Scorpio Ascendant - Profile and Characteristics of Scorpio Rising

Scorpio rising denotes a reserved, shrewd, secretive and proud disposition. The fate is either tragic and unfortunate ; or very favourable and exalted. There appear to be two classes born under this sign, the extremely ignorant and the highly mystical ; the former are inquisitive, deceitful, jealous and treacherous, while the latter are prudent, self-controlled, and highly dignified. In many respects this is truly the 'accursed sign' and it generally produces natives of one extreme or the other. A great deal will depend upon planetary positions as to the class of ego attracted to this sign, the strongest and the weakest characters being born under its influence, the weakest being those who have no control over their animal senses, while the strongest are penetrative, mystical and intelligent.

The second decanate of Scorpio rising accentuates the extremes of Scorpio, as mentioned above. The fate is usually unfortunate and often disastrous. If the native is born into a poor environment under this decanate, he rarely succeeds in raising himself above mediocrity.

The third decanate of Scorpio rising wakens the sensitive nature of the sign Scorpio, and gives a keen desire for attachment, thus breaking up a great deal of the selfish side of the sign as a whole. When the horoscope denotes it the love of the occult or of psychic phenomena is very marked. Generally speaking it increases the jealous tendencies of Scorpio.

When the first decanate of Scorpio ascends note carefully the strength and position of Mars, the eighth house and its occupants. If the planet Mars is below the earth and afflicting the luminaries the character of the native is very considerably weakened. If Mars is above the earth, but not setting, it is improved. Planets rising in Scorpio will affect the whole horoscope : if the Sun rises it is considerably benefited; if setting, the reverse. See to the fourth and twelfth houses.

When the second decanate of Scorpio ascends note aspects between Mars and Jupiter ; if in affliction the native is very unfortunate, and not well disposed. Observe also the twelfth house.

When the third decanate of Scorpio ascends note the aspects between the Moon and the planet Mars, also the contents of the fourth house. The horoscope is improved if the Moon is well placed and favourably aspected, but the reverse if much afflicted.
