I am sure many of you have noticed that since Saturn went into Scorpio on October 5, our experience is deepening, and “darker” events are showing up more often in the greater world.
From a more positive standpoint, people are getting more to the core of issues, more intense and passionate. With Saturn now in Scorpio, it will be much more difficult to keep buried what is boiling under the surface. So much of the time, for the sake of civility and peace, we keep from expressing what is really bothering us. Then something triggers an old wound or trauma, someone says something to us that stings us, and we lose control and intensely feel and say that which we previously tried to keep under control.
The Vice Presidential debate this past week exemplifies a Scorpionic intense passionate discussion. The moderator was not stopping the torrent of intensity between the two debaters. The most intense and passionate person was Sun in Scorpio Vice President Biden. He was following his deeper emotions and making faces and interrupting, and dominating much of the experience. This behavior forced everyone concerned to open up more and state their truth. Though certainly rude, it was good in many ways as the often pretentious business of politics got more real. This is Scorpio when it lets down its guard of control. Sex is also a good example of Scorpio intensity.
At its best sex allows people to be totally consumed by passion, and to act whatever way their instincts and emotions are taking them. The good, the bad, and the ugly all come out. Scorpio allows us to be in our primal instincts, without judgement. Jealousy, rage, envy, fear, and all the so-called negative emotions are opened like Pandora’s Box. Previously held secrets are opened to be seen.
Saturn in Scorpio will continue through much of 2015. We are just starting the process of learning to deal with the deeper truths, with the core of issues, with explosive eruptions of previously held-in emotions. So if you want to truly solve an emotional or relationship problem, the best way now is not to work on the outside of the issue, on the symptoms. You will be instead be assisted by the Universe in getting to the root of the problem, to truly dealing with it, to letting out the steam of emotions, and to hopefully clear the air, heal and transform into better patterns of behavior.
After October 22nd the Sun will also be in Scorpio and will conjunct Saturn on October 25. And on November 13 there is a New Moon in Scorpio, many times more powerful than the usual New Moon in Scorpio, as it is a Solar Eclipse also.
So the energies of Scorpio will be getting stronger and stronger. Inhibitions will have little chance of staying that way. Especially in November, much will be erupting from deep in our unconscious, from the mysteries of life, to help us to shift out of “same-old, same-old”, and to transform our experience.
That which is ready to die and be released will be set free, including toxic stuck beliefs and patterns. Some relationships that are currently in trouble, will get to the core of issues and emotions, see the deeper truths, and either end or be reborn again with new life, with new appreciation for one another. Jobs that are in trouble will face the truth that has been avoided, and people will either leave that job or gain a feeling of gratitude for having the work.
Spiritually, people will have the opportunity to dig down into their deeper fears, release them and gain more trust in their deeper soul and the Universe.
In the greater world there will be events that bring us to deeper truths about our country and world. These very intense and powerful events will shake us up and disrupt our sense of security, and help us to awaken and act.
The Presidential Election will happen during this time, the Middle East will intensify(with a spotlight on Syria), the truth of the economy will be more evident, and countries and people in general will tend to show their true colors, and will erupt into “on the edge” showdowns and conflicts.
Transformation of our world out of an old Age and into an Aquarian Age will spike and intensify greatly.
November/December 2012 will be a very important turning point in the transformation of our world, our lives, and our collective and individual consciousnesses.
You should feel some of the momentum forward after the New Moon in Libra this week. That New Moon is Monday October 15 at 8:02 AM EDT.
That New Moon starts a lunar cycle that will include Election Day November 6, when Mercury goes retrograde, and will go all the way into the next New Moon, which is the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on November 13.
Since this New Moon is in peaceful Libra, the full extent of the power and intensity that is coming will be held back. Attempts to keep rational and civil will lead the way. Keeping the status quo will still be a strong intent, though the desires for changing and transforming our experiences will be still powerful though somewhat in abeyance.
The second presidential debate will be this Tuesday October 16. Of course that promises to be a lively and intense event, but relative to what is coming, it will be tame.
The next week after that, when the Sun moves into Scorpio and then makes conjunction with Saturn, will be when we will truly start to feel the Eclipse Season blowing in.
Then the “darkness’ will reveal itself in the light of day, and the power of transformation and change will intensify. On a deeper level, the Universe will be transforming our lives, no matter who is president. If Obama wins, then perhaps the changing of our world will happen somewhat more gracefully. If Romney wins, which I believe will likely happen, then the power of revolutionary and evolutionary change could get much more filled with disruptive and calamitous events.
Remember we are moving to an Aquarian Age, one that promises a more level playing field, a multi-polar world, no more superpowers or countries and peoples considered better or more privileged than anyone else. The power of the world goes to the people, not kings or queens or mega governments or mega corporations or superpower nations.
Both political parties in the USA are part of the same toxic, corrupt system, run by special interests and the Military/Economic complex President Eisenhower warned us would eventually take away our individual liberties.
The eventual transformation of the world will move us beyond the dysfunctional bickering marriage of Democrats and Republicans, who do not allow for the voice of other parties in the debates or in the dialogue for a better and more healthy community. Neither party seems to care about the common good and helping our country and world to be better. They both care more about winning and perpetuating the status quo, which continues with unjust wars and violence, American chauvinism, and poor worldwide economic conditions.
See you next week,
I will be broadcasting some radio shows on blog talk radio on November 10 and November 24. I will also do a new YouTube presentation sometime soon also.
