This season is all about appreciating the Scorpion. So, if you find yourself unsure of how to appreciate your Scorpio friend, our Scorpio gift guide may serve as some inspiration.
There's a lot of intensity that the Scorpio season brings, and this powerful energy may manifest itself through intimacy and passion. It's quite fitting after Libra season, which took a deeper focus on romantic relationships. However, this season is about cultivating and exploring those relationships further.
Scorpio is an elusive, mysterious and powerful sign that some may find intimidating. Unlike the other water signs, those with this sign do not wear their heart on their sleeve. They play their cards close to their chest and are very secretive. If you consider yourself close to a Scorpio, you should definitely count yourself lucky.
Although you may have already read our zodiac gift guide, this guide will dive deeper into the best gifts for your Scorpion loved ones.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Zodiac symbol: The Scorpion
Ruling planet: Mars
House: Eighth House
Rules: Reproductive system
Represented by The Scorpion, Scorpio is often mistaken for a fire sign due to their fiery temperament. While fellow water signs Cancer and Pisces tend to be soft in nature, Scorpio is truly unique in the trio of water signs. What sets Scorpios apart is that, like a Scorpion, they have an almost impenetrable, tough exterior.
However, like the other water signs, Scorpio does feel things deeply. They do have a tendency to bottle things up, though. As a result, when their emotions bubble to the surface it can cause a tsunami of emotion. This is something they would rather avoid, as they tend to be very private people, with few people they actually trust.
Ruled by Mars and the Eighth House, Scorpio has a lot of raw energy. It could be argued that they have a bit of a temper. Like the other fixed signs, Scorpio can also be quite stubborn. However, they're also very passionate people and can be fiercely protective when it comes to those they love. They have an affinity for sex, the occult, secrets, mysteries, and all other things taboo.

Who are Scorpio most compatible with?
Compatibility is all relative in astrology to the bigger picture, with the wider natal chart giving more insight into whether two signs are compatible or not. While sun signs provide a sweeping view of compatibility, looking at Moon, Venus, Mars, or Mercury signs between charts gives a better indication.
The Moon governs emotions, Venus governs what we look for in a relationship, Mars rules passion and sexuality, and Mercury rules communication. Therefore, these planetary aspects may be of more use when looking at romantic compatibility.
Generally speaking, Scorpios may find themselves compatible with fellow water signs (Cancer or Pisces) as they may feel gravitated toward soft and nurturing signs that can level out their intensity. Alternatively, Scorpio may find a match in their opposing sign, Taurus. The earth sign may be able to provide a level of stability, although the stubborn nature of The Bull may mean these two signs could clash at times.
