Scorpio has a passionate nature

Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac. The zodiac sign of Scorpio runs from October 24th to November 22nd.

This star sign is symbolized by a scorpion which represents the passionate and intense nature of Scorpios.

What is the ruling planet of Scorpio?

The ruling planet of Scorpio is Mars and Pluto.

Many signs have more than one ruling planet and each planet exerts slightly different influences on their specific zodiac sign. In addition to this, we are all affected to some degree by the seasons of the zodiac signs, no matter which sign we were born under.

Mars was the Roman god of war, and Scorpios can certainly be extremely assertive, even controlling, when in pursuit of their goals.

Pluto’s influence can best be described as hypnotic, shadowy, and mysterious. This perfectly reflects the depths of emotion that those under the Scorpio sign keep hidden away.

Pluto influences those aspects of the Scorpio personality that are introspective. Mars governs the outward manifestation of restless energy and determination that is so typical of this sign. 

What is the element of Scorpio?

The Scorpio zodiac sign is a fixed water sign. Many people assume that Scorpio is a fire sign.

Fixed signs are generally fairly consistent in their approach to life, but the element of water, being fluid and mutable by nature, softens any rigidity or obsessive thinking or behavior in this sign.

Water is all about emotions and Scorpios are known to be intense and deep in their emotional lives.

Water signs are usually highly intuitive and enigmatic. The fact that Scorpio is a fixed water sign brings security and stability to the intuitive, emotional reactions that are common with this sign. 

Positive Key Traits 

Scorpios are passionate, loyal, and fiercely independent. They are strong-willed and determined and can make excellent leaders as they lead by example and bring out the best in others. There is not much that will stop a Scorpio once they have set their minds on something. 

Scorpios are also brave, loyal, honest, and ambitious. They will defend their loved ones from any threat or danger without a second thought. They also stick to their commitments like no other sign of the zodiac. 

If you value honesty in others, look for a Scorpio! They always tell the truth and will not tolerate dishonesty in others. 

Scorpios do not see or set limits in their own lives, making them one of the most positive zodiac signs. 

Negative Key Traits 

Scorpios have some negative traits to their personalities that can make them quite difficult.

They have a tendency towards jealousy and often see their whole lives as a competition, in which they need to be the best, to have the best, and to win at everything they do.

They can be a very private sign, and tend to have strong opinions.

But the only constant in life is change, and the personal strength of Scorpio can help them harness their strengths and control their weaknesses.

It is especially supportive for those who feel unloved. Rhodochrosite teaches the Heart to assimilate painful emotions and experiences without shutting down.

If you are the impulsive type of Scorpio try wearing a Rhodochrosite necklace or bracelet to promote patience and discernment before charging ahead at full speed chasing your dreams. 

Fire Agate 

Fire agate has a strong protective function for the wearer and is ideal for Scorpios, and indeed anyone who feels under attack from unscrupulous individuals who seek to undermine their achievements or confidence. 

Holding this Scorpio stone facilitates introspection and brings up any issues or problems for healing. Scorpios are intrinsically honest, but many find that being honest with themselves is a challenge that needs to be overcome.

Scorpios do not often have problems with setting and maintaining boundaries, but this does not mean that they do not suffer from energy draining from others.

This Scorpio gemstone helps you strengthen personal boundaries and stabilizes your aura. 

Rose Quartz

We can all benefit from the loving vibration of this beautiful stone, which is the best stone for unconditional, universal love. Its influence extends to love on every level, from romantic love between partners to the love of family, friends, and the natural world.

Rose Quartz opens us up to Divine love and cosmic consciousness. It is healing, supportive, nurturing, and protective. 

If you are looking for a new romantic partner, place Rose Quartz crystals in pairs in the relationship corner of your home, or in the bedroom.

Some say that Rose Quartz jewelry is so effective in drawing new love to you that it often requires Amethyst to calm things down. This being said, its a very luck stone for Scorpios to wear. 

Rose Quartz is gentle in its action when drawing off negative energies. It replaces these energies with loving, compassionate vibes that will benefit you and everyone around you. 


Deep blue Sodalite jewelry stimulates the pineal gland and the Third Eye. It deepens meditation and unites logic with intuition.

This Scorpio stone instills a desire to uncover the truth in all situations, and in yourself. It brings the courage needed to stand up for yourself and remain true to your beliefs and principles.

Which Stones should Scorpios not Wear? 

If you are using Red Jasper it is a good idea to keep away from Blue Lace Agate as these two healing crystals have conflicting effects on the emotions. 

Likewise, if using Citrine, avoid Clear Quartz or Ruby. 

How Should I Cleanse My Scorpio Birthstones? 

All of the Scorpio stones and crystals mentioned in this article can be cleansed with pure, running water.

To restore your birthstone crystals to their optimum vibrational levels, place them near an amethyst geode or amethyst cluster overnight. Amethyst absorbs negative vibrations your other crystal may have acquired during the day.

Final thoughts

Remember you are strong, Scorpio, everybody respects you, wear your birthstones and Scorpio healing crystals proudly, and never forget to shine. Let your strong energy field and clear thinking inspire others!
