The Scorpio Season endows us with a courageous heart, to face the “dark side.” It’s a time to stop trying to keep up appearances of always being happy. The Scorpio acknowledge the masks that cover volatile emotions like fear, jealousy, rage, resentment. And that sometimes these overwhelm us like a great wave, and seem to take us over. The Scorpio can discover what’s driving these emotions now. The Scorpio can peek behind the curtain of our own psyche to visit our very own Scoriocity.
Scorpiocity is a truism that what we fear to look as it gains power. The Scorpio might want to avoid his/her own shadow side, to keep the illusion that we’re in control. Now is the time to dance with that darkness, and transmute it! You might use it as the raw material for a story, a painting or a dance. Some cultures have ritual exorcisms that allow full expression of the shadow in our psyches. We look for ways to let it up and out. The ultimate mastery is to turn it into something beautiful, by sharing it as part of the human story.
