SCORPIO ON THE DESCENDANT CALLS FOR OUTMODED PATTERNS OF BEHAVIOUR TO BE TRANSFORMED.

When Taurus rises the basic impulse is acquisition, and is even stronger than with a Taurean Sun. As their self-confidence grows, it will be reflected in the possessions with which you surround yourself. It seems you will never be psychologically whole until you can see around yourself proof of your success. Established in your own kingdom, you will often feel uneasy if you have to step outside it: once more, it is a signal of the importance of routine and security. Stubbornness and possessiveness are equally deep-rooted; you will know you are right, and find it very hard to see anyone else's point of view unless it is identical to your own.

Self-knowledge will be acquired the hard way. Relations with partners will be very intense and passionate. You make a very demanding partner, with a high emotional energy that must be "earthed" through the relationship. Sexual fulfilment will be of prime importance, and must be borne in mind when you embark on an emotional relationship. On the other hand, it is equally important that the commitment is not solely sexual; friendship between partners will make it easier to cope with problems whenever they arise. There may be considerable achievement, especially with the help of the partner.
