Zodiac Sign of Scorpio


When Scorpion meets Ram the attraction is immediate, and the air is thick with arousal. Traditionally, macho Mars, the ancient god of war rules both Aries and Scorpio, bestowing the warrior spirit on each of you. But you make different use of the gift. The Scorpion is intense, proud, private and patient, where Ram is forthright, impatient and vigorous. Mars is best placed in strategic Scorpio, so you're cool in a crisis, determined and ready to wait for the moment.The raging Ram rushes to the risks of romance, where you may take a 'wait and see' stance. When you at last give the Ram permission to make a move, fireworks blaze as Mars meets Mars, especially if sensual Venus harmonizes between you. You live with the knowledge of the searing depths beneath your calm exterior, Scorpio, but the revelation of these may really surprise the Ram. Allow a little leeway, for you're dealing with a naive creature. No one is more ardent and honest than the Ram; these are qualities you admire, but patience helps you to appreciate them fully. If the fiery one charges ahead, negotiate what you want. Remember though, the word 'negotiate' is not in the Ram's dictionary, so you'll have to teach it.You're a creature of schemes and calculations, where Ram is inspired. You have different approaches. Sometimes the woolly one is naive. Accept it. At other times, the directness of Ram is the kick in the pants your strategies need. Give each other a long leash and find mutual benefit.Your match can be successful in business if you work on your differences. Fiery Ram is a Cardinal Sign, where Scorpio is a Fixed Sign. Cardinal Fire takes charge, but you resent control, so expect some struggles over power. If Aries pushes, you have a poisonous sting. Restrain the Ram too often and an inspirational partner will be off.Both of you can be jealous and possessive, but you will give the Ram a beginner's course on the meaning the word . The Ram has a roving eye and, for you, betrayal is serious. Together, you're formidable, a combination that can conquer the world if you can negotiate your private pact. It's a difficult match, but worth the effort for those who persist.  Top


When opposites meet they generate heat. When Scorpion meets Bull, the air fairly crackles. It'll be love at first sight or the opposite, for you won't be indifferent to the earthy Bull.Warrior Mars and deep Pluto rule your sign, where Taurus is ruled by sensual Venus. And, when Mars and Venus dance there are flames in the bedroom. As opposites, you complement each other well and that will be the fascination at first. Yet the very things that attract you may meld into the wedge that drives you apart if you don't find a mutual understanding.Jealousy, possessiveness, carnal desire and the Fixed point of view, these you have in common. Your appetites are strong and your needs important. But the knee-jerk reaction of the insecure Fixed Sign is to control situations. Here's where trouble starts as irresistible Mars meets immovable Venus. If you're not up front with your feelings then you'll end in a power struggle.You're a private, secretive creature and the Bull is not always inclined to disclose, even though both of you can be bluntly honest when you need to. You're insightful and tend to probe restlessly when you feel things aren't right. Don't launch too many venomous darts at the Bull or you'll unleash a force that may make even you nervous. By and large, the Bull leans to placidity. If roused, it's another story and the strength of this beast is a match for you.You both have strong opinions on everything from food to politics, so stay away from subjects if you know you disagree. If you want trouble, you'll know how to stir the Bull up. The Bull adopts a 'live and let live' attitude, something you'd do well to learn from.When committed, you're both loyal and love to share with your loved ones. This can be a passionate, erotic relationship, but yet it will be easy for you to pursue practical goals. Secure circumstances are important, though you need to take a risk from time to time. Once again, discussion is the key. Given harmonious aspects to serve you, this can be an enduring and fulfilling union.  Top


