Signing Off: Scorpio

By Guest Blogger | Nov 1, 2010

“Scorpios are highly sensitive beings, although they may not necessarily show it. They are not apt to put themselves in positions that readily reveal a sense of vulnerability. Their motivation for a spa experience may come from the desire for both physical and emotional regeneration. They have a deep level of resolve and are less bounded than many others by a fear of intensity. As they are the ones who will plunge where many others won’t, they are likely to be open to more pushing-oneself-to-the-limits experiences such as deep-tissue massage, detox fasts, and bootcamp workouts.”—Stephanie Gailing
