In the Astroshamanic Binary System Sun in Capricorn (10) and Moon in Scorpio (8) constitute Binary 10.8, or Binary number 116.
10.8 (Sun in Capricorn and Moon in Scorpio) is a mélange of cardinal earth and fixed water mixing Capricorn’s order, perseverance and responsibility with Scorpio’s intensity, determination and power. This is a very potent, devoted and loyal binary, endowed with a most grounded structure, capable of conveying meaning simply through a state of being and deep inner awareness.
Unlike other Moons in Scorpio, this configuration can be less charged and far more cooperative with the Sun, if we take time and space to acknowledge what is going on in our life at a deep yet pragmatic level of awareness. Hence, it would be wise to abstain from interactions that could trigger tensions for one or two days, especially in the realm of personal relationships. The focus is on consciously assessing, releasing, completing or reconfirming any process involving considerable amounts of emotional and physical energy. During the Capricorn cycle we budget the whole year ahead, and when the Moon is in Scorpio, we deal with what we need to let go of and redirect towards conscious objectives, which will become probably clearer in one week, with the New Moon.
Sun in Capricorn and Moon in Scorpio are in a sextile (60°) aspect, which involves two complementary signs, sharing the same polarity (negative), yet not the same element. The binary can work harmoniously and offer significant opportunities as long as there is awareness and clarity of intention on both sides. These two signs do not usually enjoy a conventional popularity, since they incorporate many features of the shadow sides. When the shadow side is accepted and seen as part of the web of life, Capricorn and Scorpio unveil most luminous and loving resources.
When the waning Moon is in Scorpio at 60° from the Sun in Capricorn, the phase of Balsamic Moon, or Waning Crescent Moon, starts. It is a crucial receptive phase, a time of healing and rest, yet also of intense preparation and completion. Here you prepare for a new cycle, the next New Moon, and let go of the residues of the old. What is mainly needed in this phase is a work of release and forgiveness. It is easy at this stage to feel restless, excited or willing to change everything and start doing something totally new and unpredictable. Yet, until you learn to release what hangs on from the past, you will never truly create anything new. The question here is: “What do I release? What do I take in the next cycle?”
Astroshamanic Seal: a triangle with a vertical ondulation within emerging at the apex as a straight line with a circle on top. Vision: I find myself by a large mountain. I enter into a cave and I begin to climb inside the mountain. I am surprised to notice that there is a path inside the mountain, which is indeed more direct and central than the one outside. It is like a huge ladder and is certainly the fastest way to the peak, though it is hidden and not obvious. Inside the mountain it seems like being underground, and I am actually underground! The amazement comes when I reach the peak and I find myself in the open air, above everything, in the highest possible point. A second ago I was underground in what appeared to be lowest point and then I find myself in the highest. Upon drinking the potion I immediately sense the inner force of the mountain. I see its inside and what is not accessible to the majority of people.
10.8 is just this. I then go to the centre inside the mountain and receive its energy, which I then feel beating within my heart. From that space a huge determination emanates and one’s yes and no becomes like immense boulders.
Astroshamanic Binary Guidance: Move along the inner darkness with determination, continue to climb through the darkness, heading higher and higher till you reach the peak. Then you will find yourself in the maximum light.

