Scorpio Decan 1 ~ General Meaning

Scorpio decan 1 is ruled by Mars in both systems (Scorpio triplicity). The Sun drives through the constellations of the Herdsman, the Ship, the Virgin, the Cross and the Crown from October 23 – November 2.

Scorpio is probably the sign that is most type-cast as the baddie, so it’s not surprising that the decan ruled by the planet of war does indeed contain a few ‘malefics’. This decan is a sharp weapon, but it doesn’t mean that it will always harm. The only sharp instrument here is actually the spear shaft as none of sidereal Scorpio actually falls here.

The Agony & The Ecstasy

This is a bit of a paradox since this is the most Scorpio section of Scorpio using the triplicity system. The dark edge to this decan really comes from carrying the weight of the crucifix. The Cross represents one having to bear the responsibility of psychic or prophetic ability.

The constellation of Crux is listed as having an ability for divination and two of Scorpio decan 1’s major stars reside in this cross. Being able to tap into other dimensions gives one power that can be used for good or ill. With Scorpio decan 1, it’s either black magic or white magic. They don’t do grey..


This decan is associated with the tarot card the five of cups: Its divinatory meaning “brings sorrow, loss, grief and suffering. Its very presence indicates that you have suffered a crushing blow on an emotional level… We must all learn to accept loss as part of life yet we flail and rail against it.  We must trust that once we are prepared to let go, the Universe will replace our loss with something of worth and real value.”  ~

Scorpio Decan 1 ~ Fixed Stars

The first star we meet here is Miaplacidus 1º, it has no interpretation but Robson says of the constellation Argo.“Is said to give prosperity in trade and voyages, and strength of mind” The star is in the Keel, which holds the whole ship together like a spine and is always built first. With Miaplacidus rising one should be sturdy and robust. This star used to be the alpha star of defunct constellation Robur Carolinum. (Charles’ Oak, a tree famous for hiding Charles II after he lost a battle)


Scorpio Decan 1 ~ Planets & Angles

Sun Scorpio 1

The hunger aspect is very strong with the Sun in this decan, as the Sun blazes with a high libido here. The craving for sex is high, because it is almost like a last gasp of fertility before the season falls into the darkness of winter. Because the desires are so strong, the subject seeks to understand why they have such fierce cravings. Their obsessive behaviour then can be channelled into devouring information and attaining wisdom. For those who are less evolved, then the temptation to fall prey to their bestial cravings can be overwhelming. BBC children’s presenter and knighted DJ, Jimmy Saville was found after his death to be a serial child molester, rapist and sexual predator. His Sun was also interestingly on Gacrux in the crucifix.

The karmic burden on these folk is very high and they need to come to terms with the cycle of being famished and regulating their satiation. Sun Scorpio 1’s ego depends on their ability to conquer the object of their desires. Those who learn to rein in and temper their inner savage become experts in the fields of psychology and can greatly help others with addiction problems. If their partner does not satisfy them sexually then these folk can go greedy for glittery, golden luxury items instead. Saville also dressed in a garish and ostentatious manner, with massive gold medallions and tight, brightly coloured lycra tops.

  3. Hi Marina, I was hoping you could shed some light on Scorpio moon decan 1. I was browsing theastrocodex and stumbled upon this:

    “The least potent degree is the 3rd one. In case you have your natal Moon somewhere in the first decan of the sign, your Moon is functioning at the least amount of its potential power. Imagine that such a placement’s effect just diminishes the potency of the Moon’s energy. Such a placement may tend to bring out the negative traits of the planet, as the Earth’s satellite feels quite uncomfortable in such a dark place.” -theastrocodex

    Anyway, I’d love to hear your thoughts on Scorpio moon in the first decan!
