“She lights up the night and brings a new understanding to crisis situations. Her depth of perception and ability to be truly honest is apparent to all she encounters. Deep within her is the most intense power. However, her strength is surrounded with wounds and scars of the past. A battleground of emotion is running through her veins. She understands pain like no other.

Scorpio is the sign that is most in tune with people’s suffering. It understands the struggle of being trapped without light. Despite the darkness that surrounds it, a Scorpio will always finds a way to pick themself back up and start anew.

While many think of the Scorpion as the sign of Scorpio, the original symbol is actually the serpent. A serpent is a large snake and it’s been a powerful spiritual symbol for ages. The snake is symbolic of renewal and rebirth. It’s a creature that can shed its skin and regrow it—regeneration to the fullest.

Just like the snake, Scorpio sheds its skin at various points, because it subconsciously craves the renewal process. If you ask a Scorpio about their life, they might reveal that it’s categorized into distinct sections. Each chapter begins with them crawling through the muck and being at the bottom. However the chapter will always end with them finding their way back to the top again.
Scorpios have the capacity to succeed in anything because of their will power, patience, persistence and insight. Like a fallen angel, a Scorpio will always make its way out of the darkness and into the light. The power of renewal and rejuvenation are characteristics inherent to this dark sign.

No matter what the situation, a Scorpio will always find a way to rise back up again. They contain within them an unparalleled strength and emotionally commitment. The steady control of this fixed sign can wait for years. Trying to persuade someone who’s emotionally connected to something is difficult and likely impossible.

When a person’s emotions are part of the mix, it’s rather difficult to tear them away. When a Scorpio wants something, they literally jump in, heart and soul.

Being a water sign, along with Pisces and Cancer, it is most connected to the feeling side of life. A Scorpio is compassionate and caring to a tee. It relates to suffering and will sympathize with pain and loneliness. However, unlike Pisces and Cancer, it has a harsher side that will reveal itself if tested. It simply will not stand for weakness because Scorpio believes we all have the power to rise above it.

While most have a hard time seeing their way through the darkness, Scorpio thrives there. It dares to go where others simply can’t. This is the sign that craves going deep beneath the surface in order to discover the darkest secrets of the world.

When we encounter its true nature, we can get rid of the fear involved in sharing our dark side. A true blue Scorpio embraces that part of each of us and isn’t afraid to say it. They know the dirty little truth that so many try to hide. Instinctually they just accept that we all carry a dark side. To them, it’s a normal part of human nature. Trying to hide that from a Scorpio is impossible.

A Scorpio will always find a way to keep their secrets but once engaged—we won’t be able to keep ours. They’ll always find a way to try to probe it out—because hearing about it is rather comfortable to this mysterious sign.

Being superficial never works with them either. Seeing through the façade is rather easy for them. Trying to fool them is impossible. If we truly want to go deep within ourselves, find a Scorpio to help on the quest. They will help you finding answers to the darkest questions because that’s what attracts them most. Scorpio goes where no one else does because it simply needs to know.

For this reason, people with strong Scorpio in their personal astrology are often found in the health care field including counseling and mental therapy. They will always make the best psychologists. A famous example is Sigmund Freud who was a Scorpio rising.

When it comes to relationships, being involved with a Scorpio (no matter what the duration) will change the way we think about ourselves forever. The connection we’ll end up having with them makes us more self-aware. It also helps us to look at things more deeply.

Being the sign of intense desire, we might also feel twinges of their control, jealousy and possessiveness from time to time. Scorpio simply cannot help but to possess their lovers. As I said earlier, they are emotionally attached and committed beings. They truly have the strongest ability to understand the people they love at the deepest level.

In truth, Scorpio is an intensely lonely sign that craves an intimate connection. They can be quite mistrusting and discriminating because they see what others don’t. In the end, they’ll only allow a select few into their world.

Of all the signs, I believe that Scorpio is the one most intrigued by Astrology and other systems that help us tune into the undercurrents of why things are happening. Scorpio doesn’t skim the superficial surface of what’s going on. It doesn’t care about the method used to make discoveries either. It’s always going to go after the answers no matter what they reveal.

