The Power of Scorpio to evolve
As a Soul Astrologer and a Scorpio woman I get vexed how misunderstood the sign of Scorpio can be. Growing up I was loathe to tell anyone I was born under this sign as the response was usually one of “oh- you have a sting in your tail” as they withdrew.
Scorpio has 3 symbols and the scorpion is just the starting point. This is the sign that represents evolution and transformation. I call it the sign of the shaman.
As a Scorpio I am now proud to say I have faced and healed many Shadows and dark stories in my life. I really don’t have a sting in my tail!
I have met shamans on Psychology of Vision trainings in British Columbia, Canada and felt honoured to count them as true friends.
Yesterday I honoured my power totem – the Eagle- and created an altar with an eagle feather in pride of place. It was given to me in 1997 in Vancouver by a First Nations woman.
Do you have a place in your home where you can create an altar that honours your power animal, deity or Goddess?
This post is a call for you to connect with your power as planets move through this powerful sign.
Transit of Mars into Capricorn
Now Scorpio’s co-ruler Mars is exalted in the sign of Capricorn, embracing our power becomes the focus of the month.
Mars forms a positive alliance with Venus and the Sun this week, giving us the strength of will to conquer personal battles.
The Sun and Venus also align with Neptune for graceful and transformational healing.
Scorpio has 3 symbols, the scorpion, the eagle and the phoenix.
It truly has the ability to transform and give birth to itself anew.
The eagle is a power animal in the native tradition. Power animals can be our guides and allies. The eagle is Spirit, and as a bird it flies the highest and has the most extraordinary vision.
- What’s your power animal?
- What are the qualities you wish to embrace at this time in your life?

We can inherit the traumas of our Ancestors
As this year is the anniversary of the start of WW1 we are remembering and honouring the past.
However, how many soldiers returned home traumatised?
How many families were experiencing grief at the loss of the young men and women who served and died?
Here are 3 excerpts of articles that prove that current day problems can have originated from traumas experienced by our grandparents.
“According to the new insights of behavioral epigenetics, traumatic experiences in our past, or in our recent ancestors’ past, leave molecular scars adhering to our DNA.
Jews whose great-grandparents were chased from their Russian shtetls; Chinese whose grandparents lived through the ravages of the Cultural Revolution; young immigrants from Africa whose parents survived massacres; adults of every ethnicity who grew up with alcoholic or abusive parents — all carry with them more than just memories.”
Do Your Grandmother’s Experiences Really Make It Into Your Genes?
“You inherit some of your grandmother’s genes, but do you also inherit her experiences?
Our health is influenced by the experiences of our grandparents.
When our mothers were five-month foetus in our grandmother’s womb, we were already eggs in the foetus.
Many medical experts have observed that the womb is the source of health and illnesses. The health of our grandmother can influence the health of third-generation offspring.
It is often said that the first sound we hear in the womb is our mother’s heartbeat. Actually, the first sound to vibrate our newly developed hearing apparatus is the pulse of our mother’s blood through her veins and arteries.
We vibrate to that primordial rhythm even before we have ears to hear. Before we were conceived, we existed in part as an egg in our mother’s ovary.
All the eggs a woman will ever carry form in her ovaries while she is a four-month-old fetus in the womb of her mother. This means our cellular life as an egg begins in the womb of our grandmother.
Each of us spent five months in our grandmother’s womb and she in turn formed within the womb of her grandmother.
We vibrate to the rhythms of our mother’s blood before she herself is born. And this pulse is the thread of blood that runs all the way back through the grandmothers to the first mother. We all share the blood of the first mother – we are truly children of one blood.”

It also applies to men
From a programme on the BBC website:-
A new study published in Nature Neuroscience has shown that rats taught to fear a certain smell could pass that fear onto their offspring. Marcus Pembrey, emeritus professor of paediatric genetics, says it has implications for our understanding of the “nature versus nurture” debate.
Prof Pembrey told the Today programme “sperm can carry information about the ancestral environment or experiences, in this case the conditioning shocks of the grandfather.”
“Not only was the sensitivity to this very particular smell passed on to the son and the grandson…but also the changes in the brain, these particular receptors for that smell were passed on,” he added.
Dr Nessa Carey, author of The Epigenetics Revolution, said this inheritance “is potentially quite useful in evolutionary terms.”
Workshop- Healing your Shadow- Embracing Your Power
In our astrology chart I can identify your parents and your grandparents.
The 12th house is the womb, but also a couple of grandparents. The shadow or dark story can be a family pattern that is inherited, but lies unseen in our unconscious.
This coming weekend Nov 1st/2nd I am facilitating a workshop in London to help you connect with your power-and heal your shadow. These are the dark stories that we have that that hold us back from taking our place as leaders and visionaries.
If you’re not 100% successful and happy you may like to answer these questions:-
- If you were to know when did you first lose your power?
- Was it this lifetime or passed on through the ancestral line?
- Who was with you at the time?
- What was happening?
- On a scale of 0-100% how much of your power was lost?
- How much have you regained since?
Power relates to the 3rd chakra- our solar plexus and our centre. It’s also the 5th- our voice, our power to speak and be heard.
It’s time for us to regain our true power, and live our soul’s purpose.
A workshop is the fast track to heal an issue that could take months of therapy.
There are still a few places available on this workshop and each person will have a personal healing process.
This workshop is now over.
