While every household will play by different rules, understanding each zodiac sign’s innate domestic style can help you sort it out.
What it like living with a Scorpio?
The Scorpio family member loves their family fiercely, but they also need alone time.
Family: the people they love the most and the ones who drive them the craziest. As a Scorpio, they crave closeness and intimacy, but they also need their alone time. As such, their kin can be a mixed bag for them. Sharing a room is especially difficult for the Scorpio kid, especially if their sibling is loud, messy, or the greatest offense—tries to read their diary.
Trusting people does not come easily for this sign. If they were lucky enough to grow up in a stable home, they may sidestep some of the issues that can erupt in Scorpios. If not, call the therapist! Childhood wounds cut deep for their sensitive soul and they’ll need to do some healing before they feel ready to build a family of their own.
Because the Scorpio family member remembers their own childhood so vividly, they are one of the most stellar and compassionate parents around. They can sense their children’s unspoken need for love and security and intuitively provide the perfect haven. They are also great at nurturing their creativity. Bring on the art classes, music lessons, and private school tuitions: if it fosters the talents of their children, they’ll find a way to pay for it. They’re also better than most at keeping a secret which is why relatives of all ages turn to them as their confidant.
Astrology tip for living with a Scorpio
To say that they Scorpio family member is protective of their peeps would be putting it mildly. Woe betide anyone who messes with The Scorpio Dynasty. They’ll avenge them like a Game of Thrones monarch until they’ve paid for what they’ve done.
While that tiger parent spirit comes from a noble place, it does not set a great example for, say, teaching kids the art of conflict resolution. Learning to pause and reflect before they react to every slight can be tricky for them. They would do best to try to remember the wise words of Gandhi, “An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind.”
