Magnetic, elusive, sexy and determined. Thatís 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 thatís just
because what people donít 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.
Youíre 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
donít often verbalise that. You give 100 per cent 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 youíre very loyal. You are committed to anything you do,
including relationships ó you absolutely adore the idea of love. Itís a
challenge that excites you.
You turn heads whenever you walk into a room ó you are the strong,
silent type, and you have a magnetic aura. You have something thatís
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.
Itís well known astrologically that the eyes of a Scorpio can hypnotise.
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 donít always articulate your feelings, your eyes do plenty of
communicating for you ó they can express the full range of your
Determination is another of your key characteristics. People can see you
as insensitive to othersí needs, even obsessive, because you push
forward so single-mindedly. There are no half-measures in your life ó in
friendship, love, family life or work. You want to be the best, and you
wonít 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 theyíre family or friends.
Youíre not afraid of obstacles or challenges, whether they are something
unavoidable or foes or competitors. In fact, you thrive on them ó you
love trying to prove that no one can stop you.
If someone tries to corner you or put you in a difficult situation, theyíd
better be prepared to give it their best shot, because you wonít give in
until you win, and your enemy is totally crushed in body, mind and
If that ruthless streak in your character canít be satisfied straight
away, youíll wait, patiently, until the proper time to seek revenge.
Time is of no consequence to you when it comes to wreaking vengeance.
Whether youíre 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 ó the scorpion, the lizard and the
The scorpion is the most vengeful and dangerous part of your nature. If
youíre operating on that level, youíll 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, youíll 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 thereíll never be a dull
