What are the Best Love Matches for Scorpio?

By Lady Saoirse

Scorpios dazzle us with their mysterious mannerisms, and intense emotions. They are hardworking, devoted to their friends and family, and very in touch with their emotions. We demystify Scorpio's tendencies and explore the best relationship zodiac matches for Scorpios.

Scorpios are dynamic, intense, emotional, hardworking people who are dead serious about sex and romance, and who don't forgive and forget easily. These people are well known for keeping their business to themselves so well, some consider them secretive or dishonest, while others consider them to be fascinating people whose mysterious ways are intriguing. At their best, they are passionate and devoted, at their worst, they can be vindictive or obsessive. What are the best and worst qualities of Scorpios, and who can make for the best Scorpio zodiac love mate? Read on to learn all about Scorpios and who are their best and worst lovers.

Understanding Scorpio Men and Women

Scorpios are born between October 23 and November 22. The Scorpio zodiac sign is named after the constellation Scorpius. There is a story that the mighty hunter, Orion bragged that he could kill all the animals in creation, but the goddess Gaia would not stand for that! She sent the scorpion to fight him. Orion fought hard, but in the end was killed when the scorpion stung him on the head. While Orion died as a result of his threats, he was still beloved, and was placed in the stars as a constellation, as was the scorpion.

Like the mighty creature who saved the animals from Orion, Scorpios are powerful people who won't back down. They are very in touch with their emotions, which can range from compassionate to enraged, and they have zero tolerance for being ignored or treated with no respect. It is unwise, even if you disagree with them, to dismiss their opinions or invalidate what they are saying. Scorpios are very devoted but will make you wish you had never met them if you betray them. They possess what is quite possibly the most powerful focus in the zodiac and have willpower worth being envious of. Once they set their minds to something, they will not stop until they have accomplished it.

Their confidence impresses most everybody who they meet, and they act like nothing scares them or is too much of a challenge. They will give you a piece of their mind without hesitation, and they also lead fearlessly. They tend to work very hard to learn to be the best they can be in their field or expertise, and they manage to make themselves so necessary on the job, the fact they can be short tempered at times won't matter. They somehow manage to be as necessary to their friends and loved ones, and if they love you, they will go out of their way to let you know it. They will also not hesitate to let people they do NOT love know it!

Like any signs, they have best and darker traits. On the bright side, Scorpios are driven people with unbreakable wills, they know how to commit for life to friendships and romances, and they are completely authentic people. On the darker side, they can be obsessive, jealous, and overly secretive.

The Bright Side of Scorpio

Scorpios really are wonderful people. Their unique personalities and single focused will as well as their dedication to who they love make Scorpios some of the most amazing people you could ever hope to meet.

Focus and Drive

One Scorpio had the misfortune of having to drop out of school at age sixteen, and when she was nearly thirty, she decided she wanted to finish school and get certifications in order to get better pay than what minimum wage jobs offered. She also wanted to lose all the weight she had gained from pregnancy. In the next two years, she got her GED, and enrolled in college, earning phlebotomy and medical billing and coding certifications. She was not happy with simply those accomplishments but decided to go to get her Nursing degree while working full time and raising her children. By the way, she lost every pound gained during pregnancy, and kept it off.

This is just one Scorpio's story about how she set her mind to goals and let nothing keep her from accomplishing them. Scorpios often find themselves at the top of their pay grade and in administration jobs because of their dedication to doing good work. Unlike some signs like Virgo, however, Scorpios know when to take time off work to spend with the most people in their lives, because they are, after all, very emotional people who care and love deeply.

Dedicated to Loved Ones

If a Scorpio cares about you, you are very lucky, because they will go out of their way to make sure you know it. Not only will they verbally express their feelings, but they will do things to show it as well. They will take your side, even if they feel you are not completely right, and they won't let anybody speak against you in their presence. Keep in mind, however, they expect the same amount of devotion, and if they feel you have failed to measure up, they will initially protest, informing you of what you failed to do, and they will give you an opportunity to make amends. Some Scorpios will stand by people who have betrayed them many times over simply because they love them so much, but that doesn't mean they are dumb enough to know you won't screw up again. Stay loyal to your loyal Scorpio and you will be blessed with their devotion for a long time.

Authentically Themselves

Scorpios may be secretive about some things, but one thing they will not keep hidden is their personality. Many Scorpios are drawn to forbidden things and topics like the occult, BDSM, or true murder shows. This is not because they are creepy, but because they don't let mainstream culture tell them what to think or do. They will explore things that they personally feel like exploring and they won't be too scared to look into things society looks down on. Scorpios also don't behave in ways they are told to unless they feel it is correct, so if your kid is a Scorpio, you better explain WHY you want them to do something instead of just yelling for them to obey if you don't want a major fight on your hands. It's not that they are trying to rebel or reject authority, it's that they are learning how to be leaders, and that means thinking for themselves which is a very good thing.

The Dark Side of Scorpio

Who would think such wonderful people could have a dark side? Well, you can't have it all, and nobody is perfect, not even the divine Scorpios!

He Loves Me Too Much!

Your Scorpio lover or friend may become possessive. They may try to control things you don't feel like they have the right to, and it can save a fight if you look at things from their point of view. They are not trying to behave as some crazed character from a fiction novel, they just freak out thinking that things are not the best they could be for you because they love you so much. So next time your Scorpio parent wants to know where you are every minute, remind them that you are away at college and have too much to do to have time to pick up the cell phone all of the five times they call during the day. Sweeten these words by reminding them you get your nose to the grindstone work ethic from them and arrange a time you can talk once or twice a week and catch up.

She's Jealous!

