An ongoing discussion in the comments section about Scorpios illuminates the wide variety of perceptions about this sign’s capacity for fidelity. Janis has “never met a scorpio that was truly faithful,” while Victoria says, “generally speaking Scorpio is a very faithful and loyal and devoted sign, if they are in love.”
I’m not going to take sides, because both readers speak to part of Scorpio’s truth. What interests me is that we all have strong beliefs about zodiac sign characteristics. And we don’t necessarily arrive at the whole truth of a sign by relying on observations. Certainly, the understanding we have acquired by studying the charts (or just Sun signs) of our friends and lovers is deeper than that which we would acquire from solely relying on the stereotypes offered in Sun sign books. But there is one significant problem with coming to astrological conclusions based on personal experience: They’re personal.
