25 thoughts on “Attraction and Repulsion: Scorpio And The 8th House”

  1. Yeah, I so get this attraction/ repulsion and liked hearing this articulated regarding the 8th house. I have been repulsed by my own strong attractions before. Drawn to someone like a magnet whose pull I cannot resist but ohmygod do I want to resist.

    I draw that very unconventional Uranus/ Pluto energy as well. It was nice to hear this in astro-speak.

  2. Interesting. I wrote a story about this years ago. How do you solve it? I guess there’s really nothing you can do. Transcend, maybe?

  3. I love all things 8th house. This was great. And like everyone else above me said you look fabulous that yellow top

  4. this happens to me all the time. i’ve been trying how to figure out how to put people more at ease for along time but there’s only so much i can do, and only so much energy i can put into it, when people have to take responsibility for their own responses when it comes down to the wire….

  5. totally off topic, but you look spectactular in yellow!!

    I’m usually attracted to things that also repel me…in fact, many boyfriends started out as being “that guy I can’t stand”…lol I think that’s my Pluto energy at work, though.

    About the title, you left out “simultaneously confused”. I’m not sure what the lesson is here, except to say that several people felt simultaneously attracted and repelled during an 8th house transit of Saturn, without knowin why.

    I think that the time to post about it is after you find out why, not before, and with definite realizations, not conjectures.

    It sounds like you are tryin to define who you are by all this. Why not let that be the subject of the inquiry “who am I”, because that answer must come first, before you can answer the question of “why attracted and repelled?”

    1. It is so profound what you have said,- it’s similar to ” an answer is answerd where the question is asked.” The thing is to ask the right question and the ‘reasoning mind’ is not capable of that…it’s a point where the self search is ends and the real journey starts, because you are not pulled in different directions any more.

  7. My goodness, whether it is the Sag rising or the Pisces rising, us Jupiter women sure do look gorgeous in that golden yellow, and especially Elsa tonight! Yeah Lilly, I’m off topic too heh, just had to comment, my brain is too sizzling to say anything coherent right now other than that.

  8. Learning astrology, wish I understood what you said about the 8th house saturn since I have that placement natally, but beginning with your paragraph # two it sounds like … um, Greek? In fact, I am not sure I understand paragraph #1 either, re: learning astrology, you must be a much faster study than I am…Way over my head! .

  9. I too loved this video – gave me lots of food for thought, despite intermittent brain blares of “damn, she looks gorgeous in yellow.”

    For LearningAstrology, maybe Elsa’s recent blog about how she talks backwards would enable you to find the order you prefer within her stories.

  10. I got sidetracked thinking about how sexy a cowboy type can be . . . LOL Damn but I love the way their butts look in tight jeans. ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. Great article Elsa, I’m so glad you brought this back up(I wasn’t here two years ago).

    I get this a lot from men. Women are just plain competitive with me and I’m trying to figure out why. I’m not sure if it’s more my 1st house mars conjunct the asc & mercury, as I have no planets in my 8th house or in Scorpio. I do have pluto aspecting every planet in my chart expect saturn & uranus, maybe that’s where it comes from? My gut says mars is the reason for the reaction from women and pluto is the reaction from the men? I don’t know, will have to look into this more.

    As for the story(s), I am grateful that you are open enough to share them and help us all learn, plus I just love them, you are wonderfully entertaining to me(I mean that in the best way!)

  12. Love this video. I’m constantly attracted and repelled. Trying to grow comfy with it. 8th house Venus, Venus Pluto.
    Thanks for great videos, Elsa!
