Empowerment and self-mastery
Being able to critically understanding your ownself allows you the ability to make the changes in your self that are needed for true transformation. This is the sign that gives you this ability. The transformation you make is what gives you the empowerment that is needed to transform your whole life in the direction you want to take it.
Passion is to make a bold statement about your abilities.
The ability to transform your self, your life and even the things you create shows the amazing and wonderful things that come from that transformation. This is the bold statement they are speaking about. Even the things that others may not understand, you have gained that knowledge and understanding that they represent and become extremly proud of what you have accomplished.
Directing your emotional intensity so that it can be used clearly occurs when you let your intuition guide you. (Ashman 217)
Learning more about your own emotions as well as understanding the meanings they hold inside of you gives you the knowledge needed to be able to control and place that emotional energy into the right places in your life. This gives you the ability to create and not destroy those parts of your self and your life that are very significant to your own happiness.
Experience a possible rebirth.
The ability to know your self enough to create a form of transformation in your self that creates a new life is one of the most special gifts scorpio's have. Everyone has this ability in them, it is just a matter of locating this special gift inside of you.
Empowering insights are rewarded for embracing your intuition.

Described as powerful, weak, independent, clinging, passionate, and cold. (Woolfolk 44)
The best and worst of human nature. (Woolfolk 44)
I believe that this one all depends on how you are studying a scorpio. They have the potential of being the worse but what one has to ask them self is how did they get to that place in them self. What lead them down that path.

They need to transmute their fervor into positive relationships and meaningful work. (Woolfolk 45)
It is very easy for them to waste themselves on what is unworthy of them, and then their feelings turn inward, become imprisoned, at times even destructive. (Woolfolk 45)
More than any other sign, Scorpios live at a high pitch of emotion. (Woolfolk 45)

This is a big Key. That energy inside of them, the one that looks for revenge, is a strong one and powerful. The biggest lesson for them is to take that large amount of energy an put into something more helpful than destructive. The ultimate goal is to learn this about them. That energy that lays inside of them is meant for good, but when there is no where to place it or they are having difficulty located something positive to place it they can release that energy towards a more destructive path.
Often feel as if they are the lone warrior in a harsh world. (Woolfolk 46)
Complex person who can not always express how they feel. (Woolfolk 46)
When they are trying to figure out there feelings they must step inside them selves to discover what is going on. They will shut them self off from the world to do this. Not until they return back to the world will they have the ability to speal about what they feel.
The things they want , they want badly. (Woolfolk 46)
It is their secretiveness that makes people so interested in finding out what they think. (Woolfolk 46)
This I believe to be so true. One of the hardest signs to learn, was mostly in part to scorpio's not revealing too much about them selves on that inner personal level. I have found that when they are going through something they get very quite and shut them self off from the rest of the world. On a perosnal level this is not because they do not want to be around people it is because there main focus is on what they are facing at that moment.
