Scorpio, the Passionate Zodiac Sign
Careful, we sting.
Yes we do. We rarely want to, but when we do it's fast and hard.
I'm a proud Scorpio, and if you're a true Scorpio, there's no other way to be. You LOVE your sign. You roll around in the mystery and passion of it, like a dog folicking in mud.
You're deep, passionate, sensual, and oh yes, you sting.
I don't believe in daily horoscopes; who does really? But I believe my sign is utterly,100% me.
Detective Columbo is my hero
For instance, I hate e-mail rumors and I'll debunk them every chance I get. I guess that ticks off my friends a bit, because I don't even get a "thank you" for stopping their spread of rumors and urban legends. Oh well.
But, I'm sorry, I need truth. I'm a detective, and when I smell a rat, I believe that people need to know!
I also love a good "whodunit" and of course, I'm a ghost hunter. According to www.exploringpsychics.com Scorpios: "They like to delve and probe into the unknown and often find themselves in exciting careers such as detective work, research and writing tales of suspense."
You know what they say about "still waters run deep" ? Scorpios don't typically wear their hearts on their sleeves. You'll never know what we are really thinking, or how deep the water is.
That's me. I don't like giving away too much of myself. There are many layers to this onion, and few if anyone will see all the layers.
One time I let someone see all my layers, I got really burned.
If you look at my profile, you won't see much personal info. I'm enigmatic about where I live, who I am, etc.
My privacy is precious to me. If I confide in you, I either trust you completely or I've indulged in too many glasses of wine.
Passionate, borderline coo-coo
I never travel anywhere without my soapbox. If I don't keep myself in check, I'll get so immersed in something that it will become an obsession. I rant, I rave, and I stand up for my causes despite my shy and introverted nature.
We all remember Joaquin Phoenix's little trip down coo-coo lane, all to pull off a movie hoax. Joaquin is the perfect specimen of a Scorpio; he's passionate, dark, intense, and mysterious, a virtual poster boy for our astrological sign.
Other famous Scorpios (who sometimes let their passions get the better of them) are: Winona Ryder, Julia Roberts, Leonardo DiCaprio, Katherine Hepburn and Demi Moore.
With an off-the-hook passion comes a bad habit: a fiery temper. We Scorpios are known for their sudden and intense temper, our "sting".
I don't think it's a good quality; I try very hard to reign in my stinger and be calm, however I don't always suceed and someone gets torched. Be careful with the Scorpio! You won't like me when I'm angry.
Death becomes her
The Scorpios planetary sign is Pluto, which is associated with darkness and death. The "Death" card in Tarot is also associated with Scorpio. Yes, I have a dark side; I tend to be fasinated by things that are considered morose and creepy. For instance, I love zombie movies, vultures, snakes, gothic looking buildings, ghost hunting...need I continue?
Speaking for myself, I like things that are dark and deep but, like a moth, I'm also strangely attracted to the light. I like to hang around bubbly people who talk a lot (maybe because it means I can talk less!), and then there is my weakness for bull-headed Tauruses (my astrological opposite).
Seriously, I seem to have a thing for Taurus men and the month of May in general. I love emeralds,the May birthstone and I'm a big fan of spring.
(Please don't think I sought out men according to their astrological signs. That's just silly. It just seemed to play out that way).
They say Scorpios are most compatible with Cancer, Pisces, Virgo and Capricorn, which is I believe is true for me, but only in friendships. Two of my best friends are Pisces and Capricorn. But in love, personally, I have to say opposites attract with me.
I wonder if that's true for all Scorpios? (Help me out, fellow Scorpios!!)I don't really know, but, I think Scorpios, being the passionate creatures they are, like the excitement of an opposite mate?
Then again, they say water and earth make mud, and with Scorpios being a Water sign and Taurus being Earth, things can get messy.
Anyway, to sum up, my greatest friends are usually Cancer, Pisces, Virgo and Capricorn. However, I fall in the mud for men?
That sounds about right.
How To Win A Scorpio's Heart
- Don't be controlling or clingy; we are very independent types, sometimes loners. You need to give a Scorpio their place.
- Be sexy. A alluring stare, smile, or touch can make the Scorpio's heart melt like butter.
- Don't give up too much of yourself. Remember, we love a little mystery! We want to be able to figure you out, but once we do, we may get bored. Keep us guessing!
- Books and unique jewelry make great gifts for the Scorpio.
