Scorpio, the eighth sign of the zodiac, is symbolized by a scorpion. According to astrologers, people whose birthdays fall between October 23 and November 21 are born under the sun sign of Scorpio. The planet Pluto rules Scorpio, which is a water sign.
According to astrologers, Scorpio’s characteristically maintain a high level of physical and emotional strength, but also exhibit traits of jealousy and secrecy. Astrologers point to the deep, penetrating nature of a Scorpio’s personality and correlate it with water, the elemental force associated with Scorpio.
Astrologers consider Scorpio’s to be energetic, passionate, deep, intuitive, and secretive, with a great deal of self-control. They also believe that Scorpio’s can be willful, stubborn, and easily made jealous. Scorpio’s are thought to be keen observers of people, and potentially calculating and manipulative. Seeing more of people’s deepest motivations than others do, they have a tendency to be cynical. They are sensitive and never forget a hurt or a slight. For the typical Scorpio, forgiveness can be difficult.
Astrologers consider Scorpio perhaps the most extreme of all signs. The intensity and focus of Scorpio’s gives them great ability to see a project through despite all obstacles. Their strong leadership qualities, incisive analytic abilities, energy, and desire for financial security can make them motivated career people. Many Scorpions also like to flirt with danger and push themselves and those close to them to their limits. Professions traditionally associated with Scorpio include forensics, law enforcement or detective work, the military, medicine, psychology, big business, inspectors, governors and recycling.
