Here Comes Scorpio: Oh My God, Where Are We Going to Hide?

When people hear mention of the sign Scorpio, many of them gasp! Still others are belied by the mysteriousness of the sign. Many more faces turn ashen with fear and foreboding! Scorpio has the reputation of being the most maligned sign of the zodiac. It is associated with many of society's subconscious and forbidden aspects such as night, sex, the occult, and death.

In astrology, Scorpio is the eighth sign and rules the eight house. In numerology, the number eight is the number of building and destruction. The number eight also represents infinity i.e. death is nothing but passing into a higher form. The eight house in astrology is associated with sex, death, rebirth, and managing resources. The two subjects of sex and death were considered in our Judeo-Christian culture as somewhat mysterious and forbidden. Scorpio has a reputation of being the sexiest sign in the zodiac. Furthermore, many Scorpios are curious and fascinated by the subjects of death, the afterlife, and rebirth.

Scorpio has traditionally been ruled by the planet Mars. However, since Pluto was discovered in 1930, its qualities of being otherworldly and unseen has been particularly associated with Scorpio. Pluto is associated with the Roman deity of the same name and the Greek god Hades. Besides being associated with the underworld and the unseen, Pluto rules transformation, big business, mining, surgery, and wealth. Pluto is the great renewer and to the extreme it rules corruption and the misuse of power.

Scorpio is also the strongest sign in the zodiac physically, emotionally, and psychically. This sign does not suffer fools gladly and is an automatic B.S. detector. Scorpios are the natural detectives of the zodiac, so it is best not to use any type of deception, prevarication or falsehood when encountering them. If you do, the results will not be pretty, to say the least.

Scorpio has the stamina of 1000 people. There is nothing that a Scorpio will not undergo or withstand to achieve his or her goal. It is unafraid to go into avenues which would make the average and more timid run in fear. It is not afraid to descend to the ninth circle of Hell if it means accomplishing his or her desired goal. No avenue is too dark, forbidden, risky, or dangerous. Scorpio is no lightweight at all. This sign believes in adhering to strict dichotomies: It is all or nothing! Forget about being in between with this sign.

Scorpio is one of the three water signs in astrology. The water element represents creativity, spirituality, and being emotional. Water signs are often instinctual, they use their psyche to delve into matters and are often correct without using traditional methods of logic. The other two water signs are Cancer and Pisces. Besides being a water sign, Scorpio is one of the four fixed signs. Fixed-sign people are often resolute in their opinions. They know what they want, desire, and believe in! Once they have formed their opinions, they are not easily swayed. If a person is foolhardy enough to attempt to sway them, they are in for a quite unpleasant surprise!

Since Scorpio is a fixed water sign, their emotionality and creativity are very intense. The saying, "still waters run deep" is very apropos for them. The average Scorpio believes that there are many things that should be left unsaid.

Scorpios are fascinated by what many perceive to be unseen and occult. Religions—traditional, alternative, and metaphysical—are sources of inquiry and fascination to many of them. They know that the spiritual world is just as real as the physical world. This is the same reason why many are curious about the metaphysical and occult aspects of life. There is no spiritual area that they are unafraid to explore!

There are some Scorpios who have the psychic propensity to see beyond the veil. They can see dimensions which are often hidden or closed to the less evolved average person. They are drawn to the aspects of life which is considered dark, forbidden, and dangerous according to societal standards.

In astrology, Scorpio rules the night. During the period of late October, the days start to become shorter and the nights longer. The night is gaining an edge over the day. According to folklore, the night is associated with the dark, hidden, and demonic. People are subconsciously afraid of the night because the night represents that which is often unseen and forbidden! There is less traffic in the night than there is in daylight. Many people, especially women and the old, are warned not to go out at night (particularly alone) because it is a dangerous time.

The night is also associated with the rise of predators, both human and other lifeforms. There are metaphoric and mythological stories about vampires and other creatures that go bump in the night. The night is often considered a dangerous time for many reasons. I remember my maternal cousin telling me a scary tale as a child about the midnight spook. According to him, the midnight spook comes from the beyond at midnight and takes your soul! I was eight years old at the time and this tale scared me to death! Aaah the night has sooo many dark surprises!

