Meenaxi- Movie Review

"The heroine of the movie is of course, Meenaxi, played beautifully by the talented, ravishing and gorgeous actress Tabu. I must admit, that I never found her more beautiful in any of her earlier films than in this one."

"The other lead in the movie is played by the talented actor, Kunal Kapoor. Kunal is another mystery man for the author. "

I watched this movie two weeks ago and I downloaded it from a website. Since, then I have been watching it almost regularly whenever I get time. I don't know if I am addicted to this movie. But it seems that I have got addicted to it. Well, "Meenaxi" is pronounced actually as "Meenakshi". This movie has been directed by famous painter M.F. Hussain and it seems that he did an excellent job post his first flop "Gajagamini". Although, Meenaxi, too, bombed at the box office; it is an excellent film for any movie lover. If you wish to discover, the real Bollywood then Meenaxi is a must watch. Most bollywood lovers have not even taken a single glance at the movie considering the reputation of the maker. Mr. Hussain may have had a great reputation as a painter but his first flop got him a tag of a bad filmmaker. 

Unfortunately, most review writers did not bother to take a fair and square look at the movie. This made a wonderful creation get hidden in the darkness forever. But for me, the movie delivered the most colorful experience. Apart from the regular Bollywood masala movies, candy-floss movies and recent irritating romantic-comedies – Meenaxi offers a fresh thought wrapped in a fragrance of mystery, romance, reality and beauty.


The heroine of the movie is of course, Meenaxi, played beautifully by the talented, ravishing and gorgeous actress Tabu. I must admit, that I never found her more beautiful in any of her earlier films than in this one. Tabu is at her best as she portrays the mystery woman who has charmed the author to death.

Nawab the second lead played by veteran actor Raghuveer Yadav is an author who is completely mesmerized by the beauty and essence of “Meenaxi”. Raghuveer Yadav comes across as the obvious choice for playing “Nawab”. His acting is obvious and effortless. He clearly conveys the confused, hypnotized, clumsy author who thinks about nothing other than his work.  As the story unfolds, we learn that Nawab is an absent-minded author who has been suffering from the writer’s block from the past five years.

The other lead in the movie is played by the handsome actor, Kunal Kapoor. Kunal is another mystery man for the author. A person whom he has met in life but has not had a clearly conversation with; Nawab imagines meeting him in person and discovers the real man who resides inside a rustic, arrogant, spoilt and non-serious motor mechanic as the movie progresses. Kunal kapoor plays two characters in the movie namely Kunal, the motor mechanic and Kameshwar Mathur, a thoughtful poet from Hyderabad who falls in love with the two characters played by Tabu; Meenaxi from Jaisalmer and Maria from Prague.  Kunal’s acting is remarkable as he effortlessly essays the rusty mechanic and the calm poet. He looks innocent and perfect for his characters. His acting for a debutant is far more polished. He successfully pulls sympathy for both his diametrically opposed characters. Kunal has got Arabic looks that make him look apt for the characters; secondly, his ease at performing makes him a site worth watching. Except for his dancing skills, Kunal Kapoor is an asset for Bollywood. 

Nadira Babbar plays aunt of the author and Kameshwar Mathur. She is cute, funny and authoritative. She essays a typical rich aunt who is kind and loving at the same time has authority in her mannerisms. 

The Plot:

“Meenaxi” is the name of the woman who resides in the mind of the famous author Nawab. Nawab is great at observing people. He has the name, “Meenaxi” on his mind as his sister’s friend happens to have it. This mystery woman is a face, situated in his mind. Her fragrance too, has made it’s place in the mind of the author. Meenaxi is a woman who has completely fascinated the author and he has her all over his mind.  She has become his point of reference. Having met her only for a short instance, Nawab consults her every time he gets stuck while understanding her character. Nawab seems to register everyone who he has met even for a short instance in his life; like a true author, all those people and things take shape in his story.

Nawab meets Meenaxi at his sister’s wedding and next day she comes at his residence. She asks him to write her story and promises that she will not interfere in his work.  Nawab meets a rowdy motor mechanic when he goes to repair his car. Nawab discovers that this rowdy motor mechanic loves to sing but has suppressed his passion and hence, is frustrated.  He decides to make him a hero of his story.

Nawab tells Meenaxi that in his story she is a princess from Jaisalmer who falls in love with a poet from Hyderabad. Meenaxi from Jaisalmer is a strong beautiful woman who trusts her intuition for better judgment. She is working for making people aware about the water problem in Jaisalmer. She has long been alone, her only companion being her jeep. Unknowingly she longs for a companion or a partner which she finds in the nephew of her uncle’s friend. Kameshwar Mathur, has come from Hyderabad to reside with his aunt and uncle. He belongs to a decent family and is a professional poet. Kameshwar is an extremely polite, well-mannered boy who follows his heart to make choices. He easily falls in love with the mysteriously beautiful princess.  The lonely girl decides to go against the wish of  her uncle and marry the young poet. At that time, the hyderabadi Meenaxi wakes up the author and burns the pages of the story. However, in reality due to the writer’s block and uncertainty of understanding the characters of both the girl and the boy; the story ends without an end. 

