The Sign of the Refiner
The Eighth Sign of the Zodiac

by Rebecca Brents


Scorpio -- the 8th sign of the Zodiac

Scorpio is the eighth sign of the Zodiac. It follows Libra in the Zodiacal line-up. As a rule, the range of Scorpio covers the time from October 23rd until November 22nd.

It is a time of transition and permanent changes. It is associated with the ending of worn-out or exhausted conditions, revitalization of situations and relationships that need a new focus, and decisions to replace or improve things that just aren't working any more.


A time of review and revision

In mundane matters, Scorpio is concerned with death, recycling, destruction, rebirth, finding "hidden treasure" in ideas and circumstances that have been declared useless or depleted, and with reinvesting assets and raw materials in more profitable ventures.

The Zodiacal symbol for Scorpio is the Scorpion. Scorpio is the Fixed Water sign. Water signs are emotional, intuitive, passionate, and private. Fixed signs are determined and stubborn. They handle life's problems by digging in ... and "outlasting the situation." Thus Scorpio brings a legendary willfulness to bear on all projects and interests it turns itself to, determined to succeed in its undertakings, come what may.


Scorpio is the fixed water sign

The other Fixed Signs are Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius. The natural style these signs take in their approach to life can bring challenges to their relationships with Scorpio. The other Water signs are Cancer and Pisces. Common values and similar preferences in habits and ambitions help these signs find an easier, more natural compatibility with Scorpio.

Traditionally Scorpio is compatible with Astrology Sign Cancer and Astrology Sign Pisces, other Scorpios, Astrology Sign Virgo, and Astrology Sign Capricorn. Virgo and Capricorn bring supportive and complementary qualities that can enhance their relationship with Scorpio.


Scorpio is ruled by Pluto

On the other hand, a match between Scorpio and Astrology Sign Leo or Scorpio and Astrology Sign Aquarius carries special challenges ... and a relationship between Scorpio and Astrology Sign Taurus will require well-defined "territories" for each partner ... and a constant willingness to compromise on many issues, for these two signs often hold to different values. As you can see, Taurus / Scorpio relationships can be kind of mixed blessing.

Physically, Scorpio rules the reproductive system The ruling planet of Scorpio is Pluto. Scorpio is associated with the colors purple and deep burgundy red. The starstone (not the birthstone) assigned to Scorpio is the opal.
