At the exact minute of your birth, the astrological sign that is rising on the eastern horizon is designated the Ascendant or Rising Sign. The Ascendant is how you dawn on the world, how you present yourself to others. If someone were to guess your astrological sun sign, they would guess it based on what you show the world, which is your rising sign. Its the characteristics and personality traits that you put forth for all to see. Its the stained glass window that you project outward for the rest of your chart to flow through.
Those with a Leo rising are typically giving, prideful, emotionally reactive, outgoing, loud, narcissistic, brave, confident, dramatic, romantic, and they are excellent showmen. They tend to go about like royalty, taking care of their subjects and expecting complete devotion from them. You have vitality and can be a bit of a risk taker, sometimes too much so. Extremely prideful, the biggest insult someone can throw at you would be to your ego. Appreciation is also something you require in order to feel satisfied. You can come off as loud and tough, but inside you are a big softie. When you care, you are easily wounded. In regards to a romantic partner, you would prefer that they are someone who will make you proud, and you in turn would like to foster this sort of reaction from them. You are very loyal to those you care for and would protect them fiercely if ever need be. Your anger can flare up suddenly but luckily this tends to resolve quickly and you are back to being your merry self again. Dramatic displays tickle your fancy and you can be somewhat of a drama queen or king yourself. Being in the limelight, all eyes focused on you is not only comfortable for you but you seek this attention out. At times you can be inflexible and unyielding, but you do this in a jovial way. It is unlikely that you will ever forget a slight, particularly if your ego is damaged, though you will usually forgive. You are rather sporty and enjoy being out in nature. You have an excellent drive and cheerful disposition, however if something goes wrong in your love relationship, it can zap the life out of you. Having warmth and love in your life is crucial to you. When discouraged, you may lose your willpower to live. A lesson you will need to learn during your lifetime is to be more humble. Leo is ruled by the Sun and therefore its placement in your chart will be significant.
Shhh! Scorpio is fascinated by the emotional dimension of sex and any sensual activities. Well, to Scorpio just about everything has a sensual ingredient. Read all about Scorpio sexuality here.
If the planets symbolize the forces and energies that happen in different situations, then the aspects between the planets symbolize how these energies work together and integrate with each other. There are challenging and easy aspects between the planets and it is up to the individual to choose how they are going to utilize the aspect energies for a positive outcome. The aspects between planets are said to speak to each other. Depending on which planets are aspecting each other and the rest of the natal chart, will determine which planet is dominate and which is not in the aspect between them. But ultimately it is up to the individual to decide how they are going to use the aspects of planets in their chart with their free will, in a meaningful and productive way.
You can be unwilling to entertain another persons point of view, preferring to hold tight to your own. Objectivity may also be difficult for you due to self-centredness. You enjoy communicating to others about all the things you love, think, or feel but are disinterested in hearing about other people. You are witty, with a sharp mind and a hunger for knowledge and new stimulation. If you are unable to experience novel situations, you become disinterested in your life; consistent mental stimulus is imperative for you. You are well able to convey your views and can be adept at persuading others, though you need to apply a greater focus while listening to people. Often you are trying to figure out what your next point in the conversation will be and miss out on what was said. You run on a high voltage and may develop little nervous habits. Finding an outlet for your anxiety by use of your hands may alleviate this nervous energy. In addition, try to focus more on what other people are contributing to the situation rather than being immersed in your own talents.
Yours is a contradictory balancing act between a strong force towards action and cautious reserve. If this placement is expressed negatively, you can be merciless and act without heart. Inside yourself you store every slight that has ever been afflicted upon you. Feeling resentful and angry, you remember each hurt and refuse to bestow forgiveness. You are vengeful, plotting ways to repay those who have hurt you, though you may not actually act upon these musings. This placement will also bestow you with great ambitious and dedication. Challenges will not deter you as you can work very diligently, persevering beyond what most others would be capable of. However, the most common impact of this placement will make you emotionally fickle, going from warm to cool rather suddenly, or it will provide you constant trials so as to assess your character. The general feel of this placement is not necessarily pleasing, though it may bring to you advantageous abilities that allow you to survive extremely difficult situations, and that is worth quite a lot. If you are able to get through the tension that this placement provides, you will find yourself a very strong person indeed.
