Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac and symbolized by the scorpion. This is one of the most powerful and intense signs. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and the element is water. Scorpios are complex people, deep and mysterious and difficult to figure out.

Astropsychology of Scorpio

A new car? I want one! A flat screen television? Yes please! A smaller and more powerful computer? The ultimate gadget in cell phones? A home gym? More electrical appliances? Yes please! Consumerism has made Scorpio like this. Many things were bought and then exchanged. Even in the Stock Exchange Scorpio does not know half measures. When self destructive Scorpio invests, he wants to see everything and becomes a victim of the “cyber trader syndrome”.

A very risky bet which for some is a success. By giving in to greed for making money, Scorpio stumbles and falls. It takes months to put together a tidy sum and less than a moment to lose it all on the Stock Exchange. One click on the mouse and all their savings end up on the riskiest share on the list.

But what is it that makes Scorpio so excessive? A taste for danger? The urge to do things the other way around? Dominated by Pluto, those born from the 23rd of October to the 21st of November, are not afraid of the symbology as Pluto was the God of the underworld.

When reading the financial news, their soul gets excited by the idea of crafty rumors, balance sheet forgery and insider trading. The fear of not succeeding prevents them from making any decision. A few months ago they were ready to throw themselves without a safety net into the riskiest investments, while now they realize that courage is inhibited by the need for security. Day after day, they have lost intensity, passion and decision-making power. It is simply important to understand if this is courage or recklessness and superficiality.
