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.
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 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 never seem to tire out emotionally and it is important that you are able to divert some of this intensity into other avenues so as to stay steady and sane. You find it difficult to be inactive and will usually behave in an intolerant, grouchy manner when you are forced to do things at a slower pace than you would like. You can be very moody and your anger tends to erupt with little warning. Compromising is not easy for you as you prefer to strongly pursue what you desire, despite this causing disharmony with your spouse or family. You have a strong urge to compete with others on even small matters, though this may not be apparent to you. You are self-sufficient and require the utmost freedom to do as you wish. God help anyone who tries to insist you do something or in which way you are to go about it. You are susceptible to accidental injuries due to trying to do much too quickly; be patient with yourself and others. Usually your demeanour is caring and kind, though at times you can be a harsh critic and are too outspoken about other peoples flaws or mistakes. Mentally you process things speedily and therefore you are likely to react with impatience and irritation when others are unable to comprehend things as fast as you. This placement bestows you with better than average health and recovery time.
There is a tendency towards selfish behaviour where you act in accordance to your own wishes without much thought to what other people may need. You can be arrogant in your wants and often will not assist people if it will be in any way inconvenient or costly to you. However, if you could learn to curb your selfish behaviour, you are able to use your dedication and drive to benefit anyone who may request your aid. If you are able to do this, you can go the opposite route and remove your own desire completely, passionately devoting yourself to a cause or another person. You must choose which journey is the right one for you.
You are driven, innovative, resourceful, and confident. Being successful is important to you though others may view you as demanding and overly assertive when you are working towards your ambitions. Opportunistic and unafraid, you regularly search for ways to learn and improve. Travelling can be a great opportunity for you to acquire what you search for. You are able to engage in risky ventures if you believe they will be profitable enough. This tendency may not do you well, as you can misjudge your abilities or the benefits of these endeavours; try to curb a desire to gamble as it can be your undoing.
Prone to exaggeration, you may express an ability to achieve more than is possible in actuality, causing you to fall short on the promises you have made. This happens due to your own misjudgement of what you can bring to fruition. As much as you are able to achieve, you will never be content with what you have done and strive to out-do yourself, convinced that you need to supplement your aim further. Instead, try looking inwardly for what is missing.
Rather than rushing around, take the time to create a plan and it will help you avoid accidents. Thinking ahead will also allow you time to pay attention to the way other people are feeling or the efforts they have made, as you can be blind to this and unintentionally hurt them. You are very competitive though you also likely to lose interest in whatever you have won once you have it in hand; you must understand that everything cannot always be a contest. If you are able to conduct your dealings in a more harmonious manner, you will find people much more responsive to you.
You possess a great deal of energy and have the skill required to succeed in athletics if only you can discipline yourself enough to make use of these talents. Your outlook is positive in general and this helps you succeed. Be careful not to spread yourself too thin due to indulging in extravagances; you must learn self-restraint. You may encounter problems legally if you are not cautious. When conducting business with people, find equilibrium between excitement and aggressive behaviour. Do not rush your projects; rather take time to make sure your work is done well instead of quickly. Your tendency to rush your work is often due to the restless tension you feel internally that insists you never stay in any situation for long.
You achieve your aspirations by being dedicated, diligent, forward-thinking, persevering, structured, and on occasion through coincidental good fortune; you tend to get lucky in attaining your goals. People feel they can trust you to be counted on as you are a dependable sort. What you promise, you make sure to deliver. This constancy draws others to you. Whatever you require to accomplish your endeavours seems to come to you somehow, even if it is in the last moments. You are able to achieve equilibrium between what is possible and what is actual. You are able to work well on a team; however you usually feel more at ease when working on your own. You are patient in your work efforts and persist regardless the duration, as you know the effort will be rewarded in the end.
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.