When you focus diligently towards one aspiration you are able to achieve a great deal. The path can be quite hard on you however, and you will feel as though you are left with the burden of the entire task on your own. You are able to call upon an impressive amount of self-restraint and discipline when needed although you may criticise yourself harshly, feeling that you are never quite good enough and heaven forbid it if you were to make a mistake. At times, the doubt you feel within can damage opportunities for success. If you are involved with a long term endeavour you may find yourself feeling defeated when the project does not advance quickly enough for your liking. When you attempt to assert yourself, you are often met with opposition. This can lead to you feeling as though you are inferior in comparison to others. You must develop a way to channel the inner feelings of aggravation you possess or they will lead to you feeling as though you may burst at any moment. Often when this burst does occur, it is directed at the people you feel most bonded to. Be careful not to generate resentment in your loved ones; they are not a doormat for you to wipe your dirty feet on. It might be best for you to labour alone. This placement is likely to produce many interruptions, postponements, and challenges regarding your plans; be patient.
You must find equilibrium between your wants or wishes, and the responsibilities that you are obliged to. Pursuing your longings is likely to cause others to view you as self-centred, foolish, and undependable. However, if you restrain yourself completely from pursuing your inner wants, you might not be able to keep yourself from ripping at the seams; both areas need to be catered to. Unfortunately, due to this tension, you feel angry and irritated because you believe that your decisions are somehow made for you and you are unable to engage in what is most pleasing for you. These resentments keep building and cause you to emote negatively, often in spite and mockery. It may help you to write down the things that you are obligated to do first and make sure you get them done. Next write down what you would most like to do for pleasure and start on those. This way you have a clearly defined path towards accomplishing both types of endeavours and are not fighting with yourself, causing delay due to frustration by indecision. Highly detail-oriented and organised, you make sure that the work you take on is done right.
In addition to the above, one of the lessons given in the placement is for you to be aware of and appreciate just how beautiful life can really be. Many times you are unable to see the positive things going on around you because you are so bogged down by the difficulties that you face on a regular basis. Life can be cold and harsh at times but, as with everything, there must be balance. Every yin has its yang and the harshness must be tempered by love and beauty, both of which can be found all around you if you only LOOK. You require warmth and care though these things may not be abundant in your life. If you want more love in your life you must be able to express your own feelings to other people, something that can be particularly difficult for you to do. Previous hurts are not easily forgotten by you and you may carry with you a deep emotional wound, creating a detached, reserved demeanour that others may find impenetrable. This sombre attitude can baffle others as they are unable to read you.
As mentioned previously, you have a tendency towards keeping any negative feelings secured within until they reach a boiling point and burst forth. Holding in your anger will only cause you harm, whether this be mentally, emotionally, or physically; you are susceptible to disorders affecting the organs that are responsible for cleaning your system and must be mindful of your kidneys and gallbladder. Furthermore, it would be beneficial for you to monitor your wants as they can become destructive and uncontrollable if left to their own devices. It is also possible that you will find it difficult to complete tasks that you have started as your determination wavers as time carries on. Another influence with this placement is an inclination towards adopting an unsympathetic, cold-hearted, self-centred approach where you will only help others if you are able to benefit from doing so.
You like to keep your feelings under a tight reign. This placement helps to balance your feelings even when circumstances are difficult. Others may be frantic during these times, yet you remain calm and collected. You are reasonable and unbiased during stressful situations which help you to solve the underlying issue amidst emotional chaos. This placement allows you to concentrate more effectively. You do not skirt your duties and people know they can rely on you to do what you have committed to doing. You are loyal to those in your circle and to the people you feel close to, supporting them behind the scenes. You dislike being idle and enjoy watching the fruit of your labour. Mentally you tend to stick to the conservative route, letting tradition guide you. Frivolous thoughts for the sake of fun are not really your cup of tea; you take a more sombre approach. However, you are not always able to show your feelings towards those you care for. It would be beneficial if you could develop a more open manner and convey these inner emotions outwardly to them somehow. You are independent and methodical, as well as having a good ability to organise, handle money and business, and behave diplomatically when interacting with people. You are very patient and willing to persevere until you have reached your goal. You are ethical, dutiful, faithful, and fair.
You are capable of aiding others by using your artistic imagination. Emotionally, you may express yourself by creating in some form, whether this be writing, dancing, art, or music. You are drawn to theoretical concepts and new age topics, as well as subjects having to do with the spiritual realm. Religious choirs tend to sooth you and inspire you and you try to help others to achieve the same experience. You possess a highly spiritual consciousness and should trust your gut instincts. People generally have faith in you to be a moral person and seek your counsel, as you are sympathetic and emotionally in tune. You may have accurate premonitions or visions that aid you in realising your dreams. Look for the true meaning in all of your endeavours.
