The Mary-El Tarot & The Numerology Guidance Oracle

Happy Solar Return to you Scorpio! Abundance and movement are two key words during your solar return for 2016/2017.

*This reading can also be applied to those with Scorpio rising.

The Chariot/Abundance

Venus/Saturn in your financial sector is forcing you to function with less and this is actually a blessing in disguise. Working hard/long hours may be putting a damper on your love life or making it difficult to spend time with those you love but the payoff is worth it. Getting control of your finances and making some solid adjustments when it comes to your earnings is something you’ll be forced to do. The good news is Jupiter, planet of expansion and abundance (and ruler of the SR 2nd house) makes a positive aspect to Venus. The Chariot card is often a symbol of being disciplined and in control (Saturn). Drive…

Scorpio New Moon – October 30th, 2016: Mystical Merging

Posted on Updated on

venus is ascending

The Crystal Oracle

This New Moon in Scorpio at 7 degrees [1:38 PM EST] is quite bewitching with it’s trine to Neptune/South Node in Pisces and conjunction to Mercury. I pulled 3 cards from The Crystal Oracle and they tied into this New Moon perfectly. 

Amber Keywords:PurificationCreativityTransparency.

Scorpio is very much a sign that deals with purification and purging. Transparency can be a challenge due to Scorpio’s private nature but with the New Moon’s trine to Neptune the veil between the physical world and mystical world will be quite thin. Neptunian energy, especially in Pisces, lacks boundaries and merging with those around us won’t be as challenging, but we still have to shield ourselves from absorbing too much. Psychic powers can be dangerous when not harnessed properly. Shielding yourself from energy vampires is a must. Scorpio’s ruler, Pluto possesses the purification abilities that Amber symbolizes and…

Mars enters Scorpio – January 3rd, 2016: Magnetic initiative & profound intensity

The warriors spirit takes an interesting turn when it enters the dark waters of Scorpio (January 3rd, 9:32 AM EST) until March 5th, when it then ingresses into Sagittarius. Mars in the natal chart gives insight into one’s physical energy and how one takes action. Mars is also linked to physical/sexual attraction and excitement. Stimulation can be discovered through working with Mars energy; when in the water signs, intuition is often used to bring about tangible results. Mars is focused/directed energy.

Mars in Scorpio has a drive and focus that is ferocious and calculating. The Mars in Scorpio individual is often covert and investigative; they assert themselves through intense emotions. Mars isn’t exactly well-placed in this particular sign. The Martian energy, if under duress, can use manipulative means in order to obtain their goal, but for the most part Mars is Scorpio is highly passionate and focused when it comes to what they want. They often make amazing private investigators and researches. When it comes to getting to the bottom of a situation, no one does it like Scorpio. They pretty much have X-ray vision in that respect.

The Mars in Scorpio individual has strong sexual urges that are expressed and shared through deep emotional and psychological bonding. Not as bold or upfront, as say, Mars in Aries, Mars in Scorpio tends to get the job done behind the scenes. Issues surrounding self-protection and the need to control almost every situation that crosses their path can be an issue, especially with more stressful aspects such as the square and opposition.

How will Mars’ ingress into Scorpio impact us on a personal level? Our ability to move forward and make things happen may be dampened by obsessive secretiveness and selfish desires. The more positive expression of this energy will be Scorpio’s fixed nature; our desires are guided through intuitive abilities and a strong sense of inner knowing. The need to achieve will be persistent and calculating. We’re taking no prisoners this time around! The, meet-you-half-way energy that Mars in Libra ushered in, will be the furthest from our minds. We’re going to make things happen, no matter what the cost. We’ll more than likely be courageous behind the scenes.

Healing stones for Mars in Scorpio: Mars can be quite aggressive if not properly harnessed. Scorpio, if operating on a lower vibration, can be possessive and compulsive; Scorpio is very much a sign of purging, psychic sensitivity and powerful regenerative abilities. Use this energy to tap into your deepest desires and healing emotional involvement with others.

