How do you Effectively Blend your Aries and Scorpio Selves?
Being an Aries Sun Scorpio Rising Is a Challenge for Your Outer Personality and a New Identity!
Aries and Scorpio can be explosively successful together, within you. You can "dance" within wonderfully, but there are inherent warnings.
It's allowed to analyze how to "break yourself down" into the most harmonious and cooperative parts, even if they are aggressive and determined. So, lets explore the challenge.
SO, WHAT IS A RISING SIGN?
Its NOT Just where the Sun is...Its also the Hour of Your Birth...Combined with Your Sun Sign.
There are 12 Rising Sign Possibilities, and they are the signs acting in a specific role
OK. There are 12 basic Sun Signs, and they are clustered around your 24 hour day. The planets Mercury, Venus, (Earth), Mars, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto. As the planets move they take their positions around the circle. When you are born, you are tagged within the 30 day "sign". So, let's say you are an Aries.
When you awake, you catch the sun's morning rays, at sun set, the earth keeps spinning for its next turn ---- THE RISING. But as the earth keeps turning EACH 2 HOURS, a new sign "appears" at the EASTERN HORIZON. Babies are certainly born, ANY TIME.
My eldest was born in 1971 as a Virgo. He was born at 6:31 AM. SO, HIS RISING SIGN is VIRGO RISING.
My second was a darling girl --- a Cancer. She was born at 8:30 PM on a hot summer night. When Daddy picked her up and kissed her, what was on the Eastern Horizon? In the dark, right out there --- Aquarius. She had Aquarius rising.
Just What is the Divine Doing?
WHAT IS THE DIVINE DOING? Making you a more specific, more clearly specialized individual. It is the HOUR of your birth that determines where your Mars in Leo (as a supposed example) is to be placed ----- in the 12th house the 8th house or the 4th house.
What are the HOUSES? There are 12 houses. Imagine 12 aspects of life -- Home Health, Travel, Career, Hopes. I won't list all 12 here, but where your planets INFLUENCE you is the House it sits in.
Imagine a CIRCUS WHEEL. On a given day the planets are in their position in one of the 12 seats. when you are born, at that moment, the Circus Wheel STOPS.
THERE! RIGHT THEN IN THAT MOMENT, TAKE A SELFIE IN YOUR MIND'S EYE! YOUR SPECIFIC IDENTITY FOR THIS LIFE TIME HAS BEEN EMBLAZONED IN THE HEAVENS. Your chart has been set!
Where is the Rising Sign at the Circus Wheel? As a baby, you don't know. A Doctor or a Parent has to tell you later in your life, OR IT IS DOCUMENTED.
The Rising Sign has to be determined. At the 1st House, you "mathematically" turn the Circus Wheel, and the placing of that Rising Sign determines WHAT HOUSE receives the energy, significance, (aspects) of that placement. Your "Mars in Cancer" or your "Jupiter in Scorpio" goes to the right house.
So, you see how your individuality AND your chart gets determined by your Rising Sign.
In doing interpretations for people I have always used this TWO LENSES approach. Think of the Sun and Rising as your INNER and OUTER persons, your PRIVATE and PUBLIC self.
In the "old days, before computers, the first thing an astrologer would ask was:
"What is the Day of your Birth dearie? And what was the Hour of your Birth? Find out from your Momma, to make this the best Horoscope it can be."
ARIES SUN AND SCORPIO RISING
So, there you sit in the burst of Spring time! But look at the complications in Spring that enliven your vitality.
The RAM sits upon the end of winter. Having come to a screeching halt, the Vernal Equinox begins, the Ram, to say the least, is animated! However, cold snaps come and Spring snow can surprise. Animals are bursting into the traffic lanes of streams and fields and rocky ledges and melting ice. Then dry hot suns beckon plants and creatures up and out into the great expanses of nature.
What a show! You say, yeah but how do I deal with my Scorpio Rising?
Ancient Astrology says that there are 4 types of "scorpio" -- Doves, Eagles, Scorpions and Lizards. Without elaborating, you should consider that your complex public self can achieve elevated social success, if you have given proper pondering to well planned moves.
Look at where the Eagle sits, at the end of the fall, see how the Dove has already made seasonal changes. The Lizard has made autumnal nest adjustments. The Scorpion itself is planning. Look at the past summer and fall harvest. The wealth or lack of it is in the storehouse. He can feel winter winds up in the peaks. He knows XMas and wintery celebrations are coming. That's why they are natural counters, cashiers, prognosticators.
People ask why they are like they are---because everything about resources, planning, spending are on their minds. They are serious about practically everything. No, they don't own everything, but they care about AS IF they did. All of this emerges from that Looking Back, Planning and Foreseeing that they do.
NATURE TENDS TO OVER EQUIP. But no one comes home at the end of the day and says "Man, am I over-equipped!"
"Lions and Tigers and Bears" can be what they are, but we are conscious human beings. We are over-equipped, but we have not come close to discovering our Divine Given Horsepower!
If an Aries can mellow out, just a bit, and allow his Outer Scorpion to cover complications with a less tense hand than he would usually have, maybe the TWO of you as ONE could be the Real Winner you want to be!
FROM THESE TWO descriptions, you will see how you can be more like your CORE. And counterbalancing, harmonizing and retrofitting can begin in earnest with a long happy look to the future with your loved ones, friends and family.
You Can Even be Royal and Defeat Yourself
