Scorpio is nothing, if not fierce! The 8th Sign of the Zodiac, the Scorpio loves a good fight, and can give ‘intensity’ a run for its money (worth). Well, to put it simply, the Scorpions are strong, commanding, intense, passionate and zealous. Driven, dedicated and loyal, they also are ambitious and security-loving. Inquisitive and ready to learn, Scorpio individuals are intelligent, motivated people, who can contribute amply to any project. However, it is noteworthy that if the strength of the Scorpio-born lies in these qualities, his/her deepest weaknesses too are rooted in them. Yes, these charming individuals don’t like to quit, and their impassioned efforts are to die for.
Yet, this same ‘never say no’ attitude becomes painful, when the Scorpio takes and treats every ‘no’ as an insult. And, when an otherwise beautifully ardent passion gets misdirected and becomes fanaticism, the Scorpio-born is, as always, sadly unstoppable. This, though, is not to say that Scorpios are fearsome or negative. On the contrary, Scorpions are lovely, dependable friends and awesome lovers. Soft at core as they are, they happily bow down to the wishes of their beloved and kids, and are open to bend backwards for their (family’s) happiness.
Sensuous in love and willing and caring in all their sweet bonds, Scorpio individuals make some of the best mates, unless, of course, their vengeful sides are stirred. Betrayal is the word and expression, Scorpio-borns hate and cannot take prettily. If someone truly gets in Scorpios’ way, they lose their temper, and get revengeful. In short, they need a plenty of own space. All said and done, Scorpios are fearless beings and keep moving on, as they are determined to succeed. Their aura of mystery and secretiveness makes them akin to a magnet – someone to whom others will, invariably, be drawn.
Scorpio the Perturber
The Scorpio horoscope sign has the element water, but not the waves on the surface or the playful rain from the sky. This is the deep water, in the darkness far below the surface, where few have gone. Scorpio is the horoscope sign of the hidden forces, which are mighty although they are neither known nor explicable.
That’s all kinds of unknown, like the mystery of magic and the occult, but also the subconscious, making us vaguely aware of its existence through dreams and longings from deep within. Although these forces are mostly invisible, they are mighty important in how we actually live our lives, especially regarding the impulses that carry us away at times, frequently to our own frustration.
The key word for the Scorpio horoscope sign is passion, but then it must be understood that emotions of this grand scale are usually contained within us. We fear the power unleashed if we express them, so we do our best to suppress them. The Scorpio Zodiac sign in the horoscope is the same, but consciously so: Scorpio loves to have others express the strong, almost chaotic emotions we all hide inside, whereas Scorpio remains seemingly unaffected. Like a catalyst.
The scorpion is a relevant symbol of the Scorpio horoscope traits - a small but dangerous animal, invoking both fear and fascination. The archetype of the magician is another good example of the Scorpio horoscope character. So is the actor, who plays a role by which the feelings of others are stirred, but the actor remains unaffected.

Nature of Scorpio
Scorpion represents your Zodiac Sign. Some astrologers are of the opinion that Scorpio Sign is an introverted feminine Sign. Nevertheless, your nature is distinctly dissimilar, and as you grow in age, your nature keeps evolving, touching higher and higher planes. It can be quite a fascinating experience to remain in the company of Scorpios, but at the same time it can be dangerous as well.
At times, judging their real purpose can present a big problem. Some might consider you to be a very passive Sign, softly holding your grievances with much patience until you get a chance to pang back. However, the analogy apart, you have the ability to take risks and are more thrilled by what is concealed (secret) than what is obvious. Certainly, you’re have enough and are not at all afraid to face big problems or challenges.
