"There is no passion to be found playing small -- in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living."

When the goddess of love and beauty meets up with the cosmic taskmaster in the dark waters of Scorpio on September 18, our patience and strength pay off. We're being summoned to commit to our passion in a way that is reflected by the amount of time devoted to that which we love most. We are being given the opportunity to wed time and resources spent with what we love most. Why should the two be separate?

On a darker note, this merger between Venus and Saturn in Scorpio could also be bringing up deep wounds embedded at the karmic bone level of where we have felt unwanted. There's often a huge abandonment complex revealed when these two planets lock arms in Scorpio. Can we give ourselves permission to reclaim our passion by not wasting time or energy on anything that takes us away from what we desire most? How do we deprive ourselves of our own needs like a stingy and cold parent? It's time to heal these wounds and ask what could regenerate our creativity and life-force in a non-destructive way.

Scorpio demands all-or-nothing commitment, and there's always a death-rebirth, shedding process involved in the metamorphosis. In order to rise up to our greatest potential, much has to be left behind. This has been the lesson of 2013 in general, and is now the one being brought down to a daily in-your-face confrontation. Are you ready to commit to your own depths, refusing to settle for a life less than the one you are capable of living?
