Why Scorpio Should Start With Loving Kindness Meditation
Before you state your disbelief in horoscopes and skipping this article completely, let me tell you this
- I did not believe in the horoscope for the first 30 years of my life.
- Four of my friends told me that horoscope is only 50% reliable (and guess what, they are all Cancerians .)
- I’m not going to talk about prediction or the best matches for Scorpios.
But I’m going to go deep into the character of this often notorious signs that often caused them heartaches and destruction. And explore how meditation could tame the dark nature of the Scorpio.
The Good And Ugly Side Of A Scorpio
Think Scorpio and think Leonardo DiCaprio, Katy Perry or Hillary Clinton.
Or it could be that someone in your circle of friends who don’t take kindly to lies and betrayal. You wouldn’t want to be on the path of a Scorpio who’s bent on exacting revenge.
Scorpios hide their feeling well. You probably won’t notice anything. But you can be sure that a vengeful Scorpio is manipulative and they hold grudges for a long time. (Think in terms of years rather than days)
Yes. It’s that bad.
While they can be intensely romantic partners, their jealousy and possessiveness often proved to be the undoing of their own relationships.
A sign of the water element, you won’t see their wrath coming until it’s too late. Scorpios hide their emotion well under their often calm appearance.
“Still water runs deep” is the perfect phrase that goes with this sign.
While Scorpios could swing to the extreme negatives, they do have their own noble traits that could really shine if they could tame their darker nature.
Those born under this sign are said to be focused, resourceful and independent. They are resilient in a hard time (although it doesn’t mean they don’t get stressed up).
They are highly competitive and their strong-willed nature borders into stubbornness. You just can’t easily change a Scorpio’s mind once he is set on something. (Yeah, I know it’s frustrating).
And, if you must know, the Scorpio is the only sign among the twelve Zodiacs to have three transformations, The Scorpion, The Eagle and The Phoenix.
You would hardly recognize a Scorpio in the Phoenix transformation where he or she brings healing instead of destruction.
Loving Kindness Meditation For The Vengeful Scorpio
When they are in a vengeful mood, all logic and reasons defy them.
Telling Scorpios to stop being such a sore and start meditating at this point is like asking for a venomous strike from the scorpion tail.
Trust me you don’t want to do that.
Thoughts of revenge put them into anger, hatred, and bitterness. A good dose of loving-kindness meditation could cultivate compassion that could bring some light when they descended into the darkness.

It could be hard to get Scorpio to meditate unless they are also convinced with how meditation could make their mind stronger. They are naturally interested in the mind and its power.
If it’s done right, you could teach the stubborn Scorpio a thing or two about forgiveness.
Calming The Obsessive Scorpio With Mindfulness
Obsessive, jealousy, or excessive worrying.
They are one control freak and could worry endlessly even if the slightest thing went wrong. If you are a Scorpio, you know how your mind turns itself into a living hell for you and make other’s miserable.
If you’re having a Scorpio around you, you know how hard it is to snap out them out of the endless brooding when things go wrong.
Mindfulness meditation is the perfect fit for the obsessive Scorpio. It helps them to separates reality and thoughts resulted from their overthinking.
As they became more aware of their thoughts and emotion, they can keep their darker edge under control and ultimately became a master of their own emotions.
Coupled with loving-kindness meditation and you’ll be surprised to see a much better person in them.
Transforming The Scorpio Into A Phoenix
Perhaps the most frustrating trait of a Scorpio is the fearlessness (or recklessness) they displayed when taking on challenges. This often causes catastrophes in their life and affecting their loved ones in the process.
Certain astrologist argued that it is natural and unavoidable for a Scorpio to undergo this self-destructive process to reach their better self a.k.a The Phoenix.
Whether that is true or a pure myth remain to be seen.
But what’s true is that with better awareness and balanced in their extremes, Scorpios could still reach self-actualization without leaving a trail of destruction.
If you are a Scorpio reading this, tap into the power of meditation before it’s too late.
And Before Being Accused Of Spouting Unproven Zodiac Facts
No. I’m not an astrology expert.
I only took an interest in the horoscope a couple of years back. (You can really sum up my age here).
And you’re missing the point if you don’t see how the proper cultivation of our mind could keep negative emotion checked regardless of what sign we are born under.
It doesn’t matter if you’re Scorpio or Leo or Aries. We all have the tendency to be spiteful, hold grudges, manipulate and be a green jealous monster.
(It’s just that it’s more intense in the unevolved Scorpio)
It’s easier to train our mind in a positive mental state than when we are blinded by rage and hatred.
Try meditating the next time you’re feeling stressed to the max and you’ll know what I mean. You’ll probably find a guide like this helpful then.
And if you haven’t guessed it by now.
Yes. I’m a Scorpio.
I have no choice in my birth sign, but I made a conscious choice in continuously developing my mind and thoughts.
