La Belle Femme Scorpio

Filed in Scorpio

Zadie (White Teeth) Smith has an apparently “dazzling” new novel out & it’s in promo mode all over the place. Here is a snip from an excerpt in the Guardian;

Leah blushes, not having intended to speak of this delicate, unfinished thing.

– Does your mans know?

– I took the test this morning. Then you came.

– Pray for a girl. Boys are hell.

Shar has a dark look. She grins satanically. Around each tooth the gum is black. She walks back to Leah and presses her hands flat against Leah’s stomach.

– Let me feel. I can tell things. Don’t matter how early. Come here. Not gonna hurt you. It’s like a gift. My mum was the same way. Come here.

She reaches for Leah and pulls her forward. Leah lets her. Shar places her hands back where they were.

Gonna be a girl, definite. Scorpio, too, proper trouble. A runner.

Leah laughs. She feels a heat rising between the girl’s sweaty hands and her own clammy stomach.

– Like an athlete?

– Nah … the kind who runs away. You’ll need one eye on her, all the time.

What interests me about this is that Zadie Smith IS a Scorpio – a triple Scorpio, Sun-Uranus-North Node.  So, i suspect, is her little baby daughter, born “late” in 2009.  I wouldn’t have thought Scorpio girls especially likely to bolt – that honor would go more to the Saggo would it not?

There is a ye olde astro tale that Scorpios beget Scorpios lol. Another saying is that when a Scorpio passes, a Scorpio (in the same family group) is born to take his/her place.

And, a compliment from a Scorpio can cure warts or bring on a thunderstorm.  Okay, i just made that one up.

Oh yeah!! My nan passed and then my scorpio daughter was born on her birthday. Totally freaky. One took the place of the other.

Interesting. I’m a Scorpio & so is my husband. We just learned last month that we can expect a little Taurus next year if all goes well.

A longer excerpt here:

The comments section is of interest because there are more deleted posts than ones intact, and most others are either negative criticism based on gender & race or a complaint about those charged comments.

Coming from a Scorpio five times over…I made it a specialty of mine to run away. I always had to give myself up because they never could find me. I had a very controlling judgmental father and a passive mother. So the combination was intolerable. I was on a whole other plain compared to my parents. The teen years were tough but once I was on my own at 17 things settled down and I was able to have a relationship with them. I just can’t handle people that have to have their thumbs over you all time. I need… Read more »

Interesting theory, from my experience, that is correct – My ex is a scorpio, son no 1 is multiple scorp & scorp rising, son no 2 is pisces, scorp rising.

I’m multiple conjunct Scorp married to a man who has Scorpio moon and rising and two daughters (from his first marriage) who are both Scorps!

A compliment from a Scorpio DOES feel that way 🙂 Always rocks my world.

“Run” sounds like it means run down their own path, to their own goals. Also sounds particularly Uranian Scorp. I know a Scorp who wouldn’t run if you cattle prodded him. Especially if that!

I’ve been known to bolt (whack of Sag in my chart) or disappear (Pisces) but it’s different reasons and energy.

Yes, agree about the Uranus flavoring to Zadie Smith’s description. The Scorpio energy either drills inward or forcibly moves things out of its path. A Scorpio will leave a situation that’s no longer working, but usually after exhausting several other options.

My father passed when I was 8 weeks preggers; an Italian lady laid her hands on my bulging belly when I was about 30 weeks and announced “Ah, she’s a boy!” She was right…

Haha. Love it.

Nailed it too. My Scorpio mother would say yes to the above. Proper trouble. A runner.

Hmmm… now I’m desperately trying to work out who died so that I could begat the Mini Scorp….

We’ve had so many deaths in the family over the last few years 🙁 The funny thing is, I’ve always felt that Mr Squeaky is my Uncle, who died a few years ago of cancer… I suppose time will tell….

PS: Stellium in Scorp – I also have an Aquarius and a Taurus. I’m either being tested or tortured 😀

My Mum’s a Scorpio, none of my friends have warts and I absolutely love thunderstorms, all that lightning and thunder clashing…fabulous!

Looks to me like she might have Scorpio rising. (Not that you asked, but that was the first thing that struck me from first glance at her picture.)

How exciting! I loved White Teeth.

And so good to hear the world has at least a constant supply of Scorps!

Read White Teeth three times. It’s brilliant. PBS Masterpiece Theater did a very good TV version of it but too bad somebody fuq’d up and didn’t get permission for the pop music they used so it can’t air again.

Ah, I saw a TV adaptation of it some years ago in Australia as a series, though reckon that might have been BBC or Ch4?? Anyway, regardless of who made it, it was excellent.
