“Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.” James Joyce
Recent studies show that when we have a passion for an activity, be it a sport or a hobby, we will not only engage in that activity on a regular basis – and perceive that outlet as something that we highly value – the activity will also become an inherent part of how we define our self.
Also, when we have what is described as a “harmonious passion” for something, we are more likely to be able to regulate this passion, internally, and hence, add to our feeling of well-being, which can positively impact other areas of our life. Too, a flip side here: when we have an “obsessive passion,” or a passion that starts to control us, then any positivity that we may get from engaging in this activity, tends to quickly evaporate – and this passion can actually end up creating “ill-being,” and interfere with our other life activities.
I mention this here today because we are still very much in the range of the “bull’s-eye” of yesterday’s “intense” Scorpio Eclipse, the astrological sign that is the prototype or template for “passion.” It is in fixed, water-sign Scorpio where our emotions can quickly morph into, seemingly, almost an almighty, indomitable force – for good or bad – and, right along with this, our passions. Especially, our romantic passions! And, perhaps, especially now, with Venus, the Goddess of Love, also swimming through the seductive waters of Scorpio, alongside the Sun.
The Moon remains in Scorpio, all day, today, and becomes especially REVVED UP, this afternoon (2:16 pm EDT), when it sextiles “regenerative, redemptive” Pluto, the modern-day Ruler of Scorpio. Moon-Pluto aspects often show us how to resuscitate something; how to breathe life back into what was once, perhaps, perceived of as dead, bust, or simply a lost cause. Moon-Pluto can be very healing, at its best. Also, this type of energy can help us to locate lost, hidden, buried, or missing items. It is thought to be excellent for any kind of investigative work – including espionage or spying! Maybe we need to retrieve the binoculars and that old sixties trench coat from storage! :)
Question for Today: What are you most passionate about and how does that passion affect your everyday life?
