October 23 – November 21
These little stinger Scorpions have grown fame/infamy for their passion and sex appeal. As water signs, emotions run deep, though unlike fellow water signs Cancer and Pisces, they don’t wear their emotions on their sleeves quite as much, they are reserved and less open about their feelings. Often misunderstood, they are seen as mysterious and dark, but once they find a person worthy of their bottled up emotions, the feelings will overflow.
Scorpios are fixed signs and have great energy and focus, coupled with intuition and depth common with water signs. Ruled by Mars and Pluto, as the animal that is its symbol, they’re primal, fearless, and have killer instincts – their venom can make even the toughest beast weak in the knees and fall.
They are loyal, motivated, and resourceful paving themselves great careers, and make for good leaders, the same qualities, however, can lead to a level of over-competitiveness. The scorpion value honesty and fairness, they are intelligent and great problem solvers – though they tend to be distrusting of the people around them. Their instinct craves for adventure and new experiences, sometimes making them impulsive.
Scorpio for Partners
No doubt the most sensual and sexual of the signs, Scorpios ooze a certain appeal and beauty that lures its prey into an infatuation spiral. But you won’t immediately see this characteristic upfront across the room, as it takes a level of getting to know them to realize this.
Rarely do they initiate a conversation, and at first, they will be reserved. Once you’ve permeated their wall, you’ll be up for a ride as you uncover the things they’re passionate about – it will be infectious, your Scorpio’s charisma and passion to things they love can convert anyone into a hobby or fandom or even cult.
In love, they’ll give all they have to win the affection of the one they adore. But they have a quality that makes them destructive, not knowing when to stop, they walk a thin red line bordering on obsession. They love too deeply, even madly that their distrustful nature takes over, and jealousy and possessiveness may creep in. When hurt, the scorpion may grow vengeful and manipulative.
Attracting Scorpio men can be elusive, according to Astrology Zodiac Signs, while the air of mystery and the brooding sex appeal of these men are irresistible on so many levels, don’t seem too keen – don’t be too easy, but don’t be hard-to-get too. What scorpions want is a woman of mystery, and they love playing a good hunting game, but they want the interest reciprocated, so flirt subtly.
Dates will be romantic and mysterious but expect to be treated like a queen by this man as he loves being seen as the strong hero-protector. He might come off quiet, in the process gauging you and your compatibility with each other. Being a water sign, they crave a certain depth in their relationships, so merely physical attraction and heat will not cut it out. They need to be emotionally stimulated, something expected of water signs.
When he falls in love, he falls hard, and it will be quite difficult to make him change his mind once he’s decided on a relationship. Intense and passionate are words that rightfully describe being with a Scorpio man. This will likewise manifest when it comes to sex. Intimacy will be primal, instinct-driven, lacking inhibition, but never with a shortage in emotional connection.
Faithful and dedicated, loving a Scorpion man will be highly worth it. Be careful though not to hurt him, as his intensity and passion can drive him obsessive and possessive. It entails a level of understanding of his depth and emotionality to appreciate a scorpion despite his jealous nature. Very loving and loyal, affection will be rightfully reciprocated if not even more.
Feisty and fascinating scorpion women embody the word sexy, even if she is not trying to. She will go about life, seemingly introverted hiding the depth of emotion and flowing passion that’s inside her. It will require time to win her trust, heart and the real her.Kendall Jenner, born November 3
Scorpion women love being treated right and pampered. Dating her requires a walking the line of sorts – with her inclination for excitement and depth at the same time. Her introversion will require activities that are a little bit more private than merely going for the ‘it place’ where the crowd and the noise will not allow her to get to know you and connect on a deeper level.
A scorpion woman in love is a pool of emotions, full of love and passion. She’ll make sure you know what and how she feels, the ones that she’s hidden to some degree when she was not as certain yet of how she feels. Once in a relationship, she can be quite possessive or jealous, but she’ll never ask or impose on something that she isn’t able to provide – so expect affection, love, and loyalty from her. Sexually, she can get a bit on the wild side, willing to try new things but always rooted in the expression of her deep feelings.
