Scorpios are strong, enigmatic, independent characters who crackle with an intensity and charisma that makes them un-ignorable. For all of that power though, they often remain un-knowable to others, because they guard themselves and their private lives fiercely.
You can bet there’s something juicy going on, under the wraps, though, because Scorpios like extremes, challenges, danger and darkness. They are, because of their planetary ruler Pluto, drawn to the outliers of human experience. If it’s kinky, risky or thrilling, a Scorpio will be involved somehow!
Scorpios are loyal, smart, shrewd and stoic. They stand by their beliefs, and they don’t crave anyone else’s approval.
Scorpio is like the big, bad elder sister of the Water sign crew. You don’t mess with the turbulent, deadly scorpion my friend, their sting can be fatal - and they make the other signs of the zodiac (apart from maybe Aries, who they share a planetary influence with) look like wusses!
To get an idea of the classic Scorpio personality traits and types, we need only to look to some of the most famous Halloween children: Drake, Kendall Jenner, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds and Ciara.
Typical Scorpio personality traits
PASSIONATE (read: controlling)
If they’re into you then they’re into you, and they’ll want to know everything you do/think/believe etc (you will NOT be allowed that same access to their private world, however). They love sex, they’re very physical, they don’t do ‘casual’, they’re super-intense. Sometimes this fierce love can tip over into something more controlling, but it comes from a place of wanting to protect you, of thinking they know better, of believing you’re too precious a kitten to be let loose in the world. Sometimes it’s magical… sometimes it can get a bit much.
PERSISTENT (read: obsessive)
They’re relentless, seriously. Give a Scorpio a meaningful and positive purpose and they could change the world - there’s no stopping them. Self-doubt, recriminations, a lack of confidence… this is alien to them. They know what they want and they believe they’re entitled to get it. Faced with problems, their razor-sharp intellect can create flexible and out-there solutions and get-arounds. Their charm can win over enemies (though they’ll have noted them down in their ‘Grudge Book’ for later… revenge is best served cold).
STRATEGIC (read: secretive)
Scorpios treat daily life like a mission. So, they’re on point, focussed and ready to work their charms/strengths/advantages to get what they want (and they always know that they want). Watching them is like seeing a magnificent predator, parading around. See it arch its back, flex its claws, flick its tail… it’s going to do something AWESOME. And you’ll never know what’s coming because they don’t share their goals or thoughts with anyone, which makes them even more interesting.
They strategise everything, there’s always a hidden agenda with an agenda. Scorpio would make a great ‘Super Spy’… (literally, ‘The Spy Who Shagged Me’)
LOYAL (read: vengeful)
For all of their feared traits, there’s no better person to have on your side, and in your corner, because Scorpios are resolutely protective and loyal to those they love. If you’re going to come at them or theirs… you’d better not miss. They never forget or forgive, they just DON’T, they’re ice cold that way. And they will wait a long-ass time to get you back, but get you back they will.
FEARLESSLY CURIOUS (read: morbid)
Nothing fazes Scorpio. The more sick/twisted/gory/disturbing it is, the more they need to look. Anything unsolved, mysterious or hidden also draws them like moths to a flame. Some end up embroiled in dark and dangerous lifestyles, some flirt with the occult, some turn this courage into something heroic - doing roles ands jobs the rest of us would run away from.
What are Scorpios into?
Doing a Ouija board. They’re on good terms with Satan actually, they get Frappuccinos and hang out together at the park on Sunday mornings when it gets a little toasty down there in *you know where*…
Meditating. Because they don’t really need anyone else, or (honestly) want their opinion. Retreating into their own headspace is a delight, they can plot and scheme away, and NO ONE can tell what they’re up to, looking all ‘zen’.
Climbing da career ladder. Born to rule, to succeed, to excel, to get to the top of whatever tree they’ve chosen to climb. And they’re at it 24:7, they don’t switch ‘off’ from their ‘work (or wherever their ambitions lie) world’, they are always grafting in some capacity, strategising, learning and networking.
Forming a cult. Scorpios are drawn to the occult (because other people are wary of it). And they enjoy the games and strategies of control. They can lead others into dark places. A Scorpio with a bad purpose is a dangerous animal.
Martial arts. They’re ruled by Mars - combat is in the blood.
Shagging. Because it has all of their favourite ingredients: passion, intensity, intimacy, control, submission, secrecy. Scorpios are top shaggers.
Scorpios exude self-belief and confidence, and literally nothing scares them. Often drawn to the darker side of life, they can be mad, bad and dangerous (though never boring) to know! Scorpios don’t really care if you like them or not, and THAT in itself is a draw. Attractive traits include:
They are uber-confident, not in an arrogant way, but in a ~I’m happy in my own skin~ way.
They love asking questions, finding out about you, analysing your personality (whilst remaining resolutely guarded themselves).
Their intense, piercing gaze. Scorpios can fix you in a glare which you’ll never forget.
Who gets on best with Scorpio?
Aries and Scorpio share a planetary influence, but it’s Mars so unless they’re on the same side (in which case they’re unstoppable) this CAN go another way... like, downhill. They’re either the fiercest of allies or the deadliest of enemies.
The Water sign trio understand each others' moods and emotional intensity, they get that they’re a bit deeper than your Average Joe, and they usually form incredibly close bonds - Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces.
The hot tip for hot sex for Scorpio is Taurus, their opposite sign. Both of these signs are very physical, and can match each others’ sexual drive, intensity and adventurousness…#astroporn.
Scorpio, enjoy your season and please don’t do anything TOO out there!
