Well we just left Scorpio, but Scorpion’s haven’t left me. They’re everywhere. lol Starting with me, my sister (who I share a house with,) my boss, and my boyfriend. Yeah, that’s a lot of Scorpio….not to mention all of you whom are. So, I do not remember many dreams for awhile now, perhaps because I like to take something to sleep? I don’t know. At work we are talking about bugs and being scared by them, and a gal said I am terrified of scorpions, and I had a flash, a memory of a dream. In the dream I was under a tree, and like “Little Miss Muffet” who sat on her tuffet, a scorpion dropped down in front of me and I flicked it away. That’s it, so therefore the symbolic meaning of scorpions.

I love her website, so check it out for more symbols, totems. . .


Symbolic meaning of Scorpion

A potent message the Scorpion chooses to express is that of protection and/or isolation. In fact, they themselves are quite solitary – part of the reason why they symbolize In fact, many people with the Scorpion as their totem tend to have brief spells of passion with a partner only to end the relationship and spend long period’s content to be alone.

The Scorpion will mate in an exotic, dance of passion and control. The Scorpion sex dance is one of beauty, control, and calculation.

The female allows her new offspring to ride on her back until they shed their first exoskeleton – then her offspring leaves her – all of them going off to their lone, solitary lives – another example of intensity in relationship followed by isolation.

Defensiveness/control/protection is evident in the Scorpion’s appearance – which seems to say “Do not trifle with me.” One look at this magnificent creature says “back off!” does it not?

As another symbol of protection – we can consider the venomous tip of the scorpion which numbs its prey as well as makes its prey chemically digestible for the Scorpion. Whether the Scorpion intends to eat the victim of its sting is irrelevant because its sting will most certainly protect the Scorpion in order for it to live another day.

In Samaria, the Scorpion is associated with the Sun, and ancient writings depict Scorpion-men guarding (protecting) sacred gateways leading to ascension, pleasure and enlightenment.

Death symbolism comes into play in Greco-Roman mythology where Artemis (Diana) used the Scorpion to sting Orion’s foot, which caused his death. Afterwards, Zeus (Jupiter) made the Scorpion a zodiac sign among the stars.

There are some species where the venom is actually the antidote for its sting (like cobras). In Egypt and Tibet this is seen as an omen, and the Scorpion is made into an amulet – signifying protection and warding off evil. In Africa, the Scorpion is also seen as a healing sign – its venomous oil used for medicinal purposes.

When we consider the message this incredible creature has for us, we must first consider its outstanding features, which are the Scorpion’s natural protective/defensive mechanisms. For example, consider the Scorpion’s hard exoskeleton as a line of defense. Also consider its sharp potentially damaging pinchers – not to mention its venomous stinger.

The symbol meaning of Scorpion, much like its appearance, can be little foreboding. That is, if we do not have the inner eyes to see the beauty and complexity of its symbolism.

Although the symbol meaning for Scorpion can appear a little harsh at first glance, when we really contemplate the Scorpion in all its wonder – then compare these meanings against the events in our own lives, we will inevitably find a common ground and learn some timely lessons from the Scorpion too.

Below are a few facts on the symbol meaning for Scorpion along with some cultural history and background.

Therefore, as a symbol meaning, the Scorpion represents protection. When the Scorpion makes an appearance in our lives, it is beckoning us to consider the following:

Symbolic Messages from the Scorpion

What needs protecting in my life?

Am I being overprotective?

Am I being defensive? Why?

Am I afraid of being vulnerable?

How do I feel about control in my life? (too much, too little)

Dalai Lama: Stop praying for Paris — humans created this problem and humans must solve it

Raw Story

Bethania Palma Markus

17 NOV 2015

The Dalai Lama offered unusually sage advice for dealing with the terrorist attack on Paris on Friday.


“Don’t pray for Paris — work for peace,” he told Deutsche Welle, a German broadcasting company.


