If the Sun is a Great Ball of Fire, let's say the size of a basketball, then Mars is the power of the Sun compacted to the size of a golfball. Super intense and strong, Mars packs a punch. This is most evident during Spring (Aries), when the world is "teeming with life", and beginnings are thrusted upon us as life forces itself through the cold, barren, grounds of winter. This is the will in motion, and it is Mars that ensures we do what we are called to do in life (an afflicted Mars stops our will from exacting its force).
Yet the Inner Will is the seat of this forceful power, and here is where Scorpio enters. She starts at the base on the spine, and rises as a fiery serpent, up each vertebrae, through the Crown (top of the head), to eventually illuminate the Pineal Gland (this is the story of the Illuminati- this is how they become 'masterminds'- through mastering the Kundalini serpent, which is Scorpio). Once the Pineal is enlightened, our mind takes hold of this light and transmits it throughout the entire body via nerves, chemical compounds, etc... This brings purity to our visions and insights. Thus, Scorpio is the ultimate science of regeneration, healing, and transforming you life.
Scorpio is Transformation: our fears are mixed with our visions, so it creates confusion (literally, a cloud of fog that takes over your mind). However, she takes us on each twist and turn in life until we have overcome and mastered our fears. She works well with Saturn, the father of limitation and challenge (remember, Saturn was there for the past 2-3 years).
Scorpio is also joint finances and sex- both of these require vulnerability and openness with another. This is apart of transforming, in that we come here alone, but we must learn to be interdependent- not co-dependent, and not independent. Thus, Scorpio also requires us to master the fear of showing and being our Selves with other people.
Today is 11/11 and a new Moon in Scorpio, as well as the Sun being in Scorpio still. Scorpio is a fall position for the Moon, so it can bring a lot of emotional turmoil. But think of it as the Kundalini moving through the spine/tunnel/secret school of Self- it has to hit every bump and bruise on the way so that it can bring healing. It's a process. Those that have the day off, use it wisely, as you do your New Moon rituals. And don't forget your spiritual bath.
If confusion is a cloud, the Sun in Scorpio is a light at the end of the tunnel, while the Moon in Scorpio is a flashlight. But the tunnel is our own mind/our spine, and they way out is the mastering of Scorpio in our own chart.
