Beloved Badass-Butterfly-in-Training, how are you? Have you been getting your booty whipped by the Universe?
Forgive me as I say this… But I hope so. Because it is in the booty whipping that the Universe is priming you for success. And not just a lukewarm, mediocre success. The Universe is priming you to be a kick-ass, top of the line champion of champions. A true Badass Butterfly. Right now, Precious One, your Greatest Potential is being offered to you on a silver platter… a silver platter that is being protected by a big, badass scorpion.
Hehehehe! Happy New Moon in Scorpio! The New Moon rises in Scorpio on November 7th at 5:01pm. Rejoice! Because it’s time to take back your life from your ego.
If you can feel the booty whipping, you’ll note that every time you arrogantly reach for your Highest Potential you find yourself getting stung. You rack your mind and keep trying different approaches, but each time that long and lithe scorpion tail reaches out and thwacks you back a step or two. Each time you’re stung, there is a terrible pain that you feel in your core. Shock, humiliation, betrayal… the rug is pulled out from beneath your feet and you find yourself suffering.
The thing is, Beloved, you must understand that right now, this is your period of awakening, and you are in the fight of your life. You are fighting for the greatest treasure: ownership of your life—your AUTHORITY.
The period began a few months back and it is gaining momentum. In the Spring, the Universe dared you to dream your biggest dreams and you said, “Yes.” That “Yes” was a signal to the entire cosmos that you are on board the success train. The thing that you may not have understood, however, is the deep changes you would need to make at the level of your Soul in order for you to have that success be long lasting and forever.
You see, Beloved, you are NOT just an ordinary human being. You are Divinity in form and this is what must be awakened in you SO THAT OUR ENTIRE PLANET CAN SHIFT. You are a change-maker but the change must begin within you.
Your dreams, hopes and ambitions are all worthy, but there must be significant change in your ego so that your Inner Wisdom can come through. Your ego is a mask that you formed to protect your Inner Light. But along the way, your ego became the driver of your focus and this is really the only problem you have. Your problems are not your outer world circumstances. Your only issue is managing the collection of thoughts, beliefs, choices and focus that make up your ego. Your ego is a mask of lies that cover up the Truth of the nature of Reality and subsequently, your innate magnificence. The time has arrived for you to drop the mask. The Sun and New Moon in Scorpio are the doorway.
If you are reading this article, then Spirit has guided you here because you need to know what I’m about to tell you. You need to know that the mask of your ego is the source of all your pain and it is time for that mask to be removed for good. It is time for you to let go of all the lies you’ve been telling yourself about who you are and why you do what you do. You’ve been perpetuating myths and only living up to a millionth of your greatest potential and now is the time to get off the path of suffering and Self-destruction, and to get on the road to true enlightenment.
It’s now or never, Lovely.
I told you that the Universe is offering you your Greatest Potential on a silver platter and that the platter (and your potential) are being guarded by a ferocious scorpion. Well, here’s the deal: every time that scorpion stings you, he is delivering you Medicine. In the three-dimensional world, we call the scorpion’s sting venom. In the higher dimensions, we call that Medicine. That Medicine is a precious elixir that is helping to break down the hard shell of your egoic mask.
You see, it’s that mask that is your problem and it’s the scorpion’s venom that is the solution. The sting and the delivering of the Medicine hurts. We acknowledge that. But that’s the nature of life here… and how you relate to that hurt, HOW YOU DEFINE IT, and what you do with it are all up to you. You can choose ego’s perspective and make yourself a victim and martyr of the Scorpio’s sting or you can embrace it and face the pain with your eyes wide open, your battle cry being, “I AM that I AM!”
It’s totally your choice. That’s, in fact, the only choice you have in the matter. That’s your only really free will—your attitude and how you choose to interpret what is happening around you.
You were born in this world without an ego and for the first several years of your life, you were all up in your Greatest Potential. The scorpion was always there as protector, but when you were a wee bairn, your approach was perfect—nonjudgmental, non-dictatorial, non-controlling. By the way, if you think your Greatest Potential has anything to do with this three-dimensional world, you’re completely wrong. If you think your Greatest Potential is about what you do, what you achieve, what you accumulate; if you think it’s about how much money you have, your relationships, or your job, education, or your travels… you’re wrong. Those things are all reflections of what is going on with the relationship between you, your ego, your Soul and your Higher Self. The outside things are NOT your Greatest Potential. Those things are the offspring of your relationship with yourself.
