Ok, double Scorpio — if you don’t mind, I am gonna hitchhike on your energetics. I think we have to speak to the depths lingering in our zeitgeist at this time (Fall of 2022). Here goes…
I just read that for the first time in our recorded history, the Alaskan snow crab has gone extinct. Apparently global warming hits again; the water has warmed and discontinued that species.
I heard that children/teenage suicide has increased beyond any other time in history.
Oh yeah, and there are more sales of Viagra than ever before — apparently men are needing some help.
Those were all Scorpio topics. (One of those three things may or may not be scientifically true. You guess which one is the surprise!)
The point, however, is the dark side — the male side, which has a history of misusing energy — is asking for light.
Let’s use this new moon to speak to the hardships that are in our collective narrative. Words like trauma, anxiety, and depression ran rampant. Democracy is wearing thin. Can we face our shadows and speak to them? Thank you for the invitation, double Scorpio.
What is in the depths of our reality in this very deep time? (Asks the Astrologer who has ample amounts of Scorpio in her chart.)
Scorpio loves to address the shadow, to be naked, and to acknowledge the truth of our inner animal: greed, fear, hunger, passion. This is the part in all of us that has instinctual reactions that override logic. It’s the stuff that can embarrass us: when we orgasm, get violent, or lose our shit.
In this era, our inner animal has good reason to be reactive, angry, depressed and scared. It’s just true. For the first time in our lives we use words like ‘extinction.’
“The planet has experienced five previous mass extinction events, the last one occurring 65.5 million years ago which wiped out the dinosaurs from existence. Experts now believe we’re in the midst of a sixth mass extinction.” (Source: World Wildlife Foundation)
Wait. We should all ask: ‘What do you mean that we are going extinct?’ Do we have to learn how to accept such a truth?
If this is true, this eclipse is asking us to be real, to read, study, prepare, have the hard conversations, and to open your heart and say: the animal in me is scared.
The sooner we reveal our authentic inner truth (our humanness that is filled with caring and hope), this story will be changed. I believe these newsletters and our conversations about Astrology open the door for us to be staring at the dark from the vantage point of the light in our souls, who have faith.
I have faith. I know that this is not surprising to those who watch us, protect us, and try to inform us of alternative ways to upscale this reality.
I am obsessed with Steven Greer’s work on help from the highest realms. In addition to the scientists who know that there are surprises, miracles in the wings are waiting to give us alternatives.
I know we are being held. If there is a function of this eclipse on Tuesday, October 25, 2022, it is to be ‘real,’ to seek faith, and to pray.
Here is the prayer for this new moon:
Let me rest in the dark womb of the one who knows all is well.
Let my nervous system calmly absorb the peaceful state that is rightly mine.
Show my animal self that love always overcomes fear, and light always overcomes dark.
Love is just a thought away.
Ok, this was a heavy newsletter — but I had to share my hope in the middle of the dark sky. That’s what Astrologers do: they find the light, right there in the dark.
