Results of Sun in Scorpio

Cruel & Aggressive

Classical book Saravali states that Scorpio Sun natives are aggressive, violent, and thus fond of war-like activities. This can be well explained by the characteristics of Mars-ruled Scorpio.

Mars is a fiery and aggressive planet that rules Aries and Scorpio. The latter, Scorpio is the violent and darker side of Mars, as being the 8th zodiac sign denoting sudden and dramatic events.

Moreover, Scorpio is an emotional water sign in Vedic astrology and this creates the hot steam-like effect when combined with the fiery Sun. As a result, these natives act according to their intense steam-like emotions.

With that being said, they are prone to acting without thinking first. This explains how the fiery planet Sun in the aggressive Scorpio sign produces a person who is cruel and likes to initiate wars or disputes.

However, as Sun as the planet of righteousness is dignified in this sign, these natives usually avoid abusing ohers iwth their aggression. That is, they apply extreme measures in handling the situation only when needed and nothing else helps.


This combination makes these natives also extremely fearless for various astrological indications.

Firstly, Sun is the authoritative, fiery, the kingly planet that rules fierce and fearless Leo.

Secondly, Scorpio is the 8th zodiac sign which signifies fears, darkness, mystery, everything hidden and unknown, uncertainty, etc.

Hence, as Sun is favorably placed in a sign of its friend, it indicates the courage to discover the mysterious and hidden parts of life, which transforms their mentality.

They have the courage to face their fears as well which makes them very fearless as a result.

A dignified Mars as the planet of courage can further extend their fearlessness. Alternatively, a weak Mars decreases their valor as well as righteousness.

Mysterious Mentality

With that being said, these natives are driven to investigate deep secrets and by doing that discover the mysterious part of life.

This trait enables them to gather a lot of knowledge of such topics that involve in-depth research or courage to investigate the darkest sides of life.

While they seek for deepest secrets of life, the Sun lights up the dark environment of Scorpio for them. As a result, they are able to find their path through uncertainty and darkness.

During the process, it creates a mentality that is very mysterious, deep, endless, and which is hard to understand for a common person.

It is further supported by the fact that Sun is in 4th from its own sign Leo. The 4th signifies mental patterns. Hence, the energies of a mysterious Scorpio influences the mentality of a person a lot.

If Mars, the guide of Sun in Scorpio is dignified, it also strengthens the mentality and increases the courage to discover deep and frightening secrets of life. This tempers their mentality to become resistant to uncertainty and darkness.

On the contrary, a weakened or undignified Mars decreases the valor and makes these natives prone to constant stress and anxiety regarding the unknown and sudden events that may lie ahead.

Intuitive & Secretive

It also means that these natives are extremely unpredictable considering also the fact that Scorpio is a water sign which is not compatible with a fire planet causing a lot of steam and sudden bursts of energy.

The fact that Sun forms 4th diposition from its own sign increases the emotional vulnerability of individuals with this combination. That is because the 4th house is naturally represented by Moon, which rules over the emotions.

As Scorpio is a sign of hidden, it makes these natives very secretive from the mind (4th), heart, and soul (Sun). Sun is also the planet of intelligence, the placement of which in Scorpio produces a deeply intelligent mind to a person.

In addition to that, this deep mind is supported by deep intuition given by Sun.

On the other hand, this mentality makes them very suspicious and secretive at the same time. However, with such traits, they always manage to sense the hidden motives of others.

Hence, they are capable of efficient planning in disguise without others noticing.

With that being said, they execute their plans when the timing is right according to their strong intuition which increases their chances of succeeding regarding their plans.

For these traits, individuals with this combination are often perceived as dangerous and unpredictable, but in reality, it is a strong trait and does not indicate danger to good people.

Competent Leaders & Managers

Both Sun and Mars, the ruler of Scorpio are the planets of leadership and authority as per sidereal Vedic astrology.

Therefore, a dignified Sun in a friendly sign ruled by Mars creates a very fierce, aggressive, but competent leader.

Such a native is capable of leading in very harsh and unpredictable environments efficiently.

Their assertiveness provides them a lot of confidence and they are able to get their word heard in a strict manner if no other way helps.

If Mars is also strong and dignified, it ensures that they use their power righteously and ethically.

In addition to that, a strong Mars extends their leadership capabilities making them extremely tough, disciplined, and strategically efficient managers.

Spouse & Hardships

Classics also state that this combination is not auspicious regarding spouse. As Scorpio is the 8th zodiac sign, which is the 2nd from the 7th sign of spouse, it indicates troubles to the spouse.

The 8th in Vedic astrology belongs to Dusthana Bhava or house of hardships and thus creates troubles to a life partner.

If Mars, the ruler of Scorpio is well-placed, it indicates a good outcome for the spouse. Hence, the spouse experiences a lot of disturbances and sudden events in life, but which causes deep transformation and rebirth of the soul.

As a result, the spouse of the native becomes better, wiser, and stronger. In addition to that, in such combination, the spouse will have sudden incomes.

However, if Mars is ill-placed while Sun is in Scorpio, it indicates troubles regarding spouse. As a result, the spouse is not obedient to the native and malicious in nature whose actions are questionable as also stated in Saravali.

Good & Bad Deeds

Classics also mention that Scorpio Sun natives have chances to follow an immoral or bad path. This can be true if and undignified Mars leads Sun negatively.

Moreover, Scorpio is a mysterious and cruel sign, which is the negative side of Mars, and Sun in this sign gives power to this trait.

As a result, it causes the natives to take a bad path and commit immoral or sinful actions.

However, if Mars is well placed while Sun is in Scorpio, then it does not indicate immoral or sinful behavior.

In this case, it means that they are capable of achieving their goals through aggression, secretive activities, and force if necessary.


Sun in Scorpio is placed four houses away from its own sign Leo which is considered auspicious in Vedic astrology as 4th house is beneficial Kendra Bhava or supportive quadrant house.

It indicates that the peace of mind of these natives is upheld by the matters of the 4th house such as conveyances and real-estate.

Hence, a dignified Sun in this sign is capable of blessing these natives with a very convenient and comfortable life.

If a strong Mars supports this Sun, then these natives are capable of earning a great fortune through real-estate, machinery, and luxurious items.
