Understanding Scorpio and the 8 house in astrology
The Eighth House is commonly referred to as the House of Sex. This House delves into relationships — interactions with another and how certain aspects of those interactions can take on a more communal nature. It speaks to what our relationships will bring us and how we can get the most out of them. Shared resources also fall within the Eighth House: inheritance, alimony, taxes, insurance and support from another. Financial support, as well as spiritual, emotional and physical support, are addressed by this house. While our relationships share many of the aforementioned things, they also have their own dynamics and grow from within . Financial support, as well as spiritual, emotional and physical support, are addressed by this house. While our relationships share many of the aforementioned things, they also have their own dynamics and grow from within
Scorpio rules group and joint finances, the treasure under the ground, underworld, Middle East, power, sex, reproductive system, mutual account and funds, insurances, wills, financial contract with partners.As one of the two “money houses,” along with the 2nd house of income, the 8th house rules the money we tuck away for long-term growth such as our financial portfolios and real estate investments. Large lump sums are also 8th house-ruled, such as credit card debt, taxes, royalties, inheritances and commissions. It’s the stuff that takes people to court—or requires a legal team to draw up contracts and hammer out terms.
The 8th house rules death, which is why there can be a heart wrenching quality to this chart sector. But, like the phoenix rising from the ashes, rebirth and transformation also live in this regenerative zone. When it’s time to say goodbye, the 8th house rules all the tortured feelings of obsession, revenge fantasies and rage that rise up as part of the letting-go process.
Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. Because of its incredible passion and power, Scorpio is often mistaken for a fire sign. In fact, Scorpio is a water sign that derives its strength from the psychic, emotional realm. Like fellow water signs, Cancer and Pisces, Scorpio is extremely clairvoyant and intuitive.
What makes this water sign unique is its distinctive toxic pain. Like their celestial spirit animal, the scorpion, Scorpios lie in wait and strike when least expected. Life is a game of chess for these calculating water signs, who are constantly plotting several steps ahead in order to orchestrate an eventual checkmate. This doesn’t mean their intentions are necessarily evil. Scorpios simply know what they want and aren’t afraid to work hard and play the long game to get it.
Scorpio is the eight sign, it rules eight house of the zodiac. The lord of Scorpio is the planet Pluto- the transformational planet. Most people know and believe that Scorpio are intense, manipulative, transformational zodiac sign. And how it expresses it depends upon it’s-awareness and level of evolution. Scorpios like extremes, challenges, danger and darkness. They are, because of their planetary ruler Pluto, drawn to the resident of human experience. If it’s abnormal, risky or thrilling, a Scorpio will be involved somehow! They keep secrets, they keep their dark desire, feelings and emotions. Scorpio love sex, they’re very physical, they don’t do ‘casual things’, they are super-intense. Sometimes this fierce love can tip over into something more controlling, but it comes from a place of wanting to protect you, of thinking they know better, of believing you’re too precious a kitten to be let loose in the world. Sometimes it’s magical… sometimes it can get a bit much. Passion, persistence and obsession are other quality they have.
At the same time, Scorpios are loyal, smart, shrewd and stoic. They stand by their beliefs, and they don’t crave anyone else approval. They are fearlessly curious. Nothing unnerve Scorpio. The more dangerous and disturbing it is, the more they need to look. They like to do deep researches and nothing is left on the surface, they go deeper and deeper and deeper. Best researchers and best criminal inspectors, surgeon, healers, scientists, military, business strategists, anything that is deep and dangerous.
Ruled by Pluto, Scorpio is represented by multiple symbols, the most potent symbols that stand out are The Scorpion, The Eagle, and The Phoenix. These three symbols or group represents the stages of transformation Scorpio undergoes during the spiritual journey. Through peace of mind, we reach spiritual enlightenment. However, to induce the calm it takes to reach higher levels of awareness, Scorpio must have command of their emotions.
The Scorpion, The Eagle and The Phoenix
In it’s first stage, Scorpion represents it’s rawest form: negativity, darkness, aggression, his anger, he can not hide his emotions and desire. In this stage, Scorpio represents their most destructive and intimidating. Here, the scorpion learns from personal experience and pain of loss & betrayal. Scorpion will take other’s advice with a grain of salt while forging their own path with deliberation, determination, and a touch of stubbornness. In this stage, he can use drugs, alcohol, abuse himself, to getaway from bad experience, pain or bad emotions.
The Eagle is the second stage of transformation, considered a symbol of courage and power. The Eagle flies freely, aware of its surroundings and causation. The Scorpion has reached a state of maturity and is at a state where they rely on intuition and wisdom to solve their personal problems and assist others. Where The Scorpion dealt mostly with the physical aspect of life, The Eagle is concerned with perception, philosophy, and wisdom. Here, The Eagle use his powerful intuition and wisdom, but he still struggles to balance his power.
