How to recognize SCORPIO
An encyclopedia describes a scorpion as a nocturnal
arachnid that attacks and paralyzes its paralyzes its
prey with a poison injected by the long, curved tail,
used for both defense and destruction. Its sting is
People often draw back visibly when someone says he
or she was born in November, murmuring. "Oh, you're
a scorpio! Either in frank fear, or in aw and respect.
Sometimes there's also a giggle that obviously refers
to the legendary scorpio passion. Scorpios are fed up
with these reactions to their sun sign, and who can
blame them? But they are ruthless and dangerous, right?
Wrong . It depends. First, you'd better learn how to
recognize the sign. In self-defense perhaps or because
you seek a really superior human being. Scorpio likes
to travel incognito. Thanks to his well controlled nature,
he usually succeeds, but there are a couple of short
cuts which will make it easier to penetrate his disguise
at midnight or at noon.
Look at the eyes . They can be green, blue, brown,
or black, but they'll piercing with hyponotic intensity.
Most people feel nervous and ill at ease under scorpio's
steady gaze. You'll have to break the spell and look
away first. He'll outsrate you every time. It's a foolproof
identification of the Pluto personality. Scorpio eyes
bore deeply into you, mercilessly, as if they're penetrating
your very soul. They are. Next listen to him speak.
The tone can be velvety soft, husky or sharply cutting,
the speech slow and measured or clipped and staccato
, but what he says will never be selfeffeacing. Scorpio
has total ego. He knows what he is and he knows what
he is not, and nothing anyone else thinks will change
this knowledge. Insults roll right off his back, and
compliments don't move him a fraction of an inch. He
needs no one to tell him his vices or his virtues. At
best, he'll calmly agree with your appraisal; at worst,
he'll suspect your motives.
Most Pluto people have powerful physiques. The features
are noticeably heavy or sharp, and clearly drawn. And
the nose is quite prominent, sometimes beak-shaped.
Ordinarily, the complexion is very pale, almost translucent,
and the brows are heavy and knit together over the bridge
of the nose. There's a crackling, electric vitality
about the very presence of a scorpio that gives him
away. As quite as he tries to be, such a vital force
can't be hidden completely. The males will have a heavy
growth of hair on the arms and legs, often with a reddish
cast. Most scorpios have darkish hair and eyes, but
don't overlook the frosty blonde types, of which Grace
Kelly and Billy Graham are excellent examples. Forsty
on the outside , that is. The poised surface calm of
the Pluto character is carefully designed to hide of
boiling inner nature.
It's important to remember that there is a particular
type of scorpio who moves and speaks rather quickly,
and appears to have an open, friendly manner. Look deeply
into his eyes and really think about some of his past
actions, his true behavior. He's really just playing
a game with all his happy talk. Inside, he's as tough
and determined as the more typical , poised Pluto people.
Perhaps he's even a shade more dangerous because his
disguise is better, and he fools you more easily. Start
treating him as Charlie-nice-guy who's completely harmless,
and you may be courting some trouble. Be on guard with
all Scorpio. I don't mean they're wicked. They're just
not soft or navie. Some scorpios, realizing that their
eyes expose their inner intensity, wear sunglasses frequently,
even at night.
Remark to a scorpio that he has a great talent which
will someday be recognized and he smoothly, casually
replies, "Yes, I know" Ask him if he'll do
you a favor, and the answer will be equally simple.
"Yes, of course I will" or "No, I can't
Yet, there's haunting sweetness about these people,
and often a gentle sympathy with the sick or despairing.
Scorpio's touch can be cool and tender, as well as hot.
His sun position gives him several paths to follow.
He can imitate the nocturnal scorpios, who will sting
others and even sting himself to death for the pure
pleasure of stinging or he can imitate the glorious,
soaring path of his symbolic eagle, who rises above
earthly limitations, and uses his strength wisely and
justly. Great generals like MacArthur, presidents like
Theodore Roosevelt and scientists like Madame Curie
and Jonas salk are eagles. More United states presidents
have been born under this sign than any other.
