Prepare to feel the spectrum of “ghost” emotions: jealousy, insecurity, paranoia, revenge. Scorpio is ruled by the hawkish Mars and the mighty Pluto, which can lead to issues of dominance and control, or emotional manipulation.
In Artisit’s Manner, author Julia Cameron suggests looking at envy as a “map” that, when viewed objectively, can indicate your true desires.

Once you’ve let yourself go with that squeaky wheel, you might find that this person doesn’t bother you as much. Or, if they interrupt your work, sleep, or personal time, find the courage to ask them to respect your space.