The author starts to rediscover his characters and meets the motor mechanic again after six months. He advises him to become a singer. The young mechanic pours his heart in front of the author yet not telling him his name. After the author leaves, the young man goes through a transformation when he sees himself in the brothel with a bottle of liquor in his hand.

The author, now, confident about the character of his hero writes another story putting his heroine in the city of Prague. Maria works as a waitress on a ship and is a full-time actress in a theatre. She too is lonely but more expressive than the Meenaxi from Jaisalmer. This character is much closer to the girl from Hyderabad.  Now, the author feels that he has come very close to knowing his heroine. He makes her meet her hero, Kameshwar Mathur. They both fall in love. Eventually, they conquer the heights of love. Just like Meenaxi from Jaisalmer, Maria is an orphan whose companion is her bicycle on which she doesn’t ride. She is also an independent woman but more free spirited than her previous avatar.  After Maria has loved and is loved, the writer stops his pen.

The character of Meenaxi is now beyond his reach and will not walk on his given line. She comes out of the book leaving the author gasping for breath. On the other hand, the author’s hero has decided to walk the path of the author’s choice. The motor mechanic has now decided to become a singer and lead a decent life. His character is completed and so he reveals his name to be “Kunal”. While the author still gasping for breath now succumbs to death with Meenaxi sitting besides his head. The next day the author’s sister accompanied by his aunt comes to visit him.  They find the author dead. In some seconds, he comes back to life and finds himself at his sister’s wedding following a lady in a white sharara (a traditional outfit). She turns back and to his surprise it is not “Meenaxi” as he had presumed. For an instance, Nawab had imagined everything from meeting her, talking with her and even writing her story. It was all in his mind while he was actually still standing at his sister’s wedding.

Nawabs sister comes near her brother to have talk, just when, he sees a woman wearing a white sharara (a traditional outfit). Nawab follows her and she turns back. Nawab is awestruck. Once again, he asks this woman her name and she replies, “Meenaxi”. Thus, the process of discovery begins once again.


The movie is a must watch especially for those who love to read and write. The movie is also for those who love bright colours, romance and everything that is beautiful in this world. Meenaxi takes us away from the gloominess of the everyday world while still highlighting the beauty of our everyday life. The tale revolves around three cities; Hyderabad, Jaisalmer and Prague. I found Jaisalmer the most beautiful followed by Hyderabad. Cinematography and art direction of the movie is beyond excellence. The movie captures minute details of everyday life adding beauty, humour and romance to the story.  Watch it, you will not regret it!!

26/11: Have We Learnt Our Lesson? May be Not!

Today, two years have passed post 26/11 and we are where we were two years back. It is painful and it is frustrating that the biggest terror attacks did not teach us anything. Our chief minister forgot that the national anthem was playing and  that he was supposed to stand till it got over. 

Two years back after the massacre ended; Vilasrao Deshmukh had gone to visit the Taj officially along with star son Riteish and director Ram Gopal Varma. This had cost him his post but Prithviraj Chavan has already replaced Adarsh Scam fame Ashok Chavan.

So, with whom will the Congress replace Prithviraj Chavan? They are suffering from the lack of clean men, therefore, are in a big fix.  Two years back Pakistan was not accepting the hand of their pet Cobras namely: 1) the ISI and 2) LeT  in this gruesome massacre despite of repeated pleas from our country; Two years later they have still not accepted it.

Two years back there was no security in the public places, two years later the situation has not changed for better. Two years back Ajmal Kasab, the man who killed innocent civilians and three brave cops by committing a cowardly act was alive; he is still alive and safe in the prison. The only thing that changed after 26/11/2008 was that the blaze of anger extinguished into silence once again. Silence; which a man who goes to work everyday maintains because silence doesn't need time. Time, is something that nobody in this country has; especially those living in the urban part. Those having the power are well-versed with it and so they see no reason to take action. 

Even though we claim to be united, we are still fragmented. Biases exist in class, creed, community, caste, designations, religions and generations. Therefore, it is easy for the politically correct politicians to divide us without causing an evident rift. Today, I wait in silence and painful grief to think that one day a new sunrise will bring the sunshine of security, happiness and health to my ailing motherland. At that time, her pain will heal and she will smile for once and forever!

If we save the tigers, we'll save the planet

By Leonardo DiCaprio and Carter S. Roberts

Tigers have long provoked awe in the human imagination, becoming symbols of untamed nature whose "fearful symmetry," in the words of William Blake, has inspired everything from art to advertising. In the wild, however, tigers are on the verge of disappearing.

The PISCES Woman By Linda Goodman - 2

First of all, she's subtle. Ask Nicky Hilton, Michael Wilding, Eddie Fisher and Richard Burton-each of whom married a Pisces. As a matter of fact, the same Pisces. She is not only subtle, she's sometimes a bit deceptive when she practices her art of wrapping you around her emerald ear rings.

Now, you may know a Neptune lady who wears a ging ham apron and a shy smile, and who is the epitome of the devoted wife, homemaker and tender mother. You're think ing that she's neither subtle nor deceptive. Forgive my di rectness, but you are wrong. As for that Pisces lady you think is different, I know her, too, or one just like her.

She's a widow who lives in the Bronx, and her name is Pauline. She also wears a gingham apron and a shy smile -the whole setup. How can such a Fannie Farmer image be subtle or deceptive? I'll tell you. First of all, she wraps everyone around her apron strings. (She doesn't have any emerald earrings. Next year, maybe.) She's a short woman who has managed to stand up to the loss of a dear child, heartbreak, boredom, tragedy, fear, poverty, and even the confusion of sudden, very brief riches. She's coped with little boys' bruised knees, braces, lost galoshes; a husband's sloppy Sunday cook-ins in her neat kitchen-and the big gest mixture of in-laws-all speaking eight languages at once-you ever saw outside the United Nations. She has faced all this mishmash of fate like Rocky Graziano. 

That's gentle? That's delicate? To this very moment, her two sons think of her as a charming, girlish, helpless, fluttery and soft little creature, who needs to be protected, and who can't quite understand how the lock works on the front door.

She's delightfully vague and dreamy. She doesn't know a thing about economics, but she manages to dress as though she was turned out by Sophie of Saks, cook frequent seven-course dinners for assorted grandchildren, pay the rent on time, and send exquisite gifts on holidays and birthdays- all on a monthly income about the size of one of Jack Benny's tips. She has the open love and affection of two daughters-in-law, and an incongruous group made up of the librarian, the super, the owner of the comer delly, the fruit man, half a dozen stray cats and children, the butcher, the newsboy, and would you believe it, even the landlord. She may have one enemy. The man she turned down before she married her husband. He probably joined the Foreign Legion in disappointment, and now I doubt if she even re members his name. Heartless females, these Pisces women. Subtle and deceptive. (But don't try to tell their neighbors that.)

Like the March winds, your Pisces girl will have many a mood. She's terribly sentimental, and when her feelings are wounded she can cry buckets. She'll look at you so re proachfully you'll feel as if you'd just shot a small rabbit. Pisces females sometimes get the idea they're hopelessly unequipped for the fierce battles and driving ambition re quired to survive. Then deep depression sets in. At these times you'll have to tell her she's admired for her deep, mysterious wisdom and her blessed understanding by every single human she has ever graced with her friendship. It's usually the gospel truth. The hardest lesson she has to learn is to overcome her timidity and her doubts. If the fears go deep, she'll shut herself off from others, then wonder why she's lonely. She's often afraid of imposing, pushing too hard, taking advantage, when such thoughts are in no one's head but hers.

Now and then a Pisces girl will cover her shyness and vulnerability with wisecracks, a sophisticated veneer and a frigid independent personality, but it's merely a cloak of protection, worn to hide her uncertainty from the prying eyes of rough people who would bruise her genfle heart if she exposed it. I know one who pours out her real soul by writing lovely song lyrics with a secret message woven in the shades of her soft, very private dreams. When she's not writing, she's the picture of the brittle, callous, career woman she wants people to see. 

Yet, even this type of Pisces is unable to fight her Sun sign. With all her make-believe independence she waits on the curb and lets the man whistle for the cab. There are some things one just doesn't do, as far as Neptune women are concerned; not acting like a lady in public is one of them. She fools a lot of men who could quiet her inner fears and make her take back her frequent claim of, "Who needs a husband? They only mess up your life." Imagine a statement like that from a Piscean, who needs to belong to someone more than she needs to sleep, eat or breathe.

A Pisces girl will give all of her heart to her children, except for the large chunk she saves for you. She'll love them all, but the ones who are uglier, weaker, smaller or sicker may have a slight edge with her. Only a Pisces movie star would pass up the little dimpled darlings and adopt a tiny, crippled tot with frightened eyes. Female fish are the greatest women in the world for understanding the shyness of small boys and the growing pains of awkward adolescent girls. 

A Piscean mother spins a thousand wispy, cobweb dreams over each bassinet. She'll sacrifice anything so her children can have what she was denied as a child. She may be too permissive. Administering discipline is difficult for her, and she must realize that a lack of firmness is often as bad as severe neglect. In a way, it is neglect, of building the small characters in her care, who need firm guidance to leam to swim alone. If she's guilty of too much softness, explain it to her kindly. She'll comprehend without bitter ness, and begin to give the hairbrush a workout. Still many Neptune mothers manage a happy medium between dis cipline and kindness, and their offspring do them credit.
A Pisces woman will gladly let you cam the bacon and cggplant. She'll probably prefer not to enter the brutal com petition of the commercial world, unless you desperately need her to. She had enough of that (if she's a typical Neptune girl) when she worked for that big, confusing company while she was waiting for you to rescue her. Some, not all, but some Pisces women are a wee little bit extrav agant. She may need some help figuring out why the bank's balance doesn't reconcile with her stubs, written in Sanskrit. Still, when an emergency forces her to adapt her champagne taste to a skim milk pocketbook, she'll man age.
She listens to the ocean, and it tells her things. 

In the> midst of the city, she still hears the waves of Neptune whispering to her Pisces heart more, perhaps, than she wants to know. Don't forget her birthday or your anni versary or the day you proposed. She won't. I'll always remember the Pisces friend I went to school with in West Virginia. She was tiny, with long, dark hair and those strange Neptune lights in her greenish brown eyes. She mar ried (among several other men) a big football star; it was a totally unexpected elopement. I remember when she asked him why he proposed. She was curious. "Well," he told her, "it was the funniest thing, Shorty. I didn't have the slightest idea of proposing that day. 

We were in the park, near the pool. The chicks who were lying around getting a tan had wet, stringy hair from swimming, and they looked all hot and sweaty on the benches. You were sitting there under that tree in a white lace dress, and you looked so cool and different from the others. You looked like-well, I guess you sorta looked like a girl." That's the subtle secret of the Pisces woman. Whether she follows Neptune's call as a dedicated nun in a convent or as a sultry songstress in a noisy nightclub-she's a girl. All girl. One hundred per cent.

The PISCES Woman By Linda Goodman - 1

'Well, what are you?" said the Pigeon. "I can see you're
trying to invent something!" "I-I'm a little girl," said Alice, rather doubtfully.

She found herself at last in a beautiful garden, among the bright flower-beds and the cool fountains.

The line forms to the right. And please don't crowd. There may not be enough Pisces women for every man, but that's no reason to be unruly. You'll have to take your turn, and hope for the best.
Even without astrology, rumors have spread about the charms of a Pisces female. She has her negative points, to be sure, but at first glance she's every man's grade school valentine, with maybe just a touch of a Playboy bunny to add some pepper. We might as well admit that the modern, emancipated woman, with her cast-iron image, has made the Pisces girl's value shoot even higher. With all that free dom from the feminine mystique clouding the air over lover's lane, the demure, pretty, helpless Neptune creature has to beat off the men with big sticks.

It's hardly surprising that she's at a premium. The Neptune female seldom tries to overshadow her man, mar ried or single. She hasn't the slightest hidden, neurotic desire to dominate him in any way. He can pull out her chair, put on her coat, whistle for the taxi, light her cigarette and talk about how wonderful he is to his heart's content. All she wants is that he should protect her and care for her. She's happily content to lean on his big broad shoulder and let him know, with wide-eyed wonder, how strong he is, and how much she needs him in this scary world. Just think of all those wolves out there, waiting to devour Red Riding Hoods. It's enough to make a girl get out her smelling salts. Even if she isn't quite as Victorian as all that (though plenty of girl fish are), she'll be a charm ing listener to all his troubles, and what is referred to as a good egg through every crisis.

A Pisces woman thinks her mate, lover, boy friend, brother, father-in fact, any man-can lick the whole world with one hand tied behind his back, and it takes a surprisingly small amount of her touching faith to con vince them of the same thing, men being the way they are. And you wonder why she's so popular? The Pisces girl is a cozy, calm haven of tranquility for her proud male, far from the noise of the frame and the ticker tape machines. The lights in her fish pond are soft and dim. They soothe tired eyes which have been blasted by neon and all those silly little figures at the stock market she couldn't understand to save her life. (Though if it would really save her life, she would sharpen her pencil.)

In the winter she wears fluffy angora mittens. In the Spring she wears dainty, full skirts. Summers will find her in a brief bikini. In the fall she'll look adorable sitting be­side you at football games, with her hands in your pockets to keep them warm, and asking you the score. She is eter nally feminine in all seasons. At the risk of making an un derstatement, men are drawn to her like bumblebees to a honey pot.

A short conversation with her, and a man instantly re laxes. He pictures a glowing, crackling fire on a chilly night, or he sees himself in a hammock on a balmy spring day, with no one to nag him. She makes it clear that she'll never blame him for any problems in his career or any ac cidental mistakes. It's always someone else's fault. Not her man's. Shell never press him to get ahead faster. His own pace is perfect with her. 