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 are an inventive, progressive, mentally quick, artistic, untraditional, intuitive non-conformist who feels comfortable being an eccentric, rebellious activist for change. Highly self-sufficient, you resent others giving you orders in any form. You can be inflexible when it comes to taking other peoples desires into consideration. It is imperative that you are able to live your life in a way where you have complete freedom. Deep down you believe you are unlike the normal crowd, perhaps even as though you are of a different species or from the wrong time period. You will rebel when you feel as though someone is trying to control you, particularly in a romantic partnership. You tend to run on a high frequency and can suffer from anxiety and nervousness. Relaxation is essential, as is channelling your inner tension creatively, in order to remain centred. You easily pick up on things that others may misshints, vibrations, and the like; your intuition is excellent. You trust your gut instincts to guide you. You are talented in finding ways to progress outdated systems. The brilliant mastermind within can be best expressed through discipline, self-restraint, and persistence.
It is likely that you attempt to evade your duties and all that you are afraid of. This inclination may lead you towards escapism via substance abuse or other means that can provide an outlet. You may be afraid of what you do now know, an end to your existence, or of a higher power. It is imperative that you face the things you are afraid of directly, as this is the only way to surpass them. Do not disregard the issues in your life, expecting that they will somehow disappearthey wont. The more you suffer the more you will learn to submit to the course fate has put before you, the more you give in to this the more likely you will be to reach enlightenment and redemption.
There is a good chance that you place too much value on acquiring material or monetary assets which can blind you to the things that truly matter. Ponder the tale of the one who gained the world yet lost his soul and re-evaluate what you feel is significant. Money does not buy true happiness, though this lesson may not come easily to you.
You doubt other peoples intentions, unable to trust most. This innate distrust may have been due to previous life karma involving matters in which you were betrayed somehow, losing your material assets and social status due to having cared too deeply for others or believing in them too faithfully. These sorts of difficulties occur to show us how insignificant monetary assets are and that we should instead focus our attention on doing the right thing regardless of what we gain out of it. It would be beneficial for you to appreciate the things you have but be able to lose them when necessary. Let go!
This position may also prompt ambiguity, misconception, false pride intellectually, and deceitful scams. Your motivation may be lost without you knowing the cause. Your escapist tendencies may also influence you in this way. It is possible that in a previous life you had used power as a leader in a way that was cruel and selfish. If you act selflessly, karma will see to it that you are treated well.
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.
Leos are typically regal, brave, loving, influential, giving, fun-loving, positive, motivated, faithful, and jovial (learn about compatibility with Leo here). Unfortunately, they can also be egotistical, narrow-minded, controlling, sluggish, demanding, and unaccepting of others. They prefer being engaged in activities that allow them to use their excellent organisational skills, artistic innovation, and managerial abilities. Leos can sometimes put on a tough façade, when deep down they are rather sensitive and vulnerable. If their significant other hurts them in a vulnerable state, they may suddenly shun the partner and behave in an ill fashion towards them.
Leos are often found with all eyes on them. They enjoy sharing tales and add a bit of pizzazz to their show; having fun is important to them. Though they would prefer to be kind-hearted, if they feel it is necessary to be heavy-handed, they will do so without hesitating. If they ever do behave in a mean manner, they will feel that it is only because they have the other persons best interest at heart.
Do not anger a Leo, as he will suddenly act as though he is the royal ruler of the land and you are his subject. They will need to show you their strength and bravado, but once the storm has passed, the lion will happily forget that there was ever an infraction.
When Leos are in optimal condition, they are caring, fun-loving, positive, and bring great joy to others. They can be very giving, though financial resources may be difficult for them to hang on to without them realising where the money has gone to.
Leos are usually healthy and can bounce back easily from physical setbacks. Be mindful towards fevers, as they can be prone to particularly high temperatures when sick. Usually optimistic, when sadness does hit them, it can hit hard. Luckily, they are quickly able to revert back to their cheerful selves. However, if they are suffering from a lost love, they can suffer deeply as heartbreak is the most difficult thing for a Leo to conquer. Heartbreak may lead to physical ailments of the heart.
A Leo must have a high regard for the person they marry, as otherwise the relationship with falter rather quickly. What matters most is that Leos know they are valued.
