Most people know their Sun sign mainly because of popular horoscopes and pop astrology. Fortunately, there is a lot more to astrology than a Sun sign and there are important distinctions to make when you begin to learn more about astrology.
The 3 ”pillars” of a natal chart are the Sun, the Moon and the Rising sign. Your Sun sign might not be the same as your Moon sign or your Rising sign.

SUN IN SCORPIO ⊙♏︎
These Scorpios are the most mysterious ones. Inscrutable they will dodge any attempts at being found out. Under the cover of whatever rising sign they might be, they have the ability to hide their depth and intensity if they wish to do so. They could be outgoing on the surface but under an apparent candid demeanor hides a powerful will. Sun in Scorpio are secretive and only a few lucky people will ever be granted entrance into their private quarters. Scorpio’s specialty is defensiveness and these guys embody this principle straight into their core. They see right through deception and hypocritical behavior so there is really no point in lying to them. Scorpio Sun are faithful friends and partners and will hold-on to the bitter end (and beyond). Their essence is composed of a mixture of willpower, control and fixity.

MOON IN SCORPIO ☽♏︎
Moon in Scorpio people have extremely acute senses and a penetrating intuition. When the sharp vision of Scorpio is combined with the impressionability and security oriented lunar principles we get people who are full of emotional and psychic sensitivity. These Scorpio can FEEL and PERCEIVE things that pretty much no one else can see. They are extremely vulnerable to the ebb and flow of power that run through all interactions. These insights into human nature renders them both cynical and emotionally complex but they are full of compassion for the brokenness of the world. Moon in Scorpio people have a visceral relationship to pain which is a curse and a blessing. They will instinctively side with the underdogs as it is in their nature to want to defend and protect the most vulnerable.
If you know your astrology, then you know that the rising sign is often linked to the physical appearance. Scorpio rising people are like the stereotype of what we might imagine a Scorpio to be. Their classic signature is a dark magnetic stare with piercing eyes that can make them look more cunning or mysterious than they really are. Scorpio rising people have a strong animal magnetism that can either be attractive or repulsive depending on their level of intensity. Like Scorpio Sun and Scorpio Moon, Scorpio rising’s specialty is defensiveness and they will go to great lengths to cover up their most tender parts. Under their cool and distant demeanor hides an underflow of turmoil and stormy waters. Scorpio rising people have a close relationship to intensity and can thrive in extreme situations. They need to constantly challenge themselves in order to feel their potency, otherwise, they can become brooding and self-destructive.
