Two Scorpio's in love on a beach.

It’s that time again, folks! The time when the Sun dances its way into the sign of mysterious, enigmatic, sensual Scorpio – the zodiac sign that may be the most misunderstood, and perhaps the most magnetic, as we all seem to be inextricably drawn to the intoxicating energy of a Scorpio.

Since we’re in the thick of the Scorpio season, it’s also the perfect time to learn more about this sign and the astrological compatibility between Scorpios and everyone else under the Sun. After all, Scorpio is the sign most associated with sensuality and even sex, and these themes might be on your mind more in the following weeks.

It’s important to remember when learning about astrological compatibility that while our Sun signs are very important in our natal charts, it certainly isn’t the only sign that contributes to a particular relationship’s health and happiness. For a truly detailed and accurate portrait of a relationship and its potential, it’s important to contact an experienced astrologer and request a relationship synastry chart or composite chart to learn more about your true destiny with someone else.

Now that we’ve gone over the fine print let’s dive into Scorpio traits – the things that make them so unique and enchanting – as well as Scorpio compatibility with other signs!

Scorpios are Water signs, meaning that they are ruled by this emotional, creative, intuitive element. They are deeply connected to their instincts, and they follow their heart in most situations rather than their head. In other words, if a Scorpio isn’t feeling it, they aren’t doing it either.

Scorpios are one of the most mysterious signs under the Sun, and they certainly enjoy their secrets. While Scorpio follows their heart, they also keep it close to their sleeve. You have to work to earn a Scorpio’s trust, but they’re loyal for life once you do.

Scorpio Love Matches & Relationship Compatibility

Certain signs seem to naturally match this sign’s vibration and energy when it comes to Scorpio compatibility. However, it’s important to remember that the Sun sign is the only sign considered here, and it’s also far from the only sign that matters for a compatible relationship.

So, if you’re crushing on a Scorpio, or you’re a Scorpio yourself, and you see a match on here that looks less-than-stellar, don’t give up hope! You may have Rising or Moon signs that make you a perfect match. That’s where an astrological advisor can help you out by creating a synastry chart!

The point is, if you’re vibrating on a positive, magnetic level with someone, don’t give up just because your Sun signs may not be a match.

Another thing that’s important when considering compatibility is astrological elements and their connection to the signs. Each sign is ruled by a certain element – Fire, Air, Water, and Earth. And signs ruled by the same element tend to get along right off the bat.

Let’s take a look at the most compatible and least compatible signs for entering into a romantic relationship with the mysterious and charming Scorpio.

The Best Love Matches for Scorpio

Scorpio Love Compatibility With Cancer

As a fellow Water sign, Cancer may be the most compatible Sun sign for Scorpio.

These signs share a depth of emotion and a knack for intuition that helps them understand each other on an intense level. The connection shared by their understanding of emotion is something that doesn’t necessarily translate to every other element – Earth signs are grounded and more focused on responsibility than feelings, Air signs tend to connect more deeply to their thoughts, and Fire signs are ruled by passion and impulse.

Cancers and Scorpios alike understand what it’s like to feel emotions on such a deep level that they feel embedded in your veins, part of the blueprint that makes you who you are.

These are two signs that acknowledge their need for emotional connection within a relationship. And the best part is that Cancer knows how to hold a grudge, so they don’t judge Scorpio’s selective refusal to let go of certain upsets.

That’s the one thing this pair will need to work on – letting things go and learning to forgive and forget. Even though they understand each other, each relationship is bound to have its ups and downs, including misunderstandings and arguments. If you both commit to finding a compromise and being more self-aware, this can be a match made in heaven.

Both Cancer and Scorpio are prone to bouts of moodiness. Cancer, the crab prefers to retreat into their shell, while the stinger of the scorpion’s tail is erect and ready to go to battle when they’re upset. Scorpio, you’ll need to learn to be gentle with sensitive Scorpio, or you may end up making them feel insecure and unwanted.

Scorpio Love Compatibility With Pisces

Pisces is the third and final Water sign of the zodiac. They’re the dreamers of the astrological calendar, with a wild imagination that can encourage them to keep their heads in the sparkling, glittering clouds of their unconscious minds. Pisces are wildly creative, and their dripping creativity will drip right onto Scorpio, encouraging them to embrace and expand their own artistic nature.

This couple would very likely enjoy a rather romantic union, filled with wandering evenings of exploration, creative nights of paints and music, and candlelit dinners with decadent wine. The sky is the limit with this pair because their combined imaginations encourage them to try new things.

Pisces isn’t afraid to share their feelings and affections with those they love – even more so than Scorpio. In fact, Pisces is a sign that is so open and honest about their feelings that it might feel like a bit much for a Scorpio. Pisces is understanding and empathetic, but they can get needy with those they love – which can be hard for some to handle.

If you both commit to open communication, setting boundaries, and talking openly about your needs, this can be a harmonious romantic relationship that you won’t soon forget.

Scorpio Love Compatibility With Capricorn

While they are an Earth sign, Capricorns are level-headed and patient, two traits that Scorpio appreciates on a cosmic level.

Scorpios possess a rather creative imagination that can lead to jealously and distrust. Simultaneously, Capricorn’s ability to stay calm and reasonable helps them wade through these periods of jealousy without losing their footing. Capricorn has a sense of self-confidence and security that allows them to thwart Scorpio’s fears while remaining loyal and faithful.

That being said, both Capricorn and Scorpio can be as stubborn as a bull. You both know how to take a problem and chew on it until there’s no flavor left, and you’ll both need to practice being able to back down for this relationship to run smoothly. But if you can learn to communicate through your issues, you’ll enjoy the harmonious vibrations of one another’s company.

