You’re at a party, and he’s there in the corner, alone, probing you with his deep, intense eyes. It’s unnerving. You’re either excited by the prospect of being devoured, or freaked out by his stalkerish behavior. You try to distract yourself by talking to a friend, but you feel his energy even when you’re not looking in his direction. What’s up with that dude? Why does he stare at you?
The Spy Who F****d Me
He’s studying you. In two different ways. First, he’s undressing you with his eyes. All men do this, but Scorpio is an especially sexual sign, so he’ll be absorbing your curves, and if you don’t dress to bring attention to your shape, he’ll be wondering what’s beneath your loose-fitting clothing. Second, he’s investigating how you tick. Like any good detective or psychotherapist, Scorpio observes your mannerisms. He notices that you fiddle with your earrings when you’re flirting. Or that you run your palms down the side of your thighs a few times when you feel nervous. All your idiosyncracies get filed away in Scorpio’s emotional hard drive, so that when he finally interacts with you, he’ll know how to work his way into your psyche (or your pants).
Wearing Shades in Daylight
Although staring is far from indirect, there’s a “passivity in power” aspect to this behavior. Scorpio’s not making any moves on you, and yet he’s totally got your attention. Unlike a fire sign like Aries, Leo or Sagittarius, he doesn’t do it with enthusiasm or dramatic flair. Rather, it’s his focus that does the trick. A Sag will tell a grand story to the whole room, making his audience erupt in laughter, while Scorpio uses laser consciousness to focus solely upon you. And the beauty of it is that no one else notices he’s staring!
Scorpio’s an expert at hiding. If he didn’t want you to know he was looking at you, you’d be oblivious. Perhaps you’d feel that you’re being watched, but you wouldn’t be able to identify your observer. Therefore, if you see Scorpio staring, it’s because he wants you to know that he’s interested in you.
