5 Characteristics of Scorpio, Zodiac, Astrology

Today begins the Scorpio season! It’s a beautiful time to be a Scorpio! Let’s celebrate what makes you special!

A Scorpio’s Personality

Scorpio Personality, Zodiac, Astrology, MysteriousScorpios, the most seductive and sensual of the zodiac sign, are filled with a great range of emotion. They are passionate, combative, obsessive and unfortunately at times self-destructive. Scorpios are incredibly intelligent human beings. They can be extremely profound at times, highly intuitive and sometimes a little manipulative.  This allows them to be great strategists as well.

You may find Scorpios are mysterious creatures. As much as they are passionate and almost larger than life, they can also be very secretive, especially when dealing with inner conflicts. They love to push themselves as far as they can go, without giving up their control. This makes it hard for them to admit defeat when it happens.  

This sign is an all or nothing sign. Once they are in a relationship, on a project or have a goal in mind, they are in it to win it. Scorpios may be overzealous (which is a good thing), but their temper is on the same level.  They will fight till the bitter end to get what they want, or they will go out swinging.  There is no middle ground for a Scorpio, it is just black or white. They either get what they want or they don’t.

A Scorpio in Love

Virgo in Love, Zodiac Characteristics

Scorpios were made to rule the bedroom and when two of them get together, their passion in the bedroom will keep them together forever. They are a beautiful combination. What is interesting with the Scorpio- Scorpio combination is that even though Scorpios are just more dominant in general, it is the Scorpio woman who will sometimes happily take the subordinate role. Scorpios are very possessive but are also incredibly sentimental. They will keep you on your toes!  It may not always be easy to love them.  Since they have a tendency to be self-critical and self-destructive at times, it is best to give them a bit of space, but let them know that you are always there for them.

If you are looking to seduce a Scorpio male, you need to be seductive and vampy. Don’t be trashy, but definitely amp up the sex appeal. Wear those high heels, garters and short skirts. Don’t be easy though, and make him work for it.  Make sure you are a strong-willed person, or else they will mistake you for submissive and walk all over you.  Scorpio males are extremely loyal, and generally, dominate in the relationship.

Scorpio women already have a seductive nature. She also appreciates a strong man. You best be determined, and strong-willed and fight for her if you are to have any chance to get with her.  If she smiles at you, you are golden, because she only smiles when she means it.  Once you have her, she will be 100% loyal to you and the life that you build together.

If you are wanting to break up with a Scorpio, I offer you two pieces of advice. The first is to be completely honest with them. That is your best bet. The second is to have a quick and easy exit strategy ready to go for after the breakup because Scorpios have a temper like no other!

What Interests a Scorpio?

Scorpio, Zodiac, Astrology, Interests, CompetitivenessScorpios especially love activities that require a bit of competitiveness.  They focus on games with strategy, or physical competitions such as racing (run, bike, drive etc). They also like to use their brains when it comes to activities, so a lot of Scorpios will choose scientific hobbies,  learn topics like archaeology and anthropology, or read novels with mystery and intrigue.

Scorpios and Their Colours

Virgo Colours, Zodiac Characteristics

When it comes to colours Scorpio’s top colour will be black. Black symbolizes elegance, impurity,  and mystery. This is great for their sex appeal.  Wearing black allows them to feel comfortable with speaking their mind and giving their opinions on topics. Black also gives Scorpios an impartial view on situations, allowing them to come up with the best possible outcome.

When a Scorpio is feeling daring (which is pretty much all the time), they will sometimes come out with a daring colour such as red, or hot pink. They choose colours like these to make their presence known, and trust me no one can forget a Scorpio.  Since Scorpios are generally energetic characters, the colour red, especially deep red, fits their personality well.  Like the colour black, red is a colour best used by ambitious people with a strong desire to achieve greatness. Wear those colours with pride!

Scorpios and Food

Scorpios Food, Hot Peppers, Zodiac, AstrologySince Scorpios are the most seductive sign out there, it does make sense that they would gravitate towards food that is an aphrodisiac. They may not need to arouse any more sexual desire since they ooze sex appeal, but they do still enjoy it. If you are cooking a meal for a Scorpio try going with something with ginseng, ginger, hot peppers, black pepper, oysters, avocado, or almonds. These are food they will quickly devour.

So if you know some Scorpios, or you are one yourself, go out and paint the town red! This is your time to go wild! Happy Birthday, Scorpios!

Amethyst is my favorite crystal. Check out this excerpt about the benefits of Amethyst for an upcoming post I wrote for a travel blog: 

“Amethyst is my all around go to stone for travel. It keeps you calm, helps you sleep, and also keeps you alert and sober in a strange place.

When you travel, you have to look at maps, navigate new cities and coordinate tour times. You also have to find new places to eat and new landscapes to explore. Amethyst promotes emotional centering and helps you stay focused. This crystal keeps you in control so you can enjoy all your trip has to offer. It can also enhance your memory.
