Sexy Scorpionic Stare Detailed in Song of the Day: “Bette Davis Eyes”

Sexy Scorpionic Stare Detailed in Song of the Day: “Bette Davis Eyes”

One of the most iconic pair of eyes to ever grace Hollywood belonged to a woman with Scorpio Rising. Her eyes were dramatic, full of overwhelming sentiment, challenging, intimidating and yet vulnerable. She was Bette Davis … an actress known for her feistiness and sensuality (Like most Scorpio Ascendants). Davis’ Scorpio traits were compounded by having her Moon and Pluto in the 8th house, conjunct! Both Scorpios and Scorpio Rising people are known for their expressive portals to the soul. They are known for their stares and come-hither looks. Yes, it likely twas Scorpio energy that gave birth to the term “bedroom eyes.” If a Scorpio man or Scorpio woman likes you and launches a hunt, that pursuit will almost always include eye seduction … with prolonged glances so magnetic they could put you into a hypnotic trance. Singer-songwriter Kim Carnes, a Cancer sun, crafted a song about that very scenario in 1981 to pay tribute to those Scorpionic eyes.   Wow. Kim Carnes really captures what it feels...

Rough Scorpionic Love: “1 +1” by Beyonce

Rough Scorpionic Love: “1 +1” by Beyonce

  With a Scorpio Moon and Venus conjunct Pluto, Beyonce, a Virgo Sun, often embraces songs that celebrate a Plutonic brand of love:  rough, contentious, lustful and extremist. In her song “1+1”  (listen below), she expresses the quality of her undying love for her man against a nearly apocalyptic backdrop that compares love & being loved to: being shot receiving a healing balm in the midst of war being the one thing to stop her from balling up her fist in angst and to the sole possesion that makes death and loss endurable. Well, isn’t that just …..lovely? The metaphors are stark and dark — so much so that they are achingly beautiful in a Scorpionic sort of way. Forget the harsh imagery of bombs and fists and forget the use of profanity to emphasize the love. Nothing is more harsh than her vocal delivery. Beyonce forces this song out and gives it rough edges. I remember when I first heard this song, “1+1” and I was struck by...

Plutonic Love Lessons from “Every Breath You Take”

Plutonic Love Lessons from “Every Breath You Take”

Are Plutonic people obsessive and stalkerish? (You bet).  And this song is a great anthem. On a lonely, bitter night punctuated by a fresh break-up,  “Every Breath You Take” was written by a man with Scorpio’s ruler Pluto on his Ascendant. Yep, the introspective and obsessive Sting, a Libra Sun, has Pluto rising! His first house Pluto is also conjunct Scorpio’s second ruler, Mars. (Sting is an honorary stinger, so to speak). Perhaps that’s why he used his personal experience to perfectly craft a gripping classic about obsessive love, heartbreak and stalking – oh, let’s just say the song is about Scorping. The character in the song is what I call a scoper (and don’t you think the difference between the words “scoping” and “scorping” is quite negligible?). Scoping — the ability to watch, investigate, probe and basically X-ray another person’s life is a Scorpio specialty. According to a 1983 interview given by Sting and chronicled on his website Sting.com, the songwriter said of the title: “I woke up...

The Stinger Movie Review: “Seven Pounds”

The Stinger Movie Review: “Seven Pounds”

An ode to love, sacrifice, remorse, and altruism, Seven Pounds earns 7 of 8 stingers — not so much for the acting of its leading man, Will Smith, a Libra, who skates on the surface of a very complex character, but for the emotional guts to dramatize a controversial story that will leave you moralizing, judging, and heaving a bit from sorrow. The following review rates the movie on 8 Scorpio interests: Warning: Contains Mild Spoilers 1. Defiant Characters– Protagonist Ben Thomas, played by Will Smith, is driven by the suicide principle — which some have called irresponsible and cowardly. He is driven by the thought that he can accomplish something by killing himself. I’m not telling you what exactly he wants to accomplish, but you can easily figure it out from the reviews and previews. A drama like this is not really about a plot twist. It’s really about the journey of the psyche. And that is what you must seek here. I’ve never been one for absolute...

The Stinger Movie Review: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

The Stinger Movie Review: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

This movie starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett gets 6 out of 8 stingers. The Stinger movie review rates a film’s appeal according to 8 Scorpio interests indicated below. Overall, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” ends as a compelling portrait of love and loss but sags in the middle due to shallow plot development, excessive narration, and an over-reliance on the aging backward schtick for an exhausting 2 hours and 48 minutes! The Big 8: Warning: May contain mild spoilers! 1. Love Story – The love and devotion between Daisy (Blanchett) and Benjamin (Pitt) had me weeping by the end of the movie. She somehow looks beyond his body to see the real person he is trapped inside, giving him one person who “gets” him. And he cares for her when she suffers her own physical tragedy. They love each other in all the ways it is possible to love a human being: as child, as friend, as lover, as parent. It is an engulfing love that made...

Lunar Scorpio Beyonce tackles Plutolicious depression, drugs, and self-destruction in new movie chronicling Etta James

Lunar Scorpio Beyonce tackles Plutolicious depression, drugs, and self-destruction in new movie chronicling Etta James

(Originally Published November 2008)  Beyonce Knowles, who must buffer her Scorpio Moon with a diet of Prozac and syrup, tries to tackle the painfully passionate Plutonic character of Etta James in December’s release of “Cadillac Reocrds,” a movie partially chronicling the raspy- throated Aqua who seemed tortured by her Pluto-Sun, Pluto-Venus, and Pluto-Jupiter oppositions. A huge Adrien Brody fan, I am apprehensive about Cadillac Records. I confess I’m a bit tired of biopics and, once an enthusiastic Beyonce admirer, I’m a bit disappointed in her lack of musical evolution, continuing to gyrate to empty lyrics rather than muster some real substance that would befit her as a lunar Scorp and an artist. I doubt she can pull off the cinematic mirror of an emotionally volatile and wounded alleycat like Etta James. I love Etta. And when I’m in one of my Scorpio spirals downward, I lock myself away with dim lights, rum, and ultra melancholic playlists including songs like “I’d Rather Go Blind” by Etta, and of course the...
