After writing a little tell-much blog on the fact that I am actually a Scorpio and not a Sagittarius, as the newer Astrology books place those of us born on November 22, I have become inundated by e-mails from people, mostly Scorpios, claiming that they also fit the mold of what is typically considered Scorpion behavior. Let us revel in our passion!
Some of the more famous Scorpions can be found at this site: http://www.saidwhat.co.uk/quotes/star_sign/scorpio On the site you'll find many powerful people, world leaders like Condolezza Rice, Theodore Roosevelt, I. Ghaundi, and it is believed that Ghangus Khan was born near the end of October as well. You'll find authors, poets such as Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, John Keats, Ezra Pound and many many novelists. You'll see doctors, lawyers, singers, songwriters, actors and actresses and you'll find infamous people like Edward Teach and Captain James Cook. Painters too, Claude Monet, with his grace, and Pablo Picasso were both Scorps- talk of passion! There's Larry King, Rodney Dangerfield, the lovable Sally Field, and Will Rogers, but did you know - and this thrills me to NO end - My HERO, Sojourner Truth was a Scorpio. Yes she was, so is Billy Graham, and one of my favorite authors - Robert Louis Stevenson. I was named (middle name Leigh) for Vivian Leigh, another Scorpio - and what a match of personalities it would be on screen to see Jodie Foster and Ethan Hawke - or Mauriel Hemingway paired with Scorpion counter Bryan Adams - HOT.
Laura Bush is a smouldering Scorpio - did you know that? Oh, what lies behind those eyes, and that pyrate's smile of hers. I love that woman. Demi Moore, Ted Turner, Goldie Hawn, Grace Kelly - absolutely beautiful people - all with a few really heady and forceful things in common, they don't give in, they don't give up, and they don't compromise much - Martin Scorsese, another famous Scorpio; Julie Roberts...the list goes on. One of the MOST famous Scorpios is not an actor, he's not really an activist, he's more of a generous, stubborn man with the fortitude to never say quit - Mr. Bill Gates. So when I think of the things created, pushed forward, fought for, illustrated, and performed by some of the greatest men and women - many of which I have not taken the time to acknowledge, but would be worth knowing - go see the site - I am simply blown away by their stamina, their zest, and their zeal - I want to be another world contributor. In short, I want you to know that where the great Archers of this world have done what they do, I would prefer to be counted with Sojourner, Mr. Roosevelt, Whoopi, Keats, and Monet.
Be very careful when you come across a Scorpion, we're poised to strike, but often we would prefer to love - with the very same, and the equalled force.
