The 3 Scorpio Decans

Decans are 36 groups of stars that rise in a particular order throughout each earth rotation. These decans were developed in Egypt thousands of years ago. The rising of each decan marked the beginning of a new “decanal hour” of the night for the ancient Egyptians and eventually three decans were assigned to each zodiac sign. Each decan covers ten degrees of the zodiac. Each decan is ruled by different planetary rules which are also correlated with astrological signs.

Scorpio Element: Water

Scorpio is governed by the Element of Water, an Element it shares with the Signs of Cancer and Pisces. Water is also the ruler of the Fourth, Eighth and Twelfth Houses of the Zodiac. Water is linked to emotion and the subconscious. Believed by many to be the strongest and most enduring Element, Water is associated with love, purification, intuition, compassion, family, mysteries of the self and psychic ability.

Scorpio and the 8th House

Scorpio is the natural ruler of the Eighth House of the Zodiac, commonly referred to as the “House of Death and Inheritance” and known in Vedic Astrology as the “Idle Place” and “Place of Death.” It delves into relationships, interactions and how certain aspects of such interactions can take on a more communal nature. Associated with the dismantling of the physical body, it is related to the passing of those persons an individual holds near and dear. It also rules the areas in life over which a human being has no control or can provide no explanation, as well as being linked to the finances and resources of others. In addition, it has jurisdiction over taxes, inheritances and investment banking.

Scorpio: Yin and Negative Polarity

Also known as the Sign of the Mystic or the Investigator, Scorpio is Negative in polarity (as are Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces). The general characteristics of Negative Signs lean toward introversion and prefer to draw upon personal resources rather than look for external stimuli. Such individuals are naturally more receptive, sensitive and nurturing than are the Zodiac Signs of Positive polarity (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius). However, Negative Signs are also likely to be much more cautious, retiring and standoffish than their Positive counterparts with a tendency to keep personal feelings under tight control. Taurus is the most introverted of the Negative Signs (with Virgo a close second).

The Scorpio Symbol

The symbol, or glyph, of Scorpio is generally considered to be a representation of the legs and tail of the Scorpion, signifying the power of this Sign to suddenly and fatally (and often with a hint of wilful cruelty or vindictiveness) sting whatever and whomever may have hurt its feelings or denied its strong-willed desires.

Scorpio Sun Gemini Moon

Scorpio Sun With 12 Moon Signs

In astrology, the Moon is indicative of personality, individuality and the unconscious. It represents instinctive reactions and the side of an individual that will respond to a given situation without prior thought or consideration. The Moon personality is one which a person keeps hidden and may even represent a nature considered to be somewhat disturbing, uncivilized, primitive or animalistic. Basically the Moon personality is an individual’s inner core and its influence is usually a subtle one, relating to a personality which is beneath the surface.
