In a recent PEOPLE magazine cover story, gorgeous Scorpio Ryan Gosling was touted as “America’s Most Wanted Man”. Indeed Scorpio men tend to turn women into a tizzy, and they are quite aware of their effect.
Scorpio men are passionate, intense and driven. And as PEOPLE wisely noted, “sexy, secretive, mysterious and seductive” as well. Scorpio men (and women) tend to have issues with boundaries- they either want ALL of something (or someone), or none of it. Hence, they can seem icy and aloof to those who don’t strike their fancy, and almost overwhelmingly attached to those whom they admire or are intrigued by. In love, this all or nothing dictum also holds. Brief flings barely register emotionally for them, while love can consume them completely and they seek stable, and transformative, long term relationships.
Their female ideal is a woman of the Taurus archetype- slow, sensual, feminine and sturdy. Passion, but also reliability, is important to them. His relationship with creative Pisces Eva Mendes is a romantic departure from his pattern of dating strong stubborn women, namely fellow privacy-craving Scorpio Rachel McAdams and Leo Sandra Bullock. Pisces are sensitive and intuitive like Scorpio and Eva and Ryan connect on this level.
Other sexy Scorpio men who mesmerizes us include Ryan Reynolds, Josh Duhamel, Eric Dane, Ethan Hawke, Matthew McConaughey, Gerard Butler, and Leonard DiCaprio.
Well.. the day is finally here.. December 21, 2012!!! Very exciting.
In the Mayan long count calendar (5,125 years long) we are now back at 0. The end.. or the beginning.. depending on how you look at it. The popular pop perspective on the end of the Mayan calendar is that the world is going to end. The popular holistic perspective is that we are in the midst of a paradigm shift in consciousness. That the true “Age of Aquarius” is finally upon us- a 2,000 year era- where life on earth becomes truly equal and free for all, an era of universal humanity as well as radical technological progress. The Mayans themselves actually had calendars and predictions extending beyond 2012, so there is little evidence they saw it as an apocalypse, but an important date none-the-less.
One of the most interesting theories of the Mayan calendar that I have read has to do with the theory of time acceleration- that during each of the major “re-set” points in the Mayan calendar, time actually accelerates. That our actual human experience of TIME is different than it was for people who lived thousands of years ago. With the technology we now have, and it’s pervasive impact in our everyday lives, this notion may not be as fantastical as it seems. So perhaps we are on the cusp of yet another massive technological breakthrough, that will remodel our lives, and our interconnections, yet again.
However you choose to celebrate or interpret the Mayans (and their fascinating, ancient, and illuminating science), I wish you the very best in next ERA of your life!
Today is December 12, 2012- Otherwise known as 12-12-12!! The number twelve carries the vibration of Pisces, the 12th sign of the zodiac- the sign of spirituality, unity and completion. People (or marriages) with a heavy 12 influence are caring and compassionate but also playful and fun loving. Adding the playfulness is the fact that both the sun and the moon are in Sagittarius today (as we approach the New Moon tomorrow) which bestows an adventurous, free and philosophical spirit. Both Pisces and Sagittarius are associated with the “planet of good luck” Jupiter so 12-12-12 is a lucky day indeed! And I was lucky enough to share about 12-12-12 this morning on ABC’s Good Morning America! Lucky indeed!
Magazine editor extraordinare, Helen Gurley Brown, passed away this week. Born on February 18th, Helen epitomized many of the best qualities of independent and forward thinking Aquarius. Rather than bow to her era’s standards of “what was expected” of women, she envisioned- and helped create- a bright future for young ladies, full of career achievement and sexual liberation.
At the helm of “Cosmopolitan” magazine from 1965-1997, she gave women the support, and the know-how, they needed to break out of outdated cultural roles. Aquarians are visionaries and are extremely dedicated and focused. They tend to be single mined in their commitment to certain things and difficult to sway from their core beliefs. In Brown’s case this was the belief that women can have it all, and have fun doing it! And we all have her to thank for that.
Pisces is ruled by the watery planet Neptune, and they are prone to be overwhelmed by the people and emotions around them. This can play out in a number of way- they can latch on to their empathy and go into a care giving profession (a huge number of social workers and nurses are Pisces, for example), OR they can get swept up in sex, drugs and rock n’roll (anything that they can ride high on). And many Pisces also get swept away in their relationships- having a hard time navigating where their partner ends and they begin.
Pisces Jessica Biel addresses this Pisces tendency of hers in the August 2012 issue of InStyle, and how she has been struggling to tap into her independence in her relationship with Aquarian fiance Justin Timberlake. That’s good, because Aquarians need freedom and autonomy in their marriages!
“In my earlier experiences with relationships, I was really vulnerable to somebody else’s personality, hobbies and way of life. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve become proud of the traits that make me who I am. Maintaining my individuality is really important to me because otherwise I can easily slip into somebody else’s life. So I’m glad I’m getting better at it. It’s a process, but it’s getting simpler.”
