The Scorpio Mother
A lot of things have been said about a Scorpio's need for control. Scorpio might be the most doting mother a person can have and although they can be a bit of a control freak, their meddlesome nature can be more of a blessing than it is a curse. I should know because my mother is a Scorpio. These people like to get things done their way and, somehow, they have ways to get it without lifting a finger. They are quiet but can be deadly. My mother for example is not a nag … at least not in the traditional way. She has mastered the art of silent nagging. She has a way with words that is more effective than reverse psychology. She chooses her words carefully and may not speak directly of an issue but you will know what you need to do or else suffer her wrath.
That being said, no one can say Scorpio mothers are selfish. They know what selfless love means because that is what they give to their children. They will put their kids As with most parents, they can be subjective and take on their kids side in an argument but it doesn't mean they will tolerate their quarrelsome nature. Scorpios may not be the most classiest or perfect zodiac but they are a perfectionist bunch and tend to be righteous at times. They will want their kids to grow up with manners and the only way for them to teach it is to show them first hand the right way to behave in public. Scorpios worry about image a lot. For some, it may look superficial but not for the Scorpio. They are perfectionists and can be criticizing but they don't pick the people they criticize. They even do this to themselves because, for them, there is no room for mistakes. If, by chance, they realized that they reprimanded you wrongly they will apologize and make sure they correct their ways. This is a good habit that they can teach their children. Making sure they check themselves every now and then if they have put a toe out of line.
The greatest thing about your Scorpio mother is you can treat her as your confidant. Scorpios are great at keeping secrets and the matured ones can give great advice on how you should handle things. They have a thing for discretion and that is always good if you want things to stay a secret. Another good thing that can come out of this is that the children will feel their Scorpio mother is taking them seriously. One of the greatest things parents can give their kids is to show them they respect their kids decisions no matter what age they are. The feeling gives great confidence to the kids and helps to make them grow up to be independent.
A lot of people misunderstand Scorpios but if you have one for a mother you will know they are capable of giving unwavering love and devotion to their kids. They may dote on you but you know and you feel they do that for your own good.
