Personal traitsScorpions are known for their intense and powerful natures. They are willful, proud and calm with an electrifying undercurrent of seething intensity. Purposeful and animated with force, they project a magnetic personality.Scorpio does nothing in half measures. An all or nothing attitude permeates their entire life. When fixed on something or someone, the scorpion perseveres. Scorpio never settles. Life is meant to be lived to the fullest or not at all. Scorpio will rarely be found in the center of activity, but will always know just what is going on of concern to him.
Positive TraitsScorpio imagination and intuition are excellent. They possess refined critical perception and strong analytical ability. In addition, they seem to demonstrate a natural healing power. These abundant gifts allow Scorpions to penetrate the most profound subjects. They are serious folk, but quite charming to people they like, and when social events call for it. On the positive side, they are hard workers and are willing to help others as long as they are willing to help themselves.
Negative TraitsTheir sensitivity, and pride allow them to be easily hurt, quick to feel insult or injury, even when none is intended, and easily roused to heights of anger. An angry Scorpio is a sight to see. Scorpio seethes, and doesn't give it up. Their tragic flaw is their immense pride. Once wronged, once Scorpio's pride has been diminished, the game of courtesy is over. Many Scorpios possess a suspicious outlook, and need to know the reasons behind everything.
ProfessionTheir inner intensity can result in the ice-cold restraint and detachment of the surgeon, the concentration of the research scientist and the heroism of the soldier. Any profession in which analysis, investigation, research or dealing with the solving of mysteries are present appeals to Scorpio. Their secretive natures make them natural detectives. Police ,espionage, the law, physics or psychology are attractive professions to the Scorpio.

Advice for the ScorpiosYour worst fault is you are too adaptable to the people with whom you come into contact.Having an ambition is the only thing that can save the Scorpios. As a rule they go through a great deal of trouble and often privation in their early years. Heart is their weakest organ and they should take care that it is not overstrained in work or excercise.
Origins in MythologyLook towards the constellation Scorpius, and you shall see one of the greatest stars visible to the human eye. There, at the very heart of the great scorpion is the brilliant Antares! This red giant, is some four hundred times larger than our own sun. Such intense energy burning at the center of this distinct constellation corresponds well to the driving passions which rule over those born in this period.
