I found this online and thought to type it so that it can be easier read. I am not sure what book this is from. When I googled “Lessons in Astrology” and “Lessons in Astrology book”, I didn’t get anywhere.
Anyway, here’s it is:
Scorpio the Scorpion:
Scorpio is a cold, feminine, fruitful, fixed sign and is ruled by Mars. The Sun enters Scorpio on October 22nd and passes into Sagittarius on November 22nd.
People born while the sun is in Scorpio are of a pleasant and agreeable nature, kind hearted and sympathetic, not as generous as many who are born while the Sun is in some of the signs. They have acquisitiveness well developed and are fond of luxuries, are quite economical, and can put to good use much which would be thrown away by the average person.
They are very headstrong and stubborn and will allow no one to impose upon them, are slow to anger, although do not forget an injury done them for a long time, and when angered are furious, they are somewhat emotional, somewhat dignified, and can be very deceitful and treacherous if their ruling planet is evilly aspected.
Females born in this sign have a tendency to jealousy. As a rule, Scorpio causes one to be patient, very determined, and better adapted to accumulate wealth that the average person.
Scorpio people harmonize best with those born with the Sun in Cancer or Pisces, although they harmonize fairly well with those born in Virgo and Capricorn.
The fortunate gems for a Scorpio person are the Ruby or Agate. Scorpio people often hold high positions, they are best adapted to work requiring much patience and perseverance. They make good doctors, nurses, hotel keepers, etc.
For a location, they enjoy the country and places near water, they are not as fond of excitement as many are, and are more satisfied to be where it is very quiet. Sailing on the water, fishing, etc, are very entertaining to them.
