Scorpio Zodiac Sign Introduction
Depending on your own individual chart, these people can be the most difficult to truly get along with, for Scorpios possess a mixture of traits that make them extremely complex beings. And because Scorpio is ruled by the most malevolent of the planets – Pluto – it shares some of the darker sides of life. Perhaps this is why some astrologers describe Scorpio as being the most powerful of all the signs, for Pluto is all about power. Other Pluto/Scorpio traits include secrecy, jealousy and possessiveness, sex and passion, being unforgiving, and obsession. All this probably paints a rather gloomy picture of Scorpios, which is certainly not the case in general, it is just that many of these darker issues can lie lurking beneath the surface of an otherwise friendly, outgoing Scorpio – the sting in the tail.
The power side to all this may simply show itself in a fixed stubbornness that will not budge to adapt in situations. On the other hand, many Scorpios use the inherent power capabilities to get to the top in their respective fields. Where they can fall down however is, being a water sign, emotions often rule rather than logic. They can employ great charm but also can be hard and demanding when it suits them.

The subject they are most famous for is passion. I must say, that although this aspect is inherent in their makeup, it does depend on their Mars and Venus placements to a large extent as to how passionate they will be, and whether they live up to this astrological myth.
Pluto transforms things, bringing new from old, and this is reflected by Scorpios often experiencing life indefinite chapters, situations, and people ever-changing. They are very curious and have an innate talent for getting to the bottom of things.

