Btw I know it's hard to read with the background, but it was cool and I wanted to use it, ok?! you got a problem with that?...don't read it then. But um, you'll miss the good stuff!


Scorpio October 24 - November 22

According to the ancients, there are many variations of Homo Scorpius. This is testimonial to your well recognized complexity. The scorpion symbolizes a hotheaded warrior who is violently passionate, bluntly sarcastic, egotistical, controlling and manipulative. The soaring eagle symbolizes the calm but intense, focused, determined, intuitive and perceptive Scorpio who often develops healing, clairvoyant, and counseling abilities. The sacred serpent, an Egyptian emblem of cosmic wisdom, was grounded in earthly reality, but penetrated the higher levels of consciousness. The serpent periodically sheds outworn habits, beliefs, and illusions to facilitate growth through rebirth. The phoenix is the confident, courageous, positive transformer that transcends the personal ego. The sympathetic, generous dove, a natural healer, is infused with love, which it transmits to others. Your keyword is TRANSFORMATION. You likely will experience all the traits of your sign's varied symbols to some extent through the psychological death and regeneration process. Contrasts and extremes of virtue and vice are imbedded in every Scorpio, waiting for employment or transcendence. It can be a difficult journey or a blissful one depending on your choices. There's no middle-of-the-road playing around with you. Your feelings are very strong and unyielding, and you can be extremely sensitive and willful. It would be good for you to work at being cooperative.

You are secretive and don't establish bonds until you're sure of others' trustworthiness. Then, you loosen up and reveal your keen insight and fine sense of humor. You approach love emotionally and dream of fairy tale romance. You want to be with someone who's artistic, spiritual, inspiring, helpful, peaceful, idealistic, refined and perceptive. You might meet your type in the theater, museums, nightclubs, hospitals, prisons, chemical labs, spiritualistic churches, at sea, the beach, the pool, dance events, aquariums, gas stations, film or photography studios, retreats, or even in shoe stores.

You can be a good organizer and leader, because you enjoy pioneering new projects, have the foresight to make long-range plans and can direct them to the finish. Patience, tolerance and compassion are the keys to your success. You could find satisfying work in the martial arts, police force, armed forces, surgery, dentistry, alternative healing, psychic counseling, psychiatry and mechanics. Working in the entertainment industry could provide an excellent outlet for your creative or artistic abilities.

Inner conflict can get you down psychologically and physically. If you suppress upsetting personal issues, they can build up and become toxic to your psyche and body. That could affect your reproductive organs, digestive system and head area, including the eyes and sinuses. Find outlets to release tension and renew your spirit. Music, dance, exercise, yoga, meditation, acupuncture and nature visits, especially to the ocean, can help alleviate internal chaos and restore your physical equilibrium. When you feel like withdrawing, some emotional turmoil deep within probably needs to be addressed and worked out of your system. It may be time to shed your skin.

Scorpio is the eighth Sign of the Zodiac, and you shouldn't take that lightly. You shouldn't take Scorpios lightly, either. Those born under this Sign are dead serious in their mission to learn about others. There's no fluff or chatter for Scorpios, either: these folks will zero in on the essential questions, gleaning the secrets that lie within. Scorpios concern themselves with beginnings and endings, and are unafraid of either; they also travel in a world which is black and white and has little use for gray. The curiosity of Scorpios is immeasurable, which may be why they are such adept investigators. These folks love to probe and know how to get to the bottom of things. The fact that they have a keen sense of intuition certainly helps. It's the Scorpion which symbolizes Scorpios, and it's no accident. Much like the Scorpion would rather kill itself than be killed, those born under this Sign are the ones who are in ultimate control of their destiny. It is life on the Scorpion's terms, too, since these folks promote their agenda (they are quite the executives) and see to it that things go forward. Others may find this overbearing (it can be) and even self-destructive, but that's the beauty of the Scorpion: these folks have tremendous regenerative powers, much like the literal Scorpion can lose its tail and promptly grow a new one. Fearless Scorpions rarely lose, per se, they just keep on going, since they are stubborn and determined to succeed (this Scorpio trait is in keeping with the Fixed Quality assigned to this Sign). Scorpios work as hard as they do so they can someday sit back and feel satisfied with themselves. These folks are intense, passionate and filled with desire. They're also complex and secretive, so don't expect to get much out of them, lest they become suspicious and exit stage left. It's best not to bet against Scorpios, either, since these folks are surprisingly resourceful.

