Scorpio - The Scorpion

Scorpio is symbolised by a Scorpion insect – a survivor and powerful adversary with a lethal sting to be feared. Being a Water Sign, they derive their strength from the psychic, emotional realm and are extremely clairvoyant and intuitive. As a Fixed Sign, they are extremely stubborn who almost never change their opinions – Scorpio as an enemy, has an intense power that does not back down. On the upside, you can’t have a better friend than a Scorpio – they will go through anything, enduring any hardship for people they like.  Planet Mars and Pluto co-rule Scorpio. Mars is the ancient God of War — passionate, aggressive and courageous. Pluto controls power and destruction therefore Mars and Pluto together allows Scorpios to bounce back after tragic loss or disappointments.
