You enjoy beautiful things of high-quality as your senses are particularly attuned to shape and texture. Your sensitivity towards spatial dimensions and skill in creating beauty lends to an artistic talent that can be expressed in many forms. You may find yourself working in fields of design, decorating, writing, music, or various craftworks. This placement also bestows attractive vocal abilities that you can use to diffuse difficult circumstances. Both your way of thinking and your way of speaking lead to harmonious outcomes. Diplomatic solutions in tense situations come naturally to you. You may also find yourself doing well as a salesperson of arts or of aesthetically pleasing items. You instinctively know what colours would work well together and what sorts of musical chords are most pleasing together. In the case that you are not artistically gifted, you will have a fondness for the arts and creative ventures in general. Your charming personality, subtle humour, and polite mannerisms make it easy for others to get along with you and people generally enjoy your company. You make an excellent mediator when someone has been slighted or can be a calming presence during challenging debates. When your emotions are triggered, you will analyse them before acting and it is likely that you think your emotions or feel your thoughts as you are unable to separate your mind from your feelings.
You can be unwilling to entertain another persons point of view, preferring to hold tight to your own. Objectivity may also be difficult for you due to self-centredness. You enjoy communicating to others about all the things you love, think, or feel but are disinterested in hearing about other people. You are witty, with a sharp mind and a hunger for knowledge and new stimulation. If you are unable to experience novel situations, you become disinterested in your life; consistent mental stimulus is imperative for you. You are well able to convey your views and can be adept at persuading others, though you need to apply a greater focus while listening to people. Often you are trying to figure out what your next point in the conversation will be and miss out on what was said. You run on a high voltage and may develop little nervous habits. Finding an outlet for your anxiety by use of your hands may alleviate this nervous energy. In addition, try to focus more on what other people are contributing to the situation rather than being immersed in your own talents.
You believe in yourself and in your skills to achieve the things you set out for, feeling that you are capable of withstanding any challenge you should encounter in your life. You are ready and able to overcome whatever you need to in order to survive, even if this means changing your own tendencies to do so. A strong will coupled with great discipline promise that you will rise to great heights. You have an excellent ability to persevere against all odds and can be quite resourceful as well. These skills are put to good use when you make the necessary alterations to the outdated systems in your path. You will fight for justice, whether for yourself or when you see others being treated unfairly. You are a leader with a superb capacity for managerial duties. Others turn to you when they need guidance and you put them on the correct path. Very dedicated, you go after your objectives with complete focus, intensely moving forward in an almost obsessive fashion. Those who skirt away from their troubles tend to rub you the wrong way as you are inclined to see them as weak and find it difficult to give much weight to their views, concerns, or to them as a person. You firmly believe that your fate is what you make it and hold others to the same standard. Very perceptive, your intuition quickly picks up on the truth of a situation. You are aware of the destruction that pessimism can cause and therefore passionately and diligently work to unravel these thoughts, applying the same conviction and purpose that you would with everything you do. Those around you intuit your strength and capabilities, treating you as though you have already reached the top.
You are spontaneous, responsive, and innovative with an active vitality and ability to make confident decisions with ease. The mundane daily schedule of life is unappealing to you and if forced to endure this monotonous ordeal day in and day out, you are likely to feel trapped. You need something to be happening, something new and different, especially if it is a type of activity where you can express your agility and well-timed pace; relaxation may be a challenge for you as you require being constantly active. Much of your energy may come from the high-strung nerves you possess and the internal restlessness you feel regularly. You strive to be a part of projects that require reforming a system or changing tradition somehow. Highly self-sufficient, you dislike having to answer to anyone and need a great deal of space to get into whatever tickles your fancy at the moment. You are often the leader in whatever endeavours you start on, providing inspirational guidance to those working with you. However, you are not one to listen when others try to advise you; you feel you must go through the situation yourself to comprehend it fully and then come to your own conclusions and observations, even if this can be destructive at times. Previous life karma is good and you have been able to keep your temper and impulses relatively balanced. Continue on the path you have started in your past; your intuitive nature serves you well. You can be rebellious when given instruction, however you also sense when it is important for you follow without causing issue. Though you work to create change, you are keen to observe when the price of change may be too high. You have a magnetic personality that draws others to you and when you lead, you do not do so because you are power-hungry but rather because you have great insight into what is likely to happen and how best to maneuver the situation to succeed. Often your life is full of unexpected and rather strange circumstances, though you do not mind having to handle them as you are always up for enhancing your abilities.
Your positive attitude and jovial personality attract others and aids you in your success. A confidant demeanour draws good fortune to you. You strive to grow in wisdom, using philosophical interest to guide you. This placement bestows protection, though it may not come until right in the nick of time. You are energetic, excitable, sociable, cheerful, and lucky. You are likely to acquire monetary comforts with this placement. You dream big, though do not need to fight hard to make your dreams a reality. You tend to be giving, warm, dependable, genuine, truthful, and full of idealism. Your moral values are particularly strong and you believe in being fair and acting honourably. Petty displays are not abided by and you would never disgrace yourself enough to reach that kind of low. You attempt to develop self-discipline and awareness through spiritual means, particularly religion or philosophical studies. Past life karma is strong for you and favours you in many ways due to your caring, generous deeds towards others in a previous life.
You are romantically idealistic and often will fall in love with the idea of someone rather than for who they actually are. Your tendency is to believe someone is your perfect soulmate, incapable of doing wrong, which leads you into becoming disillusioned when they inevitably disappoint you. It is very difficult for you to recover when this occurs. It would be most beneficial for you to take time to get to know someone with both of your eyes wide open, before coming to any conclusions about them; the same is true about the world at large. Your idealism in regards to what relationships should be like tends to create conflict for your real-life partnerships.
Another possibility in this placement is having dreamt up some perfect imaginary partner and searching for this person your whole life, not realising that no one could ever measure up as this person could never realistically exist. Your spirit is wrecked when the day comes that you finally understand that your fantasy is unattainable. Rather than seeking someone that fits in with your fantasy, look instead for someone that, while flawed as all humans are, can still be a great partner for you. Idealism is great as long as it is tempered with realism. Strangely enough, while you can be very romantic and daydream about the adventures you may have with your soulmate, you find it difficult to actually commit to any relationship. You are often elusive in regards to romantic endeavours and insincere to both the person involved, and yourself.
Caution must be taken not to be drawn into an unhealthy partnership where one person is far more dependent on the other or where one gives too much of themselves or sacrifices their well-being just to appease the other. Equality in a partnership is crucial and you should not feel like you need to save the other person or that they must consistently aid you.
You are particularly reactive to your environment and prefer being in a beautiful, harmonious place where you can foster your creative talents in some way. You are naturally drawn to artistic things or people. You possess an otherworldly allure that people find captivating. Sensuality in all forms attracts you, as does anything out of the norm or which requires you to use your keen intuition. Love situations do not exactly fill you with security. Your delicate nature may be difficult to handle sometimes but you must do your best to push forward. Try to be understanding that everyone has their shortcomings but it does not always make them unworthy of pursuing. Do not expect your mate to know what you are thinking at all times, but rather explain to them the inner workings of you. It is not a sign that they do not care for you when they are unable to read your thoughts; express yourself directly.
A lesson for you to learn in this life is how to change your worldly beliefs into spiritual wisdom. You may find material assets falling away unexpectedly without explanation to show you that the material things you own are unimportant; the experiences you have during your life, and the wisdom you gain from them, are the only things that will matter when you are leaving this life. Develop your ability to care for others without expectations, forgive them their foibles, and let go of any resentment you have built up. Do not be bothered by small issues, though take care not to be stepped on by going to the other extreme and becoming far too accommodating. You are prone to escapism through substance abuse when life becomes hard for you to handle. Rather than avoiding your troubles, roll up your sleeves and face them. Only then will you find the inner strength you had within yourself all along. The more you tackle things directly, the easier it will all become.
You feel that all creatures on this earth are somehow connected to one another. Self-improvement and the betterment of the world in general, are important to you. You feel easily inspired in ways to bring about advancement and improvement of both yourself and humanity as a whole; you want to change the world. It is likely that you possess a good deal of motivation to accomplish some sort of permanence. Learning and keeping yourself well-formed is imperative to you and you are always searching for truth. You often share this passion for knowledge with others and may become an instructor. Striving to alter the environment for the better, you prefer holding high status as this will help you achieve this goal. Try to pay more attention to other peoples ideas and beliefs, rather than closing your mind to them right from the start. You are not always correct, nor should you try to be.
