Scorpio is the only horoscope sign that has three animal totems. The Scorpion has an active tail, but as the Scorpio masters its passion and holds its instincts at bay, it changes into the Eagle, with more perspective, who can fly above the rest and make more conscious decisions. The Eagle then becomes the peaceful dove. Thus, the real meaning of Scorpio is about metamorphosis. Scorpios transform their poisonous passion into a higher consciousness based on universal love.
Your motto might be "What is hidden is more interesting than what is obvious." You are the detectives of the zodiac. While your magnetic personality draws others in, you are very secretive -- because you’re so intense, you don’t want to scare off others. You desperately want to have someone to merge with your feelings, but often withdraw in love. Sometimes you would benefit by looking at the positive side of things rather than going into the darkness.
The Scorpio element is Water
Astrologically, the Water element symbolizes emotion. Water runs deep; it seeks its own level and will flow until it has found it. The cycle of water is endless, as the snow falls into the mountains and melts into the streams. The mountain streams join to make the great rivers that run to the sea. The tides and currents churn the oceans. Similarly, our feelings are flowing as they connect the present with past experiences. Sometimes the waters are so deep that we cannot find words for our feelings.
The Water of Scorpio is fixed and frozen, but it is a mistake to think that ice doesn't flow. It does flow -- and with great power. Think of a glacier, moving so very slowly, yet with enough force to flatten a forest or even
Horoscope house: 8th
Since the 2nd house is the House of Possessions, the 8th house is the opposite, focusing on what other people have. This can include sexual issues, for they usually involve another person. It is also about the ultimate transformation -- death -- but not necessarily your own. It could be said that the 8th house is what we don't know and what we cannot understand. It is surely a House of Hidden Power.
Scorpio's key planet: Pluto
As the key planet for Scorpio, Pluto is intense and powerful, representing those things that we don't or can't understand. It is from these hidden Plutonic spaces that magical transformations arise. Your curiosity spans a wide range of topics.
Pluto is the Lord of the Underworld. If this sounds scary, it demands a bit more explanation, for Pluto symbolizes everything that is beneath our consciousness. This isn't about the Hell where we are punished. Rather, it is the Hell that William Blake describes as a place "so beautiful that it would torment an angel

As time changes, our tastes and preferences also tend to change. And in this evolving environment we often forget where we belong and leave it far behind.
I enjoy music and believe in its powers, and honestly prefer to hear more of the western music than the Indian Pop and Bollywood styles. But when I got a chance to hear The Sarod, The Satvik Veena and some other folk performances, I couldn't realize what all I was missing and how less I knew.
When I joined Spic Macay, I never thought that it would be such a lively experience. The melodies that these instruments bring forth are definite to calm your senses. The music they produce is deemed to take you into deep meditation and relax your soul.
When I think of Kashmir, I imagine beautiful valleys, glowing river and fantastic view, and a little turmoil due to political debacle. But when I heard their folk music, it was a totally new experience. It had passion, smoothness and energy,so much so, that girls listening to the music couldn't stop themselves from jumping onto the stage. The crowd which was dead as iron a little while ago was cheering and enjoying the music with complete enthusiasm.
I do hope that this lovely culture lives on for generations,and am great full to those artist who strive to keep this art alive and present it to us to enrich our lives!!
