Scorpio is the deepest and most intense of any of the signs. Never concerned with the superficial. Often this gives them great power.
They can see into people with their immense intuition. Very passionate in everything they do. Often thought of as the sexual sign.
Scorpio carries this intensity into everything they do. Scorpio can inspire fear or awe in others because of their often overwhelming
ability to strip away all veneer to get to the bottom line. Not afraid of endings or new beginnings. A loyal friend but a fanatic foe.
They invented the word "revenge."
Intense, dominating, and energetic -- your hypnotic stare and your vital force overwhelm those around you. You are passionate and committed to your friends and ruthless with your enemies. Upon the battlefield of life, you are the one who leads, storming the gates of the fortress. Scorpios have a keen intellect and admirable qualities of patience and creativity. You are definitely not the gregarious, social kind, always ready to please people. You are genuine and most of the times, above petty gains. However, you are certainly not above conspiracy and manipulation.
Like the scorpion with the sting in its tail, people had better watch out before they rub you the wrong way. Quite a few of you will devote considerable time and energies to develop strategies and plot revenge against your enemies. You are a determined lot. Set to achieve, there are very few challenges that you will not meet. Actually, all activity must hold a sense of purpose for you. You have an inner strength and a great capacity to endure hardships. There is in fact a streak of masochism in you that enables you to destroy something you have nurtured with great care and love. You can easily change course if it suits you better. Nevertheless, you are dynamic, fascinating and often mysterious - a combination that draws many towards you.
WHAT BRINGS YOU LUCK
Black, blood red, burgundy, wine, and maroon are good colours for the scorpion. Bloodstone is your lucky stone, whereas nine and other numbers that add up to it are lucky numbers. Tuesday and Thursday are good days. Mars and Pluto rule you and your element is water. PROFESSIONAL AND MONETARY WELL-BEING You are ideally suited for the sciences and will do extremely well as physicians and surgeons. Architecture and mechanics are also some areas where you will excel.
Whether in industry or the military, you will make excellent commanders. Some of you will be interested in fine arts, literature, and journalism -- fields in which you will do quite well. You need not travel long distances to seek fortune and success. In fact, travelling sometimes has quite the opposite effect on you. You will have a good head for business and will be able to plan your investments shrewdly. You normally look towards making big money, but must have patience, lest you adopt less than honourable means to reach your goals.
Romance and Family
You are among the best lovers, instinctively knowing what your partner wants. You are intense and passionate and none of your lovers will ever forget you. You will sweep many off with your magnetic charm. You will rarely distinguish between a passing fancy and true love. For you, it will always be a passionate involvement. Scorpios can also be very jealous and will go to any lengths to claim what they feel is rightly theirs.
You will find your ideal life partner in fellow water signs - Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. It is the water signs that understand you best. You may have disagreements with your family, as you feel they cannot understand you or the intensity of your passion. Though you are a good parent, you can turn wrathful without warning. This often makes your relationship with your children rather uneasy. The Scorpio house will be comfortable and classy, but not overtly flamboyant as you do have an eye for detail and will prefer the minimalist style.
Health and Fitness
Scorpios are perhaps the most mysterious and difficult to understand of all the signs of the zodiac. They often seem to have a love-hate relationship with food. Some of you could be overweight while others among you could be anorexic. The Scorpio tendency to brood and keep worries and troubles inside could result in digestive problems. As a cure, some of you will over eat, while others won't eat at all. Many Scorpios also suffer from insomnia and sleep-related disorders.
Try not to brood over the day's problems. Swimming is a good form of exercise as well as relaxation for you. You have an attractive, tidy appearance and a fine skin texture. You tend to put on weight, as you grow older. You are prone to catching infections faster than most others and often suffer from fevers. The throat, pelvis, groin and bladder are particularly vulnerable in the case of Scorpio's. Take extra precaution against contagious diseases.
Scorpios will concentrate on the essential questions, gleaning the secrets that lie within. Scorpios concern themselves with beginnings and endings, and are unafraid of either; they also travel in a world of black and white with little use for grey. Their curiosity is immeasurable, making them adept investigators. These people love to probe and know how to get to the bottom of things. The fact that they have a keen sense of intuition certainly helps.It is the Scorpion who fittingly symbolises Scorpio. Just as the stinging little Scorpion would rather kill itself than be killed, those born under this Sign are in ultimate control of their destiny. Life is always lived on a Scorpio's own terms, too.
They promote their agenda (they are quite the executives) and see to it that things go forward. Others may find this overbearing (it can be) and even self-destructive, but that's the beauty of Scorpio. They have tremendous regenerative powers, just like their symbol, which can lose its tail and promptly grow a new one.Fearless Scorpions rarely lose - they just keep on going, stubborn and determined to succeed (this Scorpio trait is in keeping with the Fixed Quality assigned to this Sign). Scorpios work as hard as they do so they can eventually sit back with a sense of self-satisfaction. They are intense, passionate and filled with desire. They're also complex and secretive, so don't expect to get much out of them, as they may become suspicious and withdraw further. It's best not to bet against Scorpios, either, since these sexy secret-keepers are surprisingly resourceful.
Scorpio is ruled by the Planets Mars and Pluto. Mars was the God of War in ancient Roman mythology and is the first, and oldest, ruler of Scorpio. When the Planet Pluto was discovered in the 20th century, it was also assigned to this Sign. Pluto was known as the God of the Underworld in ancient Rome, so, when coupled with Mars, expect some intense energy to head toward Scorpions here on Earth.
This planetary combination makes for motivated, penetrating and aware individuals. Scorpions don't miss much, since they are highly attuned to the vibrations of others. They are intuitive, probing and very focused on knowing who's who and what's what. Scorpions can lose their temper (and even become vengeful) when someone gets in their way, so it's best to give them plenty of room. Remember, they're unafraid, and a loss today simply means an opportunity for victory tomorrow.
The Element associated with Scorpio is Water. As opposed to the `roiling seas´ seen in other Water Signs, a better motto for Scorpions would be `still waters run deep´. Those born under this Sign are as emotional as their water-borne brethren, it's just that they are less likely to show it. The Scorpio's emotions are repressed, kept under cover. Those are just secrets to be used another day. That said, be aware that these people are clever, perceptive and always in the mix. Their ability to see into things can sometimes be a curse for Scorpions, however, since they can take an insignificant matter and turn it into a huge slight. Beware the Scorpion who feels crossed - they can quickly become vindictive.
Luckily, once Scorpions catch their breath, they will return to their usual determined and loyal (albeit strong-willed) ways. Finally, while Scorpions aren't above some subtle manipulation to get what they want, they'd much rather take a scientific path. The Scorpio-born are powerful and passionate, qualities which serve them well, as long as they don't let them deteriorate into self-indulgence or compulsion.
Scorpios love competition in both work and play, which is why they enjoy sports and games. Extreme sports are right up the Scorpion's alley, as is almost anything which will test their mettle. They've got to have an adversary, since it makes the game that much more fun. The Scorpion's colours? Powerful red and serious black. When it comes to love, though, Scorpions soften up a bit and are caring and devoted with their lovers, even if they do hold on a bit tight.
The great strength of the Scorpio-born is in their determination, passion and motivation. Scorpions don't believe in the word failure, which is why they usually get the job done. A powerhouse? Like no other.
