Born between October 23 and November 21, Scorpio is the only astrological sign which does not have one association of symbols, but has four: the scorpion, the eagle, the snake, and the Phoenix. The astrological symbol for the Scorpio sign is an M with an arrow tip showing the end slash upwards. The scorpion and its stinger are generally represented as being ready to strike against danger or as a phallic illustration, since Scorpio rules sexual organs. Due to their strength and harsh tendency, the Scorpios are often misunderstood. However, Scorpios are intensely emotional and long for intimacy. They are compelling, demanding and their fascination for mystery makes them one of the most intriguing signs. Scorpios are incredibly deep, emotional, and passionate in everything they do.
The strengths and weaknesses of Scorpio

5. Ambitious – They are fierce, and set high goals that they can achieve single-handedly. Anything is possible with them and they don’t set limits for themselves.
The weaknesses
Scorpios, like their symbol the Scorpion, appear to wait and gather information and trust before attacking. Scorpios must be mindful of their harsh characteristics as well as the people that relate with them.
1. Jealous – They feel entitled to get what they want because of their intelligence and determination. To them everything is a competition and they like comparing themselves to others.
2. Secretive – Even though they are honest, they will not be vulnerable especially to strangers. They will not reveal any of their ideas, plans or feelings to give them a winning edge in life. Consequently, it’s difficult to deal with them.
3. Resentful – They can hold grudges for a long time, and take obstacles and betrayals personally. They can resent other people for their weaknesses.
4. Controlling – Scorpios like controlling others and don’t like being controlled. Their viciousness and strength means that they feel they know what is right, and people are always under their control.
5. Stubborn – Stubbornness may be a valuable attribute, since it means the Scorpios take a firm stand and commit to their values. However, they are reluctant to change and compromise. It’s hard to convince them to try out new things.
Advice for Scorpios
People don’t like to be controlled all the time and it’s vital that you learn to set boundaries, for example, be controlling at work but relax the control in relationships. Don’t just stick to your ideals but be open to learn from others. To connect with people easily, don’t be afraid of expressing your emotions. Don’t be too hard on yourself and others, learn to forgive.

To earn their respect, show them that you can stand your ground and say things without holding back. Since they value honesty, that is how you can connect with them. They tend to be critical, so therefore learn to understand them but don’t lose yourself. Support them in their ambition while pursuing your own goals.

I retired from the Defense Dept after over 30years. I serviced in the United States Army and was stationed at Ft Hood and Wildflecken, Germany.I live in Florida enjoying the hot weather and sunshine. I have two Shih tzu dogs Gg and Mason that spend their day trying to make me wish I was still working.A good aspect of retirement is being able to what I wanted to do instead of having to do. The what I wanted to do is write children’s books. I enjoy reading and gardening and many other activities.
