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.
To understand a Scorpio, you need to understand just how emotional he is. Often his sensitivity asks for a partner that is slow and tender enough. This is why this man will often end up with other Water element representatives or even better – Earth signs. He is on the hunt for the love of his life, someone to die with, or die for, and if this is not you, he will probably end your relationship before it even started. There is a feel to him that comes out of his connection to Pluto, the ruler of the Underworld, and even the most positive, optimistic Scorpios have this tendency to observe things from their ending point. This gives them the opportunity to use the most out of life and understand the practical value of their experiences.
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.
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.
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.
When a Scorpio man falls in love, he gets really attached and can often come too close to his partner. To the best of his knowledge, a relationship with someone is either a relationship with “the one” or not, and he will never settle for less than what he knows is right for him. His emotions are deep and very hard to change once they are there, so if his partner sparks his heart, there is a bigger chance that his love will turn to hate than for it to fade or disappear. He will be intense in his approach and often dismiss the tender side of his emotions, as if it was expected of him to not show how weak he can be. With really deep feelings involved, Scorpio man is capable of incredible compassion and emotional understanding.
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 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.
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.
The Pisces woman and Scorpio man often bring out the best in each other. The Fish’s understanding nature can go a long way in soothing the Scorpion’s temper. This pair has a great chance of sharing intense romance and passion.
When it comes to parenting, a Scorpio man may not seem like a natural candidate for fatherhood, with his air of intensity and solitary ways. Scorpio men tend to project self-reliance and intrigue, leading you to believe that they don’t really need you – or anyone else for that matter – but lone wolves rarely survive for long. The Scorpio dad needs a pack to protect, connect to, and share with.
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.
It is often said that a Scorpio man can be obsessive, possessive and vindictive, but the truth is he can also be loyal, supportive, compassionate and incredible in bed. This man has to deal with unusual emotional depth, leading to his extreme sensitivity and his need to close his heart in order not to get hurt. The only reason he becomes vindictive is in his deeply emotional nature and his incapability to forgive the depth of his injuries. He may seem fatalistic, as if everything was too big to handle, for he is intense and observes life as a series of small deaths, unworthy of living unless it is lived.
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.
Scorpio is the sign of death and rebirth, the mythic Phoenix rising from the ashes of destruction. You may have several breakups or relationship phases en route to fully committing. Though they will be harrowing for you, he considers these fiery emotional trials a purification ritual. In his mind, the more your relationship withstands turmoil, the more “real” your connection is. Hardcore? You bet.
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.
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.
Still waters run deep with this one, so make no mistake – most Scorpios have deep-seated emotions and are incredibly sensitive, even though they may seem like the most confident guy you’ve ever met. Passionate, mysterious, and unbelievably romantic, Scorpios represent Pluto, the God of the Underworld (and one of their planetary rulers, along with Mars, God of War).
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.
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.
The Gemini woman will need to reign in her flirtatious and outgoing nature if she’s going to build a lasting relationship with suspicious Scorpio. The Twins are also flighty and capricious, which Scorpio may interpret as immature and superficial.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This man’s bedroom may be a space you won’t be invited to enter unless you’ve really proven that you want to know him deeply. Many Scorpio men will construct elaborate canopies around their bed to block out light while they sleep or to create an insular and intimate environment for sexual explorations.
The traits of these extremely independent guys don’t make the best team players, so it may be ideal for them to work remotely or have a secluded office away from the hustle and bustle. Open office plans without even a cubicle for a semblance of privacy might raise their hackles constantly, and they may develop a reputation for being ornery, curt, or overly harsh.
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.
Although he can seem commitment-phobic, he takes marriage and relationships more seriously than mafia initiation. He cherishes trust and honesty—at least your honesty. On the other hand, you may never quite know where he stands. But that’s part of the adventure with a Scorpio. Just when you think you’ve got him figured out, he throws you a curve. Stay on your toes, and he might just sweep you off your feet.
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.
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.
While the Scorpio man is secretive, he doesn’t like this trait in others. He’ll want to know everything about you and will not be satisfied until he discovers all your deepest, darkest secrets. In fact, the Scorpion has a burning desire for knowledge of any kind. This intelligent sign wants to learn all he can about the world, and especially about people. He closely examines potential friends and lovers before deciding whether or not they’re worth his time. If the Scorpion doesn’t genuinely respect someone, he will never allow the person into his “inner circle.”
