October 24-November 22

Gemstone: Opal

Ruling Planet: Pluto

The chief characteristic of a Sun sign Scorpio is a remarkable reserve of energy. It is often said that this is the "worst" of the Sun signs but, of course, this isn’t true. The sign’s energies are so strong they can seem overpowering, even inhibiting; the Scorpio can feel driven by them. But if these energies are fully and positively expressed, both physically and emotionally, the individual will be a big achiever. However, if the energy flow is inhibited or uncontrolled, it can be disastrous with typical resentfulness, jealousy, and broodiness. Parkers’ Astrology
