Complex and complicated Scorpio has many different skills and strengths to draw from when seeking your best career. First off, you’re known for your emotional depths as well as your drive to understand deeper truths; thus, you could find great satisfaction in a career that draws upon these qualities, such as detective, therapist, counselor, physician or nurse. You also work well in high-pressure situations requiring intense skill and focus, such as an Emergency Room doctor or nurse, a SWAT officer, a bodyguard or a suicide prevention crisis counselor. These careers also tap into your innate urge to help others, especially by assisting them in transforming themselves from the inside out. Since you also love being in a position of power and control, you might also enjoy a career in politics or as the head of a major corporation.