You naturally appreciate other people and accept them for all that they are, nurturing them, and nullifying any of their insecurities. People love you because you are kind and make an effort to show that you pay attention to the little things others may miss. Female company is particularly easy for you to bond with. You feel a deep sense of satisfaction from channelling your emotions into creative endeavours of any kind. You crave beautiful surroundings that are both luxurious and harmonious. Often, your living quarters reflect these values. You are very polite, courteous, and refined in your presentation and you feel uncomfortable around those that are rude, tactless, or rough in their mannerisms. There may be a tendency towards overindulging in rich cuisine that needs to be monitored. Escapism is also a possibility. You dislike hard work and will shun doing anything you deem as laborious. Others are drawn to you because they intuitively feel that you genuinely have their best interest at heart. You love being around people, and they love being around you. This may give to a career dealing with the population on a grand scale, perhaps in publicity. You enjoy having, and caring for, guests in your home and welcome people with open arms. Your charming manner and giving nature make you the perfect entertainer of visitors. Emotionally you are stable and secure, overcoming a previous craving to be possessive when you care deeply about a person.
This aspect presents you with a chance to attain a higher reasoning in spirituality by self-sacrifice and working diligently to aid others. You will be able to put your necessities on the back burner to do what needs to be done for those loyal to you and this kind of service is happily done by you. You can easily combine your idealistic views with realism in a fantastic way. You will often remove your emotions from a situation so that you may finish what youve started. Any dream you aspire to, you will put forth a great deal of effort to accomplish. You are able to get by on mere scraps when you feel it is needed to achieve your aim. Imaginative applied artistry is your specialty. This aspect implies that the native is protected spiritually by karma from a previous life where they had aided others.
You have a great deal of ambition and drive to succeed, but you often doubt yourself. You lack confidence in your abilities and are unsure whether others are going to respond to you positively. You have no faith in yourself to overcome lifes obstacles which is why you often work yourself to the bone trying to demonstrate that you are worthy. You are highly insecure and are scared that you will fail. Often you cling to the things you have because you feel that somehow they will be gone tomorrow. It is hard for you to bond with others as you tend to keep your emotions bottled up. Instead, you attempt to purchase peoples love and loyalty. However, that is not possible; you need to acquire this with a genuine connection. How can people see the wonderful things within you if you cannot see them yourself? Your insecurities are so pronounced that when you are close to someone, you require them to consistently reassure you that they care for you, leaving the relationship strained in the end. Perhaps re-think your idea of what it means to be emotionally secure. Deep down you believe that you need to be someone else so that people will accept you or care for you. Many times you feel as though you are the odd one out in a group situation and will act cold and reserved, when the truth is that it is actually very important to you that you are involved equally. Due to your sensitivity, you are likely to wall up and refuse to let anyone in instead of facing the possible hurts and vulnerability that may surface by opening up to someone deeply.
Being cautious and keeping yourself closed off emotionally makes it a challenge to form a bond with someone. Taking time for yourself to reflect and work on personal growth can help you become stronger emotionally as well as allow you to feel more secure, however you need to defeat the tendency to view isolation as rejection and the lonely feeling that comes along with that perspective. You are prone to feeling anxious, irritated, and depressed at times. It seems as though somehow life always throws a wrench in the works when you are trying to achieve something. You may feel like the universe is working in opposition to your best efforts and that you alone must do the heavy lifting for humanity. You are not living this life by yourself, there are others around willing to help you and care for you if only you would let them in. In a past life, you expressed your feelings in an open and loving manner and were cast off because of it. Now you are scared to try again, instinctively believing that somehow you will be disregarded and hurt once more. Your perspective on how to become emotionally secure is incorrect; it is not about others and what they do or dont do, but about how you see things. Despite your cool, reserved demeanour, inwardly you are very caring and crave to love and be loved. Of course there is a chance that your feelings may be harmed, but that is part of life and each painful experience can help you grow if you allow it to.
This placement stands out amongst the others as it has a particularly strong influence. At your best, you gain wisdom by going through something yourself, as even when you do something wrong the information you have gained will carry you. During the most emotionally difficult times in your life, you find a way to rise back up; nothing can keep you down for long and you persevere through your challenges. You are greatly aided by the mental drive this placement bestows.