“We cannot solve this problem only through prayers,” the spiritual leader said. “I am a Buddhist and I believe in praying. But humans have created this problem, and now we are asking God to solve it. It is illogical. God would say, solve it yourself because you created it in the first place.”

He added his hopes that the record violence of the 20th Century doesn’t continue to bleed into the current one.

“We need a systematic approach to foster humanistic values, of oneness and harmony,” he said. “If we start doing it now, there is hope that this century will be different from the previous one. It is in everybody’s interest. So let us work for peace within our families and society, and not expect help from God, Buddha or the governments.”

In what the Friendly Atheist described as sounding like Humanism, the Dalai Lama also said that much of the violence is over superficial matters.

“Furthermore, the problems that we are facing today are the result of superficial differences over religious faiths and nationalities,” he told DW. “We are one people.”

He also said he was leaving it up to the people of Tibet whether they wanted to continue having Dalai Lamas serve as leaders in the future.

“If the people think that this institution is no longer relevant, it should be abolished. I am no more involved in political matters,” he said. “I am only concerned about Tibet’s well-being.”

11:11 We Are One


Happy, joyous 11:11 everyone. So nice to start the day waking at my leisure, and having the day to just be. (Even though I have to study for an Algebra exam.) My goddess, dimensional alchemist friend Jeanette St. Germain shared this great article on FB. Low and behold it is a WP blog, so happy to come across, Creative Numerology By Christine DeLorey. She writes with a creative, intuitive wisdom. I hope that you will all go and visit Christine, and we can add her to our circle of friends. Set intentions on this Scorpio New Moon. I love you all. Wish me luck on test tomorrow morning.


1:11 has been constantly ‘appearing’ to people, all over the world, since the 1990’s and the onset of the new millennium – and there is great meaning to this symbol. Our senses are opening to the central role that numbers play in our lives, and the further we move into the 2000s, the more our attention is drawn to the power of numeric energy. This, after all, is the ‘digital age’. And yet, despite all our number-based technology, we are only just beginning to understand the deeper meaning of “1 plus 1 equals 2”.

The 11th month of the year always increases our potential for personal and collective growth. 11 not only helps us to evolve, but actually symbolizes the step-by-step nature of evolution. (1+1=2 = moving forward).

11 occurs everywhere, all the time, but it is in the 11th month of any year that it becomes highly concentrated, especially on November 11th and 29th.

As the decade of the 10s unfolds and we move closer to 2020, the deeper meaning of 11 becomes increasingly complex – and yet increasingly clear. Making things clear is one of 11’s major functions. 11 illuminates. 11 has brought forward an era of transparency which is expanding our awareness. “We once were blind and now we see!”


As we continue our transition from the male-driven 1000s, 11 reminds us that we cannot reach 2 without two 1s. This basic arithmetic represents our current position in the human journey. We are evolving from the top-heavy imbalance of the 1000s into the fairness, justice, equality, and balance of the 2000s. (1+1=2).

Masculine intellect (electricity), and feminine emotion (magnetism) are learning tocombine their distinctively different vibrations and generate a power far greater than either can produce alone. 2 is the number of unity, partnership, sensitivity, patience, caring, cooperation, and WILLINGNESS. Our feminine energy is the WILL of humanity, which the dying ‘class system’ of the 1000s is doing everything it can to overpower. But in 2015, an 8 year (the number of power), we can see that the purpose of power is not to overpower, but to EMPOWER. Without this understanding, authentic peace – which actually LASTS – is impossible to maintain.

As electro-magnetic beings, each of us consists of both masculine and feminine energy. This sexual vibration is what keeps life going, through the process of reproduction and regeneration. 11:11 signifies “generation after generation”. 

2 is the number of CONNECTION, and when masculine and feminine willingly connect and work together in equality, all forms of prejudice and imbalance are pushed to the outer edges – the extremes – where their ability to obstruct the evolutionary process is limited. Our current lack of connection is enabling the extremes to penetrate the mainstream with a flood of deep-rooted hatred.