In its third stage, The Phoenix, Scorpio represents the final stage of its transformation, where “The Phoenix” spirit animal symbolizes hope, rebirth, and transformation. The extreme- matured Scorpio is toughened, reborn from the ashes, renewed, and rejuvenated as The Phoenix representing the capacity for empathetic observation without judgment, thus an expansion of compassion and sophistication of self. The Phoenix strongly associated with rebirth, Resurrection and transformation, it is a symbol that represents Scorpio breaking the chains of attachment, having learned the lesson of letting go, smart, wise, spiritual, compassionate, knowing how to be reborn, to rise above the ashes stronger than ever.
Mars in Scorpio
On October 12, 2023, Mars, the planet of war, sex, action and aggression entered its home sign of Scorpio and will remain there until November 24. When Mars swims in the water sign Scorpio, we begin to rely on our instincts, intuition and wisdom as a form of guidance and protection. In order to act properly, we need to understand both Mars and Scorpio and to know what to do and what to expect. It is an intense time when we must grow, we must change, we must allow to be transformed, at the same time, to use our energy and determination to execute our plans and reach our goals. This is the time to take action and to make plans about how we can make our dreams a reality. During this time, we can achieve anything we put our mind to; nothing and no one can stand in our way of attaining greatness.
Mars in Scorpio can brings a need for success and the drive to get it. But it can also generates jealousy, manipulative behavior, greediness, it can cause us to act out of character and desire to win at all costs.
Mars in Scorpio is a warrior, but it isn’t super talkative or chatty, so watch out for pent up aggression to come out in frustrated arguments, followed by total silence or ghosting. Mars in Scorpio makes big declarations and follows up their statements with action, not words.
During Mars, the planet of war in Scorpio, we can expect to see the truth, as Scorpio (with Pluto Lord) uncover everything, Scorpio reveals secrets, lies, the underworld, it fights to the last drop of blood to see the truth and to unveil everything hidden or corrupted. Pluto in Capricorn, right now, until January 2024, the sign of the Government, corporations, centralization, structures, rules and regulations support Mars in Scorpio to get to the point where corruptions and manipulation, power and greediness are exposed and every one can see the truth, their manipulative action. It is the beginning of the revolution and combat to remove the structure and the king of the structure, to get closer and to experience a new life, being in the new era- Aquarian era. With Pluto moving to Aquarius in January to stay there for the next 20 years, we are getting closer and now, with Mars in Scorpio, we will witness this big transformation, we have been waiting for. The last two month of 2023 will be life changing and transforming, in collective, as well in personal level.
In a private sector, look at your natal chart and find out where Scorpio sign is- which house it occupies. This is the area where the action will be, where you have to work hard and to transform your life. Remember, we must use Scorpio/ Pluto energy very carefully and wisely to get the outcome we are looking for. Using aggression and hate will attract the same back to us in return. Knowing well our goal, having practical plans, using determination, hard work, compassion and love, we can help ourselves to reach our goal. Be persistent, the situation can be challenging, but now, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. It is not going to be magical and fast, as Mars cycle is 2 and half years, it will take the same time to see the result of our action and our work. We don’t have to give up, we have to stay positive, using knowledge, resources and energy until we win.
The downside to fiery Mars’ time in watery Scorpio is that we may see expression with unrelenting aggressiveness or anger. This can be either outright or under the surface and could prolong conflicts and erode relationships. The secret to handle properly this transit is to being selective about which walls we want to tear down. We can use this energy constructively by taking on projects that help us redirect our intensity and passion more positively. Do not be like the Scorpion, use the Eagle wisdom and Phoenix power to rise above our pain and to transform our life or change the status, as we let it go ( Scorpio requires elimination and cleansing). Sometimes, we have to let it go in the name of our future, we have to eliminate bad habit, bad people or job in order to be regenerated and to have rebirth of our soul.
Mars in Scorpio can feel a lot like we’ve entered a spiritual boot camp, because it helps us develop our personal power. As long as we choose to rise above the shadows- power struggles, revenge, bitterness, and an inability to forgive- we have an opportunity to master these parts of ourselves with courage, discipline, and willpower. Only by using wisdom, let it go, elimination and forgiveness we will have a chance to be reborn, physically, mentally and spiritually.
Do you want to be a Scorpion who eats his tail, be narcotized or drunk, because of physical or emotional pain? Do you like to be Eagle to fly freely but suffer and wonder how to control your emotions and actions or you are going to use knowledge, wisdom, power, determination, learn how to control your power and emotions and rise above the ashes, as the bird Phoenix, be reborn again- stronger and stronger, moving toward your dreamed shore? Choose properly your action now. Use November energy to transform your life in a positive way.