You are artistically inventive, unique, open-minded, emotionally expressive, and tend to speak your thoughts without reserve. Others are drawn to your charming personality and sexual magnetism. Doing the same thing day in and day out is not for you, instead you are always ready for the next exciting adventure to begin and are enthused when someone is able to surprise you! Self-sufficient, you require much room to breathe in any partnership. Your views on relationships are anything but conventional, and you are open to alternative arrangements. For friendship, you usually seek out those that are different in some way; eccentricity only adds to the appeal. People walk in and out of your life spontaneously and are usually presented to you as a way to test your belief system and willingness to adapt. These people, as well as your friends, come around to satisfy inner necessities and will leave when they are of no more use. You have a fantastic way of looking outside the box and arriving at genius ways to solve challenges. Most of the time, whatever happens in your life is seemingly random and unexpected. You are unable to plan for these things, the only thing you can do is allow them to happen and act upon the present situation. This is especially the case in regards to your romantic endeavours. There will always seem to be something exhilarating, uncommon, and random occurring in your life that will aid you in gaining wisdom and growing spiritually.
You are imaginative with an amazing sensitivity and keen intuition. You prefer to behave in a caring, tender manner and enjoy a bit of romance. You empathise with others, listening to their troubles while never judging them. Your idealistic views can inspire others through artistic ventures, which you find deeply emotionally satisfying. Large bodies of water soothe your spirit and you are naturally drawn towards them. You may find that photographing the sea is fulfilling for you. You can be very selfless when aiding other people. Your emotions may become unbalanced if you are unable to channel your energy creatively. Metaphysical or mystical subjects fascinate you and you may be talented in these fields. There are tendencies towards escapism from the harsh realities of life and you will spend a lot of time dreaming up a better situation for yourself and basking in this dream-world. However, be mindful that you do not end up abandoning the real world and your obligations to it; the only way to conquer you obstacles is to face them. Your kindness and sensitivity can be susceptible to a sad tale, giving others opportunity to use this to their benefit; be careful who you trust. Learn to restrain your intense feelings and keep your feet on the ground.
You are not the assertive type and may have trouble standing up for yourself when necessary. It is important that you find a way to fight for the things you believe in. Always go with what your gut instincts are telling you as you are highly intuitive. Keep away from mystical endeavours that can cause more harm than good, such as calling forth dark spirits, hypnosis, and fortune-telling. You are very spiritual but not always realistic. It is difficult for you to say no when you are tempted by something, so it would be best if you kept yourself out of these circumstances completely. You tend to absorb the energy that you are surrounded with and therefore need be conscious to avoid negative situations or people; stay in a warm, encouraging environment so as to keep your optimism up. Sometimes you feel the need to seclude yourself from the world and over-indulge. When you start to care for someone, you may be prone to viewing them in rose-coloured glasses and putting them up on a pedestal. When they eventually disappoint you, you can feel as though your entire world is crashing down.
It is possible that you will feel the need to escape through substance abuse or lying to create a better situation for yourself. At times you cannot tell the difference between what is true and what is not. Conflict is difficult for you and when something unpleasant must be confronted, you will often escape to one of your daydreams as a way to avoid it. Too easily will you believe what others have told you without a healthy amount of scepticism. Once someone has appealed to your emotions, they can pretty much tell you anything they wish and you would not doubt them. Try to be aware of this shortcoming and reserve your judgement after you have had some time to think things through rationally. If your feelings have been wounded, it is possible that you will create a false story to get out of the circumstance rather than deal with it directly. Because you are so sensitive, it is difficult for you to decipher when someone is genuinely being honest with you; people can fool you easily. Even the smallest of slights can deeply affect you. When you are feeling hurt in this way, your first reaction may be to remove yourself from others completely, even if this is only in your own mind. Your active imagination can interpret a situation differently than it truly is and when you eventually find the truth of the matter, you can sink into despair. A theme of dishonesty or trickery is likely with this placement, whether it comes from other people or from within yourself.
