I do not really hate or like any sign honestly because every one has something to teach us. I have strong water influences in my chart depsite being a taurus, I think Scorpios always find me lol, I have come across numbers of them and they try to build relationships with me. They want me to worship them after a while, and will make amazing displays of their highest potentials to prove they are above me, but their intensity does not really move me :/ Then they will call me the "stubborn " bull lol
I do not crave for attention or care about winning , but trust is just as important to me. Someone needs to do something worthwhile first for me to let them win. Relationships are not about control for me, I rather someone else be the boss, but they have to be dependable enough.
I think they should learn to channel their intensity in the right direction. Forgiving others and asking for forgiveness can be very hard soul lessons for them. Trust is an issue for them.
One of my role models, Ipsita roy chakraverti who wrote "Beloved witch " is a scorpio. When I read her book I felt at peace because she just brought the truth out of the hypcocricies in society. someone needs to do that, there are so many issues in the world today, change is needed. There was no sugar coating there in her book. I like that very much.
As much as I love reading her books, I think her lessons are around forgiving. She cannot handle what is false and she calls herself cynical like that. Though like sylvia browne says in her book I think this also applies "Scorpios can smuggle something if they thought it was needed. Other signs however might be too intimidated to do something like this. Scorpios can lie to you in all truthfulness. They work out their own set of truths and they do not think it is wrong, because it is not wrong to them "
From my friendships with them, they are intelligent, clever and will be emotionally present with you, but they have other lives of their own and that will not be revealed to you.
I think the statement by Sylvia browne perfectly describes the ones I have come across, they will do something that others would feel guilty of doing, but they will come across fine , because to them it was right. And yes they have to be absolutely right and win. Honestly I do not feel they are not always right. If they do not win regardless, they will be very sad and upset.
I actually have a scorpio friend who is indeed extremely tolerant, maybe because now she is older and more experienced and has calmed down. She is more complacent. She is calm, patient , strong and very tolerant, maybe because now she has her own children and has family, she has developed more compassion. I think she has a hard time dealing with deception, all her facebook statuses are around how fake some people are, and she has been doing it for the last two years. I think emotionally they have a hard time integrating the false, untrue things and can come across as difficult because they are just as hard on themselves as they are on others and their own suffering makes them come across as difficult. Just appearing "weak " or "vulnerable " is not in their list, even if they were feeling it, they would look at their own emotions indignantly. I do not find my friend exactly secretive or her secrets as being of any harmful nature. She is really good, and not really like they typcially describe the sign. Another close friend and classmate was a scorpio, I think she was calmer than me , maybe the year of goat calmed her down. I think evolved scorpios are exceptionally soothing to be around.
Scorpio is about death and transformation so they chose some of the most misundertsood areas as soul lessons. And yes it can be too much for peace loving, easy going signs.
An Aries friend once told me about her scorpio friend , that she knew her for many years and not once did her scorpio friend mention about having any children. She said she never knew she had children. I think sometimes they keep secrets, but those secrets are not of vicious nature always. It is their nature to sting, but their own sting can be just as fatal to them. If they control their vicious nature, they rise above their problems and are like very tolerant people you will meet, sometimes like ascetics too.
I always run into them , or they run into me. However they are not my most compatible sign I believe. I rather have my peace, than constant displays of emotions and ups and downs with it. I do not like people who erupt without notice and that can be just anyone not typical of one su sign only :/ Especially if it is of a violent or dark nature, I rather stay away from it. I think violent emotional displays can come from a dark scorpio.
They might want to test if I can stay with them and I find that twisted, honestly I do not want to even if I could. Because that is where it borders on what is not right for me , and I have to be able to discern.
I rather have my peace.
I find some older female scorpios as extremely tolerant and good, and I feel at peace with them.
Otherwise this is not my most favorite sign.
