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.
