This is the path of the evolved Warrior. The mantram for Scorpio is, “Warrior am I and from the battle I emerge triumphant.” We are asked to do battle with our lower selves, our ego, the unredeemed parts of ourselves that usually hang out in the underworld.
Once these unfinished parts of ourselves are recognized, accepted and held in the cauldron of a loving heart, transformation occurs. And this is the Scorpio journey. We are tested, we have trials, but we emerge triumphant.
