Scorpios tend to be wise beyond their years, and may seem to have all the answers, but often have trouble developing their own happiness. A Scorpio is driven by passion, power, with deeply felt emotions which are often kept secret. Scorpios tend to win and succeed, but they can accomplish that with either a powerfully positive attitude or a criminal approach. A Scorpio’s approach to life could be summed up as “intense.” Scorpio is competitive and strong willed, though also determined and loyal.
Pluto and Mars, the planets ruling Scorpio, are associated with intense energy, especially in combination, and intuitive attuning to what’s going on around a Scorpio. The element water, as the saying goes, runs deep and a Scorpio may keep passions deep beneath the surface.
In love, the challenge for a Scorpio is choosing between their love of power and the power of love, and a Scorpio may be possessive to the point of nearly smothering a loved one.
If you were born near the dividing line between two zodiac signs, that is a position known as being “on the cusp,” and the second sign will also have some influence, in addition to the sign under which you were actually born.
- The Libra/Scorpio Cusp–People born on the cusp of these two zodiac signs have high-level communication skills, and intellectualism often rules at the surface. Beneath a more reserved exterior, they may be lusty and interested in engaging in life. They combine a tendency toward the mystical with their scientific and intellectual thinking, and have a strong affinity toward nature. In love, they are romantic as well as devoted, and they are determined in whatever they undertake.
- The Scorpio/Sagittarius Cusp–People on this cusp tend to respond to circumstances with action and emotion, rather than with practicality. They are inspirational and eager, looking to get started on whatever comes to mind, but can seem irresponsible when they jump into things too heedlessly. They don’t want to read about anything they could experience for themselves. Their outgoing natures can sometimes be misinterpreted as sarcastic or dictatorial, particularly when they speak before they think. They tend to be very perceptive about what happens around them, and often enjoy spiritual study and travel. In love they can be devoted to the point of being over-possessive.
Scorpio horoscope sign matches and compatibility
If you wish to attract the interest of a Scorpio, be ready for an intense ride. Scorpio is attracted to sexy and exciting, intense and sensual, and may hang on to you fiercely and jealously once they’ve fallen for you.
Here’s what you can expect in a relationship between a Scorpio and other zodiac signs…
Scorpio is much more intense and sometimes broody than light-hearted Sagittarius, not to mention introverted and possessive while Sagittarius is sociable. A workable relationship with these traits will take a great deal of adjustment from both sides.
These two each tend to be somewhat stubborn and inflexible, which can make their opposing traits difficult to overcome. They share an emotional sensitivity and sense of reserve which can make it even more difficult to overcome the differences. Scorpio tends to be intensely possessive, while Capricorn wants the freedom to work toward ambitious goals.
These two are another difficult pairing, as Aquarius is outgoing and practical, while Scorpio is more introverted and emotional.
Scorpio and Pisces share a talent for intuition, and will understand each other even without a lot of verbal communication. A Scorpio’s passion and intensity can help the Pisces develop some sense of security and stability.
A Scorpio’s sensitivity may prove difficult when exposed to an Aries unbridled tongue, and the demand for Adventure by the Aries may prove difficult against the Scorpio’s intense possessiveness, which can feel stifling to Aries. However, the tendency of both toward a positive attitude and the willingness to expend energy can be productive when they expend that energy on building the relationship.
Both Scorpio and Taurus are possessive and stubborn. When these characteristics tend in the same direction, as in a joint stubbornness with a common goal, the two can be inextricably bonded–although they can also find themselves at odds with one another if their goals diverge.
This is another pairing that will share intelligence and adventure. Scorpio is drawn to Gemini’s sociability, and Gemini is attracted to Scorpio’s intensity. Gemini’s adaptability can make the pairing work.
Cancer and Scorpio make for a passionate and romantic pairing. Both offer love and loyalty, which will be enhanced by the intensity of Scorpio.
Leo may be attracted to Scorpio’s intensity and determination. This makes for a good match if the two see eye to eye, but the stubbornness of each can make things rocky if they have different goals in their sights. Leo’s penchant for popularity may also rub Scorpio’s possessive side the wrong way.
Scorpio and Virgo may share an enjoyment of analyzing people, as well as satisfaction in a practical approach to life. Scorpio brings some intensity and adventure into the mix, and the intelligence of both can help them overcome any relationship challenges.
Scorpio and Libra share a romantic nature that can make a relationship passionate and emotional, and with good communication added into the mix, these two can be a solid pairing.
12. Another Scorpio
The intensity of a double-Scorpio relationship can be off the charts. When the relationship is going well, there’s nothing to beat it. Two Scorpios share passion and possessiveness, and will work hard to solve any problem in the relationship
