Scorpio kids are boys and girls born around 23 October to 22 November.
Scorpio kids are sensitive, responsive, considerate and kind. But they need to feel secure, loved and trusted, without which they tend to misdirect their intensity towards anger and manipulation. These kids are extremists, and very emotional either in love or anger. With proper guidance, and consistent display of love and affection, these kids can achieve wonders if they put their mind to it, instead of misdirecting their intensity. They have a clear idea of right and wrong from babyhood, and do not easily let-go events where they have been wronged or hurt.
These children, born with Sun in Scorpio, love and desire power. They are strong and rarely get ill, and recover quickly even if they do. They have the inner strength to say 'No', and to go without, if need be. They have strong desires, and may become intensely angry or manipulative when they do not get their way. These kids may even hurt others just to get their way. As a parent, it is important to restrict them in manipulating others to get what they want.
They tend to get revengeful, especially if they are hurt or when angered. From an early age, they need to be taught to avoid extremes, and to seek the middle way. They also need encouragement to be willing to share, and develop good habits concerning belongings, money and the balance between material and spiritual things. They learn well from good examples at home.
Scorpio kids are also investigative, and they are very sensitive. They tend to pick other people's feelings and hidden motives, and may even withdraw if they perceive others are capable to inflicting physical or emotional pain. With 'detective minds', these kids would not let anything go until they get to the bottom of an issue. They love science-fiction and mystery books, puzzles, mazes, chess and checkers. It helps to streamline their imagination by giving them something to do, and some time alone to delve, discover and create. Scorpio kids also learn about themselves by studying cocoons, crystal formations and other natural phenomena that show the phases of transformation and metamorphism.
Although, companionship comes easily to them, these kids tend to be loners. They do not easily trust others, and it is most important for parents to establish trust with them, and keep all avenues of communication open. It can be very difficult for anyone to get into their 'circle of trust', making these stubborn kids difficult to work with - and difficult to find what they are they most passionate about. However, they seek permanent change. With plenty of love and proper guidance their cruel sting of the Scorpion (selfishness, cruelty, over self-concern) can be transformed (Phoenix) into the free and noble eagle (I serve, I heal, I share). Intense and sometimes driven, these kids are capable of ambitious achievements if their energies are directed to avoid extremes.
Baby and Toddler Scorpio
(0-5 years, approximately)
Scorpio kids are intense, investigative, and secretive. They rarely get ill, and recover very quickly even if they do. From birth to schooling age, here is how Scorpio kids grow:
||Birth - 6 months:
They are cautious, self-contained, serious, and intense. They need unconditional love, and to feel safe and protected. They need affection and cuddles, but on their own terms, and certainly do not like to be tickled. They like routine, and usually do not like surprises.
They usually begin to discover fun elements that others may find distasteful, but they usually need approval and permission to get dirty. They enjoy water play, and like games that involve fitting shapes, colours, etc. together. Their need for privacy increases, and they begin to become aware, or look to understand, the surroundings. Even at this tender age, they do not appreciate being laughed at.
||18 months - 3 years:
They are increasingly sensitive, stubborn, and have an increased need for privacy. They may appear sulky, and 'No' seems to be their favourite word. They are usually late talkers. They also begin to test their power and boundaries at an early age, and may ask awkward questions about sex and death. They need honest and age-appropriate explanations to their queries.
They continue to exhibit intensity and volatility, and need plenty of reassurance. This may be a difficult stage for parents because they need to really feel loved unconditionally, and feel approved of - no matter what he does or tries. Parents need to be patient at this stage, mixed with perseverance. They also need rules and discipline, but only that are fair, reasonable, and meant to keep them safe.
School-Aged Scorpio Girl
(6-12 years, approximately)
Scorpio girls have a typical tendency to keep things, and emotions, private. They are emotionally strong but very sensitive, and may cling to painful things - not wanting the world to see their inner tears. This trait makes it difficult to have open communication with them. These girls love games like 'hide and seek' or 'treasure hunt' that feed their tenacity for hiding things. They also love it when others reveal their secrets to them, which makes them feel trusted and feeds their need for concealment. Sometimes, sharing secret aspects with them may also provide a peek into their mind and spirit, and help them release their emotions.
With a strong drive focused on the future, Scorpio girls crave for tools to support their aims. Their goals keep changing with age, but the determination remains and rewires itself for the next great quest.
It is difficult to teach these girls bedtime routines, and they love to get up at night. They thrive on darkness and like to explore to find the unknown. As they grow up, their explorative nature turns into questioning beyond simple parental questions. They do not accept fluffy explanations, and it is better to provide them with factual answers, otherwise their imaginations tend to run amok. Truthfullness, no matter how uncomfortable, goes a long way in winning their trust.
Scorpio girls attract many suitors because of their mysterious nature, but are difficult to get past the surface. However, parents have a challenging time to overcome this alluring nature.
School-Aged Scorpio Boy
(6-12 years, approximately)
Scorpio boys are reserved, and have a strong sense of territory. They need a private space or room, where they can think and process life, and get away from too much information or sensory overload. These boys do not appreciate anybody's unbidden presence into their sanctuary, or without respect. They need consistent display of affection to come out of their shell, without which they tend to withdraw even further.
These boys, like the Scorpio girls, expect promises to be kept, and always want the truth - nothing but the truth. They love the feeling that they are trusted, and need family members to be trustworthy. Even if their parents break their own 'code' with them, they need a very good reason. With uniform strictures and plenty of love, these intense boys usually respond with honesty and frankness.
Scorpio boys have a good deal of strength, good health, and a fair amount of aggressiveness. They have little respect for authority, and love to dominate the family. From an early age, their aggressiveness need to be tamed by teaching them the importance of structures, and the art of being a good and humble looser. This requires a lot of ongoing consistency and affection from their parents, but goes a long way in directing their intensity to a bright future.
As they grow up, they become aware of the attractiveness that their mysterious nature reveals, and require age-appropriate discussions about sexual responsibility. These loyal boys may need guidance so that companionship do not turn into trophies.
