People born under this sign are intense, analytical, investigative, probing, digging, wanting to get to the bottom of things. Scorpios are inclined to great secrecy, but there are times when they can be exceedingly and courageously honest, and can appear to be cruel in their willingness to articulate difficult truths.

The negative side makes Pisces too vague, deceptive, and prone to live in its own fantasy world. Pisces is a comforting sign, one eager to make self-sacrifices.
