Guess who's in charge here? You've got it, the strong Scorpion, who is not quite ready to be controlled by others.
This can make for an interesting relationship dynamic.
What the Scorpion wants are passion love and money from a lover, and the absolute best where all three are concerned.
Scorpions are possessed of a steely determination and a strong sense of what is best for them.
Thankfully, this often takes into account their partner, and they are quick to be giving with the right lover and to make their life very easy.
As long as the Scorpion wins, there will be harmony in the mating game.
The ideal Scorpio soul mate can go twelve rounds anywhere.
There's a hard-to-pin-down, magnetic quality which surrounds the Scorpion, an aura which says "try me if you dare!"
And that's just what Scorpions want, someone fearless who is willing to help create the ultimate romance, one which will take them to greater heights than ever before.
When this works, the Scorpion's passions are unleased with hurricane force.
If, however, the romance zigs and zags, bouts of jealousy may be the unwelcome result.
Ruling planets Mars, and Pluto might prompt Scorpio to think that romance is a clash of wills, but a clever lover is the one who can bring this warrior to see that a pincer movement to the heart is the sweetest of all.
The Scorpion is as clever in love as in life: much of what's going on is a tactical game, one they are more than likely to win.
When in love, the Scorpion can be intensely passionate.
Often, though, there is a push-pull in the dance of love, thanks to the Scorpion's many motivations.
A lover who is willing to discover what's really beneath the surface will serve both the Scorpion and themselves very well.
WHAT SCORPIO NEED
A challenge is something which makes the Scorpion swoon -- the prospect of someone who can test them, who can make the game fast and fun, is almost irresistible.
Scorpio, of course, wants nothing but the best, so winners only need apply.
Scorpions are also eager to find a strong, understanding and perceptive partner, someone who embraces the many facets.
What else? Someone who won't judge them, who possesses raw personal power themselves, who keeps the game interesting, who knows how to talk when it's important to the relationship. Not much to ask, eh?
The Scorpio lover is determined, forceful, has great passion and strength and finishes what they start.
The Sun in Scorpio gives you amazing powers of tenacity and resistance. The keynote of your personality is willpower. You are courageous, too, but your courage is tempered by a healthy measure of caution. This saves you from the extremism to which your rigid determination in the struggle for existence might otherwise lead.
Your magnetic personality is a bit of a mystery to most people. You are secretive and deep. You are also physically passionate and a demanding sexual partner. You have a tendency towards moodiness and depression if your sexual needs are not met. Once you become emotionally involved with another you are tenacious in your desire to hold what you have. You can be possessive as well as demanding and subject to fits of jealousy over those you love. You are very intense.
Your very strength of character can lead to a certain degree of callousness towards the feelings of others. Your strong willpower comes at a price. You do not disguise your opinions, and those with whom you come into contact soon know whether you find them congenial or not! Those you like can count on your steadfast faithfulness; those you don't will often suffer from your occasional caustic remarks and sarcasm.
In terms of possible careers, those in the Sign of Scorpio can succeed in science, medicine, or careers where technical competence is required. You will read the undercurrents and the power plays going on between people in the workplace with ease and use these to your advantage.
When Scorpios are ill, they often recover quickly through sheer willpower. They have strong constitutions, yet can be their own worst enemy by drinking, drug taking and smoking to excess. They are particularly susceptible to urinary tract and reproductive organ infections.
Scorpio people can learn a lot from those with the Sun in Taurus. The good humour and love of pleasure and enjoyment of the Taurus counterbalances the secrecy and intensity of the Scorpio.
If youíve ever met someone that you found irresistible from the moment you met, it was probably a Scorpio. They are fascinating and have an air of mystery about them. Although, what you see on the surface is only what they want you to see.
They may appear direct and just a bit forceful, but underneath they are vulnerable and sensitive. Scorpions take love very seriously and are searching for admiration from a partner.
etting a date with a Scorpio is easier than forming a long term relationship with them. You will probably have no trouble seducing them, however if youíre looking for an extended relationship, thatís a little harder.
Although the Scorpion can appear, at times, to be a loner, itís a deception that guards them against being hurt as they tend to wound easily. Once they commit to a long term relationship, the Scorpion will be a faithful mate providing both financial security and dependability.
Plan a day at the beach, a social affair, or do something recreational as they enjoy places where they can associate with other people. They appreciate being listened to and want to know that they have your complete undivided attention. Although itís hard to get into an argument with someone born under this sign, if you become insistent and disrespectful toward them, it will happen. They also hate to be dominated along with being taken for granted.
Keep in mind that the Scorpion can be extremely jealous and protective of the person they choose to spend their life with. They seek someone generous, loving and affectionate that will provide them with the feeling of security. In turn they will provide plenty of passion, affection, and complete devotion in the relationship. They will always take your feelings into consideration and have a great deal of energy when it comes to passion.
Ruling the House of Sex can either be a blessing or a curse, and a lot depends on how the wily Scorpion deals with this erotic burden.
