Scorpio season is known as the “scariest” if not most sensitive and emotionally charged time of year. It rules the Tarot card Death, which symbolizes closure, irrevocable change and transformation, sometimes actual physical death.

Death is a certain point or phase that has been reached on the Fool’s journey of self-discovery that is represented by both Tarot cards and the Zodiac. He or she suddenly experiences a mysterious emptiness. There may be overwhelming feelings of sadness for known or unknown reasons. Within view is a skeleton on a white horse, and a rising sun in the distance. This figure of death is a messenger of what has been, what is and what is yet to come. Steps cannot be skipped. Grief must be processed before moving on. All that is certain is that something new will eventually be born out of the old.

                                     Death

Death can mean so many things and there is a reason why death often causes people to think more of life itself. As people brush close to death or experience the loss of something or someone they held dear they may reach deeper in their heart or mind for meaning. When there is loss there is gain – as the saying goes when one door another one opens. There is no birth without death or death without birth. They are interlinked. For this reason Scorpio is associated with both death and sex. Sex is what brings forth new life. 

In any case, the end of a specific phase of life has been reached and must be acknowledged. Ancient ones honored such endings with rites of passage. It can be helpful in this modern day to recreate rituals that help us to psychologically and physically make the shift from one way of life to another, weather the shift relates to age, relationships, livelihood or other circumstances. My own shift is recently having relocated from America to the Netherlands. Even if this doesn’t become my permanent home, it represents the end of a chapter of life, in no uncertain terms.

Flower Essences to Support Radical Change

There are several flower essences that can help to emotionally, mentally, and spiritually make life altering shifts and to cope with deep loss and even death itself. These are just a few that may be useful during this time.

  • Angel’s Trumpet – This is a flower essence that assists making conscious shifts between the worlds. It can be of support during major life transitions. It can also be a source of comfort during the time of death.
  • Borage – Borage essence brings courage and joy to the heart. It may be especially helpful when there is impending death of a pet or loved one, or even immediately after the loss has occurred. It may serve as an emotional balm, gently softening the harsh stab of loss and grief.
  • Walnut – the Bach flower remedy that is most often taken to promote mental stability right before, during and after home or work relocations, divorce and break-ups, and the death of loved ones.

Scorpio Transits

The Sun enters Scorpio on October 23rd with a Full Moon in its opposite sign Taurus to follow on the 24th. Adding to the intensity of this year’s Scorpio season are the transits of a Retrograde Venus and Jupiter’s final degrees in this sign. These are further heightened now by Mercury also in Scorpio, soon to enter a Retrograde pre-shadow phase (Retrograde from November 17th until December 6th) in which it will move into Sagittarius and later back into Scorpio.

Venus Retrograde in Scorpio is dredging up many buried emotions, revealing the hidden motives or inner workings of people and things while causing tremendous introspection and reevaluation within the contexts of close interpersonal relationships. This is an incredibly heart wrenching time for some. Difficulties may not necessarily lie with significant others but the theme of revisiting personal values is likely to be present in partnerships. Issues around trust could spring up with just about anyone for any reason. Another area of great concern or focus could revolve around finances.

Jupiter has been in Scorpio since October 10th of 2017 and will complete this transit by November 8th. For the past twelve months many of us have been provided with ample space and experiences that have supported us in truly recognizing what’s working and not working in our lives. The whos and hows of deep betrayal both on micro and macro levels have become painfully obvious. At the same time we’ve been offered some amazing tools, resources, and information to make corrections and upgrades. Jupiter at the tail end of this trek through Scorpio indicates there is one last piece of the old life yet to leave behind before we can take bold actions moving forward. It may be the last piece but it’s not the least important. It may actually be the most huge and troublesome thing we missed earlier even though it was right in front of us the whole time. This awkward thing, whether real or symbolic, is so old that we’ve become quite accustomed to lugging it around. It’s time to ditch that shit.

Every time Mercury appears to be moving in reverse there are many aspects of life that seem to be also. There is often this random stream of chaos: a dish cracks, a computer crashes, a tire goes flat, someone thought you said dumbass when you said alas, a new pair of pants don’t fit, and so on and on. It’s time to slow down – just a wee bit – and do a little bit of review.

The house that Mercury is transiting in your own birth chart and any planets being “aspected” will say more about how Mercury Retrograde is affecting you specifically.

With Mercury Retrograde in Virgo from August 30th until September 21st there is a focus on improving aspects of what we have already been building upon, healing, or manifesting. It is also of great assistance in releasing old items, beliefs, or toxins.

Buried emotions might rise to the surface causing depression or a flood of thoughts and worries could make it difficult to fall asleep at night. Here are three Bach Flower Essences that might be particularly helpful during the next few weeks while Mercury is Retrograde in Virgo.

