The Scorpio Personality:

You can often tell if you’re in the presence of a Scorpio as they have such a magnetic presence. Their most striking characteristic is the intensity that emanates from them and in particular their penetrating gaze that seems to look into your very soul. Sounds heavy doesn’t it? Well it is, Scorpios are a heavy duty sign and not to be taken lightly. They possess will power, drive and a level of self discipline that’s hard to match. This means they have tremendous tenacity which for the most times will work for them, however they  can refuse to let go of something that is over and hang on to it needlessly. Emotionally they are so intense, yet they often fail to share this with others which can cause frustration and hurt. You may never know if you have hurt or upset them as they will not usually speak of it, they just become emotionally remote or leave.  They fear being vulnerable and may keep people at arms length in order to maintain their control.

They admire strength and set high standards for themselves and others.

They seem to be natural detectives and enjoy delving into the mysteries of life and death. Scorpios find it difficult to be superficial and may not always demonstrate tact. In fact the most socially skilled Scorpios will say nothing rather than tell a falsehood, others can be blunt, cutting and hurtful. Their worst trait is their ability to never forget mishaps and unkindness and harbouring grudges for years. They need to be in control of all aspects of their lives and their greatest fear is being out of control or vulnerable. This can cause serious problems in intimate relationships, as the other party will often feel as if they are being held at arms length or their beloved Scorpio is holding something back.

Innately, they have strong perception, sense of reasoning and analytical ability which is capable of penetrating to the root of any problem. Usually, they are highly intuitive and can put this to use either positively, by helping others or negatively, by manipulating others to do their bidding.

In love, once your chosen, notice I said chosen, the Scorpio's commitment is unshakable. Mind you, getting them to the commitment stage will occur in their timeframe not yours. Once they take that step, you will be loved by one of the most loyal signs in the Zodiac and you could trust your life to them. The most highly evolved Scorpios have a depth of love, caring, passion and emotion unequalled by other signs.