This is reflected in a world-wide surge of racism, rape, cruelty, and ‘trafficking’ (slavery). It is reflected in all the wars, the global power-grab, the displacement of millions of people, and the vicious attacks on wild life. The ‘old school’ is digging in its heals and standing its ground against the rising waves of fairness, equality, and peaceful coexistence being generated from an evolving population.

Einstein’s observation that “insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result”, certainly reflects the great karmic wheel on which history repeats and repeats until its lessons are learned. And the more we resist this learning, the more insane the world becomes.

When we look at reality from different angles, we see a fuller story. And when we look at 11 from a different angle, we see the “equals sign”. And what a potent sign it is.

While women’s rights remain in the hands of men, the world will remain dangerously out of balance. The same is true of any group of people whose rights are determined by those who consider themselves to be ‘superior’. THAT is insanity.

Emotional energy does not harm the masculine intellect in any way. On the contrary, the vibrations of our feminine feelings open the masculine mind – and increases awareness. The merging of mind and emotion is the expansion of consciousness.

Do not be afraid to be afraid. The key is to understand the purpose of fear in the great emotional range so that we can know what needs to be feared and what does not – and when others are manipulating our fears for their own ends.

In the early days of the 2000s, after the 9/11 attacks, it was the fear of completely losing our free will, (under the guise of ‘security’), that eventually woke us up and brought us to our senses. Fear is not the enemy, but a vital and natural component of the human WILL, the purpose of which is to keep us safe. However, fear is not meant to be a way of life, as it is in the current system. It is simply part of our inner ‘radar’ with which we must learn to cooperate when needed.

Never forget that Mother Earth is our principle life-support system – the greatest source of feminine energy there is. The giver of life. To control feminine energy – creativity – is destruction itself.

Now, almost 17 years into the 2000s, as reality continues to flow through the cracks of this crumbling patriarchal system, which is actually slavery, the Will of the people is rising to free itself. The safety net needs to be strengthened and expanded, not reduced or removed. It is the purpose of government to create and uphold the balance – the fairness – the justice – that enables ALL energy to flow freely without one component overpowering another. 11:11 signifies the free movement of diversity in all directions.

The feminine wants to love and be loved. So does the masculine. And that’s the connection we need to make. LOVE. We must learn to love and accept ourselves first. 1 is the number of SELF. 2 is the number of ACCEPTANCE. And SELF ACCEPTANCE is one of 11’s most important factors. Without that, the inner and outer wars are destined to rage on forever.

It is no coincidence that 11/11 is Veterans Day in the USA and Remembrance Day in other countries. In World War 1 alone, it is estimated that 9 MILLION military personnel were killed. This does not include civilian deaths. World War 1 was declared to be ‘over’ on November 11, 1918, at 11 a.m. But it wasn’t over.

There is no such thing as ‘winning’ a war. The agony of war is so immense and multi-generational, that it never really ‘ends’. War is non-ending suffering – generation after generation. War in the outer world can only end when human beings find a way to heal the ‘war of the sexes’ going on inside.

As within, so without!

Dead Can Dance

:D Happy Day of the Dead :D

Day of the Dead

The Day of the Dead is a unique festival that is the result of 16th century contact between Mesoamerica and Europe. Conceptually, it is a hybrid, owing its origins to both prehispanic Aztec philosophy and religion and medieval European ritual practice. Ceremonies held during the Aztec summer month of Miccailhuitontli were mainly focused on the celebration of the dead. These were held under the supernatural direction of the goddess Mictecacihuatl. (1) Both children and dead ancestors were remembered and celebrated. It was also during this month that the Aztecs commemorated fallen warriors. According to Diego Duran, a 16th century Spanish priest, the Aztecs would bring offerings of food to altars in honor of the dead. They would also place small clay images that were supposed to represent the deceased on these same altars. (2)

When the Spaniards arrived in the 16th century, they brought the Christian Holiday of All Soul’s Day with them. This was a Roman Catholic holy day commemorating the dead in general as well as baptized Christians who were believed to be in purgatory. Spanish priests were quick to see a correlation between the Aztec and Christian celebrations so moved the Aztec festival from summer to fall so that it coincided with All Soulsâ day. This was done in the hopes that the Aztec holiday, which the Spaniards considered to be pagan, would be transformed into an acceptable Christian holiday.

