Scorpio women have a very clear vision of themselves and what they want for their lives. Nothing will turn their heads from this path, and they are in control of exactly where they are going. Their determination and single-mindedness can make them seem like they are hard people, especially when combined with their sharp tongue. But nothing could be further than the truth. They are deeply sensitive, but they have learned to keep those parts of themselves to themselves as protection.
