The Scorpio/Taurus Ascendant/Descendant
Relationship Axis (1st house/7th house)
Hello Cosmic Cohorts!
So many people inquisitively want to know whether or not they are astrologically compatible with a new boyfriend, girlfriend or partner. Many clients inquire about what they feel is a past life or karmic relationship. Knowing your partners 7th house cusp (the relationship house) and the ruler of that house indicates the type of partner you may attract or are attracted to and the method of relating within a relationship.
The Ascendant, or Rising sign, is the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This is the face we show the world, our “mask” for which our Sun hides behind. This is our outer personality, temperament and disposition as well as how we experienced our early home environment. It's the way others see us and also gives a hint of our physical appearance. The ruler of the Ascendant and the aspects (connections to other planets in your birth chart) further delineate and define your physical appearance. Most often Scorpio Rsing folks sharp or pointed features and penetrating, hypnotic eyes.
The Descendant, or 7th house cusp, its ruler and the aspects it makes in your birth chart, is symbolic of the type of partner you are attracted to. The 7th house is the house of all partnerships including marriage and legal contracts yet also considered the house of open enemies or the Defendant in a law suit.
Scorpio has a dual planetary rulership and shares a dynamic astrological symbolism. The ancient planetary ruler for Scorpio is assertive, warrior Mars, while the modern planetary ruler is transformative and regenerative Pluto. Pluto contacts are compelling, to say the least. Pluto ruled Scorpio is intense, private, penetrating and sexually alluring. If your Ascendant is in the sign of Scorpio, you're generally private, discreet, intuitively and automatically interpret nuances.The intensity and directness of the eyes or gaze are unrivalled. Scorpio Rising individuals could challenge anyone in a staring contest and not blink an eye!
With Venus ruled Taurus on the descendant you seek an affable, loving, charming, graceful and attractive partner. Attraction to a partner with those qualities who is artistic, creative, musical, sociable, loving, stable, sensitive, “earthy”, practical and sensual is likely. A male with Scorpio Rising would seek a feminine, deeply sensual and monogamous partner who is both reliable and somewhat predictable. A Scorpio Rising woman, although she seeks the same qualities as the male, the partner she may be attracted to could be more sensitive, in touch with their “yin” nature or even “prettier” than other males. The person would have strong personality, trustworthy, sensitive, dependable, sensual and hard working.
If you have a Scorpio Ascendant/Rising, knowing your partners Venus placement and the aspects it makes, will reveal much about how he/she will treat you in your relationship and how they will act in that relationship with you! Venus is what we value and are attracted to. In a man’s chart, the qualities of his Venus sign reveals the type of partner he's attracted to and values, while Mars demonstrates how he pursues who he's attracted to, and how he will “sex” his partner (along with other aspects). Oooo, isn't that an exciting bit of information to know :-) In a female chart, Mars is symbolic of her ideal masculine image, and what turns her on while her Venus placement reveals the qualities of the partner she's attracted to and values.
It's also possible for a Scorpio Ascendant to attract a partner who has Venus prominent in their chart. A prominent Venus would be in aspect to the Sun, Moon, Mars, or elevated in conjunction to the MC or conjunct or ruling their Ascendant (Libra/Taurus) or Descendant (Libra/Taurus) or Sun sign (Taurus/Libra).
Knowing the date, time and place of birth is important in making the determination of the Ascendant or Rising sign, the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This cusp sets up all the other house cusps/divisions of the houses or areas of life. If you'd like to share your own Scorpio relationship stories, post a response.
