Here it goes.
Life is all about emotions, deal with it.
You eat to feel satisfaction and pleasure. You have sex to feel love, pleasure and passion. You want money to feel powerful and free. You want to be a great worker to feel admired, loved and better your self-esteem.
I can give thousands of examples but by now you got the point.
You name it, it all comes down to the production of feelings.
So, if thats the case, i ask you: how do you manage your emotions?
Imagine the worst scenarios, imagine the most fearful situations, how would you deal with it?
How do you deal with your fears?
Hell is not a place, its a feeling. Can you go through personal hell, can you endure it, can you like it?
Are you brave enough? Are you capable of dealing with whatever happens?
Can you handle extreme situations and extreme emotions?
If you like astrology, saturn is in scorpio now.
Its ruler is pluto, the ruler of the underworld (hell).
Pluto can handle hell, not only handle, he likes it, he is its master.
So i ask you? Can you handle your personal hell (worst situations, extreme negative feelings)?
If you can walk through your personal hell with courage, acceptance, uprightness and inner peace, if you are able to like it even, then you learned the lesson of scorpio. You can live anything you want, you are brave enough to live with passion and enthusiasm, you can live it with an all-in attitude with no fear at all of the unforeseen.
You are fully alive!
There is nothing to fear but feat itself.
Unfortunately, however, conventional astrology provides as much real insight into your destiny as a Chinese fortune cookie. In this book, we’ll explore a very different and far more powerful approach. Quite simply, Kabbalah offers the oldest and wisest application of astronomy and astrology known to humankind. As practiced by the kabbalist, the probing of planets and the study of stars is a true science through which we can understand and satisfy our own deepest needs as well as those of others.
Unlike conventional astrology, which insists that everything we do is determined by the heavens, the kabbalistic study of planets and star formation tells us that we are each born at the precise instant that is best suited to our special needs so that we can exercise our free will. Kabbalah teaches that we have many possible futures, and that through kabbalistic wisdom we can become captains of our own ship and masters of our own destiny.
Long before the invention of the telescope, Abraham the Patriarch knew that there were ten planets in our region of space—the sun, the moon, Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn—with the three outer planets, Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto, wholly invisible to the naked eye. In fact, the three outer planets would not be detected for several thousand years to come. Abraham also knew how many years it took the most distant planet, Pluto, to revolve around the sun—248 years—even though this planet would not be discovered for yet another four millennia. Abraham recorded this knowledge in his Book of Formation, which carried the seed of all subsequent astronomical knowledge and kabbalistic wisdom.
The most comprehensive work of Kabbalah is The Zohar, or Book of Splendor, written by Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai around 200 C.E. Building on the Book of Formation, The Zohar encompasses extensive commentary and vast spiritual insight—as well as key ideas about planetary influences and how they affect our lives.
The Book of Formation and The Zohar are the bedrock of kabbalistic knowledge—and nothing in either book is in opposition to the findings of modern science. Both spiritual and scientific disciplines seek to uncover basic truths about the world and our place in it. Scientific disciplines such as physics, astronomy, and medicine examine the world we can see, hear, and touch. Spiritual disciplines such as meditation and astrology study the world that lies beyond the physical realm.
But reality, both spiritual and scientific, turns out to be a pretty slippery thing. We all think we know what it is, but the closer we look the less clear it becomes. In the last hundred years, science has discovered that how we look at something may be more important than what we look at—and that our expectations may be the most important factor determining what we see.
Kabbalah considers the spiritual and the physical worlds to be equally worthy of investigation and analysis. Kabbalah recognizes that these two worlds are not isolated from each other, and that there are necessary and solid links between them.
Kabbalah identifies the link between the spiritual and the physical worlds—the Upper World and the World Below—as the Desire to Receive, and humankind is the highest embodiment of that desire. In other words, humanity is a bridge between the spiritual and the physical realms.

Modern astrology shows the energy involved: what are the challenges? How to overcome them. And it always has to do with self improvement. Success depends only from what we do, we are in full control of our destiny, of our ship, we are the captains.
The only and worst enemy we have is ourselves.