Halloween is a Scorpionic holiday. During this time, people try to outdo each other wearing the most outlandish and/or scariest costumes. Halloween is a holiday which has often dark and scary origins on which I will elaborate here! Halloween is considered the darkest and scariest holiday around—it is quite apt that it occurs during the time of Scorpio!

Scorpio is associated with many scary and venomous animals, especially the scorpion, spider, many forms of insects; and reptiles, especially snakes. The snake is closely associated with this sign. The snake is often an unobtrusive animal; however, it can become testy and bite if it is bothered. The snake is also greatly feared because of its forbidden presence and shape in addition to being quite lethal!

Scorpio are quite known for taking umbrage when they have been dealt an injustice. Their vengeance is not sudden. The Scorpionic brand of vengeance can often be prolonged and deliciously venomous! Let the bastards wait is their motto! I will take my sweet and lovely time to exact the proper justice! The poor instigator will never know what occur as the justice exacted as proverbially as stinging as a venomous bite!

Since Scorpio is a sign of extremes, they are highly evolved, hellish, and demonic. The highly evolved Scorpios have an extremely high level of spiritual consciousness. These Scorpios do not believe in crushing their opponents but practice forgiving and letting go. They believe that there is no point in practicing revenge and being petty. They maintain that they were put on this Earth to achieve the highest level of spiritual consciousness that they can achieve in this lifetime. They are also strict practitioners of karma- any act committed will come back to you sevenfold, whether it is good or bad.

Then there is the unevolved, hellish, and demonic Scorpio. This Scorpio is quintessentially evil in the strictest definition of the word. They can be classified as sociopaths. They refuse to adhere to right and wrong. They believe that the pleasure and act justify what ever means necessary. They also can be quite manipulative and refuse to take any responsibility for any type of wrongdoing if they happen to hurt any one in the process. Many metaphysicians and New Age spiritualists would call these types of Scorpios, dark entities. Dark entities are people who have no moral consciousness regarding right and wrong. They believe in doing what they want and are completely unconcerned if anyone is hurt and/or harmed in the process!

Most Scorpios are fortunately quite evolved individuals. They are strong people who either are devoted to you or they leave you completely alone. There is nothing lukewarm about the Scorpio persona. What you see is what you get with this person! There is no pretense about Scorpio!

In summation, Scorpio is the darkest sign of the zodiac. It represents the elements which are considered taboo or forbidden in society, such as sex and death. Scorpio represents which is hidden and unseen in our psyches. Scorpio represents our subconscious and our unconscious longings. In essence, Scorpio represents which is truly dark and fierce within our collective psyches!

Love the title and the Hub :)maybe because I am a Scorpio, and have read about my sign. Reading some of the same general things. With the exception of the different sides of the Scorpio sign, going towards spirituality or the non evolved Scorpio. I am wondering about the whole Pluto thing now since it's not a planet anymore :) Interesting Hub.

I am a proud Scorpio as well.

I have ben studying astrology for as long as i can remember.

We get a bad rep but can be one of the most powerful signs if we learn to control our bad traits. Just like a Pisces needs to learn not to just spend all their time daydreaming, the Scorpio must overcome petty jealousy and stubbornness to learn to be forgiving and trusting.

scorpio man confuses the life out of me ,i don't get it ? scorpio man chases me ( to be honest i didn't notice at first ) it was online ,we chatted and messaged each other hundreds of times a day ,then i fell for him even when he ran hot and cold,he says he as no doubts about me and i said the same to him,he does suffer depression and i stood by him,we still haven't met but he says he wants to and always as wanted to but never set a date,i told him its his call .its been over 4 months now and bit by bit hes gone quieter and doesn't talk anymore just txts .ive been supportive and not nagged him and given him his space but also told him i care and have feelings for him .today i sent him a txt saying i felt pushed away and feel that he wants to be away from me ,i said i want us to have a break from contact cos i feel he needs the space ,i did nt tell him i feel rejected n drained cos i don't want him to feel bad with what's already going on with him,i said i hope he gets things in his life sorted soon .he never replied but i didn't expect he would,seems all give on my part and nothing back.im a virgo who just needed to let it out of my system cos im feeling a bit sad right now.may avoid scorpio men now lol although everything about scorpio is perfect for me .wish i could understand them .thanks for letting me rant on your page .