If you ask a Scorpio, they might flat out say they have never been jealous of any lover, but it still makes them mad as hell when they see you talking to their attractive coworker anyways. It's not that she is trying to be an obsessive girlfriend or wife, it's just that she loves you so much, the thought of somebody stealing you from her breaks her heart. Reassure her that the only reason you are nice to her good looking co worker is because he is so dumb, nobody else wants to talk to him, and make sure to tell her he said he loved those good black heels she just got. The longer you are together, the more she will trust your dedication, and she will appreciate being with somebody who is nice to her co-worker who has such good taste in shoes.

Basic Defense Techniques

Scorpios do certain defensive things to try and protect themselves that some may see as excessive, but they think it is necessary. One thing that makes them feel safe is having a lot of privacy. They may have their money in various bank accounts that they change pass codes for often. They won't tell business about their personal life to a lot of people, and they may keep their blinds and curtains closed at all times. They may be the coworker who talks little at lunch, if they eat lunch with you at all, and they may self-isolate from friends, at least sometimes to recharge their batteries. One way to get more time with them is to offer one on one time together doing something like watching the stars, going antiquing at a small shop, or doing something that won't stick them in the middle of large groups or strangers.

Scorpios and Love

They are perhaps the most magnetic zodiac sign when it comes to drawing lovers. Scorpios are sexy, attentive lovers who know how to make you feel attractive, and who are unapologetic about their own sensuality. They may be good in bed, but that doesn't mean they are going to be comfortable between the sheets with just anybody. Like with any other sign, they have their own best sexually compatible zodiac signs, and their worst matches.

Scorpio's Best Matches

Sexy Scorpios have some favorite signs to have as lovers for sure. They do best with Capricorns, Pisces, and Cancers.

Scorpio and Capricorn

You might not think Capricorns are sexually compatible zodiac signs for Scorpios, but you can think again. The Scorpio Capricorn love horoscope is a good one. Scorpio loves Capricorn for their reliability and devotion and Scorpio woman and Capricorn man love can be lifelong. For a Scorpio man and Capricorn woman, intense feelings help to solidify the bond, but Scorpio Capricorn sex creates amazing fireworks in the bedroom both signs live for. To have a lover who is devoted, trustworthy, and also good in bed makes Scorpios want to stick around for the long haul and this zodiac love combination can create a long-term relationship.

Scorpio and Pisces

Of the Scorpio zodiac matches, perhaps their best pairing is with a Pisces. Both Pisces and Scorpio people have delicate feelings, and a Pisces lover will put Scorpio first and also never deliberately do anything to hurt them. When Scorpios tempers flare, their Pisces lover seems to know just what to do and say to make them feel better, and a Pisces will forgive and move on from the worst of emotional outbursts, being the understanding empathetic people who they are. Don't forget, however, under that compassionate sensitive side is a wild lover ready to make Scorpio's sex life fun and lighthearted. Pisces people know just how to make Scorpios happy, and this pairing can be forever.

Scorpio and Cancer

Cancers make for a good Scorpio matching zodiac sign. They are as compassionate and understanding as Pisces people and will also put their Scorpio first. Cancerians love to build a home and fill it with things and people who they love. Cancers also love leaning on the strong shoulders of their Scorpios and will follow their lead willingly. They can also understand Scorpio's strong emotions, as their own are equally as strong, and this couple can live happily ever after.

Scorpio's Worst Matches

Believe it or not, some signs just don't go quite so well with Scorpios. Of these signs, it is easier for a Scorpio Libra match to succeed, but Leos and Taureans may have a more difficult time working things out with a Scorpio long term.

Scorpio and Libra

Scorpio Libra love compatibility depends on multiple things. Scorpio Libra love may be strong, but their willingness to compromise to work things out will decide if they can work things out or not. Scorpio woman Libra man love compatibility can be jeopardized if the Scorpio tries too hard to boss their Libra around because nobody is the boss of a Libra. Scorpio man Libra woman love can transcend all problems as long as neither of them fights too hard for dominance, but they work as a team, making decisions together and they both consider one another before making a commitment to do anything. Scorpio woman and Libra man love is also benefited by Librans keeping their observations and opinions tactful, so their Scorpio doesn't feel put on the defensive. It is difficult, but if they both really try, they can work things out, although there are other combinations that are more harmonious for both signs.

Scorpio and Taurus

Taurus and Scorpio love can be the war to end all wars. A Taurus and Scorpio match can end badly because they butt heads, fighting over who is in charge, neither wanting to share the title of “boss” although neither wants anybody else to be the boss of them. Taureans rule the roost at home, and while Scorpios don't mind being fussed over the way Tauruses do, they don't want anybody imposing any rules on them, and there will be rules kept in a Taurus ran household. Taurus and Scorpio love compatibility is not the best, and unless these two lovers can compromise, they are probably headed to a breakup.

Scorpio and Leo

While Leos love the ownership Scorpios take in a relationship, and they don't mind letting their Scorpio take the lead in some things, they can feel confined by Scorpio's expectations, and get tired of them. Leos want to be spoiled rotten by lovers, who they in turn also spoil rotten, but they don't like being told it's mandatory. A Scorpio who feels slighted will blow up, as will a Leo, but neither want to put up with a lover who does that. Leos also need a lover who has a thick skin and will tolerate off color humor and Scorpios will find this insensitive and harsh. This coupling doesn't always work out, and both signs may be better off finding lovers elsewhere.

Your Scorpio will be one of the most memorable individuals you are fortunate enough to have in your life. They bring intensity, authenticity, and unquestionable devotion. If you are lucky enough to love and be loved by a Scorpio, you may have a best friend or dedicated lover for life. Lucky you!
