15 Brutally Honest things about Scorpios
Any Scorpios in the house?
Being in a relationship has its tough moments along with its good bits. And if you’re in a relationship – or have been – with a Scorpio, know that being committed to one is both easy and hard, more so as compared with the other signs. One of the water signs, Scorpios have a personality as deep as the murky waters. And just like water, they are highly reflective of their surroundings. Often times, they can be difficult to read. Having a feisty and intense nature, Scorpios give you some of the best or some of the worst experiences and memories you will ever get – depending on your behavior with them.
Scorpios are considered as the sexiest sign in the zodiac. They are ruled by both Mars and Pluto. As amazing as they are, dating a Scorpio isn’t always easy – dating a Sagittarius isn’t a swift walk in the park either. If you are dating, or have dated, a Scorpio, chances are the following things are true about the brutally honest side of Scorpio. If you’re planning on dating a Scorpio then keep these facts in mind about Scorpios:
Scorpios are sexier than anyone you’ve ever met before
Don’t try to resist a Scorpio’s natural pull. You will fail terribly and end up making a fool of yourself. They don’t even try; it just comes naturally. Being dominant, henceforth, in relationships is just their thing.
So, let’s say you find yourself mysteriously attracted to some weird guy with a beard and hipster looks who sleeps on newspapers in the subway and likes telling you that the end of the world is close, chances are he is a Scorpio and is amazing in bed. Don’t go on the looks alone.
Scorpios are always the dominant, controlling one in a relationship
Scorpios are obsessed with being the more dominant, controlling one. They will do all in their power to get what they want. Controlling things and situations puts them at that more responsible stage – which, truth be told, works better than you officially thought, because they get the job done.
So even when you think your Scorpio partner isn’t in control or isn’t dominant, they are. They just play along until the moment is right to put you in your place again. Don’t make the mistake of getting too comfortable.
Scorpios always win
They are tenacious and strong-willed to the point of being relentless; occasionally being manipulative and sturdier than anyone else you know or have known. You should want them on your team, because that means your team will win.
They know exactly what they want, what they deserve and how to get it. That also means sometimes they may go to the extreme to accomplish that, hurting some feelings on the way.
They care a lot about their privacy
Scorpios like keeping their things and secrets to themselves. It takes a lot of time and effort to make them open up. They therefore value their privacy a lot and hate it when someone pries in. If the person you’re dating doesn’t want to become a Facebook official, it is not because they are cheating or boring. It is because they don’t want others to poke their nose in their business.
This happens to be doubly true if you’re dating a Scorpio. So if your partner doesn’t have any social media or even keeps a diary in a lockbox in a hidden safe within their apartment, it’s a safe bet that they are a Scorpio. Don’t make the mistake of prying into their stuff.
Scorpios are deep observers
They like to know everything about you – even the tiny things you consider insignificant about yourself. They like to observe either from afar or up close, formulate their own beliefs and sometimes put them to the test too, if it comes down to that.
They are natural investigators and they are curious. Let them in. Otherwise, they will side-eye you forever and wonder what you’re up to, which might in turn make you feel somewhat uncomfortable. So it’s best to just let them observe.
Darkness intrigues them
Scorpios are fascinated by darker things and some tend to be official nyctophiliacs too. Scorpios are famous for their deep interests in the grotesque, death, horror, noir, the supernatural and sometimes even the occult.
They seem to be intrigued by such aspects. That makes them all the more interesting, in a way. Surpassing what we might call beliefs and habits of the normal, Scorpios have a wild imagination fuelled mostly by the darker side of things and people.
Scorpios have a sarcastic sense of humor
The things they find funny can make others view them as ‘bad’ or ‘mean’ people. But do not judge them for it. Instead, consider it a good thing that at least someone has the ability to find humor in otherwise ghastly things, because it makes life a whole lot easier to get by with.
Their ability to crack jokes even in the most serious of situations makes them stand out in the crowd… much like Chandler’s witty and way too sarcastic sense of humor was in Friends. So the next time you hear a Scorpio cracking a highly sarcastic comment or joke even in a grave timing, do not take it personally.
