This autumn is an extraordinary full month of astrological happenings. In this my fourth writing on this period I want to focus on what is happening in Scorpio supporting the emergence of the ‘Imaginal Mind’.
The Linear mind is what we are most familiar with on planet Earth, and hopefully if you are reading this you will not need convincing that the intellect, on which as humanity we have mostly relied, is severely limited in providing answers to the big questions of our time.
Humanity is developing a new form of intelligence closer to when we were in the aeons of Lemuria and Atlantis, but in fact even better because we are learning to master polarization and transmutation of emotion in ways that were not possible then because we were not yet in our densest form.
We are in a process now where we are alchemizing that dense form. Eventually we will become much lighter, etheric beings and New Earth already exists on this level as Spirit merges and completely absorbs Matter. When this happens, we may experience states of bliss and intoxication, feeling perfectly at One with the One.
You may be familiar with the term The Seven Seals, most commonly we know it from the Prophecies of St John in Revelation. John was clearly in an enhanced Imaginal state of mind when he wrote it because it has travelled across time and space seamlessly, filled with incredible imagery. The Seven Seals have always been available to people in higher frequency bands, but now there are larger portal openings.
The First Seal is the final Seal to open and it is about the full impregnation of Spirit into Matter. This New Moon just past aligned to Arcturus and Spica, open a moon cycle where we have a special opportunity to embody the energies coming through. We don’t know when this Seal will open fully, it’s not in the immediate future, but this is an excellent time for preparation and we can already access its energies and teachings.
The emergence of the ‘Imaginal Mind’ is supported by Astraea at 29 Libra travelling just behind Juno and Mercury in Scorpio. Mercury has just gone retrograde intensifying this whole process. Today as I’m writing this 17 October the Moon has also entered Scorpio joining the party and I feel her beautiful pull on my imagination this morning. I actually wrote this blog yesterday and lost it, and what came this morning with the Moon’s influence has so much more clarity.
So, what is the Imaginal Mind? Firstly, it’s so much more than the mind, it’s using our full capacity for intelligence and especially the body and emotions. We are just discovering how incredibly miraculous our bodies are, enhanced detectors that never lie. Our bodies are gathering information all the time and sending the messages back into the Universe in biofeedback loops. This is all central to the Creation process, we are not passive participants on this journey.
On the 19th October Astraea will enter Scorpio with her enhanced capacity for imagination and creativity which has the power to create new forms. Juno travelling with Mercury speaks to me of the interplay between the left and right hemispheres of the brain, the inner alchemical marriage of the male and female.
They are opposing revolutionary Uranus at 0 Scorpio/Taurus so this will be an exciting, even electrifying few days. Expect some revelations to emerge. There is that old saying that we find treasure when we are willing to enter the underworld, and if there was ever a transit to bring the treasure to the surface this is it. Making sacred space and inviting these new energies in will be highly beneficial.
The Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd October the same day as Vesta the Priestess enters Virgo. Vesta will be enhanced in Virgo – a natural sign for her to flourish in. Vesta enhances our inner authority and powers of intention to create, so in this beautiful sextile to Astraea, Juno and Mercury and once again enhances the frequency of the energies.
On the 26th October the Sun is exactly conjunct Astraea at 3 Scorpio so we can expect some illumination, as in the linear world around us the cracks in systems intensify. This is a great day to plan some art, writing or music.
Juno comes into a challenging square with Hygeia who is all about finding healing through being in rhythms with natural cycles. Those in the linear mind are going to feel increasingly under time pressure and stressed, whereas the beauty of the Imaginal mind is that we enter a timeless realm. The global lockdown has actually helped many people in this respect being forced to slow down. Suddenly we start to see the illusion that we need this fast paced, materialist way of living to be happy or to survive. It really is an illusion.
The Art of Contemplation and ingesting these Goddess Archetypes over many years has helped me make a remarkable transition to this timeless, bounteous place. These asteroids, I am discovering more and more after 15 years of learning about them, really are the key to so many parts of us that are coming together as a whole.
You may have heard the story that the asteroids are the remnants of a Feminine planet Tiamut that was deliberately blown up in the Interstellar wars. These fragments may become integrated again within ourselves, and when they do, suddenly, we are living in a whole new reality.
Whilst writing this a beautiful poem from The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran crossed my path, which perfectly exemplifies these Goddess Transits in Scorpio
‘You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance. For what is prayer but the expansion of yourself into the living ether? And if it is for your comfort to pour your darkness into space, it is also for your delight to pour forth the dawning of your heart.’
