Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio is intense, passionate, and will never do ritual just for ritual sake. A Scorpio has to truly believe in something to commit to it, and when they do, they commit 100%. Many Scorpio find themselves as spiritual leaders, as other people admire their commitment to dogma. Scorpio believes that religion and spirituality can be passionate and intense, and wants to “feel” their spirituality. For Scorpio, spirituality is a full-body experience, and often, Scorpio finds spiritual intensity through intense physical exercise or a physical experience. Scorpio believes in breaking boundaries and will often pick and choose from different spiritual and religious teachings to find the one that’s most meaningful to them.

When the water element is emphasized in a person’s natal chart, they are usually quite emotional – even if they don’t show it (still waters run deep). Confinement is not something these people deal well with; they are usually quite resourceful. On a positive level watery people are caring, emotional and artistic, but can also tend to exaggerate feelings out of proportion and live in a fantasy world. When a person’s chart lacks water, there is the tendency for them to find it difficult to understand the feeling side of life and to show compassion to those around them.

A word of warning, here , as we are facing one of the most spiritual signs. Scorpio is an especially complex being, and among all its characteristics there is a certain admiration for mysticism and everything that is supernatural. One of the main features of their personality is their excellent imagination and intuition, and that is why Ajna is Scorpio’s dominant Chakra, the one that governs and manages their energetic side. 

Related to the pituitary and hormonal systems, as well as part of the digestive system,  the Third Eye Chakra accentuates knowledge, perception, control, and intuition, characteristics that are part of the daily life of any Scorpio. This is why it is known as the Sixth Sense Chakra, and its correspondent stones are lapis lazuli, sodalite, iolite and sapphire, while the colors associated with  this energetic focus are indigo and violet.

Traditional Gemstone

Opal, is a hydrated silicon dioxide, sometimes containing the minerals cristobalite and tridymite. As an amorphous, water containing stone, it does not crystallize. Opal comes in many colors with or without the play of color, which is caused by silica sphers of varying size being closely packed together. 

Spiritual uses The watery vibration of opal makes this stone a perfect tool for connecting with the devic forces of water, including all the devas of the undine family of which merfolk and water sprites are but a few. Connect with the blue-green energy to assist in interspecies communication with dolphins and whales for expanded spiritual awareness. Atlantean mysteries can be recollected through channeling or automatic writing while using this stone. Ancient Greeks believed the opal had the power of giving foresight and the light of prophecy to its owner.

Emotional Uses: With its water content, opal is excellent for shifting your emotions through self-awareness. This stone also helps protect your from too easily absorbing other people’s energy, feelings or thoughts. 

"Perfection is power."

Zodiac Flower: Geranium

Like the many petals of Geraniums, Scorpios have many sides to them and never let anyone fully know what they’re thinking. Once you think you know a Scorpio, they’re quick to show you another, completely unexpected side of themselves. These symmetrical five-petal zodiac flowers grow in tight bunches, similar to a Scorpio’s tendency to keep a small circle of close friends and family around them. A Scorpio’s small circle will get to know a more sensitive side despite the outside world seeing them as a mystery. The geranium flower comes in many colors, just like Scorpios — expect the unexpected from them.

Essential Oil

One of the most ambitious signs, you’re brave, determined, and fiercely loyal. You’re the first to speak up for yourself or a friend in need, and expressing your emotions comes second nature to you. Sacred Frankincense helps bring the inner peace you need to achieve your goals and helps ground your emotions.

Scorpio, the eighth sign in the zodiac, belongs to those born between the dates of October 23rd and November 21st. Learn all about the Scorpio sign below.

Scorpio Zodiac Sign Traits

Passionate, independent, and unafraid to blaze their own trail no matter what others think, Scorpio signs make a statement wherever they go. They love debates, aren’t afraid of controversy, and won’t back down from a debate. They also hate people who aren’t genuine, and are all about being authentic—even if authentic isn’t pretty.

Because of all of these traits, a Scorpio can seem intimidating and somewhat closed off to those who don’t know them well. But what people don’t realize is that even though Scorpio may seem brusque, as a water sign, they also are very in tune with their emotions, and sometimes may find themselves caught up in their feelings.

This leads to Scorpio’s central conflict: Their feelings are what drives them and strengthens them, but their mutability can scare them and make them feel vulnerable and out of control. Because of this conflict, Scorpios, like their namesake, the scorpion, put up an outer shell and may seem prickly.

But once people get beyond the shell, they find a loyal, loving person whose passion knows no bounds. Scorpio dives into all life has to offer with 110% enthusiasm. A Scorpio will be your most loyal friend, most dedicated employee—and your worst enemy, if they want to be.

