In about six hours from now Mars will move into Scorpio. Venus is already there and, apart from a brief incursion into Libra during her retrograde phase, she stays in Scorpio till the first week on January, 2011. God Almighty!
I find planetary transits are a good way to get a feel of a particular energy. How do you like this one? Mars and Venus are both in my eighth right now. Blessed with a Sun trine Jupiter, I’m not usually given to jealousy or suspicion, but this transit is bringing a taste of what that can feel like. I don’t like it. It brings to mind this quote a Scorpio once made me learn by heart. From Othello, of course:
O, beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-ey’d monster, which doth mock
The meat it feeds on. That cuckold lives in bliss,
Who, certain of his fate, loves not his wronger:
But O, what damnèd minutes tells he o’er
Who dotes, yet doubts, suspects, yet strongly loves!
Nothing punishes us like passion, does it? What do you do about it? I just picked up this Edgar Cacye book I’ve been reading and came across this, “Not my will, but Thine, O God, be done in and though me.” Works for me 🙂
