If your child is born on, or close to these dates, a Birth Chart can accurately decipher their true Sun Sign. The time and location are also valuable details.

Along with the potency and heightened inclination of the Scorpion, the Symbology of your Scorpio Sun Child ties in closely with the Serpent and the Eagle.
Here’s the thing. The Eagle can be tenacious and fearless, has unblinking eyes that see what others miss, is a stalwart mate and devoted nurturer. Majestic. The Serpent sheds its skin for renewal & regeneration, and has venom that can both poison and heal. Powerful. All three Symbols tied into the burnished essence of Scorpio glean an intoxicating formula of nuanced perception, tenacity, transformation and healing.
I’m sure, as your Scorpio Sun Child grows, you’ll be intrigued to see if their nature aligns with their Symbology. Suggestion: Never count a Scorpio out!
Scorpio Sun Child Element: Water
Interestingly, Fire, Earth, Air and Water are known as the four elements in astrology. Each element belongs to three of the twelve zodiac signs.
The four elements relate to different aspects of the self and Water relates to instinctual feeling. Its nature is responsive through emotion and inclination, and is the element for Scorpio. Scorpio shares the element of Water with Pisces and Cancer. The three signs possess
individual qualities based around their element, and when grouped together have a common thread of compatibility within the zodiac.
Your intuitive little water babies are attuned to closeness, sentiment and intrinsic sensitivity. They’re the cherubs mixing their expansive emotional range, happy tears and tanties into the playtime pot. True to the element of Water, and akin to the Sun’s rays, they soak up the vitality of a bath or shower like food for the soul.
At play, they’re usually the mainstays at the water park, with your Scorpio Sun Bub demonstrating an all or nothing approach on the slip n slide! Don’t be surprised to find the natural magnetism and allure of your little Scorpio drawing their watery friends into secret confessionals. Intriguingly, their calm focus has a talent for poignant inquiry, and their self possession has a knack for not giving too many of their own secrets away!
Have you noticed the element of Water streaming through your Scorpio Sun Child?
Scorpio Sun Child Ruling Planet: Pluto
Over time, each sign has been allocated a Ruling Planet. From an astrological perspective, the zodiac signs and planets in the Solar System were matched up, largely based on their thematic relationship to one another.
As you tune into the powerful energy of Pluto working its magic through your Scorpio Sun Child, consider that its aim is to make a profound difference, and to promote growth through the richness and depth of life experience. With a flavour of taking its investments as far as it can,
Pluto wants to rebirth, regenerate and transform.
As you foster your Scorpio Sun Childs radiance, factor in the powerful conglomeration of Water, The Scorpion and Pluto.
Combined with the Scorpion’s sensitivity to undercurrents, and the fluidity of Water and emotion, Pluto deep dives into the subconscious, into what’s hidden under the surface of life and pulls it up to the surface. Pluto aims to eliminate fear, suspicion and secrets so that it can vibrate on a level of trust, renewal, liberation and empowerment. It represents beginnings, endings, and rising in the face of adversity. Supernatural can play a part too.
Does your Scorpio Sun Child have a penetrating stare, through eyes that are deep and still? Do they take emotion and feeling to the edge, retreat, then materialise transformed? Are they drawn to the cupboard under the stairs? Curious to see behind the closed door? Do they like to change things for the better? If so, they’e living true to the main objective of their Sun Sign, as they take ownership of their Ruling Planet Pluto.

How To Spark Joy In Your Scorpio Child
Enjoy taking in these Hot tips for the healthy expression of their life force.
- See them light up as you plot and plan a treasure hunt. Compile a stack of clues for your pocket sleuth but don’t make them too easy. Creepy Crawlies aren’t welcome, so craft up some caution signs to divert from long grass and big rocks beckoning to be upturned. Find somewhere to bury loot and watch your incy Scorpion get a glow up as they dig deeper than a Dachshund. If the hunt extends to inside, be clear as to what’s off limits, or they could surface with more than you both bargained for! Speaking of hunting, they can be very sentimental, with an appetite for family secrets!
- Bask in their brightest light with a double pass to a Cosentino Show or a visit to a Magic Shop. Something about the transformative mystique of your Scorpio Sun Child tells me they’ll be fascinated by the ins and outs of the power of illusion. They’ll be chuffed to gain inside info on what goes on behind the curtain, and find ultimate delight in keeping you guessing with their covert trickery! If the spotlight doesn’t appeal, your Scorpio Sun Child will happily volunteer to pull strings behind the scenes.
- Enlighten their innate need to feel in control of life with loads of room for empowered choice. It’s Be mindful that unless it’s a jump scare, random surprises aren’t usually their thing! Try inviting your Scorpio Sun Child into daily planning for reciprocated flow. Their inclusion and input may even brighten YOUR day with things you wouldn’t ordinarily do. Watch out for the switch up, as your Scorpio Sun Child can be crafty. One minute you’ll be tending to life admin, next minute you’ll be in the hypnotic hold of their husky little voices reading a mystery novel!
- Channel their Water with a ferry ride to the seaside. Being around water is a fantastic mood regulator for your Scorpio Sun Child. Watch as the salty freshness hits their face and therapeutically washes away any evidence of the grumps! The natural force of the deep dark ocean is apparent to this water baby, so a splash on the edge will satisfy until they know what they’re working with. For your Scorpio Sun Child, goggles will offer visibility into the unknown, and with or without flippers, they’ll be swimming in no time.
