Don't pretend you don't know exactly what you did to provoke my silence.
R10 is spot on.
You thought you'd get sympathy from me??
You all can go to hell.
R10, that's perfect. I used to work with a Scorpio office manager who would periodically get pissed off at people and freeze them out. She would bitch about them behind their backs, but not to their faces. One time, I asked her, "Why don't you just tell her what she did?" Her response was, "Oh, she knows!"
I'm a Capricorn and for some reason Scorpio's are comfortable with and trust me and don't give me too much trouble but having said that I prefer to steer clear. Virgo's on the other hand are evil and should be launched to their own solar system. Cancer's can join them.
Geminis are evil, backstabbing, two-faced cunts....
r16 that would fit my description of Cancer
I have an idea: tell me your innermost vulnerabilities and wounds while I smirk and coo, then I'll discuss you like a lab experiment over facebook as you attempt to rebuild your life. I will refuse to acknowledge you are the only person in my life who isn't controlled by dependencies based on money (live-in boytoys) or power (my underlings at work) or genetics (family). I will act proper and prim when I finally get my ass handed to me. Wouldn't life be easier if you just let me grind you into the ground?
This is so much fun. My best friend is a Scorpio, he would cry laughing if he read this stuff. I'm a Gemini so of course he's horrified of how light I travel through life. He had some anxieties about retiring so I said oh gosh you could start some new hobbies, join some clubs etc. He just stared at me and said with great contempt "Scorpios don't join clubs".
I'm a Scorpio and, at least for me, you've hit the nail on the head with your replies.
R10 is dead on. My ex father in law was one, & he would stop talking to his son for months, yet no one knew why. Im sure in his warped mind, everyone knew why.
It's inconceivable how many people believe in astrology and all that bullshit.
Wow OP, what Scorpio stung your ass and how?
Anyone ever have a Pisces for a boss? What was that like? I am a cancer and all though I am convinced it is the worst zodiac sign, I have never experienced being called backstabbing and evil and don't believe that is the general reputation. The sign is known for having severe mommy issues (I don't but maybe that is denial) and just wanting to be at home and eat home cooked food.
Cancers are, in general, enlightened beings and must suffer the attacks of signs less evolved. It's a tough life.
LOL! Actually, r23, cancer.
R10, R12, R13, do you know me?
I'm the hottest fuck you'll ever have and as much as you hate me, you'll keep coming back for more.
My last boss was a Scorpio. Super phony and passive aggressive.
My brother is a Scorpio. Super phony and passive aggressive.
You could call me many things, but phony is not one of them.
My emotions show on my face. I cannot be a hypocrite or pretend something about someone or about anything, really.
Wow, I'm shocked this hasn't degenerated into a soap thread. I'm impressed.
I'm gonna slide my cock up into your muscular azz and make your eyes roll back in ecstasy, bitch.
I didn't marry her for her money. I married her for her father's money, and I don't see how you can call that "mercenary." I was doing her a huge favor!
Lorelei Lee ?
I like to amass a mental database of all of your life problems so that instead of firing you, I will intimidate you into quitting. I will make just enough friends in the office (and give them promotions when they've served their purpose) to be able to log on to instagram, facebook, and twitter at any given moment and find a psuedo justifiable reason to send you to hr for improperly using sick time. If I don't get dirt on you that way, I will pick a random Friday afternoon at 4:45 to tell you 'we need to have a meeting' the following Monday; you will spend your whole weekend wracked with anxiety only to show up on Monday to hear that you aren't in trouble but your body language expresses negativity and disrespect and you should be aware of it'. I will do this enough times and in so many artful ways you will eventually quit.
So what you're saying is that your Scorpio boss is both smarter and more powerful than you are. Sounds about right.
You must be really stupid to allow your co-workers to be able to see your Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. You're especially stupid if you posted while inappropriately using sick time. What kind of moron does that?
Please let me know what your sign is so that I know which is the stupdiest.
Ooh, just what I always wanted: a thread full of Leos and Sagittariuses airing their grievances.
I also love r37's boss.
I'm the creepy stare.
I'm not afraid to indulge my sadist tendencies with you. You can't resist my magnetism and will do what I want. And if you don't? (shrug) Trust me, you will, one way or another.
R38 Not even close buddy. I have Mars in Scorpio, in the 11th no less so I know how to fight like one and suss out a passive aggressive Scorpio bitch's tactics when need be. No social media for me! But I also don't think it's cool to call someone up to hr after they've used FMLA to be with a dying parent under the guise of 'someone has brought it to my attention (read = boss herself) that you may have been using our FMLA inappropriately based on your instagram'. I thank my stars for the world's best employment lawyer each and every day.
When you cross me, I will never forget it. I just bide my time while planning my revenge (best served cold).
I am suspicious of everybody. Trust no one. And if you think I'm going to let you into my deep reserve, you're going to have to prove to me that you're worthy. And then i will still hold back.
Sure R43, we believe you. We believe you.
I like to think I have everybody's number - a little piece of damning evidence to use against everybody - while I drink myself under a table.
R39, hey why are u picking on Leo's and Saggies?
Scorpios are the kindest, most awesome and talented signs of the zodiac. We are a sea of calm in the storm for others. Our talents are often hidden and although we may crave recognition, we modestly keep above the fray of chasing glittering prizes and accolades.
