Scorpio the Scorpion
24 October to 22 November
The Moon is: Full Moon
The Scorpion rose from the earth to attack Orion at Juno's command. It also caused the horses of the Sun to bolt when driven for a day by the boy Phaethon and Jove rebuked it with a thunderbolt.
Also known in some systems as the snake, a symbol of great power and wisdom both for good and evil.
Ruled by Pluto, the annihilator, and Mars, the aggressor, with a feminine (receptive) nature, Scorpio is more passive in its energy. A Fixed (resistant to change) sign, Scorpio governs determination and endurance.
It is a Water (sensitive and compassionate) sign and you, the Scorpio, are connected with the world of emotions, particularly the deeper primeval emotions of sexuality and survival.
More than any other sign, Scorpio deals with processes of fundamental transformation on all levels. This transformation can be on a high or low plane, depending on the motivation behind the change. However, as a rule, you do work to improve the status quo.
Scorpios possess power, will and intense emotional desires. Your life is likely to be a constant struggle to conquer desire through the creative use of the will. Since your sign is strongly related to the desire principle, and the sex drive, there is tremendous emotional force behind your romantic involvements. When out of proper control this can lead to possessiveness, jealousy and violence.
No sign can be as potent for good or evil as Scorpio as you act with all of your power and, therefore, it is imperative that you set out on the proper course from the start.
You never deal with life superficially, and whatever you become involved with is generally of serious consequence. Sometimes your desire to do everything perfectly makes you unable to delegate responsibility, so you overwork yourself, seeking perfection in all details.
The defender of justice, even in the face of death. You have tremendous staying power and will see any matter through to the bitter end, regardless of how much effort or sacrifice is required. You despise weakness in yourself and don't like to see it in others but you are often generous and compassionate and will extend yourself in order to help someone else. Scorpios expect, however, that the individual, once helped, will stand independently and continue to help themself.
Not the diplomat, since you believe in expressing your ideas and feelings with the undiluted truth. You would rather remain silent than give a watered down version of your true opinions and emotions.
Scorpios are highly secretive but your intuition is well developed and gives you the ability to penetrate the inner thoughts of others and draw out secret information from them. When spiritually developed, you derive immense power from your ability to tap the fundamental, creative, regenerative forces of nature. You aren't inclined to fear death because you have a mystical understanding of the cyclic nature of life.
In a battle you won't give an inch, or expect to given one. If someone takes up battle with you, they'd better be well fortified!
Your strong reasoning powers are tempered with imagination and intuition and these gifts, together with critical perception and analytical capacity can enable you to penetrate to profundities beyond the average.
You have a better change of becoming a genius than the native of any other sign but can sink into the extremes of depravity if you take the wrong path.
The intensity of your nature exaggerates your harmful tendencies into vices.
Scorpio is the symbol of sex and Scorpios are passionate lovers, the most sensually energetic of all the signs. For a Scorpio union is a sacrament.
You have an overriding urge is use your power to penetrate beyond yourself and to lose yourself sexually in your partner in an almost mystical ecstasy, a marriage of the spirit as well as the flesh.
Capable of the greatest heights of passion means that debauchery and perversion are always a danger and Scorpios can become sadistic monsters of sensuality and eroticism. Your feelings are so intense that even when your love life is at the highest and most idealistic, you are frequently protagonists in tragic, even violent, romances….."Star Crossed Lovers".
Brooding resentment, aggressive and sadistic brutality, total arrogance, morbid jealousy, extreme volatility of temperament are some of your vices.
Scorpio Body & Health
The typical Scorpion is robust and of strong build with powerful muscles, a dark complexion, eyes and hair. There will be a strong aura of personal mystique and magnetism. The eyes, in particular, will be deep and penetrating pools with a possible hint of the satanic.
A heavy forehead and eyebrows and a determined "bull-dog" chin.
Scorpio governs the pelvis, reproductive (sexual organs) and urinary system and its subjects are said to be prone to ailments of the liver and kidneys, stones and gravel in the bladder or genitals, and other genital ills such as priapism.
Abscesses, boils, carbuncles, fistulas, piles, ruptures and ulcers may also affect you.
Your strong constitution can usually overcome your problems, which are often of your own making - due to your clandestine activities!
Scorpio rules the sexual organs with all this implies. One of the most powerful signs, depending on the aspects, Scorpio regenerates and engenders.
The Scorpion nature is reserved and secretive. This can work against them as they 'bottle things up' and this retention can lead to emotional and mental stress.
Because Scorpio releases the tensions of life through sex, when deprived the pressure can become intolerable. Obviously, should ill-favoured aspects be manifest in the natal chart, disease and problems of the sexual organs becomes likely. In women, problems relating to the monthly cycle and womb can be prevalent.
All Scorpions give an expression of calm self control, contradicting the emotional power that hides beneath their surface.
