When does a Scorpio not act like a Scorpio? Why would an Aries be different from what you expect? If a certain sign or house in their chart is emphasized, that energy will dominate. A grouping of natal planets (called a stellium) puts so much energy in one sign that their Sun can be overwhelmed (if it’s in a different sign). Or, if the house their Sun is in contradicts that sign, they may act in a way that’s not “typical.” If you rely on the Sun sign rules that a Scorpio is always intense, or that an Aries always wants to be first, you’ll find that you’re attempting to have a relationship with a very different person.
Sun Sign Basics
Let’s get back to basics and clarify the function of the natal Sun. The reason Sun sign descriptions are so popular (and fairly accurate) is because the Sun is the most obvious expression of natal energy. It is the ego and conscious will; the part of the psyche that stands up and proclaims, “This is my purpose and how I express my conscious energy.” Ms. Scorpio’s Sun means that she expresses her purpose with all-or-nothing intensity, stubbornness and a focus on what lies underneath the surface. Her mode of being involves penetrating analysis — of herself and others. Nothing happens until she’s certain she has control. This is how she ensures her survival, which is of paramount concern for Scorpio.
