Scorpio Rising—Scorpio Ascendant

Scorpio rising or Scorpio ascendant 3D astrological model

Scorpio rising symbolizes that you are self-controlled, stoical, reserved in expression and silent in your defense. You have great strength, depth, and the determination to overcome all adversaries. Willful and self-reliant, you need to overcome lingering resentment and jealousy. Some say this is the strongest and most difficult ascendant of all: the "razor-edged path" only taken by those who have been given the strength and power to do so. Devil or angel, with Scorpio Rising the personality and the spirit do battle unto death. And it is the personality that must evolve through death and rebirth.

You are magnetic and very aware of the sexual energy in your environment, and have the ability to drastically alter your surroundings as well. You appear to others as intense, passionate, secretive, penetrating and sensitive. You know how to get to the heart of things, and gravitate to positions of power and control. There is a great reserve and hidden power with Scorpio Rising that is felt and respected by others. It's not easy to know you, for you're a deep individual and silent even in suffering. You're courageous, persistent, and cool-headed in a crisis. The heavier the burden, the more you'll quietly see your task through to the end.

As you are intuitive and psychic, there is all the more reason for you to protect others from the accuracy of your sarcasm. You have healing power if used appropriately. The house your Pluto is in shows experiences necessary in developing self-awareness and your expression as an individual. Pluto's sign and aspects indicate your ease or difficulty in doing this. Heavy afflictions to Pluto can indicate viciousness, as you are very perceptive of others' weaknesses.
