Scorpio Man and Scorpio Woman Compatibility

The topic of Scorpio man and Scorpio woman compatibility has been on my mind for quite some time. Though I am not a huge believer of astrological compatibility, I always seem to be drawn to few particular zodiac signs.

For the record, I am a Scorpio male. It is said that the best match for a Scorpio man is a Pisces, Cancer, Capricorn or Virgo. Interestingly, I seem to be drawn to Scorpios and Virgos more often. In recent times especially, I seem to be surrounded by more Scorpio people. Some of my closest friends are Scorpio women.

I have always wondered how the compatibility is between a Scorpio man and a Scorpio woman, not only in terms of romantic relationships, but also in terms of friendship. In that context, I present to you, Scorpio man and Scorpio woman compatibility.

Before I go into details about this compatibility, I think it makes sense to briefly touch upon both people’s characteristics.

Scorpio Man Characteristics

Silent, calm exterior with deep emotions, mysterious, intense, passionate and vengeful may be some of the words that may immediately come to mind when describing a Scorpio male. These characteristics do aptly describe a Scorpio guy. He is a highly intelligent as well as an emotional person. He is strong and powerful, and may appear stubborn most times. When it comes to friendship and love, a Scorpio man is very selective. He rarely trusts anyone completely and has high standards. He may be very social and may have a lot of acquaintances, but the people in his inner circle may be counted on one hand.

A Scorpio man can be your best friend or worst enemy. If you are in his good books, he will go the extra mile to help you. If he truly loves someone, he can sacrifice himself for their sake. But if you step on his wrong foot, he can bring down hell upon you. After all he is known for his infamous stinger and vengeance. He loves passionately and hates passionately. In love, he rarely does the chasing as he simply attracts women. However, if he truly loves someone, he is more than willing to do all the chasing and can go all the way to have that person.

Scorpio Woman

A Scorpio woman has many traits similar to that of a Scorpio man. She may not be always beautiful in the traditional sense, but she is charming, mysterious, confident and attractive, which can make any man fall for her. Love her or hate her but you just cannot ignore her. A Scorpio woman has always a strong presence in the room. She is strong-willed and sometimes may appear stubborn. She may be calm or smiling on the outside, but she has a volcano of emotions erupting inside.

When it comes to friendship and love, she too is similar to a Scorpio man. She chooses her friends carefully. If she loves you, she will stand and fight for you. But if you cross her, she will give you a cold stare as if you never existed. In love, a Scorpio woman sometimes tends to attract weak men due to her strong character. However, she is not the person who settles down for someone weak. Similar to a Scorpio man, she is a person who looks for someone who is powerful.


What would happen if you left two spies in a room? Naturally, they will start exploring each other carefully guarding their own secrets. Both Scorpio man and woman are highly secretive. They are also known as the spies of the zodiac. Alternatively, there may also be an instant attraction between them as there is no one else who can understand a Scorpio better than another one. They can become instant friends even while guarding their dearest secrets.

Once they have trusted each other completely, it creates a life-long bond. There is always a mutual admiration as well as respect for each other. If they are in complete love with each other, they can sacrifice themselves for the other. They can also become addicted to each other, hence leaving little room for jealousy.

There are a lot of similarities between a Scorpio male and a female. This means that similarities exist in their negative traits as well. A Scorpio-Scorpio friendship or relationship is most times filled with power struggle as either of them is rarely willing to relinquish their power. The relationship is also full of sparks and emotional drama. The only thing that could kill this beautiful relationship is their jealous streak, lack of trust and lack of communication. For the Scorpio man and Scorpio woman compatibility to be perfect, this relationship must be based on complete trust and open communication.

Well.. If you think that he is the guy and it is not too late, you may as well as tell him what you feel about him :)

I am pisces/scorp moon, guy I have been (seeing?..) is scorp/cancer moon. I probably come off way more as a scorp in the emotion dept. He is obviously crazy about me but makes no attempt to talk about or further the relationship, or get know me closer. He is probably scared, or waiting for me to ask for it. I refuse to chase any man who does not fully acknowledge how lucky they are to have my attention. I am also taurus rising so very stubborn on this. Such is this dance. I am so close to walking away from it completely. His loss. Afraid if I bring it up to define this relationship, that he is just going to get scared and say he wants nothing serious, even tho his actions scream otherwise. Should I walk away or verbalize it? Any insight is appreciated.

yeah there's a cut off date, November 22, if you look up on astrotheme, half those born on that date are scorpio suns 29 degrees. and half are sag sun zero degrees, on the cusp. i thought it was a generational thing but then i looked at November 22 born Scorpio Jamie Lee Curtis, born in the 50s to one who was born 22nd in the 80s, and some scattered are sag. it really depends. It doesn't matter because sidereal and vedic says anyone born 3rd decans are scorpio suns. 1st decans get libra suns, strangely. It really is weird how some astrologers will stick to vedic.

