Scorpio is the eighth sign of the Zodiac. It is a fixed sign and therefore the characters that it produces are likely to be quietly controlled. Personally, you have many attractive qualities; you are firm and yet cohesive. You are extremely discreet and cautious and must know all that there is to know about some­thing in which you are interested before you will commit yourselves.

You like encouragement and praise where work is con­cerned but it; does not worry you if nobody encourages or praises you.

There are two completely opposite types of Scorpio subjects. Firstly, those who are determined about doing whatever jobs they have on hand competently. These are the discreet ones, and they are nice people just so long as you do not cross them. And secondly, there are those who are inclined to be selfish. They work only for their own benefit and do not care how much they may hurt anyone else on the way as long as they reach their own objectives.

You are helped tremendously by your shrewd judgement of people and things. You have more concealed power in you than can be found in those born under other signs. You can be bad- tempered and are at times a little envious of others. You are also inclined to be more than usually suspicious of other people.

If you were born between October 24th and 31st, you are loyal and capable of being influenced by others around you. You have a natural modesty which quite often keeps you contentedly in the background, and nobody could ever accuse you of being over-talkative, for there are times when one wonders whether one has been able to convey to you what is in one’s mind.

If you were born between November 1st and 10th, you are a friendly and talkative person and therefore you are a little less tactful, being generally much more open in character. You are the nicest of the Scorpio types for you will at times be inclined to put a great deal of confidence in your colleagues. However, sometimes you put too much confidence in someone and get let down as a result.

If you were born between November 11th and 22nd, you are cohesive persons. Ambition knows no bounds for you, especi­ally where your domestic and business affairs are concerned. You will allow nothing to stand in your way and determination is your greatest attribute.

You make an excellent supervisor, policeman or police­woman, government official, dentist, or electrician.

Your constitution is very strong. It is a rare thing for you to have to give in even when you are under great strain. One might liken you to a power-station, for you appear to generate that extra energy just at the moment when it is most needed. If anything, it is rheumatism and the allied ailments that affect you most and then not until late in fife.

Partnerships/Marriage: the best choice of marriage partner for you is a Cancer type or a Pisces type, Teaming up with a Leo is seldom successful;

Should you choose a Cancer subject then you can expect the latter to be very emotional, although Cancer subjects are, by nature, sensitive and timid. If you want to please Cancer subjects, then you must notice them and be attentive to them. They love to be brought forward as they seem incapable of doing this for themselves. They have good brains, and, treated properly, can be extremely generous. They have more notice­able characteristics than any of the other signs and therefore they stick to convention much more closely.

If you choose a Pisces subject, you can expect your partner (as with a Cancer subject) to be very emotional. Pisces subjects are liable to get depressed over the smallest worry, so you should treat them kindly or, better still, try not to give them anything to worry about at all. When they are happy and contented they make excellent companions.
