About this card:
Scorpius (also known as Scorpio) is one of the oldest constellations in the sky. Scorpius was memorialized after killing Orion for his arrogant exclamation that he could kill all of the animals on Earth. The theme of death is not unfamiliar to Scorpius. Scorpio rules the eighth house, which is the house of death, sex and resources. Of course, none of these aspects should be taken lightly and the seriousness of a Scorpio's demeanor will reflect the things they rule over. Though it is a water sign (which would normally indicate an emotional individual) Scorpio's reserved nature makes them prone to repressing their emotions.
Scorpio is fearless, intense and passionate. They are highly competitive, a trait that comes out in both work and play. They are unafraid of taking risks and often find the thrill that comes with fighting things head-on worth a potential negative outcome. In personal matters, they prefer to see the world in black and white. Highly secretive and easily suspicious of others because of their uncanny ability to see the motives of others, they do not waste time in relationships or matters where they feel at risk or if the other party is acting ambiguously. They know what they want and aren't afraid to get it.
