Scorpios are amongst the most misunderstood zodiac signs. These mysterious water signs can be as aloof and cold as they are magnetic and charming. Sometimes ruthless, yet always deeply sensitive, they can be a lot to get your head around. Here are 10 things that make Scorpios unlike anyone else.
Scorpios Can Keep A Secret
Scorpios are so gifted at keeping secrets that it can sometimes be detrimental, even to themselves. Scorpios are known for being mysterious, and it’s largely because they keep their own secrets. Even they are sometimes surprised at what they learn about themselves! They’re constantly uncovering layers and keeping much of them private.
While some signs may embody the phrase “what you see is what you get”, with Scorpio, everything is far beneath the surface. Reading them isn’t easy … and that’s just the way they like it. This level of secrecy doesn’t stop with them, however. When you tell a Scorpio something in confidence, that is sacred to them. You can trust a Scorpio to take your secrets to their grave. They highly value truth and would see breaking your trust as a deep and unforgivable betrayal.
Scorpio Endurance Is Staggering
There’s being independent, and then there’s being a Scorpio, who would willingly bear the weight of the world on their shoulders alone. Sun Sign Scorpios prefer to think, act, and achieve on their own, and they can handle anything the world throws at them. In fact, even if you are close with a Scorpio, you might not know what’s going on with them. Something that would crush another sign, a Scorpio will suffer through and often resolve totally on their own. All that and sizzling, too! Scorpios are white hot and usually aren’t afraid to show it. This may be one of their most attractive traits, particularly in their relationships. They’ll fight to preserve a relationship if it means something to them, and their endurance could be set to Impress in other areas of the relationship too.
Scorpios could easily be described as “the strong and silent type”. Their perseverance and fortitude are just impressive. This doesn’t mean you should attempt to take advantage of them. Mysterious Scorpio may seem calm and cool on the surface, but underneath, those still waters run deep. They’re highly attuned to deception and will immediately catch on. Never try to play a player!
Scorpios Have Their Own Moral Code
Scorpios have a very distinct sense of right and wrong; however, it is often different from most people’s. Often intellectual, spiritual, and constantly learning, Scorpios see the world in a unique way, and act accordingly. They are master tacticians, who often develop unique systems for understanding the world around them. Scorpios are thinkers and often reject more easy, simple, or comforting ways of seeing the world. Never expect the everyday from a Scorpio.
Scorpios have a powerful need for freedom and to live according to their own standards. They don’t care if something has always been done this way. They’re going to want to know why, and they’ll want to see if the old way even works for them. This can make them fascinating and, at times, challenging partners, friends, and colleagues. At least, you’ll never, ever be bored with a Scorpio around! They’re constantly evaluating life by their own code and discarding any values that no longer resonate with them.
Scorpios Embody Intensity
If you look up “intensity”, you might as well find Scorpios staring back at you. Seriously. This secretive sign embodies intensity. It’s not that they feel everything deeply (although they do); it’s that they seek out risk and danger to feel that rush. This celestial sign thrives on destruction and transformation. They may get knocked down, but you’ll watch as they reinvent themselves.
Scorpios thrive in chaos where other star signs might struggle. It’s not that they enjoy conflict. They just know how to think their way to the other side of it. They see it as a problem to solve and immediately apply their intuition and creativity to the task. They won’t back down from a challenge- even when they should. Their biggest challenge may be to turn those intense feelings into effective communication with others. The truth is that they avoid vulnerability and would prefer to keep everything purely intellectual. Feelings are for burying, right? Wrong! If Scorpios can master their emotions the way they master everything else, they’ll see it pay off in relationships.
Scorpios Are Deeply Ambitious
Scorpios play their cards so close to their chests that you might forget for a moment that they are deeply, powerfully ambitious. They know how to play the long game, and these analytical thinkers have careful plans to get exactly what they want. It’s no wonder so many Scorpios end up successful. They won’t stop until they get what they want. It’s best to move out of their way and let them get on with it.
The flip side to this ambition is that Scorpio can, at times, be controlling. They are so determined to get what they want that they could trample your feelings in the process. While they’re able to think outside the box, they can tend to think that everyone around them should just get on board with their vision, no questions asked. Remember that they have big goals to reach, and they may need a gentle reminder that stepping on other people to get there won’t serve them well in the long run. A high-vibing Scorpio can be an inspiration. A low-vibing Scorpio can be a tyrant. They don’t do anything in half measures.
Scorpios Have Powerful Intuition
You probably wouldn’t be a bit surprised to see a Scorpio giving psychic readings. This astrological sign is incredibly clairvoyant. Even the ones that can’t or won’t tap into that gift have incredible intuition. They know on a deep level what they should do – even if they don’t always listen.
