Which Star Signs Should Scorpio Date?



Which Star Signs does Scorpio get along with most easily? What are the best, the worst – and the most intriguing – compatibility matches for Scorpio? Which Star Signs should a Scorpio man or woman date?

Scorpio Compatibility

As the most powerful and intense of all the Star Signs, Scorpio can initially come across as rather intimidating, and may give the impression of being quite challenging to get along with. But while there may be some truth in this, Scorpio is actually a rock of strength and stability in any long-term relationship. For optimum compatibility, all it requires is a partner who’s uncowed by its forcefulness and capable of giving as good as it gets.

Signs Most Compatible With Scorpio

As a Star Sign ruled by the Element of Water, the safest bet for a Scorpio is probably one of the other two Water Signs, i.e. CANCER or PISCES. The favorable 120° – or 4 Signs – spacing between Zodiac Signs in the same Element makes for an especially harmonious relationship and a level of compatibility well above the norm.

Both Cancer and Pisces are good compatibility matches for Scorpio since they share Scorpio’s high sensitivity and similarly intuitive approach to life. However, Pisces probably just beats Cancer as the better compatibility choice for Scorpio. Broad-shouldered Scorpio enjoys defending the vulnerable Fish, while Pisces feels safe and well supported with the strong Scorpion by its side.

Really excellent too, in terms of their ability to harmonize with sensitive Scorpio, while at the same time helping it to keep its feet on the ground, are the practical Earth Signs VIRGO and CAPRICORN, spaced by 60° – or next but one – from Scorpio. Many believe this kind of Water-Earth combination is actually the ideal – and surely it’s no coincidence that a high proportion of successful compatibility matches are between people with birthdays two Zodiac Signs apart.

What About Another Scorpio?

So what about another SCORPIO as a good compatibility match? On the plus side, you’ll definitely know what makes them tick, since they embody so many aspects of yourself. Especially with a Scorpio of the opposite sex, the chances are you’ll be strongly attracted to their best Scorpionic qualities – like their power, courage and incredible loyalty.

But because we don’t tend to like our bad points when we see them reflected in somebody else, there will also be things about Scorpio people that you’ll positively hate – most likely their stubbornness and manipulativeness! If so, better take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror!

Signs Least Compatible With Scorpio

The truth is, Scorpio, your ideal compatibility match will rarely simply be a clone of yourself (how boring would that be!). But neither, for that matter, should their Star Sign be too astrologically antagonistic to your own.

For this reason, you should be cautious – in the absence of redeeming features – about folk born under the Star Signs of LEO and AQUARIUS. Because both these Signs are at a challenging 90° angle (or 3 Sign spacing) from Scorpio, the differences between you may be so vast, the chances are they’ll be too incompatible – and just too much hard work!

Of these two Star Signs, Leo just qualifies as the worst possible compatibility match for Scorpio. Due to its equally inflexible and controlling nature, Leo may find it harder than just about any other Zodiac Sign to cope with Scorpio’s unrelenting quest for power and dominance.

Signs spaced at 150° (or 5 signs) from Scorpio, such as GEMINI, can also present more minor compatibility challenges. However, although traditionally considered to be ‘awkward’, and involving Signs in conflicting elements, 150° relationships aren’t necessarily quite as bad as they might appear. Okay, these may not be your first choice, but neither should they be your last. So don’t make the mistake of writing them off as unsuitable – in many cases a love match could work out fine!

Why Opposites Attract

Rather than someone who conflicts with you, Scorpio, what you’re really looking for, from a Star Sign compatibility point of view, is the kind of person who is able to balance or complement you in some way. For this reason, the Sign diametrically opposite your own, i.e. TAURUS, can be a great compatibility match for you, Scorpio.

Opposite Star Signs are often magnetically attracted to each other, their strong yin-yang polarity giving them the potential to complete each other like two halves of a perfect whole. When dating a Taurus, emotionally intense Scorpio can benefit from its opposite Sign’s more straightforward, down-to-earth-approach. Scorpio’s tendency towards moodiness is less of a problem when it has calm and sensible Taurus by its side.

Neighboring Star Signs

Although Scorpio is quite different from its immediate neighbors, LIBRA and SAGITTARIUS, in reality it can relate quite well to – and frequently enjoys quite a good level of compatibility with – these Star Signs. This is because people whose Sun Sign is Scorpio often have Mercury or Venus – which can never be far from the Sun – in the preceding or following signs of Libra or Sagittarius. Many Scorpio-Libra or Scorpio-Sagittarius couples will therefore embody a number of each other’s characteristics and have far more in common than you might initially expect.

Scorpio Compatibility ‘Wild Card’

Although not technically recognized as a good compatibility match for Scorpio, because of the awkward 150° angle, ARIES is a popular ‘wild card’ partnership choice for the Scorpion. Both ruled by Mars, the planet of passion (and of war!), Scorpio and Aries invariably have such a red-hot and utterly compulsive sexual chemistry, it almost makes up for all the ferocious fights and power struggles which come with the territory in this relationship. An exciting partnership choice for all Scorpios who like to live dangerously (and there are very few who don’t)!

How Can Scorpio Improve Their Compatibility?

To improve their chances of getting on better with every Star Sign, Scorpio should focus on showing others less of their most annoying traits, i.e. their manipulativeness and inflexibility, and more of what's most endearing about them, i.e. their loyalty and commitment. If you're a Scorpio, in general everyone will find you easier to live with if you ease up on your need to control everything and everyone around you. This will be particularly important in the case of Star Sign matches which present the biggest compatibility challenges for a Scorpio, as detailed above.