Need I explain why the female fish makes the most dangerous other woman of all the Sun signs? Flash! Maritime warning: After marriage she may nudge a little. To be truthful, she may nudge a lot. In a way, it serves you right for letting yourself be so blinded by her charms. Lots of times she'll even be bitterly sarcastic, but every woman has to have some flaws, and the Pisces girl will be gentle far more often than she's quarrelsome. She has to be goaded by extreme cruelty or laziness in a mate to be a shrew-and who's to say a cruel or lazy hus band doesn't deserve it? Not me. I'm with her.

Besides, her delectable femininity covers any minor defi ciencies, and most of the time the typical Neptune girl is soft, dreamy and womanly. Since the fish swims in both directions at once, she adapts beautifully and quietly to conflicting situations that would turn other women into nervous Nellies. Of course, now and then, some cranky words and irritable chatter may bubble up from her nor mally placid stream of thought. Occasionally a sensitive Neptune female who has suffered harsh treatment at an early age will allow bitterness to break the two symbolic fish of her sign apart-and this can be very sad. She be comes a lonely, miserable Piscean, always swimming furi ously, and meeting herself everywhere she dives down to escape-never realizing that the turning inward of her end less love and sympathy toward herself is the real poison. Drugs and drink and false illusions hide the truth from her and blind her to the rocks in the river that might destroy her. But the average Neputune girl keeps both symbolic fish joined firmly together in smooth action, gliding softly first back, then a little forward, so you're never quite sure exactly which way she's headed. Pisces is said to be a deep, mysterious sea, into which all rivers flow. You'll have a better chance of catching her if you know some of her elusive secrets. What makes her swim?

The SCORPIO Man by Linda Goodman

And her eyes immediately met those
of a large, blue caterpillar
that was sitting on the top with its arms folded, quietly
smoking a long hookah . . .
The caterpillar and Alice
looked at each other in silence,

If you're in love with a Scorpio male and the word passion frightens you, put on your track shoes and run as if King Kong were pursuing you. He is.

I'm not speaking of romantic passion alone, though that may be at the head of the list. I also refer to pas sionate intensity about politics, work, friendship, religion, food, relatives, children, clothing, life, death and any other categories you can think up. A Scorpio man is not exactly what your psyche needs if you're repelled by emotional excess. Don't look back. Just run.

You'll think I've taken leave of my senses if you've just met that particular Pluto person. He's so calm and steady. How could anyone with such obvious self-control be passionate, let alone dangerously so? How indeed. Be cause he's only bluffing with the surface cool. Inside, his passions are as red hot as that stove you burned your hand on when you were three or four years old and getting into things out of your reach. This man may also be out of reach. He's sizzling underneath his deceptively controlled manner. Don't touch. You know perfectly well how long it takes for bums to heal. Remember? Your hand was stinging for weeks after that episode with the stove when you were in your Buster Browns. 

After this experience, your heart will burn for months, maybe years, and first aid kits will do little good. Grandma's favorite saying, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," applies to both stove burns and Scorpio singes, so play it safe. Make sure you know where you're going and with whom.
If your Sun sign gives you an asbestos, fireproof nature, go ahead and play with explosives. You may be able to keep the flames under control and have yourself a powerful fire to warm your heart for a lifetime. Perhaps you're pas sionate about things yourself. 

Fine. Then it's simply a mat ter of degree of heat. If your passion has an automatic thermostat, so it can be turned down to cool when his reads hot, you're safe. Let's pretend you are. The girls who are in danger should be in the next state by now, if they ran fast enough. They'll thank me someday after they've married a nice, safe Libran or Cancerian.

As for you women who have analyzed yourselves as safe in a Pluto relationship, let's see if we can find what's hidden behind those hypnotic, piercing Scorpio eyes. It's pretty certain he hasn't made a neutral impression on you. He's either got you thinking he's boyish and sweet, or that he's wicked and passionate. (There goes that word again.) The trouble is, he's neither. Or maybe I should say he's both. Well, this isn't getting us anywhere. Let's start all over again.

In a word, this man is invincible. Just behind his frosty reserve is a huge pot of boiling steam that bubbles and seethes continually. If you're lucky, he'll keep the lid on. tight for a lifetime, but a deep injury can blow it right off with a brilliant explosion. It's kind of fascinating to watch. if you're not in its direct line of destruction. Step aside, if you feel it coming. And don't do anything to cause it yourself.
Hell bewilder you with his twin Scorpio traits of passion and reason. He's master of both: intellect and emotions rule him equally. Scorpio is more than intelligent. If he's a highly evolved specimen, he's also deeply philosophical, concerned with mysteries of existence, and he'll come close to knowing the answers.
There are Scorpios who can live a spartan existence in a bare room, denying themselves every comfort for some obscure, aesthetic reason, but the true nature of the sign is sensual. 

