The Sign of Scorpio
Scorpio Personality Profile
Scorpios are extremely dynamic and energetic. They are given to powerful emotional extremes and are often driven by a powerful internal desire to achieve. Scorpios make excellent leaders because their desire to achieve greatness outweighs all else. Scorpios have a great love of life -- and they excel at most things they do. Whether working or playing, Scorpios do it to the extreme -- determined to "live life to the fullest". Individuals born under the astrological sign of Scorpio are often given to emotional outbursts, or periods of depression, anger or jealousy. Because of their intense desire to succeed, they can often be overly self-critical -- blaming themselves for things they are not actually responsible for. When Scorpios become angered by someone, they can take months (or sometimes years) to forgive and forget. As they say, "beware the sting of Scorpio". Scorpios tend to be very popular and well-liked. Their natural dynamism and high energy level are attractive qualities. They excel at athletics and competition of all kinds. They make natural leaders and are often looked up to as role-models in their fields. Scorpios are also excellent problem-solvers, and are unlikely to "give up" when obstacles appear in their paths.
Scorpio at Work
In the workplace, Scorpios are frequently found at the top. They tend to be aggressive, and goal-oriented -- stopping at nothing to achieve their personal success. They also tend to be vindictive and combative to anyone who stands in their path. Scorpios are extremely observant and analytical and like the desert scorpion, are extremely good at spotting opportunities others may have missed.
Scorpio in Love
Scorpios tend to set their sights on someone they want to be with -- and stop at nothing until that person is theirs. They are extremely passionate, emotional and given to intense relationships. When a Scorpio finally settles into a relationship, they tend to become much calmer and more balanced people -- but the road to that stability can be a bumpy one, full of emotional outbursts, passion and sometimes heartbreak. Scorpio must learn to set aside their natural jealousies and learn to trust -- only then will Scorpio find peace.
