Scorpios are represented by The Scorpion, based on Scorpius from Greek mythology, and they are associated with the element of water.
And in this complete guide, you are going to learn everything you need to know about the Scorpio personality traits.
What Is The Date Range For Scorpio?
Scorpios are born between October 23-November 21
What Is A Scorpios Personality?
They are sensual and seductive, magnetic and emotional. Considered “soulful”, Scorpios long for deep connections and even deeper conversations.
They tell it like it is, good or bad, and don’t have the patience for frivolities or icebreakers.
To other people, Scorpios are known to have a calm and cool exterior, and some might call them mysterious.
They can seem dark and standoffish, lacking the desire to be liked by everyone and chit-chat.
Their relationships are deep and real, and they are founded on truth and passion. They have intense, dramatic relationships, and as truth-seekers they often grow suspicious or jealous. Scorpios are incredibly intuitive as well as secretive, and to understand them you may need to see beyond the wall they put up.
They can take a lot of time to open up, but once they earn your trust they are extremely loyal.
That is until you do something to betray them. Winning back a Scorpio’s trust is nearly impossible.
So much of what you do can feel like a mystery to even yourself.
From pet peeves and character quirks to how you operate in relationships, astrology can help you better understand why you do what you do.
It can give you empathy and patience, allowing you to love yourself and others more deeply, from a place of understanding.
Knowing yourself can help you perform better in the workplace as well as make important career choices. It can also benefit romantic relationships and friendships.
Self-awareness touches every aspect of life with clarity and identification. Taking time to look inward can completely change your life.
Are Scorpios Jealous?
Mention that you are a Scorpio and some people will back away from you! Are Scorpios jealous?
Well, that’s certainly one negative emotion that they often suffer from.
However, just like Scorpios themselves, the answer to this question isn’t at all obvious or clear cut.
Of all the twelve astrological signs, Scorpio is the one that people most fear – and are most fascinated by. Scorpios have a hypnotic intensity about them that can draw you in, chew you up for breakfast and spit you out before you know what’s happening. They can also be highly spiritually evolved and capable or immense achievements, even in the face of huge adversity.
In fact, there are three distinct types of Scorpios. So, before you ask if your Scorpio is the jealous type, you need to identify which level of Scorpio this person is operating at. Let’s have a look at the three types of Scorpios you’ll meet:
Level 1- The Snake
This is the lowest level of Scorpio. These Scorpios operate at the lowest level of human nature with low chakra energies. At this level, Scorpios are negative, jealous and manipulative. They have a dark nature which is devious and self-serving. These Scorpios, if they don’t learn to control their base urges and destructive emotions, can be difficult to deal with. They can even have violent tendencies or hateful beliefs.
Level 2- Eagle Scorpios
Eagle Scorpios are easy to spot. In denial of their true Scorpio nature, they appear to be whiter than white. They wouldn’t dream of drinking vast quantities of alcohol, entertaining the idea of drug use, or indulging in illicit sexual encounters and can be incredibly judgemental of those that do. They are opinionated individuals who won’t hesitate to tell you how to live your life and point out your failings. These bland Scorpios are detached from their true nature.
Confused by who they are and their darker side, they struggle to keep their true emotions and urges in check – that is their continual dilemma. Eagle Scorpios would never admit to you that they feel jealous, yet the emotion may bubble up inside them nonetheless.
Level 3- Phoneix Scorpios
Phoenix Scorpios are the most evolved of this astrological sign.
The number associated with Phoenix Scorpios is 8, which represents the eternal circle of Heaven and Earth. In fact, Scorpio is the most energized of all the astrological signs and Phoenix Scorpios are a force to be reckoned with. These powerful individuals have the ability to deal with both sides of their nature.
They accept their true selves and can operate from both the shadow and the light, they really don’t have a preference which. Transcended Scorpios understand their emotions. They can identify any jealous thoughts and switch them off like a light.