And are NEVER jealous of others or covet what they may have. Never never!
AnnE, huge Scorpio stellium
r12 has been most accurate, by the way.
OMG R44, I'm a Scorpio and you just described me perfectly. Eeek.
One trait frequently associated with Scorpio is the tendency to quietly observe others and learn all about them, while sharing very little in return.
The only Scorpion I know who is anything like that is, uh, me. Most of the others are complete chatterboxes. We could say they know a good listener when they see one.
Anyway, the best tip I've heard for getting along with Scorpions goes:
[quote]About all you can do is give us everything we want and hope for the best.
I'm the piercing look of "you're totally fucked now, mister!" when you glibly point out my perceived weakness in front of others.
And I WILL cut you, bitch!
What r29 said.
My likes and dislikes are fervent and endless, but YOURS make you so judgmental!
If you accidentally cross any of my lines, I won't tell you, I'll just shut down, and you can figure out where you went wrong on your own!
Sometimes it's nothing you did wrong. Don't get me wrong, most of the time it is. But sometimes we just don't want to talk to you (or anyone).
R10 nailed it.
But remember, we would do anything for the ones we really love. There's no need to be afraid, but yes, you should be careful.
I've never met a Scorpio who didn't lead a double life, and I doubt I ever will.
R31 I am there, right now. But only until the end of January.
I'm surprised a didn't have to start this thread and make every post. However, no one can handle a Scorpio like I can.
See how much more interesting Scorpios are than other signs??
Aries: I'm awesome, i'm smarter than you, I'm the best fuck in the world...where did everyone go?
Taurus: My pile of stuff makes me feel safe, no I will not quit smoking to save my life and you can't make me.
Cancer: I just want to take care of you because you are my emotional investment and you know you're not very strong.
Gemini: I want a cat, no a cat and 3 dogs and chickens, no wait that guy is smart I think I love him no wait that guy is funny I think he is the one, god he's a bore. Someone anyone take these fucking dogs cats and chickens off my hands.
How many Capricorns does it take to change a light bulb?
One. Because I'm the only one around here that ever does anything. You want to help? Please don't you'll only make it worse for me when I have to fix your mistakes and do it all over again.
"Isn't this a great photo of me? I am beautiful." - Aries
Leo: see me feel me touch me attend to me, you are so lucky.
Virgo: um I took your clock apart and put it back together, it's perfect now, you have a hair on your nose.
Libra: hello beautiful, my most lovely of sugar coated unicorns with a golden chandelier hanging from your adorable horn.
Sag: I have 1500 bucks left on this credit card, I'm going to Machu Picchu
Capricorn: I fired 3 people who worked under me today, you work with Warren Buffet? You seem fascinating let's go to dinner.
Aquarius: I mean really who cares.
Pisces: Tie me up, pee on me it's all goooooood
Well crap are we sticking with astrology?
Robert and Anna will be back this Friday.
You'll be sorry when I'm gone. Believe me, you will.
Slept w/ a Virgo once. Had to take several baths while we were having sex as I was on my menstrual cycle.
Then, he planned every act of our love making like it some kinky scenario porno in advance.
R61- an ex is a Capricorn- perfect description.
Hey, I happen to like Capricorn men. A lot. Damned hot. And more often than not, gorgeous bone structure and skin. Fuck, I miss my Cappy.
Now let's get back to pissing off the Scorps.
I am in control. You will do as I say. You will be my slave and thank me for the privilege. I will mind fuck you to a tizzy and you will never know what hit you. I will berate you, belittle you and humiliate you. And you will keep coming back for more--especially if you are a Capricorn or a Pisces. You cannot escape me. I will own your body and your soul.
You know R70 that is so true about a Capricorn, they long to give up that burdensome control and let someone else be in control for once and it terrifies them.
I have to admit that I'm a master at mind control. I've fucked with so many people's heads--but they keep coming back and forgiving me.
Yes, I admit that I have mental issues.
Oh please. We just humor the Scorpio. Capricorns are the true puppet masters.
R31, got it right. People think Scorpios are so tough and maybe they are in some respects but they're also incredibly passive aggressive. They're similar to Libras in that way. At least a Gemini or Aries will tell you what's up right to your face. I don't care what reasons people have for doing it, but passive aggression is really just a form of cowardice.
Are there any perfectly nice Scorpios? Ones with moons in other signs?
R72, be that Phoenix rising from the ashes and transform yourself.
R75, I've had a couple of Scorpio bosses and coworkers and they were actually pleasant if not a bit stubborn and nosy. But the pleasantries could just be a big front.
R63 is soooo accurate.
I don't know why you guys don't smack the shit out of more people with these stories.
Cunt @ R60! Geminis are not what you're saying they are ...but whatever I have better things to do!
I'm a whore, darling. A natural born whore. My sexual prowess is legendary.
R80, dipshit. R60 here and I'm a Gemini so suck it little coward.
That's right R81! You A.R.E a whore.
I'm a perfectly nice Scorpio. We exist.
Unless you dis Katy Perry, then look out.
