It may or may not be of a surprise to anyone but I am a Scorpio..
According to this website, Scorpio identify with the following (I will make my comments in red):
Strengths: Resourceful, brave, passionate, stubborn, a true friend
I don’t know about resourceful & brave, but I can definitely identify with being a bit passionate & stubborn. I like to think I’m a true friend.
Weaknesses: Distrusting, jealous, secretive, violent
I’m not saying I’m known in the office with having a letter opener collection (I do but it doesn’t make me violent!). I also don’t think I’m secretive at all – maybe distrusting & jealous, depending on the situation.
Scorpio likes: Truth, facts, being right, longtime friends, teasing, a grand passion
I have one saying that I inherited from my dad “I have many faults but being wrong is not one of them”… I have few friends but the ones I have generally been in my life for a long time.
Scorpio dislikes: Dishonesty, revealing secrets, passive people
I definitely don’t like dishonest people.
Scorpio-born are passionate and assertive people. They are determined and decisive, and will research until they find out the truth. Scorpio is a great leader, always aware of the situation and also features prominently in resourcefulness.
What’s funny is that I see myself as an introvert but I am usually one of the first people to take action or organise everyone else, when required. I am in a supervisory role in my job so I guess I make an ok leader.
Scorpio is a Water sign and lives to experience and express emotions. Although emotions are very important for Scorpio, they manifest them differently than other water signs. In any case, you can be sure that the Scorpio will keep your secrets, whatever they may be.
I don’t know if I would say I live to ‘experience emotions’.. it can be very exhausting being such an emotional person. Also it’s weird that I am a water sign – I don’t even really like being in water – my showers are like about 5 minutes max and I certainly don’t go to the beach or swimming.. maybe I’m a defective Scorpio!
Pluto is the planet of transformation and regeneration, and also the ruler of this zodiac sign. Scorpio are known by their calm and cool behavior, and by their mysterious appearance. People often say that Scorpio-born are fierce, probably because they understand very well the rules of the universe. Some Scorpio-born can look older than they actually are. They are excellent leaders because they are very dedicated to what they do. Scorpios hate dishonesty and they can be very jealous and suspicious, so they need to learn how to adapt more easily to different human behaviors. Scorpios are brave and therefore they have a lot of friends.
Well I don’t see myself has brave and I don’t have a lot of friends, so they are wrong there. I have also been told that I don’t look as old as I am – but I think that comes down to good genes from both my folks. I can be a bit fierce when needed. I do hate dishonesty and being lied.
It’s hard to if I am a true Scorpio or not, I mean all these things can be read into in whatever way you want to interpret them.
