Romancing the Scorpio: Astrological Compatibility for Scorpio

Posted on November 01, 2019

Welcome to the season of the Scorpio—that mysterious, enigmatic astrological sign that most of us find ourselves inexplicably drawn to. And as such, many of us may also be wondering what the world of astrological compatibility looks like for the Scorpio.

One thing to keep in mind when looking into any zodiac compatibility is that these methods generally focus on the Sun sign—a very important sign in the natal chart, but not at all the only sign to consider when exploring your potential compatibility with another person. For a truly in-depth look into the viability of a relationship from an astrological point of view, you’ll want to contact a professional astrologer and have them run a synastry report based on both of your natal charts.

With that in mind, it’s time to dive in and discover the most compatible signs for the charismatic Scorpio.

Scorpio Personality Traits

Before we explore Scorpio compatibility, it would be useful to take another look at the characteristics that make the Scorpio personality so unique.

Positive Scorpio aspects include:

  • Passionate
  • Tenacious
  • Intense
  • Strategic
  • Loyal
  • Mystical
  • Curious
  • Deep
  • Sensual
  • Charismatic
  • Creative

Negative Scorpio aspects include:

  • Jealous
  • Controlling
  • Secretive
  • Possessive
  • Resentful

Scorpio Love & Relationships Compatibility:

While any sign can technically vibe well with any other sign (especially depending on each partner’s surrounding chart), there are a few matches that tend to spark a passionate bonfire in the heart of the Scorpio.

Most Compatible Signs for Scorpio:


As a fellow Water sign, the Cancer may be the best match for the Scorpio due to the fact that these two will easily understand each other. Water signs have a deep connection to their emotional realm that doesn’t necessarily translate to every other element—Earth signs are more concerned with responsibility and duty, Fire signs are passionate and impulsive, and Air signs are deeply connected to their thoughts.

Cancers understand what it’s like to have emotions that exist so embedded within your veins, they acknowledge the need for emotional connection, and they sympathize with the Scorpio’s (selective) inability to let go of a grudge. While this pair will undoubtedly understand the emotional distresses or upsets of one another, it’s important to remain self-aware within this connection—there’s a good chance that both of you have a hard time forgiving. As long as communication remains open, this is an excellent match.


Pisces is another Water sign with a slightly dreamier demeanor—they like to keep their heads in the unicorn-soaked clouds of their own internal reality. A Pisces will excel at bringing out the creative forces of the Scorpio, helping them feel safe in the realm of self-expression. This pair would likely spend many romantic evenings exploring art and creative endeavors, or maybe even spending an evening at home enjoying each other’s company amidst some candlelight and a glass of wine.


Capricorns are patient and level-headed—an excellent match for the wild imagination that a Scorpio often possesses. Scorpios can be jealous by nature, but the cool and reserved nature of the Capricorn is confident and secure enough to thwart these fears while remaining devoted.

Least Compatible Signs for Scorpio:


Geminis are ruled by Air and spend a lot of time thinking; whereas the Scorpio is more active in decision-making, a Gemini might mull over their sandwich options for well over 45 minutes before landing on a BLT or a Turkey Club. Passionate Scorpios may feel frustrated or even overwhelmed by the amount of time it takes for a Gemini to get on board with a certain decision, action, or event.


Leos are the astrological Bell-of-the-Ball, which can easily grate on the equally enigmatic Scorpio’s nerves. It’s not that these two will necessarily battle for the attention of those around them, but internal resentment is possible within this union.


Like the Gemini, Libras are an Air sign—but their personality is so go-with-the-flow and love-your-neighbors that it may sometimes clash with a Scorpio’s sense of right and wrong. Scorpios are passionate about their feelings towards others and they aren’t afraid to speak up when they feel they’ve been slighted. On the other hand, Libras are forgiving and concerned with getting along with their peers—they’re much more likely to let a slight go unnoticed than the observant and somewhat righteous Scorpio. This pair may have disagreements about how others should handle discord or misunderstanding.

Romancing the Scorpio

What really matters in the end is how willing two people are to communicate with one another, regardless of their sign. But if you do find yourself lucky enough to catch the attention of the charismatic Scorpio, you should know that you’re in for a wonderful and mysterious trip on a river of depth and intrigue.
