|Who keeps an arrow in his bow,
And if you prod him, lets it go?
A fervent friend and subtle foe ??
It is the Scorpio
The ruler of Scorpio is Pluto.
Prior to the discovery of the
ninth planet, Scorpio was ruled by Mars, which is still considered co-ruler.
The sign of cosmic purpose, Scorpio is considered to be the success
Self contained and self centered,
concentrated Scorpios usually succeed in whatever they set out to accomplish.
Scorpions are known for their
intense and powerful natures. They
are willful, proud and calm with an electrifying undercurrent of seething
intensity. Purposeful and animated with force, they project a magnetic
personality. Scorpio does nothing in half measures. An all or nothing
attitude permeates their entire life. When fixed on something or someone,
the scorpion perseveres. Scorpio never settles. Life is meant to be
lived to the fullest or not at all. Scorpio will rarely be found in
the center of activity, but will always know just what is going on of
concern to him.
Their tenacity and willpower
are enviable, their depth of character
and passionate conviction admirable, but it is their deep sensitivity
that makes them the best and most loyal friend. This same quality makes
them the most treacherous of enemies.
When they harness their
abundant energy constructively, their self-confidence tempered with
shrewdness, and their ambition coupled with generosity toward others,
they excel at whatever they undertake. Scorpios are demanding of others,
but never ask someone to do what they would not do themselves. They
can be fanatically focused and work till they drop.
Scorpio imagination and intuition
are excellent. They possess refined critical perception and strong
analytical ability. In addition, they seem to demonstrate a natural
healing power. These abundant gifts allow Scorpions to penetrate the
most profound subjects. They are serious folk, but quite charming
to people they like, and when social events call for it. On the positive
side, they are hard workers and are willing to help others as long
as they are willing to help themselves.
Main positive traits:
Motivated, passionate, resourceful, investigative,
Their sensitivity, and pride allow
them to be easily hurt, quick to feel insult or injury, even when none
is intended, and easily roused to heights of anger. An angry Scorpio
is a sight to see. Scorpio seethes, and doesn't give it up. Their tragic
flaw is their immense pride. Once wronged, once Scorpio's pride has
been diminished, the game of courtesy is over. Many Scorpios possess
a suspicious outlook, and need to know the reasons behind everything.
Main negative traits:
Intolerant, violent, jealous, resentful, distrusting,
Their inner intensity can
result in the ice-cold restraint and detachment of the surgeon, the
concentration of the research scientist and the heroism of the soldier.
Any profession in which analysis, investigation, research or dealing
with the solving of mysteries are present appeals to Scorpio. Their
secretive natures make them natural detectives. Police, espionage,
the law, physics or psychology are attractive professions to the Scorpio.
As writers and orators they
excel. The Scorpio character
is the one you see up on the podium delivering fiery speeches. They
succeed because they communicate the power of their convictions.

Alternate Stone is Citrine .In
ancient times, it was believed that citrine could bring a sense of balance
and well being to the wearer. It should be cleaned in warm soapy water
with a soft bristle brush. Citrine can fade in the sun.

Advise for the Scorpios
Your worst fault is you are too
adaptable to the people with whom you come into contact. Having an ambition
is the only thing that can save the Scorpios. As a rule they go through
a great deal of trouble and often privation in their early years. Heart
is their weakest organ and they should take care that it is not overstrained
in work or exercise.
Origins in Mythology
Look towards the constellation
Scorpios, and you shall see one of the greatest stars visible to the
human eye. There, at the very heart of the great scorpion is the brilliant
Antares! This red giant, is some four hundred times larger than our
own sun. Such intense energy burning at the center of this distinct
constellation corresponds well to the driving passions which rule over
those born in this period.
In Scorpio lore the placement of
the Eagle in polarity to the Scorpion is very important. Most Scorpios,
if they dare be so revealing, would confess of an ongoing internal
conflict between two distinct aspects of their nature. For individuals
with a strong Scorpio influence, this may feel sometimes as a civil
war of the self. This is not an abnormal psychological state.
Scorpios are a mystery to humanity, shrouded in fear and misunderstanding.
Left to their own, they are comfortable in the low lying realms of the
world. If provoked, however, they will strike with a deadly vengeance.
The Eagle soars. On great wings this ruler of the wind rises above earthbound
limitations. From this lofty perspective, the Eagle sees a world others
may never dream. Within the spirit of every Scorpio resides this dual
