I got a little bored and end up reading about horoscopes at AOL. This is what it says about Scorpio. I was told I am a rather un-scorpio Scorpio, having less of a characteristic of Scorpio and my characteristics are kinda mixed up. (The following is an extract from the AOL website.)
Scorpio Characteristics and Profile
The Scorpion is one intense little creature, with enough poison in its own tail to disable or kill a much larger opponent. But the problem with this kind of built-in biological weaponry is that it must be mastered in order to be used most effectively. You Scorpios can use your “stinger” for self-defense, using your powerful emotional awareness to render your opponent harmless. But there is a sexual component of poisonous tail also, and until Scorpio learns to control those strong urges, Scorpio may find yourself in uncomfortable situations.
I haven’t really done anything that is particularly mean I guess. I can’t say I won’t do that in future. But I think I do have emotional awareness. And the sex part… Hmmmp… Maybe can look at the next portion.
Scorpio is the only sign that has three animal totems. First, there is the well-known Scorpion with its active tail. Second, as the Scorpio learns to master its passion and hold its instincts at bay, it changes into the Eagle. The Eagle has more perspective, for it flies high above the surface of circumstances, swooping down with its power only to kill prey for food. In its third form, the Scorpion becomes the always-peaceful dove. The real meaning of Scorpio is thus shown. Scorpio is about metamorphosis. Scorpios transform the painful poisons of possessive passion into a higher consciousness based on universal love.
Last I checked, I am not equipped with a tail. But really, the above paragraph seems to have gotten pretty much everything covered. If so, I’m probably Scorpio form 2.5 (between second and third form), just like WordPress.
The Scorpio motto might be “What is hidden is more interesting than what is obvious.” You are the detectives of the zodiac. Your magnetic personality draws others to you. But you can also be secretive yourself, for you learn early on that when you express everything, others may be scared by the power of your feelings. You desperately want to have someone to merge with your feelings, but can become cold and withdrawn when hurt in love. You have the magic to light up the dark, but sometimes you would benefit by looking at the positive side of things rather than going into the darkness at all.
You know… I don’t really understand the above. But, but… I appreciate things that are hidden and tend not to look at things that are obvious. I don’t really like to be secretive. The portion that I keep secretive is my thought-process.
Astrologically, the water element symbolizes emotion. Water runs deep; it seeks its own level and will flow until it has found it. The cycle of water is endless with the snows falling in the mountains and melting. The mountain streams join to make the great rivers that run to the sea. The tides and currents churn the oceans. Similarly, our feelings are flowing as they connect the present with past experiences. Sometimes the waters are so deep that we cannot put words to our feelings.
The water of Scorpio is fixed and frozen, but it is a mistake to think that ice doesn’t flow. It does flow – and with great power. Think of a glacier, moving so very slowly, yet with enough power to flatten a forest or even a mountain.
I love water and the above paragraph seemed kinda confusing so I ain’t going to comment. I love water.
Eighth House: Transformation
Since the Second House is the House of Possessions, the Eighth House opposite it, is about what other people have. This can include sexual issues, for they usually involve another person. It is also about the ultimate transformation — death — but not necessarily your own. It could be said that the Eighth House is what we don’t know and what we cannot understand. It is surely a House of Hidden Power.
Key Planet: Pluto
Pluto is the Lord of the Underworld. If this sounds scary, it demands a bit more explanation, for Pluto symbolizes everything that is beneath our consciousness. This isn’t about the Hell where we are punished. Rather, it is the Hell that William Blake describes as a place “so beautiful that it would torment an angel to insanity.” As the key planet for Scorpio, Pluto is intense and powerful, representing those things that we don’t or can’t understand. And it is from these hidden Plutonic spaces that magical transformations arise.
Pluto is not a planet any more. And… I don’t understand the above too. How come so cryptic? Using RSA or what?
Scorpio Greatest Strength: Your passion about your feelings
Scorpio Possible Weakness: Need for secrecy can be isolating
I would agree with my strength, but weakness… Not really. It’s strange that they put the positive trait as ‘greatest’ and the weakness as just a mere possibility. Very tact editing!