BBB-scorpsagcusp 4 years ago

hey jjpinki :) well I am not a Scorpio man but a Scorpio woman and what can I say two things come to mind. Scorpios don't like getting hurt in any emotional way if that is that danger we might react a bit strange or strange to a non scorpio. I don't know if you think that might be a possibility but also if we really like somehow as a friend or in a relationship we don't just leave. Or at least it is my personal opinion and my experience with other scorpios and myself of course hahaha. We always come back and fight til the bitter end or well sometimes it doesn't have to be bitter and it is also doesn't have to be an end more as a new beginning. If you like that in a person and you make a scorpio feel safe I think you can't go wrong there ever with a scorpio. We are very loyal people I would say in general to our loved ones. Intense emotional yes but you can count on us I would dare say. Thanks for just letting me put my thought on the matter out there :)

You know something? I have read just about all the article I could find on Scorpios and everyone at least mentions them being spiritual or psychic, etc. I had a dream a while back about my deceased great grandmother. In the dream I was standing in the hallway and she was trying to get my fathers attention but he was talking to someone. I remember she walked over to me and told me some things, then gave me a hug. I kid you not, if I wasn't interested in spiritual things before I am now. I could feel that hug when I woke up, I even thought it was someone putting a blanket on me when I was sleeping and I woke up enough to feel it. Well, my father not paying attention in the dream really upset me so I called him up right then at like 3 in the morning and apparently I was a little hysterical but that's beside the point. He ended up telling me about a dream he had of his grandfather (which would be her husband), about a decade after he died. Yes, my dad is a scorpio too. I am going to keep a closer eye on my dreams I think. :) excellent hub!

Sounds pretty accurate. My soon to be ex husband is Scorpio and I'm Taurus. Kaboom! A BS'er married to a BS detector! The sex was absolutely explosive and a perfect rhythm. Ever seen a bull dance with a scorpion? But everything else was "guess his emotions" cuz he wasn't talkin'! Good read!


cdmadesimple 4 years ago

I understand things and let things be open. When people are quick to judgeg me my defense is that I learned from mystake and I can talk about with ease and even if they didn’t tell me anything personal I can spot out what's damaged or emotional issues they have. When I say something about them they stay quiete and hide there tails. People may not pay attention but I care about people emotions so when they speak to me I already see something but I won’t say anything because who am I to judge. I ask questions so that they hear themselves speak in hopes in finding a new answer. I share my experiences in hopes they can see a different light or another approach. However do not cross paths with me. I say things out of good and when threatened or mocked, your emotional insecurities that you hid so well will be revealed full throttle that will make you not say anything like that to me or anyone for that matter.

I can see where they say Scorpios are vindictive. We are very emotional and loving people. I don’t think were vindictive on purpose, we have a lot of emotional damage and if one is not fixed to forgive and see the light then one will bare the mark of the scorpion snake without any spiritual guide to reach enlightenment.

Nothing is worst then a scorned Scorpio. I myself have an inborn power or a vibrational speciality aka physcic propensities. Not the best thing. For I can feel everyones energy on a higher vibration and attract the sad, the damage and all I want to do is help. In turn waisting my energy for myself.

Scorpios will always protect the emotions because of this. They feel people won't understand the emotional feeling and can't express because either he hasn't learned to embrace, accept, forgive and forget and do yoga. The ONLY way to do this is to separate yourself from the chaos you live in for a moment to reset and realize life's path. Scorpios are stubborn and have intuition. It's a double edge sword the only way to be healed is to let life lead you without putting up a fight.

