CHILDREN OF SCORPIO
October 24th to November 23rd
is ruled by Mars, the
planet of dynamic energy, and therefore the children born
during that month when the Sun is passing through this sign
are filled with a force that must have an outlet somewhere
partake in all the Martial qualities, either good or bad,
according to the way the Sun
is placed and aspected, and they are always ready to take
up an argument or a fight; either on their own behalf or for
someone else; they are never content with half measures, either
they go to one extreme or the other, good or bad.
Those who show the good side of Scorpio have splendid constructive
and executive abilities. They are brusque but honest and just,
indefatigable workers, and always ready to sacrifice themselves
for the good of others by rebelling against oppression or
in other ways unselfishly working for the cause they have
those who show the bad side of Scorpio not only refuse to
work themselves but become demagogues who incite others to
anarchy and lawlessness and destruction. These people are
social fire-brands and very dangerous to the community. But
here is one redeeming feature about them and that is that
they are not underhanded; whatever they do is open and aboveboard.
children of Scorpio usually have a very uncertain temper and
a sarcastic tongue that bites like the sting of the scorpion,
when the turn that side of their nature. Therefore the parents
of these children should take them in hand as early as possible
and teach them self-control by every means within their power;
also strive to soften the Mars ray and instill into them a
more kindly spirit. This may be very difficult because the
sign Scorpio gives a very determined nature, still, in childhood's
years it is plastic to a certain extent and can be best worked

and penetrating mind, also a personal magnetism that makes
them very attractive to those with whom they come in contact.
seem to be most contented in military life where there is
sharp and strict discipline.
care should be taken to teach these children sex hygiene,
for the sign Scorpio rules the generative and eliminative
organs, whose functions are stimulated by the presence of
the Sun in Scorpio, so that if the person is not morally and
physically clean, much trouble may be expected.
children also make excellent surgeons and if they are taught
to use surgery only for constructive purposes they can do
a great deal of good in the world.
this depends in a considerable measure upon the early training,
for there is a destructive side to the Scorpio nature which
would make it very dangerous from the spiritual viewpoint
for such a person to take up a vocation that offers scope
for malpractice; he would then contract a very heavy debt
under the law of consequence, which must be paid in sorrow
and suffering either in this or later lives.
