Scorpio season is upon us (how are we all faring? Nothing too terrifying, hopefully), and this sign and season are well known for invoking the deep darkness within us all . . . it is a moment for clarity, to explore your shadows, and hopefully by the end of it all – come out transformed.
Scorpio is ruled by the Eight House (House of secrets, the occult, sex, birth, and of course, DEATH) and the planet PLUTO (the appointed ruler of the underworld in Greek mythology)…so the concept of vampirism + SCORPIO make total sense.
The seductive charm of the Vampire puts the victim into a kind of trance, not expecting the deadly bite that comes later. . . if you are dealing with a particularly dark Scorpio, you might just be in for a touch of psychic vampirism according to Dion Fortune, author of Psychic Self-Defense.
Scorpios do have a natural inclination towards dark pyschic voyages using their unique gifts for their own selfish gain(s). As she puts it:
“Now vampirism is contagious; the person who is vampirized, being depleted of vitality, is a psychic vacuum, himself absorbing from anyone he comes across in order to refill his depleted resources of vitality. . . We all know that, when caught off our guard, there comes a dark temptation from the depths of our lower selves, something atavistic stirs, and we think thoughts, or even do deeds, of which we would never have believed ourselves capable. We have heard the voice of the Dark Angel speaking. ”
Dion Fortune, Author of PSYCHIC SELF-DEFENCE
Food for thought.
As much as Scorpio is known for its dark side – with the dark, must come the light, and the emphasis on healing and regeneration must be highlighted during this time!
Jimi didn’t even know the thoughts he would conjure when he posed for that iconic shot of him dressed as a VAMPIRE! How perfect…if anyone knows who, what, when, or why that photo was captured please let us know in the COMMENTS.
Because, like so many things on here . . . it is a mystery!
Jimi Hendrix was not a SCORPIO, however. . .
He was a SAGITARIUS.
Until next time,
