Scorpio is not only the eighth sign of the astrological year, they should fall into the ranks of the eighth wonder of the world due to their many characteristics, skills and dynamics. They are one of the most spirited and forward thinking zodiac signs in just about everything they touch, say and do, but their opinion is known for reaching the highest degree of extremes. They are moody, passionate, sensitive, and intense. They have a way of transforming any situation if they feel the need.
Scorpio's are born in the fall months, starting on October 24th and running through November 22nd. They are the one and only sign that is truly contradicting. They are masters at juggling opposite ends of the spectrum of independent and clingy, loving and cold, authoritative and weak. Their entire makeup if summed up in one word would be, "intense." Scorpio's can be your best friend or your worst enemy. They do not choose their enemies, but once you cross a Scorpio beware of their "stinger."
Understanding a Scorpio is not easy. They are mysterious by nature. They are also dark, moody, jealous, and intriguing. They are naturally inquisitive and one of the best detectives on planet earth when it comes to figuring out humans. Scorpio's are deep thinkers, which give them the upper hand when it comes to critical and creative thinking. They are governed by the universe in a unique way that only they can understand.
Scorpio children are likely to be argumentive, gloomy or depressed. The adult Scorpio has a tendency to be outspoken, aggressive, dark, sarcastic, and teetering on that line of trouble when the occasion arises. Scorpio's will always fight for what they believe in. This tendency sometimes brings them misfortune and accidents that are like magnets. Their explosive tempers often times cause them fatigue and health issues.
Being a October, Scorpio married to a October, Scorpio. I am the first to admit that the Scorpio woman can be demanding and a complete mystery while the Scorpio man possesses a secretive nature that often requires space, yet he somehow manages to remain close to the love of his life, often times in an obsessive nature.
Scorpio's are natural leaders who are both charming and direct. They get straight to the point on every matter and situation. Scorpio's can see through people and situations, and they instinctively know when they are being duped and bullshitted. This type of character is abruptly dismissed from the tough Scorpio's realm of acceptable things.
Once a Scorpio makes a promise it might as well be written in stone. Devotion, commitment and achieving the promise will be at the top of their list. Devotion and leadership skills are part of their makeup and letting someone down just does not resonate with the energetic and powerful Scorpio.
Regardless of being mysterious and secretive by nature, they are adamant about loyalty and motivation. They will do whatever is necessary to fulfill a promise unless they are wronged. At this point, their stingers come out, complete with confrontation, maliciousness, distrust, and stubbornness.
Scorpio's are often times misread due to their ability of hiding emotions which often comes off to others as uncaring or cold which is far from the truth. Scorpio's care and love deep and hard, often times leading them into depression or moodiness when that love is not returned.
Scorpio's have a tendency to be direct and honest. Their sharp tongue does not always settle well with those who are passive and closed off. This revelation either pleases those around the Scorpio or it keeps them at arm's length due to the fear of objective opinions. Their intensity and contradictive nature are something of a mystery. Scorpio's natural inclination is to dominate and control those around them, and their ambitious nature tends to make people tired, simply from watching them in action.
Direct confrontation is first and foremost when it comes to dealing with a Scorpio where serious matters are concerned. Fake, dishonest and less than honorable humans don't even come close to holding up to this sign's high standard where telling the truth is concerned. Scorpio's hate liars.
There is no room for them in their life simply because they have no understanding of a person who doesn't come to terms with reality, sincerity or the facts. People who sugar coat the truth have no place or room in the life of a Scorpio.
Scorpio's are highly sexually charged, more so than any of the other eleven zodiac signs, primarily due to the fact that they are governed by passion and stimulation. Lover and Scorpio are words that are virtually synonymous. Intensity, fantasy, sensuality, sensitivity, creativeness, and an a fire that cannot be easily put out are all of the things that surround the sex life of the strong and very real Scorpio.
Scorpio's best matches are with other water signs. Cancer and Pisces tie for tops, but two Scorps together can be considered a relationship masterpiece when the two come together in a virtual meeting of the minds, but when these two fight, it is the fight of the century. Scorpio's are loyal and expect the same in return. Deception, lies and a lack of understanding does not set well with the intuitive and sensitive Scorpio.
Scorpio's have a tendency to be emotional, especially when problematic situations hit close to home. A Scorpio parent can be overprotective with their children, but at the same time they understand a child's needs for independence. Passion is one of the main traits of this intense zodiac sign and a hot temper follows closely behind when they have been crossed or scorned. Scorpio's are true believers in, "karma is a bitch."
Scorpio's possess a love of travel and experiencing unique, new and amazing things. Road trips are a favorite pass time for them and they are quite adept at traveling on a budget while still experiencing the best of things as if it were a trip for the rich and famous due to their creative nature. On the other hand, Scorpio's have no problem hiding away in the comfortable surroundings of their humble abode. After all, home is where the heart is. A romantic night with their favorite companion is always on the top of their list of excusable reasons to stay in for the night.
