Sun enters Scorpio


Pele by Sandra Stanton

Get ready for a shift in energy as the Sun moves from Libra to Scorpio at 8:35 am on Sunday October 23rd. From the relationship oriented Libra, we shift to the intense, passionate culmination of what relationships have to offer, for good or bad.

Each zodiac sign is ruled by a planet which colors the qualities of that sign. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, god of the Underworld. Scorpio wants to know what lies deep within the shadows of your psyche, the secrets in your heart, and the longings of your body. Because it is through these truths that real change occurs, even if it stings. It takes a powerful and clear will to direct the emotional force of Scorpio so that it  brings a positive and rejuvenating  transformation, not destruction.

This image of Pele, the Hawaiian Volcano Goddess signifies much of what I think about Scorpio. She lives deep in the mountains, her energy is the watery lava, powerful, hot, turbulent, increasing in tension, building in force. This force can be used for good, as it is in Iceland where the volcanic heat furnishes warmth for homes and hot tubs. Or Scorpio can hold onto its tension until it blows and everything around it is destroyed, as in Mt. St. Helena. But even then, new life is coming out of those ashes. This leads us to another of Scorpio’s  symbols, the Phoenix Bird, who burns to death in its own nest, only to be reborn from its ashes.

When the Sun enters Scorpio on Sunday we will have four planets in Scorpio including Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. I’ll write more about this on my Changing Sky and Blog section of my website
