Whether you believe in astrology or not, you've probably heard all about what your astrological sign reveals about you. From auspicious dating advice to personalized makeup suggestions, the stars seem to have a lot to say about us, and most of it ranges from fun and benign to thought-provoking and introspective.
Most astrology followers opt to pick out the good qualities listed for their sign and pretend that nothing scary, weird, or gross exists in their charts. The bad news is there are creepy zodiac sign traits, and no one is safe - especially you, Scorpio. Each sun sign has its own set of negative qualities and if you are well-versed in all that is the stars, you probably already have an inkling of an idea of what the creepiest thing about you according to your zodiac is. Keep learning about the different zodiac signs with Astrology: Using the Wisdom of the Stars in Your Everyday Life, which uses the key principles of astrology to examine each sign's place in the world.
You're the best - right, Leo? Wherever you go, the spotlight finds you, and you're hardly complaining. You can't imagine your friends care, since, after all, you're so generous. Well, that's what you like to think about yourself. You're generous, enthusiastic, and fun, so if you compulsively steal the spotlight, it doesn't really matter. If you fuel drama just to feed your thirst for a dramatic life, is it really that bad? Is it really so wrong for you to be the center of attention? Does it really matter how other people feel about it in the long run?
Of course, you'd never say no. You're the generous friend, and you'd never hurt anyone on purpose just to keep all eyes on you... right? Every now and then, you imagine your funeral and how all of your friends will go on and on about how wonderful, magnetic, charming, and generous you were(n't).
Caring for people and things does not work the way you think it does. You are so invested in making sure that everything around you is perfect that instead of showing you care, you plan and control without asking for any input (which, of course, you justify by telling yourself that you aren't burdening anyone else with extra work). You show dedication and attention to everything the same way you would a bonsai tree: meticulous maintenance, control, planning, and foresight.
You call this “dedication,” but it's not - it's needing personal control so badly that you've confused it for real connection - which is not really a great quality in a friend, but a very helpful quality in an aspiring serial killer.
Everyone knows how empathetic and fair-minded you are, Libra. You put a lot of effort into keeping it that way, demonstrating time and again you only make a decision after giving equal weight to every contributing factor. This has given you a reputation for being a little flakey, but also for being personable, kind, and just. It's a reputation you prize, because you want to live the life of someone peaceful and fair, and you take great pride in being sure that the decisions you make are the right ones - not just for you, but for those around you.
Being fair-minded, though, isn't a one-way street. You give equal weight to every opinion before deciding, and sometimes, that means taking a walk in the shoes of someone whose morals deeply horrify you. All that kindness, justice, and peace is built on the ability to sympathize with the worst of the worst. You can go on pretending you're unspeakably horrified by hatred and violence, but that won't stop you from knowing exactly what it would take for them to consume you.
Scorpio: You Get Too Excited About The Objectively Terrifying
Scorpio, something is very wrong with the internal compass that points you to the things that interest and motivate you. Your passions aren't like everyone else's - the more intensely upsetting something is, the more you are drawn to and repulsed by it in equal measure. Crime, tragedy, and taboo will grab your attention over anything else, and you'll stay fascinated long after anyone else would have lost the stomach to keep going.
Even you aren't sure what this means about you, but you know better than to talk about it, because you're afraid someone might confirm what you already suspect: no one stares into the abyss as long as you without having a little abyss inside in the first place.
