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 1. 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.

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..

5 Of CupsThe typical Scorpio animal magnetism comes from its ruler, sexy Mars and Bootes the herdsman being a swarthy fellow, working close to the earth and driving those beasts forward. These folk are certainly very driven, but they glide to the top quite silently. Nobody notices them until suddenly, bam, they are there, right at the top. This gives them an advantage over their rivals because they are often underestimated at first.

The Agony & The Ecstasy

Scorpio decan 1 are the perfect invisible man, they make a great classic Scorpio spy because of their amazing ability to construct a psychic cloaking device. So even though some of them really do have ‘fatal’ written all over them, they seem to be able to convince otherwise. Spin-doctors and propagandists do well here too.

Scorpio decan 1 are made of true grit, they often risk life and limb for a cause they believe in. They also make excellent interrogators, relentlessly probing until they get an answer. If they do happen to fall on the wrong side, they can withstand a great deal of torture before they open their mouths. These folk really can take being stretched to the limit. Somehow their deep faith in whatever they believe in gets them through the most horrendous suffering….  

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.”  ~

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.

  1. “,,,and they need to come to terms with the cycle of being famished and regulating their satiation.”

    This definitely resonates with me, and I would like to explore the dynamic further. Can anyone make a recommendation in this regard? If you mean a reciprocation in evolution of past lives, I feel I am presently angry and taking revenge at the world for “unfairly” being imprisoned in a past life. My desire for freedom at all costs an (extreme opposite) reaction to this.

  2. Wow Marina! Super fantastic work as usual!! You Truly bring the Decans to life!
    One question however.. Is there a reason why the Mars and Venus in Scorpio Decan 1 was omitted in the Ebook?
    The other ebooks I have purchased from you on the decans do include both venus and mars as well..
    I have here and was REALLY looking forward to your reading on this! Hopefully I will not have to temper my seething desire for this! LOL 🙂

    1. Thanks Roberto, I will add Mercury, Mars and Venus at a later date. I just wanted to get as many of the decans out there as possible. I will probably have a discount option for those who already bought the smaller eBook. I’m redesigning the artwork a bit too as the old ones were a little dull. Sagittarius will be in fiery red to go with the fire signs etc etc. Eventually I will probably add Saturn, Jupiter and the nodes too.

    2. Oh Beautiful! Awesome! Thank you so much Marina! I totally understand as this certainly has been a painstaking labour of Love! But so well worth the wait!! More than in Gold!! In Stars!! I am so looking forward to the entire completed book to just dive in and get lost in it all!! This work is magic! Thank YOU for sharing…

  3. Hi Marina,
    How would a Sun Scorpio Decan 1 go with an Ascendant Scorpio D1 ? In business, or love. Or both.
    Thanks a lot.

    1. Double Scorpio!! Woo, the Sun Scorpio illuminates the Ascendant Scorpio’s road ahead. Watch out world! 😉
      Mixing business with pleasure could be intense tho.

  4. Hi Deborah. Yes there used to be more on here, but I have taken it off to rewrite it as part of an ebook. Some of the eBooks are already completed. Aries, Pisces and Aquarius are complete and Taurus is almost done.

  5. The commentary used to be longer, I still remember some parts…where is it? I really like your point of view. Maybe one day I’ll have a chance to make my astral map with you. Thanks!

  6. Ima Scorpio and it is a gift and a curse, I’m handsome but also intimidating I’m funny but can be too serious I’m open minded but a jealous type. Ehh and I’m with a Scorpio

  7. I love one of these Scorpios hard and confusing work at times, like a drug to me that I cannot give up

    1. I too, and agree with your comment. I can relate oh, so much!

  8. Best cosmic, astrological analysis of my Scorpio soul journey I’ve read (and I’ve read a lot).

    Four thoughts:
    1) The fixed stars as ‘stations of the cross’ of the Scorpio Decan 1 journey. Our souls signed up for this particular climb to the summit of our unique powers and cosmic purpose, and that’s why we have to intensity and toughness of soul we do — because we need it for our unique cosmic soul journey.

    2) The Sublime, a unique form of transcendence made of beauty and terror (said the Romantic poets), fits the Scorpio Decan 1 combinations of Mars power and intensity and Venus beauty.

    3) Dionysus — the ancient Greek god and hero (yes, and hero), not the fixed star. Dionysus is often compared to The Christ (Crux) because he dies and is reborn. There are big differences, however, in the process. Dionysus goes through the terror of breakdown and madness and death, and the awe and beauty of his own resurrection and rebirth, all on his own, solo, without the help or intervention of anyone else. So so so Scorpio, the Dionysian solo death-rebirth act.

    4) The Oak. Oak burns longer than any wood. The endurance of the passion of the fixed Scorpio. We can ‘carry a torch’ for a principle, a person, and a cause, longer than any other sign.

    1. Best thoughts so nicely bundled I’ve seen in a post. Got to know who’s worth fighting for though. Choose your battles and see you’re not alone in it all.

  9. Hm, I have Mars-Pluto-South Node conjunct in this decan. This resonated very deeply for me: “What I believe this represents is one having to bear the responsibility of psychic or prophetic ability.” On a few occasions I’ve been struck with prophetic sight especially in terms of death & illness. Its not easy being able to see so much about people, but it comes in handy. I have it up in the 10th house as well, so people sense it, but don’t know what to make of it, may Sagittarius stellium covers up some of the intensity.
