“You say that Scorpios absorb other people’s energy and being one I can say this is totally correct. I find I’m a magnifying glass. Whatever emotion is floating around I tend to mirror and magnify it. So my question is, with all of this absorbing, when do Scorps get to have their “own” energy?”
Rox – I think it’s Pisces that absorbs energy. Scorpio exchanges energy which is a different phenomena. Scorpios have their own energy which they use to attract other people’s energy into their lives whether they are aware of this or not. I’ll explain the difference since I can access both scenarios.
Say I go to the gym and I happen to be having a Pisces type day, where my boundaries are compromised. I’m on the mat trying to workout and here comes some guy wanting to talk to me with an agenda on his mind. What he wants to do is screw and this is plainly obvious to me, regardless of what comes out his mouth. And I won’t want to deal with him but I will be defenseless.
See, my daughter is ill and there are periods when it is so demanding and grueling it is barely survivable. During these times… well I am alone. So after awhile, after going 80 rounds, systems begin to fail and it gets pretty scary. I just have no idea how I am going to cope, but I do. And then eventually an opportunity will present and I’ll crawl to the gym to try to escape (1) and to attempt to get grounded and back into my body (2).
Essentially I’ll be trying to begin the recovery process and I’m pretty much desperate in this state. I’m desperate to gather myself and get back on my feet and the last thing I want to deal with is some horny guy, but here he comes.
Too beaten down and beleaguered to fight, he will invade my space, waste my time (which at this point with be precious) while I just stand there wondering why he can’t see that I’m ready to cry.
By the time I finally manage to deflect him, the little bit of steam I may have collected will have dissipated leaving me no choice to to go home feeling defeated, somewhat victimized but mostly just incredibly sad.
So that’s Pisces. You have no boundary, man! Being as you feel like a puddle, people come right up and step on you and you just watch (and marvel) as it happens. Lack of compassion.
In contrast, on a Pluto sort of day, I might be on the cross-trainer alongside someone with a lot of energy. I can feel them… and I know they feel me.
I don’t care if their energy is good or bad. Its energy, therefore it is useful and we workout in tandem, in affect “getting off” on each other.
I work off (feed) off their energy and my energy is there for their use as well. Help yourself, it regenerates.
This energy comes right through the crotch by the way, where the Pisces type surrounds you like a fog. It disappears you, leaves you with a sad feeling… the so-called “divine discontent”. This is how I see this…
