study group application - Scorpio in your life


Hey guys,
Everyone seemed to like the suggestion of exploring the "sign of the month" in their own personal birth charts. So I figured I would go ahead and start it up. If you don't have a copy of your own birth chart, then go to www.astro.com. You can obtain one there for free. If you need to remember the attributes of Scorpio and the 8th house, then please check out the main study group thread. And finally, don't be embarassed to put out your opinion of what something might mean! We're all here to help and teach each other - right? Right. So here are my planets relating to Scorpio:

Uranus in Scorpio
Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn in my 8th house
Scorpio is the cusp of my 11th house

I'll have to come back later with a better stab at what it all means...

But first of all, the stack up of planets in my eighth house demonstrates my intense interest in the occult (hey, I'm here right!).

OK,Here's mine:


No planets in Scorpio
Venus in 8th house (read it somewhere that this signifies peaceful death. )
Scorpio is the cusp of the 9th house.(this,I'll need to find out)

This is what I've learnt before:
Planets==>Energy
Signs ==>Style
House ==>What/Where

eg.Moon in Aries in 1st house
=Developing an assertive (Aries style) personality(1st house-what/where) will help you to find inner security (Moon energy)

I have Moon in Scorpio in my 1st House.

The first House rules the Self. It brings out qualities that tell me about the things that make up what I call "me." Mannerisms, likes and dislikes, the way I go about doing things, the way I see the universe, etc.

Having Moon in this house means I can relate to the Empress quite well. Freedom, courage, openness go hand in hand with independence, self-reliance and sensual expressiveness.

Moon in Scorpio (an aspect) means having strong emotions are going to be a big part of who I am. Other Moon qualities include a well-developed intuition, keeping secrets, being loyal.

I also have Mars in Scorpio in the 1st House.

The 1st House is going to bring those qualities of Mars up front in my personality. Direct, competitive, strong passions, etc.

Having Mars in Scorpio (again, an aspect) I tend to be tenacious, intense, and extreme.
(Let's face it friends, the planets think I'm a hardass!)

All this points out the characteristics of the planets and their relations to one other the moment I was born. I can't deny that many of these qualites are true, or have been true during the course of my life. My life is mine, though, and learning about my sharp edges began my effort to smooth things as I went along.

We're not locked by fate, nor astrology.

Fuzz

PS This edit some hours later. Forgot to tell you my ascendant is Scorpio. A lot of the rest of my chart is pretty well lumped into Leo in the 10th House. Go figure.

Keslynn,

Thanks for starting this up! I was about to suggest adjourning the group and picking up again with Sag but this is cool too

Going back to Minderwiz's analogy of the planet being the actor, the sign being the role and the house being the type of production, we can start to look at how different people act in Scorpio or the 8th.
---------
So let's see, Keslynn: Uranus in Scorpio/11th. Uranus here is the electrifying planet, loads of energy, sudden changes, flashes of lightening. Mercury to the nth degree. Place this restless planet in Scorpio and you've got this unpredictable energy wearing the garb of Scorpio: secrecy, intensity, hidden depths... the sting of this Scorpion is positively electric ^_~ 11th is traditionally associated with hopes/wishes/groups so this might indicate ah... major changes in groups, very intense and unusual dreams? A passion for social change for the better? Uranus rules 11th so I'm guessing this is a good place for the planet.... OK, I don't know what I'm talking about now

Wow, all those planets in 8th, you probably have a stellium (series of conjunctions - an aspect where the planets are very close together) there indicating a concentration of energy in 8th house matters which have been covered extensively.
----------
Joywalker> Venus in 8th, Venus I believe rules relationships and beauty. How this would play out in the 8th.... since 8th deals w/resources, maybe it means you'll marry rich Just kidding, um... consolidating emotional needs esp love through 8th house issues; sex, resources... um... being vague b/c I don't really know Venus!
---------
Alright, as for my 8th, I've got Saturn conj Jupiter (w/an orb of 0 degrees!) in the sign of Libra. Powerful influence on my life, which I didn't really understand when I was younger, but got a feel for it the more experienced I became w/working w/the uncon (an 8th house area=psychoanalysis). I've also got Pluto there so he's in the house he rules. I've read this gives Pluto some punch, but since he's an "impersonal" planet I'm not sure how much influence I should interpret here. Certainly, the desire to 'dig' into the uncon, to clear out, is apparent (very Tower/Judgment-esque no? Tower=Mars, Judgment=Pluto), Tower/Judgment being cards that frequent my throws very often.... Also, I've read Pluto transits are powerful yet subtle, but they seem pretty darn obvious to me.

Scorpio rules my 10th. I think (cusp means the one that starts off the house, not ends it off?? This going in a counter clockwise direction? Waaaaaaah someone pls help )..... I've got Uranus there conj my MC so it's an important house for me. I often consider creating erotic art/porn esp for women (Scorpio=sex, hidden issues - what's more hidden or subversive than female sexuality in our society these days?) so there we go. Uran rules electricity, and computers/digital technology and are must for me on the career scene (10th). Instant attaction (Scorpio) b/w me and digital technology (Uranus).