Remember you only think you need to be here or do this because what society tells you to, that's why when you do it, you still feel unsatisfied. Learn to let go, speak your true goals and I promise everything will fall into place. I'm a believer of it and a prime example amongst many others. Here to help! Namaste! :)

Sigh people are still not getting it. I always read these and its the same thing "go into the light" Well hate to break it to you but the light yeah it isn't perfection its not enlightenment. People keep ignoring one of the most important lessons of Scorpios. The darkness is here to stay and it is by no means something to be feared or shunned. I am a Scorpio but not this light wishy washy nor crazy psyco mantis type of Scorpio either. There is much truth in the darkness i only hope people wake up to this fact. This world will never be utopia for it is balance that makes the world go round not love stop ignoring the other half dammit.

Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, and that shouldn't be taken lightly -- nor should Scorpios! Those born under this sign are dead serious in their mission to learn about others. There's no fluff or chatter for Scorpios, either; these folks will zero in on the essential questions, gleaning the secrets that lie within. Scorpios concern themselves with beginnings and endings, and are unafraid of either; they also travel in a world that is black and white and has little use for gray. The curiosity of Scorpios is immeasurable, which may be why they are such adept investigators. These folks love to probe and know how to get to the bottom of things. The fact that they have a keen sense of intuition certainly helps.

The Scorpion symbolizes Scorpio, and that is no accident. Much like the Scorpion would rather kill itself than be killed, those born under this sign are in ultimate control of their destiny. It is life on the Scorpion's terms, too, since these folks promote their agenda (they are quite the executives) and see to it that things go forward. Others may find this overbearing (it can be) and even self-destructive, but that's the beauty of the Scorpio: they have tremendous regenerative powers, much like the literal Scorpion can lose its tail and promptly grow a new one. And for you sergio fearless Scorpios rarely lose; they just keep on going, since they are stubborn and determined to succeed (this Scorpio trait is in keeping with the Fixed Quality assigned to this sign).

Nixx 3 years ago

Life for a Scorpio in my eyes is living in a silver lining of dark and light as you can't have one with out the other . . . then just utilize them as need per situations you come across in your life. Don't limit your self with one or the other side of what you can be. Be all of it as we can be. love and hate are part of life, both come and both go away and all over again.

Scorpions! , There is one dangerous sign which goes ahead of you, they are dual personalities, since they possess both Devil & Angel Character. As long as Angel persona works, things will be pleasant but once the other face comes which is Devil it is most Dangerous. Devil Part act like Chameleon nature which means it can act like any of the Zodiac signs.

Its the GEMINI

Your husband most likely have planets in other signs and/or an ascendant in other signs. I am a Sun Sign Virgo b. 9/21; however, I have six planets in water signs, notably Cancer and Scorpio plus I have an ascendant in Pisces. I am not the typical Virgo who abides by rules and is overly obsessive about minute details. I am highly creative and sometimes quite impulsive. Astrology is more than one's sun sign, other planets in the horoscope also influences the personality.

I wrote a hub on it, however my husband's chart isn't full of let's say water signs like yours. Could it be some other reason my husband isn't like Scorpio? There is a Scorpion and an Eagle


Deborah Sexton 2 years ago

By Lynn Hayes

Scorpio has not just two symbols but three: the Scorpion, the Eagle and the Phoenix. Scorpio fearlessly delves into the darker emotions of the human psyche; like the Scorpion, the Scorpio personality prefers to crawl low to the ground, hiding in hidden corners and is prepared to sting and destroy if threatened in any way. This illustrates the Mars factor of the earth-bound nature of Scorpio: the aggressive intensity of rage and self-protection. The Eagle shares with the scorpion the ability to strike at a moment’s notice, but where the Scorpion’s journey is low to the ground the Eagle soars above the earth, proud and free. The Eagle has a probing eye that sees what others miss and like the Mars warrior, is very aware of the subtle dynamics of power.

The Phoenix is the transformational symbol of Scorpio. Like the Eagle, in ancient times the Phoenix was a symbol of the Sun that was said to live for 500 years. At the end of its life it built a funeral pyre and burned in the flames, only to regenerate its progeny from those very flames. The Scorpio nature cannot run from the destruction of the fire of its emotional intensity, but within that fire is the secret of immortality and resurrection. Scorpio is a water sign but Mars bestows the essence of fire as well and with it the courage to enter the fire and become transformed.

