Scorpio horoscope explained

Zodiac pundits often say Scorpio is terrifying. As apparent by the sting in their tail.

Scorpios are intense and quick to lash out – or so the signs say.

As a water sign, they have a lot of feelings but often keep them bottled up until they explode. That’s when those around should be wary of the sting.

They may be a water sign, but have the passion and intensity of a fire sign.

Ruled by Pluto and Mars, Scorpios are born between 23 October and 21 November.

Scorpios harness the confrontational element from the god of war, Mars. Their other ruling planet, Pluto, also imbues them with a sense of calmness. This means they are more likely to plot and scheme rather than go into a pitch battle.

They’re ruled by the genitals, meaning they’re often sensual and sexual, and relish physical intimacy.

They can be intuitive, and are suited to jobs where they can take charge. Often ruthless, but not necessarily with malicious intent. They crave love and trust; however, they often have a ‘different’ way of going about getting it.

Scorpio works best with Cancer, Pisces, and Virgo.
