Welcome, Scorpio! Your stinger is showing.
The Cosmic Story in the heavens is in alignment with the reality we're facing here on Earth. As Above So Below has never been more true.
Scorpio is never afraid to get down and dirty, and in this buildup to Election Day, when Uranus, the planet of revolutionary new values, reform and awakening opposes Saturn, the planet of convention, conservative values and the status quo, we're seeing just how low we can go. Before their face-off on Election morning, we'll get to see all manner of muck rise to the top. Hopefully, we'll release it and cleanse the toxins from our collective systems and psyches.
The opposition of Uranus at 19 Pisces and Saturn at 19 Virgo is the first of five oppositions of two of the three planets that were activated during 1965-67. The revolutionary and evolutionary energies of the 60s are up again for more work. As a matter of fact, this opposition is dancing on the same degrees of that original opposition, except in reversed placement (also Pluto is missing from the equation at the moment but it will soon join up with them!). This time around, Uranus in Pisces opens up new doors of perception, while Saturn in Virgo offers us the discipline and responsibility to be of service to the world and to be true to ourselves.
On November 1-2, Neptune resumes it forward motion, calling on us to embrace the Aquarian ideals of freedom and equality and to manifest our ideals in practical reality. Watch your dreams for some answers to the big questions of life.
But before that happens, we're back in Scorpio reality. Most people I know are distressed at the negative ads that are bombarding us from all sides this political season. All the negative emotions that Scorpio hordes inside are out in the open for all the world to see. The worst emotions are vicious, demeaning and unworthy of a democratic nation. We can also see how the powers-that-be (in all times and places) use fear to control the rest of us.
Scorpio says, instead of being the servant of fear, learn to make friends with your fear. Scorpio tells us, face the fact that Fear is part of life. That Death is absolutely part of life. If you make friends with your fear, you break free. That is Scorpio's test and initiation.
