The sign of Scorpio ushers in the cold and dark part of the year in the northern hemisphere. Coming after the last harvest, people celebrated year’s end and honored their dead in holidays such as Samhain, All Hallow’s Eve and the Day of the Dead. The rising of the dark during this season makes Scorpio the perfect time to honor the fact of death as part of life.

Remember, Winter's snows give rise to fertile Springs. Scorpio is called the sign of death and rebirth. Ancient star maps show a giant scorpion with its tail raised to sting the heel of the hero Ophiuchus or Aesculapius, the great healer, called the Serpent Bearer. Death, healing and rebirth are all part of Scorpio’s cosmic story. This past month had all the intensity Scorpio is known for and those energies swept through people's lives as surely as Typhoon Haiyan swept through the Phillipines.

A Taurus Full Moon is a cure for Scorpio’s death rattles. So on this Full Moon, let go of worries and frustration and let yourself sink into your body so you can refresh your soul. A Full Moon reflects back the light of the Sun. Scorpio’s Sun has been through the ringer. On November 6, the Sun joined Saturn, bringing our conscious will into play regarding our feelings about intimacy, betrayal, power, sex and shared resources.

Mercury turned direct on November 10, bringing our conscious intellect to the matter at hand — the naming and transformation of our feeling life. It is a call for radical Truth about ourselves. What have you learned about yourself during this retrograde? Have you been able to retrieve a part of your Shadow that wants to live again? Have you let go of personal wounds that need to die? If you’ve left behind your old story concerning your secret sorrows, now is the time to stop and rest before you begin your new story. There’s plenty of time to get to work on it.

This is the season to rest. That’s what all our late year celebrations are for. Our harvest is in, we’ve let the old die with the year and now we wait for the new light to be born at Winter Solstice. It is a time to rest and celebrate the fact that we made it through another year! While Scorpio releases the old into death and transforms what has been dark into light, Taurus welcomes in the blossoms of the new life of Spring. So in the depths of outer darkness, a Taurus Full Moon can remind us of the pleasures of life.

Until Next Time Sweet Dreams!
