The Gate of the Eagle – the Sun at 15 Scorpio
Yesterday, the 7th of November, marked zodiacal Samhain as the Sun bowed down before the Avataric gateway 45 days before the Turning of the Seasons at the powerful Capricorn Ingress on the 21st of December.
The coming 45 days for those engaged in spiritual practise is the time to turn inwards and explore that which has clipped your wings. The Eagle symbolises that courageous process whereby you ascend through dimensional space and connect to the gOdhead. It is within that elevated state of consciousness that wisdom can be accessed and through the development of strength of will, you can retain the memory of that knowledge when you return to this physical plane for sustenance and integration. Yet this earthy plane has many distractors and anaesthetics that need to be confronted, allowing this liminal inspiration to drift, once again, back to the upper plumes.
The passage through this Gate marks the ‘balsamic’ process, a state of unfurling in readiness ahead of the Dawn, or new beginning. The Celts marked this gate by lighting fires so that those elders who wish to return to assist with their ethereal wisdom, could find their way. They were also lit for those initiates crossing the Veil, so that they too could find their way home.
So on this, the first day of the letting go process, the question is to what are you so emotionally attached that you are unable to find peace and therefore are kept chained to the Wheel of repetition? Know that the Eagle is present to guide you through the liminal space, as you seek to raise up your emotional body and find a higher expression of your heart.
The Turning is 44 days from today.
