Zodiac Sign: Scorpio
Discover what it means to have the sun sign Scorpio
Intense, mysterious and irresistible, you're the zodiac's official sex symbol. Whether you vamp it up or downplay your looks, you're undeniably magnetic. Resourceful to the nth degree, you know how to make something from virtually nothing. Some of the most inventive minds belong to Scorpios, including Microsoft guru and philanthropist Bill Gates. You're a master of money — both earning it and saving it. While some might even label you "cheap," you know how to squirrel away funds for down payments on homes, yoga retreats in Thailand, designer bags and other pricey purchases. Trust doesn't come easily for you, Scorpio. You may put friends through a series of intense loyalty tests before you actually open up, and shudder to think that they might betray you. Exacting revenge (you'd call it justice) is not beyond your realm of capabilities. Unfortunately, you're the one who suffers most from such grudges, as they tend to consume your thoughts. Learning to let go and move on from conflicts is a crucial lesson. In affairs of the heart, you're decidedly security-minded. Though your high libido makes you capable of having purely physical experiences, you prefer to fall madly in love with a soul mate. Clingy types need not apply. You need a powerhouse partner who can hold his own but also allow you to take an active role in his day-to-day life.
