The Scorpio man appears to be an enigma, not just to the world at large, but also to himself! The power inherent in this star sign is tricky to fathom, and Scorpions reading this will probably under- stand what I'm talking about better than anyone else.
From birth, Scorpio men have evolved instinctive responses, preferring to rely on their gut rather than worldly logic. They may take a sudden dislike to someone for no apparent reason, and no matter how hard you try, changing their opinion is not easy. Their heightened sensitivity overrides mental reasoning, making it difficult to get close to them.
If you are a Scorpion male, you can be self-absorbed and have an obstinate ideology that you create and abide by. You can be uncompromising in your expectations, both of yourself and others, and you're forever trying to top the impractically high standards you set for yourself.
While you remain an enigma for most, it is this mysteriousness that attracts others to you. Regardless of whether people grasp the real you, they burn with a desire to get up close and personal with you.
Scorpio, you have the ability to shine and succeed, but I'd like you to remember that professional triumph may not guarantee true happiness. Rather, it may leave you dreadfully forlorn and lonely. You're cautious in relationships, and while your younger years were full of friendships, with age you turn into a bit of a cynic.
Sexual expression forms the core of your personality and you have an insatiable yearning for passion, affection and attention. Anyone seeking a romantic engagement with you must come to terms with your complex motivations. For an in-depth explanation of this, refer to the section on Scorpio and romance.
Though you may appear reticent, the intensity and articulateness of your thoughts and ideas often leaves others flummoxed. It is through your style of communication that you reveal your leader- like qualities. You are clearly not fit to be a follower.
You're a phenomenal storyteller, which stems from your intrinsic desire to make an indelible impact on people around you. Your popularity gives your ego a persistent high, and in your pursuit for the limelight you can subconsciously dismiss the opinions and
needs of others. Nonetheless, you remain the undisputed people- charmer, forever enthralling people with the world you create and the words you use to paint it.
Your over-possessiveness towards loved ones can often sour a relationship, especially if your partner doesn't reciprocate with the same intensity. You are unable to share your loved ones and often blur the line between loyalty and control. Endeavour to respect all energy levels, Scorpio. Not everyone is perfect, nor does a lack of passion equal a dearth of love or commitment.
Often you may find yourself torn between the philosophical and sexual aspects of your personality, seeking expression through both. On the one hand you fancy sexual intimacy and demonstrat- iveness, but on the other you yearn for spiritual awareness through meditation, self awareness and sacrifice. Interestingly, even this kind of stress works in your favour as people are attracted to the complexities of your mind.
Scorpio men have supremely agile minds and commit to memory even the most insignificant details, much to other people's surprise. They fiercely guard their self-respect and highly value respect from others. In short, they aspire to be admired and they are.
You like to be excessive in countless ways and display an obvious gluttony, as well as an immoderate craving for sex. Remember, all's well as long as it is under restraint.
Never become the object of a Scorpion's rage. Their temper can be explosive and merciless, and when a Scorpion strikes, it strikes to kill. They detest being proven wrong and react fiercely to confrontation. Though you're a man who cares little about others' perceptions, at times you should mellow out and toe the line, even if you have differences of opinion.
