These fierce water signs use a scorpion as their symbol and are ruled by Pluto, the planet of power and regeneration. Scorpios are renowned for their intensity, their combative tongues and a mystery unmatched by any other sign in the Zodiac.

Tight-lipped, trendsetting, passionate, unwavering and completely unapologetic — a Scorpio's prowess of intrigue is all-consuming and definitely worth celebrating.

Design

Location, location, location. It has an immense influence on a Scorpio’s daily moods, so it needs to be considered when selecting a home. Keep in mind that Scorpio are water signs. Living by the water allows them to become more centered, connected and alleviates them from their stressful or negative thoughts.

Interior design for this powerhouse pack should be executed with an equally careful thought. Scorpios have an innate desire to be in total control of every aspect of their lives, but this is especially true with their physical surroundings.

Scorpios will find happiness in clean, minimalistic designs that allow them complete mastery over their dwellings. Minimal, but far from boring, this fierce flock will treasure decorative accents that are fearless, sultry and even a bit taboo. Inky abstract paintings, nude sculptures and matte animal skulls will offer a high-impact effect that mirrors our Scorpio’s daring personalities.
