Scorpio is the Fixed Water of the zodiac, with the sign of the Scorpion. Scorpio is like the ocean; deep, powerful, subtle, and complex. Scorpio people are not afraid of the mystery of life. Knowing maybe half the battle, but the mystery is half the fun. Scorpio thrives in the nebulous, undefined areas of life. Scorpio can hold space for different kinds of life and beauty and are often community builders and backbones of social movements. They understand relationships as a complex ecosystem of love and strive to give everyone a place that is as unique as they are.
Scorpios are interested in the edges of things. They are willing to look beyond conventional wisdom for Truth. They explore and try out different ideas of Truth, sometimes to the extent of fanaticism. Every now and then Scorpios need a practical reality check, but once you pull them back from the ideal, they quickly adjust their perspective and deal with the reality of their situation.
Scorpios don’t do things halfway. They give it their all, or it doesn’t happen. If they commit to you, they’re friends for life, but getting to that level of Trust with a Scorpio takes time. They don’t trust easily, and they are quickly discouraged by unreliable people. They don’t get burned twice. They won’t be rude, but it will take serious effort to regain their trust.
Scorpios have to be careful not to hold grudges. Creating suspicion in situations is natural for Scorpio. They turn to doubt very quickly because they are acutely aware that there is always more to the story. Scorpios can be given to wild conjecture and conspiracy theory if they don’t check their facts and keep their belief systems grounded with some solid common sense. There’s no way to say what is for a fact right or wrong, but if it sounds too good to be true, usually it is. Remember to check your facts Scorpio, in relationships that means going directly to the source, and in life that means good old-fashioned research.
