Scorpio Sun Sign People
The Eagle, Snake, and Phoenix
I know you believe all Scorpio sun sign people are obsessed with sex and death. Obsession is a strong word, but yes, they are interested in both of these issues. The eighth house rules Scorpio and also rules sex, death, inheritances, insurance policies, and money invested or shared with a partner.
But Scorpios do want to solve the mystery of what happens to us after death. Is there an afterlife? When life is bad are we living in Hell now? Where does our Spirit go when our body dies? These are all questions a Scorpio wants to have answered. And since they research anything that interests them, they will study religions or anything to find those answers. Many are morticians or the good Scorpios are ministers. They can be shamans and healers. And they sure know how to handle money! They are great lovers and sex is integral to their being. Scorpios are very emotional though, and sex with one can be a highly spiritual experience. Once you have sex with a Scorpio, it spoils you for anyone else, they won't measure up. But let's take a closer look. Scorpio people are much more complex than this.
Scorpios Are Complicated
Scorpio is symbolized by the scorpion, eagle and phoenix. This is a complicated sign, as are its deeply serious, strongly emotional and willful natives. Before Pluto was discovered, Mars was considered the ruling planet of Scorpios. In the past four or five years, scientists have decided that Pluto is not a planet. It is still accepted as Scorpio’s ruler in the astrology world. Of course, in this sign there would be a mystery about the ruler, Scorpio sun sign people are mysterious and only reveal as little about themselves as possible.
There has also been talk of a new, recently found thirteenth Astrology sign called Ophiuchus, which allows only nine birth days for a person to be considered a Scorpio at all! This is not news, the ancient Babylonians “discovered” this body in the night sky, around the celestial equator, ages ago. Ignore it. Science does no longer recognize Pluto as a planet, but astrology does.
Scorpio people can soar like an eagle when life is good and they are in their element, or fall to the depths of a scorpion. They go to extremes.The phoenix symbol is most fitting because Scorpio sun sign people can reinvent themselves and are capable of achieving extreme life changes many times during the course of their lives, always after a great deal of soul searching. This is normally after something so unspeakably bad has happened to them that a weaker person would lie in bed for months, Scorpios are made of tougher stuff than that.They often want to work to better themselves in some way. They are either very good or very bad, there are no shades of gray for a Scorpio person. They have the ability to rise from the ashes, like a phoenix, and the inner strength to make harder changes than mere mortals of other signs. They can transform no matter how terrible a situation life has dealt them.
Please remember that no sun sign ever “falls on a cusp”, the sun was in a specific sign at the time of your birth. You need to look it up in a book called an ephemeris, which lists which signs all planets were in for a period of usually fifty years. You can also find tables online which tell you what sign a planet was in on a certain date.The birthdays normally fall approximately between Oct. 21st, and Nov. 21st, but this is not a hard and fast rule, signs can begin on the 20th of the month and end as late as the 23rd. Using the 21st is just a general way to understand the cycle of each zodiac sign.
Highly Emotional and Stubborn
Scorpio is a fixed, water sign, so its natives are very emotional and stubborn. It may help you understand their nature if you think of ice. If you annoy them enough, you will be the recipient of the famous Scorpio “icy stare”, or feel that infamous sting of sarcasm. But please do not take this the wrong way. Scorpio people can be very nice, they just have a low tolerance level for things and people they do not like. They do not accept changes easily.
But they are surprisingly sentimental, more than most other signs. They only show it to the few people they love and trust the most. You may be shocked to find they saved a letter you wrote them twenty years ago when you tried to comfort them after a breakup, or when you see they still have a dried flower from somebody’s wedding that they saved. Reserved and suspicious by nature, it takes time to win their trust. But once you have, they will be your loyal and true friend for life. Scorpio sun sign people are frugal with money and know how to stretch a dollar. One way they save money is by re-purposing old, used items. Scorpios, like other water signs, are very creative and can make lovely things out of old things others would throw out. They are both energetic and need rest in short spurts.
A person who perceives life as either black or white has no middle ground, so has strong opinions. Once you understand that, you will have the key to understanding Scorpio sun sign people. They have very deep emotions, so intense they sometimes do not know how to deal with them. Scorpios love being near the water, whether for fishing or going on a cruise. They tend to mind their own business, and would prefer you do the same. They will listen if you want to share what is on your mind, and will keep a confidence. But do not expect them to spill everything they feel because you did! They speak in a blunt manner, but not to hurt your feelings, they just want to get to the point.
Amulets and Talismans
Amulets and talismans for Scorpio sun sign people are lapus lazuli, the blue stone with gold flecks which helps to open your third eye.These are very psychic people, and if you love one, soon you will be able to communicate by telepathy. Scorpios often suffer from IBS or stomach ailments, and fluorite is a good stone to help that.It's light green and often mixed with clear crystal. Amethyst is also regarded as the stone of the seer or mystic, a natural choice for psychic Scorpio. They also sharpen the intellect and protect one from slander.
Blue sodalite is also great for opening the third eye and helping aid intuition, especially the more psychic the person is. Citrine stops people from being too extravagant (not that Scorpios need a stone to be careful in financial matters). It also helps Scorpios find success and abundance, although they are pretty good at that on their own! Moss agate can aid sadness and helps heal fights between friends. It is a general mood stabilizer, and helps one see life with the glass half full. It also allows a Scorpio to see the beauty of simple things.
Serious and Psychic
The key phrase for Scorpio is “I desire.” Scorpio sun sign people deal with the process of transformation on all levels. They normally change things to try to improve them. Scorpios possess the strongest will power and the most intense emotional desires. There is tremendous force in a Scorpio’s romantic nature, so do not toy with them! They are very serious and do not take anything lightly, so it is best if they start with good intentions from the start. They are strong defenders of justice or those in need, and never get involved in anything halfway. Although they despise weakness in themselves, they are surprisingly tender with those who are weak and need help. Scorpio sun sign people are not by nature diplomatic but say their truth bluntly. They like to investigate anything that interests them and will leave no stone unturned in research.
Scorpio sun sign people are very psychic people and have worked hard to develop their gift further. You do not have to say what is on your mind, they can read you like a book. They see visions and auras, and should always trust their natural instincts. They have penetrating eyes that see right through you and a strong aura of magnetism. People are always drawn to them. Scorpios love to study any occult subject and are most likely well versed in many of them. They want answers to the mysteries of life, and make a large effort to find those answers. One thing that many families discover is that if a Scorpio in the family dies, often another one is born within the same year. I have seen it happen several times.
Intelligent and Inquisitive
Scorpio sun sign people make good researchers as they have inquisitive minds and love puzzles. They can also be firefighters, detectives, scientists, doctors, nurses, first aid squad volunteers, or career Navy people. They like discipline and the sea. Whatever your Scorpio decides to do for a living will be done with their characteristic intensity. They have sharp minds and are good at finding lost things. Scorpios are gentle and patient with children, or with anyone they perceive as less strong than themselves. The Scorpio sun sign love nature is romantic, but they can be possessive and jealous at times. So it’s up to you to teach them not to be that way, and to convince them that you can be trusted. They are bold when they take action, and brave in any emergency situation. They never forget a kindness and will always help someone who did something nice and return the favor. Scorpios hate to get rid of anything, but on the up side, are good recyclers, and often make good managers of second hand shops. They have an artistic streak like other water signs and love to repurpose old “finds” to adapt them for new uses. They love antiques and rooting around in second hand shops. They also like to build things and work with their hands.
