Scorpio Men vs. Scorpio Women: It’s the shadow that separates the men from the women in Scorpio, and accepting the shadow gives one power. Women often have more trouble owning their power, but less fear in expressing their emotions and their vulnerability.

It doesn’t matter what the challenge, they surrender to a project and in so doing learn everything about it. They allow themselves to be taught by the experience – a key to success. Hard workers, Scorpios prefer to put in the hours rather than sit by the sidelines; it helps them feel focused and alive. They love to be on the edge of life, never playing it safe. Gifted with a discerning eye, they can see the talents and faults of others immediately as well as pick out the one thing of value in a garage sale. When they’re your friend, they are there for the good times and bad. If they’re your enemy, move out of town.
The Negative Traits of a Scorpio: Scorpios want things their way and when they don’t have enough consciousness to care about others, then they can be mean and cruel, even to those they love. They need to be right and have others respect them even if they don’t deserve it. Into revenge, they don’t forget people who have hurt them and they vow to themselves to get even. Loners, they can live isolated lives. But when they do connect with others, the less evolved Scorpio will find a way to use everyone they know.
Women’s Fashion: Scorpios are bold and dangerous and so they often choose dark colors like black, deep purple and burgundy to show off their assets and their power. When a Scorpio woman enters a room, she commands it. Extreme by nature it shows in their clothes -- the halter top may be too tight and the mini-skirt that shows off her legs too short. You can be sure she’s wearing a pair of high heel boots, one of her favorite accessories along with black lace stockings and no underwear. They have a love of being naked. And when they do put on clothes, lingerie is their favorite item, because it works under clothes and in the bedroom. Scorpios love sex; their sign rules it and they are not shy when it comes to desiring love and passion. Whatever you do, don’t put them in a box - our siren can also dress romantically and professionally, just with her special twist to the outfit. Her business suit may have the blouse unbuttoned one inch too low. The finishing touches are dark sunglasses that keep them mysterious and you wondering who they are.

They like to look tough and dangerous and can go for chains, studs and spikes. Of course, leather is a favorite. Capable of more than one look, a Scorpio knows how to transform themselves for a special occasion. If it’s formal, he’ll fit the part to perfection and even get the gossip going. Left alone, the least amount of clothes makes him happy. Men in Fashion: Leonardo DiCaprio, Calvin Klein, Prince Charles, Ted Turner.
Personal Growth & Spirituality: Leave it to a Scorpio to find the path to spirituality through power and authority. Perhaps it gives them insight into the challenges of being God. When a Scorpio is spiritual they are channels for the universe, receiving messages from the other side. Their intuition is so strong that it’s difficult to deny that another invisible world exists. They know it's true, but it's hard to turn over their power and trust to something they can’t see and touch.
Career & Goals: Scorpios are intense and capable of handling emergencies. Need a complicated brain surgery, a terrorist negotiator, or a bomb diffused? Trust me, you want a Scorpio for the job. Scorpios are able to block out distractions, concentrate, and focus like a laser beam. They are curious and are often drawn to mysteries—you would never want to be cross-examined or interrogated by a Scorpio for they are not only intimidating, but also very intuitive. Natural psychologists, they are fascinated by what makes anything tick including you. Drawn to the abnormal and what others disregard or discard as unimportant, they make fabulous detectives and can turn a career out of what others throw away. It’s better for them to be their own boss, because taking orders from anyone is not something that works for them.
Best Careers: Detective, lawyer, educator, scientist, surgeon, physicist, psychologist, designer, law, humanitarian organizations or charitable foundations.
Careers to avoid: Anything you perceive as shallow or materialistic; anything that is micromanaged by others.
Relationships: Scorpios want love -- the unconditional kind. They don’t want to compromise, but I guarantee they'll have to. You’ve got to love them no matter what they do. It’s a challenge that is not meant for the weak-hearted. Scorpios make great partners when they share a mission and a vision with their mate. When the focus is not on who’s in control, but what we can accomplish, then it works like magic. Scorpios need someone who can be close and intimate as well as independent and alone. Remember, they’re the masters of extremes. So if you don’t mind a roller coaster of emotions and intensity, the most tender of feelings and the most hurtful of truths, then a Scorpio is for you.
