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 Scorpio rising are typically reserved on the outside while intense on the inside, they are private and full of mystery, have a strong will, can be quiet, though they are brave and dedicated, unyielding, creative, independent, disciplined (though not always with their desires), and may be difficult to read. The soul of the individual with the Scorpio rising is fighting a battle between their lowly physical desires and enlightenment. In the end, the lower self must yield and be reborn, rising up from the ashes to a higher understanding. You will be involved on all levels, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Outside you seem cool and unfazed, though inside there are intense emotions ever-present; you are a very deep person. You insist to be made aware of other peoples secrets though you will not disclose your own, preferring to remain quiet as to your intentions. You have a sharp mind and enjoy investigative endeavours. You insist on penetrating every hidden cavern, understanding the ins and outs, why and how. You are very determined when you apply yourself, strong-willed, and can conquer any obstacle, even if the obstacle is you. You must move past any possessive, resentful, or envious tendencies. You are drawn to subjects that incorporate mystical topics, sexuality, the healing arts, or death. When you are good, you are very very good, but when you are bad, you can be a complete scoundrel. You must develop a way to forgive others as this is an important life lesson for you. Scorpio is ruled by both Pluto and Mars and therefore their 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 are mentally adept and prepared for anything. You enjoy a challenge and strive to absorb information from every turn. Reading is most likely the best way for you to take in new data and you will read anything that you can get your hands on. You are likely to be talented in mechanics and delight in taking on many endeavours at once. Manual labour is probably appealing to you and you may not have a preference in which hand you use with more skill. For you communication is done not only orally but also through hand gestures. This placement can bestow an aptitude for science or mathematics. However, a quick brain tends to facilitate a quick mouth too, and it would do you well to watch yours. Administering some diplomacy and thinking ahead before blurting out your first thought would also be beneficial for you, as you can be quite blunt. You enjoy friendly teasing and convey many of your jests via sarcastic remarks. You communicate your views forcefully and directly, in a straightforward, no-nonsense approach. You enjoy leading others and converse easily and extensively with others, even if you havent a clue about what you are discussing. You also like to find the faults in other peoples debates. Your assertive communication can at times rub others the wrong way as you often say too much, too powerfully. Due to your strong communication, you would do well working in sales or law. You can be very persuasive because of your powerful communication style. Try your hand at writing critique or dark comedy, as you may find a hidden gift. You tend to be self-sufficient, dedicated, brave, energetic, and love challenging your mind. However, make sure to take a moment to reflect on what you wish to say before you say it, as you can easily hurt others through your tactless mocking.
You have a warm demeanour and other people tend to think fondly of you. You are charismatic, tender, caring, compassionate, pleasant, and always willing to lend a helping hand. You try to be mindful of other peoples emotions. There is a gift for creativity of some form and you tend to avoid conflict or confrontations, preferring to keep things agreeable. A lovely atmosphere is essential to you and you take pride in the way you look personally as well. Luck seems to follow you as good experiences tend to be drawn to you and whatever you require just seem to come to you. You strive for a pleasant, relaxing, and lavish environment as you feel it is essential to your happiness. The place you live must be beautiful. You are not one for manual labour. There is a strong interest in artistic pursuits. You rarely feel lonely as it is easy for you to attract others due to your out-going and friendly nature. You enjoy expressing your affections but only feel comfortable doing so if the other person is demonstrative as well. Your words are like honey and you know exactly what to say to get on someones good side; be mindful that you do not use this gift selfishly as manipulation comes far too easily to you.
You may express yourself in an eloquent and clever manner, but you tend to keep to shallow waters, never venturing into the deeper emotions that some may be fond of. You are also not likely to stick with anything for very long, have trouble remembering things, and do not have a stable pattern of thought. You are indecisive, anxious, and prone to overthinking. Your high-strung nature can rub people the wrong way at times. You enjoy talking about people when they are not around and can spin a story to better suit your needs at the moment. You are interested in where others have been, how they feel, what they think, and why. You listen to them and people naturally divulge their private thoughts to you when they may not be so open with someone else. Previous experiences are particularly fascinating to you. Historical events in both your life and the lives of others are important to you and you readily share and listen to these tales. Archaeological or genealogical topics draw you in, as well as anything pertaining to myths. You feel almost as though you are reliving these experiences yourself.
