The profile was getting too big for one page - Over 300KB.  To make it faster loading and give me more room for new articles, I've now separated  the half the articles on individual pages.  There is now a total 57,364 words in the Scorpio Profile.  Time for a book :-)

If you have visited here before, you may notice a few changes around the place. I have tried to 'unclutter' the layout so you can find different articles easier. I am currently at a loss for new material, although pretty much everything that has been said/written  about Scorpio seems to be here.  Any help on this would be appreciated. 

Foreword: I've been collecting Scorpio articles from books, newspapers, magazines, the net, etc. for several years now. I'm a pragmatic, logical type and thought of astrology as nonsense, but then I started reading a few articles on the Scorpio personality and it seemed like they were personally about me. It may not be true of all Scorpio's who read this, but it certainly sums me up pretty well. Most of the first half of the profile is somewhat cliche, however the latter half has some deep insights into the Scorpio personality.

A lot of the articles will repeat similar Scorpio aspects. I could have removed the redundancies; however, I felt the original article would have been compromised. (Not to mention the amount of work it would have taken).

-- Articles 36 - 40 Added April 2000 --

Over the years, some 'real' astrologers have wrote me and told me that most of the Scorpio material I've assembled  is light-weight, mass audience stuff.  You know the stuff, dark, brooding, sexual charged, vengeful, Scorpios blah blah...  It was the only material I had been able to get hold of and if I'm honest, I'd have to say that the profile was aimed at a 'mass market'.  So, to address this discrepancy I've added  new articles, (in particular 36 to 39) which are.. what would you call them.. Heavyweight.  They are professionally written by notable Astrologers, Psychotherapists, and other luminaries.  These articles are serious reading.  Make sure you have a dictionary handy :-)

None Scorpios may find a few of the articles of interest.  Article 38 has quite a bit about Taurus as article 37 has about Aries.  The other fixed signs of; Taurus, Leo, Aries are given some space in article 36.  Astronomy types - see Article 39.

Article 0 - The Five Scorpio Archetypes.

- Moved to beginning for relevance -

    The Libra-Scorpio Cusp - (Oct. 19 - 25)
    Scorpio I - (Oct. 26 - Nov. 2)
    Scorpio II - (Nov. 3 - Nov 11)
    Scorpio III - (Nov. 12 - 18)
    The Scorpio-Sagittarius Cusp - (Nov.19 - 24)

The Libra - Scorpio Cusp - (Oct. 19 - 25)

   The Libra-Scorpio (L-S) cusp is an overlapping and admixture of the seventh sign of the zodiac (Libra) and the eighth sign of the zodiac (Scorpio). The L-S cusp is a period that can be characterized by themes of drama and criticism. A heightened sense of the drama of life, both in philosophical and personal sense, leads to an increased awareness of the dynamics of one's own existence, both past and present; a highly critical attitude emerges which cuts away careless generalizations and sloppy thinking, and aims for the essence of truth. Such an attitude can lead to profound changes in personal relationships, how leisure time is spent in general to a re-evaluation of one's place in the world.

   Days, which comprise the L-S cusp exemplify various aspects of Drama and Criticism, where the airy, social, theatrical Libra nature confronts the more serious, deeply feeling, and critical nature of Scorpio.
The dramatic "Scorplibran" is one of the most critical individuals of the whole year. Those bored in this period can perfectly embody the spirit of their age but also comment on it. No matter what walk of life they inhabit, their facile minds and often sharp tongues will mark them as individuals to be reckoned with. Most often, if asked their opinion they give it straight out, holding nothing back. Therefore those born on this cusp may be sought out for honest evaluations, but equally well feared and even avoided for their piercing frankness.

   Every cusp personality comprises conflicting elements, being influenced by two very different adjacent signs. In the case of this particular cusp, the highly developed social awareness of Libra can be well integrated with the powerfully controlling detachment of Scorpio. However, conflicts may also arise between intellectual and emotional energies, which may be extremely difficult to bring into balance. Primarily thought-feeling types can mistrust intuitive impulses.

   On the other hand, those born on the L-S cusp also have a wild side, and can at a moment's notice drop their objective stance in favour of risk and adventure. Furthermore, once they are committed to a situation they will usually refuse to stop until the denouement is complete (no matter how painful it may be). Because of their total involvement, and also their charm and attractiveness, those born in this period may indeed be difficult to unseat from a position of authority or for that matter from a place in a lover's heart.


Scorpio I - (Oct. 26 - Nov. 2)

   The Scorpio I period takes intensity as its central image. The days that comprise Scorpio I illustrate the underlying theme of intensity, and the accompanying capacity to guide, formulate and finally transform unpolished materials into highly viable and valuable entities.
Scorpio I people are very intense. Once they get their teeth into something they do not easily let go. Nor do they specialize in compromise. Although they may be referred to as "sunny" Scorpios (not as emotionally drunk as others of this sign), Those born in this period are nonetheless attracted to tragedy and know what it is to suffer.

   Scorpio I's usually have an immediate feeling for whether someone is likely to be a friend or a foe, a general sense of discrimination that stands them in good stead. They can be quite combative toward their opponents, giving no quarter in an argument or dispute. Yet most of their aggression is unleashed from a defensive posture, and they are smart enough to walk away from confrontations that are senseless or place them at serious disadvantage. By the same token these warriors (men and women) rarely waste their energies on lesser opponents.

   Using their charm with great effect is characteristic of Scorpio I's. They have an excellent sense of humour, but can sometimes employ it devastatingly at another person's expense. Indeed, those born in Scorpio I make terrible teasers and if they decide they want to get under a victim's skin, can be at once unmerciful and unrelenting.

   Scorpio I's usually have a strict code, (hopefully moral rather than immoral), to which they adhere. They are interested in motives, often deeming it more important to know why something was done rather than judging an endeavor or action by its outcome alone. Thus a false move will be forgiven by a Scorpio I more readily than an impure motive. Scorpio I's scorn petty or underhanded actions and despise success achieved through deceit. Furthermore they show little interest in apologies and excuses, unless truly sincere and not overly frequent. Where work is concerned, those born in this period tend to be unimpressed by quantity alone, focusing on the quality of services and products. In like manner, they themselves are capable of working very slowly for long periods of time on order to achieve their ends. From a position of authority or for that matter from a place in a lover's heart.


Scorpio II - (Nov. 3 - Nov. 11)

   The Scorpio II personality takes depth as its central image. The days which comprise Scorpio II, symbolically reveal the more serious side of human life, and the ability to go beyond ordinary experience of the internal and external world. As when oil is struck and a geyser explodes, tremendous energies can be released from the layers of the unconscious. Such energies must of course be well directed or destruction could easily result. Ideally, powerful new insights may result at this time.