They don’t care about others’ opinions
You know how everyone says they don’t care what anyone else thinks about them, about what they do and say? Well, Scorpios actually mean it. They are simply their own person, always comfortable in their own skin and so, having others’ opinions about them does not faze them in any way.
They will do what makes them happy, content and the best version of themselves. They will not stop to consider what the world says or thinks about them for doing things their way.
Scorpios are brutally straightforward
They are not one to hide the truth from you. Though sometimes, they tend to spill a little too much. Even that turns out to be for the best in the long run of things. If you want to know their opinion about something then do not ask if you cannot stand their honesty. It might sting a bit. But then again, all of truth is bitter.
Scorpios can be a little psychic
They tend to have a little psychic and intuitive abilities… or even slightly psychotic, mainly depending on how cynical you are with them. Also, one of those many things that make a Scorpio the more interesting one among the two of you. Scorpios have a knack for predicting the future using their personal gut feelings and observational skills, and knowing what you’re thinking before you open your mouth even.
This can also be attributed to their keen memory. They keep tabs on everything and everyone; it offers them a sense of control, again. So just roll with it, but do not expect them to do parlor tricks with that skill.
They are fiercely loyal and protective of their loved ones
If you tell a Scorpio about someone who hurt you in some way or robbed you of what was your right or bullied you as a child then do not be startled when they hold you close, find whoever hurt you and kill everything that they love. As mentioned before, Scorpios have a wild and intense nature in basically everything they do and say.
That also goes for matters of the heart; where loyalty to the ones they hold dear is vital as well as protecting them is. Scorpios will sacrifice their own cause and life to ensure you are safe. It goes against everything they believe in, to leave their loved ones hanging. Love means a great deal to a Scorpio. It is rather their biggest driving force in this life.
So if you so much as even think of cheating on a Scorpio, know that they hate having their loyalty taken for granted… and so, they will do anything to make you realize what a big mistake you have made cheating on them.
They are very resourceful with a lot of discretion
This is among the best things about a Scorpio. They make some of the best friends and lovers you will ever have. When you call them in the middle of the night asking for help, they will certainly do so, no questions asked just for your sake, and not only that but they will also be discrete about it later on.
As they like to bottle things up, Scorpios are also amazing at keeping secrets of others. This makes others trust them with their stories almost instantly. This is all because mainly, Scorpios believe that it is not their place to just go and rant on about someone else’s secrets. Because they value their own privacy so much and know exactly what it feels like to have that invaded, they do not treat others the same way.
When they see the timing is right, they might spill the can of worms for you but their discretion far outweighs this possibility. However, do not think they will let go or forget about it – they have a very good memory. So the next time you think of doing a Scorpio wrong, just remember that your secret is saved with them and to get back at you, they might just disclose it.
Scorpios have built-in detectors for lies
Scorpios have an incredible memory as well as an innate ability to detect the truth in any given situation, so your best chance to make it work with a Scorpio is to not even try sugar-coating or lying to them, come what may.
The only thing you will do is make them angry, and you would not like them when they get angry. Their fierce side will instantly get the best of them and they might do or say something you both will end up regretting, so it is best to steer clear of lies and betrayal in case of a Scorpio.
Scorpios can be very cunning
They can be highly vindictive, having very few qualms about destroying you if you do them wrong. Knowing the art of manipulation quite well, Scorpios will hit you just where it hurts to get what they, to avenge you of some wrong you did to them even if it was in the past. They hold grudges for a long time too.
They know how to treat people the way they should be
Do not fool a Scorpio to be nice with you continuously even after you are not nice to them. Do not expect them to let you go easy if you cheat on them, lie to them, hide something important to them or misjudge them.
Since they are deep thinkers with impressive observational skills, Scorpios have a crystal clear vision of what you deserve, the kind of treatment they should give you no matter your obvious claims. They treat everyone around them just the way they should be treated. This makes them among the most original people you will ever come across.
It does not, however, mean they will take advantage of their ability to know who deserves what. Rather, they will make you see how worthy – or not so worthy, for that matter, you are and make you understand exactly what you deserve
