I am not the type of person to take astrology seriously… but that’s just me, a typical Scorpio! I do think they are intriguing though.
When I was a child, my parents used to tell me incessantly that it was obvious I was a Scorpio because I have a sting in my tail. It always stuck with me and made me wonder if there was an element of truth, however small, in astrology.
In an effort to let you get to know me a little better, I thought it would be fun to run through the scorpio traits and see how many of them I relate to. Don’t worry, I am pretty self aware so I will be able to acknowledge my unfavourable points too. Is self awareness a Scorpio trait? Let’s find out…
Strengths: resourceful, brave, passionate, stubborn, a true friend
I would say all of these are true to some extent. I am both passionate and resourceful. I’m quite good at finding a resolution when it seems like there isn’t one. Regarding bravery, with which there is a fine line with stupidity, I have never been one who is scared to rock the boat. If I think you are being a total douchebag, I will tell you I think you’re being a total douchebag. No, I don’t care if you’re my headteacher or my boss. I can be stubborn depending on who it’s with. Certain people can melt my ice queen exterior in a heartbeat but if I don’t like you or don’t care about you, you can bet your arse I am not backing down. And finally, I am a true friend. If you’re my friend, I will love you, protect you, defend you until the day I die unless you cross me… in that case, you can go f*ck yourself.
Weaknesses : distrustful, jealous, secretive, violent
Violent?! What? I am most definitely a lover, not a fighter. The other three though, yeah, I’m totally those. I am quite distrustful of new people in my life and I am secretive. I keep a lot of things to myself and not necessarily because I don’t trust the people closest to me, but because I don’t want to burden them with my worries. Jealous… is an understatement. Just call me the green eyed monster. I can get very possessive, especially over people, but I never, EVER, let it show. Externally, I am cool as a cucumber, which happen to be green. How convenient!
Scorpio likes: truth, facts, being right, long time friends, teasing, a grand passion
I definitely should be in law because I do love the truth, facts and being right… and if I don’t know the truth or facts, I will dig and dig until I find them to prove to you I AM RIGHT. That’s not to say I don’t admit when I am wrong though. It might seem like I never do but that is only because I AM ALWAYS RIGHT. Long time friends, yeah, for sure. I don’t have much time for shallow acquaintances. I want to connect on a deeper level to ensure we have a friendship that spans the ages! I would agree with the teasing but I would broaden this to just being an all round joker because I love to laugh and make other people laugh. As for a grand passion, I do love when people have one, I just haven’t discovered my own yet!
Scorpio dislikes: dishonesty, revealing secrets, passive people.
Seriously, do not lie to me or break my trust. I hate it and it’s something I never forget. If you do that, our bridges will well and truly be burnt. And passive people, grow a backbone guys. I like people with fire in their bellies. People who can lead, make a decision, fight their own corners. It’s nice that you’re laid back and the world needs people like you… but man, do you annoy me!
So, in conclusion, I guest it’s true. I am a typical Scorpio and proud of it too because all of these traits, good and bad, make me who I am.
