According to the ancients, there are many variations of Homo Scorpius. This is testimonial to your well recognized complexity. The scorpion symbolizes a hotheaded warrior who is violently passionate, bluntly sarcastic, egotistical,controlling and manipulative. The soaring eagle symbolizes the calm but intense, focused, determined, intuitive and perceptive Scorpio who often develops healing, clairvoyant, and counseling abilities.The sacred serpent, an Egyptian emblem of cosmic wisdom, was grounded in earthly reality, but penetrated the higher levels of consciousness. The serpent periodically sheds outworn habits, beliefs, and illusions to facilitate growth through rebirth. The phoenix is the confident, courageous, positive transformer that transcends the personal ego. The sympathetic, generous dove, a natural healer, is infused with love, which it transmits to others. Your keyword is TRANSFORMATION. You likely will experience all the traits of your sign's varied symbols to some extent through the psychological death and regeneration process. Contrasts and extremes of virtue and vice are imbedded in every Scorpio, waiting for employment or transcendence. It can be a difficult journey or a blissful one depending on your choices. There's no middle-of-the-road playing around with you. Your feelings are very strong and unyielding, and you can be extremely sensitive and willful.It would be good for you to work at being cooperative.

The Greeks saw this constellation as the scales, an instrument of justice and balance. As an air sign that marks the midpoint of the year, you strive for mental equilibrium and harmony in your life and environment. You weigh things one against the other, considering every angle of an issue in an attempt to reach equanimity. By taking a logical approach to reaching an objective judgment, you can save time and make wise decisions quickly. Otherwise, you can find yourself miserably bound in indecision and fluctuation, straddling the fence or wavering from one extreme of the scale to the other. BALANCE is your keyword. And to maintain it, you must be willing to constantly re-evaluate situations in an ever-changing world, accepting positive and negative developments as valid and vital ingredients necessary for life growth. It's important that you maintain an inner connection to the voice within that tells you when to make adjustments for your highest good. Take time out to ponder and refine your thoughts, building wisdom, stabilizing yourself and bringing order to your mind. You're liable to strike out aggressively when your inner equilibrium is challenged. A lack of confidence in your decision-making skills can cause you to choose manipulative or deceitful tactics, or become co-dependent.

Your symbol, the two fishes, dates back to Egypt around 2,300 BC. In the constellation of Pisces, one fish faces east and swims upward while the other swims west along the plane of the ecliptic, signifying a duality of nature. The eastern fish suggests an upward ascent or a heavenly/spiritual disposition; the western fish, a mundane/earthly alignment. You're more likely to head toward the spiritual direction of the eastern fish, which seems most intent upon altering its course. The alternate reality you envision and create with fantasy, dreams, meditation and spiritual bliss is much more attractive to you than the trials,tribulations and sorrow you encounter on the material plane. In the extreme, you could become an ascetic addicted to spiritual attainment, turning your back on the world. Your keyword is UNIFICATION. Rather than retreating into TV, drugs, or drinking, you can tune into your higher self through meditation. You can channel wisdom and guidance for your own and others' practical, earthly good. Have your cake and eatit too by uniting your inner spiritual aspirations with your physical experiences. You enjoy practicing meditation in various forms including dance, yoga, loving devotion and contemplation. Its benefits will filter down into your everyday life, helping you rise above your emotions, fears, false imaginings and superstitions.
