The Zodiac is an imaginary belt in the sky which represents the orbit of the Sun around the Earth. This system was devised by Claudius Ptolemy, a Roman astrologer, who deemed that the Earth was stationary and all the planets and stars revolved around it. Known as the Ptolemaic System, this system is still used today by astrologers, even though we know now that Earth and all the other planets in our Solar System orbit the Sun. The zodiac belt is divided into 12 sections, of 30° each, with each section named after a constellation - these are the Signs of the Zodiac - known as Sun Signs (not Star Signs!).
Your Sun Sign indicates the sign of the Zodiac the Sun occupied at the time of your birth. The Sun rules your willpower and ego and it is the core of your potential and uniqueness as an individual - who you are and what makes you tick.
Your Sun Sign represents the direction and focus of your life and your determination to achieve your aims and ambitions. It also represents your integrity, your ability to command respect and your ability to impress and influence others. It represents the outer you - how others see you.
|Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, symbolised by the Scorpion. It is a feminine Water sign, ruled by the planet Pluto. People whose birthday falls between October 23 and November 21 are said to be born under the sign of Scorpio. However if you were born on the day when the Sun moved signs you will need to know your time of birth to determine which Sun sign you really are. The Tarot card associated with Scorpio is Death.|
The Sun in Scorpio makes you strong-willed and self-contained, with a talent for probing. Prizing loyalty and total involvement, you deplore indifference and superficiality - you need to learn to be more open. Scorpios are regularly accused of being obsessively interested in sex. This arises from the fact that Scorpio rules the genitals. Many Scorpios express their sexual energy through sport and work. It is vital for their abundant energy to be positively used. You are capable of very deep and systematic thought and can get to the root of a problem.
You need a sympathetic partner who will meet your physical needs and emotional demands with empathy and warmth. Finding such a person, you will pursue him or her with intensity. You demand a great deal of your children and are eager for them to be successful. As a child, you tended to bottle up your emotions and were probably encouraged to communicate.
You are very ambitious and appear devoted to making money. Your sense of purpose means you could be an excellent businessperson, and you incisive mind could help you to be a successful researcher or detective. You are often extremely involved in your work. Scorpios often wait until retirement before they take up interests outside work. You are intense in work and play - moderation does not come easily, but should be cultivated. Swimming is especially good exercise for you, and you could be attracted to the martial arts, for the physical aspects as well as the philosophy.
Although everyone born under the same Sun-sign shares some basic traits, the date you were born determines which type of Scorpio you really are.
Each sign of the Zodiac comprises thirty degrees and thus each Zodiac Sign can be divided into three subsections called Decans. Each Decan corresponds to 10 degrees or roughly 10 days of a Zodiac Sign's time period. Every sign will have three Decans and each Decan has a planetary ruler which becomes the co-ruler of that particular sign. Decans can provide a more detailed account of an individual's personality traits and character and reveal how people born under the same Zodiac Sign can be very different.
