My sign is Scorpio:
"People born with the sun in Scorpio are very determined, reserved,
tenacious and secretive. They are firm and somewhat proud, and capable
of unmistakable traits of character that cause them to be either very
much liked or very much disliked. Their somewhat suspicious nature
causes them to be distrustful, but amidst all their apparent evil traits
of character, they have that grit and backbone which enables them to
make higher attainments than those born in the other signs ; For the
"wisdom of the Serpent" lies concealed in this sign, and they become so
discreet, wise and prudent as to display extraordinary genius. It has
been said "the greater the animal the greater the man," and it may be
that in the animal passions there lie the germs of the spiritual force,
which, when sent upwards, may achieve great and mighty things. That
which seemed latent will and desire in the sign Taurus
becomes, in this sign, expressed energy. The Scorpio desires are potent
and charged with the power to attain the object of their desires; but
when their desires are subservient to the will, there are none more
powerful or determined. In conclusion, it may be said that the Scorpio
individuals that have reached the point that they decide their own
I think there are many aspects of this that are true.
I have been told that I am determined and tenacious. I set my mind to things and do everything in my power to make it happen. I tackle obstacles and make it happen. I stick my heels in the ground and do not give up until I have what I want. Is this always a good thing? Hell no. Has it been the cost of a few important relationships in my life? Absolutely. Would I change any part of it? Hell no.
I am reserved - I have been told time and time again that I do not let people inside to the private part of me. It is more than just what I write here, to my inner-most thoughts that really just scare the hell out of me. It is about the way I protect certain parts of my life from others because I do not want them to be in it until I am ready for it. It is about the stupid metaphorical walls I am told I put up on certain subjects to which some have never come down and I am not sure they ever will. I have always heard about these walls and I get tired of hearing about how they will always be there, well that's the way I am.
As my tag line on my blog - "Take me as I am, who I was meant to be. And if you give a damn, then take me baby or leave me."
