Scorpios are the most intense of the signs. That their ruling planet is Pluto should tell you something. They operate on multiple levels; intrigue, sarcasm come naturally to them. You can recognize a Scorpio by the penetrating gaze they will give you - enough to light something on fire, or smother something completely, depending.
All this intensity does not necessarily signal a strength of confidence, it rather reflects the potency of their feelings, of the emotional issues inside of the them. Their sexuality is a good example of this. People often say that Scorpios are the most intense in bed, and so it would fit with their sun sign characterization. Their intensity in bed, their consumption by sensuality, is a measure of the depth of the forces at work inside them.
They have a great respect, and perhaps mistrust of power. Vociferous one-on-one, they can be downright guarded, diplomatic, watchful in unsure situations, or around strong folk.
Traditionally, Scorpios are said to operate on three spiritual levels:Their sarcasm and subtlety can be withering. Sometimes, they like to see people squirm.
- The Scorpion
- The Eagle
- The Dove
On the other hand, you will find their friendship sympathy quite ready.