Scorpio will move into the limelight on October 23rd, 2015 and remain till November 22nd. A happy birthday is in order for everyone born under this sign. Each of them will be celebrating their birthday and going through their own renewal process with the beginning of their new year approaching.

The Sun’s entrance into the dark and mysterious sign will also begin bringing out the essence of Scorpio, deep within all of us. We all carry deep within us the power to tap into the Scorpio energy if we’re aware of it. The ability to lift out of the dark and regenerate is always there for the taking. Understanding this key Scorpio concept is something we can all benefit from—no matter what our personal signs.

Some thoughts on your birthday. And what you taught ME about Life and Rock and  Roll

We are at the Hilton in Baltimore, line-up was some insignificant band supporting BOC, I forget who.  But it wasn’t The  Who, that’s for sure.  We had no interest in BOC, we were very young   then and they weren’t pretty enough for the infamous Sherry and Shari. Who weren’t infamous then, but were certainly working on it as fast and as furiously as we could. But we were really just little kids.

We were there to see the Hottest , Baddest Boys on the Rock Scene, the Raucous Rodeo Clowns and Rock and Roll Gods of the late seventies, VAN HALEN, who were also on the bill.

Alex had been terrorizing the lobby all afternoon. His favorite trick was to ride up and down in the elevator with an aerosol spray paint can, and every time the doors would open he would take a lighter and shoot a flaming fireball at the unsuspecting women and children trying to board. It was hilarious at 3 am. Not so funny at 4 in the afternoon.

The Miami dolphins were staying in the same hotel. They were infuriated at all the babes in the place were paying ANY attention to them. So they had taken to riding those huge rolling luggage carts drunkenly up and down the corridors begging for favors! HA! We were rock chicks. They didn’t stand a chance.

At last call Diamond Dave had decided that all the ancient, slutty, worn out local groupies at the party were pretty much the best of the bunch and all there was to offer and there would be no Malibu Barbie’s arriving anytime in the near future to answer his Rock God prayers so I was the lucky winner of that nights” Win a date with Dave” lottery.

As we went upstairs in the elevator at last call one of the guys in BOC says to Dave

” Robbing the ice cream parlors, are we now?” (I looked about 12 until I was thirty)

I had lost the other Shari hours earlier, no idea how, when, where or why (until morning) Turns out she and Eddie had disappeared way earlier. Evidently he didn’t wait for last call, or divine intervention, when he saw what HE liked, he WENT for it

So after several fabulous hours with just a gigalo, he says to me

” Hey babe, I’m pretty hungry, how about you go get me a couple burgers?

And hands me a couple of hundred dollar bills. This seems A Bit excessive to me, burgers being about two bucks each, and I thought it a TAD inconsiderate to send me OUT ONTO THE STREETS OF THE SLUMS OF DOWNTOWN BALTIMORE AT FOUR AM, but I’m a game girl, and didn’t want to be rude and  I was trying to be nice

(Looking back I wonder…Hmmm, I wonder if MAYBE, he was TRYING to GET RID OF ME! Lol  ! )

Nawwww   I’m sure he was just hungry after all that excitement. Well, I wasn’t  that excited. Dave was the kind of guy who thought the privilege of being with him was reward enough in itself  so even at my tender age i was pretty unimpressed. But he was. And surprised.

As I said, I was a lot older than I looked.

BELIEVE IT OR Not, I actually was so young and stupid I went out on the deserted streets in the dark in the murder capital of the nation, found a Jack in the box open at four am and came back WITH two burgers , both for Dave ( mustard and onions, I took a guess) and didn’t get myself ANYTHING, after all,   it was HIS money. And I forgot to ask if that would be okay! LOL

So I come back twenty minutes later and knock on the door…

He’s like” WHAT? “and I’m like…” back with the burgers” …

and he’s like… “SERIOUSLY? “

But he must have been hungry (or in a complete state of shock I returned instead of robbing him and heading off on my merry way) because instead telling me to fuck off he let me in and I was there until lunch time the next day. I guess the burgers gave him a second wind. When it was time to go I tracked down Shari, or rather Dave did; he knew I wasn’t leaving without her.   And he was dying to have me gone.

