Just as Scorpions love to torture their pray before actually eating or killing it, Scorpios also tend to hold their grudge against a person and thinking and plotting about how they can get their revenge, rather than show indignation or anger. They are also natural explorers. To them, what is hidden is more fascinating than the obvious. They are also strong men and women, not the ones to shy away when they are pitted against potentially mighty opponents.
But they often do not stab in the front. Instead Scorpio star signs wait for the most opportune moment and then strike out when you least expect them to. In spite of this, Scorpios also exhibit a good number of positive virtues. They are diplomatic, intellectual, intuitive, resolute, engaging, sensitive, and spiritual. Despite their strength, Scorpios are regarded as one of the passive astrology signs in the zodiac. They are also known egoists, but this is not to say that they don’t have a humanitarian side to them.
Scorpio as a Water Sign
Scorpio is a prominent astrological Water sign. As with all other water signs, they are just as highly emotional, which can vary in depth from shallow to deep, depending on the situation they are confronted with. And like the ocean, Scorpios hold many secrets, and they have a mysterious air about them. They will often hide their true emotions behind a seemingly unaffected composure, but you must never mistake them as harmless. Scorpios are scheming beings, and they might already be devising a plan against you if you cross them.
Positive Quality of Scorpio
If in love, Scorpios are the most loyal people you will ever come across. They are very strong-willed, and will do everything in their power to achieve their goals no matter what it takes. They will sacrifice everything for the man or woman that they love, but they can also be possessive with their loved ones. Others are easily drawn to them by their magnetic personality. Many describe them as born leaders being the dominant personalities that they are.
Negative Quality of Scorpio
Scorpio zodiac signs are possessive to the detriment of their own relationships. They get jealous very easily, even for no good reason. They obsess over small and insignificant things. They are headstrong and manipulative, molding things and circumstances to favor them even if the actual truth is otherwise. They are also quite moody and lose their temper and reason very easily, so they experience disagreements and miscommunication often. It can also be difficult for them to trust other people straight away.
Traits of Scorpio
Dominating: Scorpios are very dominant personalities in both their personal and professional life. They are strong and powerful, traits evident in their leadership. Malicious: Scorpio signs make great buddies, but terrible enemies. You can be sure that they will hit back and sting you with their venom “tit for tat”. So think twice before you mess with Scorpios, just as you would with the scorpion insect. Attractive: Generally speaking, the individuals born under the star sign of Scorpio are physically attractive and nearly all of them have magnetic personalities. This is the reason why people are easily drawn to them. While this helps in making them good leaders, they are prone to ego problems if it gets into their head.
Temperamental: Scorpio zodiac signs are temperamental, changing moods ever so quickly that even their close friends and loved ones find it hard to predict their mood. If it changes for the worse, others around them would choose not to mingle with them during that time. Stubborn: Scorpios truly are stubborn, for better or for worse. If they want to do something, they will accomplish it by any means. This quality is what makes them successful. On the other hand, if they have set their minds against something, one can convince them otherwise or change their minds one iota.
Traits that differentiate Scorpios from other star signs in the zodiac are their extreme passion and loyalty to their friends, family, or lovers. They love very fiercely, and are extremely helpful and generous as long as you do not hurt their feelings. Scorpios also have a magnetic personality. They are entertaining and intelligent speakers who can hold your attention for extended periods of time. They are witty and charming, making them very enjoyable people to be around.
Scorpio astrology signs are revengeful and vindictive, never forgetting a slight or offence that easily. They can hold onto grudges for a long time and wait patiently for the right moment to strike back. Scorpios avoid frontal attacks, and would rather scheme and manipulate things, people, and their environment with planning and cunning in order for them to achieve their goals.
Scorpio zodiac star signs are shrewd and intelligent, which enable them to excel in any trade they choose. Their desire to uncover the hidden makes them the detectives of the zodiac, and can do very well as detectives and investigators. Scorpios also have great insight and can make good spiritual healers and holistic doctors. Their shrewdness also allows them to be successful Prime Ministers and political leaders.
The Scorpio Scorpion
People born from October 23 to November 21 fall under the star sign of Scorpio, symoblized by the stingy and mighty scorpion. Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, and most astrologers consider it an introvert feminine sign. Researchers find studying Scorpio particularly interesting, because their nature is so diverse. They are both interesting and dangerous. Some astrologers classify Scorpios into three categories:
Poisonous: Vengeful and downright evil, they will hold a grudge for the longest time and live to plot their revenge and execute it at the timeliest opportunity. Noble: Reasonable and selfless. These Scorpio signs have learned how to balance their instinct with rational thinking and are likely to react more appropriately to offences done to them. Lizards: Scorpios who are classified as lizards are mostly harmless, but can be dangerous at times, if they want to. Judging their true intentions can be difficult.
