Scorpio's strengths are being courageous and resourceful. Their weaknesses are jealousy and secrecy.


Scorpios are passionate, courageous and assertive people. Because of this, they approach life with a fierce tenacity. They value honesty and will keep their secrets. They are known for their quiet demeanour and mysterious aura. They hate dishonesty.


Scorpios are the most sensual sign of the Zodiac. Because of their passionate nature, intimacy is very important to them. They start relationships with care in order to establish trust.



Scorpio: magnetic personality.

Scorpios have a highly magnetic personality. As their mascot is "the scorpion", they can be argumentative and elegant, but that is simply because they see all oppositions as a healthy change. Scorpio is the most misunderstood of all the zodiac signs. Although Scorpios appear self-controlled and calm, there is a raging intensity of emotional energy beneath the outward composure. They are like a volcano that can erupt at any moment. Part of the negative side of the Scorpio nature is the tendency to discard friends when they cease to be useful. Even if they get everything going for them, they are not satisfied. They probably take good care of their body, or at least talk about it.


Scorpios always have a complicated relationship; they can even be moody for no obvious reason. Scorpios have an amazing sense of humour and are direct and blunt, and seem to be experts at what they do.


They are self-critical, intensely focused and adoring, which translates into either total success or utter failure. Scorpios must strive for a life of action and not reaction. Scorpio dares to be simple and to deceive, and that is the first step in the direction of wisdom and victory. They are passionate in love and can hate with equal aggressiveness. The opinion of others hardly matters to them, for they know what they are. They have a very strong personality which makes people notice them as they pass by. They need to investigate the depth of their emotions and how to use them as a means of self-healing and helping others.

However, Scorpios are extremely emotional, and crave intimacy. They have a powerful presence and demanding personalities, and their penchant for mystery is what makes them one of the most interesting signs.


Scorpio Personality Traits

Scorpios are extremely deep and emotional people, and are intense in all the things they do. They are natural leaders and can be very serious; they are one of the most interesting signs because of their intensity, and there are some key Scorpio characteristics to look out for that make them stand out.

Positive Scorpio Traits

Scorpios are known for being tough-minded and biting, but they also have many positive qualities that make them great friends and successful people in general.




Determination is one of Scorpio's best known characteristics. When a Scorpio wants something, they go for it and don't stop. There is not much that can stop someone born in this sign once they have their mind set on something, and they have an unmatched focus when pursuing a goal.




There is no one better to have by your side during a time of trouble than a Scorpio. They run into danger without a second thought, and are always the first to volunteer for difficult tasks. Especially when it comes to helping family and friends, this sign's personality means they are the first to jump to the rescue.




If a Scorpio commits to someone or something, they stick to it. Their trust is hard to earn, but once they trust someone, they devote themselves completely to that person, and apply their classic determination to support their friends, family and partners.




Scorpios are honest to the core. They always tell the truth, no matter what, and they hate dishonesty in others. They also can't stand people who steal and cheat, as they are as honest with themselves as they are with others.




Scorpios are known to be fierce. They are adamant about achieving their goals, and they set them high. They do not see or set limits in their lives, and they do not let anyone tell them that something they want is not possible.

Negative Scorpio Traits

Like their symbol the scorpion, Scorpios have a tendency to stalk, gathering information and confidence until it is time to strike. Scorpios need to be aware of some of their tougher qualities, and so do those who have a Scorpio in their lives.




Scorpios feel everything intensely, even jealousy. They are quick to feel jealousy because they think that their determination and intelligence entitles them to get what they want. They find it difficult not to compare the achievements of others with their own, and think of everything as a competition.


✗ Secret


Scorpios never show their cards. They are incredibly honest, but they don't like to show any vulnerability, especially with people they are unsure of. They tend to keep their feelings to themselves, as well as their plans and ideas, so when it comes time to win the chess game of life, Scorpios have an advantage. However, this also makes them difficult to deal with as people.




When someone else gets something the Scorpio desires, we know they can be jealous. But on top of that, no one holds grudges like a Scorpio does. They take betrayals and setbacks seriously, and often find themselves resenting others for perceived slights.




Scorpios like to be in control. Their fierceness and intensity means they believe they know what is best for everyone. Scorpios also hate being controlled by others, and need control over all situations.


✗ Stubborn


Stubbornness can be a useful trait, as it means that Scorpios stand firm and stick to their principles. However, they are also slow to change their ways and ideas, and dislike compromise. They stick to what they think and like, and are not easily convinced to try new things.

Romantic relationships with Scorpio

Family relationships and friendships


Scorpios are notorious control freaks, so in a platonic relationship don't be surprised if they naturally try to take charge. They are loyal and connect with people on a deep emotional and intellectual level. Honesty is key with Scorpios in all types of relationships, and you can be sure that a Scorpio will show up when you need them to.

Professional relations


At work, the Scorpio personality lets nothing stand in its way. A Scorpio thrives on competition at work, and will go the extra mile based on their own principles and because they want to succeed. However, Scorpios are cunning and will not stop if anything or anyone gets in the way of their master plan.

Advice for a Scorpio

#1: No one likes to be controlled all the time. Learn to take control in areas where you can, such as at work, but focus on loosening the reins in your relationships. Open yourself to learning from others, rather than going your own way just for the sake of it.


#2: Don't be afraid of your own emotions. Expressing emotional vulnerability can be scary, but you are an emotionally intense person and communicating your feelings clearly with the people in your life will help you connect with them.


#3: Surround yourself with easy-going people who have a good sense of humour. We know your sense of humour can be a bit dark, yet very witty, so balance your sharp tongue with people who are relaxed, but still totally get you.


#4: Work on forgiveness. You really connect with others, and we know it hurts when someone causes you harm or distress. Learn to let go of small infractions. This will help you maintain relationships, and it will also teach you not to be so hard on yourself.


#5: Celebrate your successes, but don't brag. Depend on a few key people in your life to share your successes and keep them close. They should be people with whom you have practice and who don't feel competitive or resentful.

Tips for relating to a Scorpio

#1: To get along with a Scorpio personality, it is important to show that you are able to stand your ground. Scorpios respect people who stand up for themselves, and who can tell it like it is without holding anything back.


#2: It is also important to be honest with a Scorpio. Honesty is not only one of this sign's key characteristics, but also one of their most important values. Scorpios will not respond well or connect with someone in whom they sense dishonesty.


#3: The Scorpio in your life may appear harsh or critical, and this is an inevitable part of their personality. Learn to understand where this behaviour comes from; it most likely stems from their own insecurities about themselves or your relationship.


#4: Support Scorpio traits of ambition and determination. They will respect you if you support them, while also pursuing your own goals and ambitions. Scorpios can be naturally dominant, so showing that you are their equal will help you gain their respect.


#5: Helps keep Scorpio's ego in check. When allowed to run free, Scorpio's ego can be their biggest downfall. Be honest and direct with them, and remind them that they are just like the rest of us, but be careful, they are very sensitive people.

Summary: Scorpio Traits

Rest assured that if you are a Scorpio, the ambitious people who have come before you have already demonstrated how driven and dynamic Scorpios are.
