Witnessing You: The Scorpio Brand of Intimacy

Witnessing You: The Scorpio Brand of Intimacy

 Scorpio is the most intimate sign in the Zodiac, — but do not mistake intimacy for just sex and conversation. The word “intimate” has lost meaning. People use it as a euphemism for sexual contact or sharing between confidantes. And it is those things, but intimacy is above all a very penetrating level of knowledge. A Scorpio wants to know you, yes in the biblical sense, but also in every way it is possible to know a human being. And that requires an unnerving and uncomfortable level of inspection and fishing for details. Of course, they seek your love, your sex, your trust, your loyalty, but all that is achieved during the course of Scorpio’s true ambition: the pursuit of the complete knowledge of you. A Scorpio wants to know you when you are naked in every way, without pretense, propriety or protocol. And they will do everything they can to strip you emotionally, psychologically and physically in this great pursuit of intimacy– whether you like it or not....

The Phoenix Complex: Surviving Scorpio’s Death Instinct

The Phoenix Complex: Surviving Scorpio’s Death Instinct

The Pluto Death Drive For Scorpio Death must Precede Life   Sigmund Freud, a psychologist born with Scorpio Rising and an 8th house Moon, coined the idea of the death wish – – the drive that pushes people toward self-sabotage and suicide as they work against their own best interests, figuratively and literally killing themselves. In the world of astrology, the death wish expresses itself as the Pluto Drive.   Pluto, the planet of death and transformation, gives Scorpios the penchant to hurtle toward catastrophic experiences, behaviors and people that cause them to suffer soul death and bodily harm.  If Scorpios do not pursue this destruction themselves, it will find them; they will attract it because the shadow realm and the harms associated with it are drawn to Scorpios —  even the innocent ones.   Other sun signs have nothing comparable, although 8th housers and very Plutonian people might relate on a milder level to the Scorpio’s destructive drive. Everyone, at least once, experiences a loss so keen it...

Mars Vs. Pluto: The Battle To Dominate Scorpio

Mars Vs. Pluto: The Battle To Dominate Scorpio

Mars and Pluto co- rule Scorpio, suspending the 8th sign of the Zodiac between the principles of self-determinism and fate. Mars — the planet  associated with  self-initiative and self expression — gives the Scorpio man and Scorpio woman an overwhelming need to self-assert, to be self-made, to carve their identity out of the stone of opposition with nothing more than their self-reliance and will power. Pluto is quite the opposite, endowing Scorpio with belief in forces beyond self; Pluto is linked to psychic energy, cosmic connections, astrology and the unseen mystical world, to which Scorpio turns to receive instruction from Destiny, Fate and the Great Unknown. Pluto is the reason that Scorpio won’t move an inch without receiving a sign,  feeling, hunch, intuition or sixth sense to give them confirmation before deciding something important. Fate and Destiny — the opposite of Martian self-will — is of distinct interest to Scorpio over all the other Zodiac signs. Scorpio sees harmonizing with Fate as a mystical and spiritual occurrence.  It is...

Understanding Scorpio’s Need for Solitude within a Relationship

Understanding Scorpio’s Need for Solitude within a Relationship

The Scorpio man says “I love you” and then ignores your calls for two weeks. The Scorpio woman spills her deepest secrets and then goes ghost and acts like your increasing intimacy was just an illusion. What? How did a promising duo, suddenly become a solo?! Scorpios require extreme amounts of alone time where they withdraw from everyone into complete solitude, yet they need to bond deeply with people. Seems like a paradox, eh? Romantic mates of Scorpios find this seemingly contrasting need to attach and detach to be rather maddening. How can a sign that aches deeply for intimacy and bonding suddenly cut off contact and go underground? Pluto’s in charge, honey. Pay attention. Scorpio’s zodiac ruler, Pluto, operates a life and death cycle in all the affairs of the Scorpio. This closeness and alienation are a part of that. The cycle allows Scorpio to regenerate. It almost always follows some extreme sharing or loss that has depleted Scorpio’s emo-energy. Any time there is intense intimacy, there is...

