Scorpio’s Qualities and Lessons for Evolution

theawakenedstate:

SCORPIO

THOSE BORN BETWEEN APPROXIMATELY OCTOBER 21 – NOVEMBER 21

 

The Personality is developed from Aries to Virgo; the Soul is developed from Virgo to Pisces.

 

THE SUN REPRESENTS THE SOUL.  THUS, THE ENERGY IN WHICH OUR SUN IS LOCATED REVEALS THE SOURCE OF OUR CONSCIOUS AWARENESS—I AM SCORPIO.

 

ZODIAC ENERGY:  SCORPIO                     SYMBOLS:  Scorpion > Eagle > Phoenix

Scorpio’s 3 symbols depict each of the three levels of the evolutionary spiral for this Sign:  Scorpion = Totally Personality-Centered »> Eagle = Awakening to the Soul-Personality Relationship »> Phoenix = Soul-Centered Individual.

 

KEYWORD:  I CREATE

 

ELEMENT:  Water                                       QUALITY:  Fixed/Feminine or Negative

Masculine signs are Positive; Feminine signs are Negative.

 

          As a negative fixed energy, SCORPIO is interested in values and ideas.

 

PLANETARY RULERS

PERSONALITY LEVEL – Mars/Pluto                            SOUL LEVEL – Mars

 

OPPOSITE or POLARITY ENERGY:  Taurus

 

RULES:  SCORPIO rules the 8th house—————Taurus rules the 2nd house

 

RAY:  4th RAY of Harmony thru Conflict 

                   The rhythm of the 4th RAY flows from:  a relative state of harmony »> change appears »> tensions of struggle »> a battle »> death to the old form »>construction of a new form »> harmony.

 

BASIC SOUL PURPOSES:  A SCORPIO incarnation is an arduous one involving the search for transformation.  SCORPIO incarnated to win the battle of Armageddon within self, to engage in the struggles between the lower self’s desires and passions - and - the soul-centered Self.

          QUALITY TO OVERCOME:  Total selfishness.

          LESSON TO LEARN:  Self-sacrifice.

          MOTIVATED BY:  The urge to individualize and refine self.

 

BASIC NEEDS IN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIPS:

          MOST COMPATIBLE:  Cancer & Pisces

          COMPATIBLE ENERGIES:  Taurus, Virgo, & Capricorn

          INCOMPATIBLE ENERGIES:  Those of fire & air elements – often compatible                           Ascendant energies will largely overcome incompatibility.

          NEUTRAL:  SCORPIO

                   An intimate relationship with another SCORPIO means inability to recharge each other’s energy field.  There is a tendency to blend and “act as one element.”  Unless there are strong energizing elements present, there can be a slow starvation of the nervous system.  Conflict need not be present.

                   Attraction to others attuned to an element one lacks usually does not form the basis for a lasting relationship.  One or both end up saying, “We are too different.”

                   Relationships can be either “too intense” or “devitalizing” according to the energy combinations of both persons.  A strong reason for knowing the Soul Maps of those with whom we have close personal relationships.  We can work positively with what we know.

                   Sleeping together merges the energy fields and can dramatically affect each person’s state of health, for good or ill.  If in an intimate relationship with a neutral or incompatible Sun Sign, sleeping in separate beds/bedrooms can be very beneficial.  (Stephen Arroyo, Astrology, Psychology, & the Four Elements)

 

EVOLUTIONARY SPIRAL:  (According to Alan Oken, Soul-Centered Astrology) – as we grow holistically, we spiral upward from Totally Personality-Centered »> Awakening to Soul-Personality Relationship »> Soul-Centered Individual.

 

           Totally Personality-Centered Level – SCORPIO, on this level, is totally selfish.  The scorpion symbolizes the personality-centered SCORPIO.  She engages in a dance of death for total ego supremacy over everyone.  SCORPIO weaves a web of astral (emotional) energy into which she attracts her victims.  While they struggle within the web, SCORPIO can use her victims’ resources for her own advantage.  If SCORPIO remains unredeemed, the toxins within her web will eventually poison her and send her even further into the depths of the astral world.  SCORPIO’s destiny is then most often characterized by a series of self-annihilating experiences.  The purpose of these experiences is to create enough pain within SCORPIO to awaken her to her own latent forces for redemption.

this blew my mind somewhat

"Just" mental illness.

So there is this thing that has been bothering me for a while now…

I have a number of friends who experience both mental illness(es) and other chronic illness(es). These friends have often had trouble with getting correct diagnoses, specialist referrals, tests etc for their (physical) chronic…

ugh yes. though do you think those people are using ‘just’ instead of ‘only’. the difference being a separation rather than a comparison. as in ‘this problem isn’t exclusively a mental health issue, it’s  a physical health one too’. rather than ‘this is a physical health issue, not merely a mental health one [implied mental health isn’t as important or valid]. which i think are two different things a person can say. but either way i don’t think separating mental and physical health is easy, if possible. and maybe those people are suggesting mental illness doesn’t effect ones physical health or have any physical symptoms, which isn’t true. and i think mental illness (if prolonged) can be classified as chronic illness. i have experienced the separatist opinion from so many doctors who think physical and mental health don’t effect each other in a significant way and that mental health is easier to treat and deal with and that as long as one gets it’s mental health in check, physical health will follow. many doctors! :(

