Key Word: Versatility
Ruling Planet: Pluto and Mars (secondary)
The sign of Scorpio is traditionally ruled by Mars, but in modern astrology, most people associate Scorpio with Pluto along with Mars. Scorpio is the 8th sign of the zodiac.
In 1930 Pluto was discovered extremely far from the sun where it is both cold and dark, this is part of the reason the daughter of the person that discovered it suggested Pluto. Physically, Scorpio is related to or “rules” the sexual organs and excretion. Scorpio is considered a night/Yin sign by nature along with all of the other water and earth signs. This Yin energy can give the illusion that Scorpio is passive in the way it expresses its energy. But don’t be fooled, Scorpio likes control and is not generally passive to anyone who is paying close attention. As a Water sign (Icosahedron), Scorpio is connected with the world of emotions, particularly the deep primeval emotions concerned with sexuality and survival. As a Fixed sign, its energy manifests in a stable manner, giving great determination and endurance. Planets in Scorpio or the 8th house, seek to establish emotional security in a threatening world. This is why there is usually an association with jealousy and passion.
Anxiety in the face of the unknown and consequently a desire to be able to control what is going on leads to a certain obsessive quality in planets placed in this sign.
There is a secretiveness and compulsiveness which is hidden under a facade of strong self-control. Instinctual knowledge, occult talents and psychological ability manifest themselves in Scorpio, because the character dwells on the inner emotional demons most people choose to ignore.