When Scorpion meets Twins, it's an encounter of creatures from two different realms. Mars the warrior and Pluto the underworld lord rule your brooding sign, while Mercury, bright messenger of the gods, rules double-sided Gemini. You focus with intensity, a proud being who masks powerful forces beneath a calm exterior. Gemini is chatty, bright and may well have told you their life story before you've even mentioned your surname.You carry the depths of the Water Sign, with unreadable eyes that hold the promise of a secret life. Gemini radiates the exuberance and mobility that flow from the element of Air. You play a hidden hand where Gemini lays the cards on the table. Scorpion is serious and cuts to the heart of a matter. Twins love flirting and will discuss anything and everything, specializing in sidetracks. You choose trusted companions and hold the world at arm's length, while Gemini has more friends than you can shake a stick at. Gemini will ask any question and tell any secret. This bright creature is a butterfly flown close to King Cobra. Yet, you find the Twins fascinating. There's something about that 'hard to pin down' flightiness that makes you want to do just that.Scorpio is suspicious and vengeful when slighted, where Twins will be playful and seem to take nothing seriously. With your intense inner life, the Twins may also tire of looking to see what's going on underneath the surface. You'll have to wear at least some of your heart on your sleeve otherwise you both may lose interest. Air signs don't like conflict, so the minute Gemini meets the Scorpion volcano, things could change. You may seethe over something the Twins forgot two days ago. "Why don't you just say so?" may be words you'll hear too often.Scorpio is a Fixed Sign, so you can give stability and strength to the Twins. As a Mutable Sign, Gemini's inventiveness in turn can suggest possibilities you would never have thought of. The attraction here is strong, fascinating and sexual, but you will not find this an easy match. Good communication is the key to a future together.  Top


The attraction is intense and you will find that this delightful creature responds at exactly the right level. Scorpio and Cancer are a truly rewarding combination and because both are Water Signs, your emotional connection will be the elixir of life for you both.With the tender Crab, the extended sexual bliss is so fulfilling as to be truly transcendent. The two of you should be, could be and would be soul-mates, so long as the time is right. Cancer is the more passive, but since the Crab is a Cardinal Sign, the creative ideas and emotional drive are high enough to guide your powerful energies along bright pathways. There is an instant rapport between you; this attraction can grow into a deep and abiding love based in passion, but reinforced by mutual understanding and soul-friendship.Scorpio, a Fixed Sign, is ruled by passionate Mars, crown prince of desire and seething Pluto,lord of the underworld. Moon-ruled Cancer is drawn to your strength and responds to the thrumming energies of the submerged Scorpion powerhouse, while you in turn will find a refuge in the Crab's emotional commitment. Cancer's primitive sensuality is ignited by your dynamic Scorpion passions, and because the Crab is endlessly loyal, your jealousy is not so easily aroused. You feel secure in Cancer's warm, cosy abode and the Crab's need to own and possess a loved one is not at all feared by the Scorpion.You are both deeply intuitive and can naturally sense what will please the other. Your communication on intimate mode is wordless and so intense as to be almost psychic, even telepathic. This magical world is a mutual joy that the two of you can build, decorate and expand, as the depths of the Scorpion are plumbed and the heights of the Eagle are attained. Cancer is affectionate, so you will feel secure and loved.You will approve of Cancer's excellent ideas and money sense and your role will be to provide strength and drive when the Crab gets tired or loses focus.Cancer's emotional commitment and Scorpio's profound understanding can form an indissoluble bond. This is a perfect match.  Top


Romantic Leo, a Fire Sign, is self-sufficient, confident and an ardent lover, loaded with personal charm and physical magnetism. Hmmm. A marvellous challenge. Despite the bravado, the bold yet straightforward Lion will be instantly fascinated by your strategies, for the subtleties of the Scorpion are legendary.The bedroom blitz is a genuine screamer, for the combination of Fire and Water generates enough steam to drive a turbine. Leo's enthusiasm and passion must be returned in equal measure, but Scorpio's sexuality is profound, all-consuming and intense, so no problem there. Leo loves to shine, so sex is of the nature of a proud display, and the Lion loves to gather trophies. Scorpio seeks transformation through the sexual experience, so on your own side, the quest is rarely taken on so lightly. Ruled by Mars, the god of primitive action and Pluto the lord of the underworld, the Scorpion mixes primal passion with a profound need to uncover the mysteries of life and death, including and especially sexual ones.Leo can be jealous, usually out of pride, while your temperamental jealousy arises in a deep need to control. The Lion is no weakling and will soon unsheathe those formidable claws should the beast be thwarted.Leo will soon tire of any sulky jealousy and possessiveness. You too will tire of the dance, then you won't be so inclined to flatter Leo's ego or accept the maned beast's endless desire to dominate. Can you put up with the constant extravagance and shameless social climbing?If you love a Leo, get a full chart comparison to see if there are other less explosive factors. Well placed Moons can allow you to live and work together if not in harmony then at least with a sense of destiny and achievement (and good sex). If the steam turbine can be harnessed it can supply power for whole communities of lesser folk. If not, patch your wounds and head south. Top


