You are gifted in your strong reasoning powers with imagination and intuition, and these gifts, together with critical perception and analytical capacity, can enable the Scorpions to penetrate beyond the average.
Your sign has the potential for being a genius, more than any other sign, only because of your obsessive driven focus into whatever compels you.
At the other extreme is the procrastinator, the Scorpio who is capable of so much that you do nothing and become lazy and self-indulgent. Probably because you become so overwhelmed with what you see that has to be done that to get from here to there that it causes you to shut down.
Scorpio’s are the most intense, profound, and powerful characters in the zodiac. But in everyday social gatherings you are usually very pleasant and low key to be with, intelligent in conversation, reserved, and very friendly and courteous.
You usually give the appearance of being withdrawn or aloof from the usual drama in everyday life, yet those who know you will recognize your keen observational abilities in that you don’t miss a clue; it’s just that you don’t say anything. Your motto is life can be summed up in the clique that revenge is a dish best served cold, and with you it is so true. You just register everything and say nothing until you can use it to your best advantage. And therefore in business you can be very successful because of this incredible ability to always keeping a poker face until you lay down your winning cards.
Many Scorpio artists have used eroticism and sexuality as their signature but usually there is a sense of taboo, the dark, deep, and the exploring of the hidden mysteries of mankind. You will usually never see the art expression of a Scorpio being light, colorful and fun but mostly brooding, thought provoking, sometimes shocking and always intensely emotional.
Your main objective in loving is to merge beyond yourselves and to lose yourselves sexually in your partners, to a level of magic and therefore you are ultimately looking for a soul mate as well as a lover. You are capable of the greatest heights of passion, but you can also lose yourself in the pure pleasures of the flesh, and Scorpio’s can become machines of sensuality and eroticism when they lose that intimate or spiritual connection. Your feelings are so intense that even when your love is of the highest, and most idealistic kind, it can still shift into a melodrama of great highs and lows.
Your sensitivity, together with your extreme likes and dislikes make you easily hurt, quick to detect insult or injury to yourselves (even when you are just being paranoid) and easily aroused to rage. And your hurt and pains may express itself in words that could kill or action that cause lifelong enemies, for you find it difficult not to be overly critical of anything or anyone to whom you take a dislike but also fiercely loyal to anyone you love, just don’t betray the love of a Scorpio, remember how they love revenge best served cold.
I have seen an interesting theme in the lives of Scorpio’s whereupon there appears to be three elements going on within their psyche instead of the usual two. Most other signs have a public side and a private personal side except with Scorpio’s there is this third dimension, I call the shadow, that intimidates others. In childhood this mysterious side used to intimidate the Scorpio until they realized that this strange energy they don’t understand seems to have a power over other signs and that is when many Scorpio’s started using this mysterious power to manipulate others. The more evolved Scorpio’s have used this same energy for healing others with psychology, to medicine, or even with shamanic powers.
