Venus in Scorpio: The Thief of Sleep

Did you see yesterday’s eclipse in Scorpio? Did you feel it?  The Sun Venus and Moon are now together in the sultry sexy sign of Scorpio (Venus: until November 17th). Not only does the scorpion rule sex, death and taxes, she also takes us deep into the underworld to access what hides beneath the surface appearances of things.

This is the land of depth psychology and emotional transformation/rebirth. As Venus, planet of love and relating,  travels through Scorpio’s realm, she will access the shadow world of the unconscious . This is not the time for superficiality or getting caught up in what is trivial. This is the time to forge deep, meaningful bonds through soul-to-soul communication and true intimacy. Leave behind your faded old projections and shed those rigid, inflexible armours you hope will protect you. Venus in Scorpio asks us to be emotionally authentic as we continue the unfolding of our innermost self.

“This Venus is the embodiment of Sophia, of Kali, the creator and destroyer, in the guise of Black Moon Lilith, the primal female force of the universe. She resonates with all dark Goddesses, witches and shamans of the dark mystery. Her great magic is the power of regeneration through direct experiences of sacrifice, surrender, sexuality and mysticism.” Kelly Hunter


Love is from the infinite, and will remain until eternity.
The seeker of love escapes the chains of birth and death.
Tomorrow, when resurrection comes,
The heart that is not in love will fail the test.

From Thief of Sleep
by Shahram Shiva
The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere,
they're in each other all along.
