October 23rd marks the start of the 8th zodiac sign, Scorpio.
The symbol for Scorpio is the Scorpion. Just like the Scorpion, this sign is secretive and often deadly. Scorpios live their lives to the extremes. Good or bad, they are powerful and intense. They are also very mysterious. You never truly know what is going on inside a Scorpio’s mind and heart. They have many levels of depth and have a aura of mystery around them.
The planets associated with Scorpio is Pluto and Mars. Pluto is the planet of transformation and rebirth. These people typically go through a lot of difficult changes in their life, but all in the process of growth. They are also connected to Mars, planet of action and passion. As such, these natives are very driven individuals, usually pursuing careers they are passionate for. They live this way in general, following their intense passions.
Scorpios are ruled by the element of Water. Water is connected to emotions, intuition, mystery and the psychic. As so, Scorpios have a reputation of being very mood-driven people. Joy, sadness, anger…they feel it all intensely. With their mysterious quality, sometime you won’t even know why they’re upset until they unleash their emotion at you in a storm. With this water element associated with them as well, most Scorpios are empaths, psychics, or very intuitive.
To help Scorpios connect to their sun sign energy, here are some stones associated with this zodiac symbol.
A stone of passion, this base chakra stone increases drive and motivation, bringing forth creativity and passion. It also connects to the Third Eye, increasing a Scorpio’s spiritual development.
This stone’s intensity is a perfect match for those psychic Scorpios. It works with lower world journeying, helping to unlock the mysteries within ourselves. Opening past life chakras, it brings a shift on consciousness and helps with the Scorpio’s lesson of “letting go”.
Mystic Merlinite (Indago Gabbro)
Another mystical stone, Mystic Merlinite is useful for uncovering deep parts of the psyche, helping to understand the patterns in which we need to break. It helps remove old karmic contracts to shift us forward into a new level of consciousness.
