Alas, poor Scorpio, we know you well. Temperamental, unpredictable, intelligent, determined … sounds like a character from Shakespeare. Indeed, the zodiac’s most complicated sign is aptly represented by the prince of tragedy, Hamlet. Not that Scorpio is all doom and gloom, yet they, above all other signs, are the most willing to look at life from inside the shadow. Who else could waffle from blissful enthrallment to despair with as much style and awareness?
Like Hamlet, Scorpio is obsessed with seeking out the truth at all costs, wandering from room to room in the palace of their keen minds to root out deceit. Yet “madness in great ones must not unwatched go….” Scorpio requires trustworthy friendships to keep from tumbling over the brink of paranoia. They live faithfully by the maxim, “To thine own self be true,” and woe to those who get in their way.