Jealousy is a part of human nature that troubles most of us from time to time. At their worst, Level One Scorpios can be incredibly jealous, possessive and manipulative. At their best, Level Three Scorpios have learned how to recycle and transmute any jealous emotions that trouble them. Level Two Scorpios are the great pretenders. You’ll never hear them admit to anyone they feel jealous. But watch how they act, they can’t keep the mask up all the time and will inevitably give their true feelings away.
Are Scorpios Compatible With Other Scorpios?
Yes, Scorpios are compatible with other Scorpios, regardless of what type of Scorpio is involved.
One common denominator for all Scorpios is their high level of intensity.
When a Scorpio focusses on something, whether that be a person or a task, they won’t give up and their concentration is immense. They never do things by half and don’t expect anyone else to either. They just can’t stop until they get the result they want and two Scorpios together can be an indomitable force.
Scorpios feel comfortable with other energized individuals. As the most energized sign in the zodiac, it’s no surprise they are compatible with other Scorpios. Scorpios want to keep going when the rest of us are tired. They see giving up as weak and they’re just not comfortable with weakness of any kind.
Which Signs Do Not Get Along With Scorpios?
Scorpio energy is intense. They admire strength, determination and honesty and don’t like to be around superficial people. If you want to get on with a Scorpio, you’d better make your intentions clear and not try to pull the wool over their eyes. You won’t get away with it and your Scorpio will make a fast exit when they realise you’re not sincere – and that will occur with lightening speed.
Even though Scorpios can be manipulative, they don’t like that trait in other people. With their keen instincts and incredible focus, they’ll spot an attempted manipulation immediately and you won’t get a second chance with them.
Scorpios just don’t know when to stop. Sometimes that can be a good thing, but they can also take eating, drinking and drug use too far. Consider their sign, the scorpion. The scorpion is the only animal that will kill itself. You can also put a scorpion in an oven or encase it in a block of ice. Once it gets out, it will carry on unaffected by the extreme of heat or cold. Just like the scorpion, Scorpios thrive in extreme conditions and have huge levels of endurance. If you can’t compete, don’t even try to. You’re better off just taking a back seat and letting energized Scorpio get on with it.
Which Signs Get Along With Scorpios?
Scorpios fascinate other signs. People are either scared to be around them or gravitate towards them.
They like to be around people who they consider their equal: people who are energized and committed, people who can focus and overcome challenges. Having said that, they also enjoy being with those who will follow them and not question their decisions or actions.
There’s a fine line between showing a Scorpio that you are a worthy equal and coming across as a challenge. Make a Scorpio feel powerless or wrong and you won’t see them for dust.
Scorpio is a water sign. Water and Earth signs go well together, so you’ll find that Scorpios get on well with Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. Taurus is their opposite sign so they are particularly attracted to Taurean individuals. They also get on well with other Scorpios, although a power struggle of huge proportions could occur.
Are Scoprios Possessive?
Scorpio is generally considered to be the most possessive sign in the zodiac, but different types of Scorpios experience this destructive emotion in completely different ways. A level one Snake Scorpio may take possessiveness to the extreme, making it almost impossible to have a drama-free relationship with them.
A level two Eagle Scorpio will swear blind that they aren’t possessive at all, but watch for them checking up on you when they think you aren’t looking.
The most evolved Scorpios, the Phoenixes, will identify their own possessive emotions.
Then they’ll either eliminate them by recycling the energy or eliminate you from their lives so they don’t suffer from the negative feelings.
They will do whatever they believe is for the greater good of their soul’s evolution. Don’t expect to change their mind about that either. If they’ve decided to move on, they generally don’t second guess themselves.
In particular, people who have the planet Venus in Scorpio have problems with possessive feelings in relationships. To love, you have to be able to give freedom and this is something that is a real challenge for these people. Unless they work hard at controlling their possessive streak, they can scare off partners and friends with their demands and accusations.
Are Scorpios Loyal Friends?
Scorpios can make the most loyal friends you could ever wish for, or they could dismiss your attempts at friendship without a second thought. It depends on whether they value you or not.
