Day 17: Writing Challenge– Post about your zodiac sign. Whether or not it fits you.
Zodiac Signs. Fun!
When I was younger, I believed in the zodiac. I had tarot cards. It was fun to believe in something other than my faith.
I needed to know what would happen. I was a love struck teenager!
Now I’m older and think they can be fun. They aren’t meant to live your life by.
However, imagine if a person did! What an adventure.
I am a Scorpio
Scorpios concern themselves with beginnings and endings, and are unafraid of either; they also travel in a world that is black and white and has little use for gray.
I like beginnings and endings. They are beautiful. I find them fascinating. I paint my world with gray. Nothing is ever black and white.
The curiosity of Scorpios is immeasurable, which may be why they are such adept investigators. These folks love to probe and know how to get to the bottom of things. The fact that they have a keen sense of intuition certainly helps.
I am curious. I like learning new things. When I don’t know something, I do investigate. My investigative skills have helped me a time or two, and my intuition provides hunches.
The Scorpion symbolizes Scorpio, and that is no accident. Much like the Scorpion would rather kill itself than be killed, those born under this sign are in ultimate control of their destiny. It is life on the Scorpion’s terms, too, since these folks promote their agenda (they are quite the executives) and see to it that things go forward
No, sadly I have no control over my destiny. That is all up to God. He leads my steps. Do I believe in destiny. Yes. Promoting my own agenda? Eh. When I am passionate about something. Maybe.
Others may find this overbearing (it can be) and even self-destructive, but that’s the beauty of the Scorpio: they have tremendous regenerative powers, much like the literal Scorpion can lose its tail and promptly grow a new one. Fearless Scorpios rarely lose; they just keep on going, since they are stubborn and determined to succeed (this Scorpio trait is in keeping with the Fixed Quality assigned to this sign).
Yes, I am very stubborn, and determined. Rarely lose? Well, who is keeping track of that!!?? I can be competitive, but I am the first to admit when I suck at something. Do I keep going? Yes.
Scorpios work as hard as they do so they can someday sit back and feel satisfied with themselves. These folks are intense, passionate and filled with desire. They’re also complex and secretive, so don’t expect to get much out of them, lest they become suspicious and exit stage left. It’s best not to bet against Scorpios, either, since these folks are surprisingly resourceful.
Yes, I consider myself a hard-worker. I like to have my work done so I can sit back and relax. Do what I like doing. Writing or playing with the kids. That is the stuff I rather be doing than work. I can be pretty intense and passionate.. filled with desire. I have been told I am complex. Maybe a little secretive. Proven to be resourceful.
Scorpio is ruled by Mars and Pluto. Mars was the God of War in ancient Roman mythology and is the first (and most ancient) ruler of Scorpio. When Pluto was discovered in the 20th century, it was also assigned to this sign. Pluto was known as the God of the Underworld in ancient Roman times, so when coupled with Mars, expect some intense energy to head toward Scorpions here on Earth. This planetary combo makes for people who are motivated, penetrating and aware. Scorpions don’t miss much, since they are highly attuned to the vibrations of others. They are intuitive, probing and very focused on knowing who’s who and what’s what. Scorpios can lose their temper (and even become vengeful) when someone gets in their way, so it’s best to give them plenty of room. Remember, they’re unafraid, and a loss today simply means an opportunity for victory tomorrow.
I don’t say much. I like to observe. Analyze. Picking up on those verbal and non-verbal cues. I don’t lose my temper easily. That is one thing I am proud of. It takes a lot to make me upset. It has to build up over a period of time before I blow up. If that happens, then look out because hello She-Hulk!
The Element associated with Scorpio is Water. As opposed to the ‘roiling seas’ seen in other Water Signs, a better motto for Scorpios would be ‘still waters run deep.’ Those born under this sign are as emotional as their waterborne brethren, it’s just that they’re not as likely to show it. The Scorpio’s emotions are repressed, kept under cover. Again, these are secrets to be used another day.
I can be emotional. Once a month. Give me chocolate. Back away. I can be emotional other times, but with reasons. If the kids do something nice. Or if I realize how fast they are growing. It can make me weapy. Again, not really secretive. Rather get it out in the open, and talk about it.
these folks are clever, perceptive and always in the mix. Their ability to see into things can sometimes be a curse for Scorpios, however, since they can take an insignificant matter and turn it into a huge slight. Beware the Scorpio who feels crossed! These folks can turn vindictive in no time flat. Luckily, once Scorpios catch their breath, they will return to their usual determined and loyal (albeit strong-willed) ways.
Perceptive, yes. I am not cursed. Always in the mix. Maybe. In my family, I have a habit of getting involved in fights that aren’t my own. Sticking up for family and putting myself there beside them when they wouldn’t do that for me. After it is all said and done, it’s all for naught. If it is for my brothers– they end up back with the girl they were against. They want my help because I am the smart one, but when it’s over I’m the forgotten one. Vindictive? Nah. I don’t want revenge. I don’t hate anyone.
Finally, while Scorpios aren’t above some subtle manipulation to get what they want, they’d much rather take a scientific, even mystical path. The Scorpio-born are powerful and passionate, qualities that serve them well, as long as they don’t let them deteriorate into self-indulgence or compulsion.
I am not keen on manipulation. Though I dare say it works with my husband to get what I want sometimes!
Scorpios love competition in both work and play, which is why they’ll air it out in sports and games. Extreme sports are right up Scorpio’s alley, as is most anything that will test their mettle. They’ve got to have an adversary, since it makes the game that much more fun.
I don’t like extreme sports. I do love boxing. Dancing. Walking. Slower placed sports that don’t involve heights, a high level of speed, and that amount of risk.
Scorpio’s colors? Powerful red and serious black. Love black! It’s my color! Hate red.
When it comes to love, though, Scorpios soften up a bit and are caring and devoted with their lovers, even if they do hold on a bit tight. Scorpios are also lusty in the extreme (how else?), so they need to be mindful of their reproductive organs.
The great strength of the Scorpio-born is in their determination, passion and motivation. Scorpios don’t know the word quit, which is why they usually get the job done. A powerhouse? Like no other.
Usually motivated. Determined. Passionate.
To sum it up– parts of my zodiac fit while others do not. All of the sites said some of the same general things I have here, and some different.
I do not think we were meant to fit our zodiac signs perfectly. If we did, we would all be alike. God never wanted us to be alike.
What fun would that be?
We were all born to be different. To make a difference in the world somehow.
We all make a difference in some way. Whether we realize it or not. We leave our footprints.
