Is the negative connotation of sex to provide the desire? The pilgrims landing was at a time of uncertain population. Today we have a population explosion. In the sixties we had free love, now we have transsexual love. SCORPIO rules our sexual lizard brain desire/needs. The greatest mystery of the human condition is death and sex. The snake has represented the life and death balance throughout history. Mercury, the messenger's caduceus, two snakes entwined is the physicians symbol. In Tantric Yoga it is also the sexual kundalini energy. The spiral of power through the spinal cord.
