Have you ever wondered if there are any differences between a Scorpio, whether they are born at the early, middle or latter point of their starsign? Is there any qualities that vary within them? In a word, “Yes!” There are differences that influence Scorpio in a considerable manner and that comes from many other Planets you may not have thought about, or even how other star signs influence the awesome Scorpio. What more could be possibly be revealed?! Let’s find out…
The Three Decans of Scorpio – And What They Are
Each sign of the Zodiac is equally divided into 30 divisions of 10 degree, each sign has 3 Decans, one for every division of 10 degrees. In the case of Scorpio it works out like so;
- Sun 0 – 10 degrees is influenced by Pluto………………………………….. (Scorpio – Scorpio)
- Sun 11 – 20 degrees is influenced by Neptune……………………………. (Pisces – Scorpio)
- Sun 21 – 30 degrees is influenced by the Moon……………………………(Cancer – Scorpio)
Who’s In Da House Scorpios?!!
Basically, Decans are also known as Houses, You may have heard others talking about their birth/natal chart and saying that, maybe one was a Scorpio born in their 2nd House whilst another Scorpio could have been born in their 1st House (When I was learning about astrology, I found this extremely confusing and I must say, initially I presumed that they had to be talking about their number of houses when they were born!)
So, if you were born; Between 23rd October – 2nd November……..…………… This is your 1st Decan
Between 3rd November – 12th November……………….. This is your 2nd Decan
Between 13th November – 22nd November..……………. This is your 3rd Decan
(This is a rough guide, and may change by year)
Where do you fit in?
- SCORPIO – SCORPIO 1st Decan; These Scorpios possess the strongest traits and characteristics of the Scorpio symbol and what’s interesting is that they may have the other 2 Decans of Scorpio as well making this group the most sensual of them. They are ruled by Pluto and are the most intense and most noticeable of people to ever life. Even if they don’t immediately radiate sensuality, you can be certain that those eyes of theirs will get you stopped in your tracks. Jealous Scorpio how crippling your anguish can be once you become obsessed with someone and get jealous if look the wrong way! You can blame your ruling planet for this, but remember, Plato is the God of the Underworld, of death and rebirth and when Mars is strong, will cause your passions to surface. The 1st Decan Scorpios are the ones who prefer spending time with themselves and enjoying their own company – most of the time.
- SCORPIO – PISCES 2nd Decan; This group of Scorpios are ruled by Neptune and are usually less aggressive, and unlike Decan 1,they won’t all guns blazing into something spontaneous quite as much. They would tend to plan ahead more often than not which stems from the Neptune and Mars combination. They also have a great quest for knowledge about everything about themselves and the Universe, making them highly Spiritually aware and engage any future barriers with the same attitude of never giving up on themselves or on the ones they love. This group of Scorpios are the arty – farty ones and they can release any pent-up energy into what they love and that, of course, is anything artistic and creative. You won’t see them down at the gym punching a punchbag (oh perish the thought!) no, the Scorpio – Pisces will be more likely in the comfort of their own home creating their masterpiece.
- SCORPIO – CANCER 3rd Decan; This Scorpio with the loving Cancer in her house love nothing more than spending quality time with their family, they wouldn’t’t know what else to do, it would be as sorrowful as the grass with no colour, They would literally be lost without their family, and this only case would they consider some gentle advice from others, if it were a benefit to their family life. With the chemistry of the Moon and Mars, these members make brilliant public speakers and they enjoy an intellectual debate wherever the can so it goes without saying that many will be employed in the Law Sector, (to use their powers of persuasion and cunning manipulation skills) Reporters, or Journalists so they can get value and worth to again, reap what they sow in seeking that knowledge whilst being paid. Ideal! They are devoted through and through when they fall in love. Their number one priority is their partners happiness will come before all and then some. If they have been upset or let down by their partner, or they have seen the partner change for the worst…yes, you guessed it, they will be straight out the door and never look back.
A Personal View On Who I Believe To Be Better
I honestly can’t and wouldn’t say one was better than the other, what number Decan has more power, there’s absolutely no point as, in my opinion, as Scorpios, any day of the sign in which they were born is as beautifully magnetic as the before, after, between, any way you want to see it. I think as a sign we are the same in essence in terms of traits and characteristics, but, at the end of the day, we are Individualists, no matter who we are. I hope it gives others some direction in their views about a general Scorpio and may help them if they find out, subtly now remember, what their birthday is!
