The Scorpio Woman Fiercely passionate, this magnetic woman wants you to be in your power and that means you have to live with integrity. She cares more for complete honesty than what you earn or how popular you are. Her insight is piercing so you’d better be real and you’d better not flinch under her magnetic gaze. She understands the deep transformative power of love.
You cannot love her and remain unchanged. –
Scorpio, your teeth have pierced my soul. You pull me under and I don’t care if I drown. You have shown me your fearlessness and I have glimpsed the depth of you. You call to that which is real in me – I flinch, you do not. You gaze at me, burning. You sear at my soul, dissolve illusion. You draw me fiercely to truth. You force me to react without doing anything. I cannot remain unmoved after loving you.
You are more enduring than the Earth. You are the hidden fire, liquid beneath the stone; there is no resisting you. When you raise yourself to act all falls away. Your passions slay me. What name is there for pure power? Scorpion, Eagle, Phoenix.
You require truth from your lover. You want to love her, not the mask she presents to you. It may be pretty. You do not want that. You want the truest part of her. You cut away the beautiful lie. You are the force of transformation.
Your love moves the beloved to the depth of the Underworld to face herself. In those depths she finds herself, and also find truth and love. You free your beloveds from the misery of self imposed illusions.
Scorpio is loyal, faithful to the death, she protects those she loves – even from themselves.