There are loyal strong Scorpios for certain. My ex is a Scorpio, my favorite person in the world. My two favorite coworkers are Scorpios but a person would have to be really foolish to ever mess with them.
This thread is pretty mean-spirited. Is that what Scorpios are like?
Someone do a thread on Aries
R86 They sometimes have more than a hint of cruelty but usually they can't be bothered.
I wouldn't say it's mean spirited, more like an awe fest for Scorpios.
Are you certain you want that R87?
R87, you already did. Can't stand for anyone to be getting attention besides YOU. Sometimes it's not about YOU and what YOU want. So hush. We're trashing Scorps.
Scorps aren't mean-spirited. They're just very strong willed, possessive, secretive, mistrusting and tight-lipped. Nothing wrong with that.
And r60's description of a Gemini was right on and LOL funny. R80 needs to get a sense of humor.
Cappies like you to believe they run everything but they're just fucking ambitious as hell. To piss THEM off, just be more successful, know more rich people and act like none of it matters. Drives them fucking NUTS!
R87 No one cares enough about Aries to bother. That's why R74 is so upset. No one thinks about or cares about Aries. They're pretty much non-entities.
No need to pretend. Scorp here and yes, if I'm awake I'm hard.
[quote]They sometimes have more than a hint of cruelty but usually they can't be bothered.
True. You all think we're constantly thinking about you and something offensive that you did, but the truth is closer to us simply not caring about you at all.
So true R90, Capricorn's ambition could never match Scorpios intrinsic understanding of emotions and emotional motivations and understanding that is real power. Scorpios do not flinch when faced with the knowledge of the lowest of human behaviors.
I could not imagine beating an old person for their purse or wallet, I mean if you are going to take something that isn't yours make it a fair fight, pick on someone your own size. I asked a Scorpio friend "how, why do these thugs beat up old people?". He responded without hesitation "because it's easy". While he would never do such a thing he instinctually understands the motivation.
Scorpio here. The comment about "double lives" is SPOT ON. Aside from my two closest friends, no one has ANY idea of much of the nefarious shit I've done in my life, and even those two don't know the full extent of it. I'm an enigma and I know it, and I don't mind in the least that this fact apparently intimidates many of my acquaintances.
I have myriad, unending plans to get exactly what I want, and I know precisely how to manipulate people into doing what I want along the way. You will rarely see me visibly angry, but if you piss me off I WILL make sure you pay the price -- even if it takes years. (With the one ex-bf who dared to jilt me by cheating on me, I waited a full eight years before "anonymously" sending some highly incriminating info on him to his boss. Last I heard, he was facing an indictment on conspiracy charges.)
R10 is correct as well. I've gone as long as a year without speaking to a particular someone, and much of the time they have no idea what they did to piss me off so spectacularly -- nor do I care. If they can't figure it out, tough shit. In a few cases, I've shut people out of my life entirely (as in never speaking to them again or acknowledging their presence, period), though generally with good reason. The first time I recall doing that was in fifth grade. (That time wasn't for good reason.)
I have to say that I like Aries very much and I tend to be very impressed with them. If you're walking down that dark alley and the bad guys come along you want a Scorpio with you because they will never give up, never stop fighting, a Cancer because they are naturally protective of others and self and that motivation can make them terrifying (think Mike Tyson) and an Aries because they will fight like a motherfuck just for the pure challenge and sport of it all. If you don't want to make the mistake of going down that alley in the first place consult a Gemini, Cancer or Capricorn
Aries are a pain in the ass because they are so egotistical and arrogant but they are really good at anything they put their mind to. They love to be challenged, danger makes them more confidant and they have the capacity for joy like a child. But they are not a team player and love is just another conquest. The one thing I most admire about them is their abhorrence of self pity.
Does your anger consume you, R95?
Thank you for the kind words about Aries, R96. A lot of people don't like us, so it's good to hear. We're almost as unpopular as Scorpios! You describe my husband very well. I'm also an Aries but I am a wimpier variety (perpetually conflicted due to Libra moon). I also have Scorpio rising so I tend to hold a grudge and I have little patience for bullshit and small talk. My husband is an Aries with moon in Taurus and he's just full speed ahead with everything. Very determined. He's going through some tough times right now (health issues) and he's just barreling through it, no wallowing in self pity.
R96, I work with an Aries and he does something wildly charming every week. Last week one of the guys was on the phone and said "I'm sorry" three times to someone from the cable company. Finally Aries yells out "stop fucking apologizing". I had to leave to leave the room, I have a problem with suppressing laughter. Aries was not being a bully he just knows you don't owe the cable guy 3 apologies and nothing good will come from it. He's a passionate guy and most of the time I find him enchanting, when I'm not helping the villagers light the torches.
If you ever hire a housekeeper try to get a Capricorn LOL
R82 Please! You wish you were a sunny Gemini like me, but I can see through your cunty ways Scorpio.
As many other Scorpios have said R10 nailed the essence of Scorpio's thought processes, which tend to be fueled by strong feelings although we are also very analytical and perceptive. I've had a strong pattern in my life of just not talking to someone or having anything more to do with them.
Basically we don't need people if they give us shit and disrespect. We feel we are above this and don't need the big group of fake friends that might be fine for a Capricorn, Pisces or Gemini. Only those loyal and good to us are worthy of our time, loyalty and social efforts. Really, we have serious, powerful goals, many of which most people won't be able to even guess half of, so we cannot suffer fools in our lives.
