Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, and people born under this sign are intense. Scorpios are fully serious in their strive to learn about others. When they speak, there's no fluff; these people get straight to the point with essential questions to reveal the secrets within.

Scorpio is associated with beginnings and endings, and they like both. They go through life in black and white - gray is rare. Scorpios are extremely curious people, which makes them great investigators. With their keen sense of intuition, people born under this sign love to probe to get to the bottom of things.

The symbol of Scorpio is the Scorpion, which describes these people well. The Scorpion prefers to kill itself than be killed, so people born under this sign tend to be in complete control of their destiny. Life goes on their terms since they strive to promote their agenda and make sure that their ideas go forward. Some may see this as overbearing and self-destructive, but Scorpios have great regenerative powers, just like how the Scorpion can lost its tail and grow a new one.

Scorpios are fearless; they rarely lose and keep moving forward, as they are stubborn and very determined to succeed (this trait comes from the fixed quality of this sign). Scorpios work as hard as they can so that they can relax in the future. Scorpio is a water sign, but unlike the other water signs, these people do not like to show their emotions. Though Scorpios do tend to be emotional, they keep it secretive and under cover.

Scorpio is ruled by both Mars and Pluto. With the God of War and God of the Underworld associated with these planets in ancient Roman times, this sign is very intense. This combination makes Scorpios motivated, penetrating, and aware.

Love

In love, Scorpios play for keeps. There is no middle ground - they're either all in or all out. This sign is known for being passionate and intense in love. One minute, a Scorpio is mysterious and aloof, driving their partners crazy. The next moment, that same Scorpio is in a committed long-term relationship. This sign simply rules the extremes and runs hotter and colder than others.

Scorpios don't trust easily and find love both frightening and tempting. People born under this sign long for that perfect soulmate, but they are both threatened and intrigued by the perfect partner. Scorpios want to be with someone that holds their ground and keeps them on their feet.

Once in a relationship, Scorpios fully commit. That's why Scorpios are reluctant to get into relationships at first; they are aware that they may "lose themselves" once they commit. Scorpios want to make sure that the long-term payoff of their relationships are worth it. Scorpios may also act like undercover cops in relationships, snooping and investigating their partners details. It is important that Scorpios don't pry too much without revealing their own secrets.

Scorpios are most compatible with Cancer, Pisces, Virgo, and Capricorn. Read more about zodiac compatibility here.


Friends and Family

Scorpios look for honesty and authenticity in their friends. They enjoy good-natured people that have a witty sense of humor. Scorpios don't open up easily, but once they develop a trusting bond, they are very loyal friends that will prove their devotion. Unfortunately, this sign can be very sensitive, so any breach of trust may be irreparable and end the friendship.

Scorpios are also very faithful to their families and fulfill their familial duties regularly. They are supportive and won't hestitate to help a relative in need.


Career and Money

A Scorpio's intensity is very useful in the workplace. When people born under this sign are passionate about a project, they will go all in. However, the Scorpion does not have interest in playing the game - they're in it to win it. Therefore, politics with colleagues may be a bit shaky.

In terms of work ethic, Scorpios would prefer to work solo than with a team they don't like. They are great at multi-tasking and are very intelligent, so entrepenurism is something they excel in. Scorpios will commit and see a project all the way through. They want to be trusted in their independence and hate having others looking over their shoulders.

People born under this sign may be demanding bosses, but they are also fair, exacting, and truly want the best of their employees. They have a talent for finding people's strengths and pushing them to their best.

Scorpios make money easily because of their street smarts and intelligence, however, their love of luxury means that their money is also spent easily. A Scorpio may get frustrated because they know what they "should" be spending money on, but they struggle with having enough discipline to see it through. The Scorpion may get jealous when others have more cash than them, especially if they think the person is not as smart or hardworking as them. In all, the more Scorpio takes charge of their money, the better they will feel about it.
