Crossing the threshold into Scorpio and the autumnal mysteries that take us inside, underneath and in-between things.
‘I desire’, Scorpio’s phrase, brings us into the depths. To know and articulate your desire you have to feel into things, explore, spelunk. This is a time for penetrating surfaces, getting to the bottom of things, secrets, mysteries, the intimacy of turning inward. As if from the fearless heart of Scorpio come these words of Rumi’s:
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from the beyond.
This is also a time of year when we turn to our ancestors whose legacies are in our bones and need to be honored. Celebrating our connection to the underworld in all hallows eve, samhain, dia de los muertos…
To get us into the flow of Scorpio, I’ve curated a playlist of some ambient and world fusion beats. Slow rhythms and deeper resonances to help mark this threshold crossing. Invite the darkening of the light.