Normally, Scorpio will surround himself with luxury. He'll lean toward excesses in food, drugs, drink, and yes-in love. Most assuredly in love. He's geared for it, with confidence. Romance will never frighten him, puz zle him, or catch him unaware. It's been on his mind ever since he rode his first bicycle. Maybe even his first tricycle. Of course, you could conceivably know a Scorpio who is so absolutely innocent-looking, with such disarming, youthful charm and lack of obvious seductive mannerisms, he's convinced you that passion is over-rated in Pluto males. He may even have freckles, and a whole drawer full of Boy Scout merit badges. But ask his wife. Try some­thing like, "Say, Bertha-or Rosalie-or Sheila-or what ever-is your husband, well, is he passionate?" She might summon enough dignity to tell you it's none of your busi ness, but your answer will most likely be hysterical laugh ter. 

Between her peals of mirth, she'll be remembering many days of his intense, passionate declarations about air pollution, housebreaking the dog, narcotics, long hair, birth control, and many nights of ... well, and many nights. This will be true even if her husband looks like Huckle­berry Finn, and doesn't even remotely resemble King Kong.

These men have an explosive temper that can strike a life-time wound. When the Scorpio lashes his deadly tail, the sting bites hard. He not only enjoys winning, he has to win. Something inside him dies when he loses, even in small ways; yet oddly enough, a Pluto man normally prac tices good sportsmanship. Like all his other emotions, dis­appointment never shows on those set features, and his reactions are rigidly controlled, including his romantic in tentions. If there's a good reason to avoid the relationship, hell bum inside while he's projecting a glacial calm out wardly. 

He's also capable of torturing a girl cruelly before he finally decides to grab her by the hair and drag her off to his jungle of honeysuckle vines. Naturally, there are some November fellows who will gently propose on bended knee. They'll behave very properly, with or without a chaperone, but don't be deceived. It's merely the Scorpio desire to keep dignity at all cost. Your reputation must be spotless. He won't stand for ridicule or cheapness, for all his erotic nature.

The SCORPIO Man by Linda Goodman - 2

Pluto people can have either a Sunday School teacher horror of sin, an attitude which produces intensely dedi cated evangelistic religious leaders, like Billy Graham, or they can be driven by curiosity to penetrate every dark corner of the human mystery. Sometimes, both attitudes are combined, resulting in the hypocrisy or self-delusion of an Elmer Gantry or a Reverend Davidson in Rain.

Every Scorpio is a law unto himself, and completely un concerned with what others think of him. He would like to be respected as a good, solid citizen, but if it interferes with any of his intense ideas or goals, then he couldn't care less, and those who gossip can just go to the place Pluto rules. None of his important decisions are hampered by the opinions of his friends, relatives, neighbors or enemies. I'm sorry to say, not even by you. Don't run away yet. Such beautiful self-containment and sureness of purpose can create a mighty attractive, free spirit who's not always fussing about what people think. Are honesty and courage and integrity such bad bargains? They may have lost a little of their sparkle in today's marketplace, but rub off the dust they've collected, and you can still get them appraised as genuine.

It's quite an experience to see the Scorpio man operate under adversity's black clouds. While others are mumbling and crumbling and grumbling, he is at his forceful, cou­rageous best. He seldom wallows in envy or self-pity, and he doesn't happen to think that life owes him a single farthing. You can just imagine how much time that saves. Instead of pouting in hurt anger when real troubles hit, he meets them head on. Conquer them? But of course.

That's what he was born to do.

One thing is a little frightening, and may require courage on your part. Scorpio loves mystery and there's not a single one that crosses his path he won't solve in detail. Since the eternal feminine mystery is any girl's most potent defense and offense, being stripped naked of your mystery can leave you feeling a little exposed. You'll scarcely have a secret left when he starts probing with those burning eyes and piercing questions.
He has high standards, and he won't choose his friends loosely. They'll have to measure up. This is a marvelous, rare kind of man who can share a jug of spirits and joke with rough humor among other men like a bawdy Eliza bethan; then tap that deep, inscrutable nature and turn into as gentle and tender a lover as Robert Browning. If there's anything more to ask for in a male animal, I don't know what it might be. Submissiveness and forgiveness? Detachment and caution? That's not fair. You knew he was short on those qualities back in the beginning.

He can be cruel sometimes, for his own, unfathomable reasons, and he may even exhibit a sadistic sense of wit by describing you as fat, dumpy, shrewish and square in front of friends. It's his private joke. Grin, if it kills you. You've been warned that Scorpio is compelled to conceal his motives, and this tendency isn't watered down in love. It may even be intensified. He's not about to display his true emotions in front of the world like a vulnerable, smitten schoolboy. Later, when you're alone, he'll tell you what he really thinks.

