Scorpion of the Earth

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are “Earth.”

In Western astrology, you are a Scorpio.

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 “Earth,” also known as the Chinese character “己.” This sign is like a vast field with a harsh climate. Farmers work the ground, hoping to gain crops from the dry soil. This image reveals your mission to create and nurture beauty out of challenging environments.

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 characteristics combined with your nature as an Earth sign describe you as the “Scorpion of the Earth.” Like a scorpion buzzing about the dry and barren land, you too know how to survive in harsh conditions. Even in the face of less than ideal circumstances, you desire to create new ideas and guide and educate those around you. You achieve your goals through persistence, compassion, and focus. These traits, alongside your patience and tenacity, allow you to thrive in life.
