Scorpio Traits & Overview

SCORPIO DATES: October 23 – November 22
SYMBOL: The Scorpion
MODE + ELEMENT: Fixed Water
RULING PLANET: Mars & Pluto
HOUSE: Eighth
Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, and that shouldn’t be taken lightly—nor should Scorpios! Those born under this sign are dead serious in their mission to learn about others. There’s no fluff or chatter for Scorpios, either; these folks will zero in on the essential questions, gleaning the secrets that lie within.

The Scorpio zodiac sign concerns itself with beginnings and endings and is unafraid of either. They also travel in a world that is black and white and has little use for gray. The curiosity of Scorpios is immeasurable, which may be why they are such adept investigators.
The folks with a Scorpio horoscope sign love to probe and know how to get to the bottom of things. The fact that they have a keen sense of intuition certainly helps.

Scorpio Symbolism + Myth

The constellation known as Scorpio goes back to Babylonian times, where it was called “the creature with the burning sting.” Scorpio contains the red star Antares, which means “the rival of Mars,” and is also called “the heart of the Scorpion.” This potent fixed star is observed in various astrological and magical practices as having an intense Mars-like quality.

In Greek mythology, the Scorpion is associated with the death of Orion. There are many versions of this tale, but the one connected to Scorpio tells of a boastful hunter Orion, who bragged that he could kill all of the animals in the wild kingdom.

The earth goddess Gaia objected and sent a Scorpion to stop Orion. He confronted, and fought the Scorpion, but died when the great beast stung him in the head. The Scorpion was placed in the heavens as a reward from Gaia for his service, and Zeus placed Orion there as well to commend his valiant fight.

Scorpio Element, Mode, and Season

Mid-autumn

Scorpio season in the western tropical zodiac begins on October 23, commencing the middle of the autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. This is the time of year when the sun’s heat and light are beginning to wane, with the darkness of night beginning to outweigh the daylight hours.

From this point, the days continue to decrease in length toward the Winter Solstice. It is during Scorpio’s time that many world cultures observe themes of death and rebirth, in holidays like Halloween, Samhain, All Saints Day, and El Día de Los Muertos. Scorpio’s connection with inward reflection, the shadows, and transformation is mirrored in the mystery and melancholy of the Autumn season.

Fixed Mode

Scorpio is the third of the four fixed signs of the zodiac, who all hold the elemental energy of endurance and stability in the center phase of the four seasons. Scorpio begins the middle of Autumn, when the season is most “fixed” and established, lending to the deep, tenacious, and obsessive tendencies of Scorpio.

Water Element

Scorpio’s personality traits are related to its element, which is water, the second heaviest element, thought by ancient astrologers to be the fluid, adaptive, yet tangible form of matter. Water represents the moistening and cohering principle that binds and connects all forms of nature.
Without it, nothing that takes a material form could “stick” together. Water fertilizes the earth so that nature and creativity can incubate and bloom. Scorpio’s creativity, intuition, imagination, and strong investigative powers are all akin to the consolidating connectivity of the water element.

Scorpio Planetary Rulership

Domicile of Mars

In classical astrology, Mars is the planetary ruler of both Aries and Scorpio. Aries was thought to be the day, or diurnal home of Mars, with Mars finding a second nocturnal home in brooding and secretive Scorpio.

In Scorpio, Mars has full affinity and potency in the warrior-like tendencies of this sign, but because it is in its nocturnal home, these powers take on a more secretive and covert expression. This placement presents a slower, cooler, and more calculated use of anger and drive.

Scorpio is more patient, and emotionally and psychologically nuanced than brash and brazen Aries. Those born with Mars in Scorpio can be more tactical and observant to wield behind the scenes of power. The motto “revenge is a dish best-served cold” suits this tenacious and fixated archetype.

Modern Ruler: Pluto

The planet Pluto, named for the god of the underworld, was discovered during a pivotal time in modern history. Found by astronomer Clyde Tombaugh in 1930, Pluto appeared out of the darkness through theories of a trans-Neptunian planet. At the time, many powerful Plutonian synchronicities were happening in the world, like massive world wars, the exploration of depth psychology, and the splitting of the atom. The latter discovery saddled humanity with the responsibility and ability to unleash mass destruction never seen before.

Astrologers of the modern era assigned Pluto as a co-ruler of Scorpio, since it’s dark themes of power, destruction, and inner discovery were similar to the themes this mysterious archetype explores. Combined with the assertive power of Mars, Scorpio’s Plutonian sub-signature makes this archetype uniquely suited to confront and transform personal and collective trauma.

Detriment of Venus

Scorpio is in polarity with the fixed earth sign Taurus. Ruled by Mars, Scorpio likes to confront and conquer, where Taurus, ruled by Venus, likes to connect and keep the peace. Venus, when in the opposite sign of her preferred home, is said to be in detriment, or at a sort of disadvantage in Scorpio.

