Astrology Sun Signs: Scorpio the Mysterious
Scorpio the Mysterious
Scorpios have played a big part in my life. One of my best and most valued friends is a Scorpio. I have married two of them - including my current (and hopefully last) husband. I have always been drawn to Scorpios - male or female. Of course, I am a Pisces so that is not surprising.
Scorpios can be fascinating and frustrating, irresistible and exhausting and undoubtedly the hardest sign to truly know in the zodiac. Scorpios live in the murky underworld and only emerge when they choose to do so. Unlike most signs, Scorpio actually has three symbols - the snake, the scorpion and the eagle. It is said that the scorpion snake bites others, the scorpion stings himself and the eagle rises above it all. I have known all three types of Scorpios in my lifetime and have come to the conclusion that they represent both the best and the worst of human nature.
Scorpio Core Personality Traits
Scorpios are known for their determination and resourcefulness. Once set on a path nothing, and I mean nothing, will deter them. They are loyal once they have determined that someone is worthy of that loyalty. Loyalty to a Scorpio literally means to the death in most cases and therefore they are highly selective in who they place that loyalty.
Earning a Scorpio's trust is no small feat but once you have it you can count on it under any circumstances. Scorpios are passionate and emotional, although only those within the inner-circle will see the emotional side of a Scorpio. The old saying "still waters run deep" was certainly referring to a Scorpio. They love deeply and hate deeply. There is no grey area with a Scorpio.
With all of that passion, Scorpios also have a strong jealous streak. They are extremely suspicious by nature causing them to find conspiracies around every corner. Vengeance is another negative Scorpio trait. If slighted-much less hurt-a Scorpio will never forget and will most likely strike back when least expected. Scorpios are also obsessive by nature.
While this can be used in a positive way, it can also lead to a variety of addictions including drugs or alcohol, sex or the occult. Secrecy is probably the biggest hallmark of a Sun Sign Scorpio. No matter how long you know one, or how well you think you know them, they will always harbor a secret or two -it's just their nature.
While all children are affecting by their early home-life and environment, your Scorpio child can be particularly vulnerable. Because a Scorpio's basic nature is to mistrust everyone and be suspicious of everything, it is particularly important to make your Scorpio child feel loved and secure. While your Scorpio child may not appear highly emotional he/she is, without a doubt.
Don't take your Scorpio child at face value. Take the time to listen to him/her and really find out what's going on inside his/her head. Your Scorpio child may be very needy, but if you can cater to those needs she will eventually start to believe that you really love her and are not going to abandon her. Do not lie to your Scorpio child - about anything. First, he will probably know you are lying and second you will ruin your chance at gaining his trust. All children need constructive outlets, but a Scorpio child may be more in need than most. Without something positive to focus her obsessive mind on she may turn to a negative obsession.
Also, pay particular attention to your Scorpio child as he reaches puberty as sex, drugs and all things dark will start calling him. Again, talk to him - truthfully - about these subjects as I assure you if you do not he will find the answers himself elsewhere.
A Scorpio friend is a friend for life. As mentioned earlier, Scorpios do not trust easily nor do they offer their loyalty quickly. If you have a Scorpio that you can truly call a friend then you can count on them to be there for you when everyone else went running for the hills. They do not turn their backs on a friend.
On the other hand, if you want someone to commiserate with you when you have done something stupid, don't count on a Scorpio. They will not placate you. If you want an honest opinion - ask your Scorpio friend. If you just want a shoulder to cry on - call someone else.
Your Sun Sign Scorpio boss will be a harsh taskmaster. She will expect you to do your job in a timely manner and with precision. A Scorpio boss will not accept excuses - for anything. Don't call in sick unless you are on your deathbed - with a doctor's excuse.
Don't show up late for work or ask to leave early and by all means don't be caught playing games on your computer or chatting on the phone during work hours. If, however, your Scorpio boss is pleased with your performance, you will be rewarded and he will not abandon you when times get tough or he is offered another opportunity.
A Scorpio employee needs direction but not interference. Scorpios flourish when they are allowed to use their natural research and investigation skills. They are intuitive and naturally skeptical so anything in law enforcement suits them. Scorpios don't handle situations where there is a lot of gray area well so their work expectations should be clear.
Do not, however, hover over them. Their suspicious nature will kick in and they will get nothing done! Do not expect your Scorpio employee to be particularly social - in fact she may appear standoffish. Don't take it personally - he is just not a social animal!
I have spent, collectively, 20 years in a relationship with one Scorpio or the other. Two of those in a marriage - including my current husband. Needless to say I am apparently destined to be with a Scorpio. From a relationship perspective, they are hard to resist and even harder to forget. They are, however, like playing with fire. Most of them will even tell you that before you start a relationship with them. Remember that warning when you later question whether or not you need your head examined!
This is not to infer that life with a Scorpio is unhappy - just complicated sometimes. On the one hand, you always know where you stand - they are brutally honest. If you are emotional (as I am with my Pisces Sun) be prepared to get your feelings hurt. You know, however, that when they give you a compliment or tell you they love you it is the real deal. On the other hand, your Scorpio may suffer from serious mood swings, insane bouts of jealousy and moments when his proverbial foot goes down and nothing will change his mind.
They are fiercely loyal partners that will stick by you to the end. When I say loyal, I mean emotionally loyal - not necessary sexually loyal. Sex, to a Scorpio, is like food or water - a necessity. If they are not getting enough of it at home they may look elsewhere. They will not, however, have an affair as a rule in the emotional sense of that word. They are not romantic but they are sentimental. I think my husband has saved every card I have ever given him as well as our daughter's first shoes, her first birthday candle and an assortment of other mementos that even I never thought to save.
As a parent, your Scorpio will be strict but loving. They show their love and commitment by deeds more than gifts and words. You can count on your Sun Sign Scorpio to be dependable, hard working and stable. Mine is my rock.
Sex, for a Sun Sign Scorpio, is an obsession. Scorpio rules the sex organs and every Scorpio I have known stays true to that! They are inherently sexual creatures. They simply exude sex - raw sex - from every pore. They are not flashy, and most are completely unaware of their sex appeal. Both the male and female Scorpion is generally irresistible at first glance.
They may not be conventionally beautiful or handsome but there is something about them that draws people in. Sex with a Scorpio is an event. They will have an interest in anything different, unusual or that tends toward the dark side of sex. If you do not have an adventurous nature steer clear of a Scorpio. Sex can become an obsession for a Scorpio as they feel the need to push the limits. It can be like a drug to them.
They are, however, very giving and pleasing their partner is frequently more important to them than their own pleasure. You will need to remember how important sex is to a Scorpio lover, but if you do you will find that they will do everything in their power to make you happy.