When Scorpion meets Virgin there is immediate interest. If romance is in the air, you'll set the bedroom aflame. Scorpio has an erotic nature and the Virgin has hidden depths. Happily, you will find the journey from passion to commitment surprisingly easy.Scorpio's elemental Water mixes well with the Earth of Virgo. You will be able to work and cooperate. Talk is an important issue! Both of you are cautious about expressing your inmost feelings, but, in the end, the Virgin likes everything plain and up front. Thus, you will need to lay your cards on the table eventually, and this is not easy for you. You're a deep and mysterious being, enjoying privacy and keeping your secrets. Pluto, lord of the underworld, is one of your rulers and few are invited to his hidden kingdom without a serious examination of credentials. Mars also rules your sign, making you a passionate warrior, ready to rise to the important challenges.Virgo is ruled by Mercury, you might think you'd have little in common with this active and straightforward Virgo. However, that's not the case at all. Even though the Virgin seems plain and practical, there are depths to this being that are hard to plumb. This is because your sign, Scorpio, sits on the cusp of the Virgin's third house of communication. Thus you may find in the Virgin someone in whom you can confide your secrets and someone you'll learn to trust over time. In return, the Virgin will give a confidence. Virgo is a creature who does what's right, something you'll come to respect. Once committed, Scorpio is loyal, an unflagging ally. The Virgin is a quick-minded creature and loves to analyze where you're creative and imaginative. Nonetheless, you'll admire and complement each other. Your incisive perceptions are a good match for the Virgin's eye for detail.Scorpio is a Fixed sign, where Virgo is Mutable, so you'll be able to lead the way and give stability while the Virgin contributes behind the scenes. If you share goals, you can accomplish anything.The sensual Scorpion is an ardent lover, but jealous and possessive. Discuss a problem. In romance or business, you share a unique companionship. This is an ideal match.  Top


Mars the warrior and Pluto, the lord of the underworld, are the planetary rulers of powerful Scorpio. Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, rules high-minded Libra. Thus the meeting of Scorpion and Scales is an encounter of passionate Mars and tasteful Venus. If the planets favour it, this may be the glorious romance of mysteriously different natures. However, it's one thing to succeed between the sheets, where Mars and Venus thrive, but effort is needed to move from a cruisy coupling to a true companionship. If you're both prepared to adjust, you can make it work. Scorpio is a Fixed Sign, ruling death and rebirth. You're both passionate beings, but Scales is an idealist where you're a realist. Scorpio is a schemer who takes time in the inner sanctum. Friends may call you stubborn. Scales loves a wider view and loves to embrace new or changing ideas.Libra can be indecisive, but you will be strangely patient with this, Scorpio. Your fixed energy endows you with passionate loyalty once committed. Air loves debate, but not fighting, where you have a deep rage when roused. You're possessive in love where airy Scales values partnership deeply, but doesn't want to be controlled. This is a difficult match and may work best if there are business interests in common. Even then you may not always understand the mystery of each other. Top


