The study of astrology has been around since ancient times, and for thousands of years, people have been keeping their eyes glued to the skies and watching the stars. Looking at the movements of certain constellations, your zodiac sign is based on where these constellations are at the time of your birth. If you were born between October 23rd and November 22nd, according to Western Astrology, you are a Scorpio.
Scorpio is a water sign, along with Pisces and Cancer, and it is known as a fixed and negative sign. The ruling planet of Scorpio is Pluto, and those who fall into the Scorpio sun sign are associated with snakes, scorpions, and eagles. As you can see, when your sign is called a negative sign and is associated with creatures like snakes and scorpions, there are probably some pretty good reasons that Scorpio is named one of the worst Zodiac signs.
If you are a Scorpio, or you know someone else who is one, you know that people in this sun sign are quite unique. If there is any sign in the Zodiac that really stands out from the crowd, it is most likely Scorpio. In fact, if you know anything about this sign, you could probably pick out who the Scorpio was in a lineup of people after a bit of investigation. Why is this sign so notorious, and are they really all that dreadful? Here are 10 reasons why Scorpio is the worst Zodiac sign.
Scorpio is well known for their excessive jealousy, and if you are one, no one, or love one, you probably know this all too well. To a Scorpio, who are natural detectives, if they even suspect that they are being left out of something, if they believe someone has something or someone they want, or if they’re just having an “off day,” it’s extremely easy for their jealousy to raise its ugly head.
One of the interesting things about a Scorpio’s jealousy is that it does not always stem from hatred or revenge. Instead, it can just as easily come from love, which is another thing that other signs have a hard time understanding about Scorpio. What others do know about Scorpio is this: they have no shame when it comes to their jealousy, and they certainly won’t hide it. If a Scorpio is jealous, you’re certainly going to find out about it.
Why does Scorpio get so jealous so easily? It’s generally because of their exuberant imagination. Basically, they immediately think the worst. If you are married to a Scorpio, for instance, and she sees a random dark hair on your sweater, yet she is blonde, you can bet that she will immediately jump to the conclusion that you are having an affair. Thankfully, this outburst is typically short-lived, and before you know it, she’s already back to her sweet self. PS…Scorpio guys do the same thing, so if you don’t deal well with jealous lovers, you might want to steer clear of Scorpio.
When it comes to Scorpio, if everyone else is on a “need to know” basis, only Scorpio can decide if you really, “need to know.” Part of the reason Scorpio is so secretive is that they have a really difficult time trusting other people. This also makes them very difficult to get to know because they won’t let anyone in until they really trust you. Sure, they might tell you funny stories about themselves or share experiences with you, but if you want to get to the heart of a Scorpio, good luck. They aren’t just going to open up to you easily.
On the flip side, they want to know all of your dirt but rarely share their own. In fact, many people notice a Scorpio staring at them with their piercing eyes, and they literally feel like the Scorpio is stealing their own secrets! You can definitely think of Scorpio as a kind of “secret keeper,” though because as much as they hide their own secrets, they are prepared to protect yours as well. Well, as long as they believe those secrets are worthy enough to be secrets in the first place.
If you do know a Scorpio, and they start sharing secrets with you, you can be sure that you have entered into their very small circle of trust. This is a place where you want to be in regards to Scorpio, as you definitely don’t want to find yourself on their dark side.
Certain people are just more dramatic than others. It’s like they live in their own version of the world, where everything is heightened, and it’s always a life or death situation. From among these people, you’re going to find that many of them are Scorpios. Scorpios know how to make a mountain out of a mound, so to speak. They’re constantly overreacting to news and have a dramatic reaction to just about anything they hear. Whether it’s appropriate or not, a Scorpio is ready to whip out the shouting, and even tears if need be, at any given moment.
A Scorpio’s dramatic way of life doesn’t seem like a big deal to them, but it affects those around them in several ways. They steal the show with their reactions, so even if someone else is expecting, for example, the Scorpio’s shouts and dramatic gestures are going to make everyone forget why they were excited in the first place.
On top of that, when a Scorpio gets worked up, you can’t even calm them back down. They seem to be ready to go from standing to 100 MPH at any given moment; pulling the brakes on even a car is hard at that point, not to mention a Scorpio. It’s best to just let their storm run its course unless you want to get hurt in the process of stopping it prematurely. Their life is a complete drama, and we’re just the audience for a show that they star in.
