Planets in Scorpio
Scorpion represents your Zodiac Sign. Some astrologers are of the opinion that Scorpio Sign is an introverted feminine Sign. Nevertheless, your nature is distinctly dissimilar, and as you grow in age, your nature keeps evolving, touching higher and higher planes. It can be quite a fascinating experience to remain in the company of Scorpios, but at the same time it can be dangerous as well.
At times, judging their real purpose can present a big problem. Some might consider you to be a very passive Sign, softly holding your grievances with much patience until you get a chance to pang back. However, the analogy apart, you have the ability to take risks and are more thrilled by what is concealed (secret) than what is obvious. Certainly, you’re not at all afraid to face big problems or challenges.
Astrology deals with ten planets, namely the Sun, the Moon (the two luminaries are considered planets in astrology), Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Minor celestial bodies, such as the Dark Moon, asteroids and the nodal axis, are also taken into account. Each planet has its precise function in the natal chart, and represents a specific energy. The planet’s action is influenced by the sign it tenants. It plays out primarily in the area of life indicated by the house where it is posited.
Scorpio Ruling Planet: Pluto (Mars)
In Roman mythology, three Gods Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto (Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades) drew to see which one which one of them would have to rule the underworld. Pluto ran the underworld all alone until he meet Persephone. He stole her and possessively made her his Queen. Pluto in Scorpio is what makes Scorpio obsessed with sex, death, birth, and rebirth. It’s Water element gives Scorpio deep complexity while being a Fixed sign gives it stability. Scorpio’s are also known for being very possessive with their loved ones. Pluto also gives Scorpio rage to answering all of the big questions they have in their life.
Mars (Ares in Greek mythology) is the God of war. He was regarded as "the father of the Romans". Many soldiers worshiped Mars and prayed to him for a successful battle. He was celebrated in festivals in both March (the month named after him) and October. Scorpio: Mars in Scorpio is not as prominent because Scorpio’s main ruler is Pluto. It is Scorpio’s watery charm mixed with this fiery sexual planet that makes this sign so dangerous for the opposite sex. Unlike the other water signs, this is the only one that has this fiery and powerful planet behind it’s strong emotions, making arguably the most powerful sign in the zodiac.
Water signs are gifted by being able to sense. Cancer uses its instinct, and Pisces uses its intuition. However, Scorpio operates on its perceptive abilities. Planets in this sign are detectives, experts at the delicate art of strategy. Your Scorpio planets sift through every situation for subtle clues, which they analyze carefully to determine what’s really going on. Because they’re good at spotting clues, they’re also gifted at sending equally subtle signals back into the environment, and at imperceptibly altering a situation by manipulating it with the right word or movement. Scorpio planets are constantly searching for intimacy. They want the real stuff from all encounters. No lighthearted Libra chit-chat—they want to bare their souls. They seek out intensity and crises. They can be relentless, obsessive, and jealous—remember that this is fixed water energy, so Scorpio feels things deeply and forever. Give your Scorpio planets what they crave: the opportunity to walk fire and to experience life-and-death situations. They’re wells of limitless energy.