The attraction between two Scorpions is intense. You two are so much alike, and yet you understand each other so very little. The doubling of the Water Element gives profound emotional power and a lens that magnifies every element of your complex individuality. This match raises intuition to its greatest heights, or flings it to its greatest depths, but because you are both Fixed Signs, your biggest challenge will come when you face a battle of your individual wills. Moreover, should one or both of you have a particularly active Mars, you'll be prepared to employ your poisonous sting. Since you know your own secret weaknesses, you also know your partner's.Compromise is not a skill either of you care to develop.Scorpio can be both jealous and demanding. Every minor storm soon blows up into a tornado. Many Scorpions would rather destroy the whole city than let another control the citadel. However, though you hate to compromise, in personal relationships concessions must be made. Make the effort to ensure that you remain on the same team, because there is no more formidable opponent than another Scorpion!The real value of a Scorpio vs Scorpio match lies in its potential fo r spiritual growth and personal development. Scorpios are loyal and deeply focused, but need to solve considerable inner turmoil. If you love another Scorpion, you must use this potentially shattering relationship to leverage yourselves out and away from the narrow perspective of the dust-dwelling insect, in order to revel in the grand overview of the soaring Eagle, the more enlightened symbol of your Sign.This combination is very problematic, but can function on a higher plane (as well as in the boudoir) when Moon Signs and other factors are complementary. It's a recipe for a complete overhaul of both personalities, so if you have the nerve, go for it. If not, find a more pliant companion before something nasty happens. Top


Passionate Scorpion meets venturesome Archer and, while there'll be fun for awhile, you may struggle to understand each other in the end. Scorpio is a Fixed Sign, so you move determinedly to the core of what you want. You choose secure ground to explore things. The Archer is a Mutable Sign, loving change, excitement and a far horizon. Being Water, you're emotional, while fiery Sagittarius is drawn to the passions of the mind.It's not that your Archer won't find the encounter stimulating. Sagittarius will try anything once. But you may seek each other out for different reasons. You'll need to talk about what you want both for yourselves and from each other. You're proud and secretive and the Archer can talk about anything and everything while ignoring the important subjects.Mutable signs are evasive and, while the Archer's freewheeling style may fascinate at first, you could find it irritating before long. If Mars and Venus harmonize, your mutual interest in sex could set the bedroom on fire. Jupiter rules Sagittarius and the word 'enough' rarely occurs in Archer's vocabulary. Just so with you!The Archer is independent and will find you intense and possessive. You can lead the parade, for Archer is happy to follow if the journey's exciting. However, without trust and a long leash, the freedom-loving Archer may be heading for the horizon before you know it. And trust is not your speciality. You won't hold your Archer in a gilded cage, but you can bring stability to that wayward path if you can give him or her a little space. Your need for mystery may clash with the Archer's blunt honesty. And Sagittarius carries sharp arrows to prick any pompous self-importance. The Archer has a temper but cools quickly, where you will simmer and simmer until you explode. Shared goals will help to build a base for what can be a very tricky relationship and the Archer's vision may be just what you need. Common ground and a long-term understanding will be the road for your union. But it will still be a difficult match. Choose wisely. Top


In romance or business or both, this is a powerful combination, one of the best matches in the Zodiac. You have a comfortable and easy affection between you, as if you already know each other well. And, if Mars and Venus favour you, the bedroom will be steamy.The Goat provides a key element that is difficult to find, a partner you can rely on. Thus, you'll be tempted to reveal yourself in all your seductive and passionate glory. For a proud and secretive creature, this is a risk. This relationship requires trust and commitment. The Scorpion often likes to taste the whole banquet of life, where the Goat will be more conservative. But, if you two declare loyalty, you'll be an unstoppable force.Remember that the Goat will have no patience with a Scorpion that wants to play the field. Unleash the fanatical desire that lurks in your depths and the goatish one will soak it up. Mars and Pluto rule the Scorpion. Conservative Saturn rules the Goat. You can both approach things with determination and realism. Neither of you is scared of tin tacks!You share a mutual sense of reserve, but each of you will secretly enjoy the fact your other half can penetrate the mystery. Watch that a tendency to jealousy and possessiveness on both sides doesn't get out of proportion, for both your signs will exact revenge. The Scorpion and the Goat who fall out will need good lawyers.If you negotiate beforehand, you eliminate problems that may otherwise occur. The elemental Water of Scorpio is well matched with the Goat's Earth. You can both be practical and share your feelings, but you may have to watch getting bogged down. Keep things fresh. You can help the more reserved Goat open up new depths of feeling. In return, your Goat brings practical assistance and a companionship that lifts you to determined and constructive action.You're a Fixed Sign, brimming with loyal determination and you're drawn to make the best use of joint resources. The Goat is a Cardinal Sign and is ambitious. Goats love control, but point out to them the most effective way to do something and they'll always give you a hearing. As long as you discuss plans, all will be well.Share your secrets. Don't hold back from your Goat. Caps can be strangely canny if you're hiding something. The two of you can be happy in family, business or romance. Under the right stars, this can be a long lasting and successful union. It's powerful, exciting and enduring.  Top


