Prepare to get down and get real.

When the sun enters Scorpio, transformations occur. After working on shining our light outward during Leo season and getting organized during Libra season, it's now time to enter the underworld and work on our shadow selves. This season challenges your sense of desire, and you may be forced to work through things you find taboo or frightening. Scorpio season is ultimately about truth and the transformation that accepting reality can bring. It's time for authenticity. This is also one of the most sultry seasons, with sexual energy running high. One thing is for sure: When the sun is in Scorpio, things are never dull!

Sun in Scorpio Personality

"Still waters run deep" in those with their sun in Scorpio. Despite the deep sea dive it takes to reach them, they're a sign whose depth of emotion and loyalty are actually profound. On account of their mysterious aura, Scorpios have pioneered and perfected the concept of dark sex appeal.

Positive Traits

Propelled by Pluto and traditionally Mars, Scorpions possess a drive to maintain a long-term and strategic vision. Their dark, brooding—and dare I say—stubborn mind ensures they untangle any and all mysteries. Though fixed in nature, the sun in Scorpio gives transformative properties to the native.

Negative Traits

"Once bitten, twice shy" defines the Scorpio ethos. However, what qualifies as a "bite" can be ambiguous, and they can react somewhat unreasonably to relatively minor offenses. Due to a fear of intimacy, Scorpios sometimes expect openness while offering less in return. Constantly fearing betrayal and disappointment, the Scorpion stings preemptively.
