Mars is nearly out of Scorpio – where it has been for most of the year. Even when it wasn’t in Scorpio, it was. That’s as in Warrior God Mars moving into the muck-raking sign of Scorpio early in the year set a whole series of events into motion. It was referencing Saturn in Scorpio (2012 to late 2015) AND Pluto in Capricorn. So one way or another we have all done some version of psychological colonic.
I was emailing with my friend (and gifted intuitive) Marcella Kroll about health & self care – she responded to one of my emails with this zinger which is SO NOW that i was all about “fuq please let me share this“. It was in response to me saying that it sounds corny but being better with your self-care totally ups one’s psychic powers – in fact, sometimes i think that what we call – say – B12 or cholesterol probably has a magical name and function also.
Not corny at all! The self care is crucial. Now more than ever we have to in order to keep up. I really believe that we are going through some serious evolution right now as a species. So all these shit storms are showing up to show us what needs to be upgraded. And honestly the sadness for the fleeting friendships and changing scenarios is passing too. I can’t, nor do I have time for people that make me feel like I am hard to love.
I’m here to do my work, not be part of a fucking spiritual fashion show. It’s not always pretty. It gets messy, and sometimes downright disgusting dealing with your shit. But if you are in this work to truly be there for others, then you have to sit in the damn mud while feeling it all, and LOTUS ON! It’s been an absolute eye opener to see who sticks around when shit gets weird. I’m also fucking stoked on the people I have been meeting in the last month. Crucial new minds and real deal folks that want to do the work. It feels good. And peace to the rest. I have no ill will towards them, just love, and freedom to move onward.
Looking forward to Jupiter in Libra….NEXT! HA!
The lotus reference is a la how the lotus looks so serene and beautiful because it sucks its sustenance from the gunk at the bottom of the pond. The more gunk – the smoother and brighter the petals. Concrete over that crap (the defeats, the failings, the pain, the sleaze, the regret, the trauma ghosts, the whatever) and no lotus.
Another metaphor that feels apt for Mars nearing the end of his long trek through Scorpio is the emergence from a journey through a dark forest, stately and ancient but still scary. I feel like the amount of personal demon battling and psychological muck raking most of us (society, arguably, also) have been doing is intense.
