This trans-mutative sign is always awash in mystery, controversy, and change. The enduring qualities of Scorpio are regenerative, healing, forgiving and resurgent.
Scorpio's time ranges from November 16th till December 16th in real time; the seasonal dates are October 20th till November 20th.
The Scorpion is widely known for not only duality, but three levels of it. The serpent is the lowest and most primitive emanation; the eagle is the average everyday Scorpio one meets at Starbucks, with the Phoenix rising through self sacrifice to become the eternal star of an immortal heavens.
Both Martian enthusiasm (Hestia), and Plutonian Fate (as Minerva) are at home in Scorpio, and some suggest a third body. Duality in rulership may be compared to living in a house divided against itself.
Enthusiastic Hestia lights a fire underneath us while making us at home. This influence lets displays how willing and skilled we are in letting our actions speak louder than our words.
The influence we know as Pluo, or Minerva, is that little powerhouse recently demoted to a planetoid or asteroid status- what a joke! Born with the Atom bomb, the Nazi era, the original gangsters of the 30s, this little revolutionary leaps up from the subconscious fully armored and ready to rock, as her name implies. Minerva causes change from within at bedrock level, evolving and purifying the inner person from the ground up; change that cannot be undone or turned back, but is willed by Heaven. This can be harsh if one fights oneself, or gets in ones own way, but a serene transition to higher things if one goes along.
The influence of Minerva is both a recording angel, and is an allegory of our giving up ourselves for our new life as galactic citizens.
The natural scent of Scorpio is patchouli, which is sometimes called graveyard dust. Most people really love this scent, it has very spiritual qualities. The metal is fine spun steel. Although the topaz, lodestone, or bloodstone are the most associated gems, a wise magickal Scorpio would seriously commend the aqua aura crystal, with it's ability to bring light into the throat for healing and expressing emotions, for increasing the awareness of inner truth, and for encouraging others to live out their spirituality.
Scorpios material is anything recycled, or a pattern resembling snakeskin.
The foods are anything scarlet red and black, truffles, oats, and artichokes.
These associations give the prudent magickal Scorpio a deeper insight into her nature and place in the world.
Your words of wisdom are, 'I am taking myself to the heights!'
The Scorpio garden features chrysanthemum, orchid, violet, dogwood, eucalyptus, foxglove, raspberry, hops, rye, unicorn root, and periwinkle, with a treasure chest at the center.
The most effective pilgrimage for Scorpio or anyone with a strong influx of Energy influence would be Notre Dame de Paris in France. A further visit to the Holocaust memorials in Germany or Poland, or at Hiroshima, would complete your destination.
The most effective shrine would be in a low garden, vineyard, muddy stream, small pond, operating room, bathroom, a recycle station, compost heap, junk yard, crematorium or incinerating plant. Dedicate the shrine in the key of E.
Scorpio sheds upon all which pass through its stars its' own tenacity, penetrative perceptiveness, eloquence, devotion, fearlessness and passion for the Right!
Every sign has three phases, or decanates, which change every ten days or degrees. This is another reason for the vast differences between the Scorpios! Called Rising Stars, these constellations stamp their signature on us at the hour of our birth, and at the birth of each new day. These rising stars tell us a great deal about which myth we may be enacting, with which archetypes, and which dramas we may live out in our lives.
The first is Serpens, the Serpent, ranging from November 15th till the 25th.
These stars and those of the Serpent Bearer are related to herbal healing, alternative holistic medicine, and the rising of kundalini energies. Those people and relationships born under these stars are dominant, positive, determined to have their way in all matters, and would be wise to practice restraint and patience.
The second decanate is Ophiuchus the Serpent Bearer, rising from th 25th of November till December 5th. These stars and those of the Serpens are related to herbal healing, holistic or alternative medicine, and the rising of kundalini energies. Those people and relationships born under these stars have dualistic tendencies and are very changeable and unpredictable.
The third decanate of Scorpio is Hercules, the Hero Kneeling, from the 5th till the 15th of December. This hero is also known as Gilgamesh, and has close associations with all sun heros, including Christ, Krishna, and the future divine avatar. The number 12 is important to all such people. Those people and relationships born under these stars are highly emotional, imaginative, changeable, and proud of nature.
Birth Chart of Dion Fortune, AKA Violet Firth
Violet Mary Firth, popularly known as Dion Fortune, or, 'God, not Fortune', authored a multitude of occult tomes with a distinctly Christian, or hermetic, tone. Most of us cut our teeth on Sane Occultism, Psychic Self Defense, and The Sea Priestess, as well as many other of her works. I wish the Magickal Battle of Britain were still available in print!
Planetary activity in Scorpio, no matter what house it falls in, or activity in the eighth house, no matter the sign which falls there, always gives us the most amazing ability to fall back and regroup; to reinvent ourselves; to plunge into the depths of our souls and rise up anew. Nothing keeps a Scorpio down!
