What does this mean? To me it means that the opportunities for growth and positive change are increased.
It’s not easy to change. We might see something that needs changing, yet be unable to make the changes due to deeply held belief and ideas. If we can get to the root of the problem, we have a better chance of changing behavior.
A person who hoards or is unable to let go of old things that they no longer use, may be operating from a place of pain from events that occurred during childhood. They may throw things out then suffer extreme anxiety, not knowing why. Or, be totally unable to let go of things until and unless they are forcibly removed.
The core issue may stem from a feeling of abandonment, loss, or trauma. This cause may be so buried that it is unavailable.
It has been my experience that we cannot discover these things using a direct approach. They are ghosts who hide out in the depths and shadows of consciousness. But, if we are meditating, practicing being present or otherwise working on our consciousness, something I call Grace will open those hidden doors deep inside. You will find yourself is a situation where ‘miraculously’ something important will be revealed.
This eclipse cycle in Scorpio is an important time for transformation. Pay attention to how you feel throughout the day. What excites you, what scares the hell out of you. What are you attracted to, what repelled by. I have learned through my years in a Gurdjieff school and studying Sufism, that often, the person you are least attracted to, has a special message for you that relates to these deep hidden ghosts from the past. That’s why you are not attracted to them. Your ego does not like change. It has worked hard constructing an exterior to show the world, even if it is miserable, alone, and broke.
Your encounter with that person may be brief, but it can change your life. “The doorway to your fondest dreams is often through the portal of your darkest fears.” Patricia Sun
This person may be the keeper of this doorway.
Another issue: what does healing look like? Can we ever say we are ‘healed’? How will our lives changed when we are healed? Will we always be a ‘survivor’ of this or that? Or can we move on? Caroline Myss discussed this decades ago in her early books. Will we ever get over it? Should we?
I feel that these things are echoes from past lives that we are set up to work on in this life. Taking lifetimes to unfold, they may take lifetimes to heal. When it happens, it can feel instantaneous. Yet, it may have taken a long time to happen.
Why are you here? Ever thought about that? To get married and reproduce? To get a good job and look forward to a comfortable retirement?
Scorpio is about the womb and the tomb. The time between is short is the scheme of things. How will you occupy your time? In a vegetative state (producing and reproducing)? Or will you use it to move up the spiral of light toward higher consciousness? I’m not saying that the things of the world are not important, just that this is not all there is. If it were, then why are so many people ‘who have it all’ so unhappy? Why does someone like Robin Williams commit suicide if fame and fortune, family and friends were enough? Because it isn’t.
Without a connection to Source nothing works. Our task then is to recognize and deal with whatever stands in our way to that connection. Many traditions say that Creation is a separation from Source and that our mission is to Return. The Return is not merely dying, since we may still be on the wheel of death and rebirth. The Return is Ascension from this plane. It can occur in life. Certain people have accomplished it while still in the body. Sometimes they leave behind guidebooks for Ascension. The sacred books of the many religions are among the guidebooks, but they have to be read from a deeper place than is done in most churches, mosques and synagogues. All the sacred texts manifest on different levels and dimensions. They all have a mundane level, where they provide rules and laws for everyday life. But they all have a deeper, subtle level which is anything but about rules and laws.
Be willing to read the books from a different perspective. See what they say about Light. “Light encodes information,” SA/TMA. Light is the key.