The Worst Love Matches for Scorpio

Scorpio Love Compatibility With Gemini

Geminis are an Air sign, and as such, they spend a lot of time in their heads with their thoughts.

Scorpio is more aligned with their instincts and focused on taking action by following those instincts. While Scorpio has no problem making up their mind, Gemini can mull over a decision for days, weeks, even months before taking the plunge – which can drive Scorpio crazy. Gemini might take an hour to decide whether they’d rather have a smoothie or a milkshake, while Scorpio has already finished their lunch.

There’s a lack of common ground here that can lead to misunderstandings and the butting of heads. Gemini is a social butterfly, content to engage in superficial or surface conversations for the sake of socialization, while Scorpio wants to get to the bottom of things and really figure people out. Without a compatible Moon or Rising sign, this match may be fraught with tension.

Scorpio Love Compatibility With Leo

As a Fire sign, Leo is the center of attention in most situations.

They naturally gravitate towards the spotlight, which can grate on Scorpio’s enigmatic nerves. Scorpios are used to beguiling and intriguing those around them, making it more difficult to achieve when they’re fighting a Leo for the limelight. While these two might not necessarily have an outright battle for attention, this union may experience internalized resentment.

As Fixed signs, both Leo and Scorpio can be extremely stubborn.

They know what they want, and they know how they want to go about getting it – and those desires might not always match up for each person in this relationship. Furthermore, Leo has more of an outward desire for attention that Scorpio finds unnecessary or even trivial. You’ll both need to make an extra effort to understand where each of you is coming from – and respect the answer – for this union to flow smoothly.

Scorpio Love Compatibility With Libra

Libras are another Air sign that acts as one of the most prominent go-with-the-flow social butterflies of the zodiac.

Their carefree attitude may clash with Scorpio’s deep and intense feelings about right and wrong in the world around them. Scorpios are passionate about what they believe in, and they’re not afraid to stand up to those they disagree with.

Libras, on the other hand, are compromising and love to find common ground with anyone. They’re quick to forgive and far more concerned with negotiation than being right. This pair may disagree about how to handle perceived slights or disrespect coming from others.

Scorpio may also feel the urge to take advantage of Libra’s willingness to roll with the punches and find a compromise. You’ll need to discuss boundaries and dealbreakers openly for this union to have any success.

Scorpio Love Compatibility & the Rest of the Zodiac

Scorpio Love Compatibility with Aries

Aries are passionate and fiery, and they know who they are just as well as Scorpio does.

If you happen to be on the same page with things, this relationship can be stellar! But, if you both want different things in life, this might not be the best match. You’ll have to remind one another frequently that you’re a team and avoid being stubborn with each other. Compromise is the name of the game for this union.

Scorpio Love Compatibility with Taurus

Scorpio and Taurus are both sensual creatures, and the sexual tension may be palpable with these two.

You may seem to complement each other quite well and have fun getting things done together. Intimacy is certainly not lacking in this union. However, you’ll both need to be willing to be open, honest, and gentle with each other for this relationship to avoid tension or intense, negative emotions.

Scorpio Love Compatibility with Virgo

Virgo has a sense of logic and a keen mind that will initially draw Scorpio in – and the fact that you both pay attention to detail is a bonus.

Both Scorpio and Virgo probe into things to find information, diving deep into topics and subjects that interest them. But Scorpio may not realize that Virgo can be just as intense as they are. If you can both simmer down when tensions rise, this can be a loving, lively partnership.

Scorpio Love Compatibility with Scorpio

When one Scorpio attracts another, there’s a deep sense of comradery and understanding.

You’re like doppelgangers, each one as intense and curious as to the other. But if you’re not on the same evolutionary path, you may butt heads on a level that you’ve never before experienced in a relationship. There’s plenty of passion here, but even more jealousy in a union between two Scorpios.

You’ll need to create mental and emotional connections outside of the physical passion for this relationship to find its footing.

Scorpio Love Compatibility with Sagittarius

These two signs are naturally different in myriad ways, and there will need to be plenty of compromise and devotion on behalf of both of you for this relationship to blossom.

Sagittarius is like a wild horse, not easily tamed and bound to run free.

When a Sag feels tied down, they can get aggravated or grumpy, and Scorpio might feel like their natural independence is flighty or flaky. Sagittarius wants to go with the flow, while Scorpio wants to be the master of their reality. Adjusting to one another’s personalities is crucial for this relationship to flourish.

Scorpio Love Compatibility with Aquarius

Aquarius is a sign that possesses an intellectual quality that entices and delights Scorpio’s curiosity.

However, these two can clash, as each sign has persistent tendencies that can lead to conflict. Aquarius is not used to sharing their affections, as they prefer to keep their feelings to themselves when possible – which may frustrate the affectionate Scorpio. Scorpio will have to allow Aquarius’ actions speak louder than words for this union to unfold harmoniously.

Are You Ready for Love?

Scorpios are reliable, sensual, and full of insight that seems as though it was handed to them straight from the deep well of celestial, Universal wisdom. They act as magnets to anyone who enjoys deep, profound conversations, and their charming demeanor never fails to entertain. Their natural proclivity for sensuality makes them an excellent lover, while their emotional depth makes them a loving partner.

If you’re a Scorpio yourself, you’ll have to remember to watch out for those obsessions and bad habits that sometimes plague you in relationships. Start fresh and give a new partner the chance to shine, letting go of the heartaches of the past.

What matters more than Sun sign compatibility is the willingness on behalf of each partner to communicate openly, respect each other’s boundaries, and compromise.

If you’re not a Scorpio, but you find yourself enchanted and beguiled by one, you need to know that you’re in for a whirlwind of deep conversations, intense intimacy, and a lifetime of mystery.