While tender and loving, she is a strong and smart woman who knows what she wants. She is sensitive and any form of betrayal will not be tolerated. Her loyalty and devotion must be reciprocated, and her trust not broken, else you have found an adversary in her. Hell hath no fury like a Scorpio woman scorned, on top of this, they tend to hold grudges and not forgive, nor forget so easily. Let this be a warning if you decide to try to push your luck.
Scorpio Compatibility with Other Signs
If you want to start dating and find the one based on Zodiac sign, MatchMySign.com is the #1 Zodiac Sign Dating Site that allows you to filter potential matches based on astrological compatibility.
Compatibility of star signs is illustrated in an article at Metaphorical Platypus, where two studies were used to quantify the compatibility between signs. A study by Sachs (1998) and Castille (2000) was conducted in Switzerland and France to review significant results using marriage and divorce statistics as to which astrological signs are most compatible with each other.
#1 Scorpio – Pisces
These two water signs show a mutual attraction upon laying eyes on each other, with an emotional connection that runs deep. Both are highly sensitive and perceptive, and the two will find comfort in the familiarity of each other’s personality. Scorpio is a fixed sign, while Pisces is mutable – one loves stability, the other change – what may seem like opposites may actually be a perfect recipe for a balanced relationship.
Scorpio people assume the leadership role in line with their stable nature – while Pisces are more than willing to hand over the reigns and follow the leader. A Scorpio’s clinginess and jealousy may annoy other signs but can be managed by the Pisces who enjoys the attention and protection being offered.
They have shared interests – which taps both signs’ creativity and inclination for the mystical – this means art projects and spiritual retreats might be some activities these two signs are interested in.
The Scorpion is very sexual and may get too rough for the gentle and passive Pisces. But once these two signs are able to manage each other’s expectations and each other’s kinks, sex will be intense between the two. It is these same traits as well that may cause misunderstandings between the two – a straightforward and rough Scorpio can easily hurt the highly sensitive Pisces. Yet again, the two signs are expected to compromise on this.
#2 Scorpio – Scorpio
If it’s passion you’re looking for, there is no relationship quite as intense as a pairing of two individuals under the sign of the scorpion. Only another Scorpio will understand the emotional needs of another, and their tendency to hide behind a cloak of mystery.
Other signs might get confused or dismiss seduction games, but the scorpion loves this type of love play as they understand so well that making up can be just as loving and sexy. This match-up can create a tsunami of emotions that can fuel very sensual foreplay and an even hotter love-making. As a sign that represents sex, they will not have enough of it, which will only amplify their bonding. Given the intensity of the emotions that run between both individuals, drama may ensue, but those born under Scorpio will secretly love it, especially if it means make-up sex after,
Both give high premium to trust and loyalty, and only another Scorpio will not be overwhelmed by another’s possessive tendencies knowing that it comes from a place of love. But both must understand that there is a threshold for anything, and even the most understanding person out there can also feel suffocated. Another issue that may arise in this match is the fact that while they embody carnal desire fueling all those emotions, life isn’t all about sex, responsibilities call for compromise and practicalities that is not very much their strong suit.
#3 Scorpio – Cancer
Cancer pairs up well with fellow water sign Scorpio. Water signs tend to be emotional – and this what Scorpio can offer and reciprocate. Cancer is a cardinal sign and Scorpio is fixed – a good combination as Scorpio does not mind taking the lead in a relationship.
Both are introverted, intuitive, and romantic spending time together will feel like a romance novel – understanding each other so much without having to say a word. Both are not fond of socializing and prefer alone time ‘together’ to recharge. Cancer and Scorpio also have tendencies to be quite possessive – understanding where each is coming from – brought about by concern and devotion – they are unlikely to experience problems of jealousy or feeling suffocated with the set-up.
Scorpio can get a little primal and aggressive when it comes to sex, something that may threaten the crab if they’re not ready yet. However, given both signs emotional tendencies – the crab would’ve felt their emotional connection and is likely to understand through intuition why Scorpio behaves as such.
Their jealous streak must be regulated by assuring each other of their devotion and trust. Scorpio who can be a bit of a daredevil can add spice to the relationship balancing out the too cautious and security-obsessed crab. Cancer, on the other hand, can teach impulsive and instinctive Scorpio a thing or two about restraint and stability. This is a successful relationship that will entail understanding from Cancer and lightening up from Scorpio.
