Reliable, resourceful and enduring, Scorpios seem to be the strong men and women of the zodiac. But are they really? They can be nasty at times, dishing out what they see as the truth, no matter how unwelcome. Their own feelings are sensitive and are easily hurt but they won't show any hurt or weakness in themselves to others. When they are very low or unhappy, this turns inwards, attacking their immune systems and making them ill. However they have great resilience and they bounce back in time and again from the most awful ailments.
Nobody needs to love and be loved more than a Scorpio, but their partners must stand up to them because they will give anyone they don't respect a very hard time indeed. They are the most loyal and honest companions, both in personal relationships and at work. One reason for this is their hatred of change or uncertainity. Scorpios enjoy being the power behind the throne with someone else occupying the hot seat.
This way, they can quietly manipulate everyone, set one against another and get exactly what they want from the situation. Scorpio's voices are their best feature, often low, well modulated and cultured and these wonderful voices are used to the full in pleasant persuasion. These people are neither as highly sexed nor as difficult as most astrologists make out, but they do have their passions, even if these are not always for sex itself, and they like to be thought of as sexy. They love to shock and appear slightly dangerous but they also make kind-hearted and loyal friends, superb hosts and gentle people who are often very fond of animals. Great people when they are not being cruel, stingy or devious!
Tarot Card: Queen of Cups
Mythological Reference is: Helen of Troy
The Queen of Cups is portrayed as a beautiful woman who appears to be merging with the water her throne is placed upon. Golden snakes which are the ancient symbol for Scorpio, encircle the arms of her throne. This sign is well known for their intense, passionate feelings which contributes to their powerful emotional nature. If a Scorpion loses interest in anything, the lack of feeling is instantly apparent. They possess the quality of tremendous loyalty and responsibility. Scorpions may also tend to become jealous or possessive quite easily, which leads them to be quite relentless with those who hurt or betray them.
