Welcoming Scorpio SZN ;)
by The Ad Astra Team
Sun in Scorpio is a sign that embraces intimacy and transformation. Take this time to dive deep, shed your past self and let go of old skin. Our ritual? Shadow Work.
Shadow Work, popularized by psychoanalyst Carl Jung, is the process of exploring our inner darkness or “Shadow”.
Through diving into the parts of you that have been rejected or repressed, you bring these parts back in through acceptance and integration. Until we undergo this process, we may continue to attract people and situations that are projections of rejected parts of us. Shadow work is letting go of who we think we should be so we can become who we actually are.
Jung once said, "Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
A good place to start with shadow work would be to think of someone who bothers you, and reflect on what it is about that person that might also be within you.
A few questions to ask yourself:
- What is it about this person that I don't like?
- Do I find that I have some of those same traits sometimes?
- What makes it so difficult to be around them?
- What parts of me does that person bring to life when I'm around them? And how do I feel about that part of myself?
