It’s a day after transiting Sun went over Saturn in Scorpio. How did you feel? I remember reading that this transit would give us good idea of how Saturn’s passage in the sign of the Scorpion was going to be like. While no transit of Saturn is ever a party, in this sign it is going to feel intense. Of course. The next two years or so also have the north node passing through Scorpio and if your natal north node is there, you’re up for your nodal return. A life changing transit this. But more on this Saturn transit and the nodal returns later. Those are posts in themselves.
On a (questionably) lighter note, I just saw the trailer for the new Bond movie: Skyfall. It was first released in the UK on 23 Oct 2012, the day the Sun swam into the deep still waters of Scorpio. I haven’t watched the movie yet, but the trailer dialogues are very Scorpionic:
M: Where the hell have you been?
Bond: Enjoying death.
Many astrologers have said that Saturn in Scorpio will exhume secrets.
“THINK ON YOUR SINS,” flashes ominously on M’s laptop screen as I’m sure it’ll flash on our psychological ones as well.
Line from the movie:
Man to M: Three months ago, you lost the drive containing the identity of every agent embedded in terrorist organizations across the globe.
Then there is a scene where M is standing alone in a room full of coffins.
Line from the movie: They weren’t targeting her. They wanted her to see it.
Scorpio transits can bring to life our biggest fears as realities. Death, sex, transformations because of intense experiences. It’s heavy stuff. Another scene from the movie:
Pretty woman: How much do you know about fear?
Bond: All there is.
Pretty Woman: Not like this.
But we always need to remember that this sign ruled by Pluto is one of transformation. Rebirth. Yes, there is death. But what is death but a change in form, a change is energy? Scorpio is associated with the Phoenix, the bird that rises again from its ashes. I really like this dialogue from the movie. It echoes the psychological death and rebirth that this sign is associated with:
Bond: Everybody needs a hobby.
Bad Guy: So what’s yours?
Well said, 007, Scorpio approves.
