These horoscopes are most accurate when read for your ascendant, but if you have your Sun plus a stellium (2 or more planets) in this sign then you will find that these horoscopes will ring true for your Sun also. All mainstream horoscopes are written using solar houses, which, in others words, is writing for your ascendant. However, the majority of astrologers won’t tell you that because they realise most of their readers will not know their ascendant. If you do not know your ascendant please use this free chart maker to find it. Once you have done that you can also read more about your rising decan and star too! It is the most personal point of your chart and the only one (Along with your ruling planet) that really describes you personally and your incarnation for this lifetime. Please read my The Zodiac Decans ~ Astrological Use & History post for greater understanding in using the decans in general.
THE SCORPIO INCARNATION
Ascendant Scorpio 1
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decans 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 1 the agony and the ecstasy dynamic will be most notable in relationships. If these folk are artists then the torture, pain and disappointment suffered in their love affairs will be channeled through the arts. Writers will bring the trauma of the human condition into their plot lines. Themes could be the dilemma of resisting sexual temptation, betrayal and faithfulness. Ethics and how to best serve god are also possible. It is not surprising to see Gandhi and Padre Pio in the list below, expectantly the latter. Padre Pio actually had Acrux as his rising star!
The Padre is most famous for bearing the stigmata, the permanently bleeding wounds of Christ’s crucifixion in the palms of his hands. As a child, Pio slept on a stone floor with a rock as a pillow. Pio was often in severe pain due to illnesses which brought about out-of-body experiences. Friars in his company had reported seeing him levitate off the ground in a state of ecstasy. Kubrick’s last film ‘Eyes wide shut dealt with the sexual underworld of New York, orgies and bizarre sex rituals.
ASCENDANT SCORPIO 1 EXAMPLES: Isaac Newton, Mohandas Gandhi, Padre Pio, Oliver Stone, Stanley Kubrick, Grigori Rasputin, Giacomo Casanova, Napoleon 1st, Beethoven, Israeli Independence, Caitlyn Jenner, Leonard Nimoy, Natasha Kinski, Grace Kelly, Colin Firth, Katherine Hepburn, Charlton Heston, Ewan McGregor, River Phoenix, Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise, Tyrone Power, Sid Vicious, Julio Iglesias, Enrique Iglesias, Midge Ure, Gary Numan, Adam Ant, Jay Kay, Bill Haley, Divine, Chuck Berry, Chaka Khan, Melanie B, Robin & Maurice Gibb, Mike Tyson, Uri Gellar, Christian Dior, Johnny Carson, Victor Hugo, Andre Citroen, Paloma Picasso, Paul Cezanne, Maurice Ravel, George Orwell, D.H Lawrence, Edgar Allan Poe, George Sand, Mark Twain, Bertrand Russell, Barratt/Browning Davison.
Ascendant Scorpio 2
Zuben Elgenubi 15º ~ “Conjunct the Ascendant, this star could mean rise in fortunes, followed by a downfall. There is also an indication of danger coming about in connection with water.”
Zubenelschemali 19º ~ “Honor, preferment, good fortune.”
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decans 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 2 the spiritual accountants and poker-faced behaviour will be most notable in their romantic life. It will be hard for these folk not to get involved with very karmic relationships. They are drawn to unions where there are heavy debts to be re-paid, that have been avoided over a few lifetimes. During this incarnation it may seem that all partnerships swing from one extreme to the other very quickly if they put a foot wrong, like karma is working straight away.
Their partners often accuse them of being hard to read and evasive, but this is because AC Scorpio 2 are trying to avoid extreme reactions from their lovers. This infuriating behaviour often has quite the opposite effect and AC Scorpio 2 finds they attract very dramatic and neurotic spouses. Sometimes they themselves are the drama kings or queens. In the later case AC Scorpio 2 will attract icy cool partners to whom they become quite obsessive in their quest to unlock the secrets they think their lover is hiding. Sigmund Freud is quite a good example of someone who was quite obsessive in his quest to understand the psychology behind the sexual drives of humans.
ASCENDANT SCORPIO 2 EXAMPLES: The Vatican, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Margaret Thatcher, Sigmund Freud, Richard III of England, Marquis De Sade, Mata Hari, Rudolf Steiner, David Lynch, Clint Eastwood, Michael Douglas, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Natalie Portman, Diane Keaton, Robin Williams, Jim Carrey, Johnny Weissmuller, Katy Perry, Aretha Franklin, Beyonce Knowles, Bjork, Keith Richards, Ozzy Osbourne, Bryan Ferry, Prince, Jimmy Page, Sandy Shaw, Shania Twain, Neil Young, Geri Halliwell, Missy Elliot, Dannii Minogue, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Marcel Duchamp, Paul Klee, Herb Ritts, Marc Chagall, Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Claudia Schiffer, Joanna Lumley, Harry Secombe, Barbara Windsor, Sarah Ferguson, Chelsea Clinton, Bear Grylls, Devi Poolan, Gloria Steinhem, Douglas Fairbanks, Eddie Kid, Republic Of Italy.
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 (Whether 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 partner’s 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!