Scorpio is ruled by the Planets Mars and Pluto. Mars was the God of War in ancient Roman mythology and is the first (and most ancient) ruler of Scorpio. When Pluto was discovered in the 20th century, it was also assigned to this Sign. Pluto was known as the God of the Underworld in ancient Roman times, so when coupled with Mars, expect some intense energy to head toward Scorpions here on Earth. This planetary combo makes for people who are motivated, penetrating and aware. Scorpions don't miss much, since they are highly attuned to the vibrations of others. They are intuitive, probing and very focused on knowing who's who and what's what. Scorpions can lose their temper (and even become vengeful) when someone gets in their way, so it's best to give them plenty of room. Remember, they're unafraid, and a loss today simply means an opportunity for victory tomorrow. The Element associated with Scorpio is Water. As opposed to the 'roiling seas' seen in other Water Signs, a better motto for Scorpions would be 'still waters run deep.' Those born under this Sign are as emotional as their waterborne brethren, it's just that they're not as likely to show it. The Scorpio's emotions are repressed, kept under cover. Again, secrets to be used another day. That said, be aware that these folks are clever, perceptive and always in the mix. Their ability to see into things can sometimes be a curse for Scorpions, however, since they can take an insignificant matter and turn it into a huge slight. Beware the Scorpion who feels crossed! These folks can turn vindictive in no time flat. Luckily, once Scorpions catch their breath, they will return to their usual determined and loyal (albeit strong-willed) ways. Finally, while Scorpions aren't above some subtle manipulation to get what they want, they'd much rather take a scientific, even mystical path. The Scorpio-born are powerful and passionate, qualities which serve them well, as long as they don't let them deteriorate into self-indulgence or compulsion.

Scorpios love competition in both work and play, which is why they'll air it out in sports and games. Extreme sports are right up the Scorpion's alley, as is most anything which will test their mettle. They've got to have an adversary, since it makes the game that much more fun. The Scorpion's colors? Powerful red and serious black. When it comes to love, though, Scorpions soften up a bit and are caring and devoted with their lovers, even if they do hold on a bit tight. Scorpions are also lusty in the extreme (how else?), so they need to be mindful of their reproductive organs. The great strength of the Scorpio-born is in their determination, passion and motivation. Scorpions don't know the word quit, which is why they usually get the job done. A powerhouse? Like no other.

2000 Forecast
What's in store for Scorpio

By Kelli Fox, Astrology.Net
People are lucky to count you in their corner, as you're determined, loyal and brave. Depth of thought and great sincerity also make you a great ally to have. You've got a probing mind that can cut deep below the surface level to get to the heart of the matter. Passion is your middle name (if not your first), since you live life intensely. A highly sensual person, you tenaciously go after your goals and desires. Others are drawn to your sexy magnetic appeal, but they'd be sheer fools to ever cross you. While your magnetic force and strong will can be stunning, your mean streak of vengeance can stun your enemies like a Scorpion's stinger (Scorpion - Scorpio - get it?). You have incredible hidden depths that only a special few are privy to and have the pleasure of knowing.



She could write a book about how to walk and talk and look-when enticing a man. This smoldering voluptuary dwells in the valley of her desires and is dedicated to the satisfaction of her body's yearnings. Only a low-sexed male fails to respond to the slumbering passion in her eyes and voice. Without speaking a syllable, she can spell sex in all the known human dialects.

When she meets an attractive man, she knows just how to cut him out of the herd, and it isn't long before he is too dazzled to notice any other woman. He will be well advised not to struggle. It will be no contest-a case of an irresistible force against a highly movable object. Even if she isn't good-looking, her large hypnotic eyes will fix him with a dominating stare. He'll know just how the poor hare feels when hypnotized by a cobra.

She resents a stingy escort. Wherever she goes, she likes to travel first class, and you'd better pay up with a smile. If you are a little taken aback by her casual way with money, don't show it. Or you and your money will soon be forgotten.

She has enough energy for several women. She likes to work and play hard. In any kind of activity she tends toward excess. That can be fascinating but exhausting. You'll never be bored, but may pine for a more quiet, placid life.

