Personality Traits of Scorpio

This is a long-awaited astrology week for me. Why? Because Scorpio is actually my own Zodiac sign. Though I know a fair bit about my own sign, there is always more to learn – and plenty to share. So today on Cosmic Positivity, we are taking a closer look at all things Scorpio. Here are a few of the most common traits!

Positive Characteristics. There are many positive qualities that make up the Scorpio personality. For instance, they are extremely focused and are rarely deterred from their mission once they set their sights on something. They are also passionate and caring. People under this sign also tend to be quite intuitive. Not only do they tend to make the right decisions at the right time but they also have a tendency to read the emotions of the people around them. 

Negative Characteristics. Just like there are an awful lot of good traits related to this sign there are also some…. not-so-ideal traits to consider as well. They can be jealous and possessive, distrustful, secretive, and resentful. If you hurt a Scorpio, watch out! They will likely hold onto that anger and hurt for a very long time. A little advice? If you fall under this sign, do your best to balance out those strong emotions with healing meditations and crystals.

Facts About Scorpio:
-         Colours commonly associated with this sign are red, rust, and scarlet.
-         Lucky numbers include: 8, 11, 18, and 22.
-         This sign is most compatible with Taurus and Cancer.
-         Dislikes are dishonesty and revealing secrets.
-        Their likes are the truth, being right, and long-term friendships.

This passionate but stubborn water sign is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Are you a Scorpio? Do you know someone who is?

Love A Scorpio!

It really is not a surprise that Scorpios are the most passionate and sexual of the zodiac sign. They are known as the ruler of the genitals.  It may not always be easy to love them, since their emotions run very deep, but when they are in a relationship they 100% committed as long as they are satisfied in the bedroom.

If you are looking to seduce a Scorpio male, make sure to turn the sex appeal up and be as seductive as you can. Put on those high heels, garters and provocative clothing! As much as you want to turn up the sex appeal, make sure you are not easy. Make him work for it! Be strong and not always accessible. It will make him want you even more.

Looking to seduce a Scorpio female?  First realize she has a seductive nature and she will grow tired of a man she finds weak and not worthy of her. A man that is worthy of her must be strong, determined and a freak in the bedroom. Make sure to court her and show her that you are worthy.

So who is compatible with Scorpios? Let's find out!

Scorpio and Aries
These two will have an unbreakable bond in the bedroom. That may be the only place they have this bond. They are both willing to try out new things and even attempt some taboos. Outside the bedroom these two will have a tough time communicating. Aries prefers things to be straight forward, while Scorpios can be manipulative at times.

Scorpio and Taurus
There is a lot of baggage for these two, but that can help them in this relationship. They can connect on a deep level. When they click it is almost impossible for them to be separated. They are completely different, but if they are confident enough they will be able to to communicate and things will be exciting for these two.

Scorpio and Gemini
This is a pairing that doesn't normally work out well.  Geminis are known for being flighty and Scorpios are usually too mysterious. In order for this union to work, both sides need to know how to communicate.

Scorpio and Cancer
While this couple has the power to go the distance, these two need to learn how to trust each other. Both of these signs are extremely emotional, but once trust is made these two will be able to achieve anything.

Scorpio and Leo
This union won't go far. Both are equally stubborn and unwilling to bend for the other. This coupling can  be disastrous though, because neither one will want to leave the relationship. So they will just continue to hurt each other. This relationship is intense and challenging, making it a lot more work to sustain the relationship.

Scorpio and Virgo
These two struggle with trust issues, but in the same breathe they can easily talk about it. Unfortunately they are complete opposites in the bedroom though and this can form some issues. Where Scorpio is a bit more freeing when it comes to experimenting, Virgos are much more reserved.

Scorpio and Libra
This couple will be a very intense couple. They are both passionate and animalistic in the bedroom. There will be some major trust issues between the two. Scorpios find it very difficult to trust Libras, since they have a tendency to show off to the rest of the world. When it comes to their emotions, Libras prefer an active, fiery partner, where Scorpios prefer a more sensual partner.

