The Scorpio Woman
The Scorpio Woman: Love, Sexuality, Friendship, Style
The Scorpio Woman
A Scorpio woman is the sexiest and most mysterious of the twelve signs of the zodiac. She is exotic and magnetic, as deep as the sea, and, depending on her mood, as calm or as tempestuous. She is extraordinarily intuitive and will be keenly interested in the esoteric, or any occult or spiritual experience that offers some kind of deep insight. She is in tune with the fundamental forces of life and nature and is moved by the great tides and events of human experience.
The Scorpio woman should never be taken lightly. They aren’t flaky, fluffy, or helpless creatures by any stretch of the imagination. Direct, and brilliantly sharp, Scorpio women only focus on the fundamental essence of any issue and disregard the superfluous. They like clear endings and beginnings, with no grey areas in between. A Scorpio woman wants her certainties to remain just so – absolutely rock steady and assured. She wants to understand everything and knows how to craft just the right question to obtain the answers she seeks.
Scorpios are intuitive, controlling, and sometimes self-destructive, but in all this they have a certain deadly beauty to their personalities. They are fearless and stubborn and even when life gets a little tricky they merely take it on the chin and keep going. Self-confident, resourceful, and strong, Scorpios are driven to succeed; they work hard and are willing to sacrifice anything to get to their goals. They are also complex and secretive, choosing who they divulge their secrets to carefully.

Scorpios in Love
Hell hath no fury like a Scorpio scorned. The good news is that she does not get scorned often. In love, Scorpio women play the game just as well as any other and they are incredibly sexy to boot. Intensely passionate and surprisingly emotional, this Water sign can be an enigma to their lovers. Their real feelings and intentions are sometimes murky, hidden deeply, and obscured. A Scorpio in love is alluring and mysterious, her stormy passions unleashed with the force of tempests.
She loves with a fierce devotion and is deeply passionate. Once she is sure of her partner, her love will be forever, her life will revolve around that person, and she will be unendingly loyal. The Scorpio woman loves her partner passionately and will do anything for him. She will promote his career, and she will never hear a bad word spoken about him. She will defend him to the hilt and praise him, building his self-esteem. She is extremely attractive, and so she might have people buzzing round her like flies. Although she will enjoy the attention, she sees flirting as an insult, and her loyal devotion means she will stay faithful to her chosen partner.
Scorpio and Relationships
Strong Scorpio women might appear to want to wear the pants in relationships. This can lead to an interesting dynamic with their partners, who, if too docile, will be stung into a lifeless compliance, or if too unyielding, can cause painful arguments to explode. The Scorpio woman neither wants nor needs these two situations. What she seeks is a partner who can walk the middle line – brave enough to stand up to her, yet understanding enough to let her take the lead now and then.
In relationships, Scorpio women want to make their partner’s lives as easy as possible, just as long as you let her win every now and again. She is caring and devoted, but you should never cross a scorpion – those stingers can give you a painful welt! Scorpio women often favor Aries and Virgo partners.
Scorpio women have little interest in superficial connections, seeking out depth and passion in their relationships. They are immensely giving and loving, passionate and caring, loyal and unswerving.
Scorpio and Friendships
Scorpios can either be your “bestest” friend ever, or your worst enemy. Loyalty is important to Scorpio women, but they never forget a wrong. If you can prove you are a worthy friend, they in return are faithful comrades. No secrets of yours will ever be spread to the grapevines by a Scorpio, or any malicious gossip proliferated. They pick and choose their friendships carefully, and it is usually an honor to be a Scorpio woman’s trusted confidante.
Passion rules Scorpio women’s whole life. She can love or hate with equal passion but since she rarely shows her feelings it’s hard to know what she is thinking or feeling. She keeps her own secrets, and because she values secrecy, she can be trusted to keep the confidences of her friends, to whom she will be extremely loyal.
She will never, ever forget a kindness and always want to repay it many times over.
Scorpio and Sex
All hail the Scorpio woman, sex goddess! Her sexual prowess and drive are the main characteristics of this sign. A Scorpio woman can set a room full of people on fire with just one half-lidded, come-hither look. She has a high libido and loves giving and receiving sensual pleasure. If you dare to step into her lair, make sure you have the stamina to keep up – Scorpio women are absolute amazons between the sheets.
Scorpio and Career
The Scorpio woman can excel at almost any occupation she wants. She might be ideally suited to the job of doctor or surgeon, scientist or leader, where her incisive mind can be used to its full potential, and her inherent strength is enough to carry her through difficult and demanding situations.
She will be effective in any job that makes a difference in the world, and her ambition and persistence will ensure that she succeeds in whatever enterprise she decides to focus on. Anyone who has a Scorpio woman on their side in a venture has a powerful ally. She will remember the smallest kindnesses extended to her, and will always want to repay it with heartfelt generosity. She absolutely does her share of work.
She is perceptive enough to be a keen psychiatrist, psychologist, police officer, detective, or social worker, and her analytical mind is perfectly suited for research and analysis positions, especially in medical and scientific fields.
She is also wonderful at supporting and developing other people’s talents and resources, making her more than suitable for jobs in banking, talent scouting, insurance, promotion, and agencies.
Scorpio and Money
To Scorpio women, money is a tool to be used, whether it be for investing and saving, or for spending. However, she might be one of those people who hide their wealth away, not wanting anyone to know just how much she has, or how much she owes. When it comes to entertaining, she prefers intimate dinners to loud parties and will splurge on making these simply wonderful.
The Scorpio woman manages her money very well – most of the time. True to the intricate nature of this woman, however, her compulsive behaviors sometimes take over. Spending spree!
Many Scorpios have a guilty pleasure, for example, she could be addicted to expensive accessories such as shoes and handbags made of luxurious leather, and won’t care about paying over the odds for these things. Otherwise, she can be very shrewd with her finances.
