3 Stages of Scorpio: The Scorpion, The Eagle and The Phoenix

Scorpio is ruled by the planet Pluto and is the 8th sign in the zodiac. Scorpio is represented by multiple symbols, the most potent symbols that stand out are The Scorpion, The Eagle, and The Phoenix. These three symbols or totems represent the stages of transformation Scorpio undergoes during the spiritual journey. Through peace of mind, we reach spiritual enlightenment. However, to induce the calm it takes to reach higher levels of awareness, Scorpio must have command of their emotions.

The First Stage: The Scorpion

The Scorpion, the first stage of transformation, represents our baser emotions, the darker emotions that we embrace. Low vibrational impulses seduce Scorpio as they continually react without understanding, empathy, or thought. The Scorpion easily expresses jealousy and anger, the primary source of Scorpio's reactive behavior. If these traits are easily recognizable in a Scorpio, then be aware that their perception is limited by the control their emotions have on them, and they weighed down my insecurities. Another source of frustration stem from hidden motives that they are either struggling to achieve or struggling to get started with. The Scorpion represents Scorpio at it's rawest form; this is Scorpio at their most destructive and intimidating. The Scorpion isn't going around, starting trouble. Still, because it's highly protective of itself, ego and pride will retaliate with such a vengeance, it will seem as if Scorpio was the aggressor. Scorpio, at this stage, learns from personal experience and pain of loss & betrayal. Scorpio will take other's advice with a grain of salt while forging their own path with deliberation, determination, and a dab of stubbornness. This is also the stage where Scorpio is more prone to indulging in substances or activities that ease the mind, also making them susceptible to unhealthy habits in an attempt to reduce the anxiety and emotional impulses in the brain. The Scorpion eventually realizes that the best way to bring peace to mind, body, and spirit is through spiritual enlightenment, personal awareness, and growth. This newfound awareness eventually leads to the next transformational stage...The Eagle.

The Second Stage: The Eagle

The Eagle is the second stage of transformation and is considered a symbol of courage and power. The Eagle flies freely, aware of its surroundings and influence. The Scorpion has reached a state of maturity and is at a state where they rely heavily on intuition and wisdom to solve personal problems and assist the ails of others. Where The Scorpion dealt mostly with the physical aspect of life, The Eagle is concerned with perception, philosophy, and wisdom. Their keen sense of observation infused with their powerful intuition allows them to discern an individual rather quickly and positively or negatively influence them with their persona. However, The Eagle still struggles with balancing the power of insight. Does The Eagle choose to influence the self or the whole?

The Third Stage: The Phoenix

The Phoenix represents the final stage of transformation for Scorpio. As we progress through Scorpios' various stages of power, we see Scorpios struggle with balance. Will the composed Scorpio manipulate things to be as he wishes? The extreme-natured Scorpio is tempered, Reborn from the ashes, renewed, and rejuvenated as The Phoenix representing the capacity for empathetic observation without judgment, thus an expansion of compassion and disillusionment of self. The Phoenix strongly associated with rebirth, resurrection, and transformation is a symbol that represents Scorpio breaking the chains of attachment, having learned the lesson of letting go.

Life has a thing about timing that is just perfect enjoy the shitty moments it does get better because is not worse. Its all in the perspective.

I’m 41 and a typical male Scorpio I only started delving deeper into my star sign and it’s truthful meaning when I got a scorpion tattoo about 8 years ago it was also my first tattoo .I was honestly devastated with the outcome. Anyway as I was going to say I’m 41 , I’ve got 2 daughters and a grand daughter and I’m still at the eagle stage as letting go of my ex Mrs is proving to be difficult


One thing I do know , without self control we are useless , with it we can do almost anything,


To those of us in the Scorpion stage, know that it gets better. Know that you are resilient enough to make it through to the other side. Know that you will find that SOMETHING that you’re searching for. Trust the process, trust the timing. Let yourself feel your feelings and trust that you’re growing even when you can’t make sense of what’s happening right now. Sending love.


I’m 16 and I’m definitely in the starting stages ,the scorpion ,I struggle with drug addiction, anxiety ,I reflect on the past a lot but also overthink the future and I think my way of coping with all these feelings is with a relationship but although it’s satisfies me I’m starting to think I’m holding on too much and it’s a constant battle of wanting to letting go and being sucked back into the abyss,sometimes I feel empty ,suicidal,I question reality and life itself ,and other times I feel ambitious and ready to do big things .i also have anger issues and have a tendency to break things ,punch things,yell ,self harm ,and pretty much go crazy when I get mad,also something I read was that scorpios take advice with a grain of salt and are stubborn ,I can relate to this because I’ve separated myself from all my family and I don’t look up to anyone including my parents or my older family because I feel they are inna cycle of toxic ness and I need to make my own experiences,learn and create my own judgement ,not live based on what others have told me ,I’m paving my own path ,but sometimes I’m scared if I’ll ever reach where I want to go.i have a long road ahead of me and I just don’t wanna fuck up I only got one life and I don’t want to waste it..
