There are numerous types of relationships to explore when considering compatibility between two signs. We grow up in a parent/child dynamic. Outside our family, we form friendships with other children and eventually other adults. We look for and find love. And, we go to work and have careers, interacting with employers and co-workers.
Each sign-to-sign interaction guides our behavior in every relationship. Read through this section to find out how each of the above dynamics works astrologically so you can experience the optimal way to communicate and get along with your sign and all the other signs.
The Scorpio-and-Scorpio interaction is one of the most intense and dramatic of the same sign combinations. Scorpio is the “I transform” sign of the Zodiac, and is intense, powerful, and a change agent. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is very possible, even if it looks like a train on fire, rolling down a hill, towards a schoolhouse filled with children. Because they have a fixed sign partner that is willing to stare into the abyss with them or stare back at them from the abyss, this relationship can easily last a lifetime.
Scorpio Parent/Scorpio Child
The Scorpio parent and Scorpio child can do very well together, once the power dynamics are clearly defined, with the parent exerting power over the child. The Scorpio parent wants to apply pressure to make a diamond out of coal. And, the Scorpio child needs to learn how it will handle pressure and intensity, so having a parent of the same sign can prove brilliant or disastrous, with no middle ground in-between. Ideally, the child would come to understand how power works in the world, first among peers, then adults, and hopefully, with well-timed guidance from his or her parent.
Scorpio Friend/Scorpio Friend
Scorpio to Scorpio friends will have a lifelong friendship, knowing they can count on each other to keep the other person’s secrets. These are friends who love to wander about on the darker side of truth, sex, and romance; so, it can be satisfying to both to be able to open up without fear of overwhelming the other person. Their story might go, “we met in middle school in the bathroom; one of us was trying to smoke and the other trying alcohol for the first time. We swapped our secret transgressions and became lifelong friends. We both know where the bodies are buried, but we will never tell.”
Scorpio Lover/Scorpio Lover
This romance, love, sex combination is one of the most intense and potentially deviant, as in deviating from the norms. This sign is one of the ones most in touch with its sexuality and will mingle love and sex more thoroughly than any other sign. Mars is the traditional ruler or Scorpio, and Pluto is the modern ruler, so this sign is one of the most aggressive and transformative. This sign is looking under rocks and into the depths of the soul all the time and loves the many facets of sexuality and romance that make a relationship passionate. These two can really enjoy the pleasure of their bodies, with Mars and Pluto as their ruling points.
Scorpio Employer/Scorpio Employee
The Scorpio employer and the Scorpio employee will work well together, if, like the parent/child dynamic, the power of the more powerful person (the employer) is clearly established. If not, the employee can end up running the business. They will have the same expectations and work ethic, which involves bringing change and exerting control. In fact, these two can work together in any situation because they will be fearless and want to forge their careers in the fires of upheaval and transformation. So long as the Scorpio employer demonstrates his or her power wisely, the Scorpio employee will be at the ready to help participate in whatever is necessary to ensure success.
Scorpio Co-worker/Scorpio Co-worker
Scorpio co-workers are the most problematic of matches and do not work like the friendship energy. In a work situation, two Scorpios will incline to be competitive to determine who is more powerful, which may be helpful in a limited circumstance but could get nasty over the long-term if they are not separated. Scorpios prefer to work alone or be in charge, which is why the employer/employee dynamic works much better than this one.
