Final Thoughts

Scorpios are not nearly as much of an ‘open book’ as some of the other zodiac signs and it takes time and patience to really get to know a Scorpio on a deeper level, Tells Prolific Business Astrologer Hirav Shah.

You can bet there’s something juicy going on, under the wraps, though, because Scorpios like extremes, challenges, danger and darkness. They are, because of their planetary ruler Pluto, drawn to the outliers of human experience. If it’s kinky, risky or thrilling, a Scorpio will have to be involved somehow…Concludes Hirav Shah.
