Who is more intense and violent a rising Scorpio or a sun Scorpio? I am a rising Scorpio with a Sun in Gemini and a Moon in Scorpio. I used to have a very bad temper, I have calmed down a lot of the years, but sometimes I still get the urge to strike out.
Hi, Curious. I don’t think you can judge something like this without considering, Mars. A Scorpio (Sun or Rising) with Mars in Pisces in the 12th house would use subterfuge as a tactic. Gaslighting and the like.
In contrast, Scorpio with Mars in a Fire sign would fight overtly. Mars in Aries strikes first. Mars in Leo might stage a dramatic battle or fight creatively, etc.
Also, when you’re talking, “cruelty”, then Mars would be involved with Saturn somehow. You get the idea. Intensity and violence take different forms. Bottom line, when evaluating, Scorpio, check Mars!
Does anyone else have ideas on this?
