Scorpios are arguably the most intense members of the zodiac. Even when they appear self-controlled and calm there is a seething intensity of emotional energy under the placid exterior. Sometimes Scorpios are accused of holding grudges, which is not really true. It’s just that Scorpios rarely forget anything, and are ready to defend themselves if they have been hurt. While they have a legendary sting when provoked, they are also refreshingly honest and unpretentious.
One of the most intelligent members of the zodiac, Scorpios have a deep well of strength that, if tapped into, can produce a powerful ally, or a vindictive enemy. A huge abundance of energy usually makes this person a powerful achiever and go-getter; the Scorpio is never lazy. Though their worst fault is jealousy, they also have the power within to turn this around and DO something about it.
As the Scorpion and its next neighbor on the wheel, the archer Sagittarius, both deliver their most accurate sting while retreating, the energy of this time now favors the protection of the harvest and other efforts that are now nearing completion. Scorpio is a reminder that the third and final harvest is upon us — Samhain is only one week away.
