Scorpio ♏ is the eighth astrological sign in the Zodiac, which spans the zodiac between the 210th and 239th degree of celestial longitude. Generally, the Sun transits this area of the zodiac between October 23 and November 21 each year (sometimes the dates vary slightly). Individuals born during these dates, whilst the Sun is within this sign are called Scorpios.
Scorpio as the other water signs is Feminine (negative) also known as the Polarization of the sign. Feminine signs are more receptive and cannot help but react to life. They draw in energy as opposed to Masculine (positive) signs that push energy out into the world.
Scorpio unlike Cancer and Pisces are a Fixed sign and don’t usually enjoy things to change. They want to conserve the season and keep things as they are. Their goals revolve around them and they want people to come to them. A big part of this could be Scorpios don’t want to reach out to someone or something with the fear of being rejected so they would rather wait for them to come. They don’t like rejection and dislike being wrong, and sometimes have the power to convince you they are right! Scorpios bottle things up, and they let it fill until they explode. Their tempers are sometimes unexpected and can catch others off guard. This can ruin many relationships throughout their life, however if they learn to channel this energy into something great they can be very successful in anything they put their mind to.
Of course we know this – they are also a Water Sign! Water signs are very connected with life. Very sensitive, they need to merge with other human beings.
Christie’s take on Scorpios:
I’ve observed that Scorpio men and women are very different. Although they both have quick tempers, the men might let it show more than the woman. I think its hard for a Scorpio woman to “act like a lady” when sometimes she just want to rip someone’s hair off! They are often sexy in their own unique way. Their eyes are very engaging and big… and you feel like you know them and yet there is so much mystery. They often come across mad, or hard to get to but really Scorpios are very deep thinkers. They have the ability to get so lost in thought that they are no longer in reality. So when they are stuck in their own little world they make you feel as though you are not there. Because they are such deep thinkers, they are very intelligent but not necessarily book smart. They are very deep emotionally and can absorb so much in their lifetime I believe this would be hard for any other sign to handle. Need to get something done but don’t know how? Ask a Scorpio. They probably do.
Scorpios are very dedicated passionate people – they will bend over backwards for you if you treat them right. Take advantage of your Scorpio for too long and they will leave and not come back. You won’t ever see it coming, because they are so good at not showing any hints that they are hurt.
Angie’s take on Scorpios:
One of my best friends since childhood is a Scorpio and I’ve had several other Scorp pals. The great thing I’ve noticed is that no matter how long you are out of contact with them, it doesn’t change a thing about how they think of you. I’ve had friends start to get awkward or mad that I haven’t talked to them in a while, but not my Scorpios. They understand the need for space. I haven’t seen my childhood friend, or even talked to her on the phone in over three years and she just asked me to be matron of honor in her wedding! This is what I like most about them. People think they are so brooding and complicated but once they love you, it rarely ever changes. They seem to prefer hanging out in small groups or one-on-one, than being in the middle of a big crowd — deep conversations don’t seem to happen in those situations. I have to agree that female Scorpios seem to have a better handle on themselves than the guys. It’s like they have to get comfortable with their emotions and their feminine side (in today’s society that’s still hard for guys to do in general) and balance it with their aggressive side. Actually, that seems to be a running theme in the water signs… Written by Angela Neal.
