The Personality Traits of a Scorpio
Scorpios tend to be very passionate and assertive, they are determined to succeed and will stick with a task until they believe that it is truly complete. Scorpios are also strong leaders, always aware of the situation around them and highly resourceful when it comes to problem solving.
As a Water sign, Scorpios are in touch with emotions and while they are hugely important to Scorpios, they express emotions differently to the way in which other Water signs do, less obviously and often truly subtly. As such, Scorpios are often considered very calm and collected people, but this hides a fierce core.
As mentioned, Scorpios like to see a job through to the end and they can do this with unwavering focus and dedication. They are not remotely flaky people and in general, they are highly dependable people for who it is important that they keep their word and fulfil their responsibilities. Furthermore, Scorpios are not afraid to face a challenge head on, and if they perceive danger to themselves or their loved ones then they will not hesitate to confront it. This is partly due to the influence of Mars, which gives Scorpios a heroic side that thrives when challenged.
With this comes true loyalty and devotion. While a Scorpio may be slow to commit, once they do so they will remain faithful until the end. If a Scorpio devotes himself or herself to someone then they will stick by them for life, unless that person betrays their trust. If that happens, then there is a risk of unleashing an aggressive temper.
Scorpios are often very blunt people, which may come across as abrasive to some, but it is built upon honesty. Therefore, if a Scorpio says that they feel a certain way or they pay someone a compliment, then it means that they should be believed. Scorpios are not in the least bit pretentious and what you see is truly what you get. In fact, Scorpios will often automatically stay away from anything that they perceive to be superficial or inauthentic, and they will only spend time with people who they feel to be genuine.
One should never underestimate a Scorpio; they are highly intelligent people who notice things that others overlook. Scorpios are adapt at seeing through lies and it is very difficult to keep a secret from them, as they are always determined to find out the truth.
Many people find that there is something magnetic about the Scorpio personality, they easily attract others and have no problem making friends wherever they go. Furthermore, Scorpios are known for their ability to truly understand what motivates people, which makes them into considerate friends and excellent partners, who are often able to anticipate exactly what others need.
One of the reasons for this is that Scorpios are truly in touch with their emotions and feel things very deeply. For that reason, they seek out real connections with others and have little time for the superficial. Scorpios will respect those who are true to themselves and do not try to hide their intentions or motivations.
However, Scorpios are also prone to insecurity and jealousy. If they see their partner paying attention to other people then they are likely to feel threatened, and this may cause them to act out in self-defence. Furthermore, this can develop into trust issues that poison their relationships, both friendly and romantic. It also takes a long time for a Scorpio to trust someone enough to open up. They will often hide how they truly feel as they fear being hurt if they are too open or honest. As a result, it can take a long time for people to connect with a Scorpio and to discover their true feelings. Just like the animal that symbolises them, they can have a hard outer shell.
Furthermore, if a Scorpio’s trust is broken and they feel like they have been threatened, then they quickly become aggressive and hostile. They too have a sting in their tail, and it is always best to avoid getting on a Scorpio’s bad side, as you will likely see a cold, resentful, and bitter side of their personality. Furthermore, Scorpios are more than capable of holding a grudge for life and never forgetting or forgiving.
Scorpios need to be aware of their tendency to become obsessive; it is both a gift and a curse. It means that Scorpios are excellent at mastering skills or completing tasks, but it also means that Scorpios can struggle to let things go and can weigh themselves down with things that are simply not worth the effort. Furthermore, when obsessed, Scorpios can become pushy if something blocks their path. They are truly passionate beings who will stop at nothing to get to what they want or achieve their dreams. As a result, to outsiders then can seem too assertive, overbearing and pushy. However, as long as Scorpios are aware of this trait, then they can use it to their advantage.
Scorpios tend to view the world in black or white; there is very little room for grey in their outlook. This is sometimes reflected in their mood. They can go from passionate, energetic, and enthusiastic, to moody and withdrawn. When in a negative place, Scorpios like to retreat from the world and be left along to process their thoughts and emotions.
Furthermore, this sense of black and white can extend to their judgement of others. Scorpios are very quick to form opinions on others, often making up their mind within a few seconds of meeting someone, and it is very hard to change their minds. Furthermore, their judgements are often extreme; they will deem someone worthy of their attention, or not at all.
