I used to read the Horoscopes in the daily paper when I was a kid and already was picking up on some kind of mystery vibe around Scorpio. My mother was a Scorpio. I’m a Cancer Sun.
Once I finally learned that there was more to the chart besides the Sun, I was disappointed to discover that I only had Neptune in Scorpio, which is generational.
BUT THEN when I found out I had a prominent, 1st House Pluto (conjunct my Virgo Moon) I was, for a moment, relieved.
And eventually I began to understand that a Scorpio Sun presented differently than a Scorpio Moon or someone with a 1st House Pluto or a Sun Pluto aspect or a Moon Pluto aspect.
(Side issue: I do find that people with a packed 8th House remind me of either 1. Moon square Pluto or 2. Moon in Scorpio.)
I was talking to a Sun square Pluto friend on the phone yesterday and sharing with him my thoughts on the generation of Sun conjunct Neptune in Scorpio people. How Neptune had Neptuned, had mystical-ed, mystified some of the killing/thriving edge of Scorpio nature. That they seem more confused to me than Scorpios from other generations. This is also the Uranus Pluto conjunct generation. There’s something about us…. I think we stay lost longer than others. Maybe that’s a better word for it “lost” more than “confused” although it can be both.
Not saying these folks don’t achieve but… my generation really does seem to wander longer, eternal students (not that I judge that at all), or toiling away at crappy jobs for way too long and seething with anger on the inside for decades.
I think Sun conjunct Neptune in the natal can really leave a person feeling rudderless. It’s like… how much inner work can one man do? You go inside and inside and inside and inside and inside and then what? It can be hard to move forward when your head is permanently in the clouds and Neptune can do that to a person.
And ya know, side issue but not really, when I think about Saturn in Scorpio I think about loyalty, how collectively we will be questioning what is and isn’t worth it, what we are willing to let go, what we are willing to let die.
Saturn is the work we must do, lessons to be learned, Saturn is time, timing, Karma, but also fear. We will come face to face with what we fear about getting close, closer than Libra and its emphasis on making nice.
Scorpio wants it real or not at all (that’s the ideal anyway). And Saturn sets a limit so imagine Saturn in Scorpio conjunct the generation of Sun-conjunct-Neptune-in-Scorpio people. Feels like a cosmic WAKE UP.
With Saturn in Scorpio we will be compelled to REALLY make it real especially in the house of our chart where he transits. AND YET we will feel limited in how far we can go. Like, every which way we try to penetrate? Nope. Not here. Not now. Not yet. Hold on. Gimme a minute…
Talk about the big squeeze… Scorpio can be very all or nothing and Saturn says STOP.
But, says Saturn in Scorpio, if you can get clear about what your inner Pluto needs and you do the work? Then you’ll be reborn. Reborn as you. You, free.
