Scorpio Qualities and Characteristics
Being a Scorpio, you are quite shrewd and astute and even intensely revengeful in cases, you are not the right person to cross. You are the symbol of courage and power, and this is certainly accompanied by foresight, intelligence and power, along the freedom that this power provides.
Your vision gives you the power to see farther than your comrades and opponents. And this provides you with the power to strike down those you oppose you, figuratively. Adventure lures and you and finds you wherever you are, and this intrinsically makes you a leader, as you dare to tread where no one else dares to go. You have a great stamina, and as I talked about, you are a deadly adversary.
You expect total loyalty and sincerity from your friends, as you give the same to them and you are not that easily deceived, because of your superior vision. You are brilliant and tactical in your business, but run the risk of appearing, and even being deceitful and surreptitious. You are quite dedicated and sensible, but still in some known or unknown way, you tend to yourself in jeopardy. But still, you will succeed a lot in life, and also make a lot many enemies in the process, but they are innocuous and only cause anxiety. You receive cooperation from your coworkers and subordinates and satisfaction from your family.
Qualities that make you lucky are will power, positive, political, and courageous. Qualities that hinder your success are possessiveness, dominating, jealous, and cold-blooded.

The first thing you will notice about a Scorpio is his/her forceful and vigorous nature. So if you cut open a Scorpio, I mean metaphorically, you will find a very intense source of energy. It will be like looking at the sun – you can’t look straight at it, or get too close. This source is what drives the Scorpio, and he/she uses this energy in whatever way he/she finds most satisfying. Now, as it is said, with great power comes great responsibility. There is a great need to channelize this energy in the right direction. Otherwise, things are bound to get disastrous.
This high-energy state is also of an emotional nature. People who are in this state tend to get overly aggressive. That is why half the books written on Astrology have special chapters allotted for explaining the Scorpio’s sex drive. This is a great asset as well as a great liability. Not many can keep up the vigor and enthusiasm in their sex lives the way Scorpios can. But as I have said, there is the destructive side. And one of the first signs of this side taking over is denial and withdrawal. The Scorpio stops taking active interest in things, and grieves inside. The usual intense and vivacious expression is replaced by an introvert, brooding-within-oneself one. When inquired, the Scorpio will be the quickest at denying about having any sort of issue, before resuming to the same old routine.
This is where the role of friends and parents is so very important. Another issue at the core of the Scorpio is his/her secretive nature. A Scorpio will find it the hardest to share his/her problems and sorrows with anyone. So if you are the Scorpio’s friend, it is most important that he/she takes you into confident. Otherwise, your friend will not divulge anything and keep going in the wrong path. Parents should take good care of their Scorpio child and make sure that all that energy is put into something worthwhile and productive.
Scorpio Friendship Compatibility
As a Scorpio, you will hold on to your friends with the maximum possible diligence and effort. You sure like entertaining people, so you will go to great lengths to make sure the friends are never bored or out of things to do. You will make great efforts in arranging new events and community activities where all the people you know can mingle with each other and have fun. You are not the kind of guy/gal who would want to sit in front of the TV and watch sitcoms, or enjoy a delicacy or a new kind of wine all alone. You have an enormous appetite for collective enjoyment, and you will leave no stone unturned in satisfying this need to live life to the fullest. And what’s more, you will make your friends indulge in such activities all the more.
But with the Scorpio’s energy comes it’s violent sting. They tend to get irritated when others don’t share their enthusiasm and eagerness. And they show fits of anger, sometimes in the most sensitive of moments. Other than that, you might experience pangs of jealousy when you see two of your friends getting along without including in their fun. Quite a few things to handle, but you have to! These are not at all healthy for friendships that you wish to last long.
So you might wanna sit back and let things be as they are once in a while. Accepting things as they come to you is not as bad as you think, because the issue is that in other people’s perspective, you tend to overreact to situations. If you are too involved in the friendship, and sometimes put too much effort into it, then your friends are not responsible for not being just as into it! And that surely does not give you the right to offend them. So it might do you a little goo to tame yourself, and be considerate of others’ feelings as much as you can. You have a great heart and everyone knows it, but make the most of it.
