Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac , and the Eighth House is all about sex, death, and the cycle of regeneration. This is not a woman who tolerates surface-level interactions easily. She prefers to give her attention to those willing to go deep with her. One of the most sensitive signs in the zodiac, Scorpio women feel their emotions intensely, though they may not always express them overtly.
A water-ruled sign, Scorpio is symbolized by the submerged depths, like the pure waters flowing through an underground cave. Only the most determined and respectful will be granted permission to explore the secret caverns within the heart of a Scorpio woman.
Sex is extremely important to these women, and sharing a sexual connection with their deeply-bonded lover is a necessity for them to feel completely fulfilled in life. So until they find their soul match, a Scorpio can feel a little adrift without a partner to frolic and share intimacy with. Dating and lackadaisical flirting for fun's sake or just as something to pass the time rarely appeals to focused, intense Scorpion women.
Do you have what it takes to grab her attention? They tend to have consuming romances that take up a lot of their time and emotional energy. Once she commits, she tends to mate for life. But once this woman stakes her claim on you, she has a hard time letting go. It very well might be the lair of the Queen of the Underworld, lounging on a chaise and grinning up at the hustling and bustling feet of passersby with amusement.
She makes her living space an insular, private domain where only her closest friends and lovers are invited. Decor-wise, Scorpio babes tend to adore textiles, draperies, and elaborate hanging lamps. Her living room might resemble an exotic bazaar, stuffed with the all the spoils of the souks that she's visited on her travels. But everything here is arranged tastefully, and nothing is overdone or feels sloppy.
Scorpios tend to be fairly tidy and can even tend toward the minimal, which makes their love for gloriously embellished details really pop rather than get lost in the visual shuffle. A Scorpio mom is a protective creature, strong and quiet, who usually has a powerful psychic link with her beloved children. They set their sights on long-term objectives, and work steadily and quietly toward making their dreams realities.
They often get pegged as loners in the workplace, and tend to intimidate their co-workers, often without meaning to. They work well with other signs who are similarly quietly powerful, but generally have no time for bombast or showboating — especially if the person with lots of opinions makes no real effort to back any of their talk up with actual results.
But should you ever stand in the way of something a Scorpio truly wants, prepare to get steadily worn down over time — because these women are completely relentless when it comes to achieving their personal missions.
Once they set an intention, they will do whatever it takes to reach that goal, regardless of the desires of others around them. Framed butterflies or moths make a perfect gift for this sign that rules over the cycles of death and rebirth, transformation, and the metamorphosis of the soul, which butterflies symbolize.
All the better if you can find a framed set that includes a scorpion, her symbol. Snakes and serpents are another Scorpio symbol, and also bring to mind death and rebirth with their shedding of skin. Exotic items from other countries, particularly textiles or costume elements, will usually delight your Scorpio woman. Think unusual hats, headdresses, caftans, or flowing robes. Perfumes and body oils in spicy, heavy scents, and resinous fragrances will often appeal, as well as hard-to-find herbs and spices for her cooking.
Anything related to the occult, human psychology, diverse cultures, and sexuality will definitely interest her — especially vintage books on these subjects. Exquisite underthings and fancy lingerie will please your Scorpio woman, who may be dressed in relatively simple head-to-toe black always a safe bet when purchasing outerwear for her , but choose bras, undies, and lacy bodysuits in shades like heliotrope, cerise, electric chartreuse, and vermilion.
When in doubt, go with purple, red, or black — as few Scorpios will ever turn up their noses at these colors.
