First level, the Scorpion itself….clinging to the earth flats, hungering to release its poison weapon that lies within its prehistoric tail. Seeking and searching out that orgasmic release, if not from some unsuspecting victim, then it goes for its own body. It is the most primitive and destructive expression of Scorpio. It does seem to be that sometimes the vulnerability of being alive and embodied and being encrypted with the need to seek out and understand the wisdom and responsibility of being alive has not yet become a conscious part of the Scorpion’s evolutionary journey. Perhaps they want to destruct or be self destructive so as to incarnate next as a Sagittarius?!?! Some Souls or perhaps some moments, for in fact we are reflecting upon it here in terms of the brief, usually no more than 3 day passing, of the Full Moon in Scorpio, so perhaps there is an indication that aborting some, not such great idea’d plan or project is at hand. Then as those of us who believe that the Soul is Eternal, can then understand that this destructive Scorpion like behavior is an attempt to be reborn, only to return in order to try again. Such is the painfully seductive journey of the Scorpio Scorpion.
Second level, the Eagle, mighty creature of power and awesome beauty as with one flap of its wings, we watch in spellbound awe as it moves through time and space. I believe that the wisdom and teaching of the symbol of this splendid and very real creature is to rise above troubles, fears, frustrations & morbid gloom/ doom compulsive rumination of delusional ideations. Yet to just allow yourself to take a deep breath in and a nice deep exhale out, slowly you are becoming free yourself of whatever troubling entangling web you may find yourself in, suddenly experiencing yourself rising above it all. Such as the Eagle does with the flapping of its exhilaratingly powerfully expansive wings. Our breath becomes our wings.
Rising above it and flying forward using all manner of awareness, knowledge and understanding from within the energy of the truth seeking Scorpio. This is then what compels us to uncover stunning life affirming ideas with which to renew ourselves, along with rebirthing ourselves forward. Moving forward towards a calm reassurance which is the encouraging inspiring inner knowledge that we are vitally, vibrant, dynamic and awake. And it is so very good to be.
The Third and final level is The Phoenix, a mythological bird embodying the wisdom of rejuvenation, for as the myth indicates that when this fascinating and mysteriously immortal creature senses its approaching death it’s inner life force flares up and bursts into a blazing fire. Then arising out of its own ashes, it emerges. Reborn, renewed and very much alive.
And so when the Moon is Full in Scorpio, I know it can feel and seem to bring on rather intense experiences. Remember that it is a time passing which fosters a sorting through and clearing out. Be like the Phoenix and learn to rise above it. Let yourself behold a birds eye view of where to from here. And as the mysterious Phoenix does, light the fire of your creativity and intuition so as to re-emerge reborn, renewed and very much alive.
Onward & upward we keep on……