Scorpio and Scorpio
You really can not go wrong with this power couple. Scorpios are known for their passion and dominance. In this pairing though, the Scorpio woman will be the one who is more willing to be submissive than the male.  They will be willing to talk about their emotions and will be tender towards each other.

Scorpio and Sagittarius
These two work great in the beginning of the relationship, but soon Scorpios begin to think that their partner is unreliable and they don't deserve to be trusted. On the flip side Sagittarius will soon think that their Scorpio partner is too controlling and pushy.  Sagittarius prefers to be free, and Scorpios think they need to lock that relationship down. Not a good combination.

Scorpio and Capricorn
These two signs really compliment each other in the bedroom. They really like to focus on intimacy and sensuality. Scorpios also find it quite easy to trust the Capricorns. This is because Capricorns find it necessary to keep this relationship as direct and honest as possible.  These two understand each other;s need for silence and will patiently wait for the other to open up.

Scorpio and Aquarius
Sometimes this relationship can be quite intense, but that may not be a good thing. They have a hard time finding a balance between passion, emotions and rational thinking. Aquarius would prefer to be free of any emotional ties, and that doesn't sit well with Scorpio.

Scorpio and Pisces
When it comes to these two, they prefer to focus on emotions and are determined to make it an important part of their relationships. They both want to trust each other, but if one of them cheats the relationship will be over immediately. Communication will be difficult, and there will be a lot of room for misunderstandings.

Best Crystals for Scorpio

There are many ways to incorporate crystals into your daily life. The stones you choose may vary based on your intuition, personal preferences, or specific needs. They may also relate to your astrological sign. Certain crystals are best suited to specific Zodiac signs – to bring harmony and balance to each unique characteristic. Some of the most commonly associated with Scorpio include…

Aquamarine. The first crystal on this list is a traditionally associated with this sign. It is known to be calming and is very helpful when dealing with communication issues (or blockages in the throat chakra). Its blue, green, or aqua color is closely related to water, which is idea as Scorpio is a water sign. This crystal is also good for relaxation and provides users with a sense of calm. Since people born under this sign tend to be extremely passionate and can get worked up easily, a little bit of calm can go a long way!

Hematite. Another option for this sign is hematite. This is another stone that can bring a sense of calm and peace to the stubborn Scorpio. It is also especially useful at creating a joyful mood and getting rid of any depressing or gloomy emotions that might be lingering around. Hematite can also be useful for this Zodiac sign as it reduces judgements in others and boots feelings of kindness.

Rose Quartz. What is it about this crystal? It seems to be useful for just about everything you could possibly imagine! It is a definite must-have for Scorpios, however, because it opens the heart to all kinds of love. It also works well for keeping a positive attitude (which can be difficult at times for this sign) and enhances self-confidence. The colour of rose quartz is also very soothing, which again, is ideal for this sign. Carry it with you to let go of anger or resentment – and bring a little love into your life.

If you are a Scorpio then try making use of some of the crystals on this list. Get inspired, feel their energy, and embrace the power of your astrological sign this season.

Do you use any of these crystals?

Scorpios and Their Element

Oh you beautiful Scorpios!  You're such an awesome zodiac sign! Did you know that your element is water? It actually says a lot about you. Scorpios are very emotional and very private. Even though you have a lot of emotions, your emotions tend to run very deep and you don't let people know about them unless you want them to. I guess there is some true behind the saying "Still waters run deep". You are a very private person who reveals very little about themselves to others. Anyone who gets to know you is very surprised at everything they are priviledged to see.

You will realize that your element is balanced when you are feeling calm and peaceful. Nothing is bothering, and your emotions are not extreme at the moment. Take advantage of this time and meditate! Your mind will be at peace and should not wonder.

If you are not balanced, you probably feel very apprehensive and detached from people and maybe even a little self indulgent. Take some time out for yourself, before you attempt to communicate with anyone else. Trust me it will help! You will be more likely to get into an argument that way.

Scorpios you are also a Fixed sign. That means you are very stubborn and can even go into an emotional rut from time to time. Instead of being resistant to change, try opening yourself up for new experiences. You may want things to stay the same forever, but by sticking to a strict routine means you can miss out on some great life experiences.