You are warm, considerate, amiable, positive, balanced, and socially pleasing. You are a wonderful companion to your mates and are gifted at making others feel cared for and at ease. While you are quite the people person, you are also very logical and rational, with good decision-making abilities, if only you could make up your mind. You enjoy artistic pursuits, especially that which may incorporate music; you may be interested in working as an entertainer. Social relationships are a necessity for you and you abhor any sort of conflict, especially emotionally. What you long for is harmonious interactions where you feel things are evenly balanced. You dislike manual labour and prefer to stick to white-collar professions. At times you may sacrifice things that are important to you just to keep the harmony or you may become elusive, where others cannot seem to get an answer from you one way or another; indecision can become a major problem for you. Inwardly you may be at war with yourself although you do not let others see this. Coming to a conclusion about something is challenging because you easily comprehend the different angles of each situation and wish to be just to each consideration. Be sure that you uphold your own values.
Detail-oriented with a quick, sharp mind, you are able to execute tasks in a painstakingly careful and thorough fashion. You are effective, investigative, sensible, and reasoned; you keep your feet on the ground. Your practical, rational nature gives way towards a possible career in mechanical or technical work, where you need to possess a set of specific abilities. Abstract reasoning is not particularly interesting to you if it cannot be applied in a handy, concrete manner. Though you are detail oriented and enjoy investigating everything that comes your way, there is a likelihood of being blind to subtleties; you need things to be expressed to you directly rather than having to assume or guess at hints. You excel in endeavours that require an exact, accurate thought process, precise technique, or effective, structured administration. There is a tendency towards being too hard on others to meet your perfectionistic requirements. Your strengths include dependability, flexibility, methodical approach, and attention to detail. However, you are also prone to getting bogged down with a negative attitude and cynical, prejudiced behaviour as well as having a tendency to grumble and gripe when things are not to your liking. Be mindful that you do not lose the big picture when focusing on the details.
In romantic affairs you are giving, loving, demonstrative, trustworthy, passionate, and adventurous. You despise petty behaviour in your romantic interest. What you search for is the knight in shining armour, or the noble lady whom you can admire and cherish, a person that you can look up to and respect, someone to be lost in. It is important to you that attention be lavished upon you and that you are well cared for and valued. Someone charming who knows how to sweet talk, will go a long with you; you desire to feel like you mean the world to your partner. Extravagance sways you positively and your romantic life is often filled with drama and excitement of one kind or another. You want your mate to make an impression. There is a tendency to exaggerate your emotions. You are trustworthy, fun, sympathetic, direct, charismatic, and generally appealing, though sometimes you will fall in love with the idea of love rather than the person. You may be idealistic and hold people to higher standards than they are capable of attaining, and therefore can find yourself nursing a wounded heart. It is more important to evolve your inner self than your physical self; be on the look-out for narcissistic tendencies.
Mars in Libra is a challenging placement and you are often unsure whether you would like to be assertive and dominating, having things within your control or whether you will prefer to avoid conflict at all costs, compromising everything you hold dear in the process. If Mars is positively aspected, you will be well-liked by others and enjoy a pleasant social life, especially with the opposite sex. However, if Mars is negatively aspected, others may view you in an unpleasant way and you will find yourself having to defend yourself as well as enduring challenging, unbalanced, unreliable romantic relationships where you manipulate others just for the fun of it. Either way, you will be strongly drawn to the opposite sex. One moment you seek harmony with others, the next you are baiting them into a rivalry. You strive to find a way to be self-sufficient and speak your mind, while at the same time work with others in a cooperative fashion. Often you become tense due to having to bend to others requests, when you would rather be free to do as you wish. At times you may find yourself frozen when you are unsure whether or not others will approve of your actions. Regardless, you do not like to be alone. You need to acquire your objectives by connecting to and working with people. Despite your dislike of disharmony, if you believe someone is being taken advantage of, you will speak your mind; this trait may lead to an interest in justice. You will shy away from any sort of extreme behaviour, as you need to keep balance in your life. You will likely take a steady pace to achieving your goals, rather than over-exert yourself. You are usually diplomatic, observant, eager, and easy to get along with though at times you may be touchy and start debating with others. You may need to work on your tolerance and negotiation skills.
