Saturn in Scorpio: Death and Entrances
On almost the incendiary eve
Of several near deaths,
When one at the great least of your best loved
And always known must leave….
Saturn in Scorpio sets the stage for serious psychological shedding – if not total metamorphosis. What does it feel like to tear it all down and start from scratch? What truly sustains us when nothing else externally sustains us? As Jung asked in his darkest night of the soul. This is the perfect question for the collective at this most intense and uncertain juncture.
Saturn asks us to get to the bone level of our fears, insecurities and inadequacies in order to build strength and cultivate mastery. While in Scorpio, we are being asked to look into the darkest chasms, the innermost recesses of our psyches. What legacies, skeletons and most archaic psychological patterns lurk in our own personal and collective psychic underground?
Of course, no one would happily admit such shadow aspects of human nature, yet it is precisely such shadow work that will reveal our beautiful depths and emotional authenticity. It is time to dance in the beautiful and sacred darkness of the divine feminine.
Now is the time to summon our emotional courage and delve into all the scary and unknown parts of our inner world so that we can truly transform the darkness to light and start again. A Scorpion can hold its breath for three days, survive intense amounts of radiation that would kill most living creatures, and even survive in a frozen state. But this is just a mere glimpse into the power of the constellation of Scorpio. This can be a time of such tremendous rebirth, if only we are willing to die to the old aspects of self. If it no longer serves your highest, let go, let go, let go. Finally, we will explore this power of total metamorphosis through the lens of the 12 ascendants.