The weird thing is that throughout my life, I've always gotten away with this silent treatment thing. I was driven by a strong, lasting emotion of "they know what they did and deserve this" yet was always fawned all over by everyone just the same. This happened even with family. I refused to ever enter my step-brother's house again because of the way his wife and their 5 year old son had treated me and fumed to everyone else in the family about it including his mother, my step-mother, and his wife's mother too. I never told them what the wife and kid had done/said during my visit and yet, it was the wife who got countless lectures from her mother to "be nice."
(What had happened was that the little kid had told me it was weird to have me there and his mother was right behind him trying not to smirk. I thought it was so blatantly obvious it came from her and she's such a cunt bitch, but yeah, I got even all right. She's still considered as a cold, rude bitch in our family!)
One last Aries story and then I promise I'm done. My Aries coworker likes to get me in trouble in meetings by making me laugh...yes we're juvenile. Anyway one of the guys was making excuses for failing to finish something and he said "you don't understand how hard this thing is, sometimes I can barely handle it". Well I let out a snort of laughter but I was hopeful of regaining control as long as I didn't look at Aries. So I'm sitting there percolating with laughter and I get an email on my smartphone with a pic of a giant rock hard cock. My Aries friend smiled the smile of an evil ten year old and I was a goner. My boss looked at me and said "do you need to leave?" And I said yes thank you and hurried out. He's the debbil and I love him for that.
Aries make good friends or fuck buddies because they are sexy, great in bed, and basically great at everything, but they are hard to be in relationships with because they know they are good at everything. They are mean and selfish and impatient with other people, and just not very nice in general.
Aries guys, lots of us would love to be your boyfriend, praise your achievements, appreciate everything you do for us, and take your loads daily if only you were a little nicer and more thoughtful of others. Please learn to compromise if you want to be with a great guy who adores you.
Scorpios will do anything. Very giving individuals. Until you piss them off then watch out!!
R6, my Scorpio ex-partner of 20 years asked me, everyday, "What would you do without me?"
He is the most typical Scorpio on the planet... so secretive it's disgusting; holds a grudge for a lifetime over what most people would get over in a New York minute; vengeful/hateful... yet, I can't get over him. I hate myself!
r62, Your information is 100% accurate.
I don't find Aries especially good in bed. Too fast, too conventional. I know they THINK they're hot, but...
I know a few Scorpio/Aries lesbian pairings. I guess they're a good (female) combo.
Yeah way too fast and almost no sensuality. A guy with a Cancer/Taurus combination is better, more earthiness.
Aries and Scorpio pairings do not last.
Yeah r110 lots of sex. As long as the Scorpio doesn't fence the Aries in and the Aries doesn't make the Scorpio too jealous.
As I am a November only child, you can well imagine that I do not have to imagine.
Let's just say that the correct attitude is that of Elizabeth's Cleopatra to Burton's Antony:
Cleopatra: You will kneel.
Antony: I will what?
Cleopatra: On your knees.
Antony: [indignant] You dare ask the Proconsul of Rome-
Cleopatra: I asked it of Julius Caesar. I demand it of you!
[quote]Yeah [R110] lots of sex.
We're talking lesbians in long term relationships here.
I agree, R109, but then I'm a water combo too -- Scorpio Sun/Pisces rising.
To me, Aries are also either high or low energy -- not consistently passionate although they do have their charms.
For those of you with an advanced knowledge of astrology, I'm a Libra, but have the planet Venus in Scorpio, where that sign reigns over my sex (love) life.
BTW, R60 your Taurus and Gemini descriptions are completely spot on. I actually know a brother and sister who are both exactly like you describe. She's the Taurus who is all about her possessions and sitting on a high horse in attitude in many ways, while he's an easygoing guy but scatterbrained in the sense of not being able to focus.
If life is a race:
*Aries is first, but ends up in the wrong place so it doesn't count.
*Taurus wins for material goods and social standing, but loses for manipulation and judgmental jealousy."
*Gemini takes so many detours that everyone is confused."
*Cancer isn't sure about the whole race thing and his place in it, so may only participate on his own terms.
*Leo will need only the best racing gear and can win it all, but doesn't see the point as he knows every flaw of the whole racing theory. He'll just walk around, enjoy himself and look pretty.
*Virgo has everything mapped out way ahead of time and has also analyzed the other racers. After all that he finds himself too weak, nervous or thin to even want to race anymore.
*Libra really can't make up his mind how to race or what he wants or needs out of the race. Maybe he'll just draw the racers and sell the pictures to get by.
*Scorpio has set up secret strategies ahead of time. Scorpio will win but is misunderstood by others as having had cheated or tampered with the results. In reality, Scorpio is tricky, sneaky and secretive, but also principled and persevering in ways that keep karma, and truth, always on his side.
*Sagittarius is having so much fun that he doesn't care about the finish line or how the race will end.
*Capricorn is the hare to the Aries tortoise and has the best chance of winning with others just thinking he is the best thing ever for all that slow but sure hard work.
*Pisces channels his inner Tinkerbell and dances or races on wings and fascinates everyone with his style and personality.
