Profile & Characteristics — According to the ancients, there are many variations of Homo Scorpius. This is testimonial to their well recognized complexity. The scorpion symbolizes a hotheaded warrior who is violently passionate, bluntly sarcastic, egotistical, controlling and manipulative. The soaring eagle symbolizes the calm but intense, focused, determined, intuitive and perceptive Scorpio who often develops healing, clairvoyant, and counseling abilities. The sacred serpent, an Egyptian emblem of cosmic wisdom, was grounded in earthly reality, but penetrated the higher levels of consciousness. The serpent periodically sheds outworn habits, beliefs, and illusions to facilitate growth through rebirth. The phoenix is the confident, courageous, positive transformer that transcends the personal ego. The sympathetic, generous dove, a natural healer, is infused with love, which it transmits to others.
Scorpios likely will experience all the traits of their sign’s varied symbols to some extent through the psychological death and regeneration process. Contrasts and extremes of virtue and vice are imbedded in every Scorpio, waiting for employment or transcendence. It can be a difficult journey or a blissful one depending on their choices. There’s no middle-of-the-road playing around with them. Their feelings are very strong and unyielding, and they can be extremely sensitive and willful. It would be good for Scorpios to work at being cooperative.
Love & Feelings — Scorpios are secretive and don’t establish bonds until they’re sure of others’ trustworthiness. Then, they loosen up and reveal their keen insight and fine sense of humor.
They approach love emotionally and dream of fairy tale romance. They want to be with someone who’s artistic, spiritual, inspiring, helpful, peaceful, idealistic, refined and perceptive.
Scorpios might meet their type in the theater, museums, nightclubs, hospitals, prisons, chemical labs, spiritualistic churches, at sea, the beach, the pool, dance events, aquariums, gas stations, film or photography studios, retreats, or even in shoe stores.
Sexual Behaviors & Performance — Sexually, Scorpios tend to be tops.
They are lustful sexy animals. They enjoy biting and sucking and they are masters at oral sex. Inflicting pain turns them on, so their partners shouldn’t be surprised if their nipples get pinched. They like sex in the water, but almost prefer sex on wood tables, hard floors or satin and silk. Their erogenous zones: gently tauching the neck and ears and that will get them going.
They are inquisitive and experimental. Bottom Scorpios know that eroticism consists more than the physical act of lovemaking. They tend to look proper in public and behave like whores in the bedroom. Controlling orgasm is very important and will try anything to help their partner maintain their rhythm. They never take no for an answer and if interested in someone, they will pursue them with determination and guile. They love lubricant gels and vibrators.
Health Characteristics — Inner conflict can get Scorpios down psychologically and physically. If Scorpios suppress upsetting personal issues, they can build up and become toxic to psyche and body. That could affect reproductive organs, digestive system and head area, including the eyes and sinuses.
Scorpios should find outlets to release tension and renew their spirit. Music, dance, exercise, yoga, meditation, acupuncture and nature visits, especially to the ocean, can help alleviate internal chaos and restore physical equilibrium. When feeling like withdrawing, some emotional turmoil deep within probably needs to be addressed and worked out of the system. It may be time to shed some skin.
In The Work Place — Scorpio can be good organizers and leaders, because they enjoy pioneering new projects, have the foresight to make long-range plans and can direct them to the finish.
Patience, tolerance and compassion are the keys to their success. Scorpios could find satisfying work in the martial arts, police force, armed forces, surgery, dentistry, alternative healing, psychic counseling, psychiatry and mechanics. Working in the entertainment industry could provide an excellent outlet for thier creative or artistic abilities.