Both Scorpio and Aquarius are Fixed Signs, and when Fixed Signs meet, it's intense and fascinating. But somewhere along the line a struggle for control will be fought. Passionate Scorpio, a Water Sign, is ruled by forceful Mars, Aquarius, an Air Sign, is ruled by structured Saturn, lord of karma and unpredictable Uranus (sudden upheavals; unexpected changes).The mask that hides your depths is a challenge for the detached Aquarian. There's passion and eccentricity in the bedroom, Underneath, you're proud, private and guard your secrets. The amused and sometimes bemused detachment of the Water Bearer may not take you as seriously as you'd like. And the Air of Aquarius would rather share a secret than keep one. You're a creature of mood, where the Water Bearer is a creature of ideas and changing interest. You may find the constant shifts of attention and ideas intriguing at first, but testing over time.You like to hold a lover close, being jealous and possessive. This will be too much for the freedom-loving Water Bearer, who loves companionship and a variety of friends. Aquarius is loyal but needs a long leash and time for personal activities. If you see that running parallel with your need for privacy, you can negotiate the tricky path of life together.Sex is a passionate pursuit for the Scorpion where the Water Bearer, though enjoying it, rarely has your appetite. Scorpio can brood or seethe over slights, where Aquarius avoids conflict -- as air signs do -- favouring detachment. If you erupt in all your volcanic glory, you'll lose your diffident companion. Aquarius preaches tolerance. Scorpio rarely suffers fools gladly.The Water Bearer is exceptional among Fixed Signs, loving change and variety, where the general rule inclines you to stick with the familiar. Even so, you're a risk-taker who likes to push boundaries. You're not above pricking the Aquarian composure, trying to get a rise. Scorpion insight loves to cut to the heart of things where the Water Bearer rises to the stratosphere of dreams.If you've no common ground of commitment, you may struggle to make this work. The match is challenging. You will need to look for other compatible features in your charts to make it work. For those of you who can compromise and serve a common cause, it can be a truly rewarding union. Top


The attraction of Scorpio and Pisces is irresistible, a union with every chance of success. You and the Fishes are both passionate and loyal, Scorpio, yet it's easy to enjoy an effortless companionship. Scorpio is a Fixed Sign, so once you've made a commitment, you're devoted. With passionate Mars and investigative Pluto as your life-rulers, you protect your loved one and want to plunge to the deepest part of love.Scorpio and Pisces are Water Signs, flowing naturally together, often seeking a common goal as two streams become a river. Fish and Scorpion communicate subtly, reading each other's moods and thoughts. You both have the gift of psychic dreaming and may come to know about past or future matters through your dreams. However, make sure you don't just flow on and on, enjoying your union, but in reality going nowhere. A little Earth and Fire in your charts will ensure a relationship that is grounded and inspiring. Without this balance, you may drift into escapism and fantasy.The lure of addiction lurks in the shadows of Pluto and the mists of Neptune. Both of your natures are susceptible in different ways. Life together could drift down an indulgent road, unless you work to achieve clarity as individuals and as a couple. Remember that Scorpio's stubborn refusal to change and the Fishes' evasive tendencies can get off track. You're private by nature. Pisces is secretive. If you refuse to face problems, trouble is around the corner. If you address them, there's nothing you can't solve together.You will be devoted to your imaginative lover and in turn, the flair of the Fishes will bring sparkle to your life. Your union has everything from the steamy sensual to the deeply spiritual. Intimate and enduring, it's a perfect match.  Top
