PERSONALITY AND CHARACTER
Ruled by Pluto, Scorpios come across as completely cool with their surroundings. The truth is, that poised performance is often just that -a bit of an act. See, as a Scorp you’re actually a secretive soul. You’re slow to reveal who you really are to others. And just when people are pretty sure they’ve got you figured out, you completely transform yourself. This can be a creative force in your life or one that’s kind of destructive. Some people will see your love of change as exciting but others may think you’re just trying to win them over and will see you as superficial. Rather than reinventing yourself at such a rapid rate, consider allowing some people you trust to get to know the real you.

WHAT YOU NEED TO SUCCEED
Superresourceful, you continue to excel long after others have given up. You need to be allowed to fight your own battles. You have strong willpower and when you set your mind to achieving a particular task, you often are able to pull it off with ease. You’re very capable and thrive under pressure. When most of your friends are ready to give up, you’re the one who wants to give it one more chance. But you also have an impatient nature, so you need to remember not to sweat the small stuff. Save your energy for the things that matter most.
When you’re in doubt about how a member of your family is feeling, it’s best to ask. You have a tendency to be a bit too impulsive and have been known to assume the worst about others’ completely innocent behavior. To control this far-from-trustworthy tendency, ask others to explain their actions and their feelings. Strive to keep a lid on emotional outbursts.
STUDY STYLES THAT SUIT YOUR SIGN
In a classroom setting you’ve got to be challenged. You hate when teachers hover over you while you work on assignments in class. You need your space and are quick to react to criticism. While you can get your homework done in just about any environment (yes, even with that CD player blaring at Warp 9), you really only feel you’re succeeding when some one serves up some praise about your academic achievements.
WHAT MAKES YOU A SOCIAL STAR
You are not one who can be described as wishy-washy. First impressions matter to you and your gut reaction upon meeting someone new tends to be amazingly accurate. You’ve even been known to freak out your friends with some of your right-on-the-money readings of people. Others find you exciting and fascinating, so it’s a sure bet you have many admirers – just try not to scare them all away by coming on too strong.
YOUR HEALTHY ASTRO ATTITUDE
To stay in shape, set specific goals and consider working out every day. You have tons of energy and thrive on adrenaline rushes, but it’s best to burn off some of that excess energy with regular daily workouts. Tap into your sign’s sense of determination by forcing yourself to get more psyched about fitness. Load up on lots of fresh, natural foods and focus on figuring out which sports are the ones you’re most likely to stick with. Once you find an activity that’s right for you, your body will get in gear.
Ever considered a career in the public arena? Think about it. Though you work well on your own, you should look for a job that allows you to share your knowledge with others. You’ll want to be an expert in your field, whatever it is you choose. Your love of mystery makes detective work, military intelligence, politics, or medicine great options. Also, a job that has an element of unearthing clues or discovering things, such as being an archaeologist or a pathologist, fits you to a T.
ASTRO ADVICE ALWAYS
Get to know more about one of your friends – she may be going through a tough time at home.
Take on a challenging task.
Prepare for some unexpected cash to come your way.
Let an older relative know that he or she is loved.
WINNING MOVES FOR THE MONTHS AHEAD
You’ll be in the mood to sit down with one of your best friends and make some major plans about how to spend your next vacation. You are going to gain new confidence in yourself and will try something you never thought you’d be up for. Keep all areas of your life balanced and stable. Lots of sudden changes could prove to be chaotic.
