The Scorpio Personality

Out of the 12 signs of the zodiac, Scorpio is the most fiercely determined and the one who will never give up or give in. They put themselves to the test on many occasions throughout their life and are always attracting and facing dramas that cause an overtaxing of their mental and physical qualities. They are very good at ferreting out certain secretive information and are excellent intuitive thinkers. Scorpio is specifically related to sex, so the exploitation of this as a theme, overtly, covertly or symbolically, can work well for many Scorpio people. Sex has always been a money-spinner in advertising and Scorpios are great innovators when it comes to getting the message across. Scorpios love excitement and are full of daring; this is why they enjoy doing anything that presents great challenge. The greater the pressure, the greater the determination is for Scorpio; they find stress a part of their everyday adventures and in most cases thrive on it. Scorpio people have good leadership qualities; they are determined, persistent and wilful, and like to be in control of the situation at hand. They can accept discipline and direction from others, providing it is fairly administered, otherwise all hell can break loose and Scorpio's flag of social justice will fly with a vengeance. Scorpios are extremely selective with friendships; however, when you make a Scorpio friendship, you have him or her for life. Scorpios are very protective of those they love.


Scorpio in Love

The Scorpio person is known as the sexpot of the zodiac, an eternally intriguing creature who will either fascinate or frighten every emotional relationship they enter into. Scorpios are really sexy pussycats, either a Tom or a Girl, with a hot body and a cool mind. They can be magnetic, lusty and endowed with mysterious romantic powers, and they can devastate with a look or revitalise with lots of healing energy. Scorpios can be passionate, intense, vindictive and an all-or-nothing extremist. They can be very loyal souls and will choose their commitments carefully. They can be very secretive, born detectives and quite possessive of a lover. Woe and behold any partner they are involved with who jumps the fence for a bit of sex elsewhere; Scorpios would almost castrate him or weld a locked chastity belt on her when they find out.

Scorpios can use passionate sex to control their lover and they like to dominate as well. Sexual lust is always a part of their makeup, for they are very physical and warm people. However, they also have the capacity to turn it off when they need to. The Scorpio woman is like Scarlet O'Hara. ‘All's fair in love and war' is her motto and she can be turned on with kinky sex aids, erotic sculptures and sexy music. Her ideal lover would have a combination of John Travolta, Charles Bronson, James Bond and Ben Affleck. A Scorpio man's ideal lover needs to be a classy type of woman with a mixture of Marilyn Monroe, Nicole Kidman, Demi Moore and Grace Kelly. Scorpios are very ambitious and will endeavour to push their partner along at the same time. They attract to the opposite sex like a magnet and, throughout their life, they will always encounter dramas and intense experiences with their love life.


Health and Wellbeing

Scorpio governs the excretory and generative organs, the heart, throat and bloodstream. The Scorpio constitution is strong, with great power to resist infection and disease. Scorpios should be careful with afflictions of the bladder, haemorrhoids, and pains in the groin, prostate gland and reproductive system problems. Kidney and liver problems can be brought on by overindulgence in the good life. It is important for you to always watch diet and get plenty of exercise.


Career and Occupation

Scorpio's destiny is split into two phases. The first one will be hard, with much work and many limitations, a difficult beginning. But all of this will strengthen their resolve in time. The second phase will be that of achievement and professional success; this will come around the middle of their lives. Scorpios will have the patience and perseverance needed to secure everything they want. They will combine their ambitions with an altruistic and noble vision. They look for important jobs with authority, while remaining humble. They have a deep sense of justice through the many situations and changes in their lives. Scorpios will have professional prestige and will involve themselves in activities where they have authority.

Many people will love them and many will secretly envy them. Their career choice may be one of the following professions or a combination of several: entrepreneur, educator, builder, artist, musician, clothes or furniture designer, doctor, movie or theatre director, member of the military, claims adjuster, archaeologist, cemetery coordinator, credit manager, criminologist, detective, diver, marine biologist, garbage collector, security guard, insurance broker, counsellor, horticulturist, farmer, miner, tax consultant, printer, butcher, astrologer, scientist, journalist, distiller, researcher, secretary, travel consultant, public relations expert or sales representative, or any other activity providing management positions. Any career that offers challenge, danger and excitement will attract Scorpios.

