Ruled by Pluto
Key Phrase: “I Desire”
The Scorpio Sign
The eighth sign of the zodiac is Scorpio, and it is the only sign to have three symbols. This water sign is ruled by Pluto, god of the underworld, and is the sign of death and transformation. Scorpio, at its lowest energy, is symbolized by the scorpion: quiet with a deadly sting. The lower side of scorpio can be vindictive, destructive—not just to others, but to themselves as well–and explosive. The side of Scorpio that is the eagle rises above the vengeance and darkness, sailing and gliding effortlessly above worldly matters, but still sports sharp sight that misses nothing and deadly claws to be able to swiftly and efficiently destroy its prey. This highest vibe of Scorpio is the phoenix, an amazing being that has died and been reborn into a miracle of light and rebirth. Each Scorpio probably carries a little of each of these within them, while some lean more towards one than the other.
Scorpios are fixed water, and you know what they say about still waters running deep! They tend to have insight into human nature that most people do not possess. They have an intensity that is almost palpable when they are in the room. Fiercely loyal, passionate, sensual, and profound, their greatest challenge is to find the light within themselves. Once they do, they are a powerful force for good.
