Scorpio is the 8th Sign in the Zodiac circle; planet Mars rules them, and it is called Vrishchika Rashi in Vedic astrology. Nakshatras falling under Vrishchik Rashi are 1/3rd of the Vishakha, total Anuradha, and whole Jyestha.

To put it simply, Scorpio individuals are decisive, commanding, intense, passionate, and zealous. In this article, let us look at the Scorpio personality traits below.

Scorpio Characteristics

Driven, dedicated, and loyal, Scorpio Rashi individuals also are ambitious and security-loving. Curious and ready to learn, they are intelligent, motivated people who can contribute amply to any project.

Scorpio Personality Traits


Scorpios are generally strongly built, have thick shoulders, sharp facial features, and a husky voice that can be charismatic. They have a square forehead and jaw, with flat cheekbones. Their upper body is long, and their arms shorter than it. They have penetrating, mesmerizing eyes, a short neck, thin but sensuous lips, and thick hair.


Scorpio is an introverted feminine Sign. Nevertheless, their nature is distinctly dissimilar, and as they age, their nature keeps evolving, touching higher and higher planes. It can be quite a fascinating experience to remain in their company, but at the same time, it can be dangerous as well. They typically appear self-assured enough. Holding their strong yet modest power, they are pretty secretive by nature and prefer a serious appearance.

Judging the real purpose of Scorpio Rashi natives can present a big problem. Some might consider them a passive sign, softly holding their grievances with much patience until they get a chance to pang back. However, the analogy apart; they can take risks and are more thrilled by what is concealed (secret) than obvious. Indeed, they are high enough and not afraid to face significant problems or challenges.


People born under the Scorpio zodiac sign are the most passionate lover among all the Rasis. They radiate sexuality and take closeness very seriously. They look for an intelligent and honest partner. Love-making for these begins much before they hit the sack, right from the tiny conversation they make over dinner in a restaurant to the drive back home.

Nonetheless, once Scorpians are in love, they are highly committed and loyal until the very end. Though, forming relationships can be a tedious task for them. They need to build trust and respect for a potential mate gradually and exhaustively.

As a friend, Scorpio natives will be faithful and expect the same from others. When their friends need help, they always will be there. Nonetheless, pride and self-respect are significant to them.


People of Scorpio zodiac sign have good resistance power, so they usually enjoy good health, and they will quickly recover when encountered with a health issue. They are prone to encounter accidents, and this is due to their tendency to take risks. Also, they are susceptible to disorders related to sex organs, throat, intestines, lungs, and prostate gland. They need to take fitting care in these areas.

As Scorpios refrain from expressing their emotions throughout their lives, they are also prone to psychosomatic disorders that may affect their intestines.


Scorpio natives are self-motivated and know what they need, their careers, or anything else. Persistent, passionate, and intensely career-driven, these confident people accept defeat only when the odds are overwhelming, and failure is inevitable.  At work, they are focused on the job at hand.

Individuals born under the Scorpio zodiac are natural detectives, not the ones to take things at their face value easily. As they have a deep desire to ‘find’ answers, fields like medical research, psychology, and journalism, especially investigative journalism, might appeal to them. Often, people trust them with their innermost secrets and most valuable possessions. Therefore, there is a great scope for them to make a brilliant career wherein they must manage others’ businesses.

Scorpios may perform exceedingly well as doctors, engineers, ecologists, navigators, market analysts, pathologists, soldiers, etc.
