Scorpio is a fixed, water sign, so changing the mind and heart of a Scorpio is almost impossible to imagine.
Scorpio seldom forgets a mistake, so to make a mistake with this fixed-sign person is in itself a mistake. Just don’t make a Scorpio angry.
This sign also has a strong sense of loyalty to anyone who has become a friend. After all, to become a trusted friend of this fixed sign you first are put through a series of tests to see if you can be trusted. Once you pass, you become a friend for life.
Scorpio is intense, secretive and, because it is a water sign, they are emotional. Although they hide it well, Scorpios are deeply dedicated to those they love.
They seldom make changes since they don’t like change. This means life with Scorpio often is left status quo until it gets really bad.

On early Monday, Oct. 21, we are entering several weeks of mental challenge as Mercury goes retrograde until the afternoon of Nov. 10. So, if you are scheduled to travel, sign a contract or sell a house during that three-week period, it would be wise to anticipate a few delays or missed connections. There’s nothing to cause super problems, just enough to add to the tension of the times. So if you can sign, promise or travel before the 21st, it would be wise.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) The saying, “the early bird catches the worm” was certainly meant for anyone born this month. You are in line for a new life obsession. So get ready to make some serious moves in a new direction or Uranus, in Aries now, will force you to move on. You need some inspiration and it should appear at your door shortly.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Look at what you have been wishing for recently and get ready because it is about to arrive. If you blink, you are likely to miss this opportunity. So the good advice would be to stay wide awake and don’t take no for an answer. You are about to hit the jackpot. A new face will start the ball rolling.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) A big swing in your life will bring you into a new direction both at home and work. Decide how you will handle any long-range life change and get ready for some good times. They are on the way. Also remember you get back what you give out. Be careful with your giving now because it is coming back to you.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) With Jupiter in Cancer now you are in line for success. Make sure what you think you want today is what you really want for your future. Also, be aware that some of the hidden games you have been playing are about to come to light. Be mighty careful with what you are doing. Your deeds are coming home to roost.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) It has been challenging for some time, but, if you just stay calm and do your job both at home and work, you will come out the winner. There is no way your good works won’t bring the reward you are looking for now. A new BFF is on the horizon of your life. So keep your heart open and willing. New excitement is just around the corner.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Your hard work is beginning to pay off both in the romance lane of your life and at work. You are in line for the best. A long time problem could melt away and leave you much wiser and richer that you ever imagined. So keep on looking for love and applause.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Nov. 20) Keeping in touch with your old pals in a sign of the richness you bring into your very own life. No more getting into situations you can’t get out of, no more upside down friendships. You are turning your life around; be smart and don’t look back. A new venture is headed your way.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) It is time to sit down and understand your part in your success. It happens to be the hard work you are willing and able to do. So keep it up; know there are a few new adventures headed your way. Avoid denying yourself the time and energy to step outside of your usual box.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) You are becoming the person you have always wanted to be and some folks are not happy with the results. But the truth is that you are the one to satisfy and then as a result everyone will be satisfied. A new test of your self-control will hit within a week and you should pass with flying colors.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Just because some pals do not agree with your latest venture does not mean you are not moving in the right direction. The main question is: Are you comfortable with your project? If yes, then keep going. A new friend could help you with your ultimate goal of control. So listen and, if you like it, get in line.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) Do some more work on your attitude since not everyone has responded to it. Making up with longtime pals and letting go of resentments is one way of reaching the goals you have in mind. Also it is time to end some of the hidden nonsense you sometimes find yourself involved in. As you move on with your life, leaving some people behind is a must.
Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) The secrets that are no longer valid to you should be discarded and forgotten. Sometimes we must realize that old ways are not necessary and are holding us from the good in our future. You are playing with fire when you hang with an old flame. But maybe you like it.
