STUDYING THE DARKNESS

Forecast for Sunday, September 20th
Scorpio Crescent Moon

★Oracular Overview—it’s that time of the month again, when the darkness beckons to be illuminated: from within or from all directions…

The origins of psychoanalysis begin with Sigmund Freud.

Freud believed ‘that people could be cured by making conscious their unconscious thoughts and motivations, thus gaining “insight”… the aim of psychoanalysis therapy is to release repressed emotions and experiences, i.e. make the unconscious conscious.’

In other words, illuminating the shadows and darknesses with inner light.

Shadow work works to strengthen our shadows, to integrate these into our consciousness, to appropriately use, and live with.

But this must be used constructively, with emotional intelligence; not to dwell or ruminate or blame or project…

❝Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.❞
——Anais Nin

Right now, here in this moment, here in this Now, collectively, throughout this entire year, we’re being somewhat forced—or willfully encouraged—to acknowledge our shadows at every turn… as shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera refers, we are being somewhat forced to “study our darkness”.

Today’s vibrations and reverberations may offer the triggering of irritations, or the precocious provocations of matters which are strangely denied, and to be, more preferably, left alone without examination or investigation.

❝You cannot defeat darkness by running from it.❞
——Seth Adam Smith

So, it would be natural to assume that today may aggressively tap the shoulder of that which you insist on rejecting, denying, resisting, or ignoring—today may bring a light to illuminate a darkness that has been fiercely protected by your ego with intensely determined tenacity.

Further, beyond the extremes and intensities of a Scorpio moon confronting you in all directions, a Mercury/Pluto square is insisting on answers, rolling back the carpets to pry underneath for clues, and investigating all angles… there’s an obvious obsessiveness abound. Words, too, will be quite powerful, so choose wisely. Of course, it’s somewhat natural to presume that the ego, feeling threatened in any way—real or imagined, would not exactly be thrilled with any confrontation of this magnitude, and, furthermore, only speaks to the squish underneath such protected forces…

Anything you’re wanting to put upon an/Other—it would be well advised to put it upon yourself first… if it doesn’t pass with you—consider how it could ever pass otherwise.

❝The true dwellers help you embrace the darkness in yourself and wield it at will. It is never belittling but empowering.❞
——Harshita Gottipati

However. The bright side of such heavy-hitting truths and isms? Well, if you’re open and willing to illuminate your shadowy stuff—intensely awe-worthy and alchemical (re)alignment, awakening, and therapeutic reward.

It’s a pretty fair trade, really. Considering.

Either way—for better or worse—it’ll be a heavier day of potentially smothering emotions or obsessively investigative psychoanalysis… it would be best to be honest, both within and with an/Other—you can’t possibly tend to that which has been buried and suffocated…

Truly—today is a day to study your darkness, to simply sit with it. Listen.

Any trigger you react to will tell you much—and play something of a part in alarm, though not reactively… this alarm should alert you to allow love and light, not forsake it.

❝How odd that we spend so much time treating the darkness, and so little time seeking the light. The ego loves to glorify itself by self-analysis, yet we do not get rid of darkness by hitting it with a baseball bat. We only get rid of darkness by turning on the light.❞
——Marianne Williamson

❝The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.❞
