KATY’S ASTROLOGICAL CHART
Without a time of birth, I cannot place the signs in the houses, or determine what the rising sign (Ascendant) is. I chose not to include aspects to the moon, as it is a fast moving body, and its effects are only hours in duration. I also did not include Pluto in its sign of Libra, as this, the farthest and slowest moving planet, relates to a generation of people, rather than individuals. With the exception of my own comments, which are in parentheses, all astrological interpretations are from two reputable books on the subject that I have had for many years. Anyone can check these aspects themselves, if they are so inclined.
Scorpio: October 23-November 21
Fixed,Water Key Words: Regeneration, resourcefulness, secrecy
Ruler: Mars and Pluto
In many ways, Scorpio is the most powerful sign of the Zodiac because it is ruled by Mars and Pluto, while Uranus, the planet of sudden release of energy is exalted in it. More than any other sign, Scorpio deals with processes of fundamental transformation on all levels. This transformation can be on a high or low plane, depending on the motivation behind the change. However, as a rule, Scorpios work to improve the status quo.
Scorpios possess power, will, and intense emotional desires. Their life is likely to be a constant struggle to conquer desire through the creative use of the will. Since this sign is strongly related to the desire principle and the sex drive, there is tremendous emotional force behind the Scorpio's romantic involvements.
When out of proper control, this can lead to possessiveness, jealousy, and violence. No sign can be so potent for good or evil as Scorpio. Because Scorpios act with all their power, it is of utmost importance that they set out on the proper course from the start. They never deal with life superficially, and whatever they become involved with is generally of serious consequence. Sometimes their desire to do everything perfectly makes them unable to delegate responsibility, so they overwork themselves, seeking perfection in all details.
Highly developed Scorpios are the most ardent defenders of justice, even in the face of death. Unlike Arians, who are also ruled by Mars and Pluto, they have tremendous staying power because they are in a fixed sign. They will see any matter through to the bitter end, regardless of the required effort and sacrifice. Although these people despise weakness in themselves and do not like to see it in others, they are often generous and compassionate, and will extend themselves in order to help someone else. Scorpios expect, however, that the individual, once helped, will stand independently and continue to help himself.
They are not always diplomatic, since they believe in expressing their ideas and feelings with unfiltered truthfulness. They would rather remain silent than give a watered-down version of their true opinions and emotions.
They have an intense drive to investigate the nature of things and discover the causes behind any outward manifestation. Consequently, they excel in work involving detection, science, research, and occult investigations.
They tend to be highly secretive, and woe be unto those who give away their secrets or incur their wrath. (She'll never spill the beans if he doesn't.) In a battle, they will give no quarter and expect none. If one takes up cudgels with Scorpios, he should be well fortified.
In appearance, they are generally of robust and strong build. They often possess keenly penetrating eyes and a strong aura of personal mystique and magnetism. (I don’t see that through the television, but Keith must see something fascinating there). Their intuition is well developed, as a rule, giving them the ability to penetrate the inner thoughts of others and extract secret information from them. (She must know some really interesting stuff about Keith!)
When spiritually developed, Scorpios derive immense power from their ability to tap the fundamental, creative, regenerative forces of nature. Thus, their accomplishments can sometimes seem almost miraculous. They are not inclined to fear death because they have a mystical understanding of the cyclic nature of manifestation.
In Scorpio, the Sun gives strong characteristics and shrewd, keen judgment. The Scorpio native is critical, suspicious, skeptical but enterprising, reserved, tenacious, determined and secretive. Fond of luxuries but economical and calculating; restless, energetic, fond of travel, especially on water, and admires grandeur in nature. Attends to own affairs in business but in matters of duty may make trouble for others. In speech plain, blunt, sarcastic and forceful; in politics or law, very aggressive. At best, original, scientific, sagacious, daring and creative, capable of much success through bold enterprise. Fine engineers, contractors, surgeons, chemists, detectives and sheriffs are born in this sign. The key phrase for Scorpio is "I desire."
