If you know a Scorpio, it's very likely he or she either intimidates you, inspires you or flat out scares you.
Scorpios' determination, passion, sexual energy and motivation allow them to stand out among all the other signs.
With their incredible fervor, you may think they fall along with the fire signs. But, the actual element associated with Scorpios is water.
Those born under the Scorpio sign are also quite emotional.
When it comes to expressing how they feel, there is usually much more going on beneath the surface than they let on.
The emotional waves are continually crashing in their minds.
Complicated, silent, sometimes sexy and always confident, Scorpios tend to know how to get what they want.
Here are a five strengths to borrow from a Scorpio's playbook from October 23 to November 21:
1. Be a control freak.
Scorpios have a knack for not letting anything slip past their mental calendars.
Harness this type of energy to clean up your dirty bedroom, messy closet or the black hole that is your car's backseat.
Take control of your situations, and leave them for the better.
Reorganizing your belongings is ideal during this period.
2. Get sexy.
Channel the sign's ability to turn up the sexual energy, and wear something that's a bit out of your comfort zone.
Put on your red lipstick, and walk up to that guy at the bar.
You're only pretending, after all.
3. Let it go.
Death and rebirth are both strongly associated with this sign.
What do you need to let die, so something new can be born?
What would you like to let go of?
What would you like to bring into your life?
4. Go there.
As you ask yourself these questions to see what you need to let go of in your life, don't be afraid to borrow the Scorpio's ability to get real deep.
It's uncomfortable and kind of scary, but allowing yourself to feel and process all of your emotions will make it easier to let them go.
You will make room for new things, just in time for 2016.
5. Get in touch with your soul.
Scorpios are masters of solitude.
When given the option, they will always choose time alone.
Block out some space in your calendar just for you. Listen to your inner thoughts, reflect and relax.
It may also be nice to observe other people around you and see what qualities they possess that you admire.
Take a look in the mirror.
What traits do you have that stick out?
What might people want to borrow from your playbook?
All signs have their strengths, and it's important to remember that while you can borrow and learn from others, you should always be yourself.
Though it's fun to try on other personality traits, especially during Halloween, it's important to not forget we are all fabulous just the way we are.
Happy Scorpio season!
