Scorpio Rising Sign - Scorpio Ascendant
When Scorpio rises, drive, energy and dedication are still very much present and energy resources will give terrific force to the individual's mode of expression, whatever that might be.
Someone with, for example, a Leo Sun-sign and Scorpio rising will express their creativity with force and energy. Someone with a Gemini Sun might well become an investigative journalist. Scorpio, then, will provide the all-important backup, and the need to be emotionally involved with the chosen profession will be strengthened. The intensity of Scorpio will be present, while Scorpio rising may not necessarily show it. It will do a great deal to help strengthen powers of concentration.
No matter what Sun-sign this person may have, the Scorpio characteristics will perhaps tend to overlay other characteristics, rather than to work at the deepest level of the personality. This is partly due to the very nature of the sign itself. These characteristics might show in the person's eyes which would be penetrating although he or she may well fight hard not to give the appearance of "looking right through people", which they are almost bound to do.
Someone with Scorpio rising will be an even more demanding partner than those with a Scorpio Sun-sign. Passion and intensity of feeling will almost pour out, and those on the receiving end will need considerable inner strength if they are going to get as much out of the relationship as Scorpio rising hopes they will. It is important for their joint well-being that each partner plays a part in building up a good rapport. It is only in this way that the energetic, demanding, but exciting qualities of Scorpio rising will be positively expressed, recognized, and reciprocated.
When Scorpio rises possessiveness towards the partner is something which needs to be controlled, otherwise jealous scenes are likely to occur. The sooner the individual realizes that jealousy is a negative emotion the better.
