The sun moved into Scorpio this morning. For that reason, I’ve chosen to illustrate this post with a photo of Bethenny Frankel. She is a Scorpio’s Scorpio, with the sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Neptune in the sign, all opposite Saturn in Taurus. What’s more, she has a Capricorn moon. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a more hard-assed chart. She must be a nightmare to be around.
In my new book, “Star Struck Style,” I mention that I could probably write an entire book about Bethenny and her fellow Scorpio, Ramona “The Stinger” Singer. The two stars of “The Real Housewives of New York” exemplify every rotten quality of the sign. However, during the past season of the show, Bethenny began redeeming herself by actually behaving like a human. Her redemption tour continued off the show, too, as she became an integral part of the relief effort in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.
Transformation and metamorphosis are themes associated with Scorpio. There was a time in the past that I never would have believed that I would grow to like Bethenny. Somehow, though, she has managed to prove that she isn’t just a giant Scorpion hiding behind a rubber mask and a bondage-inspired ensemble. I have been surprised by her humanity and generosity. She has completely transformed my opinion of her. I used to believe that she nothing more than an inconsiderate bitch.
I use the word “inconsiderate” often when I discuss Scorpio natives. They can never see it in themselves, and they take offense to someone like me when I point it out. But they can be real jerks when they don’t get what they want, and they will go out their way to assassinate your character when you don’t put up with their bullshit. Still, I kind of like them. With my own sun in Capricorn and moon in Cancer, I can be a hard-ass and a disciplinarian, too.
The one stereotype about Scorpios that I don’t believe is deserved is the notion that Scorpios are sluts. They can be very uptight individuals — even in the bedroom!
I’ll discuss several more Scorpio celebrities over the next thirty days while the sun transits the sign. But in the meantime, just be happy that your sign now has a poster girl worthy of all the horrible press you Scorpios have received in the past. Bethenny Frankel is your new leader. Bow down to your arachnid queen!
