The Scorpion is passionate in a lot of fields in life:in her politics, in work, and in play. A peculiar intensity permeates her whole personality, giving her an extremely strong sense of purpose in life, and a determination to do nothing by halves. She must live life to the full, and will over-indulge her-self, not only in play, but in work, too.
She can be a very jealous person - again, not only in love. Whoever holds a position to which the Scorpio feels entitled will be disliked, and the Scorpio may even in extremeity resort to some kind of victimization or even cruelty. Her enourmously powerful energy gives her hidden depths which are often unsespected by less emotional people. When this force is properly channeled, it can give the Scorpio great qualities of endurance; she will battle against severe odds to win - sometimes to the point of trampling on others in the process.
The fact that the eagle is sometimes used as a symbol for this sign underlines not only this harsh tendency - the power to seize an unsuspecting prey - but the power also to rise above the difficulties, to soar away from any earthbound antagonism. This side of her personality will make the Scorpio revolt from too pedestrian or dull an occupation - something she can do almost too easily, for she is quick to adapt to turning points in her life: when she comes to such a point, she finds it easy to accept that one path had ended, and willingly turns to another.
She may even force herself to leave one road and embark on another, working hard to build a carrer and then, for reasons obscure to others as they are profound in her, destroy what she has built, and start again. A masochistic instinct may contribute to this patern of behaviour. Scorpions have great personal magnetism: there is always something exciting, dynamic and fasinating about them, and a certain mystery. Others feel it in the Scorpio's company,as they may feel the tremors of a volcano about to erupt.
