You know how sometimes you look in the mirror, and you just wonder where the time has gone. Like yesterday, you did not have those wrinkles on your forehead… And yet, somehow, you’re ten years out of high school, and that pimple on your chin still has a peak the size of Mount Everest. Maybe you’re just having a bad hair day.
Most of your friends you cross paths with will lie to you, compliment the haircut you didn’t get, appreciate the new t-shirt that’s five years old–anything to avoid admitting that today is just not your day. Every friend, except one: the one who reflects your traits perfectly because they’re more like you than you want to admit. When you meet another Scorpio, well Scorpio, you know that if there’s one thing you can guarantee, it’s pure, raw honesty. It will be intense, honest, and passionate, but this pairing is one you might want to keep in your back pocket.
Let’s be honest: even a pocket mirror can’t tell you what your butt looks like in those jeans. But your Scorpio friend? They’ll warn you to change before you even leave the clothing shop.
Scorpio, you’re a water sign who is not only often mistaken as a fire sign, but is often blamed for starting the blaze wherever you go. There’s a fire inside your soul, one that lights your path and has the unique ability to attract and repel at the same time–and sometimes with the same person.
Honesty is a core principle of yours, but sometimes you don’t always know when to turn off your bluntness. When something is wrong, you’ll call out–only as long as you’re the person who is right. Either way, your directness is only second to the passion that drives your actions and everything you do.
Whether it’s friendships, love, or work, you’re never the kind of person to only put one foot in and one foot out. Like your true water nature, you dive headfirst into everything that’s important to you.
Scorpio and Scorpio in Friendship
In friendship, loyalty is everything for you two. It’s a mutual trait, a foundation that will mold the fluidity of your friendship in the beginning and harden it into cement later on. You have great instincts with people, Scorpio, and it’s likely that with your friends, more than one of them shares this sun sign with you. Your intensity isn’t just limited to your desire for honesty.
Although you’ll prefer to keep your cards close and pretend that you have a tough exterior, you’re an immensely emotional and sensitive person and can often struggle with feelings of jealousy and possessiveness with the people you’re closest with–and when it comes down to it, your Scorpio friend is probably one of your closest.
Mainly because they understand your nature. You both struggle with those emotional feelings, so if one of you becomes jealous, the other is less likely to perceive this as a negative trait and will probably just be relieved to know you occasionally share in their insecurity. Neither of you have a problem being each other’s best friend, and while that intensity might scare some of your other friends, it’s what brings you two together.
Friend Date: Mani/Pedi or Streaking on the Beach at Midnight?
As a water sign, imagine yourself with the same fluidity. Like water flowing downhill, you both understand that if a dam is built, sometimes you have to find an alternate route. Likewise, you–the water–can pool in a lake or fall from the sky.
The way you spend your time depends on a handful of things: your mood, your company, the time of day. Similar to how your water sign is often confused as a fire sign because of your intense nature, your flexibility also makes you appear like a mutable sign, capable of adapting to whatever is going on around you.
Surprisingly, you’re a fixed sign, making you someone who is set in your way, but you’re unique my two Scorpios, because your fixed nature has less to do with how you spend your time, but more about who you prefer to spend time with and how you communicate to that person. You’re down to do whatever if you’re with the right person, and if another Scorpio is your first choice–which is likely–then nothing is off the table for you two.
Friend-Fection: Keep It on the Dl or Text ‘Love Ya Biatch?’
This is where you two thrive as friends. Your mutual blunt nature meets that in both agreements and arguments; neither of you holds back in expressing how you feel. And it’s a relief to find a friend who not only appreciates that about you but encourages that kind of directness.
Some of your more low-key friends, who detest conflict, will sweep disagreement under the rug, and this can bother you more than you want to admit. Disrespect is a huge pet peeve of yours, and if someone isn’t capable of directly addressing your needs or emotions, you will hold this against them. Your symbol is the scorpion, after all. If one of your friends leans toward passive aggressiveness, then you will double down and do the same.
Except you’ll take it to another level. While your other friend assumes you guys are good, you’ll be cultivating your revenge plan, Scorpio, and when your passive aggressiveness comes to a head, it will definitely appear aggressive, ensuring that your friend will remember not to sweep things under the rug in the future. It’s much easier for all involved for you, Scorpio, to spend time with friends you can be honest and direct with, like another Scorpio, the one who shares your same traits.
Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?
You two are both guilty of this: You meet someone, and there is an instant physical attraction. So much so that all you see are those eyes, that cleavage…..you get my drift, Scorpio. There’s a reason people think you’re a fire sign Scorpio, and it’s definitely because when it comes to intimacy…
Well, that’s the exact thing that draws you out of the house and propels you into someone else’s arms. You detest superficiality and small talk, so if you meet someone and discover that carrying a conversation with them is easier than pulling teeth, well then, you’re in trouble. And by trouble, I mean–you’ve got blinders on, my friend!
