A turtle was happily swimming along a river when a scorpion hailed it from the shore.
A scorpion, being a very poor swimmer, asked a turtle to carry him on his back across a river. “Are you mad?” exclaimed the turtle. “You’ll sting me while I’m swimming and I’ll drown.”
“My dear turtle,” laughed the scorpion, “if I were to sting you, you would drown and I would go down with you, and drown as well. Now where is the logic in that?”
The turtle thought this over, and saw the logic of the scorpion’s statement. “You’re right!” cried the turtle. “Hop on!” The scorpion climbed aboard and halfway across the river the scorpion gave the turtle a mighty sting. As they both sank to the bottom, the turtle resignedly said:
“Do you mind if I ask you something? You said there’d be no logic in your stinging me. Why did you do it?”
“It has nothing to do with logic,” the drowning scorpion sadly replied. “It’s just my character.”
Jupiter in Scorpio is a blessed event as you may have heard me say elsewhere. We will get down deep, discard the superficial and do what it takes to get deals and projects done. We will go for the sales, even the seemingly “tough” ones. The only caution is that we need to watch out for a tendency to hide or cheat out of greed or a desire for power and control. Our business life will expand and flower in a great way if we remain honorable and open. It will shut down and make us face ourselves in a very painful way if we do not. Our fundamental natures — like the Scorpion’s in that fable — will be available for all to see and experience.
Scorpio has various levels of conscious spiritual evolution represented by archetypes: the Snake, the Scorpion, the Eagle and the Phoenix. The conscious business person is seeking to expand, opening to prosperity in a healthy manner and researching all that is available to make their business life improve. The unconscious business people are the ones, represented by the Snake and the Scorpion, who under Jupiter in Scorpio spend time sneaking into, invading or attempting to acquire other people’s business.
The Scorpio is the Eagle archetype of Scorpio is epitomized by enlightened self-interest on the ego levels. The Phoenix, that mythical creature, is the one who flies too close to the sun yet is transformed and rise from death to fly ever higher This is the ultimate consciousness, exemplified by consciously choosing to take the highest road karmically without ego attachment to outcomes.
Recognizing Jupiter in Scorpio Effects
Here is how you can recognize Jupiter in Scorpio over the next 13 months:
1. People operating at the lowest levels of Jupiter in Scorpio will be very evident, perhaps more so than in the previous 11 years — selfishness, dishonesty, greed and unenlightened self-interest — are not our business. Karma will take care of them.
2. People who interfere with and are focused on other people’s personal and professional lives will be exposed. You do not want to be doing this as it will take your focus off your life and business, create unhealthy lack of boundaries and block you from standing in your own power. You will see it reflected in your finances/money.
3. People who have no faith in the flow of life — yes I am talking about Law of Attraction — will find themselves feeling angry and desperate. Faith, deep and intense faith in that which is unseen, such as Source/Creator, is necessary in this next year. That is where the MAGIC and DIVINE ABUNDANCE will happen.
4. People who are generous through or with their businesses, their personal giving of tie, their spiritual compassion. You will see these people rise to prominence because others will lift them up in respect.
