SUN IN SCORPIO
The 3 water signs CANCER, SCORPIO & PISCES are imaginative, emotional, nurturing, wise and they are very good listeners! They can be moody and unpredictable. Although they find it easy to experience strong emotions, it’s hard for them to communicate their feelings clearly. Water signs correspond to the PAGE, KNIGHT, QUEEN & KING of CUPS in the Tarot.
in its Yin (female) aspect is linked to Proserpine, Goddess of the Underworld. Her influence gives you your perceptiveness and your strength of Character.
In Greek mythology Proserpine is Persephone who, while out playing as a young girl, was attracted by a strange looking plant. This illustrates Scorpio’s natural instinct for research, their tendency to explore in depth and their need to get to the root of the matter. While she was investigating the unknown shrub, Proserpine was abducted by powerful Pluto and taken to his underworld kingdom. At first she resisted the intensity of her experience but she endured it and eventually came to embrace the six months of each year she spent in the dark lands of Hades. Under her influence, Scorpios have the ability to come to terms with difficult or painful times in their lives and then to help others benefit from their experience.

When Pluto triggers your Birth Chart it usually brings powerful experiences that transform you or the way you live your life.

Pluto in Capricorn is teaching Scorpios to stop messing about with their power and use it constructively. It must be directed towards meaningful goals, which should have strong personal significance for you. Pluto is telling you:
Trust your power.
Use it wisely, use it well,
use it as a force for good in the World.
Respect it and it will be your friend.
Fear it and it will become your foe.
Pluto will be in Scorpio for 17 years, and its influence on your life is very long term. Scorpios are affected on a regular basis when Pluto is triggered by other bodies in the Solar System and when individual planets move into your sign.
