If you love somebody set them free.
Scorpio times and full moon in Taurus tomorrow Nov 17th. I´ve seen in my near environment power struggles and frustration the last couple of days. I´ve also seen problems concerning money. Scorpio rules others money, and Taurus your own possessions, among those…money :p
Yes there are common traits between the opposite signs Scorpio and Taurus. Both Scorpio and Taurus energy can turn controlling and possessive if not channeled correctly. Taurus possessivness is mainly expressed through the need to control material possessions, but Taurus energy can also turn into jealousy and possessivness in relationships, all depending on how you see the people in your relationships- as humans simply, or as material possessions.
Scorpios need for control, when in unbalanced state, is residing more on the psychological level then the material. The control of emotions, since Scorpio is a watersign – emotions.
These are also passionate times, although the full moon is in earthly Taurus, the sun is still in passionate Scorpio. Passion is good as long as we keep away from possessive behavior. When we believe in the illusion that we own something and can control it, it easily turns into obsession. What we have to realize is that we really don´t own anything, especially not people. You can think that u own material things and the “things” won´t care because they don’t have emotions and they don’t care if u think that u own them or not, but as soon as you think u own somebody or that you have the ability to control someone or a situation in a relationship you´ve slowly started killing the love. Love is an energy , it needs to circulate. It can´t be controlled, it will die then.
Anyone who´ve seen the great and famous movie (a book from the beginning) “Mice and Men” knows what love and controlling acts can do to people and situations when it´s mixed up. Although this is an a little bit extreme example I´d like to use it.
Lennie in the movie is a goodhearted but mentally disabled man who has a thing (a strong thing) for stroking soft things, so whenever he sees something that appears soft to him he has a strong impulse to stroke it. Not at all in a sexual way though. But this urge of him puts him in many difficult situations and even deathly (Scorpio) in the end. (Sorry for ruining the movie now if you haven’t seen it :P) One incident for example: He meets a woman with a beautiful dress very appealing for him to stroke. The woman tells him that he can also stroke her hair if he´d like to. He does that but then she tells him to stop because she thinks he is only messing up her hair. But Lennie doesn´t understand easily because of his handicap. She starts screaming in panic and this makes Lennie even more scared and in panic over making her to stop scream it ends with him killing her, breaking her neck in desperation and confusion. A very sad and touching story.
These Scorpio and Taurus times made me think of this movie, themes like love, death, control and also confusion. For Lennie desperate acts of trying to take control of situations finally killed what he loved. What I want to say is that fear and control is always, always related. The fear of losing control can drive people to the most insane acts weather they are mentally disabled or not.
During this full moon think about what your relationship to possessions are. What is possessions for you and how do you value them. Do you let material possessions own you or do they serve you?
Do you let the love in your relationships flow freely or do you try to control the flow? Scorpio times are times of metamorfos (transformation). Remember that the butterfly was first a caterpillar.
You can also meditate over the lyrics in this song of M. Carey
“When you love someone so deeply
They become your life
It’s easy to succumb to overwhelming fears inside
Blindly I imaged I could
Keep you under glass
Now I understand to hold you
I must open my hands
And watch you rise”
