Each of the planets in our horoscope represents a certain type of energy that flows within us. A very specific type of energy that shapes different aspects of our personality.

The science of astrology is built on the assumption that we, as human beings are a mini-representation of the universe itself, and that we experience the influences of all 10 planets within us – through our life and consciousness.

The Aspects towards your Sun in Scorpio provide the following information

Sun in Scorpio

Each planet in aspect with the Sun represents energy or archetype, associated (in a positive or negative way) with the development of our individuality, personality and self-expression.

We need to find constructive ways to incorporate this energy into our lives (perhaps through vocation, inherent to the same planet). For example, a person with the Sun in aspect with Neptune must in some form meet Neptune in the process of individualization. They should express the planet in the form of Neptunian career, such as healing, music or art.

It is possible to feel the aspects of the Sun through other people in our lives (especially in oppositions). For example, a man with the Sun in opposition to Saturn will see others as limiting and blocking.

Ultimately, we will have to embrace and integrate these qualities, which we usually project on others.

Sun in Scorpio feel the energy very subtly and see the world as transitions of energy.

They often sense the boundary between the visible and the invisible, so they have a strong interest in the other world. This is manifested in everything they do – they often go through massive transformations in their life that make them die on the inside numerous times in order to experience a re-birth and start living in a completely new reality.

Water signs usually hide in their own worlds and only come out under external influences, but Sun in Scorpio behave differently. They accumulate energy and put it into action when needed.

When Sun in Scorpio find a goal or a project, which they wish to pursue, their initial state of lethargy disappears and they become extremely energetic, ambitious, and driven.

Sometimes Sun in Scorpio accumulate a lot of emotional excess, which makes them more demonstrative, trying to involve everyone else in their activities.

In the astrological literature, this sign is symbolized by two animals – the eagle and the scorpion.

The archetype of the eagle can reach extreme heights, because he has dealt with his lower nature. He has overcome the temptations of the flesh, the desire to possess, control, and manipulate others. This is how he has risen above the earthly desires and was given the opportunity to fly high in the clouds.

The archetype of the scorpion, on the other hand, it is still largely controlled by strong emotions, desires and passions. Those born with a Sun in Scorpio almost never forget the harm done to them. They can wait a long time for the right moment to stick their sting in the heart of the the person, who hurt them when they least expect it. Sometimes they strive to satisfy their strong passions and desires at any cost, without caring about the consequences of their actions.

Sun In Scorpio Best Traits

Sun in Scorpio

In general, Sun in Scorpio are characterized by great ambition, impeccable survival instincts, determination, courage and perseverance.

They also have an extremely strong intuition and often use it to achieve their goals.

Scorpio is ruled by the underground god Pluto. That is why those born with a Sun in Scorpio always strive to get to the heart of things and understand the deep reasons why certain events have unfolded in a certain way.

This is why Sun in Scorpio people often become good psychotherapists, detectives and researchers. They usually have a very strong self-will. All this, combined with their determination, analytical mind, strong intuition and personal ability to plan, organize and implement their strategies, makes them extremely strong personalities, who are capable of practically anything!

Sun in Scorpio do not hesitate to use their strong intuition to ‘read’ other people’s thoughts and plans. They have the ability to reach even the most intimate corners of the information buried in the subconscious. And it’s no secret that whoever has this information ultimately has power.

One of the most important keywords for Scorpio is “power”. This sign probably has the greatest inner power, compared to other zodiac signs. In what direction this inner force will be used is another question.

Most often, the direction in which Sun in Scorpio implement their actions largely depends on the degree of their spiritual development.

Sun in Scorpio Bad Traits and Personality Challenges

astrology cheatsheets

Sun in Scorpio

It is extremely difficult for Sun in Scorpio to openly admit any weakness they might have.

This is because, for them, the hidden recognition of weakness means resignation and voluntary submission to someone else’s power. Scorpio would rather fight to the last drop of blood than go under someone else’s power. Still, it is known that in order to overcome our weaknesses, we must first recognize them.

We must at least admit them to ourselves. By acknowledging their weaknesses internally, Sun in Scorpio can use all their other extremely strong qualities to work on themselves. That’s how they acquire even greater power.

