Scorpio – The Scorpion

Scorpio

The eighth sign of the zodiac

Its symbol resembles that of Virgo, but with an arrow on the tail — doubtless to represent the sting. It is symbolized by the asp or serpent, harking back to the serpent of the Garden of Eden, and indicating that the will governs or is governed by the reproductive urge. It is sometimes symbolized by the Dragon, and is frequently linked with the constellation Aquilla — the Eagle.

The Sun is in Scorpio annually from October 23 to November 22. Astrologically and astronomically it is the second thirty-degree arc after the Sun’s passing of the Fall Equinox, occupying a position along the Ecliptic from 210° to 240°.

It is the Fixed quality of the Water element: negative, nocturnal, cold, moist, watery, mute phlegmatic.

Ruler: Pluto.

Exaltation: Uranus.

Detriment: Venus.

Fall: Moon.
