The Sign of Scorpio is an Autumn Sign, relating to a gray and rainy period. The days are getting shorter and shorter, and it seems that the Sun wants to hide, as does the animal symbol of the Sign. The scorpion is an animal linked to the symbolism of darkness, death, but also of the future rebirth. Darkness and shadowiness are part of the character of those born in Scorpio, but they are not as dark as has often been claimed. If anything, the main characteristics of the natives of the Sign are strength of character, combativeness, psychophysical energy. Scorpio is ruled by Mars and Pluto: the former is the Planet of fighting force, the latter is the Planet of depth, genius, arts and commerce.

The Scorpio man
Intelligent and full of charm, he is never banal. He is a born fighter and a keen observer: he is shrewd, able to understand the weaknesses of the opponent, and never gives up. He is ambitious and individualistic; at work he is able to concentrate, is tireless and gives his best if he is independent and can manage himself. He works well even if he has tasks to do, as long as he doesn’t feel constrained or commanded. If he has employees he is feared because he always expects the best. He loves comforts and conveniences, loves spending and does not easily accumulate earned money. He has many interests and hobbies to pursue. As a friend, he is faithful, loyal and generous. It has a sometimes cutting irony. In the relationship with the opposite sex he loves conquest, although he does not experience love as a game, but rather with deep involvement. Romantic and passionate, tender and aggressive, is the Scorpio man capable of making you fall madly in love? but if the relationship is monotonous sooner or later he gets tired, and then he will look elsewhere.
The Scorpio woman
Passionate and sensual, self-confident and aggressive, the Scorpio woman is certainly a demanding woman! He is intelligent and often makes sharp judgments.

With friends she is sincere and helpful, and she is protective with them too, but she doesn’t tolerate being wronged. If it is the case, gladly accept the fight and try to win at all costs. She is gifted with creativity and artistic sense. Love luxury and comfort. As a partner she is dangerous: she wants a strong partner, otherwise she tends to subdue him. After the conquest, she tends to get tired of her partner pretty soon and look elsewhere, unless she finds one who understands her and is really up to her.
