When a person has his natal Sun in Scorpio, it means that he belongs to the zodiac sign of Scorpio. Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, and has planet Pluto as its ruling celestial body. Before Pluto was discovered, Mars was being considered as its ruler, and still remains as a co-ruler. The period of Scorpio starts on the 23rd of October and lasts until the 22nd of November. Slight differences in the exact hours can occur, because we should not forget that every fourth year has one day more than the others.
The Sun is the brightest object in the sky, the life-giving star of our Solar System, and also the most important celestial body in astrology. Also called Sol, the Sun is impersonated by the ancient Greek god Helios. Life on earth is literally empowered by the Sun’s energy, with it having effect on all the biorhythms of live organisms. Astrologically, its influences are so important that most people only know the sign where their Sun is placed in, referring to it just as “their sign”.
The Sun is ruling our vitality and self-perception, making any house it is placed in the epicenter of our life. It has a strong masculine energy, and in the natal chart depicts our father. In addition, it can also show relations with the male gender or generally people who become a father figure for us. In addition, the Sun is strongly connected with activity and self-confidence, and rules our personality and ego. When it is located in Scorpio, Pluto’s energies are blending with the ones of the Sun. Thus, there is a flow of very dominant energy that makes the Sun’s attributes quite intense. Scorpio people cannot pass unnoticed. For them, being in control is the ultimate goal, as also discovering the causes and reasons behind things. They are one of the most independent signs, as they like to be the only ones having control over their own selves.
Pluto and Scorpio are the natural rulers of the 8th house, so their effects on a person are common with having the natal Sun in the eighth house. Scorpio sign people enjoy uncovering hidden secrets, both of the material world while also beneath the veil of reality. The 8th house rules death and transformation, and thus those mysteries are becoming a life-long quest for them. Scorpios are very curious, and many times will perceive solving a mystery as some type of personal challenge. This can even make them reach extremes while trying to find out what concerns them, and frequently use methods of flexible or even dubious morality to achieve it.
Pluto is ruling control, and Scorpio people will always feel a natural urge to be on top of situations. This can draw them towards politics, or other type of activities that can make them feel dominant over others. Curiously enough, Scorpio Sun people may prefer ruling from the shadows and not as frontmen. They will prefer real power, which many times is not in the hands of the person who is on stage, but in the one that is behind the stage. Thus, as in our era financial institutions are even stronger than governments, Scorpios can find there even more power. We also should not forget that the 8th house is ruling other people’s money, and so banks and organizations involving great money flow are under the governance of Scorpio. Indeed, Scorpio people can excel in any job connected with them. Yet, they should be a little bit careful when exercising such type of financial control over other people, and always have the human factor in mind. Financial institutions are well-known for creating great amount of difficulties to individuals, even if it is their own mistakes and misuse of money that trigger it. Scorpios that work in finances should hold themselves away from enjoying the dominative feelings they can achieve.
As we already mentioned, Natal Sun in Scorpio people adore uncovering mysteries. On the other hand, they tend to be very secretive themselves. They prefer to keep their own information private, protect it from the eyes of others. This will happen even with trivial information, which is of no real use for others. The reason behind it is the urge to feel secure, because Scorpios tend to be a little bit paranoid about other people. They will always be more alert about possible enemies, and quite suspicious too. By keeping their life details away from common view, they will be quite more relaxed. When someone tries to intrude their privacy, Scorpios might become aggressive and retaliate. It is quite simple: when someone tries to put his hand into a Scorpion nest, it is quite natural to get stung. Also, Scorpio people may hold grudges and even show revengeful behaviors more than other individuals.
Scorpio and Pluto are strongly connected with the reproductive system and the sexual organs. Thus, it is not strange that Scorpios are considered to be the most sexually potent people. For them, sex is literally a procedure of death and rebirth, the closest way they can find to simulate the great mystery of life. It aids them understand a little more the grand transformation. This urge makes them be sexually more open than the rest of the people, and have less taboos. In fact, breaking taboos is for them another way of conquering the borders of knowledge about life and death, so they will be quite eager to experiment. Pluto’s energy is not only connected with control but also with physical extremes such as pain. Thus, Scorpios will more easily enter the world of BDSM, and use a lot of other techniques, while also fetishes.
