This is how Scorpio gets along with others, based only on their Sun signs. These are compatibility interpretations for all 12 possible combinations with Scorpio.

Yes, this is a limited and incomplete way to determine compatibility. But, Sun-sign compatibility is still the base for overall harmony in a relationship. We explained this in one of our synastry lessons where we said that it’s best to start with compatible Sun-sign elements.

The rule of thumb is this: yin and yang do not see eye to eye. Yin goes with yin, and yang goes with yang. While relationships between yin and yang can succeed, they require more work. The earth and water zodiac signs are yin. The fire and air zodiac signs are yang.

Scorpio and Aries Scorpio and Aries

A relationship between Scorpio and Aries will immediately reveal itself as complicated. The best common ground where these two can understand each other is in the physically intimate arena. But, they are very different both in the way of thinking and in the way of feeling. Scorpio wants total control of the relationship and its partner, but Aries will be unwilling to surrender it. An occasional relationship works best between them.

Scorpio and Taurus Scorpio and Taurus

When Scorpio and Taurus come together, the passion, sensuality and eroticism will be extraordinarily wonderful. But in everyday life, certain situations can cause speed bumps for this relationship. Scorpio is too controlling. Taurus will not bear the emotional stings that Scorpio will surely give. For this relationship to work, Scorpio must respect Taurus as they are.

Scorpio and Gemini Scorpio and Gemini

If Scorpio and Gemini come together for a relationship of mutual intimate pleasure and nothing else, then it can turn out to be wonderful for both of you. But as soon as you want to go further and build a relationship, you will have to go through a steep path together if you want it to succeed. Scorpio’s jealousy and explosions will shatter the possibility of Gemini staying by its side.

Scorpio and Cancer Scorpio and Cancer

A relationship between Scorpio and Cancer can be highly satisfying, if Cancer is able to let Scorpio take the reins. Cancer should not worry about its safety: Scorpio will be there to give them everything they need. In turn, Cancer will provide for Scorpio unlimited love and pleasure. In such a relationship, Scorpio is less aggressive than usual.

Scorpio and Leo Scorpio and Leo

It is very, very difficult for Scorpio and Leo to stay together in a love relationship. Maybe, they are okay for an occasional hookup, but they are not so successful in long term stability. For Leo to complement Scorpio, Leo must leave aside its most pronounced features: authoritative voice, decisiveness, independence, and control. Scorpio will never allow those qualities in its companion.

Scorpio and Virgo Scorpio and Virgo

A relationship between Scorpio and Virgo can be very good. Scorpio will feel satisfied with its beloved Virgo, since Virgo will recognize Scorpio’s successes and will not be as critical as with other signs. Virgo, thanks to its brilliant analytical ability, will know how to handle Scorpio’s outbursts and jealously in an appropriate way.

Scorpio and Libra Scorpio and Libra

A relationship between Scorpio and Libra can be good and stable. Scorpio must keep its possessive and jealous outbursts in check. Scorpio can provide for Libra an assurance of safety, something that Libra lacks, since Libra always lives in doubt and in search of a better balance.

Scorpio and Scorpio Scorpio and Scorpio

In order for two Scorpios to have a steady relationship, they will have to work at it on a daily basis. Scorpios are explosive, jealous and controlling. They should learn to keep those qualities under control so as not to throw away their relationship. Both Scorpios will understand each other perfectly on the physically intimate plane. They will maintain a passionate but overly fiery relationship.

Scorpio and Sagittarius Scorpio and Sagittarius

In the beginning, Scorpio and Sagittarius will enjoy their relationship to the fullest: adventures, sensuality, passion and fun. But if Scorpio and Sagittarius want to settle down together, they will have to go step by step to resolve the conflicts that result from their big clash: Scorpio’s possessiveness and jealousy will clash with Sagittarius’s need for freedom and expansion.

Scorpio and Capricorn Scorpio and Capricorn

Scorpio and Capricorn can make an appropriate match. Scorpio’s intuition combines with the depth with which Capricorn analyzes situations, and they will have many great moments discovering things they never knew about themselves and the world around them. They should be careful not to isolate themselves from the world in an extreme way.