You must find equilibrium between your mental state and your emotional state as you tend to swing wildly from one to the other. Your thinking is sharp but unfortunately so is your tongue, and this creates hurt where there did not need to be any. Try to think before you speak and form your words in a more diplomatic fashion. Use both your logical thinking with your sensitive emotions. Your nervousness and inner tension can create frustration for you internally that you often take out on others. You crave genuine care and understanding.
You are controlled and patient, able to persevere through difficult times and put forth a great deal of effort to attain your goals. You endure where others would falter. Innately, you understand that nothing worth having is given without some sort of sacrifice and you are willing to invest your time and energy fully when you have committed to an endeavour. The things you strive for are firmly held in reality and you will usually approach them in a systematic, organised fashion. Highly ambitious, you would make an excellent leader and administrator. However, you are most comfortable working out of the lime-light and produce the best results when on your own. You have a good head on your shoulders though you may sometimes work at a slower pace than others. This slower work pace is likely due to you not wanting to miss any details in your work. Anything you start on, you intend to go the distance. Be careful not to become resentful from holding in your frustrations; find a way to express these upsets to those that have caused them and then let them go. You are a good mix of daring yet cautious. In your past life, you were able to find equilibrium between what you wanted in the moment and your duties. Socialising is difficult for you as you are usually a bit distant with others. Despite your ambitions, you are not power-hungry but rather just wish to do a good job.
You are able to focus yourself exceptionally well and are capable of great self-control. Your mind can attain amazing feats due to these talents and your organisational abilities also aid in providing structure for your plans. It may take you longer than it would take others to think through a situation but once you do, you understand it completely and deeply. You prefer to take a more sombre attitude in life, working hard instead of playing around light-heartedly with others. Mentally you are detail-oriented and do not mind completing tasks that are too dull and monotonous for others. You do not beat around the bush when it comes to business and are a clear, direct communicator that portrays themselves as reasonable and practical; you would make a fine administrator. Others know they can depend on you to come through on your promises as doing things the right way is important to you. You do best focusing on one area and specialising in it, versus trying to learn a little bit about many fields. Solitary learning is likely more effective for you than traditional methods, as you require time to fully absorb and think through the information. You may be good at critical thinking due to your excellent ability to find loop-holes in peoples reasoning. Careers that require a systematic way of thinking are right up your alley. Mentally you are disciplined, reasonable, dutiful, exacting, and precise. Physically you are healthy and heal quickly from any ailment you encounter.
This aspect presents you with a chance to attain a higher reasoning in spirituality by self-sacrifice and working diligently to aid others. You will be able to put your necessities on the back burner to do what needs to be done for those loyal to you and this kind of service is happily done by you. You can easily combine your idealistic views with realism in a fantastic way. You will often remove your emotions from a situation so that you may finish what youve started. Any dream you aspire to, you will put forth a great deal of effort to accomplish. You are able to get by on mere scraps when you feel it is needed to achieve your aim. Imaginative applied artistry is your specialty. This aspect implies that the native is protected spiritually by karma from a previous life where they had aided others.