I think maybe it’s sometimes that, but mostly it is the tone, rather than the wording, that bothers me. Like, so often there is definitely a tone there that feels like implying “merely”, even when the word “just” isn’t used at all :/

(soz that wasn’t very eloquent… by brain is all jumbled from a thousand people wearing fragrances on PT… boooo!)

ah yep. i just realised too that the word ‘only’ can be used in the same way that ‘just’ is used dismissively but you got what i mean. and i get what you mean! sux about the fragrances in enclosed spaces :(. i hope the concert was good tho!!

and on that note…

i found a small tin of milo in my bedroom that i bought a while ago to add to my small stash of emergency illness food. i wish i’d thought of it years ago. so i had some in milk which is so ideal right now because i have my period and am low on Fe and milo has lots (apparently) and the milk balances out the acid from my period pain medication so i won’t get reflux and the more fluids the better. i’m only hoping the Fe actually gets absorbed because i heard it doesn’t absorb so well with dairy but if it does then i hope this little anecdote is somehow useful for someone.

No More Ramen

i know i’m not rly using tumblr atm, but i need to share this blog! no-more-ramen.tumblr.com

as much as i like ramen/2-minute noodles… i just found this tumblr which is super helpful for people who may relate to: chronic illness, specific dietary requirements, time poor, money poor, energy poor, spoonies, don’t know much about cooking, don’t have lots of cooking equipment, e.t.c., all of the above.

So according to the movie Back to the Future Part II, by the year of our lord 2015 there are supposed to be 19 movies in the Jaws franchise.  As of January 2014, there are only 4.  I personally see this as an enormous travesty, which is why I’m calling on the internet to rectify this grievous mistake.

I challenge the geek community, the web community, the YouTube community, the film community, the time travel community, the hypothetical Jaws community, and the local community college to answer my call and create 15 new JAWS feature-length movies before October 21st, 2015.

According to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, American Film Institute, and British Film Institute, a feature film has to be at least 40 minutes long.  So even if your film is 40 straight minutes of a rubber shark floating quietly in a bathtub, it still fulfills what I am asking of you in the challenge, and it is still probably a more entertaining watch than Jaws: the Revenge.

So grab your camera phones, a bucket, and that inflatable shark you bought at the dollar store, because it’s showtime.  Live-action, stop-motion, puppets, pencil animation, CG, piss on film- it doesn’t matter how you create the movie!  Just go and make the 2015 of Back to the Future II a reality.

Signal boost, if you please!

We are all for this challenge. 

Get cracking, world. This is amazing.

i have an idea for a script

i would like [someone else] to make one where after a cruel turn of events, (‘jaws’ the shark (is that the sharks name? i haven’t seen the films) witnesses a sinister and powerful human (bolin carnett) ordering a death on local sharks resulting in the murder of a beloved member of the shark community of the indian ocean) orders a cull on carnett and his own ‘community’ (the tax payers of cottesloe/liberal party supporters). to do this, jaws must break a 1000+ yr old silence between the sharks and octopuses who have the stealth and wit needed to navigate the dry, terrestrial space in which carnett and his supporters dwell. end act 1.

this would be so much more with nautiluses and cats if i wasn’t so tired and delirious and in pain. there’s a type of film style it should be in too but i don’t know the names of any film styles except noir and surrealist and neither of those fit. there’s gonna be some action but it’s not an ‘action film’ per se.

for those not in the know:

- colin barnett/bolin carnett is the premier of western australia

- he’s a member of the liberal (conservative/evil) party

- he recently ordered a cull on sharks off the wa coast following a fatal shark attack, despite outrage from everyone (including shark attack victims)

- his electorate/house/office is in cottesloe, a wealthy beachside suburb that consistently votes liberal and is full of mansions, old rich white anglo people, expensive boutiques with boring clothing and seagulls.

- cottesloe beach has pretty good surf for somewhere close to the city and accessed by public transport. subsequently there have been shark attacks around cottesloe more than other popular beaches (surfers flapping about in wetsuits looks like seals to sharks).

- octopuses are savvy

boganfemme:

But, like, also, sometimes I call it Australia Day, because there’s no shying away from the fact that Australia is this state that is kind of illegal and is kind if violent and colonial by nature. When I call it Australia, I don’t say it with pride, because Australia is a thing that happened to us. Not a state, not an identity, but a disaster and a continuing event and a monolith. When non-Indig people call it Invasion Day, it’s like they contemplate it with some temporality, like Australia isn’t going anywhere, but one day, the Great Reconciliation will end in some kind of forgiveness and they’ll move the date and then expect us to celebrate Australia without complaint. Like we’ll just fall into line and be Australian if only enough white people ~earn~ our forgiveness.

Watch Utopia

abo-futurist:

Utopia  

A documentary film by John Pilger a white australian journalist, on the oppression of aboriginal australians, partly focusing on the conditions of remote aboriginal communities under the NT “intervention”, particularly the community of Utopia, but also touching on history and other issues.

The films not perfect, obviously it’s from a white persons view point, and there are problems, but I think it deserves a watch, as white australians rarely see (or acknowledge) these things. 

 Warning for Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders: contains images and voices of those now deceased, and also images, stories, footage etc of violence and extreme suffering.

    

i am so inspired by the work of ying gao.
