Dynamic, loyal, and observant are some of the many positive traits that a scorpion possesses. Scorpions have a mysterious aura around them, which we will try to simplify for you in this AstrologyBay article.
In the zodiac calendar, Scorpio is the eighth sign, and people born under this sign are called Scorpios. Those born between the 22nd of October and the 21st of November fall under this sign. This sign is perhaps the most misunderstood among the zodiac signs. In a nutshell, Scorpios are deep, intense, mysterious, and intelligent beings, who seem very hard to understand. They make excellent friends, lovers, and spouses, if you try and understand them, and accept them for better or for worse. Being with a Scorpio requires a great level of patience and understanding, as Scorpios, when in an emotional upheaval, can tend to be cranky, irrational, and very insecure.
Scorpios are deeply emotional individuals. As far as their loved ones are concerned, Scorpios love deeply and passionately. A peculiarity of a Scorpio personality is that they hide their real motives and agendas from other people. They also have an inherent need to be in control, all the time. Another personality trait of a Scorpio is that they understand the human mind very well. They almost instantly know why a person is talking or acting in a particular way. Scorpios fear any kind of failure, whether personal or professional. They are independent people who are happy being on their own. They are not very social and are even quite capable of staying alone. They can work relentlessly, without a break in order to achieve what they want. Another important Scorpio personality trait is that they are extremely fierce and ruthless when it comes to rivals and competition. They have a sharp memory and thus, can win any argument by giving proper facts and details. Let’s delve a little deeper into understanding the personality of a Scorpio in the hopes of trying to decipher what’s behind their calm and collected mask.
When a Scorpio befriends someone, they automatically become possessive of that person, making him or her feel a little suffocated. What the friend fails to look at, is that the Scorpio is just showing that he/she cares and that he/she has the friend’s best interest in mind. Their loyalty in any relationship can be put to test and Scorpios always emerge victorious. They get jealous easily when attention is shifted from them or when they are neglected by their near and dear ones. They become relentless in striving to get back the attention and focus. This kind of possessiveness and protectiveness is not limited to only friendship, Scorpios are this way in every relationship.
Scorpios are very good children and parents. As children, Scorpios are hardworking and academically very sound. They study well and it reflects on their results. They are very mischievous, due to which they might land in small trouble. As parents, Scorpios are strict and like to maintain discipline. They mold their children into fabulous human beings by inculcating good habits in them. They encourage extracurricular activities and are always supportive of their child’s interests and hobbies. They might nag or try and control their child, but all in all, they are excellent parents. Scorpios are perfectionists by nature, making them a little overbearing and difficult to get along with. They want their family life to be perfect and they strive very hard to achieve their desired level of perfection.
Scorpios are excellent students, because of their thirst for knowledge. Being inquisitive in nature, Scorpios always want to be in the loop regarding every small happening around them. If they are not kept in the loop they start suspecting that their loved ones are conspiring against them. Scorpios are very suspicious in nature. They have a fascination for occult sciences, paranormal studies, conspiracies and unsolved mysteries. Their mind works on a completely different level as they are constantly trying to figure out their emotions and purpose in life. Being so much in control of their thoughts, they have better insight into the human mind making them intuitive and perceptive towards others’ emotions.
Dating a Scorpio man or woman is an experience of its own. This experience can either be absolutely thrilling or it can be terrifying. A relationship with a Scorpio is not a feat for the faint-hearted. They are extremes – when they are good, they are amazing, but when they are bad, they are very scary. They do everything with passion and that includes their relationships too. They are romantic, dramatic, and doting partners, but when their feelings are hurt, or when their trust is broken, they turn cold, bitter, rude, snappy and to an extent vengeful. They never take people for granted and expect the same treatment from others.
It is very difficult to attract a Scorpio man or woman to the point that they get tied down in a relationship with anyone. But when they do get into a relationship, it is all about commitment and absolute honesty. When Scorpios fall in love, they fall really hard. They channel all their feelings and bestow it on their partners. They are very attentive and observant towards their partner and their relationship. They are controlling and obsessive, and they sometimes fail to understand the concept of giving space to their partners. But where they fall short on space, they balance it with undying devotion and loyalty.
All in all, Scorpios are fantastic people to know, with a few flaws that can be dealt with in time. One must always remember to keep a Scorpio happy, and you will have the world at your feet. They are compatible with Pisceans, Cancerians, Virgos and Capricorns. Their ruling planet is Pluto, colors that suit them are dark red to maroon, and their lucky gemstone is Opal.