   Scorpio II people are powerful individuals who are in touch with the dark side of life. Generally Scorpio II's are not in a big hurry. They generally feel that time is on their side and thus are able to wait. Metamorphic change can be affected in themselves and their lives over many years - slowly and unseen. However, those born in Scorpio II must be careful that waiting for the right moment does not itself become the principle activity, a kind of procrastination. The danger here is that such static behavior will lead to brooding, and brooding to depression. During such periods Scorpio II's must beware that their dark side does not come to dominate their outlook.

  It could be said that Scorpio II's have a big advantage in that they are in touch with deep areas of their personalities that others may only sense occasionally, if at all. Whether a Scorpio II makes something out of this understanding remains to be seen. Part of the problem is that although in touch with their deeper thoughts, imaginings and emotions, some Scorpio II's never come to terms with their own profundity. That is, they are confused as to how their deeper understanding of life fits in with ordinary life, making a living, and so on. Furthermore, dredging up such material from the unconscious can be dangerous business and threaten to push more unstable personalities over the edge. For Scorpio II's to find a healthy balance, a give and take with their Plutonic self is a tremendous challenge, but one that can yield valuable results.

   Scorpio II's respond instinctively to the heavier aspects of the human condition. Not only do they tend to sleep more deeply than most people, but also feel more deeply as well. Indeed, some born in Scorpio II can become slaves to the pleasures of the table and the bed, and must be careful that such activities do not come to dominate their lives. For Scorpio II's, words often just get in the way. Many born in this period can effectively express admiration and affection, or on the other hand disapproval and discontent without needing to speak at all.


Scorpio III - (Nov. 12 - 18)

   The Scorpio III period takes charm as its central image. The days which comprise Scorpio III symbolize reveal the attractive powers of the middle aged adult, and the ability to forward aims (but also gain satisfaction) through investigation, observation, seductive charm, and a judicious use of leadership skills. Expressive emotions may be directed constructively as a powerful tool for inspiring others but should not be exercised as a controlling mechanism. Instead, by gaining the trust of co-workers, employees or clients, an emotional bond can be formed which promotes success for all concerned.

   Scorpio III people tend to be highly magnetic, sensual and charming. Thus the responsibility of those born in this period toward their fellow human beings is very great, thought they do not always realize this fact. Should their ethical orientation be less than admirable, they are likely to selfishly use others to further their own ends and perhaps do great damage. Thus, clarifying a healthy working philosophy or moral stance which asserts human values and respects the wishes of others is an essential task for Scorpio III's from the outset.

  Many born in this period seek to be the boss or leader whether at work or at home. In most respects, they are well qualified for such positions of responsibility. Usually Scorpio III bosses are in touch with the emotional needs of those they command, and although they may be highly demanding, they can usually impose rules and delegate responsibilities in an objective fashion which can be easily accepted.

   Scorpio III's have a highly developed sensuality which not only tends to attract others but also leads them to seek out a variety of physically satisfying experiences. Spoiling themselves can become a way of life for those born in the Scorpio III period - particularly satisfying for them are the pleasures of vocations and travel, where the experiencing of newfound joys can figure prominently.

   The inner stability of Scorpio III's is usually so great that it seems it would take an earthquake to knock them off balance. Part of the reason for this is self-control, another part a realistic assessment of their capabilities which keeps them from venturing beyond their limitations. On the other hand, Scorpio III's may have to remind themselves from time to time to take more chances, to truly dare to fail and thus able to reach new heights.

   Perhaps the people who have the strongest influence on Scorpio III's are those who are less under their sway, less bowled over by their charm or magnetic qualities. Indeed, Scorpio III's need at least one good friend who can furnish honest, objective advice and criticism.


The Scorpio-Sagittarius Cusp (Nov.19 - 24)

   The Scorpio-Sagittarius (S-S) cusp is an overlapping and admixture of the eighth sign of the zodiac, Scorpio, and the ninth sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius. The days which comprise the S-S cusp reveal the active social reorganization and attendant conflict that may emerge. The combined energies of the emotionally deep, serious and secretive Scorpio and the intuitive, outwardly-directed, freedom-loving Sagittarius reflect the need to first understand oneself and then to act to institute changes.

   The S-S personality is characterized by rebelliousness against authority. Strangely enough, those born on this cusp who eventually find themselves in positions of authority are often able to wield power skillfully. However, generally speaking, "Scorsagians" do best in self-employed pursuits. Even those who work in larger companies or organizations, or take part in group endeavors, function most effectively when they are allowed a high degree of autonomy.

   Every cusp personality comprises conflicting elements, being influenced by 2 very different signs. Scorpio (water) and Sagittarius (fire) energies can clash, producing internal disturbances. Feeling-Intuitive types, "Scorsagians" may lack the stability of earth and the mental orientation of air, qualities needed to keep them on an even keel.

  Many born on the S-S cusp are prone to wildness, particularly in their youth when they are perhaps painfully aware of being unlike other people. Therefore, they may not even bother to prepare themselves for a more conventional life. On the other hand, those who are forced by difficult experiences to take stock of themselves in their youth may actually gain a rare sense of directness and purpose.

Article 1 - Intro by Carol Richter.

  'The stars guide your path but should not rule your life." - The person who said this was quite an authority on the subject. It was Caroll Righter, the most famous astrologer of or time. In this quotation, Carroll wanted to stop people's blind belief in horoscopes and star signs. She believes that it always depends on how you interpret your horoscope and that it is quite easy for someone to completely misunderstand their star sign and believe that it is made up of a pack of lies. It is quite possible to meet Gemini's who are punctual and reliable, who meet every deadline and don't change their mind from one day to the next.

  And there are Scorpio's who are anything but punctual and reliable, as you would expect them to be. Some Scorpio's are careless and unreliable and never in any way live up to their supposed reputation as wild, passionate lovers. In such cases, you should find out about the ascendants. A person's ascendant is just important as their actual star sign. A Scorpio, with an ascendant in Virgo, can be quite unbearable when his innate Scorpio pedantry is combined with the Virgo obsession with order and cleanliness. If you are not particularly keen on these personal qualities, (or faults if you prefer), you should steer well clear of a Virgo-Scorpio.

  Therefore, it is always advisable, before hopping into bed or living with someone, to ask not only their date of birth, but also their time of birth, which will then give you their ascendant. However, you should never take it too seriously. Instead, remember Carrol Righter's advice: 'The stars guide your path but should not rule your life."

Article 2 - General.

  Scorpio (astrology), the eighth sign of the zodiac, symbolized by a scorpion. According to astrologers, people whose birthdays fall between October 23 and November 21 are born under the sun sign of Scorpio. The planet Pluto rules Scorpio, which is a water sign.

  According to astrologers, Scorpio's characteristically maintain a high level of physical and emotional strength, but also exhibit traits of jealousy and secrecy. Astrologers point to the deep, penetrating nature of a Scorpio's personality and correlate it with water, the elemental force associated with Scorpio.

