Scorpio Personality Traits: Everything You Need To Know About the Zodiac Sign

The sign is known for its all-or-nothing attitude in love and relationships.

Scorpio season might be over, but for the astrology obsessed, it’s always a good time to learn about the notoriously mysterious zodiac sign. Belonging to those born between October 23 and November 21, Scorpio is often described to be passionate and ambitious, though it can also be venomous like the scorpion. In romantic relationships, the sign is known to be an intense lover that craves both emotional and physical intimacy. However, the distrusting Scorpio also tends to distance itself when it is misunderstood by others.

Here, Stephanie Whaley Vinitwatanakhun, founder of astrology dating app Oromoon, discusses what being a Scorpio says about your love, work and social life.

Scorpio is the eighth astrological sign in the zodiac.

Scorpio is the eighth astrological sign in the zodiac, and it is connected to the eighth house in modern astrology. Scorpio season is marked by mid-autumn, when the cool nights begin to consume the daylight as we near the winter solstice. Scorpio season alludes to deep, transformative, all-or-nothing behaviors and attitudes, while infusing a passionate intensity in the endeavors we embrace and the experiences we explore. Ruled by Scorpio and Pluto (and traditionally Mars), the eighth house represents a spiritual reflection of our shadows, the themes of death and rebirth, the reincarnation and transformations of self, and the archetype of the phoenix rising from the ashes. The themes of inheritance, either spiritual or tangible, are also examined in this transformative house of spiritual awakenings.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and it is a water sign.

Ruled by the transformative powerhouse that is Pluto, Scorpio represents the cool, deep waters where the mermaid or merman swims to the darkest depths of the ocean, acting upon their curiosity to lift the bedrock in hopes to discover the wonders that exist beneath. Fearless in their exploration of the unknown (as influenced by Mars), and questioning the existence of who and what is lurking behind the shadows, the Scorpio archetype is finally revealed as the private investigator of the zodiac. Their incredible intuition is accompanied with an intensity to match, pulling back the red velvet curtain to uncover any and all truths in existence. The exploration of what lies between shadow and soul becomes the sacred sanctuary in which Scorpios feel safest.

Scorpio Compatibility

Compatible signs include but are not limited to fellow water signs, Cancer and Pisces, for their love of exploring the depths of their healing through feeling. Scorpio also gets along with earth signs, Taurus (sister sign), Virgo and Capricorn, for their grounding and fostering of Scorpio’s brazen intensity, and for nurturing Scorpio’s desire for passionate, authentic connections.

Scorpio Characteristics

Personality Traits

Scorpio’s mantra is, “Will you acknowledge the truth of my experience, holding me as I unravel into the depths of each day?” These mysterious souls have the powerful ability to become immersed in the emotional embodiment of body, mind and soul. Scorpios are mystical explorers of the taboo, with passionate obsessions rooted in profound discoveries.

Strengths

As fixed water signs, Scorpios are incredibly observant beings with a high EQ. These creatures of the underworld thrive behind the scenes in secret, with a discreet tenacity to decipher hidden truths by way of intuition. Such discoveries serve as their competitive advantage, where self-preservation shields them from the visceral reaction brought upon by negative energies. Their patient devotion to self, the causes they are willing to crusade for, and the people they care deeply for is a passion so intense and unparalleled — to be loved by Scorpios is to feel understood and protected for the rest of your days.

Challenges

Their psychological prowess in observing and transforming hidden messages aids their inner transformations, even if it means digging deeper through the pain. Such turmoil and destruction allows for Scorpios to wholeheartedly understand the complexities of their healing journey as a gateway to further their emancipation from preconceived notions and grudges that once stifled their growth.

Trust is a delicate balance, where a Scorpio’s hesitation to indulge in such reliability stems from their intuitive understanding of the darkest capabilities and intentions of the human mind. With time and careful observation, trust is earned, allowing these once skeptical souls to release their inhibitions and emotional attachments, allowing their powers to unlock new interpersonal developments, where they are able to flourish and magnify their magnetic power with complete conviction.

Alas, when unhealthy obsessions, unfounded suspicions, or envy begins to influence our psyche, the spiritual teachings of Buddha reminds us to seek patience and compassion within ourselves, internalize our projections and intentions, and begin anew. Continuing to hold onto negative energies is akin to “grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the only one getting burned.”

Scorpio Relationships

Scorpios are intense lovers and fighters for what they believe in, protecting their loved ones with fierce loyalty and devotion. Acceptance in their curious ways of thinking and encouraging their thought provoking questions (often rooted in the taboo) enables Scorpios to thrive in their friendships and partnerships, allowing their mystery to unfold just so much as to give others a brief glimpse into their mystifying mind and to appreciate their beautiful madness.

Often misunderstood, if Scorpios are ridiculed or shamed for their unconventional beliefs, these mysterious souls may retreat even further into the shadows. An emotional layer of mistrust and suspicion may arise, resulting in dissociation from the collective goal, further isolating themselves from their peers and colleagues.

The intensity within this all-or-nothing attitude does not go unnoticed. We can avoid potential destructive energies by addressing our needs through honest communication with either ourselves or our confidants. Allowing our emotions to build and pile under the rug may erupt over time when we least expect it. And although a beautiful sight to behold as an expression of humanity’s sensibilities, practice sharing your deepest, darkest truths with your most trusted ally — or perhaps release any inhibitions through journaling your buried experiences and frustrations. In order to liberate ourselves from our darkest shadows, we must find solace in learning to let go.

Scorpio Predictions for 2021 and 2022

“I am not looking to escape my darkness, I am learning to love myself there.” — Rune Lazuli

Mysterious souls, dare to dream with a determination so pure and filled with a passion that never ceases to grow and heal itself through its many phases and transformations. Love seeps through in varied forms — we savor this moment to remind ourselves that spiritual discourse between mind and soul is just as effective as it is between you and others. With the Scorpio New Moon’s influence that took place on November 4, we’re instructed to let go of any and all manuals, and instead recreate brand new dreams for ourselves. Our transformations in the previous six months have been a tidal wave, but that is what it’s all about — a recycling of our deepest hopes and dreams and summoning the one suited for the now. When life gets heavy and thoughts seem to consume the mind, imagine yourself floating up above in another realm, where the air is crisp and you’re untouchable. Find comfort in the ancestral sky and remind yourself that the universe is not at home without you in it.