*Aquarius is detached from the race because he knows there's a better way.
very nice, r119!
Oops -- meant Capricorn is the tortoise to the Aries hare. And thanks, R120.
I worked with a Capricorn and she was a complete cunt. One of the worst most controlling people I have ever met.
I love Scorpios though... I'm a Cancer. I love Pisces but they're a handful. So much drama.
aren't they all, r122?...
Yes R122, Capricorns can be super-controlling, yet a lot of them are also quite fair minded. I've had several Capricorn bosses and they were decent, but too micro-managing which is pure TORTURE.
exactly, r125. Smothering.
Fun thread! These Scorpio descriptors are spot on! As challenging as they are, some can be rather vulnerable (not that they'd likely show you), and their barks are worse than their bites. Don't get me wrong: those types of Scorpios will enjoy the hell out of both the barking [bold]and[/bold] the biting; yet, they may actually feel badly about it afterwards. For a moment.
They're so guarded because they don't want you to fuck them over (before they do it to you). They can be total bastards (on the outside), yet they feel wounds [bold]deeply[/bold] (if you take them there, I'd consider the Witness Protection Program, because they can be ruthless).
On the flip side, you'd be fortunate to have anyone as loyal, giving, and protective in your corner. But that must be earned, regardless of who you are.
Well said, r127, especially the last part.
Jesus, you folks are scarily dead on accurate. I always thought astrology was bullshit mumbo jumbo. I might have to start studying it.
That was great R130, I love the way she pronounces the signs. Serpico, Capricia.
They've considered having people killed. Not as a fantasy but weighing pros and cons. Not that they'd do it. Of course.
R104 that guy sounds like a hoot! So fucking juvenile but hilarious.
R105, some Aries grow up and realize they're being twits. Usually if they have a water sign ascendant or moon. A lot don't and it's too bad.
We just want to make sure that you do it right. Right is all we're asking. We limit the quest for perfection only to ourselves. Why can't you understand that?
I don't think I ever read a bigger load of nonsense in one sitting.
R98, I'm an Aries and I also have a Libra moon AND Libra rising. Drives me nuts. I've got to say, I'm a bit jealous of your Scorpio rising. At least that's a mitigating factor in the constant back and forth between Aries and Libra.
Will you old boring goats and asshole rams kindly give it a rest? This thread ain't about you.
My motto is "Do no harm," but I'll make an exception for you.
R136, the Aries/Libra sun and moon is a tough one, no doubt. I must say, though, that one of my most charming friends - everybody loves him - is an Aries with Libra moon. No idea what his rising sign is.
The willfulness of Aries vs. the people-pleasing of Libra is a challenge. The Scorpio rising is not all it's cracked up to be. There is a tendency with Scorpio to take a scorched earth approach to perceived enemies). "I will destroy you!" Being an Aries/Libra, I tend to lose interest or feel guilty before implementing my evil plans, but I hate that I have those vengeful impulses.
Also, if you have sun and ascendant in Libra, the moon is also likely in or conjunct your first house (personality) which tends to make you very sensitive.
I will destroy you thread de-railers.
Every. Last. One.
R139, Yep, you're right. I've got my moon in Libra conjunct my ascendant and it's in the first house. So on top of Libra's bullshitting ways, I've got to deal with the sensitive Cancerian stuff, too.
I sort of know what you mean about hating your vengeful impulses. I've got Pluto in Scorpio in House 1, although on the very edge of the house. It seems like both my Aries and Libra sides are uncomfortable with all that hatred so Pluto gets buried mostly.
I wanted to ask: do you feel that it's better to lean on the Aries side more so than Libra? I've personally switched between being super Arian in my younger years to being super Libran for the last 7 years or so, and I felt much more alive and just better about myself in general when I was being an asshole. Sure, Libras get along much better but I find my Libran side equally as self-centered as the Aries part; I just hide it behind friendliness. Do you tend to side with a certain energy as well?
R116 is dead on:
[quote]To me, Aries are also either high or low energy -- not consistently passionate although they do have their charms.
That is me to a "T." But I learned this about myself early on, so I adjust my life to fit my energy/passion levels as much as I can. It still is beyond difficult to explain to other people, especially if they met me during one of my high-energy/passion periods.
Scorpios fascinate me intellectually and sexually, but I just cannot understand their need for revenge and plotting and grudge-holding. Life is just too damn short for unnecessary drama. But life can be looonnnnggg when your revenge scenario goes sideways. So what's the point?
Someone fucks me over more than I can bear, I cut them out of my life. Done and done. But I always hope they find the happiness they couldn't find in me.
R141, you probably are more naturally suited to the Libra side, with a Libra sun and ascendant. Plus, with a Libra ascendant, I bet your Aries sun is in the 7th house - the Libra house. Nevertheless, the sun is very strong in Aries, so your Aries nature will shine through but you are doubtless more diplomatic than the average Aries. You will probably find, as I have, that at different times in your life, you will feel one opposing influence more than another.
I have a Cancerian influence in my chart as well (which kind of sucks). I have lots of water signs in my chart, so when it comes to the Aries vs. Libra influence, I go with the flow. I probably present more as an Aries. I have had trouble with relationships with some Libras because they tend to get their feelings hurt and you don't even know what you did. Cancers, ditto. Scorpios, their feelings aren't hurt but they're mad as hell and plotting your murder.
