CYCLES OF THE HEAVENS
NOVEMBER - SCORPIO
As the nights lengthen and winter approaches, the Sun enters the sign of Scorpio on the 23rd October and the mythic imagery of the year transforms from the light and rarefied heights of Libra, with its crystalline clarity and detachment of cardinal air, to the emotional depths of Scorpio and the intensity and single-minded focus of fixed water. In Scorpio we are compelled to penetrate below the surface of life and explore the mysteries which enliven our world, yet which remain hidden from casual observation. Such exploration can yield a wisdom and deeper understanding of these mysterious processes of life. The sign of the Scorpion, shielded in its protective carapace and armed with its deadly sting, reveals its function as an emotional warrior, who is capable of venturing down into these profound depths to engage with the forces which exist in the underworld. Scorpio, attuned to instinct and emotion, enables us to travel through the visceral darkness of our inner landscape, guided by gut feeling and sensation. Here, as we pass into the terrain of the emotional and imaginal world, we learn to trust in ourselves and to deploy our inner strength, as we face that which arises in this powerful and hidden place. This is an underworld journey, which, when undertaken with the Scorpion’s attributes of emotional courage and determination, can bring forth a renewal and transformation in life. As we enter deeper now into the dark time of year and the life forces withdraw into the Otherworld, so we too can take this opportunity to journey into the inner world and seek to discover the rich and precious gifts which lie hidden within our own inner life.
