Practical Influences ~ Scorpio

When the Moon enters a zodiac sign it adds instinctive reaction, unconscious predestination, sensitivity, emotions, intuition, imagination and emotional depth to influences that are at play; when the Sun enters a zodiac sign it adds vitality, individuality, will-power, creative energy and inspirational action to the influences at play; both affect the energy of our daily lives. Being mindful and calling upon these influences as well as utilising materials associated with them during these phases, will bring you closer to understanding your alchemical journey.

Ruler ~ Pluto

There are serious, and heavy-duty symbolic meanings associated with Pluto. Pluto shows deeply inward and withdrawn mentality which is bound to make one withdraw into the inner sanctum of the psyche.

Pluto is in charge of the tremendous activity of the underworld. The deep, dark, mysterious, unknown, Pluto manages a domain completely hidden from our common reality and physical sight. It’s hustle and bustle is felt in the physical as all things (seen and unseen) are infinitely connected.

Element ~ Water 

Water is associated with intuition and the emotions. It denotes depth of creativity and imagination. Water is relentless and follows it’s own path regardless of resistance or obstacles.

Quality ~ Fixed

The role of the Fixed quality is to maintain, uphold and defend positions, responsibilities, goals or desires in everyday situations. The least welcoming of change fixed quality means to preserve tradition  and maintain energy. The fixed quality manifests as being very driven and solid with a predictability that can be counted on.