Deb Houlding has an excellent article on Scorpio in this month’s Mountain Astrologer which is also on her website. I was particularly interested in the analysis Deb did of the scorpion and eagle connection:

If, as the Egyptians thought, scorpions represent initiation into the sacred mysteries, we can consider the sign’s other related creature, the eagle, as a higher expression of Scorpio power. Many ancient astrologers, including Ibn Ezra [Arabic astrologer] , recognized eagle symbolism as valid to this sign, since the biblical prophet Ezekiel described a vision, believed to be drawn from Babylonian astrology and representative of the ‘fixed cross of matter’:

As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man [Aquarius], and the face of a lion [Leo], on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox [Taurus] on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle [Scorpio]. (Ezekiel 1 verse 10).

Saint John’s book of the Apocalypse (Revelation 4, v7) also alludes to the vision, of which Fred Gettings, in The Secret Zodiac, writes:

The eagle of St John is the eagle of Scorpio, which sign (alone of all the twelve) has two images, the eagle the symbol of the redeemed and spiritualized Scorpionic nature, the scorpion its fallen, unredeemed and earth-bound nature.

Transcendence from the crawling scorpion to the soaring eagle, still predatory, still conveying the essence of patience and penetration, but capable of flight and height, brings together the theme of destruction and renewal as a story of evolution.

With five planets still in Scorpio for the next week, we are all facing the call to explore the inner recesses of our psyches and see where we need to face the fire and rise again.

Thank you gmwilliams, what a lovely read. I am a taurus sun sign with a majority of other planets in the sign of scorpio including my moon. I can relate. I do feel strongly about karma, past lives and the metaphysical world. In fact, I have 6 planets in retrograde in my birth chart, which I assumed was the reason I feel my soul is old, lol. Naturally, I want to be a detective because I like to delve deep into the unknown and a major part of me wants to bring justice to those that deserve it. I hope I have learned what was needed in this lifetime. Thanks again!

I'm a Scorpio Rising with Saturn in the 1st and Pluto in the 12th. I also have the South Node in Scorpio. I have Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Aries, and Mars in Taurus. I laugh every time people pump Scorpio up to be more than what it is. Scorpio is a sign that deals with the underworld. It is a sign that deals with people on a very deep level rather they are conciously aware or not. When it is concious, it is given full responsibility over it's actions to hurt or heal others. So yeah this makes Scorpio dangerous because it is so power hungry, yet so understanding at the same time, yet also can be a healer given they reach the level of Phoenix.

Yet when people overestimate this sign and make it out to be the strongest sign in the zodiac, I say hogwash.

You're typical Scorpion that is out to get you is passive aggressive about it. I've fought many battles with Scorpio and have endured many stings. They will usually do all kinds of things, really nasty things, to screw with your mind and try to slowly destroy you. They will do it in a way that makes them look completely innocent. They will try to wear you down mentally and spiritually. This might work on a lot of people but it doesn't work on me. Many a Scorpio have experianced very intense fear when I confront them right in their face. It doesn't seem might is a quality of Scorpio either. Physically, I'm not very impressed at all. I've knocked many down with and beaten them physically using a fraction of my own force to do it. Even Mars in Scorpio may or may not be all they crack themselves up to be(Mars in Scorpio is more dangerous than Sun in Scorpio). I've defeated Mars in Scorpio too.

I can't say quite the same for Aries. I've defeated many Rams too, but I will say that they always put up a good fight I respect. Rams don't play any games either. They just get down to business and have no qualms about putting their hands on you. I've had a female Ram punch me right in my forehead, leaving an everlasting scar from her diamond ring. Rams may not be as smart as in mental ways like Scorpio's but their mean like Scorpio's. No, their worse. They can absolute bullys who can make your life a living hell. Got a problem with it? Do something about it! That's the motto of a Ram. Yes, the Aries will always top the Scorpio in everything he does, even sex(Especially with Mars in Taurus there). The Ram will defeat the Scorpion.

