In the Astroshamanic Binary System Sun in Aries (1) and Moon in Scorpio (8) constitute Binary 1.8, or Binary number 8.
Sun in Aries and Moon in Scorpio blend Cardinal Fire and Fixed Water, mixing Aries’s diurnal Martian assertive qualities with Scorpio’s intensity and nocturnal Martian features.
Powerful, passionate, forceful and charismatic, this binary has the ability to push through visions urged by a relentless drive for regeneration. It motivates most audacious pioneers, fascinated by the ardent desire to unveil the unseen and to cause deep changes.
This is the model of the shamanic warrior, walking on the edge between life and death, with the constant awareness of death tempering his being and promoting clarity of intention. Ruthless, patient, determined, resolute and impeccable in all he does, he operates with intense motivation tenaciously carrying out his healing goals.
This binary can be too intense for ordinary reality, unless its fiery and stormy passions find expression through arts, theatre, sports or any visible creative endeavour. For 1.8 life is an overt drama and when luminous dramatisation shines on its path and goals, accomplishment is guaranteed.
Aries and Scorpio are in quincunx aspect, an angle of 150°, which is five-twelfths of the 360°. This aspect tend to cause slides into parallel universes affecting what happens in everyday reality. With Aries and Scorpio the influence can be sporadic, yet rather intense and extremely passionate, causing instant arousals of fiery energies and emotions.
Qualities: charisma, commitment, courage, integrity, passion, power, regeneration, relentlessness, self-worth, sincerity, tenacity.
Grievances: cruelty, distrust, fanaticism, narcissism, vindictiveness.
The phase of Full Moon begins two days before and ends two days after exact Full Moon or opposition (180°) of Moon to Sun, hence it also encompasses the quincunx (150°) when the Sun is in Aries and the Moon in Scorpio. This is the final stage of the Full Moon leading to the next phase, the Disseminating Moon. The Full Moon is an active and highly charged moment. It represents the apex of the lunar cycle. Its function is to bring balance. The aim of the final part of the Full Moon as it moves in Scorpio, is to allow this balance to take place by deep and uncompromising release of pent-up emotions, especially in relation with the traditional themes of Scorpio, such as death, sex and whatever is hidden, known and unknown. It is essential at this stage to be aware that what is released is collective, ancestral energy, which can only be liberated if you let go of any personal identification. The ego personality cannot manage to hold this awareness and as a result constantly represses, denies or projects it. In this moment it is essential to involve the environment with your Intent and it would be ideal to practice such release with other like-minded people. Whatever happens in the visible world around you represents a reflection of the way you have dealt with your Intent. This is an invitation to be aware of what happens. The question is: “What can I do to create balance between the outer and the inner, myself and others, the Intent and the Function?”
The combination Aries/Scorpio is the model of spiritual warriors, walking on the edge, with the constant awareness of death tempering their being and giving clarity of intention. Living each day as if it were the last, they operate with intense motivation bravely carrying out all goals.
This couple can be too intense to manage in ordinary reality, yet when their stormy passions find expression through arts, or other creative and luminous endeavours, their healing force appears unlimited. Life here becomes a luminous dramatisation shining on whatever it meets.
Sun Aries and Moon Scorpio follow the apex of the Full Moon in Libra. The aim at this stage is to find balance by releasing deep emotions, often related with Scorpio themes, such as jealousy, resentment, betrayal, sex and whatever is hidden and secret. It is essential here to be aware that what is released is collective, ancestral energy, which can only be liberated if we let go of personal identification.
Dealing with heavy emotions can be unpleasant, yet the healing work involves releasing them, without accusing anyone, including ourselves, burning them so as to bring light and warmth in the darkness. Letting go of negative emotions is a natural cycle just as our physiological functions, we only need to do the work at a suitable place and time. This lunar stage can be like an emotional laxative. It can cause some turbulence, yet later we will feel liberated.
“We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know ‘THAT IS LIFE’!”
(Charlie Chaplin, born with Sun in Aries, and Moon and Ascendant in Scorpio)
Astroshamanic Seal: A vertical line with one triangle above and one below, pointing upward and downward, which is a spear, with an oblique double-cone. The vision involves a wild being emerging from a crater, yelling in rage, he raises his hands to the sky, sending out his shout of war. From the sky a spear descends, which he grabs. He flies with an eagle, reaching a sacred circle where he grounds the spear in the centre. From the centre he extracts which was pierced by the spear. It is a spiral, a galaxy, a black hole. He lifts and moves it clockwise . He masters the lower world and make it available to the middle world. The spear has two spirals, below and above, moving at high speed. This is the power operating in you, which you can use for the Intent. The Guide extracts a Graha and give it to the Wolf to eat.