Marriage gives you a certain security, but if he pulls some of his Pluto tricks before the knot is tied, it may hurt, and you'll fail to get the humor. Still, don't even think about telling him that his harsh, self-sufficient who-needs-you? game makes you feel like jumping off a bridge. The Scorpio man will just tell you to go ahead and jump. It may take a while to adjust to his personality, but it will eventually toughen you up. If you're too soft, you'll bruise easily with a Scorpio. Never ask him what he thinks of a new dress or hair-do, unless you're prepared to be stung by the brutal truth. At least you'll know his positive state ments are honest, and not pasted together with the sticky glue of bored, insincere flattery. It's better to brave a good, healthy "You look awful," now and then, and be rewarded by an occasional "You're really beautiful, you know," than to swallow a constant diet of vague remarks like: "Yes, dear, it's lovely, sugar. Mmmmm-just fine, pigeon," from other men. Don't you think so? I do. But then, you're the one who has to live with it.

When it comes to jealousy, you'd better tread very, very carefully. He could bum and erupt like Mount Vesuvius in its heyday if you should accidentally wink near a man when a cinder gets in your eye, and if you ever give him a real reason to be suspicious, you're a very brave woman. But you'd better pack away your own jealous streak in the trunk, and then lock it. It will make no impression at all to drench him in angry tears or reproachful recriminations. No matter how he behaves, just say to yourself, "He loves me, and he will never discard real love for physical promiscuity. He's loyal to his deep ties, and he's only practicing his hypnotic art with those girls." Say it once before each meal, in the morning and at bedtime. Especially at bedtime. Women will find him irresistibly attractive, but keep remembering that if anyone is strong enough to resist such continual flattery and temptation, it's a Scorpio. Doesn't that make you feel better? It should. It's true.

He'll probably be a stern father. The children won't get away with an ounce of lazy or frivolous behavior. Hell teach them to respect property, but he'll also teach them to respect themselves. Youngsters will seldom get the chance to form any false values around a Scorpio papa. Although he'll love them with as much sincere passion as he puts into everything else he cares about, he won't Stand for any nonsense. He'll protect them when they need it, but they'll soon get the message that he expects them to stand alone. If they borrow money from him, he's liable to charge them interest on it, but it's for their own good. They may not realize that until he's gone some-day, but the lesson will eventually come home to them. Lots of children of Scorpio fathers resent his high-handed authority and tight discipline throughout childhood, and especially during the rebellious years, but as adults, they realize how lucky they were to have his firm guidance. From no other father can children learn so much truth about the way life really is. Often his offspring will find him gentle and funny; still there won't be any question about who is boss. He'll joke and laugh with them, and give them a sense of freedom, but the chalk line will be drawn, and they'll know not to cross it.

Even as they resent his attitude of command, the children will secretly admire his strength and try to imitate it, but occasionally it works the other way. A gentle child may feel bullied and cowed by Scorpio power, and retreat into neurotic intro version, fearing to risk his displeasure. Then you'll have to remind him that affection and tenderness sometimes get more results than his normal, unbending, autocratic manner. Just be sure you remind him tactfully and respectfully. A Scorpio man will never allow a woman to dictate to him. Never in a million years. He is the man and you are the woman, and if you have any doubts about it, you will be set straight so surely that you'll never need but one lesson. Yet, a Scorpio husband with a wife who truly understands him, will be tender, sympathetic, considerate, and repay her loyalty with the kind of love most women only read about and wish for.

It won't help much to try to resist this man, once the flame has been stirred and he's decided he wants you. Hell hypnotize you right out of all your good intentions. The magnetism of Scorpio men is almost tangible. You feel you can reach out and touch it. When you do, you may get a surprise. It will bum you only if you're over-sensitive and scorchable. If you're patient and strong, it will be like touching cool marble. Girls are out of their league with him. It takes a brave woman to fly with the eagle and not crash. He can soar higher than his symbolic bright star Antares in the constellation of Scorpio, then dip down suddenly to earthy expression. Hang on tightly, but keep your eyes open wide, and you'll see horizons with him the timid will never see. Look over there, just beyond the tall fir trees-did you ever in your whole life experience such a sunrise? Sunset will be just as grand.

How to win a Scorpio back after you have hurt him

Jeffrey Kishner

Scorpio men do not take kindly to being hurt. Scorpios hold on to resentments as tightly as a sphincter holds on to water. A fixed water sign, he is stubborn when it comes to emotions. Scorpios don’t trust easily in the first place, because they are all too aware of how one can be wounded in intimate relationships.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet that digs deep into experience, rooting out secrets and suppressed memories. Pluto is associated with manipulation and abuse of power. The Scorpio man is well-acquainted with the methods of torture used in the Underworld, and hence does not like to be on the receiving end of such barbaric techniques.

Even though the Scorpio man does not let go easily of his resentments, his zodiac sign is also the most transformative. Pluto rules the death-rebirth process. Scorpios hold tight, but they also periodically become devoured by the flames of regeneration.

