Scorpio's "inner being" ?

topic posted Tue, July 15, 2008 - 6:10 PM by  alallaalalaaaa
Interesting , i've thought about it randomly ... but what exactly is a scorpios hidden self / inner being ?
is it even kept away (for the most part)from lovers?

    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)
  • 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?
      • There are 11 time zones in Russia .......
        • Negativland references are always appreciated...

            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.
          • christianity is stupid.
            • 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.

    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.
