BAD MOONSLIFE BLOODRITES OF PASSAGE

THE LOVERS OF SCORPIOS

31 Oct

SCORPIO FIRESCORPIO IS THE EIGHTH SIGN OF THE ZODIAC, AND THE SECOND WATER SIGN (AFTER CANCER).  WEIGHTY AND INTENSE, ALTHOUGH SCORPIO IS RULED BY PLUTO, WITH MARS AS ITS CO-RULER IT SHARES CERTAIN AGGRESSIVE CHARACTERISTICS WITH ARIES.  SCORPIO SYMBOLICALLY DEMONSTRATES THE POWER OF MIDDLE AGE, & A CORRESPONDING ABILITY TO DIRECT & CONTROL THE LIFE AROUND IT.SCORPIO PALMSCORPIO CAN BE SEEN AS AN EVOLUTIONARY STAGE BETWEEN LIBRA & SAGITTARIUS THAT TRANSMUTES GRACIOUS, SOCIAL AND DIPLOMATIC ENERGIES INTO PHILOSOPHICAL, CHANGEABLE AND FIERY ONES.  PLUTO GRANTS VOLCANIC SEXUAL ENERGIES AS WELL AS AN INSIGHT INTO THE MYSTERIES OF METAMORPHOSIS & TRANSFORMATION.SCORPIO WORLDTHE SCORPIO I PERIOD TAKES INTENSITY AS ITS CENTRAL IMAGE.  THE DAYS WHICH COMPRISE SCORPIO I ILLUSTRATE THE UNDERLYING THEME OF INTENSITY, AND THE ACCOMPANYING CAPACITY TO FORMULATE, GUIDE AND FINALLY TRANSFORM UNPOLISHED MATERIALS CREATIVELY AND EFFICIENTLY INTO HIGHLY VALUABLE AND VIABLE ENTITIES.  SCORPIO I PEOPLE ARE VERY INTENSE.  ONCE THEY GET THEIR TEETH INTO SOMETHING THEY DO NOT EASILY LET GO.  NOR DO THEY SPECIALIZE IN COMPROMISE.  USING THEIR CHARM WITH GREAT EFFECT IS CHARACTERISTIC OF SCORPIO I’S.SCORPIO JUNGSSCORPIO II TAKES DEPTH AS ITS CENTRAL IMAGE.  SCORPIO II’S SYMBOLICALLY REVEAL THE MORE SERIOUS SIDE OF HUMAN LIFE.  GENERALLY SCORPIO II’S ARE NOT IN A BIG HURRY.  METAMORPHIC CHANGE MAY BE EFFECTED IN THEMSELVES AND THEIR LIVES OVER MANY YEARS – SLOWLY AND UNSEEN.  THE DANGER IN SUCH STATIC BEHAVIOR WILL LEAD TO BROODING, & DURING SUCH PERIODS SCORPIO II’S MUST BEWARE THAT THEIR DARK SIDE DOES NOT COME TO DOMINATE THEIR OUTLOOK.   AS WHEN OIL IS STRUCK & A GEYSER EXPLODES, TREMENDOUS ENERGIES CAN BE RELEASED FROM THE DEEP LAYERS OF THE UNCONSCIOUS.  SUCH ENERGIES MUS OF COURSE BE WELL DIRECTED OR DESTRUCTION COULD EASILY RESULT.  IDEALLY, POWERFUL NEW INSIGHTS MAY RESULT AT THIS TIME.SCORPIO STARSTHE SCORPIO III TAKES CHARM AS ITS CENTRAL IMAGE, SYMBOLICALLY REVEALING THE ATTRACTIVE POWERS OF SEDUCTIVE CHARM,  & MAGNETISM.  SCORPIO III PEOPLE TEND TO BE HIGHLY MAGNETIC, & HAVE A HIGHLY DEVELOPED SENSUALITY WHICH NOT ONLY TENDS TO ATTRACT OTHERS BUT LEADS THEM TO SEEK OUT A VARIETY OF PHYSICALLY SATISFYING EXPERIENCES.  THE INNER STABILITY OF SCORPIO III IS USUALLY SO GREAT THAT IT SEEMS IT WOULD TAKE AN EARTHQUAKE TO KNOCK THEM OFF BALANCE.  PART OF THE REASON FOR THIS IS SELF-CONTROL, ANOTHER PART A REALISTIC ASSESSMENT OF THEIR CAPABILITIES, WHICH KEEPS THEM FROM VENTURING BEYOND THEIR LIMITATIONS.  CONTROL IS THE KEYSCORPIO DEN
