Scorpio in love
Scorpio can be easily misunderstood as they are the eighth sign of the Zodiac and associated with death and birth, transformation, and mysticism.
They are governed by Mars meaning they can be impatient and snappy, a water sign making them sensitive if not moody, as well as fixed which means they tend to be dominant and stubborn.
Lustful and intense
The intensity of this sign’s romantic emotions can be scary at first, especially because of their desire to fully possess their lover. All of this together can make a Scorpio’s romantic goals confusing and unclear if not concerning. But once you know them and have seen through the haze of emotion and change you’ll find that Scorpio’s are passionate, lusty, and soulful.
Not to mention as the eighth sign they are also associated with sex and the body. They seek a physical connection, chemistry, and it’s not simply lust - it’s a need for Scorpio. They need to connect to their partner in this way because with all of those roiling, burning emotions they hold, verbal communication is not always easy.
And it’s not merely sex to them, it’s a true connection, a melding of the soul. They sometimes try to pick fights in order to get attention, they’re just so desperate for touch and love. They can be possessive, especially in the beginning of a relationship, but this will often carry on through the years, even if it’s only in small ways.
Scorpio expectations and compatibility
Their expectations: absolute loyalty, tenderness, demonstrative love
How to keep a Scorpio: cuddling, massages, physical flirtation (rub your leg against theirs beneath the table, play with their hair, kiss and nibble along their jaw), and obviously sex; do your best to be open to them and don’t judge them, especially when it’s obvious they’re trying to communicate but just can’t find the words; don’t be afraid of their intensity, if you need to try to calm it the was is through soothing touches and attention.
Compatibility: Taurus - Taurus can teach Scorpio to value others and themselves rather than being critical of themselves.
