Please note that the Scorpio/Pluto realms are truly not for everyone or perhaps it’s just not the right time for some and so you may feel the need to circle-back when you are ready, willing & able. For those of you who prefer to ‘keep it simple/superficial‘, Scorpio’s depth and complexity can be uncomfortable or even overwhelming to certain systems. So here’s my personal *disclaimer* ~ I LOVE Scorpio time! I live with Moon/Pluto conjunction which makes it personal for me and so I’ve learned to do what Castaneda calls ‘Keep Death as My Advisor or Companion’ throughout my life. I also believe you can never have ‘too much info‘ when it comes to Scorpio because it is the energy of *power, conception, creation & karma* and you never know what will unlock those areas of life for you. But you can see why some don’t want to “go there” – no judgment! Timing and having the space and tools is critical to self-healing and Soul Work. Use your own discretion, now & always.
Scorpio is our Soul Level, subterranean, interior realms that we often do not have the time, tools or resources to address in real-time, so we put our Soul needs on the back-burner. Some people avoid their Soul Work their entire lives. That’s okay. They are learning and researching other aspects of life and themselves. It’s all good. But for those of us that KNOW we came in (to this Earthly existence) to finally do some Soul Tending & Karma Clearing THIS lifetime, it is wise to sync-up with Scorpio time and check in with your own individual Soul needs & desires, at least on this annual basis, during Scorpio time.
I have learned in my 20+ years of research and doing readings & mentoring with others that – if you have any planets in Fixed Signs (Taurus/Scorpio/Leo/Aquarius) or if the Fixed Houses (2nd/8th and 5th/11th) are packed with planetary activity when you were born, then you are here to do some Soul Tending of some sort, this lifetime.
You will resonate with this need for
*Ongoing Soul Tending* this lifetime, if:
~ you feel that you are “different” than your
DNA/blood family (on any number of levels)
~ you feel that you are the one to finally break
a negative pattern in your family of origin
~ you feel that you have been learning about
power, creativity and self-worth this lifetime
If you’re still with me, then, my *DEEP Divers and Brave Souls* ~ this month is dedicated to YOU! IN-Joy!!
Scorpio asks: What does your Soul long to co-create this lifetime?
Pluto asks: What is your Soul’s Mission to transcend this lifetime?
SCORPIO by Susan Seddon-Boulet
There is a point of no return, when you finally COMMIT TO CHANGE so that you can live more authentically. This usually happens when you have crossed that line where you are more uncomfortable where you are – than you are fearful of where you’re going. Scorpio energy & lessons conjure so many visuals for me …
Phoenix from the ashes
Purification by fire
Sacrifice of the old to birth the new
Making the taboo Sacred
Death, rebirth & transformation
Exploring the Underworld
Delving deeply into the SoulSelf
The necessary clearing (Scorpio) so building (Taurus) can begin
It takes a tremendous amount of pressure, extreme temperature, and a certain amount of time for coal to transform into diamond. This time of year, as I cross paths with people in the world, I am always reminded of an analogy I learned from Wayne Dyer: Under pressure, whatever is INSIDE – comes OUT. He used the example of an orange. When you squeeze an orange, what comes out? (Juice) Does it matter how you squeeze it? when you squeeze it? what you squeeze it with? NO … it doesn’t matter, juice (what’s inside) is always going to come out. Right now, EVERYONE is feeling major pressure in one or more areas of life. The key is to extend the patience and compassion you would like to receive as you too navigate your own transformation.
Birth of a Star
Also, I’d like to remind you that all pressure is not necessarily a “dark or negative” thing. Some of you have amazing opportunities presenting themselves at this time and are experiencing the exhilaration of birth rather than death, but that new birth also brings a certain “pressure” that’s necessary to grow, develop, learn to shine and rise to the occasion so you can fulfill your potential in this moment. That too can be overwhelming and uncomfortable as you are still moving into the Great Unknown.
As you head in to this unknown territory (on one or many levels in your own life), here are some things (journal prompts) to seriously contemplate if/when they bubble to the surface …
Are your intentions pure? Are they from a place of Light?
What and why do you want to change?
How and when do you resist change?