Happy Birthday Scorpios!

How to Share a Spiritual Journey

Family is the most important part of my life. I am extremely fortunate to be close with my immediate family – though much of my extended family has been cut out for one reason or another. It just goes to show! When it comes to family, everyone has baggage.

For instance, while I am very close with my immediate family, they do not know about my spiritual beliefs. They have expressed in the past a disbelief in crystals, oracle cards, and anything that falls under the category of new age. But that doesn’t mean I can’t share my journey with them. It just changes the way I go about it! If you are looking to include your family members in your own spiritual path, here are a few foolproof suggestions.

Give Them a Piece of Crystal Jewellery. There are always special occasions to celebrate with family. From holidays to promotions, graduations, and marriages…. a significant event is a wonderful reason to give a family member a meaningful gift. A few examples include: a piece of jewellery with a meaningful stone (like amethyst or quartz) or something with their birthstone. Personal, meaningful, and stylish. Your loved ones will be thrilled with your thoughtful token of affection. 

Go For a Nature Walk. While you may want to do a reiki session with or on a family member, it isn’t always realistic. It depends entirely on what each family member believes and is open to. Not a problem! A good alternative is to go for a nature walk together. You can carry some grounding stones with you connect with the earth while you enjoy spending some relaxing time with someone you love.

Share Positivity Whenever Possible. While your family may not understand or agree with your spiritual beliefs, they can certainly get on board with positive thinking. Speak to each other about all of the wonderful things in your life (rather than complain about work and all into the trap of negativity), recite affirmations, and generally, lift each other up. Simply being a beacon of light and love can strengthen your bond in unexpected ways. Give it a try the next time you spend time with family!

There are many ways to get spiritual with your family – without making them feel uncomfortable or overwhelmed. Give these suggestions a try and see what happens.

Will you try any of these? Share your own suggestions!

Memories First, Possessions Second

As much as I hate to admit it at times, I can be very sentimental. This is especially true when it comes to certain pieces that have been handed down through family members. I don't collect much from family, because I can't stand the clutter, but over the years I have received some pieces that are extremely valuable to me. Pieces I know that if they became lost of broken I would be devastated. That is no exaggeration. Seriously I brought the mirror my grandmother gave me in my car when we moved because I kept having visions of someone breaking it. It was the last thing she ever gave me for Christmas before she passed and I can't imagine life without it.

There are other pieces that I have received  that also mean a lot to me. The emerald ring Nan had, and the sewing table (I am talking old school with the cast iron spindle at the bottom) from the cottage that I used to sit on as a child and play with. These items I associate with particular memories. My grandmother had many expensive pieces of jewellery, but that ring stands out to me more than anything else. That sewing table bit my fingers more times than I care to admit, but it was also relaxing and peaceful to sit under and play with the wheel while the adults talked.

One of my greatest surprise gifts I ever received and I am so glad I got it after she passed, is my box of crystals that my grandmother had tucked away. I never even knew she had it. I am glad that even though she is gone, we still have things we can be connected by. It makes me think that she is right there with me.

You may find this disturbing, but bare with me for a sec and listen to my entire explanation before you pass judgement. Ever since Nan passed, I sometimes sit in either my mom's home or my grandparents apartment and wonder what I will have to remember them by. Nan had always felt comfortable talking to me about death and what she wanted after she died (there have been some really quirky ideas such as her ashes being made into a diamond), so it doesn't bother me to think about it every once in awhile. I certainly don't want anyone to go any time soon, but unfortunately the reality is that it will happen at some point. Because of that, I am so desperate to have something of theirs as my "security blanket". It's never the expensive things, but more the sentimental items that always carry the most memories for me.

 A lot of people put an emphasis on what they think they "deserve" to get after someone passes. If one of those people are reading this right now, I strongly urge you not to. You will never be truly happy with the items you receive then. Instead think (with love in your heart) about the memories you have of that person. Instead of going for the most expensive things, go for the small pieces that hold the most love for you. Memories are more valuable than an impersonal piece any day of the week.
