Characteristics of the Scorpion
The Scorpio Zodiac Sign Traits in Astrology
The Scorpio horoscope sign, the Scorpion, is the 8th sign of the Zodiac in the horoscope. It belongs to the element water and its quality is fixed. The Scorpio Zodiac sign is the perturber, the one who needs to stir up things and make what's hidden below the surface emerge. It's the sign of passion and of everything mysterious.
The Scorpio horoscope sign has the element water, but not the waves on the surface or the playful rain from the sky. This is the deep water, in the darkness far below the surface, where few have gone. Scorpio is the horoscope sign of the hidden forces, which are mighty although they are neither known nor explicable.
That's all kinds of unknown, like the mystery of magic and the occult, but also the subconscious, making us vaguely aware of its existence through dreams and longings from deep within. Although these forces are mostly invisible, they are mighty important in how we actually live our lives, especially regarding the impulses that carry us away at times, frequently to our own frustration.
The key word for the Scorpio horoscope sign is passion, but then it must be understood that emotions of this grand scale are usually contained within us. We fear the power unleashed if we express them, so we do our best to suppress them. The Scorpio Zodiac sign in the horoscope is the same, but consciously so: Scorpio loves to have others express the strong, almost chaotic emotions we all hide inside, whereas Scorpio remains seemingly unaffected. Like a catalyst.
The scorpion is a relevant symbol of the Scorpio horoscope traits - a small but dangerous animal, invoking both fear and fascination. The archetype of the magician is another good example of the Scorpio horoscope character. So is the actor, who plays a role by which the feelings of others are stirred, but the actor remains unaffected.
Those with Scorpio as their horoscope Zodiac sign were born with the sun in it, between October 23 and November 21. For more about the Scorpio Zodiac sign influence in the horoscope, see the links in the menu to the left.
Scorpio Horoscope TraitsScorpio is the horoscope sign of passion, but a Scorpio is not the one to express it - that's left for family, friends and others in the environment to do. The Scorpio horoscope traits are mainly indicated, unawares, by the surroundings. Scorpio has a way of making others express all the feelings, while Scorpio remains seemingly calm.
