As a Scorpio you have deep passions hidden within, but somehow manage to keep enviable calmness, as a result many consider you a real mystery! Your most admirable quality is self-control. Never mind your emotional storms, you rarely allow others and the outside world to know and understand what you feel. The scorpions are brave and determined individuals, and at the same time secretive – you always manage to catch your opponent unprepared. Your demands towards others and yourself are high, and on top of all that, you hate compromises – you would never allow it, much less if it concerns your conscience.

In this sense, one can say that you are insanely honest or you are absolutely unscrupulous. Sometimes you combine both extremes, but you are in no way looking for the comfort of the “golden mean”. As the eighth zodiac sign you tend to remember every flattery and insult you receive, but only the more primitive individuals go out to seek vengeance, most often than not your preference is to let natural course of events take place, because you know eventually the situation will resolve in your favor. A Scorpio loves unraveling the secrets and mysteries that Fate throws on their way – it makes you feel lively, vibrant, filled with energy and passion.


Positive: acumen, self-criticism, magnetism, sensuality, durability, curiosity, solicitude, dedication.

Negative: ruthlessness, jealousy, over-control, suspiciousness, bitterness, revenge, intolerance, secrecy.
