Scorpio the Scorpion, Eagle and the Gray Lizard
Octogber 24 - November 22
Scorpio is a fixed sign.†
Fixed signs are willful and are determined to maintain their positions in all life situations.†
Scorpio is a sign of the watery element and as such seeks to permanentize its feelings about people and ideas.
Scorpio has total ego. She knows what she is and she knows what she is not, and nothing anyone else thinks will change this knowledge.† Insults roll right off his back, and compliments don’t move him a fraction of an inch.† He needs no one to tell him his vices or virtues. At best, she’ll calmly agree with your appraisal; at worst, she’ll suspect your motives.
Scorpio’s eyes are piercing with hypnotic intensity.† Most people feel nervous and ill at ease under Scorpio’s steady gaze.† Scorpio’s eyes bore deeply into you, mercilessly, as if they’re penetrating your very soul.† They are.
Frosty on the outside, that is. The poised surface calm of the Pluto character is carefully designed to hide the boiling inner nature.† † Such mastery of the personality has to be envied.† No matter how his emotions are stirred, you’ll rarely see them reflected on Scorpio’s frozen, immobile face. These people proudly and consciously practice a blank expression.† They command their features to remain firm, and their features obey.† You’ll seldom see Scorpio’s give himself away by blushing or flushing, frowning or grinning.† Smiles are rare, but genuine.† The body follows the same order as the face.† There will rarely be any jumping, sudden starts or nervous mannerisms.† She’ll never flinch with embarrassment or swell up with pride.† Reaction is always kept at a bare minimum, because Scorpio’s art is to probe your nature and motives relentlessly, while remaining inscrutable himself, and he’s and expert at it.†
Be on guard with all Scorpios.† They are not wicked, they’re just not soft and naÔve.† Remark to a Scorpio that he has a great talent which will someday be recognized, and she smoothly, casually replies, “Yes, I know.”
If you are sensitive, don’t ask her opinion, or advice.† You’ll get the naked, brutal truth. You asked her, she’ll tell you, Scorpio will not pay a false compliment to gain a point or win as ally.† † It is beneath her to flatter. When he says something nice to you, treasure it.† You can be sure it’s sincere and unvarnished.†
Scorpio naturally attracts either fiercely loyal and dedicated admirers, or envious and spiteful enemies.† † Pluto rules nuclear power so, be careful not to challenge him openly.† She can imitate the nocturnal scorpion, who will sting others and even sting herself to death for the pure pleasure of stinging – or he can imitate the glorious, soaring path of his symbolic eagle, who rises above earthly, limitations, and uses his strength wisely and justly.
Typical eagles have no fear.† In battle they’ll lead their men into the very face of death without a tremor.† Even the average Pluto man or woman bravely faces anything from physical pain and poverty to ridicule and failure with a proud contempt and complete confidence in an inner ability to overcome any blow.
Scorpio is intensely loyal to friends.† Pluto people unconsciously seek violence deliberately, as a challenge to their strength.†
Scorpio never forgets a gift or† a kindness, and it’s richly rewarded. Conversely, he also remembers an injury or an injustice, but there are different ways of reacting.† The eagle will crush the enemy so the enemy learns never to hurt him again, win the fight, and leave the defeated to go his own way.†
The deadly nocturnal scorpion will first sting, then plan destruction then sting again. He’s not content with merely evening the score.† He must totally destroy the enemy, or at least top him.† The typical scorpion stinger will lie awake nights figuring how to get even.†† However, with the gray lizards, Pluto revenge takes the form of bitterness held inside for years, which inevitably causes deep melancholy or actual, lingering physical illness.
The Scorpio health picture is typical of his nature. He can destroy his body with excesses, melancholy or hard work,
but he can also built it back at will from a critical illness.† Scorpio’s are seldom sick, but when they are, it’s usually serious.† A long rest and a change of attitude, with peaceful acceptance replacing burning resentment, are the best cures.† The chief areas of attack for germs and accidents are the reproductive organs, the nose, the throat, the heart, spine, back, circulatory system, legs and ankles. Varicose veins and accident in sports are common.
Scorpio is deeply interested in religion, intensely curious about all phases of life and death, passionately concerned with sex and violently drawn by a desire to reform.† Yet, she’s also heroic, dedicated to ties of family and love, and gently protective of children and weaker souls.† She can be a sinner or saint.
She’s fiercely possessive of what she believes to he her’s, including success, but her ambition is never obvious.† Scorpio can do just about anything he wants to do.† † If he really wants it, it’s most definitely no longer a dream. The dark, magical and mysterious power of Pluto turns desire into reality with cool, careful, fixed intent.
