Scorpio, the eighth sign of the zodiac, is the most misunderstood. When people hear “Scorpio”, they most often think of sex and death. Everything about Scorpio is a mystery, and this has led to people creating myths about Scorpio — some based in fact, and others pure fantasy. The truth is, Scorpio is a profoundly intuitive and spiritual Water sign with a stubborn streak and a deadly stinger. But contrary to popular belief, Scorpio doesn’t just go around stinging just anyone. They know their venom is precious, and they aren’t reactive to every single situation. Scorpio will wait for the perfect time to strike — if they decide to strike at all. You never know what Scorpio’s thinking.
Professionally, Scorpios succeed at any career that lets them call the shots from behind-the-scenes, such as being a private detective or investigator. They also thrive in the limelight, which is why many Scorpios like Drake become the voice of their generation. Everything about Scorpio is extreme and intense — they don’t do things in half-measures, so they seek to be wildly passionate about their job or else they may easily become complacent and irritated. Passion is at the core of who Scorpio is. Their life-long mission is to always keep the passion alive.
Socially, Scorpio are extremely cautious and guarded. They can count their true friends on one hand, and they would rather have a small amount of true OG’s rather than a huge amount of frenemies. Scorpio is very slow to trust, but if you’ve earned their trust, they’re the ultimate ride or die. Having a Scorpio on your side is the best feeling in the world, because they make you feel protected and powerful. But if you cross a Scorpio, your life completely turns upside down. You’ll regret ever hurting them.
Multiply the way a Scorpio is as a friend by 10 million and you may get a clue of who they are as lovers. They invest their all into relationships, which is why their standards are so high. But Scorpios also have trust issues, and can be extremely possessive and jealous in relationships. They love so deeply, and they want to feel that the loyalty and fidelity is reciprocated, or else they may build a wall around their heart that causes them to be extremely suspicious and even manipulative. When a Scorpio trusts their lover, they can merge with them on a deeply soulful, erotic, magical level. That is the side of Scorpio that’s rarely seen — the vulnerable, transparent, radiant side that comes out when they feel emotionally safe. Loving a Scorpio isn’t by any means easy, but boy is it worth it.
