Water is their element, which points to emotions.
Scorpio is the master of the self, who is intense, dynamic, powerful, dominating, passionate and Loyal. But they can also be jealous and vindictive.
A man born in the zodiac sign of Scorpio, is the product of a very strong will. Governed by Mars, the fiery planet, a Scorpio man is a born fighter. Pluto, his other governing planet, adds an element of mystery to his character. It can be said categorically that all attributes essential for making strong leaders find their special place in his character. He is an extremely effective planner, organizer and achiever, who can deploy resources, steer people and succeed in whatever endeavor he undertakes. Courage is perhaps the most fundamental of qualities, required especially for fighting and winning. A Scorpio man has an indomitable courage and is brave to the core. Whatever be the task on hand and whatever he may be up against, he takes it head on. Even uphill tasks, he can face with fierce determination and fight them to the finish, with all his might. Scorpio men are ambitious and it is this ambition which remains as their driving force, right through. Wealth, success, authority, position, power and social standing – any or all of these can act as their key motivators. They will look for the Moon and will aim even for the stars, and work towards their target with unfailing confidence. They are dynamic and remain intensely focused on their tasks, neither wavering nor cowed down by criticisms or temporary setbacks. Once a Scorpio man decides on a mission, it is next to impossible to deflect him from his chosen path. His tenacity is so immense.
With a magnetic personality and irresistible charm, Scorpio men are natural commanders. They are instinctive and also intuitive, who can judge a situation, read the minds of the people, expect the unexpected and take decisions at the opportune moments, which will generally prove to be right and appropriate, as future unfolds. However, they are not as hardhearted as they appear to be. They are mature individuals, who are balanced and considerate, and are also interesting personalities with wit and wisdom. They have a strong self-esteem, and being faithful and standing by their commitments, find important place in their heart. They can be counted to stand by one through thick and thin, once they promise. They are passionate and one can feel this quality in all their activities. Going by their such aggressive traits, it may sound strange, but it is a fact that they have a spiritual orientation too.
Scorpios are very strong personalities and to no surprise, their negative traits are also as strong.
Scorpio men can be possessive, demanding and dominating. And these can lead them to extreme jealousy. Once envious, they can become suspicious and insecure. They are also highly sensitive and can be very easily hurt, even by some normal and unintentional words or behaviour from others. With their self-respect badly bruised, they may get disturbed, lose their peace of mind and will try to get even with those who dared to ‘insult’ them. Ruthless and vindictive, they may unleash their ‘scorpion sting’ with all the force at their command. It is also difficult to fathom their mind, as they don’t trust people easily and are not very open. Thus, they consciously add an element of mystery around their personalities and can thus present themselves as being secretive. They are result oriented and will go to any extent for achieving their objectives. This can make them unemotional and manipulative, as they can cleverly use people to their best advantage, riding roughshod over them.
Scorpio man will bring great passion to his love life too, and will treat his lady-love nothing less than a Goddess. As a family man, all his positive characteristics will come into generous play, as he will remain a faithful and devoted husband, and a responsible parent.
But his suspicion, jealousy, dominating instinct and mysterious nature can put strain on tender family relationships.
If they can only deploy their celebrated strengths of strong will, courage and action orientation to their best advantage, and have a conscious control over their negative traits like jealousy and vindictiveness, the Scorpio men can become imposing individuals, well admired and celebrated.
