Scorpio Ascendant people show remarkable consistency and persistence. They can be reluctant to deviate from their original ideas, and do not want to hear, let alone follow, advice from others. They only want to achieve their desired results with all their might and great intensity.

In doing this, they sometimes put their own needs aside to dedicate themselves entirely to the success of their ventures. Scorpio Ascendant people are very idealistic and can be painstaking perfectionists. Because of this, their plans tend to be more intricate and complicated.


The planet Pluto rules Scorpio. In Greek mythology, Pluto is the great god Hades, lord of the underworld and keeper of souls . Hades is married to Persephone, who he kidnapped from her mother Demeter. Persephone eventually fell in love with him. This story is mentioned here because when a Scorpio Ascendant wants something, nothing will get in their way to have it, by any means possible.