Your emotions vary wildly and it is anyones guess as to when or why they will alter. Very self-sufficient, you abhor being restricted for any reason. You are drawn to everything that is unique, strange, or shocking, though you tend to jump from one thing to the next without allowing yourself to master any of it. You are unable to restrain yourself yet it is often the best thing for you. You seek out thrills, variety, exciting adventures, and feel like a zombie if forced to do the same thing day in and day out. Fresh concepts and ideas are like air to you and you are enthused to involve yourself in them. Sometimes you can rush in too quickly, and perhaps carelessly, particularly in regards to your romantic partnerships. You rebel when you perceive your freedom will be curtailed somehow. It is difficult for you to stand by your word as you never know if your emotions about the matter will change tomorrow, 5 years from now, or not at all. Everything is done spontaneously. There is a tendency towards acting selfishly and putting yourself first above all. The situation at home can be volatile and the bonds you form with females are as well. Try to think about your feelings before expressing them without warning. People are often confused about where they stand with you because one moment you are cold and the next sociable. Sometimes you will consciously keep yourself at a distance as you are worried that getting close to people may somehow limit your independence. Your spirit needs to be allowed room to roam as it may. For personal growth, you must find a way to subdue the emotional chaos that lives within and surfaces at random. If your feelings are negatively triggered, you can react irrationally or recklessly. This careless activity causes you to be prone to accidental injury. You feel tense when you are inactive as your nervousness needs an outlet. At times you will do something odd just for the shock-value. Your need to be unrestrained can make it challenging to settle down in one location or with a partner. As you are prone to angry bursts, it would be best if you developed a way to hone your patience.
This placement can create a few alternate possibilities as you will either be prone to breaking the law, be too afraid to take even sensible risks, come to be extremely co-dependent on others, incorporate severe power-hungry tendencies where you try to rise at all costs, have uncontrollable violent outburst, or be lazy, deceitful, disloyal, cruel, cold, intolerant, ruthless, spiteful, odd, or a threat to others safety. You are plagued with internal strain and are constantly fighting yourself as to whether you wish to act dutifully or be free to do as you may. There may be trouble with collaborating with others, as this causes you great tension. This tension may be a result of your desire to please others when youd rather be doing things differently or from not wanting to do what you should be doing. It would be easier if you would get your duties out of the way as quickly as possible so that you may concentrate on the things youd rather do. Anger is easily triggered in you and you can become quite difficult with little warning. It is imperative that you learn to accept others for the unique individuals that they are, as this is only fair. Try to foster forgiveness and let go of past slights. Find a way to release the pent up feelings you carry inside slowly rather than exploding uncontrollably when you cannot keep them in any longer.
Your memory is superb and you can quickly recall previous moments in time and all of the details involved, including other people. There may be talent in teaching or speaking to the public as you put forth a great deal of emotional energy towards communicating your thoughts. You value education and try your best to gather as much data as you can, attempting to always be in the know when it comes to progressive advances. You would also make for a good therapist because of your excellent listening skills and your non-judgemental attitude towards peoples troubles. People feel nurtured by you and you inspire them to believe in their abilities. You pick up on the subtleties and the unspoken words others have trouble communicating outright, allowing you to convey outwardly the things that will truly help people. Try to make it a habit of writing down your experiences and responses, as this can allow for some personal growth when you look back on them in the future. There may be a skill in linguistics. Mentally you are logical and your thinking is not muddled by your feelings as your mind and emotional state work together harmoniously. Often times, it may seem as though you are speaking other peoples thoughts as they are thinking them, or sometimes even before they are made aware of them, as you are highly attune to other peoples emotional energy. People take comfort in this ability because they can be sure that you really do comprehend their situation. You are able to use the written or spoken word to express your thoughts and the concepts you have created in your mind. All forms of communication appeal to you, as does travelling. You prefer your life to be full of changes and various new experiences so that your mind has something to contemplate and there is always something new to express or feel. You may wish to try your hand as a writer due to this placement bestowing clarity of mind.
You full of get-up-and-go! This placement contributes to a healthy body and mind. You know how to assert yourself when needed and you confront your troubles head-on, in a clear manner. Rather than sulking about the difficulties you encounter, you concentrate on eradicating them. You are unsympathetic when you hear people complaining about their challenges without putting in the necessary effort to fix them. Through the obstacles in your life, you have discovered how to channel your emotional energy and cravings into productive endeavours instead of letting them tear you apart. You are rarely sick and when you do happen to catch something, you recover rapidly. People gravitate towards your enthusiastic nature and the vitality you exude. You are brave and capable, allowing you to feel confident participating in strategic risk-taking. You easily attract potential romantic partners because of your gregarious demeanour.

The signs describe in detail how the actor might react, behave or conduct themselves.
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.

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.

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.

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.
