What are Scorpio Rising Personality Traits

Ever met a Scorpio Rising? They’re not as mean as they can come off. They’re really sweet when they feel comfortable opening up; it just takes some time for them to do so. They’re aware that the world isn’t always the safest place, and for that reason, they tend to have their guards up. Even when they aren’t on the defense, their notorious stern face may be an indicator that they’re in deep thought or working to keep their cool.

Scorpio’s traditional ruling planet is Mars, but unlike when Mars is in Aries (which it also rules), the planet does not easily express itself through Scorpio energy. Mars is a hot planet and enjoys the fiery energy of Aries. But Mars makes Scorpio Risings operate like a volcano. The lava is their unprocessed feelings, mistakes they still punish themselves for, and emotions they denied were there.
