The center of light and dark
A time to pause, reflect, and assess.
The moon is waning in Scorpio and stands in the center of light and dark asking us to pause, reflect, and assess.
Scorpio is a fixed water sign. Its energy is mysterious, emotional, and intense. It has a need for deep involvements and transformations.
Pluto rules Scorpio, representing our capacity to transform and renew ourselves in an emotional and spiritual rebirth. Together Scorpio and Pluto can influence us to investigate what is really going on.

What are the tarot cards associated with Scorpio?
Death represents Scorpio in Tarot
Death is a card of transition suggesting release, change, and transformation. Occasionally Death is represented by a phoenix and its rebirth from its ashes re-presents conversion of energy instead of loss of energy. Death calls for release of old habits, patterns, and relationships.
The image XIII Death is from The Dark Goddess Tarot by Ellen Lorenzi Prince. La Santa Muerte, the Mexican Goddess of Death says "Death is the destiny of life". She also asks for you to see the truth of the habits that get in the way of building a better life for yourself.
Judgement represents Pluto the planetary ruler of Scorpio in tarot
Pluto the planet of transformation, death, and destruction teaches that endings are part of the cycle of rebirth and resurrection. Judgement is a call for decision making, compelling us to release what no longer fits.
The image is XX Liberation (Judgement) from The Dark Goddess Tarot. Persephone, Greek Goddess of Resurrection who says "the past is not forgotten, yet life begins anew." She reminds us that there are two worlds. The spiritual and the mundane, the real world and the other world. We walk them both so give each their due.
The King of Cups
The King of Cups represents Fixed Water in Tarot as is the modality and element of Scorpio
Fixed Water is the embodiment of Scorpio. In tarot it shows up as being perceptive and analytical, smart and sensuous, while craving deep connection on an intellectual and emotional level. There is an understanding of the ebb and flow of time and cycles of transformation and rebirth.
The image is Hag of Water from The Dark Goddess Tarot. Ran is the Norse Goddess of the Drowned. She says "Surrender to the sea to find her secret places." She reminds us that deep in your soul, you know where you belong, and where you do not. If you do not act on this knowledge, do not expect relief from your difficulties.
