October 23 to November 21
The Glyph is the written symbol for Scorpio. The three lines represent the three levels of consciousness. The first representing the lower mind – the scorpion, the second representing the higher mind – the eagle and the third – the phoenix. Therefore Scorpio actually has three symbols for their sign but the most recognized symbol is the scorpion.
Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac and is a negative, fixed water sign. Fixed signs are the organizers of the Zodiac. Scorpio’s ruling planet is Pluto, the sign which rules regeneration and rebirth, but now that Pluto is no longer a planet, astrologers will have to reassign Scorpio’s planet. Scorpios are secretive, passionate individuals. Their tempers smoulder just below the surface. They possess great inner strength and determination. Scorpio, being a water sign, can be highly emotional, but they always display a calm, cool exterior.
Scorpios have a need to be in control of most situations. If you receive a compliment from a Scorpio you can be sure it is genuine. Likewise, if you ask their opinion, you will get the honest truth. So be sure you are prepared to deal with the answer before asking a Scorpio what they think. Scorpio’s bravely face the battles in life, whether they are sickness, poverty, or pain.
Scorpions are loyal to a fault, but only after you have proven that you are worthy of their loyalty. If you tell them a secret, they will never reveal it. Scorpio’s are quick to acknowledge any kindness bestowed upon them and will repay it tenfold. However, the same applies to a hurt or injustice caused to them or their family. As with the deadly scorpion’s sting, Scorpio’s will find a way to get even with their enemies. Scorpios can be jealous and possessive with their partners. They want to be the only one in their partner’s life. To the Scorpio man or woman, true love is worth any sacrifice. A sure way to score points with a Scorpio is to give them your undivided attention. Hang on their every word, but don’t fake it, because they will know.
Physically Scorpio, like Libra, tends to put on weight. Scorpio’s of both sexes have intense, striking eyes, with a gaze that frequently makes others uncomfortable. Most Scorpios have broad faces and predominant noses. Usually they are fair skinned, but some possess a dark brooding appearance. Scorpio’s regularly have broad shoulders and a strong physique.
