A Tale of Two Scorpios
My daughter has fallen for a boy who lives in England. She’s there visiting him now and his parents, both Scorpio sun signs, have taken her in and treated her like family. Now if you’ve never been befriended by a Scorpio, you may not know the depth of their loyalty or just what it means to earn their trust in the first place. I have Scorpio moon and ascendant and relate more personally to that sign than to my Gemini sun.
Scorpio lives a little deeper beneath the surface than most of the world. We do not take things at face value. Every motive is questioned, every gesture examined for sincerity. The good ones (of course there are good and bad of every sign) will never break their word, never betray, never deceive. Scorpios sometimes are accused of being too intense, too emotional, that is if they are they sort to let their emotions show at all, because they can be very tight lipped about, well everything. Once you’re in, you’re in and God help anyone who hurts someone a Scorpio loves, so my daughter is a very lucky girl and with her own Scorpio influences, she knows it.
Now you know if you’ve been reading here at all that the placement of the sun at your birth only tells a bit of the story, and so this pair will have some things in common courtesy of their Scorpios suns, but they are two distinct individuals. The chart images look like a mirror of one another, a perfectly complimentary set.
Her Scorpio sun and other planets fall along the descendant, the line marking the beginning of the house of other. She puts everyone else before herself, loves to serve and is maybe a little baffled that others don’t think the same way though you won’t hear her complain. Steadfast, Venus ruled Taurus falls at the beginning of her chart, the ascendant. Taurus is the quintessential earth mother and while she is so much more than that, this is the side of her that greets you upon first meeting.
He is all first house, house of self. Self directed, self sufficient, self motivated and maybe occasionally a bit self absorbed. But only a little or only on occasion because this first house person has Libra ascendant and Libra is all about keeping the balance. Scorpio’s no holds barred intensity is tempered by the grace and charm of a Libra exterior.
And so we see a theme develop with these two. Grace and charm coupled with dependability and the capacity to sustain. To sustain one another and anyone they care for. Both are also dreamers. You have to be to overcome some of the challenges they’ve faced and keep a positive outlook intact.
Saturn is the planet of hard work, facing fears, overcoming obstacles. It is in the sign of Scorpio in the sky right now and no doubt calling on these two Scorpios to face some challenges, to keep pushing through and to carry on despite times not being the easiest. They will persevere, as they always have and these challenges will not be the worst for there is support in the sky as well.
This is the tip of the story. Scorpios would never forgive me for telling their secrets here on my blog. Consider this the gift tag and the private readings to follow, the real gift.