Emotionally you are fully charged and this intensity may have a negative impact on your health physically. Try to pace yourself and start to do one thing at time. It is not always easy to share living quarters with you as you often lack patience, become easily agitated with others, and behave in a grouchy manner. It is almost as though you go LOOKING for arguments. A bit like a spoiled child, if you do not get your way, you show your displeasure with fits of rebellious resistance. It would be beneficial for you to keep physically active and disperse the enormous amount of restlessness within you. You are naturally assertive and spirited, easily fighting for the things that you believe in or for others that are being taken advantage of. However, you must develop self-restraint if you are to reach your full potential. Competition spurs you on and you are driven to beat out all others in the game of your choosing or even just in general. Sometimes attracting with honey is far more conducive to accomplishing your goals than using brute force; be more diplomatic when interacting with people. You work diligently, bravely, and energetically. Try to be more lenient on yourself and others when something goes array as no one is perfect, not even you. Sometimes you have built up such a name for yourself that you do a complete turn-around and laze about, expecting your previous work will tide you over. Your anger may be explosive at times, especially when you are wounded on an emotional level, and you must find a way to restrain yourself. Try to think through your feelings before they take over. Your general lack of patience and constant rushing about makes you susceptible to accidental injuries, particularly involving heat or sharp objects. You can be reckless because you do not plan your actions ahead. You have a negative reaction to any sort of perceived restriction on you and can be a bit of a rule-breaker. As a leader, it is imperative that you curb your dominance or you will be seen as a tyrannical dictator rather than a leader. Vengeful thoughts are not healthy for you and you need to release your anger towards others for their offenses. It is likely that you will be wasteful with your financial resources and can be prone to dishonesty.
You are very imaginative and visual, with a great ability to think outside of the box when an issue needs solving. However when you do look for resolutions, you tend to take the route that will avoid confrontations, instead opting for ways that will keep harmony. You are a humanitarian and enjoy aiding those who may not have been blessed with many opportunities; helping others in this way is deeply spiritually fulfilling for you. There is a talent here for dramatization, especially in the arts. In order to balance your mental and emotional states, it would help you to engage in this artistic talent and direct your energy productively. This outlet can also help you to keep your feet on the ground, rather than allowing your mind to run off into a land of fantasy. Turning fantasy into something tangible can happen for you due to your sensible nature; you couple idealism with practicality. Spiritual mysticism appeals to you and you may find yourself dabbling in the subject when opportunity presents itself. Others are drawn to your magnetic essence, particularly people who require aid of some sort. You can assert yourself when needed, though you do this in a tolerant, accepting, and caring way. Good past life karma bestows safety from secret adversaries who are intending to harm you. Innately you understand that if you continue working patiently and diligently, you will acquire what you are after. Sympathetic and sensitive to others suffering, you truly care for any living creature, human or otherwise, though you must be mindful not to allow others to take advantage of you by way of conjuring up a sad tale just to play on your sentiments. Being around water will soothe your mind and spirit, and therefore you should strive to be near water as often as possible.
It would be beneficial for you to develop tolerance and patience when you encounter opposing opinions or views from others. People may find you egotistical and self-absorbed. The key to attracting others is to practice being humble instead. You have an instinctual knowledge of what needs to be done and how to go about it, however you can often be unaware of the amount of sacrifice you may be requiring from other people or what they may require. You may arrogantly go about behaving as though you can do no wrong, and this causes tension for others when they pick up on this aura; no one is infallible. Keep yourself open to what other people bring to the table; show them that their ideas are welcome. Do not give way to idealistic fantasy and try to be accepting of peoples beliefs. Use your ability to lead others to their benefit rather than for your own self-indulgent needs.
You have a tendency to make yourself miserable due to deeply rooted anxieties over being unable to support yourself and possibly losing whatever material possessions you have acquired. This concern distresses you to such a degree that you pinch your pennies, worrying that any moment now it can all come tumbling down. As the anxiety increases, you find yourself sacrificing your excitement, your giving nature, and your trust in the world. Try to relieve your apprehension by relaxing more and doing the opposite of your inclination; GIVE. Do not lose trust in the universe to look out for you and keep you safe. Have faith and you will find yourself surrounded with what you need.
