In Western Astrology, Scorpio is considered a “feminine”, negative and introvert sign along with the other five even-numbered signs of the Zodiac: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer and Pisces.

Scorpio is a very bright constellation located in the southern hemisphere and can easily be viewed through binoculars. It contains many bright sky objects such as nebulae and star clusters.

The Story of Scorpio the Scorpion
The Constellation of Scorpio
There are many stories surrounding the legend of Scorpio, but Orion seems to be at the center of them all.

Orion was a Greek giant with killer looks and the ability to have his way with any woman. He was an expert hunter and often bragged about his conquests, of both the animal and female varieties.

The most prevailing myth surrounding the connection between Scorpio and Orion goes something like this: When Orion “conquered” the goddess Eos, Apollo heard of his boasting and became enraged. Apollo was the protector of animals, so he knew Orion was a hunter and he sent a scorpion to sting and kill him.

In the end, they were both immortalized by being placed among the stars as constellations. However, they were placed on opposite sides of the sky to prevent any more trouble between the two.

Mars and Pluto
The Ruling Planets of Scorpio
Scorpio is ruled by the Planet Mars and the dwarf planet Pluto. In mythology, Mars is named for the God of War. Although Pluto has been down-graded from a true planet, astrologers believe that it still holds a powerful ruling force over Scorpio.

Those ruled by Mars and Pluto tend to be ambitious, organized, powerful, stubborn and sexually driven.

Mars and Pluto are said to give Scorpios their power, fierceness and determination.

Scorpio Compatibility

Are you a Scorpio in love? Are you in love with a Scorpio? What do the stars have in store for you?

Scorpio men and women can come across as dark and mysterious. They know how to seduce the object of their desire, so they are easy to fall for. They want a committed relationship, but they are impossible to dominate and become uneasy with anyone who shows emotional vulnerability.

Once they are in a relationship, Scorpios are devoted and loyal, but will quickly become jealous if they feel that their love is threatened. A lover will be rewarded with intense passion and will never be bored, in the bedroom or out, but must be willing to focus exclusively on their Scorpio mate.

Scorpio PostersSCORPIO WOMAN
Alluring and confident but won’t be dominated
The best word to describe the Scorpio woman is passion. She is passionate in every area of her life, professionally and personally. She will devote herself to her lover with complete loyalty, but she will not be controlled or dominated. If a man is looking for a woman who will be putty in his hands, forget about trying to settle down with a Scorpio girl.

She is alluring and mysterious, naturally attracting men with her sex appeal and charm. She is full of confidence, often successful and drawn to power.

While a female Scorpio tends to be secretive and full of mystery, she is very intuitive when it comes to others and is quick to find out everything about her potential lover. She needs to feel in control of her relationship and will be quick to anger if she suspects that her partner is straying. Once a man loses her trust, he most likely will never regain it.

The Scorpio woman is very strong. When facing trials, she recovers quickly, learning and becoming even stronger through life’s circumstances. The man who can commit to her will find himself caught up in a whirlwind of passion and intensity.

A real charmer but prone to jealousy

Scorpio desires to have the very best in all areas of his life. He often has a successful career and enjoys the finer things in life. This spills over into his love life, as he tends to seek out a trophy girlfriend or wife and lays claim to her as his own. He will be very possessive of his woman and prone to jealousy.

The Scorpion is extremely romantic and knows how to make his woman feel like the only one in the room. He will be sure to sweep her off her feet. However, he wants complete devotion and will react strongly to any hint of infidelity, including harmless flirting, from his significant other.

He can be quick to temper, especially when he feels like something is being taken from him. The bouts of jealousy may seem extreme and scary to potential lovers, but this is how Scorpio shows his love and devotion. He needs to feel secure and unthreatened or he will move on without a second thought.
