Scorpio’s motto for this season is “Eat, Prey, Love”. Devour, indulge, seduce, capture, and prey upon the creative endeavors we’ve been pushing aside for the other boring Earth pragmatic tasks in life. This time, right now, is screaming for us to break the molds and to dig deep. What parts of our shadows are seeping out like honey, sticking to every part of our existence? Why not turn that medium into a comb of personal expression? Scorpio creativity is not about how useful it will be. That comes later with sagittarius igniting the truth found within into ation. Scorpio is about the transmutation of what we reject as ugly, unsightly, and unworthy into the powerful energy of gold.
What herbs help you tap into that creative potential? Perhaps flower essences of Indian paintbrush and passionflower help to open up stagnation (common with unbalanced scorpio). Mugwort can bring dreams to the forefront of the imagination. Oak chips and damiana force us to ground deep into the heart space, asking our core nature to speak. What practices allow you to settle into the discomfort of the shadows?
