The twelve basic personality types outlined by the zodiac signs are just that: basic. But the situation is much more complex, and Scorpio’s personality differs according to its three decades.
Obviously, not everyone will fit perfectly into one of the twelve categories, but astrology is much more complex than many people realize.
The Sun Sign is just a starting point. But, if you don’t feel that you find yourself in the basic characterization of your zodiac sign, it may be because of its three decades.
Each zodiac sign is divided into three astrological decans made up of 10-day periods of the zodiac month, each having a special way of expressing the qualities of that sign.
Each decan carries the general qualities of the sign it describes, but it shows how certain qualities are accentuated in some people, while others born under the same sign behave and respond very differently.
You don’t need any complicated chart to study your decan, you need your date of birth.
Scorpio on decans
Scorpio is a water sign ruled by Mars and Pluto.
While the traditional Scorpio season dates are between October 23rd and November 21st, those dates are split into three 10-day periods to form the three different types of Scorpio or Scorpio decans, influenced by the other two water signs Cancer and Pisces.
In general, water signs are sensitive, caring, and emotional. They tend to live a rich inner life, but they have to be careful who they let into their heart because they tend to be more vulnerable than the other signs.
Cancer loves privacy and is highly devoted to his family.
Scorpio is sensual and mysterious. Pisces are the dreamers of the zodiac and show great empathy.
First decan (October 23 – November 2)
Resistance is the keyword for the 1st decan Scorpio.
Those born during this period are ambitious, of course, but they won’t make much noise on the way to their ultimate goal.
They might not seem like they’re making a big effort, but they have a knack for slipping under everyone’s radar.
No one realizes how much control this Scorpio has over a situation until it’s all over and he somehow manages to get everything he wanted.
Second decan (November 3 – November 12)
This mysterious, magnetic, manipulative version of Scorpio is ruled by Neptune and Jupiter with a Pisces influence.
Psychological enigmas, the emotions of Scorpios born during this period are buried in endless layers.
They are fascinated by puzzles and mind games and have a way of making you want to please them even as they test how long you can last.
Third decan (November 13 – November 21)
Not all versions of Scorpio want to see how many people they are willing to please.
Decan III may seem the darkest and scariest of all, but ruled by Cancer and the Moon, this Scorpio is only here to observe.
Don’t think he’ll be totally different, he can do all the standard stuff if he feels like it, but that’s not who he is.
They won’t let you discover their vulnerabilities any sooner than other Scorpio decans, but they’re also less likely to take advantage of you and you.
