Scorpios are known to be the sexual and passionate sign of the zodiac, and there is a reason for this. Scorpios are ruled by the 8th house of intimacy, sex, commitment, and emotional depth. Scorpio also rules the reproductive system and sexual organs of the body. Needless to say, the sex life of a Scorpio is one for the books. Their stamina is unmatched, and people’s experience with them in love is often unforgettable in many different ways.
The downside of Scorpio in a relationship is that they tend to get attached to people in a way that can be detrimental to them and those involved. Scorpio’s emotions run high, and if not regulated properly, they can be very emotionally impulsive, leading them to make decisions they later regret. Scorpios can be led by passion and power rather than positive intention, and moves through a lot of transformations in their love life, evolving and learning more about themselves through each experience.
When Scorpio is paired with someone who they are naturally compatible with, however, fewer challenges get in the way of the positive and harmonious traits they possess. If a Scorpio feels trust and safety in their relationship, you will get the best of them. Overall when it comes to a Scorpio in love, they are like sour patch kids. First, they're sour, then they’re sweet.
SCORPIO + ARIES
Scorpio and Aries have an immediate connection that is fueled by the fiery energy they both contain. These two come together through their passionate demeanor and they often hit it off right away. The challenges here come through during the relationship as with both of these signs being ruled by Mars, there can be a tendency for disagreements and aggressiveness in this relationship. The intimacy is great, but is it worth the fights and heated arguments? This pairing will have to work on being open to each other’s perspectives and feelings and watch out for power struggles between each other.
SCORPIO + TAURUS
This is a soulmate pairing. One of Scorpio’s best matches in life is a Taurus. Scorpio and Taurus are sister signs, meaning they are on the exact opposite sides of the zodiac wheel, and they’re like the yin and yang. Scorpio and Taurus give power couple energy, and they accomplish a lot together. What makes this relationship work is that they both tend to have the same goals and need for security within a partnership. There is a good give and take here, and Taurus is someone who brings out a more calm and dedicated Scorpio. This is a relationship that will go the distance.
SCORPIO + GEMINI
Scorpio and Gemini together is a bit of a chaotic pairing. There is a lack of similarities in the relationship to sustain this connection, but they do make life very interesting together. Gemini's energy is too curious for Scorpio’s “I need to know everything” personality. Scorpios in a relationship want to go deep and know everything about their partner. This type of vulnerability is what makes them feel safe in a relationship. Gemini starts to feel claustrophobic with this type of attention, and they would have to learn to understand what each other needs in order to make this relationship work.
SCORPIO + CANCER
This water sign duo is a match for the books. Scorpio and Cancer are a sweet couple and a couple that puts each other first. This is a pairing that has both love and friendship, and they also tend to have a good family base and support system around them. The intimacy and sexual chemistry between Scorpio and Cancer are off the charts, and this is an unforgettable connection. Being that this is a water-water duo, emotions will run high in this relationship, however, and things will get messy if there is not enough grounded energy and logic. This couple will need to be careful with the dramatics and emotional impulsivities, however, there is enough chemistry and love here to end up at the altar.
SCORPIO + LEO
Scorpio and Leo are not a pairing you see too often. Although there is passion, this is often a fling type of relationship where there is an immediate spark and connection, but one or other ghosts never speak again. You don’t see too many Scorpios and Leos together for years because this pairing tends to have a lot of ego struggles. What makes this work is if they both put their egos aside, and look at each other as human beings looking to connect and not someone looking to conquer the other. Scorpio and Leo are both fixed signs and it can be hard to compromise or cooperate with one another, as they tend to be stuck in their ways.
SCORPIO + VIRGO
This is another soulmate relationship. Scorpio and Virgos are some of the most similar zodiac signs, and their zodiac symbol is also very similar as well, showing the connection these two have. Scorpio and Virgo are both lovers and best friends. They get each other and are both highly intuitive individuals, giving this couple an ethereal type of energy together. Scorpio encourages self-empowerment and passion within Virgo, and Virgo shows Scorpio the importance of the mind, and of slowing down more to enjoy life. This is a couple that can have fun together out and about, and also be completely satisfied staying home and being in their own world. This is a very good match.
SCORPIO + LIBRA
Scorpio and Libra are right next to each other on the zodiac wheel, which is just about the only similarity they have. Scorpio and Libra are a couple that would have to put in the work in order to make the relationship last. Although they are both relationship-oriented signs, Scorpio tends to be more dominant in their approach than Libra. Libra wants to be swept off their feet and loves to romanticize their life. Scorpio loves the idea of this rom-com type of life, but when it comes to living in it, it leaves them feeling more uneasy than settled. The thing about Libra and Scorpio together is that Scorpio tends to feel like the rug is going to be pulled under the feet at any moment.
SCORPIO + SCORPIO
A Scorpio/Scorpio pairing is intense, intimate, and hot. This is a relationship where you wouldn’t expect these two to go together and be compatible, but they prove everyone wrong. The thing about dating your own sign is that there is an underlying energy of just getting each other in a way that no one else can. This is especially true for a Scorpio and Scorpio match as these two aren’t open books, so the fact that they can understand each other without having to dig too deep right away, makes them feel more safe and comfortable to pursue the relationship. This is a healing, passionate, and empowering couple.
SCORPIO + SAGITTARIUS
A Scorpio and Sagittarius couple is rare, and to be honest, a little underrated. Scorpio and Sagittarius together create a life of adventure, freedom, and hope. Sagittarius helps Scorpios get out of their emotions, and into the world. Scorpio shows Sagittarius that emotions aren’t scary or something to run away from and that the further you are willing to go within, the more treasures you can find and healing that can take place. Scorpio provides security in the relationship, while Sagittarius provides flexibility. If they are willing to work together and get to know each other better, this can work.
SCORPIO + CAPRICORN
Scorpio and Capricorn are the power couple of the zodiac. This relationship is all about evolving together and creating a successful and passionate life together. Scorpio meets their match when it comes to Capricorn, and they can’t get away with a lot of the stuff they can with other zodiac signs. Their driven and goal-oriented personalities are what makes this couple pair so well, and they tend to create a nice life and family life together. They will need to work on not being too hard on each other however and will need to remember to put romance and positive energy into the relationship as well.
SCORPIO + AQUARIUS
This is an eccentric couple. Scorpio and Aquarius tend to hit it off right away, and they just vibe. What makes them have this immediate connection is that both of these signs tend to be lone wolves in life. They can sense this energy from each other, and immediately understand that they come from the same place. When it comes to longevity in the relationship and if this relationship can last the tests of time, that is a different story. In order to make this relationship work, they will have to make sure they are growing together in life and that they aren’t moving in separate directions. This relationship tends to be better in theory than in reality.
SCORPIO + PISCES
Scorpio and Pisces make a highly emotional, intuitive, and compassionate relationship. They deeply understand each other and want to make the relationship work. They both tend to cater to each other’s feelings in this relationship and will go the distance to make sure the relationship is doing well. The work they are both willing to put in is what makes this relationship work, and they are both willing to do so because they genuinely love each other. With all water/water signs duos, however, they have to watch out for over-compromising and letting emotions rule everything, and if they are willing to take things slow and really examine the intentions of the relationship and what they both want as a couple, this can be a forever.
