The flip side of a Scorpio lover’s intensity is an excess which can overwhelm a more sedate partner. While this trait seems flattering in the early stages of a relationship, after a while an emotional life which is perpetually high strung may become difficult to enjoy.  To the Scorpio lover, love is an all-consuming passion. Not only do they take their love life very seriously, but they expect their partner to reciprocate their feelings with the same white heat intensity. This is likely to scare away or at least unnerve partners who are less comfortable with such overwhelming emotions.

Also don’t expect a Scorpio in love to share all their feelings and emotions with you. For a sign which feels and believes with such intensity, they are notoriously secretive. Unlike a Cancerian for whom love means emotional intimacy and exchange, a Scorpio is more likely to hide their thoughts and feelings behind a deliberate and enigmatic exterior. This trait makes it difficult for a partner to get to know the real person behind the passionate lover. A Scorpio partner does not disclose him or herself lightly, which stems from a great fear of being controlled. Being private is their way to exercise control over themselves and their situation. This brings us to another pertinent point about a Scorpio in love – their desire to be the one in control in a relationship. Scorpio is reputed as a controlling sign, driven to dominate and master. So in a relationship with a Scorpio, you may find your partner assuming the position of the decision-maker more than once.

How to seduce a Scorpio

Scorpios are sexually intense lovers. Behind their calm and controlled appearance, it is as though there are unplumbed depths of passion waiting to be discovered by a partner with enough nerve and self-assurance to take on this exceedingly complex personality. So if you are keen on seducing a Scorpio, you need to be well-prepared with a stout heart and a wild imagination. Turn up in dark red or mysterious black for your special night with a Scorpio lover. Among the variety of love foods that you can serve up for a scintillating time are pomegranates, asparagus, spices and lobsters – all of which are typical for their rich intense colors or flavors.

For Scorpios, the biggest turn on is a passionate and self-confident partner who is not afraid to try out some unconventional stuff. You can get started with an erotic massage in bold and firm strokes since a Scorpio is unlikely to be aroused by a light feathery touch. Include images of power and bondage since this is a lover who is used to exercise his/her dominant personality. As you get more intimate, focus on areas like the genitals and the groin as these usually constitute the most erogenous zones for a Scorpio. This is a lover who is not content with what lies on the surface and must plumb the depths of passion unlike a Libran or a Virgo whose may be shocked or offended by suggestions of the darkly erotic. Thus a Scorpio is a good partner to explore sexually all that taboo and forbidden and in fact enjoys what other signs may only fantasize about.

How to make it work

At the outset you must be emotionally and physically strong to keep up with the demands of a complex lover like that of a Scorpio. These are partners who are not easy to understand or know and sex with them is hardly a means of cementing romantic ties. For a Scorpio love and lust have nothing to do with each other and you may find to your chagrin that after a night of passionate love-making, your Scorpio is quite OK with saying goodbye. However if your Scorpio has chosen you for a mate, it means that you need to be completely loyal to them. A Scorpio does not tolerates anything in half-measures; so unless you are sure you want your partner for keeps, try not to get too close to them.

Scorpios are prone to extreme fits of jealousy when they assume that their partners are seeing others or even having a good time without them. This is not so much a reflection of their immaturity or lack of self-assurance as a consequence of their intense natures. It is as though they need to possess every aspect of a partner’s life as much as they need to possess their hearts and bodies. And should your Scorpio partner find out that you have been cheating on him/her, take care. The Scorpio sting of revenge is legendary and exceedingly venomous. So if you are someone who likes his/her personal space and does not take kindly to possessiveness, perhaps you should steer clear of this sign.

Finally it is good to remember that Scorpios are well known for their powers of perception. They can see right through you into what lies hidden in your heart which gives them an immense advantage of other people in their lives. While a Scorpio is not averse to exploiting your weaknesses to his/her advantage, on the plus side, he/she can be a huge support –urging you to make use of your strengths and live to your full potential.