Speaking of drama, what are some of the things you might see in a drama? If it’s a soap opera, it probably has something to do with romance, passion, betrayal, unrequited love…you get the point. Well, you know how dramatic the actors are when they get their hearts broken and become bent on exacting revenge? That’s how a Scorpio feels when they’re betrayed, except they’re not acting. They actually experience those emotions, and they’re heightened far beyond what’s normal for even a Scorpio.
Scorpios are unforgiving in the most extreme sense. If you’ve ever wronged a Scorpio, you can be sure that you won’t be forgiven until several years have passed, or you’ve bent over backward trying to ask for forgiveness, whichever is harder. This sign has no problem with cutting off people from their lives, regardless of how close of a relationship they had prior to the spat. What’s more is that even though they won’t forgive you, they still expect you to come and ask for forgiveness. If you don’t apologize, you can rest assured that your argument is going to extend further because a Scorpio certainly won’t ask for forgiveness.
A Scorpio’s dramatic ways also wheedle their way into this part of their personality. When you do muster up the courage to say sorry, they’re still going to have a blown up argument insisting that they were right the whole time. It doesn’t matter that you’re apologizing now; what matters is that you hurt them two years ago, and they deserved better.
With all of the commotion you get from living with a Scorpio, you can probably tell that they’re very extreme people. This extreme streak in Scorpio can be seen in almost every aspect of their life. They have a “go big or go home” type of personality, and they don’t waver from it on any occasion. If they go through a breakup, it seems like their breakup was the worst in all of history. If they don’t like their boss, you’re going to hear stories of him that portray the guy as an absolute tyrant in the office. It doesn’t help that Scorpios are naturally dramatic. Their life stories turn into tall tales at some point.
When a Scorpio feels a certain way about something, they don’t fall in between two categories. They see things as either black or white; nothing falls in the gray. If they like you, they like you a lot. But if you’re on their negative side, they don’t even want to look at you.
Obviously, not everything in life can be put into neat boxes and easily labeled. Sometimes, you have to make an exception for things to work smoothly. But Scorpios like what they like and don’t like what they don’t. There’s simply no in-between for them. Hopefully, you end up becoming a friend to a Scorpio and not a foe. Once you cross over to their dark side, there’s no easy way of coming back, if at all.
Maybe it’s all of the extreme emotions talking, but Scorpios know how to keep a grudge. Did you really expect them not to after all they’re already capable of? This sign is quick to get angry, slow to forgive, and especially slow (if not incapable) at forgetting. They don’t forget how someone made them feel, however good or not-so-good that experience was. They take their time in accepting your apologies, but they won’t ever go as far as forgetting the incident happened in the first place. For this reason, aside from Capricorn, Scorpio is the sign most likely to keep a grudge in their heart.
This trait of Scorpio is what makes them a tricky partner. It’s not beyond them to bring up the past in an argument to get the upper hand. They don’t know when to stop digging up history, even if they can see how detrimental it is to the situation. On top of that, if you try to do the same and bring up something that they did themselves, things get even worse for you. They don’t take it lightly when they get a taste of their own medicine, and they may even become violent or vengeful in this case.
Scorpio’s grudges can be bitter, but they’re not heartless, at least not completely. They still recognize the people they’ve had a history with, and although they’re never going to admit, they still have a soft spot for them. So if you become obsessed with apologizing to them, they’re likely to give in eventually.
Probably unsurprisingly, Scorpios are the ones who usually take the obsessive stance in a relationship. This is due to their extreme nature, as well as their dramatic tendencies. They can’t help themselves; again, they like what they like, and they don’t like what they don’t. When they want to learn more about a person they’re interested in, they have no problem staying up all night scouring the internet for more information. Similarly, if they think there’s some kind of scam or affair going on behind their back, you can be certain that’s all they’re thinking about. Scorpios take their obsessive nature to a new level compared to the other Zodiac signs, putting them at the top of the list for obsessive signs.
It’s okay for your partner to be a little obsessive over you. After all, that’s love in a nutshell, right? If only that were the case with Scorpio. This sign knows no boundaries when it comes to partners, and they insist on knowing everything about you from the start. Some people think they’re way too intense in a relationship, and that may be true.
The funny thing is that even though Scorpios like to obsess over their partner, they don’t appreciate the gesture back. They’re private in this sense because they want to have someone to obsess over at all times, but back away when they become the object of obsession. Like many facets of a Scorpio’s personality, this is just another thing you can expect from them in a relationship.
