Scorpio is a
Fixed (stabilization, determination, depth and persistence)
Water (cooperative, companionable, hospitable and sociable)
and straddles Samhain,
the time of the year when the veil between worlds is the thinnest.
Scorpios are self-confident, intelligent,
and strong-willed offering their opinion whether you like it or not.
Ruled by Mars
they will resort to cutting verbal
and physical violence when angered;
and like Mars it’s symbol also uses the “Broken Cross”
(arrow at the end)
signifying a quick movement through matter.
is associated with Transmutation
beginning with the Scorpion:
reactionary and hard pressed to get more then a basic self-centered response.
Once they grow older,
Scorpio becomes the Eagle,
still set apart yet with a much better perspective;
allowing them to see beyond their own issues
and encompasses a broad view.
Finally they evolve into the Phoenix:
harnessing their experience of the Human Condition,
allowing their perspective to stretch beyond
even the whole of the Human Experience.
Thus the short phrase “I Create”
applies to both their inward progression
and the outward response to their drive of self Transmutation,
producing a fierce beauty in their wake.
The Scorpio Amulet holds the classic Glyph of Scorpio:
double crescents with the arrow
(cross of movement) at its tail;
the symbol is encircled by a deeply cut frame
and textured with turbulent water.
This amulet is for both the Scorpio sun and moon signs:
The Sun signs are those of the Zodiac houses
under which you are born:
October 23 – November 22,
or if you are more concerned with your moon sign,
the house the moon occupied while you were born.
It may also be used as an amulet
should you wish to emphasize the qualities of Scorpio in your life,
actions, position in your community or home;
perfect for those who are Artists or in professional careers
such as medicine chemistry and physics,
yet good in any task that requires sound judgment and creativity.
