Welcome to our November Monthly Horoscope 2017 For All Zodiac Signs!
Theme of the Month:
An Exercise in Vulnerability
More times than not, people interact with other people at their own personal comfort level. They reach out to people they way they want to be interacted with. If they don’t want people to dig deeply into their business, they keep things shallow. But if they want to have others know their own deepest feelings and thoughts, they must open themselves up and become vulnerable.
This is where Scorpio natives or people with strong Scorpio energy often face challenges – vulnerability.
Scorpio is an all-or-nothing energy. It tends to extremes – black or white, good or bad, right or wrong, birth or death. There is no gray area with Scorpio energy, unless it is deeply influenced by its placement in a chart or another sign, and even then it’s a pretty minuscule patch of gray, more a parking spot for assessment rather than a true gray area of compromise.
Most Scorpios interact with others from a position of investigation and observation, learning where those others are most vulnerable. They look for the deeper signs and the hidden messages behind the actions and behaviors. They ask the deeper, more personal and invasive questions – all in an effort to learn where others are most vulnerable…so they can attack those others before they themselves are attacked by those others.
Scorpios are so emotionally sensitive and deep, they often feel extremely vulnerable to others even if that is not the actual reality of the matter. Often on the defensive, in order to protect themselves, they’ll tend to seek the depths of others first to learn and know what they are dealing with, then gradually (or suddenly) open themselves up to their deepest inner truths as they feel the other(s) can be trusted…or they may shut down and shut out those they find they cannot trust or clearly perceive.
Yet for most Scorpios, others are a threat to their deepest emotional truths. Others threaten their emotional core – their “dark places” that they don’t want anyone to know about…except the major little fact that they really do want someone to know about them. That’s the thing: Scorpios are always ultimately seeking that one person who they can open themselves up to and share themselves with completely and fully, without fear of being judged, criticized, or ostracized.
Scorpio is a water sign – an emotion-based energy and an intuitively-driven energy. That is an important thing for people to realize and recognize – that Scorpio energy response or reaction is almost always based in emotional feeling or mental perception initiated by emotional or intuitive feeling. If they feel safe, they open. If they don’t, they stay closed or they ‘sting’ or attack.
Scorpios can be very passionate and emotionally engaged with others AND they can be very emotionally manipulative and great at getting others to do their bidding, remaining in power and control of the situation the entire time. Both expressions are performed by playing to the emotional aspects of the person they intend to engage or manipulate once they’ve gotten a clear assessment of said person’s vulnerabilities.
Which version of Scorpio you get depends on which extreme of Scorpio you’ve triggered in the process:
If you’ve triggered the happy and safe side of Scorpio, you’ll notice that they are loyal, sometimes to a fault. They assist you with passion and zeal, and they may be almost obsessive in their actions to do be of assistance to you. They may also be addicted to the emotions they feel when they are being of service to or in relationship with you.
However, if you’ve triggered the unhappy and unsafe side of Scorpio, you’ll notice that they will quickly if not immediately cut you off and cut you out. And their cutting off may not be immediate – Scorpios can be a highly vengeful…and they can wait for their revenge. They are methodical and patient in how they go about exacting their payback – and it’s usually a long and complicated process, but well worth the time and effort if they feel that hurt or betrayed. Payback is an important step for Scorpios – for them to let go of their ‘addiction”, they must feel like the matter is completed, and they often believe that they must complete it themselves if it’s going to get done right.
And if you are able to take control or assert power over a Scorpio who is trying to hold power over you, good luck with that. Scorpio will not easily forget your efforts – intentionally or unintentionally – to take the power and control out of their hands. Those who are overpowered (and they are rarely overpowered) will likely take the vengeance route to correct the matter. Many a Scorpio has dragged a situation or circumstance out way longer than necessary just to be right, to be vindicated, or to seize back power or control in the end. Keep in mind that sometimes, the only way to bring a vengeance dynamic, an obsession-addiction, or a power struggle to an end is to walk away from it completely, to surrender your position (give up trying to be “right” about it), or to allow the whole matter to self-destruct. Only in the end can a new beginning be found.
Each of us has a Scorpio component in our charts, even if it lays relatively dormant unless activated by another person. So in this month of Scorpio:
- Notice where all-or-nothing choices tend to occur in your life. In which area(s) of your life do you tend to go to extremes?
- Also notice where you are addicted or obsessed with certain outcomes in your life.
- Pay attention to how certain things in your life are coming to an end…and consider what they may be clearing space for. What may be coming to you in their place(s)?
- And most important, notice which subjects or matters in our life feel the most vulnerable for you. What are you afraid to let go of in this area of your life? What are you afraid will come in its place? Who are you afraid you will or won’t become if you allow yourself to be vulnerable?
Look at where Scorpio falls in your astrological chart for guidance in how to utilize this energy in your personal life journey. For more information and insights, see the November 2017 Horoscope for your zodiac sign.
New Moon in Scorpio – November 18, 2017
This New Moon in Scorpio marks another momentous crossroads for humanity. The sign Scorpio rules death, as well as transformation. Its ruler is Pluto, the Greek god of the Underworld, the terrain of the “unconscious”.
What needs to die this month before it can be reborn? Scorpio is the only astrological sign that has three symbols- the Scorpion (physical), the Eagle (psychological) and the Phoenix (spiritual)- showing that there are three levels of transformation to be achieved before true metamorphosis can occur.
