14-Days of Samhain: Day Eight

The Eagle’s Light in A Visionary Moon

November 1.20222

Sun in Astrological Scorpio

Waxing Moon in Astrological Aquarius

Today, we are going to revisit the energy of the Samhain solar tides of astrological Scorpio and the First Quarter Waxing Moon of astrological Aquarius.

As we engage in the work of today, and being ever-mindful of the intention of using the gifts of Samhain’s energies for personal transformation, I invite you to begin with these declarations:

I see with the clarity and precision of the Eagle, exact and purposeful in the beating of its wings as it selects its prey of nourishment

I allow to arise the waters of wisdom that are poured onto the thirsty ground of my understanding

I trust the emptiness that creates the space for my Spirit to soar in ecstasy

I move with intention towards those actions that affirm my calling to the Phoenix that renders new form

… and…

I become the vessel of discernment that is in dialogue with all parts of my Being.

The Fixed Nature of Water and Air

Having arrived nearly at the mid-point of Scorpio’s solar month, it is time to consider the second form that Scorpio’s energy expresses-that of the Eagle. As we moved towards the date of Samhain marked as October 31st. our intentions have flowed in accord with the darker nature of this season that allowed for time to reach deeply into the instinctive nature of the scorpion. And, having navigated these metamorphic changes, we are ready to soar and on winged flight see from a different perspective honed by the keen awareness of the Eagle.

In the afterglow of last night’s celebrations, the Lunar tides now stand within the Fixed airiness of astrological Aquarius. The first day of November heralds the First Quarter moon, waxing towards its fullness on November 8th in astrological Taurus, the day after astrological Samhain on November 7th. As a side note all three (3-Aquarius – Scorpio and Taurus) of these energies are Fixed (aka. synthesizing and coalescing) signs.

Additionally if we consider the alchemical elements attributed to Scorpio and Aquarius, we see similarity in their nature as those of ebb and flow-currents of water-currents of air. Here we have the opportunity to ensure that our intentions will be distributed far and wide-carried within the intuitive nature of our Being (water) and on the breath of what we offer spoken and exhaled out (air).

The Eagle’s Light in A Visionary Moon

Our work during these 14-days leading up to astrological Samhain has been one of engaging the five points of alchemical/magickal nature aligning with the potency of Samhain’s grace. We have been working to activate inspired mind-the deep gnosis of heart-the catalytic Will-the blessings of manifest form and call all together with a newly refined and informed Spirit.

As we access the Eagle within our spiritual nature we are calling to those aspects that rise above the perceived limitations of the darkened and cold ground-the home of the scorpion and the reactive nature when we are blind to our truths. We see precisely and keenly what are goals are and elevate to the heights those aspirations to become surveyor of all that lay beneath.

Allowing the space of flight into those realms of command of the higher self opens the pathways to a vision of our place within the greater whole and our gifts to and from the collective spirit of all humanity. We pour out the waters of our devotional offerings holding the intention of healing for all concerned and, most importantly become the creators of a newly formed vessel open to the receipt of new experience. Remember, that the empty space of Aquarius’ urns are the synthesizing containers for new energy to flow within-for change-for growth-for reaching beyond what we thought was our only course of potential.

How will I honor my gifts of creation and my birthrite of visionary transformation?