Vincent Moore: Rightly said.. Most times, being a Scorpio has worked against me, especially when it comes to relationships. I think we are just that we can't get into or out of a relationship easily. We are just too deep and want that depth in all our relationships. I am one guy who also attracts Virgo women and Scorpio women (but yeah, my relationship with Scorpio women have always ended up in only friendships). I just hope this time, I get my Scorpio "friend" to be my partner. Thanks for voting up and sharing :)

ImKarn23: And I wonder what made me think you are a Leo.. lol!! But rightly said. Libra and Scorpio in a relationship. I just couldn't imagine (probably not even in business). But I do have a very close Libran friend with whom I get along with very well, except for her typical indeciseveness which make s me pull my hair apart :D Thanks for voting up..

I am a Scorpio man and much of how you described US is spot on. I love intensely and agree that I can be your best friend or your worst enemy. I will give my life for the ones I can only count a few on one hand.

I have been compatible with Taurus and Virgos and spent 8 yrs together with a Scorpio woman. We are not together today, but our friendship will never fail. Yes I am emotional, secretive and strong.

Yet much of my life being a Scorpio has worked against me, I couldn't hang on to someone for long, especially someone I loved intensely. What an interesting hub I will have to pass it on to my female Scorpio friend.

One thing i can guarantee - scorpios and libras? NOT a good match at all - for relationships or friendships...

i'm pure libra and while it's not recommended that we commune with scorpios - it's been amazing how often a person i don't get along with is a scorpio...and ONLY scorpio..

(we won't discuss my scorpio ex-husband - i'm not even including

To Lzlpio9o: Dear, if you are deeply concerned with justice and trust easily - you're libra..(sensual may also be an attribute..)..

great info..

voting up and sharing out..

@lzlip09o: It's like November 22 -- which puts one who was born in that date in a limbo. Is he a Scorpio or Sagittarius? Good thing I was born on November 21st, and although sometimes that date falls into a Sagittarius area, I'm much much more of a Scorpio (maybe 90%). I'm secretive, suspicious, stubborn, and loves only one guy. I wasn't even aware of horoscopes yet before, I have always been like that. :)

A.A: That is always a problem with any Scorpio (male/female). We act in the spur of the moment and later regret it. By then, it is too late. It has happened to me.. I can understand how you feel. Especially, when it is a sudden separation from someone you really like (I have gone through that). It feels like a void no one can fill in.. But things are what they are.

I would say, just apologize for all that and be unconditional. And leave it there. I am sure, at some point, he will understand it. Know that he is similar to you (all Scorpios have very common traits).

i was born on OCT 29, he is NOV 10.

I have apologised by the way:

first i said im so sorry and bla bla bla in a very kind desperate way

then i reminded him how he also disrespected me on few occasions but after he said sorry i forgave him, and i said look i like u..

then next day i sent him a msg saying im very upset that i ve made him upset, he was a great friend and i don't want him to be upset with me

but he hasn't replied. Maybe if i wait he will in time.. but i think if i keep msging and say sorry, he would get angry.

A.A 4 years ago

I know, but i am just a friend! i wasn't his girlfriend ! But it was so harsh for him to say he does not want to have any kind of contact from me anymore .. i guess i was a bit rude. i indirectly disrespected his ex ( i get weird when i have a crush on someone, become obsessive, and nosy, and jealous... ) i usually forgive, but if i am in a relationship which the guy hurts me, then i wont forget and make him pay for it big time. i dono, he just said he doesn't enjoy the friendship anymore. i went into his privacy. i am happy now to forget about my crush and just put it down to simple friendhship.. i hate when i make someone upset.

A.A: I think the best thing to do is to apologize to him genuinely. It is hard for a Scorpio to accept his/her mistake, but it is the best thing to do. And yes, most times Scorpios don't accept an apology easily as well (I wouldn't accept an apology even from my Scorpio girl so easily even if it is genuine, if I felt she screwed up). But do hope that he sees it from your angle, forgives you and you can bond back. If two Scorpios are willing to bond back, the friendship can actually become stronger.

i am a scorpio female and been friends with a scorpio man. hes been an awesome friend in such a short time. he knows i like him, and has emphasised on us to be friends only.recently i said something to him recently about relationships which kind of related to his ex, he got very angry and said i have crossed the line way over the limit and does not want me to contact him. He was such a nice friend, but my jealousy came in the way ( fear of him get back to his ex, which i know he loves her).

i don't know i want his friendship back :(

lzlpio90: You will have some traits of both as you were born on a cusp. People who are born on a cusp (usually 2-3 days of transition from one sign to another) see traits of both. As far as I know, one of the signs has a stronger influence though.

I am an scorpio girl and I admit some traits are matching mine and some are not... But, I do often get so confused about my sodiac sign. Could it be Libra or Scorpio? I was born on Oct 23 and other info says I'm a Libra...
