Scorpio, the scorpion… the sign of transformation … arrives in the middle of autumn when the leaves begin to change from green to the beautiful shades of orange, red, yellow and auburn. The eighth sign of the zodiac, Scorpio rules over death, arriving just in time to witness the trees becoming bare, naked and exposed … appearing to die. Scorpio is the sign of transformation, change and death, as well as the sign of sex and intimacy. A fixed water sign, Scorpio is overwhelmingly stubborn and intensely emotional. Of all of the water signs they are the most determined and forceful.
Scorpio’s are considered one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. The sign of extremes, Scorpio is variously described as independent, yet clingy, powerful, yet weak, cold, yet passionate. They are a bundle of contradictions.
Although Scorpio have a pretty bad reputation, it is easy to see how people are inclined to fear them, simply because they do not understand them. Actually Scorpios are pros at concealment, and at hiding what is occurring within them. For this reason it will take time to really get to know each Scorpio.
The strength of the Scorpio is hidden in depth and they can live on my levels. On the surface, the Scorpio appears calm, cool, and impassive, sometimes even unapproachable … yet their are turbulent passions and boiling waters underneath, often invisible to others. If you look into their eyes however, you will see an intensity at times, yet they are able to conceal stirred emotions at will, presenting a calm presence.
A strong, silent type with a magnetic aura, Scorpios are known to always have a hidden agenda and it is difficult to tell what they are planning.
This sign has a well controlled nature. For them to be out of control is to be in psychic danger. When in control, according to the Scorpion, things are safe. The unevolved Scorpio tries to control people and is highly manipulative.
There exists three levels of Scorpio, the sign of transformation, as they are a symbol of the change within life and within themselves. This is the only sign of the zodiac that has three different signs to represent it … the scorpion with the poisonous tail, the eagle (a higher manifestation of a Scorpio) and the phoenix which has risen from the ashes of the fire. Also the serpent has been seen as one of the three as well.
The magic of Scorpio is in the transformation effect that they have. Often this transformation can be felt simply by having a Scorpio near for awhile, as a neighbor, co-worker, lover, etc.
Scorpios are private and secretive. They do not share their feelings openly and are selective when it comes to friendships. For the Scorpio quality weighs more than quantity. They are fiercely loyal friends, capable of great sacrifice for someone they care about. However if a friend should betray the Scorpio, they will never forget it. Those born under this sign have excellent memories. They never forget a kindness or an injury and will remember for the rest of their life. They often try to repay an act of kindness and get even for a betrayal or even a minor injury, a weakness that the more evolved Scorpio has learned to omit from their behavior.
Although Scorpios are secretive, they are quick to discover much about others, without the person ever saying a word. Their intuition is very strong and they are naturally great detectives, spies and investigators. They can sense the truth and figure things out quickly, in an almost effortless way. The things that they do not know they will pry out of people. Scorpios excel at research, delving deep into secrets to unveil the source of any problem and exposing the true essence behind any phenomenon.
Scorpios are fierce competitors, although they often conceal this from others. They love to win … need to win and often are compelled to do so at all costs.
Immense focus, dedication, determination and integrity are what Scorpio is all about. Everything that they do is emotionally charged, an ingredient to magic and magnetism. Often their intensity is so strong that it is mistaken for anger. They want to go deep into everything, fascinated by the psychology and why people do what they do. They often dwell in the occult, the idea and subject of death, sex and magic of all forms.