  Astrologers consider Scorpio's to be energetic, passionate, deep, intuitive, and secretive, with a great deal of self-control. They also believe that Scorpio's can be willful, stubborn, and easily made jealous. Scorpio's are thought to be keen observers of people, and potentially calculating and manipulative. Seeing more of people's deepest motivations than others do, they have a tendency to be cynical. They are sensitive and never forget a hurt or a slight. For the typical Scorpio, forgiveness can be difficult.

  Astrologers consider Scorpio perhaps the most extreme of all signs. The intensity and focus of Scorpio's gives them great ability to see a project through despite all obstacles. Their strong leadership qualities, incisive analytic abilities, energy, and desire for financial security can make them motivated career people. Many Scorpions also like to flirt with danger and push themselves and those close to them to their limits. Professions traditionally associated with Scorpio include forensics, law enforcement or detective work, the military, medicine, psychology, big business, inspectors, governors and recycling.

Article 3 - General.

  Scorpios have evolutionary minds. They are the mothers of invention. Coupled with truly remarkable force of will, they dominate the fields of science, technology and medicine.

  They tend to focus on the task and so are often mistakenly perceived as rude and unsympathetic. Scorpio's have an infamous temper; there is no fury like that of a Scorpio. Their greatest asset is their willpower, which enables them to accomplish beyond their abilities.

Article 4 - The Scorpio Personality.

  Scorpio personality: The Scorpio is an eternally intriguing creature who, like the sphinx, seems to know and guard the riddle of life and death. They either fascinate or frighten all of the opposite sex they meet. They are magnetic, lusty and endowed with mysterious powers. They can move heaven or hell with a single look. Nobody could ask for more than they offer.

  To understand the Scorpio, you must be aware of their need for both privacy and power. They want to make an impact on the world, but also demand secrecy. Their major conflict comes when they realize that leadership comes at the price of their privacy.

  A key word for the Scorpio is use. They certainly use their talents and resources to the best possible effect. However, they also use other people for their own ends and if anyone crosses them, they can be very vengeful. They can be stubborn, as well. Often they dig in their heels to prove they are right, although deep down, they know when they are wrong. They choose their commitments carefully, especially to people. They select a small circle of friends who stay theirs for life.

  Scorpio's are fascinating, but not always easy or likeable. They can be insensitive to people they consider less capable than themselves. They go straight for the jugular and heaven help those who cross their path at a bad time. With no great need for approval, the Scorpio feels completely free to do their own thing. An important clue to understanding them is to realize they trust no one, not even themselves. And because they mistrust, they become fanatically self-protective and secretive about their feelings. 

  It would be a mistake to think they are indifferent deep down. For their embers, rarely cool. It is much safer to assume they are biding their time until the right moment comes to enter the game and rig the dice in their favor.

  Scorpio has two sexual faces. Sometimes they are a fantastic, demanding lover. In addition, at other times they appear asexual. They can drive their mate wild with desire for they intuitively know the art of lovemaking. When they go through times of complete sexual withdrawal, it may be because they feel guilty about some earlier promiscuity.

  They can be a lonely and misunderstood. For in some ways, they are ahead of their time. They are usually out of step with their neighbors, family and friends. It may be their pride that stops them reaching out and asking for sympathy, or perhaps they simply feel mean and nasty and prefer to keep their secrets to themselves. 

  When they are in love, the Scorpio can be a very sexy lover indeed, organizing life to suit their mate. But they should be aware that this might be just a phase. For you can never discount the Scorpio's motives. They may want to be nice of their own free will, but their mate will have to pay for it later. 

  Just about their strongest emotion is jealousy. They feel free to have as many affairs as they like, all at the same time. But will not tolerate that behavior in their mate. Anyone who wants to keep the Scorpio must be prepared to put up with their odd ways and practice dodging those flying ashtrays.

Article 5 - General.

  The kingdom of the Scorpio is the kingdom of power! People born under this sign are masterful and they like to dominate others.

  Scorpio's have a good business sense. They love making money; they are ambitious and usually highly successful. They prefer to work for themselves, so that they are in a position to use their own good ideas and creative talents to the full. They always work too hard and often become nervy and irritable. But they have boundless energy and let nothing and no one stand in their way once they have decided a course of action. They are never bored, they don't have the time.

  They are nearly always psychic. They make excellent doctors because they can diagnose quickly and accurately. They are interested in religion and the afterlife. Scorpio's are moody, however, and can be very difficult to live with. Their own competence makes them suspicious of others and they do not trust people readily.

  Their worst fault is jealousy. If they feel attacked in any way, they strike. But their temper seldom lasts long. Scorpio's never mince their words. If they do not like something about you, something you do, or if they object to one of your friends, they can be brutally blunt! Not everyone can cope with this. Scorpios need a partner determined resolute and self confident enough not to be dominated by their strong personality. 

  Scorpios will protect their own. Romance plays a big part in their relationships, they are expressive and demonstrative of their affections and expect their partner to be reassuring, loving and as good at entertaining as they are.

  Scorpio parents are very kind, generous and loving, but inclined to be possessive and bossy. They always want to know where their children are going and whom they are with. They generally teach their children to be excellent hosts or hostesses. Scorpios generally like to make a lot of money to spend on the family and on keeping the home nice.   

  Scorpios are very hot-blooded, passionate and willing to do anything to satisfy a loved one. They are fiercely determined to possess those they desire. They can overplay their hands, however and be over possessive and even cruel and violent, both physically and verbally, when annoyed. 

  Scorpios are hard working and ambitious both for themselves and their employers and cannot bear having nothing to do. They are very good at making money, but not always good at keeping it. Sometimes they are too generous and long suffering with others who impose.

Article 6 - The Scorpio Male Sexuality. (Penthouse magazine!)

  Scorpio Sexuality: (Male - Penthouse magazine!); you are the sexiest sign in the zodiac! You learnt about sex very early, and very eagerly, in your life. You have a virtually insatiable sexual appetite, and you seldom have much difficulty finding women, for your effortless sexual magnetism and compelling bodily attraction draws them naturally to you. A complete contrast to the refined and classically good-looking Libran (The sign next to yours), your rugged rough diamond features, dressed in an attractively careless and informal way, have an irresistible allure.

  Sex in its many variations is a way of life for the Scorpio Man. You are not naturally attracted to any one particular perversion or deviant sexual practice, you are attracted to them all! Your never-ending quest for the ultimate in sexual sensation will lead you to experiment with the most way-out and bizarre deviations ever conceived. But if there is one aberration that will hold its attraction for you, it is bondage. The Scorpio has a power complex and relishes wielding power in all areas of his life. Since sex is the most important area of his life, The lust for power is especially highly developed here. 

  You are also the most jealous guy in the Zodiac, and can harbor grudges for a lifetime. It often happens that, being particularly vulnerable emotionally, the Scorpio Man is badly hurt by a girl early on in his life.

