What To Know Before Getting Into A Relationship With A Scorpio

You can identify a Scorpio in the wild by their mysterious, stand-offish energy and general skepticism of the world. These fixed water signs are powerful, secretive, and don't shudder in the face of some of life's darker aspects (via CoStar Astrology). But if you've ever gotten close enough to know what's beneath the somewhat intimidating exterior of a Scorpio, you can confirm they are devoted, honest, loyal friends and lovers. They have great allure, and anyone who craves a real connection (or could do without the small talk) will be on cloud nine with Scorpio's ability to dive deep –- Scorpios Björk and Sylvia Plath, for example, are the pure embodiment of this energy. There's a lot to love about these passionate, fascinating star signs. There will truly be few dull moments with a Scorpio.


"Scorpios are prone to sudden stings, unexpected forceful change, and transformation, movement, and eruption," said astrologer Emma Toynbee in an interview with Well + Good. So, if you're considering getting into a relationship with a Scorpio, here's what you should know beforehand.

Scorpios are loyal companions

While Scorpios may be hard to read, there won't be any wishy-washy secret code to interpret when it comes to romance. Plainly put, you'll know if a Scorpio is into you. The Scorpio partner is seductive. They'll lift you up, defend you, boast about you, and quickly put out the fire of any ill word spoken about you. Scorpios are protective and fiercely devoted to the object of their desire. "They will go to the edge of the world for those they value," said Lumi Pelinku, an intuitive astrologer and transformation life coach, in an interview with Well + Good. "Their emotions run wild in the bedroom and this is where Scorpios truly feels most expressive," said Pelinku. "They can go from sensual to passionate and primal. They like to dominate, but wish nothing more than to please their lovers." Scorpios tend to be extremely faithful, even though they are apt to receive a lot of attention and admiration from others (it's not their fault they have such strong sex appeal!). But these advances will almost always be received as offensive by a Scorpio who is taken.


So, if quick and fierce attachment scares the daylights out of you, getting into a relationship with a Scorpio is likely not your best bet. On the other hand, if a partner who wants to hang out 24/7 (and essentially become one entity with you) sounds like heaven, you'll probably be pretty satisfied with a Scorpio lover.

Scorpios are prone to obsession

As you may have concluded by now, Scorpio's intense passion inevitably pours over into jealousy. Once they have you, they'll need consistent confirmation that they have all of you -– and that no one else does. They are imaginative and creative, weaving together fantastical images of the future you'll have at their side. And this isn't just talk. Chances are high that they will create this reality for you. Scorpios crave to know everything about their partner and won't be shy when prying at your deepest, darkest secrets. The best match for a Scorpio is someone who can hold boundaries with them. Though they might not like it at first, but they'll benefit from the structure. Letting go is a larger karmic lesson for Scorpios.


"As Pluto is their sign ruler, Scorpio's life purpose is to understand the path of surrender in order to experience peace in their existence," said Lumi Pelinku, an intuitive astrologer and transformation life coach, in an interview with Well + Good. "This planet teaches many to accept and embrace the concept of death, transformation, and rebirth. The ability to look deep within and experience liberation once they disconnect from the intensity, will bestow this level of grace and breakthroughs."
