All about Scorpio
The eighth sign of the zodiac, Scorpios are known for their intensity, passion, and focus on achieving their goals. Initially reserved but fiercely passionate once you get them to open up, Scorpios can be some of your best friends – or worst enemies. With their friends, they’re a power couple, a lifetime bond that others are jealous of. If you betray or hurt them though, watch out. The Scorpio energy can be vengeful and obsessive around those who have wronged them.
With their dominant body part being the crotch, Scorpios have an intense sexual energy around them and are not afraid to show it. They enter life and friendships headfirst and if you can’t handle that, you may get hurt.
In pursuit of their goals, Scorpios are fearless and unstoppable. They accept their flaws and set them aside so that they can achieve their goals. With high self awareness, some Scorpios have a dark side filled with some of their hidden desires that rarely sees the light.

Though small, the scorpion is fierce and wields extreme power. The scorpion is tenacious and unwilling to let go of it’s mission – no matter the consequences. Residing primarily in caves and dark places, Scorpio natives are known for their initial reserved personas.

Although Scorpio’s go about their ways with a fiery passion, their ruling element is water. As the second sign ruled by the water element, Scorpio takes the intuitive feel of Cancer and focuses it into a stream of powerful energy. Just as the tides go in and out, Scorpios can be famously unpredictable. Be on their good side and you’re golden. But be careful if you wrong them – they’ll came after you with a flood of emotion and negative energy.
Scorpio natives are known for their truth finding capabilities. When they see dark and murky waters, they’re the first ones to dive underneath the surface and discover the truth. This makes it hard to hide your true feelings from the Scorpios around you.
In our darkest hours, Scorpio gives us the energy to wade into the unknown and know we’ll be ok.
Scorpio Ruling Planet: Pluto
While Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, there is an interesting fact. Because Pluto wasn’t discovered until 1930, Scorpio’s ruling planet used to be Mars. Mars is the God of War and known for charging into battle with a fiery passion.
Pluto is known for being the god of the underworld. Commonly described as the planet of power and transformation, Pluto encompasses all areas of life from birth to death to the after life. Just as people pass through these stages, Scorpio natives are known for having to transform themselves several times throughout their life. This process allows them to grow and heal in the pursuit of their mission.