  You have an intuitive sense of how to please each and every bedmate you come across. There is no detail of a woman's body you will not know intimately after a night with her. You use every part of both your bodies to evoke the most erotic sensations of unashamed sensuality. In a sexual encounter with you, she can discover erogenous zones she never knew existed. You can become quite addictive in many a woman's life. You are certainly not a lover that women find very easy to forget.

  The Scorpio Man may be the sexiest sign of the zodiac, and a night spent with him would certainly be an unforgettable experience. But he is not to be taken lightly; if you really want to savor the mind-blowing sensation of a night with him, you should first understand a bit about him. 

  The Scorpio Man is a law unto himself. He learns early on to trust nobody, and he makes his way in life without relying on the help of anyone. He is ambitious, strong-willed, full of drive, and initiative. But one reason why he is so independent and self-reliant is that, like the Cancerian, he has a very vulnerable inner being under his hard outer shell. And because he is the least forgiving man in the zodiac, he prefers never to run the risk of being hurt. So, keep way clear of any emotional involvement unless you seriously plan to spend your whole life with him.

  If you're a woman and all you want is a good time in bed, well you can certainly have that here. You can even get to wonder whether too much sex can be harmful to the health! However it affects you, sex, far from exhausting the Scorpio Man, seems actually to rejuvenate and invigorate him. It is as though he is feeding off your sexual energy. He may sleep afterwards, if it's a night session, but his batteries will already have been recharged and he will be a dynamo of energy the next day. If you are a virgin, stay well clear! The Scorpio Man would almost certainly be ideal as a first time for you, with his innate sense of what pleases a woman coupled with his sensitivity. However, you would almost certainly fall head over heels for him and he might well have seen it all as yet another romp. 

  The Women most sexually compatible with a Scorpio Man: You are more passionate than any other sign in the Zodiac. This makes compatibility in sexual relationships much easier for you than for most, as your sexual passion can be aroused by a wide variety of women. However, it makes compatibility in emotional relationships more difficult for you than as the other outlet for your deep reservoir of passion is through jealousy for most. You may be the most potent sign in sexual relationships, but you are the most jealous, suspicious and possessive in emotional relationships. Therefore, the woman who gives you the best time in bed may be totally incompatible emotionally. This naturally applies in varying degrees to all signs, but Scorpio men in particular should beware of letting themselves become emotionally involved with a woman just because she is good in bed. A prime example of this is compatibility with your own sign, for you will probably find sex with Scorpio woman perfection. Nevertheless, the Scorpio woman is emotionally unsuitable as a partner. If it is emotional involvement that you want, then the Piscean woman is probably best, followed by Taurus and Cancer, for all three have sufficient emotional depth and sense of fidelity to respond fully to your love without arousing your suspicions. On a purely sexual level, however, the Zodiac is virtually yours to choose from. 

  You less than any other sign need compatibility of temperament in a bedmate. Your inborn awareness of what each different type of woman needs in order to get the most out of sex, coupled with your personal thirst for variation, leads you to look forward to bedding the cool, mental Virgo, (a challenge), just as much as the passionate Arian, (A push-over). Generally speaking, you will probably get least out of sex with the Air Signs of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, and most out of Pisces, Scorpio, Taurus and Virgo. There is no fundamental incompatibility with the women of Capricorn and Cancer. But you will probably enjoy them more for a change than as regular bedmates. You can certainly work up a lot of heat with the Fire Signs of Leo, Aries and Sagittarius, but again they need to be enjoyed as part of your "variety assortment," not a staple diet. 

  The Scorpio has tendency to become reckless, perhaps even arrogant, when their self-confidence is boosted. Remember, you can have sex with complete emotional detachment, but a session with you can have a very illuminating and addictive effect on a woman. Do not let your uniquely powerful sexual instincts submerge totally all sense of responsibility. Stay away from the young and naive.

Article 8 - General - Sign Aspects. By Kelli Fox, Astrology.Net

  Scorpio is the eighth Sign of the Zodiac. After Libra's intellectual exploration of other people, Scorpio's interest is in discovering other People's emotions and how they respond to the world around them. Scorpio is the Sign of Sex and Death, the beginning and ending of things, and they explore these ideas from an emotional standpoint. People born under this Sign are investigative and probing, often strongly intuitive and penetrating. As the eighth Sign, Scorpio also rules the eighth House: the House of Sex. 

  The Astrological Symbol of Scorpio is the Scorpion. Like the mythical Scorpion, people born under this Sign tend to be strong-willed and wary of being controlled by others. At times they can be self-destructive, like the Scorpion who kills itself rather than letting someone else kill it. They are very determined, and once they have made up their minds, they are unlikely to change them. They tend to be stubborn, refusing to give up when others have long since got bored and abandoned a project, and getting things done when no one else thought it possible. In this way, Scorpio exemplifies the Fixed Quality assigned to it.
They are one of the Power Signs (the others being Taurus, Leo and Aquarius). 

  Scorpios tend to have their own agenda, and work intensely to achieve their desires. People who wish to change a Scorpio's mind often have trouble because they can never be sure what their motivation is; Scorpios are too complex and sometimes secretive to be understood easily. Within the Zodiac, Scorpio is opposite Taurus, the Sign of Possessions. While both Signs can be possessive, Taurus is concerned with personal property and Scorpio tends to be about community resources and group investments. They are very resourceful and self-confident.

Article 9 - General - Mars, Pluto, Water, and Phoenix.

  The Planets Mars and Pluto rule Scorpio. In ancient Roman mythology, Mars (and his Greek equivalent, Aries) was the God of War, and ancient astrologers assigned both Aries and Scorpio to this Planet. Pluto (and his Greek equivalent, Hades) was the God of the Underworld, and when the Planet Pluto was discovered early in the 20th Century astrologers assigned Scorpio to this Planet. 

  Under Mar's influence, Scorpio is the behind-the-scenes tactician while Aries is on the front lines. Scorpio's modern ruler, Pluto, represents Death and Endings; it is the Sign of rebirth and regeneration. When the Scorpion loses its tail, it regenerates a new stinger, and Scorpios can be reborn the same way after they suffer losses. In addition, Pluto is a strong Planet. It teaches a valuable lesson: while Scorpio has a tendency to be possessive, Pluto pulls things away. 

  The Element associated with Scorpio is Water. Water Signs are emotional: they tend to respond to the world through emotion, rather than physical action, practicality, or intellect. Scorpio's motto could be "still water runs deep." They may repress their emotions, but underneath they are lusty and perceptive. At times, though, Scorpio's water can be stagnant, depending on whether they use their energy in a positive or negative way. They may be vengeful or vindictive and unable to get past personal slights. Scorpios are motivated and loyal, but they are often misunderstood and people may see them as dictatorial or sarcastic. If they have an ulterior motive, they can be overbearing, but in a subtle, sly, or manipulative way. Scorpios are both mystical and scientific, a combination that makes them very aware of what is happening around them; they are a Sign of great depth. If they aren't careful, though, their passionate nature may lead them into self-indulgence or compulsion.

