Scorpio Personality Profile:
Scorpios are extremely dynamic and energetic. They are given to powerful emotional extremes and are often driven by a powerful internal desire to achieve. Scorpios make excellent leaders because their desire to achieve greatness outweighs all else. Scorpios have a great love of life — and they excel at most things they do. Whether working or playing, Scorpios do it to the extreme — determined to “live life to the fullest”.
Individuals born under the astrological sign of Scorpio are often given to emotional outbursts, or periods of depression, anger or jealousy. Because of their intense desire to succeed, they can often be overly self-critical — blaming themselves for things they are not actually responsible for.
When Scorpios become angered by someone, they can take months (or sometimes years) to forgive and forget. As they say, “beware the sting of Scorpio”.
Scorpios tend to be very popular and well-liked. Their natural dynamism and high energy level are attractive qualities. They excel at athletics and competition of all kinds. They make natural leaders and are often looked up to as role-models in their fields.
Scorpios are also excellent problem-solvers, and are unlikely to “give up” when obstacles appear in their paths.
Scorpio at Work:
In the workplace, Scorpios are frequently found at the top. They tend to be aggressive, and goal-oriented — stopping at nothing to achieve their personal success. They also tend to be vindictive and combative to anyone who stands in their path.
Scorpios are extremely observant and analytical and like the desert scorpion, are extremely good at spotting opportunities others may have missed.
Scorpio in Love:
Scorpios tend to set their sights on someone they want to be with — and stop at nothing until that person is theirs. They are extremely passionate, emotional and given to intense relationships. When a Scorpio finally settles into a relationship, they tend to become much calmer and more balanced people — but the road to that stability can be a bumpy one, full of emotional outbursts, passion and sometimes heartbreak.
Scorpio must learn to set aside their natural jealousies and learn to trust — only then will Scorpio find peace.
The Moon in Taurus
The Taurus Moon influence gives rise to practicality in the areas emotions and the psyche. A person with this placement in their chart is slow to decide what their feelings are on a subject, but when they commit they typically give themselves 100%. Emotional stability and steadfastness may also be traits of those with a Taurus Moon. A potential negative influence exists in the tendency to smother those to whom they display affection.
This influence bestows an appreciation for the arts and culture; and may even indicate a smooth skill with words or one’s voice. This influence frequently indicates a predisposition for love of material wealth and gain, naturally leading to an affinity for business and a gift for managing money well. Their home may literally be their castle, with the Taurus Moon taking great pride in hearth and home — decorating it not flamboyantly, but well.
This influence is an unwaveringly romantic one - this chart frequently indicates partnering for life if other influences do not overpower this tendency. The Taurus Moon chart will love deeply, unreservedly, and with full commitment. Likewise, this influence makes one unlikely to stray romantically or sexually throughout the course of a relationship.
This influence also belies a deeply conservative nature when it comes to the realm of the romantic and emotional, with a need for security and resultant desire to avoid situations that may lead to conflict. The Taurus Moon in a chart may also give the individual a stubborn streak and make them extremely averse to change. Opinions and sentiments that do not disturb the status quo are the only ones which a Taurus Moon person is likely to embrace.
The Taurus Moon also brings a deep awareness of the senses - all sensory experiences matter a great deal to this individual, and this is partially where the love of finer things comes from. An unusual scent or vibrant painting is more likely to be noticed by a person with this influence in their chart - as such they may make excellent curators, sommeliers, and cooks (Or at least show an unusual appreciation for their corresponding skills).
Mercury in Scorpio
This placement makes the individual naturally curious to the point of obsession. While most people will read a news article once - the tendency of someone born with a Scorpio Mercury in their charts is to read a dozen articles on the same subject until they have fully exhausted their interest in the subject.
This natural penchant for research makes these individuals excellent journalists and academics, and quite often specialists in their topics of interest.
The appearance of Mercury in Scorpio is also a common indicator for both uncovering secrets and keeping secrets. That which is concealed holds a special fascination here. The Mercury in Scorpio placement can at times lack tact and may indicate a habit of speaking one’s mind — even when inappropriate.
Venus in Libra
The Venus in Libra influence can be one of the most emotionally stable influences in the Zodiac. This influence typically makes an excellent anchor of stability in relationships — especially when involved with more flighty or emotionally unstable types. It should be noted however, that a desire for equality is also indicated here. Those born under this placement will only be “rocks” of emotional stability as long as they are treated fairly by their partners.
This influence also brings more than a touch of the romantic. The Venus in Libra chart also encourages appreciation for the arts and beauty. A Venus in Libra placement may become overly preoccupied with the image of physical perfection and a love of the body.
Mars in Aries
Since Mars is a natural placement for Aries, those born under this influence will most likely be quite forceful by nature and constantly in motion. These individuals usually take action first and ask questions later.
This influence also causes these individuals to be impulsive, spontaneous, and perhaps too speedy at everything they do. Great physical energy usually accompanies this placement - they may never stop moving, and are frequently aggressive sexually.
Mars presence in Aries may lead to a sense of frustration with others who make long, convoluted plans, and may indicate difficulty in handling bureaucracy. This placement indicates a desire to lead and may hinder one’s ability to work well with others due to impatience and desire to dominate. This position may also be overly egotistical and overly impulsive. This impulsiveness may indicate an inability to finish projects and may indicate a tendency to stray from a relationship if the pace becomes too slow.
Jupiter in Gemini
The presence of Jupiter in Gemini typically indicates an open-mindedness about belief systems and differing philosophies, as well as a willingness to have open discourses about religion and faith. Jupiter’s presence in ‘the twins’ also promotes intellectual curiosity and an insatiable need to learn.
The Jupiter Gemini influence on curiosity and learning often leads to a broad knowledge on a variety of topics, and may lead one to generalize rather than specialize in their learning and areas of expertise.
Saturn in Capricorn
Capricorn is the natural home of Saturn, and as such all of the core traits of Saturn are inherent here. Career and finance will usually be the focus of this placement — frequently to the detriment of all else. This placement is highly desirous of power and will often go to great lengths to achieve it.
This position is not likely to be conducive to teamwork or cooperation. There is sometimes a ruthlessness in this placement that will help in a career, but it may be detrimental to making a lot of friends.
