Jupiter leaves the land of Libra and enters the realm of Scorpio on October 10th. Jupiter, the largest Planet in the Solar System besides the Sun expands whatever it touches. Jupiter entered Libra last September. In Libra, the focus would have been about balance. Balance and keeping the peace whenever possible are Libra’s aims. Libra doesn’t reach balance easily, for it is always aware of both sides of a situation. Sometimes with knowing both sides and being able to see both perspectives leads one to indecision, the shadow side of Libra. In essence, the past year would have ideally been about compromise and finding an equal playing field in our relationships, pushing to come to an understanding of those in our lives and forge alliances.
Now Jupiter enters the world of the Scorpion. This position is not for the faint of heart, for Scorpio has moved past the pleasantries and façade of Libra to an initiative which desires truth at all costs. Pussyfooting around a topic or agenda is not Scorpio’s forte. Reality no matter how ugly it is best out in the open, not denied, but rather relish in all aspects of life- the good, the bad, the ugly. This is what will make Jupiter in Scorpio happy- embracing the totality of human existence- the dark and the light. Scorpio taps into the unconscious realms. Scorpio knows that life is precious and powerful- for its power animal, the Scorpion, carries venom that can take a life. ‘Sex, birth, death’ are all ruled by Scorpio- the entrance and exit of life.
The primal essence of Scorpio is transformation through awareness of the unconscious. It believes that embracing all aspects of self allows one to ultimately rise, like a Phoenix, and rise out of the ashes. It is a powerful sign to say the least. In intimate affairs, it wants to engage with the other very deeply, to ignite that sense of raw human passion and connection. It is not the act of sex per se, but the deeper engagement of merging two souls. When the armor and shields have been cast aside and the partners are open emotionally and psychologically, trusting and completely vulnerable, Scorpio will feel alive.
Are we willing to do this? Are we willing to be unguarded and transparent? Are we willing to engage in the more uncomfortable conversations in order to be truthful and real? Will we be ready for the truth at all costs? Are we ready to look at our less than pretty parts of ourselves and invite them to the table? Are we willing to let down our protections and be vulnerable? Are we willing to take our power back?