In love, Scorpio can seem cautious at first, and may set up a series of “tests” for their potential partner, deciding to cross them off their list if they don’t meet their demands. The trouble is, they tend to keep their partner out of the loop on what, exactly, they want, making their partner feel like they have to play mind reader. If a Scorpio and their partner can get past this initial hurdle, the connection will be intense, in both highs and lows. A Scorpio will love harder and fight harder than any other sign, and wants their partner to be absolutely honest. They will be—even if it’s not what the partner wants to hear. In the bedroom, Scorpio is generous, imaginative, and always up for anything—all night long.

"You never know what you are capable of until you try."

Scorpio’s Greatest Gifts

So many other signs spend valuable time and energy beating around the bush, desperately trying to find an approach that makes the fewest waves when it comes to confronting a conflict. Not Scorpio. Blessed with a deep sense of self, Scorpio is always able to say exactly what’s on their mind, even if it’s not what people want to hear. Scorpio is forthright and honest, and those two characteristics commandeer a ton of respect, both at home and at work.

Scorpio’s Greatest Challenges

Repeat after us: It’s all right to cry. Scorpio tries to hard to seem tough that they sometimes cut off their vulnerable side entirely, seeming prickly, uncaring, and cold to outsiders. While expressing emotion is scary, learning how to do it is key for Scorpio, since presenting an “I don’t care” veneer can only work for so long before it get’s exhausting!

Scorpio’s Secret Weapon

Their empathy. Also it may not seem this way at first glance, watchful Scorpio can read a room very quickly and can clue into how everyone else is feeling. Because of this, they can immediately tune into someone who needs TLC and often knows the right thing to say or do to change the mood or tener of a room when it needs to be changed.

Scorpio’s Power Colors

Confident, in control, and the center of attention in all situations, Scorpio can use different colors to enhance their already prodigious natural gifts. Colors that inspire Scorpio include:

Red: This fiery color speaks to Scorpio’s innate intensity, and also highlights their passion—when they love something, they love it.

Mauve: Purple, the color of royals, speaks to the majestic way Scorpio carries themselves.

Blue: Even though they’re fiery, it’s important to remember that Scorpio is a water sign. The blue speaks to their mutable emotions and can channel their empathy and understanding.

Gray: Silver and changing, like the moon, a grayish-silver hue speaks to the shifting intensity in Scorpio’s internal emotional landscape.

These are the colors that Scorpio should avoid:

Yellow: This bright, one-tone color screams sunny optimism, when Scorpio is known for seeing all sides of a situation.

Green: Scorpio is more drawn to brown earth tones—think, the trunk of a tree rather than the leaves. Green can be too one-dimensional for complicated Scorpio.

Orange: This color is often given to those in the spotlight, and while Scorpio naturally draws attention, they don’t necessarily seek it out.

"My passion is my path to my soul."

Awakening the Inner Scorpio Phoenix

People think of Scorpio and think scorpion. But one of Scorpio’s powerful animal totems is the phoenix—the bird who emerges from the ashes of destruction and toward a new and more perfect world. Here, how to awaken the inner Scorpio phoenix.

Feel the fear and do it anyway: Going into a situation that’s scary—even a roller-coaster—and emerging from it is all about showing Scorpio’s resiliency. Afraid of heights? Time to sign up for skydiving lessons.

Wear red: Incorporate red into your wardrobe and wear it on the days when you feel most vulnerable.

Cry: Scorpio tries to hide their vulnerability, even though they’re quite sensitive. Learning to cry and show emotions in front of people is a key Scorpio talent that can only make you stronger.

Go back and forgive. Had a terrible breakup? Have a face to face convo with the person who broke your heart. For Scorpio, these scary encounters only make them feel stronger and more resilient.

All of the above are especially powerful in a month that manifests a full moon in Scorpio!

Scorpio’s Karma Boosters

Every sign has to deal with unfinished business. For Scorpio, the biggest life lesson is learning how to temper their passion and choose a middle way. This can take a lifetime, but Scorpio has to start somewhere. Here are a few first steps that any Scorpio can take towards clearing their karma:

  1. Take a day off. You tend to go all or nothing, and see a day off as a sign of failure. But try it sometime—it feels good.
  2. Hold your tongue. You like everything to be perfect, and can’t help sharing criticism. But hold off next time. Things don’t have to be perfect to be good—promise.
  3. Netflix and chill. Cuddling and more on the couch with your partner can be just as yummy as whips, chains, and candles. Promise.
  4. Do something you hate because someone else loves it. Outdoors not your thing? Suggest going on a hike to a friend who loves it. The point isn’t quashing your own desires, just making room for other people’s opinions.
  5. Try pastels. You’re automatically drawn to fiery colors, but choosing more temperate hues can also temper your all-or-nothing personality. Promise!
