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In their everyday behavior they give the appearance of being withdrawn from the center of activity, yet those who know them will recognize the watchfulness that is part of their character.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.

Yew... I have idea what the rising thing is about but I do agree Scorpios have the eyes.

Scorpio here and I got Pisces rising...wooo i got dreamy and intense eyes hahah

Good points Cq. It can all be made to fit whatever you want it to.

If you look at a Gemini (me) then this would describe the split personality.<br />
<br />
An Aquarian, that would describe the intense protectiveness, lashing out when someone they care about is hurt.<br />
<br />
Taurus, proud and strong until you **** with it.<br />
<br />
It seems this describes the same thing, the human reaction to being hurt. Anyone can have a fierce temper, lack of temper being the exception not the rule.

I did not know about all the different totems that scorpios have. Wow, I really need to read more about this stuff.

Of course we're awesome. I knew about the Phoenix but not the others so thanks Frilla. This also explains my love of Dove's chocolate. lol

Haha! Another Scorpio to throw in the mix. I get the compliments on my eyes all the time. I've also been told that I'm too asocial, I just observe and watch people instead. I suppose that freaks them out. ;)<br />
<br />
But yeah, Eagle is another totem of a Scorpio. As well as a Dove, Phoenix and a Lizard! We're the only ones with more than one totem! Because we're awesome, I say. =P

Welcome Goggos...we scorps should stick together!<br />
<br />
Aqrn, she sounds like a lovely lady. I have no idea about my eyes though. I may need to take a survey next...lol.

My ex wife was a Scorpio. Even though our signs are imcompatible I still got along wonderfully with her. I'm Aquarius rising. She was about the easiest going person I've ever been with. Hardly ever complains, doesn't gripe, hard worker, great at social gatherings. And you're right about their eyes.

Hi there ...It's me ... just another scorpio in the mix...

They're good for a laugh, that's for sure!

Yes, I do laugh at astrology. I only know my "sign" because they're all listed by birth dates...lol. I can't remember the last time I read my horoscope... maybe I need to start...lol.

Not me ever, never! too much to play with on the horoscopes. Too much to read into to be serious. I find them funny!

LOL--I was under the impression that the Eagle is another symbol of the sign Scorpio---- Astrology is fun---taking it too seriously--might not be wise.

age is irrelevant. My husband was 12 years my senior. A beautiful man and we had a great relationship.

that has got to be freaky cool. I was married to a Virgo with a Leo cusp I think that's how it went....Man we could get into some doosies! But we read each other like a good book. never could put it down. :)

LOL, no doubt.

I'll bet there are some volitile situations in that house from time to time...lol

Lucky me....I get to share my birthday with Roseanne Barr! LOL That's cool you share the same b-day.


And if you don't like it......Run!

LOL Red... Good Morning....I woke up much too early and already had lots of coffee.... I admit, I've been told I can be evil...but I'm also sappy so you get what you get...lol.

LOL just joking.....still working the coffee thing ..... My temper is slow to rise, but I'm evil when it does... and I am a survivor, I've been told. I'm still here so I guess it's true. LOL Morning Sappy :P

Red....we are NOT bugs! We are proud scorpions, complete with stingers. It just means we can take care of ourselves.<br />
I try not to sting often though. ; )

Yeah, I'm a bug. But like you said....I've read other horoscopes I can probably slide into.

Red...are you a Scorpio too? I have a feeling anybody could read about their sign and find things to fit them as well as things that don't. Sorta like horoscopes, they can fit if you read them after the fact and twist it and turn it just so...lol.

Hey! I thought we were talking about me! Geez, I don't really believe in this stuff, but you are right some of it does come close while others are a bit off.<br />
