In Chinese astrology, the Horse has hard-working and self-reliant on his list of admirable character traits. These ancient astrologers also described this creature as possessing a rebellious streak in his personality. This obstinacy and disobedience are thought to be quite prominent in those people born within the Western astrological sign of Scorpio. The influential sting of the symbolic Scorpion encourages the already defiant, independent Horse to rebel. A Scorpio Horse personality is not a believer in set rules for all, and often tries to be different in life in any way that he or she can.
The Scorpio Horse usually likes the good things in life, and will work long and hard to get them. These personalities are not particularly ambitious, but they do prefer to have enough money for a comfortable lifestyle. They are rather adventurous in their tastes and have a great love of travel. Whenever they can find the time, a Scorpio Horse will want to roam away from their familiar surroundings. These personalities find they need this kind of occasional escapism, especially as they get older and acquire more responsibilities. These people can feel a little stifled by daily regular routines, and many may opt for work that is constantly varied or on the move.
Scorpio Horses may view life from a non-conformist angle right from their early years of life. If they do not, they will certainly gain this outlook well before middle age. These individuals seem to think that rules are for other people, and are sometimes they are there to be broken. This opinion frequently gets the Scorpio Horse into trouble and in the spotlight. They believe in challenging guidelines and pushing the boundaries of traditional ways of thinking. This need to stand out and be atypical can be as simple as wearing outrageous clothes, or as extreme as running for public election.
If the rebellion and determination in the Scorpio Horse's personality are correctly directed, it will help them achieve personal goals. In relationships, these determined and different personalities usually make supportive and loyal partners. They like to lead in the relationship, but this will not be without lots of affection and also a consideration for their soulmate's wishes at all times. The Scorpio Horse is a thoughtful and passionate lover, who enjoys immensely the physical side of partnerships and will often be quite playful in the bedroom.
The spontaneous side of the personality of the Scorpio Horse can be wonderful most of the time. However, it can also cause a weakness of their character. Their love of surprising people without notice may make them appear unpredictable. These personalities tend to sometimes do and say things at random without thinking of the possible consequences first. A Scorpio Horse can be a bit indiscreet with surprises or words, and clumsy with timing, but their intentions are generally good. If friends and partners cannot cope with and get used to this weak spot of unpredictability, these Scorpios may have to be sure to think first before acting.
