Happy Birthday Scorpio!
You, Scorpio, are the true enigma of the zodiac. Many may think that they know you, but in reality, very few actually do. That’s because you carry a protective shield with you, all the better to keep you safe from unwanted attention or those who want to meddle too deeply into your affairs. Some would say that you have trust “issues”, but in reality, you prefer to keep your heart and soul under-wraps, until others have proven themselves. And when they do, you are the most loyal friend and companion!
Your sign rules the following professions: Private investigator, forensics expert, psychiatrist, plumber, researcher, embalmer, funeral home director, mystic (yes, this can be a profession) and dominatrix! Notice a theme? It’s the desire to dig deep and explore the underworld, the mysteries of life--whether it’s the psyche, underground sewer systems, the ritual of death or the sometimes forbidden world of sex!
This is because your ruling planet is Pluto, the God of the Underworld. You may know the Greek myth of Persephone, the earth maiden that Hades (Pluto) kidnapped to be his bride in the underworld (i.e. Hell). Long story, short, Persephone’s mom made a pact with the Gods to return her daughter to the earth, in spring and summer. Your journey, like Persephone’s in this lifetime is one of death and rebirth, a continual process of discovery and transformation.
You’re either great at business, or a total failure, depending on your mood. And yes, you are deeply sensitive and emotional…still waters run deep is an apt description. When you’re on your A-Game, you can out-maneuver the best of the best. In fact you have highly refined perception, some would say “psychic”, the ability to perceive deeper nuances, allowing you to be super strategic when it comes to the game of life. And for you, life is often a chess game, and you love to explore all moves!
At the end of the day, Scorpions are happiest in soul-based relationships. A partner that will grow and evolve with you, and yet at the same time, give you space for your own discovery and evolution.
Astro Alert! With Saturn, the planet of hard-lessons, restriction and karma leaving your sign in September, you should be feeling lighter and freer to explore your destiny without all the hard work!
Your Sunny Side: Intuitive, loyal, wise, healer/teacher, strategic, giving.
Your Shadow Side: Jealous, controlling, overly-intense, elusive, fear-based, competitive.
