What do you do when any man cheats on you? Either kick him to the curb or work things out. If you choose to stay, it’s wise to find out why your Scorpio man betrayed you.
Was his infidelity due to a character flaw that he has to address on his own, or was it a symptom of your relationship? Either way, you need to get to the bottom of the issue — in true Scorpionic fashion — to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
You’re not meeting his needs, or he’s just a sex fiend
Scorpio men need lots of sex. All men needs lots of sex, in fact, but Scorpio needs a certain kind. He wants to explore power issues in the bedroom (or wherever else you “do it”), experience a profound emotional connection during the act, or at the very least, have an intense sexual experience. If you are not open to this type of sex-play — or if you can’t withstand eye contact while you’re tipping over the edge — then your Scorpio may not feel satisfied.
Or maybe he’s just a sex addict, and his going behind your back has nothing to do with you. Scorpio can be compulsive (remember, his modern ruling planet is Pluto) and his actions may be driven by a deep psychological wound that needs more than a Band-Aid. Unless he’s willing to go to therapy or a 12-Step group (or utilize some other psychospiritual healing modality), he’s gonna keep doing what he’s doing.
And a third option is that he cheated on you to get back at you for hurting him.
[show_to accesslevel=’All-Access’]What’s self-respect got to do with it?
You’re hurt, I know. Some of your friends will tell you to leave him no matter what, that to stay is to be a doormat. No matter how much you love him or think you can’t live without him, you have to let him go lest you communicate (to him, yourself, the Universe) that you’re not worthy of respect.
Others will tell you that you should forgive but not forget. Be more accommodating to his sexual needs, or be proactive and get him professional help. Or go into couples counseling. If you two love each other deeply enough, any obstacle can be surmounted. We’re only human!
Is there hope?
Scorpio can be fixed in his ways, and may stubbornly stick to behaviors that pay off. However, natives of this sign have the capacity to radically transform their ways of being, undergoing a death-rebirth process to approach the whole arena of sexuality in a more profoundly intimate manner. However, to use a familiar 12-step phrase, he may have to “hit bottom” to be willing to change. Sometimes the threat of separation can be the spark that sets the regenerative fires burning, but your Scorpio’s threshold for pain is not in your control. Just do what’s best for you.[/show_to]
