Scorpio Love and Romance Overview
The eighth sign of the zodiac is ruled by Scorpio and says it all about their attitudes to love, sex and marriage. A Scorpio has a heightened awareness of their sexuality and anyone who chooses this zodiac sign as a partner can be assured of their loyalty, and sensuality.
Love is an intensely passionate and enduring emotion to a Scorpio that may be directed at one person only. Many of the ambitions and actions of a Scorpio are inspired by this love.
Sex is an important element of a relationship with a Scorpio and when making love this is an expression of all the pent-up passion that is hidden in this most magnetic of personalities. Scorpio is actually the sign of the zodiac that exhibits the greatest interest in sexual matters and, as in other parts of their life, the Scorpio partner is both inventive and single-minded.
The Scorpio lover feels that they have every right to be the dominant partner in a relationship and although secrecy is part of the Scorpio personality, will be responsive and demonstrative, although there could be a degree of challenge there as well. A Scorpio partner can be jealous and possessive and this doesn’t always sit well with other star sign partners. Taurus is a good match on this level as they can anchor you and secure you to the earth, somehow balancing the extremes of your nature.
You know what you want from people Scorpio and you don’t see any point in beating about the bush and wasting time when you are quite clear about the direction you must take. The people you come in contact with will instantly sense this about you, but if you are too heavy handed however this could cause others of less strength to walk away from a relationship of such intensity.
Scorpio does not enter into a relationship lightly and are only faithful when deeply in love, preferring to play the field until they meet their ideal match. It is only then that they will give themselves totally and completely.
Be warned that the best way to send a Scorpio off into an affair with another is to relegate sex to the bottom of the list. To a Scorpio this will immediately send out signals of rejection and this is not a path you want to tread – believe me! Be prepared for a very rocky time if you reject a Scorpio partner. They will want to exact revenge and a rejected Scorpio is unlikely to forgive, and will never forget, the hurt.
You have a somewhat dark and broody personality and are sometimes very difficult for your partner to fathom out. You certainly don’t put all your cards on the table, but hold them close to your chest and only let your partner see what you want them to see.
When emotionally stressed a Scorpio can shut down, making it very difficult if not impossible for their partner to figure out what is going on. Some of your own insecurities may be at the bottom of your desire to dominate and be completely in control of the relationship.
Scorpio men and women are wonderful homemakers and possibly the best in the zodiac. They pride themselves on the quality of their home, take great care of their family and will jealously guard their abode.
You have extremely strong principles about how your home should be organized, the neatness and orderliness is uppermost in your mind. However your disciplinarian attitudes could take over and disrupt the very tranquility you are trying to achieve, so be less heavy handed and try to show the softer, gentler side of your personality to maintain a peaceful family home.
Scorpio is rarely demonstrative in public but the one they love will certainly know that they do when the bedroom door is closed. This is where Scorpio shines, showing tenderness, imagination and sensuality in their lovemaking.
Although Scorpio does not put a lot of faith in romance, and may not show their feelings or emotions to others, they expect their partner to be aware of how lucky they are to be part of the world of a Scorpio. Plenty of admiration will go a long way with a Scorpio.
Scorpios, both men and women, have mastered the art of seduction. Yes, Scorpio, you are the supreme lover of the zodiac and I think it’s safe for me as an astrologer to echo the thoughts of many practitioners before me and lay people alike who will attest to the correctness of this statement that you are indeed truly an amazing lover and an intense partner once you have given your heart over to the one you consider yours.
Love for you is not simply a day by day routine and unfortunately this is what happens in many relationships. For you, the essence of love is a creative impulse which you wish to share with that special person and you’d like them to travel this path of romance with you so that you can share the heights of ecstasy, almost a religious transformation through the process of sharing your love, your mind and body with each other.
Many Scorpios love to test their ability with the opposite sex by seeing just how many they can seduce. Sexuality for you is a means of testing your magnetism, your appeal to others. Even if you’re in a relationship and are fully committed, you’re curious as to whether or not you’ve maintained your “edge.”
Scorpio is generally secretive, but in matters of love and romance you are extremely demonstrative. You love to show your feelings once you have chosen a lover, and you need your affection reciprocated.
Being born under the most sexual sign, you are dynamic, emotional and complex in love, so anyone who gets involved with you must be prepared for a bit of a challenge. If they can tread the path with you they will be transformed by the process. Love with a Scorpio is thrilling — it’s never dull.
A lot of people who don’t know you well are afraid of your intensity, the way you dive into your relationships. From you side, it’s just that you basically know what you want from someone, so you don’t waste any time. Everyone you really connect with gets a sense of assurance and security from that confidence.
Although I speak as if the typical Scorpio has a licentious nature, I only say this because that is indeed part of the Scorpio nature but let me add by saying that the loyalty of the Scorpio is pretty hard to beat. Once the Scorpio has deemed another person to be their mate, they will go to the ends of the earth to prove their love and sincerity for their soul mate.
Scorpio gives his or her all to the one they love. If that’s the case, you would be extremely fortunate to be in a relationship with a Scorpio if you honour a rare commitment by responding in a like manner. But slack off, take the Scorpio love and fidelity for granted and dismiss or reject them and I’ll say to you right now, that it will be a grave mistake.
Not only does the Scorpio withdraw their love just as quickly as they’ve given it, irrespective of how much they have invested in that relationship, but they will also make you suffer for that withdrawal of attention and affection. Yes, you will unfortunately have to deal with the darker forces of Scorpio in love.
As we move to the deeper, more complex aspects of the Scorpio love nature, we find such negative traits as envy, possessiveness and manipulation and control being there amongst the mix. Now, not all Scorpios exhibit these traits but to a greater or lesser extent you will find this as part and parcel of their personality types.
Dealing with jealousy is an issue both for you, Scorpio, and for the partner you choose. This stems from your insecurities and vulnerabilities, perhaps from childhood. You must do your best not to visit this upon your relationship as this can also create an incredible pulling back from the one you love most.
In this way your relationship will be based on trust, not manipulation and control, which will only serve to inhibit and eventually destroy the very thing you are trying to achieve.
Scorpios must give their partners sufficient room to breathe and offer them the independence that you yourself demand from them.
Your partner must be someone who’s prepared to grow in love with you. In that sense you expect them to act their best, look their best and to satisfy each and every one of your needs. If your partner is up to the task, they won’t be disappointed in the way you return that love. The Scorpio love, once it’s for real, is supreme.
You can be moody and brooding and hard for your partner to figure out. You’ll often seem withdrawn, thinking about things without sharing your thoughts. And you sometimes shut down, especially when you’re stressed or emotionally deprived. This can be very hard for the people around you.
Unless you give your lover a hint about what is bothering you, you could end up pushing them further and further away. Reach out and explain your feelings as much as you can.
Other water signs, such as Pisces and Cancer, have a close affinity with your changing moods — they are the best at flowing with your emotional shifts. Your opposite star sign, Taurus, which is an earth sign, is also not a bad balance to your deeply intense nature. They will anchor and secure you to the earth and somehow balance your extremes.
