The Scorpio Ascendant (as Compared to the Gemini Ascendant)

Post by Khoo Hock Leong » Wed Mar 01, 2017 5:38 pm

HI Learned Members

In a recent post I mentioned that one astrologer cflassified Gemini (sidereal) Ascendant as having no functional malefics since all the Dusthanas (6th, 8th and 12th) have no Moolatrikona Signs overlaying them. So Gemin Ascendant people are lucky.

How about Scorpio Ascendant?

Here all the planets work to support the Ascendant making the individual a very POWERFUL person.

Mars rules 1st and 6th. Mars ruling this combination of houses means that the person can never be defeated by enemies. Mars defeat enemies in the 6th and Mars is also the active Lagna Lord.

Moon, Sun and Jupiter are functional benefics based on Parasara dictum. Moon rules 9th, Sun rules 10th and Jupiter rules 2nd and 5th. If in a particular chart, either there is a conjunction of Sun and Moon OR if Sun and Moon exchange signs, then it is even better (Sun conjunct Moon in this case is good rather than being a new Moon phenomenon which most traditional Parasara astrologers decry, since in this case, it becomes a Karma Dharma Addipathi Yoga for a Scorpio Asendant. Nevertheless in my opinion Sun conjunct Moon is always good regardless of the Ascendant as here the Moon has come to rest on Shiva's forhead).

Venus rules 11th and 7th for a Scorpio Ascendant. Venus ruling 12th gives the person much pleasures and luxuries.

Saturn rules 3rd and 4th. Saturn ruling 3rd gives strength since besides being a natural malefic that rules an Uppachaya house, this is Jupiter's powerful house based on Vedic numerology (3 is Jupiter's super number although 5 is Jupiter's spiritual number) and Saturn traditionally likes the environment of a STRONG Jupiter.
Saturn ruling 4th gives the power over the masses.

Mercury rules 8th and 11th. By ruling the 8th, the Mercurian energy is combined with the Saturnian (karaka of the 8th) and Martian (natural ruler of the 8th) energy giving a person a sharp mind (both dexterity and ability to delve into details). Mercy's exaltation sign of Virgo on the 11th, gives a mind that is able to rapidly assess any situation so as to acquire gains. In Lal Kitab, Mercury is no good when it has influence over the 8th, but not so for Parasara Astrology.

Ketu rules 1st and 2nd for a Scorpio Ascendant, Ketu is like a personal planet for this Ascendant, so Ketu would help this Ascendant in whatever way it can.

Rahu 4th and 8th. Rahu is very strong in the 4th, the ability to sway the masses. The number 4 is Rahu's powerful vedic number although 8 is Rahu's spiritual number, and Rahu happens to rule the 8th house as well for a Scorpio Ascendant. The combination of 4th and 8th houses ruled by Rahu for a Scorpio Asendant means that the person is very knowledgeable in the occult sciences (12th house is more for spirituality but it does have its association with occult sciences as well being 5th of the 8th ie. ability to use occult sciences to gain spiritually in the future).

Best Regards
Khoo

Any association of Venus with the 7th whether via rulership or contacting the 7th lord or placed in a strategic position with reference to the 7th house including placing in the 7th house itself, aspecting the 7th house or 7th lord etc., gives benefits to the individual. It is a finger of God, a sign of auspiciousness.

For a Scorpio Ascendant, Venus rules the 7th.

Okay, Sun ruling 10th for a Scorpio Ascendant is functionally neutral based on Parasara's dictum. But it still denotes a powerful individual which is what we are talking about for a Scorpio Ascendant.

Definitely true that Scorpio Ascendant is a very powerful individual, however I have observed that it is also a very Karmic sign/ascendant. The individual has to take on a lot more burden and responsibility in their life compared to some other ascendants. It could be that they are provided with that power as they have to fulfill difficult karmic duties and face many hurdles and obstacles in life.
Warm Regards

Being a Scorpio Asc myself, I totally agree with Rita. Things which are taken for granted by a lot of people, come with great difficulty to us.
