Sun in Scorpio
Sun in Scorpio. Intense, passionate, and living on the edge, our solar life force is now activated by the magnificent water sign Scorpio.
In traditional astrology, Scorpio deals with weighty matters: death and birth, sexuality, secrets and lies, underworld experiences, and Dark Nights of the Soul. Scorpio natives are highly intuitive and attuned to that which is going on under the surface, hearing what is not said and sensing that which is not owned. This ability to perceive what is hidden contributes to the shadow expression of this sign – a tendency to be distrustful of others and suspicious of situations they cannot control. With maturity and wisdom, these folks will learn to channel their lust for life into an expanded relationship with the Divine.
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Scorpio is allied with Bast, the Cat Goddess. In ancient Egypt, the women dedicated to Bast were the Sacred Sexual Priestesses, masters of the tantric arts used as a healing modality to release emotional trauma. The Temple of Bast was also the place that pregnant women went to give birth in a beautiful and sensual chamber, lovingly supported by other women.
Bast uses sensuality to awaken our Holy Longing - the yearning of our soul. During this Scorpio season, call upon Bast and ask her to help you tap into the longing of your soul. Many of us have difficulty moving forward because of fear. Letting go of that which is no longer working is a kind of death and we are programmed to resist death. Allow Bast to awaken your desire for change so that you find your willingness to leap into a new expression of your Soul.
The Sun will move through the emanation of Scorpio/Bast from October 22 until November 21.