The gray lizards fail to draw on the power of Pluto
intheir natures-power that could lift them high above
all the unfortunate circumstances that surround them.
In the very teeth of tragedy, this awesome inner strength
could give them a new life in the sunlight. But they
seek the dark shadows and lie dormant, a pathetic waste
of the brilliant potential of their birthright. Still,
scorpio can never slide deep enough into the slime of
bitter depression to completely lose the power of Pluto.
It's never too late for the grazy lizard to transform
himself into an eagle. That kind of deep magic belongs
exclusively to every person born under the sun sign
of scorpio. All they need do is to call on it.
Typical eagles have no fear. In battle they'll lead
their men into the very face of death without a tremor.
Even the average Pluto man or woman bravely faces anything
from physical pin and poverty to ridicule failure with
a proud contempt and complete confidence in an inner
ability to overcome any blow.
Scorpio is intensely loyal to friends. "Greater
love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his
life for his friends" Some of them do this literally,
for friends, relatives or loved ones- in battle or in
a civilian crisis. The scorpio soldier leaps instantly,
instinctively, to brave the bullets and drag his buddy
to safety. The scorpio fireman gives his life to rescue
the child in the burning building sometimes it seems
Pluto people unconsciously seek violence deliberately,
as a challenge to their strength.
The scorpio health picture is typical of his nature.
He can destroy his body with excesses, melancholy or
hard work. But he can also built it back at will from
a critical illness. Pluto's power is that strong. Scorpios
are seldom sick, but when they are, it's usually serious.
A long rest and a change of attitude, with peaceful
acceptance replacing burning resentment, are the best
cures. They can't let well enough alone, and of course
they know more than the doctor and all the nurses. The
chief areas of attack for germs and accidents are the
reproductive organs, the nose, the throat, the heart,
spine back, circulatory system, legs and ankles. Varicose
Venis and accidents in sports are common. They should
avoid fire, explosive noxious fumes and radiation. Yet,
you'll find lots of them seek occupation s that find
flirt with danger along these very lines. Sometimes
they have chronic nose bleeds, or surgery is performd
on the nose for some reasons.
He's fiercely possessive of what he believes to be
his, including success, but his ambition is never obvious.
He quietly waits for the chance to move ahead all the
while he serves, knowing he is qualified for the position
above him. He takes control slowly, but very surely.
Scorpio can do just about anything he wants to do. If
he really wants it, it's most definitely no longer a
dream. The dark, magical and mysterious power of Pluto
turns desire into reality with cool, careful fixed intent.
Although a morbid desire to know the worst of sick
and depraved humanity can create a grazy lizardwho dabbles
in drugs,and cruelty, he can reverse the path to a life
of medicine, where drastic treatments with the same
symbols have a deep fascination for him. Although many
of the rumored sadistic surgeons are scorpios it's equally
true that many of the finest medical men in the entire
world are inspired by Pluto to heal both the mind and
the body, diagnosing and treating with strange, inscrutable
One of the strangest patterns in astrology is the death
of a relative in the family within either a year before
or the year after the birth in the family within the
year before or the year after. It happens at least ninety-five
percent of the time. Pluto's symbol is the triumphant
phoenix rising from its own smoldering ashes, and scorpio
personifles the resurrection from the grave. Both the
gray lizards and the stinging scorpions can become proud
eagles without ever revealing never tell. But he knows
the eternal truth of the circle contained in the symbolic
November's thistle is dangerous, yet it grows entwined
with the heavy,languid beauty of the scorpio honeysuckle.
Have you ever inhaled that sweet, overwhelming fragrances
on a still midsummer's night? Then you will know why
there are those who brave the thistles to seek the gentleness
of scorpio exquisite gentleness. The explosive passion
of Pluto has the rich, dark red wine color of the bloodstone.
But scorpio steel us tempered in a furnace of unbearable
heat until it emerges cool, satiny smooth and strong
enough to control the nine spiritual fires of scorpio's
