Scorpio is the 8th astrological sign in the zodiac. It is quite obvious that the Scorpion is the animal that represents this powerful sign. One of the most common similarities between the two is their surviving skills. That willingness to protect themselves and survive! For example, Scorpions have an exoskeleton that acts as armor and helps protect them from other animals or creatures that may try to kill them. Scorpio individuals may not have an exoskeleton like the Scorpion, but they do protect themselves from getting "hurt" by being very cautious to whom they trust and open their hearts to. But once they learn to trust the person, they will open up and become the greatest friend and life-long partner. Warning: Be careful not to break a Scorpio's heart. It takes a lot for these individuals to trust someone. Once the trust is broken, they are not willing to forgive and forget. Their strong and independent nature helps them move on without looking back.

The Scorpion has an average of 7 - 10 eyes. Their eyes are very sensitive and are capable of detecting polarized light at night. The eyes are located on the top and front corners of their head. Scorpio's, on the other hand, don't have as many eyes, but the two eyes that they do have are very deep and paralyzing. It's almost like a sting from a Scorpion, that is how paralyzing their stare can be. They may at times become very suspicious of others, using their eyes to observe and pay very close attention to their surroundings. They are also very intuitive and usually follow their gut feeling about someone or something.

Scorpion's have been around for millions of years and are able to survive the most toughest environments on the planet. They have sticky legs that helps them climb and get away from predators. And of course, who can forget the deadly sting? One sting from their poisonous tail can immediately shock and kill its prey. Believe it or not, these animals have been frozen by researchers and put out in the sun to thaw. Astonishing enough, they survived and walked away like if they never had been frozen. Scorpio's are survivors, just like the Scorpion. They are very hard-working and highly driven. They never let anyone or anything stand in their way. Their motto is similar to the Japanese Proverb, "Fall seven times, stand up eight". They have the ability to overcome enormously challenging obstacles and keep on walking like it never happened.
