    Scorpios season is upon us, which may have some of you wondering: What are Scorpios like? If you don’t have a Scorpio in your life, you’re missing out. This fixed water sign is passionate, fiery, and full of life (and death!).

    Though Scorpios are often misunderstood, they are energetic individuals who are bold and deeply caring. They may be more guarded upon first meeting someone new, but once you build a trusting relationship, they can be some of the truest, lifelong friends.

    Scorpio’s Personality:

    • Scorpio: October 23-November 22
    • Element: Water
    • Modality: Fixed
    • Symbol: Scorpion
    • Ruling planet: Pluto, traditionally Mars

    Though many people assume Scorpios' fiery nature means they are a fire sign, Scorpios are ruled by the element water. Water signs are known for being in tune with their emotions and the emotions of others, which makes Scorpios extremely sensitive people, though they tend to keep their deep emotions protected. Scorpios are known for being cool, calm, and collected- at least on the outside. They are very passionate and known to be great lovers. Scorpios also seem to have a cloud of mystery around them at all times, but once a Scorpio drops their defenses and lets you in, you discover their tender, affectionate side. As a fixed sign, Scorpios tend to value stability and routine. 

    Scorpio in Love

    Scorpios have a reputation for being passionate, sexual people on a deep level. They prefer to enter into long-term relationships over meaningless flings. They crave an emotional connection equal to a physical connection, which can create powerful romantic relationships. Scorpios look for a partner who is caring and equally as passionate as they are. Although they seek emotional intimacy, it can be difficult for Scorpios to open up right away. If you’re in a relationship with a Scorpio, you may need to encourage them to talk about their feelings to help them feel comfortable expressing themselves. Once a Scorpio opens up, they tend to fall in love quickly. Make sure to maintain open lines of communication to foster a healthy relationship- rather than feed their natural defensive tendencies.

    Scorpio as a Friend

    Much like with romantic partners, Scorpio friendships can also be intense. Fixed signs like Scorpio have a reputation for being fiercely loyal and this holds for Scorpio. If a Scorpio has opened up to you and accepted you into their life as a friend, they will have your back for life. Scorpios don’t like to be viewed as vulnerable, but they rely heavily on their closest friends to get them through tough times. It’s important to regularly check in and reassure your Scorpio friend that you are there to talk if they need to. 

    Scorpio and Career

    Jobs that tend to require a level of in-depth research or analysis are best suited for Scorpios. They are known for being dedicated, driven workers and they like to dive into a topic and understand it fully, which is why many Scorpios end up becoming researchers, engineers, or market analysts. Because Scorpio is ruled by the eighth house of finance, they also excel at money-related positions like financial advisors. Scorpios’ openness to emotions and ability to understand the emotions of others also makes them great psychiatrists and therapists. Scorpios have psychic tenderness that could also make them prime examples of people with less conventional jobs like tarot card readers.
