The Three Stages of Evolution of Scorpio

topic posted Fri, March 19, 2010 - 3:43 PM by  Ronzoni
One belief I've always had to why Scorpio is the most misunderstood sign in the zodiac, and often frowned upon as the "black sheep sign" by conventional thought, is because Scorpio is actually the only sign in the Western zodiac to have three totems of evolution, in contrast to the two totem tier of the other eleven signs..............yet, unfortunately, many Scorpios tend to be caught in the earthly trap of their own undoings under the Scorpion stage of evolution, and they're the ones who spark the most attention conventionally, thus offering the sign a bad rap traditionally.

Yet, Scorpio is also the sign of beginnings and endings, particularly because the sign of Libra seeks balance between summer and winter, while Scorpio is a sign that clings to the remnants of a previous life that blossomed, yet also is willing to face the encroaching shadow of age, and the inevitability of death, where it's there Scorpio seeks a more compulsive interaction with others, and do so by delving below the surface and into the heart of the matter, for the purpose of preparing a more spiritual and fertile future.

Thus, while destructive qualities are linked to lower-evolved types of Scorpio (Charles Manson, for instance) Scorpio is also a sign of healing and great compassion, where higher-evolved Scorpios, who are able to rid themselves of the tendency to be judgmental, and rather temper their insight with compassion, are known to be some of the greatest leaders and respected figures in the world.

That's why I believe it's important to reiterate the three stages of evolution of Scorpio, for indeed there is much more to the sign than the Scorpion symbol itself:


First Stage: A "stage one" Scorpio exercises power through emotion and instinct. This Scorpio is symbolized by the scorpion, an insect more likely, in the end, to sting itself rather than others. Aggression and instinct are particular features of the Scorpion aspect, which is where the tendency to potential destructive behavior and competitiveness resides.

Second Stage: A "stage two" Scorpio is symbolized by the Golden Eagle and exercises power through the intellect. Golden Eagle Scorpios show signs of maturity above Scorpion Scorpios in that they possess the ability to see what others miss, discern hidden motives, and discover deeper truths beneath the surface of life. This can prove to be either beneficial or exploitative, where while Golden Eagles can indeed use these skills to help invent new medicines, save a patient's life, successfully psychoanalyze the problems of others and help them find purpose, etc., because Scorpios also are known for valuing power and wealth as well, Golden Eagles are nonetheless not above exploiting others to suit their own purposes or interests, and can be used deceptively if not guarded.

Third Stage: A "stage three" Scorpio is symbolized by the Dove of Peace and the Phoenix, which exercises power through love, healing and transformation. The Phoenix represents a Scorpio who has been transformed, and has reached deep within him/herself to embrace the more subtle, mystical qualities of the soul, rather than ones ego, and in result soar to spiritual heights like a bird on the wing. The tendency to be judgmental and power-obsessed is gone, and rather the observational talents of Scorpio are fused with compassion rather than judgment, defeating a life of extremes and polarities and finding greater purpose through self-spiritual development.


So, indeed, it is no accident why Scorpio is often referred to as the most complex and misunderstood sign in the Western Zodiac, as well as it being generally believed that a Scorpio's path to enlightenment is the most difficult in the entire Western Zodiac. Unfortunately, some famous Scorpios, like Charles Manson, have struggled to transmute their desires and impulses into emotional purity and constructive energy, and rather have, in failing to curb their excessive power and intensity, have allowed their dark instincts to get the best of them and fuse into destructive energy and mannerisms publicly.

It truly is a shame, because Scorpio is truly a remarkable sign where, when a native born with a Sun under this sign is self-actualized, can offer the utmost love and compassion to the world with an incandescent beaconing. And if many more can look beyond the commonly-established negative stereotypes of Scorpio and understand the full evolution and meaning of the sign, it would indeed be a most encouraging, hopeful sign.
