The Signs and Suicide

" Clearly, I am SCORPTASTIC!!!!!!!!
Not- the signs OF suicide! hehe ahh aherm well ahhhhanyway-

I was curious about this particular topic because I read somewhere, along time ago, that Scorpios are the zodiac sign that is most likely to commit suicide. ::GASP:: Moi?!!!

I say pisces (though I'm open and could be persuaded otherwise) but I bet there are a lot of different opinions on this ahhhyeah twalk amongst yaselves.

Ascendant: Virgo Sun: Leo (11th house)
I say capricorn, or a strong saturn placement even

Seems to me that Pisceans would committ suicide because if their occassional escapism and pure craziness (judging by the way of my friend).

Scorpios would because the inner-self of a Scorpio is the most anomic of any zodiac sign - And obviously, as studies show, the suicide rate races up in times of anomie.

P.S. Im not saying all cappies are suicidal, It's just I've known some who can really sink into some deep depression.

And yea, maybe Caps too, because half the time it seems like they are fighting misery (like My Father).

Pisces, Scorpio, Capricorn.

E of the HS - good point about the anomie-suicide connection but I really wonder if this state of inner malaise is a "sign-specific" anomaly or if it transcends the signs, at least at times- I have known depression to take grip of (at some point in their lives) even the most carefree air signs and happyfire individuals. And so, suicide would therefore be a closer haunt, for anyone going through black times, than those who are happy.

Would a happy water have the equivalent suicide tendency as a deeply depressed air? I wish it were that simple- such equations are fun to ponder...

The self destructive nature of water signs, however, does lead me to believe that suicide rates would be up for us "drowny types."

Actually you might've taken what I said the wrong way.

"Would a happy water have the equivalent suicide tendency as a deeply depressed air? I wish it were that simple- such equations are fun to ponder..."

I have never believed that Astroogy is like that. Life is not that simple and it puzzles me that some do not feel this way because to me life guarantees us more complexity than that, and I love it that way.

Leo is usually talked about as the most joyous of the signs, but a depressed leo will take their life much faster than a scorpio or capricorn who are not in states of depression.

The reason why I know that Scorpios are the most apt to committ suicide is that Scorpios is the sign that has a lot to do with chaos and change. The rules of anomie in society say that with too much change and/or chaos, or just a mere lack of rules, regulations, and guidelines the suicide rate will be high. Emile Durkeim studied all this and I remember paying close attention when I learned about him.

Scorpios sometimes live too much of a mobilized life for their own good, and can sometimes break themselves just as quickly as they can make themselves. If any sign represents (in an exaggerated form) the bad side of passion, pain, and change - it's Scorpio. Which is why I say what I say not based neccessarily on opinion, but on what would seem normal.

Of course, you could be suicidal as any sign. Astrology is Nature, and it does not include Nurture, so Astrology could only ever be part of the 'equation'.

"... i always figured a [miserable/unhappy] scorp would rather take the rest of the world down with them (or as much as they can) rather than giving up that way..."

You are funny girl but I must be honest and say that I did think about it when I was a teenager, I got in a lot of trouble and I was so mad I thought about cutting my wrist but I did not do it. I guess I was going through some things back then but to think about doing it know is not an OPTION.

SL - I swear to god, I think we are living parallel lives or something..I did once slit my wrist when I was younger..Inflict pain on self to get back in touch with reality..I love pain..pain arouses I need help!!..haha..Nah..seriously it wasn't to kill was just release of anger..But they do say that Scorpios go through some emotional turmoil in the earlier stages of life..My ex boyfriend (first love of 2 years) stabbed himself in the arm (why is it always the arm! when we had to go our seperate ways..he said he can't imagine life without me and his aunty was going berserk on the phone, saying "I hope your happy with yourself young lady, do you know what this crazy boy has just done to himself"..b*tter..that was scary..So I guess done mine cos I owed him shouldn't really joke..but I find it funny..(I did my wrist about 3 months later during our seperation)

LMAO @ Sagitaurius..
I'd be more prone to murdering the one responsible for my misery rather than commiting suicide I think, the hate I'd feel towards them would poison me. Eventually it'd be like a self-destruct mechanism. Anyway, seems unlikely, but I do have a tendency to be reckless when I feel miserable somehow subconsciously hoping to die on some level maybe or just blowing off steam...? Maybe just outta anger. I used to drink n drive, flooring the gas pedal on the freeway, changing lanes, cutting infront of others at dangerously short distances, swerving. Drive like a maniac on the street, against traffic, taking red lights and stop signs. I've done it maybe a couple of times over stupid stuff really... which you come realize after the fact, so really comtemplating suicide would be an awful mistake. There's been cases where people were rescued from dying after they attempted against their own lives and they realized how lucky they now were to be alive.
Has anyone heard about how japanese teens comtemplating suicide will search for other teens trying to do the same thing so that they can go together? There's websites that give instructions on how to do it and chatrooms they go to to find one another I think. But I think that supposedly it's an honorable way of escaping failure in the culture.
