Scorpio-Sagittarius: similarities and differences
by Richard Pellard
English translation by Julien Rouger

The interpretation examples that we are suggesting are very far from being exhaustive: they only show and outline a general frame describing the problematics of both Signs. They should therefore not be taken literally. Each being brings indeed its own responses, more or less original, to the issues raised by a Sign. Through combining logic, observation and imagination, you will be able to develop a thousand other possible meanings, a thousand other variations on the same theme.

It’s possible that your Sun Sign is not dominant in your birth chart. One can for instance be born under the Aries Sign while the most valorized Sign is actually Taurus. In this case, it will probably be difficult for you to recognize yourself in the interpretations that are offered to you below. You will have to refer to the interpretations corresponding to your actual dominant Sign in order to relate to these. For further information, please feel free to visit our website and get a free mini-interpretation of your birth chart with our software Astrosoft.


Adapted Scorpio and Sagittarius


S−S+

Difference Scorpio-Sagittarius: Inhibition strength versus Excitation strength

S−Differentiating Inhibition strength for Scorpio: the opponent. One perceives first and foremost what distinguishes, differentiates or separates beings, objects, feelings or ideas: one dissects, one discriminates, one split hairs, one refuses too easy associations or similarities. One systematically emphasizes what contrasts and separates: nitpicking, adding fuel to the fire, widening the gaps, standing out at every opportunity, triggering splits, hitting a nerve, accentuating contrasts.

S+Associating Excitation strength for Sagittarius: the missioner. The associating Excitation strength reaches its climax: one establishes connections, associations or correlations between fields that seem the farthest apart, the most heterogeneous. Sensitivity to general interactions. Wide-ranging cooperations, universal understanding. Disappearance of the individual in his social or natural environment: one just becomes a link of a vast chain. Open, active and generous sociability; readiness to get out of one’s way so that the universal should prevail over the particular.


Difference Scorpio-Sagittarius: Negative induction versus No induction

NINegative induction for Scorpio: the insightful. The associating Excitation focuses onto a narrow field: sectarian alliances, clannishness, mafia, close ties, demanding oaths, exclusive and closed unions, exacting interlockings. Focus on the most minute details, on the flaws of a contract; intense perception of time: critical juncture, historical moment.


Q−

Similarity Scorpio-Sagittarius: Inhibition quickness

Q−Inhibition quickness for Scorpio: the crafty. The Scorpio is an inhibited person with ultra-fast defence systems: he’s a motocross topnotcher. Clever, subtle, crafty, skillful, he slips through nets, zigzags betweens obstacles. His mind quickly grasps how beings and things function behind the scenes. He brilliantly knows how to use evasive promises and detailed threats, always ready to dodge as and when necessary, standing firm about the content while being very flexible in form.

Q−Inhibition quickness for Sagittarius: the sophisticated. A consummate art of sidestepping, well-knit avoidance tactics, sophisticated people skills: one handles with ease, skill and style the pawns of socioculture, one can opportunely mediate and withdraw, one can advocate a total opening while allowing some selection mechanisms; one can expand indefinitely the field of possible cooperations on an abstract level — but not with just anyone on a practical level, hence an enlightened elitism.


SPSS

Difference Scorpio-Sagittarius: Sense of proportions versus Sense of syntheses

SPSense of proportions for Scorpio: the double-crosser. The Sense of opposites gives way to the Sense of syntheses: one must strike a subtle balance between the taste for sharp contrasts and the unity of behaviours. The concentrated associativity requires to unite two opposites into one perspective, while the differentiating Inhibition maintains antagonisms. It’s the world of double-crossing: one deals with one’s adversary so as to better fight him and to bring him onto one’s ground; one makes a deal with the devil so that good should prevail. One stands on pivots, on dividing lines, conducive to underhand double deals. One partners closely with one’s rival in order to better tie him up.