As he rises from the ashes, your Scorpio man will have let go of his anger. However, there’s nothing you can do to initiate this process. Pluto works by his own mysterious schedule.
You cannot win back a Scorpio, but if you’re patient he might forgive you.
How long do you want to wait?
Comment below: Have you been reunited with a Scorpio after having hurt him?

What does a Scorpio man want in a woman?

Jeffery Kisner

Scorpio man seeks woman who can keep a secret, stay faithful. Must have high sex drive, and must never ever look at another man (or woman, for that matter). Extra points if you have a healthy respect for privacy. Willingness to merge assets a plus — bringing along debts may be a dealbreaker. You should have completed a full round of psychoanalysis first, and know your dark side well — I don’t want to be your therapist, and I’d rather you have thoroughly examined yourself before I dig up all your skeletons. Tolerance for witnessing emotional extremes and black moods is a necessity. If you want to be possessed, I’m your man.

Scorpio Woman - Did You Cheat Or Did She?

By Jacqui Lanier

Scorpio women enjoy challenge, debate and even argument. But you must be careful of what you say and do in this relationship. If you understand the Scorpio sign and its tendencies it can help you make it last. If she has agreed to give a relationship another try is a very good thing, because often when people under this sign end something, it is usually for good. But one of the worst things that can happen in the relationship is for the Scorpio is boredom. For some it is often worse than being cheated on.

Did you cheat or Does She think you did?
If you cheated, or she thought you were cheating, understand that she can be highly jealous. Scorpio is a sun sign which means they are possessive and jealous. Which can make the relationship very tense and the amount of trust truly suffer under certain circumstances. Your woman is prone to obsession than any other sign. She may become obsessed with the idea that you will cheat again. You need to really do whatever it takes to convince her otherwise. It will take a lot of time to get her back. It is crucial for you to know exactly what to do and say because Scorpio woman do not like to be wrong in relationships. If she thought you would never do something like that to her then it goes far beyond her being hurt.

Did She Cheat?

If a Scorpio woman has cheated on you but acknowledges her wrong doing, this is what you need to do. Try not to be to act jealous or possessive now. But it is all right for you to tell her how much she hurt you. Any time a Scorpio makes a mistake or is wrong about something, she will admit it if she sees clear evidence. So when she makes a mistake, give her time to realize it on her own. You should not keep pointing out her mistake. She will appreciate this more than you know. But choose your words very carefully because if you mistrust what she does now it can be very damaging. She may just decide the relationship is over, even if she wants to make things work.

How to attract a Scorpio Man

- Rachel Mork

Want to learn how to attract a Scorpio man? If you believe you'd be compatible with a Scorpio, you may want to read upon what appeals to men of this sign to make sure you're sending the right signals. According to astrological science, the zodiac explains a great deal about who a person is and what that person desires.

If a man is born between October 23rd and November 22nd, he is considered a Scorpio. This is his sun sign. Don't be confused if you read up on Scorpios and don't see any resemblance to the description; you may be fooled by the characteristics displayed to you, which are determined by the man's ascendant sign. A man's ascendant sign is the sign that was rising in the east of his birthplace at the moment of his birth. If want proper astrology readings, you'll need to calculate both the sun sign and ascendant sign according to exact birth dates, birth times and birthplaces. A man's ascendant sign will be the sign he shows to the world, but his sun sign will be the sign that determines his essence and his inner life. The sun sign determines his most basic and primal desires and needs.

Understanding the Scorpio Man

When a Scorpio man gives you that penetrating stare for which Scorpios are famous, you will probably want to dive into that pool of passion or run in the other direction. A Scorpio man is not for the faint-hearted woman; his mysterious nature will either draw you into the chase or frighten you away. Don Juan was a Scorpio; many ruthless lovers are also Scorpios. The stereotypical Scorpio man is driven, passionate and unattached. He has a reputation for being a loner who tears through relationships, but the Scorpio man can be won over by the right woman.

Deep Waters

Scorpio is a water sign, meaning Scorpios feel things very deeply. A typical Scorpio man is distrustful and cautious about relationships because he cares so very deeply that he scares himself, causing him to put up smokescreens. He will usually engage in superficial but passionate and sometimes even violent relationships to protect himself from that frighteningly deep connection of which he is capable. You'll need to be able to withstand the passionate yet heartless assaults that may first characterize the relationship, showing yourself to be a trustworthy, strong, secure woman who can handle his passion and offer him a place to rest safely. You'll need to meet his depth, but hold your own.

Cynical Seekers

Scorpios believe that most things in life are too good to be true. They are realists, looking for proof before they trust or let anyone in. In order to win over a Scorpio, you'll have to prove to him that you are what he seeks: someone good-hearted, honest and without hurtful weaknesses that will trap him or betray him. He will need to see you are strong yet kind in your strength, so that a Scorpio man will be able to let you in and trust you will not use his own weaknesses against him. If you can be the solid kind of rock a Scorpio requires, you may find yourself in a relationship of astonishing depth and excitement.
