HOROSCOPE

Being a Scorpio born on October 25th, your ambition, passion and composure are amongst your most well-known qualities. While others may be content with their place in life, you always strive for the next level of success. Your ambition can be unmatched at times, as you are willing to work tirelessly to meet the goals that you create for yourself. Your passion runs deep, but your composure allows you to appear calm and calculated to those around you. Your outward reserve is so well-developed, that even your friends and family struggle to understand you.
