Features of Ascendants of Scorpio
If a person is born with Scorpio ascending, they put the whole force of their personality behind everything they do. They are not a halfway person. Rising-Scorpios have an intensity, a dynamism that seethes and roils under the surface. Their willpower and determination are formidable.
Though they are sometimes viewed as a lone wolf, they do have an ability to work with people-actually, to lead people. Ascendants of Scorpio are strongly persuasive and zealously pursue their goals, and in addition have the power to make others pursue the same goals. Clever, creative and resourceful, their fertile mind seems to be an inexhaustible source of ideas and suggestions. One of the things they do is find out how something works, to dissect it, study it and put it back together so that it works better. They can do great visionary work if they have Scorpio rising in their birth chart.
As a Scorpio Ascendant, they are happiest when they can control from behind the scenes. They tend to be secretive and reserved, and shun the spotlight because they cant work there unnoticed. If they are domineering, it is a subtle dominance, a kind of mind control. They are a charming, witty conversationalist, but the acute observer will soon notice that it is the other person who is doing most of the talking. They are usually quietly watching, waiting, observing - filing away information that will be useful later on. Rising-Scorpios have a reputation for a sharp tem-per; the reputation is deserved. When crossed, they can be cruel and biting.
Scorpio is the astrological sign of hidden passion; Ascendants of Scorpio tend to have a secret love affair at least one time in their lives, and usually marry more than once.
As an Ascendants of Scorpio, they tend to have sharp features, a prominent nose and large, hypnotic eyes. Sometimes their brows are thick and dark. Their body is agile and moves decisively.
The planet Pluto, which rules Scorpio, is very prominent in their horoscope. The influence of Pluto bestows powerful feelings and emotions, a sense of purpose, persistence, determination, plus the imagination and ability to make a successful start in a new direction. This planets influence also favours secrecy, suspicion, jealousy and cruelty.
