The scales have tipped!
It’s time to say goodbye to the soft and gentle tones of Libra season, for now, the darkness rises. The Sun has sailed a little further on its journey around the Zodiac and has reached the mysterious sign of Scorpio (cue collective sharp intake of breath!)
But for you lovely Scorpio-born people, Scorpio season means your solar return is arriving. Which also means it’s your birthday month! So if you were born between October 23 and November 22, then get ready to celebrate!
Yet as much as we love you, Scorpio, we know you get a bad rap. Maybe it’s your off-the-scale intensity or the (we’re not intimidated, honest) sexual energy you ooze from every pore. Or maybe it’s just cos your birthday’s so close to Halloween?!
Anyway, just like sibling water signs Cancer and Pisces, we know you can’t help having the kind of intuitive insight that feels like you’re gazing into our souls…! And in honor of all the other unique and wonderful traits you have, here are 15 reasons you’re our favorite sign of the Zodiac (well, one of them ;)
1. They’re Passionate
And OMG time with someone passionate is time well spent!
It doesn’t really matter what your Scorpio friend is into – could be a quirky hobby (competitive dog grooming? Gluten-free baking?) or maybe it’s a TV boxset they’ve just discovered. The point is, passion is infectious and we could all do with a little more of it in our lives!
2. They’re Devoted
…And the passion doesn’t stop! The Scorpio personality is devoted like none other. (except maybe fellow fixed signs Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius). Commitment is a trait that comes naturally. These firm-hearted folks will stick with a plan (and a relationship) to the very end.
3. Emotions are their Navigation System
There’s very little wondering what do to next, or doubting their previous choices with this Zodiac sign. This is a Horoscope that’s directed by emotions, which makes it easy for them to stay on track and trust their decisions. So we trust them and their instincts too!
4. Scorpios are Mysterious
…Which makes their personalities SO intriguing to be around! You never really know what they’re thinking, or what they’re about to do next. But far from making us feel insecure, a friendship with a Scorpio is a lot like being in a magnetic field that you can’t quite escape from… and don’t really want to!
5. They have a Razer-Sharp Bullshit detector
Don’t even try. The Scorpio Zodiac Sign can detect even a tiny white lie from a mile away.
6. Scorpios Can Keep a Secret
If there’s something you need to share but really shouldn’t… Or if you’ve done something that NOBODY can find out about? You’re safe – tell it to your Scorpio friend and this is one secret that will go no further.
7. They Tell it Like it is
…But there’s no pussy-footing around the truth when it matters. A friend with this hard-hitting Horoscope will tell it like it is, no cosseting and no rose-tinted specs.
8. They are Supernaturally Intuitive
Along with the Zodiac’s other water signs (Cancer and Pisces), the traits of this Astrology are pretty much psychic. The Scorpio personality traits of intuition and insight can make a friendship with a Scorpio feel a lot like you’re an open book. Wide-open. Which, on the other hand, makes communication a walk in the park!
9. Scorpios are Fearless
This Astrology may not have the firey spontaneity of Aries, or the light-footed freedom of Sagittarius (though a friend born in the very last degrees of the sign of the Scorpion could). Instead, there’s something deep and undaunted about these people, which means fear doesn’t enter their vocabulary.
10. They are Highly Observant
This is a Zodiac sign that will notice. They’ll notice your new haircut, your new jewelry, or that spring in your step that could pass other less perceptive friends by. And in relationships, absolutely nothing will elude them.
11. Scorpios are Super Choosy About Who They’re Friends With
… So you know that when you’re chosen for friendship by someone born under the Scorpio Zodiac sign, you‘ve been CHOSEN! Friends under this Horoscope aren’t befriended by accident.
12. Friends With A Scorpio? Then You’re Friends for Life(times)
Possessive? Naaaah. We’re talking loyal to the end. This is a relationship that will span lifetimes. So don’t be surprised if your Scorpio friendship starts to feel like it’s reverberating through multiple lifetimes… It probably is.
13. Scorpios are Charming to the MAX
When you’re together with a Scorpio, it’s like you’re the only person in the room. These seductive and alluring folks seem to say all the right things, at all the right times, and it feels SO good!
14. They Can be Manipulative
Yes, they can! But before you jump on the comments like being manipulative is a negative trait, hear me out! Being able to manipulate a situation means getting the best out of it.
So if you’re on a highway to nowhere, you can trust your good friend the Scorpio to know just how to pull the right strings at the right time, to ensure that the bounty starts to fall from the sky.
And if people can’t keep up (hence feeling that they’re the ones being manipulated), hey, maybe they need to pay a little more attention!?
15. They’re the Kings (or Queens) of Transformation!
Ruled by planet Pluto, it’s no surprise that like folks these know how to reinvent themselves. The Scorpio symbol of the Phoenix burns to the ground, then rises from the ashes – a lot like your favorite Scorpionic friend. We’re not saying they’re self-destructive (don’t we all have this trait, just a little?) They’re absolute masters of transformation. Which means they’re incredible at picking themselves up and starting again.
So do you have a close friendship with a Scorpio? Recognize any of these traits in their personality?
Or maybe you were born under this enigma of an astrological sign? In which case, tell us… did we get you right?
