Scorpios are NOT into revenge. Scorpios do NOT hold grudges.
Contrary to popular belief. I should know, I am one.
Grudges are a waste of time and energy, and it's better for everyone to just move on. This seems true for every scorpio I know. Holding a grudge means you are stuck in the past.

Revenge is for people who are mentally stuck in the past. Scorpios are not. Scorpios are good, forward thinking people. Why do some a-holes disparage Scorpios by slandering their reputation?

1. November 18th.
I'm a Scorpio, too.

A grudge isn't punishment. At least not to me. Revenge has absolutely nothing to do with punishment, either.

6. Revenge and Punishment are two very, very different things.
Do you understand the difference?

8. Sorry, no. I don't.
You have the "Punisher" logo. I understand that.

2. Some of the best people I know are Scorpios.
They get a bad rap, I think.

3. Once I get even, I consider the matter closed
Of course, someone has to go pretty far to piss me off for me to decide to get even.

9. I was being serious, believe it or not. GEMINIS and TAURUS

10. How dare you ? That's absolutely false!
I'm a Gemini and I'll never forgive you for saying that!:P

11. November 5, here. I have to disagree somewhat, but then, I'm a Sicilian Scorpio.
OTOH, I do have the typical Scorpio desire for justice.

14. If you're born on Guy Fawkes day that makes you a little bit british, whether you like it or not.
Which might explain why my mother gave me a welsh/english first name and an english middle name... even though everyone else in the family has normal names. :)

13. And if we do, they're usually very short-lived.
Probably a side effect of that forward-thinking thing.

You know, we should keep track of those people disparaging scorpios so we can get revenge lat... I mean... umm... nevermind. O8)

15. Scorpian here. I'm not big on revenge. However....
I'm never burned twice. I forgive, but don't forget, and don't consider that a grudge because I just adjust my expectations of that person and where they fit into my life.

I can't say that I've ever met a Scorpio who fits the scary stereotype.

17. I don't think that the Sun Sign is the only factor.
You really have to consider a person's Moon Sign and Rising Sign as well.

It's more complicated than Sun Sign alone.

20. Let's not even start on trines, sextants, and the like.
We'd be here until next Christmas. :rofl:

22. There are 2 kinds of Scorpios. (Nov 11 here)
The first is the scorpion, that will sting and sting for the pleasure of stinging. That's where the stereotype comes from.

The second type is the Eagle that chooses to rise above the pettiness.

23. Speak for yourself
I'm a Scorpio, and unfortunately I do hold grudges and wish for revenge at times. I wish I didn't. Maybe it has something to do with my being on the cusp of Sagitarius. :shrug:
