.
