EYE ON THE SKY: SUN IN SCORPIO NOV. 16-DEC. 15
The Sun moves into Scorpio on Thursday and ends its difficult month in Libra. The transition period from 29.20-0.40 Libra/Scorpio on Wednesday and Thursday can be an inauspicious time for starting new things and may create agitation during the transition. Scorpio is the natural 8th sign of the zodiac owned by Mars and Ketu and represents the mystery of life, sexual or kundalini energy, the occult. It is a water sign and deep connected to intuition and higher spiritual knowledge and can bring up deep karmic and psychological releases.
Saturn is out of Scorpio and and will not hinder the Sun and Mars, the owner of Scorpio is a pleasant 11 houses away and supporting the Sun. The first part of Scorpio is connected to the constellation of Anuradha which runs (Scorpio 3.20-16.40) and the Sun’s transit there between Nov. 19-Dec. 2nd. The constellation of Anuradha is connected to Mitra, the God of Light and this transit can awaken one connection to the Divine. This can really enliven and awaken spiritual life. If you were born Nov. 19-Dec. 2nd, you may have a strong spiritual inclination which will be enlivened by this transit. The Sun is the planet of the soul and of expressing ones power at this time is very important and the goal is not to get immersed in materialism but remember one’s deep connection to the Divine and use the awakened Kundalini of Scorpio energy for higher consciousness. Saturn’s ownership of this constellation can bring great teachings of cosmic truths if you can lean to move to the highest level of knowledge of responsibility for the planet and Self-realization.
Still the darker side of this transit may come out as the Sun channel’s Saturn’s energy and Saturn is still weak in the early degrees of Sagittarius until Thanksgiving. The movement toward Saturn peaking into Dec. 21st will have an impact more when the Sun goes into Sagittarius on Dec. 16th. This can bring up some conflicts with government, leadership or employers and so this is not a time to avoid taxes or go into rebellion against the police.
Saturn becomes combust and burned by the Sun Dec. 5-Jan. 7 while the Sun is in Scorpio and this may dampen Christmas spirit a bit. As the Sun gets closer to Saturn in mid-Dec. and gets impacted the darker energy of the the Sun may come out leading to jealousy, possessiveness, bluntness, scandalous behavior, cruelty, spitefulness and potential heart problems and reproductive problems as it moves to conjunction into Dec. 21st. I often find that blood pressure can go up when the Sun is approaching Saturn for some people so watch your heart health and exercise routine between Dec. 5-Jan. 7th.
The Sun will move into Jyestha nakshatra Dec. 3rd-16th which is more material and sensual part of the sign. It will channel Mercury’s darker energy from the Mercury/Saturn conjunction on Nov. 28th and retrograde again Dec. 6th . Fear will be activated and a climax in authority tension may be felt at this time. Saturn requires being patient and not raging out over things you cannot change. The US Rahu period running for another 17 years is going to bring about deep transformation for the US.
The US is a Sagittarius country so Sun in Scorpio is a 12th house transit of change, frustration and loss so be patient until Sun goes over the US ascendant on Dec. 21st for a deeper rebirth. Unfortunately this is happening with Saturn over the US ascendent at 5-6 degees Sagittarius.
So move toward a spiritual Thanksgiving, give thanks, help others and then expect more tension in December as we move toward Christmas. Make make to stay on top of your meditation and yoga to stay balanced and turn off the TV and look for the deeper truths of what is happening in our world.
