A belated Happy Birthday to all my Scorpio friends and family! Yes, yesterday the Sun moved into the sign of the Scorpion.
Scorpios are often considered the most intense, profound, powerful members of the zodiac (and I swear, I’m not just saying that because I’m afraid to be on your bad side, Scorpio! Love ya! Smooches!). Even when they appear self-controlled and calm there is a seething intensity of emotional energy under the placid exterior.
Sometimes Scorpios are accused of holding grudges, which is not really true. It’s just that Scorpios rarely forget anything, and are ready to defend themselves if they have been hurt. (Hence my consternation at not posting this yesterday!). But while they have a legendary sting when provoked, they are also refreshingly honest and unpretentious.
A second symbol for Scorpio is the Eagle. The Golden Eagle has been regarded from ancient times as a symbol of courage and power. The eagle represents clear vision, intelligence, and power. It is a majestic bird, and also symbolizes freedom. Scorpios, with their perceptiveness, have the potential to see things more clearly than others. How they handle the power of this vision will depend on whether they are at the level of a scorpion or an eagle!
One of the most intelligent members of the zodiac, Scorpios have a deep well of strength that, if tapped into, can produce a powerful ally, or a vindictive enemy. A huge abundance of energy usually makes this person a powerful achiever and go-getter; for the Scorpio is never lazy. Though their worst fault is jealousy, they also have the power within to turn this around.
As the Scorpion and its next neighbor on the wheel, the archer Sagittarius, both deliver their most accurate sting while retreating, the energy of this time for all of us favors the protection of the harvest and other similar efforts that should now be nearing completion.
For with the Sun moving into the sign of Scorpio, there can be no doubt that the deep energy of the third and final harvest is upon us — Samhain is only a week away.
