Were you born on October 24th? If so, then according to Western astrology, your zodiac sign is Scorpio, the sign of the Scorpion. This means that when you were born, the Sun was in the stars that make up the constellation known as Scorpio. Let's delve into the basics of your horoscope and explore the traits and characteristics associated with your sign.

Scorpio Overview

Scorpio, known as वृश्चिक (vrishchika) in Sanskrit, is symbolized by the Scorpion. Scorpio natives are intense and secretive, and they may react harshly if provoked. Ruled by Mars, the planet of war, explosions, sudden events, and land, Scorpios are hard-working and self-confident. As a water sign, those with a Scorpio moon are perceptive, artistic, and sentimental. Scorpio is a fixed sign, making its natives steady, predictable, and slow to change. Additionally, being a feminine sign makes Scorpios receptive, sensitive, and empathetic. Scorpio's preferred gemstone is red coral, although pink and white coral can also benefit Scorpios.

Traits of the Sun in Scorpio

In Western Astrology, a person's sign is determined by the position of the Sun. If you were born on October 24th, then you're considered a Scorpio according to most people in the Western world. The influence of the Sun in a birth chart can vary depending on various factors, but the following general traits are likely to be found in a native whose Sun is in Scorpio:

  • Impulsiveness: You approach life with intensity and prefer not to waste time when making decisions. Your impulsive nature may impress some people, but it can also lead to unexpected consequences.
  • Courage: Natives with the Sun in Scorpio possess fearlessness and self-reliance. You know how to handle difficult situations and may even take on leadership roles.
  • Intelligence: You have a burning passion for learning and expanding your knowledge in various subjects. Your thirst for knowledge makes you an avid reader and consumer of content.
  • Emotional Disconnect: Because of your intensity, you may struggle to find meaning and fulfillment in the ordinary activities of everyday life. Meditation can help you become more mindful and appreciative of your surroundings.
  • Success Later in Life: You may find that personal and professional success comes later in life. Although you may feel a lack of inspiration and drive during the early years, you will witness visible improvements as you enter your 30s.

Scorpio Careers

Scorpios excel in tactical and precise roles. They are adept at managing money and can succeed in various professions. However, the urge to travel frequently may make long-term employment challenging. Recommended careers for Scorpios include surgeons, business professionals, naval or military officers, scientists, chemists, lawyers, political advisors, and administrators. On the other hand, careers that rely heavily on charisma or charm, like television, sales, or diplomacy, may not be the best fit for a Scorpio.

Scorpio Mantras

Mantras are short phrases that uplift and cleanse our mind, heart, and consciousness. By practicing mantra meditation, we can experience relief from suffering and negativity. Scorpios can benefit from meditating with the following mantra:

ॐ नरसिंहदेवाय​ नमः Om narasimha-devaya namaha

The Vedas offer many mantras customized for individuals based on their unique circumstances. However, some mantras are universal and beneficial for people born in any zodiac sign. One such maha-mantra, or "super mantra," is:

हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे हरे राम हरे राम राम राम हरे हरे Hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare Hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare
