Selkie writes on the What’s The Deal With Scorpio Freezing You Out post:
“I wasn’t tryin to vilify Scorpios, just balance out what I’d been reading for several months!”
This post was written in 2007 in response the the passionate discussion the original piece provoked. With Saturn in Virgo I felt pressured to make a statement so I did….
On the balance regarding Scorpio, I do favor them probably because by and large they are the only people who can actually stand me.
I am also quick to turn the bastard version inside out and oddly enough about 6 weeks ago (maybe a little more) there was a rash of Scorpio bashing here. It took place on an old blog. Someone left a nasty comment and others followed. I had never really seen that on my blog before and just let it be…
But a week later I wrote some pro-Scorpio blogs. I have Mars in Libra, see? Mercury too, so I can only have things go so far out of whack and I really didn’t want people coming here and thinking this was the SCORPIO HATE blog.
As to the way I tend to write about Scorpio in a positive way in general, this is also a “balance” thing. I read so much slithering stuff about Scorpio it bores me.
Same with Capricorn. I write nice about them too for the same reason. The whole upside of Venus in aspect with Saturn series I did awhile back is an example. Mars in aspect with Saturn and the soldier… same thing.
I sort of have no choice but to try to balance what is already out there however I can see both sides ALWAYS. And to me, mentioning that Scorpio can be deadly in every post would be as silly as mentioning Gemini can be flaky. I try to keep my posts as short as possible and just can’t cover every base like that.
I can however, stand on the 3000 (then, 6000 now) or so blogs that make up this site and the other thousands of pages I wrote on my original blog and at this point this is what I am going to do. Capricorn, see? There is a mountain of work under me at this point and by and large it is pretty good. Even when it’s not good it’s generally entertaining, so what the hell?
I think am sort of like astrology at this point (and this is not directed at you, Selkie, it is just a statement). I think a person ought to do a little research before they dismiss me as bogus because I am pretty sure if they do… well, they will start to study astrology at the very least.
