Gift Giving through the Zodiac - Gifts for little people

This series of articles will feature ideas for zodiac inspired handmade gifts from members of the Trans-Canada Etsy Team. Each new zodiac month will begin with an introduction to the qualities associated with the present astrology sun sign. Throughout the rest of the month I will feature items which have those qualities and/or would be a suitable gift idea for people of that sign.

Scorpio - The Scorpion
24 October - 22 November
Archetypes -
Shaman, Investigator, Hypnotist, Phoenix

Children with prominent Scorpio qualities in their charts are often very intense with strong feelings and perceptions. When the sensitive Scorpio child is troubled they may become very quiet and bottle up their emotions, or they may strike out with typical Scorpio vengeance. Encourage them to talk. This will help them access their natural ability for understanding human nature. They may frequently have the need to burn up emotional as well as physical energy through an activity which can hold their interest. This could be a sport, hobby or something like dance or martial arts.

Lazy Liquorice Bed Bug is a soft and squishable plushie made by Plushoff and he likes to hear stories, secrets and dreams. My son has a a very strong dose of Scorpio in his chart and when he was a little boy this bedbug would have been a hit. Like many Scorpio children he surprised the adults in his life by choosing black over many other colours and he loved insects, creatures under the rulership of Scorpio. The little white heart reminds children that goodness and light is within us all.

This adorable grey and red sock cat by Puncezilla would make another wonderful gift idea for children. This soft and cuddly kitty would be a comforting 'friend' for times when feelings have been hurt in those sensitive Scorpio children. Red is another colour associated with this sign.

Don't let these skulls fool you! This gorgeous cotton and soft chenille signature blanket will keep your baby warm and cozy. As Ocbaby says "That baby came out howling and hasn't stopped since! For the baby who really knows how to rock....definitely not for the timid!" Scorpios are definitely not known for being timid and they are one of the hardest 'fighters' in the Zodiac. They also have a love for the mysterious, the hidden and the supernatural.
