Sun Enters Scorpio: Transformation & Relationships

Sun Enters Scorpio: Transformation & Relationships
The Sun enters the dark and mysterious waters of Scorpio on October 22, setting the stage for a yearly psychological shedding -- if not total metamorphosis. Scorpio is a fixed Water sign, and all of our more stubborn emotional patterns tend to become highlighted during this phase (read: possessiveness, jealousy and control issues).

Of course, no one would happily admit such shadow aspects of human nature, yet these little psychological goblins tend to rear their ugly head at this time, regardless of what Sun sign we were actually born under. If we can embrace the green monsters within and get to their insecure roots, we can often uncover tremendous strength and emotional resourcefulness rather than projecting our darker aspects onto others (especially our significant others). Scorpio gives us the courage and impetus to do such dirty work.

It’s perfectly fitting that Halloween always falls under the Scorpio Sun, what with all the ghosts, goblins and dramatic costumes. There are plenty of characters born under the Sun in Scorpio who will happily don the every-day-is-Halloween motto, as evidenced by their sometimes outlandish outfits or their emotional attitude toward life. In any case, there’s a chrysalis that happens during the Sun in Scorpio phase as we are asked to look into our own darkness. Which aspects of our being do we keep secret -- even from ourselves?

Now is the time to summon our emotional courage and delve into all the scary and unknown parts of our inner world so that we can truly transform the darkness to light and start again. A Scorpion can hold its breath for three days, survive intense amounts of radiation that would kill most living creatures, and even survive in a frozen state. But this is just a mere glimpse into the power of the constellation of Scorpio. This can be a time of such tremendous rebirth, if only we are willing to die to the old aspects of self. If it no longer serves your highest, let it go in honor of Scorpio.