The first step is always to be aware of and analyze the problem. In this respect, astrology can be extremely useful for everyone, born with a Sun in Scorpio.

This would be especially emphasized if Pluto makes positive aspects to the other planets and especially to the Sun. The presence of the Sun or Pluto in the first house would also help a lot. In this case, the individual’s desire for self-knowledge and improvement would be quite enhanced.

Scorpio is one of the fixed signs and as such is characterized by great stubbornness. This is especially true when Mercury also falls in Scorpio. Therefore, those born with a Sun in Scorpio should strive to develop more flexibility and adaptability.

Sun in Scorpio have a very hard time with criticism. Even the slightest remark can be interpreted as an attack and they immediately take up combat position.

In their ‘wars’ with others, Scorpios can use a variety of legal and illegal methods. Their favorites remain complete withdrawal, grave silence, scathing criticism, and defiant sarcasm. In general, Sun in Scorpio can be quite vindictive and practically cannot forget whoever has hurt their feelings or reputation. Even if it was not done to them on purpose.

Sun in Scorpio are able to wait as long as it takes (sometimes even years) to get their revenge. No doubt it would be extremely helpful for these people to learn to forgive.

Otherwise, the negative energy that they are able to accumulate in themselves begins to eat them from the inside. It is known that when the scorpion animal is surrounded by a hoop of fire, of which there is no way out, then it plunges its poisonous vein into itself.

Similarly, those born with the Sun in Scorpio can be extremely sarcastic and aggressive not only to others, but also to themselves. Suppression of negative emotions, memories and feelings has a corrosive effect on their psyche. Learning to forgive will begin to purify the slag that had accumulated in their souls and would have an amazingly healing effect on them.

Scorpio Psychology Essential Facts

astrology cheatsheets

Sun in Scorpio

In general, renewal and transformation are other keywords for Scorpio.

As we mentioned in the beginning, the Sun in Scorpio representatives fall into one of the two groups of archetypes – the scorpion (still guided by their lower nature) or the eagle (the more spiritually advanced ones).

Many Sun in Scorpio individuals like to explore themselves and analyze the hidden mechanisms that drive others towards certain action. This gives them strength and advantage over others. At the same time, however, they are extremely secretive when it comes to their own motivation.

In ancient Greek mythology, Pluto was represented by the god of the underworld Hades. He resided in his realm of shadows and almost never went outside. On extremely rare occasions, when he still had to do so, he used a special helmet that made him invisible. So no one could see his true appearance.

In a general way, the representatives of Sun in Scorpio are sometimes characterized by extreme secrecy. While actively taking interest in others, exploring their desires and hidden motivation, they themselves strive to remain an unsolved riddle at all costs.

This is even felt in their very presence. There is always an atmosphere of mystery and mysteriousness around Sun in Scorpio.

They are rarely particularly talkative. Usually they only speak out the mere essentials. Their gaze is extremely penetrating. This is especially pronounced in those born with a Scorpio rising, as the human gaze is mostly related to the ascendant.

Sun in Scorpio Secretiveness

astrology cheatsheets

Sun in Scorpio

This tendency of Sun in Scorpio to remain silent and secretive can easily earn them the fame of non-sociable people.

They are not particularly excited about this, because they do not care what others think of them… or at least they never show it outwardly.

When Sun in Scorpio find themselves in a difficult situation, they do not share openly with relatives and friends. On a subconscious level, they believe that the sharing of a personal problem is a sign of weakness, which they do not want to admit in any case. They would by no means allow others to perceive them as weak individuals.

In fact, this is not the case. Sharing problems is not always a sign of weakness, but quite the opposite. No one can boast with such great power that he or she is able to deal with all the difficulties in life on their own. That is why we live in a society, and not on isolated  individual islands.

Besides, there are certain issues that can only be solved by specialists – doctors, teachers, astrologers, psychotherapists, etc. Sun in Scorpio people need to learn to trust these specialists, seek their advice and follow it. That way, they not only won’t look weak, but even the opposite – they will become much stronger personalities.

This is especially true in cases where a certain addiction has developed, for example to cigarettes, alcohol or drugs.

