Gemstone Affinities
Self-reliant, magnetic Scorpio is an intense and enigmatic sign. Powerful emotions flow beneath an outwardly calm surface. Known for its insightfulness, Scorpio is one of the signs where transformation occurs—a quality of its ruler Pluto. Brown Topaz helps to promote positive transformation. It resonates with loyalty and fidelity, Scorpio attributes. Straight-shooting, they tell the unvarnished truth, sometimes incurring anger from the recipient. As such, Scorpio benefits from the protective energy of Apache Tears. Forgiveness and releasing resentment—great qualities for any zodiac sign—are triggered by Smoky Quartz.

Note: Before the discovery of Pluto, the ruling plant for this sign was Mars—the two are more or less interchangeable with regard to the Scorpio personality, especially since the recent downgrade of Pluto from a full-blown planet to a “dwarf planet.”

The Moon of Frost (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
This period is one of intellect and mind. This is the time to explore and develop ideas, but these new ideas can lead to so much excitement that proper timing can often be ignored. The influence is one of impulsiveness.

Water Element
Scorpio is a water element — sympathetic and imaginative. They bring emotional sensitivity and intuition.

The Water signs are the intuitive dreamers of this world. Water shapes intuition and emotional experience, and is linked to the feeling and emotional world. The element of intuitive perception, water signs are inward-looking and sensitive. This is a passive, rhythmic element that ebbs and flows. Water signs need time to withdraw, to process emotional experiences, and then to reemerge into the world.

A Fixed Sign
The Scorpio individual is imaginative, passionate, and emotional. For better or for worse, they are intense, intuitive, and complex people who give life their all.

Zodiac Compatibility
Scorpio in any relationship is fiercely private, deeply-feeling, and intensely loyal, but they’re most compatible with Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.

Famous Scorpios
Julia Roberts (Oct 28), Demi Moore (Nov 11), and Leonardo DiCaprio (Nov 11).
