In the shadow of last week’s new Moon in Scorpio, truth’s clarion call rises from the depths of our hearts — in animus veritas. Scorpio energy doesn’t tolerate shallow anything, especially from other people. This often requires honest, emotional exchanges that spark unwanted but overdue transformation. Like the autumn, Scorpio sheds to renew.
Scorpio energy can also be described as the “urge to merge” — sexually or spiritually. More often than not, these are experienced as two sides of the same coin. Under Scorpio, interpersonal relationships become conduits for achieving states of being beyond the cycles of life. Yet Scorpio’s propensity to be a creative catalyst is paralleled by an aptitude for catabolizing another’s energy for selfish purposes.
As for the Scorpio characters in your life, I’m reminded of this line from A Course in Miracles: “Beware the unhealed healer.” Indeed, Scorpio may heal with the power of love — or lust for power at all costs. To know which Scorpio you’re dealing with, just look for the telltale signs of a narcissistic personality disorder. Inflated sense of self-importance? Squash the scorpion before you get stung.
