(24rd October to 22nd November)
General description: On or around October 23 every year, the Sun enters Scorpio and transits through it till November 21. The Scorpio-born are not shy, but they can become extremely withdrawn if they feel hurt. However, the Scorpio are intense, passionate individuals and certainly not to be taken lightly. Those who make the mistake of messing up with them will have to run for safety, if the Scorpios decide to get even. Often secretive and vengeful, they don’t forgive and forget easily.
