The Scorpio Woman If you’re a man interested in a true Scorpio woman, let me give you an insight into her personality and then you can decide if you really want to (or should) pursue her. She doesn’t like weakness. I don’t mean that you have to be physically strong, although that trait is attractive to her. What a Scorpio woman is more interested in is strength of character. She wants someone who is ambitious and courageous. She has great respect for a man who is willing to stand up for his rights and what he believes in and who is willing to work hard and to sacrifice in order to achieve his goals. She isn’t easily impressed, but tends to have much greater regard for a self-made man than someone who has inherited his wealth and/or power. Neither type will interest her, though, if they are conceited, pretentious, or crass. She considers those traits as signs of a person’s inner “weakness” as well. She is a paradox to those who are not able to understand her Scorpio heart. She seems so strong and independent—and she is. If the situation requires it, she will step in and take control. Like her male counterpart, she can be incredibly calm in a stressful situation. But deep in her heart, she craves a man who is stronger than she is. “It was difficult to say no to this man. He had a forceful, commanding way about him that surprisingly didn’t threaten her. No other man she had ever known had been able to dominate or control her and if they had tried, she had rebelled. In every other relationship, she had been the strong one, the one who made all of the decisions and took control of situations; it was who she was, and yet, it diminished her respect for the man that she was with. It was different with [him]. With him, she knew that he was the dominant one--he wouldn’t let her get away with evading questions or give in to her just because she wanted him to--but for some reason, she didn’t mind. With him, she preferred it that way. Perhaps she had always been looking for a man who could tame her spirit without breaking it and who would take the lead without leaving her behind. Or perhaps it was because his forcefulness was tempered with love and gentleness and she instinctively knew that he would never abuse his position to hurt her.” (Excerpt from Scorpio Love - click to read excerpts about Scorpio attraction, love, jealousy, and trust from the popular book about a Scorpio-Scorpio relationship where the female is a Scorpio-Eagle.) Don’t try to woo her with insincere compliments. A Scorpio woman hates empty compliments or romantic gestures if that’s all they are--gestures. A single rose or her favorite candy bar presented to her for no reason at all except that you were thinking of her touches her heart more than a roomful of bouquets on Valentine’s Day. Don’t think that you can lie to her or hide things from her. She may not call you on it right away but it’s true what they say about Scorpios--they have a kind of sixth sense that tells them when a person is being evasive or secretive. If she suspects that you are hiding something from her, she will dig until she finds out what it is. All Scorpios are superb investigators. If she is seriously interested in you and you say that you want to commit to a relationship, you had better mean it. If you stray, she won’t forgive you. Infidelity represents weakness to her. It means that you are not strong enough (or smart enough) to resist the games that other women play and that you don’t know the meaning of love and commitment which are two things that are extremely important to her. It also means that you can’t be trusted and trust, as you’ve already been told, is a major issue with Scorpios - female and male. If you’re lucky, she’ll just walk away and from that moment on, you’ll simply be non-existent to her. Meet her at a gathering and she’ll look right through you. For a woman who can be so passionate, it’s amazing how, when she no longer likes you or trusts you, she can be colder than ice. If you’re not so lucky and happen to injure a Scorpio who’s not quite so “evolved”, then all I can say is . . . well, remember that old saying “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned?” I have a feeling that the author of that saying was remembering his encounter with a Scorpio woman. The actual quote, by the way, goes like this: Heav'n has no rage like love to hatred turn'd Nor Hell a fury, like a woman scorn'd. Sounds like a Scorpio woman to me. Even if you somehow convince her to stay with you and to say that she’s forgiven you, her heart will always hold your indiscretion against you, she will never fully trust you again, and more than likely during a subsequent argument, she will throw your wandering ways in your face. The sad truth is, even if she remains with you for whatever reason (children, financial considerations, etc.), she has lost her respect for you and a Scorpio can never truly love someone who she doesn’t respect. If she loves you and trusts you and believes in your goals, she will be your strongest and most loyal supporter. She will do anything within her power to help you achieve those goals and with her sixth sense, she is able to tell you who can be trusted and who cannot. She won’t care if the outside world gives her any credit for her contribution to your success as long as YOU appreciate her and respect her. Once she's pledged her heart to you, you become the most important thing in her world. Her kind of love is not for the faint of heart or for someone who is only seeking a trophy wife or a mother substitute. She won't be happy if you try to make her play those roles. She is intelligent and insightful and she wants a man who respects her for those qualities, not just for what she's able to do in the bedroom.
