Astrology: Scorpio Traits and Characteristics


Scorpio

Scorpio, the 8th sign of the zodiac, is a water sign. It has a powerful, dualistic nature. It is the aspect of water which exerts extreme pressure like ice or deep water, and Scorpio has strong will-power and clings tenaciously to its beliefs which are fired by a profound strength of feeling. It is also impenetrable, intuitively perceptive and charismatic.

Scorpio rules the genitals and sexuality, and Scorpions have an intense, passionate nature. They get obsessive about what they are doing which sometimes blinkers them to the other side of their nature - the high-flying eagle. With an intuitive grasp of the big picture, this side can, like the snake, swoop silently, as if out of nowhere, and kill it's prey.

Scorpio has an uncanny way of getting to the nitty gritty and sizing up a person or a situation - deftly picking out exactly that part which others overlook. A Scorpio can pin you with that notorious, penetrating gaze and see right into your soul, or, if not, at least into that secret you were hoping to keep to yourself. A Scorpio native won't necessarily be able to verbalize what is perceived, but will have a strong gut-reaction which hit's the nail on the head.

The sign is ruled by the planet Pluto, which is the principle of death and rebirth, and Scorpions are very good at rising, Phoenix-like from the ashes of the past. They are masters of rehabilitation, and regeneration. Like the snake who periodically sheds it's skin, or the eagle who moults it's feathers, the Scorpio personality can renovate a house, re-establish a business, rehabilitate others as their detective-like perception and intuition helps them to pierce through the surface level of things and get a key insight into the innate value or potential of something or someone.

They are usually fixed in their affections and feel things intensely and if you get on the wrong side of a Scorpion having a bad day, run for cover, as they are unerring with their sting and know just where your emotional weak-spot is.

Careers like psychoanalysis, surgery, research, renovation, tearing down whole systems and installing new ones, allows them to get beneath the surface and this resonates with the principle of Scorpio. Anything occult or psychic which lets them use their gut-based knowing, strong willpower and focused intent fits well with the character of this sign.
