Scorpio With Aquarius Rising: Oddly Intelligent & Rebellious
I spoke with my friend, Ben, yesterday. He's been the music director for a school system for about thirty-five years now. The kids are not in class but he is.
Ben has opted to go to work, at work, every day. His peers can't believe it but he says he prefers to keep his work life and his home life, separate. He's a Scorpio with Aquarius rising. It's important to mention, Uranus is angular; conjunct his descendent.
I've been writing about getting OUT and I was struck by this action he's taken.
It reminds me of when 9/11 happened. He was completely unaffected by that in that he had no fear.
"What are you going to do?" I asked, the day after.
"Same thing I always do. Go to work and fix people's bow grips."
He will not be deterred!
He's got an Aries moon and a 10th house sun. There's just something about him and his intelligence is a big piece of it.
Have you met someone with this configuration?
I have not met anyone with this configuration, but I've noticed similar energy with my Scorpio Sun & Ascendant, Aquarius Moon cousin. Sun/Mars/Pluto/Asc are conjunct in Scorpio, her Moon is in the 4th. Her Descendant ruler, Venus in Libra, is in the 11th. Despite any catastrophes that may occur, she carries on like nothing happened and we are all jealous of this ability. She recently got challenged by the fixed energy in the skies, but she still is not as affected as most of us are. She's resourceful and finds ways to adjust to any new reality, to her benefit.
I dated a man with the same configuration for several years. He had a lot in common with Ben. He was always matter-of-fact about things and unapologetic.
The astrologer Chris Brennan has Sun Scorpio and Aquarius conj Moon rising
My dad is an Aquarius w/ a Scorpio rising.
Retired as the head of science department at a vocational school, specializing in biotech & aquaculture. Probably the most unique and brilliant man
I've ever met.
Taught me how to talk to anyone from the local beekeepers to the president of a Uni.
He's the youngest of 6 w/ 4 older sisters, his dad passed when he was 3, my Grammy raised those kids alone. It never occurred to him to raise (me) a girl child any different than a boy child. It was all about knowledge, passion & practice.
Anyway, Scorp/Aqua is uniquely focused, will help you out immensely but YOU must come correct with the same level of passion and devotion or they won't waste their time on you.
& I just checked, my dad has an early Pisces moon.
That explains the ability to slip between worlds.
