Main Purpose: Where you learn to lift your focus to its highest perspective and manifest your world from there. 


Scorpio is a water sign, which means that you go through life feeling your way. You sense whatever you need to know, about people, places, spaces, and the like, and you have the gift of being able to size things up in a split second. With your intuitive/supersensory talents, you can walk into a room filled with people, know instinctively whether you want to stay or not, and if you do, you are drawn as if by invisible energy lines to the person or persons who are most resonant with you. You’re uncanny that way.  

The 3D version of a Scorpio is known as one of three things (sometimes ALL of them, moving in and out of them like a shapeshifter). You can be a Scorpion, wielding a kind of power that can hurt others,  usually motivated by a subconscious need for control, or fear-based power. When you are not yet awake you will sting, if someone says or does something that causes you to recoil. With a little bit of conscious awareness, you can be an Eagle. You do have the great capacity to lift your vision high, soaring above the crowds, watching with that trained eye everything that’s going on in the world. You can zoom in with your focus, find your target, and swoop down to make contact. Whether your motives are kind or not is a matter of how much you Love your Self.  And finally, the most awake of the 3D Scorpio can be a Phoenix. Phoenix Scorpios experience many little deaths during the course of your lifetime. During these transformations, you move from one state to another, burning up the old form as you transition into something new. You’re a spectacle to behold, and your capacities are magical. For you, resurrection becomes a way of life, and your disposing planet, Pluto, begins to make itself known in ways you hadn’t considered before.  Pluto is the Gatekeeper to the new consciousness and the invisible realm that we all originate from. It seems important to note that Scorpio is the only sign that expresses its lower Self in three different ways, and that the number ‘three’ is the energy of manifestation.

In Cosmic Consciousness, Scorpio is the sign of Highest Vision, representing your capacity to manifest into the physical realm exactly what you are able to perceive. Physical Love speaks to our Love of the planet, and to everything you manifest into the physical world out of Love. There is also a certain degree of alchemy, that is, turning what is not love into Love. Scorpio is  where you learn to Love and respect your physicality, so that you can focus on the highest part of your Self and manifest the physical world from that perspective. It is the sign where the dark and light mingle. What is the difference between dark and light? There isn't any, unless you want to use value judgments. They are two sides of the same coin, which, in essence means that you can't have one without the other. They each derive their meaning from the other, and they are equally important to this world of duality, which can only exist in the physical realm.  

Right now you are experiencing the polarization of the duality you perpetuated. The way the world is now is the direct result of the way you thought about your Self for all of time. But it's not about blame or shame. Today you have awakened to the tools you need to recreate the world, or more appropriately to create a new world. 

Scorpio is called the sign of Physical Love because it is Love that manifests everything. This can be misinterpreted in the obvious way, and sometimes is, but it actually refers to your capacity to turn anything physical (beginning with your Self) into a better version of itself, through the act of Self-Love. Scorpio is the place within your consciousness where all transmutation takes place. There is alchemy here, and plenty of it. Things start out one way and BECOME something entirely different in this part of the energy field. The more heart-centered you can be, the greater the transformation, and the more Light-infused the manifestation is. Before you had access to the higher realms, you ALWAYS used this part of your energy field to manifest the "world." You just didn't realize what you were doing. You were filled with fear based thoughts, or at the very least, not-so-kind thoughts, lacking self-worthiness and such, and thus you created the world you’ve been living in for thousands of years. 

Scorpio has always been a sign of ‘vision,’ whether sensory or intuitive, and with an awakened consciousness the symbolism shifts from the Scorpion or the Eagle (or even the Phoenix) to the Alchemist. Here you come to  understand that you co-create with Source everything that you experience. Once it is understood that you are One with Source, you move from co-creator to Creator of your world. Until that awakening comes, however, it is imperative to turn yourself over to Source at all times, sacrificing your lower beliefs and desires, refining your capacity to focus on the higher Self with undiluted attention. You know how to shift your focus into your heart and consciously open it up, restoring you to the choice that yields the high road. The only way to ever change, or correct, or make right something that is made of fear is to put Love there instead. And to do it with great consciousness.

Your 5D consciousness is activated when you find those transformational powers within your Self. In the new system, Scorpio is known as the Alchemist. Those qualities you’ve expressed all your life (hopefully all three of them) eventually become your capacity to manifest something new and transformed out of lower energies. Alchemy is the capacity to turn lead into gold. You are, at the core of your being, a Creator of the highest order. 

The Scorpio quality of consciousness is very deep and alchemical. There are a lot of hidden nooks and crannies underneath the smooth exterior, and it can be cold and dark down in the deep of the emotional Self. The crater lake is one perfect example of the Scorpio hierarchy. (The signs are known as hierarchies in Cosmic Consciousness). Another great expression of Scorpio is the bubbling cauldron. Whichever one speaks to you most loudly, there is a trip to the depths of your core involved, and the journey can be somewhat uncomfortable, though certainly rewarding ultimately. 

Scorpio is the 10 o’clock hour on the cosmic clock, which corresponds to the 11th house of the birth chart. The 11th house can be thought of as the support structure in your life, and it is the place where we find our connection with humanity. Humanity is, taken collectively, the one creation of Source, and so it is here that we realize the Highest Manifestation, the capacity to create in the image of the Creator.  Manifestation is truly an alchemical process, whereby the lower attributes of your consciousness, those associated with the desires of the fear based self, are relinquished in a truly devoted surrender to the higher Self, where the highest good can be realized.
The one thing you need to learn is that it’s okay to be as powerful as you are. When you walk into a room the frequency of the entire space changes. You know this, consciously or not so consciously. When you do get a grip on the kind of transformational power you wield, lifting your focus to the highest observer’s perch you can access delivers you to the Truth of who you are. Aim high, ALTAR your thoughts, that is lift them higher, to find your empowered Self and make it all it can be. You are the Creator, creating out of your highest consciousness. Once you find the courage to come from the highest perch, there’s nothing you can’t manifest. 

Wherever Scorpio is in your chart you have the capacity to focus with great discipline to purify your desires and intentions,  lift your vision and ultimately become One with Source. It is from here that you can create for the highest good of all. Where Scorpio hosts your energy field, you’ll need your greatest strength and fortitude to bring about the focus necessary for alchemical purification to take place. If your Sun sign is Scorpio you have chosen this lifetime to undertake this alchemy of the soul, experiencing little deaths in order to cleanse your consciousness and fill yourself with Light. True transformation belongs to every Scorpio soul.
