When people get angry and say things about you - really low insults.

Is it just me, but do you think they are really talking about themselves?

It happens a lot.

no. usually the insults they use are not applicable to them, though i dont think they are insults more that factually correct statements in my case.

It can appear quite convincing. But I suspect these people are self-centered and totally oblivious when they say it.

I think I know what you mean, but can you explain in a little more detail?

Simply - a person can call you racist for example - when really they are talking about themselves - but they are so lost they don't even know it.

Yeah, this is something I experience a lot. It's really frustrating.

In the end, I have to cut ties with people who do this to me.
There is no point in having any kind of relationship with someone who doesn't listen to you or want to know who you truly are, and instead arrogantly pushes their own stuff on to you.

As an aside, i've read that Scorpios are particularly useful for other people to project their own shadow on to. Perhaps that's it, Brat?

Whatever it is, it pisses me off.

Would that not be applicable to all starsigns?
It depends on each individual's chart and what's going on in it. It wouldn't surprise me if people with an opposing sign to your own might see something in you that they don't realise they have in themselves.
That doesn't have to be a bad thing.

The article I read explained how a sun in scorpio would ruled by pluto, which essentially shines a light (sun) on to the shadow (pluto). So essentially people may see their own shadow.. the stuff they are unconscious of. If that makes sense. x