Many Sun in Scorpios individuals are particularly susceptible to this type of addiction.

astrology cheatsheets

Sun in Scorpio

In most cases, they shut themselves in, deny the existence of the problem, or even if they admit it to themselves, they think they can handle it with their own willpower.

The first step to saving these people is helping them acknowledge the fact that they have a serious problem to solve. The second step is to resort to professional help, and the third is to strictly follow the remedies and methods, prescribed by the specialist.

Otherwise, a vicious cycle may develop, including the “bottling” of the problem, its denial and the stubborn reluctance to seek professional assistance. This spiral could eventually quickly lead Sun in Scorpio individuals into the abyss, right into the underworld of their ruler Pluto.

Therefore, Scorpios are encouraged to periodically share their problems with people they trust. Of course, it’s hard to find even one person that Sun in Scorpio can fully trust, but even partial sharing in front of a very limited circle of loyal friends would have a positive effect.

In this way, they would be in a much better position to see possible ways to resolve the situation that may otherwise seem hopeless. In general, Sun in Scorpio tend to shut themselves in a problem and constantly think about the same thing without noticing that in this way they are spinning in a vicious circle.

The essence of Scorpio can be summarized as follows:

astrology cheatsheets

Sun in Scorpio

it is a sign in which a cardinal struggle is taking place between the higher and the lower human nature. Eventually, the lower nature is forced to give in and surrender to the power and might of higher powers. Until those born with a Sun in Scorpio achieve this final result, they will not be able to have peace in their souls and they will constantly fight with their inner demons.

Intensity is another important characteristic of Sun in Scorpio.

They practically don’t know what the word balance means. They are always thrown from one extreme to the other. For example, when they love, they love with all their heart. When they hate, they hate from the bottom of their souls.

Often the people next to them are forced to endure this range of intense feelings. The same applies to attitudes towards food, sports, pleasures, work and any other area of ​​their lives. These people become either saints or sinners. They just don’t like to stand in the middle.

While not a single muscle trembles on the faces of these people, fierce battles are raging in their souls. In their inner world, which they jealously guard from prying eyes, Sun in Scorpio have both a bailiff and jurors, and their own personal prison, with guards.

Sun in Scorpio are able to bring themselves to justice, to convict themselves and to enforce their sentence themselves.

It is clear that Scorpios are extremely self-sufficient. However, this does not mean that they are self-confident. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why they avoid being in the spotlight.

Scorpio is one of the fixed signs. Those born with the Sun in Scorpio initially resist the need for any change. In such cases, their stubbornness is clear.

In other cases, however, they can clearly understand that change is inevitable and then nothing can stop them. As a result, they take drastic actions that sweep away their old way of life. Not long after they do so, they feel comfortable in the new situation and are ready to roll up their sleeves against the new challenges that life offers them.

In the period between 1984 to 1995, the ruler of Scorpio – Pluto, passed through his own sign. Therefore, for most people born in this decade, all the positive and negative traits of Scorpio are greatly enhanced. Many of them also have Pluto in conjunction with the Sun in Scorpio. Mercury and Venus are nearby, too.

This is an extremely strong combination. These people are born as a kind of source of power and strength. They have an extremely strong sense of sexual energy, a tendency to experiment with drugs, the intensity of feelings, a tendency to mysticism and the paranormal, as well as a strong tendency to suppress feelings.

The houses in which these planets are located show the spheres in life where these energies are directed. In any case, both the Sun and Pluto are their personal planets. The houses in which they are located and the aspects they receive have extreme significance and special attention should be paid to them when interpreting the chart.

Sun in Scorpio Health

astrology cheatsheets

Sun in Scorpio

In terms of health, they usually have no particular problems.

Nature has endowed them with toughness, endurance and strength. Problems arise when they overindulge in food, cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, sex, and anything else their astral nature may desire.

Sun in Scorpio Career

astrology cheatsheets

Sun in Scorpio

Sun in Scorpio need to be emotionally connected to their careers. At the same time, they need to earn a lot of money.

Money for them is equivalent to power and strength, and as we mentioned at the beginning, these are some of the keywords for this sign.

Some may not like their job, but they do it because of their inner urge to make money and feel strong.

