Ruled by Pluto ~Lord of the UnderWorld~ Scorpio desires to penetrate to the core of raw truths, honor self and others through deep watery emotional integrity, and investigate the vast chasms of one’s soul motivations and use of power. This catalytic metamorphosis is a descent into an internal darkness that alters the self.
Pluto, known as the archetypal Destroyer, heralds the coming of death, destruction, and re-birth on all levels. Just as the Phoenix burns and transmutes all that must die, a surrender to this inevitable resurrection process transforms control of the willful ego-identity and misuse of power.
This descent of the Soul is a war waged within that revolutionizes the Shadow of the egocentric self image. Scorpio’s innate ability as a sensitive healer can assist in the powerful elimination of all impediments to the flow of purifying energies, allowing the natural strength of vulnerability to emerge as a psychological cure.
Refusal to accept this inevitable de-construction can create internal battles that incite resistance or pain, and block the truth of the potential for higher states of awareness and conscious action. To experience the breakthrough, one must submit oneself over to the driving force of a necessary breakdown.
Fragmented pieces of the shattered Self morph and re-integrate during these cyclical ego-deaths, and new paradigms emerge. The quest becomes an alignment with universal energy; a surrender of willful control to acquire the authentic authority for execution of ‘right use of action’ in all endeavors.
Pluto’s lessons are vast: yield in place of force, obliterate the insignificant ego-self to allow one’s Light-being to shine, and courageously embrace the inescapable death that comes for us all.
