Tell someone who knows astrology that Scorpio is prominent in your chart, and they will either smile knowingly or run away - or both. A sign of intensity and extremes, Scorpios do nothing halfway, and heaven forbid if you ever do anything to cross them. They have stingers for a reason.My moon sign is Scorpio, one of the more difficult lunar placements. I have a love/hate relationship with my moon sign; while it has its challenges, it has also given me great gifts. One thing is to be sure - living with this moon sign has not been easy! If Scorpio is prominent in your chart, then you know what I mean...here's an excerpt from Astrodienst:
- Fixed Water
- Personal Ruler: Mars
- Transpersonal Ruler: Pluto
- Detriment: Venus
- Fall: Moon
Certainly, there is nothing superficial about this sign, and Scorpios never take life lightly. This sign does not share the tidal nature of Cancer or the fluidity of Pisces. Its stillness, darkness and depth make it the most emotionally intense sign of the zodiac. This is a sign of extremes, ice or fire, black or white, never anything in between, and there is often a kind of obsessive intensity which can be either very destructive or immensely creative. Normally secretive, private and controlled, Scorpios, like volcanoes, will either be dormant or active. It is unlikely that you will ever get anything at all out of a dormant Scorpio - there is an impenetrability and a stillness, and even Scorpio eyes will give nothing at all away. This does not mean, of course, that nothing is happening below the surface. Quite the opposite. Scorpios are processing emotions all the time, and storing up impressions and experiences which will be used later. As a very controlled sign, Scorpio can afford to wait. Scorpio has a prodigious memory, a penetrating mind and a compulsion to probe under the surface. Detectives, depth psychologists, doctors and even potholers, and people working in submarines, 'under the surface', often have an emphasis of planets in Scorpio.
