Scorpio – Michael Barwick Astrologer


ScorpioDear Scorpio,

If you haven’t read it yet, you might want to check out my article on Sun Signs in general before you read the article below.

When the when the distribution of the finely sifted grain is over in Libra, next is the killing of some of the animals. Death though darkness is revealed as a necessary part of life. What gives you the edge is that you can see in the dark.

When you’re being typical Scorpio, the Sun’s placement in the water element makes you motivated by deeply felt yearnings and desires. You relate to life through an emotional personal history. Intense emotional experience of all kinds energizes you. And your intense emotional experience is Hallowe’en: a disturbing but fascinating time when the veil between the world thins and the dead rise again to walk among the living.

Because Scorpio is a fixed sign, you are goal-oriented and persistent. You feel intensely about the initiatives you back or you wouldn’t be in them. You have the perseverance to see through things to the bitter end if need be about the things you are passionate about. This makes you fierce and vital.

Your life path is about embodying fidelity: being faithful to what is bed-rock truth in a life full of change and lies. You seek to understand what’s under the carpet that everyone avoids looking at. When you face it, you have the power to deeply bond with others because you have learned compassion even for the darkest side. You are mysterious; you need to know someone really well before you’ll let them see who you really are. Somehow resolving your deep ambivalent responses to circumstances empowers you. It is intense. However, you can honestly say you wouldn’t want to be anyone else.

Scorpio archetypes include:

  • The Detective
  • The Extremist
  • The Hypnotist
  • The Alchemist

Proper care and feeding of your Sun sign means:

  • Opening your feelings of compassion when you find something dark in others
  • Seeking opportunities for intensity, mystery and power
  • Learning how to be clear about your true motives when taking action.
  • Embracing the ongoing process of transformation in your life



P.S.: Sun Signs are only a very small part of Astrology.
