Happy birthday Scorpio, thirty minus one

I’ve never quite believed in any of the daily horoscopes that are in the daily papers or women’s magazines predicting my day or week ahead. Mystic Meg style predictions elude me; “tonight Scorpio a sexy, talk, dark stranger will ask to meet you.” Go figure........

But, I do believe that the time of year a person is born has some bearing on personality. My colleague in Tokyo really believed so too; or at least he learnt all about star signs to pick up women and date them. During lunch conversations he often discussed the secretive and dominating side of Scorpio. He knew that it was safe to lend some very risqué books; other women might have started a lawsuit for sexual harassment. Amusingly, I joined him at one particular lunch meeting, he informed about Scorpio sexuality. Apparently Capricorns and Scorpios are most likely to become escorts. Capricorns decide to become escorts for the money and Scorpios for the sex. I nearly choked on my Sashimi.

Here are a few things about Scorpio personality, after reading this you can be as much of an expert as my colleague.

‘Scorpio is the symbol of sex and Scorpios are passionate lovers, the most sensually energetic of all the signs. Scorpios are the most intense, profound, powerful characters in the zodiac. Even when they appear self-controlled and calm there is a seething intensity of emotional energy under the placid exterior. They are like the volcano not far under the surface of a calm sea; it may burst into eruption at any moment. But those of us who are particularly perceptive will be aware of the harnessed aggression, the immense forcefulness, magnetic intensity, and often strangely hypnotic personality under the tranquil, but watchful composure of Scorpio. In conventional social gatherings they are pleasant to be with, thoughtful in conversation, dignified, and reserved, yet affable and courteous; they sometimes possess penetrating eyes which make their shyer companions feel naked and defenceless before them.

Their tenacity and willpower are immense, their depth of character and passionate conviction overwhelming, yet they are deeply sensitive and easily moved by their emotions. Their sensitivity, together with a propensity for extreme likes and dislikes make them easily hurt, quick to detect insult or injury to themselves (often when none is intended) and easily aroused to ferocious anger.

Whisper something romantic that would melt another girl out of her senses and the Scorpio girl will simply give you an intense, penetrating look that will see right straight through to your real intentions. She’s a human X-ray machine, so don’t flirt.’ If you’re sensitive, don’t ask his opinion or advice. You’ll get the naked, brutal truth. You asked them, they’ll tell you. Scorpio will not pay a false compliment to gain a point or win an ally. It’s beneath him to flatter. When they say something nice to you, treasure it. You can be sure it’s sincere and unvarnished.

You can be sure that heaven certainly has no fury like that of a Scorpio woman who’s lost her normal steady control over those inward, seething, Pluto emotions. She can be overbearing and domineering, sarcastic and frigid- then turn as hot as an oven at 500 degrees Fahrenheit.

Because she’s drawn to investigation of the shadows, she may at first seem to be tempting, forbidden fruit, and the deep, strange expression in her eyes intensifies the impression. It’s true that the Scorpio girl sometimes wanders into dangerous waters in her efforts to penetrate life, and since there’s not the slightest trace of fear in her, her search may indeed take her into some weird byways. But the typical Scorpio will emerge from any discovery still strong and pure.

She could be the keeper of quite a few secrets. It’s surprising how many dark deeds are confessed to Scorpios, though their own inner lives are marked: “Private-Keep Out.” She likes to hear secrets, but she’ll seldom tell anything anyone has confided in her, not even to you. You can also expect her to have a stack of secrets that relate to her personally, and don’t try to pry them out of her. There’s a private part to this woman you’ll never touch, a part of her mind and soul that belongs strictly to her. She’s not untruthful, in fact she’s more often too brutally honest, yet there will always be those special thoughts and feelings she won’t confide to you or anyone else.’

So that’s Scorpio women for you, well minus the jealousy aspect, oddly enough. Dare you meet me after all this.........only if you like a challenge.