Your Greatest Potential is wildly simple. It is CONNECTION.
Now, stick with me, my beloved Badass Butterfly-in-Training. I want to talk to you about the astrology so that you’ll understand why now is a super auspicious time. I’ll come back to complete what you need to know beyond this period about the nature of your ego.
When the Sun rises in any sign, we become more like that sign. It’s like our personality has been implanted in another landscape that looks identical to the one we are accustomed to, but there’s a very thin filter that is slightly changing our perception. With the Sun’s shift into Scorpio on October 23rd, we all became a little more feminine, intuitive, a little more sexual. When it rises in Scorpio, our outer, masculine authority and our personality shift to become Scorpio-like. Imagine yourself to be a powerful being dialed into their emotions, connected to their bodies and super aware of their desires. That’s what you are right now.
As I said, on November 7th, the Moon rises new in Scorpio. The Moon is our inward (feminine) Authority and when she rises, we enter a time when we should think about what we desire to manifest for ourselves in the material world.
Scorpio is a magical sign, most recognizable by the level of its intensity. Scorpio people are intense! This is mostly because of Scorpio’s ability to be present and CONNECTED in the moment. You could easily swap out the word ‘intense’ with the word CONNECTED and get the gist of what Scorpio feels like. But many people suffer from a crisis of CONNECTION so ‘intense’ helps them understand Scorpio a little bit better.
In classic astrology, Scorpio was ruled by Mars, but in modern astrology, it’s ruled by Pluto. Both influence the sign strongly. In the cosmos, Mars represents the ego. It originates from the god of War and it represents our deepest survival instinct. Pluto represents our will to power and this originates in CONNECTION.
In Greek and Roman mythology, Pluto rules the underworld, which is where the ancients thought everybody went after they died. Eventually, the underworld became associated with hell, but those torturous images of abuse are not what the ancients had in mind. In fact, Pluto is a monogamous god and is seen as stern, but hospitable to the dead. There are many gates to the underworld and those are quite gnarly as each one was guarded by some fierce monster like the hydra or the centaurs. They had to be fierce, though, to keep out the pesky and curious living!
For our explorations, suffice it to say that Pluto is more about the spirit of death, which is what we need to embrace right now as we deliberately turn inward to inventory what we need to release emotionally if we are to feast on our Highest Potential. By the way, it is also important to note that Pluto is also associated with the great wealth that comes from all things subterranean such as gold and other mineral mines, but more importantly, perhaps for us is the tremendous harvest that comes from the seeds you plant and nurture in the ground. This is why we must have a fierce little Scorpion guarding your Highest Potential. It is a treasure trove of wealth and prosperity! We can’t let some wacky ego get hold of it and tarnish it!
Now, friend, I want to let you know that the information that I am presenting is channeled and researched to provide clarification. My process is to go directly to the planet and then directly to the deity to find out what they want to share. And then, as I write, I use my own personal perspective to seek out clarification so that I can make sure I’m communicating the stories effectively. Right now, Pluto is showing me a very warm and personable aspect of himself because he wants you all to know that with the Sun and New Moon in Scorpio, we are going to have to deal with death—not necessarily of the physical body (although that is not to be totally ruled out or excluded) but for our work, it’s more about the death of the old identities, habits, thought patterns and ways of being… THE EGO. It’s time to let go of the ego, which will feel like death as we lose our identification. Pluto wants you to know that he is here as a guardian, a protector and an advocate for you in the death of your old self. Take your Medicine, Precious One! Rather than be afraid, you should embrace this Sun and Moon phase as a celebration of what was as you make space for what will be.
When you investigate the keywords for this Sun and Moon phase, you’ll find that ‘connection’ is at the center of all those 8th house qualities. In this house is contained things that pertain to death, and rebirth; taxes, inheritance, debt and credit (aka other people’s money;) sex, intimacy and connection; the occult, magick and the underworld. Pluto is a dwarf planet, but that little guy is a badass that is responsible for all our urges to power. Take a look at the 8th house concepts and their relationship to CONNECTION below:
The death and rebirth process are offspring of connection because the two are at polar opposites yet 100% connected. When the physical body dies and gets buried in the earth, new life springs forth as the organisms around it are fed. This is much in the way that catabolism and anabolism are the destruction of one thing leads to the creation of another. Connection is the strong tie that binds these forces and allows the cycle to continue. Connection is the reason that life continues after death.