She takes love seriously. Like the male of the species, she is a creature of her passions. But this does not always relate directly to her sex; her passion for life exists independent of any man. This makes her irresistible to men, who would like to subdue her and make her dependent. Even when they succeed, they are unlikely to penetrate the secret depths of her hidden sensuality.

In the bedroom she is demanding, and her standards of performance are hard for many men to meet. She has little patience for those who don't measure up or leave her feeling short-changed. On the other hand, she is most efficient with those who merely suffer from psycological inhibitions, and can and will perform wonders for the impotent male-if his impotence is in his mind. This isn't altruism on her part. The way she looks at it, she's simply doing what's necessary to help him satisfy her.

She has a shrewd mind and is gifted with remarkable intuition. Overly critical and exacting, she subjects both would-be friends and lovers to a prolonged scrutiny before accepting them into her scheme of life. She sees deep into other people's motivations, while remaining impenetrable to their probings. Her real character is not easily discern and may always remain her secret.

She is stubborn about getting her way. And she has the patience and ability to dissimulate to achieve her goals. All her moves are planned carefully to reach her objective. It takes a powerful will and real determination to resist her, for she knows what she wants and will press toward it with unremitting force. She cannot be diverted, nor will she adapt to changing circumstances.

WARNING: her intense emotional nature, if frustrated, can become vengeful and destructive. Betrayed, she makes a most dangerous enemy. Hell hath no fury like a Scorpio scorned. She has no scruples in seeking revenge on one who has been unworthy of her trust. She wants not only to punish the offender but to humiliate and degrade him.

Jealousy is her worst fault. She expect her lover to reserve all his admiration for her. She finds rivals and intrigues where none are to be found. At a party, if her escort spends a few minutes in private conversation with an attractive female, she decides that he's arranging a secret rendezvous-and acts accordingly. And she isn't the type to stand by quietly in a corner pretending to be a lamp. She will descend in full ravening fury.

She despises weakness or anyone who crumples under pressure. For such types she has all the compassion of a middle linebacker. If there's an opening in your defenses, she'll find it. And if you want to stay close to her, you must be able ro "take it," because she can dish it out.

Favorably disposed, she treats a lover royally. But her mood changes(and it will), she flays him to the bone. Her quarrels are always at high-decibel rating. If you haven't made up the quarrel before parting, don't call the next day as if nothing had happened. You'll feel as though you're talking to a complete stranger on a crossed telephone line.

One thing you can be sure of: she is deeply emotional, highly sensitive, and fiercely loyal to the one she loves. She will make great sacrifices for anyone who really engages her affections. If a man meets her halfway, she will be his forever.

Scorpio women make loyal mistresses who will defend you in public, fight for you in the most adverse conditions, and scorn what the neighbors say or think. But don't whine or weaken, for then she can turn on you.

Marriage? As you've probably guessed by now, it can be heaven or hell. There is no middle road. Remember-this is the most extreme sign of the zodiac. She a formidable woman. Faint hearts had better steer clear.

Scorpio Woman's Sex Life

A long night ahead, fellows. Pace yourselves.

She may begin by whispering provocative obscenities into your ear. Merely talking about sex moves her toward orgasm. She's the one who insists on that oversized waterbed or one of the large round beds that have neither head or foot and so accommodate any position with comfort. She's an activist in the bedroom. She will do anything to make the night memorable.

She is inquisitive, searching, and experimental. No matter how jaded you are about sexual procedures, some of her impetuous actions will surprise you. She wants you to enjoy sex as much as she does, and she enjoys it with an intensity that approaches the ecstatic. This is the sexiest sign in the zodiac.

Erotic, demanding, she requires a mate of equal ardor for complete fulfillment. The clinical approach, however, is not for her. Her behavior is guided wholly by instinct. No book will ever convince her that sex is merely a system of yoga exercises. She would rather go to bed with even a bad lover than with a good book.

She is a caress for any man's ego. When she is excited physically, she shows it, and this in turn will fire his passions. She likes to keep making love for a long time, and is able to impose her own wishes on an otherwise too quickly impulsive male. For she knows that eroticism consists of much more than mere physical act of lovemaking. Even the most minute details are important, and she will make him fully aware of their importance.

~AHEM! ......YES, WELL....'NUFF SAID! hehehe
