When is a Scorpio Born?

Scorpios are born between October 23 and November 21. Some might argue that the darker months suit the Scorpio’s temperament, often described as vengeful and pessimistic. However, this is because Scorpios are realistic, know what they want (and don’t want), and will not tolerate any nonsense.

The Personality of a Scorpio

Scorpios are known for being self-centered, but it’s more about having self-control and a clear stance on their preferences. Towards close relations, Scorpios are dedicated, generous, and loyal.

Scorpios enjoy challenges, particularly physical ones, and they typically strive to be the best at any challenge. A Scorpio also enjoys their own company and dislikes being disturbed during their alone time.

Everyone should be friends with a Scorpio. They are extremely loyal to their closest ones and always voice their honest opinion, even if it’s not well-received. Moreover, Scorpios maintain self-control in any situation and never let emotions carry them away. This makes them detached and objective in problem-solving.

Scorpio in Careers and Education

When a Scorpio sets their mind to something, they are dedicated. This applies to education and careers, where a Scorpio will give their all in their pursuit of the goal. This makes Scorpios excellent at problem-solving.

Scorpios believe in themselves and manage to maintain composure and self-control, even in extremely stressful situations. Scorpios make great police officers, surgeons, researchers, and psychologists.

Who is a Good Match for Scorpio?

Scorpios have self-confidence and firm opinions, which many find attractive. However, they need a calm and loving base where they can play the dominant role. This is best found with Cancer or Pisces.

Scorpio and Cancer: Cancer needs a guiding partner in the relationship, a role that Scorpio will enjoy. In return, Scorpio gets all the devotion and loyalty they need.

Scorpio and Pisces: Pisces creates a calm and secure base, while Scorpio makes joint decisions for the indecisive Pisces. They complement each other very well.

In principle, a Scorpio can live in harmony with most signs, as long as they are allowed to be the dominant partner in the relationship.
