On the Scorpio New Moon, I made an intention to be more truthful with myself, to dive deep and pull out the roots of old conditioning that clouded my ability to be true and authentic. I’m a Leo with Leo rising and the Sun is not too far from the Ascendant – oh, darkness? Piece of cake!
So I can have this child-like attitude that facing my truth is going to be like shining a flashlight on a bed post. It’s only a bed post, for heaven’s sake. I forget about where I need to travel to get to that truth (until it really is just a bed post) – it’s not always a jolly journey (if you know what I mean!). Scorpio laughs at the cavalier Leo – you can’t burn away your demons and dragons without facing some sort of fear. And hence we have the secondary ruler of Scorpio, Pluto, snatching me into the underworld – not entirely against my will — yet with such audacity.
The New Moon is all about planting the seeds that you want to manifest – and you can manifest by intending to go deeper and deeper. What happens when you release during a New Moon – should you ask the release to wait until the Full Moon? Does it mean you are out of sync with the cycles of nature if you aren’t on schedule? What does it mean to be ‘in tune’ and ‘in the flow’?
To be honest, sometimes, I just don’t get it. There is so much misinformation out there on how all things ‘spiritual’ work that it creates this dysfunction between you, your body and the truth. While I’m sitting in my alchemy lab investigating, dissecting, understanding, applying — I come to find a different truth — people are out there manifesting up a storm and living successful lives (really, they’re only telling you about the successes and not the failures)– I’m still trying to figure out how to tie my shoes and what the word ‘manifesting’ really means. You can’t get to the manifesting if you aren’t clear about what you want. Yet, sometimes, manifestations occur with a fleeting thought and a forgetful mind.
Pluto is also about fear and confrontation and power struggles. These are always internal power struggles with self and/or other. For example, I fight with my inner demons. I argue with the darkness and tell it to go away. I dispute my unhelpful thought patterns and do affirmations. Does anything ever resolve itself with arguing? We stay at the same level when we have little understanding —
It is the Leo way to play with one’s demons – because demons aren’t real, right? They’re really mice in disguise. And in the end, I can be the hero for having slayed my demons – and people will cheer me on as pass by in a regal motorcade and crown me as the Queen – oh, wait – that is the Neptune fantasy keeping me from my task at hand.
Pluto will only accept what’s true. You can’t control other people’s perceptions of you no matter how hard you try —
So, Pluto, then is about removing masks and seeing people, yourself and the darkness for who and what they really are.
Wherever Pluto is in your chart and wherever Pluto is transiting in your chart is where you need to be most truthful.
Questions to ask yourself:
Where do you need to be most truthful and what do you need to be most truthful about?
Where do you hold the most fear?
How is this fear controlling your life? What would be the worst thing that would happen and if you avoid it, will it never happen?
Will you always be in fear?
What would it take for you to face your fears?
What would you have to do?
As we continue through the last week of Scorpio — encourage yourself to commit to your intentions – take that extra step – go a little bit further and deeper. Keep yourself in alignment with your whole being – that nagging voice – it may be your intuition speaking to you – or it may be your mind trying to talk you out of something wonderful. Or is it your mind trying to talk you into something not quite right?
Scorpio is the best time for diving deeper into the unknown because what you will find will enrich your life and make you whole again. We can’t know how far we can go until we actually go.
