Scorpio – Summary
Because it belongs to Mars, Scorpio holds tremendous passion, energy, and love for individualism & adventure – but these passions can quickly become unrealistic. Scorpio usually enjoys competition, is not clumsy, and has powerful lust and an almost equally powerful willpower. She desires, and usually possesses, great inner strength and passionate sexual charisma.
Though Scorpio loves deep and secret knowledge, she almost always loathes traditional and patriarchal religions and traditions. She tends to dislike her own upbringing, often having significant issues with her parents as well.
Scorpio dislikes subservient positions, especially in the workplace. She tends to live happily in relative solitude, finding it disturbing to try and cooperate intimately and harmoniously with others in close quarters. She loves financial generosity and is often the benefactor of other’s wealth.
