The Cosmic Backbone

Here, Scorpio gives us the gift of the ultimate cosmic backbone. It helps us feel completely in charge of our actions, and our destiny.

This placement is very difficult to control. It can be intensely willful and never afraid to explore the darker, more vulnerable side of life. The Mars in Scorpio individual has a deep intuition that helps them uncover the truth even before they have all the facts.

They demand honesty from those around them. When they sense someone is being dishonest — and they will, thanks to Pluto’s perception — they’ll investigate until they find out what’s really going on. Their hunches tend to actually mean something – and when they listen and tune into their gut, they can’t go wrong.
