When Scorpio and Scorpio come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s an instant psychic connection that moves fast. These two soul-stirring mystics crave sex and intimacy, which could become isolating since you’ll never want to leave the bedroom! A Scorpio-Scorpio relationship can move quickly, since you both understand each others’ need for lifelong perma-bonding.
Scorpio and Scorpio: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
Your bond is more solid than Krazy Glue! There’s an unspoken safety in the arms of a fellow Scorpio. Here, you don’t have to put on a happy face, ‘fess up to your insecurities, or cover up your general scorn for the masses. You can just be your smoldering self, no explanations required, no questions asked. With your mutual ability to pick up on psychic signals, you’ll share an unspoken connection that is damn near telepathic. As such, you can pretty much skip the whole courtship song and dance, and get right down to your favorite form of communication: sex. The foreplay is mind-blowing as you study ever inch of each other with obsessive fascination. Then you’ll stay up for the rest of the night taking nude photos of each other and composing ironic-yet-soulful indie rock love ballads dedicated to each other. It’s so damn easy to be together that you’ll set up camp quickly in each other’s homes. Life together is a mystical journey that never grows boring.
Where you clash:
Warning: Go ahead and pack up your single lives—the U-Haul may be rented before you can plan the third date! Since you’re both 100 percent devoted to all that you do, children can interrupt your sexual groove, becoming the sole focus of your union. Try to strive for more balance as a couple. Although Scorpios are capable of lengthy periods of celibacy, you’ll sacrifice your fundamental life force energy if you “close up shop” for too long. While it’s nice to feel so safe together, comfort has its limits.
Scorpio and Scorpio are both water signs
Into the depths you go! Two highly sensitive and perceptive water signs can get VERY comfortable with each other—and fast. You could go from dating to suddenly meeting each other’s parents and families and earning the seal of approval. Home is everything to the water sign. Your solitude-seeking souls need to retreat to a private and intimate hub after being out in the wider world. You could host the holidays, rent the beach house where everyone communes, have kids crawling out of every nook. A water sign home is likely to feature cozily-appointed guest bedrooms and lots of spare pillows and blankets. Your nostalgic signs both cherish family and tradition. Since you don’t trust easily, you may have a small, tight-knit circle of friends that you keep for life. If you open a business together, you’ll create a “family” vibe at the office. (And yes, they’ll be secretly subject to loyalty tests.)
You can pretty much skip the whole courtship song and dance, and get right down to your favorite form of communication: sex.
While it’s nice to feel so safe together, comfort has its limits. If you wrap yourselves too tightly in this security blanket, it can smother you. A water sign relationship can devolve into a parent-child dynamic (complete with baby talk and cloyingly cutesy nicknames) and self-destructive indulgence in food, drink and self-soothing activities like shopping. You can get TOO deep “in your feelings,” stirring up a tsunami of emotions that can spiral into rage and even abuse if you aren’t careful. Your powerful moods may overlap or spiral out of control if not managed. Although water can be placid and beautiful, it can actually do great damage. To avoid creating a hurricane, you’ll both need to talk to a therapist or a grounded friend before unleashing your anger, resentment or jealousy on each other. Water that doesn’t move can become stagnant and toxic—and a water-sign couple may become possessive and fearful of change to their own detriment.
There are four elements in astrology: fire, earth, air and water. Each one plays an important role in the greater whole of humankind. Mating with someone from the same element offers the comfort of familiarity. At last, you don’t have to explain yourself all the time! You both operate at similar speeds to a certain degree. As lovely as that is, it can also be “too much of a good thing,” causing your relationship to feel like a single track on continuous replay. After all, differences can be challenging in a good way because they push you both to grow. As a same-element couple, you may need to make a conscious effort to not get stuck in a rut or even a competitive dynamic. Spending time with friends, coworkers or relatives of another element can introduce a more balancing energy. For example, a lighthearted air sign can get you to laugh at yourselves and an adventurous fire sign will encourage you to take more risks.
Scorpio and Scorpio are both fixed signs
In astrology, the “qualities” or “triplicities” reveal the role you play in a relationship or collaboration. Are you a starter, a doer or a finisher? Do you like to take charge and have a plan, or do you prefer to go with the flow? As fixed signs, you are guardians of your “turf.” You like to plant a flag and set up your base, building an empire from there. If the two of you share an agenda, you can be an indomitable duo. Hello, power couple! But if you’re fighting for different causes, things can get ugly fast. You’ll both dig in your heels and stubbornly defend your territory. When you turn on each other, it can be an endless war, with blame and judgment, defending your point of view just to protect your ego. Your best bet is to channel this urge into creating a shared legacy—running a business together, starting a family, hosting all the holidays. Since fixed signs have a traditional side, you might both enjoy having everyone gather at your stately home for summer barbecues or New Year’s Eve parties. Just be careful not to get SO set in your ways that you insist on doing the same things year in and year out. Fixed signs can be allergic to change, so as a duo, you’ll need to actively invite new experiences into your world to prevent from getting stagnant.
Scorpio and Scorpio are both yin, or feminine, signs
In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). You are both yin signs: receptive, sensitive and intuitive. When all is good, you are deeply simpatico, nurturing one another and sharing romantic, thoughtful gestures. The downside? Your fluctuating moods may collide, causing dramatic fights that can escalate into an unnecessary cold war. You can also get SO tuned into each other’s emotions that your bond turns codependent. While it’s lovely to build a cozy cocoon, make sure you don’t get stuck in that bubble and stunt each other’s personal growth.
Scorpio and Scorpio are conjunct (the same sign)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are conjunct, or the same sign (zero signs apart). As they say, how can you love somebody else unless you love yourself? If you date or get into a relationship with someone of the same sign, congratulations. You’ve probably embraced your quirks and accepted your humanity. Now, you can celebrate that with a kindred spirit! If you haven’t learned to love yourself, warts and all, this relationship can inspire some crucial self-acceptance. Remember, though: #twinning might be comfortable, but autonomy is important to keep that frisky friction. Maintain some separation between your lives, even if it’s easy to hang out together. Otherwise, passion may cool to a brother-sister vibe.
