Nick was born on November 3rd and as such is a Scorpio. Scorpio is the eight sign of the zodia, representing those born between October 23 and November 21. It is a water sign pictorally represented by a scorpion (although other symbols of it include an eagle, a serpent, a phoenix and a dove) and ruled by the planet Pluto. Scorpio birthstones are topaz and opal and they are most compatible with the following starsigns - capricorn, pisces, cancer and virgo.

Scorpios tend to strong, both physically and emotionally, and have a strong self-control. They are energetic and passionate, but can also be be jealous and secretive. Tending to be more deep-thinking than others, they are sensitive and keen observers of others. Their ability to recognise why people do what they do, gives them a tendency towards a calculating and manipulative attitude. Generally, they are quite cynical and never forget someone who has wronged them in some way, finding it very difficult to forgive them and being easy to anger.

Scorpio is seen by many astrologers as the most extreme starsign. The intensity and focus it brings make Scorpios good leaders with a firm desire for security and an ability to overcome almost any obstacle. Their intensity can also cause them to flirt with danger, pushing themselves and those around them to their limits, while their focus can make them come across as rude and somewhat unsympathetic.

Scorpios are actually divided into five archetypes, and Nick falls into Scorpio II (November 3 - November 11). Those in this category are considered to be powerful people who touch the darker side of life. They contain tremendous energy but it is uncertain as to whether they will direct this in a positive or negative direction so care must be taken. They feel that time is on their side and are not afraid to wait for what they want and so much of their actions progress slowly and are unseen by many because of this. This ability and evident predisposition to wait can lead them to becoming broody, or even depressed. During this periods it is likely that their darker side will come to the front. They find it difficult to express themselves in words and are, more often than not, silent, finding it easier to express themselves without words. Although they are deep thinkers and feelers, they are often unsure about the meanings of their thoughts and feelings and any attempt to confront them on this can be dangerous. This deep sense of feeling can lead to those born in Scorpio II to dedicate themselves to the more pleasurable side of life and can find themselves being dominated by their sexual nature =D