Scorpio and Aquarius Scorpio and Aquarius

A relationship between Scorpio and Aquarius is possible, but will demand great tolerance on the part of both members. Scorpio is too rigid and structured to understand the need for freedom and movement that drives Aquarius. If Scorpio does not soften its demands, Aquarius will close up or decide to end the relationship.

Scorpio and Pisces Scorpio and Pisces

Scorpio and Pisces make an excellent relationship in which they both feel understood and emotionally contained. Both Pisces and Scorpio give priority to the sentimental and spiritual aspects of life, in which they understand each other perfectly. Pisces’s sweetness will weaken the explosive impulses of Scorpio.

Scorpio in Love and Passion

For most Scorpios, a satisfying love life is of great importance. They need to share their most intimate feelings. Their great sexual attraction allows them to find partners very easily.

When they choose someone, they demand total dedication, they do not accept “no” for an answer and in the face of rejection they discover their most obsessive side.

Making love is the deepest form of expression, as well as an essential ingredient in every relationship for Scorpio. They like to have fun with their partner and maintain an active social life, but without proper sexual exchange the union is doomed to failure.

They are great lovers, and often manage to free their partner from any inhibitions.

However, those around them must have great psychological resistance to counteract their continual mood swings. Those who manage to do so will be rewarded with a wealth of experience that is difficult to match.

Scorpio in Marriage

Scorpios have a hard time getting married. Many need to experience everything and are used to having several relationships at once. However, once married they are unlikely to be unfaithful. They become loyal and loving spouses, always willing to support their partner.

When they feel insecure, they suffer fits of jealousy and take some time to regain confidence in the other person.

They do not hesitate to put all their financial, physical and emotional resources at the disposal of their partner, and to fight hard to preserve their union. Over the years, the bonds they establish become increasingly strong.

Scorpio wives are ambitious and intelligent, with the necessary energy to reconcile their family and professional obligations.

Scorpio husbands are strong and loyal, although sometimes they go through long periods of silence.

  1. I think this is very shallow. The words that are prominent are “controlling” and “jealousy”. In my personal experience, jealousy was never an issue for me, except that Taurus has proved to be the jealous ones. Generally Cancers have been the worst for me; I prefer someone I can respect and although conversations were often flowing, relationships with them were demanding – their jealousy, over-sensitivity and neediness was a turn-off. Libras are okay, Aquarius (1) was great, Taurus is easy to love but they are not faithful. Yes, Capricorns have worked out. Leos I am just not attracted to. Virgos are hot and they are so easy to relate to, but they don’t return the attraction. I think I scare them off. Sag is good. Well so far this sounds somewhat simplified as well – just my personal experience.

  2. Why is it that Scorpio has to change for an Aquarius, but Aquarius doesn’t have to put an effort into changing their ways of repressing their emotions and being inconsistent? This is a DELETED and toxic report of how a healthy relationship should work.

      Woah woah

    • As an Aquarius, I worked hard all 7 years of the relationship with Scorpio to adapt and make it work. I practiced daily to learn new behaviors and ways of just living life so we could continue our relationship and I changed so much about me for Scorpio. The only reason I put forth such effort was to make us work cuz I had commited. I was ready to have Scorpio forever to the end as my one and only and i was led to believe that scorpio had the same definition of the word “commitment” as I had.
      I succeeded in changing many things about myself to improve the dynamics of our relationship and was left alone, abandoned, betrayed and in complete and utter shock when Scorpio told me after 7 years that we weren’t getting along so it was over and then Scorpio drove off into the sunset and never looked back and never gave me an explanation for the choice or actions that was made. Refused to speak to me after that. I find it amusing you interpret the compatibility report to mean that aquarius does not have to adapt or change in the relationship but the scorpio is the one that needs to. That’s exactly it. Aquarius is capable if stable enough and will undergo immense change for the sake of love as long as the commitment is serious and mutual. Scorpio is too busy putting 100% into everything else except for the relationship. And no way will scorpio ever admit to having any flaw or dysfunction that needs attention and work. 0% was put into us by scorpio. One thing a scorpio needs to learn is Humility. That is a word scorpio doesn’t know the meaning of. And actually believes it has something to do with being able to take a joke. And notice for once the progress and change that one has made for the sake of the relationship. It goes virtually unnoticed. Ur too busy focusing on the negative that it makes u blind to everything else
