Intense, passionate, fearless. These adjectives are often used to describe a Scorpio child, but they barely scratch the surface. These kids are complex and mysterious and often a complete enigma to the people who love and know them best.
As a parent, look back to the birth of your Scorpio child. Were there any unusual events surrounding the child’s birth? Was he born before or after his due date? Synchronically often occurs during major transitions in our lives, and a birth certainly qualifies as a major event. Can you recall any meaningful coincidences that happened? Does your partner or another family member recall anything unusual? Was the birth easy or difficult?
In a young group or her peers, the Scorpio child is easy to spot – she’s the solitary brooder, the one with the soulful eyes who appears to be lost in her own thought. She’s actually checking out everything around her quite carefully and has learned to do this without seeming so. If Scorpio joins in the activities, it’s with a few close friends who are as loyal to her as she is them.
Early on, you’ll notice your Scorpio child’s potent emotions, which are her primary vehicle for exploring the world. Unlike her water sign cousins, Cancer and Pisces, the driving intensity of these emotions can sometimes overpower other children. And at times, they can overwhelm you, too. The best way to deal with it is to allow your Scorpio to experience the full range of her emotions and encourage her to talk about what she feels.
Scorpio blows only when he’s pushed to the absolute edge, so these emotional outbursts aren’t temper tantrums. He simply needs some help understanding why he feels things so deeply while other kids go on their merry way.
Emotional release for a Scorpio child can be found through any creative outlet: art, music, writing, photography, gardening. Many Scorpio children have so much innate talent that they don’t need formal lessons to play an instrument or to draw or paint. They’re naturals. They pick up a paintbrush, and off they go. Or they sit down at a piano and play even if they can’t read a note of music.
Intuition/Creativity & Your Scorpio Child
Since many Scorpios seem to be born intuitive, these kids enjoy games in which they must use their intuition. One game that Scorpio might enjoy involves telepathy. In this game, one of you acts as the sender and the other is the receiver. The sender should think of a color and make the visualization as vivid and bold as possible instead of just visualizing red, make it scarlet. The receiver should sit quietly with his eyes shut, mind a blank and say the first color that pops into his head. With a little practice, the results may astonish you.
How about you, Readers? Have any of you had a Scorpio child in your family? Share your observations and suggestions in the comment section below this article. I’m hoping Trish herself will stop by at some point to say hello.
