Scorpio scorpio
(Born between October 23 - November 21)
Scorpio is symbolized by the scorpion, who has a stinger in his tail. This is a fixed, feminine water sign, ruled by Pluto, and in ancient tradition, Mars. Scorpios are subtle and secretive in their approach to things, and like to remain in the shadows. They don't let the rest of the world know their business, and tend to be quiet or anti-social. If you want to keep a secret, it will be safe with a Scorpio. If he is in a bad humor, he will snap at you, and you will definitely feel the sting.

But Scorpios are not as scary as they seem. They are sincere, loyal and consistent in their efforts. You will always have a steadfast friend in Scorpio if you are on the level with them. They make good detectives, spies, researchers, psychoanalysts, archaeologists and geologists.

Scorpios are noted for being strongly passionate lovers. They also have an unsavory reputation for revenge. They are magnetic, intense, powerful, profound, calm but with a volcano beneath the surface. They like to have tight control over their affairs.

A Scorpio's passion can be expressed in different ways. A man can become either a playboy or a priest. Both men and women have the power to seduce, but if committed to a vow, they will remain staunchly celibate.

If he has revenge on his mind, he saves it for another time when the intended recipient will get the full impact, which includes the element of surprise. He can hold a grudge for years if he has a good reason. He must overcome this urge and cultivate forgiveness. If Scorpio can direct his passion into the right channels he can accomplish great things.

This Month's Horoscope
Because of Mercury arriving on October 17, followed by the Sun, research and background checks are favored, and mysteries can be solved. Pay attention and listen more closely. Follow your intuition. You may be more psychic now. Scorpio can see below the surface where others can't. You will be in the spotlight as well, after October 23 so make the most of it. Briefly put aside that Scorpio anti-social reserve. You may feel braver, more optimistic and empowered, with the coming of Jupiter for the next year.
