The Forge of Creation
Today we enter the realm of Scorpio. For the next 30 days, and forever present and ever active somewhere in your own chart too, we bow our heads to the source of all meanings, to the seed of all truths. Yes, it is in Scorpio, the deepest realm in the Circle of the Living Ones, it is here where we meet the mystery and find revealed the majesty of Creation; it is here, behind one and all, that we stand in the everlasting light that forms the beating heart of Spirit.
In the time and place of Libra, you make yourself ready for this moment of consummation. You form the spaces of your relationships, with your family, friends, colleagues, loved ones, and strangers too. Libra is the vessel, the space that you make where you will meet one another. And it is there that the magic can happen, formed by consideration and love, you shape the vessel of your creation, this space of relationship, guided and formed according to what you offer and what you ask of each other.
But Scorpio is the experience, the process, the magic itself that is the science of Chemistry, the mystery that is Alchemy. Because the source of Creation, the protean force which fuels the stars, and you and me, is the combining, fusing, and joining of one with another. How any monad actually combines with any another, whether that be an atom with an atom, a molecule with a molecule, or a being with a being, ranging all the way up to the greatest hosts of Creation, this is the Forge of Creation, this is Scorpio’s realm.
From the mightiest to the miniscule, the whole of the Cosmos is the story of the One made manifest by all of the greater and lesser ones becoming what and who they are by and through joining with one another, in the mystery of combination, by the magic of Alchemy; the story of the Cosmos is forged in the sacred crucible of Union.
For us humans, with our hearts and minds to guide us, we endeavor to create our unions with understanding, with wisdom and care, with courage and humility. We know that it is here that the “magic” may happen, where through our joining with one another we will let go of that which is lesser within ourselves, and so discover the greater that is within us and between us too. Yes, here in the forge of creation, we know that in order to grow we must sacrifice something in order to make room for the magic of growth to appear.
The only thing we need to overcome, as always, is our fear. What if we reach out to them and they say no; what if we make a sacrifice and our union fails; what if…
In every sign, in every realm of life, there is opportunity and there is danger. We make our way upon the path of awakening by living in faith and turning away from our fear. In Scorpio, the root of our fear, the root of all fears, is met to be mastered. At some point, in every life, we face the irrefutable fact of our journey, that we are “Immortals in mortal frames”, and that all that we are and have will one day be no longer. Yes, the truth that is the root and fountain source of our need to understand, all our spiritual teachings, our religions, our philosophies, and sciences, all of our needing to know comes from this inescapable fact that our existence in this form and in this time will end.
And so here in Scorpio, we face our fear and find our faith. We feel the truth as much if not more than we know it or understand it, that will come later (in Sagittarius). We feel the truth by our very experience of self-transcendence in the forge of Spirit, in the mystery of Union, because we feel the illusion of our material forms as just that, an illusion. We feel the truth and we see it in one another’s eyes, in those precious moments when we join with one another and find ourselves more deeply than ever before through one another. It is then that we see the light, the eternal shining in each other’s eyes, the Light of the One, and we feel it through and through, and so we hold one another and forge our Faith that we are Immortals who are dancing through these mortal realms, and we have absolutely nothing to fear, because, because, we are made of this One, we are made and are remade by our everlasting Love.
So, turn to one another and join in celebration of Scorpio’s time, in that today we have one another and every moment we are here is precious. Let us join hands and lift one another to our greater life and create a more beautiful ray of everlasting light.
And when that time comes, for our paths to bend apart from one another again, let us not say goodbye, let us not weep and mourn, but in gratitude in grace face our parting with glad sadness. Let us feel the truth that stands behind the whole of Creation, made in the forge of Spirit, and lovingly say to one other “fare thee well my dearest one, until we meet again…may our love be as love must, may it be evermore, as we stand together in the light that will not fade away”.
May the Light of Truth, Love and Understanding be with you always.