  The myth of the Phoenix is strongly associated with the Sign of Scorpio. The Phoenix is regenerated from the ashes of its death, and it rises into the sky, reborn. The most highly evolved Scorpios aspire to be the Phoenix or Eagle, rising above the ordinary world and into something extraordinary. Suspicion and jealousy can pull them down, but passion and awareness can help them rise above this. 

  In their leisure time, Scorpios enjoy competition and challenge. They aren't satisfied with moving along at half speed or lowering their abilities to allow people with lesser skills to beat them. They enjoy difficult pursuits that challenge them to excel, and they refuse to settle for being anything less than the best. In love relationships, Scorpio is caring, devoted, and possessive. 

  Scorpio rules the reproductive organs. People born under Scorpio may be more susceptible to infections and fevers than people of other Signs. Scorpio's colors are powerful and strident, like Scorpions: black and red. 

  The great strength of the Scorpio-born is in their determination to see things through to the end. They refuse to allow boredom to turn them away from projects, and they are committed to accomplishing what they set out to do. Their passion and strength makes them one of the most powerful characters of the Zodiac.

Article 10 - Traditional Scorpio Traits.

  Traditional Scorpio Traits..  Determined and forceful, Emotional and intuitive, 
Powerful and passionate, Exciting and magnetic. 

  On the dark side.... Jealous and resentful, Compulsive and obsessive, 
Secretive and obstinate. 

  Scorpions are the most intense, profound, powerful characters in the zodiac. Even when they appear self-controlled and calm, there is a seething intensity of emotional energy under the placid exterior. They are like the volcano not far under the surface of a calm sea it may burst into eruption at any moment. However, those of us who are particularly perceptive will be aware of the harnessed aggression, the immense forcefulness, magnetic intensity and often strangely hypnotic personality under the tranquil but watchful composure of the Scorpion. 

  In conventional social gatherings, they are pleasant to be with, thoughtful in conversation, dignified and reserved, yet affable and courteous, and they sometimes possess penetrating eyes that make their shyer companions feel naked and defenseless before them. In their everyday behavior they give the appearance of being withdrawn from the center of activity, yet those who know them will recognize the watchfulness that is part of their character. 

  They need great self-discipline, because they are able to recognize the qualities in themselves that make them different from other humans, and to know that their utterly conventional natures can be used for great good or great evil. 

  Their tenacity and willpower are immense, their depth of character and passionate conviction overwhelming, yet they are deeply sensitive and easily moved by their emotions. Their sensitivities, together with a propensity for extreme likes and dislikes, make them easily hurt, quick to detect insult or injury to themselves (often when none is intended) and easily aroused to ferocious anger. This may express itself in such destructive speech or action that they make lifelong enemies by their outspokenness, for they find it difficult not to be excessively critical of anything or anyone to whom they take a dislike. 

  They can harness their abundant energy constructively, tempering their self-confidence with shrewdness and their ambition with magnanimity toward others provided they like them. If they do not, or if their feelings are neutral unusual with them they relate to fellow workers only as leaders and can be blunt to those they dislike to the point of cruelty. In fact, they are not above expressing vindictiveness in deliberate cruelty. They are too demanding, too unforgiving of faults in others, perhaps because they are not aware of the shortcomings within themselves, and extravagantly express their self-disgust in unreasonable resentment against their fellows. 

  They do, however, make excellent friends, provided that their companions do nothing to impugn the honor of which Scorpions are very jealous. Part of the negative side of the Scorpion nature is a tendency to discard friends once they cease to be useful, but the decent native is aware of and fights this tendency. They are fortunate in that their strong reasoning powers are tempered with imagination and intuition, and these gifts, together with critical perception and analytical capacity, can enable Scorpions to penetrate to profundities beyond the average. 

  They have a better chance of becoming geniuses than the natives of any other sign. Nevertheless, charismatic "twice-born" characters such as they can sink into the extremes of depravity if they take the wrong path, and the intensity of their natures exaggerates their harmful tendencies into vices far greater than the normal. 

  Rebelliousness against all conventions, political extremism to the point where hatred of the Establishment makes them utterly unscrupulous terrorists, brooding resentment, aggressive and sadistic brutality, total arrogance, morbid jealousy, extreme volatility of temperament these are some of their vices. At the other extreme is the procrastinator, the man or woman who is capable of so much that they do nothing and become indolent and self-indulgent, requiring extravagant praise and flattery from those whom they make their cronies. 

  Being so gifted can find fulfillment in many employments. Their inner intensity can result in the ice-cold self-control and detachment of the surgeon, the concentration of the research scientist and the heroism of the soldier. Any profession in which analysis, investigation, research, dealing with practicalities and the solving of mysteries are relevant can appeal to them. Therefore, police and detective work, espionage and counterespionage, the law, physics or psychology may attract them, and they can become masters of the written and spoken word. They may be most persuasive orators and find fulfillment as diplomats or preachers and, if they make the Church their profession, their inner intensity can express itself in the spiritual fervor of the mystic or the thaumaturgy.

Article 11 - General - Sexuality.

  Scorpio is the symbol of sex and Scorpions are passionate lovers, the most sensually energetic of all the signs. For them union with the beloved is a sacrament, an "outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace." Their overriding urge in loving is to use their power to penetrate beyond themselves and to lose themselves sexually in their partners in an almost mystical ecstasy, thus discovering the meaning of that union which is greater than individuality and is a marriage of the spirit as well as of flesh. They are thus capable of the greatest heights of passionate transport, but debauchery and perversion are always dangers, and Scorpions can become sadistic monsters of sensuality and eroticism. 

  Their feelings are so intense that even when their love is of the highest and most idealistic kind, they are nevertheless frequently protagonists in tragic, even violent romances, "star-crossed lovers" indeed. Physically they tend to be of average height with strong, capable, thick set, hirsute bodies, bow legs and a short neck. Their skulls are dome shaped and their hair is coarse, thick and curly. Their faces are broad, square, with swarthy complexions, dark eyes, and aquiline noses. They have strong constitutions, resistant to disease. 

  Scorpio governs the pelvis and reproductive and urinary systems and its subjects are said to be prone to ailments of the liver and kidneys, stones and gravel in the bladder or genitals, and other genital ills such as priapism. Abscesses, boils, carbuncles, fistulas, piles, ruptures and ulcers may also affect the Scorpion.

Article 12 - An Analysis By Rob Hand -
(A none stereo typical view - excellent!)

Scorpio - (excerpt taken from Rob Hand's Horoscope Symbols.)

  Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs in the zodiac, and one of those with the worst reputation. While it does deal with serious issues, it does not deserve most of the negative things that have been said about it. In fact, it can be very positive.

  As for polarity with the opposite sign, Scorpio seems to have little to do with Taurus. In a way, Scorpio is more a prefiguration of Pisces. Scorpio is the first encounter with ego death. It completes the process begun in Libra, where the individual entered into a dialogue with another person while both individuals remained separate entities. In Scorpio, the two individuals merge into "the one" on an emotional level, and this is the first kind of ego death. While the above places Scorpio into the scheme of the signs it is, however, not the essence of the sign.