The routines you have adopted can frustrate other people. You may be rude, ill-mannered, or personally unhygienic and these traits often aggravate others. There is a tendency towards laziness and a dislike of hard work. You believe that this sort of labour is meant for someone else, and you will watch others work while you relax, with a clear conscience. You are able to tell what people desire and sweet-talk them into doing what you want; being truthful is no concern of yours. You feel like there are two different people at war within you and this wreaks havoc for you personally. Sometimes you will become so accommodating with those you love that you become someone else and wind up feeling miserable in the end. You are unsure what exactly it is that you want out of a romantic partnership, someone to take care of you or someone to be on an equal level with. When you feel emotionally unsatisfied, you can over-indulge in rich foods. You are prone to over-eating sweets and richer cuisine in general, as you can be rather insecure. You may question your self-worth or attractiveness, despite people expressing otherwise. Try to develop a backbone and fight for the things that matter to you, or for yourself when necessary. You crave genuine care and affection for emotional security, and if you believe that this may be removed from your life, you start to fall apart. Your warmth stands on its own, though you must curb your possessive habits. Love transcends many lifetimes and we never fully say goodbye. Instead, we are brought back together in the next life.
Keep an eye on your finances as they can run away from you more rapidly than you can acquire them. You have a habit of indulging yourself too much as well as expecting your surroundings to be luxurious. Rather than do the work necessary to fix something, you will often sweep problems under the rug. You may feel as though you are not good enough just as yourself and you are constantly monitoring how popular you are. It is important for you to learn how to be brave and express your concerns when you have them. Sometimes you care so much about what people will think of you that you steer clear of any confrontation. However, your road to happiness involves building integrity and fighting for the things you believe in, as this will allow you to be truly who you are deep down.
Very affectionate, you enjoy engaging in romance and are a sensitive, appreciative pursuer. Others are drawn to you even if you are not stereotypically good-looking, though you often are. Your personality is vibrant and you are easy to be with, gaining you much popularity. You keep your emotions fairly steady and low-key, which can be very attractive to the opposite sex. There is a part of you that likes to play match-maker and you could easily put others together in a fantastic way, creating harmonious pairings that last.
You are driven by an amorous nature with a fondness for all things beautiful, yearning to channel your passion into creativity of any form. This placement denotes a charismatic magnetism that others respond to. Being alone for too long does not do you well and you prefer to be socially active, happily engaging with other people. You have a strong craving to express yourself affectionately and for this warmth to be reciprocated. Your vitality is apparent to others and people find you alluring. Romantic relationships are likely to flourish as you are aware of what you desire in a mate and are able to convey these feelings clearly. You do not hide your intentions, but rather take a direct, honest approach in these matters. However, you will avoid conflict if you can do so as you dislike disharmony. You invest much effort to understanding your feelings.
You are romantically idealistic and often will fall in love with the idea of someone rather than for who they actually are. Your tendency is to believe someone is your perfect soulmate, incapable of doing wrong, which leads you into becoming disillusioned when they inevitably disappoint you. It is very difficult for you to recover when this occurs. It would be most beneficial for you to take time to get to know someone with both of your eyes wide open, before coming to any conclusions about them; the same is true about the world at large. Your idealism in regards to what relationships should be like tends to create conflict for your real-life partnerships.
Another possibility in this placement is having dreamt up some perfect imaginary partner and searching for this person your whole life, not realising that no one could ever measure up as this person could never realistically exist. Your spirit is wrecked when the day comes that you finally understand that your fantasy is unattainable. Rather than seeking someone that fits in with your fantasy, look instead for someone that, while flawed as all humans are, can still be a great partner for you. Idealism is great as long as it is tempered with realism. Strangely enough, while you can be very romantic and daydream about the adventures you may have with your soulmate, you find it difficult to actually commit to any relationship. You are often elusive in regards to romantic endeavours and insincere to both the person involved, and yourself.
Caution must be taken not to be drawn into an unhealthy partnership where one person is far more dependent on the other or where one gives too much of themselves or sacrifices their well-being just to appease the other. Equality in a partnership is crucial and you should not feel like you need to save the other person or that they must consistently aid you.
You are particularly reactive to your environment and prefer being in a beautiful, harmonious place where you can foster your creative talents in some way. You are naturally drawn to artistic things or people. You possess an otherworldly allure that people find captivating. Sensuality in all forms attracts you, as does anything out of the norm or which requires you to use your keen intuition. Love situations do not exactly fill you with security. Your delicate nature may be difficult to handle sometimes but you must do your best to push forward. Try to be understanding that everyone has their shortcomings but it does not always make them unworthy of pursuing. Do not expect your mate to know what you are thinking at all times, but rather explain to them the inner workings of you. It is not a sign that they do not care for you when they are unable to read your thoughts; express yourself directly.
