Your Guide to Planetary Energies for
October 22 to 28, 2012

been in Scorpio only a short time, but we're already getting a sense of
what issues and themes this two-year journey will entail. Just as
Saturn in Libra held us accountable for the condition and status of
partnerships, Saturn in Scorpio requires us to take responsibility for
our own deeper motivations, especially the fear-based ones that we often
hide or mask with bravado.

Since Saturn entered Scorpio on October 5,
we've already experienced large or small tests of our personal power,
our ability to stand our ground under the pressure of manipulation from
others. We're also testing our own need to be in control, and
considering how to step beyond the fears that keep us repeating patterns
of victimization and intimidation.

challenges us to manage what we might call our "negative" emotions,
those powerful and often instinctual responses we have when we feel
unable to control life or other people.

We all feel anger, fear, resentment, even
suspicions and jealousy at times, and yet we often don't know what to do
with those intense feelings when they occur. If we act on them, we
usually hurt others and then feel bad about ourselves. But if we don't
express or release the darker emotions in some way, we end up hurting
ourselves and undermining intimacy in our relationships. It's a complex
problem, without a simple "one size fits all" answer.

another Scorpio theme: Complexity. By its very nature and core
motivations, Scorpio is complicated. It wants to be in control, but it
also longs to be intimate, which requires vulnerability. As a reflection
of that inner conflict,
Scorpio often
deals with things (especially other people) that feel uncontrolled and
uncontrollable, but that also inspire passionate emotions and chemical

One of our challenges while Saturn is in
Scorpio may "simply" be to figure out how to manage the complexities and
complications of life and our emotional responses to it.
by the time we're done with this Saturn transit (which will be mostly
wrapped up by December 2014), we'll have figured out better how to
utilize the immense power that lies behind our emotions, and to direct
that power as a force for positive change.

all emphasized this week. The Sun enters the sign on Monday, and then
aligns with Saturn on Thursday -- the same day that Mercury aligns with
the North Node, also in Scorpio.

For those who have
planets or points in your natal chart in early degrees of the fixed
signs (between 0 and 4 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius),
this may be a pivotal week, where you are challenged to master some of
the lessons we've discussed.

For everyone, here is a list of traits (from Jan Spiller's wonderful book Astrology for the Soul) that will help us move into the positive expression of the North Node in Scorpio:

  • Self-discipline
  • Choosing constructive change
  • Releasing whatever causes stagnation and low energy, including nonuseful possessions
  • Enjoying things (including people) without needing to own them
  • Accepting support from others, sharing power, partnering

as we navigate the energies of this week, to remember the animal
symbols associated with Scorpio. True to its complex nature, Scorpio is
the only sign that has two animal symbols -- and even a third (or
more) that are also sometimes used.

The animal traditionally associated with
Scorpio is, of course, the Scorpion. These animals look fairly
intimidating, they have a hard shell, they can sting, and some even have
poisonous venom. They are predators and they are tough. This
description corresponds with the lower-vibrational traits of Scorpio.

Which means we must look to the second animal symbol for our guidance when dealing with Scorpio lessons. The
next most-commonly used mascot for Scorpio is the Eagle. Eagle
represents the ability of Scorpio to see clearly and with great insight,
and to utilize spiritual power (instead of emotional, mental, or
physical manipulation).

ONE OF MY FAVORITE resources for understanding animal symbology is Ted Andrews' book Animal Speak -- and here's what he writes about what Eagle requires of us:

  • Involvement with creativity.
  • A willingness to experience extremes in a controlled condition and thus facilitate the alchemical process within your life.
  • A willingness to use your passions to purify
    (flying into the sun) and to use your abilities, even if it means being
    scorched a little.

  • A willingness to seek out the true emotional
    aspects of oneself and immerse yourself within them, and by doing so
    rediscover the lost child and awaken a higher sense of purity, passion,
    creativity, healing, and spirituality.

Each one of the items on this list expresses
the higher manifestation of Scorpio's innate characteristics. They also
point us toward the third Scorpio animal totem -- the Phoenix.

As we work with these strong Scorpio
energies, we will emulate the Phoenix, embracing a purification process
as a vital step in our evolution. By allowing the emotions and
negativity of the past to be burned away, we, like the Phoenix, can then
rise from the ashes, renewed and reborn.