As for Mars, he's conjuncting my ASC which is actually pretty subtle until you get to know me well. In fact, I prefer to yield over instigating conflict! Not very Mars-like. However, if something's important to me (ie self preservation), then I will be aggressive, relentless, whatever it takes (maybe that's when Pluto squaring ASC kicks in!). I'm *especially* determined when it comes to dealing w/the uncon (8th house again!)
Mars also affects me when I apply myself academically, which is a major part of how I relate myself to others (1st??). I've always taken risks (Mars) w/my ideas, and always push my papers as far as I can go, try to put my stamp (1st) on my work. I'm not competitive (Mars) w/marks, but for some reason I seem to attract competitive marks-driven ppl which can be annoying! Granted, I did chose to attend a competitive school... Oh, and I also like to lead (Mars) groups if no one else steps in (like this one ^_~).
Another thing to note: I was extremely arrogant and somewhat violent in my early teens which is another possible expression of Mars/1st/ASC. I don't think Pluto squaring the ASC helped either - I was quite the contemptuous one! Trying to gain more perspective, and certainly learning more etc has made me turn this energy towards more useful means. So, I totally agree w/Fuzzmello in that astrology never "locks" a person. I still have the same Mars/Pluto/ASC aspects, I can still be openly aggressive and what not, but I now behave *very* differently than I did when I was younger.

I've been reading all the other Scorpio posts and just trying to soak it all up and make some sense out of my own chart. Thanks to everyone who's been asking and answering all the great questions!!

I have Scorpio as my Sun sign in the 4th house and also have Scorpio in Mercury in the 4th house.
In my 8th house all I have is Aquarius.

I don't know what any of that means though!! Any help would be appreciated.

my own scorpio


I have Venus and Neptune in Scorpio; 3rd house. Venus is not to well aspected.
The Venus Scorpio combination brings troubles and loss with relationships. This is something that many can lay claim to but to go as far as a death of a partner? I've been there(scorp. relates to death).The Mars/Venus aspect also adds to the difficulty with relationships.
The occult Scorp is combined with Neptune (a mediumistic planet)in the 3rd house(studies), Hmm...no wonder.
I have found a coincidental pattern with Scorpio females. (Venus, female) I can't trust them. Somewhere along the way these Scorps sting me with no justification. (except those born on the 31st)

Royal Cat> 4th rules your origins, home and instinct. Sun and Merc in Scorpio means your mode of self expression is in both a water sign (Scorp) and house (4th). This points to emotionally intensity that is expressed, unless your chart is dominated by another element, or if there are hard aspects to these planets. Remember that the sun isn't necessarily the most powerful planet in a person's chart.
Because there are no planets in your 8th house, it is not a significant area in your life. This doesn't mean that you're exempted from 8th house issues, only that the planet's energies are concentrated elsewhere in your chart.

lunlafey> Well third house is the house of communication (ruled by Gemini/Mercury) so I'd expect that you can be verbal about your interest in the occult (Scorp), and expressive w/your emotions and fantasies (Venus/Scorp, Nep). However, since Scorpio rules secrets, you may tend to keep these things hidden; relationships, interests until you open up - then you're intense. I'm just putting keywords together here, correct me if I'm wrong. It's hard to tell w/o knowing your other planets! Since you said Venus wasn't well aspected, I'm assuming that her aspect to Mars is either a square or an opposition. Whichever sign Mars is in will shed more light on how he interacts w/the goddess of love.

Caveat: It is extremely difficult for me to interpret w/o looking at all the planets - w/o this knowledge, I can only be pretty vague about things. Also, I'm hardly an expert in astrology. I only started reading up on it extensively when I began this study group at the beginning of Scorpio!!

Can I just add support to Isthmus' caveat. It really helps if people who are seeking some clarification of their chart or some interpretation add their time/date/place details (send them by PM if you don't want to make them public).

Otherwise it is easy for us to miss something and give you duff gen. I certainly like to look at the pattern of the horoscope as well as the individual placements - these also provide information to the reader and without details that allow us to look at the full chart any comments are at best general or vague.

It also allows us to learn from the reading too. The process becomes two way, we can help you but in doing so we add to our own knowledge and experience.

Lunalafey - No position of Venus in the third, (Scorpio or not) will indicate death of a partner or any other death. Venus in Scorpio is probably going to give you an intensity or possibly secrecy to your relationships and and this intensity is likely to show through your communications, and possibly relationships with brothers and sisters (also third house) or an intense love of cars (also a third House item). If Venus is squared or opposed by other planets then you may have to work at getting things right a bit more than if things came naturally or you might tend to become obssessed with third house matters - an obsessive love of cars for example.

I have Venus in Scorpio but in the fourth, it adds an intense love of home and family and a desire to keep family life 'secret' from the world.

Neptune might well add a dose of otherworldliness to your communications, etc or if badly aspected it might (and I mean might) give you a tendency to communicate better when you are drunk or high!

It is always but always dangerous to make deductions based on part of a chart and always but always dangerous to assume that tendencies or possiblities must show up in behaviour or experience. Someone might have a tendency to communicate better when they are stoned but if they never take a drop then this tendency will never show in their life.
