Ah, you deep and dark, sexy and mysterious Scorpios! Have you ever met a prudish Scorp? I really don't think I have. You just can't help but exude something a little taboo. Those of your sign tend to be passionate and single-minded, capable of depths of emotions. You need intensity the way flowers need rain. You have a sharp mind and - sometimes a sharp tongue. If someone can't see the obvious, staring them in the face, you want to whip back the veils of illusion, to improve their view. You want to go to the heart of every matter and you won't shy away from the truth just because it's not exactly what you or others want to hear.
You're a Water sign and ruled by Mars and Pluto. As I've mentioned many time in many columns, the fact that your ruler Pluto was demoted to being a Dwarf Planet is immaterial to you. Pluto is the dark side of your nature - your shadow self. Having Pluto 'less visible' works for you - you get to be just that little bit more covert and even subversive.
And yes, like the Scorp stereo-type say, you are sexy, because sexiness comes from being real - and that's something that comes naturally to you.
Scorpio also rules detectives, undertakers and sex workers, by the way. Please don't take offense! It's just that you can be like a detective - going deeper and further into the shabby and shady alleys of existence, where lesser souls fear to tread. Undertakers? You are less afraid than most others of the concept of mortality. In fact, it may even fascinate you. And sex workers? Scorpio rules sex, and not just the love-making side of it!
You love what is hidden - you want to uncover it. And you also love to hide. Careful not to succumb to the temptation to bury the truth!
You like to be alone, with your thoughts, as much as you like to share others' company. You are enigmatic and truly mysterious. Yes, you have that famous sting in your tail, but you are also a healer. Spending time with a Scorpio is rewarding. You may not always show your friends and lovers the 'sunny' side of life, but with your ability to handle extremes and your capacity to feel profoundly, you teach the rest of us a little more about what it means to be human - dark side and all. Try not to be obsessive, though. Learn to forgive and forget where possible. And allow your watery side to carry you along life's ebb and flow.You're not interested in the superficial which is why your relationships run so deep. You relish privacy and can take a secret to the grave. You have oceans of tolerance inside you, which is why people love to be around you. You accept what others find unacceptable. You make it OK to be scared. You don't shy away from the shadow - rather you quest for truth. You're not interested in skirting around tough subjects and - if you are truly, madly, deeply Scorpionic - you may even be blessed with magical powers.
