Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
Honest and True
The sign of the Scorpion and the Eagle is that of Scorpio. The first symbol denotes the lower type of the sign and the Eagle the higher type. It is governed by the fifth ray of science.
Scorpio is ruled by Mars, the planet of dynamic energy, and therefore the children born during that month when the Sun is passing through this sign are filled with a force that must have an outlet somewhere or somehow. They partake in all the Martial qualities, either good or bad, according to the way the Sun is placed and aspected, and they are always ready to take up an argument or a fight; either on their own behalf or for someone else; they are never content with half measures, either they go to one extreme or the other, good or bad.
Max Heindel, The Message of the Stars
Scorpio is a Water sign and lives to experience and express emotions. Although emotions are very important for Scorpio, they manifest them differently than other water signs. This is perhaps why they are a most unpredictable sign of the Zodiac.
Scorpios are capable of rising from very low depths of sensuality and degradation. Only the most courageous and self-disciplined individual could live in this sign from a high state of consciousness. That is because Scorpio is a sign of intense desire and utter giving of oneself to that desire. There is present strong will and keen appetites.
