    The Scorpio child is born to a father who didn't want a child for what ever reason, and this may never be discussed openly in the family, but the emotionally sensitive child picks this up and learns to not trust others. Scorpio always asks "What do they want from me and what is in this for me?" The Scorpio child is not a "team player" and will take her ball and go home if she doesn't like the rules of the game. She is highly sensitive & dislikes loud noises. She can be drawn to the "Dark side" of life. (The fact that Halloween falls during Scorpio is no accident. The Sign deals with death and regeneration.)
    Since Scorpio is so emotional she can certainly have a problem with obesity, but it is her CHOICE and no one else's since she rules her own life. She is a natural born athlete, with determination and perseverance to do anything she wants, so what she weighs is all her own doing. She loves pleasure and food can be a comfort as well as other "vices." But, that is her decision. She can just as well be a winning body-builder if she wants.

    Scorpio gets along with Capricorn, Cancer, Pisces, Virgo and Taurus. In any relationship she is in she MUST be in control, since she is so insecure, since she didn't have the love from the father that she wanted. In her relationship now, SHE will decide when and how much she gets or she will move on to another.
    She makes a good policewoman, detective, undertaker, business woman, beautician/make-up artist, or waitress.
    She is the most loyal of friend/lover as long as she is not betrayed, but if she is done wrong, she will walk out and not look back as you won't fool her twice. Her favorite weapon is silence. She can "erase" a person who has wronged her from her life.

    Like the other water signs, this sign is very sensitive and emotional. With Scorpio, unlike the water signs Cancer and Pisces, the emotions remain under rigid control. They may not even be apparent to those who are very close to you. When your emotions do erupt, they do so very violently, often with a strong burst of sarcasm and vindictiveness.
    The strength of Scorpio is in the methods employed to meet every challenge. You approach everything with intensity and passion. Nothing is ever halfway because you put everything you have in your work; mind, heart, soul. You are one of those people who always gives 100% and sometimes more. Many born under the sign Scorpio become classic workaholics.
    You may have an undesirable trait commonly found in the Scorpio person, holding a grudge for a very long time. The underside of Scorpio is often possessed with uncontrollable jealousies and the strongest passions. When offended the reaction is surely revenge. The higher side of Scorpio still dominates people and situations, but with much for the common good. This sign produces very few lukewarm people. You are either very bad or very good.
    In Scorpio, the Sun is intense, skeptical and secretive. There is an intensity and a secretiveness in your makeup which results in an inscrutable persona most people cannot penetrate. This trait makes the Scorpio personality hard to detect. You like to remain incognito, and do so with your very secretive nature. You are a master at hiding your emotions. You neither flinch nor blush. It's hard for you to share your inner feelings with anyone.
    You can be very critical and demanding, creating a forceful and dominating demeanor. You are strong-willed and determined, and you usually act with incisiveness. Your critical nature allows you to make shrewd and unusually accurate judgments at a rapid rate. You can penetrate the hidden agenda of those you meet. It is in your nature to protect yourself by knowing what your opponents are thinking and doing. You have uncanny intuition and accurate perceptions, making you almost psychic in understanding and making emotional connections with other people. Very few successfully earn your trust. Often, you experience difficulties with the authority figures in your life.
    At home, you may be something of a tyrant, wanting everything done your way. You think you are always right and won't tolerate dissent. There is a tendency for you to impose your will on friends and family since you feel so passionately that your ideas are in their best interest. No one takes relationships more serious than you. Although you are highly attracted to, and attractive to, the opposite sex, in many respects you function well as a 'lone wolf' type. emoticon
