HOROSCOPE

Being a Scorpio born on November 12th, you are defined by an outward shyness and inner determination. You will work tirelessly to achieve the goals you set for yourself, which is something that can be said for most Scorpios. Unlike other Scorpios, you may go about your work in a more shy manner, preferring working in the background instead of the limelight. Even your family and closest friends are not above your shy inclinations, as there are people who have known you for years without getting a glimpse of your secret self. Luckily, your shyness also makes you interesting and mysterious to others.

HOROSCOPE

As a Scorpio born on November 11th, your personality is dominated by your shyness, compassion and artistic interest. While you know others who love to be the center of attention, you take refuge in the shadows, where you are far more comfortable to work. This quality makes you mysterious, which explains why others often take interest in you. Although compassionate and caring, your shyness is also present in your personal relationships. Your friends and family marvel at the fact that there are times when they encounter parts of your personality that they did not know existed. Among your most private qualities, is your artistic interests, as you prefer to keep your creative expression private for the most part.

HOROSCOPE

Being a Scorpio born on November 10th, your personality is characterized by shyness, will-power and artistic talent. Mysterious and interesting, you rarely enjoy taking the center stage, as you much rather prefer to handle your work on the sidelines or behind the scenes. In relationships, you take the same shy approach, choosing to keep parts of yourself hidden. Your loved ones are often surprised as they stumble upon a part of your personality that they didn’t know to exist. You appreciate artistic expression and enjoy to express yourself in art, music and/or writing.

HOROSCOPE

As a Scorpio born on November 9th, you are well known for a shy nature and artistic aptitude. While others seem to live for attention, you could not be more of the opposite. You are far more comfortable in the background as you hate when all the eyes are on you. You naturally appreciate artistic expression, which explains your interest in writing, art, dance or other creative expression. While you are very sensitive to your loved ones, they are not immune to your shy demeanor. Your friends and family would be very surprised to know that there are still parts of yourself that you keep hidden from them. Luckily, this only adds to your mystery, which others find interesting and alluring.

Being a Scorpio born on November 4th, you are known for will power, shyness and artistic abilities. You are determined in your efforts and will put in a great deal of effort to meet goals. Although you may be very talented, especially in the arts, you do not require attention, you actually shun it. You are most comfortable working behind the scenes and out of the limelight. This tendency often causes others to see you as mysterious. You take the same shyness into your relationships, your friends are often shocked when a new part of your personality emerges that had previously been kept hidden.