Other people’s money is about the connection between you and those around you. If you are disconnected, you don’t get the benefit of other people’s money. Investors in your business, funding for your education, alimony, child support, your share in your family’s legacy, your payout for what you’ve bought into… all of this requires you to be connected to your society. So in this way, this Sun and Moon phase are giving you the opportunity to work on how you participate in the society that supports you… that’s CONNECTION!
Sexuality has its mechanical aspects and its emotional ones. These are directly connected. Likewise, how you relate to sex is reflective of your ability to CONNECT If your sexual organs are malfunctioning, this Sun and Moon phase are key to helping you resolve the issues. If you are cut off from the intimate CONNECTION of sexuality, this is a great time to heal. Sex is intimate. We like to throw it around our society and treat it like its cheap and worthless, but it is not. Sex is rich, creative and powerful. It is a primary opportunity to connect with another in a meaningful moment. At its best, it breeds intimacy and the participants find themselves in the throes of the death and rebirth process—CONNECTED in the moment. Surrendered.
The occult is all about your CONNECTION to the other world—the world beyond the material illusion. Your ability to leave your ego behind determines your ability to truly connect to the other dimensions. This is why the scorpion guards your Highest Potential. It can’t let the greedy paws of the ego taint the pristine perfection of your Inner Light.
This is why you must get control of your ego. If you want to truly access the pool of your Divinity, you gotta drop the mask. The New Moon and Sun in Scorpio are going to help you do just that.
When you were born and for the first several years of your life, you were constantly in the present moment. Your emotions were flowing and you were seeing the world through the eyes of innocence. You didn’t have judgment in the way of opinions, yet you were naturally able to receive all the signs of right and wrong and you responded to it all in an Authentic way. Your Authentic response is your Inner Authority. Inner Authority happens naturally when you are connected. You become the Author of your own life.
As you developed in this world, your brain and your environment started developing your ego. Now look. I have to acknowledge that your ego is not entirely its own fault. Your ego is no accident, my friend. You chose this ego before you came down to Earth. Your ego was partly shaped by your Soul, which came in with your mystical aspects—your astrology, your numerology, your karma, Spirit Guides. And these mystical aspects were reflected in your material world experience through your physiology, your parents, siblings, teachers, friends and peers, your home environment, your school, et cetera. All these things contributed to your identity, and ego is a mechanism that protects that identity. It keeps you (as your identity) separated from the world outside. So, it is very careful to judge what does and does not belong in its limited world.
Ego is a mandatory aspect of our three-dimensional experience, however. We all gotta have an ego. The thing that happens, though, is that in our development, we start over-identifying with our ego and we lose touch with the Authentic Self which existed before ego came into being. Ego uses thought concepts and perception to be in the world. For example, ego is more likely to think God rather than to experience God. Remember, Beloved, that before ego, you were innocent, open, and receptive. Before ego, we were CONNECTED. You knew God/Goddess/Source of All intimately before your ego was born. You may not have had the words for it and you may not have been able to draw a picture of it that had meaning to those outside of yourself. But you knew it inside of you because you were completely at one with it unconditionally. It wasn’t until your ego started developing the mask that would become your personality and identity that you started losing your CONNECTION to ALL. Remember that ego separates, so ego is not really comfortable with connection.
As I said before, ego is a natural aspect of the three-dimensional experience. However, the power and authority you give it in your life is determined by YOU. Your ego had to form, but it is you (your consciousness) that emphasizes it and bestows it power and authority that it really does NOT deserve. Ego is a mechanism that uses fear, judgment, condemnation, resistance, doubt, and limitation as a method of controlling its environment. It is a storyteller that uses its limited perception of the past to avoid the present while instead projecting and determining the future to match its limited imagination. Ego, in its very nature is DISCONNECTED. That is the nature of ego: separation from the whole. That is the nature of identity. There’s nothing wrong with having identity… until it cuts you off from your own Source of power: your Authentic, CONNECTED Self.
