The Key Characteristics of People Born Under the Scorpio Sun Sign
A Scorpion is a highly motivated, passionate and intelligent person. Scorpions are known for their intensity and commanding nature. They are loyal and dedicated individuals. They are also very ambitious and are always ready to learn more.
However, a Scorpio is also capable of displaying a negative side to his character. A Scorpio’s weaknesses are often rooted in his strength. While he will never give up easily and is known for a ‘never-say-die’ approach to life in general, it is also believed that a Scorpion does not appreciate being refused or said ‘no’ to. When this happens, the passionate side of a Scorpion misdirects him to show unwarranted aggression. This may lead him on the wrong path.
The Scorpio Man
The Scorpio man is an emotional and sensitive person. He observes everything closely and uses his knowledge to understand the practical way of living life. He is also a loyal person who is generous with everyone. However, being a sensitive individual, he is also likely to get hurt easily. While he is generally honest, he can be possessive, mistrustful and jealous. That can bring out the worst in him. He can also be aggressive when he is hurt.
A Scorpion is not a very talkative person and can appear to be slow as far as decision-making is concerned. But, he can be unconditionally trusted most of the times, as he is a loyal and committed person. He will always speak the truth and hence he is reliable. When a Scorpio man is in love, he gets attached to his partner and his emotions run deep for that person.
The Scorpio Woman
The Scorpio woman has a magnetic personality and an aura of mystery around her. She gives her complete attention to people who are willing to interact deeply with her. She has a possessive streak in her but that does not mean that she is insecure. In fact, she is a highly confident individual. Like the Scorpio man, she is a committed and loyal person. She is neat and tidy, and her home reflects that. As a parent, she is protective, strong and is said to be very close to her children.
A Scorpio woman is hard-working and works quietly towards achieving her goals. This may make her look like a loner sometimes. She does not like being a subordinate and wants the freedom to make her own decisions.
Possible Health Issues for the Scorpio Sun Sign
The Scorpio sun sign rules the reproductive system and the excretory system. This means that the sign represents the life-giving force of nature.

Diseases such as urinary tract infection and other similar infections can bring distress to Scorpios.
A healthy diet is crucial for Scorpions to take care of their health and keep a positive outlook on life. They should not over indulge in alcohol and other unhealthy food items. This can only make them unhappy and unhealthy.
