It is the best of zodiac signs, it is the worst of zodiac signs. Welcome to Scorpio season: a time when nature gets ready to take a much deserved break. I’ve noticed a trend with Scorpio people. They always seem sweet and pleasant on the surface – but when you get to know them….
The lessons of success and failure remain timeless. I understand now that both failure and success are temporary. If you fail, you shouldn’t hide in your room with a bottle of whiskey because life always shows up with second chances and third chances. If you succeed, you should remain humble and plan for rainy days because who knows what’s around the corner?
Why do we find it so difficult to cut people out of our life when we KNOW they’re bad for us? In the case of toxic relationships – where there is abuse, bullying and violence – the answer is obvious, clear and there for everyone to see. In other less dangerous situations, it may not be as obvious. Nothing seriously ‘bad’ has happened, but… things are simply not working.
We must clean out the old, dated and worn out. If we don’t clear out the old, nothing new can come in. We must choose our priorities, and burn everything that does not serve us.
It’s been a tough week. One where I’ve had to make very difficult decisions. Face some hard truths. Do things I’d rather not. Make necessary but painful decisions about who stays in my life and who goes. Embodying the energy of the Suit of Swords is not something that comes easily to me. When the choice is between preserving yourself and destroying another, what do you choose?
It’s so easy to get caught up in this daily grind stuff and wake up one day and find that too many years have gone by and your dreams are all dead and that it’s too late to do anything about it. It’s so easy to settle for being a big fish in a small pond. It’s so easy to abandon your own vision and support someone else’s. It’s easy because you never have to take responsibility for yourself or really build something that’s truly yours.
In the past 3 years, I feel like I’ve lost touch with that ‘watery’ side of myself. Even when I have written about the Suit of Cups, my musings have been limited to Mr. Mopey from the 5 of Cups and Mr. and Mrs. Nostalgia from the Six of Cups. Regardless of what zodiac sign you are – those are not easy life situations to deal with. And for a water sign, that energy can be particularly strong, toxic and lasting. Our feelings and emotions run far deeper than those of fire, air or earth signs.
