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.
Generally characterized as brooding loner types who favor long black trench coats, these guys are often in a band, ride a motorcycle, or practice some form of dark magic – or, sometimes, all of the above!
The Scorpio man needs space, but he also needs you to lay down limits. Don’t give him an all-access pass to your life (are you listening, Sagittarius, Leo and Gemini ladies?). He needs an edge of mystery, some part of you that he’ll never figure out. Dancing this fine line can be exhausting and unrewarding for some women, and we don’t recommend it unless it comes naturally.
The Scorpio man and Virgo woman can build a solid relationship if both partners are willing to compromise. The Scorpion’s dynamic personality may sometimes make timid Virgo feel overwhelmed. He’ll often see her as far too practical, while she’ll find him too intense at times.
Games of strategy like chess will engage their minds, and they would be even happier if you’ll take time to play with them. When buying them clothes, you won’t go wrong with black or red, and they tend to like scents that are warm and spicy. Jewelry usually appeals to a Scorpion man, especially something from a far-off land – like heavy amber from Africa.
Scorpio can be extremely moody and has an explosive temper. Fortunately, he usually gets over his rages quickly. Nothing provokes him as much as anything that threatens what he considers his. He’s the type who forgives, but he never forgets. The Scorpion is also fiercely protective of his loved ones and usually feels that it’s his appointed duty to keep them safe. If Scorpio cares about you, he’ll defend you to the end and will be the most loyal friend you could imagine.
The Scorpio personality loves to think about deep and often difficult subjects, so books or documentaries on psychology, religious cults or occult subjects, true crime, unsolved mysteries, war, and incredible heists will often fascinate them. They are captivated by the intricacies of the human mind, heart, and soul, as well as the classic Scorpio fixations on sex and death. Rebirth and regeneration are major themes here, and they may be fascinated by stories of life after death, reincarnation, and near-death experiences.
It could be a rocky start for the Capricorn woman and Scorpio man. The Goat often lacks the passion Scorpio thrives on. But if Scorpio takes his time, he may get her to open up and share her feelings, which can be the beginning of a strong relationship of respect, trust and loyalty.
Behind every Scorpio man’s relationship style is…his mom. He has a complicated, love/hate relationship with his mother that can border on Oedipal. Cutting the cord isn’t easy for him, and his resulting behavior pattern can be tricky to navigate. He fears that every woman wants to “engulf” him, yet he constantly creates situations where he needs to be mothered by his mate. You may have to endure a “come-here-now-go-away” drama until he realizes you’re not trying to control him. He’ll need to take baby steps to let you in.
Bonnie and Clyde. Sid and Nancy. Brangelina. The Scorpio man is looking for an iconic relationship, a hall of fame soulmate story—and he refuses to settle for less. He may give his body, even his name or DNA. But until he finds his mythic other half, the person who makes him look and feel like a god, he’ll never give his soul.
Scorpio is the sign of deep bonding and extreme detachment, making him a bit schizophrenic about intimacy. Closeness frightens him, because deep down, he fears separation. Abandonment issues? He’s got ‘em for days. While he longs to merge souls with you, another part of him is terrified to lose control. He feels pain at a deeper level than any other sign, and breakups can haunt him for decades. To protect himself, he’ll try to keep some sense of “space” in the relationship—having a long-distance relationship, working late, or keeping his own apartment. If you push him to take a step before he’s ready, he’ll draw back. This could go on for years until he feels “ready” (read: safe enough) to come a centimeter closer.
The loyalty, passion and sense of duty of the Cancer woman are bound to impress the Scorpio man. Both signs are romantic and emotional, so there will be no lack of passion. The Crab will feel safe and secure with her Scorpion, while he will feel completely adored and admired.
Their sense of humor can be majorly sarcastic, even cutting, and not everyone will take kindly to their jokes. Scorpio men love to get inside your head and delight in playing mind games. Like a spider in the center of a web, these devious masterminds always play the long game and will pit players against each other. Political science and corporate intrigue are areas where male Scorpions naturally shine, as well as research fields and documentary film making. They’re happiest anywhere they can be behind the scenes, analyzing information and silently orchestrating their complex webs in peace.
The Scorpio man and Taurus womann both tend to be stubborn, so arguments are bound to arise. Conversely, the Scorpion and the Bull will have a deep respect for each other, so they’ll enjoy a deep sense of commitment and loyalty in their relationship.
As everything else that is black and white in his world, so is trust. He can either be unconditionally trusted and relied on, or entirely detached and painfully distant, making choices with no regard to anyone else’s feelings. He has the need to always speak his mind and in general, he will speak the truth. We might even say that his biggest joy lies in giving his observations of the hard truth that nobody wants to deal with. However, if he is angry enough, at his partner, his mother, or the entire world, he could be that quiet man that you can look at all day long, and still not recognize his intentions or his thoughts.
Planning what exactly, you may ask? Well, the truth is, they may not even know, but they can’t help themselves from doing it all the same. Life for these men is like a giant chessboard – and they prefer to strategize carefully, always staying seven steps ahead of the game. Not much for small talk, a Scorpio man will saunter into the party and quietly observe the action. Don’t let his reticence trick you into thinking that he’s not paying attention – even the smallest details are filed away for later use, especially if he’s taken an interest in you.
