Jupiter in Scorpio Intuitive, Magnetic, Self-Reliant

Jupiter is the largest of all the planets in Astrology. It is known as the “greater benefic,” meaning it is also the most beneficial of all the planets. Jupiter is responsible for the expansion, growth, and optimism in our lives. It symbolizes good luck and fortune, and is associated with the higher mind, philosophy, truth, and religion. Jupiter has a reputation for blessing us with luck and abundance, and this could come from its ability to give us a larger lens through which we can view the world.

It makes for an interesting — and complex — cosmic combination when outgoing Jupiter moves into inward-looking Scorpio. The normally optimistic outlook of the giant planet is tempered by a need to consider the complications that could arise from our actions. While this energy may take our greatest hopes and dreams down a notch, it does offer a much-needed reality check that helps us get concrete results.

Brutal Truths About Loving A Scorpio

Don’t even bother trying to figure a Scorpio out.

True story: I was once minding my business, drinking green tea in Starbucks, when this woman I’d never met approached me and said, “Are you a Scorpio? You guys are horrible people.”

She was mostly right: I am a Scorpio, and I am a horrible person. But being a horrible person has little to do with my astrological sign, which if anything should be one of my few redeeming qualities.

Here’s why: Scorpios are regarded as the sexiest sign in the zodiac, and we’re also too honest to say that we don’t enjoy bragging about that fact. (And it is a fact, or at least as much fact as the rest of astrology is.)

We’re a fixed sign ruled by both Mars and Pluto, because why settle for one planet when you’re this cool? (And yes, Pluto was declared a planet again, which we all saw coming because, well, I’ll get to that in a minute.)

As amazing as we are, dating a Scorpio isn’t always easy — just ask this guy. If you are dating (or have dated) a Scorpio, chances are the following things are true.

And if you’re planning on dating a Scorpio zodiac sign, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

The History Of Scorpio

THE HISTORY OF SCORPIO

The astrological sign of Scorpio does not coincide with the constellation of Scorpius. In the zodiac, this sign is located between Libra and Sagittarius, taking the eighth 30 degrees on the zodiacal circle. Scorpio is a fixed sign that comes after the autumn has begun in Libra. From a point of Libra’s fallen Sun and the darkness that has come, the end of life as we knew it since the spring, Scorpio is the fixed quality of this change. This is exactly why we observe it as a sign of death. As opposing to Taurus in which everything blossoms through the stable phase of spring, in Scorpio everything dies down, falls asleep and nature ends one cycle to enter the cold winter.

To understand the significance of this constellation, we have to be aware of the fact that the claws of this scorpion represent the constellation of Libra. The name Scorpius speaks of one specific scorpion, rather than a creature itself, pointing to the specific nature of the sign, too. This constellation has been recognized by the Babylonians, just like many other constellations, and its name from that time can literally be translated as “the creature with the burning sting.”

The biggest star in the constellation of Scorpius is Antares, also known as “the rival of Mars” because of its reddish color. It represents the heart of the scorpion and it is one of the four royal stars, known as the Guardian of the West, which connects it to all western locations on the map of the world.
