Magnetic, elusive, sexy and determined. That’s you Scorpio! You were born under the eighth sign of the zodiac which is referred to by astrologers as a fixed water (ice) sign. In a lot of ways ice sums up your emotional character. But why is this, when you have fiery and warlike Mars ruling you?
Your star sign is probably one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. It has had a pretty bad rap over the years, but that’s just because what people don’t understand, they tend to fear. That cool aloofness is just the surface of your complex nature, and is by no means bad. Below the surface of your cool exterior is a scorching and passionate fire. You know it and others sense it too.
You’re an emotional being, and you take it to the limits. In fact you need overkill to feel really alive. You also want approval, though you don’t often verbalize that. You give 100 percent of yourself to those you love, and expect the same, if not more, in return. There are definitely no half measures in your attitude to love.
You are demanding of yourself and others, but when you give your heart to someone you’re very loyal. You are committed to anything you do, including relationships — you absolutely adore the idea of love. It’s a challenge that excites you.
You turn heads whenever you walk into a room — you are the strong, silent type, and you have a magnetic aura. You have something that’s hard to put your finger on but makes it nearly impossible for people to ignore you. You know full well that you can manipulate people, and you love it! This magnetic power is really your greatest strength.
It’s well known astrologically that the eyes of a Scorpio can hypnotize. Whether you know it or not, this is your most powerful physical trait. Often people will often say that you have amazing eyes. So even though you don’t always articulate your feelings, your eyes do plenty of communicating for you — they can express the full range of your emotional states.
Determination is another of your key characteristics. People can see you as insensitive to others’ needs, even obsessive, because you push forward so single-mindedly. There are no half-measures in your life — in friendship, love, family life or work. You want to be the best, and you won’t let anything stand in the way. But on the plus side, you like to share your successes with the people you take under your wing, whether they’re family or friends.
You’re not afraid of obstacles or challenges, whether they are something unavoidable or foes or competitors. In fact, you thrive on them — you love trying to prove that no one can stop you.
If someone tries to corner you or put you in a difficult situation, they’d better be prepared to give it their best shot, because you won’t give in until you win, and your enemy is totally crushed in body, mind and spirit.
If that ruthless streak in your character can’t be satisfied straight away, you’ll wait, patiently, until the proper time to seek revenge. Time is of no consequence to you when it comes to wreaking vengeance.
Whether you’re fulfilling your sensual appetites or your more noble aspirations, pleasure will always be a focus for you. You want it all. You are not afraid of the dark side, even though you seek the light. This is why Scorpio has three totems — the scorpion, the lizard and the phoenix.
The scorpion is the most vengeful and dangerous part of your nature. If you’re operating on that level, you’ll be constantly seeking to hurt others with your power. This is, of course, something to avoid.
The lizard represents the class of scorpions who hide from life and never quite achieve the full measure of their power. They sometimes seek self-destructive outlets such as drugs or even criminal activities to satisfy their obsessive nature.
If you aspire to the best that Scorpio has to offer, you’ll be the phoenix, which rises out of the ashes. This transformative totem indicates that you have to burn your lower nature to allow the most splendid parts of your nature to live and grow. Fortunately, most Scorpios lean towards the phoenix.
In appearance you will be well proportioned, strong in body, muscular, and with a broad face and a commanding look. Your eyes, as already mentioned, are your strong point.
You are a tireless worker and generally achieve great success after the middle part of life.
The life of a Scorpio is challenging, but there’ll never be a dull moment’
THREE CLASSES OF SCORPIO
October 24 – November 2
Born between the 24th October and 2nd November you are an intensely sensual character but you do have noble aspirations. Pleasure will be a focal point for you and in your earlier life you may spend a lot of time exploring the sexual part of your personality.
November 3 – 11
Being born between the 3rd and 11th November makes you more idealistic and spiritual by nature. You have a strong leaning towards understanding the meaning of life and delving deeply into the true nature of your being.
November 12 – 22
If you were born between the 12th and 22nd November you are one of the more sensitive types of Scorpio as you have strong lunar vibrations. Your challenge will be to bring your emotions under control and not be swayed by the events of life. You have a very caring and family orientated nature as well.
BORN ON A CUSP?
Scorpio – Libra Cusp
If you were born in the period between October 24th and November the 1st you fall over the area of the zodiac that is jointly ruled by both Libra and Scorpio.
These star signs are ruled by Venus and Mars and Pluto, which gives you the traits of both signs of Libra and Scorpio.
The intensity of Scorpio is somewhat balanced by the sign of Libra and makes you even more attractive and pleasing to others, especially the opposite sex. You have great people skills and a need to help others through your intuitive understanding.
You love excitement and the pleasure seeking aspect of your nature combined with the social skills of Libra make you a social butterfly that can attract loads of friends, both in your social life and your professional arena as well.
The best and worst traits of both star signs will be exhibited by you and you have a great deal of determination, powerful self – control and excellent psychic and intuitive abilities as well. However, the social and superficial attributes of Libra are counteracted by the serious and philosophical characteristics of Scorpio.
You have extraordinary intelligence and insight into human nature but your sharp tongue and straight forward opinions make you sometimes feared by others as you don’t mince words when you offer your critique on other personal or social and political issues.
Some people feel that you have an extraordinarily big ego, and you probably agree, but this doesn’t worry you in the least. You have a charismatic personality and you expect to make some enemies on the way and aren’t bothered as the huge number of friends you have as allies outdo the number of antagonists in the background.
You’re an expert in communication and have wonderful reasoning power. You’re a strong lover of family and support the people you love, even sacrificing anything and everything to maintain their security.
Scorpio – Sagittarius Cusp
If you happen to be born between the 15th and the 22nd of November, you will partake of both traits of Scorpio and those of Sagittarius. Some astrologists may disagree with these dates but in actual fact you’ll find that there are in practice, characteristic traits of both signs to a greater or lesser degree that you will possess.
Your intense Scorpio traits are finely balanced by the easygoing, magnanimous spirit of Sagittarius. Those of you born under this period of the zodiac are ruled by Mars, Pluto and Jupiter which is the ruler of Sagittarius. You have an optimistic nature but can also be rather aggressive in achieving your goals. You are constantly on the go, working with zeal to achieve your dreams.
Your magnetic personality is accentuated even further by popular and outgoing Jupiter. You have a brilliant sense of timing and can meet the right people at the right time who will help you get to where you’re going.
You are an emotionally deep person and, coupled with the Sagittarian honesty and generosity you are the type of person that people trust easily and will open their hearts to. Even return will always be there to help others and are even considered somewhat of a teacher of sorts. You are constantly driving and advising others, friend or stranger alike, in the way they should best proceed in the midst of their life problems.
You are an extraordinarily independent person and hate to be contained by anyone. You are quite wild and fun loving but this should taper off as you get a little older.
You are excessive in your life and must be careful not to overdo things. You work, live and play hard. You need to pay more attention to your physical needs as at times you overdo it and your health is prone to suffer.
