When they were passing out power, Scorpio, you didn't have to butt in line-the other signs scurried out of your way, intimidated and intrigued by your pronounced stinger. A born man-trap, you irradiate energy like a live electrical wire, stunning all who cross your path.
Not that you don't have a softer side for those lucky enough to be permitted to see it. As a Water sign, your inner world is often a turbulent whirlpool of emotions frothing just beneath the surface. Your fixed quality keeps it well under wraps, though, and only those closest to you ever glimpse so much as a chink in your armor.
Others find you fascinating, but you often feel the need to stay aloof, not because you enjoy solitude, but because your standards are high. Dark places are your playground, and you enjoy being the shocking surprise in the corner.
Those who do get invited into your lair will find a your place a neatly organized headquarters for your quest of world domination-woe to the guest who unwittingly rearranges your DVD collection or replaces a hand-towel on the wrong bar. Scorpios are known to have a streak of the freak: neat-freak, control-freak, and downright freak-y in the dungeon.
You'll often resist change, but transformation is frequently quite good for you. Scorpios thrive on new challenges and settings, despite an affinity for known routines and surroundings. Similarly, despite your fiery libido and the welcome you receive in many beds, your sense of stability craves a lover worthy of your loyalty.
A master strategist, you are all about cutting the lag time between desire and fulfillment. Your prey barely has time to struggle before being devoured. Once you've made him yours, you aren't one to take straying lightly…you keep a secret cabinet full of exotic devices to punish cheating hearts and their other parts.
Jealousy is too petty a word. What you feel when your territory is invaded is nothing less than rage at the affront. After all, you are no one to be trifled with. Your ruling planets are Mars and Pluto, two of the manliest Greek gods and also the most dangerous. Despite your fierceness and love of battle, Scorpio, you have deep pockets of compassion and often aim your weapon at the forces of injustice on behalf of the helpless.
A warrior in the boardroom as in the bedroom, it's a rare Scorpio who finds success to be elusive. Once you fixate on the object of your obsession, no wise creature interferes with your plans, and you generally rise to whatever heights your fancy drives you to. A penchant for healing and stoic endurance has a brought a great number of you to the medical field and caretaking positions.
Your refined, classic tastes are evident in your style and abode. Conservative with expenditures (some would say tight with the checkbook), you enjoy the finer things in life, and rarely cheat yourself when it comes to clothing or décor. Money is power, so you like to keep a tidy bundle of it around, but you'll pick up the tab and dinner and even fight for the right.
Your tongue is often too sharp for the unwary, and Scorpios are possessed with a biting wit that often injures unintentionally. This creates some distance between you and those who feel it might be safer to worship you from afar.
You laugh at pain, so are likelier than other signs to be pierced and sport elaborate murals of ink on your skin. You also have a reputation for kinkiness and for being a tasteful yet harsh dominant…your urge is not to punish so much as to control. A bevy of willing slaves will turn up for your tender whip, but you have particular tastes, and only the most intriguing victims are chosen for a night of dark delights.
Like all Scorpios, you are deeply individualistic, prizing your uniqueness and fend off any outside attempts to redefine your identity. The crowd follows you, not the other way around. All this attention gets to you sometimes, as you treasure your privacy, so it's not at all unknown for Scorpios to lead a double life.
You sometimes like to slip away to a lightly populated white-sand beach (preferably clothing optional) to be alone with your thoughts or your current lucky conquest. Bathed in moonlight and just barely out of sight is the mood that gets you worked up; Scorpio is the quintessential creature of the night.
