Scorpio seeks the truth and deeper meanings to life’s various stages. You may feel you want to spend more time alone to reflect on the emotional body. The New Moon requires release of bitterness, jealousy and rage that may have been buried from past hurts and/or manipulations. The Eagle, Phoenix, and the Scorpion symbolize Scorpio. The Soul is furthering its’ journey to sour with the Eagles and rise from the ash like a Phoenix to start fresh. Ancient wisdoms result from adversity and hardships to teach tolerance and maturity.