Those mystical and magical creatures born under the sign of Scorpio are quick to channel their raw energy, power and strength into an exploration of their lover's emotions and sexuality.
The Scorpion is intuitive and wants to get to the bottom of things, so there's no keeping secrets from this sexy kat (although they'll surely keep a few of their own).
An alluring resourcefulness and self-confidence is also evident in Scorpios, these folks being keenly attuned to what's best for them and how to get it.
Anyone willing to take on the Scorpion will be engaging a cosmic power with plentiful sexual urges.
The good news? A caring and devoted lover awaits.
On the flip side, don't cross 'em, because those pincers can leave a heckuva welt.
Scorpio, the eighth sign of the zodiac, is
ruled by Pluto and symbolized by the Scorpion. Do you know someone
who is deep, secretive and reclusive yet open and honest, strangely
aloof but at the same time intensely loyal, brooding and mysterious
yet straightforward and unusually direct, vengeful yet forgiving,
who, in short, seems to be a bundle of opposites all bound up in a
deeply perplexing and intriguing personality? That person is probably
a Scorpio, but before you start writing off all the Scorpio people
you know as contradictory, inconsistent or some kind of absurd
radicals, there are certain things you should know about their
Plutonian personalities. All their seemingly conflicting qualities
are but opposite sides of the same coin, and that coin glows
beguilingly under Pluto's icy-hot intensity. Scorpio is a sign of
extremes, and just as dry ice can feel hot to the touch because of
its extreme coldness, Scorpios can portray an endless array of
seeming opposites which, from a deeper perspective, aren't really
opposite at all. The nature of their ruling planet, Pluto, is to seek
out the underlying causes and unifying factors behind appearances.
Natives of Scorpio know instinctively that appearances can be
deceiving, and they are forever trying to look beneath the surface to
discover the essential nature of things.
Theirs is a sign of extremes, and true to their zodiacal heritage,
Scorpios may exemplify one of two extremes typified in their Sun
sign: the soaring eagle or the avenging serpent. As the soaring
eagle, Scorpios can aspire to the heights of human achievement, some
even reaching greatness. Music or literature of enduring quality,
outstanding achievements in the cultural or performing arts,
masterpieces of architectural design, or significant contributions in
any of the arts or sciences are testimonials to those individuals who
utilized the Plutonian influence in its most exalted form. Some
soaring eagles can envision a project of such grand proportions that
it may not be realized in their lifetime. The Scorpio native of this
type wishes to attain the ideals of truth and excellence as
represented in some physical form no matter what the cost or
sacrifice, and Pluto gives him the power of will to achieve it.
As avenging serpents, Scorpios exemplify the darker side of their Sun
sign. Activities from the more unseemly side of life such as
prostitution, pornography, gambling, drugs, loan sharking, and all
illicit and underworld activities come under the domain of Pluto-influenced
individuals who have given in to their lower natures. Scorpio
natives of this type seem always to be flirting with death, as if
living on the edge somehow satisfied their need for extremes and
intensity of experience. No other sign in the zodiac is capable of
greater extremes, having within it the potential for the highest
pinnacles of human achievement, or the lowest depths of debauchery.
The stereotype of a gangster who has studied classical violin is one
example of a fallen eagle whose darker side got the best of him. Most
Scorpios will fall somewhere in between these two extremes as the
reclusive scorpion, but the potential for either is always there.
With these natives it is basically a matter of choice. With their
extreme powers of will and concentration, Scorpios can do anything
they set their minds to.
Pluto's intensity is evidenced quite clearly in the physical
appearance of Scorpios. The frame of the body can range from thickset
to thin and wiry, and it will usually be somewhat compacted, firm and
swarthy. Most of them will have powerful physiques, as if their
musculature were made of sprung steel. Even the more wiry Scorpios,
and there are quite a few, will have a sinewy appearance, suggesting
an inner tension or defensiveness. Their air of self control, even
superiority, as reflected in their calm, cool composure, belies an
inner intensity, as that of a volcano about to erupt. The most
noticeable facial feature is the Scorpio's piercing eyes. They'll
become transfixed, devoid of emotion or weakness, seeming to
penetrate to your very soul, bearing its innermost depths. Because of
this, many people find it a little more than uncomfortable under a
Scorpio's hypnotic gaze, and for good reason. Those reptilian eyes
can be doing a pretty good job of appraising your personality and
discovering your best-kept secrets without your uttering a word. As
for the rest of the facial characteristics, the forehead and eyebrows
are usually heavy, and there may be a hint of the sardonic in the
expression. The hair is usually dark and coarse, tending to waviness
or curls. The mouth is firm, sometimes suggesting a grimace, and the
chin determined. The features in general reflect the qualities of the
sign, combining inner strength, willful determination, and an
inscrutability of expression.
Scorpios are more mystical then they would have you believe. These
natives seem to have a distinct ability for perceiving the truth
beyond what their physical senses tell them. you wouldn't necessarily
call them psychic, although many of them are extremely gifted in this
respect, but they'll see through your deception or pretenses every
time. Your little white lies won't hold water in a Scorpio's company.
