ElsaElsa » Why Is Scorpio Repulsive?

November 26th, 2014 @ 9:13 am by ElsaElsa

scorpio necklace with beadsRaven asked on, How To Raise A Scorpio Child, “Why is Scorpio so repulsive?”

I am not repulsed by Scorpio. I’m attracted. But I understand why this quality is associated with the sign.

It’s because Scorpio is magnetic. And a lot of people don’t like that.   Legions of people don’t like it.

The full moon in Gemini looks quite upbeat! Gemini loves anything and everything,  “interesting”. This full moon holds a lot of promise on that front!

The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus will all be in Air or Fire signs.  What a switch from all the delay, sluggishness and fear that has touched us all over the last few weeks.

In most essays and articles there’s usually a paragraph or two, sometimes it’s just a sentence, which remain etched in our memory after the rest of the article has morphed into a general impression of its subject matter. Here are two examples of this, from my own experience. I’ve returned to these two articles again and again; always the points made in these extracts “hit the spot” for me.…

interstellarTaking the leap.

As we sat in the dark, waiting for “Interstellar” to begin, there were some interesting coming attractions. The first that caught my eye was the latest, robot-feel-good flick, “Chappie” directed by Neil Blokamp (District 9 and Elysium), which stars Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel and Die Antwoord’s , Yolandi Visser. Without knowing too much about “Chappie” the trailer plot (filled in by yours truly) seems to be about a robot who is rejected, turned out onto the streets and befriended by street people. Can you see the rejected people/robot trope? In the course of a three-minute trailer, you can also see Chappie get humanized and beloved by his fellow rejects. Then it looks like Chappie gets in trouble, leads some sort of rebellion, and does so heroically. Get ready for scores of films comin’ acha , where the …

ElsaElsa » How To Raise A Scorpio Child

November 25th, 2014 @ 12:50 pm by ElsaElsa

scorpioocharmHi Elsa,

What advice if any, would you give to a parent of a child who is a Scorpio, 8th house, Pluto type. How does a parent explain to the child that is repulsive to so many that it will not always be this way?


Hi, M.

This is a great question, thanks.

“The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest things without it.” – Carl Jung

Here stands Sagittarius. The 9th sign of the ZodiacJupiter ruled and poised to to embark on an infinite quest for the meaning of life. The sentiment that “to travel, is better than to arrive ” fits into the archer’s philosophical framework like Nas’ flow over a Primo track.

The sense that there’s something greater “out there” and the ability to fuse that external search with the richness of their inner landscape is just one of the expressions that makes the centaur’s experience something to behold.

The Symbolism
Half Woman/Man and half horse. A centaur aiming his or her arrow into the boundlesswide open, metaphorical heavens. Yes, it all sounds very simple. However, there …

The symbolism of the Jupiter archetype is quite vast. Most commonly, the planet has been associated with the energies of expansion and abundance. As the largest planet in the solar system, anything which is of “mega” proportions could reside under Jupiter’s domain.

In addition, Jupiter is associated with religion. When we read or hear that word, there seems to be an instant formulation of a conclusion. However, I would like to discuss Jupiter’s link with religion in a much wider context; not as attached to any particular doctrine or dogma, but as a form of healing that’s offered within the spirit of the planet.

Proceeding from the premise that “religion” is: a general set of beliefs about life and what it means and locating the origins of the word which range from  “ligure”,  which is: to bind or connect. …

blueberry tea arizonaI’m a early morning, bird. I like to shop for groceries, soon after the store opens. I often pull into the number one parking spot, because I am the only customer there.

Today, I asked one of the stock men about ordering more blueberry tea. My husband loves it and it’s rarely in stock. There is only one store in the area that carries it.

He told me he would order extra, and beyond that, he’d hold a case for me in the back of the store. I’ve chatted with this man before. There is a good feeling of mutual respect between us, so I wasn’t surprised. I worked for Frito-Lay for years. I have an affinity with people who work in grocery stores.