Scorpio was born knowing the secrets of life and death, and with the ability to conquer both if he chooses.† Sometimes he faces the public, wearing a mask of calm reserve and control, to hide his intense desire to win.† She can be a politician or a television star, an undertaker or a bartender, but he’ll manage to top all her competitors.†† And she’ll do it so effortlessly it will seem like an act of fate rather than his own powerful will.
One of the strangest patterns in astrology is the death of a relative in the family within either a year before or the year after the birth of a Scorpio. And when a Scorpio dies, there will be a birth in the family within the year before or the year after.
The Scorpio Man
If you’re in love with† Scorpio male and the word passion frightens you, put on your track shoes and run as if King Kong were pursuing you.† He is.†
It is not romantic passion alone.† † It is passionate intensity about politics, work, friendship, religion, food, relatives, children, clothing, life, death and any other categories you can think up.† A Scorpio man is not exactly what your psyche needs if you’re repelled by emotional excess.†
In a word, this man is invincible.† Just behind his frosty reserve is a huge pot of boiling steam tht bubbles and seethes continually.
He will bewilder you with his twin Scorpio traits of passion and reason.† † He’s master of both.† Intellect and emotions rule him equally.† Scorpio is more than intelligent.† † If he’s a highly evolved specimen, he’s also deeply philosophical, concerned with mysteries of existence, and he’ll come close to knowing the answers.
There are Scorpios who can live a Spartan existence in a bare room, denying themselves every comfort for some obscure, aesthetic reason, but the true nature of the sign is sensual.† Normally, Scorpio will surround himself with luxury.† He’ll lean toward excesses in food, drugs, drink, and yes – in love.† Most assuredly in love.
These men have an explosive temper that can strike a life-time wound.† When the Scorpio lashes his deadly tail, the sting bites hard. He not only enjoys winning, he has to win.† Something inside him, dies when he loses, even in small ways, yet oddly enough, a Pluto man normally practices good sportsmanship.† He’s also capable of torturing a girl cruelly before he finally decides to grab her by the hair and drag her off to his jungle of honeysuckle vines.† Your reputation must be spotless.† He won’t stand for ridicule or cheapness, for all his erotic nature.
Every Scorpio is a law unto himself, and completely unconcerned with what others think of him.† † He would like to be respected as a good, solid citizen, but if it interferes with any of his intense ideas or goals, then he couldn’t care less and those who gossip can just go to the place Pluto rules.
Instead of pouting in hurt anger when real troubles hit, Scorpio meets them head on.† Conquer them?† Of course, that’s what he was born to do.
Scorpio loves mystery and there’s not a single one that crosses his path he won’t’ solve in detail.
He has high standards, and he won’t choose his friends loosely.† They’ll have to measure up.† He can be cruel sometimes, for his own, unfathomable reasons, and he may even exhibit a sadistic sense of wit by describing you as fat, dumpy, shrewdish and square in front of friends.
Never ask him what he thinks of a new dress or hair-do, unless you ‘re† prepared to be stung by the brutal truth.† At least you’ll know his positive statements are honest, and not pasted together with the sticky glue of bored, insincere flattery.
When it comes to jealousy, you’d better tread very, very carefully.† It could erupt and burn like a volcano.† If you ever give him a real reason to be suspicious, you’re a very brave woman.
He’ll probably be a stern father.† The children won’t get away with an ounce of lazy or frivolous behavior. He’ll teach them to respect property, but he’ll also teach them to respect themselves.
It won’t help much to try to resist this man, once the flame has been stirred and he’s decided he wants you.† He’ll hypnotize you right out of all your good intentions.† The magnetism of Scorpio men is almost tangible.† You feel you can reach out and touch it.†† When you do, you may get† a surprise.† It will burn you only if you’re over-sensitive and scorchable.† † If you’re patient and strong, it will be like touching cool marble.
The Scorpio Woman
The female Scorpio has a deep, mysterious beauty.† She’s magnetic, proud and totally confident.† But, she has one secret regret.† She was not born a man.
There’s not a Scorpio female alive who doesn’t think she’s all woman.† This girl certainly has enough glamour, and she’s enormously seductive.† The true shade of her nature is dark maroon, or deep wine-red, not a female color at all.
Scorpio will subdue her drive and magnetize a man with the heavy perfume of her exotic glance as she allows him to use his lighter to ignite her cigarette.† It’s puzzling, but these women can look seductive in jeans, jodhpurs or basketball shoes.
You can give her a tumble, but she won’t fall all over herself reacting to your overtures.† † Don’t expect her to bat long, sweeping eyelashes at you, and adore you with blind devotion.† † Whisper something romantic that would melt another girl out of her senses, and the Scorpio girl will simply give you an intense, penetrating look that will see right straight through to your real intentions.† She’s a human X-ray machine, so don’t flirt.† Unless you mean business, you’re wasting her time and insulting her.
