I am a Cancer who has now twice been involved with a Scorpio, or Scorpio rising man and it all goes terribly dark. Why is this? I've always heard that Scorpios are wonderful with Cancers and in both of these relationships it seemed like that for the majority of the time, but they both eventually degenerated into verbal and psychological abuse as well as threats of physical violence. The weird thing is neither guy knew why he was mad at me, he just was. I was told by both of them that I was "perfect","too perfect" one of them told me angrily. The guy with the Scorpio rising, wants to stay friends and possibly get back together. Even though he said he wanted to choke me the other day. What is it about Scorpios? Is there a way they can be dealt with? TIA.

I just wanted to add that the Scorpio, who I didn't remain friends with, tried to get in touch with me several years after out breakup. I told him he had the wrong person and deleted the email account he had messaged me through.

Nobody likes you. Find a Sag who doesn't believe in astrology. You're both blabbermouths so it should be a good fit.

True R5, that's why the Scorpio sign is a scorpion below a phoenix. At their base, unevolved level they viciously sting with their major spiritual lesson being how to transmute anger and rise from the ashes of rage.

Scorpios are always too hard to deal with. Not for the fainthearted.

OP, Cancer Men are very sensitive, guarded people who keep much about themselves private in order to protect themselves.
Scorpios are guarded too but they like to be the only ones keeping the secrets. They don't like it if they can't know something they want to know about someone and will use all kinds of mean methods to tease it out.
Scorpios must have control. They can be helpful and very loyal to those who agree to let them control their lives. Cancers on the other hand, don't really want to control others but they will not be controlled. The Cancer Man's temper, when unleashed is mighty and a match for any Scorpio. But Scorpios play dirty pool much more than Cancers.
It's very hard for Scorpio men to partner up and still behave. A Cancer man would hard from them to refuse because there are enough harmonious elements there to tempt them to actually settle down. But then the Scorpio is going to end up angry at the Cancer's subtle, stubborn refusal to let him control the whole relationship. Scorpios often do better with Pisces who know how to manipulate things so that the Scorpio thinks they are boss.
Now astro talk aside, you also seem to be having a patch of attracting and being attracted to abusive partners. Been there myself. Good for you for resisting. Never put up with it. And keep yourself for other types.

R10, you are dreamy boyfriend material for someone who loves domesticity. And that would be Cancer for sure. I think Taurus and Cancer are a great match, but you can bet your life that you the Taurus will have to make the first move and move the relationship along.
You would also be a great match for a Pisces. But Cancer might be better in that both Taurus and Cancer are good with money. Pisces, not so much.

Scorpios are the hottest sign on the chart but they make terrible boyfriends for people who like independence. Scorpios are very controlling and tend to resort to abusive methods if their dictatorship is threatened.
They are good for a hot one night stand or a steamy affair but don't put a ring on them.
I'm a Pisces and the charts say I get along best with Cancers and Scorpios. My two best friends just happen to be a Cancer and a Scorpio and honestly, I prefer the Cancer more. He is much more well rounded and kind hearted.

Personally, I'm a Sag and have the hots for a Capricorn. OMG - tall, strong, burly, dark, sexy as hell, but I've heard they are control freaks and more than a bit cold. Say it isn't so Mr. Wizard. How do I seduce him? Who has to make the first move?

I'm a Scorpio. I too would like to know how to get me out of my "moods." I recognize when it's happening, even, but cannot control it nonetheless. Just too emotional for my own good sometimes.

I feel like such a wimp for saying this, well I am a Cancer, but I let my Scorps boss me around and when they got mean I just shut up, or even cried sometimes. Neither one of them wanted to completely let me go although I pissed them off. My two best friends are Scorpios btw. Sometimes we have disagreements, but overall they are very strong friendships.

It's the emotional depth, R20. All the water signs are deep, which is part of the connection. They all can handle deep emotions in others, even abusive ones in some cases, although that is not healthy or recommended.
R19, have you looked into cognitive behavioral therapy? Scorpios can have a lot of control and through CBT, you can learn methods you can master to help you deal with those dark feelings.

R18, Caps aren't necessarily control freaks, but they are quite independent and appreciate self reliance and accomplishment in others. I'd say you can make the first move, but make it really interesting for him. Go someplace new and interesting, but classy or not too unconventional. Upscale, but not pretentious. Find out what he likes and make it something special that he'll appreciate.
Caps and Sags can have things in common because they may have other planets in the alternate sign, i.e., you may have Mercury or Venus in Capricorn. Both signs are very powerful and I think the combination is one of the strongest among the signs, because fire is the imagination or creativity and earth is the accomplishment. Be respectful and take your time with this guy.

R12, I'm a Taurus with Scorpio rising, pining away for a Cancer with Virgo rising. What do you mean about the Taurus having to make the first move and essentially drive the relationship. I want my cancer to come along willingly. I'm not controlling in relationships and want a partner as strong as I am.
Have I made a mistake in waiting for him to make the first move?

Cancers are the Masters of Passive Aggression. They are even better the Pisces, but only because they have longer attention spans.
R27 Cancers are very self protective and Virgos are as well. So yes, I think you'll need to make the first move.

Don't get in a relationship with a Scorpio unless you are willing to be dominated. Some guys (Pisces) get off on domination and that is why the Scorpio/Pisces match is supposedly one of the strongest.
I am a Pisces who dated a Scorpio for 5 looooooong years. Recently cut it off with him last December, right before Christmas. He was a terrible, mean spirited person who was insanely jealous and insecure. I thought my soft Piscean ways would rub off on him but they didn't. He berated and belittled me far too often and I finally had enough. I assessed my life, saw that I was not happy and was wasting my 20s on bullshit, and that was that.
Of course, being the obsessive little Scorpio that he is, he didn't accept that we weren't together anymore. He called me and harassed me and I broke down and talked to him but it was a big mistake because he brought out his Scorpion stinger once again and we had another major fight. Now I'm just totally iced him out of my life completely.
I am afraid of the Scorpios famous proclivity for retribution and revenge and I KNOW he feels slighted and wants nothing more than to fuck my life up in some way. It's made me quite paranoid.

I'm a scorpio with a gemini rising, and my partner is a gemini with scorpio rising. Does this make us total complete opposites?? We've been together for four years, married for two of those years.

Scorpion men are much worse than scorpion females because it's a female sign so females feel more at home in the sign, whereas most males split off from their intense feelings at a young age to gain control, feel more "manly", therefore, lose contact with who they really are.
It's a bad combination, males and Scorpio, because the feelings are soooo intense that to cut them off is impossible, so, paradoxically, by cutting them off, they lose control, the very thing they're trying to gain.
Does that make sense?

I'm a Cancer with moon in Taurus, Mars in Scorpio and Scorpio rising. I just came back from vacation with my Scorpionic fiend (sorry left the "r" out of friend) also with a taurus Moon, who is an unmedicated bipolar type. It was absolutely PERFECT traveling with him until he flipped out and got angry. And when he got angry, he confronted me in a nasty way that I was just not having. When he realized he couldn't control the situation with his anger, he blamed it all on me. I still wasn't having it and caught a flight home. The thing is, when it was GOOD, it was REALLY good. There was an unspoken intimacy among friends and he is a very generous and loyal friend. He was paying for everything on this trip I could never go on by myself, but he misjudged me if he thought his anger would intimidate me into silence. We still haven't made up. Known him 10 years. The Cancer is sulking, and the Scorpio is still pissed off he didn't get his way.
