Scorpio 2013


Year of the Water Snake

Love

Money

Health

It’s a progressive year for you, Scorpio. 2013 is bright with intrigue, knowledge, growth and transformation. Past work or projects can be fruitful this year. Imagination flows, ideas are creative and life is bright with potential. Trends turn to elegance, culture, travel and sensuality. It’s a renaissance year, and you’re in your element.

In the Year of the Water Snake, you’re a smooth operator. Your passionate nature finds expression, and your Water element flows in harmony with that of the graceful Snake year. The Snake’s fixed element, Fire, stirs ambition and motivation, balanced by reason and cool rationale. You make swift and steady progress this year.

You’re tenacious, hard-working and independent. Your survival skills are keen. You can move the earth to get what you want, but it’s usually not necessary. Your charismatic charm can melt even the coldest heart. Your capacity for self-expression is enormous. You love deeply and passionately. You have an offbeat and sometimes cynical sense of humor, a vigorous sex drive and remarkable eyes.

Your intuition is usually accurate. You have colorful dreams and a rich imagination. The past is important to you. Your powers of healing and recuperation are good. You have a unique and multi-faceted life philosophy. You’re a complex thinker, but can be prone to worry, obsession or anxiety. You may have a fiery temper. You can be overly suspicious, and sometimes just plain paranoid. You have an infuriating stubborn streak.

Your desire for knowledge is unquenchable. You value honesty.

Whatever you do, you do with all your heart.

In the Year of the Snake, still waters run deep. Take nothing for granted. Avoid acts of impulse or vengeful thinking. Choose compassion over aggression. 2013 is not a good year for gambling, speculation or blind leaps of faith. Poor communication and breaches of trust can have severe repercussions. You’re wise not to worry about problems, as obsession and anxiety can make you sick. Instead, focus on solutions. Do not dwell in the past.

 

Spirit of Cat

The Spirit of Cat brings sensual indulgence, patience and playfulness into your life. Cat energy heightens the physical senses, and enhances magical energies and psychic awareness.

A natural hedonist, Cat loves luxury and can sleep all day, but pounces with deadly precision when the moment is right. When attuned to mystical Cat energy, you will know exactly when to act, and when to bide your time.

The Spirit of Cat also invites you to free your “inner kitten” and play. Just as kittens learn life skills while playing, you can use playtime to learn something new.

Too much Cat energy can have negative consequences, such as procrastination and lethargy.

The pursuit of pleasure can interfere with other issues in life. Enjoy Cat energy and indulge your desires, but maintain a healthy balance.

Interesting…

Researching,and realized my birth totem is the Snake.In Tangiers I was attracted to Cobra’s and took many pictures of them.When I returned home I brought a statue of a Cobra with red beaded eyes that was given too me as a gift.
During this time I played the ouija board and the cobra’s eyes actually glowed.It frightened me at the time and I threw it out a third floor window.I never retrieved it.

Snake

Because of its ability to periodically shed its skin, the snake represents transformation, change, and renewal. And those born with Snake as their birth totem are inclined to shed their skins by way of making dramatic, and sometimes drastic, changes in their lives from time to time, letting go of their current ties and attachments, and starting again anew. They may make sudden decisions such as to quit their job, or change their occupation, or sell their house, or move to a new city, or totally reinvent themselves. Sometimes, however, they make these changes at inopportune times, thereby causing unnecessary upset and suffering to themselves as well as to others.

Change isn’t necessarily always easy for Snake people, but they are adaptable to anything that is new to them. For Snake people, their lives are usually a lifelong transformation. They may start out making changes that are for purely selfish reasons.
However, as the Snake person goes through life, their selfish changes will usually eventually transform into more constructive changes which benefit not only themselves, but others as well. Snake people may also start out as insensitive and hurtful towards others, (see note below) but then their ability to wound will usually turn into the ability to heal. Snake people can be especially helpful to those suffering from alcoholism or drug abuse.

It has taken me many years to feel the power of the Phoenix.I was that Scorpion on the ground,stinging anything and everything that got in my way 🙂
Including myself.
When I knew the Dark Nights of my Soul were killing me I aspired to be a Eagle and fly free.
Blogging has opened up a new way of expressing myself.

At present I am in the process of slowing my incessant Chatter in my brain.

I feel like an Energized Bunny devouring an encyclopedia at times.

My sister always says “You are a open book”
My reply is “all the better to read and understand”
Sometimes I feel I am just getting started figuring out the real me.
You know what?
The Journey never ends.

My personal totem has always been the Dragonfly

Now that I am older I am drawn to the Phoenix
