Scorpio Characteristics and Profile

"The Scorpion" particularly one of the most energetic and reliable signs in the Zodiac. This is a breathtaking and persuasive personality, incredibly obsessive and expressive. They are dynamic individual and can effortlessly be designed for headship responsibilities. Take into account some of the multifaceted well-known characters are Scorpios: Hillary Clinton, Pablo Picasso, Dylan Thomas, both Simon and Garfunkel are Scorpios. Others include the poet Sylvia Plath and Marie Curie. Marie Antoinette was a Scorpio as well.

Scorpios include a better probability of having genius-level IQs than nearly all of the population; they are strong, decisive and investigative. They are likely to rebel against all-conference and can be political fanatics.

The greatest love match for a Scorpio is Capricorn; they appreciate each other on a thoughtful spiritual, approximately psychic degree. Scorpios offer their hearts wholly and keenly.

Being so exceptional, they can find accomplishment in many employments. Their internal strength can effect in the ice-cold self-control and detachment of a surgeon, the attentiveness of the research as a scientist, and the great courage of a soldier. Whichever line of work in which analysis, investigation, research, dealing with practicalities, and the solving of mysteries are relevant, can fascinate them. So law enforcement and detective work, undercover work and counterespionage, the law, physics or psychology may appeal to them, and they can turn out to be masters of the written and vocal word. They may be most powerful orators and find accomplishment as diplomats or preachers and, if they construct the Church their career, their internal passion can define itself in the spiritual commitment of the spiritualist or the thaumaturgy.

There is no Age for Scorpio in the astrologers Great Year since that will be a bit in the future. What will distinguish that era, we wonder? Will mankind live to tell the tale that long?

Element: Water

Astrologically, the water element symbolizes emotion. Water runs deep; it seeks its own level and will flow until it has found it. The cycle of water is endless with the snows falling in the mountains and melting. The mountain streams join to make the great rivers that run to the sea. The tides and currents churn the oceans. Similarly, our feelings are flowing as they connect the present with past experiences. Sometimes the waters are so deep that we cannot put words to our feelings.

The water of Scorpio is fixed and frozen, but it is a mistake to think that ice doesn't flow. It does flow -- and with great power. Think of a glacier, moving so very slowly, yet with enough power to flatten a forest or even a mountain.

Eighth House: Transformation

Since the Second House is the House of Possessions, the Eighth House opposite it, is about what other people have. This can include sexual issues, for they usually involve another person. It is also about the ultimate transformation -- death -- but not necessarily your own. It could be said that the Eighth House is what we don't know and what we cannot understand. It is surely a House of Hidden Power.

Key Planet: Pluto

Pluto is the Lord of the Underworld. If this sounds scary, it demands a bit more explanation, for Pluto symbolizes everything that is beneath our consciousness. This isn't about the Hell where we are punished. Rather, it is the Hell that William Blake describes as a place "so beautiful that it would torment an angel to insanity." As the key planet for Scorpio, Pluto is intense and powerful, representing those things that we don't or can't understand. And it is from these hidden Plutonic spaces that magical transformations arise.

Your Biggest Strength: Your passion about your feelings.
Your Potential Weakness: Need for secrecy can be isolating.

Friendship Compatibility

Will you ever find anyone who meets your standards of perfection? Probably not, but you still enjoy the friendly company of others -- particularly intuitive sorts like Cancer and Pisces. With these emotionally intelligent influences, you share the ability to face feelings and act upon them. Aries helps bring out your thoughts into the open where they can be acted upon, while you respect Leo's innate leadership cred and charisma. When you need someone who has a strong personality and who will call you out when you're being too domineering, Taurus is only too happy to step up. You'll also find that Leo and Aquarius are good diplomats around you because they're most comfortable when everyone cooperates in an effort to maintain some semblance of stability.

Scorpio Relationships

Scorpio Women

Intense, smoldering and secretive, a Scorpio woman is the definition of sex appeal. Your mysterious air makes men wonder, "What is she hiding?" And girlfriend, he's likely to become obsessed with finding out! Ruled by Pluto, the planet of transformation, you take your guy to new heights and depths. You're constantly reinventing yourself, which keeps things fresh and interesting. And your bitchy edge shows him you're not to be messed with (a huge turn-on to most men).

Your soft exterior and inner toughness are a dynamite combination, and you're often drawn to the "dark side" of existence, which is why Scorpio Jodie Foster always takes those supernatural roles. If it's hidden from the public view, then it's in your natural realm. You can ferret out your man's private thoughts and psychoanalyze him in a way that's a bit scary but sexy, too. Cultivate your dangerous edge by parachuting out of planes or racing motorcycles together -- that'll raise his kundalini energy!

Scorpio Men

There's a quiet intensity to the Scorpio guy that'll reel you in. One look in those smoldering eyes (like those of Scorpio Joaquin Phoenix), and you're a goner. Even sexier is his sultry voice. This guy can literally mesmerize you. That's why Scorpios make great magicians and hypnotists. The Scorpion's sexual magnetism comes from someplace deep inside him, and its power is almost palpable. He's definitely not a match for those who want to stay on the surface of things.

Because he's ruled by Pluto, lord of the underworld, this man knows how to keep secrets -- and may frustrate you with his reluctance to share his deepest feelings. But he's definitely not superficial, as you'll discover behind closed doors. If you fear the experience of being utterly consumed, then stay away from the Scorpion. At times possessive and jealous, he thrives on going all the way (and then some) sexually. But if you can match him, he'll bond with you for life. Getting away on a quiet retreat for "just the two of you" will fan the flames of his ardor.

Compatibility Between the Sheets

Scorpio's magnetic force is hard to resist and its sex appeal is legendary, yet Taurus' grounded and earthy nature manages to provide Scorpio with just the kind of challenge this watery sign loves. Placid, stable and content, Taurus is an oasis of calm, just waiting to be stirred up. Scorpio is more than intrigued by Taurus' Bull-like nature and will do just about anything to generate a reaction from this second sign of the zodiac.
