North Node & Saturn in Scorpio: Why things seem dark

Collectively, the North Node has been moving through Scorpio. Our karmic north is towards and through Scorpio Territory. For anyone who knows anything about Astrology, that alone explains why things seem dark.

Even in the happiest of places there still seems an underlying feeling of unease, of tightness.

Scoprio relates to the darkness, the dark nights of the soul, purging of the darkness,
hiding in the darkness. Skeletons yanked from closets. Scary monsters unveiled Scooby-Doo style.

Our Greatest Fears are being faced. That's why we hear news now of a girl falling from rollercoaster, planes crash landing, buses full of children tipping over, innocent people playing by a beach mowed down intentionally by a car, massive train wrecks, casualties in huge numbers (and all these examples within one whole week!). Corporate Corruption seems another Scorpionic Theme at play these days. Finding out we have been betrayed. Accepting Sex in all its forms (casual, committed, abusive). Accepting our Reptilian Side (the greedy ego). Facing our Inner Demons - our ancient wounds, ego addictions and separation consciousness.  Facing them how?

Usually by battling outer demons! 

Saturn in Scorpio makes sure the message sticks by having to go through long torturous experiences sometimes, (Saturn slows things down, draws them out or delays them) whilst at other times evolution comes with an instant ending and subsequent new beginnings. Either way, Scorpio Change is permanent.

The North Node in Scorpio says it's time to face the monster. The funny thing is those who have gone through traumatic "scorpio moments" are actually lighter and freer because they no longer fear the possibility. When you face your fear, it loses all control over you. That's what can happen during this time, if we don't get lost in the trauma and the fear of it all.

With my house fire fire of May 22, I am no stranger to this life lesson. The movie you see playing on your screen can so easily be playing right out before your very eyes. Change Happens. You can be swept up in its energy. And for everyone, inevitably loss is always part of Change.

The trick is to remember that our faces are being collectively 
shoved into the darkness so that we may turn a light on 
and get through to the other side of Hell, 
where life is much sweeter without the fear.

Fear is being squeezed out of everyone like a juice supplying a greedy monster who thrives on pain and chaos. Some call it the Satan principle, (Saturn relates to the Goat) playing out through the physical realm. A force that tests/reveals our Light through challenging (dark) experiences. Before us stands a grand opportunity. Once we face a fear, we can let it go.  We truly can be free. Whatever Pluto takes (the ruler of Scorpio), you can be sure it's number was up.

As we face our fears, we let them go on behalf of everyone. Groups of people and individuals alike are being swept up in this phase, astrologically allowing this energy to manifest through their lives. We keep letting go of pain, and powerlessness and abusing the power we do have. We go through Hell in various forms. At work. In relationships. In bed. On the street. We learn about living on through death and being the proof there is life after death because we are still standing.

It may be dark but it's meant to be. 
We're meant to be facing our fears which turns back on the Lights.