When we are growing up and we develop the habit of relating to the world through our ego, we are building up a mask. A mask is a habituated response that conceals what lies behind it. There’s nothing wrong with donning a mask until you lose sight of what lies behind it. The key word here is YOU. You are the consciousness in charge of it all. If YOU lose sight of what your ego has done, then you’re going to suffer for it. And that’s what most of us have done. We’ve lost sight of our true Source of power and focused all our attention on an illusion built upon the interpretation of a scared being. Time to drop the mask.
A mask is never the real thing. Ego is never the real thing. So if you are seeing a situation through your ego, you are not seeing the real thing. If you are seeing a situation through the eyes of fear, you are not seeing the situation as it truly is. If you are seeing a person through the eyes of judgment or condemnation (and I don’t care who the person is or what they have done,) you are NOT seeing the real person, you are seeing through the eyes of ego. Anytime you do something from the place of ego, you are not in reality. You are in an illusion of fear and limited perception. You are seeing the thing through the past. You are NOT connected when you are in ego. AND you are NOT in Reality. You are in the illusion.
Your ego is thinking that your Highest Potential is caught up in the illusory material world. It thinks this because it is a limited little monster that can only see through the eyes of the past and its limited perception. So if you keep on reaching for the platter of your Highest Potential with egoic hands, those hands are going to get stung. If you keep on looking at your Highest Potential with egoic eyes, your eyes are going to get stung. It’s all gonna hurt. But you know what? Every sting brings you the Medicine you need to dissolve the mask of the ego.
My advice is to let it.
Start off by CONNECTING to the sting itself. You know that pain you’re feeling? Ego wants to avoid that pain, so it walls it off and tries to distract you so you can’t feel it. Stop it right there and instead, reach for the pain. The nature of Scorpio gives you access to your deepest emotions, so reaching for that pain to heal it is one of the great opportunities of this Sun and Moon transit
Now, normally, during the New Moon phases, I don’t encourage you to do a lot of Shadow Work, meaning working with your negative emotions. But that is changing. I am encouraging you to delve into your dark emotions now because you can take the pain and use it to create your future. And again, this is the nature of Scorpio, so try to enjoy the process and be appreciative of it.
The Sun and New Moon in Scorpio are here to help you stop resisting the simplicity of your Highest Potential. Stop complicating your life with your egoic needs and desires. Stop hiding behind your ego’s weird-ass eccentricities, judgments, and fears. Take a risk on feeling your way with your heart and allowing the Universe to bring you what you need according to Divine Timing. Let go of your egoic obsessions and instead, sit still and just be.
There is an opportunity for you to have a tremendous breakthrough RIGHT NOW. But it’s not going to come by your ego forcing its way into the situation and demanding that the Universe answer it. The Universe does not give a flying f*ck about your ego’s demands and the way your ego wants the world to behave. The Universe cares only about your vibration and your vibration is determined by what you identify with most. If you are identifying with your Authentic Self, which is innocent, connected and trusting, then you are going to experience a world that reflects innocence, connection and trust. But if you are identified with your ego, which again is about the past, fear, and limited perception, then you are going to experience all that—repetitions of past drama, trauma, obstacles, and anxieties.
In this Law of Attraction Universe, your vibration is key. Your vibration is a collection of your focus, and your thoughts, beliefs, behaviors and your choices in any given moment. What you focus on the most is determining your vibration. Your egoic monkey mind has a focus it is constantly dancing from thought to thought around this object of focus… and you just let it. The content of those thoughts and that focus IS YOUR VIBRATION. Check out your thoughts over the course of the day and see what they are about. Are you thoughts reflecting a state of mind that is positive, optimistic, trusting and creative? Or are they reflecting a state of mind that is expecting the worst and fending off disaster? Is your mind projecting a fruitful, abundant garden inhabited by joyful, harmonious creatures? Or is your mind projecting onto the world the remnants of the Zombie Apocolypse—dangerous and desolate… a wasteland where your survival is threatened at every turn?
The Universe is responding to your focus, friend, and around this time every year, the Universe invites you to come back to Reality. When the Sun and the New Moon are both in Scorpio, you are being given an opportunity to tuck into your Highest Potential. Here we are. It’s up to you to take receive the sting and take your medicine. Enjoy the New Moon in Scorpio, and I’ll see you in the ritual.
