In the animal kingdom, the Rat Scorpio is a solitary hunter who is incredibly stealthy for its size. They use their native wetlands as camouflage to sneak up on unsuspecting prey and in one quick stroke grab their victims and drown or suffocate them. Most large snakes use their strength to squeeze their prey to death, but Rat Scorpions know that they don’t have to put in as much effort to get the same effect. Even though they are bigger and stronger than the other snakes, they prefer to prove that they are smarter, too.
In so many ways those born under the Zodiac sign of the Rat Scorpio are the same. Powerful, resourceful, and perceptive, members of this sign know intuitively what moves to make and when to make them. They are careful planners and masterful manipulators, able to get what they want by taking calculated risks and taking advantage of others weaknesses. Members of this sign are extremely observant. They understand human nature so well they can often predict what you will do before you do it, and they are not afraid to use this skill to their advantage.
Above all else, those born under this sign are survivors. Even when they have plenty of resources, they are always looking for more. They don’t intend to be self-centered, they just know that they can’t rely on anyone but themselves, which sometimes leads to a solitary lifestyle. At their worst, Rat Scorpions can become isolated, suspicious, judgmental, and greedy. They need positive people in their lives to help them become all that they are capable of.

A lot of changes will happen in the lives of Rat Scorpions. In many cases life may start off with quick successes and become more difficult in mid-life. This is because Rat Scorpions are very skilled at getting what they want from the start, but the consequences of their actions will eventually catch up with them, both good and bad. Many Rat Scorpions will become disillusioned with success and instead choose to find a more fulfilling path in life. Others will simply need to learn how to be done trying to constantly win and begin enjoying the subtleties of life. Balance is difficult for this sign, but will become more and more important in their lifelong evolution.
Rat Scorpio Traits
Those who pretend to know you best are probably those who know you the least, for your personality is so elusive that all judgments one can make about you may prove wrong! Without wanting it purposefully, you’re a chameleon par excellence.
You’re of tremendous intelligence. Handling paradox with dexterity, you use words as defensive and offensive weapons at the same time. You justify everything by what you call reasoning, logic, but which basically is only your own reasoning, your own logic. You don’t bear being naive or giving way on whatever plane, even on the amorous plane.
Your cleverness is unequalled in business and money questions. You’ve the gift of exploiting other people’s capacities for your own profit. You’re endowed for writing, teaching, but may exercise too strong influence. In work, you’re prone to scatter your interests or undertake too many things at the same time.
Your love affairs are often a mixture of detachment and ardor. There’s more eroticism or sexual game than tender sentiment. Shifty and unstable, you complicate your affairs of the heart as if out of pleasure. Your love life needs animation and deteriorates rapidly with routine.
