Notte Bianca Retrospective # 10: Scorpio

Hey you all!

We have been waiting for this moment for a while now! As you probably know, Mal and Rita are zodiacal Scorpios (born on the 29th of October) and are incredibly proud of that fact. Unfortunately, Scorpions have a bad reputation among the signs. We are thought to be malicious, negative, depressive and very, very hard to live with.

As Scorpios ourselves, we can say that half of what is being said about us, is completely wrong. We are incredibly loyal and passionate, very creative and curious creatures. We love puzzles, mysteries, crimes we can solve – Scorpios make a great detectives, policeman and judges. We are also very artistic and we love music more than anything else in the world. Our negative traits are being easily offended, taking everything pretty personal and quick-tempered. Scorpios are water sign, but we have the fire burning within us. An angry Scorpio is a spectacular sigh to see : D

Scorpios have soft side as well. We are animal lovers, avid gardeners, movie goers, dedicated   carers- the list can go on forever. Please take a look at other opinions left in the guestbook to form your own!

Liz Coltta from Derbyshire in the UK was the first one to sign a Scorpio guestbook. She left us a lengthy comment describing what it means to be a Scorpion by birth: “I am a Serpentine and extremely sensitive, caring and loving and have the patience of a saint”. Patience is a typical trait for all Scorpios. It doesn’t matter how long something might take, if it is worth their time, Scorpions will make sure it is completed. Both Laura Bush and Hilary Clinton showed their extreme patience during their husbands’ president campaigns. It paid off; they became the first ladies of USA.

Our second comment is the first we received so far from a Czech visitor! Marked only with letter “Z” the note reads: “Scorpions – funny, dreamers, but they follow their own goals and pursuits”. Following their intuition and what they want to achieve can also be considered a trait characteristic for all born under the sign of Scorpio. Bill Gates had a clear vision of what he wanted to do in life – it led him to create an IT empire and to become one of the richest people on the planet. Try to beat that : D! At the bottom of the page, somebody has anonymously added: “Scorpios  —> dangerously sexy”. Ah, flattery, flattery …

We are not sure if there are two separate comments on the page three, or just a single one. Following our Scorpio instinct, we believe there are two entries, both anonymous and the second one is a single-worded. The two first lines say: “Scorpios are loving and caring and even patient. I know, I am one”.  The third line contains only one word “Mysterious”. Scorpios love puzzles and mysteries. We hope we just solved this one!

There are no mysteries on the next page, however. Two opinions, two different authors, and sadly: one entry signed with an unreadable signature and the other is anonymous. The first comment says: “Scorpio – the hard-headed one : D” and second mentions that: “Scorpios are simply the best”. Of course! It is simply obvious that Scorpios are the best. Whoopi Goldberg, American actress and singer has won an Oscar, Grammy, two Emmys, two Golden Globes, a Tony for her work. In addition, she also has a British Academy Film Award, four People’s Choice Awards and has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Throughout the history, Scorpio, the 8th, fixed sign of the Zodiac, have been associated with magic and witchcraft for a number of reasons. Scorpio, the fantastic creature in medieval lore, had the ability to resurrect itself from its own ashes, much like the Phoenix. Scorpio’s ruling planet, Pluto, was considered the master of life and death, and people born under his sign were said to possess unique insight into things and mysterious aura around them. Our next visitor referred to this in the next comment by writing: “Many of them are magnets, they attracts a lot of attention. Black magic?” No, we say it’s just our charm!Scorpio guestbook page scanned by MaliciaPage number six in our guestbook is truly unique! We have three comments, all signed with full names and dates and even one author is quoting the famous philosophical maxim! The first note says: “Gnothi Seauton – Know thyself”. It was left on the 9th of October 2011 by M. Eissa.  The second visitor is named K. Axiaq and the comment reads: “Fierce, creative and imaginative”. C. Cucciandi, the last author, visited Notte Bianca exhibition a day later (10th of October) and left behind a note: “Passionate about what they do!”

After having three signed comments, with the next page, we are back to anonymous contributions. The comment lists the most important Scorpio traits. It reads: “Sensitive, creative, passionate, secretive, hard-headed, fun, fun-loving, caring”. Surely written by a Scorpio person, as nobody else knows us that well!

The guestbook ends with an excellent post from Maltese visitor Andrew Galea Debono (Hiya Andrew :D). We encourage everybody to read it carefully and remembering these words of wisdom: “Scorpios are passionate, sensitive, creative, they get ferocious when angry (so don’t piss them off). They make great lovers but dangerous partners… : D”. Amen.

All right, we hope you have learnt more about us, The Scorpios.
The devil is not so black as they paint him, obviously.

Our next guest will be the mighty bull – The Taurus.
Till we meet again,
Mal and Rita
