Scorpio Decan 3 is ruled by Venus and the Moon (Cancer triplicity). The Sun creeps through the constellations of the Fly, Serpent, Wolf, Chameleon and Centaur from November 12 to 22. This decan contains all the items you would find in the musty forbidden forest. Every scary story has one. Here we have howling wolves, magic mushrooms, mythical centaurs, psychedelic chameleons and slithering serpents… What a trip! Of course tropical Scorpio is famous for magic and mystery, but Scorpio decan 3 does not deliberately set out to be sneaky or secretive despite the accusations. They are just naturally creatures of the night and are accustomed to creeping about so as not to disturb anyone.
These considerate fellows just like to blend in and make as little fuss as possible. Scorpio decan 3 is very close to nature and like the natural world, it does not have much of an ego. Blending in and harmonizing is actually the best way to survive. Do we see a row of sunflowers trying to outdo each other by growing the biggest heads, certainly not. In fact, drawing attention to yourself may actually get you eaten. This is how Scorpio decan 3 observes the human jungle, watching and living by instinct. They look and learn rather than read books.
Forest Lurkers & Karma Chameleons
Scorpio decan 3 are pack animals, so everything they do is motivated to protect the future of their breed. They make devoted parents and proud tribe leaders. Nature is not all pretty flowers and can be savage. A herd may have to sacrifice one of its weakest in order to appease a predator. While the lion is busy chomping away at a gazelle, the rest of them can drink at the waterhole peacefully. Sometimes of course there will be some literal human sacrifice from some individuals who see themselves as doing something good for the tribe as a whole, for example Hermann Goering (Ascendant 27º Scorpio). But it is chilling that Madeleine’s McCann’s abduction and toddler James Bulger (kidnapped by two young boys and murdered) is found here. There is also notorious Myra Hindley (Moon 23º Scorpio) and a few more other killers.
Patience is their absolute forte. They can get through the toughest endurance tests known to man. Try to torture and they will be the last ones ones on the rack, with no fingernails left. Their resolve is awesome to behold. And don’t even bother trying to win a staring contest, your eyeballs are melting while theirs seem ceramic. Stubborn, immovable yes, they are a fixed sign…. (Excerpt)
The tarot card associated with Scorpio decan 3 is the 7 of cups. Both Venus and the Moon as rulers are reflective and passive planets. This resonates well with the cards divinitory meanings which are; “As he stands mesmerized in front of the Seven Cups, he realizes he has much to contemplate and reflect on…. You could be attending counseling or psychotherapy sessions to help expose hidden motives and overcome childhood conditioning to expose your true personality. Then again, you may be using meditation or reading Self-Help books in an attempt to find your True Self.” teachmetarot.com

Scorpio Decan 3 ~ Planets & Angles
Ascendant Scorpio 3
Agena 24º (Heliacal rising star) ~ “ The natural ability in dealing with the ordinary, everyday things, and finding that this path leads to success or fulfilment. The gift of the common touch; a feeling or intuition for what people want or need, which can be of great benefit both to oneself or others.” [5a]
Toliman 29º (Heliacal rising star) ~ “The teacher, one who brings knowledge to others. To believe that the path forward is one of learning, education and organisation. A tendency to be dictatorial.” [5b]
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Scorpio decan 3 the ‘forbidden forest’ intrigue will be most notable in relationships. Being attracted to the forbidden fruit is highly likely with these folk, and they are very likely to get involved with highly ‘supernatural’ type relationships. Sometimes they themselves are the arch-seducers or they seem to attract their shadow in the shape of their partner. Despite their ‘Bad boy/girl’ image they are likely to be very popular as public figures and will really play their ability to be in touch with the common people (Wether they really are or not.)
Possibly Ascendant Scorpio 3 appeals to the renegade in all of us. Terence McKenna epitomizes the side of this decan that connects most with those musty mushrooms growing deep in the forest, he is also a teacher and guru figure too. We also find astrologers here, people who deal with the mysterious realm or the darker side of human nature. Ascendant Scorpio 3 have a natural sexuality combined with incredibly healing hands. They are also very sensitive to their partners needs and therefore very skilled lovers. These folk have the right balance of animal magnetism and sophistication so they never come across as being at all brutish. This is the zone of the Kundalini remember!

Sun Scorpio 3
Unukalhai 22º ~ “Many quarrels and disappointments, unfortunate life, seriously affected by death of family or friends.” [3a]
Agena 24º ~ “Mental activity, rashness, success, many friendships.” [3b] “To have the common touch; to be in step with the masses. To be raised in a working class world and feel proud of it, and, or to have the skills in dealing with the public in any profession. Matters to do with a popular person.” [5a]
Toliman 29º ~ “Envious, self-centred, slow but fairly successful progress, many enemies, loss of inheritance.” [3c] “To expand the world of others. To be a teacher or the perpetual student. A time when the voice of the people is forcibly expressed” [5b]
The Sun has no dignity here and the star interpretations can make this position difficult also. Brady does come out with the teaching aspect, which is probably as a result of traumatic life experiences. Coppock maintains “ Though often magnetic, those born with the Sun here struggle with themselves, for their desires if unchecked, will lead them astray.”  Excesses and addictions are some of the key words for the 7 of cups card. There are many tempting offers that the native might find it hard to refuse, so often the ‘forbidden fruit’ is literally offered to these natives on a plate. But ofcourse they are masters of seduction themselves. You might find these people slink up to you on the dance floor, lock eyes and give you the old snake charmers act. They tend to be rather good dancers too, understated and slinky. Sun Scorpio 3 are not the sort who will do frantic Travolta moves with much hand-waving, but will be the one hypnotically gyrating their hips in the corner, arms down.
Not everyone will notice them, only you, because it is you that they are working their magic on. This is how Sun Scorpio 3 operates in life. They blend in generally and don’t waste energy in trying to make every one like them. They make a few choice decisions in their life and work silently towards them until the mission is accomplished. Their plans are secret because they won’t risk anyone nabbing their prize before they get there. They also take quite a long time getting to their goal because they are planning the most risk-free strategy for getting there. Survival see. Their strategic moves and stealth action is also useful in sports or the military too.
