Can two Scorpios be happy?

Can an excess of smoldering intensity lead to spontaneous combustion? When two secretive people meet, is there any hope of direct communication? These are the questions that arise in a Scorpio-Scorpio relationship.

But before we answer the question, “Can two Scorpios be happy?,” we must first ask if one Scorpio can be happy. Why, in fact, does our culture place such value on “happiness”? Fulfillment, rather, is what we ought to seek. From a Scorpionic point of view, how can anyone be happy in the face of death, torture, manipulation, abuse, garbage, Hell and discarded biological fluids? There’s just too much crap in the world. Even if you swim the waste products of your own psyche, happiness is just too much to ask for.

So imagine throwing two clinical psychologists or private investigators together. How can they resist the temptation to search through each other’s files, to probe into their partner’s cavities in search of drugs or wiretaps? Will they, as a unit, dig their own graves and bury themselves, locked in a casket of black magic rituals and BDSM roleplaying?

The best we can hope for is that two adults will respect each other’s need to have a private self, and will trust each other enough to expose their flaws without fear of blackmail. And, of course, that they’ll have a killer sex life.

  1. Well, as of yet I dont have personal experience with this. Though my intuition feels provided all else is relatively equal, and if both are really open, honest, into each other and otherwise compatible scorpio – scorpio sun ( probably good to have scorpio venus too ) is one of the most compatible pairings.

    I remember reading in one of Stephen Arroyos’ books, Astrology, Psychology and the Four Elements I believe, that according to his or some other astrological counselors experience scorpio sun with scorpio sun pairings tend to be the most positive, enduring same sign pairings.

    Have felt instinctively attracted to this myself. Maybe soon I will experience it with a mutually compatible woman? Then I can give my own feedback based on direct experience too.

    In another posting you mentioned you are a Scorpio with a Gemini moon. So am I!

    How does that work for you?

    Please say Hi sometime, last I heard you were off to the military, I hope everything is okay and you are fine . I almost died in July, in a hospital and I know what its like to pull back at the last minutte, ever since you told me where you were going I’ve worried. I was telling you about my guy and you were telling me about your girl and I think that we helped eachother through some dark days and decisions, I really hope that you are okay, you are a terrifc kid 🙂

  4. I hope it can work! Right now I am a Scorpio woman in love with a Scorpio man. We have been safely dancing around each other for 3 years ^^ that was so much fun. We have had alot of time to figure out our real selves. We have honest open communication. I trust him completely and he feels the same about me. I hope it can work that’s all I can say. I seem to know when something’s up with him and I do pester him until he tells me, it bugs him, but I don’t let him brood over it because usually I can get him out of it and he can talk with me or we can fix something that’s wrong. I’ve been his counsellor and he’s been mine, but he gives me the space I need and I understand his need for that too. Jealousy has been a problem, but it wasn’t caused by either of us it was because of women coming onto him or men coming onto me. We stuck together though and I totally trust him, we talked about it and I got every tiny detail, then went and talked to the other person, got every detail, compared the two. I worked it out basically and I have done the same for him in return. I am an open book with him, I can understand there are no secrets with Scorpios, it can’t happen because to us it means you are hiding something bad or you dont think I will understand or do not trust me. I hide nothing. Its not rocket science that if you treat somebody with kindness, respect, honesty and thoughtfulness that your relationship will go farther. You have to give your heart, mind, soul and body to a Scorpio or they will be upset and hurt…lol. I will say it has helped that he is in his 40’s and Im in my late 30’s, we need time to mature, experience and catch up to our intense emotions in oredr to understand them.