Crab Apple

This is the flower to help quell an obsessive concern for imperfections and impurities. Nitpicking and excessive criticism so often experienced when Virgo is stressed in some way can be eased with this essence. The desire to be perfect or do a perfect job at something can erode one’s confidence in the long run. When one feels they are not good enough, or they are embarrassed because of a blemish, or experiencing germophobia, Crab Apple helps gain a healthier perspective and fosters self-acceptance. Psychosomatic illness and certain allergies often develop in those who loathe their bodies or appearance in some way. Crab Apple is a great essence for those who feel that the physical body is unclean no matter how much they bathe. This includes a religious shame of sexuality. This flower essence can energetically enhance many types of detoxification programs and diets, including fasting. When there are serious questions about what is pure, moral and “good”, Crab Apple can facilitate clarity.

Pine

The essence of Pine is indicated for use when there is an inability to forgive oneself or to accept one’s human nature. Although regret may sometimes be useful to a certain degree it can easily become so exaggerated than one feels a lack of motivation to better themselves or even get out of bed in the morning. It can turn into self-deprecation, which does not help anyone. We all make mistakes! That’s part of life on the Earth plane. Pine addresses the kind of shame that makes it very difficult to make any progress. If such shame is an ongoing or crippling issue for someone it may work very well together with Crab Apple to restore ones sense of self worth and original innocence. Pine is a tree that represents both purity and equanimity. Its appearance, fragrance and energetic imprint can help us to become more objective about our shortcomings and to understand how we may better ourselves with a compassionate awareness instead of judgment and the burden of guilt.

White Chestnut

White Chestnut is the flower essence for the mind that never quits. It just gets more lit the later it gets at night. There are as many reasons for mental agitation as there are personalities. Most will agree that having an overactive mind is unpleasant and exhausting. One could be concerned with the completion of a project that requires a lot of mental energy, thus making it difficult to wind down at the end of a very stimulating day. Another person could fear losing their job, health or relationship which causes them to feel that they are constantly living on the edge with their minds replaying various scenarios of the worst that could happen. The events of the day, week, or month could be repeatedly analyzed and lead to extreme headaches and insomnia. This type of nervous energy can also wreak havoc on the digestive system and immunity. White Chestnut helps to reroute congested mental energy from the higher chakras to the rest of the body or areas where it might be needed. When there is more clarity and calmness within the mind, the voice of the Inner Self can more easily be heard and heeded.

Mars has appeared super bright in the night sky this month in its growing closest approach to Earth today, May 30th. In the system of Human Design, Mars reentered the 14th Gate on May 24th for the 2nd time this year since late February up until the Solar Eclipse on March 8th. It will be transiting the Gate of Possession in Great Measure until June 15th. Gate 14 is also associated with Power Skills – particularly how we utilize them to acquire wealth and things that bring us satisfaction and success in life. With Mars Retrograde until June 29th energies are being drawn inward instead of experienced in obviously empowering ways. We get a third go with this transit from July 24th until the New Moon of August 2nd.

“The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials” – or so the Chinese proverb goes…

Right now it may be difficult for a lot of folks to see the sparkle coming through their friction and trials. The themes brought up by Mars in Scorpio’s trine to Chiron in Pisces in early February will be revisited and integrated in deeper ways throughout June and July. Deeply buried pain, emotions, and longings must find outlets for expression and release. Those troublesome issues or feelings that are swept under the rug or suppressed will only intensify agonies, whether self-inflicted or caused by outside forces. Some may be facing ancestral karmic entanglements, while others struggle with finances and getting their personal needs met. Maybe you’re one of those lucky souls doing just fine on the earth plane at this time. Almost everybody will be getting deeper in touch with their emotional selves in some way.

With strength, determination, and willpower it’s time to make some major life changes that reflect the our truest desires and especially our truest nature’s – not the artificial, watered-down, subdued, victimized, cruel, plastic, and unreal versions of ourselves that we’ve been taught to identify with. When we allow our brilliance to shine we find greater fulfillment in our existence and become of greater benefit to those around us. Also, in the state of unencumbered radiance we tend to attract the funds and resources we need with ease.

phoenix-rising

With Mars Retrograde in Scorpio, we are called into the depths of the Underworld of our own psyches for review. Just as the shaman gathers lost fragments of soul that have been scattered aimlessly into the cosmos due to shock and trauma, we have the abilities to self-heal and reclaim our lost power. Sleep patterns, circadian rhythms, and energy levels in general may be off for many right now, and one of the flower essences that can be of tremendous assistance of this is Opium Poppy. You can get this through Alaskan Flower essences or Power of Flowers.

Going through this intense crisis in consciousness leading to completions from this and multiple past lives we will collectively be like the Phoenix rising from the ashes.
