Determined, Emotional, Forceful, Passionate
Scorpios are often serious people who are not easily ignored. While they are not typically confrontational, they keep their weapons ready for self-defense. Scorpios have an intimate connection with the world of the unconscious. They carry an instinctive understanding of the high seriousness and tragic nature of life and possess a mature understanding of the ironies of life.
Once they’ve set their sights on a goal, they won’t rest until they get it. They will endure to the very end to accomplish their goal. They are very proud of their will power and their ability to overcome obstacles. They know that even if it takes some time, they will eventually have what they want. If they do encounter a ‘brick wall’ they are likely to sink into a deep depression.
They have a long memory and a strong distaste of criticism. Once they feel unjustly slighted, they won’t ever forget it. If they’ve let their guard down and let you in, they are a true partner or friend. They have difficulty relinquishing attachments to people and ideas. Even if they physically move on from a relationship, emotionally they can remain connected for a very long time, unable to let go.
Scorpios have a great sense of humor. They love socializing, enjoying fine foods, fine wines and fine restaurants, so long as they meet their exacting standards.
