and it is no wonder Scorpios have a reputation for being mysterious, complex and intense. They are ruled by planet Pluto (Although being the furthest, Pluto has many secrets within and beyond the kuiper belt) which governs sex, life, death, transformation and power. Consider the force that results from splitting an atom to solving the true nature of quantum, and you will understand power, will, and intense emotions Scorpios possess. Scorpio seeks to harness desire through will. Consequently, a Scorpio is not fond of weakness in himself, nor in others.
Because the Scorpio feels things so intensely, they appear to be extremely private, and almost secretive. Their reputation for secrecy, however, is born more out of the difficulty the have articulating their emotions than a wish to keep them to themselves. However, when a Scorpio does speak, others should watch out, for they speak the absolute truth, whether it be good or bad. A Scorpio will remain silent rather than water down their opinions with feelings. Had a Scorpio ever revealed a secret to another, he or she had better not reveal him, such a betrayal will never be forgotten.
Scorpios rarely get mad, but they do get even. Scorpio's key words are, "I create", linking their artistry to the reproductive organs, the body part that Scorpio rules. Scorpios are linked to creativity and sex as well as death. The doorway between the living and the dead. Some people argue that "I desire" is the motto of Scorpio, reflecting the passion that drives this sign, for if Scorpios draw from their considerable arsenal of power, they can, will, and do accomplish great things. Because they have such an incredible drive, they usually invest themselves fully in whatever project, career, cause, or person they pursue. Because they possess such an incredible endurance, they always stay with whatever or whoever they have committed themselves to until the end, no matter how hopeless the circumstances. Because of this, it is vital that the Scorpio consider any serious course of action or relationship before getting involved. Managerial and executive positions often answer the Scorpio's innate desire for control, it also suits their uncanny ability to understand the motivations of others.
With their inquisitive minds and their ability to get straight to the heart of any matter, they make fine therapists, researchers, consultants, and detectives. Although they tend to be loners, Scorpios need to work in a nurturing environment. Critical, restrictive surroundings strike the very heart of their greatest fears.The Scorpio responds best when given the opportunity to focus on a specific area of responsibility, left alone to do their work, and always shown appreciation. And as you may well know, a pat on the back goes a long way with a Scorpio, who will return the praise ten fold in stellar performance. As for love and romance, Scorpio has long been typecast as the sexual sign of the zodiacs. Certainly those born under the sign are usually very magnetic, have a strong physical presence and penetrating eyes, and are very skilled lovers, paying attention to detail. However, sex alone will never be enough to satisfy an evolved Scorpio.
The Scorpio desires unconditional love and will ardently pursue his heart's desires. Scorpio's deeply emotional nature causes him to become extremely attached to loved ones, and this attachment often manifests itself as jealousy and possessiveness. Scorpios are capable of profound love and are very committed to a relationship once they choose a partner, but this usually doesn't occur until later in their lives. Not only are Scorpios capable of tremendous love, they make great workers for a cause, for their passion motivates others to contribute their efforts also. Scorpios have the capacity to transform not only themselves and those they love, but society in general when we put our considerable drive to work for the good of others. Charity is another expression of our ability to love on a more spiritual level. Make no mistake about it, the complex Scorpio takes others to the heights and depths of their souls. Like every astrological sign, Scorpio has positive and negative attributes and the ability to choose which qualities to express. The typical Scorpio must remember that if he doesn't act according to his better qualities, others will view him as manipulative, self-serving, and power-hungry. If, however, we must learn to harness our tremendous feelings and healing power in order to better ourselves and in order to be greatly fulfilled.
Anyone who knows a Scorpio, knows that he goes through periods of personal upheaval. The Scorpios compatibility with the other signs is shown easiest by looking at nature for examples. In nature, some elements are more compatible and blend more easily than others, like fire and air, and earth and water, the same holds true in astrology. Therefore, some signs naturally interact more harmoniously than others. The following information describes how Scorpio tends to relate to the other signs. It shows the potential strengths and weaknesses of a relationship between two signs. These are only examples and a broad guideline, in the final analysis, the choices you make are yours. As a water sign, Scorpio is most compatible with other water signs, Cancer and Pisces. The natural rapport of the water signs is due to their many intellectual and emotional similarities. The earth signs Virgo and Capricorn make very suitable partners for the Scorpio also. Although Taurus is also an earth sign, it is Scorpio's polar opposite in the zodiac, so the relationship would be a bit more challenging than one with one of the other earth signs. In nature, "water nourishes earth, and earth gives water form", and the same holds true in astrology. This is the reason earth and water signs are basically compatible. The fire signs, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, represent less suitable candidates for Scorpio because of their elemental differences. The fire and water signs are both feeling-oriented, but they express themselves quite differently. Water can dampen fire's enthusiasm, while fire can prove to be to much for water. Fire and water can form a steamy, combustible combination, but odds are that the relationship will be stormy than serene. The air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, are perhaps the least suitable sign for Scorpio because air and water signs are so functionally different. Social, changeable, and prone to flights of fancy, the air signs may be too outgoing and inconsistent for intense and private Scorpio. Scorpio needs a partner who can ultimately smooth and/or provide a stabilizing influence.
