Sabian Symbol for 24º Scorpio:
“Crowds stirred by a great message, return home” This degree symbolizes the need to assimilate inspiration into daily practice. — from The Astrology of Personality © 1936 – 1991 Dane Rudhyar
Highlights of the New Moon at 23º Scorpio 17′:
This Scorpio lunation cycle begins with a surge of energy (Mars direct) and high expectations (Sun & Moon semi-sextile Venus and sextile Jupiter & Pluto conjunction). Although a positive outcome is promised, adjustments and compromises must be made. Letting go of perceived wounds is challenging; new avenues of communication must be found (Mercury quincunx Chiron). Fears of debt and social isolation (Sun & Moon and Venus quindicile Uranus plus Venus square Pluto & Jupiter) provokes an almost compulsive drive to rebel in the attempt to satisfy emotional needs, increasing the possibility of making indiscriminate decisions.
Advice for this cycle:
As suggested last cycle, the best way to navigate these chaotic times is to spend as much time as possible communicating with supportive friends and immerse yourself in the arts. The more exposure you have to both, the better you will be able to make informed decisions. Use the potent energy available at the beginning of this cycle to advance your goals by taking care of unfinished business. It’s time to let go of what is no longer working.
Strong emotions can emphasize feelings of insecurity. Engaging in a productive activity that brings beauty to your environment will prove gratifying and provide a sense of stability in moments of anxiety. Stay flexible and ready to adjust to situations that impinge on the expression of your individuality.
You’ll get the most out of this cycle by being conscious of what is going on within. Scorpio correlates to Introspection on the Medicine Wheel. A penetrating look of what you experienced during the Libra cycle will increase your self-knowledge and your ability to stand in your own power.
Question your relationship with others, with money, with your work, with yourself. Additional questions you might explore for personal insight include:
- What is it you would most like to see changed?
- What things can you release?
- When do you feel most fearful?
- How comfortable are you with your sexuality?
- Where and with whom would life be easier if you were to form more intimate connections?
- Do you think you are being manipulating or manipulated and how does that make you feel?
- What action can you take to step into your power?
Affirm: Introspection gives me strength.
