Being a Scorpio born on October 23rd, you are characterized by your passion, ambition and calm demeanor. You have set very specific goals for yourself and are willing to work tirelessly to meet these goals. Even though you are always working towards progress, you rarely become overwhelmed. Your friends and family marvel at your ability to stay cool, even in the most hectic situations.
Water is your paired element and out of all the zodiac signs, you are the only to have a fixed relationship with the element. Water is the element of emotions, as they are often take on the qualities of the ocean, mysterious and powerful. You ride the waves of emotion with understanding, which allows you to be determined and stable. Embracing the positive qualities of water will support your growth, but beware of the stubborn and moody qualities of unsettled waters.
The Scorpio's ruling planet is Pluto and as you were born in the first Decan, or part, of the sign, you actually receive a double dose of Pluto's power. Being the planet of transformation, Pluto is responsible for your drive for power, transformation and renewal. It is Pluto's influence that will always lead you to a path of success. You want the best for yourself in all that you do. While this makes you competitive at times, it is one of your greatest strengths. Avoid letting your motivation hinder your personal relationships, as you may become more focused on manipulating others than connecting with them.
Your natural drive and abilities are well-suited for a variety of careers, although settling on one may be difficult. Competitive careers, such as law, business and advertising may be a good match. If you are more interested in helping others, careers in education, public service or medicine might be fitting. Your creative inclinations may lead you to a career in arts or entertainment, such was the path of Ryan Reynolds, who was also born on October 23rd. In whichever path you choose, display the same determination as Pele, another of your celebrity birthday twins.
The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a crowded sightseeing bus on a city street. You have a desire to expand your social horizons and experiences. Do not deny your cultural thirsts, as they will play a key role in your personal development.
