Personality and Characteristics of the 12 Astrological Signs – Scorpio:
Scorpio is the eight sign of the zodiac. It is a fixed water sign. Scorpios are intense and secretive. They are one of the most complex signs of the zodiac, a typical characteristic of a water sign.
Scorpios have the ability to see right through anything or anyone. They are penetrating and observant. This sign is ruled by Pluto in modern astrology. Pluto is the planet of domination and transformation. Scorpios have a tendency to do both with usually positive results.
Scorpios make for good detectives with their ability to see through a fog. They are also good physicians, being adept and masterful. A Scorpio is very good at uncovering anything and does well in any occupation that requires that skill, such as investigative reporting and undercover police work. They have the ability to know whether a person is telling the truth or not. It’s best never to cross people born under the sign of Scorpio, as they will often exact revenge when they feel wronged. They are very honest and expect others to be the same.
Scorpio women tend to either dress for success or dress just for themselves. They see no need to impressive others and expect people to return the sentiment. A Scorpio woman will often wear the color blue. Jewelry is usually absent or present in very bold pieces, like a diamond-studded necklace. Sex, getting it and keeping it, is a primary motivator for a Scorpio. They can be very demanding but excellent teachers in all sexual matters. Most Scorpio women and men have many lovers throughout their adulthood, but both sexes are perfectly able to maintain a monogamous relationship if they so desire. Passion and intensity go hand in hand for a Scorpio when it comes to sex and love.
This sign is very compatible with Cancer and Pisces, the other two of the water trinity. Both Scorpio men and women have an intensity others lack, but the men of this sign in particular are not necessarily promiscuous. They are not likely to cheat or juggle multiple lovers at once, but what is important to a Scorpio is to keep his trust. Once a Scorpio man or woman thinks you have betrayed him or her in any way, you risk becoming a secret enemy of the Scorpio. This sign is perfectly capable and skilled at holding a secretive grudge against somebody for years, waiting for just the right moment to exact revenge.
Scorpios make very good platonic friends, for they will keep a secret to their graves. They are uncannily perceptive, making them reluctant to even speak to anyone they instinctively mistrust. They are very good at strategy and tactical planning, making this a reason governmental secret agencies are often full of people born under the sign of Scorpio. Their deep intensity appears to lessen as the Scorpio ages, but they never lose their ability for insight and analysis.
Scorpio boys and girls tend to have close, tight friendships with only one or two children at a time. They are often the class clowns when they are in grade school until they learn to lay off of the sarcasm. They often have strong, intense relationships with their own children, as well as anybody else in their lives.
