The Scorpion or the Eagle. Ruling planet: Pluto. Element: Water. Quality: Willpower. Ability: To focus on goals.You are the strongest members of the zodiac. Because of this, there is no middle road for you: Choose the high road or the low road, but choose you must. Unlike the other astrological signs of strength, you don’t waste it showing it off. You wait until you truly want something and then focus your will on your goals, drawing them in like a fisherman reels in his net. You have the capacity to get what you want.
