People born under the Zodiac Sign Scorpio (Vrishchika), the eighth Sign in the Zodiac calendar, are represented by the Scorpion or the Phoenix or even the Eagle, in some literature. Serious, fearless, stubborn at times, intense and passionate, the Scorpio-born are usually not to be taken lightly. They live life on their own terms and like to believe that they are in ultimate control of their destiny. Sceptics to the core, they guard their secrets well. Water Signs that they are, they are emotional and sensitive, though they are least likely to bare their inner demons to anyone.
The Scorpio are serious in their mission to learn about the others: they will concentrate on the essential questions, gleaning the secrets that lie within, travelling in a world of black and white, probably with a little use of grey. Most Scorpios have an insatiable curiosity, which fuels their investigative spirits. These people love to probe, and know how to get to the bottom of things. And in this, their keen sense of intuition certainly helps. Most Scorpios possess an overwhelming ability to strip away all veneer to get to the core of any issue. They may shamelessly promote their agenda, and ensure, come what may, that the things go forward their way. This can be often overbearing and exhausting for the others and self-destructive for the Scorpio themselves.
Not the ones to shy away from working hard, they can become extremely closed and withdrawn if they feel hurt. They don’t like to be probed. Their complex and secretive nature makes them suspicious, and they clam up at the slightest hint of betrayal or careful enquiry. At the same time, the Scorpio can also be surprisingly resourceful. Besides, they are very passionate and intense in everything they do, which inspires fear or awe in others.
On a personal level, the Scorpios can be very loyal friends. Yet, at the same time, they also have the potential to become very dangerous enemies. The desire to avenge, take revenge and get even runs deep in them – and their hypnotic stare and vital force can overwhelm those around them. Intense, dominating, ruthless and committed, then Scorpios are attuned to lead the battle of life with their keen intellect, patience and creativity. Definitely not gregarious, generous or ready-to-please types, Scorpios are, however, genuine and are often above petty gains; though this does not not necessarily include conspiracy and manipulation. If such a need arises, they will devote considerable time and energy to develop strategies and plot revenge against the enemies.
These otherwise energetic and passionate souls move with a keen sense of purpose and possess an inner strength and capacity to endure hardships. They are capable of making good of given opportunities and convert today’s loss into tomorrow’s victory. But, their innate masochism may propel them to destroy even something that they may have nurtured with great care and love. Such is the irony of a Scorpio’s psyche! Though, they can easily change course if it suits them better, their dynamic, fascinating and often mysterious face draws many towards them.
In love, the Scorpio are intense and passionate, extremely hard to forget. Attuned so much to the physical and emotional aspect of love, they instinctively know what their partners want. Sweeping many off with magnetic charm they seldom distinguish between a passing fancy and true love – involvement is always a passionate deal with the Scorpio-born. Scorpio-Scorpio, Scoprio-Cancer, Scorpio-Pisces and Scorpio-Taurus make very good life partners. To know how compatible a Scorpio may be with other Sign, check out Scorpio Compatibility.