You are warm, considerate, amiable, positive, balanced, and socially pleasing. You are a wonderful companion to your mates and are gifted at making others feel cared for and at ease. While you are quite the people person, you are also very logical and rational, with good decision-making abilities, if only you could make up your mind. You enjoy artistic pursuits, especially that which may incorporate music; you may be interested in working as an entertainer. Social relationships are a necessity for you and you abhor any sort of conflict, especially emotionally. What you long for is harmonious interactions where you feel things are evenly balanced. You dislike manual labour and prefer to stick to white-collar professions. At times you may sacrifice things that are important to you just to keep the harmony or you may become elusive, where others cannot seem to get an answer from you one way or another; indecision can become a major problem for you. Inwardly you may be at war with yourself although you do not let others see this. Coming to a conclusion about something is challenging because you easily comprehend the different angles of each situation and wish to be just to each consideration. Be sure that you uphold your own values.
You possess an extraordinary ability to focus and may find yourself completely engrossed in your projects. With natural investigative skills, you enjoy having to decipher complex problems. The topic of sex or death may be a mental theme for you, as you are often preoccupied with carnal desires or physical fascinations of any sort. You are strongly intuitive and observant, and may need to acquire knowledge through your own practice rather than relying on traditional educational methods. You may thrive working in the field of manual labour as you can do well with mechanics. Healing others is another avenue in which you may find success, especially with something involving your hands. You are capable, witty, insightful, clever, astute, and will often speak your mind bluntly and forcefully. Sarcasm and dark humour are right up your alley. You employ a double standard with others where you will keep your own thoughts reserved while leaving no stone unturned on your quest to discover other peoples secrets. You are exceptionally perceptive in comprehending the complexities of human nature and of any challenge presented to you, especially when you must plunge into hidden depths. However, you are not without your faults and can be argumentative, contrary, inflexible, doubtful, sarcastic, suspicious, and wilful. Mystical subjects may appeal to you.
In a romantic partner, you are most interested by someone who can increase your personal development in some way, especially your perception or awareness. You prefer your love interest to be out-going, adventurous, full-of-life, and open-minded as you would like to experience all that life has to offer with them, especially if these adventures involve travel. You enjoy immersing yourself in new cultural experiences that can broaden your horizons. It is imperative that you are able to relate to your significant other on a mental or spiritual level and you like to convey your goals, wishes, and values to them. However, romanticism is not your style and your partner may find you a bit too laid-back or informal, which can instil doubt of your intentions towards them. Nevertheless, you are still apt to be idealistic about romantic feelings. There is a tendency towards feeling that the grass is always greener somewhere else and this may keep you from staying with a partner for the long haul; it will be helpful for your partner to keep up the excitement that is felt in the early stages of a relationship or to be able to help you expand your mind, as these will hold your interest. You are compassionate, caring, giving, and a positive thinker with an inclination towards religion which you choose to convey through humanitarian or philanthropic efforts, together with your loved one.
There is a well-developed sense of pride. You have a desire to achieve and be admired for these achievements, or for the person that you are. You like to be the winner, the one at the top. You dislike anyone telling you what you should be doing or to remain behind the scenes. You want to be seen and will often create drama in order to make sure that happens. You may arrogantly declare you are correct in every situation, as you dislike being wrong. You are driven, diligent, aggressive, dynamic, inventive, and full of energy; competition is highly appealing to you. Life may seem like one big game to be won. You seek praise and value honesty and acting in accordance to ones moral standards; nothing less is acceptable. Though you are extremely self-assured, there is a chance that you may feel insecure and self-protective, possibly acting abrasive, if your confidence is challenged. You are spontaneous, eager, motivated, and energetic. Once you have decided on the object of your desire, you will stop at nothing to win them over; displaying great passion and enthusiasm. When you have something you wish to express, you do so, no holds barred. However, be careful not to act foolishly and carelessly where money is involved; gambling can become an issue for you. You can also become touchy, confrontational, and possessive. Keep an eye on your heart, as this area of your body is particularly sensitive. Be sure to get plenty of exercise as this will release some of the excess emotional energy before it manifest in an unhealthy way.
You are caring, harmonious, out-going, empathetic, and care about your country and fellow man. There is a tendency towards idealism and you are fascinated by spiritual or supernatural concepts. Your observations and conclusions regarding finances are top notch and it is likely that you will acquire a large amount of wealth and assets after your middle years of life. You may also receive a great deal of aid from your family, particularly your parental figures. However, be mindful of a tendency to indulge in food and drink as this will cause weight gain as you age. Success will not come to you when you are young, but rather in your later years. It is also possible that you will become overly sentimental with your material assets, clinging to them and hording them away from others; try to curb your intense emotional reactions.
You are driven, disciplined, and orderly. While working, you can be very diligent, effective, and willing to wait as long as is necessary to reach your goals. Being dependable is important to you and you are likely to take a more serious approach to life in general.