There is a possibility of setting your goals higher than you can achieve. This sort of mentality sets you up for a fall and when you do inevitably fail, you are unable to hold onto your initiative and motivation to continue with your aspirations. Keep in mind that you can accomplish a lot by taking things one day at a time; slow and steady wins the race. Allow yourself a realistic timeframe to aspire to, as time is the one thing you have the most of; do not fight against it, but become in sync, flow with it. Dismissing your aspirations will result in endlessly jumping from on unfinished project to another; learn self-restraint and complete the things you begin. You may feel an internal tension for stimulation which can have you trying to do too many assignments at once. The most important thing for you to learn is to be satisfied with yourself despite your possible imperfections.
Those born in your generation have the ability to be of aid to humanity as a whole. Let your intuition guide you in assisting others.
You have a large amount of self-control and are proficient at denying yourself any temptations. Your outlook on life is sombre and stern, which can at times lead to emotional despair. You have strong will-power and are able to persevere to achieve your goals. However, you must be mindful not to use dishonourable tactics while climbing the ladder. Others are not merely obstacles for you to conquer, but actual living beings with goals just the same. Karma will punish you for dishonourable conduct and the more you abuse others to rise above, the further away success will be. This placements insists that you act honestly and morally, keeping to the unspoken rules of good conduct. You cannot skip ahead to achieve, you must take each step at a time; thinking otherwise will result in fate teaching you a lesson. Also, do not be afraid of things changing as this will allow you room to develop yourself and enhance your abilities. It is important for you to allow yourself to change and grow readily, for if you resist fate will create situations that will compel you to change in ways you may not enjoy. As much as you may wish to defy or ignore these changes, you must surrender as change is meant to guide and teach you. If you do not succeed, try not to harbour any resentment. These loses will assist you on your path to evolution. To give up would be to forfeit possibilities.
You are highly imaginative and can easily visualise whatever you can think up. You are able to make your fantasies come true by applying your excellent reasoning abilities. Topics that are related to metaphysics, the supernatural, or alternative medicine tend to appeal to you and you enthusiastically explore them. It is also possible that you are able to heal others by using your hands. You have an amazing awareness of what is going on in your mind on a subliminal level and ability to project it outwards. There is a large amount of artistic talent in this placement and when you feel properly motivated you can create truly inspirational pieces. Science, and its systematic approach, feels foreign to you and you do best in the creative realm, learning by being exposed rather than by traditional methods. Make an effort to visit areas where you can spend time near lakes, the ocean, or other bodies of water as they are a calming effect on your spirit. Extremely sensitive, you have accurate intuition and are easily inspired. It is possible for you to communicate with the spiritual world through your subconscious while asleep.
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.
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.
Emotionally delicate, careful, and possibly reserved about opening up to others. You find it difficult to convey the way you feel to others, even those that you may have strong feelings for. On the outside, you prefer to show your cerebral side. You are more likely to show your affections by doing acts of kindness for the person, rather than directly stating them, and outward romanticism isnt your style. Being the recipient of grand gestures of affection is also uncomfortable for you as you either feel unworthy or as if the person is not being genuine. Due to your discomfort with displays of warmth and affection, others will tend to view you as more cold and reserved than you may feel inside. It is also possible that your high standards push people away and it would be beneficial to you to develop tolerance and appreciation towards others even if they are not infallible; try to be lenient with your own mistakes as well. Your insistence that things be always perfect may be the cause of much unhappiness for you. You are often diligent, dependable, cautious, intuitive, realistic, and sensible; this is especially true in regards to your feelings. Practicality, precision, and intelligence are likely to play a large role in your life. You have a gift of being able to size up a situation and quickly determine the most effective way to get the job done. This ability allows you to do well in a caretaking or administrator role. Be mindful not to become too exacting and demanding over the little things. You enjoy aiding people, though you are often unable to comprehend their deeper emotional needs. It is important for you to learn to be more accepting as this will allow you to better assist others.
