If you celebrate your birthday between 24th October and 22nd November then you were born when the Sun was in the 8th sign of the Zodiac, Scorpio.
The scorpion makes a good, silent, and perceptive friend who detests arrogance and superficiality. The Scorpio will take you on a journey, either spiritually or literally, they want to take you away from it all, and in doing so, you will come back transformed, or feeling like a different person.
Scorpio is one of the most mysterious and enigmatic signs of the Zodiac. In this article we’re going to explain to you everything you need to know about this water sign.
First what creature rules Scorpio?
It’s a little creature with a sting in its tail. It’s silent and deadly and lives underground. It is the thing that you don’t see coming. This is a well-known character trait of the Scorpio: secretive, silent, and mysterious.
The Egyptians associated scorpions with the afterlife, or at the very least death and regeneration, because they existed and made use of the old and rotten and made them knew again. Their knowledge is not one in the open, that is extroverted, like the Aquarian. The Scorpio way is introverted, defensive, and individualistic.
This potential can make the Scorpio a quiet individual who is reserved and feel separate from the rest of society, in a different way to the Aquarian.
Scorpio is ruled by Mars
Scorpio is a sign ruled by Mars, this means that the Scorpio is on a mission in life to put things right. It can confuse many people why Mars, a fiery planet, would rule a water sign, but Mars is the planet that can rouse and channel the water element to its bidding, and also a reminder that water is just as destructive as fire.
Scorpio is the fixed water sign
As a water sign, Scorpios experience their life from their feelings, but this is the fixed water sign. The very extent of this element and what it is capable of. This is ecstasy, sexual and psychological, the ultimate feelings of human and animal existence.
The Key-Phrase of Scorpio is “I desire”
There is not much wisdom in desire, but there is wisdom in being aware of what motivates you as an individual. The Scorpio more than any other sign is capable of flying over the desire nature, and is one of the reasons why another symbol for this sign is the eagle: the ability to glide over the desire and have a bird’s eye view of life.
Scorpio is the middle sign of Autumn
As the middle sign of Autumn, life has gone underground, it’s the time of Halloween, when the veil between this world and the next is at its thinnest. There doesn’t seem to be any end in sight, and it continues the spiritual journey set off in Libra, but takes us to the greatest depth of spiritual understanding.
