In this project, you will...
You are "in tune" to the emotions of others. You know when others are being false or insincere. You enjoy mysterious things and personal secrecy. You don't get angry easily, but, if you are offended, you hold on to it for a long time. You are attracted to the healing arts and spiritual truths. However, you are also interested in financial matters and management.
Scorpio, the eighth sign of the Zodiac, is a feminine sign. It is ruled by fierce Mars, the warrior planet, and mysterious Pluto, the planet of transformation. Scorpio governs will and authority. Scorpio people are passionate and have very deep feelings. Although you are a loyal and dedicated friend, you are fiercely competitive
Determined Scorpio, a stable sign, can be a bit stubborn and tenacious. In many ways this is good because it gives you the strength to get things done. On the surface, you may seem easy-going and friendly. However, you like to control your situations.
Keys to your success are a strong will and the ability to get to the bottom of things.
Unless it becomes necessary, you are not combative. You guard your privacy, so others get to know you only up to a point. When you are after something (or someone) your determination is fierce. However, you are not arrogant. You are generally interested in others and what they have to say.
Emotions govern your first reactions to everything, but you don't show your emotions easily. You need to dominate, or control, relationships and rarely show your true feelings.
Scorpios make good doctors, investigators, ecologists, financial managers, engineers, navigators (of the Titanic?) and secret agents.
Scorpio colors are red, black, midnight blue, and emerald green. Scorpio rules metallic iron and your birthstone is the topaz. Topaz, one of the hardest minerals, cannot be cut with a knife. It is yet another representation of the Scorpio nature. Scorpio flowers include the anemone, heather, and gardenia.
