The Sign of Scorpio in Astrology
The second level of the Water element (fixed water), ruled by Mars and having Pluto (Hades) as co-ruler, Scorpio symbolizes the conflict between spirit and instinct, death and desire. It is a sign that rules the darkest and deepest depths, but also the highest heights. At this stage, the Being is concerned with an emotional development that goes beyond the Cancerian’s concern with family ties. Scorpio’s emotional involvement is based on the control and understanding of human emotions and the role they play in the mysterious process of the cycles of life and death.
The astrological symbols of Scorpio are the scorpion and the eagle, which represent the potency and reach of the capacity for power, observation, regeneration, and control. The eagle represents the ability to regenerate and achieve great deeds if you can master his temptations. The scorpion, however, represents the side that has not yet grasped the power of thoughts and actions and still gives in fully to its basest desires and whims, intensely satisfying the most urgent passions regardless of the consequences.
There is a great depth, intensity, and passion involved in the Scorpio energy, wrapped around themes such as transformation, regeneration, sex, and death, a sign often represented by the phoenix, a mythological bird that rises from its own ashes. At this stage, the Being finally came to know itself as an individual and matured in Libra. In Scorpio, it also wants to contact others, but in a much more intimate way. It needs to discover what is hidden in the other, it needs to experience the transformations that the relationship with other people brings - it needs to satisfy its deepest desires. It seeks to understand and control human emotions and discover what role they play in the mysterious cycle of life. Ingenious, curious, and investigative energy, Scorpio is truly fascinated by the way the wheels of the universe work. The relationship with other people will expand the concepts of the Being in Scorpio, or else lead it to deny its fellows.
It needs to be in control and can challenge everything for its survival to the last consequences. It can defy even death itself, and this statement is precisely the inner birth of the sign. Not being afraid of death or going to the last consequences makes Scorpio transcend, intensify and rescue the primordial meaning of death, which is transformation. Surviving and possessing are the guiding principles of the Scorpio sign, which happens through an irrational, blind, almost animal force at times. Mars’ impulsiveness finds in Scorpio its most intense, stubborn and potent, and intense introversion form. It is also energy with high regeneration power.
Considered the “Hidden Door of the Zodiac”, Scorpio connects two distinct dimensions, it is the gateway to the third and last level of the zodiac. When Scorpio’s conflicts are resolved, the being flows and is at peace, the resistance ends and everything harmonizes. Accepting its inevitable destiny, Scorpio achieves its eternal survival and reaches another level of its consciousness, returning the Being to the Intelligent Order of the Universe, accepting life without reservation. It is an energy that is involved in the most complete processes of change and transformation, clearly understanding the cycle of destruction and reconstruction, of life and death.
“I desire”, “I explore” are Scorpio's mottos and its luminous side is energetic, magnetic, independent, intense, and courageous. Its dark side is stubborn, destructive, arrogant, manipulative, and needs to emotionally suck. The persevering becomes destructive, the deep becomes obsessive, and the powerful one becomes an emotional vampire. Balancing these energies means achieving truth, serenity, emotional balance, self-control, confidence, and clarity of purpose.
To you, Scorpio, I will give a very difficult task. You will have the ability to know the minds of men, but I will not give you permission to speak about what you learn. Many times you will feel hurt by what you see, and in your pain you will turn against Me, forgetting that it is not Me, but the perversion of My Idea that makes you suffer. You will see so much of men as an animal that you will often fight the instincts in yourself. You will lose your way, but when you finally return, I will have for you the supreme Gift of Purposes and Intents. And Scorpio returned to its place.

What Astrology says about Scorpio.
Although always involved in some way in everything that is hidden, interesting, profound or mysterious, not even Scorpios spend their whole lives reflecting on such things, although they have a special talent for psychology and research. They are endowed with powerful intuition, great personal magnetism and tremendous awareness of human nature. With more restrained, internalized and intense feelings, a Scorpio’s energy is externalized through their solar archetype with great obstinacy.
At first glance, they prefer to conduct their objectives in a secretive, intense and focused manner, controlling (or manipulating) the things around them. The sincerity and openness of a Taurus find in Scorpio their antagonistic energy. Scorpios can often be attracted to what is strange and hidden, generally being more observant, curious, resourceful and investigative individuals, fascinated by the way things work. Their recovery powers can also be remarkable, and they can learn to use them to help and inspire others to also be able to regenerate when needed.
The lives of Scorpio natives are made up of many stages. If at any time they are at the bottom of the well, it is there that they are most likely to find their powerful regenerative abilities. They have extremely powerful wills and rarely fail to get what they want in life. Their desires move and stimulate them, but once conquered, they tend to lose interest in the fruit of desire, an attitude that is shared with Aries by the division of their ruler, Mars, who thinks that hunting can be more exciting than what has been conquered.
They know how to say “no” like anyone else and move on without looking back when they have in fact decided. They often find it easier to control or manipulate others than to dominate themselves, even though this is true of human beings in general when they have power in their hands. And Scorpios can have a lot of affinity with (and desire) for power at its various levels.
On the surface, Scorpios may seem easy to deal with, but they can be extremely obstinate people with a tendency to control others. The keys to their success are willpower and the ability to get to the bottom of the things in which they are involved. Give a Scorpio a difficult task so that, if he feels motivated, he will be able to complete that mission regardless of any difficulty that may arise.
