A friend of mine has her Earth on this degree. It seems to manifest in a strong attraction to action-oriented community services such as the State Emergency Services, the military, the Rural Fire Services etc. As this is her Earth, her Sun is the opposite degree in Taurus 10-11 A Woman Sprinkling Flowers. She has grown up in an old family in town with a strong matriarch who seems to be very Victorian era-ish, and for my friend this has given her a very suffocating knowledge of formality, gentility and strong gender roles. Her Earth in Scorpio seems to give her an escape from this upbringing, and she is excited to be in the State Emergency Services and getting her adrenaline and testosterone highs!

Another layer to this is that her upbringing has also been emotionally suffocating, with many things unsaid in the larger extended family resulting in dramas with her aunts, cousins and grandma. Her own mother refuses to take part in them but is nonetheless affected. Often her mother feels she is drowning in emotion, and this mother's only child (my friend) seems to be her only lifeline. The bond between them is so strong (as is most mother-daughter relationships, for good or bad!) that as my friend realises more of herself and evolves into who she wants to be, her mother is also shifting too.

Does any part of the symbol resonate with you?

i have mars on this degree
by: Space Traveller

I have mars on this degree. most people dont sense it at first contact with me. However, under emergencies, I become extremely focussed, single minded to reach my goal, move quickly around all obstables, stay quiet, but when I talk, my voice become really loud and husky.

Neptune 10'12 Scorpio with Mercury, Moon and Mars within 4.5 degrees
by: Anonymous

I wasn't given swim lessons as a child as my 4 siblings, but moved to the coast at age 11 and learned to swim in the ocean without being able to swim classically.
I had many many instances where my friends and I ventured out too far, and the waves prevented us from returning to shore, and we were in fear for our lives. I prayed to God to save me and my friends many a time, and fortunately survived my teen years bodysurfing the Santa Cruz coastline daily. We placed a great weight on never turning our backs to the ocean, never leaving the beach after almost drowning without entering the water again, to prove that it didn't beat us, and shouldering responsibility for others in danger.
I remember spending one camping trip on the beach with my 3 best friends where after drinking and smoking, they wanted to go swimming. I spent the next half hour pushing them down in the sand so they could not remove their clothes to go in the water. They were pissed off at me, but I didn't want to have to risk my life to save theirs, and the best way to keep everyone alive was to prevent this really bad idea from coming to completion.
When I went to college, the first thing I did was take swim classes and learned to swim beautifully and it has been one of the greatest pleasures of my life.
