Saturn and Mars will join up in Scorpio this August, pushing us to become conscious of our relationship with power and submission. We will be forced to look at how we unconsciously undermine our own strength through the destructive shadow energies of the psyche.

Saturn and Mars are asking us to confront those shadows of jealousy, envy, possessiveness and fear of loss that possess us at the root. We will delve deeply into how we use our sexual energy or kundalini (or it uses us) through the powerful sadomasochistic continuum lying deep in all of our psyches.

Where are we too hard on ourselves? Give others power over us? Fall into a position of submission out of fear of not being loved?

During this phase, we will have the opportunity to explore the shadows of sexuality, intimacy, attachment and how they are related to the destructive side of the narcissistic ego and our unconscious relationship to death.

What does it mean to be in full possession of your authentic desire? As Mars joins Saturn in Scorpio, we will learn the true meaning of the phrase "self-possession" by unsheathing the sadomasochistic tendencies of our psyches. The fierce feminine has been subjugated for centuries precisely because of its awe-inspiring power.

The joining of Mars and Saturn in Scorpio inspires us to ignite this fire once again, from within. Yet, in order to tap into the infinite creative power of sexuality, first we must peel back the layers of shame born of living on a deeply patriarchal planet in order to reveal the full landscape of the sometimes-overwhelming power of feminine desire -- the kind that can fuel projects, manifest world-changing visions and foster healthy, productive relationships.

Use this potent energy to find your anima, your inner phallus, and wield it without shame. Use the power of Scorpio to tap into your kundalini and experiment with some tantric techniques to nourish your body with pleasure, transforming shame into love.

From the first moment you felt a surge of desire, you have been throttled with an equal or greater amount of shame. Every time we look at our naked and clothed bodies, we negotiate this landscape of humiliation. This dance of shame goes back to Eve and her apple, and Lilith, the one who refused to obey Adam and left the Garden of Eden -- but the one seldom heard about or discussed.

Saturn in Scorpio has asked us to unpack and reshape our sexual history, intimacy in relationships, and early parental patterning, especially as it has informed our sexuality. 

Use this transit to tap into the courage of Mars in his native Scorpio -- freeing yourself to feel angry about what you’ve been denied or denied yourself, the ways in which you’ve been lied to about the true nature of your divine power, and how that has caused any unhealthy sadomasochism in your relationships. In order to repossess this fire within, experiencing and burning through a bit of rage is almost a prerequisite. The Dark Goddess, Kali, is inviting us to dance on the funeral pyre of our false selves and confront our ego-laden lies about love and our divine power.
