Jackie", a new show on Showtime staring Edie Falco, started off the
first show with a great line. Jackie is lying on the floor, trying to get
some relief from her bad back (possibly with a little help from an outside
substance) and mentions her 10th grade English teacher Sister Jane.
Sister Jane once told her - "The people with the greatest capacity
for good are the ones with the greatest capacity for evil."
I often wonder
about that. For those who have the greatest hearts beating, inside could
they also have the potential for the dirtiest of deeds? What makes
one person in a family be a dedicated public servant and another a criminal?
What makes us
so complex that we are capable of both not either? Inside of us is
"good" and "bad'. We can choose to lift someone up or tear
someone apart - both sides are part of us.
To deny we have
both of these sides would be a lie - we all have it in us. In some it is
buried deep down but can be awakened. For example, what about the mom
that would do anything to protect her child? Is she not capable of
inflicting the same pain as a hardened criminal? What's the
difference? Is it the motivation behind it?
As an astrologer,
this makes me think about each side of Scorpio. On one side, Scorpio
rules the detectives and psychologists. They are the ones that can
uncover what's buried deep. On the other hand, Scorpio also rules the mob
and underworld, things that are hidden. So as powerful as Scorpio
is for the good of the world, it is also powerful in the hidden realms.
We are both
dark and light, good and evil – we are a duality that can’t be
ignored. What makes us different from others is what we do with
