The Scorpio Woman is probably the most self-sufficient, strong-willed, self-confident woman in the Zodiac, except when she is in one of her crises. Usually, her drive for significance is unrelenting, her will to power formidable, and her ability to seize an opportunity and play a hunch astounding.
If self-esteem is born of knowing what she wants and how to get it, she brims with it. For her, the problem is not so much to get what she desires as to choose and use constructive means of doing so. She is confident about her ability to dominate the forces of nature and to surmount obstacles. In truth, domination is a game to her, one she feels she was born to win. Tasks that require confidence and endurance challenge her. Because she is confident, persistent, thorough, and intuitive, she can be a capable engineer, physician, or military leader. She is a good manager. She likes to work, and she is usually good at it. The positive results reinforce her self-confidence, which in turn enables her to tackle new tasks with confidence. The more she does, the more confident she becomes. She short-circuits only when she turns to revenge or any other underhanded expression of unvented fear and anger.
Scorpio's self-confidence is heightened by her psychic powers. She relies on them; though our culture represses psychic gifts, she tends to be clairaudient, telepathic, and perhaps also clairvoyant. She sizes people up quickly and accurately, and she can wait to act as her judgment dictates.
She usually psyches out her opponents. She has a good sense of timing for attacks, too, because her senses process data accurately. She misses little of what goes on, and though she is psychic, she is seldom tuned out to a dreamy never-never land. Usually, she is right in the thick of a situation, feet on the ground, eyes carefully observing, mind questioning and evaluating.
Scorpio is bound to go wrong when she gets too stubborn. Hers, after all, is a fixed sign, and so she is capable of getting stuck in ruts, psychic or material. Especially in early adulthood, she feels insecure enough that she tends to stick to arguments beyond the point of no return. She often digs in her heels to prove she is right, though deep down she may know she is wrong. Sometimes she fights just to vent aggression, and the more wrong she is, the more she may battle to win.
The Scorpio Woman is loyal and chooses her commitments carefully. Normally she selects a small circle of friends who, once hers, are hers for life. She is cautious in allocating her affection, as she expects others to be. She neither likes nor understands flighty people or quick friendships. When she opens up to someone, she expects to have that person around for life. If something goes wrong, she is bound either to withdraw without explanation or to lash out.
Scorpio, I advise you to try to voice your expectations about friendship and loyalty. Interpretations of such things vary widely. If you count, for example, on having a Gemini type for a friend, you may be disappointed. State your hopes and needs clearly and early. Listen carefully to the response, and decide whether you are in the right place to give and get what you need.