But to his credit, he ddidn’t have the chutzpah to come out and say so.  Or the lack of common decency to turn someone so young and naïve out on the streets AGAIN at five am so he could be left alone to sleep in peace. Although, I would have been like “OHHHHHH, WHY didn’t you just SAY SO? Okay. “

And we found her in Eddie’s room.  Still wearing the stockings and stilettos she had been sporting the night before, and nothing else, although a bit worse for wear and tear!

(Hey Valerie Bertinelli, don’t look so INNOCENT! I KNOW STUFF ABOUT YOU)

We had no idea how we are going to get home but when Eddie offered Shari a hundred dollar bill for cab fare ( much classier than Dave trying to trick me into sneaking out on him in the middle of the night) I finally put all the pieces together and how we laughed about how shocked ( and pissed off ) he must have been when i knocked on the hotel room door with the food.

And I decided that was the first and last time I was going to go off with a pretty boy with no brains and no real interest in me except as the the only decent option left on an off night. From now on, it was only going to be people I really liked,  and who really liked me back and wanted more than one night and  not me to be the kind of girl who would take the money and run.

ANY WAY…Happy Sixty  first  Birthday  you rock and roll bad boy, From the Sherry Fairy

Anyway there’s a lot more to tell but that’s another story for another time….

When THE BOYS COME BACK!

559237_10151333271901563_1396842586_n

When I spent the night with Axl  I couldn’t  have cared  less about Rock and Roll. I didn’t even listen to the radio anymore so I had no clue who he or his band was. I was too busy. i was just married,had a 14 month old, my business to run, a day care center with 12 kids in a huge house, on two acres way out in the country. and I didn’t know it yet but I was 11 weeks pregnant .But Aerosmith was coming to town and I had felt trapped and overworked and wanted to see all my old friends in the band and crew, party hard, have some fun!

So my best friend and I headed out to the gig about 7pm. No need to arrive early. We knew everybody. There was no doubt we would breeze backstage.  I neither knew nor cared who the warm- band was.  I know, I KNOW!  Don’t just sit there with your mouth hanging open like you are trying to catch flies.  Looking back now it’s completely ridiculous!  That anyone on the planet had never heard of Guns N Roses Or Axl Rose then. But I didn’t have time for music. Well, truthfully I had chosen to ignore it since I got married. I didn’t want reminders of the  men who made music and the fun I was missing out on since I became  a responsible, respectable woman. So I paid no attention to rock and roll at all. But missing  Aerosmith was not an option, We went so far back with them it wasn’t hard for her to persuade me to go to the show with her. But, oh boy did I regret it! At first.

When we got there we realized the entire  hard rocking, wild partying  Aerosmith crew we knew and loved  were replaced and the band were straight out of rehab.  So there we stood,  in the freezing cold outside the backstage door. Or at least I did.  My ” best friend” grabbed a union guy who liked her blonde hair and  long legs and said he would walk her in so she threw me her car keys and  backpack with a change of clothes (a concert essential for the” walk of shame”home on the morning after ) and as always, without saying,  since we first met in 77 the plan was to be she would return in minutes with passes for both of us. Not a difficult job at all once you made it past the goon blocking the back door. But yet there I stood… and I stood… and I stood there, in the  dark winter night holding all her heavy crap until the  show was over . Without her even coming out even once to check on me or  keep me updated, much less desperately trying trying to get me in.

Had I been a lessor person I would have dumped her car keys down the nearest storm drain after the first two  hours, left her backpack outside the backstage door and headed for home.  Believe me, I considered it. But we had been through so much together over the years I just couldn’t bring myself to do it . So I was still standing there like an idiot five hours later when she finally emerged after the gig  had ended and the dressing rooms were empty of  bands and fans. I was furious as you can imagine. But hey, things happen right?  I was just happy the ordeal was over. So we  headed for the hotel for the ” great party she was taking me to make up for it.”  When we got there I told her “I’m not going anywhere until I get a drink.” I was shaking like a leaf I was still so mad and frozen.   I told her to wait in the lobby , I was just  running into the bar to get a cocktail and would be right back. When I emerged, about three mins later, she had vanished. I presume with whoever promised  her they had some drugs in their room. That was really all she cared about then. Clearly,judging from tonight , our friendship was last on her list of priorities  now.