Celebrities with 10.8:
Henry Miller: born on 26 December 1891 in New York, with Sun in Capricorn, Moon in Scorpio and Ascendant in Aries (10.8.1), is a legendary HAC border zone character and one of the most controversial writers of the previous century. Most of his works were banned in the United States for obscenity and were smuggled underground for decades. His classics Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn describe Miller’s lives and loves as an expatriate in Paris. While in Paris, Miller also had a love affair with Anais Nin, which was documented by the latter in her diaries. Later Miller settled in Big Sur (California), becoming the prophet of an artists colony.
Please find below some quotes:
Whenever a taboo is broken, something good happens, something vitalizing. Taboos after all are only hangovers, the product of diseased minds, you might say, of fearsome people who hadn’t the courage to live and who under the guise of morality and religion have imposed these things upon us.
Whatever there be of progress in life comes not through adaptation but through daring.
What holds the world together, as I have learned from bitter experience, is sexual intercourse.
Whatever I do is done out of sheer joy; I drop my fruits like a ripe tree. What the general reader or the critic makes of them is not my concern.
The ordinary man is involved in action, the hero acts. An immense difference.
The real leader has no need to lead – he is content to point the way.
Every man has his own destiny: the only imperative is to follow it, to accept it, no matter where it leads him.
Instead of asking – “How much damage will the work in question bring about?” why not ask – “How much good? How much joy?”
Moralities, ethics, laws, customs, beliefs, doctrines – these are of trifling import. All that matters is that the miraculous become the norm.
No matter how vast, how total, the failure of man here on earth, the work of man will be resumed elsewhere. War leaders talk of resuming operations on this front and that, but man’s front embraces the whole universe.
No one asks you to throw Mozart out of the window. Keep Mozart. Cherish him. Keep Moses too, and Buddha and Lao Tzu and Christ. Keep them in your heart. But make room for the others, the coming ones, the ones who are already scratching on the window-panes.

Binary Programme 1 – Pahekarubhe 1: 10.8, 110199
Meeting with Sauter Kitaya Sadoh (SKS), Totem Spirit of Sector 10, associated with Saturn.
I address SKS as follows:
“I thank you for being present together with all the Guides. I stay silently connected with you… I acknowledge the work you have done so far in order to preserve the access to the holy treasures of the Sacred Circle. I thank you for having carried out with extreme care this work.
Now the time is ripe for a change. A new structure is needed so as to prepare the new phase of the work. I intend to clarify with you what programme is to be implemented. You know very well the Intent that animates me and I ask for your advice.”
In the meantime several Kiteri (inhabitants of Sector 10) gather, while in the centre SKS appears in her female form, and says:
“My treasures are accessible for you and I am at your service regarding what you intend to plan and manifest.”
I respond: “Please help me retrieve the memory. My self is often confused.”
SKS replies: “In such situations all you need to do is to connect with me and release of your old way of being operative. This way was given to me and it is this way that you intend to change. In front of you have SKS. Patiently let go the last remnants of your old guardian. Let him operate behind you so that whenever there are unauthorised components trying to reach the treasure, he can operate. You know the key.”
“How can I continue to the work with astrology?” I ask
SKS replies: “You need to operate with a lot of simplicity, identifying the essential elements to which you can firmly adhere without further distractions. During the winter you will reach such understanding and you will need to stop so as to employ the related material without getting scattered. Avoid useless readings and accessing too much information. The information that truly matters is available from within. And you know how to access it.”
“Please give me details about the Graha, in its root form.”
SKS: “The name of the root, which I hold in my hand is grah. You hold it tight with the left hand and then allow its three components to be released. You lower it towards the earth and then you lift it towards the sky. Whenever you find yourself in a situation that threaten the treasures, employ the root and holt it tight, Use grah when you notice that the sacred space is in danger. Grasp grah and SKS will come to establish boundaries and barriers for the invader. He will pronounce a firm NO and will create walls around the sacred space. Experience your NO with commitment. Take responsibility for your NO now.”
I address Urai Sadoh, the Middle World Guide, who provide practical details on how to exemplify the NO. The first and second NOs apply to relationships and access to conventional media. The third NO is shown to me by SKS through a stone book. This is about not taking any decision before having connected with the sacred space and the Guide.

In Quiumakai, first outpost of the lower world, I find myself by a large mountain. I enter into a cave and I begin to climb inside the mountain. I am surprised to notice that there is a path inside the mountain, which is indeed more direct and central than the one outside. It is like a huge ladder and is certainly the fastest way to the peak, though it is hidden and not obvious. Inside the mountain it seems like being underground, and I am actually underground! The amazement comes when I reach the peak and I find myself in the open air, above everything, in the highest possible point. A second ago I was underground in what appeared to be lowest point and then I find myself in the highest.
Here I receive the potion and I immediately sense the inner force of the mountain. I see its inside and what is not accessible to the majority of people.
10.8 is just this.
I then go to the centre inside the mountain and receive its energy, which I then feel beating within my heart. From that space a huge determination emanates and one’s yes or no becomes like immense boulders.
