Sun in Scorpio Exact: October 22 ~ 7:46 p.m. Eastern
The sun moves into Scorpio as the shadows grow longer each day and the nights lengthen. This deeply feeling Water sign knows how to traverse the terrain between shadow and light. This archetype helps us feel, understand, and embrace all parts of life, not just the pretty, light, and shiny parts.
In order to assist us in claiming our wholeness, Scorpio helps us face the shadowy aspects of earthly life, where we experience things that may be muddy or messy, and where we feel fear, frustration, sadness, anger, or hurt. Here, we learn to deal with the times when we are exposed to abandonment, loss, death, grief, depression, and the dark night of the soul. Destruction or release of the old happens hand-in-hand with creation and the bringing forth of a new energy. Only by acknowledging and being willing to let go of an old form can we enter the dark, quiet, gestational period required for our new creations to emerge.