As a result, Scorpios need to go through life with a higher level of self-awareness than others may need. A Scorpio can be impressively focused, driven, and achieve great things, but they also have to be wary of being too quick to judge and not flexible enough.
How Scorpios Treat Love and Relationships
Scorpios are the most sensual of all zodiac signs; they are passionate people for whom intimacy is hugely important. A Scorpio will seek an intelligent and honest partner and once they have fallen in love, they will remain absolutely dedicated and faithful. However, Scorpios are slow to enter into relationships as it takes them time to build trust and respect for their partners.
With fiery Mars and destructive Pluto ruling Scorpios, it is no surprise that they are passionate once in a relationship. They love romance and will never do anything half-heartedly. Of course, they can also be stubborn and obstinate, and this can result in huge fights and conflicts, which will require a great deal of patience from their partners.
Furthermore, Scorpios have a tendency to manipulate. They are adept at using body language and subconscious cues to get their partners to agree to whatever it is that they want. Prior to a relationship, Scorpios will love the thrill of the chase, even while taking their time about making up their own minds.
It is important to remember that Scorpios are always hiding a lot of emotions underneath their surface, and when they do finally open up, they hope that it will be a connection for life. If a Scorpio has let his or her guard down, then it means that they are truly committed to a relationship.
Scorpios have a tendency to be attracted to Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) as they speak to their innate passion. However, while Fire signs are full of intense energy, Scorpios are built on a foundation of emotion. This means that if a Scorpio becomes angry then they are likely to remain so, while a Fire sign is capable of letting it go in just a few seconds. There are a lot of surface similarities between Scorpios and Fire signs, but the two will often struggle to communicate effectively with each other. This can lead to mixed messages, intense arguments, and eventual heartbreak. While it is not impossible for a Scorpio and a Fire sign to have a successful relationship, it is important that each is aware of how the other works. Scorpios will need to step back and let somethings go while Fire signs will need to learn that emotions are not always on display but are usually present.
Scorpios may have more success with a Cancer. Cancers are passionate and in tune with their feelings, meaning that they can form an incredible connection with a Scorpio, especially as they are likely to have an innate understanding of one another. An Aquarius may also be a suitable match as they are highly pragmatic and will be a calming influence on a Scorpio’s stronger emotions. Similarly, Taurus’ are highly grounded Earth signs who refuse to be drawn into any drama, which will help them build a strong partnership with Scorpios.
Scorpios’ Approach to Career and Money
Scorpios are intense workers who will always be happy in a leadership role and are prepared to fully commit to whatever task they are given. However, they are bad at office politics and have no interest in playing games while at work.
It is not unusual to find a Scorpio working late into the night or early in the morning, long before anyone else has arrived at the office. This is not because they are not good team workers, but because they become truly passionate about their work and want to give it their all. That said, many Scorpios would rather avoid teamwork than run the risk of having to work with someone who they perceive to have a lesser work ethic or lesser capabilities.
Many Scorpios are extremely intelligent and fantastic at multitasking, which means they are often the driving force behind new ideas. They are prepared to commit and see a project through until its end. They thrive when they are left to get on with things in their own way and will become very frustrated if they feel that someone is continually looking over their shoulder.
In a leadership role, Scorpios can be very demanding and have high expectations of those under them. However, they are often respected by employees as they are fair and do not have unrealistic expectations. They are good at spotting talent and getting people to produce their best work.
Scorpios are often surprised by their struggles with money. On the one hand, they are intelligent hard working people who make money easily. On the other hand, they also love to spend money on luxury. As a result, Scorpios can become frustrated as they battle between using their money responsibly and using it for pleasure. Very often Scorpios will become jealous of what others have, and they need to learn to channel that into a positive drive. Scorpios are incredibly capable people, so if they can find the self-discipline, they can ensure that they have no financial worries at all and have funds left over with which to have fun.
Scorpios want to achieve perfection with everything that they do and they will not accept a half-hearted effort. As a result, Scorpios can find themselves hugely frustrated when told by a higher up that a job is complete and that they should move on to something else. Furthermore, Scorpios need space to be creative in their work; if they spend all day doing administrative tasks then they will not be happy.