The sign of Scorpio belongs to the element of water, and so Scorpio type of people are strongly connected to it. They feel at home near the sea, rivers or lakes, and the constant presence of water even can empower their psychic abilities. It is true that water sign people have their gates of perception more open than others, and can easily absorb cosmic information as if they have antennas. Scorpios can become good mediums, and very frequently have occult powers, which they mostly discover themselves through research. Their sexual life can also provide them huge amounts of energy, which they can consciously use in their occult workings. Of course, in some situations and especially if the Sun is adversely afflicted, the spiritual powers can be of a darker and even destructive nature.
Individuals that have Scorpio as their sign can become great psychiatrists and psychologists. Their mind can penetrate the deeper levels of a human mind, and discover the hidden causes behind mental effects. For the same reasons, a Scorpio would make a great private investigator, or even police officer in the forensics department. Naturally, scientific careers that are connected with deep research are also perfect for them. From nuclear physicists to biologists, from microbiologists to medical researchers, all those jobs suit them. They are particularly good in understanding the microcosm, and even finding pioneering answers that can help the community. Also, Scorpio Sun people can be excellent surgeons. As we already mentioned, financial careers in governmental institutions or banks can be another good option, such as tax collectors and loan consultants. As Scorpio and Pluto are also connected with death, Scorpios may be the only ones that can be good in taboo jobs such as undertakers, funeral services etc. Other type of taboo jobs that Scorpios may more easily do than the rest signs are connected with the sex industry in all of its forms. From being owners of a sex shop, or promoting sexuality as art, to even be physically involved providing sexual services.
People with their natal Sun in Scorpio are usually very possessive in their relationships. They will frequently be more dominant than their partner, and prefer to lead than to follow. They are suspicious by nature, and will not tolerate someone being dishonest towards them. Sometimes they cannot control their jealousy, and might overreact when feeling suspicious. It is not uncommon for them to check on their partners, or elsehow try to control them. On the other hand, they may reach extraordinary depths of intimacy with their significant other, breaking the borders that bodies impose and merging in a strong spiritual union. Scorpios can easily hypnotize other people through their animal magnetism, and will even enjoy manipulating. They should be careful to not become psychic vampires, feeding on other people’s sexuality and through invading the gates of their subconscious.
A dark side of Scorpio is that they can have rough vicious outbursts, especially if their Sun is challenged by adverse aspects. Such events usually happen when Scorpios are betrayed, or experience other harsh feelings such as jealousy or hate. Pluto and Scorpio rule our genitals, reproductive system, pancreas and excretory system. These are also the body parts that can more easily suffer during difficult transits to the native’s natal Sun. In case that someone has adverse natal aspects to it, they can even experience chronic problems. Scorpios should be always careful to not overuse their sexuality.
The Sun in our charts rules our own father. Thus, in case it is in Scorpio, it will give a Scorpionic type of father. There is a high possibility that the father is occupied in one of the Scorpionic professions, mentioned above. He is usually a dominant person, who may have been a very authoritative archetype. Especially if the native’s Sun is well aspected, he will perceive his father as a strong parent, a person who is a pillar of stability. His father can frequently also be of the sign of Scorpio. Alternatively, his father may have a lot of planets in Scorpio, or his Pluto strong by placement and aspects. An adversely aspected Sun may indicate that the father is too controlling, invading too much the native’s privacy. Another pattern that appears frequently with bad aspects, is the father being somewhat cruel, with outbursts of vicious emotions that somehow torture the chart owner.
We should always keep in our mind that no Scorpio the same as another. The biggest mistake is to think that only by knowing our Sun sign, we can use astrology. In case you are a Scorpio, care to find out what at which degree of Scorpio your Sun resides. By making your natal chart, you can also find out in which house it resides.
Also, examine the aspects that the Sun forms with other planets of your natal chart. You will understand a lot more about the detailed role that the Sun has in your horoscope. After all, the Sun is the core of your existence, and definitely signifies an important part of our lifepath.