Sun in Scorpio like to set almost unattainable goals. This tests their strength and shows them what they are capable of. Others do well with their own business, especially if the Sun is in the 10th or 4th house.

Many Sun in Scorpio representatives are also involved in the large corporate business. This is especially likely if the Sun is located in the 8th house.

This placement can also generate a strong interest in the metaphysical and esoteric side of life.

If they are not employed full-time, Scorpios must find a full-fledged activity to fully spend their time. Inactivity is especially detrimental to them and can push them towards very dangerous roads.

Sun in Scorpio Children

astrology cheatsheets

Sun in Scorpio

Sun in Scorpio children show some of their typical qualities – intensity of feelings, commitment and strength.

If something worries them, they become extremely quiet and closed in themselves. They can even start to give up their favorite foods.

Therefore, the earlier Sun in Scorpio children get used to sharing at least part of their problems, the better. Otherwise, some negative tendencies are formed in them, which have an even more negative effect in the future.

Every child needs a hobby. However, this is especially true for Sun in Scorpio children. Through sports, they are given the opportunity to expend their abundant physical energy. Most suitable for them are water sports and team games, where strength is required.

The more creative ones can dance or do gymnastics. Many Sun in Scorpio children are driven towards martial arts, not only for the opportunity to learn how to properly spend their physical energy, but also for the spiritual and an esoteric element that they contain.

Sun in Scorpio Parents

astrology cheatsheets

Sun in Scorpio

As parents, Sun in Scorpio can be extremely demanding and strict. They are especially enthusiastic in trying to guide their children to follow a path similar to the one they themselves have taken, while at the same time trying to unleash their full potential.

However, Sun in Scorpio parents should not forget that not all children respond well to iron discipline and strict requirements. Some children with creative potential develop better if they are given more leeway.

They should also keep in mind that not all children accept the intense type of relationship. Some of them respond much better to jokes, entertainment and fun, thus learning better.

Therefore, as parents, Sun in Scorpio need to develop more adaptability, compliance and the ability to compromise in the upbringing of their children.

Sun in Scorpio Love and Relationships

astrology cheatsheets

Sun in Scorpio

In their relationships, Sun in Scorpio are happiest when they meet a partner who satisfies them both emotionally and sexually.

Each sign of the Zodiac governs a certain part of the human body. The area that is under the control of Scorpio are the genitals and reproductive organs. This can explain why these people place such a strong emphasis on sexuality.

Indeed, Scorpios have the reputation of being very good lovers with an extremely high charge of sexual energy. But you shouldn’t think that anyone born with a Sun in Scorpio is a potential sex maniac. Many of them expend their excess energy through sports, for example.

The location of Venus and Mars by sign, house, and their aspects, as well as the aspects to the Sun, are indicative of the needs and requirements of Sun in Scorpio when it comes to love and sex. The general rule is that the positive aspects to these planets, as well as the positive aspects to the Sun, further enhance their sexuality.

Many people born with the Sun in Scorpio cannot reach their full potential if they are not satisfied sexually. It is important to find a positive vent for channeling the enormous amount of energy that accumulates in them.

Probably the most negative trait of Scorpios is jealousy. Many of them try to obsess over their partner. To a large extent this behavior may be dictated by their need for a sexual partner. Without such, many of them cannot be satisfied in any other field of life.

Therefore, even the very thought of losing their partner drives Sun in Scorpio representatives crazy. Many of them are not entirely clear about the true motives of their jealousy, but a deeper analysis would reveal these reasons.

Sun in Scorpio jealousy, especially if accompanied by revenge, and sometimes even cruelty, can become a major problem in the relationship. Therefore, they should strive to work on their personality and overcome this weakness. Otherwise, they will have to deal with the events they initially feared the most.

On the other hand, Scorpio jealousy can help them advance in life. Seeing, for example, that one of their colleagues is doing better than them at work, they would have a powerful incentive to achieve much better results in their.

In their relationship with a partner, Scorpios are characterized by boundless devotion and dedication. They are capable of exceptional self-sacrifice in the name of the person next to them.

But they should  try to consciously control their jealousy, because even the slightest threat to the relationship can make them act in an aggressive way, which they may regret later.

Since this is such a vast topic to cover, I have dedicated separate articles to it.