Rather than call you on your foibles, he'll probably walk away,
leaving your falsehood to the bafflement of less perceptive signs. A
Scorpio can do that quite easily. He'll simply write you out of his
circle of close associates, or out of his life permanently if you've
irritated him enough, and never look back. November-born have a
passion for the truth, and they won't stand to have it maligned by
ulterior motives or ego, at least not in their presence. If you're
lucky enough have a Scorpio as a friend, you can consider yourself in
a special class of people. Though he may not have many friends, the
ones he does have are true and loyal, like himself. He'll risk much
for those he considers worthy of friendship, but cares little or
nothing for those he considers lower than himself. Some call it
selfishness, but in reality it's selectivity.
Either you'll love Pluto people or you'll hate them, and these
natives wouldn't have it any other way. They can't abide those who
only want to commit themselves halfheartedly, or who ride the fence
as opportunists, hypocritically embracing affiliations which give
them the greatest personal advantage. These will be effectively
removed from the Scorpio's social sphere, and the Pluto native
himself may add a few well-chosen derisive remarks in the process to
permanently sever the tie. If you've ever been on the receiving end
of a Scorpio's scorn, you know how effectively and in so few words he
can cut you to the quick. A Scorpio who's been wronged can be a
worse-than-vicious adversary. Trample on his petunias, and he'll
throw weed killer on your whole crop of tulips and maybe even your
chrysanthemums as well. Embarrass him at a party, and he'll take out
an ad in the local newspaper intimating your darkest secrets. In
vengeance, he'll not be content in merely settling the score, but in
devastating you so completely that there will be no possibility of
The Scorpio passion is legendary, and you won't find many Pluto
people who don't bear out this aspect of their personality in more
ways than one. They'll pursue everything with an all-consuming
passion-- their religion, politics, philosophy, work, good food,
hobbies, recreation, not to mention love and romance. The very
mention of this Sun sign can conjure up in people's minds visions of
steamy boudoirs, clandestine rendezvous, and sex-filled weekends in
the mountains, and they might not be far from the truth. Scorpios
have been known to outdo other signs in the love department, at least
in its physical aspects; it is their love of extremes which drives
them to the very depths of human passion. An account of the typical
male Scorpio's escapades can read like something out of a James Bond
movie. The females will show no less prowess, instinctively knowing
the subtle secrets of male seduction embodied in their sex. Both
sexes will have their share of experiences, but once they've
committed themselves to a partner and finally settle down, they can
be quite faithful. They're loyal, remember, and this aspect of their
personality doesn't stop short of marriage.
The average Scorpio isn't long on conversation. If you happen to
catch him on the telephone, it's not likely he'll be doing most of
the talking. His fragmented phone rhetoric might go something like
"yea...yea...nope... okay...bye," and you'll have no idea
what the conversation was about. He's not likely to tell you either.
It isn't that natives of this sign are particularly unsociable
(though you will find one or two who tend to stay by themselves);
it's just that they don't see the need to indulge in idle
conversation, even for social reasons. Unless a Scorpio feels that
what he's saying is truly important, his end of the conversation may
amount to little more than monosyllables politely interjected among
your many comments. This trait of Scorpios can get pretty
frustrating, especially to the more talkative signs, and pulling
teeth can seem like an easy task compared to getting these natives to
talk. Before you think about actually using that tooth extractor,
however, try changing the drift of the conversation to religion,
philosophy, sex, reincarnation or the ancient mysteries of life, and
you may be surprised at the transformation that takes place. The
Scorpio will go on talking for hours if he thinks you're interested,
and you'll discover what deep minds November-born can possess,
capable of probing the unfathomable depths of consciousness and
discovering the great truths therein.
If a Scorpio comes down with the flu, chances are he won't stay sick
too long. November-born have almost mystical powers of healing, and
they'll seem to get over illnesses in a much shorter time than other
signs. Their recuperative powers, however, are not without price, and
violent fevers, boils or blisters, involuntary tremors, or profuse
sweating may precipitate the cure. If they stay sick longer than a
short time, it is usually serious, and probably of some degenerative
illness brought on by excesses or bitterness. Even then, if the Pluto
native can learn the lessons of forgiveness, repentance, and Divine
Love, he can almost literally bring himself back from the dead.
Scorpio is often symbolized by the phoenix rising triumphantly from
its own ashes, to begin a new life cycle. The recuperative powers of
these natives can be that strong. Scorpios may also extend their
healing ability to others, and many of them are active in one of the
healing arts. Medical men, especially surgeons, holistic healers,
spiritual healers, acupuncturists and psychic healers all have the
ability of tapping into the regenerative power of Pluto to work their
healing miracles. Ultimately, Scorpios realize that all healing comes
from a divine source, which is why this Sun sign is often associated
with the priest or priestess. Through their directive power of will,
November-born can be effective channels of healing, not only of body
but of mind and spirit also.
