Meet The Unpredictable Scorpio 

First things first, Scorpios (and all other signs) need to remember that personality and character traits exist on a diverse spectrum. What does this mean? Well, in a nutshell, we can find very different types of Scorpios. Not all of them will be shy and secretive.

Some Scorpios can actually be quite loud and boisterous if they want to be! While there is a general group of characteristics and behaviors most commonly associated with our Scorpio friends, it is vital to keep an open mind when figuring out this complex and often unpredictable star sign.

Passionate From Miles Away 

One of the undeniable Scorpio traits is their deep passion for the things and people they love. If you make a friend of them, trust that they will be your ride or die for life. Do the lyrics, 'passionate from miles away" sound familiar? We think so! They are indeed the words of fellow Scorpio musician, Drake in his song, "Passionfruit!"

The rapper knows a thing or two about his star sign and even has another track called "Zodiac Sign." Just like most Scorpios, if they put their mind to something, they will achieve it. Not only are they determined and decisive, but they are natural-born leaders that bring a sense of direction to any team.

The Secretive Investigator 

Before we unpack the strengths and weaknesses of the watery Scorpio, it is important to understand their emotional intelligence, secrecy, and dedication towards the truth. They will investigate until they find the answers, all while keeping up a calm and relaxed demeanor.

Due to the fact that Pluto is the planet of transformation that is in charge of the Scorpio sign, they tend to be pretty mysterious. They like to keep a low profile and adapt naturally to their environments. If they are displeased about lying or any other misjudgment, they will undoubtedly make their opinions known.

The Brave Side Of A Scorpio 

If you have a Scorpio on your side, you can rest assured, knowing that there will always be someone eager to venture into the unknown waters of life. This sign can be extremely brave, which is one of its key strengths. They inspire others to follow their dreams and go on adventures. We all need this kind of motivation before making a big leap!

Their need to think outside the box makes them both excitingly creative and resourceful. Their hardworking nature matched with their bravado allows tricky planning to fall into place effortlessly. When bold questions need to be asked, the brave Scorpios will lead the way.

A High Level Of Emotional Intelligence 

Scorpios ooze emotional intelligence, knowing what to say and when. If they trust you, they will have no problem going deep and sharing their innermost desires and secrets. This water sign is capable of love and sharing, which is why they have been compared to the ocean, which is both peaceful and therapeutic.

In a romantic relationship, your Scorpio lover will never let go of you, sticking by your side through thick and thin. They are always in sync with their own emotions and will bring out the best in their partners who may struggle to open up. If you are married to a Scorpio, be prepared for lots of DMC's (deep, meaningful conversations!)

Wise Beyond Their Years 

There has always been a very ancient feel to a Scorpio. They have even been described as "old souls" because they always offer great insight no matter their age. They seem experienced, composed, and ready to deliver a life-changing speech simply because of their instinctively controlled nature.

Scorpio is often mistaken for being much older than they really are. This is a good thing that certainly serves them well in the workplace and in real life. No one takes chances with the Scorpio because of the strength and confidence they embody paired with a feel of mature adulting skills.

Here To Save The Day

Thanks to their extreme focus and determination, Scorpios often come through when no one else will. While some friends or family may let you down, Scorpio will be there to save the day. This is because they are both ambitious and heroic, delivering results when it counts the most.

If you have a task that needs to be done on time and completed to perfection, try to find yourself a Scorpio. They will ensure that everything runs smoothly. Whether it's your prom, wedding, or a work event, hire a fiery stinger whom you can rely on. You can thank us later!

Their Unique Sixth Sense 

If you know a Scorpio, then this fifth and most prominent strength of theirs is one you cannot miss. It is, of course, their uncanny intuitive and perceptive nature. Not only do they have a keen "sense" about most things, but they can also read people well, which allows them to predict how things will unfold better than any other sign!

Watch Out For That Sting 

The scorpion is known for its potent stinger that can strike when you least expect it. Scorpios are similar to this as they will carry grudges for a very long time and strike back if they are pushed too far. This rash tendency comes in as one of their main weaknesses.

If you want to avoid this side of them, it's simple; just stay loyal! This might be easier said than done as Scorpios tend to create far fetched ideas about people. Their imaginations run wild if they feel betrayed and double-crossed. Don't count of a Scorpio to bury the hatchet...

Trust Is Earned Slowly 

One trait the Scorpio's tend to lack is that of trust. They take a while to warm up to people, preferring to stick with those whom they have known for a while. They do eventually open up, but building real trust will take time, and this sign will put friends, family, and loved ones through specific "tests" to check if they can genuinely trust them.

In a romantic relationship, this weakness is especially problematic because Scorpios place lots of pressure on their partners. If they start to doubt their faithfulness, things can turn sour pretty quickly. Potential loved ones must be aware of this so that they can navigate this the right way.

The Overly Obsessive Scorpio 

If there is one evidential weakness from Scorpios, it has to be their obsessive characteristics. Whether it is a person, a celebrity, a place, or their job, Scopio's get very attached and even clingy at times. Many have called the Scorpio zodiac a "fanatic" who becomes engulfed in things.

This can, of course, lead to loyalty, but many Scorpios take this to the next level. Their obsessions can sometimes be unhealthy, and they can become so stubborn that it may be tough to reason with them. They won't see their obsessions and will defend their actions blindly.

Green With Jealousy 

Scorpios and their immense loyalty also mean that they will suspect their partners of all kinds of things. This is because of their deep love and commitment to their partner, but it leads to ugly jealously. In order to determine if they have their partner's full attention, they will spy on their other half as a result of their jealousy.

They find it difficult to see their partners interact with others and can become both cunning and manipulative to stop this. They resort to giving their partners ultimatums, hoping that this will make them the only focus of their lives. This trait must be continuously checked because it can derail a good relationship.

Scorpio Sarcasm Doesn't Always Go Down Well. 

The kings and queens of sarcasm are undoubtedly Scorpios. Not only do they always have a witty comeback, but this dry and often rude sense of humor can rub people up the wrong way. Scorpios might find it odd if their friends are offended by their "jokes."

Despite their high emotional intelligence, Scorpios are far too smart for their own good. They manage to come up with quirky replies instantly, and while this can be a good thing, they tend to use it in a demeaning way. Arrogant Scorpios will always have a sarcastic remark up their sleeve, and this brings out their passive-aggressive side.