I am no longer speaking to you thread de-railers.
Done and done. Now I will plot my revenge.
My scorpio is sweet loyal and gentle. He is quiet natured and getting him to talk is like pulling teeth.
So, is that typical?
Yes R145 being quiet is typical for Scorpios, but for more talkative ones, that is usually when they are 'observing.' (I didn't say plotting ...) But only worry about the not talking if he is normally talkative because otherwise he may be pissed at you and think you know damn well why.
But, yes, Scorps have a lot of good qualities too -- loyalty being one of them. If you treat a Scorp well, they usually give back even more to you, but if you cross them, that's when you need to watch out.
"Let's pretend we're a Scorpio?"
Hah! I was pretending to be a Scorpio's mother and a Scorpio's ex wife. It has worked pretty well until now, I must say.
My Scorpio is absolutely wonderful to hug and lay in bed w/him. Very addicting.
My Scorpio is normally quiet. So no he is not mad at me... But based on the warnings of the various DL astrology threads, I quiz him every couple of days and ask if he has any issue w/me- just in case.
I have asked if he has plotted any revenge scenarios and he has promised me "no"...
He was recently dumped and it took a long time, over a year, for him to accept the rejection. He was dumped by a Libra, who thought he was too quiet.
Hmm, I'm enjoying this thread.
I generally love Scorps and get on with them well and I always thought that a Scorpio BF would be my best match but I rarely meet them. I'm a Virgo sun with Scorpio moon and Scorpio rising. I certainly have some Virgo aspects, but I feel some strong Scorpionic pulls as well-- kinky, plotting, fiercely loyal, a tenacious fighter, etc.
I had a Scorp lover who was damn-near mystical in the bedroom. It was like n out-of-body experience being with him. His lips left not an inch of my body untouched - my feet, my legs, my ass, the small of my back,the crook in my arm. His tongue lapped every inch of my flesh up. I felt like I was being sacrificed to some kind of pagan God every time I ended up in his bedroom.
Then one day he moved halfway across the world and we weren't able to continue the physical relationship, but he has remained in touch on an almost compulsive basis. He never says anything, but his cultivation of and respect for a lifelong bond between us is the personification of loyalty.
R150- yes my Scorpio is like that as well. In the bedroom, so smooth and feels like a trans formative experience.
What do you mean, he "never says anything?" - did you mean that he never explicitly states what your relationship meant to him?
Can Scorpios get chart readings here? I don't think I'm sneaky enough and I'd like to know why.
Scorpio leaving -going to Y&R for big story with Jill.
[quote]feels like a trans formative experience.
Here is the crux of it, gentlemen (and ladies). Good old Plutonic power at it's best. Totally transforming your idea of sex and intimacy. Ooo, yeah, babies!
Just had a Scorp last night after a wave of Gemini's and Sags. Wow. Yeah. Very nice. Intense. Can't wait to see him again. I'm tired of the superficial and goofy sex. I want that depth and intensity.
Yes, r152, post your year and time and someone will look at your chart. If not me, then one of the other practitioners of the art.
(You may not consider YOURSELF "sneaky" enough but that could be to your rising sign, Mars or moon. )
If you should see a Scorpio,
Then, goodness gracious, say hello!
For if his presence you ignore
He'll soon declare a private war;
However, if you're over-nice,
You'll pay an even bigger price;
For once he says your friend he'll be,
You'll never need an enemy!
R154 or anyone else who has time, I'm not a Scorpio but would appreciate having my chart read: 8/2/83 11:45 am Kansas City.
Saturn in Scorp has been squaring my sun and now about to oppose my moon so life has been crappy for a while. Wondering if the cardinal cross on my angles will make life better or worse.
Thanks in advance. :)
Okay, R152 here. November 09, 1968. Philadelphia. I'm not sure of the exact time, but I think it was about 6:00 pm. Thanks.
Demands respect ... does not command respect.
Uses underhanded, power-dominance means to obtain desires -- rather than exuding love to obtain desires.
Gets upset when people are NOT intimidated by him/her. Pretends s/he is NOT an attention hound.
Envious of others and acts out/undermines in harmful ways.
Blackmail is the key to climbing the corporate ladder.
Well done, R37, R44 and R46.

If you're looking for someone to point out the underlying tension in the room, I'm your guy. I've got Mars in Scorpio and Scorpio Rising. Lots of times I'll just say any old damn thing that pops into my head.
I will love you like nobody else until one of us does that one unspoken yet acknowledged bad thing that drives us apart, forever.
But maybe you will stay friends forever too. After all, there's an integrity to the expression of anger sometimes, even if it's only acknowledged in retrospect.
Every Scorpio carries a book of matches and a gas can to burn bridges. But he always finds new people. They just flow into his life. Scorpios are lucky that way.
I will take an Aries over a Scorpio any day.
Aries are crazy brave and yes they use challenges as confidence builder.
Scorpio's? As a friend fine. As a Lover - get out of town. The rages come on spectacularly and without warning. They can also easily live a double life, manipulative as hell. If there is a breakup, they will gut you like a pig, blame you for every single slight and render you a persona non grata.
