Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac. It carries an aura of mystery, power and obsessions. And, for a good reason. Many Scorpio natives are obsessed with whatever is hidden, covered or mysterious. They usually exhibit an image of power, only to mask their incredible sensitivity (in my opinion, they’re the most sensitive of the zodiac). Nevertheless, these qualities can make them excels in underground activities like spies, detectives or everything that has to do with hidden Earth (geologists, etc).

They’re capable of great deals of efforts and patience to reach to their goals. Stubborned, focused and always “en guarde”, they’re somehow uneasy to live with. But, as the insect which is used as symbol, once you’ve been touched by a real Scorpio, you will never forget how it was. Their interaction is deep, their nature ruthless (as the two ruling planets, Mars and Pluto, implies) but the results are ever lasting, and, although in the beginning it may hurt a lot, in the long run the outcome is always good.

The most important quality of a Scorpio, though, is not its toughness, but its incredible capacity to transform their lives and, ultimately, their environments. Their approach is never direct, but it’s very effective. Sometimes power struggles and manipulation are plaguing the native, but, for him or her, these are just means to an end. When badly affected, this end can be evil, that’s true, but when positively affected by supporting aspects, they can be truly revolutionizing forces in their circles. Not always well remembered, but always respected for their will, determination and loyalty. Also, Scorpio holds the record for being the sexiest / sexual sign of the zodiac.

Scorpio rules the eighth house of the zodiac.