Fortunately, this woman can control her spending if she really needs to and will easily switch from enjoying a shopping spree in the mall to sitting across the desk from her banker and discussing appropriate financial investments for the future.
Scorpio and Family
Home and family are sacred to Scorpio women, and she will defend both boldly and bravely from anything she sees as an attack.
A Scorpio parent teaches her children to be independent and strong and will always be proud of their achievements. She treats them as individuals, not as her possessions or extensions of herself – a rare and wonderful thing. She will encourage them in all their endeavors and always want them to shine, and she will defend them against all comers if she thinks them threatened, for whatever reason.
Scorpio and Health
Anyone with a highly emotional temperament may also be affected by complicated health and the Scorpio woman is no exception. She must routinely take a break and catch up on her rest. Relaxation therapies can be very helpful.
Fortunately for this powerhouse, Scorpios have an ability to rejuvenate rather quickly and normal ailments don’t usually keep them off their feet for long.
Scorpio and Fashion
It’s hard to pin the Scorpion down when it comes to fashion. She can do sleek and sexy boardroom one minute, then romantic and flowy bohemian the next. A Scorpio woman loves trends, as long as they suit her, but no Scorpio woman is a slave to fashion. Classy and seductive, she knows what’s best for her and isn’t afraid to flaunt what she’s got. She is the mistress of disguise, wearing a mask of makeup one day, then completely bare skin the next. Her hidden nature translates into a love of silky, sensual lingerie in bold blacks and radiant reds. From jeans to evening wear, the Scorpio woman intuitively knows how to dress.
The Scorpio Woman: Decanates
October 23 – November 1 – Scorpio/Scorpio Decanate – the Scorpio lady is particularly driven in this double Scorpio decanate. Through her strength of will the Scorpio lady will be lucky in love and in her chosen career.
November 2 – 11 – Scorpio/Pisces Decanate – with the Neptune influence of Pisces the Scorpio woman seeks her soul mate as this is of great importance to her. She is super compassionate, musical, and sensuous.
November 12 – 21 – Scorpio/Cancer Decanate – those born within this time period have the best memories, love to share stories of the past, and can unravel a mystery novel long before she finishes reading it.
Note that these dates are approximate as they depend on a person’s birth year and place.
The Scorpio Woman: Style
With a reputation for being the sexiest sign of the zodiac, is it any wonder the Scorpio woman looks and acts the way she does? That’s a lot of pressure to measure up to the fantasies of everyone who has ever dreamed of meeting her.
But true to the deep and secretive Scorpio nature, she will not be what they expect. Most of her character lies beneath the surface, and what she chooses to put on display may even be deceptive. This seductress may dress like a corporate nun in gray suits – or a sweet little airhead without an agenda to her name. Don’t be fooled. The Scorpio woman knows her own mind and heart better than anyone else.
The emotions of Scorpio run very deep, and so do the secrets. She will settle on a look that suits her and exploit it. Like all water signs, her instincts are unerring. If the gray suit is the path to power, she will take it. If the sweetness works better, she will switch lanes. Because, at the end of the day, Scorpio is all about power.
She shops with deadly intent, finding just the right clothes to make just the right impression. Fashion trends mean nothing to her. If she follows fashion at all, it is because it suits her purpose. If she wears pink, everyone is going to wear pink.
There is a certain drama about the Scorpio woman. She changes lives – something always happens when she is around. She has a natural seductive quality that makes everything look good. She does what she wants. If she wants to get her hands dirty and work with nature, she will. If she wants to run a corporation, watch those glass ceilings smash!
Buying gifts for her can be a hit-or-miss affair. Only people she really trusts are allowed into her inner thoughts. She may throw a lavish, expensive gift into the trash, and cherish a cheap bead necklace because it was given to her by a beloved nephew or younger sibling. She may turn up her nose at an infatuated billionaire, and smile seductively on a poor–but talented–musician. You just never know – and she will never tell you.
When it comes to shopping, she’s even more of a mystery. She might spend up big on a leather jacket, and then buy a cheap t-shirt to wear under it. She’ll wear any old sweats to work out, then turn up at a party looking like Helen of Troy. Or not.
What Scorpio really likes is secrets – fashions that look expensive but hide a cheap label, bags with hidden pockets, lockets with concealed and never revealed photos, a ‘do that looks like it cost a fortune but was actually expertly cut by a little hairdresser in Queens. The Scorpio woman will reveal little, and this is what makes her so fascinating.
But when she decides to dress up, the effect is never less than amazing. The Scorpio woman knows a lot about looking good, and she knows that looking good starts from the inside. She knows that real beauty is about being strong, healthy, and smart. But those pearly whites didn’t get that way by nature alone. If she can help nature along, she will. She won’t tell anyone, though. Keep ’em guessing is her motto.
In relationships, the Scorpio can be deadly, as everyone knows. But the Scorpio woman can also be the strongest, most honest, and most loyal partner for those brave enough to dig deeper. It isn’t easy – she will always have an air of mystery, but her capacity for passion is the deepest in the zodiac, for those who can stand the heat. Just don’t mess with her – Hell hath no fury like a Scorpio woman scorned, lied to or cheated on.
Who can tame her? Another water sign, Cancer or Pisces, will brave those deep waters – but it is her opposite, Taurus, that might have the real key. Cancer could drown in its own devotion, while Pisces just gets lost in its own ocean. But Taurus arouses her true sensuality and spoils her rotten. Not only that, Taurus is patient enough to build something with her.
Sexually, she can be a powerhouse, of course. But not everyone will be permitted to know that. Just getting past her guard can be a challenge – but in those classic words, she’s worth it.