  The essence is transformation, and it is inherently mystical. This is not the mysticism of Christianity, which is primarily otherworldly, ascetic, and self-denying. It is a mysticism that sees the power of transformation at work in ordinary reality. Rather than deny the physical universe in order to transcend it, Scorpio will immerse itself in physicality and even drown in it in order to go beyond it.

  Scorpio is the first sign to be aware of the heights and depths of the universe. Feeling the relative nature of all things, it will freely declare there is no difference between good and evil, and be misunderstood as a result. Scorpio sees living as a series of deaths and resurrections, and instead of trying to avoid these experiences it will plunge into them headlong in order to experience the revivification that results.

  On an ordinary level, this manifests as Scorpio's fondness for living intensely. Nothing is to be done superficially. Obviously, Scorpio is a dramatic sign, one that loves emotion even while it appears pained by its own experiences. It is better for Scorpio to feel bad than to feel nothing.

  Concomitantly, Scorpio loves mysteries. It enjoys digging into the depths of any issue or person to find out what is going on inside. As a consequence, Scorpio is associated with investigation, research, and psychotherapy - the last, for two reasons, the probing of the psyche and the opportunity to assist in an individual's self-transformation.

  Whether in criticism or in envy, Scorpio is often called an extremely sexy sign. But if one is referring to the simple enjoyment of sex, Scorpio is not necessarily sexy. In fact, the sign is capable of denying itself sex altogether. Yet there is a relationship between Scorpio and sexuality. It is not the search for pleasure that brings a Scorpio to sex, it is the search for transcendence. The orgasm offers one of the few experiences of ego death and self-transcendence that is accessible to the ordinary human being. And it is characteristic of Scorpio that this is also one of the few experiences where ego death and supreme ego gratification are experienced at the same time. Scorpio does not feel the need to separate the two as much as other signs do. To a Scorpio, no matter how attractive and sexy the partner is in other respects, love that does not contain drama and emotional intensity will not endure.

  Although the above portrait is fundamentally true to the nature of the sign, it is not an especially accurate portrait of the typical Scorpio. The typical Scorpio often does not appear especially prepossessing or dramatic. More than most signs, Scorpios have a tendency to look ordinary, and they can be easily overlooked - that is until a confrontation. Then it is discovered that running close after Taurus, Scorpio is the second most fixed sign in the zodiac, and it is the only water sign that will fight. In fact, it will even enjoy fighting, for fighting is another way for the individual to enjoy a peak experience. War continues partly because it allows people to live at the height of their abilities. The Scorpio, especially, enjoys this. Like the other water signs, Scorpio is sensitive and easily hurt by others, but unlike Cancer and Pisces, Scorpio will fight, often fiercely, when hurt.

  Scorpio's outstanding difficulty with others is the height and depth of its understanding. Much of the emotion Scorpio feels is extremely primitive and does not lend itself to verbal communication and intellectual analysis. Also, much of its knowledge is not easily communicated because it is beyond most people's understanding. When Scorpios try to communicate what they see, understand, or feel, they are often badly misunderstood. They then tend to keep silent because the misunderstanding that results from silence is better than the misunderstanding that comes from failed communication. Less secure Scorpios may react to the misunderstanding by blaming themselves and concluding that they are rotten inside. Burdened by a sense of inward decay and corruption, they do not realize that the "evil" thoughts they harbor are quite often felt, if a bit less intensely, by others as well. From all this comes Scorpio's reputation for secrecy.

  All the above may result in Scorpio seeming self-involved and brooding. Because of the fixed nature of the sign, neither negative nor positive feelings die away rapidly. This is why many writers have described Scorpio as a sign that seeks revenge, one that will harbor long-term grudges. But Scorpio is also slow to anger. If others do not repeat hurts or add insult upon insult, Scorpio is no more vengeful or grudging than any other sign.

Article 14 - What Makes a Scorpio Tick? - Male/Female.

  Of all signs of the zodiac, Scorpio gets the worst publicity. In truth, Scorpios are neither sex-mad, vicious nor vengeful. They are deeply sensitive souls who are too perceptive for their own good. Most folk are prepared to live in a world that's fuzzy round the edges.

  Scorpios need things to be clear-cut. They must know where they stand and who they stand there with. The sting in the Scorpions tail is only used in self-defense. Their real weapon is a frank, piercing sense of humor. In our mixed up world, it's often the only way they can communicate. The Scorpio heart is a live volcano. When it erupts, few can withstand its force. Their ruling planet is Pluto, although before 1931 (when Pluto was discovered) Scorpio was considered to be ruled by Mars.

The Scorpio Man:

  The Scorpion is determined, shrewd, protective, jealous, and powerful. It is a sign prone to obsession, and the Scorpio man is not nonchalant about anything, from his career to his love life. Symbolized by the phoenix rising from the ashes, this bird aptly suggests.

  Scorpio's incredible ability to regenerate from seemingly disastrous situations. Much has been written about how sexy and mysterious Scorpio is. To him sex is very important, and it would be impossible for him to have a happy relationship without great sex. The Scorpio male is macho, a modern day 007: thrilling, strong, silent and handsome. 

 Your Challenge:

  One of the challenges of being in love with a Scorpio male is to get him to voice his innermost thoughts and feelings. Sometimes it is impossible know exactly what a Scorpio is thinking! He can be a temperamental, jealous lover, so watch your step. You will have to play by his rules or leave him. With this man, there are no shades of Grey.

How To Handle Him:

  Still waters run deep, and you will find him fiercely loyal and deeply passionate. This Pluto ruled-lover would never dream of divulging details of your private life together to others, and expects the same from you. Woe to the woman who strays from his bed to another lover, for he will never forgive her. The Scorpion's sting is never used casually, only when he feels threatened to the core, for its sting kills not only the victim but also the Scorpion itself. Scorpio will never suffer betrayal.

Things to do, gifts to buy:

  If you want to get your Scorpio lover a bit more relaxed and focused on you, try taking him to a small, cozy restaurant that serves solid manly food like a juicy steak and fries. Red wine will probably be his choice over champagne. The Scorpio male is no delicate gourmand. He would love a dark, rich chocolate mouse for dessert, if he likes sweets (some Scorpios do, some don't). Wear your little black dress or something in burgundy, his favorite color.

  Your Scorpio will want you to be uninhibited. Don't become offended if he suggests viewing a sex video together. He does not see pornography as degrading to women, but as research and stimulus for new things to do. Since this sign rules law enforcement, crime and punishment suggest he play policeman with you. Give him a gift box containing a blindfold and some handcuffs and you'll be all set. This man likes trying out a little light S&M playacting too so if you trust him, be co-operative if wants to put his naughty girl over his knee for a little spanking. This intense sign will insist on being the one in control, but surrendering to a Scorpio can be divine rapture.

