Scorpio is the eighth Sign of the Zodiac, and you shouldn’t take that lightly. You shouldn’t take Scorpios lightly, either. Those born under this Sign are dead serious in their mission to learn about others. There’s no fluff or chatter for Scorpios, either: these folks will zero in on the essential questions, gleaning the secrets that lie within. Scorpios concern themselves with beginnings and endings, and are unafraid of either; they also travel in a world which is black and white and has little use for gray. The curiosity of Scorpios is immeasurable, which may be why they are such adept investigators. These folks love to probe and know how to get to the bottom of things. The fact that they have a keen sense of intuition certainly helps. It’s the Scorpion which symbolizes Scorpios, and it’s no accident. Much like the Scorpion would rather kill itself than be killed, those born under this Sign are the ones who are in ultimate control of their destiny. It is life on the Scorpion’s terms, too, since these folks promote their agenda (they are quite the executives) and see to it that things go forward.
Others may find this overbearing (it can be) and even self-destructive, but that’s the beauty of the Scorpion: these folks have tremendous regenerative powers, much like the literal Scorpion can lose its tail and promptly grow a new one. Fearless Scorpions rarely lose, per se, they just keep on going, since they are stubborn and determined to succeed (this Scorpio trait is in keeping with the Fixed Quality assigned to this Sign). Scorpios work as hard as they do so they can someday sit back and feel satisfied with themselves. These folks are intense, passionate and filled with desire. They’re also complex and secretive, so don’t expect to get much out of them, lest they become suspicious and exit stage left. It’s best not to bet against Scorpios, either, since these folks are surprisingly resourceful. Scorpio is ruled by the Planets Mars and Pluto. Mars was the God of War in ancient Roman mythology and is the first (and most ancient) ruler of Scorpio. When Pluto was discovered in the 20th century, it was also assigned to this Sign. Pluto was known as the God of the Underworld in ancient Roman times, so when coupled with Mars, expect some intense energy to head toward Scorpions here on Earth. This planetary combo makes for people who are motivated, penetrating and aware. Scorpions don’t miss much, since they are highly attuned to the vibrations of others. They are intuitive, probing and very focused on knowing who’s who and what’s what. Scorpions can lose their temper (and even become vengeful) when someone gets in their way, so it’s best to give them plenty of room.
Remember, they’re unafraid, and a loss today simply means an opportunity for victory tomorrow. The Element associated with Scorpio is Water. As opposed to the ‘roiling seas’ seen in other Water Signs, a better motto for Scorpions would be ‘still waters run deep.’ Those born under this Sign are as emotional as their waterborne brethren, it’s just that they’re not as likely to show it. The Scorpio’s emotions are repressed, kept under cover. Again, secrets to be used another day. That said, be aware that these folks are clever, perceptive and always in the mix. Their ability to see into things can sometimes be a curse for Scorpions, however, since they can take an insignificant matter and turn it into a huge slight. Beware the Scorpion who feels crossed! These folks can turn vindictive in no time flat. Luckily, once Scorpions catch their breath, they will return to their usual determined and loyal (albeit strong-willed) ways. Finally, while Scorpions aren’t above some subtle manipulation to get what they want, they’d much rather take a scientific, even mystical path. The Scorpio-born are powerful and passionate, qualities which serve them well, as long as they don’t let them deteriorate into self-indulgence or compulsion. Scorpios love competition in both work and play, which is why they’ll air it out in sports and games. Extreme sports are right up the Scorpion’s alley, as is most anything which will test their mettle. They’ve got to have an adversary, since it makes the game that much more fun. The Scorpion’s colors? Powerful red and serious black. When it comes to love, though, Scorpions soften up a bit and are caring and devoted with their lovers, even if they do hold on a bit tight. Scorpions are also lusty in the extreme (how else?), so they need to be mindful of their reproductive organs. The great strength of the Scorpio-born is in their determination, passion and motivation. Scorpions don’t know the word quit, which is why they usually get the job done. A powerhouse? Like no other.

Scorpio Man in Relationship : Boyfriend
Apart from a snake or a hypnotist, a Scorpio man has the best chance of fixing his penetrating eyes upon the one he loves or lusts and capturing her. No matter how hard you resist if he gets it in head to seduce you, this man will hypnotize you. Like any insect, the Scorpio male has the ability to rattle and repel. You can meet him at the standard office party and find him offensive and unnerving, disagree with him about every subject under the sun, but he’ll have you, and there’s nothing you can do about it!
To him sex and love are the whole meaning of life and the answer to every emotion. His attraction to women is motivated by his obsession for finding the truth and often he falls prey to his own intentions by a touch too much promiscuity. The trouble is Scorpios actually need long-term and stable relationships. But the man is dangerous if you are on his hit-list. He’ll pursue you secretively at first. If you find you are the chosen one he can also take over your whole existence.
