Take time for reflection, and then see how your ability to know yourself enhances conscious decision making. This is self study (svadhyaya) in action.
We meet a Scorpio new moon on November 7.
The vibe of Scorpio, the archetype of the actor, has us writhing in our roles–sons, daughters, wives, friends, sisters, mothers, peacekeepers, role models, basic bitches. Do you feel uncomfortable with how things are written in the script? Are you just going the motions or nah?
There is no judgment stronger than the one we put on ourselves. There is no effect without cause. There is no cause without effect.
Consider each action a cross-roads. It’s an opportunity to go in so different directions.
Then maybe we can plug into the Scorpio vibe and turn it up.
This is a friendly reminder that every choice has the potential to generate a multiplicity of new paths. Each path will be punctuated with experiences that have been generated by cause-effect, cause-effect, cause-effect. It’s like riding a subway train where you might invoke autonomy and choose your tracks, but the rails will be the ones to bring you to your destination. The journey you have is care of the choices (cause-effect) that have laid down the track.
Don’t you ever wish you could just levitate above everything? I know I do.
The Scorpio new moon feels like a window of opportunity to practice floating.
Scorpio has a reputation that precedes it, right? It’s scary and intense and magnetic. Sometimes people don’t want to go there. Scorpio is the archetype associated with the deep deep, aka the subconscious, the patterns that underlie the direction of our actions. It’s a very Scorpionic statement to say, “I was mesmerized and couldn’t help myself…”
But levitation is just a different way of interacting with magnetic force. It’s the balance of repulsion and attraction that causes the float.
So what I’m suggesting here is the opportunity to bypass the normal route. Go above. Plug into the Scorpio and, effectively, re-write your route.
Let’s go back to floating.
Imagine yourself hovering above your life.
Perhaps in the space above the normal route, your perspective will shift. You will see something you didn’t know about yourself. You will tap into the pure Scorpio part of your mind and activate the POWER to alchemize-process-make conscious choices that will take you in a direction that allows for more consciousness. More awareness.
Let’s get off our crazy, disempowered train.
You can stay floating as you reflect…
REFLECTION PROMPT: Write a description, similar to a social media profile, of a person who exudes confidence in decision making. Give that person attributes, like favorite food and music, that are yours. Float with that person for a few and see how that feels.
That person could be you.
