Happy birthday, stunning Scorpios! As the most powerful sign in the zodiac, Scorpios run the world with unmatched dedication, passion, and creative abilities (Astrology 101‘s Katelyn, Friskyscopes writer Kiki T, and The Frisky’s Editor-in-Chief Amelia are all Scorpios). There are a million reasons to love Scorpios, from your unwavering loyalty to the way you never stop seeking the truth. As a Taurus with two Scorpio best friends, I could gush for days, but for now, let’s take a look at 10 ways the rest of us can live our lives a little bit more like a captivating, complex Scorpio…
1. Understand your personal power and its profound effect on the world.
2. Be completely loyal and committed to everything in your life, from the people you love to every task you take on.
3. Create relationships based on shared emotional intimacy and never stop striving for more depth.
4. Give the best advice.
5. Never stifle your emotional intensity — the world needs people who are unapologetically passionate.
6. Listen to your desires and do whatever you can to make them a reality.
7. Use your unique understanding of people to find the most tactful response in every situation.
8. Don’t be afraid of your deepest, darkest emotions. Understand that you have to deal with those feelings in order to move forward, and encourage others to do the same.
9. When things are bad, and you feel like they can’t possibly get any worse, always have faith in your ability to persevere.
10. Don’t forget anything. Ever.
