Scorpio Characteristics

October 23 - November 21



Penetrating eyes and mind

Sometimes it is not easy to get along with Scorpio. The insults can quickly bounce from their armour and when you warmly flatter them they will not melt as the snow in spring. The usual relationship's tactic and tricks characteristically does not apply to them. Scorpios simply do not need anyone to tell them how good they are. And even if they will agree with your compliments, they will think "what does he / she wants from me in exchange for such politeness?".

Scorpio people have a mesmeric glance. If your eyes meet, certainly you will step aside first. You can often feel that his / her sight is penetrating, similarly to a knife that can smoothly go through the butter. The hypnotic intensity of such experience may surprise you. It can seem that Scorpio knows everything what is in your mind. But the other way around, to find out what Scorpio thinks will be a much greater challenge! Deep and passionate heart is very characteristic for them.

Volcano under the mask

Although they do not give such impression, Scorpios are very emotional and they take a lot of things incredibly seriously. They often emanate external balance, but there is a volcano under this mask. After a while you will simply feel that something is hidden deeply inside them. Scorpios usually have good self-control, but it is naturally possible to put them out of countenance. If this happens, he or she will attack with the poisonous tail and it is good to get away soon.

There is a saying "to have a memory like an elephant", but because we do not have any elephant zodiac sign, we could very well say "to have a memory like a Scorpio". This does not mean that Scorpio is a walking encyclopedia, but that he or she never forgets how others behave towards them. Even if they forgive some old grievances, the shadows will remain forever in their memory. Conversely, Scorpio will retain all memories of your kindness, courtesy or a sincere gift. The talent of observation is a characteristic feature of this zodiac sign.


Unlike other zodiac signs, Scorpio knows the mystery of death. The secret is the poisonous tip on the tale. The genuine Scorpio may stay up many nights to figure out how to get the revenge. But honestly, the desire for revenge is certainly not a typical feature of Scorpio. It is just about how to deal with the poison. Vindictiveness is simply not the characteristic feature of such proud but responsive zodiac sign.


If Scorpio retains anger in itself and is not honest to the people, he or she may even strike really deadly. Keep the feelings under wraps is simply not a good idea. Scorpios, however, have characteristically strongly developed intuition, rigorous judgement and innate psychological talent. Rather than wasting energy in the fight, they will avoid uncomfortable people and, vice versa, they will seek strong friendships. Those, as you well know, are often rare. And in case of emergency, the Scorpios show as loyal friends who are able to sacrifice a lot for others; perhaps to test their own limits, or rather thanks to the principle that the world can be a better place only when everyone will be an example for others.

Secretive but open minded

Scorpio is often interested in secrets. This can take various forms: from a good detective story through the complex logical and mathematical puzzles to issues of religion and magic. They have the desire to discover. Scorpios do not like to go with the flow and are rather loners or noble individualists. They love good company, but still, the personality of Scorpio is experienced and usually independent. They are not interested much in what others think. They will not let the day spoil by a trifle, as is the opinion of neighbours, friends and sometimes even family. Thus, the soul of Scorpio is free and open, what is very characteristic for this zodiac sign.

Scorpio as a parent

Scorpio does not envy the riches of others and does not suffer from self-pity. Scorpio also does not believe to false values and, as a parent, he or she will not build castles in the air for own children. Scorpio will try to prepare them for life such as really is. If Scorpio will lend money to the children, perhaps he or she will want also the interest from them (we note with a slight exaggeration). Scorpio‘s children will learn soon that there are certain boundaries that can not be exceeded.
