Scorpios are the most passionate, assertive and fiery of the zodiac. This zodiac sign is both determined and able to make decisions at ease, and loves to dig deep with intense research, usually until they find out the exact truth of the matter. They also make great leaders, always one to rally up the troops and dish out tasks in an organised an efficient manner. Below explains the most important attributes and personality traits of a Scorpio, who they are most compatible with for a romantic relationship, what careers are most suited for them, and how they interact with friends and family.

Surprisingly, considering their assertive nature, Scorpio is a water sign. They express their emotions freely, and love to experience everything and every emotion that the world has to offer. But they manifest these emotions much differently than the other two water signs of the zodiac calendar. To the outside world they look like they don’t have a care in the world, yet inside they are trying to stay afloat. They are great at keeping secrets, so you can talk to Scorpio-born individuals in complete confidence. And since they are ruled by Pluto, they are the masters of regeneration and transformation, constantly changing and reinventing themselves. You can recognise a Scorpio from their calm, cool and collected outward appearance, but there is always an air of mystery about them too. Because they understand the rules of the universe well, they are often misconceived as being too fierce or overbearing. This misconception is usually due to the fact that they hate individuals who are not honest, and can also be jealous or suspicious if this behaviour happens too often from the people they are closest to. Bravery is also a key feature of being a Scorpio, and their dedication and fearlessness makes them fantastic leaders. Scorpio-born individuals are wise beyond their years and this can sometimes manifest as them also looking older than they are. 

Scorpio and Love

This sign is the most sensual, passionate and sexual of all of the zodiac signs. Intimacy is hugely important to them in any romantic relationship, and this includes any kind of physical touch, not just sexual pleasures. Intelligence and honesty are two of the features they look for most in a partner, and if the conversations start becoming less lively and interesting, they become bored with their love life and will start to look elsewhere. A relationship is not an easy thing for a Scorpio to enter into, and it takes a while for them to warm up to and trust a potential partner. But, if you manage to hook a Scorpio, they are extremely faithful and loyal and will be dedicated to the end. But they can also be possessive, obsessive, and jealous. Beware of these potential features when you enter into a relationship with a Scorpio, but enjoy the times where they are intensely dedicated and respectful of you. 

Scorpio and Friends/Family

Despite their reputation, Scorpios make fantastic friends. They are dedicated, honest, and loyal, but they also have a fantastic sense of humour and are quick witted and highly intelligent. They love to be in the company of people who are funny and witty, but if you let them down, that is your only chance. They don’t stand for people who don’t keep their promises or go back on their word, and will leave if this ever happens. If you hurt them, it will hurt for a long time, and there will be nothing you can do to make them feel better. Being very emotional is a huge part of being a Scorpio. 

Scorpio and Career

Because of their leadership skills, Scorpios are amazing in management positions, helping to both solve and create. When a goal is set by them, it is set in stone, and they will do everything they can to achieve it. They take a scientific and analytic approach to everything they do, so that means they could also succeed in a lab or other scientific setting. They also like to put in a lot of hard work, and will sometimes work even into the early hours of the morning in order to finish a project or task. Business and pleasure never mix when you’re a Scorpio, You’ll never find them interacting with colleagues outside of work, yet they still will have close relationships inside of work in order to work well together as a team. Careers which suit a Scorpio include: physicist, researcher, detective, police work, or manager. They also are great at managing or creating their own businesses. 

Scorpios are intense yet loyal beings, always there for people they are closest too, and hard-working and determined in their professional life. Hopefully the above has given you a good understanding with this star sign, especially if you are a Scorpio yourself, or if you know one personally.
