Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs in astrology. Although their fierce personality may lead some to believe they are a fire sign, they are actually amongst one of the water signs. They love, love, love getting to the bottom of things. It is what they are best at. (Usually.) When leading with passion, these individuals are able to discover the absolute truth with intimacy being their driving force. At other times, this personality trait can come across as manipulative and overbearing to others. They walk a fine line that continues to intrigue and confuse the people around them. 

In this article, we will get nitty gritty with all things Scorpio and tackle the following:

  • Determination 
  • Mysterious 
  • Very sexual

  • Obsessiveness
  • Suspiciousness

Scorpio Compatibility

Relationships are a major part of a Scorpio’s identity and it would be silly not to talk about it. They love love but can be picky until they’ve found their compatible match. 

There are a few things, in particular, a Scorpio looks for in a partner. First of all, they need honesty. If you keep them in the loop of your emotional wants and desires, it will go a long way. They will be more likely to share their thoughts and feelings with you. Also, don’t be afraid to keep them on their toes! Scorpios love a little mystery in their life. It keeps their spirits soaring high. Plus, they are extremely sexual beings, so an element of mystery can add to a healthy sex life between you two. 

Now, let’s dive deeper into a Scorpio relationship to each sign. In the process, we will navigate all the do’s and don'ts to a healthy relationship with a Scorpio.

Scorpio & Aries 

Emotions can definitely run high with this one. Aries energy is encompassing which can overwhelm a Scorpio. This can kickstart jealousy in a Scorpio which will leave them feeling vulnerable and reclusive. Obsessive behavior like this can be a recipe for disaster, but it doesn’t have to be. Remember, you have to give to get. Selfishness will be the couple’s biggest downfall. 

Scorpio & Taurus 

You know what they say: opposites attract. Taurus can encourage Scorpio to snap out a depressive episode and Scorpio will help their Taurus dig deeper to resolve any unresolved issues. You both have sensual tendencies and show love through passion, attentiveness, and protectiveness. Just be cautious of a few things. Remember to always respect your differences. Taurus can be seen as bossy which doesn’t always pair well with a power-hungry Scorpio. Lead with loyalty to keep the fire burning. 

Scorpio & Gemini 

This match is a total hit or miss. Your shared interest for reading people (to filth) will bind you together like glue. You’re both inthralled with a good mystery, puzzle, or challenge. Use this to your advantage. However, keep in mind that you both have unique intensities. Gemini may not be emotional or physically passionate enough for a Scorpio. This boldness may overwhelm a Gemini.

Scorpio & Cancer 

These two water signs can form a deeply complementary pairing. Trust and safety is at the top of the list for this duo. Neither sign trusts easily, so it’s crucial that both individuals can be confined to one another in order for their needs to be met. For this couple, it’s just going to be real awkward and then real intimate, real quick. Just trust one another and enjoy your time together. 

Scorpio & Leo

These two, quite opposites, can make for a dicey pair. Mysterious Scorpios are rulers of the night. Leos, on the other hand, soak up the sun with confidence. This can be intimidating to a Scorpio, who may feel inferior to an attention-grabbing Leo. In the worst case, it may even bring out jealousy in a Scorpio. Leo should be cautious with a Scorpio but continue to lead with intensity and passion. 

Scorpio & Virgo 

You both love digging deeper. Scorpio and Virgo want to get to the bottom of everything. This mentality will keep you interested in each other and amazed with the world around you. Continue to find beauty in the small things. Also, Scorpios may need to give their Virgo partner time before they are fully comfortable. Although you’re both sensual creatures, a Scorpio could scare away a Virgo with all their intensity at once. Make sure to give each other space when overwhelmed. This is key for a healthy, lasting relationship.

Scorpio & Libra

This combo has amazing sexual chemistry. This can be a beautiful balancing act between lightness (Libra) and darkness (Scorpio) if it’s done the right way. Libras are known to be social butterflies who will flirt, flirt, flirt. This can push a Scorpio over the edge and stir up some jealousy. Deep down, the Scorpio is just feeling a bit insecure and wants to feel secure in their relationship. As a result, Scorpios will constantly make sure they can trust a Libra through various acts. While problems will arise, always focus on the passion between you two. 

Scorpio & Scorpio 

Two Scorpios are powerful to say the least. This duo will be high-intensity in every area. Lots of burning passion. Lots of empathetic understanding. Lots of bountiful loyalty. You two will immediately pick up on each other’s minor cues, fuel emotional intelligence, and lead your relationship with fierce enthusiasm. You will protect one another until the end. 

Scorpio & Sagittarius  

This is a relationship powered on rebellion and a little bit of danger. It’s the similar willpower in both of you that will keep your connection alive. However, this relationship is stewing in drama. There will be an abundance of getting even and battles for dominance. Two power-hunger people does not always make for the best relationship. Just remember to keep an open mind and let your stubborn wall down every now and then.

Scorpio & Capricorn 

Communication is key for any relationship, but it is absolutely the most important factor between a Scorpio and Capricorn. Secrets are the biggest downfall for this pair. Both of you are more than capable of playing games, but remember that sooner or later you’ll have to cut the act. The sooner you honestly communicate your intentions, needs, and desires, the better you will feel. 

Scorpio & Aquarius 

Usually, a Scorpio and Aquarius relationship is an odd dynamic to say the least. Scorpios are intense, sexual beings. At times, their boldness can misfire onto a silly, lighthearted, and free-spirit Aquarius. A Scorpio loves control and it might be hard to come by with an Aquarius partner, who loves their freedom. You’ll need to meet somewhere in the middle to make things work. Keep the mystery alive and you just might have a fighting chance. 

Scorpio & Pisces 

These two signs are extremely compatible. Both people bring sensitivity and pure connection to the table. With time and a deep understanding, this bond can feel like a safe haven. However, when you are going through a bump in the relationship, you will both simultaneously recluse. To avoid this, both of you can practice by being more aware of your emotions and tackling them head on. Don’t forget, it takes two to tango

Scorpios are one of the most fascinating signs. There are so many layers to these water signs that even they have yet to discover. Every Scorpio (and every relationship) is different but hopefully after reading this article, you can better understand how a Scorpio’s strengths and weaknesses help or hinder a relationship with you.
