Sexy Matches: The Hot and Not-So-Hot Combinations

If Scorpio so chooses, any zodiacal combination can be hot. It is his willpower that decides the future of a relationship, and he delights in proving astrology and astrologers incorrect. For Scorpio, there are some combos that are more challenging and interesting than others; let them choose which.

Scorpio and Aries

The ruling planets of Mars and Mars, with the elements of water and fire, create a boiling cauldron of sexual potency. The inherent competition in both signs makes this combo hot and worth the effort for both signs. They enjoy one-upmanship and are a match in terms of energy. Scorpio is the more intense, and over time her love of mystery and covert activity will tire Aries, who is more of the moment and impetuous. Before exasperation sets in, these two are definitely sexual forces to reckon with.

Scorpio and Taurus

Opposite powerhouse signs in water and earth definitely attract. This is a hot combo for the short or long term. Once they fuse in a sexual and romantic relationship, it is very difficult for them to part. Taurus's earth soothes and stabilizes Scorpio's more destructive tendencies, but they meet in terms of loyalty and steady, sexy power. The sexual kick here is that Scorpio believes he is stronger than Taurus, and Taurus believes that she is the stronger one — but both are good at keeping secrets, so neither feels let down.

Scorpio and Gemini

This is potentially an intriguing combo, but not hot. Scorpio is the most intensely focused sign, and Gemini the most scattered sign. Scorpio sexuality is all about the depths of life and passion, and Gemini flits around sexual ideas because they entertain the mind. Scorpio's staying power and willingness to initiate anything will find a willing mate in Gemini, but they are like the experience of eating a food that fills you up but doesn't satisfy. They will enjoy each other once or twice, but their elements, water and air, do not blend. Scorpio will usually feel Gemini is not worth the riches of his profound feelings.

Alert

Scorpio is an under-wraps sign. He cherishes his privacy, and will not reveal anything that he doesn't want other people to know. He can be passionate, but giving his heart is a different experience and takes longer. His real feelings are always very covert.

Scorpio and Cancer

Water and water are the elements here in the astrologically harmonious relationship called a trine. The ruling planets, Pluto and the Moon, mean that a sexual combination between these signs is hot and not casual. Scorpio may initiate Cancer into some of the more exotic parts of Cancerian's nature, and Cancer will enjoy the emotional closeness and feeling that they can have together. This is a relationship for the long and short term. It is fertile for building a family or other creative endeavors.

Scorpio and Leo

These are powerhouse signs in the elements of water and fire. Both these signs are sexual superstars in their own sphere, and when they come together, the Pluto rule of Scorpio and the Sun of Leo create formidable sex. Scorpio's predatory tendency to look for the vulnerable spots in her mate will, however, mark the end of the relationship. It is difficult for Leo's pride to withstand Scorpio's scrutiny. Scorpio intrinsically likes to take off the masks people wear, and Leo has no intention of discarding his role. Let the good times roll for as long as they can.

Essential

In times of trouble, Scorpio is the most loyal sign of the zodiac. She understands the depths and heights of human experience, and if you need a friend in tough times and have been her friend, you can rely on her.

Scorpio and Virgo

Water and Earth are hot here. As you can probably intuit, there is no contest in the intensity department between these two signs. Scorpio is the leader, and Virgo a good partner. Virgo's earthy sensuality feeds Scorpio, and for that reason, even though Virgo may not ever be as daring, extreme, or highly sexed as Scorpio, the combo of the two is good. Secretly, Scorpio believes that some of his more murky feelings may be redeemed by Virgo's purity. Remember, Scorpio, in every aspect of his life, seeks transformation.

Scorpio and Libra

Scorpio's ancient ruler is Mars and, of course, Libra's ruler is Venus. There is excitement between these two signs, and between the sheets they can have a fairly hot time. Quarreling is a definite spur to lovemaking, and although Libra may lose the war he often wins the battles. Scorpio's love of mystery is unfathomable to Libra, and her extremism is out of balance. These two may not last, but the experience will be hot for the duration.

Scorpio and Scorpio

This is a frequent, harmonious, and hot combination. It is fascinating to both lovers as they see who will win which encounter. These master manipulators are unable to manipulate each other, since they both know all the tricks and ploys, and that leaves room for some good, uncluttered exercise between the sheets. Two Scorpios trust each other, and that is rare for the sole Scorpio in a relationship. To the extent that conquest fuels an individual Scorpio's lust, this combo may get boring because sex with another, similar Scorpio offers comfort but not challenge.

Scorpio and Sagittarius

Mars, Pluto, and Jupiter are the ruling planets here, and for sheer sexual fun, which Scorpio is capable of, this combo is hot. Scorpio's darker preoccupations do not cut mustard with Sag because she is too busy moving around and looking for the party. Both signs have strong libidos and share senses of humor. Scorpio's verbal zingers have no effect on Sag because she, in her frank way, replies, “Too bad,” and moves on. This is a hot combo for the short or long term.

Alert

The feeling of possessing someone sexually is a major turn-on for Scorpios. They want their lovers to be riveted on them for the time they are together. If the relationship moves toward a commitment, expect a high degree of jealousy.

Scorpio and Capricorn

The Scorpion and the Goat are a potent combo. The water signs are very compatible with earth signs, and this combo is probably the most sexually hot. Scorpio respects Capricorn because of his work ethic and commitment to power and success. Both signs do not reveal themselves easily, and peeling away the layers of artifice will be as interesting as peeling away layers of clothing before you hit the bed. Mars and Pluto, Scorpio's rulers coupled with Saturn, may, for a long-term commitment, get a bit dour, but for an affair they have a strong sexual charge.

Scorpio and Aquarius

These two powerhouse signs are in the not-so-hot astrological relationship called the square. Their elements are water and air. When Aquarius is in his electrifying marathon-sex phase, Scorpio and he will have a worthy, sexy battle between their equally intense signs. Scorpio, however, can control when he turns off and on, whereas Aquarius is at the mercy of his Uranian impulses and short attention span. Scorpio does not like the unpredictability of Aquarius. Both sides can be extreme sexual experimenters, but at the end of the night this combo wears thin because Scorpio is all about possession, and Aquarius wants to be available to everyone.

Scorpio and Pisces

This is perhaps the most interesting relationship between two signs of like elements, water and water. It is hot, nurturing, fun, and challenging in the short or long term. Pisces is the only sign that Scorpio cannot manipulate. When Scorpio tries to dominate or assert his power on Pisces, the Fish swims away and waits for the tide to change. There is no fight, no scene, just a shimmer of Pisces's vague charm that leaves Scorpio to fight with himself. That usually proves uninteresting, so the seduction begins again. These two can go on in this way for a lifetime and feel very satisfied and compatible.