Danger and adventure are like a honey pot to the Scorpio person. The idea of something being impossible to achieve is inconceivable for Scorpio people. Being a secretive Water Sign, any career that involves working with fluids, especially the hospitality industry, will attract many. Many Scorpios enjoy the rural areas, and anything that has a beginning and end will attract them, such as farming, the fishing industry, funeral directing and the medical industry. Scorpios are known for exploring things and this is why they attract to anything to do with the unknown, like astrology, astronomy, botany, clairvoyance, private investigations, psychiatry, gossip reporting, industrial chemistry, inventions, or any other occupation that involves unravelling hidden, secret or unknown facts.


The Scorpio Woman

The Scorpio woman is an intriguing individual with a magnetic personality. Her intuition is strong and she has an obsession with power as a means of getting what she needs and wants. Persistence, determination and wilfulness are her middle name, and she usually gets exactly what she wants. She has an extremist attitude: all or nothing. She loves her privacy and she also demands secrecy, especially in matters of the heart. Scorpio women are very complex individuals. There is always a drama in their lives, especially on the emotional side. They are known for the passionate, lusty, sexual side of their personality; they hunger for love and affection and can become possessive of their partners. Glowing with intensity, they step up to a challenge with glee. If someone crosses them their intensity turns to revenge and they can become extremely vindictive. Scorpio women have a compulsive side to their personality; when they want something it has to be yesterday. They are the most self-sufficient, confident women in the zodiac, handling extreme situations with ease. They were born to win. Their psychic powers assist them in difficulty and they can size up an opponent very quickly.

Many Scorpio women have to let off steam occasionally and, in an argument, they tend to go all the way, even to the point of thinking they are right when their error is obvious. Stubbornness is something they are born with. They will dig in their heels and even sacrifice something they love to ensure they win the battle. Scorpio women are very loyal and usually choose their partners carefully. Once they meet their perfect match they will do everything to keep the relationship together. They are very selective with their friendships, too, preferring a small circle of friends with whom they stay close for many years. They are generally curious and adventurous, always interested in new things and very competitive in everything they take up seriously. To sum up, the Scorpio woman is combative, secretive, self-indulgent, possessive, unusual, self-destructive and a prime mover of destiny.


The Scorpio Man

The Scorpio man is deep, enigmatic, reserved and even secretive. People do not make friends with him easily. It takes time for this man to feel comfortable with someone. He is very reserved and refuses to lower his personal barriers and open up to reveal his inner-self. He is a man with strong feelings and convictions, and has courage, determination, fortitude and staying power. You will admire his stubborn strength of character and the drive and personal resources he displays when he is highly motivated or is dealing with a major challenge. The Scorpio nature is enthusiastic and ambitious; if Scorpio men set their sights on a target or goal they will follow through resolutely. Their willpower is incredible when it comes to achieving objectives or dropping a habit. People respect and honour this trait. Feeling strongly about an issue, the Scorpio man will not usually be open to alternative arguments. His tongue can be sarcastic and cutting. There may be times when his biting response wounds others deeply. Scorpio men do not quickly forgive and forget a hurt, and are apt to get even when their opposition least expects it. They can retaliate without blinking an eye. They can also be very pushy and controlling at times and have a tendency to goad others a little too much. The home and family will be a source of great joy to Scorpio men, for they have deep, loving family ties and like building a settled, comfortable, secure home.

The Scorpio mind is astute, investigative, perceptive and intuitive, and can make mincemeat out of difficult decisions or complex problems and issues. Having come to a decision, Scorpios draw a conclusion and stand firmly by it. They are very perceptive and often offer others insights that are truly outstanding and beneficial in a philosophical way. Scorpio men are particularly virile, passionate and sexy. The sensual intensity and power in their expressions will generate a torrid, tempestuous ardour that the opposite sex finds searing, excitingly explosive and engulfing. They can be jealous, possessive and suspicious, however. Consequently it is always important to build a relationship of trust with a Scorpio man. He will put so much of himself into achieving his goals that saving money gives him pleasure, but he can also spend extravagantly and be generous to others. Scorpio men love sport, art and music; many have a special talent or a genuine appreciation for anything unusual. Never upset a Scorpio man or be disloyal to him, or he will never trust you again. Scorpios have no respect for wimps or those they consider wimps. They are also irritated by constant change.


