Love a Scorpio?

Everything you can imagine is real.

Everybody has a favorite song, a favorite movie or a favorite season. For me, I have my own beloved Sun Sign. If I had chosen my Sun Sign, that would have been Scorpio. “Why?” well… these guys are tough, strong and invincible, these guys are able to come back from the dead, they can change their lives around every time they have the chance. These people have tremendous regenerative powers. I am just grateful that I have my Moon in Scorpio and that is a bit of Scorpio power of my own.

Scorpio has 2 very important rulers: Mars and Pluto, war and transformation. This planetary combo makes for people who are motivated, penetrating and aware of everything around them.  Scorpio rules the zodiac’s eighth house of intense bonding and it is known as a Fixed Sign together with Leo, Taurus and Aquarius. These are the strongest signs as they are very ambitious.

Pablo Picasso, Scorpio, born on the 25th of October: Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.

The Scorpion symbolizes Scorpio, and that is no accident. Much like the Scorpion would rather kill itself than be killed. Scorpio sees everything – including things that aren’t visible to the naked eye – and fears nothing. Scorpios are the most intense, profound, powerful characters in the zodiac. Their willpower is immense, their depth of character is overwhelming, yet they are deeply sensitive and extremely moved by emotions. They can control people and environment even if that is not what they want. They are always in the need to search and discover mysteries, they love to find out about people around them, but they are not willing to share things about them. Solar Scorpios have their own mind. And, their primary motivation is unlikely to be prestige (like their Capricorn friends), or even authority (as Leos)–it’s real real power. Their power is “behind the scenes”, hidden and absolute.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Scorpio, born the 11th of November said: Power is given only to those who dare to lower themselves and pick it up. Only one thing matters, one thing; to be able to dare!

Scorpios are said to be very sexual and have the power to dominate any partner. Scorpio is the zodiac sign that is the most likely to act out a sexual fantasy. So, if you want one, you know where to look for. Scorpio people can be jealous, controlling and obsessive. You have to be ready for quite a ride when it comes to this man or woman. In love, there is no middle ground for them. They are all in with you forever and ever or they are not. This is the sign that rules extremes and they can run hotter and colder than most. They invest a lot of heart and soul in a relationship and they want to know that this investment pays off. So, they will test you and put your heart on fire just to see if you are the one they are looking for. Stay strong as you will have the most devoted soul near you if you win a Scorpio heart.

Albert Camus, Scorpio, born the 7th of November: I know of only one duty, and that is to love.

Now, let’s see what happens when you meet a Scorpio lady or a Scorpio man? Are you strong and hot enough to stand the test of time and the test of the Scorpio?

Love a Scorpio Woman? This woman is the sexiest and most mysterious of the twelve signs of the zodiac. She is exotic and magnetic. She is not very easy to reach and will make you win her heart. You should never take her lightly. You must fight hard and be determined if you want her love. Direct, and brilliantly sharp, Scorpio women only focus on the fundamental things and want only what is real and on the long term. She refuses any superfluous friendships and hates one night stands. She wants to understand everything there is to know about you and knows how to craft just the right question to obtain the answers she seeks. Self-confident, resourceful, and strong, Scorpio women are driven to succeed and you just have to be there by their side. As the Taurus woman, the Scorpio woman is very good with money and she is able to take care of all expenses of the house. As a wife she is a very powerful ally by your side. As a mother, she will teach her children to be independent and ambitions and she will always be one step ahead of them tacking very good care. She is known in the zodiac as the mother tiger! Only a strong man can be with such a strong woman!

Love a Scorpio Man? The Scorpio man presents a strong masculine, sexual force. This man is driven by sex, so it easy to seduce him, but it is very hard to keep him only to yourself. There is a deadly kind of beauty to the Scorpio man – he is independent and fearless. You will be attracted to him. You can’t help it. An enigma between the sheets as well as out of them, this sense of mystery is often what draws so many women to a Scorpion’s den. But be careful as this man is stubborn, direct, secretive and sometimes rude. He will be very jealous and possessive and will never allow a woman to control him. So, it is best that you do not try that. With his family and friends he is very generous and caring, but you don’t want to see him upset. He can be a force of nature if something does not suit him. If you are looking for security and safety, this is NOT the man for you. He is adventurous and lusty; the Scorpio man will try anything once!

Uranus square Pluto – 2011 till 2015 influence

As we go in October 2013, we are heading straight to the climax of this year – there are 2 eclipses on the way and Uranus square Pluto is also building up again. This post is dedicated to the Uranus square Pluto energy. There are 7 exact Uranus Pluto squares between June 2012 and 2015. The last series of squares was between 1932 and 1934.Back then, the world lived the Great Depression, the political and social upheaval.

Why and how is this important?

This is a time that reveals transformation and defines a new era. It is a time to change focus and define a new strategy. There are unpredictable forces at work here. Uranus square Pluto is the most significant and most challenging planetary influence of our generation.  

What is a square?

A square is an angle of 90° (1/2 of an opposition [180°]). In Astrology, this is usually considered a very stressful aspect. It creates tension between planets and points. But tension is necessary to stimulate action and movement. This is an aspect that creates a lot of obstacles before it is smooth and right. However, a square forces everybody to find alternative solutions to problems, fight and learn lessons.

What is Pluto’s energy?

Pluto represents destruction, transformation and renewal. It is associated with death and resurrection, sexuality and creation. It is the Phoenix bird of astrology.  In Greek mythology, a phoenix is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. Pluto’s effect is grinding, ruthless, and extreme. Pluto is elimination, clearing out, and if the world seems covered in shadow, it is only to be revealed. Pluto transforms, nothing is ever the same after him.

Pluto is now in Capricorn, the sign of value, agendas, how we share, renew or exploit others. Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008. The first year that Pluto was in Capricorn the world experienced the financial collapse. At that time, financial institutions were collapsing in domino style, and there were a lot of unworthy explanations about what really happened.

Pluto’s game is through power struggle for who owns the Earth. Capricorn defines family, government, tradition and with Pluto here these things are going to change fundamentally. Pluto will be in Capricorn till 2024 and he will affect: Capricorn most powerfully, Cancer, Aries and Libra. In 2024, the family and the government will be totally different from what we know today.

What is Uranus’ energy?

Uranus is change, invention, revolution. It’s effect is unpredictable and shocking. Uranus rules invention and technology. The Planet Uranus changes signs every 7 years and brings with it change, unexpected events, and sometimes complete upheaval. In 2011, Uranus was entering Aries. The global effect of that, say some astrologers, was a tsunami and earthquake in Japan that caused the Fukushima mess and also the protests that spread through the Middle East.

Uranus square Pluto?

There are 7 exact Uranus Pluto squares between June 2012 and 2015. The next one is on Nov. 1 2013 and it is the forth of the seven exact squares. It is the midpoint of the cycle. The last will be on March 16, 2015. The events resemble the force of change. It will be like a hammer hitting to a rusted bolt. It will not move and it will not change. It will just hit and hit. The hammering must knock the rust off. That is the target. A transition to change is necessary. We will most likely face challenges as in 1930′s. If we want to maintain growth and prosperity, we need to change direction. The effect: extremism rising, nationalism rising and protests all over the world.

What about us?

This is a time to reinvent ourselves, to search and understand and see what we are made of, what is possible for us and what is not. We need to change to be able to pass through this revolutionary time.