The Scorpio Woman:

  The Scorpio woman has great charm, allure, and inner strength, and is able to overcome most any obstacle in life. She comes across as self-confident and self-possessed and men are drawn to her for that reason. There is a mysterious quality about the Scorpio woman, because she is intensely private, discrete and secretive. Soon she will learn everything about you, but later you will realize that she hasn't given you many details about herself - that's Scorpio's natural reticence.

  Finally, the operative word to best understand your Scorpio lover is "passion." One Scorpio once said to me that passion was the single most important ingredient in life, that is, to be passionate about one's loved ones, one's career, one's lifestyle, for without passion, what kind of life would we have in the end? Well said!

Your Challenge:

  Your Scorpio beauty is attracted to power, so if you have it, you are ahead of the game. Your other challenge will be that this lady has a mind of her own, so if you think you can tame her, forget it.

How To Handle Her:

  Her highly intuitive nature makes her a mind reader extraordinaire, so don't try to hide anything from her. If you are trying to impress her with power you don't have, her Pluto-ruled nature will sense it like a homing device. (Certainly you don't want to activate her seek and destroy mechanism.) In love and friendship, she is true-blue loyal and will expect the same from you. If you show her the slightest reason to distrust you, however, she will never forgive you. On the other hand, treat her well and she will reward you for the rest of your life. Home and family are regarded as sacred, and Scorpio will defend and support her man to the ends of the earth. Like Leo women, Scorpio women are into control, and with her magnetic, femme fatale powers, she will soon have the upper hand. After all, who could resist her famous Scorpion gaze, those memorable bedroom eyes?

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy:

  If you take your Scorpio beloved out for dinner, make it a private little dark rendezvous, overlooking water if possible or better yet, as a guest on a private yacht (preferably yours). The Scorpion woman will always be understated with her powerful sexuality, she doesn't need to flaunt it, it exudes naturally. In her dress, she is very careful about her accessories, buying only the finest shoes and handbags, and if she needs one, an elegant leather brief case. She knows these accessories punctuate her entire look and impart a feeling of true elegance. Get her quality things made out of leather (down, boy, not those things). If treating her to perfume, get her a modern oriental or something of musk and subtly sexual.

  While the Scorpio woman is always a lady in public, she loves being her man's fantasy woman in the bedroom. Buy her some new lingerie in of her most flattering tones: maroon, eggplant or a black. Elegant French and Italian imported lingerie will impress her so buy her a demi-cup push up bra, tiny, sheer G-string bikini and elegant garter belt, complete with a pair of black seamed stockings. She may also be amused and aroused by a lavishly illustrated photography book by Helmut Newton or Doris Kloster (see the Time Warner Electronic Publishing section of Pathfinder and look for ArtsLink to see Doris' work). If you get lucky, she may want to experiment a little by lap dancing for you and you alone.

  This sign rules detective work, so plan a mystery for her. She has a rich imagination and this should work whether you've known her a month or a decade. Tell her to meet you in the most elegant hotel bar in town. When you spot her, stand at the other end of the bar and have the waiter send over a glass of champagne and a note from you. By now the suggestive nature of your behavior will have the staff murmuring and staring and it will begin to turn her on tremendously. After the second or third drink, send her the key to your room in a small envelope. (Book their best suite ahead of time and stock it with roses and.) When she's pocketed the key, have her meet you by the elevator. Ride up alone, pushing her against the back wall of the elevator and tell her in great detail what you have planned. Show her the silk ribbons you've tucked into your breast pocket. Scorpio is intrigued by bondage. Although she will try her hardest not to show it, she will be aching for you to begin. She won't forget this mystery, and neither will you!

Article 15 - The Scorpio Female. (Seems True For Males Too).

(More) Scorpio female (Although it's equally true for most males) - (Added 13/6/97)

  Scorpio is often the most misunderstood sign of the zodiac. Since their sign is the sex sign people often mistake Scorpio's passion for sexual passion. Since it is said Scorpio is intense and honest, people often shy away from them because they are afraid they will be burned. Even if the Scorpio you happen to meet is a master of hiding her personality, look into her eyes and if you feel like she's reading your soul you can be pretty sure she's a Scorpion.

  Another clue is that she is a self-assured person. Scorpions know who they are and what they are and they can't be persuaded that the way they are isn't the right way. Because they are so self-assured Scorpions will give you unfailingly honest answers. If you want the naked truth ask your Scorpio friend. The answer may hurt but you know that you've been told the way it is.

  Don't think because of this that Scorpios are full of bad news and criticism. If they think you're good at something they'll be just as quick to tell you that. When you've made a friend with a Scorpio you've made one for life, unless you cross her down the road that is. She'll pay back every kindness you give her and if you watch carefully you'll catch her doing the same for other people she thinks deserving.

  But be careful, a Scorpio never forgets a wrongdoing. If they live up to the potential of their sign, they just write the person out of their life, but many Scorpios hold a grudge that can last a lifetime and will reciprocate any wrongdoing with double action. Though some Scorpio women don't look quite like this, you can bet that they will have some intriguing qualities. If she doesn't catch you with her eyes or her passionate manner, you are probably attracted to her will or charisma. Whatever a man could want, the Scorpion woman has got it, unless of course you want the average. The "average" Scorpio woman is far from average.

  If you can't handle this don't even bother to get involved with a Scorpio woman. She will burn you and you'll be hurting for a long time afterwards. She has to win, and doubly so when she feels she has been wronged.

  She won't choose her friends or lovers lightly; they have to measure up to her high standards. Once you are assured of her love don't worry that it will stray. As long as you are faithful and keep her happy a Scorpio will almost never betray you for physical promiscuity, so don't bother to get jealous; she will most likely shrug your protestations off as silly. On the other hand, don't even give her the suspicion that you are unfaithful to her.

  Scorpio women are hard to live with for most. They expect you to see them exactly as they see the world and most of us just don't do that. But don't despair, if you and a Scorpio hook up for life, you will have a wonderful adventure and the kind of love and devotion that many can only dream about.

Article 16 - Advice On The Scorpio.

  How to Identify a Scorpio: Don't even bother trying to identify a Scorpio. If a Scorpion is attracted to you, they will search you out. Your first hint will be the pair of hypnotic eyes that scrutinize you from head to toe. The Scorpio will then decide whether you will be accepted or rejected. Flirting is useless with a Scorpio. Scorpion's want and demand loyalty, devotion and true passion.

  How to Talk to a Scorpio: Be totally up front and honest when you meet a Scorpio, as they loathe deception. Treat them with the respect that is deserved and expected by a Scorpio and you will have a devoted friend and lover for life. In later years, when you tell the story of your relationship, you may think that you were instrumental in finding such a catch but truth be known, it was you who was caught by the Scorpio.

