Double Scorpio: the Sun and Moon hanging out, holding hands under a dark sky.
Shh. It’s so dark outside and it’s getting colder. How about we settle in around the fireplace…ready for some truths?
Welcome to Scorpio.
Truth: this life is not easy.
Truth: not one person you know has it easy, because of that mysterious chamber called the unconscious mind (Scorpio’s favorite hangout).
Truth: the unconscious mind rules the human condition. If only we could acknowledge that Scorpios believe there are way too many words, and not enough quiet.
What’s not easy is that honestly, everything revolves around your need for contact and intimacy. This is gold in life, and also the source of great pain when we don’t feed the hungry animal who wants to be touched and held.
How willing are you to admit that you operate with a PERSONA which INSISTS THAT you pretend? Can you admit that words are far too many when the simple truth is: you suffer, you long, you are scared, and you miss love? Rarely is any of that ever said until the health crisis, the breakup, or depression and then we (sometimes) have the courage to share the truth.
I ask you under this dark sky as we are sitting around the fire: can you talk about your innards? Are you willing to confess that your tender (Scorpio) heart longs to be wanted, desired and missed? Are you willing to confess that you are a vulnerable creature?
I have learned to embrace my vulnerability. I know how much I need my BFF, my partner, my kids, and the dog. I cry easily and write love letters all year round. I have come to discover in my deep Scorpio self that all that matters is love. If you are sad, lonely, or disconnected—it starts by telling the truth and asking for help.
This is a hard life. We are all in it together. I know how much better I feel after I cuddle up to those I love and admit—with my little girl’s voice—that my unconscious mind, my longing and my vulnerability, deserve to be touched and heard.
The prayer for this new moon:
Allow me the wisdom to touch my tender heart and admit I am human. I long for, need, and miss those I adore—even if I have pretended for far too long that I am self-sufficient. May I know how to share from my depths without pretense to find the miracle of this double Scorpio sky.
Good luck with that, haha. We run away too fast from emotional truths. Try telling your favorite people just how much you love and need them during this dark sky—and let us know how it goes.
How I love me some Scorpio. I even sleep with one, haha.
