Sun Signs Part III

So it took for me just about 2 months to get back to Sun Signs Saga...
I've been so busy lately, that I wonder if I can actually manage astrological workshops at all..
But, for all of you who really want to know, here it goes:
SCORPIO: My son's sun sign is Scorpio, so it is my favorite sign. Although I am yet to see typical Scorpionic traits: quiet, subtle manipulation with the sole desire to be in control of a situation or a person, coolness under pressure, and, of course, secretiveness.
My son so far is neither, or, dare I say, he is opposite of his Scorpionic nature.
But he is young. I'm sure, he'd grow into it. After all, I've seen plenty of Scorpios, and they are easy to pick in a crowd: they all appear very self-possessed, never giving a clue of what they are up to.
My son is easy to read. He is kind, generous (so un-Scorpio), enthusiastic little fellow with not a grain of self-possession. In fact, I often see other kids easily manipulating him (which worries me).
The only Scorpionic trait my son displays so far is jealousy.
But I have no doubt that astrology would prove me right once again, and he will become a full-fledged Scorpio with time. After all, this energy influences his self-identity (that what sun signs are all about).
This energy is water (sensitive, responsive, receptive), with fixed mode (not going anywhere), under the rulership of Pluto.
Before Pluto was discovered, ancient astrologers thought that Mars is the ruler. But they were quick to add that Scorpio Mars is different from Aries Mars, because the energy of Scorpio Mars is negative in nature. Now we know that this "negative Scorpio Mars" is actually a totally different planet.
But wait, was not Pluto demoted from planetary status lately?
Not as far as astrology is concerned!
Anyone who lived through Plutonian transit and survived it, would never speak lightly of it. This tiny planet pulls the mightiest punch of them all! Its energy is compulsive and obssessive, and it is inward oriented, causing us to obsessively dig our own dirt again and again. Pluto fleshes out our archetypal idea of Divine Omnipotence, so it creates greatest challenges in our lives in order for us to find the power within to overcome them.
For Scorpios, it is especially true. These sensitive people hold everything that affects them inside. This energy field is akin to a swamp. All that gets in, cannot escape (fixed, receptive energy). Plutonian energy causes the natives dig deeper and deeper with obsessive determination, re-opening every wound (water people are so easily wounded because of their sensitivity), until they find the power within to transform that very wound into a healing potion.
That's why another totem of Scorpio is Phoenix - the bird that rises from the ashes.
There is certainly an obsession with pain, tinting the sign with S&M tendencies, even if on psychological level only. But that is because all Scorpios are born knowing the secret that greatest pearls are products of oysters' greatest pain.
SAGITTARIUS is a completely different energy. It is a fusion of fire (impact-oriented, high-vibration energy) and Jupiterian expansive and highly intuitive nature. Jupiter fleshes our archetype of Divine Omniscience. Intuition, by the way,is nothing but instant knowledge. Since all fire energy is intuitive, and so is Jupiter, Sagittarius is doubly intuitive sign. So all natives are born hungry for new experiences and with uncanny ability to be in the right place at the right time.
Expansive Jupiter causes them search for new horizons (and greener pastures), which means taking risks and breaking cocoons of familiar boundaries - so all Sags out there like to test their luck quite often.
But Jupiter's is the benevolent energy, so they test their luck, not yours. These kind, generous people (they don't believe in lack, so they can afford to be generous) believe in "live and let live". They invented democracy.
Just don't try to hold them in. They tend to be claustrophobic. They cannot stand any restraints, including seat-belts, and like to keep their windows open and doors unlocked.
But don't worry, they always come back. Sagittarius' mode is mutable (2 poles), so once they are done exploring other galaxies (one pole), they like to go home (the other pole).
CAPRICORN is polar opposite of Sagittarius. Even the symbol of Saturn, the planet that rules Capricorn, looks like the symbol of Jupiter, dropped upside down. Because Saturn is all about boundaries. Its energy is contracting, creating boundaries everywhere it goes. It influences Capricorn's base energy, which is earth - the lowest vibrations possible. Together, they create energy field which is very "down to earth", with "down" being the key word here.
Our first and foremost boundary is fear. When we are afraid we cannot do something, we limit our possibilities. When we are afraid of the chaos of life, we limit it by creating rules life must follow, further limiting its possibilities.
Capricorn's mode is cardinal (outgoing), so Capricorn natives like to impose their rules and fears on others, so we all be down to earth just like them.
They worship structure. Since authority is the concept requiring structure, they like authority, especially when they are it (is it because enforcing rules is better than following them?:-)).
Don't blame them. Many of them are used to it, being the eldest siblings. That's how they get to be the Responsible Ones. Others are born to parents who are older than those of their peers or to parents in authority positions, so they naturally imitate their elders.
I say, thank God they are there - someone has to be responsible for the rest of us...