Scorpio men are infamous for being reclusive geniuses, best when left to their own devices to intently focus on the work at hand. If you can trust their voracious intelligence and relentless work ethic, they will come through every time – but try not to micromanage or give them the idea that you don’t trust them because they can’t help but take that sort of thing so personally that it might completely disrupt the work environment.
Within moments of meeting this guy, you may find yourself divulging all your deepest secrets. When in love, Scorpion men are known to be notoriously jealous and possessive, even displaying stalker-like tendencies once you’ve walked away. This is because, like wolves, most of these guys desire a mate for life – and if they’ve connected to you deeply, and really let you in, they want to keep going all the way. Casual dating and meaningless relationships rarely appeal to these men, who love in a way that is fiercely devoted and all-consuming. Once you’ve committed to each other and you’ve been allowed into his inner sanctum and the private recesses of his heart, he will treat you like the royalty you are and lavish his sensual talents on you until you’re gasping for mercy.
Not all male Scorpios you meet will fit this mold, of course, and many will surprise you with their distinct lack of spookiness and easy warmth. But it’s rare to meet a Scorpion man who doesn’t at least in some way rebel from the norms of society and have some dealings with subcultural elements or spirituality. These guys are known for having seriously intense personalities, with their piercing eyes that seem to look right through you. A Scorpio will hang out on the sidelines, always watching what everyone else is doing while plotting his own plans.
A perfect present for your Scorpio man is something that he has talked about a long time ago and then forgot. He loves to be reminded of things that awakened beautiful emotions inside him, and the best thing to choose is the one he chose himself. Since this sign exalts Uranus, he will be interested in technology and computers, but usually his focus is turned to the discovery of his own depth. You can’t miss with a proper psychology book or anything that will help him understand the flow of life. Choose something that can teach him about alchemy, alternative methods of healing or an honest way to understand God. That is a much better choice than that long wanted encyclopedia on World Wars.
Fascinating Scorpio oozes charm and a magnetism that’s practically impossible to ignore. Women are naturally attracted to him, sensing his deep appreciation for romance. Somewhat of an enigma, the Scorpio’s demeanor is usually cool and calm, but inside, there may be numerous flames of passion. The Scorpion has intense feelings about almost everything, although he often does a good job of hiding them. Scorpio men have a powerful sex drive, and are adventurous in the bedroom. He’s also very romantic, but may never show his true feelings about you in public. However, when the two of you are alone you’ll be showered with his intense attention.
This lair-like theme may extend to other rooms of his house, with heavy draperies over the windows and dark-painted walls. Natural light isn’t often super important for these nocturnal creatures who may be much more interested in showing you their night light that projects stars all over the ceiling, or screening movies with their own projector.
When it comes to his home and family, the Scorpio man demands creative control. Protective and possessive, he’ll set up a utopian family structure under his tight supervision, even home schooling his kids. He wants everything he does to be the “ultimate”—and molds his family according to his uncompromising vision. Scorpio rules the reproductive system, making him a natural father. He longs for a close-knit family filled with love and open communication, and he’ll do what it takes to get that.
He is deep, emotional, loyal and giving, right to the point when he gets hurt by the smallest thing. He can be painfully honest, liberating and obvious in his character and intentions, but he can also be mistrustful, possessive and jealous, and even aggressive when looking for vengeance.
The Aquarius woman runs on intellect, while Scorpio runs on emotions. He’ll admire her intelligent conversation, but he’ll have trouble understanding her emotional detachment. The Water-bearer will feel trapped and smothered by the Scorpion’s jealousy and domineering nature. Of course, that doesn’t mean a love connection is impossible, just that it may take some work.
Once you’re in, should you make it that far, you’ll feel like a goddess. The Scorpio man is a wholly different creature once he surrenders to trust. He lets you be totally sexually expressed while feeling fully respected. There’s no Madonna/whore conflict. The more you fly your freak flag, the more he pledges allegiance.
The best advice? Pay attention. He may not drop subtle hints or circle things in magazines he leaves lying about, but keep a closer eye on what he lingers over while you’re window shopping together, or what he buys for himself.
When on a date, this man will care for his partner as if they were royalty. He wants to see a tender soul in his partner, someone who needs his protection and holds on to values and convictions without a doubt. He will borrow his sweater when it is chilly outside, but there is no guarantee he won’t take it back and become unpleasant as you say something that hurts him for unknown reasons. There is a great chance he won’t speak much, slow in his decisions, movements and change. He will take you to places that he finds romantic, and this could be anything from his basement or a dark hole of a club, to a vampire gathering in his front yard. Depending on his previous relationships, he can be quite open on the first date and show his true self immediately, or be hard to crack, always on the watch of getting hurt again.
A relationship a Scorpio man and Scorpio woman will be one of intense passion and romance. Each will understand the emotional needs of the other. Problems can arise when both partners feel that they’re right and the other is completely wrong, causing heated arguments.
The darker aspects of human sexuality and love often come to the forefront when dealing with a Scorpio man. He loves to delve into his partner’s innermost fears and secret desires, and to find the spaces within them where they are most vulnerable.
Both the Scorpio man and the Leo woman are notoriously dominating. With each aiming to control the other, it will take some work to negotiate the constant battle of wills. The Lion also thrives on flattery and admiration, which Scorpio may be reluctant to provide.
Once you’re in their space, with its deep, velvety sofas that seem to suck you in and hold you fast, you may feel like it’s hard to leave – like a soul trapped in the god of the underworld’s dark domain.
