Scorpio is the second of the water signs of the Zodiac and the only one to belong to the Fixed group of signs. All those born under Fixed signs have a resistance to change. Those born under Scorpio can cope with minor change but radical change destabilises them and causes great distress. At such times they may dig in their heels and be immovable and obstinate. It takes the Scorpio person time to develop trust and to commit to a person or project. Yet their quest is to do precisely this. . The Scorpio person develops high levels of concentration and is focused and determined in the pursuit of accurate information. They make excellent researchers. Their persistence is often masked by great charm. They are able to persuade others to reveal darkest secrets or hidden documents. These are then in safe hands. The Scorpio rarely abuses such privilege. Only when crossed or feel that a truth should be exposed to the benefit of others will they do so. The true Scorpio has a wicked sense of humour. Satire and cartoon-drawing is a perfect medium for them..


People born under Scorpio abhor waste and are adept at recycling. One consequence of this is that they can build a great wealth since they squander little. They are good with money and are willing to lend to others. They do expect the other party to honour an agreement though, and will seek revenge if someone reneges on a deal. Those born under this sign are highly sensitive. Scorpio people empathise with those who have experienced pain and suffering and would rarely inflict pain on others. In fact, they tend more towards compassion and understanding. Some great surgeons have been born under this sign. They have a surgical ability to cut through a surface and expose under-layers whether this be feelings or physical corrosion. They are unafraid of raw emotion or physical devastation. They see only a problem that has to be addressed. Because one of the Scorpio goals is to achieve a truly committed relationship to one person they enjoy intimacy. They are seen to be the sexy sign of the Zodiac. They have an extraordinary ability to create a sense of mystique about themselves and their charisma can put others under their spell. Theirs is the sign of the Scorpion yet rarely show the sting in their tail.


Those born under Scorpio relate well to those born under the other Water signs: Cancer and Pisces. Yet this can prove too emotional a mix. They fare well with those born under the Earth signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
