Scorpio Sign Dates - October 23 to November 22

Passionate. Loving. Brave. Scorpios are known to be the most attractive people of all the zodiac signs. They are bold, witty, and courageous, not afraid of what the world might think about them. Not just that! Scorpios never back down in a debate. Not a big fan of controversy themselves, they don’t mind getting indulged in one, if it is to prove they believe in a particular thing.

They believe in reality and nothing else. They especially hate people who are not authentic.

Scorpios are curious to make friends and want to know everything about them. Their curiosity level is unbelievably high, which is why they make good investigators.

Scorpio Traits & Overview

Living in a world that’s either black or white, the eighth sign of the zodiac chart, Scorpio, has a keen sense of intuition. They aren’t fooled easily. Although they may seem tough and intimidating from the outside; from the inside, they are soft, emotional, and genuine. They may not often show it, but they are very in tune with their feelings.

Their feelings drive them and make them who they are, but the mutable qualities sometimes make them feel vulnerable. This is why they never let their guards down. But once people get past the outer shell of pretense, Scorpios are the most loving and giving person you will ever meet in life.

Scorpio Symbolism & Myth

The symbol “Scorpion” has been mentioned a lot of times in ancient astrology. In Greek mythology, Scorpion was placed in heaven for winning the battle against the boastful Orion. There are several myths connected with Scorpion that attribute it to Orion, but the most famous one states that when Orion bragged he would kill all the animals on the planet Earth, Artemis, and her mother, Leto, decided to send a Scorpion to kill Orion.

Orion was killed by the Scorpion's sting. And as a reward, the Scorpio found a place in heaven.

Scorpio Element, Mode, & Season

Elements 2

Element - Water; Mode - Fixed; Season - Mid-Autumn

Scorpios know what they want, and go after it. Like other fixed signs, Scorpios direct their focus towards their professional life. They are extremely hardworking and dedicated.

Mid-Autumn

The Scorpio season begins in the middle of the fall season. It’s that time of the year when the leaves have lost their color and fall off the trees. Days are becoming shorter, and the nights longer.

Scorpio’s mysterious nature and curiosity about life after death is perfectly mirrored by the Autumn season.

Fixed Mode

Scorpio, like other fixed signs, depicts the typical traits of a stable life. They don’t complain about the adversities, rather take things into their own hands, and face them with grace.

What’s more, Scorpio’s obsessive tendencies for the things/people they love are akin to the other fixed signs.

Water Element

Water is the element of Scorpio. Water connects all forms of life and fertilizes the earth, which is why Scorpios are caring, giving, nurturing, and loving. Because of their incredible passion, Scorpios are often considered as a fire sign by many.

But the imaginative, psychic, and emotional powers of the zodiac sign Scorpio speak volumes about it being a water sign. What makes Scorpio different from fellow water signs is its venomous sting. It strikes when least expected.

Scorpio Planetary Rulership

Planetary

Pluto and Mars are co-rulers of the zodiac sign, Scorpio.

Pluto is the ruler of destruction. In Scorpios, it represents the sexual repression which then turns into unconscious depression and tries to set itself free. On the other hand, Mars represents the beginning of beginnings. Mars sets free our animal instincts and is responsible for the war. But since Mars is the night ruler of Scorpio, it expressed its anger in a much more tactical form.

Domicile of Mars

Mars in Scorpio natives are very ambitious in life. They love to challenge themselves and work hard to achieve the impossible. Unlike the other sign ruled by Mars, Scorpio isn’t outwardly aggressive, rather they are more patient, and wait to play their cards right.

They make tough opponents. And while they may keep their calm on the outside, no one knows what goes on inside.

Modern Ruler: Pluto

The sign of sex and war, Pluto, rules the underworld and the zodiac sign Scorpio. It is about destruction and rebirth. Pluto influences Scorpio in a unique way. The negative attributes arise as a result of an obsession for power and control.

Pluto in Scorpio natives are brilliantly perceptive and quick in reading the room. Their feelings about intimacy and sexuality are extreme.

Detriment of Venus

Venus is said to be in detriment in the Scorpio zodiac sign. Which is why Venus is not able to express itself fully. Those born with Venus in Scorpio are often secretive, and mysterious. Neither do they like confrontation, nor can they maintain peace of mind after it. Therefore, these individuals often find it difficult to trust people.

Fall Of The Moon

Moon is said to be in its fall in Scorpio. These natives are extremely emotional and nurturing. In this fixed water sign, the power of the Moon amplifies to another level, which is why these individuals are called “psychics of the world”. But, that’s not all. With such a sign placement, Scorpios may be attracted by their inner demons, and take on a dark path in life.

Scorpio House Rulership

house rulership

The house ruler is the planet ruling the sign located at the cusp of the respective house in the horoscope.

The Eighth House

Scorpio is assigned the eighth house in the birth chart. This is the house of death, endings, and reincarnations. Ruled by Pluto and Mars, Scorpio’s deeply seated knowledge about life and death aligns with the concerns of this house.

On one hand, these natives can face challenges situations easily, while on the other hand, they can give in to their fears, and completely change as a person in no time.

The Sixth House

Mars is said to find its joy in the sixth house of health and psychological issues. But that’s no joy for Scorpios. Challenges that come along with such a sign placement are not at all easy to handle.

These natives face emotional imbalances, hard luck, and poor health. Not just that! Sexual and emotional repression can lead them to a path of self-destruction.

Scorpio Characteristics

As the second water sign of the zodiac, Scorpios are always interested in what lies beneath the surface. They are passionate and powerful, but some people misunderstand the typical Scorpio traits for arrogance. Yet, that only stands true for people who don’t know them.

And while they may be secretive about things that matter to them the most, they lay all their cards on the table when they feel secure. If you get them right, it’s not hard to please a Scorpio.

Once they are able to trust others, they aren’t afraid to show their sensitive and empathetic nature. Scorpios can feel everyone’s pain. They are always available to be of great service to those in need.

Weaknesses

Known for their sheer tenacity, Scorpios can be very rigid and stubborn. It can be difficult for them to open their minds to newer ideologies. Bearing that tough outer shell, Scorpios cut their vulnerable side, seemingly cold and hard to the world.

Even when they are loyal and friendly, sometimes, it can be very difficult for a Scorpio to trust anyone, which is why they end up feeling insecure and anxious. Known for its vengeful nature, the Scorpio zodiac sign can be very unforgiving sometimes.

Scorpio Health

Scorpios are very sexual, which is why these natives are prone to UTIs, STDs, and other diseases related to the sex organs. They are also subject to ill health brought by their overimagination, and overprotective nature.
