They need to be given every sort of challenge that can be thrown their way, not just because they like being busy, but because they need to be stretched beyond the limit. They get easily bored with a job that they think is not good enough or hard enough for them. These heavy demands urge them to achieve new heights, and even if they don’t, at the end of the day, then can go to bed with a sense of having made progress. The kind of challenge they face can be physical, intellectual, or just emotional.
The problem on this front is that it is hard for them to switch their brains off once they are done for that day. This is especially a problem if the work is of an intellectual kind. In such a situation, it will not only be hard for them to devote their attention and energy to personal and domestic issues, but also to rest and make the most of opportunities that may come their way the next day. So this all immersed kind of devotion to work is quite good, but it should not allow one to take one day’s problems on to the next.
So Scorpios are good at coping with routine, mundane jobs that place heavy demands on you on a daily basis. They give high importance to discipline and precision. But this can also bring a sort of routine in their work, thus making it difficult for them to find adventures in their lives, even though they are quite welcome to the idea. So when it seems that the Scorpio is getting into a rut, the colleagues and superiors must help him get into something daring and adventurous, just for a change, so that he/she can maintain that vitality. Power is very important for the Scorpio, and they are extremely comfortable with it. They might misuse it on occasions, if just for the fun, but when they are serious and firm, they can be the most efficient.
