The 8th sign of the zodiac, Scorpio is a fixed water sign. In traditional astrology it was ruled by Mars, but following the discovery of Pluto it was reassigned. Many astrologers refer to Scorpio as being ruled by Pluto and co-ruled by Mars. Scorpio's glyph is said to represent a serpent, and its symbols are the snake, the scorpion and the eagle. Scorpio is associated with the sexual and eliminative organs. Some traits associated with the sign are extremes of emotion, revengefulness, suspicion, scientific leanings, altruism, penetrative qualities, investigative qualities, sarcasm, vindictiveness. We caution that much of this description does not take into account other factors in the chart.
