Scorpio 101

Learn the basics of the sign of Scorpio



Scorpio is a deep sign of passion, power and transformation. It's not content with living on the surface of life, but will go to the depths, which may come across as intense. The zodiac detective, Scorpio is known for getting to the bottom of things and bringing what is taboo to light. It's excellent at strategising and can tap into the hidden undercurrents in others. Magnetic, erotic and powerful Scorpio is able to transform and reinvent like a phoenix rising from the ashes—this also relates to the transformational/tantric aspect of sex and sexuality.
