Affirmation: "I soar above like an eagle."
What makes this water sign unique is its distinctive venomous sting. Like their celestial spirit animal, the scorpion, Scorpios lie in wait and strike when least expected. Life is a game of chess for these calculating water signs, who are constantly plotting several steps ahead in order to orchestrate an eventual checkmate.
Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet that governs both destruction and transformation. On a good day, Scorpion energy is ambitious and enticing. On a bad day, however, the shadowy side of Scorpio is fueled by a relentless desire for control. Power-hungry Scorpios must remember that if controlled by their egos, they are at risk of poisoning themselves. This sign is at its best when that intrinsic intensity is applied to deep, soulful connections with friends and lovers. When they build trust with others, Scorpios demonstrate unparalleled empathy, depth, and commitment that brighten even the darkest parts of Scorpio’s magical psyche.
The sensual Scorpio needs exotic notes of neroli, mandarin orange, and almond to seduce and bewitch. For the mysterious and instinctive Scorpio, an intense and oriental fragrance with top notes of mandarin orange, lavender, and bergamot will do.
We know Scorpios can be pretty stubborn and determined, so you need crystals that would balance out your passionate energy. You’re loyal and brave but can be secretive and jealous because of your competitive nature.
Amethyst - One of amethyst’s amazing properties is the balancing of the mind. This is beneficial for Scorpios to harness their spiritual awareness.
- Smoky Quartz brings Scorpios the cleansing power of smoke to remove negative energy. It helps them to stop bottling up their emotions, brings the truth into the light, and helps them release what is holding them back.
- Obsidian - As a grounding stone, Scorpios can use this black stone to either get rid of negative energy or even just excess energy.
Note: It is recommended to remove the large crystal before lighting the candle.
