How to Understand a Scorpio Man in Love

Margaret is fascinated by astrology and hopes to share some of her knowledge with her readers.

Here is an unusual image representing the Scorpio sun sign.  I think it looks more like a lizard, another Scorpio symbol.

Dating Your Scorpio Man

A Scorpio man is confident. He knows what he wants and he goes for it. This man has ambition and will go far in life. He's strong and protective. However, he may have bit of a temper and can be ruthless in business.

These qualities add to his success. A Scorpio man is patient. He will wait until his enemy or competition is at their weakest moment and then he will dominate and climb the corporate ladder, so to speak. Regardless of his profession, he will strive to end up on top.

Most Scorpio men thrive in areas that deal with the cusp of life and death, and make excellent detectives, taxidermists, morticians, cops, and military officers. A Scorpio has an incredible sense of intuition and will use it to his advantage at work. He is a no-nonsense guy. When he becomes the boss, do not try to cross him. Do your job and do it well or there will be consequences.

On the other hand, a Scorpio can be loyal to those who have proven to be loyal to him. He is a great friend, worker, lover, and family member. Just don’t cross him. He puts up with no shenanigans whatsoever.

A Man in Love

Love and intimacy are Mr. Scorpio’s weaknesses. He loves deeply and intensely, and an exciting physical relationship is a definite must. A water sign, he is like a frozen river: calm, cold, and rigid on the outside, with a plethora of feelings and emotions rushing through him underneath where nobody can see. He feels so deeply and strongly that his emotions are explosive if you ever get him to the boiling point.

He is kind and gentle. He is loving and thoughtful. He is your best friend. That is until you deceive him. God help you if you do. His ruling planets are Pluto and Mars. Pluto, the planet of life, death, and regeneration causes him to withdraw or hibernate for a bit when he needs to rejuvenate his energy to deal with this world. Mars, on the other hand, will cause aggression, anger, passion and energy.

Mr. Scorpio likes to be busy burning off that excess energy Mars provides mentally or physically. He is a man’s man and enjoys all the masculine things the world has to offer until the woman he loves comes into his life. Yes, he still enjoys masculine activities, but he cherishes his woman and treats her like gold. He is one of the most incredible lovers in the zodiac.

If you manage to land a Scorpio man, hold on tight and be prepared for the ride of your life. He will defend and protect you if it kills him. However, keep in mind that if you betray him, he will be rid of you like an old pair of underwear and never consider going back. You have one chance with Mr. Scorpio. He is all in, or all out.

There are no shades of grey in the mind of a Scorpio. He is the sign of extremes, meaning he is passionate about whatever interests him and could care less about things or people who do not interest him.

All Scorpios are Not the Same

Please keep in mind that the sun sign of Scorpio is not the only dominant influence in a person’s astrological birth chart. There are 10 astrological planets, 12 houses, and the aspects between them at the time of birth, all of which can skew the expression of Mr. Scorpio’s personality. For example, if he has several planets or a rising sign in Gemini he may come across as chatty and flirty, not usual Scorpio traits. If he has Mars in Scorpio, it will exacerbate his aggressiveness possibly to the point of abuse. Getting a natal chart or a birth chart reading from a professional astrologist is highly recommended.
