THE SCORPIO WOMEN
Scorpio is a powerful sign. Dark, moody, real, and infinitely sexy. In many ways it's the most unique and dramatic sign, and one of the hardest to do justice to in a written description. Many facets of Scorpio personality can sound negative when described in isolation. For example they can be highly obsessive and compulsive. To some folks that can sound downright scary. In practice though many find it to be highly flattering, sexy and addictive.
Hate isn't the opposite of love, indifference is.
Scorpio women savor emotions, and in many ways are the most human of all the zodiac signs for doing so. Though few would say it so directly, most enjoy emotional intensity (good and bad), and have enormous inner strength to handle anything they may find in a partner. Most Scorpios prefer a good fight with a partner in preference to being ignored.
Intuitive, passionate and self confident, the Scorpio woman will often know all your secrets before you know much, if anything, about her. What she doesn't learn from you directly she'll pick up from reading between the lines, and you'll soon realize that in many ways she's in control of the relationship, all without seemingly lifting a finger.
If that sounds like she's going to be the spider and you're going to be the fly... that's typically not the case. One of the great challenges and frustrations for Scorpios in relationships is that they care, almost too much. While they are typically more skilled than their partner at reading and relating to people the bottom line is that...
The partner who cares the least in a relationship has the control
For all their passion and interpersonal skills often it's not the Scorpio who has the control in a relationship. Many Scorpio relationships involve a partner who without any effort or conscious thought can wrap a Scorpio around their little finger. Simply because their Scorpio cares more than they do.
Due to this Scorpios can end up fairly wary and pessimistic about the concept of true love. Ironically, each bad experience can make all their traits that much stronger and more intense next time.
Scorpio women are very skilled at relating to others, and as such can be very good friends and emotional healers. It's a one way mirror however. Highly secretive and subtle; she will often prefer to give only a limited view of what's really going on inside herself. They often don't like a partner to know quite how smitten they are, due to the vulnerability it creates.
Oh, and we invented sexy
For those who have never dated a Scorpio this can all sound fairly scary. This is an intense woman. However, that scary Scorpio intensity can be highly addictive, especially for passionate and intense partners. It is scary, but it's a good scary and not found anywhere else. In many ways Scorpio is a study of how to be sexy without needing superficial tricks or gimmicks.
Uninterested in the shallow or superficial, your Scorpio woman will have an immense curiosity, so if you have secrets to hide then you're best off steering well clear. Scorpios often love both keeping and uncovering secrets.
To go off at a slight tangent for a moment, it's interesting to note that the scorpion is unique among the other zodiac animals in many ways aside of the obvious poison/sting. For example, it's capable of killing itself in preference to being killed, is nocturnal, photophobic (a 'sixth sense' used by spiders etc to avoid predators - they pick up on the tiniest changes in light and dark to detect movement before they can see it), they also shed their skin multiple times in a life cycle. All of these have direct parallels with Scorpio behavior and personality.
THE SCORPIO MEN
When a Scorpio man falls in love, he gets really attached and can often come too close to his partner. To the best of his knowledge, a relationship with someone is either a relationship with “the one” or not, and he will never settle for less than what he knows is right for him. His emotions are deep and very hard to change once they are there, so if his partner sparks his heart, there is a bigger chance that his love will turn to hate than for it to fade or disappear. He will be intense in his approach and often dismiss the tender side of his emotions, as if it was expected of him to not show how weak he can be. With really deep feelings involved, Scorpio man is capable of incredible compassion and emotional understanding.
The sign of Scorpio represents sex and is ruled by both Mars and Pluto, our planets of instincts and primal sexuality. The main difference between Scorpio and Aries, also ruled by Mars is in the fact that Scorpio is a feminine sign, turned to the emotional sexual connection rather than anything else. This man can be anything, from a soft-hearted, wonderful and tender lover, to a sexual deviant, a pervert that will scare his partners away. This depends on his level of restriction and inhibition, emotional or sexual, and it is sometimes hard to understand.
It is often said that a Scorpio man can be obsessive, possessive and vindictive, but the truth is he can also be loyal, supportive, compassionate and incredible in bed. This man has to deal with unusual emotional depth, leading to his extreme sensitivity and his need to close his heart in order not to get hurt. The only reason he becomes vindictive is in his deeply emotional nature and his incapability to forgive the depth of his injuries. He may seem fatalistic, as if everything was too big to handle, for he is intense and observes life as a series of small deaths, unworthy of living unless it is lived.
