Scorpio: The Scorpion
Scorpio: The Scorpion
I know not all of you Scorpios are sex addicts, drug addicts, and dominatrices. Anymore. In fact, I know you feel insulted that I would even imply that you aren’t past that stage now, that you aren’t above it all, and I know that (if you’ve evolved enough) you don’t want to be reminded of the basic thing that you once were (according to you). But is there such a thing as a basic Scorpio? Not at all. It doesn’t matter which day or decan you were born; if you’re a Scorpio you all share a common trait: the ability to reincarnate, and you can and will likely have to reinvent yourself many times in your life.
I’ve seen some of the most intense, focused, self-destruction taking place in all kinds of Scorpios — not just the addicts. I’ve seen the destruction on the emotional level, the physical level, and the psychological. When Scorpio is going to crash and burn, trust me, they’ve planned it, they know what they are doing, and you aren’t going to stop them. I’m not implying that Scorpio has suicidal tendencies; it just looks that way. Why come into this life with an apparent master plan to blossom and grow only to spontaneously ignite at will and end it all? There is a good reason and having been there, done that (and in the process of rising again, personally, so to speak) I will explain. I feel I’m an authority!
LIFE. DEATH. REBIRTH. While it may seem extreme, living, dying, and being born again are all part of Scorpio’s past life experiences. Of course they’ve lived before. But they’ve lived and died and reincarnated more times in one lifetime than most souls will ever see. Of course Scorpio needs to learn that being independent is good for them. Scorpio needs to learn that no matter how many times they think they got it wrong, they actually got it very right, ‘failures’ and all. Many Scorpios will say they feel they’ve lived a thousand times before and they are usually right. It does get a little tiresome but it makes for such excellent past life regression sessions!
The most important thing that Scorpios need to learn in their current lifetimes — whichever one they are in — is to love themselves more than they did in the life they lived before. I know what it’s like to be a Scorpio and alternately and simultaneously love and loathe myself. It took me two Saturn tours to finally understand that I don’t have to live hard, crash hard, and symbolically die hard to show others what it’s like to be me. I finally learned that I am not here to each anyone anything. Well, maybe I’m illuminating people’s paths when I feel it’s time to go up in flames!
Scorpio, love yourself, Even the dark parts of yourself that you’d sooner set on fire and pretend you never knew. Love everything about yourself even when you feel no one else does. Because you never know which lifetime you will decide will be your last. And while you rule life, death, and rebirth, all of this is voluntary — you don’t have to do it again! So, if this is to be your last life (as most of you will chime) make each reinvention of yourself better, stronger, and brighter than the last!
I know you’re coming back, anyway. You’re the original Badass. See you next time. 😉
I think the sign Scorpio is the one who suffers parenting the most. To a Scorpio, under normal circumstances, a parenting ‘fail’ is like getting the death card in the tarot: it’s over, you can’t go back and redo it, it is what it is, game over. When Scorpio does it ‘wrong’, according to their estimation, they don’t (always) lash out at other people; what Scorpio does is punish itself. Ever see the zodiac art with the scorpion turning tail and stinging itself? Exactly.
The Scorpio parent can get so fixed on perfect child rearing that any perceived mistake requires the only acceptable act of contrition: self-destruction. Though Scorpio types are able to (burn themselves down to the ground and) rise from the ashes while making it look effortless, hip, and sexy, only Scorpio will ever know the depth of torment they put themselves through before, during, and after their glorious resurrection. Part of the before and during process involves accounting for every parenting fail Scorpio can think of (Scorpio’s ability to resurrect past transgressions, including their own, is legend). It doesn’t matter if the perceived failure included, but was not limited to, the original procreation (or fornication); Scorpio will go as far back as they deem necessary. They may even spontaneously regress into their own uterine limbo where they are pretty f*****g sure they premeditated future mistakes.
Do you know what Hara-kiri is? Scorpio does. (Good thing they’ve got that whole phoenix routine down.) Scorpio, there’s no need to expect your version of perfect parenting from yourself. Because there is no such thing as perfect parenting. And unless you have a Virgo ascendant like I do, this should be pretty easy to understand: do your best. Just do your best and remember that your spawn will turn out just fine so long as you forgive yourself the same way you taught them to forgive everyone else. Happy parenting, Scorp!
ASTRO-MINDER™ Thursday, July 3, 2014: If you feel like things are picking up speed it’s because they are. Mercury is direct and gaining momentum. Most of you will notice there are suddenly several irons in the fire and they look a whole lot like the irons from the end of May; that’s because they are. This is a good thing, trust me! You do trust me, don’t you? C’mon. I’d never hurt you. I LOVE you too much!
This is the third and last time you’ll have to go over these same wrinkles to iron them out for good! So be sure to do what you have to do, get it right this time, use some spray starch if you have to, but get things smoothed out as best as you can. We’ve talked about the sense of discomfort that we will feel around the 4th. If tomorrow, July 4th celebrations, in the USA aren’t really appealing to you because you’re feeling kind of “off”, then mind your instincts and just stay at home.
If you have pets, of course, protect their sensitive ears from fireworks and be sure they are secured so they don’t bolt out of your yard and into a road or street. My pretty chocolate labrador went missing one year for many hours and I thought I would never see her again. Monty, my 20-year-old, thought to, um, water a tree with his scent so the dog could smell him and her way home if she’d become lost or was disoriented. It sure did work: Truffle showed up exhausted and a bit worse for the wear, and now I never cease marveling at the power of pee!
Be safe, my friends. Don’t drink or do drugs and then drive ANYTHING because you could kill someone or a few people and you’ll likely live to see the rest of your life in prison. That’s if you don’t end up in a vegetative state the rest of your life. Think on that.
God bless you all! Happy 4th!