A lesson for you to learn in this life is how to change your worldly beliefs into spiritual wisdom. You may find material assets falling away unexpectedly without explanation to show you that the material things you own are unimportant; the experiences you have during your life, and the wisdom you gain from them, are the only things that will matter when you are leaving this life. Develop your ability to care for others without expectations, forgive them their foibles, and let go of any resentment you have built up. Do not be bothered by small issues, though take care not to be stepped on by going to the other extreme and becoming far too accommodating. You are prone to escapism through substance abuse when life becomes hard for you to handle. Rather than avoiding your troubles, roll up your sleeves and face them. Only then will you find the inner strength you had within yourself all along. The more you tackle things directly, the easier it will all become.
You are drawn to all things unconventional, untraditional, eccentric, or just plain odd. The old-fashioned way of doing things is not for you and you will not pay old traditions any mind when you are making your decisions. Searching for new experiences, you are always ready and willing to go off on a random adventure. You enjoy keeping up to date with all of the newest technology and often are the first to have the latest gadgets and gizmos. You are very independent and need a great deal of space to venture forward into the world. Progressive and innovative, you strive for change and reform of some sort. You think outside the box and can be madly brilliant with finding creative answers to whatever problem you are presented with. Artistic and highly intuitive, you must find an outlet to express these gifts. You are able to remove yourself from the lower impulses of human nature and call on your more enlightened self for guidance and purpose. Many times situations sort of just happen to you, spontaneously and seemingly at random; you can never quite know what to expect in your life. Some unseen force seems to be protecting you as you can get big breaks just when you felt time were running out.
You often procrastinate with daydreams when you should be working. Many times you avoid challenging tasks entirely, expecting them to disappear somehow. You tend to imagine that your worries are greater than they are or spend countless hours obsessing over problems that never come to pass. Very creative, you feel pulled to channel your energy into artistic pursuits, though they never seem to get off the ground as you do not possess sufficient motivation and diligence. The mystical realm tends to fascinate you though you must be mindful not to become engrossed in negative spiritual endeavours such as calling on dark spirits, hypnosis, and the like, as they will bring you trouble.
Self-restraint is not your strong point and you have a difficult time saying no to temptations. You are likely to have issues with substance abuse at some point in your life, though you need to curb these cravings as they will only bring you grief. You can be a bit delusional and would do well to develop some practicality; you need to keep your feet on the ground if you are to accomplish anything. Your empathy is deep and you are always willing to come to the aid of others. However, your sensitive emotions can be easily abused by those who may play the victim just to take advantage of your kindness. These situations have the potential to drag you down drastically. Keep in mind that you are in control of your own destiny and these people cannot harm you without you allowing them to. Focus on learning how to turn people down when your intuition warns you that they may not be worth trusting.
Finding your direction in life may prove challenging for you as you have trouble concentrating on any one specific point. You are prone to romanticism, nostalgia, and reacting emotionally. Your spirituality can be blinded by material desires. You are strongly affected by your environment and must pay attention to what sorts of circumstances you engage in. Physically you are sensitive to medication in general and should be mindful of how much of it you take, even when given a prescription from the doctor.
A quiet, non-confrontational nature can make it difficult for you to get ahead in life. Your tendency to fantasise breeds delusion, either from yourself or by other people. One of your life lessons is to learn how to defend your values and beliefs, despite potential controversy. Your sensitive feelings are easily wounded by others and you often evade any sort of disagreement, preferring to sweep things under the rug. You are likely to view others with rose-coloured glasses, placing them on a pedestal and seeing only their fine points. When they eventually disappoint you, you are crushed. You must enjoy other people for who they actually are rather than what you want them to be, flaws and all. Past life karma may place hidden adversaries in your path to account for dishonourable acts from the past; be cautious of who you trust.