His jealousy is intense. He lives and breathes every emotion, and with it love. He’ll surprise you with spicy and secretly rendezvous. In bed he’ll be the connoisseur of all things sexual and emotional. He will want sex to be a symbolic esoteric experience that sometimes falls close to obsession.

But he has incredibly high standards and you must be spotless, almost virginal. The Scorpio male wants all or nothing and the longer your mystery is prolonged the more intense the turn-on he gets.
You have to be emotionally and mentally strong to have a relationship with this man. If you think you can handle him, can bear the shock when his eyes start to penetrate another victim’s heart across the room, beware! This man is powerful.
Scorpio Man in Love
The intensity and passion of Scorpios makes them unforgettable partners when it comes to love. They take their love affairs very seriously, which sometimes leads to jealousy. Their innate secrecy can also make it difficult for them to confront problems in a romantic relationship.
There is no mistaking it when Scorpios really fall for someone because they pull out all the stops. Once they are deeply involved in a relationship, they show just how passionate they can be. When love comes their way, they are convinced that this is the relationship that they have always been waiting for, and will invest in it all their energies. Scorpios are very suspicious, and can easily work themselves up into a state of jealousy if they imagine that their other half is being untruthful. They will soon gather up the evidence and challenge their loved one. This is when the volcanic Scorpio temper can emerge, often with very frightening results.
Renowned for being introverted and intense, Scorpios bury their deepest emotions well under the surface and positively relish their resulting mysterious image. They are very faithful and need the security of permanent relationships. If they are badly let down in a love affair, they may decide to play tit for tat.
They may be cool on the surface, but underneath Scorpios are intensely passionate, both physically and emotionally. When love is sweet, they are very loyal, but when things go wrong they may show a sting in their tail.
Scorpio Man Friendship
This powerful type has no capacity for a successful friendship. They are too violent, jealous, tyrannical and overbearing in all of their relationships. These qualities are the natural enemies of friendship, and with Scorpio natives friends fare just as badly as relatives, with the possible exception that friends do not have to “take it”, and they don‘t.
The Scorpio personality is interesting. It invites extremes of either love or hate, devotion or loathing. People usually feel something “strong” toward Scorpio natives, but the Scorpio person cannot maintain affections when the urge is toward devotion. Sooner or later a conflict arises that represents a difference of opinion, and then the Scorpio person destroys the relationship by an unreasonable exhibition, or an act of violence. Sometimes this character reveals depths of intrigue and complicated deceit that overwhelm and frighten other types by the very nature of their underhanded wickedness. Even those who love the native and would bear with him (or her) are unwilling to be drawn into Scorpio intrigue.
Scorpio Man in Career
The Scorpio temperament is entirely unfit for partnership unless other aspects in the birth figure modify the character. They are unreasonable, tyrannical, dogmatic, and so irascible that no worthwhile partner would care to endure so much for the doubtful possibility of business success under such circumstances.
In any position but one of supreme authority, the Scorpio person discloses qualities that hardly and active type could bear for constant and progressive association.
A modified Scorpio personality is very intelligent, thorough, dependable and shrewd. It has a fine grasp of any problem, can analyze a situation, and tell in advance the extent of the possibilities for success or failure. This in itself is a wonderful quality for partnership, but the Scorpio disposition offers so many other faults for double harness that their undoubted ability does not balance. Their passions are too intense, uncontrolled and furious for the exacting demands of everyday business.
Scorpio Man as a Husband
The Scorpio man makes one of the most difficult husbands to live with in peace and harmony. The only way that this can be accomplished is for the wife of a Scorpio man to be receptive to his every thought and follow his instructions with complete obedience. He is the typical “old fashioned lord of the manor ” and is just as tyrannical and overbearing in his home as he is in every other walk of life.
Many astrological warnings have been given against marriage for the Scorpio man with afflictions in his seventh house of marriage. He is considered too extreme in his seventh house of marriage. He is considered too extreme in his reactions to the love life. But the temperament is such that no matter how forewarned, these men will marry, and tragedy is too often the result.
For the less extreme types there are more chances of happiness. The Scorpio man himself is often very successful, and well able to support a wife and the large family he so desires. But his intensely personal passions, and the highly possessive attitude of his devotion is a strain on the most devoted family. In fact, no matter how much love and attention he receives, his nature is secretive and suspicious, and he will always suspect deceptive conditions working against him. These conditions are wholly imaginative, but he persists in inflaming himself with jealousy and dark inward resentments.
The depths of his affection for the wife and children are genuine indeed, but he cannot seem to learn to be more pliable. Such selfish love is bond to cheat itself as the unhappy Scorpio man makes his stubborn way through life.
Sexual excesses are often a part of this sign character. The desires are gross and unnatural, and demand satisfaction. As is the case with the women of the sign, Scorpio men have a strong moral side to the character. They suffer deeply for their indulgences, and make inward promises of temperance after the appetites have been satisfied.
