When reading the personality description of these traits above, please keep in mind that the ones discussed here are mainly indicative of the influence of their element, and the influence of their ruling planet.

Scorpio, the eighth sign of the zodiac and Mars is the ruler of this sign. As per Western Astrology Pluto is taken as its ruling planet and as per the Roman mythology, `Pluto’ is the God of the underworld and wealth which takes about 248 years to orbit the Sun. In the realm of astrology, Pluto is known as `The great Renewer’. It is associated with that part of an individual, which demolishes, with the purpose of renewing. It helps it bringing the hidden, but passionate, desires of a person to the surface. At times, it is believed that Pluto rules the eighth house, in collaboration with Mars. The individuals dominated by it display qualities like charisma, mystical charms, reliability, patience, inquisitiveness, suspicion, flexibility and secrecy. On the negative side, they tend to be self destructive.

However as per Vedic Astrology, Mars is the ruling planet of Scorpio and it is a centipede, fixed, watery and female sign which has a slender physique. It denotes Brahmins, resides in holes, its direction is north and is strong during daytime. It is reddish brown in colour, related with water and land, has a hairy physique and is very sharp (or passionate). Mars, the Mangal that made Mesha (Aries) so enterprising and energetic, plays a much more defensive and protective role here. It is defending its delicate watery/female core. The symbol chosen for this sign is the Scorpion, an animal that is known for its ability to defend itself. People with a prominent Scorpio can be very warm and sweet, it left unchallenged and unthreatened. They rather not change their position, but defend themselves if someone tries to harm them. Their tendency to be fixed can make them appear to be controlling, but their true nature is to nurture. The should not be teased. This Sign becomes strong, when it is in between 13degree.20’ to 16degree.20’
