Sun in Scorpio
The sign of Scorpio
is symbolised by both the scorpion, and the eagle. The scorpion signifies giving in to a lower, more animalistic nature where the focus is on satisfying inner desires without thinking of the penalties of doing so. They have yet to achieve enlightenment and are forced to live their lives via instinct. Scorpions are clever and patient, waiting for the perfect moment to strike their opponent. Eagles, on the other hand, are able to soar above lowly enticements as they have conquered their cravings through regeneration.
Scorpios are driven, effective, brave, capable, and instinctive (learn about compatibility with Scorpio here
). In contrast, they are able to be envious, cynical, inflexible, vengeful, bitter, and possessive. Scorpios are always up for a challenge and can put forth immense focus and dedication when needed. They would do well in all fields requiring investigation, as they have an affinity for uncovering secrets.
A Scorpio can usually achieve any goal they decide to undertake as they have incredible will-power and perseverance. Mentally they are reasonable, intuitive, aware, motivated, observant, strategic, investigative, and magnetic. They tend to have strong views and can be very stubborn about changing them.
Scorpios tend to form social connections with ease and are exceptionally loyal to them. In their friendships, they will want to be aware of the persons intentions and future expectations, without revealing their own; they prefer to keep their aims a secret. However, they will make immense sacrifices for the people they care for. They are exceptionally protective of those they love, treating any perceived threats as if they were directed at the Scorpio themselves. Due to this extreme empathy and protectiveness, they may lash out at others through either words or physical actions.
A Scorpio is instinctive on a gut level and may not always be able to control their reactions; this makes them seem illogical when criticised. If they feel they are being threatened, they can use dark humour or become eerily quiet and uncommunicative, using either as a weapon. Their communication can become malicious, though they may insist they are only teasing. Just like the Scorpion, they can be very patient when waiting for the opportunity to get even with someone. It would be best for them to learn how to let go of past hurts instead.
Not much gets passed a Scorpios radar and it is unlikely they will be easily fooled; they are remarkably perceptive in regards to other peoples intentions. Due to the fact that they read others so easily, they will usually decide quickly what they think of someone, often to an extreme, and their opinions can be difficult to alter.
It is important for a Scorpio to develop adaptability as when they decide on a path to take, they find it tough to modify. Scorpios will not enjoy shallow subjects in general and prefer to delve into the depths of whatever situation they find themselves in. They crave intensity. Every action they take must mean something to them and they will want to be lost in their endeavours; they never do anything halfway.
A Scorpio will not engage in an action that they cannot fully throw themselves into, they either put in everything they have, or nothing at all. Every interest is investigated thoroughly, this extends to romantic interests. They need to understand every nook and cranny while revealing little about themselves. Though it may not be apparent, Scorpios are continuously dealing with extremely intense emotions and cravings internally. The immense emotional energy is the very reason they are able to persevere in trying circumstances. However, they may at times crush others while fighting their wars. Most will either see them as heroes or scoundrels.
Scorpios believe they must be self-accountable and can be quite hard on themselves; administering their own justice which can be quite harsh. They are independent though may be insecure and they will not enjoy being the centre the attention nor will they search for praise. Their health is good in general, though they must be mindful not to overindulge in sensual pleasures, including rich cuisine.
Romantically, Scorpios are faithful, loving, and express their affections readily. However, they may also be possessive and try to dominate their partner. They crave an all-encompassing love where they can be completely bonded to just one person.
