(October 24 – November 21)

Element: Water
Mode: Fixed
 
Moving on to Scorpio, the ‘We’ of Libra becomes deeper, reaching the level of a profound psychic bond with the OtherThe symbol of the sign is the Scorpion, which, like the typical Scorpio, is constantly alert, ready to use its poisonous stinger against any potential threat or attack. Its ruling planet is Pluto, which represents death and rebirth from the ashes, a process which takes place numerous times over a Scorpio’s life course. Seeing that in Greek mythology Pluto (Hades) was the God of the Underworld, it comes as no surprise that this sign is related to all things ‘beneath’.
 
Scorpios have a deep understanding of matters pertaining to death, and that explains their extremely developed survival instinct. Many times, their suspicion and fear of perishing reach the point where they may see enemies even when there are none.
People belonging to the sign of Scorpio constantly evolve through crises and have a full reservoir of inner strength. They feel the need to be in control of every situation and in absolute self-command.
 
Contrary to those born under the sign preceding theirs, Libra, Scorpio people feel safer when they trace the dark, and they are in perfect consonance with all aspects of human nature. Their insight into all facets of human behaviour renders them ideal for psychology-related professions (interestingly enough, the discovery of their modern ruler in 1930 coincided with an increase in people’s interest in psychoanalysis).
Among the chief characteristics of Scorpios and people with Scorpio prominent in their birth chart are passion and tension. Many times, they become possessive because, like Aries people, they have a strong dislike for the second place –although in their case this dislike is restricted to sexuality and their relationship with the object of their desire. Sex plays a fundamental role in Scorpios’ life; they are renowned for their sexuality. They share this reputation with Taureans, although they are considerably different in that the latter view the sexual act as a source of pleasure and a natural ‘consequence’, while the former treat it as weightier than that. To Scorpios, sex, as the means of human reproduction, is a form of victory against death.
 
Although Scorpios do not grant forgiveness easily and are often overcome with jealousy, it is safe to say that they are the most loyal and dedicated companions of the Zodiac –on condition, of course, that this tendency is supported by the rest of their birth chart as well.

Scorpio Traits

Scorpio, the eighth sign of the Zodiac is one of the signs with the most depth of personality. The Scorpio personality can be described as sharp & vindictive but under the surface there’s so much more to this fearless sign. The sign’s stubbornness comes from its Fixed Quality, while the “still waters run deep” that characterizes a Scorpio is due to the sign’s association with the Water Element. It's important to remember these facts, as the quality of each sign largely shapes its compatibility with other zodiac signs.

Scorpio Personality

Scorpios run on a full tank of inner strength. This tank is filled and refilled through every single one of the constant crises they go through. It is through these crises that the sign’s development comes from as well. Seeing as a Scorpio feels the need to control almost anything around him that he believes affects him (or has the potential to), it is possible for someone to confuse him with a Leo. Both signs also feel the need to be in control of themselves as well but among Scoprio’s characteristics is taking everything to extremes so, in this case, self-control has to be absolute.

It is also characteristic of a Scorpio to live on intense passion and horrible fights – these two are his main source of energy. Much like Aries, a Scorpio personality would rather not be at all than to be a second choice when it comes to love. Second place or second choice translates to being a failure for a person of this sign.  And this is exactly why they get so possessive. However a Scorpio personality’s desire to be first is only limited to matters of the heart (something that doesn’t apply to an Aries). Sex is also a key activity for a person of this sign. It plays a very important role throughout a Scorpio’s life and Scorpios also have a reputation as excellent lovers.

It is safe to say that Scorpios are extremely dedicated partners and would never go behind your back or flirt while in a relationship but at the same time they do not make things very easy on their partners. See, a Scorpio personality is easily overcome with jealousy and of course, given all of the above, does not forgive and forget. Never, ever.

The Scorpio Man

Your average Scorpio man is far from average, he’d have you believe. They dine out on the fact that they're born under this sign as if it’s a guarantee of their sexual prowess. Of course, there are no guarantees in this life apart from taxes and death, and fearless Scorpio ain’t afraid of either. 

How to win the heart of a Scorpio

How to win this most secretive and mysterious of hearts? Hmm. You’re probably gonna have to cast yourself in the role of super-sleuth – yet never let on that you’re mining for info on him. No cakewalk. You, however, can expect the full interrogation routine without him giving very much away at all. Your Scorpio man has a reputation for being a womaniser with only one thing on his mind – and you’ll have to ask him about that. But he doesn’t have to answer. We on the other hand have noticed that all a great many of them are looking for is undying loyalty and concrete commitment: he wants to be your be-all and end-all. It’s a big ask. Being with this sign isn’t for wimps. 

How Scorpio acts when they first fall in love

The first lightning bolt of love can make this normally fearless sign cower like Cringer before He-Man turned him into the mighty Battlecat! Why? Because Scorpio fears its own intensity of feeling, or coming on too strong! They also start wearing shades, like Scorpio, Anna Wintour, and receiving mysterious packages through the mail.
