Every so often I am asked what I mean by the term “reverse magnetism,” as in “if chances to reverse magnetism present themselves, by all means do so.” Today we’ll take a brief look at magnetism
We all have all the signs in some combination in our birth charts. Each sign expresses its unique energy within the field of the All, the 360 phases of experience. Scorpio is that phase in the Whole Cycle where we look at what we have attracted to us and decide if we want something else. It is also where we cast off forms to go deeply into energy itself.
As each planet transits Scorpio it helps us eliminate those planetary patterns we no longer want nor need. That sort of radical detachment forces us to examine our desires, what we want and why we want it.
In the example I gave yesterday, Venus in Scorpio can also help us eliminate Venusian patterns we no longer want nor need. That’s because Venus attaches to things, while Scorpio forces us to see what we cannot hold on to. Saturn in Scorpio helps us eliminate Saturnine patterns that no longer serve our evolution wherever it falls in our charts. Many rules, responsibilities, ambitions, and personal limitations are being re-evaluated during this time.
Also, remember we’ve all learned a lot about magnetism, loss, gain, regeneration, and “holding the empty space” during the time that the North Node (NN) has been in Scorpio since September 2012. At that time the energy of our collective line of greatest growth (NN) through understanding how to “do” Scorpio energy was kickstarted by Mars in Scorpio, followed by Mercury, Saturn, the Sun, and finally Venus, extending the planetary conjunctions with North Node in Scorpio energies through mid-December.
Even though Saturn was very wide from the NN during the 2012 inner planet conjunctions, these served to “collect the light,” preparing us for this year’s transits that will express the larger Saturn conjunct NN in Scorpio larger influence. Last year, Venus was the last of the inner planets to transit Scorpio. This year, Venus is the first to conjunct Saturn and the North Node.
This year, Venus is followed by Mercury and the Sun. Like 2012, Mercury will be retrograde in Scorpio, giving us Mercury Retrograde reflections about Scorpio energy and the many ways magnetism works in a roundabout fashion. Regardless, we’re certainly all going deeper, feeling more intensely, and searching for experiences beyond the form of things we’re perceiving.
Because our line of greatest development deals with the deep and intense feelings of Scorpio, it requires that we get clear about why we feel what we do, and eliminate unhealthy feelings that only magnetize discontent and disharmony to our mind and feelings. This means understanding what drives the attachment to the desire that has magnetized what it has.
This also requires that we learn the playing field and the tools at our disposal so that we can eliminate unhelpful magnetism and “hold the empty space” so that we attract only what is in our highest and best interests. Control of the desire mind is an absolute if we are to feel like we’re driving our vehicle rather than us feeling driven by that which seems beyond our control.
Our energies are constantly in flux, and we’re constantly exchanging energy with our environment, including others, whether directly or indirectly. We learn patterns around energy exchange from our earliest days, and tend to cling to those patterns, whether they are serving the need of the moment or not.
Our magnetism attracts certain things because of preexisting patterns, both in the subconscious mind and the self-conscious mind. Our desire mind is a very strong part of our mechanism, even though it is frequently misguided and draws things to us that lead to pain rather than pleasure. That’s why reversing magnetism requires examining how our desire mind works, and redirecting its magnetic energy to that which is in our best interests.
That means if you're feeling against something, instead redirect the feeling toward something positive. If you feel stuck in "cluelessness," then "get a clue," i.e., go learn something about whatever you feel clueless about.
It also helps to get some perspective. We must take a long look at the deeper meaning of our narrative from a life-long perspective, and how we got to where we are. Once we have some perspective from seeing a bigger picture, then we can ask whether certain feelings are valid any more.
Then we can reverse magnetism by seeing that the more we eliminate the old magnetized thoughts, feelings, and actions, and not be too quick to fill that space back up with random phenomena, the more we will attract what our heart truly wants and needs. Then we have to translate those signals and understanding and manifestations into Life. As we learn the art of “reversing magnetism,” we see old patterns quickly shed and new manifestations of our heart’s intention come forth.
I believe the trick to a lot of this is to be joyous as we move through the fluctuations of existence. If we can turn Scorpionic discontent into conscious elimination of old habits in thought, feeling, and action that no longer feed our need for a deeper connection with ourselves and our Life, then we can choose those thoughts, feelings, and actions that serve our higher purpose.
We are all Living Eternal Centers of electromagnetic energy operating in the 12 “Frequency Zones of Human Existence” simultaneously. These 12 involve our Life in material, emotional, mental, and spiritual dimensions of existence as they play out in the fields of personal, interpersonal, and transpersonal experience.
That’s why as long as we’re in a physical body, we may as well stay open to learning all we can about these 12 areas of human life. There’s a lot of energy exchanges as we move and groove through the intersection of Fate Street and Freewill Street dancing down Eternity Boulevard. The art of Scorpio is to know when to let go with grace and elegance, turning to a deeper connection with the future as it comes forth in the NOW.
