Scorpio is passionate
Scorpio is the Fixed Water sign. As a member of the Water element family, Scorpio has more than a passing acquaintance with passion, deep emotions, the feelings from which sweeping changes are born.
What makes it so formidable ... and so dangerous ... is the stern containment of this power -- the characteristics of its Fixed sign qualities. The management of emotion is not a job for the weak of will ... or the weak of stomach.
Scorpio is intimately involved in release, transition, life and death. No room in this grim work for the squeamish. And yet strong emotion is the great initiator of massive change.
Scorpio is mysterious
Scorpio, as a Water child, deals in exactly this kind of coin, repressed, secretive, undisclosed, mysterious emotions -- which can release things as awesome as the contents of Pandora's box when the lid is lifted, the scab broken, the infection lanced.