Stemming from their obsession, you’re probably going to come across this trait of Scorpio after you’ve known them for a while. Along with being dramatic, extreme, and obsessive, Scorpios are also controlling. What a lineup of traits! They like to be in control of every part of their life, whether it’s professionally or a personal relationship. You’re likely to find Scorpios as doctors or lawyers because they enjoy basically any career that gives them full control over their future. They don’t like to follow rules; they create their own and make everyone else follows them instead.
A Scorpio’s controlling nature is what many people run away from in a relationship. Of course, you want to be open with your partner and share everything with them. But creating boundaries is necessary in any relation, especially romantic ones where so much is already exposed. Scorpios don’t understand this though, and they insist on knowing every password and minute detail of your life. If you plan on going somewhere, you need to tell them beforehand. They also need to know the name of every ex or friend whom you’ve ever known. Some extreme Scorpios may even try to change their partners to fit their likes more.
Although this may not always be the case, Scorpios are intense towards their partners in all aspects. They feel better about the situation when they have control over the reins, and unfortunately, this crosses over to their love life too. That’s not to say that don’t love their partners. They just show it in a more obsessive and directing way.
Scorpios are controlling because they’re suspicious. They like to know everything that’s going on, and they don’t exactly think the best of things in every situation. You won’t be getting the benefit of the doubt, that’s for sure. You could also say that Scorpios are suspicious because they’re controlling. When a Scorpio feels like they’re out of the loop for something, they respond by becoming more restrictive and controlling. They keep their eyes open on any given day, and if they feel like something’s going on that they don’t know about, they double their efforts to get to the bottom of it.
Being suspicious is like second nature to a Scorpio. Though they may be used to behaving this way, those who are involved with them have problems early on. They feel like they’re trapped for a few reasons, the first being that Scorpios are literally controlling their lives. Not only do they take over the things they can, but Scorpios also begin to feel suspicious and jealous about the things they can’t take over. No one likes to live this way, especially if they’re a gentle Zodiac sign far from what Scorpios are like.
Scorpios may think that they are suspicious for good reason, but it’s more likely that they’re overpowering the situation. Speaking to a partner is better for them and their relationship overall than blindly suspecting something is. Their partner is also going to like this method more than being put under fire every time they leave the house.
Lastly, if there’s anything you learn about a Scorpio from living with them for an extended period of time, it’s that they know how to get what they want. They’re not afraid to use manipulation to reach their goals, no matter who the person is and how close they are. Scorpios have a long list of methods they practice to obtain what they want, from emotional blackmail to other forms of influence. This sign would rather wait and use some tactic for manipulation than just get things on the correct way. What would be the fun in that, right?
You would think that Scorpios would spare their friends and family from these methods, but that’s not the case. They use them on anyone and everyone, without any regard for how the person may feel if they found out that they’re being used.
Manipulation may be a good thing for dealing with some types of people but should have no place in a relationship. Scorpios are better off being with someone who can stand up to their unorthodox methods of getting what they want, rather than someone who’s going to give into every trick they have up their sleeve. When a Scorpio resorts to manipulation, they’ve basically accepted that they’re willing to stop at nothing to reach their goals, including trickery and deception. Some may call this a cunning and smart move, but the person who’s getting manipulated isn’t going to think so. To a Scorpio, the world’s a game, and we’re all pawns for the taking.
After all that, what can be said about a Scorpio? We’ve dived into their many dreadful traits and literally dissected their personality. As a general note, we uncovered how this star is suspicious, obsessive, secretive, and jealous. But there’s got to be a light at the end of this tunnel, right? Well, not everything is doom and gloom when it comes to a Scorpio. This sign is always extremely passionate about what they love, so even though they’re not afraid to be suspicious and use manipulation with them, it’s only because they’re afraid of losing them and want to keep them close. They love deeply and freely, having no regard of what the world says about them. If nothing else, at least you have a loyal friend and lover in a Scorpio.
That being said, Scorpios, and any Zodiac sign for that matter, aren’t only described by their traits. Labelling a whole group of people as a certain thing doesn’t seem fair or right at all. Even these traits, however, don’t define the person. Anyone can change anything they don’t like about themselves, even in the world of astrology. So, if you don’t want a certain quality that you have, work on it to change yourself for the better. No one is born perfect, and although these Zodiac signs are usually true, that doesn’t mean they’re permanent. It’s just something that we can all work on to improve for ourselves and others.