Scorpio in 2017



Major Trends

LIFE: Pluto will influence your destiny with great power over 2017 and by your birthday during the latter part of this year, you will be ready to make major directional changes - your ambitions to achieve great things will be strong.  With powerful and dynamic Mars teaming up with sensible Saturn, changeable Uranus, creative Neptune and determined Pluto throughout this year, expect a big cycle of variety and change.

Financial matters for most of this year will be of your own making and you may become more security conscious of your home, family circle, and matters concerning the domestic front. A few pleasant surprises are in store concerning money, relationships, travel and property. You may decide to make your surroundings more comfortable or you may decide to move to a new location.

Throughout this year you are eager to discuss your thoughts and plans with others and you may have a very fruitful brainstorming session, a spirited debate, or a very active meeting with people in which things really get accomplished. From February to June you are verbally assertive and can present your own plan or idea quite convincingly.

Expect to be busy with career, plans, services rendered or received. You may be offered a new position or take up a business direction that is different than your normal routine. Health may need your attention this year; watch your stress levels, fight off that negative feeling and look ahead. A few work pressures can be expected and a reshuffle of your daily routine may be necessary to keep things on an even keel. Stay practical in all transactions and don't bite off more than you can chew, you will have a tendency to go after everything you want, without thinking of the end product.

From July to October you could be moving up the ladder of success; expect a change in your life's direction. This will be a very hectic communications year with lots of interviews, meetings and get-togethers, a few surprises are in store. Excitement can be expected with higher education results, or a new project you're thinking of starting. You should cultivate more self-confidence, break free from the past and don't let feelings of insecurity or inferiority hold you back from your chosen goals.

Travel, or long distance holiday plans can now be confirmed. A social event around your birthdate could turn out to be a highlight in your year. Lots of friendly advice will be given to you and good luck will result from it.

LOVE: With Venus in the sign of Aries between February and June you may put work ahead of your emotional life. It is best to stick to the company of true friends and loved ones rather than frequent with new acquaintances.

Solid relationships will be mutually beneficial this year and a marriage or permanent partnership should run smoothly and your emotional life at this time would be a source of personal growth.

From July you are ready for spiritual growth, happy and rewarding social exchanges and you may find throughout this year you will make some extraordinary compromises towards others. You will have opportunities to make positive friendships with people of an age, class or cultural difference and you may make yourself more attractive and appealing to your new partner or friend. You could also have some fresh stimulating and interesting new ideas about love and emotional expression.

Throughout 2017 you will discover new ways of looking at relationships and communicating openly. During September and October take time out from your daily routine and enjoy the pleasures of social engagements with those you know well, fun times and deep emotional discussions can be discussed in depth.

From your birthdate until the end of this year, your thoughts turn to sincere love and this is a favourable time to bring out any concerns you have in your personal relationships. Agreements and cooperation can be achieved easily now. You feel inclined to speak to others about your innermost feelings, your past, and other personal subjects, which builds closeness and trust in your relationships. You are also a sympathetic listener, drawing out others' feelings and personal experiences. You may hear from someone from the past or reach out to someone you have a long history with or who was once very important in your life.

LUCK: Financial gains can be made through careful planning and good organisation. Friends and relatives may play a big part in your year by helping you achieve your immediate hopes, wishes and desires.

With so many things to do, 2017 will be a cycle full of exciting confusion; especially as to what direction you should take. With lucky Jupiter entering your sign in October you should stick to improving yourself where career and advancement is concerned right up to that time.

From June there could be a few little windfalls indicated through good luck and better judgment. Contacts with people from afar may bring good tidings about a new trend, plan, direction or idea. Friends or work mates may also be passing on some interesting new information to you this year, regarding a good financial tip, or a positive change with your career or responsibilities.

A personal enterprise plan that you may consider this year will turn out well and others may assist you with your goals or help in an indirect way. With a lot of interesting openings around you throughout 2017, try to stay practical in all financial or business transactions; this is not a time to waste any hard earned cash.

This is a beneficial year for legal matters, official business, contracts or anything that adds to your future security. Outdoor interests, sport, hobbies, clubs and the things you like doing best are especially favoured, you are on a whirlwind of happiness and in 2017 you are finishing a long cycle of pressure and stress. Look forward to 2018 that a year to look forward too as you commence your new 12 year cycle.