  • Lapis Lazuli – Good for empowerment
  • Sardonyx – Excellent to work with for determination
  • Smoky Quartz – Helps to release blockages (Scorpio tends to have issues with emotional blockages due to subconscious fears of being overwhelmed by their emotions. This can lead to secretiveness, trust-issues, and feeling as though they can’t “open up”)
  • Obsidian – Another stone that’s good for determination (Mars)
  • Black Star Diopside – A stone for sheer will-power and addictive patterns (water signs in general can suffer from addiction issues)

 

 

Venus enters Scorpio – December 4th, 2015: Intense Feelings, Transformation, & Sexual Desires

Posted on

“Jealousy in The Harem,” Fernand Cormon, 1874

Venus enters Scorpio on December 4th at 11:19 PM EST. Venus is detriment when it’s in Scorpio. This sounds worse than it actually is; it simply means that the planet associated with love may have a difficult time functioning and expressing Venusian energy with Scorpio’s intense Plutonian energy involved. Venus in Scorpio creates the need for strong sexual desires and in some cases, the need may become so overwhelming that obsession takes over. Relationships are often deep, dark, and transformative in nature.

Venus in Scorpio certainly isn’t for the faint of heart! during this time we may find ourselves digging deeply into our love lives and how we express love  to those who are close to us. There may some internal conflict between wanting to merge with those we love and wanting to be secretive about our deepest feelings due to trust issues. Scorpio often struggles with being consumed by their feelings; power plays and struggles often arise in romantic relationships due to their compulsive need to control the situation and in some extreme cases, those they love.

We have to be especially cautious of  not using manipulation and sex as a tool to control those around us. Emotional control can backfire. Remember that. Being vengeful and calculating is the lower vibration of Scorpio.

The best way to deal with this kind of energy is to use and express love in a healing way (Scorpio’s make wonderful healers) that encourages growth and most importantly, transformation. No one rises from the ashes like a Scorpio. Scorpio has the ability to tap deeply into the psyche and explore all of the dark riches that dwell there. This allows them to uplift and encourage those around them. Scorpio’s are natural therapists. There’s no subject too dark or difficult for them to handle, and because of this gift, people tend to come to them for insight and emotional support.

New Moon in Scorpio – November 11th, 2015: Phoenix’s Rising & The Process of Rebirth

Today’s New Moon greets us at 19 degrees Scorpio. This is a New Moon of great personal power. It’s no secret that Scorpio is often known as the manipulative sign. This New Moon is encouraging us to use our powers in more constructive ways. Scorpio’s ruler, Pluto, governed the underworld in Greek mythology. Pluto creates, destroys, then re-creates; what better way to celebrate this New Moon with a bit of ego destruction and shadow work?

Scorpio was quite the seductress in previous lives, often yearned for and hated by those around them. Often in positions of power, they were not above using their psychic gifts to control those around them. Working on issues surrounding control and power struggles is highly suggested. Writing a list of the things you can control verses the things you cannot  can be helpful as well.Scorpio New Moon

The New Moon’s sextile to Jupiter makes the process of transformation a pleasant treat. Scorpio is the psychologist of the Zodiac; our intuitive abilities are at a heightened state. The hypnotic magnetism of this New Moon cannot be denied. Those who practice sex magick can especially benefit from this cunning energy. Focusing on psychic powers, telepathy and dream work are a few activities one can work on during this New Moon.

The dark goddess, Lilith, forms a wide conjunction to Venus; Lilith isn’t interested in being controlled. She owns her own sexuality. She is very much the revolutionary with shamanic and sexual healing powers. Channel this divine feminine energy for your rituals, healing and self-love work. This is the perfect combination for those who feel as though they have lost their power. If this is you, now is the time to reclaim it.

Again, don’t take this New Moon lightly! The Moon is extremely powerful but even more so when she’s in Scorpio.
