Scorpio Zodiac Symbol

The Scorpio zodiac symbol is represented by three types of Scorpios, and each represents a level of soul development. Scorpio's sun position gives them several options. They can follow the path of the nocturnal scorpion, who will sting others and even sting themselves to death for the pure pleasure of stinging, they can play out the role of a grey lizard, or they can transform into a glorious, soaring eagle, rising above earthly limitations.

Three Types of Scorpios

In Linda Goodman's Sun Signs, she refers to the encyclopaedia description of a scorpion as a 'nocturnal arachnid that attacks and paralysis its prey with a poison injected by the long, curved tail, used for both defence and destruction.' She goes on to say, 'It's sting is sometimes fatal.' According to Goodman however, Scorpios do not necessarily live up to their ruthless and dangerous reputation.

The lowest level depicted by the Scorpio zodiac sign is the scorpion. These are poisonous creatures that hide under rocks, always ready to attack. Scorpions are victims of their own negativity and resentment. Ancient astrology refers to scorpions as serpents. These creatures are fascinated by the mysteries of life and often dedicate their lives in one way or another to discover the secrets of the universe. The deadly nocturnal scorpion will first sting, then plan revenge, then sting again. When injured, they wish to annihilate their enemies.

Some Scorpios find themselves somewhere between the stinging scorpion and the eagle, and they are referred to as grey lizards. Lizards tend to display a neurotic concern with the self, and sometimes withdraw into tangled hatred at perceived injury, wishing destruction on their enemies. For grey lizards, revenge takes the form of bitterness and resentment held inside for centuries. They fail to rise above their circumstances, and often their brilliant potential remains dormant.

The highest level is the eagle who can soar to the greatest heights imaginable, and use their strength wisely and justly. Eagles have no fear and bravely face just about any challenge with pride and confidence. They never look back in anger and retaliation.

In essence, the Scorpio's journey in life is about moving from the depths to the great heights where eagles fly. It's never too late for the scorpion or the grey lizard to transform into an eagle. All they need to do is call on Pluto's considerable power and it's theirs for the taking. Remember, Pluto's symbol is the triumphant phoenix, rising from the smouldering ashes, and Scorpio personifies the resurrection from the grave.
