How to Recognise Scorpio

Author: Carolyn Clayton

Have you ever met a stubborn person with a fierce determination and a slightly large ego?  Someone who can be brutally honest and speaks their mind to the point of hurting the other person? Then you have probably met a Scorpio.  A really complex personality, the Scorpio individual is an intense, intuitive, complex and determined soul who gives life his all.  With a very strong will power they will not accept defeat easily.

The symbol of Scorpio is a water sign and the symbol is the 'The Scorpion'.  If you want the truth then the best person to ask is a straight talking Scorpion.  You won't get any sugar coating, so be prepared for the truth however painful that maybe.

Underneath the tough exterior is a gentle heart that knows how to love and care for people. They are extremely loyal and caring, and will do anything for their loved ones. Charismatic and passionate are also characteristics of the Scorpio.  

In work and social situation the Scorpio will perform well but he is more comfortable with his or her self or a small circle of friends and family. Scorpios are often mysterious people who have perfect control over their emotions rarely showing their true feelings. They are very adaptable, often changing careers several times in their life time.

They do have a tendency to be possessive and jealous in fact I would go so far as to say they are the most jealous out of all of the signs.  If they have been wronged they won't forgive too easily and will be thinking about revenge. Scorpios are often a force to be reckoned with and are intensely ruthless.

In love the Scorpio's personality really shines and those involved are in for a real treat. You will be continued to be fascinated for a long time to come.
