Scorpio: Hide and Seek Inspiration
Your sign is among the most intense of
all the signs. Change is hard for Scorpio, the only fixed
sign of the water signs. You are very determined and driven
by goals, but while persistence is your forte, flexibility
is not. Don't try to control too many elements in your life--recognize
that some events will have a life of their own. Your water
element makes you feel the impact of events deeply. Don't
take setbacks personally.
Among your talents is a sharp and shrewd intuition
which will help you navigate through turbulent waters. At
times "facts" may not jibe with certain hunches you have and
it will be hard for you to trust the hunches. Do it. You could
even be psychic or prophetic, "feeling" events around you
that are soon to happen. My late father was a Scorpio. He
knew he was highly intuitive and relied on it frequently in
making decisions. He strongly urged us, his children, to listen
to our inner voices too. This was surprising because he lived
in a time when men rarely saw themselves is intuitive or psychic--or
least didn't admit to it. Men of his era preferred to profess
their reliance on observable data. My father's instincts were
always accurate, both in business and in his personal life.
So, of course he was Scorpio!
Your sign, more than any other, has to occasionally
take time for themselves and be alone. Your Pluto ruler can
sometimes make you compulsive about your work, and if this
describes you, you need to let up a little. Your Astrologer
sees you on a very private estate, with high hedges for privacy,
a lovely garden, and, most importantly, a view of the sea.
(It's good to dream!) Remember, water is truly vital to water
signs, and it will be harder to recover your sense of purpose
without being near water. So go to the seashore, a lake, or
a spot with a river view to center yourself. Turn on the answering
machine; leave your cellular at home.
Mediation and prayer are good for Scorpio.
One Scorpio I know is Jewish but loved to accompany his woman
friend to Mass, for he found the rhythm of the prayers and
music profoundly peaceful. For this man, Mass was an ideal
place to think privately. There was never any question he
would remain devoutly Jewish. This makes perfect sense because
Scorpio is a deeply spiritual sign, and often has an understanding
and interest in other religions. Because their sign rules
the 8th house of birth-death cycles, Scorpios are closer to
life's beginnings and endings.
Slow, deliberate exercise such as yoga or t'ai
chi would be helpful to you, as well as any solitary activity,
like running (along the water would be perfect), bike riding,
speed walking, or lifting weights. Yours is a sign which likes
to compete with themselves rather than others, always reaching
for your personal best.
Quiet games of contemplation and skill would
be ideal for you too. Play chess or poker (good games of strategy
for discrete Scorpio) with a friend who can throw you a challenge.
You like mystery novels too. Spy stories where the fate of
the world hinges on the actions of one individual will relax
you, and provide you with a hero you can identify with!
One good way to slow down is by using personal
rituals, something your fixed, water nature responds to. By
ritual I don't mean an activity connected to religion but
one which you create spontaneously to punctuate an event,
whether it be happy or sad. Whether you lost a pet, got fired,
won a contest of skill, or want to ask your sweetheart to
marry you, make a little special event out of it. Rituals
help us understand the benchmarks of our lives and helps us
over the transom from one plane to another. As a Scorpio,
your still waters go deep. The ritual could be a little one
(writing down your feelings about a broken relationship and
then burning what you wrote with all the love letters you
had saved) or a bigger one (planning a funeral for your pet).
To profess your love to your sweetheart, you might plan an
evening of serious lovemaking, complete with new bed linens,
fresh flowers, candlelight and so forth. Set the date in advance
as well as the time, place and schedule (for example, dinner
out first, then dancing, then home . . . ). Rituals are pause
buttons which help separate out the mundane from what truly
matters. They can help you relax and become more in sync with
A departing word for you, Scorpio. Try not
to shut out loved ones. A Scorpio who is feeling troubled
is nearly impossible to read. When stress hits, you will seem
a million miles away to your family and friends. While initially
you will feel depleted by everyday life, including the mere
conversation, those around will want to help you by giving
you their perspective on your plight. Sometimes Scorpios will
remain isolated within themselves too long, as tension makes
them throw up barriers in self-protection. Because you won't
be getting any input from others, your perspective can become
distorted. Recognize that this can happen to you. Your need
for physical affection is important, and will reaffirm your
self-worth, but your lover will hesitate to reach out to you
if you shut him or her out. Open up a little, see how things
go. Accept and give physical love.
