Scorpio is famous for being the most intense sign of the zodiac. A Scorpio woman in astrology has mysterious eyes and an intense gaze.

This Water sign likes to go all-in when they are interested in something (or someone) and the only thing as deep as their interest level is the place they keep their own secrets. They lock up their own true feelings in a labyrinth which they will only reveal to something they trust. The reason they have trouble sharing secrets and they are slow to trust others is because they themselves are often dodging being real with others in order to get their way.

Water signs are known to be a chameleon when it comes to matching the likes and dislikes of those around them. This is a way to understand the people around them but it can also be used to manipulate.

A Scorpio woman being a Water sign carries a lot of passion for just about everything she does. She often either loves or hates someone which means, it’s hard to be disliked by them if a friendship turns sour. They are intimidating to work with and unlikely to see a Scorpio sign like to take orders.

Scorpio is ruled by Mars and Pluto, so the themes of transformation, death, and rebirth are always carried in the essence of the Scorpio woman’s personality. Whether that means she likes to watch scary movies, or she has a collection of black leather boots and jackets that are a part of her mystique, you will see the god of war (Mars) and the god of the underworld (Pluto) alive in her spirit.

Although she may appear a bit dark or Gothic, it doesn’t mean her heart is cold. Scorpio women have some of the warmest and loyal hearts that are likely to dedicate their undying love for a lifetime. They are very spiritual and tend to care deeply about right and wrong.

Personality Characteristics of the Scorpio Woman

The fearless personality characteristics of a Scorpio woman make her achieve great success in her career. She is both relentless and unhampered by the need to keep up with appearances. Her strong sense of individuality, and lone-wolf mentality, make her a great leader and an intimidating boss. Other Scorpio woman traits that are hard to understand are her possessiveness that can often make other women feel a bit uncomfortable if they are around her man. She keeps her nose to the ground to sniff out potential threats or those who would compromise her den.

She is magnetic and highly attractive which can make her very presence distracting for those who she is not interested in. Many consider the Scorpio woman characteristics ideal for a mate because she has a strong libido and loves to be deeply committed. Scorpio woman personality traits that are challenging are their refusal to try to fit in as well as their habit of talking about taboo topics which can make others a bit uncomfortable.

Her ability to get what she wants can also mean she is one track-minded and not always going to check off the list of what a typical woman does around holidays or family events. She’s brilliant but having a genius in your home also means a few less significant things can fall by the wayside when she’s inventing or investigating the mysteries of life. She needs to be free to discover and explore her greatest fears as well as be accepted for her obsession with the human soul and its journey beyond the body.

The Scorpio Woman in Love

The characteristics of a Scorpio woman in love are unmistakable because she is not discreet about her feelings and will make it known when she is interested in someone.

A Scorpio relationship will make you feel seen and you will feel loved as they are not cold but very attentive and tuned into their partner’s feelings.

The signs a Scorpio woman is in love are that she is obsessed with someone, wants to know what they are doing, and asks about what other people’s intentions are to guard that person even when she isn’t around them. She will also want to be intimate with her partner daily as her love language is often physical touch.

If you’re getting tons of texts, heart emojis, and wedding ring hints, these are clear signs that a Scorpio woman likes you. Dating a Scorpio woman can often become serious because they don’t waste time with people they don’t believe they’re meant for. If you’re wondering how to make a Scorpio woman fall in love, know that they are not impressed with money but with honesty, intelligence, compassion, and vulnerability.
