Scorpio the sex machine. Scorpio the scorned lover. Scorpio the deranged bunny boiler, the femme fatale, the dark, handsome and dangerous stranger. Oh, Scorpio. Quite the reputation you have there. But is there any truth to this image, and what’s the bottom line when it comes to Scorpio compatibility with other zodiac signs?
As a Scorpio, you have a powerful personality, with an almost magnetic aura around you. You are determined, forceful and intuitive, with a searing insight into others that can make people quite uncomfortable. And passionate – oh, yes. There’s certainly truth in the notion that Scorpios are highly sexed, but you’re not a manic sexual predator by any means. In fact, you have far too much dignity to indulge in casual sex and you prefer to exhibit your passions with a trusted partner, in private. In secret, even, because there’s a strong element of secrecy to your nature. Compatibility for Scorpios is a complex affair because you’re a complex sign.
What we do know is that your emotions are intense, deep and sometimes difficult even for you to handle, let alone a partner. Those hoping for Scorpio compatibility must be able to handle you as a fairly moody partner. You’re serious and thoughtful and not given to emotional outbursts, but if someone wrongs you, you will not forget it in a hurry. In fact, the vengeful side of your nature is part of what gives you such a scary reputation; you do believe in revenge, and you will take your time in serving it up. Obviously, however, you’d prefer not to have to – so when it comes to compatibility for Scorpios, you’re looking for someone you can trust and who won’t let you down….so you won’t need to plot, scheme and employ dangerously sharp objects.
The other part of your reputation hinges around jealousy and possessiveness, and here the Scorpio naysayers do have a point. You are extremely jealous by nature and your resent any time your lover spends on anyone else, even their family and friends. This level of possessiveness can make it hard for a relationship to function normally in wider society, and can of course cause no end of resentment from your partner right back at you. A good star sign compatibility report, like the ones available from Astromatcha, will help you figure out how to control your jealous instincts so that your relationship can thrive. Scorpio compatibility with any sign isn’t going to live up to its potential unless you can control your deeper impulses.
It’s not all drama, doom and gloom, of course. As a Scorpio, you have many fantastic traits to offer a relationship. All that power and mystique is summed up in your mythological archetype, which is the sorcerer. You are direct and determined, and will help your partner to make the most of themselves. When you’re happy, you’re a romantic soul and will make your partner feel like the most important person on the planet. That high sex drive is a plus for a partner who loves to feel wanted, and you will always fight for your partner when the chips are down. Scorpio compatibility works well with a surprisingly wide range of other signs: the key is finding a partner who can handle the power struggles with aplomb, won’t set off your jealousy and can appreciate the depths of passion you offer.
More than most other signs, relationships are a learning curve for you. When you do find someone you truly love, and who values what you bring to the table as a Scorpio, compatibility issues fade quickly and you are resourceful and powerful enough to make almost any relationship work if you really want it to. Until then, however, some of your more “interesting” relationships are perhaps best thought of as experimental – or works in progress!
