In transformational astrology, planetary energies change throughout the year for a reason. Every time the Sun changes signs we move into a new 30-day cycle where new issues and circumstances rise to the surface that provide us with tools to help us transform ourselves into well-rounded individuals. Further, since the planets are always moving (called transiting in astrology) every year a different dimension of the sign is activated or made more prominent.
On October 22, 2012 the Sun will move out of diplomatic Libra and enter the intense waters of Scorpio. In Kabbalah, the story of Noah’s Ark is always read around the time we move into the most intense of signs (the New Moon either before the Sun enters Scorpio or directly after). Noah’s ark is a story about the world being filled with evil destructive people and a massive flood that destroys the planet. Of course, Noah being the most righteous person of his generation (as well as his children) takes two of each creature onto an ark and survives the intense deluge.
The story of Noah’s Ark is more than a children’s biblical story — its roots are much older and go back to Gilgamesh in Sumerian mythology. The real lesson behind Noah’s Ark has to do with the flood and its life giving (human beings need water to live) and death dealing qualities. In this case, the water is a symbol for the purification of our “inner negativity” and to bring particular poisons to the surface in order for us to deal with them in a constructive rather than destructive manner.
While the Sun is in the sign of Scorpio our toxic poisons (dysfunctional behaviors) will rise to the surface. We are given an opportunity to purify and cleanse them from our lives – just as the waters purified the earth from the negative actions of a generation. It is recommended that we take some time to figure out the areas of our lives where toxins are prevalent. This is not too hard to figure out since they will be made apparent while the Sun moves through the sign of the Scorpion. Once the toxins come to the surface and we work to the remove them from our lives, we will notice that our lives will be sounder, more productive, and more serene. Once we work past our personal garbage, we receive a rainbow of potentials and opportunities that are there once you work towards your personal pot of gold.