Scorpio in Love and Romance
This sun-sign signifies one very distinct human quality – fierceness of intent and sense of purpose. This is displayed amply in the way Scorpios go about their love lives. And this diligence and effort can, most of the time, be seen as trying to prove one’s love to oneself or one’s loved one. This need for reassurance is quite good as long as it acts as glue keeping you close to your wife. But when that is not the case, it can get really frightening for the partner. With great power comes a great need to control that power.
And the same can be said about your sexual drive. You are very passionate about your loved one, and don’t miss a single opportunity to express that passion physically, which is greatly welcome. But say you are away from him/her; is it possible for you to keep all that sexual energy pressed within you until you see him/her? If not, you are calling for some real trouble. Sure you might not go the length, and nothing might happen, but how will you deal with the feeling of guilt that will be rooted within you? And let’s say for a moment that you will deal with it and turn out all right. But will you be able to accept the same kind of behavior from your partner?
The answer to that question is a resounding NO. Jealousy is a very ugly feeling, and it looks ugliest when it is harbored by a person with such a strong personality as you. This jealous, possessive nature has destroyed many happy relationships. While even the other person’s smallest interactions would be viewed through a spectacle of doubt and jealousy, your own misadventures will be wrapped in secrecy. It would be quite good if the partner can see through all this shortcomings and love you for what you are. But be as it may, it would really be good for you to try and check these tendencies, if only to make your companion’s life just a little better.
Scorpio in Marriage
There is probably no other sun-sign that is this demanding when it comes to marriage.
The Scorpio is willing to put any amount of effort into making the marriage not only work, but also give unparalleled happiness and emotional support to both. For example, a male Scorpio will work day and night accumulating wealth in order to equip the house with all sorts of luxuries and necessities. In case of a female, she would work hard at keeping the house spotless, and provide her husband with all sorts of care and comfort.
But what the Scorpio will hate more than anything else is an attitude from the partner that does not match with his/her. He/she wants someone who will match him/her in every sort of way. A person without the strength of character and vigor that they have is not acceptable to them. And this goes on to the sex life – they do not like the partner to show disinterest. And even when they do it, they want the partner to be passionate and creative just as they are.
All of this is just the result of the kind of plans that the Scorpio has for his/her married life. But there is the possibility of overdoing things, like slogging long hours in the office while the wife passes time in loneliness at home. This is bad to any relationship.
And the only thing that is worse is jealousy. I just cannot stress enough on the need to control this feeling. It can crop not only out of suspicion of the spouse’s sexual relations with another person. The jealousy may be directed even at the spouse himself/herself – say if the spouse is more successful than you are at your career.
Scorpios are excellent parents and don’t just let their children grow up and learn – they teach them stuff, not in the classroom kind of way but through outings and other fun stuff. They also expect a lot from their kids and do not let them settle for average grades. The kids, nudged and encouraged in this way, inherit quite a lot of the independence and vigor of the Scorpio.
Scorpio Career and Money
By now I am sure you get the kind of atmosphere in which the Scorpio makes it big and gives his best.
They need to be given every sort of challenge that can be thrown their way, not just because they like being busy, but because they need to be stretched beyond the limit. They get easily bored with a job that they think is not good enough or hard enough for them. These heavy demands urge them to achieve new heights, and even if they don’t, at the end of the day, then can go to bed with a sense of having made progress. The kind of challenge they face can be physical, intellectual, or just emotional.
The problem on this front is that it is hard for them to switch their brains off once they are done for that day. This is especially a problem if the work is of an intellectual kind. In such a situation, it will not only be hard for them to devote their attention and energy to personal and domestic issues, but also to rest and make the most of opportunities that may come their way the next day. So this all immersed kind of devotion to work is quite good, but it should not allow one to take one day’s problems on to the next.
So Scorpios are good at coping with routine, mundane jobs that place heavy demands on you on a daily basis. They give high importance to discipline and precision. But this can also bring a sort of routine in their work, thus making it difficult for them to find adventures in their lives, even though they are quite welcome to the idea. So when it seems that the Scorpio is getting into a rut, the colleagues and superiors must help him get into something daring and adventurous, just for a change, so that he/she can maintain that vitality. Power is very important for the Scorpio, and they are extremely comfortable with it. They might misuse it on occasions, if just for the fun, but when they are serious and firm, they can be the most efficient.