You are able to see possibilities in a fantastic way; grand schemes for the future, fuelled by enthusiasm for idealistic endeavours. Always looking forward, you are more concerned with possibilities than the tried and true; abstract ideas are your forte. You seek knowledge and are particularly fascinated with spirituality and political or religious topics. It may be challenging for you to complete your projects as you can be impractical and dislike attending to the mundane matters that are a necessary part of all developments; your focus tends to dwindle once you lose interest. Mentally you require a lot of independence to go your own way, though you often think along conventional paths. You are likely to take risks and gamble at opportunities. People do not need to guess what you are thinking or where they stand with you, as you are apt to tell them exactly whats on your mind in no uncertain terms. Youre a straight shooter; for you, the fastest way to get from point A to point B is a straight line. Be mindful of speaking too quickly without thinking things through first, as this can cause you, and those you care for, undue stress. Developing a more diplomatic way of expressing yourself can be very beneficial to you as you can be tactless at times. You are likely to excel in business or any field where you are promoting due to your natural ability to influence others. You are sharp, spontaneous, and adaptable. It is likely that you will be involved in more than one assignment, job, or school course at one time. Standing still is not for you as you would much rather travel the world and experience as much as you can, learning and improving yourself continuously.
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 are ambitious in your efforts to attain an idealistic dream where you are able to go on random new adventures while broadening your mind. Striving for the top, you would be quite dissatisfied living a life that is the same day in and day out. You need to feel that you are always reaching your potential, gambling with opportunities if need be. Optimism is inherent in your character and you have a strong belief in your abilities to achieve whatever you set out to do. Adaptable and confident, nothing can keep you down for long as you will swiftly recover and move on to the newest fascination with eager enthusiasm. Your positive attitude is infectious and draws in the very people who can help you succeed in your endeavours. It is important that you stay realistic to what you can actually accomplish as your belief in yourself to do it all, can at times be impractical. There is also a tendency towards piling too much on your plate and not being focused enough to finish your projects; your attention may wander easily at times. Follow through can be a challenge for you though it is important for you develop this trait to achieve your aims; you will likely need to go through many disappointments before learning to hone your patience and persevere. You do not take well to boredom. Friendly rivalry is fun for you and you are likely to spend a good deal of your time playing sports; your energy is high and you must find a physical release for this. You are out-going, spontaneous, motivated, self-sufficient, optimistic, and enjoy being involved in a lively debate as well as traveling abroad. You are prone to exaggerating details and may be blunt, aggressive, argumentative, smug, loquacious, bigoted, and deceitful. Religious and philanthropic endeavours highly interest you and you may pursue humanitarian efforts.
You are a diligent, effective worker and possess good executive abilities. You are capable and will pull out all of the necessary stops to accomplish the goals you have set for yourself. Brave with immense internal fortitude, though you tend to keep your secrets to yourself. People are irresistibly pulled towards you. Assertive, passionate, and independent would describe your character. Mentally, you can be very energised and productive. However, there is a tendency towards over-indulging in sensual pleasures, including extravagant cuisine, and this may create many problems and health challenges for you. You are likely fascinated by the mystical realm. A skill in healing others may develop. Channel your drive towards enlightenment and benefiting mankind as a whole, possibly through philosophical means.
A strong leader, with excellent administrative and managerial capabilities; you know when to be tactful. You are independent, traditional, well-organised, and proficient. You tend to be more reserved emotionally, seeming to others as aloof and uncaring. Affection is important to you, though you do not know how to go about acquiring or expressing it, instead you remove yourself from others. You feel a sense of obligation essential when love is present, and you find yourself preferring to do something for someone or present them with gifts, rather than giving them what theyd really like, yourself. However, there are times when you can be harsh, temperamental, and envious; you must be mindful not to use dishonest tactics when realising your goals. You prefer to be respected for being effective and proficient. In health matters, you are susceptible to diseases of the heart.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The Houses in astrology are the stage. They ask the question where? Where is the action? In the home, in health, in the career or in the marriage, to name a few. The Houses tell the story of where the action is happening, what type of people are involved and what sort of environment it is.