Forma il ligustro, ogni altro discolora,
Soletto e umil tra selve si riposa,
8E inculte siepi vagamente infiora.
Oh immagin di virtù, che tanto puoi
In gentil cuore! a te sia mite il gelo,

Anzi risplendi nuova stella in cielo,
E di te canti il vate, onde tra noi
14Più non s’invidia l’aurea cuna a Delo.

Journeys to Akir Wayah:
I registered my intent in the Spirit Circle and travelled to Al Kirware Proport. It was night time and the whole place was deserted. A beautiful orange moon was hanging in the sky.I met the same PDB Captain as on the previous journey and set a restore point. An Agent approached me and told me he would accompany me throughout the journey. We got into a silver hover car and began the journey to Azureyth. Leewer [the PDB Captain] as me not to speak and we travelled there in silence. It was utterly dark and I had no idea what the terrain was like we were moving through.
The destination was reached and I saw a circle of large bare trees lit up by hidden spotlights. Leewer told me all had been prepared and that I was enter the circle, state my name and intent and proceed with holding the Basic Ritual of the Sacred Cone. I understood the location to be called the Sacred Cone Dedication Centre.I moved into the centre of the circle and did as I had been asked. As the first stage began, first one then many kangaroos moved into the light. They were soon joined by old men in white robes with white beards and then by a mass of different human figures all wearing bright clothing. I drummed and the crowd began to dance. A large snake appeared and moved through the mass of bodies. It seemed to be an honour to be knocked over by it. I began to feel very breathless and invited the snake to help me. It came at me with speed, reared up and sank its fangs into my chest, each one puncturing a lung. A cloud of gas poured out through the holes and I experienced some kind of relief. The snake disappeared into the shadows. One of the human figures rubbed a paste into my chest.As the second stage began, the circle cleared and I was left alone with Leewer. I slipped into a powerful chant which continued until the end of the stage. We stood at opposite sides and began to run around the inside. We ran so fast that sparks were flying up off our feet. A groove in the soil was created and we sank down to about 2 metres. I felt much expanded and experienced a blissful feeling that was also painful and made me feel sick all over my body. Leewer caught me up and pulled a zip at the back of my neck. I noticed she now had my own face, complete with a healthy beard. My human skin fell away and I saw that I now wore a skin tight blue material. I had also become completely transparent. As we began to move again the sides of the groove began to light up with millions of blue capillaries. I understood the energy being created was feeding the local landscape. When Leewer caught me up again, she disappeared inside me and I experienced a deepening of the painful bliss. I felt afraid yet heard Leewer’s voice encouraging me to endure and develop the quality of discipline through acknowledgement. I was then joined by the rest of the group. We began running around the groove skipping with joy and laughter. I felt such loving support and was grateful for the presence of such friends. Everyone apart from Franco then also disappeared inside me. Franco was joined by a number of small figures who were wearing conical hats and bright colourful clothing. They too eventually moved inside me.As the third stage began, I returned to the surface of the circle and the groove disappeared. I became restless and then saw Leewer again. She told me to be patient and to allow the quality of patience to flourish within. The crowd came back out of the shadows and one by one, touched me on the head, or brushed against me with their bodies. I felt a deep connection with them and laughed out loud with gratitude. I understood that I was The One – the one who could live the challenge of my own life. A spirit of the trees, made of bark and leaves, appeared over me, shaking a rattle. He told me I was fully entitled to the gather the strength needed for this work and feel supported with my endeavours. I moved amongst the crowd and each person I touched became luminous for a few seconds. Leewer than advised me to move out of the circle, into the surrounding landscape, to share what I was experiencing. I understood I would run all the way back to Al Kirware Proport. As I ran through the night, the darkness was total. At one point, I sensed I was standing over a deep pit which I shouted into.As I reached the Proport, Leewer came beside me and told me she would always be available as a source of support. I thanked her and we embraced. On returning to the Spirit Circle, I connected with the Guide and moved to hug the Great Tree. I offered whatever was in excess within me to the Centre and then concluded the journey. (DM)