You are generally happy, accepting, positive, laid-back, and generous. You want to spread some of the joy you feel to others, though at times you may give too much of yourself. In your mind, whatever you set out to accomplish will work out somehow and this can cause you to put in very little effort or concern. If something is difficult, you may exert only sluggish attempts of solving the issue. This is particularly true in regards to your emotions. You are also likely to indulge in tasty cuisine more than you should which causes you trouble in maintaining your figure and can lead to larger problems in the future. This placement bestows you with a pleasing personality, an idealistic viewpoint, an ethical nature, open-mindedness, good fortune, and monetary aid from friends and familial ties. You highly dislike dishonest behaviour and prefer to act honourably at all times; you have a very strong moral compass. You enjoy thinking about philosophy and can be rather devoted to your beliefs even if you do not belong to any specific religion. You are self-assured and do not suffer with the insecurities that many are plagued with; you know who you are and what you are capable of. When you do encounter trouble, it does not keep you down for long but rather you are likely to find your problems quite humorous. In fact, you try to insert a good deal of laughter and joy into your life in general. You hope to see others improving themselves and their situations and you are happy to aid them in doing so if it fosters their advancement. The main concern with this placement is to be mindful of your tendency towards laziness and over-indulgence. You are well-loved by others due to your upstanding nature.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The signs in astrology are the way that the actors behave on stage. They ask the question how? How is the planet motivated? How are they living their life, in their highest good or in their shadow? The signs describe in detail how the actor might react, behave or conduct themselves.
The sign of Scorpio is symbolised by both the scorpion, and the eagle. The scorpion signifies giving in to a lower, more animalistic nature where the focus is on satisfying inner desires without thinking of the penalties of doing so. They have yet to achieve enlightenment and are forced to live their lives via instinct. Scorpions are clever and patient, waiting for the perfect moment to strike their opponent. Eagles, on the other hand, are able to soar above lowly enticements as they have conquered their cravings through regeneration.
Scorpios are driven, effective, brave, capable, and instinctive (learn about compatibility with Scorpio here). In contrast, they are able to be envious, cynical, inflexible, vengeful, bitter, and possessive. Scorpios are always up for a challenge and can put forth immense focus and dedication when needed. They would do well in all fields requiring investigation, as they have an affinity for uncovering secrets.
A Scorpio can usually achieve any goal they decide to undertake as they have incredible will-power and perseverance. Mentally they are reasonable, intuitive, aware, motivated, observant, strategic, investigative, and magnetic. They tend to have strong views and can be very stubborn about changing them.
Scorpios tend to form social connections with ease and are exceptionally loyal to them. In their friendships, they will want to be aware of the persons intentions and future expectations, without revealing their own; they prefer to keep their aims a secret. However, they will make immense sacrifices for the people they care for. They are exceptionally protective of those they love, treating any perceived threats as if they were directed at the Scorpio themselves. Due to this extreme empathy and protectiveness, they may lash out at others through either words or physical actions.
A Scorpio is instinctive on a gut level and may not always be able to control their reactions; this makes them seem illogical when criticised. If they feel they are being threatened, they can use dark humour or become eerily quiet and uncommunicative, using either as a weapon. Their communication can become malicious, though they may insist they are only teasing. Just like the Scorpion, they can be very patient when waiting for the opportunity to get even with someone. It would be best for them to learn how to let go of past hurts instead.
Not much gets passed a Scorpios radar and it is unlikely they will be easily fooled; they are remarkably perceptive in regards to other peoples intentions. Due to the fact that they read others so easily, they will usually decide quickly what they think of someone, often to an extreme, and their opinions can be difficult to alter.
It is important for a Scorpio to develop adaptability as when they decide on a path to take, they find it tough to modify. Scorpios will not enjoy shallow subjects in general and prefer to delve into the depths of whatever situation they find themselves in. They crave intensity. Every action they take must mean something to them and they will want to be lost in their endeavours; they never do anything halfway.
A Scorpio will not engage in an action that they cannot fully throw themselves into, they either put in everything they have, or nothing at all. Every interest is investigated thoroughly, this extends to romantic interests. They need to understand every nook and cranny while revealing little about themselves. Though it may not be apparent, Scorpios are continuously dealing with extremely intense emotions and cravings internally. The immense emotional energy is the very reason they are able to persevere in trying circumstances. However, they may at times crush others while fighting their wars. Most will either see them as heroes or scoundrels.
Scorpios believe they must be self-accountable and can be quite hard on themselves; administering their own justice which can be quite harsh. They are independent though may be insecure and they will not enjoy being the centre the attention nor will they search for praise. Their health is good in general, though they must be mindful not to overindulge in sensual pleasures, including rich cuisine.
Romantically, Scorpios are faithful, loving, and express their affections readily. However, they may also be possessive and try to dominate their partner. They crave an all-encompassing love where they can be completely bonded to just one person.
