Last month we explored the foundation of Western beauty ideals and it’s impact on our understanding of aesthetics. The Perfection of Beauty according to Libra. How does beauty translate from a Scorpio lens? Is it all mystery, possession and sex?
The short answer is yes. On the surface Scorpio glamour capitalizes on the social mores placed on sexuality and the sensual. Sexuality is everywhere in Western society and yet, it is shunned. Pushed to the fringes to be consumed in bits and pieces – distorted. Media is filled with images that can be interpreted in a sexual manner yet the topic of sex is still taboo in public discourse. This suppresses our expression of our emotional and physical desires. Desires only to be explored in whispers or through the approved channels.
Why? Sex is not inherently frightening. It is what sex can represent. A chance to remove all pretense of persona and to just be with another. It is the next step of the evolution from Libra to Scorpio. Libra brings us balance with harmony through intimacy. A social process. Scorpio removes the boundaries of the physical to expose the heart. It is here that we can fully connect with the other. Emotional vulnerability.
Defenseless we move to be a part of something more than ourselves. We are naked, unprotected. Here we are exposed to the truth of our weakness. That all of our big defenses created through the ego cannot save us in the end. We cannot escape the truth of the inevitability of death. So we play as close to it as possible. Experiencing the freedom, release, and tinge of fear from meeting the divine in each other and ourselves well before our time. Here, we find the sweetness of love, pleasure, and hope. Here we realize that the end if only the beginning.
Scorpio’s truest glamour is to embody their sexuality fully and without fear.
To magnetize the power of their feelings to manifest their desires.
Embracing the reality of one’s mortality may trigger the life and death instinct in others. It attracts them to us while also repelling them. The key is the unknown. We long to understand it. To conquer it. To be embraced by it.
Scorpio becomes this trigger. This key. This power. Learn to see the heart of others through the veil of darkness by accepting your sexual nature and you will have mastered the art of Scorpian glamour.
