A Deeper Look at the Sun Signs: Scorpio the Secretive One

ScorpioIndividuals with the Sun in Scorpio were born sometime between the dates of October 21 through November 22. Scorpios are a Fixed sign, which means they are practical, determined and strong-willed. They are notorious for working long and hard on their goals and achieving them. Scorpio is ruled by the element of Water. Water signs are known for their sensitivity, emotional nature, moodiness and expression. At first glance, Scorpios appear observant, calculating and perceptive. What you see is usually what you get. They are the most difficult people to get to know, because of innate secretive personality. Most Scorpios love to hear all your dirty secrets, but they rarely share theirs.

Scorpios are extremely competitive in many areas of life. They want to succeed and they work hard on achieving their goals. They are very focused and calculating when it comes to getting what they want. They have a powerful energy that oftentimes scares people away. They do not seem to mind though, because they love to feel that they are powerful.

Many Scorpios have power and control issues. They can not help this behavior, because it is the natural energy that rules them. The planets Mars and Pluto rule the sign Scorpio. Mars and Pluto are extremely powerful plants in our chart . Mars is the planet of aggression, war and violence. Pluto is the planet of destruction, regeneration and nuclear energy. Combine those two energies together and you can start to feel what it is like to be a Scorpio.

Scorpios are known for their intensity. There is something about them that causes individuals to be extremely drawn to them. They possess a magnetism that is undeniable. They radiate out an energy frequency that draws all individuals into their web. Some individuals are not comfortable with Scorpio, because this intense energy can make them feel vulnerable. Most people do not enjoy feeling like their secrets and insecurities are being observed. This is how Scorpios can make you feel.

They can make you open and tell them all your dirty laundry, but forget about trying to get them to share their secrets. Scorpios are very distrustful of others motives. They always wait and make sure that individuals are worthy of their trust. They hate to feel vulnerable and are very secretive individuals. Even with close friends who are loyal to them, they are known to withhold information. They can not help this behavior, because it is their natural energy.

When you first meet a Scorpion, you will probably notice their eyes. They have deep, penetrating eyes that appear to look right through you. They possess the gift of in-depth perception and are very intuitive. When you are around Scorpios forget about lying, because they will see the truth. It is very hard to fool Scorpios and if you try to do it, watch out because they might just call you on it. They are known to be very direct and honest when they perceive something about others. They enjoy bringing up intense perceptions and discussing emotions in detail with others. Forget about doing the same to them though, or you may experience the true sting of a Scorpion.

They do not like others to analyze them or point out their behaviors. Scorpios enjoy telling others their perceptions but they do not accept others doing the same to them. This behavior manifests because of Scorpios innate need for privacy. They are very private individuals and do not like to burden others with their problems. They will do anything to help you and try to point out things to help you grow, but they do not want the same done to them. Why? For the most part, they already know all their flaws and vulnerabilities, because they have analyzed themselves in-depth. They are usually very self-aware individuals and psychologically gifted.

Scorpios make excellent psychiatrists, counselors and healers. They enjoy digging into the realities of life that most people try to avoid. They enjoy talking about the dark, taboo, inhibited issues that most of individuals avoid. The natural energy of Scorpio is to pull out secrets and anything hidden. Much of this ability comes from the fact that Scorpio rules the Eighth house in our chart. The Eighth house is the house of secrets, death, sexuality, spirits and occultism. All the deep issues and subjects that most people are afraid of, tend to magnetically draw Scorpios.

The issue of death is usually very evident to Scorpios from a young age. One of my clients has a lot of Scorpio energy told me a story about when she was a child. Every night before she would fall asleep, she would lie on her bed and think about death. She said she would think to herself, “What if I died” or “I could die”. She would lay there and ponder the reality of her own mortality. She was only twelve years old and had never known anyone who died and her parents never talked to her about it before. She had an innate sensitivity to this issue and a deep awareness about the essence of human life. Many Scorpios have felt this way before and can appear to be a bit morbid to others who talk with them. They may tell death jokes or talk about death in social situations and everyone around them might quietly feel uneasy. Scorpios desire is not to make you feel uncomfortable, they are just being themselves.

Many Scorpios are drawn to subjects such as magic, mysticism, and occultism . These areas of spiritual life are the most secretive and mysterious and that attracts Scorpios.

Even if Scorpios do not study these things, they probably are interested and believe in them. They are born with the gift of insight and intuition that helps guide them throughout life. If individuals can get passed the intense, scary exterior of a Scorpion they will realize that they are very loyal friends.

Scorpios key word is “I PERCEIVE”. Other personality traits of Scorpio includes secretive, private, resourceful, vengeful, jealous, possessive, shrewd, calculating, deep, loyal and strong-willed. Scorpios are the hardest sign to get to know, but if you can prove to them that you are trustworthy, then you can have a friend for life.

Carmen Turner-SchottWhat can Scorpios do when the intensity they feel is overwhelming? They drive on, making new goal and achieving them with narrow vision. They can overcome many obstacles because of their determination and courage. They always bounce back from disappointment, suffering and pain because they are driven to survive. They are the true survivors of the zodiac .