As the crew and band started to straggle in , it was all Gn’RS guys. Aerosmith refused to stay in the same hotel with them the entire tour so the wouldn’t succumb to temptation . I asked, in fact practically begged  everyone that came in to help me find her, see what room she was in for me so I knew was going on. She was my only way home!  All I got was the brush off .  After the night I had so far I was becoming increasingly more hysterical! How dare she! Not only leave me out of the gig but prevent me from joining in on any fun afterwards either! None of the guys coming in had any interest in helping me. if one of their buddies had a long-legged blonde and a bunch of blow in his bedroom , the last thing they were going to do was ruin his fun.  I was practically in tears by 2 am when a stunningly  beautiful boy with long  copper hair  came in the hotel front door and immediately asked me if I was okay? I said, between sniffles on the verge of becoming sobs “No I certainly am not and explained the story. He listened patiently and then when i had finished he gave me a hug,  put me in a comfy lobby chair and snapped his fingers.

1779792_709804965719797_1337011051_n

Everyone in the place leaped to attention. He started issuing orders. “YOU… get her another drink, and keep them coming, Charge them to my room. All the rest of you… get on the phone and call every room until you find this bitch. Knock on every door if you have to”  I was  overcome by his kindness after everything I had been through so far and the way I was treated, not just the crew, but my “Best friend in the world.” Once everybody within a mile was following his orders as fast as their asses could  I got out of the chair   and went over to give him a big hug of gratitude. ” Thank you so much. You are the only person who has been a decent human being to me all night. I’m sorry but I didn’t catch your name?” He looked at me as if I had just landed from Mars because the rest of the world knew exactly who he was at a moments glance. He was well on he way to becoming a rock God/Legend. But I hadn’t a clue who he was. Remember I never read the rock news or bought albums or played the radio and I hadn’t not seen the gig that night so I hadn’t seen him sing or had even heard of him or his band . He was dumbstruck. He just said barely managed to say ” I’m Axl”  And then he went  back  to organizing and supervising the Bitchhunt. They never could find her, which i think bothered him more than it did me, because he wasn’t used to not getting whatever he wanted  I was just happy  now that at last someone cared at all  about me.  Eventually everyone wandered off to the party , which I clearly was not invited to, or their respective rooms  so I resigned myself to spending the night and maybe most of the day tomorrow sitting alone in the lobby crying and really regretting I hadn’t tossed her car keys in the sewer and  caught public transport home when I had the chance. And still not knowing I was almost three months pregnant with baby two in one year  I’m sure  that didn’t help the situation or my state of mind much.

Although Axl never said another word to me when everyone else was gone he was still there.  He took a seat at a huge grand piano 20 feet from me. that was placed in the lobby just  for show and began to play beautiful classical piano  and he stayed there until morning. He played from 3 am until 7 am when the hotel restaurant opened for breakfast and  when I had somewhere to go and something to do and public transport had opened again. I don’t think he really knew what to say to me.  So he just kept me company all night there in the empty lobby. Neither of us acknowledging each others presence or saying a word. He was so  incredibly passionate about  and completely absorbed in what he was doing I would never have dreamed of interrupting him. As he performed a private  concert for an audience of one. So i would not have to sit there alone all night. Perhaps it was for him too, Because he humbled instead of idolized, For a change

He  certainly wasn’t going to  say WTF?HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW WHO I AM? and explain it to me. because that what an arrogant asshole would do. And what he did for me no arrogant asshole would have considered.  I didn’t know why he was doing it and I certainly was not going to disturb him to ask. I guess what he did  that night was more important to him than the girls ,drugs and parties waiting upstairs.

Happy birthday Axl. No matter how you look, or what they say about you, I know how kind and beautiful you really are. With Love, The Sherry Fairy
