Scorpio

Your Most Likable Trait: IDEALISM

The Sun resides in this eighth sign of the zodiac from 23 October until 22 November each year. The symbol for Scorpio is the Scorpion. Like the other water signs, this sign is very sensitive and emotional. With Scorpio, unlike the water signs Cancer and Pisces, the emotions remain under rigid control. They may not even be apparent to those who are very close to you. When your emotions do erupt, they do so very violently, often with a strong burst of sarcasm and vindictiveness. The strength of Scorpio is in the methods employed to meet every challenge. You approach everything with intensity and passion. Nothing is ever halfway because you put everything you have in your work; mind, heart, soul. You are one of those people who always gives 100% and sometimes more. Many born under the sign Scorpio become classic workaholics.

You may have an undesirable trait commonly found in the Scorpio person, holding a grudge for a very long time. The underside of Scorpio is often possessed with uncontrollable jealousies and the strongest passions. When offended the reaction is surely revenge. The higher side of Scorpio still dominates people and situations, but with much for the common good. This sign produces very few lukewarm people. You are either very bad or very good.

In Scorpio, the Sun is intense, skeptical and secretive. There is an intensity and a secretiveness in your makeup which results in an inscrutable persona most people cannot penetrate. This trait makes the Scorpio personality hard to detect. You like to remain incognito, and do so with your very secretive nature. You are a master at hiding your emotions. You neither flinch nor blush. It’s hard for you to share your inner feelings with anyone.

You can be very critical and demanding, creating a forceful and dominating demeanor. You are strong-willed and determined, and you usually act with incisiveness. Your critical nature allows you to make shrewd and unusually accurate judgments at a rapid rate. You can penetrate the hidden agenda of those you meet. It is in your nature to protect yourself by knowing what your opponents are thinking and doing. You have uncanny intuition and accurate perceptions, making you almost psychic in understanding and making emotional connections with other people. Very few successfully earn your trust. Often, you experience difficulties with the authority figures in your life.

At home, you may be something of a tyrant, wanting everything done your way. You think you are always right and won’t tolerate dissent. There is a tendency for you to impose your will on friends and family since you feel so passionately that your ideas are in their best interest. No one takes relationships more serious than you. Although you are highly attracted to, and attractive to, the opposite sex, in many respects you function well as a ‘lone wolf’ type.

THE INNER YOU

You have great inner strength, determination, and willpower. But no matter how calm and cool you appear on the outside, you’ve got a well of seething emotions underneath. For the most part, though, you keep your intensity under control by channeling it into useful activities. You’re a high achiever, and you seem to “get things in a flash- with powerful psychic feelings you’ve learned to trust. Your instinct tell you that you’re destined to do something important and you’re not going to let yourself fail along the way. When you latch onto a new opportunity, you explore it in great depth before you go ahead. Deep inside you have a gladiator spirit, and if you channel this fighting energy into positive goals (your continuing lesson), you will always be one of life’s great winners. At times, however, you feel you are a lone warrior in a harsh world. You’re a complex person who can’t always express how you feel, but one thing is for sure: The things you want, you want badly.

HOW OTHERS SEE YOU

It is probably your secretiveness that makes people so interested in finding out what you think. You are often the guru of the group, the one with uncanny hunches about the future and piercing insight into other people’s motivations. Many believe that even your humor contains a barb of truth. People are aware of your reputation for sensuality and fantasize about you as a lover. You’re frequently viewed as over-controlling- even power hungry- but also as someone who can be trusted, because you never make false promises.