Scorpio & The Mask: Hiding in Plain Sight

Scorpio & The Mask: Hiding in Plain Sight

  The Pluto energy that rules Scorpio is famous for secrecy and privacy, giving Scorpio an anxious desire to fly under the radar. Enter the Scorpio Mask. The Scorpio mask is not about being sneaky, although for less evolved Scorpios that can be the case. Masks for Scorpio are about concealing the most essential parts of self from the public so that they can be shared only with the chosen inner-circle. Scorpio men and Scorpio women do not believe that everyone has earned the right to access the real them. Scorpios do NOT exhibit themselves the way Sagittarius or Leo people do.  Scorpio exhibition is private and rare, meaning that whenever you are gifted enough to glimpse it, the experience is precious and captivating. Even if a Scorpio seems extroverted, people are often only seeing the mask Scorpio wants them to see. Yes, sometimes a mask can be a jovial persona.  Personality, accessories, clothing, alter egos, and certain physical behaviors might all be employed as masks for the Scorpio....

Stung! How and Why a Scorpio Stings a former Lover or Friend

Stung! How and Why a Scorpio Stings a former Lover or Friend

Ahh. The Stinger. No other zodiac sign is represented by an animal with such a fatal defense mechanism. The Taurus bull has its horns, the Crab can hide within a hard shell, perhaps the Leo can rip your leg off — although they prefer repose to revenge- but the Scorpio can kill you by poisoning you from within. The inner realm of the emotions and the psyche are where a Scorpio’s sting hurts the most — by design. The Capricorn goat might want to kick you in the nuts, but Scorpio doesn’t care about inflicting physical as much as internal pain that can last much much longer. Why a Scorpio Stings Scorpios aren’t sadists. They don’t sit around dreaming up ways to cause others pain. Scorpio, however, is a sign of energy exchange. Scorpio gives more energy in a relationship than any other sign. When they like someone and merge with someone, whether friend or romantic mate, the Scorpio gives intense thought, intense loyalty, intense inspiration to improve that...

The Scorpio Woman: Her Influence on Feminism & “Masculine” Femininity

The Scorpio Woman: Her Influence on Feminism & “Masculine” Femininity

Masculine Femininity. Is that an Oxymoron? Welcome to the Scorpio female psyche. Scorpio-influenced women are the bitches of the Zodiac. These boss bitches get stuff done, change the world, put men in their place, and make sure women know they don’t have to be second class citizens. For all the transformative influence Scorpionic women have had on society and culture, they are still maligned as being ball-busters, nut crackers, she-males and just plain witches! But where would the world be without their moxie? Scorpio women do not approach the world like the rest of their gender, a point made popular by an oft-repeated (and stolen) line from astrologer Linda Goodman’s book “Sun Signs”: “Scorpio women were not born men, they only wish they were.”– Linda Goodman. Not really, Linda. But I get the point. Scorpio women negotiate life through values and perspectives that have historically been associated with men. Power, aggression, dominance, control, hunting, initiating — these are all traditional male traits. Yet, Scorpio women wield them with uncanny...

Scorpio Sexuality Explained: What is this Scorpio sexuality Astrologers Rave about?

Scorpio Sexuality Explained: What is this Scorpio sexuality Astrologers Rave about?

Even to the layperson with no background in astrology, the term “Scorpio” is synonymous with sex. What is it about sex that Scorpio natives like so much? Is it the emotional fabric of the mingling? The passion and abandon from a persona otherwise introverted? Is it merely appetite and stamina? Is it the opportunity to fulfill their predilections for extremes with the dark arts of sex: S & M, danger, and provocation? Or is the sexuality of Scorpio merely mythology? The 7th Sense: Scorpio and Sex Most people erroneously think Scorpios simply like to have lots of sex… that they can’t get enough. The reality is — yeah all that — but mostly that sex is sort of a 7th sense to Scorpio, used  for receiving and transmitting feedback to other life and spirits. It is a holistic sense they use to respond to the world around them. Many things can make a Scorpio native feel highly erotic. Sometimes a stimulating  conversation can make a Scorpio want to tear...
