Here is the next image in the series I did last year for the Llewellyn Worldwide 2014 Astrology Calendar. :)

Scorpio: October 23 - November 21. Fixed Water sign. Colors: deep red, royal blue, black. Intensely emotional, curious, intuitive, passionate, possessive, powerful, determined. Frequently associated with sexuality, the desire to merge with another, and to find fulfillment/completion with a partner or “other half.” Worries about how to make their needs met by other people; wants to receive rather than give. Emotions are incredibly intense, but often hidden beneath the surface. Associated with deep waters filled with secrets, transformation, the Underworld, repressed or hidden emotions. Scorpios have the passion and determination to get whatever they want done. In my illustration, I have Scorpio standing in a pool of still water in a cenote, holding her partner possessively but revealing little of her emotions in her face. (One of their associated stones is selenite, so I put a bunch of selenite crystal formations in the cave because it’s pretty :B also I love that the AD let me get away with putting the Scorpio symbol on the dude’s lower back, haha.)

You can preorder the calendar if you like, or just check out the rest of Llewellyn Worldwide's offerings at www.llewellyn.com.

I love blue and black, I am emotional to but I hide them most of the time and I can be hurt pretty bad when my trust is proven wrong, I am extreemly loyal to my friends, I don't like giving up and I am a scorpio.
this is a treuly beautifull piece of art in my opinion I get the feeling it reflects me but the only part where it doesn't is with the dude, but still I love it and you are a great artist and I just simply love it. thanks for sharing this beautifull piece of art with us.
(sorry for the gramar and other mistakes I made, I try my best but english is not my first language)

I'm a Scorpio too. I can get mysterious and spiteful though. I tend to count on emotions rather than logic to make decisions and I go through a LOT of pain.

As a Scorpio, I try my hardest to defy set aspects of my personality, such as selfishness. It's hard, but leads to a path of self fulfillment and the ability to better one's self.

I'm a scorpio, and I do like to receive...if you know what I mean.

The art is amazing, but the description does not resonate with me at all. I like to give rather than to receive, and I never was, am or will be possessive ;p this is proof that the horoscope/zodiac is not meant for everyone, but for only those who believe in it :)

Do you still use your Facebook fan page? You haven't posted there in a while.
juliedillon's avatar
I'm sorry. X) I stopped using facebook in general, it just makes me uncomfortable and I don't like using it. I mostly put updates on my twitter, main website, or here on my dA page. I might go back to putting updates regularly on that facebook page, since it does seem like a lot of people have visited it, despite the lack of updates :/ 
asanteM's avatar
Well yeah...people love your spectacular art so why wouldn't they continue to visit the page to look for more? LOL

Just update your Facebook fanpage for the fans...filter out the other stuff that makes you nauseous. :)
juliedillon's avatar
But I put all the updates here and on my website, which are both more suited for displaying art. If people want to see new art, they can follow the sites that I update.

I don't like this at all. Scorpios will go it alone and revel in extreme conditions. They are most of all thoughtful and transformative. Someone who is easy to possess such as you've shown here, will not interest them very much. And they will tire of them. They want to possess free souls (who are strong and do not want to be and may never be possessed).
They might like dark places but not something waterlogged like you've depicted here. It needs to be cool and dark.
Since you've shown all the other starsigns as progressive individuals in some sense, I feel like you've been unfair to the Scorpio in showing such a petty depiction that is just raw and meaningless.
I'm a Scorpio. Can you tell

Depends on the Scorpio. Not every Scorpio is that way about love and sex; those factors heavily reside in the Scorpio's ascendant, venus, mars, and moon. If a Scorpio has a heavy influence of Cancer in them, for example, they may want to feel more secured in a partnership than necessarily be out to possess the strong and independent people around them. The most freedom-oriented, strong and independent signs (like Sagittarius and Aquarius) aren't always as attractive to Scorpios because those people may seem to disconnected for a Scorpio.

And it seems like the artist has put a lot of thought into the expression in the piece. The Scorpio isn't giving anything away even in a portrait that's meant to display the basics and desires of the sign. Although, the tail of her dress does seem to give something away- that although the Scorpio is keeping the man as a slave, she's also put a barrier between the onlooker and her captive, thus revealing that she can be very protective even of those she perceives herself as manipulated or using for her own benefit.

Also, though it is generally very dark, the centered light at the top of the piece may suggest that a Scorpio typically may not completely enclose themselves in darkness, but that the "real" them lies underneath the light surface of appearances. Well, that's one interpretation anyway.

I think it's a lovely piece! The more you stare at it, the more complex it becomes. It's very interesting!! c:
