Scorpio II

November 3 -11
Depth

The Scorpio II period takes Depth as its central image. In the Scorpio II period, contact is made with unconscious and chthonic forces capable of effecting transformative changes in a person.

The days which comprise Scorpio II symbolically reveal the more serious side of human life, and the ability to go beyond ordinary experience through a revelation, metamorphosis and probing of the internal and external world. As when oil is struck and a geyser explodes, tremendous energies can be released from the deep layers of the unconscious. Such energies must of course be well-directed or destruction could easily result. Ideally, powerful new insights may result at this time.

The Scorpio II Personality

Scorpio II people are profound individuals who are in touch with the dark side of life. Generally Scorpio II’s are not in a big hurry. They generally feel that time is on their side and are thus able to wait. Metamorphic change may be effected in themselves and their lives over many years- slowly and unseen. However, those born in Scorpio II must be careful that waiting for the right moment does not itself become the principle activity, a kind of procrastination. The danger here is that such static behavior will lead to brooding, and brooding to depression. During such periods Scorpio II’s must beware that their dark side does not come to dominate their outlook.

It could be said that Scorpio II’s have a big advantage in that they are in touch with deep areas of their personalities which others may only sense occasionally, if at all. Whether a Scorpio II makes something out of this understanding remains to be seen. Part of the problem is that although in touch with their deeper thoughts, imaginings and emotions, some Scorpio II’s never come to terms with their own profundity. That is, they are confused as to how their deeper understanding of life fits in with ordinary life, making a living, and so on. Furthermore, dredging up such material from the unconscious can be dangerous business and threaten to push more unstable personalities over the edge. For Scorpio II’s to find a healthy balance, a give and take with their Plutonic self is a tremendous challenge, but one that can yield valuable results.

Scorpio II’s respond instinctively to the heavier aspects of the human condition. Not only do they tend to sleep more deeply than most people, but also feel more deeply as well. Indeed, some born in Scorpio II can become slaves to the pleasures of the table and the bed, and must be careful that such activities do not come to dominate their lives. For Scorpio II’s, words often just get in the way. Many born in this period can effectively express admiration or affection, or on the other hand disapproval and discontent without needing to speak at all.