This dangerous femme fatale can hide her power of retaliation with a tremulous smile, gentle mannerisms, and the most breathless voice this side of an angel.
You can be sure that heaven certainly has no fury like that of a Scorpio woman who’s lost her normal steady control over those inward, seething, Pluto emotions.† She can be overbearing and domineering, sarcastic and frigid – then turn as hot as an oven at 500 degrees Fahrenheit.† She can hate† with bitter venom and love with fierce abandon.†
The Scorpio woman has a disconcerting gift that can make icy shivers run up your spine.† † It’s a peculiar form of black magic, and she weaves it so expertly it can seem like real witchcraft.† † You have very little chance to escape,† once her eyes meet yours, because of her mystical sixth sense, she can often recognize a future mate at first glance, and somehow, she’ll transfer this perception instantly.† You’ll have one of two reactions;† You’ll be hopelessly caught in her spell, and down you’ll go, in a dizzy spin toward surrender, or you’ll be scared right out of your socks, and feel like running for help.†
A Scorpio woman can’t excuse weakness in a man.† She looks for ambition and courage.† She wants a mate who can dominate her and make her proud, without disturbing her secret individuality.† Having once achieved closeness with a female Scorpio, you can be positive you’re a unique and unusual man. You can also be sure that her love for you is unmatched by any you’ll ever experience – and you can take that in several ways.† You’ll be the most important interest in her life.
Most men have heard exciting rumors about the passion of November females.† It’s true.† She’s brimming over inside with passion, though it’s kept under rigid control by a poised, frosty attitude toward strangers, and a surface smoothness suggestive of black velvet.† She either bitterly resents or she intensely worships.
She likes to hear secrets, but she’ll seldom tell anything anyone who has confided to her, not even to you.† There’s a private part to this woman you’ll never touch, a part of her mind and soul that belongs strictly to her, and there’s absolutely no trespassing there.† There will always be those special thoughts and feelings she won’t confide to you or anyone else.
A Scorpio woman will be incredibly loyal to those she finds strong and deserving, but the weak ones will never be honored by her glance.† All Scorpios are highly selective in friendships.† They’ll keep the worthy companions through an entire lifetime, and freeze the shallow, the common or the unworthy.†
There’s an immense store of perseverance and determination buried in the nature of a Scorpio woman, and any time she chooses, she can call on these to help her master the excesses which may tempt her, from drink and drugs to self-destructive, ruthless revenge and dangerous depression.
A Scorpio woman need not be a legal wife to give wifely love and devotion.† If circumstances beyond your control make marriage impossible, she’ll love you from hell to breakfast, and not give a hang what the neighbors think.† In most such unusual situations, the relationship is real and honest above and beyond the shallow, selfish love of many a legitimate marriage.† She answers to no law but her own, and in her Pluto heart, she has more total understanding of the vow “til death do us part” than half the brides who blissfully murmur the phrase.
Despite hr own strong individualism, the typical Scorpio girl will let her man be the boss.† She won’t stand for anyone maligning you or taking advantage of you.† Those who try will feel the lash of her righteous anger.† Your happiness will always come first.† She’ll expect you to aim as high as your abilities will reach.† Anything less may bring on some pretty sarcastic taunts and reproaches.
Scorpio women love their homes, which usually shine with cleanliness, taste and comfort.† Meals are served on time, and things are generally under control.† If the opposite is true, something is making her mighty unhappy, because her natural inclination is to beauty and system.†
Scorpio is unreasonably suspicious, even when there’s no basis for suspicion.† Adjusting to the idiosyncrasies of her nature is easier than suffering the nightmares that will surely result if you walk away.† No one walks away from a Scorpio.† Those who have tried can educate you.†
Anyway, you have a very special woman.† † She makes an excellent wife for an army or navy man and a real jewel for a politician.†† There’s no one she can’t see through, no deception that escapes her.† † A Scorpio woman can tell you exactly who can be trusted and which ones you have to watch.
In the budget department, Scorpio women are completely unpredictable.† She can scrimp and save and pinch a penny until it bends double, then have a sudden spell of being magnificently extravagant.† One thing is sure.† She’ll enjoy money, whether she saves it in an old shoe or spends it on luxury † But this woman always leans heavily toward prestige, and she won’t let cash compromise that.† Scorpio females like power, and they will sacrifice much for it.
One of the worst traits of both male and female Scorpios is a refusal to see any viewpoint, but their own when the emotions are involved.† The Scorpio sense of justice is as strong as the sense of revenge.† Most people forget this.†
She’ll remember every kindness and give you back double for that, too.† It works both ways.
