X-Ray Vision – The Deepest of Seekers
Smoldering under the surface of their eyes, Scorpio’s stare will penetrate you before you’ve even realized it. Suddenly you will find yourself in the presence of an oracle who knows your deepest secrets and your darkest fears. Scorpio will tease it out of you and then smack you in the face with it.
And you will be afraid, but you will like it.
Regardless whether they are bat-shit crazy or insanely intuitive, Scorpios delight in frightening their peers with their precise ability to read people. It matters not whether peering into the inner lives of strangers & acquaintances, or close friends & lovers.
The reason they are so damn good at sussing out people is less glamorous. They are afraid of being hurt, abandoned, humiliated, or betrayed. So they learn from a very young age to be a divining rod for emotional undercurrents and hidden motives. Scorpios usually have a less than awesome time in childhood, often living through themes of control and dominace. One way this shows itself later in life is this uncanny ability to know what you’re thinking and feeling before you do. It’s a form of divination / a fear of the unknown / a kind of self-preservation. If Scorpio can predict behaviors or personalities, there’s a better chance of avoiding trouble later.
The key to healing these fears lies in having courage in the face of pain, and learning to be emotionally independent. The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is being able to live a life free from need of other people, so one can be free to want other people. This empowers Scorpio and eventually makes them a solid unshakable rock. And the path through pain involves confronting those icky feelings and wading through it to the other side. “This too shall pass” is a valuable thing to remember when going through the dying phase of the Phoenix life-dance that the Scorpio is destined to repeat.
Lastly, Scorpios love delving deep into someone’s psyche, uprooting their issues, and discovering a beautiful and dark underworld beneath. Their own journey with personal and spiritual growth is vastly important to them and often this can lead them to following the path of a spiritual teacher or mystic. Having gone through a lot of pain in their lives, the Scorpio must come to terms with it, and they do this through finding meaning in it. Being a water sign, and so inherently creative, they find meaning through symbols, omens, art and music. These things help to decode their lives, which can seem chaotic without anchorage in these deeper spiritual truths. Once the Scorpio has given their trials enough meditation, they truly blossom into wise teachers having learned from the archetypal patterns in their lives.
All in all, the sexy, creepy-penetrating gaze of a Scorpio on the hunt entices many, repulses a few, and weeds out the weak ones.
Most of all, a force to be reckoned with.