So all this talk about Scorpio being so deadly and should be so respected. I eat Scorpions for lunch. If you're a woman and you want to walk these mean streets and know you got a strong man to protect you. Get an Aries, Taurus, or Capricorn man.

Ugh...I'm so tired of people getting this wrong! The strongest sign in the zodiac is LEO because they're the only sign ruled by the sun and so as a SUN sign, that's the strongest placement. Leos also have the powerful lion as their symbol! Leos are a fire sign and as such are physically stronger than Scorpios who are merely a water sign (emotions). Like Scorpios, Leos are a fixed sign and as such have immense determination and stamina! Lastly, Leo was the most feared sign in ancient times because it was the only sign characterized as both "bestial" (savage) and "feral" (extremely dangerous behavior)! Thus, sorry but LEO is the ultimate STRONGRST sign!!!


scorpion 2 years ago

i don't know if i believe in the horoscope stuff fully, but since im a scorpio n in relation to the comments above, ive always felt an innate darkest part of myself being an urge i try to hide. not necessarily being a fighter or doing others wrong. more like i fear myself most. its when fear shakes me up and finally i give in sometimes. i will go to extremes to get what i want. death n pain will not stop that side of me. fortunately i have only done good with that and not died yet.

it kinda feels like since im alone and worthless and lousy..... then why not go all the way? crawl through glass if i must. im not afraid to show fear to get where i want. the urge says don't talk or try convincing others to beat the fact that we all die the fk alone. it says go out if i must to reach where i want and make the exit a big fuckin fire.

I have never ever heard of Leo being the strongest sign, normally when this is mentioned it is Scorpio or Aries...

gmwilliams 2 years ago from the Greatest City In The World-New York City, New York Author

LOL, Scorpio, not Leo, is THE STRONGEST sign in the zodiac. There is no other sign that can ENDURE like Scorpio. Scorpians can endure the harshest and most aversive environments and still OVERCOME such harsh beginnings. Leos aren't that strong, sorry!

Leo think that because they are call king of the jungle they are strong . Please don't fool your self the smallest thing in life are the strongest !an ants can kill elephant . I'm a scorpion and I can relate to everything I have lost an ex- boyfriend the day before I learn he has passed he can to me and have sex with me in a dream but it felt so real something we didn't do when we were together because it was junior high love we were to young and he always tell me he regret that ! He was in a coma for a week before he die and the after my dream even though i didn't think I was him in my dream when I learned his passing I knew it was him ! Weird yes but true but don't like to get attach to my dark and hidden side I like to let thing go and learn to forgive ! Spiritual yes , karma bet you it always come back , and I'm so scare of my self cause when you hurt me even if I don't move one finger you will get it hard my vengeance is spiritual , my soul is strong

"it's a scorpio thing" on fb,

i am very fortunate to have become one of the admins (i post as christine) it became available to me during the most difficult time in my life thus far.

i've shared many personal thoughts, feelings, struggles (i refer to them as "ramblings")

it's difficult putting it out there, it's scary.

the journey i've been on has been long, hard, and a lot of "darkness"... i share simply bc i don't want my pain to be in vain (so to speak)

if just one person relates, feels the comfort of knowing someone understands, gets it...that's all i'm after.

there isn't a greater feeling than knowing "you're not the only one" when you are in complete despire.

willow, page creator, said two words to me that i held on to...

"scorpio strong"

that's who i am.

(seem to be rambling now as well...lol! ....thank you for letting me share)

The Scorpio-rising sign is a "cruel-taskmaster." Nothing gets beyond his eagle-eye and if he chooses he can swoop down on the prey and they will be lifted to heights unknown to non-scorpios. The claws just grasp the "victim" deeper and deeper so the prey is at the will of the scorpio. Now the victim is ready to learn of die! There is no alternative, Learn or Die!


shane 14 months ago

Grace, great article!, I can give you examples from my life to match what you have written in this post, I am a Scorpio male, staring at the greatest career setback possible, do Scorpios make a comeback, can a Lizard turn into Eagle? I really need your consultation if you care. Thanks.

