Your Sun Sign
Scorpio the Scorpion
Scorpio is determined, strong, intense, and often controlled. Anything that is superficial doesn’t appeal to the scorpion. It’s all or nothing! Scorpio is never content to look only at the surface of matters. Scorpio digs deep, questions motives, and instinctively feels what is going on in the environment around him or her.

Fixed Star(s) Near Your Sun
Sun Conjunct Princeps

Progressed Sun: Turning Points in Your Life
|We carry our Sun sign with us throughout our entire lives. If I’m a Scorpio, I’ll always be a Scorpio. However, in secondary progressions, the Sun “progresses” in a symbolic sense through our natal Sun sign, and then beyond it to subsequent signs. Secondary progressions are “a day for a year”, and because the Sun moves just under one degree per day, our Sun symbolically progresses just short of one degree every year of our lives. Because there are 30 degrees for every sign, if I was born in the latter days of a Scorpio Sun, my Sun would progress to the sign of Sagittarius in my early childhood, and to the sign of Capricorn in my early to mid-30’s. If I was born near the beginning of a Scorpio Sun, however, my progressed Sun would enter Sagittarius close to my 30th birthday, and to Capricorn in my late 50’s. The changeover of signs marks a critical turning point in a person’s life. At the very end of a sign (just before changing signs), individuals may make life-changing, impulsive decisions.|
Your progressed Sun enters Sagittarius at age 27. The ages of 26 to 28 mark a critical turning point in the development of your personality. After some sort of crisis of consciousness, and perhaps elimination of circumstances that have been limiting your growth, you begin to feel lighter, more free, and decidedly more outgoing. Your desire to learn increases, and your sense of humor is enriched. You are more flexible during this period as well.
Your progressed Sun enters Capricorn at age 56. The ages of 55 to 57 mark a critical turning point in the development of your personality. You become more practical, mindful, and concerned about your personal security. You are a self-starter, and you become more shrewd and focused on your goals.
Degree Meanings of your Sun
Sabian symbols present imagery associated with the degree of your Sun in Scorpio. Either of the following may apply, depending on the exact degree of your Sun:
If Sun is 2-3 degrees Scorpio:
“A House-Raising Party In A Small Village Enlists The Neighbors’ Cooperation”
If Sun is 3-4 degrees Scorpio:
“A Youth Carries A Lighted Candle In A Devotional Ritual”
Harmonic Degree Meaning:
The following is the degree meaning of your Sun (3 degrees Scorpio) based on harmonic sign influences.*
“Careful planning and an enterprising nature enable him to succeed in business pursuits or political activities. Strives to enrich his life.”
Numerology of October 26
You were born on the 26th day, which reduces to a 8. You are enterprising and success-oriented. Others turn to you for support, as they see you as a tower of strength. Factoring in the 10th month of October, you are a number 9. Although you appear quite solid and practical, it might surprise some that you rely very much on your intuition, not only on cold hard facts. You possess excellent foresight. Factoring in your birth year gives you your Birth Path Number—a highly personal number for you.
Most Favorable Days of the Month are 8, 17, 26, especially when these days (of any month) fall on a Saturday; and/or when the Sun is in Capricorn. The best colors for you are dark ones–dark grey, black, dark blue, and deep purple. You might want to wear amethyst, sapphire, black pearl, or black diamond next to your skin.