By the way, I am an Astronomer, and I don't even BELIEVE in Astrology. But I do believe in Scorpios.
Thank you, R161. BTW, It doesn't matter if you believe in Astrology or not. It is still true and predates the numeric system.
Worst nightmare for scorpio is losing control of a situation, of a person, of themselves.
R158 the problem with 'stinging'/Machiavellian Scorpios is that they operate like spiders, scaring you from the shadows. All of their energy is carefully spent spooking you from behind the curtains that they never learn to fight in the open. All defense no offense. Shine a light on the passive aggressive bastards and they crumble! All of these Scorps barking about loyalty are hilarious - you want true loyalty? Try a Capricorn. They literally break their kneecaps climbing to the highest heights and are more than happy to help out those on the lower peaks provided they're in for the climb. Scorpios just like power play.
Well my Scorpio has not raised his voice nor has he plotted revenge!

This is absolutely true, that's why I don't have a Facebook page.
Also, I would love to own a sniper rifle.
Me too, R166. This is freaky. I've moved around a lot too, starting fresh. I make friends very easily but keep them at arms length. I know much more about them then they will ever know about me.
Even as a child I can vividly remember wishing certain kids would move away, change schools or just disappear because I didn't like them. I wasn't being bullied, I just didn't want to be around people who had slighted me or that I was jealous of.
R161, I don't even like Scorpios as friends. Too exhausting. If you don't worship at their altar, you end up on their shitlist. R164, great post. Scorpios are the only sign that is proud of how fucked up they are. "Oooh, I'm a Scorpio, be afraid! Be very, very afraid!" It comes down to a bunch of game-playing (they set the rules and you have to guess what they are) and who has time for that? I'm an Aries with Scorpio rising so I understand Scorpios a little bit and I do have that Scorpio tendency to cut people off when I get fed up with them. Many of the people I've cut off have been Scorpios, in fact.
R168, that is the one thing I dislike about scorpio - being proud of the fucked up traits they possess. I've had a few scorpio friends that would brag about revenge and how hateful they could be.
But not all Scorpios are bad. I am quite in lust w/one now and he seems so harmless. Really.
I asked him point blank and he has never plotted revenge. He is very mild mannered. Does not have a temper. Accommodates others.
Am I blinded by my lust?
R170, Scorpio is very sexy and alluring while he/she is interested or in lust/love with you. If those feelings subside then be careful to end things amicably or at least let scorpio think the breakup is his/her decision.
Trust, R170 he is just as messed up as the rest of us. He's just playing with you, making you think that he's normal. Once he has you then he will bring out the claws.
R169, that means the potential of a teaching moment is that much stronger when you rise up and shut their fuckery down for good.
What's a Taurus like?
I will keep up my guard. I just don't see any claws yet. But- I could imagine some sort of passive aggressive side....
I don't foresee that I will ever want to end it him. Sexiest man ever.
With the purpose of enlightening myself and also others who seem to want to 'get' why we Scorpios are always so hellbent on revenge, since I'm anonymous here, I'm going to share the latest piece of revenge I just got for myself 5 minutes ago.
I stay with my 80 year old father on many weekends to help him around his townhouse and also visit with him. There is a fake Christian bitch of a neighbor woman who lives two doors away. Both my dad and I stopped taking her and her husband's offers of help because it always seemed to come with strings attached whereas they began telling my dad what to do -- ie with his car and home which is none of their goddamn business of course. They are neighbors. So this past summer my dad had told them that his son (me) would take care of the yard etc. from now on and hey thanks so much for all you've done. We both waved and smiled whenever we saw this couple - usually out walking their little terrier -- who is cute and I liked him.
Anyway, they didn't take this well about me taking over my own dad's yard and I know (Scorpio = Serpico) that they bitched about me -- lies -- to many of the other neighbors here and I was passively-aggressively given shit by neighbors -- who I also know happen to be friends with the overcontrolling out of line couple. The worst is that the bitch woman told the others I was cruel to my dad's dog -- an old small dog. I was not! I love animals -- like I said, even that couple's terrier.
It really hurt me and made me so full of anger I haven't been able to forget it these 3 1/2 or so months later. The only reason I didn't confront her is I didn't want to upset my dad, who has heart and stress-related issues. So, I didn't plot revenge, but when the opportunity came up just now, I took it.
What happened is that the bitch neighbor from hell just phoned my dad to tell him her terrier died because they had to put him down since he was full of cancer. I felt bad for them, yes and I liked that little dog a lot (we Scorps tend to be very compassionate and caring too ya know.) But then, the hurt from what she had done to me came back and sort of flooded me over with mainly the emotion of anger and yeah, wanting that revenge. I was standing right by my dad while he was on the phone because we had just finished dinner and I was taking away his plate. I swear I could not stop it and said loudly so she would here "Oh poor Nikki! Joyce killed Nikki?! Joyce Killed Nikki!?"
Yeah, okay I'm an asshole only no I don't feel like one. It made me feel evened up and yes, more powerful. Is that what we're about? I felt bullied before being accused and rumors spread of something I didn't do and now I feel vindicated. Am I a sinner or a saint? Scorpio and I don't know. But I'd do it again. I hope she feels as hurt as I did.
