We’re down to our last couple months of Jupiter in Scorpio and before it bids this sign adieu to head into its natural domain of Sagittarius, there’s a central theme to be discussed regarding what this year-long passage has meant for us. Jupiter in Scorpio brings transformative growth into our lives, but it’s at the expense of letting something else die off. Perhaps we’re letting go of an old way of life, a belief, or experiencing some kind of massive metamorphosis. This is, in some ways, traumatic by nature because nothing is the same afterward and we need to hold space for this sense of loss by appreciating the enormity of it all. Relating this to an animistic perspective, the caterpillar doesn’t quite know what is happening when it cocoons off to become a butterfly; it just has the visceral instinctive sense that something monumental looms on the horizon where it simply cannot stay stagnant in its current incarnation any longer.
Back to what this means for us humans from an experiential standpoint, the common thread is how this Journey can seem overwhelming or scary in parts. We’re likely discovering some powerful core Truths about ourselves through this process and though not all of them are pretty, being honest about our Shadow/Lower Self is crucial if we’re to reap the biggest benefits this transit has to offer – metaphorically, it’s a lot like cave exploration. To this end, for those so inclined the therapeutic process can be a huge boon in this regard; particularly as the final sextile between Jupiter and Pluto culminates between now and mid-September. Bless that which is leaving or has left your life during this astrological passage, be grateful for the powerups aiding in this transformative growth, and prepare to receive an expansive sense of true freedom-of-movement courtesy of those new wings you’ve spouted by cooperating with The Process. 🐛🦋
