You Want It Darker by Leonard Cohen

If you are the dealer
I’m out of the game
If you are the healer
I’m broken and lame
If thine is the glory
Then mine must be the shame
You want it darker
We kill the flame

Magnified and sanctified
Be Thy Holy Name
Vilified and crucified
In the human frame
A million candles burning
For the help that never came
You want it darker
We kill the flame

Hineni Hineni
I’m ready, my Lord

There’s a lover in the story
But the story is still the same
There’s an lullaby for suffering
And a paradox to blame
But it’s written in the scriptures
And it’s not some idle claim
You want it darker
We kill the flame

They’re lining up the prisoners now
The guards are taking aim
I struggled with some demons
They were middle-class and tame
Didn’t know I had permission
To murder and to maim
You want it darker
We kill the flame

Hineni Hineni
I’m ready, my Lord

Magnified and sanctified
Be Thy Holy Name
Vilified and crucified
In the human frame
A million candles burning
For the love that never came
You want it darker
We kill the flame

If you are the dealer
I’m out of the game
If you are the healer
I’m broken and lame
If thine is the glory
Then mine must be the shame
You want it darker
We kill the flame

Hineni Hineni
I’m ready, my Lord

Jupiter in Scorpio

 Here it goes!

Jupiter just entered the deep and dark waters of Scorpio for 13 months. Last time Jupiter was here was in 2005-06. We will see what will come out of this transit in the next several months.

Scorpio is a Fixed-Water sign.
Emotions and instinct run deep and are enduring here.

Jupiter’s transit in these bad lands will obviously be significant for anyone who has their Sun, Moon or rising in Scorpio.

Jupiter being the traditional ruler of Pisces and the ruler of Sagittarius also means that these guys will receive an extra dose of Scorpion juice in the next year.

Finally, if you have your Sun or Moon in any of the other Fixed sign (Aquarius, Taurus, Leo) you will also get acquainted with Guru Jupiter preaching out of these waters.