#4 Scorpio – Virgo
Virgo is a mutable earth sign while Scorpio is a fixed water sign – and for some reason the disparity allows them to somewhat see eye-to-eye. It’s not gonna be smooth sailing from the get-go though, their differences are too apparent. Virgo might find Scorpio stubborn and pushy, while at the other end Scorpio sees Virgo as too timid. But as the relationship goes through time, they will realize how the differences can actually work to their advantage. Scorpio will feel especially needed and strong faced with a shy and cautious partner and will be more than willing to take the lead and hero role of the story.
The bashful virgin will admire the passion, strength and oozing confidence, and would be more than willing to hand the Scorpio the reins in their life together. As a water sign, Scorpio is highly emotional, which will work perfectly with the reserved Virgo who needs time to open up and analyzes its partner’s effort and patience in the relationship. Creating an emotional connection first in a relationship is natural to water signs like Scorpio – and it is this which will earn Virgo’s trust.
Sexually, Scorpio’s mysterious seduction style is just the thing needed to be able to permeate and uncover the timid virgin’s hidden intimacy and sensuality. Scorpios are also known for intense love-making setting the virgin’s bar high with their lover’s level of passion. They might not always agree on their idea of what a fun activity and values – especially since Scorpios tend to accumulate things of sentimental value – and Virgo just want a clean living space, but the sex and their personalities will be able to work something out of this challenge.
#5 Scorpio – Capricorn
Both are hard workers who value security. Scorpio gives much respect to ambitious and determined Capricorn, while at the other hand, Capricorn will be mesmerized by Scorpio’s intensity and drive. Scorpio as a water sign can be emotional and erratic, something that earthy Capricorn can remedy with their grounded and stable tendencies. It’s like a balancing act of the yin and yang.
Scorpio will give much respect and trust with Capricorn’s straightforward and honest approach to life. This also enables them to have less anxiety and issues on the faithfulness front – something that is often the scorpion’s downfall. Capricorn is a bit conservative when it comes to intimacy which is an area where Scorpio can help with to unleash their desires. Meanwhile, the scorpion will appreciate the thorough and tender approach the seagoat uses when it comes to sex.
These two find inspiration in each other’s strengths and can complement their areas for improvement. However, as these signs are highly motivated and driven, the relationship may suffer when other aspects of their life – like career or parenthood comes into the picture. Scorpio has the tendency to devote their passion somewhere, forgetting the relationship, while Capricorn may withdraw, seem cold and lack the emotions badly needed by the stinger.
#6 Taurus – Scorpio
Earth and water, this is is an opposite attract scenario, and it is just beautiful. You will drive each other crazy with your passion and convictions – in both negative and positive ways.
Both love the comforts of home, books, and music allowing them to share activities without boring or scaring each other off. Jealous Scorpio may suffocate other signs, but possessive Taurus will just embrace this, viewing it as nothing but a product of devotion. Passionate and primal Scorpio will be a completely new experience for the deliberate bull. The instinctive sensuality Scorpio coupled with the steady romance will produce lovemaking sessions so fiery. Scorpio’s emotion will likewise allow Taurus to feel love in a whole new level.
Arguments may arise as both are fixed signs with strong convictions and not willing to compromise. Jealousy and possessiveness may also spell disaster. But soon as they’re able to manage each other’s expectations, gain each other’s trust, and learn to respect differing opinions, this pairing will be red hot.
#7 Gemini – Scorpio
Differing personalities of intense personalities but with great chances of chemistry. Gemini is air, Scorpio is water; Gemini is mutable, Scorpio is fixed.
Both will be turned on by each other’s unpredictable personality – Gemini up for fun, Scorpio up for anything sexy and primal. Sex will be fantastic even if Scorpio tends to be a little too clingy for Gemini, the twins will appreciate Scorpio’s sexual appetite and instinctiveness when it comes to intimacy. This is much welcomed by Gemini who will feel as if they are experiencing sexual pleasure for the first time.
