Scorpio — Among the LEAST common zodiac signs!

Scorpio — Among the LEAST common zodiac signs!

3 scorpionsTurns out that finding a Scorpio is like encountering a precious, rare commodity. But lovers and exes of this much talked about sign already know that, don’t they?

I was prompted to research the least common and most common astrology signs due to a Scorpio hater who derided Scorpios as being as plentiful as roaches and so pervasive that one could not avoid them.

Jealousy is sad isn’t it? LOL. Well, you know what they say, there are two kinds of people in the Zodiac. Those who are Scorpios and those who hate like hell that they aren’t!

Sorry, haters, birth statistics from the National Center for Health confirm we’re special.

Looking at the sum total of babies born from 1995 to 2002, the month of November — the prime of Scorpio season — had the second LEAST number of births.  February babies were the absolute rarest at 2.4 million born during that 7-year period, while November babies were the second least wtih 2.53 million born.

1995 birth data

Guess that means Aquarius and Scorpios are rarest?

Of course Scorpios and Aquarius people are also born in October and January (likely 25 percent of them) and these November and February figures might include a percentage of Sagittarius and Pisces babies, but there’s no way to analyze these tables by day. If I’m able to acquire daily birth information in the future, I will update.

The most common signs born between 1995 and 2002 appear to be: Cancer(based on July births, Leo (August births), and Virgo (September births).

Data from 2006, suggest more Scorpio babies are being born, but that they still are NOT the most common. They were the fourth rarest sign in 2006.

2006 birth data

In 2007, November babies (speculatively Scorpio babies) were the third most rare. Statisticians theorize that fertility rates are lower in the last months of winter, such as February when Scorpios are likely to be conceived.

Anyone born after the above dates would still be too young to affect the number of Scorpios in the dating pool.

Those born before are not tallied in the online federal records but surely mirrored trends of rarity experienced by Scorpios in the 1990s and 2000s.
