BREAKUPS AND SCORPIO




WHY MIGHT YOU WANT TO BREAK UP WITH A SCORPIO?

The chances are your main reason for wanting to break up with a Scorpio is that you’re tired of their power games. This Star Sign is the biggest control freak in the Zodiac and if you break up with a Scorpio, it’s usually because you can’t stand any more of their bullying tactics (whether subtle or overt). 

Jealousy is a big problem for Scorpios and an even bigger one for their partners. However understanding you may be of the insecurities that lie behind a Scorpio’s jealousy, you may eventually reach the point when their unreasonable possessiveness and manipulativeness become too distressing for you to handle and you have no choice but to break up with them.


HOW SHOULD YOU GO ABOUT BREAKING UP WITH A SCORPIO?

Telling a Scorpio you intend to break up with them could easily turn into something very nasty, so it’s important to minimize any rancour on their part. When dumping a Scorpio, avoid blaming their bad behavior for the relationship breakdown, even if it’s true. You’ll only risk provoking them into an epic tantrum, which might turn into an ongoing feud.

The best way to break up with a Scorpio is just to calmly state that the relationship is no longer working for you and is beyond saving. Scorpios understand the idea of life chapters – that all things, including love affairs, have a defined life span and must eventually come to an end. Stress everything that used to be good about the relationship. But end up by emphasizing that as far you’re concerned it has now run its course.

WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT IF YOU BREAK UP WITH A SCORPIO?

Don’t expect to be able to easily rid yourself of a Scorpio if you decide to break up with them. Because this Star Sign has major problems in letting go and moving on, you may struggle to get them to accept that the relationship is finally over. 

In their attempts to hang on to the relationship, you should be prepared for a Scorpio to resort to manipulative tactics – maybe even some subtle blackmail. The more information and insights a Scorpio has gained about you during the course of the relationship, the more weapons they will have at their disposal in their attempts to pressure you into changing your mind about breaking up with them.

Be warned – getting dumped invariably brings out a powerful desire for revenge in the average Scorpio. While a Scorpio lover will reward your allegiance with undying loyalty, if you betray or abandon them they’re likely to want to punish you. Then, when they get the chance to pay you back, they will definitely do so, even if it’s many years further down the line.

When you break up with a Scorpio, don’t assume that your power struggle with them will necessarily be ending, because it might be just starting! When they believe they’re the injured party in a breakup, Scorpios can be extremely grasping and inflexible over the division of any shared money and belongings. 


REASONS FOR A SCORPIO BREAKING UP WITH YOU

If a Scorpio breaks up with you, it could be because you’ve been getting too bossy and trying too hard to impose your will on theirs. A Scorpio never willingly gives away their personal power to anyone, and however much they claim to love you, that also includes you. If you challenge a Scorpio’s control too often by claiming they’re wrong and you’re right, it’s only a matter of time before they’ll decide to break up with you.

However, the biggest relationship dealbreaker in a Scorpio’s eyes is disloyalty or betrayal. This isn’t the kind of Star Sign who can easily overlook an act of infidelity (even a minor one). Once you’re broken a Scorpio’s trust, you will make it very hard for them ever to forgive and forget and increase the likelihood of them breaking up with you.

HOW A SCORPIO IS LIKELY TO BREAK UP WITH YOU

When a Scorpio breaks up with you, the chances are you didn’t see it coming! The big problem with Scorpios is that you’ll rarely know they’re thinking of breaking up with you until it’s probably too late. As the most secretive Sign of the Zodiac, a Scorpio’s resentments tend to smolder away, hidden beneath an icy cool exterior, before the volcano finally erupts. Then they will suddenly spew out all those black marks they’ve been quietly noting down against you – and there won’t be a thing you can do about it.

Don’t expect a Scorpio to show much consideration or kindness in the way they break up with you. They can be quite ruthless in how they go about getting rid of people they no longer want in their life. So they won't spare you the honest truth about why they don't love you any more. 

Because this Star Sign is ruled by Pluto, the planet of endings, once a Scorpio has finally walked away from a relationship, it’s unusual for them to turn back. It’s true that as a Fixed Sign, Scorpio is resistant to change and doesn’t give up readily on a relationship. They won’t reach a decision to break up with you easily or quickly, but once they’ve made that decision it’s generally irreversible.


HOW TO WIN BACK A SCORPIO

Winning back a Scorpio ex is far from easy so it’s best not to hope for too much. But if you lie low and let them ruminate for a while, when they’re missing you sexually, there’s a chance they might be prepared to give you another go. Because sex is an incredibly powerful magnet for Scorpios, try tempting them with little reminders about how good the sex between you used to be, and how it could be even better if you got back together again.

If you’ve broken up with a Scorpio and it’s your fault, the best way to win them back is to honestly admit it. But don’t make the mistake of ever pleading or grovelling with this Star Sign. If you make a victim of yourself, most Scorpios will take full advantage of it to push you around and lose all respect for you in the process. If you can’t win back a Scorpio by fighting your corner fair and square, it’s probably better just to give up.





 THREE WAYS TO AVOID BREAKUPS WITH SCORPIOS

• Stand up for yourself - they'll lose respect for you if you can easily be pushed around.
• Never get into an extended battle of wills - it can quickly turn very ugly. 
• Show your loyalty - betrayal of trust is the biggest deal-breaker for this sign.
