Scorpio

is the darkest of all zodiac signs. 

He is a fallen angel lifting up the sky.

Scorpio represents the elements which are considered to be taboo, or are forbidden in society altogether (such as religion, sex, and death). Scorpio represents which is hidden and unseen in our psyches. Scorpio represents our subconscious and unconscious longings. In essence, Scorpio represents which is truly dark and fierce within our collective psyche.

In astrology, Scorpio rules the night. According to folklore, the night is associated with the dark, hidden and demonic. 

Scorpio constantly walks the edge between the dark and the darkest dark. To him darkness - is normal human nature, it's always beside. Scorpio is attracted to dark shadows, and wants to know the darkest secrets of the world. He is fascinates about all phases of life and death, and tends to experiment with the darkest mysteries. He has this morbid desire to know the worst. He goes places other's simply can't. No avenue is too dark, forbidden, risky, or dangerous for him. He has no fear. He flirts with danger. He understands pain like no others. He can overcome any blow. Scorpio was born knowing the secrets of life and death, and has the ability to conquer both, if he chooses. He could be a sinner, or a saint. That's a grand magic of Scorpio.

Deep inside him is the most intense power. Scorpio has an incredible ability to focus, stamina of a thousand people, creative superpowers, and on top of all that - brilliant mind. In other words - Scorpio is tough and determined, well equipped, has a desire (to win), goes for it, and conquers. His dark and mysterious power turns a desired dream into reality.

There is no pretence about Scorpio, what you see is what you get. He digs deep looking for the truth, keeps his emotions and opinions to himself, and takes nothing at face value. Having issues with trust, Scorpio is the natural detective of the zodiac, so it is best not to use any type of deception, prevarication or falsehood when encountering him. 

It's difficult to 'pin down' Scorpio. He fools many easily. He doesn't flatter. He dictates. In general, Scorpio is all about the Ego.

When Scorpio is bad, he is horrid. Paranoid, vengeful, self-destructive. He has the ancient hatred rooting in his heart. He knows how to burn you down and bring your pride out. Scorpio is a fixed water sign. Look at what a glacier can do to the earth to have an idea of the power of Scorpio. He takes control slowly, but very surely. He can destroy your Universe. The good (bad?) news - no one is able to destroy his. 

Scorpio seeks dark shadows and lies dormant sometimes. Melancholy and hard work can make him ill. But he never slides deep enough into bitter depression (as Pisces does), and never gets down on his knees to pray for help (as does Cancer). Scorpio is supported by Pluto (which runs nuclear power) meaning when the time will come, he will rise from his own ashes again (this way personifying resurrection from the grave).

His mastery of personality is the one to be envied.

Scorpio reforms itself each lifetime.

 

Pisces is afraid of Scorpio's clarity. He makes darkness whisper into Cancer's ear.

I have a sense, Scorpio doesn't know sadness. His nostalgia is pure - Scorpio was born during the November rain...

'Tough, ha?' I asked one my Scorpio friend the other day.

'Could be. But I take it as a compliment' he stroked half a smile.

 

This kind of attitude sobers me up.