If they’re on your team, you’ll never look back. They’ll support you and look after you with incredible intensity and commitment.
They feel fully responsible for those who they consider friends, but can be cold and completely uninterested in those they don’t like.
Most Scorpios don’t see any logic in pretending to like you and they’ll make their feelings very clear. Level two Eagle Scorpios are the exception to this, they might pretend to like you but test their friendship and you’ll uncover the truth.
One of Scorpios biggest challenges is that they want to be in control. Put them in a submissive position, or take the power from them, and they will just switch off and stare at you.
Their gaze is so intense, you can’t fail to notice it, whether it’s a dark, brooding stare or an icy blue one – there are Scorpios of both types! Scorpio wants to lead, they want to drive the show. Take that away from them and they simply don’t feel comfortable.
At their best, a level three Phoenix Scorpio has an incredible appetite for sensuality.
At their worst, a level one Snake Scorpio will just take what they want from people without considering their feelings. All Scorpios are powerful to some extent, but what they use that power for is down to their level of evolution. A low level consciousness Scorpio can be manipulative and hurtful but an evolved Scorpio is a true wisdom teacher.
You’ll find many Scorpios in positions of power, as that is where they feel they need to be. Many teachers, healers and doctors are highly evolved Scorpios but, take their power from them, and you may still feel their sting!
Interestingly, Elvis Presley was Scorpio rising. Known for his incredible sexual energy and hypnotic appeal, Presley was a hugely powerful person who could be very supportive of those who earned his trust. He was also known to take what he wanted from people and simply get rid of those who he felt were of no use or benefit to him.
Are Scorpios Attracted To Taurus?
Scorpios can be very attracted to Taurus as they are opposite zodiac signs. Taurus’s honestly and strength are appealing to a Scorpio. They are also both highly sensual signs. An evolved Scorpio is most at home with a partner who revels in sensuality.
Together they could spend hours simply pleasing each other – remember Scorpio has the most incredible focus and rarely gives up until the completion of any task!
For Scorpio to be attracted to any individual, that person must be sincere and committed. Scorpio won’t stand for any manipulation or unnecessary drama – unless they are making it themselves. They also tire of people they find boring or weak.
Scorpio can identify superficial people with unearthly speed and accuracy so, if you want to be with a Scorpio, make sure your intentions are clear and honest. Anything less and the Scorpio will soon see through any facade and eliminate you from his/her circle of trust.
Can Two Scorpios Be Friends?
Scorpio is the zodiac sign most devoted to their soul rather than their ego. They will destroy their own ego in pursuit of improving their soul. They understand that true power comes from facing the darkness and not running away from it.
An understanding of their darker side and an acceptance of their negative emotions gives Scorpios huge insight into themselves and others. An evolved Scorpio has mastered this power and has immense control of his/her emotions.
Two Scorpios can drive each other to achieve stratospheric success, or they can tear each other apart. It depends on the individuals and what level of Scorpio they are, Snake, Eagle or Phoenix. Scorpios working in partnership can be unbeatable.
Scorpios generally feel comfortable with other Scorpios as they appreciate others with a high level of energy. Their endurance is legendary! But, should an issue of who is really in control arise, sparks could fly that burn the friendship beyond redemption. If two Scorpios are involved in a power struggle, it’s advisable for the rest of us to keep our distance.

Astrology has its roots in ancient history and has been practiced for thousands of years as a way of understanding ourselves and others. The twelve signs of the Zodiac are depicted by using twelve constellations of the night sky.
Each of the twelve constellations represents a different range of dates in the year, so your zodiac depends on the day on which you were born. The zodiac signs are as follows:
- Aries: March 21-April 19
- Taurus: April 20-May 20
- Gemini: May 21-June 20
- Cancer: June 21-July 22

These dates are adjusted according to leap year. Every four years the cusp marker changes. This is why it’s important to have a professional astrologer help you identify what your sun sign is, especially if you’re born on the cusp.
