Photographed by Alexandra Gavillet.
Scorpios are all kinky, sarcastic, and totally obsessive. Now that we have your attention, let's be serious. Maybe it's because they're hard to get to know. Maybe it's because they're born during a time of year that we already associate with all things spooky and macabre. Whatever the reason, people with only a passing understanding of astrology tend to paint this sign with a broad brush.
As a group, Scorps are more than what they seem, but there's always a chance that some individual members of this sign actually see themselves in these more general descriptions — or, at least they know how to spin them. So, we took to the astrological corners of Reddit to find out what real people with Scorpio placements think of themselves.
Read on to discover how six Scorps square their personalities with their sign's reputation.