At the same time, they see everything in life as a game. According to the way they think, people are simply players. Scorpios are playing about 10 moves ahead of everyone else. They see changes coming before they arrive, and if they offer you advice, you can be sure that they saw something you haven’t even glimpsed yet. While that doesn’t mean you should always take their advice since Scorpios can be manipulative, it does mean you should consider it. They may not be able to predict the future, but if their spidey senses are tingling, do pay attention. Most of the time, Scorpios are likely to use this power for good rather than evil, but it’s always best to pay attention either way.
Scorpios Are Major Grudge Holders
The first rule of dealing with Scorpios is simple: Never. Cross. Them. Just don’t do it. Scorpios may not come at you with the intensity of a Fire sign or the grounded stubbornness of an Earth sign or even the mercurial changes of an Air sign. Water signs may seem to go with the flow, but keep in mind that Scorpio is a fixed water sign. They can hold a grudge like no other! It might stay submerged inside them, but when they’re ready to do something about it, you can bet that their reaction will be EPIC!
There’s a good reason for this. You know how Scorpios value honesty? Well, they see dishonesty and deception as the worst possible thing you could do. To them, it’s unforgivable. Even if they keep you in their life, you better believe you’re no longer in their inner circle. They just might keep you close to keep an eye on you and make sure you stay out of their way. Getting them to trust you again could feel like an impossible task. This brings you back to the initial rule: just don’t cross them ever for any reason if you know what’s good for you.
Scorpios Don’t Care What Anyone Thinks
To say Scorpios are independent and free-thinkers could be understating it. Scorpios really don’t give a flying fig about what anyone else thinks of them. Not their mother. Not their dog. Not their significant other. They simply don’t measure their value by anyone else’s measuring stick. It’s actually pretty impressive. This means they can stand up against a crowd and do the right thing without flinching because they have some pretty powerful integrity. They can also have truly healthy self-esteem. The fact that they never experience peer pressure is a good thing.
But there’s a “but”. On a low vibing day, this can mean that Scorpios are capable of manipulating anyone to get what they want and likely won’t bat an eyelash. If they think it serves them to do it, they just won’t consider anyone else. They could really corner the market on super-villainy if they cared to do so. Let’s be glad most of them are busy with other, more noble pursuits.
Scorpios Are Sensitive to Jealousy and Betrayal
You might have guessed that grudge-holding and trust-loving Scorpios are a little (read: A LOT) sensitive to both jealousy and betrayal. It’s true. It’s practically their hallmark. In relationships, Scorpios are easily jealous and may have to work to keep it in check. An overly flirty partner may not last in a relationship with Scorpio unless the flirting is reserved for them alone. Of course, they can be so jealous that a flirty nature isn’t even necessary to trigger it. Scorpios likely don’t want to hear about any of your exes, and it might be a good idea to clear your social media of any hints that there was anyone else before them. Does this seem a little overboard? That’s Scorpio in an intense nutshell.
Betrayal is a big problem for Scorpios too. Unfortunately, this intense and mysterious sign is sometimes mistaken for heartless when nothing could be further from the truth. They really feel their feelings in a big way, so if you say one thing and do something else, they’re going to feel betrayed. If you outright lie, they will never let you forget it. And if you cheat on them … well, you don’t even want to know. Just don’t do it. Scorpios certainly have hearts to break just like any other Zodiac sign, and they might not ever forgive you for breaking theirs.
Scorpios Will Be Loyal To The End
Scorpios apply their intensity to everything. That includes their relationships. They can make strong partners. It’s not easy for Scorpios to settle down. They want to make sure they pick the right person. They’re also ambitious when it comes to relationships. They know exactly what they want and won’t quit their search until they find it. If you earn this star sign’s love and respect, they will grant you the key to their kingdom. Of course, I’m talking about their loyalty.
Their loyalty is deeply coveted because not everyone will receive it. You’re probably not surprised that it’s hard to get to know a Scorpio. They don’t let everyone get close to them. They’re far more comfortable watching and waiting to make sure you are a quality person who can be let into their inner circle of trust. If you make it that far, they’ll extend that quiet, discreet, and intense loyalty to you. Your secrets are their secrets. Your enemies are their enemies. Your problems are their problems. You get the idea. They’ll cheer you on and have your back no matter what because that’s just who they are.
Scorpios may be hard to get to know, but they’re not that hard to understand. They just see a little further in life than we do, and they don’t mind patiently waiting to get everything they’ve ever wanted. It’s all a part of their master plan. Their intensity and drive can sometimes give this Scorpion a bad rap, but the truth is that their nature demands respect and honesty, and if you know what’s good for you, you’ll pony up and give it to them.
