Holding similar characteristics to the scorpion, Scorpios are a force to be reckoned with; they are sometimes considered the most powerful sign of the Western Zodiac. Do not let their looks deceive you because beneath their charming personas and welcoming eyes, there is an ocean deep with passion. Scorpios are also the rule the reproductive organs, which explains their highly charged sexual impulses. A Scorpio can either be your best friend or your worst enemy — they will let you decide.
The determination of a Scorpio is unparalleled. The mantra “I came, I saw, I conquered” fits this sign precisely. They are born investigators and will do whatever it takes to find the truth in any situation. Loyal and loving, once a Scorpio lets you into their heart you have a friend for life. They will stand by your side no matter what, many times defending you when nobody else will. Scorpios are powerful and strong, protecting those they love unyieldingly. Other strengths include:
As intense and passionate as Scorpios are, too much of a good thing can backfire. It is not uncommon for this sign to become extremely obsessive and possessive. When they love something (or someone) they can take their passion a bit too far. As a result, Scorpios need to learn the beauty of everything in moderation. This sign should be mindful of developing addictions. They tend to view the world as black and white; Scorpios know no “grey area.” Therefore, a simple habit can turn into a full lifestyle. Other weaknesses include:
Scorpio in Love
As previously mentioned, Scorpios don’t understand the “grey area” dynamic. When this sign falls in love, it is as passionate and genuine as can be. They will do absolutely anything for the people they care for; they view sacrifices as gifts to those they love. The love of a Scorpio is pure, selfless and beautiful. However, because this sign loves so intensely, they are torn apart by betrayal of a partner. A hurt Scorpio is as sad as it is terrifying. You can see the pain in their eyes and the anger in their heart. It is best to be as honest as possible when dating a Scorpio.
Scorpio Love Matches
Scorpios are most compatible with other water signs, such as Cancer and Pisces. This is because just like fire, air and earth signs, signs of the same element generally blend well. Cancer’s insecurities are quieted by Scorpio’s loyal, possessive love. Pisces is a dreamer, and Scorpio helps keep him grounded while expanding his own imagination. Other compatible matches include Capricorn and Virgo.
