Mars in Scorpio: What this astrological placement really means
Scorpio is now ruled by Pluto, but in Hellenistic astrology it was actually ruled by Mars. Still, Mars feels right at home in Scorpio, and it makes sense: Scorpio is the sign that rules sex, and Mars is definitely a passionate planet.
Then take Pluto, the planet of transformation and rebirth, and we begin to get a clear picture of how the presence of Mars in Scorpio leads to intensity and unparalleled depth.
As mindbodygreen astrologer Desiree Roby Antila previously said, Mars in Scorpio people are relentless, with the ability to go through, work around, overcome and overcome any obstacle. “They have a very strong drive, but again, they’re fixed, so whenever Mars is in a fixed sign, it makes a person quite stubborn,” she notes.
It can look like you have a hard time letting things go, holding a grudge, being vindictive, etc., which shows Scorpio energy. They also have a tendency to push themselves to the point of exhaustion, something to be wary of.
And according to astrologer Molly Pennington, Ph.D., placing Mars in Scorpio is likely to feel mysterious. “People can just walk up to them, not knowing they’re dealing with a scorpion, and it’s about to sting,” she explains.
This is all part of the Scorpio Mars strategy of protection and protection against vulnerability. “There’s a deep, emotional side to them, almost like the wars of the heart that are deep inside it all,” Pennington says, adding that these wars are often long-lasting and bring a “battlefield” mindset to all areas of their lives. .
Take Taylor Swift as a classic example of Mars Scorpio energy. She has Mars in Scorpio, and her insistence on re-recording all her music to get the rights under her own name is a prime example of this placement’s willingness to win at any cost.
