Sunsigns and Appearances - Scorpio
Hawk-like noses, piercing eyes
James Bond and Sherlock Holmes are two famous Scorpios of fiction. They keep pretty much to themselves in the shadows. I suspect Batman is one too.
Scorpios don't dislike reptiles like some signs do. They are like them. No offense meant to Scorpios, as they are dangerous when offended. I mean the way they keep to the shadows. You can't know a Scorpy completely. For them, knowledge is power and they give out knowledge about themselves only to a few people they completely trust. Just try analyzing their character to make them uncomfortable! It is fascinating to them how much you know about them, and dangerous too. But Scorpios love flirting with danger, so I guess it's all right!
Stares and keen glances
Take any group photograph. The person who looks deep and steady into the camera as if studying it, that's the scorpion. The same stare in most of the pictures. They are part of the group but also parts of them are not for sharing with the group. They are like houses where you are free to roam but that one door that leads to a secret lair, you are forbidden to open.
Actors in real life
Even the scorpios who are not actors by profession are actors in real life. They have these masks that they wear according to occasion and audience. I can hear you say, " I know a Scorpio, but he is a jolly good fellow, and he is open and outspoken, not at all like you say." Well, wait for April when he will pull out his whiskers and say, "April Fool!"
