Asteroid Psyche stations retrograde at 26 Scorpio this weekend. She brings focus to a deep journey with the next frequency of emotional maturity and how that expresses in relationships and intimacy.
Any planet in Scorpio calls us explore what lies beneath our apparent reality – our true motivations, deep-seated angsts and resentments, the core truth. Scorpio is a penetrative sign. It can be cutting, even ruthless, in its intention to divulge emotional honesty. It’s a sign of great emotional resourcefulness yet can fail to recognise or acknowledge, that truth must be paired with heart to be most effective.
In the final stages of her mythological journey Psyche is given a box of beauty that she must take to Aphrodite, Greek Goddess of Love, without looking into it. Yet she is curious and cannot resist opening it herself… it was an apparent failing, yet in truth, was the claiming of her agency, her maturity to claim the fullness of love.
Key focus with this Psyche retrograde in Scorpio (19 March to 5 July) : What new gift of agency is calling you, particularly within your closest relationships?
