Scorpion of the Mountains

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are a “Mountain.”

In Western astrology, you are a Scorpio.

You live with a vast understanding of the world around you. You are calm and quiet and generally don’t exert bursts of energy. People say that you are mature for your age and that it seems you’ve gained years of experience and wisdom. Because of these traits, you can act rationally and decisively.

Generally, you prefer to work alone. However, you can develop close relationships with people around you. When in a group, you always end up leading in some way or another. While you don’t come off as threatening, you do carry a sense of dominance. At the same time, you don’t intentionally place yourself in positions of authority. Instead, you try not to stand out wherever you go. Yet, despite your effort, it’s your destiny to lead others.

Your dominating personality also reveals itself in your love life. For example, you desire a relationship where you dictate the majority of decisions. This attitude doesn’t mean that you act forcefully, restoring to physical or verbal abuse. Instead, this desire is subconscious, and your actions are subtle and appear natural. As a result, people who fall in love with you find you charming and mysterious. This reaction leaves them in awe of you and willing to follow your dreams. However, this path of love doesn’t always go so smoothly, and sometimes people will leave you out of discomfort.

If you’ve studied astrology, you know that Western astrology classifies you as a Scorpio (or, to be more precise, your Sun sign is Scorpio). The characteristics of a Scorpio are persistence, intuition, and a sense of intrigue about people and the world. The Four Pillars of Destiny in Chinese astrology indicate that your sign is the Chinese character “Mountain,” also known as the Chinese character “戊.” This sign means that, like a mountain, you stand firm, not budging in the face of adversity. It is a destiny that sees the big picture and can embrace the good and the bad.

While Western astrology and the Four Pillars of Destiny are two different types of divination, they are alike in one way. The laws of the Eastern and Western worlds each determine the fate residing at the moment of your birth. Thus, you can interpret your destiny from both standpoints. Viewing these two interpretations side by side gives a more comprehensive view, showing how they complement each other to provide a three-dimensional understanding of astrology.

Your Scorpio traits combined with your essence as a Mountain describe you as a “Scorpion of the Mountains.”
