Quick Summary

One of the most intense signs of the zodiac, Scorpios are ruled by a deep sense of emotion, which can make you incredibly empathic towards other people - always ready to listen, dig deeper and put yourself firmly in another set of shoes, but in other circumstances, it makes some perceive you as a little over-sensitive.

When it comes to beauty and style, your sensitivity translates into sensuality, with you favouring a sultry, boudoir existence. Sexy and alluring.

Scorpio Traits

Magnetic

The femme fatale of the zodiac, your magnetism can be dangerous. You live life with full intensity, leaving no stone unturned.

Empathic

The Scorpio modus operandi is to get to the bottom of everyone and everything. You’re never content with surface explanations because you’re inherently fascinated with the complexity and mystery of life.

Decadent

A dedication to decadence is one of your running themes. You want it all and then some. Scorps live for the thrill and the dare and are always a bit on the edge. If life starts to feel too complacent, you’ll purposely stir things up just for dramatic effect. And yet paradoxically, you resist change more than any other sign except Taurus.

Transformative

Transformation and shedding skin are daily activities for a Scorpio. You are constantly in metamorphosis. A born psychologist and detective by nature, you use your introspective skills wisely. Strangers will spill their deepest, darkest secrets to you after sliding into your DMs. You thrive during a crisis and are a pillar of strength when confronted by emergencies that would freak any other sign out completely. You have an innate understanding of the cyclic nature of things, despite your resistance to relinquishing your hardcore desires and attachments.

Scorpio Compatibility - Love and Sex:

Attached

Letting go is perhaps your greatest challenge in life. Extremely loyal by nature, when you bond you attach until death do you part—at least on an emotional level. No wonder it’s so hard for you to let go of the past. Your do-or-die approach to life also filters into your love life.

Cautious

You’re exceptionally slow to trust and even more cautious about giving all of yourself in complete surrender. You will put a potential partner through every test imaginable to see if they are worthy of your deeper affections. The more mysterious a person is, the stronger your intrigue. A potential partner has to burrow their way into your psyche first before given the exclusive privilege of sharing your bed.

Carnal

Scorpios are known for having the strongest desire nature in the zodiac—you’ll go to hell and back to get what you want. And that definitely includes lots and lots of sex – but you prefer quality over quantity.

Scorpio Beauty and Style:

Sultry

When it comes to beauty, Scorpios are legendary for their dark and sultry style. Classic cat-eye wings and sky-high heels are both likely elements of your everyday fashion arsenal. You alternate between subtle and very dramatic depending on your mood. Sometimes you prefer to remain cloaked and invisible in sunnies and a hoodie.

Daring

And then there are those nights where you dress to kill in super sexy ensembles that include lots of black leather. The eyes have it regardless of what you’re wearing. Your hypnotic gaze is forever your best accessory.
