I have a few things to add about Scorpion Meaning - Scorpion Symbolism...

But first, thank you for creating this website.

I'm writing to express my sadness around your perception of scorpions and Scorpio energy. I get the sense that you are missing out on a key quality of this special energy that could provide insight, compassion and appreciation for this often misunderstood sign.

Scorpio(n)s are, above all, very *sensitive and passionate feelers*, which is why they have the tendency to be so protective about themselves and to practice selectiveness in who they trust. It is understandable that from the outside, this may appear to be defensive, violent, suspicious, controlling or unemotional energy, but it is indeed only a hard shell armoring the softness within. An article here by Jamie Kahl describes this well: Scorpio Rising and Intimacy

I hope that you will take the time to contemplate this a bit and understand the deep, beautiful tenderness inside scorpion energy that is justifiably so well hidden.

Inquiry About Scorpion Meanings

Hello B!

I re-read the page I wrote on Scorpion Symbolism, and agree with you in that my insights could be misconstrued as derogative.

However, this was never my intent.

I love what you've said/described about the Scorpion. Thank you for your honest, heartfelt (and super-valuable) expressions. Thanks also for allowing me to publish these vital views!

An Important Note About Signs, Symbols and Their Meanings

Signs and symbols cultivate their meanings according to culture, context, passage of time in society as well as mass societal opinion. What's cool and highly important is that signs and symbols earn their most powerful meanings from our own personal perspectives.

This website strives to provide you with the best, time-honored information when defining signs and symbols. However, in the final analysis, "Beauty (and symbolism) is in the eye of the beholder."

Having said that, it's in our best interest to invest the time to do personal research on symbolic events happening to us. This website is just one perspective in an ocean of variety and diversity in the realm of symbolism. So dive in! There is a whole universe of deeper meanings to explore! You can start your research by clicking on the links at the end or to the side of this page. Odds are good I've got a follow-up article about this symbolic topic. ;)

As always, thanks for your willingness to learn more about the language of symbolism. It's a language that is universal and everywhere. It's super-groovy to travel with you on your symbolic path, and maybe offer a little translation along the way. Thanks for reading and exploring!
