Goodbye sweet, harmonious Libra, and hello to powerful, transformative Scorpio. Such a big shift in energy.
Here we have our water sign of the scorpion. We aren’t talking mere shallow pools of water…oh, no – we are talking about the deepest depths of the most powerful bodies of water. Scorpio has nothing to do with shallow. Scorpio dives deep, into the darkness, to emerge reborn to the world. Scorpio lives in the undercurrents of emotional waters.
Scorpio is the detective. They will get to the truth, no matter what. Even to the point of obsession. If there is something hidden, something secretive, Scorpio will find it and pull it up to the surface, if it’s the last thing they do.
There’s no time for small talk with Scorpio. Scorpio wants to know your soul; what makes you you, what you hurts and pains are, your joys and desires. Scorpio is our sorcerer; attracted to all things mystical. They themselves are mystical…and very secretive. Try to get to know a Scorpio, and you will have to know patience. Little by little, they’ll let you in, IF they feel like it.
So much intensity; they don’t want to scare you away, but they crave someone to know their intensity, to be ok with it, to be able to hold it and not run. That’s one of the truest gifts you can give a Scorpio.
They are they healers of the zodiac. They came here to sit with those that are going through stories of grief, pain, death, sorrow. They came here to be present while others go through the dark night of their soul…to hold witness and be a support as they teach healing and teach how to come back from grief to be transformed…over and over again.
They are ruled by the planet Pluto – this is the planet of transformation. That is their function this lifetime – to go through waves upon waves of transformative experiences. They will have gone through so much this lifetime, they are then able to turn around and hold/heal others as others go through their own journeys.
Scorpio is strong, it is the sign of power; silent, resilient, power. Silent, because they are the non-verbal feeler.
Sexual experiences are spiritual experiences for Scorpio. If you’ve ever had a Scorpio lover, you will feel their intensity in love and sex. Scorpio’s life lesson is to learn and live emotional honesty. Letting go of control will be a life-long journey for them, and not something that’s comfortable. It’s safe here, Scorpio.
If you love a Scorpio, honor their deep emotions…let them know you will not run away by the intensity with which they share their feelings…IF you are so lucky to be one they share with. Show them how safe it is here, in this world, to surrender and let go of control. Lead them gently back from the underworld and show them how beautiful it is in the light.
…and it was morning as Spirit stood before her twelve children and into each of them she planted the seed of human life. One by one each child stepped forward to receive his appointed gift:
“To you, Scorpio, I give a very difficult task. You will have the ability to know the minds of men, but I do not permit you to speak about what you learn. Many times you will be pained by what you see, and in your pain you will turn away from Me and forget that it is not I but the perversion of My idea that is causing your pain. You will see so much of man that you will come to know him as an animal and wrestle so much with his animal instincts in yourself that you will lose your way, but when you finally come back to Me, Scorpio, I have for you the supreme gift of Purpose.”
…and Scorpio stepped back into place.
