Today Jupiter and Venus meet up in Scorpio, penetrating the vibe of this week with thoughts of intimacy, depth, expansiveness, and yes....penetration of the literal or proverbial sense.
Scorpio is the sign of sacred transcendent sexuality and expression, the taboo, the occult, the deep psyche, the shadow, the Underworld, death, rebirth, alchemy, and dark magic as well as joint finances, taxes, loans, inheritances and legacies.
Scorpio get's off on such serious topics and reminds us of the parts of ourselves that just KNOW what we desire, what we want. We may not have words for it, but we feel it in those lower sacral energy centers swirling about tugging on the flesh there, intoxicating us with aroused sensation on what direction to move it. Scorpio reminds of how we DO know what we want underneath all the bullshit we've got layered on.
Scorpio reminds us of the Power of Knowing our Inner Desires Intimately.
This is the last full official week of the Season of the Witch (although it's really a year long exploration with Jupiter here), and the lessons are coming in relentlessly this week.
You'll hear many astrologers proclaim this day (Nov 13th) as the "luckiest" day for love because Jupiter and Venus together is like a smorgasbord of beauty, creativity, joy, pleasure and indulgence. And this may be so for some of us, but Scorpio isn't exactly the light, fluffy, all pink everything type. Scorpio will be more demanding of us today, and likely this week as we lead up into the New Moon in Scorpio on Saturday.
Scorpio reminds us to go deeper with Jupiter and Venus. There is another force sailing the ship here and it's the desires we've kept under lock and key. You may not be cognizant of this inner compass (yet) but she is there, with a string tied to the sacral chakra...directing us where to go.
Shakira was right..."Hips Don't Lie". But this is not a time to act recklessly, to fuck everything in sight, or to get caught up in a romance that depletes your power, your force. This is not just about being "sexy".
No, this day is ushering in a reclaiming of sexual creative force that has been in an energetic lull. This is reminding us that we've been programmed to view sex in certain ways only. To want it, but to feel bad about it. To think of it one dimensionally, but to complicate it with media, dating rules, and shaming.
Sexual energy has been endlessly buried beneath bullshit for far too long, it's been contorted, it's been energetically raped just as there have been physical rapes pervading in the shadows. And now you're seeing the veils drop publicly, especially since Jupiter entered Scorpio just a month ago. No more hiding the deviant and predatory behavior of the Harvey Weinstein's and the Kevin Spacey's. None of us can hide from this, Scorpio will find us either way.
And that is the magnetizing mystery of Scorpio; she incarnates as the perverse, will try to hide out in the shadows, undercover and yet she always finds herself for she is the forever tempted investigator that enjoys the tease she naturally alchemizes. It's like the Ouroboros, the serpent that eats it's own tail in a never ending cycle of creation and destruction, and hide and seek.
Jupiter & Venus in Scorpio will illuminate the week with the mysteries far and wide, shallow and deep. It's as if they showed up in the Underworld like it was a fabulous costume party and are not stunned by what they see, but endlessly intrigued. It's a masquerade ball in a gigantic mansion filled with nooks and crannies to freely explore and indulge in. They are not fearful, but know that this will not only be a night of fun, but also one where they learn deeply lessons they do not yet understand but know are waiting for them and so they allow their arousal to guide them with discernment.
This is the ideal situation anyone, for both Venus and Jupiter tend to see the pleasure in any pain. And Scorpio can bring that doesn't of stinging medicine for-literally-ever, in all the forms.
This is the week to be honest about the nature of your desire for intimacy. If you want passionate union within your relationships, take the risk and set the ambiance to conjure that magic. You can do this alone or with another. This is the time to claim and embody the longing from the sacred sacral space that may have been ignored.
Society is starting to know better, finally. We are starting to realize the need to become intimate with what sexual energy means to us. That it is something that has been used and abused and it will stand no longer. It's time for all sexual orientations to reclaim this part of themselves. And I feel this Jupiter and Venus day will be a peak into what is possible when we release shame and guilt from these off hidden areas of life. You need not show everything off to the world for this to become more real to you, you just need to be willing to show up and walk deeper with this energy.
This week I encourage you to do what you need to do to arouse and wake up your sensations of desire. Desire is not a dirty thing, it's a longing we have..that will often demand our attention in a myriad of ways until we give it some satisfaction of expression.
It's the oppression of our honest desires that often leads to all the trouble.
It must be said: no, this is not about the justification of violence, assault, or hideous behavior that creates harm unto others.
Desire need not be of physical sexual interaction only, we desire many things.
When I speak of Desire, I'm also speaking to Arousal which is defined "to stir to action, or strong response" and "to awaken, to wake up" . So the sensation of arousal in the body, that tingly...oooooo...yes that...the awakening in the body....the flush across the skin when we see or hear or experience something we want..for that thing we want feels like a reflection of whom we actually are underneath it all, that sometimes fleeting moment of knowing we have fully met ourselves...this is really what Desire is.
So this week, let your Arousal be your compass to the world.
Witness and spy upon what Turns Your Soul On and has you coming into contact with that Powerful Inner Witch you inherently are. The one that has been through Hell and back, several times. And is more wicked and wonderful each time.
