Scorpio. Scorpion. Same as their animal symbol, Scorpios are often intimidating and misunderstood.

It is associated with the sun, since, in most versions of the legend, Phoenix dies by fire and then is reborn again and again. Because Scorpio’s governing planet is Pluto, they can go out on a limb, in mind, spirit, body. They like situations that can be hateful for other signs, and find comfort in that which is isolated or foreign. They are focused, balanced, ambitious, intuitive and, as it comes easy for them, they can also be manipulative.
