Gemstone Scorpion

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

In Western astrology, you are Scorpio.

You find meaning and joy in pushing yourself. For example, you deliberately take part in a challenging project at work or wake up early to go for a run. In every area of life, you work hard and always desire to grow.

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 “Jewel,”  also known as the Chinese character “辛.” This sign reveals a jewel-like beauty. The Jewel indicates perfectionism, not accepting any dirt or smudge to taint its glory.

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 essence as a Jewel describe you as a “Gemstone Scorpion.
