Astrologers believe Scorpios are ruled by their desires, but that their strength is resourcefulness, and that their resourcefulness allows them to control their desires unless they have a plan to achieve them. Scorpios are analytical and meditative, and ponder data to create a realistic plan; self-deception is not something a Scorpio does. The Scorpio is secretive and intense, though their careful approach to planning and action can appear as a lack of intensity. The Scorpio is good at hiding their feelings. A creative dreamer with an original personality and a very vivid imagination. They take things personally, and sometimes your unique personality, is not very well received, which makes them feel excluded and misunderstood. Scorpio have this uncontrollable need to please others. Kind. Passionate.
