A Scorpio is a raw, honest, and strong-willed individual, born between October 23rd and November 21st. With the Scorpion as its official symbol, Scorpios are accurately represented by their hard-shelled exterior and softy interior.
They may seem hard to communicate or cooperate with at first, but you will realize how genuine of a person a Scorpio is on the inside. They are very driven by their feelings and will put their all into defending this. If you are close to a Scorpio, they will be a loyal companion, but if you’re on their bad side, it will be quite the opposite. Sometimes being this feelings-driven can cause a Scorpio to lose control of their emotions. This can lead to turmoil at the start of new relationships, and it becomes a make-or-break situation. Learning to deal with a Scorpio’s brutal honesty and intense emotion can be too much for some people, which is why they stay so guarded.
Scorpios remain true to themselves and their values. They aren’t afraid to stand up for what they believe in, and they are definitely aren’t afraid to go head-first against someone with opposing views. This passion can be admirable, as they are never indecisive and are very open about their true selves. They will never conform to the standards of others and won’t be swayed in their views. Scorpios will continue to go after what they want, and they won’t stop to ask for help along the way.
Scorpios will work until they can’t go anymore. Their drive to keep going is unlike any other sign. No matter how many times they are knocked down, they will continue to try again until they reach success, hence the Scorpion being this sign’s symbol. A scorpion regenerates itself every time it loses its stinger, so it’s a very fitting representation.
Despite their guarded demeanor on the outside, Scorpios pride themselves on their empathetic core. They are the true meaning of “Never judge a book by its cover!”
