What can you tell me about Scorpio rising in the 2nd decan?


The Second Decan of Scorpio is also known as the Pisces Decante and the "Week of Depth." The influence of Neptune (this Decan's secondary ruling Planet) may prompt these talented natives to seek an escape courtesy of some form of addiction...drugs or gambling, for example. The heart here is very tender and needs careful handling. This is an individual who will search for a soul mate until one is found. However, he or she will need to be very careful in the choice of friends and companions, or suffer the consequences. Medicine and healing arts are perfect for those governed by this Decanate. In addition, it is crucial that they receive unconditional love and have a loyal, loving mate who will reinforce self-esteem. Although driven, those ruled by this Decante possess a moderating streak of charity and self-sacrifice. They seek job satisfaction above prestige. Arousing and mysterious, empathetic and faith-inspiring, these persons make for exceptional sweethearts and life-partners, which may be due in part to their love of (and indulgance in) sexual fantasies. The motto of the Second Decan of Scorpio is "Transmutation."

The constellation associated with this Decan is Ara the Altar. The original Latin name of this constellation was Ara Centauri or Altar of the Centaur Chiron, who was believed to the the most wise creature on Earth. Named in honor of this half-man/half-horse Ara was the altar upon which Chiron sacrificed Lupus the Wolf. According to one Greek legend, when Zeus had gathered allies for theTitan War, they made sacrifices on an Altar constructed by the Cyclopes to pledge their alliegance. In memorial, Zeus placed the Altar among the stars as the constellation Ara. The rising of its stars heralded the storms of late Autumn. Ara has also been referred to as the Altar of Dionysus, the Altar built by Noah after the Flood, the Altar built by Moses, and even the Altar that once resided in Solomon's Temple. Basically, this constellation commemorates the Altar on which sacrifices were made to the Gods in both Greek and Roman times.
