MYL Scorpio Blend
Okay, so if you have been following the astrology series, you probably know I am a Scorpio.
Not just a Scorpio, but a proud Scorpio. If being loyal and honest is wrong, then I don't want to be right. But we sit in the Eighth house, death and inheritance, so we can be a little intense. Or more importantly, it can be a little intense to BE a Scorpio. Loyalty, sex, the underworld, overthinking, overworking, well, it gets a bit much
That's where oils come in. Shall we begin?
Key Oil: Jasmine or Patchouli
Oil Blend: neroli, vetiver, lavender
Those born under the sign of the Scorpio are often perceived as intuitive and sensual beings with a powerful and mysterious aurora about them. They are determined, intense and loyal to their cause, often making as many friends as enemies. Scorpio is all about death and rebirth, going deep within, awaiting the promise of regeneration. Just as in November we watch the leaves fall off the trees and see the plants and animals begin their hibernation with the promise of spring, so it is with Scorpios, who feel impelled to explore the darkest winter of the soul before redefining themselves and being reborn.
Often, in order for Scorpios to get the impetus to transmute themselves into this new and stronger being, they will investigate hitting rock bottom and going to the pits of their existence in order to find the strength to pull out.
Scorpios are perceptive and intuitive and thus make good healers. They extend a strong sense of support and trust to the client, offering them the light to see into their own personal underworld. Scorpios have a strong will and usually get what they want; although having achieved it, usually find little interest in the continued pursuit of their most frequent obsession. Their determined mind supports a strong survival instinct and they know exactly what will please them in the moment. And often what pleases the Scorpionic nature is sex, another of Pluto’s gifts. Scorpios have a highly developed sense of sensuality and enjoy exploring sexual pleasure with all their senses, although the challenge for the Scorpio is to ground the experience rather than go into sexual overdrive. They need to find a way to accept their vulnerability and open their hearts rather than surrender to the purely physical eroticism of sex.
Scorpios can be intensely loyal friends. For that matter, anything a Scorpio does is intense – and passionate; both for the good and bad. Scorpios never forgets a great kindness done to them, but they also never forget an injury. Being so passionate, powerful and determined makes Scorpios intense friends. You never quite know what they are thinking until you asked them, and then you’ll get such a direct and honest answer that you may feel blown away. But whether they are loving you or hating you, they are doing it with their entire being. So avoid their stinging tails and know the journey you take with a Scorpio will be deep, dark and powerful.
Not all Scorpios can get this intense, there will be the rare few who will get in deep and allow their dark sides to take the lead. In those cases, they may resort to manipulation tactics in order to even the score.
Jasmine, the oil of sexuality, helps balance Scorpio, which is ruled by the body’s repreoductive organs. This intense and powerful energy is best supported by Jasmine, which works wonders for healing the emotional and psychological impact of stress and provides a relieving and soothing energy, opening the heart to accepting what is and balancing any obsessiveness. It gives relief from anxiety, stress, annoyance, anger and depression. It can supply the extra energy when you don't have anything left to give. For those Scorpios dealing with betrayal and abandonment, Patchouli can help soften the heart of this powerful sign, making it easier for the scorpion to move on and forgive. Patchouli calms down the body, mind and soul while bringing forth positive and constructive emotions. A little goes a long way with this oil, so take it slow and let it pick up the slack.
Essential oils that can assist the journey into this dark and deep inner world are frankincense, patchouli, neroli, myrrh, juniper berry, cypress, sandalwood, cedarwood and vetiver.
