“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”
― Carl Sagan
This quote by Carl Sagan (who was a Scorpio) exemplifies the fact that Scorpios like to immerse themselves DEEPLY in whatever has attracted their interest. This could be a person, place, activity, or subject of interest. I have a deep fascination with the cosmos and the workings of the universe which is probably why Carl Sagan was the Scorpio that popped into my mind when thinking about this blog.
In this blog, I will talk more about Scorpio associations, gemstones that resonate with them, and the jewelry I have created for them. I have created two pieces in my zodiac collection for Scorpio that feature sterling silver Scorpio symbols and gemstones that resonate strongly with this sign. These jewelry pieces are a meaningful and unique way to express the Scorpio soul.

- Symbol: Scorpion. The Scorpio “M” glyph has a long-pointed tail to represent the Scorpions stinger.

Karmic (Esoteric) Astrology
Astrology offers so much more information then just what your sun sign is. Over ten years ago, I had a birth chart analysis done that was referred to as karmic astrology. This type of astrological analysis focuses on the meaning behind the north and south node in your natal chart.
The north node refers to your soul's potential. It speaks to what energy and learning you could incorporate to promote the growth of your soul. The south node refers to your soul's pattern from past lives. It speaks to the gifts and the challenges that you bring with you into this lifetime.
In my natal chart, my south node is in Scorpio. I mention this in this blog because although your sun sign may not be in Scorpio, it is possible to have Scorpio influences in your natal chart. To find out what zodiac sign is in your north and south node go to www.astro.com to create a free astrologocial chart.
Gemstones for Scorpio
There are specific gemstones that resonate strongly with each zodiac sign. This does not mean that you aren’t able to wear ANY gemstone that you are attracted to. It simply means that some gemstones have a natural energetic affinity with your zodiac sign. Gemstones that have a strong resonance with Scorpio are malachite, black obsidian, moonstone, topaz, rhodochrosite, jasper, agate, labradorite, peridot and turquoise to name a few. I chose black obsidian and malachite as the main gemstones to work with for the Scorpio pieces. I outline below their energetic properties and the Scorpio pieces that are part of the line.
Wearing Jewelry for Sun and Moon Signs
I have had clients who purchased two different zodiac bracelets to wear together. One bracelet represents their sun sign, and the other their moon sign (i.e. Scorpio and Libra). This enables them to express themselves in a personal and meaningful way, AND benefit from the energy of both gemstones!
It is a very protective and grounding stone. It shields someone from negativity in the environment and others. It is said to draw out mental stress and bring clarity of mind. It promotes intuition and creativity.

It helps to absorb and clear negative energy within the body. Malachite is said to clear and activate the chakras (in particular the heart chakra) and assist with tapping into spiritual guidance. It is thought to stimulate creativity, and assist with letting go of old patterns, inhibitions, and negative experiences.

The Truth Will Set You Free
Scorpions say what they feel. They are the zodiac sign that delivers unfiltered truth when speaking. Sometimes what they say may seem harsh. It is really the tone and choice of words that determines whether a message is harsh not the fact that truth is being spoken. Truth, at its best, is coming from a loving place that has the welfare of the receiver in mind. If someone tells you the truth, they are showing you respect and that they value you enough to do so.
Carl Sagan has a very relevant quote about the universe that is based on the concept of truth. “For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.”
Some people might say that ignorance is bliss. Well, it is definitely easier to ignore the truth if it is not what you want to hear. If you build your home, your dreams, or your life, upon a weak (untruthful) foundation, it has the potential to crumble as soon as it encounters a strong opposing force. I prefer to build all aspects of my life upon a solid foundation knowing the truth of what is really going on. This way I can make informed decisions in the moment and anticipate future scenarios.
Living with truth as your compass opens you up to discovering channels for change and growth. In my opinion, soul growth is one of the main reasons that we have been given the gift of this life. Our work while we are here is to grow our soul through heart, mind, and body experiences.
If you are comfortable living with delusion, as Carl Sagan says, chances are that you are afraid of making changes for fear of the unknown, or you don't want to burst the bubble you are in. It is human nature to not want something good to end. I get it. However, growth is inhibited when you live in fear or never make any changes.
We all could learn from the Scorpio desire to know and speak the truth. It is a courageous path to follow. It is a path that I deeply believe in which is why I chose “Live Your Truth” as one of my business mantras. If we all offered ourselves, and each other, the commitment to being compassionately truthful imagine how different the world would be? At the very least, it would be mind and soul expanding.
Today more than ever, I understand the saying "the truth will set you free.” The path of truth frees you to discover limitless potential. All you need is the desire and courage to pursue it.