About Scorpio Personality
Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac and is symbolized by the Scorpion. Scorpios symbol or glyph represents the scorpion’s sting or the stylized motion of this sign’s characteristically intense and profound penetration into depth. The Sun is in Scorpio from around 23 October until around 22 November each year. Scorpio is classified as being of the negative polarity (passive and receptive), of the water element (emotional, sensitive, and intuitive), and of the fixed quality (intense, steadfast, and resistant to change).
Scorpio has a secretive and introspective yet intense, penetrating and passionate attitude, with an urge to unearth, disclose, remove outer masks, identify with the source and transform what it finds. The characteristic Scorpio type has an intensity of expression, thinking and feeling that springs from an inner depth. Scorpio is extremely purposeful and has tremendous strength of will and passionate and penetrating power of conviction. Though not always evident yet it is there, subtly concealed like the scorpion or the snake, a potent power restrained until ready to strike. In Scorpio, there is a power-house of deep energy that needs to be harnessed constructively.
This is the fundamental life force that is intimately and mystically involved with the regenerative process through which we were originally transformed from a single cell, through which we ourselves re-create life in sex, and through which we must face the ultimate transformation of death. Pluto rules Scorpio and represents this primal life force, which can be sublimated in mystical union. This is why Scorpio is sometimes represented by an eagle, symbolizing the rising above the lower expressions of this vital life energy. Scorpio can be identified with manifestations of this fundamental life force on different levels; in the intense and one-pointed spiritual fervor of the mystic, the self-control of the surgeon, the dangerous brutality of the underworld, or the intense, passionate and consummating joy of sexual union.
Scorpio can be too secretive, suspicious, brooding, jealous, and resentful, and may allow its deep energy to be expressed in non-constructive, vindictive, and even cruel and destructive ways.
Physically Scorpio rules the reproductive organs, the genitals, bladder, urethra, and rectum. Scorpio is especially associated with, or “ruled” by, the planet Pluto.
Let’s Break down Scorpios’ Personalities into the Decans
Scorpio 1st decan – October 23rd to November 1st – Ruler Mars (Double Scorpio)
A very powerful manifestation of Scorpio. They are more than capable of figuring out someone’s personality instantly. This would be the truest form of Scorpio, the type that if somebody hurts them they’ll seek revenge. Can be a very loyal ally, who will be there for family and friends long after everyone has left. Gifted with tremendous amounts of energy and willpower.
Scorpio 2nd decan – November 2nd to 11th – Ruler Neptune (Scorpio + Pisces Influence)
A more understanding, less vengeful type of Scorpio. This decan may be more forgiving, but the famous stinger is always at the ready just in case. A curious mind with a built-in lie detector, this Scorpion can ferret out others’ secrets without even trying. Possessing a dreamy Pisces mix keeps this type more mellow.
Scorpio 3rd decan – November 12 to 21 – Moon ruler (Scorpio + Cancer Influence)
A more moody version of Scorpio. Whether real or imagined, this type is quick to react to outside stimuli. They are also surprisingly nurturing for such an intense sign. They quickly sense others’ moods and attitudes. Family and home are major areas of life that are staunchly protected from prying eyes or unwelcome intruders
Good Side of Scorpio
They have an easy time adapting, coping, and dealing with any changes in their lives. It is almost like they are always willing to go with the flow.
They are very secretive, which makes it easier for them to keep information private. So if you have a secret you want to tell them, it’s safe.
It is part of their nature to hide their true emotions and feelings from other people. Due to this, they appear to be kinder than they actually are.
They are usually very rational and level-headed. They don’t get distracted easily by outrageous ideas.
They could influence and attract people to their way of thinking. If given the opportunity, they will do whatever it takes to win people over.
However, when it comes to their conversations, sometimes they can stray from the topic and go in another direction, but do so without losing sight of the main point.
The ability to multitask comes naturally to them.
It is possible for them to feel and experience the emotions of others under certain circumstances.
They can dedicate all their attention to one project until it’s done. They can exclude the outside world if it occupies their attention at the time.
Bad Side of Scorpio
There are times when they can be easily tricked. Sometimes they are quick to take the bait.
They act or show ruthlessness, malice, and viciousness when they hate somebody. It’s not uncommon for them to use underhanded tactics and be sneaky.
It’s possible for them to intentionally hurt their loved ones or friends.
They can appear rude and disrespectful. Sometimes they’re impulsive and don’t think before acting.
Unfortunately, sometimes they tend to be possessive, vindictive, and jealous.
Scorpio Careers and Work
They are driven, intense, and accomplished people in terms of their careers and work-life. They seem to be able to shut out everything, all distractions, and interruptions. When they do not have those distractions, they can concentrate on their work with laser-like precision. Often curious by nature, they are often fascinated and drawn to mysteries. You would certainly not want to be in a position where you would be interrogated or questioned by these people. That’s because they are not only imposing and downright intimidating, but they are also intuitive people who can get straight to the point.
The best jobs for them are as follows
Given their inquisitive nature, being a detective is an obvious career choice for them. Their ability to shut out distractions and interruptions would make them excellent lawyers since they can focus on the matter at hand. They would be outstanding educators and teachers, too. They would make good scientists, doctors, and surgeons because of their curiosity.

Constellation of Scorpio
The 8th zodiacal constellation is Scorpius, the scorpion. Notice that the name of the constellation is Scorpius and not Scorpio. This is a faint reminder that astrology and astronomy are not the same. Scorpius is a large constellation and lies close to the Milky Way, and puts us in a direction close to the center of our galaxy.
There are a few mythological stories behind the great Scorpion, however, the most notable is the scorpion’s defeat over the great Hunter, Orion. Orion had become completely infatuated with the Greek goddess Artemis, so much so that he attempted to rape her. Artemis then sent the Scorpion to spring from the Earth, which resulted in the death of the great hunter by one prick of the scorpion’s tail. The sting was so fatal that the God of Healing, Asclepius, could not even reverse the effects. As a reward for the scorpion’s services, the goddess Artemis placed him in the stars. Scorpius and Orion will never be seen in the sky at the same time because of this.

Jealousy is the downfall of many of them. This emotion should be moderated for successful long-term relationships. They also tend to dwell on your emotions rather than the matters at hand. The strong sense of perception present in most Scorpios should be relied upon.

The Scorpion parent should beware of a tendency to be too strict and demanding. The Scorpion child will require an outlet for the considerable emotional energy present – aggression should be expected. A bored Scorp is not the happiest person to be with.
