Scorpio is the most intense but also most widely misunderstood sign of the zodiac. Like their archetypal figure, the Sorcerer, the partners in this relationship are very powerful but can use that power for both good and for ill. How they choose to relate to each other is fascinating. Scorpio and Scorpio compatibility is extreme – but extreme in which direction comes down to the individual couple.
Scorpio star sign compatibility is all about passion, magnetism and raw sexuality, and for Scorpio and Scorpio, compatibility at first is a foregone conclusion. The two Sorcerers sense in one another a partner worthy of their time and attention – an equal. As well as being exceptionally sexually compatible, this couple are also on the same wavelength emotionally. Both know what it’s like to deal with deep, turbulent emotions, so they make allowances for one another’s moods and feelings. Intensely jealous and possessive, they also tend to be very faithful and loyal to one another – if only because they know the fury they will face if they’re not.
On the surface then, this is an intense and exotic relationship, characterised by a raunchiness and a strength of feeling that few signs can match. However, Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet of power, control, destruction and obsession. This couple can quickly become obsessive about one another, to an extent that isn’t healthy for either of them. The Scorpio/Scorpio couple will rarely be out of one another’s sight and will view everyone who comes into contact with them with the utmost suspicion. Because this relationship is so insular, it makes it hard for either partner to seek outside advice from anyone, which trebles the difficulties if things go wrong. Scorpio and Scorpio compatibility is virtually impenetrable to anyone else; this couple are so wrapped up with one another that nobody else is welcome, even as a friend.
Constant power struggles can ensue, because both partners need to be in control. When they feel slighted, each partner can be highly vindictive, so this can be a relationship in which spite plays far too big a role, having a destructive effect on the passion they share. Scorpio is a fixed sign, so both partners will be very stubborn. Compromise is not on the menu in Scorpio and Scorpio compatibility – it’s more a case of who blinks first.
However, where it works well, this couple share a love and a depth of feeling which is life changing for both of them. It’s not always a healthy relationship, but it is a magnetic one, and one which neither partner will be able to walk away from easily. The sheer intensity of it can burn out the couple while the relationship is still young – and if they do split up, it won’t be pleasant. However, despite the rages and the revenge and the calculated spite, still something will draw these two back together again. One Sorcerer wields a mysterious attraction over another, and they simply cannot resist getting back together for round two – or twenty two. Scorpio and Scorpio compatibility is rarely plain sailing, but it can be long-lasting, albeit in fits and starts.
Part of the problem with Scorpio star sign compatibility with another Scorpio is that each partner can see right through the other, for better and for worse. The Sorcerer, so adept at hiding his or her true self from others, has no defence against another Sorcerer. This can be both highly unsettling and at once somehow liberating – if both partners dare to be seen in their true light, they can find themselves dancing very much in step. In that case, Scorpio and Scorpio compatibility can be unbeatable, given the strong desires and resolute determination of both partners. If one Scorpio isn’t brave enough to rise to the challenge, however, then this relationship can be an absolute disaster, with added drama, spiralling out of control faster than anyone can stop it. When the dark side of Scorpio emerges against another Scorpio, it can be frightening stuff indeed.