SSSense of syntheses for Sagittarius: the unifier. One is in search of an endlessly open macro-synthesis, with all its elements interdependently and flexibly connected to each other. Everything holds together, from microcosm to macrocosm, from top to down, from left to right, from the Earth to the Sky: universalism, cosmopolitanism, encyclopaedism. It’s not even “it takes all sorts to make a world”, it’s “the world is made of a whole”. One is determined to stick to the big picture that absolutely rises above the usual dualities, rivalries, splits, distinctions and antagonisms. Liking for mixings, miscegenations and hybridizations; need to unite the whole personality into a harmonious and dynamic synthesis.

w+w−

Difference Scorpio-Sagittarius: Excitation weakness versus Inhibition weakness

w+Unblocking Excitation weakness for Scorpio: the prisoner. Locked up in the cell of one’s singularity, one is not able anymore to step outside oneself, outside one’s boundaries, to break free, to surpass oneself. One stagnates in the doldrums, one wades through the quagmire, ones sinks into the swamp. Decay, ghetto, oppressive environment, life sentence, prisoner of fate. In order to be oneself nevertheless, one sticks to one’s miasmas, one’s failures, one’s turpitude; one becomes even more negative by walking round and round in the prison of one’s singularity.

w−Blocking Inhibition weakness for Sagittarius: the foolhardy. The blocking Inhibition weakness is at a peak: radical rebelliousness, lack of foresight, impatience, presumption, rashness. Being ready to all excesses, all immoderations; taking the most absurd or the riskiest bets. Trying to reach the unreachable star, running away towards the absolute, the infinity, the unlimited. The instinct of self-preservation is reduced to zero. One doesn’t accept any restriction, any normative framework, ceaselessly escaping from a fake prison so as to go towards an illusory freedom.


sl+

Similarity Scorpio-Sagittarius: Unadapted Excitation slowness

sl+Unadapted Excitation slowness for Scorpio: the vampire. Persistence of haunting images, need to organize and control in a closed environment: one feels vested with magical, unique, secret powers; one draws power from one’s immutable fixedness, from one’s intolerant subjectivity, from one’s systematic oppositions — futile just as well as haughty. One pulls the strings from behind the scenes while living as a parasite, at the expense of others’ sorrow, shamelessly, with a cynical domineering mindset.

sl+Unadapted Excitation slowness for Sagittarius: the megalomaniac. The need to organize and master applies to anything gigantic, immense, extraordinary, colossal. Imagination is carried away into mythomania, the delusion of being controlled, the search for greatness or for mythical heroism. Unquenchable quest for an insane power. Energizing identification to exceptional beings, or empty solemnity that impresses in order to hide the void of a spineless personality; vain hallucinated ambitions against a backdrop of ineffectualness to set oneself a realistic action framework.


PPUP

Difference Scorpio-Sagittarius: Paradoxical phase versus Ultraparadoxical phase

PPParadoxical phase for Scorpio: the schemer. Losing the sense of intensities, the Scorpio reacts strongly to weak signals. His discriminating mind will therefore take above all else an interest into what’s mysterious, hidden, secret — no matter whether true or fake. Frenzied curiosity for what’s marginal or underlying; chase for an insane dominion over others by giving the impression that one knows a great deal about what others ignore: hints, veiled threats, blackmail, insidious propaganda. Over-negativism: dramatizing, painting a bleak picture, systematic pessimism, ill-boding, etc. Over-scheming: one wants to win on all fronts by excessively manipulating what’s known and unknown to the others.

UPUltraparadoxical phase for Sagittarius: the tower of Babel. One wants to integrate and make cooperate the most irreducibly antagonist sides, the most radically alien viewpoints. Great mishmash, ridonkulous associations. What’s normally inhibiting becomes stimulating: attraction for danger, Russian roulette, silly gambles, exhausting one’s supplies with relish. Social hyper-conditioning while aiming at originality: the parlor revolutionary, the self-righteous nonconformist, actions that are inconsistent with the displayed ethics. Excessively playing down one’s enemies: ending up playing their game by dint of telling oneself that one can set the cats among the pigeons provided that everyone cooperates with civility.
