Scorpio: Why Your Life Sucks and What to Do About It
I’m a Scorpio moon sign and I love Scorpios, so this is not meant to cut you down or insult you. Scorpios are awesome! In fact, let me know if you’re a Scorpio:I'm a Scorpio! ♏️ Click To Tweet
Whether you just feel like something is wrong or you know exactly what’s up, here are some tips to consider:
1). You’re Not Opening Up
No one can help you if they don’t know you need help! I get it, you don’t WANT to need help. You want to do it all yourself and never have a sick day, but guess what? That’s not happening. Life is tough, and people in our lives are usually willing to help. You’d be surprised at who is willing to help and how they’ll help, you just have to ask!
The Solution: You’re going to have to be vulnerable and let people see your weakness. It won’t be easy, but it’s important for your soul to open up to those around you. Those who shame or shun you for revealing your needs are just people you didn’t need in your life anyway! Choose a few people you trust and reach out to ask for help.
2). You’re Being Too Honest
Honesty is great, and we all need it. However, Scorpios can take honesty to the next level. There’s a huge difference between “Susan, maybe this dress would fit you better,” and “Susan you look like absolute trash lmao.”
The Solution: Before speaking your mind, create a list of alternative ways to say it. Scorpios are blessed with intuitive empathy, so you already know when you’re being too honest. It’s just a matter of knowing when and how to pull back a little bit.
3). You’re Refusing to See Your Own Role in This
Apologizing can be difficult for Scorpios, because it involves letting your guard down and admitting a “weakness.” However, there is a way to own up to your faults, apologize for them, and work on them in a way that exudes strength.
Chances are, you’ve played a part in this situation, no matter how small. Acknowledging it may be the key to moving forward.
The Solution: Even if you’re not the primary one at fault, try to see if you can see your own role in the situation (this does NOT apply to situations like abuse, etc. If you are a victim, please seek help asap). For regular arguments or problems, we usually contribute at least a little bit to each situation. See where you went wrong, and either right it or apologize. What do you have to lose?
4). Your Emotions are a Mess
Depending on when you’re reading this, you may be more emotional than usual. Maybe something is in retrograde, maybe you’re on your period, who knows. Scorpios can be highly emotional on a daily basis, so you may be simply overloaded. As a Scorpio moon, my emotions are a constant chaotic mess. A butterfly can make me burst into tears, a leaf can enrage me, it’s a lot. So this is me taking my own advice here. Thankfully I’m a Virgo sun, so I balance out my emotions with stone-cold analytical witchery. Check your moon and rising signs to see if your solutions might lie there!
The Solution: Remember, you are not your emotions. These feelings will pass, but facts and situations will likely remain the same. Sometimes if you’re having a really tough day, all you can do is focus on getting through it. If that’s all you do, count it as a win. Also, if you have access to mental health resources and/or medications, please seek help if you feel like you need it. There should be NO SHAME in taking meds or seeking help for your mental health. It takes a warrior to realize their weaknesses and improve them.
5). You’re Overreacting
Come on, Scorpio. Be honest with yourself. Is this problem THAT bad, or are you coming out swinging because you don’t want to look weak? If you’re already emotional, and you’re hiding your emotions as Scorpios tend to do, you’re probably not in the best headspace to judge what’s happening.
Of course, this depends on your situation. There are times when you are absolutely NOT overreacting, and I trust that you will intuitively know that. If this one doesn’t apply, or if any of them don’t apply, that’s fine! No need to force a solution onto your particular situation.
The Solution: Try to zoom out for a bit. See if you can get a neutral or 3rd party opinion on the situation (therapists are great for this, btw). If it turns out you’re overreacting, take some time until your emotions aren’t as intense. This kind of ties into #4 above. However, some of your problems might be easily resolved if you look at them from a different perspective!
