Metaphorcast 11/1-7, 2021
A New Moon in Scorpio emerges this week on Thursday, November 4th. New Moons are darkened nights of tidal risings, as feelings rise and communicate things to you in a private way. Inner truths swim about waiting to be discovered. In Scorpio these truths have to do with power, and what that means to you on a personal level. Opposing the New Moon is the Great Awakener, Uranus. Travelling through Taurus, a ‘great awakening’ has been happening since 2018, and it has to do with finding stability. At the most basic level this stability is body-wisdom. It is knowing who you are and what you like. It is a sense of self-possession and composure; a prerequisite to power.
As any James Bond movie shows, power and composure go hand-in-hand. Just think what would happen if Bond ever leaked out a nervous laugh, or went back and forth with his decisions. Inner-consistency and power are two sides of the same poker chip.
Consistency is key when it comes to a steady flow of power. Whether it’s a signature style, (shaken not stirred), or a habit of treating people with grace and decency, power needs a steady framework where it can move around with a charged velocity.
If this steady framework isn’t true to who you are, your power won’t flow freely. Call it your values, your taste or your authenticity, this knowledge comes from the inside. When things from the outside world inspire you, it is because your body-wisdom is responding with a resounding ‘yay’. The trouble sets in when you look to others’ yays and nays to inform your own set of values. Your powers become scattered. Your wits are no longer collected. Now it is other people that hold the power instead of you.
Bond would never let that happen, and neither should you! Your composure, whether maintained or regained will introduce you straight back to your power if it is true to your values. Your values are informed from the inside. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to feel your power by keeping in touch with what really matters.
Happy astro pondering!