BEST LOVE MATCH: TAURUS + SCORPIO
As all opposing signs, Taurus and Scorpio can be madly attracted to each other, more so because of the sexual nature of their signs. We wouldn’t primarily link Taurus to sexuality, but it does represent sensuality and is a sign that governs physical pleasure. Their relationship is a connection of deepest emotions and sexuality that no other couple in the zodiac is privileged to have.
Any sort of sexual frustration could lead to a pretty dark approach to their sex life. Scorpio has this depressive need to die naked and sweaty in the arms of a loved one, while Taurus has the need to be loved this much. It may even sound romantic, but carries with it all unsolved emotional issues as baggage into their sexual encounters. This doesn’t mean their sex life will be bad. On the contrary, they will both find it fantastic, because they will fill it with all sorts of emotions, good or bad. In the end, emotion will be the only thing that is left and sex will be a way to connect rather than a means to personal satisfaction. This can become an obsession and even an addiction, but who would give up on the opportunity of such deep intimacy?
As signs of fixed quality, when they click, it is impossible to separate them, and no one would want to when you consider the possible vengeance of Scorpio. They represent the basic contact between sexual planets Venus and Mars, while being from the physical and emotional realms as an Earth and a Water sign. They are the signification of a deeply intimate relationship and a very rich sex life, for as long as Scorpio is tender enough and Taurus ready to experiment.
Scorpio rarely trusts anyone but themselves unconditionally and in a relationship with Taurus they need to build the sense of security. We wouldn’t exactly say that Scorpio is insecure, but their deep emotional nature makes them question everyone’s motives in caution not to get hurt.
There is a fine line between two possibilities in a relationship of Taurus and Scorpio. The first possibility would be the one in which Taurus partner is really closed up, unreachable and too quiet. This could wake the suspicious nature of Scorpio and their obsessive interrogations will damage their mutual trust even more then they lacked it in the first place. The second option would be for Taurus partner to be open just enough to share what Scorpio needs to hear.
If they manage to find this fine balance, they shouldn’t have a problem. As they get more and more intimate, Taurus will feel secure enough to share everything Scorpio wants to know and Scorpio will realize that their stable and unchangeable Taurus won’t disappoint them.
As all opposing signs, they seem completely different and as if they have nothing in common. Still, we should keep in mind that opposing signs complement each other perfectly and their communication should be exciting, challenging and something to enjoy if they are both confident enough.
While Scorpio would go in depth about all those things Taurus doesn’t seem to care about, they could be very surprised to find that behind the tender and alive nature of Taurus, there is a deep understanding of everything natural going on, however dark it might seem. In return, Scorpio will show Taurus the value of life from their perspective. Taurus will find it incredible how Scorpio as a sign of death and destruction, can understand the depth of life and emotion better than any other sign in the zodiac.
This emotional connection is really something to deserve. Not only do these two represent the axis of Moon’s special dignities, exalted in Taurus and fallen in Scorpio, but they also have Venus as a ruler on one hand and the intense element of Water on the other. When they fall in love, they become an image of eternal love. There is no better personification of Had, the god of the underworld in ancient Greece, and Persephone – an idea of immortal love that can never die.
They value life and love in a way that no other sign understands. The depth of their belief system goes as far as planet Earth’s core and if they begin their relationship on the same page, this could be what binds them for years. Although their perspectives differ when it comes to material and emotional values, their core is the same and everything else can be adjusted.
Although Scorpio is a sign of change, this doesn’t mean they are not very slow in their everyday routine. As a fixed sign, they are, as much as Taurus, static and inert. There is a lot of energy to Scorpio, nuclear energy lies within their sign, but when it comes to everyday life, they tend to repeat patterns and blend in what mostly other people find “normal”. They do however need new, exciting and breathtaking experiences from time to time, but they would be ok having them alone if their Taurus partner wasn’t interested.
Of all possible activities, they will mostly share sexual ones and all experiences of physical pleasure. They will both enjoy discovering how far their sexual desire could lead and this will keep them busy most of the time.
