Full Moon Reflection in Scorpio

Keynote:   “Warrior am I, and from the battle I emerge triumphant”.

Oh, what a lovely war!~ growled through gritted teeth, is our likely response when struggling up the Path of Return to our divine source, climbing the sheer cliff of the passage of Scorpio, the toughest part of the ascent to the ‘mountaintop of initiation’ in Capricorn.  Initiation brings release from separation, from imprisonment within matter; into the freedom of spiritual livingness and  joyous connection with all life. It confers freedom to live as a soul and to serve that One Life.

The war is that between matter and spirit; between body-personality and soul. Warrior I am, and from the battle I emerge triumphant is the keynote of the soul in Scorpio, the soul becoming finally the disciple of those who have themselves triumphed, and who now help to oversee human evolution. It is the war to govern the lower impulses; to despatch the nine-headed Hydra which confronted Hercules as it confronts all disciples at this point. These heads are: Sex, physical comfort and money on the physical level; Fear, hatred and ambition on the emotional level; Pride, separative-ness and cruelty on the mental level.

The process is part of building our individual span of the antakharana, the rainbow bridge, the electric connection with soul and higher mind, and the greater Lives. When this bridge is built and alignment has been achieved:~ [T]hen there is a direct inflow of divine energy and [those struggling upward are] linked in a new and creative manner to sources of divine supply.

(Bailey, Alice, Esoteric Astrology, p. 197) So it is worth persisting!

It’s the war of humanity’s present crisis, particularly as the issues pushing us to the brink of ecocide are clarified: selfish and materialistic exploitation versus care and stewardship of Gaia’s life and lives. Humanity, the world disciple, is now confronted with the choice, in Libra, then in Scorpio comes the battle to implement that choice and make it a reality.

It’s the war waged by all of us who seek the spiritual life, after long aeons experiencing immersion in matter. We rise out of the collective unconscious state of the masses in Cancer, and individuate in Leo. And ripen eventually into materialists likely to believe there is no cause of life beyond random matter. In Virgo “there is evidenced a slowly emerging soul vibration, indicating that hidden spiritual life of which the Virgin Mother is the fore-ordained custodian. (Bailey, Alice, Esoteric Astrology, p. 22)

Turning from earthly desires, we step onto the path of return, because we finally become sufficiently conscious to respond to the higher energies.

These energies play down upon humanity from solar and cosmic sourcesThere are “rainbow bridges” being forged everywhere within the whole, carrying the sevenfold energies of the seven rays from planet to planet, from system to system, and from plane to plane on cosmic levels.  It is over these bridges that the will of the related spiritual Identities is projected, for it is via the antahkarana that spirit works, that life processes are controlled, and the will of all developing aspects of Deity function.
