The Sacred Union, the Crucible of Immortality
Now you enter the place of mystery and magic; the holy realm that is known as the “Temple of Alchemy”. It is here that you will find the source of your quickening, the leavening of your spiritual potential through a hierarchy of combinations, collaborations and syntheses. This is the heart and soul of Spirit; this is the Way of the Divine which is made manifest in the sacred dances of Spiritual Union.
In Libra you forge the space of I and Thou, and it is there that you must strive to consciously set the conditions for one another’s experience of one another. There you formed the implied and explicit patterns and conditions between I and Thou, “the third space of We”. This is the true space of your “freedom to be and become”, and it is shaped by your understanding of yourself and of one another. You determine what you seek from and need to give to one another, guided by your reason, and so you form the mutually agreed upon principles and rules, often formed into laws and contracts, that will make possible your mutual self-fulfillment.
But it is here in the “Crucible of Union” that that the real “work of the soul” is done. Here you move beyond the “airy” reasons of Libra into the “watery” realm of feelings held by Scorpio. It is here in the sacred centers that are everywhere and in everything, it is here where the promise of individuation, of your realization of your individuality and the fulfillment of your unique promise is forged through your sacrifices to and for one another.
It is by these sacred acts of self-transcendence, of giving up the lesser parts of yourself in order to bring forth the greater that is within and between you, it is this which makes and moves you into your greater or higher self. It is here in the realm of alchemical transformations where you become for one another the very means of spiritual awakening; it is here where you encounter the mysteries of love and loss, of birth, death and rebirth, and it is here that you experience the intimations and proof of your own immortality too.
Yes, you cannot become truly human without one another; you are made of one another and become what you are by all the many interactions that you have with one another. It is here in Scorpio that you consciously choose to do this: Here you must willingly give up some lesser part of yourself (and so discover some deeper truth, some finer quality of being within you both), as you share, honor and lift one another into a more sublime reality. And this can only happen because you face and overcome your fear of rejection and loss.
You take a risk in reaching out to one another, (but you really have nothing “to lose”), and as long as you remain true to yourself, anchored in your love and centered in your truth, you will find the path together to your greater selves.
Yes, in Scorpio you experience the heights and the depths, the unimaginable joy of piercing beyond the illusion of being alone and separate, and so become more truly one with one another. Yet you will also experience the awful pain of when that inevitably ends, when they leave or are “taken” from you. Here in Scorpio you face the ultimate truths and they leave you speechless, you are struck dumb and without words.
You cannot experience the gift of Love without the agony of loss; you cannot have Joy without pain for they are inseparable. Here you must bow you head and open your heart to that mystery where two become one is made real, and then you must equally be ready, at some point, to say to one another, “fare thee well, until we meet again.”
Yes, it is in Scorpio, (and you have Scorpio some place in your chart), where you will find yourself beyond words, as you encounter the greatest joys and the most agonizing pains. You experience the unimaginable joy of union, of transformation and self-transcendence, the redemption and release from your lesser self. But you equally face the greatest fears and pains, of rejection, of loss of your beloved, and you equally face your own mortality too.
Yes, it is said that Scorpio is the “strongest” sign; It is stronger, because it needs to be.
Yes, you feel this now, you know the truth that makes you tremble…everything and everyone will die, and you ask yourself “what hope can remain after this?” Well, it comes from this…this experience which is “real” is also another illusion. It is not your spirit or soul that is lost, it is just the form that you were in for a very short time. You (and all of creation), are Immortals in mortal matter. This dance of Spirit and your Spirit-Form are eternal; and you will move through form after form, into life after life, meeting one another again and again and again, so that you may smile and laugh and dance and love once more, as you have so many, many times before.
You have nothing to fear; you are an Immortal moving through mortal realms. You are here to be for one another the very living instruments that lift one another to live by the Light and Love that is the “Warp and Weft” of the whole of Creation. What is within you surrounds and sustains you; It is Spirit whose Energy-Form you know as Love. The illusion of your mortal existence is this feeling of separation, and your moving beyond this each time in your Scorpio Unions will ultimately free you from the fear of death and bring you to the promised land of Immortality.
This is the gift and truth of Scorpio.
You have nothing to fear, for you are an Immortal.
You were made by love, and you are here to love.
You are here for one another, because you are all part of one another.
And all you have to do, is let go of your fear,
And Love one another.
