Scorpio is the most intense sign of the Zodiac, and is associated with sexual activity and with the symbolism of death and rebirth. Their emotions run deep.

Scorpios have great personal magnetism and great powers of persuasion or even the ability to coerce others. Their will is strong, and they let nothing stand in their way of achieving their goals. They may suffer in life, but their pain leads to important personal transformation. They are very good at group dynamics, and working with the public.

Scorpios are a shrewd judge of other people's motives, and may be willing to use their special knowledge to their own advantage. Although they can be manipulative at times, when they work out their issues to be more in line with their own higher nature, they can take on the charismatic power of a natural healer, transforming themselves and society around them.

Scorpio by Element and Mode

The element related to Scorpio is Water.

The Water element is the feminine or yin energy of emotion. It corresponds to the Jungian typology of Feeling. Receptive and sensitive to subtle currents of interconnection, it flows through everything and connects at a deeper and more unconscious level than that provided by logical thought. Water people are tuned in to a deeper and subtler reality than other types around them. Their emotions range the gamut from fear and dislike to an unconditional acceptance and love of the world and the creatures they find within it. They can be security oriented and respond well to the solidity, direction and form provided by others. At their best they provide a powerful connection to the divine within themselves and each person in their surrounding milieu.

The mode of Scorpio is Fixed.

Fixed signs are in-taking rather than outgoing, receptive rather than originating. People with many Fixed signs tend to be stubborn and difficult to sway from their intended course of action.

Ruling Planets of Scorpio

The ruling planets of Scorpio are Mars and Pluto.

Mars is the planet of outward activity and animal passion. It rules Aries and is exalted in Capricorn. This fiery planet is masculine in action, versus softer more receptive Venus. When strong in the chart it can indicate a volatile temper, and also great courage. Its position indicates how your personality will assert itself, and what modes of activity will stimulate your physical energies.

Pluto is a force for change that can be destructive in its power. Pluto rules Scorpio, and is exalted in Leo. Pluto is related to will, and intense passion, and has a reputation for ruthlessness. As god of the underworld Pluto brings the deepest compulsions into the light. Its position indicates areas of life that must ultimately become transformed as part of the soul's evolution.
