Scorpio's are intense people. They may appear aloof and introspective but underneath that cool exterior a cauldron of emotions boils. Scorpio's just care more about things than most people. They need, above all, something they feel passionate about to focus on. Having a career and/or partner that provides that is very important to them. If they feel they lack this, they can become a little self destructive.

Once their attention is captured, Scorpio's are devoted partners and employees. As long as they feel they're working towards a higher purpose they give their all to people and projects. Because they give so much, they demand a great deal of others.

Scorpio's are also very curious. They're often philosophical, as well, and may be particularly drawn to religion and the occult. Their intuition is strong and they tend to feel they understand the mysteries of life, the universe and the mind more than most.

In relationships, Scorpio's can be a little jealous and possessive. They are also very affectionate and give a great deal in return for loyalty. Exciting and mysterious, a Scorpio can easily be so irresistible that a little jealousy is actually flattering. They tend to want serious, committed relationships and rarely consider one night stands or casual affairs.

Scorpio's are flexible and adapt easily to new situations. Career changes late in life are not uncommon for them. They are goal-oriented and almost always manage to get what they want.