SCORPIO DECANS

Each Star Sign of the Zodiac can be divided into three subsections called Decans. Each Decan roughly corresponds to 10 degrees or 10 days of the Star Signs time period. Decans can provide a more detailed account of an individual’s personality traits and character and reveal how people born under the same Star Sign can be very different. The Scorpio personality can differ according to which one of the Scorpio Decans an individual is born under:

If you were born between October 24 and November 2

This is the first of the Scorpio Decans and is ruled by the planet Pluto. The first Decan Scorpio personality is characterised by outer coolness, inner passion and ambition. You are driven and ambitious and love the idea of competition and challenge. You work tirelessly to fulfil your ambitions and are driven by the thought of success – both emotional and financial. You need to feel completely satisfied in all aspects of your life and will not accept second place. You appear to others as cool, collected and at times calculating. You have the ability to manipulate situations and people to your own advantage in an apparently rational and cool headed way. However under your cool exterior there is fire and passion underneath and this is your powerful driving force to get what you really want from life. As with all Scorpions sex and sensuality are very important to you and you seek high levels of satisfaction with sex.

If you were born between November 3 and November 13

The second of the Scorpio Decans has the planet Neptune as its ruler. The second Decan Scorpio personality is characterised by seductiveness, shyness and artistic talent. You can be quite shy and don’t like to expose too much of yourself even to close friends and family. You prefer to work quietly in the background and shy away from the limelight. You also don’t mind being alone and pretty much enjoy your own company where you can fantasise and dream your imaginative dreams. You are a generous and attentive lover and use your powers of seduction to get what you want. You are very intriguing, mysterious and seductive to others. They can easily become beguiled by you. You have a great deal of artistic talent and can become a successful artist, writer or musician. However your shyness might hold you back in seeking celebrity fame and fortune. You can experience great highs and lows and will be adversely affected by mood swings. The mood swings can be very intense and often frightening to those around you. They think they have figured you out but are shocked or surprised by another side of you that they don’t know.

If you were born between November 14 and November 22

The third of the Scorpio Decans is ruled by the Moon. The third Decan Scorpio personality is characterised by great will power, a caring nature and sensitivity. You have tremendous will power and will resist temptations that can lead you astray. Once you have decided on a cause or project you will be driven to do your utmost to make it successful. This includes relationships where you will relentlessly pursue happiness even if it means self sacrifice. You love to nurture those close to you and even if you are not a mother will act as if you were. You care deeply for those you love and derive great pleasure and satisfaction from looking after their interests. You in turn, need to be nurtured and ‘mothered’ too but will seldom allow anyone to do this for you. As a Scorpion from the element of water you feel things deeply. You are more sensitive than you’d like to admit and can hurt very easily. Unkind words or thoughtless acts trouble you deeply and wound your soul. You would never show how hurt you feel and prefer to hide away to lick your own wounds privately.

Scorpio is sensual, passionate, demanding, jealous, inflexible. Gemini is fickle, flighty, superficial, lighthearted, changeable. Gemini is a social creature, Scorpio likes privacy.

Restrained Virgo has trouble keeping up with highly demonstrative Scorpio and doesn’t understand what all the fuss and bother is about. Scorpio can fly into jealous rages for no reason, even if Virgo has proved to be a faithful mate, and the general Scorpio views are hard for Virgo to take or agree with for Virgo always sees the other side of the situation and the other persons point of view. In other words Scorpio can be roughly frank. The spiritual affinity is possible for some time, and then Scorpio will probably begin to search for new sexual partners. Friendship may be the best idea here.

Sagittarius is playful about sex and finds Scorpio’s intense, dominating passions too much to cope with. Soon Sagittarius’s inclination is to fly. Their mutual attraction is explained by sex and can not last for a long time. A one night’s affair – yes; a marriage -NO.

Scorpio and Aquarius Love Compatibility

This combination usually ends up getting into unpleasant terms after a little time. Fueled by Scorpio’s volatility and Aquarius’s imaginativeness, sex is quite out of the ordinary. But Aquarius is turned off by Scorpio’s powerful and jealous passions, and Scorpio is upset by Aquarius’s unpredictable moods. Aquarius constantly participates in numerous public affairs. Scorpio can’t bend the Aquarius to his/ her will, because of Aquarius’ love of freedom. The Aquarius is extremely sociable. The Scorpio is reserved. The happiness in bed will not help this couple to be happy together. Let everyone go their own way.