You are aggressive, excitable, full of energy, and always ready to start on one of the many projects swimming inside your brain. You enjoy sharing your viewpoints with others and can effortlessly convince them to follow you on your endeavours. You are likely to be a leader and can easily see the entire situation at hand. However, it would be wise for you to learn how to wait for things to unfold naturally, rather than rushing in impatiently; try to think things through thoroughly beforehand. There may also be a tendency towards believing and stating that you can accomplish more than you realistically are able to. Take care to be more accepting of concepts that may not be your own. You are naturally very persuasive and would make an excellent salesperson. Be careful that you do not delude yourself about your capabilities as you can be overly optimistic and prideful.
You are disciplined, rational, and possess strong internal resilience and drive. You are able to understand the human race on a grand scale but have a difficult time with understanding the individual. It would be beneficial for you to develop patience for others and learn to let go of the past. You have an interesting way of combining uncommon methods while still keeping things in good order. Long-term planning can also be a strong suit of yours as you tend to intuitively see far into the future. You are able to easily view things outside the box, with a fresh new perspective. Often you can be cool, reserved, objective, and practical. However, you may also come across as unfeeling, spiteful, and overly-expressive of your views, possibly even aggressive, when your ideas are resisted.

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 expect that every piece of information be proven to you before you will accept it, as you search for truth in all matters. You try to live your life in a philosophical way, though you can swing to either being broad-minded, idealistic yet accepting or blindly and rigidly following what you have heard.

In addition, you possess strong wants, hopes, and aspirations.
This placement bestows a great deal of luck in romantic involvements and life situations where children are involved. Cheerful and enthusiastic, you derive pleasure from educating those around you. Your creativity will play a large part in your joy and prosperity, as you are strongly inclined to contribute substantially with your artistic abilities. There is a good indication that you will be fortunate in regards to children though you may need to be careful with an indulgent nature leading to gambling problems that may spur forth many rumours about your reputation.
You have an amazing ability to concentrate on the deeper things in life. You tend towards more serious thinking and can be very patient when you want to get things done right. You keep your mind well organised and can excel in strategy or mathematical concepts, which you may participate in as a hobby. You do not mind engaging in projects that you would need to be involved with for a long period of time. There is a tendency towards a pessimistic attitude, in addition to feeling lonely and possibly even depressed. You may find yourself having issues communicating with your family and your immediate community and this may cause you to isolate yourself from them. Instead, try to think positively and focus on moving ahead. Be mindful of oxygen issues as your lungs may be sensitive; try to keep air in your sleeping quarters circulating well.
Your life philosophy tends to be rather unconventional or ahead of its time. Your ideas are original; you come to them on your own accord rather than simply listening to what others tell you. You may choose to educate yourself in religious studies, cultural studies, or the metaphysical realm. Mentally you prefer to keep an open mind, gather information and knowledge, and ponder ideas others would never venture into. You are likely to encounter abrupt, unanticipated adventures and many of them on a mental plane as your intuition is strong and you can experience prophetic visions or dreams. Find ways to relax your mind and your thinking, as your intense mental activity can cause anxiety and possibly a mental collapse.
You are contemplative and your hunches are usually accurate. You may experience premonitions, though possibly in your sleep as these are rarely conscious. Feeling stuck in a partnership with another person can be an issue for you, and you probably feel as though you are alone in this world. It is likely that you feel a bond with a spiritual being of some kind and that you are part of a universal whole. You are probably interested in new age or metaphysical matters. There may be a theme in your life where you feel the need to either serve others or suffer the consequences of not doing so.

It is crucial that you convey mercy, tolerance, and affection to others.
Your professional life or public image is often affected by unanticipated events, especially situations related to world affairs. You may come across as aggressive in your dealings; allow yourself to develop tolerance, subtlety, and acceptance for others that may not always follow your fast pace. This is particularly important when dealing with the general public or society as a whole. This placement may elicit a need to either benefit society somehow or retreat from it altogether. There is also a possibility towards becoming power-hungry, though using a heavy-handed approach will often lead to failure. Use your many talents and abilities to improve humanity instead. You have a knack for understanding peoples true motivations and intentions and working in the background may appeal to you.
