Sun, Mercury, and Venus pass through Scorpio every year and Mars passes through every 2 years. The Moon passes through Scorpio every 27.3 days traveling through this sign for about 2.5 days and there is a Scorpio Full Moon at least once each year further illuminating the Scorpios Mysteries.
Whenever any planet is in Scorpio it is featuring all shamanic themes of Death, Rebirth, Regeneration, Right Use of Will and of course Edgewalking.
The Scorpio Mantra…
I Will, My Will, Be Thy Will.
Edges are important
because they define a limitation
in order to deliver us from it.
When we come to an edge
we come to a frontier
that tells us that we are now about to become more
than we have been before.
As long as one operates in the middle of things,
one can never really know
the nature of the medium in which one moves.
The Time Falling Bodies Take to Light
William Irwin Thompson
This quote from the Right Use of Will Healing and Evolving the Emotional Body Received by Ceanne DeRohan further illustrates this…
The unconditional Love of the Spirit
is understood by many on Earth at present.
There is another energy, though,
that is also part of the Divine Creation,
which has not yet been fully understood – the Divine Will.
The Will expresses as feelings.
The Spirit and the Will are partners in the body
and must find their balance in the Heart.
Any planetary transit through Scorpio invites us to consciously walk the edges of what is dying and what is being birthed with opportunities for willfully (purposefully) creating a new paradigm ecstatically aligned with Divine Love and Divine Will. There is no one way to do this that is better than any other, however the process is more gracefully facilitated when we embrace what is unfolding while releasing any attachments to specific results.
Most of us will experience varying degrees of fear around the edges of what is changing. Although some may try to avoid these new unfamiliar edges the changes are already in motion and new edges – like new frontiers – are emerging. Edges are dividing lines between things or where one thing leaves off and another begins. There are edges between cultures, races, belief systems, paradigms, and people. There are edges to our homes, to our communities, to our differences, and to our choices. Everything has an edge and indeed everyone walks an edge of some kind. So why not choose to explore these edges with openness, curiosity, passion and awareness?
Conscious Edgewalking occurs when we seek out the edges of contemporary beliefs and existing paradigms, choosing to move beyond them, exploring and expanding into new passionately alive territory. Conscious Edgewalking requires willingness to walk the edges of old and new ways, bridging what has been with what is emerging, allowing death to embrace what is ready to die, creating space for new ideas, new ways, and new experiences to birth.
Another aspect of the Scorpio mysteries is connected to manifestation. When we allow ourselves to explore the edges of our known reality with passion and intensity we automatically move into new ecstatic territory alive with great magic and life force. It is this passion that guides us, allowing expressions of grace to permeate our experience. Scorpio’s passionate, intense life force energy has been greatly feared and repressed in recent historical times splitting us off from a full on healthy connection with our emotional bodies. When that happens, then what tends to manifest is depression, anxiety, anger and so on.
The way to make the most of the Scorpio edge is to be willing to feel your feelings in ways that are safe, effective and transformative, as this ultimately leads to new experiences of ecstasy and bliss. A worthy Scorpio manual addressing these issues is the first half of the book Right Use of Will channeled or received by Ceanne DeRohan. This book describes the misunderstanding that caused a split to occur between Will and Spirit, leading many to believe their feelings (Will) were not acceptable. This misunderstanding is what lead to the practice of repressing feelings.
The book points out that, “…the Will of God is not in opposition to the Will of the individual…” When we are healthy our Will is automatically aligned with Divine Will. And the fastest way to heal and evolve the Will is to …
Whenever a planet is traveling through the Scorpio Realm – it is an opportune time to find safe and healthy ways to explore and accept your feelings/will for the purpose of experiencing ecstacy. Finding safe healthy ways to clear your Will of all the emotional trauma it has been holding is often overwhelming, so it might be helpful to find a skilled facilitator.
Any process that provides a safe space for getting in touch with our deeper feelings such as breathwork, body oriented counseling, shamanic journeying, and whole being integration techniques are powerfully supportive during this time.