And FYI, I didn't upset my dad as he thought I just wasn't understanding the whole sitution and he just told me after that, no, they *had* to put Nikki down because of the cancer.
r176, you have done nothing wrong except be good to your Dad. The neighbors were - are Freeloaders / leeches looking to get in your Dad's good graces. Thankfully he has a great son.
You need not talk to these nasty people, but I would just say, hello to the others around your neighborhood so they see you are nice and also normal person.
Sorry about their dog. This is an example of Karma. You do not have to attack those that attack you when it is undeserved. Other principals at work in this world.
God Bless you and your Dad.
Six paragraphs, and that's it?!!!
[quote]I make friends very easily but keep them at arms length. I know much more about them then they will ever know about me.
Yes r167. This is quite true.
Wow R178 you don't know how much your post has helped me just now. Thanks so much -- and also for the advice. Yes, I'm nice to the others.
Sorry to disappoint R179. If it wasn't for not wanting to upset my dad in any way I would have called her every dirty name in the book and told her just what I thought she is: a fake Christian bullying cunt of a coward and that she didn't deserve to have as nice of a dog as Nikki which is why she was taken away from her. But I'm glad now I didn't get to say that ...
I am so glad you got to read my post and know that I am accurate. Focus on your Dad and just do not talk about those people unless he brings them up. Then just give an innocuous answer. Do not feel guilty. I am sure you have 1,000 other (and better) things to talk about with him.
Why don't you like me? I'm sexy and great in bed. Love me. Love Me. Please, love me--I have no self-worth. How dare you even recognize the presence of another woman? Are you fucking her???
Libra-Scorpio cusp (21st October) here with a moon in Scorpio (and Taurus Ascendant). Odd combo or what!
R179- yes, have you known a Scorpio? That story is typical...
Well I am in love w/one and lol!- he will recall some story from YEARS earlier- in complete detail- and then mention some trivial and perceived insult or grieveance ...and hold onto the grieveance for years...
He will also repeatedly mention minor slights others have made against him. And I am like: just let it go! It was years ago!
But I overlook that typical Scorpio fault - cause well the sex is good.
Saggie in love w.Scorpio
I do not have to pretend, OP.
Scorpios sting themselves more than others...joke: When you ask someone 'What sign are you?' and they respond 'Guess!' They're a Scorpio.
r187, Linda Goodman had that info in her book. It is true.
I think Scorpios expect others to police their actions submissively.
Scorpio is the most interesting sign to others besides their own natal sign.
Scorpio is the sign of porn stars, prostitutes, pimps, rentboys, escorts...
r191, Guess what they are so good at. You see what I am getting at.
r189: so Scorpios want their companions to police themselves w/o guidance from the Scorpio? And if the companion screws up then the Scorpio is pissed?
Scorpios have to understand that we are not mind readers!
The Company We Keep:
Picasso. Monet. Magritte. Vermeer. Rodin. Dostoevsky. Voltaire. Keats. Edwin Hubble. Bill Gates. Hillary Clinton. Visconti. Scorsese. Louis Malle. Mike Nichols. Ang Lee. Sally Field. Sam Shepard. Jodie Foster. Tilda Swinton. Leo DiCaprio. Joni Mitchell.
R194 made me recall some random thing i observed. Does anyone notice that more Scorpios (along with Aquarius, Gemini and maybe Sags) seem involved in age gap relationships than other signs?
those Geminis are usually trapped in an abuse relationship.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson is the posterchild. :(
R90, I'm a Capricorn with Aries moon and you're right. Except it doesn't piss me off, it makes me incredibly insecure, and I'm always trying to figure out how I can move up in the world.
R194, I love "Elderscorp". Nicely done.
I love Elderscorp too.
I'm also R10, and I gather from this thread that I know whereof I scorp. Thanks for the love. My sting is becalmed.
I'm not into elderscorp. But, it'll stay and be used over and over and over....and over....forever.
This thread is interesting. One thing I can say for sure about myself that seems to be a classic scorpio trait is---I want to know everything there is to know about other people, but I do not want to be "known."
Another Scorpiofrau here. I concur, r202. Secrets are for us!
My stinger is worn out today -- and not at myself. What is it about Walmart clerks with an attitude like they're working at Armani or something? And at some gift shop a woman called me "creepy" when I put on my aviator sunglasses before leaving the store to go out into the blinding winter sun. I can't help it I have that intense Scorpio glare, then put on the dark glasses and lean in and glare. Damn right I'm "creepy." Watch out bitches! Just learn to shut up and be nice. I'm so cool and friendly until others give me this "I'm better than you even though I'm a store clerk" vibe. (I have nothing against any working people!)
Give him time to digest how you feel, R209. Quite often, Scorps have many irons in the fire, and usually some that even those close to them may not even be aware of yet. I'm not partnered right now, but especially in these last pressure-filled weeks before holiday vacation I'm feeling especially annoyed by people's demands on my time. Also, most Scorps are highly independent creatures and we may resent it at least a tad when others can't seem to keep themselves occupied. Your guy probably does love you back because it's big in your favor that he apologized. Scorpios just do not apologize lightly!!!!
