The Nuit Report for this week is posted!
The Sun enters Scorpio tomorrow (Sat), and is followed by Mercury on Monday. Lilith and Juno are conjunct in the mid degrees of Scorpio as well. We are prompted to sink deeply into the mysteries, rather than insisting on a bright sunny easy day. We are in the season of the mysteries of Death and Rebirth.
We tend to think of death as a topic that is not for polite company, or something not to mention around children, but as a Plutonian, I say... nope! Talking about death is a healthy, important thing, sacred even. Why act like it doesn't happen? So interesting the both Sex and Death, Eros and Thantos, are excluded from the table. And yet, they are the most important things in our existence! We all got here via a sexual union...that's how it happened, folks. And none of us get out alive.
We all want to know what's behind the veil...where were we before we were incarnated...and where do we go when we excarnate? Some people say they have answers, and maybe so. But its these mysteries that Scorpio, and its ruler, Lord Pluto, govern and express.
I'm at Pine Grove Cemetery in Lynn, MA (part of he greater Salem area). I had the pleasure of having a synchronistic conversation with one of the three cemetery grounds keepers. He digs the graves, and hold space for the funerals. We talked about how doing this work brings him a sense of profound enjoyment, in that he gets to be close to these mysteries, and how he also deeply appreciates the history of the cemetery.
We are prompted by the Universe to surrender our attachments to things that stand in the way of us connecting to our deepest essence, or our soul. Relationships are often the vehicle for such moments. Or the endings of things that are important to us. Where do we need to surrender and allow for our true selves to emerge?
Collectively, we are in a state of immense metamorphasis. Can you feel that? It isn't just you, and you're not crazy! There is a LOT going on!
