As you probably know, Aries is the first of the 12 months of the zodiac. As the first, it is the seed level of all that will unfold throughout the year.
Sixteenth century Kabbalist Rav Isaac Luria explained the specific technology of this month is that the first 12 days correspond to the 12 months of the upcoming year. For example, the first day corresponds to the months of Aries, the second, Taurus, the third, Gemini, and so on.
Our consciousness and behavior on these 12 days actually create the experiences we will have in the months ahead. These 12 days, then, are a time of testing, and they contain opportunities to transform ourselves and to carve out a new destiny. It is as if we have a 12-day cosmic window to “walk through the fire,” so to speak, in order to bring the world and ourselves to a higher spiritual vibration.
As Rav Berg once said, “During the month of Nissan (Aries), we must expect arguments and conflicts, which are simply opportunities to reveal Light. The negative side will do everything in its power to prevent us from using the tools at our disposal to control our destiny. But we will not be trapped. We shall elevate and confront the responsibility entrusted to us.... We have a duty (through our spiritual efforts) to turn on the Light, and whoever is not capable of loving his enemy should at least act with human dignity towards him.”
Day 8 - Scorpio: April 8, 2014
With their powerful emotions and keen intuition, Scorpios have an incredible ability to “dive deep” into situations and into the unseen world. While this ability can make a Scorpio magnetic and intuitive, it can also make him or her prone to fears and jealousy.
Scorpio is controlled by Mars, a strong and determined planet whose energy grants Scorpios the capacity for incredible certainty. Even as children, they can be so driven that if you put them next to a wall, it’s as if they have the power to climb straight up it. At the same time, Mars also grants Scorpio a powerful desire for control, which can make them overbearing and oppressive in situations and relationships.
A Scorpio’s incredible strength is to stay on course and to achieve what they want to achieve—whatever the cost. The problem is that sometimes they don’t stop, no matter what that cost might be.