Imagine the planetary goddess of love, luxury, and attraction having to stay in a secret military bunker, with only weapons and war trophies as the resources to make a life. With this sign placement, she would have to compensate, with Venus in Scorpio natives often being private, secretive, and perhaps mistrustful in love. They may have frequent conflicts in following their passions and may be overwhelmed by their desires and emotional attachments.

Those born with this placement have a do-or-die attitude when it comes to love, either going all-in or becoming vengeful if they are scorned. Love, affection, and connection may either be somewhat fraught for these natives, or very potent, exciting, and outside the norms of society. The passion and friction that this placement produces may be channeled into the artistic pursuits of these creative individuals.

Fall of the moon

Since the moon is said to be exalted in Taurus, it is in its fall in the opposite sign of Scorpio. While not as challenging to integrate as a detriment, the fall shows the emotional “pitfalls” that those with this placement may fall into. Here, the moon’s nurturing and receptive qualities are concentrated and intensified in this fixed water sign.

The moon in Mars’ nocturnal sign can heighten the powers of intuition and concentration, but can also exacerbate dark moods. Those with this placement often have a potent, all-encompassing emotional life, that is deep and shadowy. These natives could face many inner demons and are also acutely aware of the psychic imbalances of others in their sphere.
On the positive side, the moon in Scorpio is often found in the charts of uniquely creative and intuitive people who make great investigators, psychologists, or psychic counselors. People with this placement may need to do a lot of their healing and soul-tending to keep their psychic boundaries clear when working and living with others.

Scorpio House Rulership

The Eighth House

In the modern astrology system of the Twelfth Letter Alphabet, each zodiac sign rules one of the twelve houses in the birth chart. This innovation was created by psychological astrologers to match sign affinities to related house topics.

Scorpio was assigned the eighth house of endings, death, and inheritances since Scorpio’s dark territory seemed aligned with the concerns of this house. Since Scorpio is ruled by assertive Mars, and potent Pluto, it invites these transformative planetary sub-signatures to the eighth house.

The Sixth House

In traditional astrology, Scorpio’s planetary ruler Mars was said to find his “joy” in the sixth house of “bad fortune,” health, and service of the birth chart. This is related to Mars classically being considered one of the more difficult, or “malefic” planets in astrology, responsible for conflicts, violence, and injuries in the life of these natives when badly placed.
Since the sixth house has a connection to health challenges and hard luck, Mars can “joyfully” express its more unwelcome offerings here, or at least has a leg up on being “extra-Marsy” and powerful.

Scorpio Characteristics

Personality

Scorpio’s archetypal traits are derived from its receptive, feminine, or yin qualities, making this sign oriented toward contemplation and engagement with inner awareness. Alive in both a Scorpio woman or Scorpio man, those born with the Scorpion as their rising, sun, or moon sign has a mysterious, intuitive, and power-wielding dynamic in the core of their personality, an echo of the shadowy Autumn season.

As a fixed sign, Scorpio holds the qualities of being a sustainer, being able to apply profound powers of concentration to projects, and discovering hidden truths. As a result, those with the sign of the Scorpion prominent in their charts tend to be magnetic, highly sensitive, intuitive, creative, and secretive at times.

Strengths

The primary Scorpio strengths can be found in their devoted, determined, and observant natures. They are hard workers, often artistic, and deeply committed to study and research. You can count on the Scorpion to see whatever they have committed to through to the end.

Scorpios tend to be receptive and patient, letting others play their cards and show their intentions first to better understand the emotional and psychological dynamics of their relationships. Magnetic and mysterious, Scorpio is drawn toward dark, taboo, or occult subjects, and is curious about the hidden facets of life that others may shy away from.
The Scorpion tends to be fearless in the dark, avoided, and mysterious inner depths of the psyche, and potent realities of life like death and transformation. While Scorpio is often misunderstood and feared as an archetype, those born under this sign are very sensitive, empathetic, and can be quite compassionate.

They passionately bond themselves, heart and soul, to those they care for. Once they feel they can trust, they are quite loyal to the friends and lovers that make it into their inner circle. Scorpio understands innately what it feels like to be the weirdo or the outsider, and they have a natural connection to the underdog or those who are deemed untouchable in society.

Because of this, they are uniquely poised to be of great service to those in our society that suffer the most, like the homeless, the mentally ill, and people who have been outcast for divergent spiritual beliefs or lifestyles.
Anyone with preferences that challenge conventional sexual, spiritual, and social ideas are potentially the Scorpion’s greatest allies and sources of affinity and acceptance. Scorpio can take emotional intelligence, understanding, and healing to the darkest circumstances, and may have had to overcome some healing or transformative experience of their own in their lives. Their fearless understanding of trauma, and survival, makes these folks the strongest psychic and spiritual warriors.

Weaknesses

Some potential weaknesses in the Scorpio archetype are rooted in their great strengths. Though they are determined and devoted to their work, they can become so rigid, fixated, and obsessed that it can be difficult to adapt to changes or to let go of an idea that is no longer useful.

