Scorpio Horoscope- The Scorpion
October 24th to November 22nd
The horoscope Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac and is ruled by both planets Pluto and Mars. Pluto is known as the planet of permanent change and transformation (life cycles of birth and death), sex, and regeneration while Mars represents our energy drive, sexual drive, courage, and our pioneering spirit.
It is the second of the three water signs and is ruled by the First House, which is the House Of The Self, and it symbolizes how we project ourselves to the world. Scorpio is also ruled by the Eighth House, the House of Spirituality and Death, and it symbolizes all things metaphysical and how we relate to material losses, with death being the ultimate loss. It also describes how we commit and bond with our partner on both a sexual and emotional level. Scorpio is a fixed sign which means in the face of adversity they are strong and persevere. It is also the sign of endurance and intensity. Scorpions have a deep empathy with human nature. More US presidents have been born under this sign than any other.
One symbol of Scorpio is the mythological bird called the Phoenix. This amazing bird could recreate and reproduce itself by searching for a fire that was usually in a religious temple and fly into the fire where it would be consumed. It would then rise up and was transformed into a new bird. Transformation is what Scorpio is all about– in their lives, their relationships and even in their minds.

Scorpio Traits and Scorpio Personality
Their inherent ability in understanding the secrets of life and death, the constant transformation from being born, growing old and dying, is something they are not afraid of. They accept the cycles of birth and death. They are the most passionate and intense sign of the zodiac and they represent spiritual rebirth.
Scorpios are basically introverted and secretive and like Leos, want to be stars and leaders, but, unlike the extroverted Lions, Scorpions prefer reaching their goals discreetly.
While Scorpions will appear tranquil and calm, beneath that exterior lies a brewing storm that could explode at any moment. Inside though they are very sensitive and emotional. Some have penetrating eyes and stares that appear to look right through you, making some people very uncomfortable under this gaze.
Their persistance can make this sign intimidating and it doesn’t help one bit that they are blunt when you ask their opinion. Be prepared for the harsh truth. They do not like to give insincere flattery. They are fiercely loyal to their friends and it’s very few that will make sacrifices for friends like Scorpio will. They have long memories and will never forget an act of kindness towards them nor will they forget a disservice or injury. They can be very vindictive and are capable of waiting years to get even. They not only get even but they want to defeat and destroy their enemies so that they will never try to hurt them again. They are too demanding and unforgiving towards others.
They are born with an intuitive sense giving them an innate ability to see other peoples weaknesses. Their imagination, analytical ability, intuition and solid reasoning capabilities make this sign capable of immeasurable intelligence. Scorpions are intense about everything in their lives and especially all aspects concerning the transformation of life and death.
They fear revealing too much about themselves and will stay away from center stage. Their intense curiosity about the dark mysteries of life can lead them into a descent of decadence and be just as capable of going the extreme opposite in helping mankind.
The power of money is strong for Scorpios and they see this as control so they must be careful not to get too materialistic. To them money is a transforming power and could view it as money controls the world.
Scorpios are at their best in professions that use analysis, investigation, scrutiny, and probing making them naturals in police work, intelligence and counterintelligence.
They like structured and committed relationships. They are reticent about marriage but once they commit they tend to be faithful partners. They are jealous and possessive with both of these traits being so intense they can become violent. It is also the sign of sex and sensuality and Scorpios are the most passionate and sensual of the zodiac. Their passion gives them feelings so intense they ” want to lose themselves sexually in their partners in an almost mystical ecstasy giving them a marriage of the spirit as well as the flesh.”
Because they are so intense they are usually attracted to people who are easy going, friendly and loyal to them.
