Characteristics and Personality of Scorpio

Among all signs, you’re one of the most sensitive and intuitive. Because of your fears of loss and deep awareness of all that could go wrong in life, you need to feel protected and safe at all times.

Those who know you well and have made it into your trusted circle can count on your fierce loyalty and cooperation. However, you usually test people and situations for quite a while in order to develop trust.

You have inborn gifts for scientific investigation, because your interest doesn’t wane with time and you’re determined to discover the secrets of the cosmos, as well as human consciousness.


Another amazing quality that makes you stand out in a crowd, dear Scorpio, is your capacity to withstand painful transformations that lead to new soul knowledge.

When you overcome your fears with courage, your true talents are highlighted and shine forth.

Parashara, one of fathers of Jyotish (or Vedic astrology), has called you “a particularly determined individual.” When you put your mind on a project, you won’t let go until to see it through. Your ruling planet Mars gives enough stamina for getting to the bottom of your to-do list, as well as all projects and endeavors.

Your powerful (and usually hidden) emotions make it hard for others to see the true you. But you are a sensitive soul, a sincere friend and a music lover. You can be both forceful and independent, which allows you to complete all your tasks on time.

Birth Stars

The following stars indicate additional qualities of Scorpios.

Vishaka: Star ruled by Jupiter, the planet of expansion and inspiration, and Indra, king of the Gods. Another ruler of Vishaka is Agni, the primordial God of sacred fire. People born in Vishaka have leadership abilities and their focused intentions make them both patient and successful in their chosen fields. The energy of Vishaka brings monetary gains and makes them passionate.

Anuradha: Star ruled by Saturn, planet of old age and delay, and Mitra, the Vedic God of Friendship. Planets in Anuradha make one intuitive and intelligent. This star makes one capable of organizing large groups for both personal and social benefits. Anuradha brings a subdued energy that sometimes turns into sadness and pessimism. Often Anuradha brings fame and recognition thanks to a capacity for very hard and focused work.

Jyeshta: Star ruled by the planet Mercury and Indra, the king of the Gods. These rulers bestow great intelligence and courage to those who are influenced by this nakshatra (or star). Generosity and success are also traits of Jyeshta’s brilliance. Those born in this star should avoid excessive irritability.
