Scorpio Balsamic Moon—December 19
Drastic extremes could be or become pronounced today…
Bad habits, too, could experience crucial confrontations.
Feelings of suffocation could be endured, or, quite contrarily, the painful infliction of those which we do not possess…
Matters and manipulations of codependency could also be or become somewhat illuminated.
Metaphors of drowning and struggling are rife in today’s lunarly translations—the imagery of striving most desperately and thereby one must indeed consider matters of power and control, self and all else… one must most uncomfortably confront one’s ability to not only survive, but to thrive—though, it’s part and parcel for a balsamic phase in Scorpio…
It is most essential to keep in mind, as Marian Anderson has stated, “as long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you otherwise might…”
What are you realistically able to endure by yourself?
What threshold of pain are you realistically able to feel before you buckle to your knees?
What does relief symbolize to you?
What do the notions of power and control invoke within you?
What is the minimum of sustenance you require to survive?
Who are you underneath all of society’s embellishments?
When do you know when to (re)adjust your boundaries?
Today’s energies may find a way to inspire you to consider the answer to one or more of these questions, so that you might better understand the more primitive layers of yourself and your most shadowed thoughts and fears…
