All About Scorpio

All About Scorpio

(October 23 - November 21)

With the symbol of the Scorpion, you’re as deadly as you are small and unassuming. As a Scorpio, your self-defense emerges in the form of strong emotional awareness -- you have an innate sense of what you and other people around you are feeling.

Scorpio is the only horoscope sign that has three animal totems. The Scorpion has an active tail, but as the Scorpio masters its passion and holds its instincts at bay, it changes into the Eagle, with more perspective, who can fly above the rest and make more conscious decisions. The Eagle then becomes the peaceful dove. Thus, the real meaning of Scorpio is about metamorphosis. Scorpios transform their poisonous passion into a higher consciousness based on universal love.

Your motto might be "What is hidden is more interesting than what is obvious." You are the detectives of the zodiac. While your magnetic personality draws others in, you are very secretive -- because you’re so intense, you don’t want to scare off others. You desperately want to have someone to merge with your feelings, but often withdraw in love. Sometimes you would benefit by looking at the positive side of things rather than going into the darkness.

The Scorpio element is Water

Astrologically, the Water element symbolizes emotion. Water runs deep; it seeks its own level and will flow until it has found it. The cycle of water is endless, as the snow falls into the mountains and melts into the streams. The mountain streams join to make the great rivers that run to the sea. The tides and currents churn the oceans. Similarly, our feelings are flowing as they connect the present with past experiences. Sometimes the waters are so deep that we cannot find words for our feelings.

The Water of Scorpio is fixed and frozen, but it is a mistake to think that ice doesn't flow. It does flow -- and with great power. Think of a glacier, moving so very slowly, yet with enough force to flatten a forest or even
a mountain.

Horoscope house: 8th

Since the 2nd house is the House of Possessions, the 8th house is the opposite, focusing on what other people have. This can include sexual issues, for they usually involve another person. It is also about the ultimate transformation -- death -- but not necessarily your own. It could be said that the 8th house is what we don't know and what we cannot understand. It is surely a House of Hidden Power.

Scorpio's key planet: Pluto

As the key planet for Scorpio, Pluto is intense and powerful, representing those things that we don't or can't understand. It is from these hidden Plutonic spaces that magical transformations arise. Your curiosity spans a wide range of topics.

Pluto is the Lord of the Underworld. If this sounds scary, it demands a bit more explanation, for Pluto symbolizes everything that is beneath our consciousness. This isn't about the Hell where we are punished. Rather, it is the Hell that William Blake describes as a place "so beautiful that it would torment an angel
to insanity."

Your greatest strength

You are passionate about your feelings

Your possible weakness

You isolate yourself because of your need for secrecy