How Scorpios Respond to Friends and Family
With an abundance of emotional energy, Scorpios have the capability of being the most loyal and trustworthy friends imaginable. However, they can come across as distant and cold at first, as it takes them time to build trust. In a group context, Scorpios will often thrive, able to make everybody like them, regardless of how they feel about those surrounding them.
Scorpios love having new experiences with friends, going exploring and living unique moments. They are also happy to take risks, which can result in them leading friends into risky situations without meaning to. At the same time, they are dedicated to their inner circle, so will defend them to the best of their abilities at all times.
Many people will turn to Scorpios for advice, as they are able to be emotionally analytical and get a good read on situations. Scorpios are also excellent people to have on board when embarking on a complicated project or trip. Anything that seems remotely intriguing is likely to have a Scorpio hooked and they are sure to want to join in.
However, Scorpios are not known for filtering their thoughts and will always give a direct and honest answer. This means that people always know where they stand with a Scorpio, but some may find them abrasive, to direct, and simply rude. On the other hand, Scorpios are excellent at keeping life interesting, always looking to try something new. They are the most loyal of friends, and they are excellent at inspiring others to push their own limits and discover what they can truly achieve.
Scorpios can be very demanding on their families, which comes from a deep attachment that scan seem too intense to others. Family is hugely important to Scorpios and they are likely to want to settle down and build one of their own. Scorpio women tend to need extremely reliable partners while Scorpio men will look for someone capable of taming them. In regards to children, Scorpios will protect their offspring like a lion defending its cub. They will want the best for their children and will work extremely hard to give them every possible opportunity.
There have been a number of truly famous Scorpios. Discover some of them below and just what it is that makes them a Scorpio.
Born 12 November 1980, the Canadian born actor and musician Ryan Gosling is very well known for doing things the Scorpio way. Perhaps because of his early years spent as a child star on the Mickey Mouse Club, he has since forged a career out of doing things his way with complete self-belief and refusing to bow to pressure from others. Gosling once said, “There is this idea in Hollywood where the unspoken rule is 'Do two for them and one for yourself. I’ve never really found that to be true for me. I've gotten more opportunities out of working on things I believed in than I ever did on things that weren't special to me.”
Leonardo Di Caprio
Born 11 November 1974, the actor Leonardo Di Caprio needs no introduction. He is a well-known workaholic who pushes himself to excel in every role that he takes on, and it is this need he has to always be his best that truly marks him out as a Scorpio. In an interview he once said, “I really hate relaxing. I've done three movies in a row, worked for two years straight, and to me, idle time is the devil's workshop. I like to focus on something.”
Born 25 October 1984, the singer Katy Perry has had a few massive hits, such as I Kissed A Girl and California Gurls. In true Scorpio style, Perry has been known to have heated disagreements with her fellow musicians, and in a very public way. Speaking about Perry, Taylor Swift once said, “We were talking about how we’ve had miscommunications with people in the past, not even specifically with each other. She’s like, ‘I’m a Scorpio. Scorpios just strike when they feel threatened.”
Born 24 October1986, the hip-hop artist Drake is known to be combative, driven and he even released an album in 2018 that was called Scorpion, which was widely understood to be a direct reference to his star sign. Drake does not like being wronged and he has very public feuds with many other hip-hop stars such as Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar and Common. Speaking about his combative nature Drake once said, “I'm actually a very honest person, and sometimes I end up like, 'Man, I said too much.' It's hard for me not to tell the truth when you ask me.”
Born 26 October 1947, the former First Lady and first female presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has lived in the public eye for decades and never tried to run away and hide. She has been devotedly loyal to her husband and will always try to do what she thinks is right, in true Scorpio style. Speaking once she said, “People can judge me for what I've done. And I think when somebody's out in the public eye, that's what they do. So I'm fully comfortable with who I am, what I stand for, and what I've always stood for.”
Born 26 October 1981, Guy Sebastian, the former Australian Idol winner and coach on The Voice Australia is a classic Scorpio. While on The X-Factor he was quick to praise fellow judges such as Boy George, Kelly Rowland and Delta Goodrem. However, he was also happy to criticise Iggy Azalea, who he felt lacked respect for the cast and crew, “Iggy wouldn't rock up. And when she did, she'd just roll her eyes,” he said. “I hated it. I really struggled that year.”