You feel an urge to be of service to humanity. This may be particularly challenging for you, as you prefer to retreat and hope that others will somehow come to save you from yourself. There is karma from a previous life that forces you to look closely at yourself and the destructive tendencies you carry. You intuitively sense that everything in the universe is tied together. It is likely that you will need to learn to believe in yourself, as your confidence is often low. People with health issues, whether this be physical or mental, tend to draw you in as you seem to resonate with them somehow. You may have premonitions or be interested in new age topics or the metaphysical realm. There is a possibility that you will act as a victim, ready for sacrificing yourself at any moment.
You find security in your philosophies and beliefs. You tend to daydream about a life different from your own; the grass is always greener. Often thinking on the deeper meaning in life, you strive to find new ventures which propel you to go on prolonged adventures, whether these travels are mental or physical. Interested in a variety of topics and subjects, you would make an excellent educator as you can muster up heart-felt enthusiasm for the matter being discussed. It is possible that you have prophetic dreams. You are likely to be interested in a career that involves higher education, religious or philosophical studies, travelling, foreign affairs, moral values, or law. You may need to relocate to an area far from your birth place in order to succeed in your endeavours.
Born with a natural thirst for knowledge, you are interested to know a little bit about everything. You are inquisitive and clever, having a talent for witty, eloquent communication in all forms and always enthusiastic to converse about your array of varied interests with others. A high-strung personality may help keep you slim, but you must watch out for nervous disorders as your nervous system is highly sensitive. Luckily, you are also very adaptable which may help reduce your anxiety.
Rather independent, you prefer spending time alone and often withdraw from social contact. You enjoy doing what you love in private, and may be prone to secret love affairs. Be mindful not to get carried away with substance use or sensual pleasures, as this can destroy you. With an inherent empathy towards others, you are always happy to come to anothers aid. It is likely that you can be taken advantage of by those that pretend to be worse off than they actually are. You are disinterested in what society believes success should be. What you most desire is to comprehend a deeper sense of purpose in your life. Rarely do you express your true emotions to others. It is probable that you are interested in fortune-telling, premonitions, new age topics, and the like.
You encompass a natural exuberance of physical energy. This vitality can sometimes become so intense that you engage in rash, reckless behaviour when you should be exercising caution. Having such a strong mars placement bestows you with confidence and an assertive attitude towards life. You are rather self-sufficient with a good aptitude for organizing, though you can have trouble with patience at times. Take care to watch for accidents, especially around the head region as you are particularly prone to facial wounds and high fevers.
You are a humanitarian and hold strong ideals for a better tomorrow. There may be someone in your life who seems to be looking out for you and may come to your aid when needed. You care deeply for mankind as a whole and are eager to provide assistance to others, especially when they are particularly down on their luck. You may be drawn to a career in the medical field or with the prison system. Prosperity will usually happen midlife, and this will be a calm, easy occurrence for you. Due to your highly idealistic nature, you may be a tad impractical at times. Try to focus clearly before implementing concepts.
Your philosophical views tend to be rather conventional and you feel strongly about them. So much so, that you may criticise the beliefs of others. You find it easy to concentrate on in-depth topics and tend to question religion and the existence or role of a higher power. Travel adventures often do not go according to plan, with many interruptions and challenges along the way. Dealing with foreign cultures may also prove irritating to you, though try not to concentrate on these difficulties too much and learn to reserve your energy.
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.
Your career does not tend to follow the usual path; instead you will encounter odd shifts and circumstances revolving your journey towards success. Be careful to stay practical in your endeavours as you are easily swayed into an unrealistic mind-set, daydreaming with rose-coloured glasses on, instead of seeing things for what they truly are. Creativity in one form or another is likely to be part of your profession and you may find yourself involved with art, photography, pharmaceuticals, entertainment, advertising, humanitarian or charitable efforts, or metaphysics. Publicly, your reputation may swing from one end to another, often without a foreseeable cause. It is possible that you felt unwanted or excluded by either of your parents.
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. Very independent in your own beliefs, you may need to be careful not to brush off the beliefs of others as this would be unfavourable to you in the long run. 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.