Scorpio is the sign who can make the most phenomenal comeback ever. Scorpio is the strongest sign of the zodiac. Scorpio can do anything h/she sets his/her mind on. There is no such thing as can't in the Scorpio vocabulary!


Tudor 9 months ago

If this dark scorpio of yours is true, then you have just described 90% of the population. Do you realize almost everyone is like this, selfishly pursuing their own interest with no sign of compassion or respect for anyone else but the people who have value in their eyes. Not sure I believe or agree with your definitions here

I'm also a Scorpio woman. I've had dream a few months ago & a few weeks ago, I went with my daughter to take my grandkids to there doctors appointment & as we were getting ready to leave the doctor came out & I looked @ her & when she left, I told my daughter that, I had just dream about this & she just looked @ me


sjdkfkk 7 months ago

I don't know why but all scorpios i met are angels (i attract so much is that because im a taurus) i mean im so close to all of them my all bestest friends are scorpio and my mother is one and i think you guys are just misunderstood. Yes you all get jealous of everything and get angry over the most stupidest things, and you guys hide every tnink it's not even funny, its so annoying and i want to burn them in hell but - they are actually kind,adorable, deep just little misunderstood dorks.


Leo 5 months ago

They may seem similar, but the Scorpios are driven by rage and darkness while Leos' power comes from light and good. If you dealt with Scorpio and knew his real side, without being blind by compability reasons, then you could see how dangerous and destructive they can be (placement in Moon examined, unfortunatelly-abusive relationship).


Billy Handwick 4 months ago

The 'least powerful' is Gemini: Most of them are pushover, pansies, airheads, and faggots. The symbol -the twins- is a gay, stupid symbol; gay as hell. People that are adept at 'socializing' and nothing else might as well be women and faggots and nothing else. Requires no intelligence to be good at socializing. Without drive, personality, and passion, you have no talents or skills. Not coincidentally, whenever I look up someone at wikipedia to find out anything about them (be it movie director, scientist, etc.) people that have talents by far there are less Gemini and Taurus than all other zodiac signs.

I say this unbiasedly since I, myself, am half-Taurus half-Gemini -but not proud of it, but consider myself to be a rare exception -though admittedly I have no skills or talents, myself.

Though Scorpios are extremely talented and driven and a billion times more talented and intelligent than most Gemini or Taurus, I would bet a billion dollars I'd kick the shit out of any Scorpio in ANYTHING including at what THEY excel at like no other -martial arts. I WILL mess with any fucking Scorpio..and win..and kick the shit out of him at anything. Not because I HAVE to be the best. But because I AM.

Fuck Scorpios. I'd fuck up any Scorpio any day of the month.


ThePaganSun 3 months ago

No, Leo's are the STRONGEST sign. NOT some pathetic little spider. Leo's not only "endure" like the little spider does but they MAKE the world and others cater to THEM. Sorry, but being "hypnotic" or "mysterious" is hardly "strong" either. Lions can CRUSH a little scorpion/spider both metaphorically and in real life so get your facts straight. Scorpio ain't "strong" at all. Leos are LIONS for a reason and no Zodiac I'd stronger. Surely not some pathetic little spider.

Sheesh....and all this time I thought I was a nice person. Lol. But seriously, I enjoyed this comprehensive article. I would have liked to have learned about famous personalities who are Scorpio, and who do encompass all of these "dark" qualities.

But it's true. Scorpio's don't like it when you mess with them. Nope. Not at all!!

Scorpian men are bastards and hypocrites. Truly bad people.

Vindictive and cruel but I'm a great believer in what goes around comes around and it does even on these people.

I really enjoyed this hub because I'm a fan of astrology as well. For me personally, I have always had a complicated relationship with Scorpios, whether they were friends, bosses, co-workers, or significant others. They are definitely people you have to be very careful around. I believe there's good and bad in every zodiac sign, so maybe I just got the bad ones of the bunch. As an Aquarius woman, I know Scorpio men and I don't make a good match astrologically, but for some reason I do find Scorpio men very intriguing. There's just something about him, am I right ladies?