Scorpio, someone new is in your life or someone new is coming. Trust me, I checked this one with two other sources because I am perplexed as you may be! I even checked a cheap app because this is so out of the box! At least my box — I digress.
The newness factor is not one that may necessarily be a romantic situation though I will admit — and do not hurt me! — that it appears romantic, to say the least. Perhaps you are already in a good relationship where there was stagnation and now there is new movement: you will be able to tell if this newness is already in that relationship, something like a change of some kind or even a change in your view of this person. If you are in a romantic relationship and you don’t like where it’s going, suspect you’ve not been dealt with fairly or there is some level of lie or dishonesty present, then more than likely someone new emerges on the relationship scene to balance that factor. I hope my readers are not married Scorpions! This emphasis is on seeing someone in a new light, light perhaps shed on an illusion presented, or some level of being mislead. This does NOT mean that all Scorpions are being lied to, only the Scorpions whose guts have been indicating the same will get what I’m writing. Bear with me, please!
This new person, newness, seems like a new person emerges or the person you are now involved with is showing his or herself in their true colors. Whether that is good or bad only you could tell me. I could give you personal accounts of what I’m thinking and muck this up further.
My friends, fans, and everyone else follows me because “Rita tells it like it is” but I feel like I about to yank on some molars here or bring a very bright spark to others! I do not like writing my own but in this case, I’m kind of having a good time with it as I have not been happy with the status quo, personally. If you think I write astrology for kicks, you are wrong! I write it to help others and like last week, I have a WTF moment myself!
Try being me for a moment with thousands of followers, everywhere, and try removing yourself from the equation! I do it with prayer, that is all I can say.
Scorpio natives, I don’t color anything about your scopes because you of all people would see right through me. What I see is someone new entering your life if your love life is unsatisfactory, if you’ve felt you’ve been lied to or dealt with unfairly, and if your love life has shown no issue, it’s a very exciting time for you, indeed! It tells me you’ve made the right choices and you are partnered with the right persons. If you are partnered with Aries, doubly so, though there will be plenty of power tussle to entertain you — but it will not smother you.
The time is right to see this newness, this reality of the other person’s projection, and to act accordingly! Scorpio is promised a year filled with much luck and romance and in Chinese astrology writings I have even told you that out of the blue you change your strong willed mind and marry someone or take up house play with them. If you are in a relationship that does not suit you, the Full Moon in Leo illuminated flaws to make them visible for all to see, including you. The influence of heavenly bodies in Aries, such as they were or are, reminds you to take care of yourself, of number one, as no one else seems to be much concerned for your welfare: that should indicate which personal relationship I’m talking about.
The time is now, dear Scorpion, Phoenix, Eagle, to rise up from the recent reality of substandard and seek this newness, this new reality that you have created, if only via the need to have your needs met, to be treated with dignity and honesty, not lies and illusion.
Scorpio, all I can say is you know best, you know who you are dealing with, you know where the lies are, and who is telling them. If this seems strange to you — be glad! I cannot see your natal chart of course. But in general, Scorpio is advised his or her instincts are correct, if false and fallacy are present, they will soon be illuminated for all — and I mean ALL — to see. You will not suffer this but the karma of the next person should be barometer and detector.
Contemplate: If things have been great, Scorpio, your relationships are with particular signs, sun or rising. I dare not post what they are for many reasons. If your relationship has been bumpy or questionable, someone new enters to correct the imbalance and you have done your time, per se, and taught your students their lessons.

Scorpio, you’ve had more than one WTF? moment as of late that reminds you of too much you went through last year. And thinking the new year would ring in something more pleasant or at least not as disruptive has proven, seemingly, for naught. Even the idea that the first month of this year would be different from the last few months has proven futile. You can imagine, since I am also Scorpio, that I do not prefer to write these words but regardless, I’m not the only Scorpion in the sand. With that said, I will say this: it’s not you, it IS everyone else, can you believe I’m writing this? Well, believe it and hear me out on this: many things carried over from last year are certainly not your fault at this time. Perhaps you could take broom and pan and wipe everyone and everything out of your life that is complicating it or otherwise disrupting your life. But that’s only going to solve one problem and broom and pan are far too simple for the complexities of entanglement. What you need to remember is this: you may have to deal with some things that are not your own, you may have to handle some situations that you did not create, and though it is, admittedly, depressing you at this time, it’s not going to last forever and you are famous for taking value out of the useless and pointless, if only to remind yourself that it is not all a waste of time. And good for you, it will preserve your sanity — and perhaps spare someone’s life! — if you can see things this way. If you can’t alter the current course of events at this time then find a way to alter your life, even if that means you deliver some words, news, advice, or other so called unpleasant information to the next person. But while you’re at it, pay attention: what you see is not what you get. Some one is not being honest with you, has not been, and it could be host and council of people, likewise, it could be a situation that was not accurately represented to you that now causes you more than chagrin. Take your time, see clearly, think clearly, and act accordingly. I will not add that “this too shall pass” because it will not if you do not push it into the court where it belongs: away from you. You’re now looking for the ideal love you’ve honed, thought of, analyzed, and considered through so many trials and errors. This is a good time to realize that you have nothing but good, in that sense, to look forward to if you’ve done your homework and paid your dues–which you have — you are one of the few who has literally inherited nothing but lessons but, my dear Scorpio, that means you finally know what you are doing, what you need to do, so you need to stick it out a little longer and STICK to your principals and needs. Everyone else has their lessons and tasks; they are not yours. All you need do is be yourself, just as you suspected.
Contemplate: Not much more you can learn in this world when you’ve taken all the tests. No need to teach to others who cannot comprehend. With that said, Scorpion, get the broom out and use the pan — and do a thorough job.
