Scorpio season starts today and we've got you covered.

DATES: Scorpio season typically takes place from October 23rd to November 21st.

SYMBOL: The Scorpion – Scorpio is represented by the symbol of a Scorpion; an unassuming animal that can strike great power with its stinger and inflict a lot of damage from a small amount of venom. The glyph looks like a cursive letter M with a pointed arrow at the end to represent the stinger of a scorpion.

PLANETS: The planetary rulers of Scorpio are Pluto and Mars.

MODALITY: Fixed – The 12 zodiac signs are divided into 3 categories of energy; Initiative (Cardinal), Sustainable (Fixed), and Changeable (Mutable). Fixed signs are powerful and unyielding in their ability to focus and follow a project through to the end.

DUALITY: Feminine – Scorpio is known as a feminine sign as they are more receptive rather than assertive. This is also known as Yin energy (Yang is Masculine).

OPPOSITE SIGN: Taurus is the opposite sign to Scorpio. They are both very spiritual signs but in different ways. Scorpio is more likely to dive into occult interests such as astrology, Tarot, or will have interest in crime mysteries that are dark and intriguing. Taurus is known as the Buddha of the zodiac and prefers simplicity and peaceful interactions over intensity and power.

BODY PART: The part of the body ruled by Scorpio is the sexual organs

COLOURS: Burgundy, Maroon, dark reds that represent passion and power.

STONE: Topaz

ELEMENT: Water – Water signs are more intuitive, emotional and receptive.

MOST COMPATIBLE SIGNS: Cancer, Pisces, Virgo


ANIMALS SYMBOLS: The scorpion, the eagle, the snake, the Phoenix (mythical creature)

BEST QUALITIES: Powerful, transformative, mysterious, spiritual.

Scorpios are known for being intense and powerful. Generally Scorpios love deeply and have a knack for uncovering every bit of information about their loved ones as they’re insightful and love uncovering mysteries. However, this does not mean that they like to be investigated! Scorpios are very private people and although they will uproot things about others, they will not tolerate anyone prying into their own deep secrets or personal lives.

The beauty of a Scorpio is their ability to completely transform themselves. Ruled by the planets that are said to cause the most upheaval and destruction (Pluto and Mars), they are no stranger to difficult times. These people will have likely experienced the deepest of human emotions; sometimes even to a point of much suffering, but without fail they always rise from their past like a phoenix from the ashes!

In love, Scorpios have a tendency to be possessive and jealous, but when they love someone it is undying and deeply devotional. When a Scorpio’s trust is broken be prepared to see some revengeful behaviour come into play. Scorpios are also known to be the most sexual and seductive of the zodiac, often luring others to them with their mysterious magnetism!

Celebrity Scorpios and Their Best Matches:

Ryan Gosling

Staying true to Scorpio traits, Ryan Gosling’s marriage to wife Eva Mendez is extremely private despite their celebrity status. In fact they managed to stealthily hide their pregnancies from the public.  Eva’s sun is in the sign of Pisces which can easily meet a Scorpio’s depth of emotion. However Ryan’s Capricorn moon could possibly feel like a bit like a wet blanket of practicality paired with Eva’s warm and passionate Leo moon, but overall the two have decent enough compatibility.

Katy Perry

Katy’s relationship with Orlando Bloom has been on and off for a while, but don’t let their inconsistency fool you; their compatibility is through the roof! Orlando’s 8th house moon sits with Katy’s 12th house sun in Scorpio. It’s likely that these two felt like fated soul mates! Scorpio energy can be intense, but once the shadowy parts of the relationship are worked though, these two have the potential to be a powerful couple!

Kendall Jenner

Kendall has been dating basketball player Ben Simmons whose sun is in Cancer. Scorpio and Cancer make for a great emotional connection and being that Ben’s sun falls into Kendall’s 4th house of home and family; it’s likely that she feels comfortable and “at home” with him. Both have busy careers and it’s likely that the more their careers grow, commitment may become a challenge.

Drake is currently dating model Bella Harris, but we don’t have a lot of information on her birth info, so we’ll compare his Scorpio compatibility with his ex girlfriend Rihanna. Rihanna’s Pisces sun falls onto Drake’s relationship sector, making that a positive aspect for the pair, but it’s likely the tension between their incompatibles moons. Drake’s Cancer moon wants a partner who will nurture him like a mother, where Rihanna has a very independent moon that likely doesn’t want to be that figure for him. The two have physical attraction for one another; but their subconscious differences are likely the reason they didn’t work out.
