Scorpion in the Rain

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

In Western astrology, you are a Scorpio.

From a young age, you have been fascinated by complexity. You may express this passion through several different outlets, but your core desire remains the same through all of it. Whether you’re a teacher, a cook, or a veterinarian, your heart is to understand people and the complicated systems we create.

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 “Water,” also known as the Chinese character “癸.” The nature of Water represents the joy you find in serving others and contributing to society. It highlights your adaptability to the world around you. Like water, you may appear simple at first glance, but the deeper you get into a relationship, the more the other person will see how essential you are to the world.

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 nature as Water describe you as a “Scorpion in the Rain.” Imagine a Scorpion sitting alone as it starts to rain. Its sharp eyes seem to capture the entire world. While it can move quickly and cause great harm with a single stab, it sits still, wet with rain. This image reveals your destiny.
