The month of November has just begun and it is (almost) in its entirety the month of the Scorpio. People born under this Sun sign are characterized by an ardent desire to learn as much as possible about those around them and by an unusual ability to uncover secrets. Scorpios aren’t afraid of either fresh beginnings or sudden endings. Their adventurous spirit determines them to be brave in either situation, and to take them as a challenge. Probably one of the traits which best define the Scorpios is their immeasurable curiosity, a trait which combined with their keen sense of intuition turns them into great investigators.
If we think about the animal associated with the Scorpio, the Scorpion would rather kill itself than to be killed. Creating a parallel between the behavior of this animal and people born under the Scorpio sign, we can say that they want to be in charge of their own lives, to live on their own terms and to play by their own rules. While some may consider this kind of attitude almost self-destructive, this is what makes Scorpios be themselves. Scorpio people can recover extremely fast from any unpleasant, hurtful experience; they are fearless, stubborn, ambitious, and passionate. No matter what hardships may come their way, they push through it all until they succeed. Don’t try to get too much into the life of a Scorpio because they are quite secretive and difficult to understand.
The planets which rule Scorpio are Pluto and Mars. The latter is the first ruler of Scorpio, and it was the God of War in ancient Roman mythology. Hundreds of years later, after the discovery of Pluto, it was associated with this Sun sign, too. Referring back to ancient Roman mythology, Pluto was the God of the Underworld. Therefore, the combination between it and Mars unleashes a great amount of intense energy onto Scorpions here, on Earth. Furthermore, this planetary combination generates traits of the Scorpio people: motivated, aware, and penetrating. Scorpios are known for being hotheaded and for easily losing their temper, so it is recommended that you give them plenty of room.
Scorpios are graced by the element of Water. This correlation with the Water element is what makes those born under the Scorpio sign highly emotional, yet not open to show it. These people prefer to hide their emotions, even to repress them. Try not to annoy a Scorpio in any way as they can be quite vindictive. However, they’re never manipulative, preferring to address issues directly, in a logical manner. Those born under the Scorpio Sun sign are passionate, powerful individuals, qualities which always serve them well in their everyday life.
Scorpio people like to be part of competitions both at work and in their free time. This is one of the reasons why Scorpios love sports and games, especially extreme ones which truly challenge them. Of course, an opponent is needed in such competitions because it makes it all the more engaging and pleasant for the Scorpio. In terms of colors, those born under this sign are all about powerful red shades and dramatic blacks. As for their love life, Scorpios change considerably in terms of patience and attitude: they are gentle, devoted, and caring towards their life partners. Also, Scorpios are passionate lusty lovers, characteristic which tends to cause them problems with their reproductive organs.
If we had to sum up the key strengths of the Scorpio, then they would be passion, determination, and motivation. They don’t accept defeat and they never quit, reason why they usually achieve their goals and get their tasks done efficiently.
