A Scorpio desires—and at times fears—the whole spectrum of love. From love's terrors to its ecstatic heights, two Scorpios together experience it all. Two psychic Scorpios tuned in to each other can be a cathartic, healing affair or a disaster in the making. One thing is sure: If you go head to head with another Scorpio, you will be forever changed. Even if you break up, the energetic effects reverberate for years, along with the lessons learned. Upside: passionate; telepathic; strong, sustained sexual drives; respect privacy; share a need to plumb the depths; profoundly intimate; loyal; keep secrets; ambitious; straight shooter; realist; emotionally intelligent; capacity to be transformed by crisis. Downside: secretive; festering wounds; jealous; obsessed; undermining behavior; energetic control (vampirism); self-destructive; imploding and exploding. Quality and Element: Fixed water First Mesmerizing Dates First dates are, in a word, steamy. Scorpios like things to simmer slowly and are masters of delayed gratification. This makes a Scorpio a super magnetizing draw for a discerning lover—like another Scorpio. There's an undeniable pull between two Scorpios, each being so magnetic and dynamic. Often something sensual in their nature is a draw. Natural charisma, sex appeal, and intensity are more important than traditional good looks, though that's a bonus. Scorpios make impressions and subtly fill a room. Two Scorpios are commanding without saying a word. As a pair, they'll enjoy being a power couple with a palpable sexual chemistry between them. Some Like It Hot The promise of emotional depth and soul-level understanding shines out of their eyes. Their romance is a dance going ever deeper into the mystery of the other. Conversation on dates quickly goes below the surface, with hints of innuendo. A Scorpio likes to send signals, to stay in control but let the other know it's OK to advance. Rated X Being the object of another Scorpio's lusty gaze sets fire to a libido, and before long, they're in the sack full time. Finally, each has found a lover that surrenders body and soul to the moment. As the relationship progresses, they grow more entwined and devoted. The Scorpio sonar sees into private places, and extreme care is needed to be a soul laid bare at that level. To navigate the extreme highs and lows of this pairing, the issue of trust is huge. It's not an exaggeration to say a Scorpio holds another Scorpio's life in its hands. The love is total and entrenched, and the rest of the emotional spectrum is just as enveloping. Little arguments can spiral out of control, soon becoming tempestuous. Friends fear for them in fight mode, but they often find it cathartic, or even a turn-on. Only when the basic commitment is threatened do things go wrong. Intensely Private A Scorpio couple can be generous and very welcoming, not arguing until disturbing issues appear. There can be intense issues of feeling trapped, of being in a dark world devoid of color. Scorpio couples love in the shadow world, as well as the light. Perhaps this brings more risks, of being in the underworld together. Scorpios in this way are very shamanic, which has dangers because real shamans know how to kill as well as heal. A base of trust and commitment to move through life, whatever it brings, will be severely tested. A Scorpio is used to extremes and even drawn to them. Much will depend on timing (maturity) and self-awareness for the Scorpio-Scorpio pair to move through many seasons of life. Commitment Scorpios are naturally jealous and sometimes paranoid and need the mutual reassurance of monogamy. Betrayal of any kind is the death knell for the Scorpio couple, and the demise is often a long, drawn-out, embittering affair. It may be hard to separate, keeping them locked in and fighting as exes. There's a strange hold, and cord-cutting ceremonies—visualizing the ties being severed—might do the trick. Another scenario is they keep going on and on in a relationship that's making them miserable. Having merged on every level, it's hard to say goodbye. It's difficult for Scorpios to forgive and forget, too. But the Scorpio couple gets each other in a way nobody else can. They can draw out the hidden gifts and be supportive in just the right way. Sex can be where they renew the bond and feel as close as two people can. With one look, they communicate volumes. Tender, Edgy, Brutal, Soulful They are deeply involved parents with a combined sixth sense that's spooky. Scorpios tend to put their all into their life's work, which is an area where mutual support keeps them in good form. Scorpios engage the poetic romantic soul in each other and allow their defenses to come down. As security clearances are granted, over time, more of the soulful core is shared. Two Scorpios create a tender, edgy, brutal, soulful love atmosphere; the relationship becomes an entity as enigmatic as they are. Unless the waters grow too tainted, it's one that's made to last. What kind of Scorpio-Scorpio relationship will it be? That depends on the rest of the birth chart and how planets clash or harmonize.
