Celebrating The Dark
Stepping into the gate of a new weather season, Libra brings us back to the balance of Light and Dark at the Autumnal Equinox (aka: The Last Quarter Sun of this Annual Cycle). It's time to Celebrate the cycle and embrace the return of the Dark.
The Sun moved from Libra to Scorpio at 9:20 pst on October 23, 2023.
What Is Scorpio All About?
Let's Prep for Scorpio Season:
I'll be creating the Intro Video & sharing the recording. I am not going to offer a live Q&A's instead I am going to ask y'all to submit any questions you have about this Season and I'll answer them in the video. Can't wait to hear what you're curious about!
Scorpio Season is a portal, one which we have been programmed for centuries to resist. It is the gateway to The Dark, The Underground, and the best time for emotional ShadowWeRK.
Prepare for this one to bring forward those opportunities and know that through our WeRK here we can do this together rather than alone. We can do this WeRK knowing that it's been intentional to keep us from doing this WeRK together and doing so is an act of Sweet Disruption.
Our Scorpio Self wants to create deep bonds, not just with other humans but with everything around us. Are you ready to enter The Dark?
The First half of Scorpio Season will give us the gifts and opportunities we need to prepare for this journey Underground. Once The Sun reaches 15º of Scorpio we will enter a new gateway, one commonly known in Pagan cultures as Samhain.
We see many cultures celebrating this portal with festivals and rituals focused on death, the dead, ancestors, and release WeRK. Does your culture have celebrations for this?
Some cultures celebrate this at different times of the year but the interesting thing is that the ones that don't typically celebrate it now actually celebrate it during their autumnal season (see those who live in the Global South and enter their Autumn during Taurus Season).
This is an excellent time to explore these celebrations and acknowledgments of death and endings in other cultures. It's also interesting to ask our selves why the toxic energy of the three-headed hydra would want us to stop doing this.
Why do you think they want to keep us from acknowledging and growing close and comfortable to death and endings?