  Famous Scorpio Personalities: Grace Kelly, Boris Becker, Tatum O'Neal, Winona Ryder, Roseanne and Demi Moore.

  In health matters, Scorpio's are known for tremendous endurance and great powers of recovery. They take great pride in the amount of time they can go without sleep. When they do become ill, no patient is more trying or more bothersome than a Scorpio. They continually question and argue doctor's orders for they put no faith in anyone over themselves. Scorpio rules the genital area and infections in this area are usually above average. They are also prone to bladder trouble.

  What Makes You Happy: Give Scorpio a mystery to be solved, gossip to share, or praise for sexual prowess to make them smile. They enjoy the respect of loved ones and appreciate people who will listen to their opinions and applaud their successes. Scorpio's love planning surprise parties, sitting around a fire at Christmas with the family and trying exotic foods.

  Affirmation: Each day I am more patient and trusting with others.

  Meditation: The greatest battles are fought within ones self.

  Advice: Change is not always good or desired by others. Do not act hastily, find the right time. Listen carefully to the wishes of others. Learn to give up in order to get.

Article 18 - Sees Beneath The Scorpio Stereotype image.

  Scorpio is involved in a dynamic, which calls upon the most elemental forces in nature. A sign of great intensity, Scorpio sees into the depths of life's processes, for better or worse. In this stage of the zodiacal cycle, life must recreate itself. Out of the powerful interpenetration of darkness and light, new life will triumphantly emerge.

  The realm of procreation involves humans with fathomless instinctual forces which can be chaotic, uncivilized. And yet thus the species ensures its continuance, and individuals gain wisdom and insight. After the social niceties of Libra, we come to the naked psychological encounters of Scorpio, abandoning our polite personas and becoming inextricably intertwined with others. We allow their power to penetrate us. Scorpio's ruler is Pluto, and under his influence we come to understand Persephone, drawn into the underworld where elemental forces preside, and all the rules are different.

  Scorpio is a deeply self-contained sign, with a calm exterior, a penetrating gaze, and a cool yet compassionate manner. The inner workings of Scorpio are liable to remain secret until they are ready to reveal them to you. Eventually, however, Scorpio needs to probe the depths of their own and others' psychological processes with those they trust. They may draw you into a discussion of your deepest, darkest secrets before you know it, for Scorpio is not shocked by human nature, and they are forever studying its manifestations. Scorpio has a false reputation for being sexually excessive. While they need to experience surrender and transcendence, unless they are power-hungry they are no philanderers. For like the other water signs, Scorpio is vulnerable, within their tough psychological armor.

  Scorpio is involved with power in a fashion similar to Taurus. Yet where Taurus works through the material plane, Scorpio sees beyond appearances and encounters their fears and power issues directly. Very elemental energies are at work in Scorpio, and they are almost driven to discover the full extent of them at certain times in their life. They may find self-destructive, manipulative, or egotistical tendencies in themselves (or others, whom they examine with their X-ray vision). Scorpio seems to face a choice: They either become a Faustian character, exchanging their soul for an amoral power trip, or they gain true wisdom, and soars calmly in the heights, having mastered themselves.

  Death and rebirth, degeneration and regeneration - these are the themes that Scorpio will encounter. Scorpio ideally learns how to regenerate and purify themselves, and may have to recreate their life or selves several times over in the process. Scorpios are adept healers and counselors once they have confronted their own depths, and possess a great capacity to help and advise others. Though they may occasionally be gloomy, it is inspiring to see Scorpio perform their inner alchemy, and bring themselves, time and again from the darkness into the light.

  Sometimes-paradoxical questions, which will be important to Scorpio's long-term development, are:

  "How can I acknowledge the extent of my powers without being controlled by them or   controlling others?"

  "How can I overcome my emotional or psychological darkness in order to bring light to the world?"

  "How can I align myself with the forces of "coming to be and passing away?"

More about Scorpio: General

  Symbols: The Scorpion, Eagle, Serpent, Phoenix, Dove.
  Birthstones: Topaz, Opal.
  Lucky Numbers: 8, 17, 26, 35, 44, 53.
  Colors: Red, Crimson, Maroon.
  Compatible signs: Capricorn, Pisces, Cancer, Virgo.

  Dates: Oct. 24 - Nov. 21.

  According to the ancients, there are many variations of Homo Scorpius. This is testimonial to your well-recognized complexity. The scorpion symbolizes a hotheaded warrior who is violently passionate, bluntly sarcastic, egotistical, controlling and manipulative. The soaring eagle symbolizes the calm but intense, focused, determined, intuitive and perceptive Scorpio who often develops healing, clairvoyant, and counseling abilities. The sacred serpent, an Egyptian emblem of cosmic wisdom, was grounded in earthly reality, but penetrated the higher levels of consciousness. The serpent periodically sheds outworn habits, beliefs, and illusions to facilitate growth through rebirth. The phoenix is the confident, courageous, positive transformer that transcends the personal ego. The sympathetic, generous dove, a natural healer, is infused with love, which it transmits to others.Your keyword is TRANSFORMATION.

  You will likely experience all the traits of your sign's varied symbols to some extent through the psychological death and regeneration process. Contrasts and extremes of virtue and vice are imbedded in every Scorpio, waiting for employment or transcendence. It can be a difficult journey or a blissful one depending on your choices. There's no middle-of-the-road playing around with you. Your feelings are very strong and unyielding, and you can be extremely sensitive and willful. It would be good for you to work at being co-operative.

More about Scorpio: Love.

  You are secretive and don't establish bonds until you're sure of others' trustworthiness. Then, you loosen up and reveal your keen insight and fine sense of humor. You approach love emotionally and dream of fairy tale romance. You want to be with someone who's artistic, spiritual, inspiring, helpful, peaceful, idealistic, refined and perceptive. You might meet your type in the theater, museums, nightclubs, hospitals, prisons, chemical labs, spiritualistic churches, at sea, the beach, the pool, dance events, aquariums, gas stations, film or photography studios, retreats, or even in shoe stores.

More about Scorpio: Work.

  You can be a good organizer and leader, because you enjoy pioneering new projects, have the foresight to make long-range plans and can direct them to the finish. Patience, tolerance and compassion are the keys to your success. You could find satisfying work in the martial arts, police force, armed forces, surgery, dentistry, alternative healing, psychic counseling, psychiatry and mechanics. Working in the entertainment industry could provide an excellent outlet for your creative or artistic abilities.

More about Scorpio: Health.

  Inner conflict can get you down psychologically and physically. If you suppress upsetting personal issues, they can build up and become toxic to your psyche and body. That could affect your reproductive organs, digestive system and head area, including the eyes and sinuses. Find outlets to release tension and renew your spirit. Music, dance, exercise, yoga, meditation, acupuncture and nature visits, especially to the ocean, can help alleviate internal chaos and restore your physical equilibrium. When you feel like withdrawing, some emotional turmoil deep within probably needs to be addressed and worked out of your system. It may be time to shed your skin.
