Dates – When are Scorpio People Born?

Scorpio is the star sign of anyone born between October 23 – November 21. This fixed water sign is determined and passionate and they do not allow anything to stand in the way of their goals. Scorpio is an unusual astrological sign as it is ruled by two planets, Mars and Pluto.

Mars represents Scorpio’s ambition and desire to succeed while the more subtle Pluto represents the hidden forces that lie beneath. The Death card equates to Scorpio in Tarot and this is closely associated with the influence of Pluto in this astrological sign – first comes death and destruction, making way for rebirth and growth.

Temperament – What are the Characteristic Scorpio Personality Traits?

Scorpio is ruled by the element Water and the symbol for this star sign is probably one of the best known of all star sign symbols – the stinging and dangerous Scorpio! Belonging to the Water element, Scorpio’s deep, passionate nature is often compared to a deep well which can contain the source of life (the good Scorpio). Yet, we know that water can be easily polluted and when it is, it can be a source of disease and destruction (the bad Scorpio), influenced by Pluto. Think of that very famous Scorpio, Marie Antoinette.

Since Scorpio is associated with the sexual organs, it is said that this star sign is driven solely by the physical. While it is true that Scorpios are magnetic, intense, mysterious and charismatic, there is much more to them than that! Those born under this astrological sign can never be accused of being a shrinking violet! They are masterful, self-confident, extremist, inspirational and dramatic.

Of all the star signs, Scorpio must find an outlet for his or her excessive mental and physical energy. If they don’t, then the demons within – jealousy, violence, rebelliousness, anti-social behavior – emerge and lead to a deep unhappiness. Finding ways to use their awesome powers, their creativity and intelligence is the only way to counteract these negative qualities.

Compatibility – What Sun Signs are Most Compatible with Scorpio?

The destructive planet Pluto has a major influence on Scorpio when it comes to love and relationships and jealousy is the scourge of Scorpio’s life – or perhaps we should say, of their partner’s life! Those born under this star sign are passionate, loyal and sensitive. However, even though being loved by a Scorpio can be exciting and intense, that very intensity can also kick up a storm! Not only is this sun sign jealous of potential threats from the their partner’s (imaginary) admirers, but they may be equally jealous of anyone, including work colleagues, friends, or anyone whom their partner comes into contact with in their day-to-day life.

Scorpios are private people and do not particularly enjoy being part of a crowd. They feel much more comfortable in small, intimate groups of people they have known for a long time. When someone born under this astrological sign sets their cap at a member of the opposite sex, they leave no stone unturned until they conquer the object of their desire! And, since their good looks and sensuality make them pretty much irresistible, they are rarely disappointed. The other water signs Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio are great matches but Taurus and Scorpio make a pretty fiery and dynamic duo.

Work – What is the Best Career Choice for Scorpio People?

There are very few areas of work where Scorpio will not succeed but there are a number of careers where they excel. Scorpio thrives on mystery and intrigue and they have an innate curiosity, all of which makes them brilliant detectives, private investigators or researchers. As it happens, Scorpio also make pretty good criminals, an example being the notorious mobster John Gotti, who was Boss of the Gambino crime family in New York City.

Science and technology is another area where this star sign excels and it’s no surprise to hear that Bill Gates, the most famous computer entrepreneur in the world, is a Scorpio. Scorpio is also the sign of big business and you will find many people born under this sign wheeling and dealing in the world of high finance, working as stockbrokers, investment bankers, tax consultants and industrialists. Scorpio loves to be in control, so running their own business is always a good option.

Wellness – What Health Issues do Scorpio People Have?

A build up of tension, together with high levels of physical and mental energy, can have an impact on the health of Scorpio. This makes it particularly important for this star sign to take regular exercise but care should be taken not to overdo things as intense exercise can trigger hernias.

The part of the body ruled by Scorpio is the sexual and reproductive organs. Men born under this star sign should check the genitals regularly and should not hesitate to seek medical advice if they have any concerns. Overall, Scorpios are robust and have strong constitutions but blockages, both physical and physiological, can cause a number of minor conditions, including constipation. A healthy high-fiber diet and lots of water is the best way for Scorpio to stay healthy.