Scorpio as intense and passionate may find Gemini a bit uncommitted to the relationship. Gemini will find Scorpio possessive and even suffocating. However, once Gemini identifies that the relationship and the partner is worth it, will submit to their emotions. Scorpio, on the other hand, needs to learn how to be more trusting and enjoy the free, fun-loving partner that they have.
#8 Scorpio – Sagittarius
It might seem like it’s not gonna work, but somehow it does. This pairing shall we say is one of two opposites in every way. Scorpio is intense, mysterious, dark, and Sagittarius is carefree, extroverted and can be quite a jokester. Scorpio will be fascinated with the excitement and child-like optimism of the archer. Conversations will be interesting between the two, further sex will come naturally as the physical attraction will be inevitable.
But once the relationship gets deeper and serious, the disparity of the couple will become so apparent it might even control them. Trust will be the top issue in for these two as Scorpio’s possessiveness will suck the life out of the freedom-loving and fiery Sag. The same scenario will play in their sex lives, as the emotional and passionate scorpion will not connect on the deeper level with the archer, worse Scorpio will find Sag a bit shallow.
The key to making this work is to maintain the initial spark and attraction the two felt in the early phase of the relationship. Realize what interested them and loved about each other is a good reminder why it makes sense to make the relationship thrive instead of being pulled down by the differences.
#9 Scorpio – Libra
Libra is a cardinal Air sign, Scorpio is a fixed water sign, and just by those two details alone, you’ll get the vibe that the relationship may not be the best match out there. Libra is bright light, beauty, balance, and harmony. Scorpio is darkness, sex, extremes, and mystery.
Libra might fall for the mysterious and sensual nature of Scorpio, and Scorpio will be fascinated with the cultured and gorgeous Libra. Sex will be highly exciting with Scorpio igniting the heat through their primal nature and emotions, coaxing the analytical and slightly shy Libra. This relationship can get obsessive, a constant pull from each side, yet drawing the two together.
Troubles arise as the level of their emotions and intellect do not align., and their values likewise differing significantly. If there’s a saving grace to this match, it is the commitment and the red hot sex – which they need to develop and grow into the other facets of their relationship.
#10 Scorpio – Aries
Both have jealous tendencies, but both highly reveres trust which allows them to see eye-to-eye. Aries can get impatient with the Scorpio’s water characteristics of emotionality and indecisiveness, while Scorpio may view Aries as shallow.
A wild combination of fire and water, sexual energy is at its peak with these two individuals. Aries approach sex in a very straightforward manner, very interested in the act itself with no time for cuddling. Scorpions can introduce the art of seduction and playfulness into Aries’ primal needs making encounters very hot and passionate on the physical level and very slowly maturing to emotional through time. Emotionally, Scorpio can get hurt easily and deeply – a concept not too familiar with Aries.
Fiery Aries can destroy Scorpio’s emotions while Scorpio dampens Aries’ ambition and goals. This combination can bring out the worst in each other. If they have the patience to pace life together and leverage their sexual connection and trust better so that it blooms into emotional connection and mutual respect, there is the possibility of a satisfying relationship.
#11 Leo – Scorpio
Two fixed and strong personalities come face-to-face in this water-fire match up. Power struggle is the name of the game, as both parties want control of the relationship. Trust and communication will be a struggle as Scorpio tend to be jealous, and the lion’s social circle tend to be the main contributor. Scorpio will be calling out BS on everything that it finds awry with Leo. Headstrong lions will not tolerate this though.
This love-hate relationship features some of the most intense sex though, the parties not getting enough of each other despite the many differences they have in other facets of the relationship. It will take a great deal of restraint from both parties to make it work, but given their explosive passion, it just might be worth it.
#12 Scorpio – Aquarius
Both are fixed signs and difference is philosophies will be apparent in this partnership. Both are loyal and devoted, though opinionated. With a Scorpio being possessive, rigid and unreliable, it will be difficult to find a common ground for the Aquarius. Their elements are contradicting that they might not be able to compromise and negotiate. They both value excitement but other than this, nothing else seem to match. They have a low level of trust, different ways of expressing emotions, and egos that might be too big for one another.
This match will have no problem reading what the other is thinking and if they were able to work with each other can be quite successful.
