Our delineation of the Scorpio horoscope follows a very logical method, based on ancient basic and archetypal principles. It's NOT about stereotypes.
Every zodiac sign is the result of the so-called Quadruplicities or Modes (Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable signs) and Triplicities (related to the four elements: Fire, Air, Water and Earth).
The Scorpio horoscope is based on the Fixed Water energies:
The Fixed principle is about stability, holding tight and clinging. It implies concentrated, stabilizing and controlling energy.
Fixed is unchanging, undisturbed and settled. Fixed represents the "getters", "havers" and "preservers."
The Water principle is about emotion and compassion. Water runs deep and is highly sensitive, working in a subtle, non-physical way. It is quiet, receptive (introvert) and collecting. Water is imaginative and hiding, retiring (invisible).
Blending fixed water into something tangible or material, you get the keyword "ice."
The main characteristics of the Sun (representing your self-expressing life force) in the fixed water sign Scorpio are:
reserved but forceful and penetrating (persistent and firm)
cumbersome, turns everything upside-down or reverses things
secrets and the hidden things attract
holds onto old pains and emotional issues
wants to merge instead of bonding
has many secrets to hide!!
Depending on your birth date, the Scorpio horoscope divides into the following three decanates:
