They can harness their abundant energy constructively, tempering their self-confidence with
shrewdness and their ambition with magnanimity toward others provided they like them. They relate
to fellow workers only as leaders and can be blunt to those they dislike to the point of cruelty. In fact
they are not above expressing vindictiveness in deliberate cruelty. They are too demanding, too
unforgiving of faults in others, perhaps because they are not aware of the shortcomings within
themselves, and extravagantly express their self-disgust in unreasonable resentment against their
fellows. They do, however, make excellent friends, provided that their companions do nothing to
impugn the honor of which Scorpios are very jealous. Part of the negative side of the Scorpio nature
is a tendency to discard friends once they cease to be useful, but the decent native is aware of, and
fights this tendency.
Scorpio is the symbol of sex and Scorpios are passionate lovers, the most sensually energetic of all
the signs. For them, union with the beloved is a sacrament, an "outward and visible sign of an inward
and spiritual grace.". Their overriding urge in loving is to use their power to penetrate beyond
themselves and to lose themselves sexually in their partners in an almost mystical ecstasy, thus
discovering the meaning of that union which is greater than individuality, and is a marriage of the spirit
as well as of flesh. They are thus capable of the greatest heights of passionate transport, but
debauchery and perversion are always dangers, and Scorpios can become sadistic monsters of
sensuality and eroticism. Their feelings are so intense that even when their love is of the highest, and
most idealistic kind, they are nevertheless frequently protagonists in tragic, even violent romances,
Scorpio governs the pelvis and reproductive and urinary systems and its subjects are said to be
prone to ailments of the liver and kidneys, stones and gravel in the bladder or genitals, and other
genital ills such as priapism. Abscesses, boils, carbuncles, fistulas, piles, ruptures and ulcers may also
affect the Scorpions.
