Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, born between October 23 and November 21. They are among the most misunderstood of all the horoscope signs because so much mystery surrounds their very persona, including their much talked-about sexual mystique.
Scorpios have a wonderful intensity about them, which helps explain why—one moment they are loved, and the next they can be hated. There are many things to know about them, especially if you are dating one or already in love with one. Here are some of their special qualities.
They love with great depth.
There is nothing superficial in the way they love a person. When they love, it is with a fierce intensity. But, first they must let their, almost impenetrable, guard down. They choose very carefully whom they will give their heart to. Being betrayed after they have opened their heart is one of their biggest fears. That is why they will constantly test a lover to make sure they are worthy. When they do chose to love a person, it’s a serious decision because they plan on loving and cherishing their partner until death does them apart.
Nobody does “intensity” better!
They enjoy socializing but are not much for “weather talk.” When they meet a person at a party they can be both introverted and extroverted depending on the topic of conversation and who attracts their interest. At first, they may seem quiet and intense, but they are always feeling their feelings. So, when they are feeling good, engaged and in the mood, they display their great sense of humor and can be the life of the party. When they are fully engaged with someone, they like to get straight to the point, preferring deep and meaningful discussions about any topic they are interested in. They don’t waste their time on small talk or idle gossip. Don’t ask a Scorpio what they think about something unless you’re prepared for a very blunt and sometimes tactless answer.
They are funny.
Scorpios have a blunt sense of humor, which can be offensive to some, but hilarious to others. If you are sensitive you might end up rolling your eyes, being shocked or finding your feelings hurt. Their sense of humor comes from a place of truth, so they enjoy witty, intelligent conversations. When a topic arouses their funny bony they can make a very insightful joke. Their type of humor is not likely to be light and slapstick. Scorpios have a quick-witted sense of humor that can be dark, prone to being acerbic and even sarcastic. Their intelligence and style of humor gives them the ability to see the irony in just about any topic they discuss with you. They can shake up any dinner party when they get going with shocking or titillating comments.
They are amazingly resourceful and never quit.
There is no sign in the zodiac more resourceful than Scorpios. They are modern day “MacGyvers” who can use whatever resources available to them to solve any problem. (Note: MacGyver was a television action hero who could thwart an enemy with his vast scientific knowledge—sometimes with little more than a paper clip and the duct tape in his pocket.) They are persistent and will relentlessly tackle any challenge, never quitting until they have reached their goal. For them—giving up is not an option, especially if they are in romantic pursuit.
