How well can you see in the dark? The sun is what our world revolves around, what gives our planet light, warmth and life. The light of the sun allows us to see and make sense of our surroundings. Every year, the Earth comes to the same spot relative to the Sun, and we have organized our calendars and celebrations to this cycle. As a result, our world figuratively and literally revolves around the Sun. The sign the Sun was in at your birth tells you what season your life revolves around, the way you individuate yourself, your own “light” that you shine forth.
Scorpio is a nocturnal fixed water sign ruled by Mars, which means that a person born when the Sun was in Scorpio individuates themselves in a way that is characteristic of Mars – powerful, tempestuous, dangerous. It’s the sign of the deadly assassin in the shadows, the vampy seductive femme fatale, and the things that go bump in the night. They’re survivors, shrewd and stealthy, secretive, suspicious, and stoic, stubborn, stern and striking, stormy, stinging and sometimes, a bit scary. Stereotypically, they have a brooding death stare and commonly, dark features, black hair, pale skin or tattoos and piercings. They look just somehow, dangerous. Emos, essentially. Although you sometimes you get the crazily intense bubbly blond Scorpio types too, and they can be just as intimidating. They’re the Slytherins of the zodiac, basically, a bit dark, a bit moody, powerful for better or worse, etc. The Sun is in Scorpio each year when the festival of Samhain is celebrated, a feast for the dead, where souls of the dead and other supernatural entities crossover from the Otherworld, which we otherwise know today as Halloween.
Scorpio Suns are pretty private, which is funny because Scorpio is traditionally associated with the genitals and anus, which we even call our private parts. You typically don’t walk around letting it all hang out. This is where our reproductive power comes from, but it’s also where we piss and shit. This kind of captures the two sides of Scorpio, it’s this place of great power, there’s this indomitable will to survive and the desire to penetrate through reality to get to the truth, but it also deals with the tawdry, sordid and profane, and even gross, obscene or gruesome parts of existence we just avoid. I mean, typically, you don’t talk about your masturbation habits or how heavily you menstruate or how many times a day you shit, how many abortions you’ve had. Typically you avoid those topics. After all, it’s only Mars that rules Scorpio, it’s not a place where any planets are exalted, there’s no classic “honor” in Scorpio. It’s always going to be a place you know is there but would rather avoid if you can, like a graveyard, or a dark alleyway. Scorpios are fearless and tend to get into risky situations, and they’re not afraid to take the low road. You want Scorpios on your side, let’s put it that way.
