Loving a Scorpio is anything but boring. They are passionate, intense and full of great mystery; a Scorpio knows how to keep things exciting, and their sexuality is nothing to be taken lightly.
Scorpios are naturally empathic and highly intuitive, which makes them more sensitive to emotions than most. Scorpios are dominating and headstrong, but in the end, they will always follow their heart. Because of this quality in themselves, they most often listen to the hearts of others over rational thinking processes. Scorpios can be left confused and hurt when someone doesn’t follow their most authentic desire.
So if you are dating, married, or simply related to a Scorpio, here are the crucial things you need to know.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
12. Scorpios are intense
No other sign in the zodiac can match the intensity of a Scorpio. Whatever they do, they do it with reverence or they won’t do it all.
11. They can be self-destructive
The sign of the alchemist, Scorpio, rules over death and rebirth. Therefore is natural at breaking down aspects of themselves in order to start over from scratch. From an outsiders perspective, it may appear to be self-inflicted abuse however a Scorpio knows that it may take a melt down in order to build themselves back up again And this time, stronger than ever before.
10. They can be overly sensitive
As Scorpios are highly intuitive and naturally empathic, they tend to absorb the energies of others and reverberate them into their being. Let alone try to cope with their own emotional dealings. Because of this, Scorpios can be highly sensitive, and it is important to support Scorpios the way they need to be. Reassuring a Scorpio “that everything will be o.k” and that there is no need to worry. This gesture can do wonders for emotional stability.
9. They are introverted
The extroverted introvert, a Scorpio, loves to be the center of attention when at a vibrational high, yet will become a recluse once the energy is either attained or dispelled. They are naturally gifted at “small talk” and know how to be charming without letting outsiders see their real authentic part.
8. They believe in fairy tales
Magicians, by nature and are keen on reading between the lines. Love stories like The Notebook or fairy tales like Cinderella conjure their inner knowing that miracles are real. They love to search for these hidden meanings just below the surface and will scratch until they break the veil.
7. They are stubborn
The intensity and tenacity of a Scorpio can drive them into tunnel vision. Once they are set on something, it’s hard to make them see anything but what they are focused on. When offended a Scorpio will plant their feet hard and dig in deep. It takes their partner’s soothing and calm demeanour to melt their ice and bring them back to a level head.
6. Scorpios are independent
A Scorpio clearly lets you know they really don’t need you without speaking a word. They are strong, determined and self-sufficient. The hard shell of a Scorpio allows them to manage alright in every day. But what they really need is someone who can match their level. No doubt they have or will have gone through relationships where they assume the leadership role and while they can do this with ease, for the long-term, they are looking for someone whom they can trust enough to lead them.
It takes a lot to earn the respect and trust of a Scorpio, and this is because they can see right through you, don’t ever think they can’t.
5. They tend to be overthinkers
A Scorpio always hears what is behind the words being spoken. The “what’s not being said” is their domain, and because of this, they can’t help but lean towards the overthinking end of everything.
4. They take things seriously
On the downfall, Scorpios are known to take life a little too seriously. They need to be reminded that the universe is playful! They are hard on themselves and are known to hold guilt for a longer than normal period of time. Let your Scorpio know they shouldn’t sweat it “like water off a duck’s back.”
3. They are highly observant
Not much gets past a Scorpio, a natural detective. They will be on to you before you know it. So if you are trying to be sneaky, you’d better be on your A game.
2. They are highly sexual
No doubt, word on the street is that a Scorpio is crazy in bed. If you aren’t looking for anything but the contemporary, choose a different sign to be your mate. Scorpios know how to take normal ordinary sex and amplify it into something more– sensual, spiritual and creative. They understand the power of sexual creative energy and know just how to wield it. But beware if you double cross them; they have complete control over their reproductive organs and can shut it down, turn it off and lock it up just as quickly.
