About Scorpio

Water sign

Symbol: scorpion

Scorpio is one of the most intense signs of the Zodiac. Scorpios may be passionate, temperamental, and resourceful. Scorpios are often highly motivated and may also be sarcastic and vengeful, not shying away from conflict.

Scorpio is a good conversationalist and is adoring and complimentary. The fervent nature that characterizes Scorpio often spawns black moods or wild mood swings.



Are Libra and Scorpio Compatible?

A Libra-Scorpio romance is often intense at first, but is somewhat difficult to sustain. Scorpios fulfill Libra desire for excitement and passion, but long-term the relationship may become too tumultuous for Libra to bear.

A Scorpio needs lots of reassurance in a love relationship and Libra's outgoing and flirty nature may enhance Scorpio's insecurity. In addition, Scorpio likes to stay home while Libra is drawn by an urge to socialize and party. The best way to make this relationship work is to go your own ways when you feel the need, but Libra may need to constantly reassure Scorpio. Another contrast is Libra's casual attitude about sex compared with Scorpio's fiery passion on the subject.

Libra will need to find social adventure with other friends and stay calm despite the passions raging at home with Scorpio. Libra's balanced nature can be a mellowing influence on Scorpio's volatile nature, as long as it is introduced in a subtle nature. Scorpio will bristle at any suggestions about chilling out. Scorpio's hot nature is often confusing to mild-mannered Libra.

Libra's ability to make people comfortable and at-ease is an appealing feature for support-seeking Scorpio. But, ultimately, unless Libra can find a way to accept Scorpio's one-sided and dominant way of approaching things, this relationship is unlikely to succeed.

Trying to attract a Libra?

When wooing a Libra, remember that Libras thrive on balance in all things. They desire fairness and stability and prefer relationships to be on an even keel. Libras are highly creative, but tend to use their abilities for everyday things.

Trying to attract a Scorpio?

Scorpios tend to be sensual and emotional. Appeal to Scorpio's mystical side for the best connection. Also, keep in mind Scorpios like to have their own way and will fight for it. They are less concerned with social approval than with pursuing their own path.

There are dramatic personality differences between Libra and Scorpio signs that can make a romantic relationship a real challenge. With hard work, Libra and Scorpio can make it work, but may always have to fight each other's natures.
