Interesting , i've thought about it randomly ... but what exactly is a scorpios hidden self / inner being ?

    I like to think "hidden self" means "dark side."

    People tend to hide the things they dislike about themselves, the things they refuse to accept is true.

    But then, everyone has a dark side, not just Plutonians.

      Revealing the "hidden self" (not necessarily a "dark side") opens one up to judgement and that is something Scorpios hate.

      To be scrutinized and judged is frightening and it makes them less likely to reveal any "hidden self"


      note: by close friends/loved ones, not the general public (unless afflicted otherwise in their natal chart)

    Well, you may want to check out a topic that Evin posted sometime back regarding Scorpio and their shadows. I think that should shed some light on Scorpio's "inner being."

      I think everyones' inner being or self is different from everyone elses no matter what the sign.

      .....................You dont know the power of the dark side

      why do we get this reputation for being dark and ominous? I find it annoying.

        I second that.

        There are so many astrological profiles of Scorpios that paint this ridiculous picture by making generalizations that they're almost laughable. I like joking about being evil squared since my rising sign and my sun sign are both Scorpio, but to me it's more poking fun at the stereotypes and generalizations that I find to not be true.

        Apparently we're all brooding goths who sacrifice small children and worship the devil, wear all black, and are into S&M underneath.

    Singularity makes a good point; revealing the inner self opens one up to judgement. I definately hate that. I'd add that it also takes away some of Scorp's sense of control to reveal everything; it give the other the power.

      What IS the inner self though ? is it a lot of sensitivity or something?

            Maybe ignorants think that scorpio dark side its related to scorpios being " goths who sacrifice small children and worship the devil, wear all black, and are into S&M underneath. "
            But to go to opposite and deny scorpios connection with the dark side its ignorance as well.
            Scorpio is associated with the dark aspects of human psychology more than other, flighty signs, couse those flighty signs are affraid to face a darkens within themself and others. So they go on and live carefee, but are only half alive ,couse they dont get to the core.
            Scorpio can go from extreme hights to extreme lows, live and feel its emotions in full range from heaven to hell.
            Not all scorpios are intrested in occult but it does comes in package with the sign,but of course it all depends on a person, yada,yada

              Um, I think you miss my point. I was poking fun at generalizations about outward personality traits based on astrology. As you stated in your last sentence, "...of course it depends on a person." My commentary was more in agreement with someone on stereotypes and generalizations, ones that I sometimes find laughable.

                  Ana - I used to run around with the goth crowd here in town years ago but then had 1 of 2 near death experiences that completely rebooted my paradigm about such thngs should look at the you tube videos of that saturday night live series of skits they did when Molly Shannon and Chris Kattan were still on the show ... that's precisely what I mean ... it's just silly ...

                      Ok, but Im not goth, i didnt say that scorpios are all about being goth. I do like to wear black, i do like goth fashion,goth pictures ,some of goth music but thats about it.
                      Hm ok so maybe i am a little gotish, but i really like some other stuff too and i dont like to stamp myself or put myself in one specific category

                        What about Pisces?? I'm not goth either really.. but I lean toward the goth side lol. I've always loved to wear a lot of black, I shop at Hot Topic all the time, I also love industrial, darkwave music, etc. (but hate heavy metal)... I've never categorized myself though. I don't think I really fit into any category.

              ok, that was a reference to negativland references. nevermind.

              anyhow--scorpio, dark, s & m, blah, what-the-fuck-ever.
              i like humpin, & i will occasionally ask the hard probing questions a lot of people don't like, but i've also had people, non-scorpio, catch me off guard now & then.

              also, goth is just as fucking stupid as christianity.
              of course, i do kinda like bauhaus sometimes.
              i must be a scorpio.

                Oh, I definitely caught the reference ;).

                I'm not personally knocking people who are goth, though it's not really my cup of tea. I also appreciate early Bauhaus, but I find that it fits in particularly well with a lot of late 70s/early 80s post-punk stuff that I'm into.

        What is the inner self of a scorpio?

        I don't think even the scorpio knows for sure. Perhaps it's a big lump of mush and vulnerability that the scorpio protects with fervor. Whatever it is, it's likely to be different for every scorpio, but certainly worthy of protecting.

          I suspect most scorps "tough-guy" image is probably some kind of Ram-envy. Most are tough, but more in a low-key undercover-agent style. I have noticed this in certain male libras too (also scorps in disguise): many love to appear like arrogant "hard men" playing with rifles & uniforms in the woods! Designer-bag scorps.

    You can use this link to a book called Inside Degrees.
    This is from a topic in the astronuts tribe. Credits go to mem for the link.
    The book gives you insight into your sign in the degree it is in using Chandra symbols.

    For example I have Sun in Cancer 9°21’41"
    You then round up to the next number, for me it is 10..

    CANCER 10
    A violent hail storm.
    Great disruption serves long-term continuity. By submitting yourself periodically to excruciating soul ordeals, to severe tests and trials, you make sure that your destiny is self-renewing. You pull in, at these junctures, what is alien or strange or far removed from your own way of being; by suffering the imposition of the dark stranger, you completely shake up all smug structures. Much of your life is keyed into enduring under onslaught, being able to form yourself into one who can encompass absolutely anything. The path indicated is neither chaotic nor random. It is sharply pointed to take on experiences and lessons that are needed and to fully transmute the karmic sequences. You have a core commitment to tackling the hard stuff with a fury of intent that is just enough to make the whole thing work, revealing that you can do the impossible if your will is singular and your inner strength to go the distance is as solid and real as any obstacle, and even more so.

    You can use this for your moon rising and the rest. I’m not saying that this anyone’s inner being. But it does go beyond Sun sign generalizations.

    Lovers come and go... why would I risk it?

    I am not even sure about the extent or the amount of power, darkness, I have at my disposal.... I severely doubt that any non-scorpio person can ever really understand the depths we have and have to live through on a daily basis anyways.

    I have inner demons... and they scare even me. So fuck it. I'm not letting them loose because my lover wants "inside me". I believe that everyone is entitled to an untouched part of their inner self. That no one is allowed to venture into. Not even the most trusted person. If that makes me heartless, then so be it.

    Which makes me wonder... do we walk the "path" alone? God knows I prefer it.

    I am a scorpio rising.

    As much confidence I do excude in my dealings with people, and that I do have in myself, I have moments of deep insecurity. When I find myself liking a man of interest, I start to pick myself apart feeling that I am not good enough for him. It stems from knowing that there will always be someone smarter, more physically attractive and talented than I am, and I want my man to have the best. It all comes down to eradicating those thoughts out of my mind, and knowing that I am good enough, and if he likes me, he is accepting me as I am. Overall, I do have moments of insecurity that run through my mind every now and then, when it occurs, I have to do a lot of positive self talk, reinforcing myself. I think that's all apart of growing, maturing and being comfortable with who you are as a person.