With you, it goes even beyond rose-colored glasses. You probably have three pairs of those glasses, by the way, but then add in that narrow focus, and red flags just float right past you. It becomes even more of a problem when you hop under the sheets because serotonin and her sister oxytocin are a heck of a drug. Some of your friends will attempt to ground you back in reality when this happens. Most of them will be too afraid of experiencing your wrath if they’re honest.
But your Scorpio friend? They’ll be the best person to talk to about your new love, aka, in reality, the worst. They’re going to build you up on that mountain, feeding off of your excitement until they feel it, too. And then, if you happen to take a tumble, well, fortunately, they’ll be right by your side, and there’s no one better to seek revenge with than someone who stings just like you.
Scorpio and Scorpio in Love
Does the name Christian Grey sound familiar? Well, if you’ve never read Fifty Shades of Grey (I’ll spare you the time and recommend the movie instead), then I’ll give you a quick little spoiler. He’s a bit of a sexual deviant. And by little, I mean A LOT.
Let me put it this way; he has a literal playroom of toys. And not the Lego kind. (Except maybe he did, who knows?) With love, I forsake it to say, you’re a Christian Grey, Scorpio. And by love I mean the act, not the feeling. So imagine if Mister Christian–who is probably anything but Christian–met another version of himself. It would probably be more entertaining than his relationship with Anastasia Steele (if you can’t tell, I’m not a fan of the books–but I digress).
And if you didn’t read the books–good for you–but imagine this Anastasia person as the exact opposite of Christian in literally all things. So what would the matchup of two Christian Grey’s look like, you ask? Well, you two, my little Scorpios. It’s not just going to be a good time, but possibly a dangerous one. You both have stingers, after all.
The First Date: Roses or KFC?
If you’re strangers meeting for the first time, it will be like lasers have popped out of your eyes and drilled holes into the other’s skull. I said you’re intense, didn’t I? Although you both appear abrasive, the heat of emotion stirring in your chest will pour out of you when you meet someone you connect with.
You fall for the concept of love before you fall in love, but fortunately, we’re dealing with two of the same here, so neither of you will be surprised when it feels like you’ve gone from zero to sixty in ten seconds. If you were friends first, then you’ve probably gotten to this point because your incredibly close bond ended up in a drunken one-night stand, your undeniable attraction to one another not immune to alcohol.
Regardless of whether you were close before this date, one thing is for sure: you won’t get enough of each other, and a second date is already planned before the first one ends.
Love Language Do’s and Don’ts: A Dealbreaker?
The honesty between you two keeps this relationship not just fresh but real. There’s just one caveat. As much as the directness and bluntness helped you two as friends, it can backfire as a couple.
Remember, you know how to be passive-aggressive when pushed into a corner where you feel you can’t express yourself. If one of you sweeps something under the rug for even one argument, the other will prepare to roll out the revenge plan they probably always had in their back pocket–not necessarily because they gave you reason to not trust you, but more so because you’re guarded, Scorpio, and you know that getting hurt is part of life.
Possessiveness can also spike its dreary head when you two are dating. You’re now accustomed to being the focus of each other’s worlds, and because this was less the case when you were friends as a couple, don’t be surprised if your jealousy becomes more of an issue.
Just communicate any fears before it gets out of hand. Fortunately for both of you, the love you share is deeper than your disagreements, and because of your shared honesty, it’s much more likely that you two are going to hash it passionately, intensely, and honestly. And it’s not only going to work but will lead you to the header right below this.
Sexy Time: Slow and Steady or Chompin’ at the Bit?
Yeah, remember what I said about Christian Grey. Mm-hmm. Although you two will have more in common than just ripping each other’s clothes off, this is definitely what will bind you two–and if you started as friends, well, then there is no going back.
You prefer privacy and consider yourself secret with personal matters. As a result, you’ll save that public display of affection behind closed doors, but the attraction you feel will be so undeniable that, like a volcano getting ready to explode, you’ll be lucky to make it home before your pop blows.
Your friendship is the kind stories are made of; your bond so close others may mistake you as siblings. With love, you’ll find this bond only intensifies, and it will often feel like you can read the other person’s mind.
Don’t be fooled, though. This isn’t the Marvel universe, and you’re not a mind reader. Don’t rely on assumptions–the good ones and the bad–to figure out what your partner wants and needs.
- 1- Get AWAY from me
- 2- Who are you again?
- 3- I tolerate you
- 4- You’re pretty cool
- 5- Let’s gooooo!
What if I Love This Person?
Then maybe crumple up that revenge plan and use your words instead. You got something good here. Don’t let your insecurities mess it up.
