The Scorpio personality will vary depending on the individual, but certain traits, like perseverance, determination and intensity, tend to show itself no matter the situation. This personality plays out in all of life's roles.
The Scorpio Personality
The Scorpio personality is a complex one as many Scorpios come across as aloof, even though buried deep inside, there is usually a smoldering cauldron of intensity. Scorpios hate to show their hand, so they often give off a cool and detached persona, but don't be fooled! Never doubt for one second that behind those shrugged shoulders and cool veneer lays a mass of seething emotion.
How Scorpio's Personality Affects Different Life Roles
This odd combination of fire and ice that is the signature of the Scorpio personality can show itself in a variety of situations.
Scorpio at Work
When it comes to analysis, research, and data assimilation, no zodiac sign can hold a candle to Scorpio. Just as a chatty Gemini is the perfect addition to your sales department, you'll want Scorpio seated firmly in the deep annals of the company, solving your most complex problems. You can expect the Scorpio employee to be driven and ambitious, able to work lengthy shifts (up to twelve hours at a time if need be), and to be a virtual genius when it comes to money. While Scorpio may be a tad reticent, no other can excel in a crisis the way this astrological sign can.
Scorpio in Love
The depth of Scorpio's personality really shines through when in love. Hopefully, Scorpio is in an emotionally safe relationship because if they are, they'll be able to express the full depth of their passion, intensity, and sensual nature. On the other hand, if you like to play it footloose and fancy free, turn elsewhere as you'll find Scorpio's intense and sometimes controlling nature completely unbearable. Scorpio will never:
- Forget a birth date or other important anniversary date.
- Fail to share their emotions and feelings.
- Leave, only doing so if the relationship is "over" in some way.
Fun With the Family
Scorpios love who they love with a tremendous amount of depth, and that goes for family members as well. Within the family structure, you can always count of Scorpio to help; there is little that Scorpio won't do for a family member that is in trouble.
Be that as it may, if there is bad blood between Scorpio and a family member, you can expect Scorpio to completely cut that individual off. Scorpio will literally view the situation as if that person has died. That may sound extreme, but there's no middle ground with Scorpio. If Scorpio thinks they've been betrayed, they won't relent until the other person says sorry.
Scorpio at Play
Scorpios are highly competitive. This sign wants to win no matter what they happen to be doing. There is no such thing as a "friendly" game of tennis with Scorpio, as you will soon find yourself scrambling out of the way of overhead smashes and ongoing sharp volleys.
Scorpio and Exercise
This sign is built to go the distance and can endure hours of sport long after their teammates have called it quits or are reaching for their water bottles. In truth, exercise is actually a great outlet for Scorpios because it allows them to realize their intensity and competitive nature in a positive way.Yoga is also extremely beneficial to Scorpios, and if they are not already a regular practitioner, they should seriously consider starting a mind- body program; the different poses and constant twisting and bends of yoga benefits Scorpio's lower body while helping them feel energized and centered.
Going Deeper Into the Scorpio Mystique
The most important thing to know about Scorpio is that they are magnetic. That's why it is so important that they consciously decide to soar like the sign's mythical phoenix and leave the sting of the scorpion only to those situations that truly warrant it.
Phoenix, Eagle, and Scorpion
Scorpio is the only sign that has three symbols associated with it- the mythic phoenix, the eagle, and the scorpion. How can one best interpret this fact? Scorpio truly has on foot in the present, one in the heavens, and a symbolical foot in the underworld. This gives the sign tremendous vision, and considerable strength when needed. If you are a Scorpio, or love a Scorpio, encourage them to take the "wider view", as this will be very beneficial to their overall psychological being.

The Complexity of Scorpio
Scorpio is a complex sign, but not more so than any other zodiac sign, and that is what helps to make astrology so intriguing. Each sign is "colored" by their planetary ruler(s), and each is distinctive and fascinating in their own way. In regards to Scorpio, this lens is filtered by the rulers Pluto and Mars, the planets of fire and ice. In this way, and through this perspective, it's easy to see why the Scorpio personality continues to fascinate.
