Scorpio has the ability to frighten or empower us. Once we conquer the fear, we are eternally empowered. The riddle is in how to do that.
Today is an interesting day for the Scorpio Moon because she is in very good aspect to three important planets: Pluto, Venus, and Mars. Pluto and Mars are Scorpio’s rulers. Pluto, lord of riches, and Mars, the warrior, are at Scorpio’s beck and call today. These two can be intense enough on their own, but when they are working together with Scorpio—watch out! It’s power, power, power for better or worse.
Venus, also a lover of riches, is in Pisces now. Her obsession moves from worldly enjoyment to connection with the divine . This is a beautiful placement for Venus and one that can easily be interpreted as unconditional love. This blessed placement softens the power train of Pluto, Mars, and the Scorpio Moon. She lifts them up, encouraging them to exchange revenge for mercy and avarice for generosity.
The symbolism for Scorpio always seems dark: graveyards, scorpions, taxes. It’s all a part of life, which is why I chose to caption the photo “Live It.” There’s an old saying that the only thing we can be sure of in life is death and taxes, both of which belong in Scorpio’s domain. The tax form represents not only taxes, but everything that belongs to someone else. Taurus is what we own. Scorpio is what we owe.
The barbed stiletto high heel is a symbol of sex, depicted as somewhat predatory like the scorpion or the praying mantis. The sex of Scorpio is sex for procreation. The sex associated with the 5th house of our natal charts is the sex that is purely for pleasure or fun. The 8th house of Scorpio is to regenerate, continue the species, grow stronger and more powerful.
The phoenix represents our ability to overcome the limitation of death. We’ve now come to associate it with triumph over any truly oppressive obstacles. It can also represent the soul ascending upward, released from worldly bondage.
The stones I’ve chosen for Scorpio are the red-orange topaz for healing and strength, the snowflake obsidian for release of damaging patterns, and the Apache tear for grief.
The Queen of Cups represents fixed water, Scorpio’s element. She is considered one of the psychic cards of the tarot, second only to the High Priestess. Planets in Scorpio or the 8th house increase intuition and the ability to see beyond the material world.
