For the Week Of 1

You're all over the place this week when it comes to love and romance! If you're in a relationship, then Monday's conjunction between the Sun and Uranus will bring on a sudden development between you and your mate. Your love might do something completely out of character, leaving you scratching your head and wondering if he or she still wants a commitment. If you're single and dating, be careful who you attach yourself to this week. It's not a good idea to engage in a sexual encounter for the first time with anyone. He or she might be hiding something that, if you knew about it, might change your mind.

Characteristics of a Scorpio

Your sign is the Scorpion and you Scorpios can use your "stinger" for self-defense, using your powerful emotional awareness to render your opponent harmless. But there is a sexual component of your stinger also, and until you learn to control those strong urges, you may find yourself in very uncomfortable situations. Your element is water which symbolizes emotion. The water of Scorpio is fixed and frozen, but it is a mistake to think that ice doesn't flow. It does flow -- and with great power. Think of a glacier, moving so very slowly, yet with enough power to flatten a forest or carve a valley out of a mountain. The key planet of a Scorpio is Pluto who is the Lord of the Underworld in Greek mythology. As the key planet for Scorpio, Pluto is both powerful and intense and represents things we don't or can't understand. It is from these hidden Plutonic spaces that magical transformations do arise. Your birthstone is the topaz and your colors are deep ruby reds. The heather and gardenia are the Scorpio's flowers. The Eighth House represents transformation and is about what other people have. This includes sexual issues, for they usually involve another person. Your greatest strength is your passion about your feelings and your greatest weakness is your need for secrecy can be isolating.

Scorpios are often incredibly intelligent and wise yet they also have an intensity that can sometimes be overwhelming. Their sense of power and passion can often lead them astray, making them unsure of what direction to go for personal well being. These signs are mysterious, never really letting anyone know everything about them. However, their emotions run deep and they are extremely passionate. This makes them wonderful lovers but beware not to cross one. When angered, these signs can take their intensity to a new level. However, when in love, they can fulfill a partner and be incredibly loyal and devoted. Life is never boring with a Scorpio.

The Scorpio will find a great match with Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Cancer and Pisces. That’s right; Scorpios will get along with most of the signs. Earth, air and water signs are especially conducive to positive relationships. Aries, Sagittarius and Leo being fire signs will generally not mix well together. The possible exception to this is the Aries who likes a very strong match. If the Scorpio and Aries can come to some compromises and meet in the middle on a few things that can be a very powerful love match regardless of the inherent incompatibility.