The result of this cultural blending is an event where modern Mexicanos celebrate their ancestors during the first two days of November, rather than at the beginning of summer. While this modern festival has Christian components, it still maintains its indigenous Native American ones.

Across Mexico, activities associated with Day of the Dead are fairly consistent from place to place. On the first day, families visit the graves of their relatives. During this time, they decorate the gravesite with flowers, earth, and candles. The also hold a kind of picnic at the graveside where they interact socially among themselves and with other families and community members who are all gathered at the cemetery. The stories that are exchanged by the families often feature other people who are also buried in the same cemetery. In this way, Day of the Dead acts as a method of social cohesion between different groups of people. Folks gathered around the graves are there not only to celebrate their ancestors, but to celebrate the role that those ancestors played in a larger community.

The meals prepared for these picnics include tamales and pan de muerto (a special bread in the shape of a person). Many people believe that it is good luck to be the one who bites into the plastic toy skeleton hidden by the baker in each rounded loaf. Sweets are also included in the feast. These include, cookies, chocolate and sugar skulls. Friends and family members exchange gifts consisting of sugar skeletons or other items with a death related iconography. Often times, a gift is more prized if the skull or skeleton has one’s own name written on it with icing. As in the case of pan de muerto, when the celebrant takes a bite out of the skull, the person symbolically “takes a bite of death” and thereby, inoculates themselves against the fear of death.

Decoration is not restricted to gravesites. Often times people set up home altars dedicated to the same relatives. These are profusely decorated with flowers (primarily yellow and orange marigolds and/or crysanthemums). These were called cempoa-xochitl and are a clear holdover from Pre-Columbian times. For the Aztecs, the color yellow referenced the autumn—a season when nature begins to die. The arc or arco that forms a semi-halo atop the altar is symbolic of the path taken across the heavens by the dead. As in the case of the gravesides, home altars are also adorned with religious amulets and food offerings. The foods chosen are generally those that the deceased enjoyed during his life. This can run the gamut to different kinds of fruit, to cigarettes, and alcoholic beverages. Mescal is a favorite. All in all, the altar represents a recognition of the cycle of life and death that is part of human existence. There is some slight variation in how Day of the Dead is observed in Mexico. For instance, its celebration in large cities, like Oaxaca, leans more toward the secular than the sacred. Also, foodstuffs and altar construction are, logically enough, dependant upon the natural resources of the area. Nonetheless, what seems to be maintained throughout is the remembrance of the dead and the celebration of the continuity of life and the community.

(1) This deity’s name means “Lady of the Dead.” She was the female counterpart of Mictlantecuhtli, the lord of the underworld.

I have been to the  San Francisco’s Day of the Dead with my baby sister.


Pristine Cartera-Turkus

She’sa My Birthday too!


She’sa My bithday too!

Happy birthday! Today the Sun returns to the position it was in when you were born.

As would seem appropriate with this transit, today is a day of new beginnings, and the influences you feel today will affect the entire year to come. However, this does not mean that the whole year will be disappointing if today doesn’t work out exactly as planned. You are receiving a new impulse from the energy center within you, as symbolized by the Sun. Therefore any new venture that you start at this time will ride the crest of this new energy and will very likely come to an acceptable conclusion. Whatever you do or begin today will bear the stamp of your individuality more than anything else. This is the day to assert yourself anew.

The interpretation above is for your transit selected for today:

Sun conjunction Sun, , exact at 15:46

Activity period from 29 October 2015 until 31 October 2015

I love this gift of a Birthday Invocation, by Anrita Melchizedek.
