Scorpio rising: the Laser-beam look

The "Medusa Stare" (my phrase) for a Scorpio ascendant--I also credit this to a Scorpio Sun, Moon, Mars or Venus in Scorpio, 8th house Sun or Pluto (especially in a harmonious energy pattern to the ascendant), and even a midheaven in Scorpio: "I'll burn a hole through you or anything that irritates me--and don't try to hide behind a wall, door, tree, building, or any other object because I'll scorch that too in order to burn you with my eyes."

Scorpio Ascendant people have a lot of presence. There is something about them that tells the world that they are not to be pushed around. Their manner commands respect, and in some cases, fear. Scorpio rising people can be quiet or loud, but they always seem powerful and determined.


You either love or hate Scorpio rising people— they are rarely people who go through life unnoticed. In fact, some of them are confused when faced with the fact that they get such strong reactions from others. They seem to look right through people, seeing through superficiality. This can be quite intimidating to some, and intriguing to others.


Scorpio rising people, in their dealings with others, look for answers by reading between the lines. Surface details are discarded when they are getting a feel for people and situations around them.

Scorpio rising people value their privacy so much, it can border on paranoia. They have a strong need to control their environment and are experts at strategy. Rarely people who will blow their chances with impatience, they plan out their moves carefully and deliberately, relying on their awesome ability to feel out others and situations.

With Scorpio on the 1st house cusp (Scorpio Rising), life is viewed as a battle in which triumph and defeat often feature. Intensity is a key mode of your self-expression. You need to balance this with some stability and practicality. You project yourself with energy and willpower and are willing to stake your life to accomplish your aims. It’s futile to try to convince you that something cannot be done, since you will do it or die trying. You fortify your objectives with a tremendous, fixed, emotional intensity. You have the ability to draw on hidden sources of power to reach your goals.(A dear friend of mine, a great-grandmother, has given her Scorpio ascendant and Sun genes down through the generations: even the newborns in her family have "the eyes.")


Scorpio rising natives are drawn to down-to-earth, natural partners. Reliability in their partner is very important. They generally look for complete commitment and have little patience with flighty partners.