Those born under the sign of the Scorpion are receptive and patient, but they can be suspicious and slow to trust. Others may be forthcoming about their vulnerabilities, but if Scorpios are feeling insecure, they can use what others have revealed to be emotionally manipulative and controlling. Like the other fixed signs, they can be slow to forgive, and those that cross the Scorpion may feel their vengeful sting.

Being naturally drawn to taboo and occult subjects can have the Scorpion inordinately focused on the dark side of life, giving them a pessimistic and nihilistic worldview. They may start seeking darker motives everywhere, which can lead to isolation and paranoia. It can then be hard to relax, trust, and enjoy life’s simple pleasures to stay in balance.

Naturally sensitive and passionate, those born under the sign of the Scorpion give themselves heart and soul when seeking love and sexual connection, but if this isn’t reciprocated with the same intensity, they can become needy and obsessive with their lovers.

Because of their co-relation with planet Pluto, Scorpios are often drawn to go beyond the fringes of society to seek thrill and adventure, yet this can easily lead the Scorpion into danger and self-destruction. Like a moth to a flame, they are lured toward intensity, but this may not always be in their best interest.

Like all water signs, Scorpio is vulnerable to absorbing toxic energies, so if they are offering healing or counseling work, they need to have cleansing practices. Breathing exercises, saunas, smudging, and protective aura visualizations are all ways the Scorpio native can maintain psychic health.
Scorpios may need to seek and maintain healing of their own before they engage in service work. Moon in Scorpio natives, especially, may have to work through dark moods and depression at times in their lives.
Scorpio children will be well-nurtured if they are accepted unconditionally, and not shamed for having unique interests or big life questions. Acceptance at home may help offset a teenage Scorpio’s rebellion, and challenging artistic pursuits or martial arts may keep these fearless natives positively occupied.

Scorpio Life Purpose and Career

Mantra and Purpose

The voice of depth, mystery, and intuition comes forward in the Scorpio mantra: I transform. The Scorpion’s sense of purpose is all about plumbing life’s shadows to uncover hidden truth and to attain power. Operating in fixed mode, Scorpios directs their intense laser focus into their work, projects, and relationships. These take on an all-encompassing mythic proportion, as those born under the sign of the Scorpion live their lives actively exploring the unseen depths of the soul.

We all have Scorpio somewhere in our birth chart, so we can look to the house that this sign rules to find the specific area of our life we approach in a driven and intuitive way, or where we need to call in penetrating magnetism and mastery.

Scorpio at Work

Scorpio’s focused and determined nature makes them uniquely suited for professions where they are needed either to solve a problem or mystery or to make a discovery. This could take form in many professions and roles, but will likely not be found in jobs that are overly multi-faceted and distracting. While they are intelligent enough to multi-task, they prefer not to and do their best work when they are left to manage themselves and concentrate.

Once on a trail, they will keep digging and uncovering until they get to the root of what they want to know. While content to work independently, they can be important team players, as they have an innate understanding of human nature and psychology. And while they don’t make a big show of it in the workplace, they are usually wielding power and authority behind the scenes.

The Scorpion is a nocturnal creature, and so we may find these folks working through the quiet hours of the night making great progress while the world is asleep.

Scorpios are likely to have a talent for research. With their keen focus and knack for recognizing patterns, they will work well in many fields like medicine, science, and mental health. They may even design or conduct experiments, collecting and evaluating their discoveries and observations.
All behind the scenes or after-hours work are well suited to Scorpio, making them naturals at investigative work. These natives will be drawn to being private investigators, detectives, and even secret service or espionage agents.

Mars-ruled Scorpios are similar to Aries natives in that they may be suited for many facets of the military or martial arts. These fields take them fearlessly into the most physically and psychologically challenging scenarios, which they excel at by overcoming limitations.
With the Plutonian sub-rulership, we may find many Scorpios drawn to dark, underground work, perhaps as miners or geologists. Those born under the sign of the Scorpion may also be drawn toward professions handling the dead, as cemetery workers, morticians, or funeral home directors.

With strong mystic talents, Scorpios study the occult, and may themselves be leaders in this mysterious world. This unique skill could take many forms, such as astrologers, psychics, tarot readers, or spiritual teachers.
As a water sign, Scorpio has potent healing powers and may take various roles in medicine and mental health. We may find these natives becoming our steadiest surgeons, our brightest psychologists, and most precise pharmacists. Scorpio natives would also be suited for roles as hospice workers, death doulas, or grief counselors, bravely attending to those in their darkest hours.

Those born under the sign of the Scorpion have deep, creative souls. They are often musical and artistic and may explore themes of power and potency in their work. These natives may also make excellent music therapists, understanding how to wield the transformative vibrations of sound.

Review

The hardest decision is choosing what scent to buy, so I had to buy four. All four are fantastic! Now I struggle to decide which one to use! The package came with a keychain and an amazing essential oil roll on that smells great. I definitely recommend. A little bit of this butter goes a long way, yet somehow it does not feel greasy either. I'm over the moon that I found this store! Buy from this store!!!