You are caring, giving, and affectionate when expressing your love and you inspire those close to you to act in a dedicated and faithful manner towards you. Deep down, you may feel like you are a kind of royalty and you expect to be treated as such. You are unable to stand by a partner that you are not proud of; you need to be able to hold them in high regard. Appreciation, and being seen by others, is necessary for you. Being ignored is one of the most difficult things for you to handle and you can find yourself nursing heavy wounds when you are treated in this fashion. You prefer to be direct and honest with others, and vice versa. You are well-liked, giving, distinguished, faithful, motivated and diligent, with a probing mind. The situations that occur in your life, as well as your emotions, tend to be exaggerated to an extent. Unfortunately, at times you are capable of being arrogant, prideful, and flashy, as well as being rather too open and sensitive with your feelings.
You possess an extraordinary ability to focus and may find yourself completely engrossed in your projects. With natural investigative skills, you enjoy having to decipher complex problems. The topic of sex or death may be a mental theme for you, as you are often preoccupied with carnal desires or physical fascinations of any sort. You are strongly intuitive and observant, and may need to acquire knowledge through your own practice rather than relying on traditional educational methods. You may thrive working in the field of manual labour as you can do well with mechanics. Healing others is another avenue in which you may find success, especially with something involving your hands. You are capable, witty, insightful, clever, astute, and will often speak your mind bluntly and forcefully. Sarcasm and dark humour are right up your alley. You employ a double standard with others where you will keep your own thoughts reserved while leaving no stone unturned on your quest to discover other peoples secrets. You are exceptionally perceptive in comprehending the complexities of human nature and of any challenge presented to you, especially when you must plunge into hidden depths. However, you are not without your faults and can be argumentative, contrary, inflexible, doubtful, sarcastic, suspicious, and wilful. Mystical subjects may appeal to you.
Deeply passionate, possessive love is one of your greatest yearnings. The connections you acquire tend to be full of intensity and emotional highs. However, there may be a tendency towards envy and trying to control the loved the one. The more involved you are, the more possessive you will become; be mindful that you do not destroy the very thing you so wish to keep. Love for you is an all-encompassing state and you will hold onto whoever elicits this response in you, come hell or high water. You expect your partners to live up to your high expectations of them. You may find yourself wary of the friendships your partner cultivates, believing that outsiders are not to be trusted. With you it is either all or nothing and if your partner ever deceives you, you can become ice cold, loathing them with matching intensity of the love that once was. When crossed, you do not give second chances. You are drawn to those who are a bit mysterious as you enjoy finding hidden caverns of depth. Others are magnetically attracted to your subtle allure and although there is much going on emotionally for you beneath the surface, you are not always comfortable expressing your feelings outright. You may prefer to channel some of your emotional intensity into spiritual pursuits. Developing self-discipline will go a long way for you. There is a past-life karma that insists you conquer matters regarding sex and transformation or rebirth. Venus in Scorpio heightens your artistic abilities and brings focus to hidden affairs, lustful fascinations, obsessions, and unwholesome pacts and treaties.
You take great care in all that you do, making sure each detail is just right. You do not trust others to do as good of a job as you will, and often prefer to just do the job yourself than having to correct each imperfection. You do not mind putting in the extra efforts needed to be certain that you did the best job possible, whereas others usually would not exert themselves in this fashion. Having a task be done in a way that falls short of perfection, is not something you can abide by. You work hard to achieve the correct, effective, specific method for obtaining the best results. However, you may at times restrict yourself from even starting a task that you are unsure you can complete to your high standards. You are excellent at predicting the types of endeavours you can reasonably undertake, though at times you will undervalue your own skills. Talented with time management, you make sure to pace yourself rather than squander your energies. You may find that you are so careful to avoid any possible issue, that you will miss advantageous chances by deeming them too risky. Do not limit yourself because of your self-criticism, reach for the heights and you may surprise yourself with what you can accomplish. Relax and do not let anxiety over the little things cause you too much stress.
Sociable, compassionate, and philosophical, you prefer to enhance your knowledge by utilising your social connections as you are rather popular with others. You are able to inspire people to aspire to higher achievements. You have a great appreciation towards aesthetically pleasing things and may be interested in justice or artistic pursuits. However, you may need to be mindful for a tendency towards indulging yourself or exerting your energy on too many extravagances, as well as choosing a partner for what they can bring you rather than who they are; love the PERSON, not what their status. You may be more interested in showing society that your union is prosperous rather than blissful. A good deal of your resources will be applied to your marriage, possibly due to your spouses luxurious desires.

