scorpio


hank-scorpio

It's my birth month, and over the past few days I've been interested in horoscopes. A long time ago I vowed to never read my horoscope, because I thought it was unlucky. When reading magazines I quickly flip past the horoscope section, careful not to even catch a word. But, I am fascinated with the general traits of my horoscope sign. It is so me it's remarkable (Not EVERYTHING, but I'd say 90%). What isn't me though, is my moon sign. I'm not even too sure how that works, but from what I've researched online, my moon sign's description it completely NOT ME AT ALL. If you know about these things, let me know! I am curious. If you are a Scorpio, you may be interested in reading the below, compiled from a few websites:

Scorpio:

Scorpios are the most intense, profound, powerful characters in the zodiac. Even when they appear self-controlled and calm there is a seething intensity of emotional energy under the placid exterior. They are like the volcano not far under the surface of a calm sea, it may burst into eruption at any moment. But those of us who are particularly perceptive will be aware of the harnessed aggression, the immense forcefulness, magnetic intensity, and often strangely hypnotic personality under the tranquil, but watchful composure of Scorpio.

In their everyday behavior they give the appearance of being withdrawn from the center of activity, yet those who know them will recognize the watchfulness that is part of their character. They need great self-discipline, because they are able to recognize the qualities in themselves that make them different from other humans, and to know their utterly conventional natures can be used for great good, or great evil. Their tenacity and willpower are immense, their depth of character and passionate conviction overwhelming, yet they are deeply sensitive and easily moved by their emotions. Their sensitivity, together with a propensity for extreme likes and dislikes make them easily hurt, quick to detect insult or injury to themselves (often when none is intended) and easily aroused to ferocious anger. This may express itself in such destructive speech or action that they make lifelong enemies by their outspokenness, for they find it difficult not to be overly critical of anything or anyone to whom they take a dislike.

They are fortunate in that their strong reasoning powers are tempered with imagination and intuition, and these gifts, together with critical perception and analytical capacity, can enable the Scorpions to penetrate to profundities beyond the average. They have a better chance of becoming geniuses than the natives of any other sign.But charismatic "twice-born" characters such as they can sink into the extremes of depravity if they take the wrong path, and the intensity of their nature exaggerates their harmful tendencies into vices far greater than the normal. Brooding resentment, aggressive and sadistic brutality, total arrogance, morbid jealousy, extreme volatility of temperament, these are some of their vices. At the other extreme is the procrastinator, the man or woman who is capable of so much that they do nothing and become indolent and self-indulgent.

Your Scorpio influence provokes you to be bold courageous, creative and scientific. Originality is almost always an outlet for success. You often mind your own business, and expect others to do the same. However, you can also tend to be suspicious, skeptical and critical. There is an intensity in your thinking, and deep inner conviction. As a result, you often cause trouble for others. Few people know what you are thinking. There is a willingness to tough things out, or to tear them down and start over.

Likes:
-truth
-hidden causes
-being involved
-work that is meaningful
-being persuasive

Dislikes:
-being given only surface data
-being taken advantage of
-demeaning jobs
-shallow relationships
-flattery and flattering

Colour: Dark red to maroon (so on trend... gaaaaag!)

Ruling Planet: Pluto (except isn't Pluto now considered a star?)

Starstone: Opal

Hi,
Long time reader, first time commenter. I'm a hobbyist astrologer, so maybe I can shed a little light on the question of your moon sign. The moon sign primarily reflects your emotional and "feminine"(whether you are a man or a woman) qualities. It also has to be considered in the light of your sun sign,as a sun sign with opposing qualities will tend to overpower aspects of the moon sign, which is subtler in its effects.
Any other questions, feel free to ask! I really enjoy your blog!

Hey, happy birthday to you! I am a Sag myself and it's funny, I think the older I get, the more I've really grown into it.

I don't actually put much stock in astrology myself, always thought of it as kind of a fun game. But I can't deny that there is something strangely consistent about it. I've been able to predict sun and moon signs for friends, coworkers, bosses, just based on what I know or observe of them. So who knows, maybe there's something there?

Well, this sag has a million things to do (hah), off I go. Happy birthday again to you, I hope it was delightful!