Beware the Bad Boys!!! Jesse James
Jesse James is pretty irresistable, when we know plainly and straight up that we must resist like hell.
He has masculine Mars at the master degree in Scorpio in the fifth house; this is raw maleness+irresistable+pure luck. Mars actually trines Venus in Pisces, a weak placement for the queen of heaven, and his Part of Fortune- who would have seen that coming???
His moon is opposite Scorpio Mars, but not opposing, at 10 degrees of sensual, sexy Taurus.
Pluto spent 1995 through 2008 in Scorpio, where it did huge amounts of cleansing and clearing the human psyche of oppressive and stagnant icons.
We remember now that the Circle of Life is a vast cycle of recycle!
This placement of the bad girl is a tough one; we are inclined to believe the worst of ourselves.
Freya is the girl who knows exactly what she wants, and goes for it! She lets nothing and no one stand in her way.
Freya remains the Queen of Hearts, with a unique charm, extraordinary beauty, and a talent for healing which gives back more than she takes!
She is, in fact, the embodiment of pure magick...
Call on Freya for magick that works!
Invite Freya and her warrior energies into your life by meditating on the Empress card in the Sacred Tarot. Be warned, she brings romance as a second thought, and with it, fertility!!!
I like to accentuate the most positive of examples, and the way Hillary articulates her ambition, desire, and vision is pure Phoenix Scorpio! We know she can shred Bill to a bowl of noodles, and has exhibited an Amazons temper; God knows she has provocation! She refrains from sarcasm, bitingly incise criticism, and verbal assault, of which this transit is innately capable.
Instead, we can use our Mercury in Scorpio to weave a spell of verbal enchantment that makes our own vision swirl before the eyes of those we love, like, and want to share with, the way Hillary can.
we are sensitive, psychic, drawn to mysteries and sensations; this is when we solve puzzles and become puzzling to those who love us. We can be overly sensitive to comments made offhandedly or in jest. No the time to take things too seriously! Special care must be taken of the generational and eliminatory organs, as these are at their most vulnerable now. Recall, 'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.' You won't die if you get a hemorrhoid now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.
If you were born with the moon in Scorpio, then this is in fact your nature, so much so more than your sun sign. You are the epitome of Intense!
The moons placement in your chart always shows us your mom. She may not be a Scorpio, but this defines your relationship with her- intense, perhaps rivalry, passionate, with a strong and colorful psychic link.
Ceres in Scorpio gives us a stronger than normal psychic link with our moms and children.
Mars rules Scorpio in old and horary charts; while Mars transits his sign, he produces results! Usually, his occupation is rough, hazardous, profitable, and explosive.
If you were born with Mars in Scorpio, you find these qualities enticingly attractive! The rough boys just make your heart race! While he may not be a Scorpio, he exudes masculine power and self confidence, he keeps a lot of secrets, and has an acute mind and quick reactions. He has no time for the tender feelings of others, bruises them carelessly, and enjoys bromances. In many ways, you share these traits to a certain extent.
Jupiter transiting Scorpio awakens will power, stirs the depths of the soul with emotion, and makes us almost reckless with enjoyment of Life!
If you were born with Jupiter in Scorpio, your man must be larger than life! He must be epic in scope, handsomer than a movie star and able to thrill you with his glance. He may not be a Scorpio, but he will exhibit many of the higher, better Scorpio traits; he must uphold his honor, have many friends of a peculiar character, be very sexy, and not afraid of a fight!
Hold on for a wild ride!
With Juno in Scorpio, you will either share your mates adventurous tendencies, or snoop and spy on him.
Venus transiting Scorpio is not an excuse for being a shopaholic!
If you were born with Venus in Scorpio, it is so important to be able to exercise judgment, to reign in your baser emotions, to take charge of who you want to be; you have strong iron will power, which can be used to achieve mighty renoun!
The Saturn transit of Scorpio is peculiar, causing weird phobias, sudden changes of mind or temper, and sorrowful choices.
If you were born with Saturn in Scorpio, you have a shrewd mind which nonetheless has led you into sad love affairs, secret intrigues, and delvings into the hidden. Though probably not a Scorpio, you dead with your dad in this way, too; you love him intensely but hide it, because you also harbor a secret fear of him, and know that he will cause sorrow and pain and heartache, however unintentionally.
There is no place for this kind of thing, not to the mom, not to the daughter, not to the grandchildren; the time and place and person to stop it is you, now!
Uranus in Scorpio, 1897 till 1904, and 1981 to 1988.
With this transit, we see the rise of all kinds of Ancient Wisom paths, from Atlantis to Edgar Cayce type healings to Tarot in Daltons and herbal supplements in Fred Meyers.
The oldest dream of mankind is that of returning to the stars from whence we came; during this period, we pretty much achieved that.
Women born under this transit, from 1970 till 1984, have intense, colorful dreams and psychic sensations, and every one of them can relate a strange story of angelic visitation, UFO experiece, fairy sightings, and Otherwordly exchanges.
