Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac and comes in the middle of the autumn. Scorpios are generally very energetic people who are more driven than most other signs of the zodiac. A content personality that can accomplish a lot if their energy is directed to tasks they are passionate about. They are good judges of character, and intensify all feelings. It is impossible for them to only half do a task, and there is no middle ground. With them it is often either/or, love or hate.
They can devote themselves totally to their nearest and dearest and fight for what they believe in.
They possess an inner strength which means that they can bounce back from very difficult situations, rising from the ashes like a phoenix. When they are passionate about something, they can perform great feats. Many Scorpios possess healing powers in one form or another. Scorpios like to research and study something until they know everything about the subject.
In giving so much of themselves to something they are doing, they find it difficult to let go. This, therefore, can lead to fanaticism, jealousy and possessiveness if they have to pull themselves away from something they have given a lot to. All this volcanic energy needs an outlet and can end in restlessness and rootlessness. Some Scorpios drive themselves so hard that they become burnt out. Bitterness can ensue if they do not forgive something in the past.