- See them shine as they give their all to passions, competition, and anything they choose to sink their teeth into. The word “hobby” won’t get a look in with the level of commitment your Scorpio Sun Child brings. They’ll radiate 110% at the helm of anything requiring a steady mind, hand and nerve. Being in control of creation from the outset, with a say in every ingredient and formula will see them shinier than shiny too!
Fill their happiness cup with Cluedo, Guess Who? and Hide & Seek in the dark! Don’t forget a notebook with an invisible ink pen for your budding Detective. A microscope for your Forensic Scientist. Operation board game for your Smallfry Surgeon. (Batteries must be included) If this isn’t their thing, you may discover their natural joy in numbers. With trust at the top of their list and numbers a sure thing, counting and calculating, will see their cup runneth over! Be the instigator of luminous laughter with anything that’s a little edgy or off limits. True to their sign, it’s sometimes a mystery as to what tickles their funny bone, but they are clever and switched on, so if it’s peppered with a pinch of sarcasm you could be on the right track! Your Scorpio Sun Child will love the emotional release a good laugh brings. There’s usually a noticeable pause before they burst into lols, then it’s the kind of giggle that says “when you know, you know”, and it will be hard not to join in!
Ignite your Scorpio Sun Child’s instinctive wisdom and transformative power with anything that needs training, taming or changing. Their emotional depth, insight and staying power is the perfect recipe for helping humans, animals, or anything they’re passionate about, reaching its true potential. Unfortunately the appeal of taming their bedroom or playroom might take a back seat unless you have them believe it was their idea!
Your Sun Sign, also known as your Star Sign, represents your core personality, and how you shine through life. It’s where you are at your most luminous. From an earthbound perspective, the Sun takes one year to complete a circuit of the Zodiac, and spends approximately four weeks in each of the twelve signs.
Scorpio Sun Child Mum Inspiration
A few extra tricks up your sleeve as you look to the Sun for a Super Mum boost!
Challenge your Scorpio Sun Child to fearlessly share inner burdens with you. Emotionally, they hold cards close to their chest, and you may find, for them, demonstrating vulnerability equates to giving over the personal power that provides them security. Respect this, but know they are at their best through close bonds, and even if you don’t swim in the same waters, offer yourself up as an emotionally alive confidante entrusted to their deepest feelings. Open a safe space for a heartfelt offload, drop by drop. With a little bit of “mumlight” breaking through the darkness, they’ll arise with the vibe of having touched the warmth of the sun for the very first time.
Support your Scorpio Sun Childs instinctual intelligence and suspicious nature. Your Sixth Sense Babies can be cautious of strangers or anything mysterious until trust is established. Adjusting to new people and experiences may take time, as they aren’t particularly fond of anything random that could threaten or unsettle their security and control. Heads up, they have insincerity and manipulation on their radar. They’re savvy with face and voice reading too, so support them with sensitivity, confidence and reassurance.
Encourage your Scorpio Sun Childs instinct for knowing what they want and going for it, then buckle up as your young deep diver pushes things as far as they can. They’ll work their magic with self empowered tunnel vision, surfacing with a bucket load of incredible results. Here’s the tip. Do your best Mumming and keep an eye on things, as although incredible results don’t come without commitment, a heavy going, highly concentrated effort can sometimes obscure knowing when to stop! Moderation might just be the key word in this instance, so good luck!
Guide your Scorpio Sun Child through “childhood” with a splash of protection and a sprinkle of honesty. Your Minute’ Miner of the zodiac can pick up on the light and dark of grown up issues before they need to. Taboo subjects will definitely pique the interest of your Curious Cuties as they leave no stone unturned in attempting to uncover anything subterranean. Don’t be shocked if they know more than expected. They just can’t help it! In the meantime, do your utmost as their time will come!
Approach without fuss, a good amount of warning, and a little bit of your own trickery. Warning: They’re clued into blackmail and manipulation and your Scorpio Sun Child won’t like to be rushed or forced into anything that doesn’t align with their own power, control and choice. The
enduring nature of this sign means they can be set in their ways too. Good for staying power, not so good when you’re in a hurry! Helping others gets them moving if it hits an emotional nerve.
Stimulate their authentic joy by surrounding them with kindred spirits who are loving, trustworthy and honest. Your Scorpio Sun Child will soar in company where meaningful, shared experiences allow them to feel safe in authentic vulnerability and potency. Side note: You might not read this in a book, but my close observations tell me this sign is renowned for losing their keys/toy, rallying the help of others through body language, then miraculously finding them. See who’s left in a pool of sweat and who’ll be moving on with a seamless transition! That’s deep sharing at its best!
Tackle their profound sensitivity with love, care, and heed. When your Scorpio Sun Child feels hurt or betrayed, their vibe can reach fever pitch on the storm brewing scale. Nastiness isn’t at the top of their motivational compass, but their emotional memory is next level. If anything of sentimental value gets lost or broken, your compact undercover operative may be compelled to stealthily take things into their own hands. It’s important to note that for Scorpios, optimum learning comes from those they see as stronger, so get your best Mum diversion tactics on, and steer them in the direction of positive intention, forgiveness and inner peace!
Inspire your Scorpio Sun Child to be creative with their natural talent and innate understanding of metamorphosis and regeneration. If an ending occurs, inspire them to shake off fear through the gift of new beginnings. Being spurred on by this, with their undivided focus and emotional fortitude, will see them move mountains personally, and for others. So along with embracing the new, positive intention, and a do or die mantra, the world is their oyster!