What part of you has to be sacrificed so you can express another part?
What do you have to let go of in order to embrace something new?
What IN YOU is dying?
What IN YOU is being reborn?
Will you allow a necessary gestation period? Or birth premature?
Can you trust in Natural, Sacred Time – the Divine Timing of all things?
When and where do you feel most powerless? and most power-full?
When do you attempt to control that which cannot be controlled?
When do you surrender control & trust?
What are you gripping so tightly that you’ve squeezed the life out of it?
What part of you or your life do you think you just cannot live without?
I’m using this energy to initiate my new Soul Sisters Circle with the SCORPIO New Moon (10/27). I am seeding this new circle of women ~ calling in those who want to …
– go narrow and deep with their individual Soul Work and want to share in a community dedicated to healing
– get to know their own Inner Shaman thru ritual & ceremony
– learn more about the basics of Earth Medicine: (the Medicine Wheel, altar building, sacred tools, plant & stone allies, journey work, sacred circle protocol)
I recognize that I attract all walks of life, mostly in the Student/Teacher Archetypes because I too am an Eternal Student of Life. But for circling-UP – I tend to attract two distinct groups of women, those of you who are Beginners ~ just diving deeper into your own Soul Work, beginning to deepen your spiritual practice and awakening to the fact that soul work is ongoing. My Soul Sisters Circle is where you will be able to add to your *Magic Backpack* some new and basic Earth Medicine tools & practices because you are exploring what works for your own self-healing, education & transformational soul work.

I also have my Priestesses, Empresses, Queens, Alchemists, Mystics & Magic-Makers, Tricksters & Storytellers, Weavers & Poets, Healers & Advocates and those of you who already know what works and what doesn’t (for you) and you already have a few (or many) rituals and ceremonies that you like to do every year. You are the ones who want to strengthen the bonds you’ve already created with your sacred tools and you want to share magic-making recipes with a circle of infinitely diverse women from all over the world practicing *Pragmatic Mysticism & Practical Magic*.
The Soul Sisters Circle is my vision of space for us aspiring, future Ancestors, this is where we prepare to be our own Circle of Grandmothers someday! Together, we will gather to practice, grow, learn and share resources. Restoring the connection to Mother Earth will help our bodies adapt to the higher frequency of now.
I’ve always wanted a place to share *Magic & Miracles* and often, the brightest breakthroughs come from the darkest moments. Now I’m creating a space for this. If you light candles and do prayer work of any kind, you are already engaging in the most basic ritual of connecting to Spirit or the Light. I’d love to hear about your successes and when you perceive failure, I want you to be able to come to the Circle and be inspired to engage a little deeper and see what happens. As I said, I know some of you are just learning & exploring and not quite ready to jump on-board with ritual & ceremony but for those of you who are, please join us!
Kelly’s Firepit ~ 10.31.2017
What I’d like to do is host a FREE TeleCircle on FRI/Nov 8th to honor the Scorpio Gate of Power and the final season of the year prior to Winter Solstice. I will also talk a little more about the goal of the Soul Sisters Circle and open up registration to you first, my community, before I invite the public to join us in the new year. In a lot of ways, I’m circling-back to my roots in energy & magic-making. I love creating altars and setting intentions with EVERY new and full moon and I know some of you do too! or want to try it 😉 The idea is that we navigate an annual rhythm that pretty much repeats in the same way, throughout our lives. That’s the mundane part, but the mystical/magical part is that the sky pattern and alchemical mix of energies within us, together create infinite possibilities of weaving something new every year.
Most of you will recognize the monthly theme format, but I am also going to pick issues or areas to focus on each month that are unique to the energetic signature we are working with. So for example, we are about to initiate a new solar year at Winter Solstice, and the sky pattern of 2020 is going to allow us to work some very special mojo and create some powerful magical recipes for healing, learning and transforming our lives in real-time and TOGETHER! Since Snake is our Animal Guide for November, one special topic we can dive deeper into next month is those of us who are amidst the ever-popular process of *Shedding Skin*. More about that soon! If 10+ or more of you register and show interest in gathering on the 8th, I will let you know in next week’s forecast!
