Scorpio Man Love, Lust, and ObsessionScorpio Man Love, Lust, and Obsession by Nikita Gharat
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think she has described, the Scorpio man point blank. What I liked is the fact that she has elaborated the Scorpio stare.

She let's the girl in love with a Scorpio man distinguish between love and lust. It is true that Scorpio men are known for the loyalty but they can also be brutal heartbreakers. This book helps in finding out whether you are with a keeper or breaker. Also, there are additional chapters such as Scorpio man and eros signs, which help in knowing "what triggers the particular scorpio man".

The book has detailed insight, I loved reading it. Recommended for those in love with a Scorpio man and also for those who are Scorpio themselves.

What is Paranoia: Common signs and symptoms

by Dr. Jerry Kennard 


Paranoid thinking is more common, and more normal, than most people realize. In fact paranoia is as common as the everyday worries and anxieties that most people experience. Some estimates suggest that at any one time up to 25 percent of the population is experiencing paranoid thinking. Unlike anxiety however, our society tends to frown upon open declarations of suspicion. This helps to mask the fact that most of us, at some points in our lives, will have a sense that someone is deliberately trying to upset, harm or irritate us. In fact these are some of the most common examples of paranoid thinking. They tend to be fleeting however and, for the most part, don’t cause undue distress.
The strongest form of suspicion is often referred to as the persecutory delusion. This tends to be associated with mental health problems. Persecutory delusions can take a whole variety of forms. For example, that food is being poisoned, money stolen, malicious rumors spread. Such examples highlight two of the central features of paranoid thinking. The first is that some form of harm is occurring or is about to and the second is that a persecutor is deliberately out to cause harm and distress.
People with more extreme forms of paranoid thinking tend to be more preoccupied with their delusions. When discussing their suspicions they typically use quite assertive and forthright phrases such as, ‘I know she’s out to get me’, or ‘he’s always causing trouble for me’. It’s no surprise perhaps that people who experience high levels of anxiety also tend to have more suspicious natures. Although this may appear an entirely negative situation, there is also a case for such characteristics to be considered adaptive. In times of potential danger or conflict, the increased vigilance and sensitivity of such individuals can act as a protective mechanism. Suspicions may make them less inclined to take risks and to avoid situations that appear potentially harmful.
Persecutory delusions are fixed false beliefs, so-called because even in the face of evidence to the contrary, they remain unshakable. Certain characteristics underpin such delusions. For example, the belief tends not to be shared by other people and seems to lack credibility. Persecutory delusions are nearly always self-referencing in the sense that an impending disaster or harmful situation is about to happen only to that person. The delusion itself becomes a major preoccupation and to the outside observer, is completely embedded with no attempt made to resist it.
Paranoia tends to occur within a context of emotional upset. Stressful events or life circumstances are known to trigger and help maintain paranoid thinking. As people begin to feel isolated they also feel more vulnerable and threatened. It is often the case that paranoia has at least some basis in reality. For example, being bullied, or living on the street and under constant threat of assault.
Paranoia can be treated. The process is broadly similar to that used for negative thinking that reinforces depression. The therapist offers alternatives to paranoid thoughts and in turn encourages the person to do likewise rather than automatically assuming every scenario is negative. Therapy is unlikely to stop the thoughts occurring but it may help to offer some insights into where they come from. Such insights are thought to help make thoughts less threatening and give the person some mastery over their environment.

8th House Synastry: When You Feel It Deeply and Madly!

When the 8th house is affected in synastry, you will feel the hit truly, madly  and deeply. However, the planet person may not know at all. Most of the times people don't understand that in synastry house overlays, the planet person is not affected. It is the house person who feels the energy of the planet. The same is applicable for the asteroids and points. 

The house person is the host while the planet person is the guest. Until unless it has any friend or enemy belonging to the planet person, there is no way the planet person will feel anything. That is why, unrequited love takes place. There are four sensitive points where planets in synastry can affect us deeply such as the ascendant (mind, personality), IC (soul and past lives), descendant (partnerships and open enemies) and MC (family name, public image and professional status).
Nevertheless, there are other points that can be extremely personal such as 2nd house cusp (security needs), 5th house cusp (romance and procreat…

Nessus in Houses, Signs and Synastry: Obsession Out of Control

For most people Nessus symbolizes abuse, excessive lust and manipulation. Although, it cannot be denied that it is associated with these qualities, it is unnatural to associate it solely with these things. I have read excessively disturbing interpretations of Nessus on the internet. I really cannot understand why some astrologers have a prejudice against some asteroids and planets.

In this article, I will try to clear the air about Nessus and will give an insight about reading him in your chart and synastry. To begin with, Nessus is a centaur of Pluto. So, associating him with darkness, manipulation, obsession, possessiveness and excessive lust is understandable. Nessus is an uncontrolled unevolved Pluto. When he has hard aspects natally, then he shows his dark side but when he has good aspects then he can be a problem solver. Good aspects are aspects from Saturn, Jupiter and Chiron. Most astrologers over the internet want to paint a gruesome picture of Nessus. However, I believe thr…