Naturally suspicious, when they want answers, they persist until they get them. They want to know everything and, when they do, they can remain mysterious. When things get out of balance and they do not get their way, they can be jealous, sarcastic, spiteful, stubborn, possessive and vindictive, using their cunning to attack when least expected. They generally like what is difficult, impossible tasks, jobs that require continuous effort, determination, investigation and concentration. They have a good ability to plan ahead.
They generally have very well-defined opinions. Such opinions can be so rigid that, at first, nothing and no one makes them change their mind. They like to know what other people's plans are, but because of their secrecy, they do not want them to know what they are planning.
They also tend to be capable of making extreme sacrifices for those they love. If any of their loved ones are being threatened in any way, they feel that they are also being threatened and this causes them to attack instinctively. In general, they need to learn to forgive more. It is often more difficult to deceive a Scorpio, as their strong intuition allows them to understand and grasp other people's internal motives and their potentials. It is this notion of capturing human potential that often increases their distrust. They know, instinctively, what they (and the other people) are capable of, for better or for worse.
In their goals, once their course of action is defined, it is difficult for them to change their focus. Very trivial things bore them and they prefer to delve into something specific rather than several other things superficially. They have an immediate reaction to things and people, be it love or hate, through powerful instincts, and they want to feel absorbed in what they do. They make a strong first impression on others: who like or dislike them right away. Middle ground is definitely not for them, either something is or it is not!
There are strong emotions and desires working under the Scorpio’s surface. Sometimes, in their internal battles, they step on other people along the way, so they can be classified as either great saints or great sinners. They consider themselves as their own judge, jury and executioner and, sometimes, they punish themselves. They rarely want to appear or be the center of attention. Due to the regenerative context of energy, they are generally healthy, but they may overeat with food, drink and sex.
In terms of love, they are loyal and like to show affection, but have a tendency towards possessiveness, jealousy and control of their loved one. They tend to be happier and more satisfied with a partner who knows how to nurture a constant emotional and sexual link. They have a soft side that they keep very well hidden and there is an innate need to connect with another person on a more intense and deep level. But to achieve this, they know that they need to let the other person succeed, at some point, in seeing that softer side so as not to scare them off. The problem is that with this comes the fear of revealing their sensitivity and losing control, becoming vulnerable and this is one of the internal conflicts that they must deal with constantly.
They are quite good at keeping calm in emergency or crisis situations. Having a Scorpio as a friend can be an asset to help with finances. They are great at managing resources and, when they like someone, they are captivating and very loyal. When they make friends, the friendship is usually very solid, because they can see when the friend is not well and needs that strength of theirs. But if honesty is lacking or the Scorpio feels betrayed, friends become enemies a little more easily.
How to become a better Scorpio?
- Do not be so adamant;
- Be more confident;
- Be less jealous and possessive;
- Control your impulses;
- Avoid being vindictive;
- Remember that not everything in life can be all or nothing.
What to expect from Scorpio men?
As a controlling personality, Scorpio tends to be fearless, even being able to choose careers that flirt with danger, in addition to being obstinate. Being more reserved and intuitive, they may spend much of their time alone, but they can prove to be true friends. But not of those types who are brown-nosed or lean on them, but the kind who keep what they have done and give back at some point. However, they can foster both sympathy for and aversion to people, as they love extremes. If they believe that someone has upset them, they can hold a huge grudge. Nor do they forgive an offense so easily.
Scorpio are always evolving, so their lives are made of ups and downs, where they are always reborn and reinvent themselves, no matter how far down they may fall. Building and rebuilding are watchwords, whether in their professions, personal lives or relationships. It is the energy of rebirth in the most varied scales. They tend to get headlong into love relationships. Since they are intense, they can also be mysterious and arrogant. They are influential and can manipulate and modify people through their psychological, persuasive and magnetic power.
However, the reserved manner of Scorpios goes down the drain in love, as they are incapable of hiding their emotions. They demonstrate their feelings and cultivate solid love, but without furies, always in their own fashion and calmly. The only outbursts they may have are jealousy, possibly followed by implicit claims of revenge if they detect betrayal. Driven by sexual motivations, they tend to compulsive desires, which can cause them to get involved in relationships that are sometimes inappropriate. They have incredible willpower and self-control to fulfill their desires and goals. Platonic love is considerably difficult for Scorpios, as they much prefer love that is more physical and intense.
What to expect from Scorpio women?
Fascinating, magnetic, mysterious and with a certain sensuality, a female Scorpio tends to be fearless and never lets herself be controlled or conditioned by anyone. Always looking out for her desires, her plans are calculated in a crafty manner. They fear exposing themselves or opening up completely, for which reason they are more reserved. They can almost read your mind and want to know your secrets, but they do not reveal much about themselves. They are masters at hiding emotions and reactions, but if their needs are suppressed, they can become possessive, envious and vindictive.
When they are upset, they get hurt, but a little affection and ego massage are usually enough to calm things down. But anyone who thinks a Scorpio woman is naive is mistaken. Naivete and ingenuousness are not words in her dictionary, so it is not easy to deceive her. When she gets involved in a relationship, she wants it to last and will do anything for it. She is usually loyal to, supports and defends her partner. Infidelity is usually not part of a female Scorpio's menu, so when her partner gets involved with someone else, she can be devastated. But only for a little while, because soon she rises from the ashes and starts all over again. That same determination is applied to her relationships. She can move worlds to make her relationship work.
