The portion of the week is Toldot, in which we see the birth of two opposing forces: Esav and Jacob. We all have opposing energy inside, just like this week in which two energies as different as that of Scorpio and Sagittarius come together. We must decide which energy we will allow more strength and how to get the best out of each.
We are in the last days of the month of Scorpio, and we must take advantage of what this energy has to offer. Reflection and analysis are beneficial; take some time to learn from past mistakes. If we use this moment well, we can create balance that will benefit us in the future while eliminating what is not good for us and what no longer serves us. A good cleaning or detoxification is the perfect way to do this, be it with relationships or with material objects. The point is that through reflection and learning, we can reach a higher consciousness that allows us to let go of the old attitudes that no longer serve us, especially in this controversial month.
Scorpio is deep, intimate, intense, and above all, emotional. It draws basic instincts from the depths of each of us, such as control, jealousy, envy, revenge, and manipulation. In this month, we can see and confront this rather hidden part of us, as it helps us reflect and change. Although it may seem difficult or even impossible, one of Scorpio's great gifts is the power to transform. Controlled by Mars and Pluto, Scorpio is executive and tactical, full of desire and beneficial energy to make profound changes. So let's take advantage of these last days with all they have to offer.
The month of Scorpio is normally experienced in an intense way due to the same momentum of the sign: possessiveness and crisis, but also passion. There will be a tendency to seek control and power, to experience deep emotions, and at the same time to remain hermetic since Scorpions find it hard to be vulnerable and open up to share what they feel so deeply.
This year, the energy is intensified by the position of the lunar nodes, which draw a line between what is recommended and beneficial and what is not recommended and marks a possibility of loss. The South Node is in Taurus and shows us the way to go in this case, which is precisely the opposite of Scorpio: balance, harmony, rootedness, and stability. These words define Taurus and the energy that will be beneficial during the time the nodes are in this position. The nodes are like magnets that attract and capture us and, everything intensifies more if we are influenced by the energy of Scorpio. So we need to be careful throughout the year, but more so these days when we are still under this influence. The South Node leads us to be hyper-sensitive, take everything personally, control, manipulate, and be extremist and out of balance. More than ever, we must use the tools of Kabbalah, such as restriction and above all, moving beyond the astral energy because every time we fall into the negative aspects of the sign of Scorpio, we directly feel the consequences.
Adding to the effect of the nodal position, there were two eclipses this month: a solar one, precisely in Scorpio, and a lunar one in Taurus. These days we continue to experience the effects and consequences of these eclipses. The most affected people are the natives of Taurus and Scorpio; however, eclipses affect us all, and we can feel an energy of tension during this time. Some of the consequences of the solar eclipses are confusion and lack of direction. On the flip side, from the lunar eclipses, hidden things come to light, and we can feel instability.
We have a planet that plays an important role in the energy we live in these days: Uranus in Taurus. It is important because the forces of both signs are intensified, and with the position of Taurus in the North Node, a relationship of tension is created. This means that these changes will be beneficial, but Taurus rejects change and enjoys his comfort zone. The cosmos demands this change, so adapt as quickly as you can and step out of your comfort zone. Being flexible will save you a lot of wear and tear right now.
In the middle of the week, the energy changes from intense Scorpio to optimistic Sagittarius. On Tuesday the 22nd, the sun reaches Sagittarius, and on Wednesday, the lunar cycle begins, known in Kabbalah as Rosh Chodesh Kislev. What is important to know is that this month these two astral movements occur on very close dates. However, it is not always like that—they are two different aspects. According to the Gregorian calendar, the entrance of the sun into a sign marks the change of the zodiac signs. That determines a person’s sun sign. The beginning of the lunar cycle, which is the path that the moon has in relation to the sun, marks the kabbalistic months, each one starting with a New Moon.
We will feel the entrance of this new month with all this different energy. The change is going to be very forceful. We will feel a rise in optimism and positivity. As we saw before, this year, the energy of Scorpio will hit us, while Sagittarius will feel like a relief.
Rav Berg taught that we can take control of the energy of the entire month during a New Moon because everything that will manifest is found in the seed. Rosh Chodesh is the best time to plant new beginnings, be it a project or an activity.
As for the days of the week, Sunday and Monday are wonderful days to strengthen our relationships. Everything related to beauty, group activities, as well as diplomacy, and harmony are favored. Tuesday and Wednesday are days when we seek more privacy and intimacy. Thursday and Friday are excellent days to travel, go outside, and play sports. These are days of optimism and good humor. Finally, Saturday and Sunday are days where seriousness and responsibility reign; confronting authority is not recommended. It is an excellent time for planning, setting goals, and achieving objectives.
