The Three Stages of the Scorpio Zodiac: the Scorpion, the Eagle, and the Phoenix.
Second Stage of Scorpio: The Eagle Scorpio : A "stage two" Scorpio is symbolized by the Golden Eagle and exercises power through the intellect. Golden Eagle Scorpios show signs of maturity above Scorpion Scorpios in that they possess the ability to see what others miss, discern hidden motives, and discover deeper truths beneath the surface of life. This can prove to be either beneficial or exploitative, and can be used deceptively if not guarded. While Eagle Scorpios can indeed use these skills to help invent new medicines, save a patient's life, successfully psychoanalyze the problems of others and help them find purpose, other Eagle Scorpios are nonetheless not above exploiting others to suit their own purposes or interests, because Scorpios are also known for valuing power and wealth.
Third Stage of Scorpio: The Phoenix Scorpio: A “stage three” Scorpio is symbolized by the Dove of Peace and the Phoenix, which exercises power through love, healing and transformation. The Phoenix represents a Scorpio who has been transformed, and has reached deep within him/herself to embrace the more subtle, mystical qualities of the soul, rather than ones ego, and in result soar to spiritual heights like a bird on the wing. The tendency to be judgmental and power-obsessed is gone, and rather the observational talents of Scorpio are fused with compassion rather than judgment, defeating a life of extremes and polarities and finding greater purpose through self-spiritual development.
