What advice if any, would you give to a parent of a child who is a Scorpio, 8th house, Pluto type. How does a parent explain to the child that is repulsive to so many that it will not always be this way?
This is a great question, thanks.
My first thought was that you could not the tell the child that it will not always be this way, because that’s probably not true.
Further, the child, even if very young, would probably not believe you. They may want to believe you, but their gut would tell them otherwise. Depending on their age, this could leave them quite confused. Why is my mother lying to me?
Of course you would not mean to be lying. But your promise of a breakthrough would not ring true, deep down.
In reality, most Scorpios are going to wind up with a small inner circle. This is also what they’re going to want, by the way. People are not going to just all of the sudden love them some day.
If you want examples of this, just look at any prominent Scorpios. Ask yourself if people actually LIKE them. Do they like them, or are they attracted? There’s a big difference.
Calvin Klein comes to mind. He has large stellium in Scorpio. Do people like him? Or is it something else, entirely? Matt Drudge is another example.
Instead, I would be talking to the child about their nature and the nature of other people. Age appropriate of course. But my focus would be on supporting and developing their life force. Scorpio, at is best is, is psychologically sophisticated.
I would talk to the child about how and why people are threatened. “Here’s what I think? What do you think?” And then stand back and marvel at how much they can tell you.
It’s really no different than raising any other child. My son is a Taurus. I support his interest in art. If my child was a Virgo, there would be a lot of books around, So with Scorpio, you want to let them be themselves which I admit can be hard.
It’s hard, because Scorpio does brood. And if you want a sunny kid all the time, you’ll probably be made uncomfortable yourself!
But it’s no different than dealing with a double Gemini child who won’t shut up, or a Sagittarius child who blurts things that they think are funny, but make you want to hide under the table…
If there is one thing I beg parents of Scorpio children not to do, it’s that they do not betray their child. Because a Scorpio child WILL be betrayed.
It’s really nice if it’s not their mom or dad who does it. It’s not that you can’t make a mistake. But your kid badly needs someone they can trust, so if you can get them to adulthood without breaking their trust, you will truly set them up for a satisfying life.
Please add your remarks around raising Scorpio children.
