Dating Your Scorpio Woman

"Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned," wrote William Congreve in his play, The Mourning Bride. I believe he was speaking of a Scorpio woman. When seeking revenge, she will wait patiently until her enemy or competition is at his weakest before she attacks. When people meet Miss Scorpio, they react in one of two ways. They either come closer to find out more about her, or they get as far away from her as possible.

She appears to act cold at times; however, the truth is she feels so deeply that she needs alone time to process what life is handing her. Her powerful emotions come from Scorpio's ruling astrological planet, Pluto, which represents life, death, and regeneration. This cycle describes, perfectly, a Scorpio woman preparing for the next phase of her life. Feeling so deeply contributes to the passionate temper of a Scorpio. The more immature Scorpios may prove to be very jealous and untrusting—two feelings that go hand-in-hand. However, although Miss Scorpio is labeled the wicked woman in comparison to women born under other Sun signs, her nasty behavior isn’t displayed very often, especially as she gets older. She is more often very generous and sweet. She has an incredible sense of intuition and will use it to her advantage when choosing friends and lovers. It’s just that Mars, her other ruling planet, inspires an aggressive temper that gets her into trouble.

Miss Scorpio loves deeply and intensely and requires an unconventional physical relationship. Just like Mr. Scorpio, she is the ice form of the water signs. She also belongs to the sign of extremes. Most of her opinions are black and white. She can be genuinely sweet, kindhearted, and generous. She can also rip you to shreds with a glaring deep, dark stare and two words.

Miss Scorpio likes to be with a man—a strong-willed man. Because she is naturally dominant, she finds relief in being with a man whom she trusts to take control of any situation. The challenge is exciting as well. With this woman, you want to choose your battles wisely. She appreciates a meaningful, passionate battle occasionally; otherwise she may become bored. She has seven symbols to evolve through, which means that she will be maturing as a Scorpio as she encounters obstacles. As she matures, you will find your Scorpio woman quite reserved and oozing confidence.

Once you have hooked Miss Scorpio, you will never find a love deeper than hers. She will fight and die for you and your children. She can be quite domestic, but only on her terms, and she must be appreciated. She makes a great wife, mom, and homemaker. Be well aware, Miss Scorpio will defend her family with all she has, like a mama Grizzly.

All Scorpios Are Not Alike

It is important to realize that each of us is an individual, created by God. We all have differences. Astrology helps to find the similarities we have. By studying our birth charts, we can find out more about our preferences, priorities, emotions, and flaws.

The birth chart is a picture of the sky at the exact time and place a person is born. When determining one's character traits, it's important to take into consideration the astrological planets, zodiac constellations, houses of the zodiac, and the aspects between them at one's time of birth.

While true we do not engage in a fight where circumstances are such that we would not win - no rational person does that, plus losing is not an option and we do not surrender - we also don't necessarily wait until an enemy is weak to attack. We don't attack the weak ever, we are above that, though when necessary we will educate them for their own good if they arent smart enough to stop. More like we will engage someone who attacks on our terms, not on theirs. And we will let them know what our terms are and what the outcome will be in order to give them a chance to be reasonable so we don't have to crush them. We don't want to have to do that, and they know that we don't want to have to do it just as sure as they know that we will do it completely if they go too far. Their choice. We defend effectively but rarely pick a fight.

I am a rising scorpio according to side real. Have had two long relationships and both had strong scorpio in their side real charts.

First one ended up in several betrayals. The next one ended up when she moved far away with our children.

Now I have met the first one and she regretted everything she had done. She called me as a perfect partner after 9 years of unsatisfying relationship of jealousy and fighting.

The another one just went together with a new man and she says that I am ruining her life and I am full of bullshit and falsehood. Now that is quite strange since I am a Buddhist and really trying to transmute my dark forces into light with the help of Buddhist teachings.

After 9 years, life finally gave my first ex a lesson. She found out that her boyfriend had cheated on her few times. I knew that some time life will give her a lesson and it would be unnecessary for me to carry resentment or hatred. You reap what you sow.

Now I am single and trying to pull my life back together. I will never again let my passion and optimism that comes from Moon in Pisces blind my eyes. The eternal search for love just keeps on going on. But as they say, true love is not out there somewhere but deep within our own sense of beingness. Perhaps I a Piscean woman would understand the depths of the mind and emotions of a Scorpio/Pisces man.

Iam a gemini and shes a scorpio. Things were awesome at first,ive never felt so loved or had so much fun. Then her derranged ex shows up again wanting the family thing back together. They have a daughter together and he uses that to get to her and knows that she will cave in . Said she had things to work on. Things with them are like stuff you see on Jerry Springer. I didn't understand but I gave her her space. Just waiting for her to see that you can't change someone in that way. I stay my distance because you can't make scorpios see what's really going on . I hope that she sees the light without getting hurt.

I completely understand, denisefenimore! I am a Scorpio woman with a Sag rising, also.

I'm a Scorpio woman in love with a Leo. He isn't usually the take charge guy you say I should be with (and it is annoying). I now understand why I get so turned on when he fixes something that is broke. When he installed the new furnace I had to really control myself from attacking him! lol I have Sagittarius rising and I slip that mask on towards the world, but inside you hit who I am!

Actually, Yubaba, Scarlett Johansson was born on the last day of Scorpio in 1984. She is officially labelled a Scorp, but she really is on the cusp and would have traits of both signs. Thank you so much for commenting.

Wait, why is Scarlett Johansson listed as a Scorpio? She's a Sagittarius!

As long as you don't betray her or her family, you probably won't see that side of her. She only acts when provoked. Loyalty is extremely important to her. Based on your actions, she will either be your best friend, or your worst nightmare. Many times the latter occurs because she is defending someone other than herself. (I am a Scorpio)

One of my dearest friends is a Scorpio, but I have never seen a vindictive side of her (at least not like mentioned here!). Wow - something to think about! Voted up!