You are able to understand people and intricate situations with remarkable accuracy and have no trouble manoeuvring any circumstance you find yourself in. A managerial or administrative ability is also present. Your intuition is exceptionally strong and you may experience premonitions. Outwardly you may keep your thoughts to yourself as you can be very private about your life and others may find you tough to read. Difficult situations do not faze you as you are capable of conquering almost anything you encounter or have the ability to figure it out. You are diligent and dedicated in your undertakings and are able to wait as long as need be to achieve your most cherished goals. Saturn bestows excellent perception while Mars adds a strong drive, creating an unbeatable force to be reckoned with. However, you may need to be mindful of a tendency towards unyielding, inflexible, vengeful, bitter, callous, or even cruel behaviour. There is also a possibility of becoming power-hungry or preoccupied with money or success. This placement denotes a necessity to reform your inner yearnings and it will be imperative that you allow situations to develop as they may, rather than holding on to a desired outcome, person, or object; surrender and release. Your body is affected by this tendency as well and you may experience health issues that revolve around your bowels, colon, or elimination processes such as your kidneys or gall bladder.

It would be wise for you to use your superb financial instincts to invest, as you easily inspire faith and confidence in others. It is likely that those in advantageous positions will reach out to assist you monetarily at one point or another to help you actualise your dreams. In addition, try to be mindful of a tendency towards over-indulgence with lavish cuisine, as you are prone to extravagance in this area.
You embody a more traditional, conventional outlook on life and enjoy the tried and true ways of doing things rather than finding new paths just for the sake of change.

Material possessions, including real-estate, are your way of establishing a sense of safety.

Stress may cause issues with the health of your digestive track, particularly your stomach lining.

A traditional partner is not for you, as you prefer someone a bit more eccentric and unusual. Neither you nor your romantic partners want to walk on the same path as the general public, but rather create your own. It is likely that you or your partner enjoy surprising others with your unconventional preferences. Personal independence is an important factor in your relationship, and commitments may feel unnecessary to you. You may even seek out partners who are unavailable as these romantic involvements promise no commitment from the start.
Due to the unconventional nature characteristic to most of your relationships, your partnerships may baffle both yourself and others. Unique yet fascinating people tend to surround you.
It is unwise for you or your partner to attempt to dominate one another, as this will only cause problems. Try to find a balance between your independence and the time you and your partner spend with one another; you may both require much space for a relationship to work. Easily feeling trapped by any restrictions stemming from your partnership, you must be given a great deal of room to grow. Without this freedom, you may quickly and suddenly opt out of the partnership. Long-distance relationships may appeal to you, as this sort of partnership has a more relaxed feel to it and you may continue to live your life as you please.
Mental stimulation is an important quality that you desire from your partner, as you like a challenge. You also prefer that information is readily exchanged between you and your partner. You are most interested in an original individual who can be artistic, sociable, and not afraid to go against the crowd. An intelligent, eccentric wild child with a great deal of charm may be just your ticket.
It may be easier for you to engage in platonic relationships than something as involved as marriage, though when you do decide to settle down, you expect an idealistic partnership where you and your significant other are good friends. In fact, friendship is probably how you found your mate. However, this placement denotes an inclination towards frivolous affairs that provide a short-lived thrill but will cause conflict with your significant other.
One of the greatest challenges in your partnerships happens when personal growth occurs at a greater pace in one partner than in the other. This growth may be so extreme that the person that entered the marriage originally no longer exists.
In order to succeed in your relationship, both parties must allow one another to be independent beings and be supportive of each others need for space.
The work environment you find yourself in can have a large impact on your health and well-being. You require work conditions to be free of conflict and generally enjoyable, as you are extremely sensitive to the energy around you. You can soak up negativity if it is present and this will impact your health a great deal, whether the ailments are real or imagined. Alternative medicine may prove more beneficial to you than conservative methods. Be careful about colleagues harbouring hidden intentions; they may not be as wholesome as they seem. It is likely that you will expend too much of yourself for your job; try not to become a victim.
Your intuition is very strong, often psychic. You may even feel as though you visit other realms while you are sleeping. Having a strong interest in how and why things work the way they do, you are likely to be drawn to religious studies and philosophical topics.

Do not become obsessed with your own ideas but rather try to accept other points of view. You have an intense drive to get to the truth, desiring a deep understanding of everything you come across. You may go through a type of rebirth or regeneration through your dreams, spiritual or philosophical experiences, or travels. You may study too hard and cause yourself mental stress; try to pace yourself. In addition, be open-minded to listening to others rather than insisting that you are correct.
