Just Another Scorpio
I borrowed the following from the www.astrology-online.com
"Scorpios are the most intense, profound, powerful characters in the zodiac. Even when they appear self-controlled and calm there is a seething intensity of emotional energy under the placid exterior. They are like the volcano not far under the surface of a calm sea, it may burst into eruption at any moment. But those of us who are particularly perceptive will be aware of the harnessed aggression, the immense forcefulness, magnetic intensity, and often strangely hypnotic personality under the tranquil, but watchful composure of Scorpio. In conventional social gatherings they are pleasant to be with, thoughtful in conversation, dignified, and reserved, yet affable and courteous; they sometimes possess penetrating eyes which make their shyer companions feel naked and defenseless before them.
In their everyday behavior they give the appearance of being withdrawn from the center of activity, yet those who know them will recognize the watchfulness that is part of their character. They need great self-discipline, because they are able to recognize the qualities in themselves that make them different from other humans, and to know their utterly conventional natures can be used for great good, or great evil. Their tenacity and willpower are immense, their depth of character and passionate conviction overwhelming, yet they are deeply sensitive and easily moved by their emotions. Their sensitivity, together with a propensity for extreme likes and dislikes make them easily hurt, quick to detect insult or injury to themselves (often when none is intended) and easily aroused to ferocious anger. This may express itself in such destructive speech or action that they make lifelong enemies by their outspokenness, for they find it difficult not to be overly critical of anything or anyone to whom they take a dislike."
I don't think all of this is entirely accurate but I don't read my horoscope on a regular basis either. Some of it fits though. I am considered reserved, even shy, but I am an observer of people. I am stubborn and persistent and I will fight for what I passionately believe in.
I am quite emotional at times but other times I can seem even cold and insensitive I think. I do have a temper but I do manage to control it most of the time. When I don't, it's not pretty and I can say things I will then have to apologize for later. I can be highly critical but usually more so of myself than others.
The evil, not so wonderful traits... I do think I possess them to a degree. After all, no one is perfect. But I really can't stand to hurt anyone. I do think I can be a compulsive apologizer. I hate being misunderstood. I don't trust easily and I'm generally very careful when picking friends and very selective about who I choose to get close to.
Ok, enough about me.... lol.
