The Time of Scorpio is at hand…
You stand before the Eighth Portal.
You have come together, holding hands,
But now you face the ultimate Illusion and Promise.
You face the divide that lies between “I and thou”,
That you are separate from one another.
You will have your Salvation by your Faith,
Which is founded upon the Greater Understanding,
That you and I are “One”,
You are an immortal, abiding for a time in this wondrous mortal frame.
There is no form which will last, for every “thing” must pass away.
You have no eternal physical body or even name of you,
For you are Spirit, and at the core of you burns a Spiritual Spark of the Divine.
Your one Imperative, your truest calling, is to grow, to learn…and so become.
You must move in, and through and then beyond any one form.
For each of these embodiments is both a fulfillment,
and your prison too.
Beside you, within you, a Luminous Presence in your journeys,
Inspiring, Guiding and Loving the whole streaming Lives of these forms of you,
There abides Pure Love, there is your Beloved, who is your silver chord to the One,
The One from which all came, and to which all will one day return.
Your Higher Self moves with you through all these Worlds and Lives,
Yet ever-lifting and drawing you closer to an even greater you,
Beyond any life or world, you ascend to ever more subtle forms of Self-Realization.
You must be born into form, and you also must release, again and again.
You celebrate this life, but quake at the portal of the next, which you call death.
You want to live forever, yet your Immortality was already a given.
You will come to realize the Truth,
That you live only in “the Eternal Now”,
That you were, are and will always be in motion,
Through Worlds, and Forms and Lives.
There is no cessation, no stillness that abides.
You have names for your passages, from mystery to mystery,
What you marvel and fear, these Births and Deaths, they are mere doorways,
For you are Spirit, and your path leads ever onward.
You are never alone, and your Lives and Loves are always with you…
They are you.
You have formed one another and your Paths are spun and twinned together.
You are a host of energies/experiences, of countless lives then and now.
From a Star you went forth, with a whole hosts of Lights,
You all went forth together to become this Universe of I and Thou.
From this little Cosmos of your Creation, yes you, and you and you,
All of you will become Stars yourself someday.
For that is your Destiny.
From One into many lives, from a Star to being a host of many Stars and then beyond,
You are here to rise above the great Illusion that is Separation,
You are here to cross the divide between “I and Thou”,
You will come to see and know,
That you Live in the Light of the One.
That you are embraced in the love for one another,
The wondrous reflection of the Love of the One.
You, you are a precious spark of Light Divine,
And you are here to Grow into a Sun.
This is the month of Scorpio, and these Truths about and lessons in your Mortality and Immortality are the core of this sign’s Song of Spirit. Within each and every one of you, some essential part of you is Scorpio, somewhere this Song sings of your Truth. Of your longing to be part of something greater, to belong with and be for one another, to join in Unions of Self-Transcendence and break your Fear of Rejection, the Fear of Loss, the Fear of Death.
Make no mistake, this is a big day for you and for Scorpio too...
Today the Sun Enters Scorpio, and there is a New Moon in Scorpio, and that New Moon is a Solar Eclipse, and Venus Enters Scorpio too! It would be awfully hard to miss the message of the stars with so much being offered to you now.
Whenever a Sign begins with a New Moon, there is a reinforcing emphasis of its message, it is even more sacred and special. The next few Sign transitions will be like this, the Sun changing Signs along with a New Moon, and this series of New Moons will lead to a very special New Moon at end of this year, at the beginning of a new season in Capricorn. That alignment will indeed be accompanied by sacred ceremonies and initiations for those who are ready.
You will feel this transition today, from Air to Water, from Thought to Feeling. The three Water Signs are about “Connectivity”: In Cancer you re-affirm and re-connect to the roots of you, to your Family and Home, to your Cultural and Spiritual Foundations, and from this Centering upon your Origins you can feel that you “Belong” to this flow of Being that is Life-Consciousness-Spirit. In the last Water Sign of Pisces, you open yourself to the boundlessness of Spirit and Creation, feeling-knowing yourself to be an essential part of the Greater Life of Spirit. You Find Joy and Peace in Knowing that you are truly one with the One, and your Faith becomes your Truth, your Destiny fulfilled as an Illumined co-creator of this Creation.
And so here, in Scorpio, you feel that most precious, personal connection, that I and you have joined together, facing one another, letting go of our fears, so that as we release ourselves from the lesser we are able to build upon the greater Values and Love that we share. We turn towards one another and join in sacred unions of self-transcendence which become the very instrument of our self-fulfillment by and through our unconditional love for one another.
I wrote about this particular New Moon Eclipse in my General Forecast:
Solar Partial Eclipse (October 23)
The final Eclipse of the year is a Partial Solar Eclipse at 0 degrees of Scorpio. Here is information about the Eclipse and where it will be visible, which begins off of Kamchatka, Russia and races over to Canada and most of the United States.
On this first day of Scorpio, when you again take up a most awesome task (that you will encounter again and again in your journey upon this Earth), you face the Spiritual Necessity of overcoming the Illusion that is your experience of Separation. Today you now meet this moment with the added emphasis and power brought by the eclipse. A deeper seeding of meaning will be offered to those who have the courage to look beyond appearances and seek for the underlying truth.
Every New Moon is special, and each Solar Eclipse forges an even greater offering of guidance and inspiration for that experience of that Sign. But even more is offered to you today. For with the Sun entering Scorpio and also aligning with an eclipse of the Moon, Venus also partakes in this “Triple Conjunction of Truth”.
As you make your attempts to better join with one another, to lay aside fear and show your strength by your willingness to offer one another a space to share together, as you reveal your character and spiritual grace by replacing your caution, self-doubt and fear of rejection with your openness and vulnerability, Venus here too will come to lend you a hand.
For the entrance of Venus, your Avatar of Love, into Scorpio reminds you that you have nothing to fear but fear. That you are here to Love yourself, and you are here to love one another as yourself too…for how could you not. For who stands before you is someone who long ago, and today and in many lives to come will be one of the ones who made and will make you who you are. You are already made of one another, you are all mixed up together, for ages and ages, and the Illusion that you must wash away is the separation that seems to be between you.
You are founded in Love...
You have forged one another by your many Lives of Loving one another too...
You will become what you will by being Co-Creators of this Creation...
Your Creation, which is held together by the Light that is Spirit,
And you will Know and Feel this Light as Love.
