Being a Scorpio or your Ascendant is Scorpio:
As a Scorpio Sun sign, you are the eighth astrological sign in the zodiac. This also makes you the second Water sign and the third Fixed sign. Pluto is your ruling planet and represented by the 8th house – ‘I transform’.
Your psychological nature is bilious with aggressive impulses that spur the transformation of your being and of any situation you are involved in. You are constantly struggling to assert yourself. You cannot refrain from testing others with cutting remarks, not because you want to hurt them, but because you want to know them better through their reaction; life and the feeling of aliveness are experienced through rebellion and tension. Your aggressive attitude may equate with sly inquisition as often, you remain silent, introverted and secretive, mulling over turbulent thoughts in the depths of your mind, leaving others puzzled by your quite strange behaviour.
You are secretive, powerful, domineering, resistant, intuitive, asserted, charismatic, magnetic, strong-willed, perspicacious, passionate, creative, independent, vigorous, generous, loyal, hard-working, persevering, untameable, possessive, cunning, ambitious, sexual, proud, intense, competitive but also aggressive, destructive, stubborn, anxious, tyrannical, perverse, sadistic, violent, self-centred, complex, jealous.
Foods you like are the same strong tasting food as for Aries: the hot and spicy ingredients, garlic, onions, shallots, leeks, various spices and aromatics; mustard, capers, Cayenne pepper and chillies and red meat.
In the body: Scorpio governs the sexual organs and the anus.
