Scorpio Traits

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 it influence will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others.

Scorpio Rising Decans

0º to 10º Scorpio Decan 1 Rising* (Scorpio Triplicity)

The agony and the ecstasy theme of this decan will be most notable in relationships. If these folk are artists then the torture, pain and disappointment suffered in their love affairs will be channelled through the arts. Love affairs will bring the trauma of the human condition into sharp focus. Themes could be the dilemma of resisting sexual temptation, betrayal and faithfulness. Marriage must never be dull. A very stable relationship might lack the depth of emotions that is craved by the tortured Scorpio 1 soul

10º to 20º Scorpio Decan 2 Rising (Pisces Triplicity)

There will be no way that these people can avoid getting involved in very karmic relationships. There is a compulsion to join unions where heavy debts must be repaid, which have been avoided over several lifetimes. When you put a foot wrong with a partnership during this incarnation, it may seem as if karma is immediately taking effect. Scorpio 2’s partners frequently accuse them of being hard to read and evasive. This is because Scorpio 2 are trying to prevent extreme reactions from their lovers. However this infuriating behavior has quite the opposite effect. Scorpio 2 often attract neurotic and dramatic spouses!

20º to 30º Scorpio Decan 3 Rising (Cancer Triplicity)

The attraction to the forbidden fruit is high with these folk, and they are very likely to get involved in highly ‘supernatural’ type relationships. Sometimes they are the arch-seducers, but mainly they tend to attract their shadow in the shape of their partner. Despite their ‘Bad boy/girl’ crushes, Scorpio 3 tend to settle down in later life with more stable, domesticated partners. The rough diamonds among them are very protective and they will defend their spouse to the ends of the earth. They are not very romantic with their words, but their tough Scorpio shell often hides a very mushy interior.