Scorpio's are dedicated and will spend countless hours on a project or event that is near and dear to them or their loved ones. Success is important to this sign. Powerful emotions are a part of the Scorpio makeup and they are progressive thinkers and powerful where emotions come into play. Charismatic by nature, Scorpio's are generous, kind and filled with empathy, but they can turn on a dime when crossed by deception that is invasive, provoked or just plain mean in nature that has no cause.
Senseless acts have no place in the life of a Scorpio. They are content with reasoning that makes sense. Rude, thoughtless and significant actions that are hurtful to helpless forms of life is totally unacceptable. The true Scorpio is a master at hiding their true personality that is often times littered with emotional baggage, but they are skillful at digging out deep, dark secrets of those close to them because they naturally read people and their actions, making them mind readers of sorts.
Making people feel special fits the profile of a true Scorpio. Most of this is due to their sharp intellect and understanding that acceptance, love, friendliness, and kindness are the purest form of human nature that connects us as humans in the way that God intended us to be, and Scorpio's are deeply in tune with nature, the universe and all of the things that depend on it for survival.
Scorpio's are amazing communicators with a flare for idealism, originality, sensitivity, and an understanding of scarred remnants in individuals. This comes from the knowledge that most humans carry baggage that has often been compartmentalized into a place that does not allow for release. The Scorpio comprehends this vital need for letting the hurt out and putting it where it belongs.
The Scorpio & Scorpio long term union: Being married to a Scorpio is something of a mysterious ride filled with passion, romance and intensity. They are loyal, driven, jealous, intense, dark, and attractive. Life with a Scorpio is far from boring. They are spontaneous, adventurous and loving, but they can also be closed off, secretive and malicious when they feel that they have been treated unfairly.
Scorpio's are highly aware that they are stubborn. It is just a part of their self-confident and arrogant nature. They are forever on the lookout for psychic connections in everyone that they meet, and when you combine two Scorpios together, you will always end up with a few stingers, but getting past this, there is an undeniable strong psychic connection when they give in and just let it happen.
Scorpio's love the unknown, paranormal, unexplained phenomena and death included. People are naturally drawn to Scorpio's due to their charismatic, flirty, open-minded, and open approach to any and all subject matter.

It has been my experience that Scorpio's wake up at random times through the night and the dream vividly. The average Scorpio is a bit paranoid and they don't particularly like being told what to do, but will if it is a means to an end. They have a natural ability of being sarcastic, silly, hilarious, cynical, and risky in just about every circumstance and event that they encounter.
Scorpio's are extremely good investigators.Their need to know approach makes them the perfect person to ask questions that others would shy away from fear of crossing boundaries. Scorpio's are direct and get straight to the point, often times coming across as overbearing. They are ruthless when it comes to getting to the bottom of a situation.
Colors, Days & Numbers: Red, violet, maroon, black, and smoky shades are the perfect colors for the Scorpio due to the allure and sensual nature of the dominant hues. It is known to bring them luck when in the right situation. Lucky days for the Scorpio comes down to the days when Pluto is ruling the heavens. According to the "PsychicLynx," lucky days occur at different times of the week: http://psychiclynx.com/astrology_013.html
The eight zodiac sign is ruled by Pluto and co-ruled by Mars. Pluto was the lord of the Underworld and the overseer of death, the ultimate transformation. He was the deity who presided over the subconscious and mysteries in general. We see his influence in Scorpio's natural push to investigate, probe, and define life's deepest, darkest corners.
They are the most resourceful of the zodiac signs, depending heavily on their intuitiveness and creativity. For the Scorpio this is a God given gift. They are prone to addictiveness, obsessions and anger issues, but readily forgive, are naturally intelligent and giving to anyone who needs a shoulder to cry on. Scorpio's will literally give the shirt off of their back if they feel that someone truly is in need of it.
Gemini and Scorpio are not the best suited match even though for some this will be a suitable union. Their mutual love of change could be the deciding factor that keep's them going strong, but the dark and depressing days could lead them to a place of no return and a desire to move into a better place. Scorpio's have a tendency to feel broken, so they are always seeking people, places and things that make them feel wanted and somewhat ordinary in the eyes of what most people expect and see as standard or usual.
Scorpio and Leo are not the best match for a long term relationship due to the fact that Scorpio has a habit of being controlling. When you mix that with Leo's demanding ways and you wind up with a relationship doomed from the start. You will see in your Scorpio Love Horoscope that you tends to be secretive. Depending on how high Leo is positioned in society, Scorpio's secrecy can be destructive to Leo.
