This morning I was cleaning out some of the clutter around my computer desk and I came across a card describing the astrological sign Scorpio. As regular followers of this blog know, I am one of those fearsome Scorpios.

Now I don't follow the daily advice in newspapers for astrological signs but I do put some credence in the characteristics of the Scorpio astrological sign. Why do I do this? Because they are dead on, at least as they apply to me.

Scorpio, the eight house of the Zodiac and the fixed water sign, is the most intense of all the signs. Dominated by powerful emotions, you take life seriously. You posses a magnetic power, critical perception and the ability to judge keenly, but you can also be exacting, obstinate, secretive and jealous. Scorpio has a hierarchy of symbols, starting with the traditional scorpion and ascending to higher levels of consciousness as symbolized by the eagle and, finally the mythical Phoenix. This progression symbolizes the Scorpio's need to regenerate through suffering and, often, self-destructive behavior. But, you also posses an indomitable will and self-control, and your presence has great healing power. You are fascinated by sex and death, and can become quite the monster of lust. Intensely loyal to your friends, you never forget a kindness or a slight. Your day is Tuesday, your metal is steel.

LOVE AND SEX
Often known as the sexiest sign in the Zodiac, Scorpios love and hate with equal fervor. You require a great deal of fidelity to feel certain of the value of a relationship and you can be madly possessive. Often the victim of passion, you sometimes feel burden by your desires. You are most attracted to Cancer, Pisces, Virgo and Capricorn. You have difficulty with Aquarius and Leo.

CAREER & MONEY
Money is power and you know it. Of no importance in itself, money is a means to an end, a challenge to your strength You have the most patience to sacrifice present indulgences for future rewards. You are driven, shrewd and highly focused.

BODY & HEALTH
Scorpio rules the genitals (tell me about it) . Though you generally have a strong and robust body you are particularly susceptible to epidemics, dunkenness, venereal diseases, hernias, syphilis, prostate diseases, colitis, bladder disorders, nose disorders and piles.
