Things Scorpios Love! (Part 4) – Friendship Edition
While a Scorpio might choose to move through the world alone, they often like having bosom buddies.
When it comes to friendship, Scorpio prefers only a few bonds — but ones that are intensely close and loyal. When a Scorpio strikes a true friendship, they invest heavily, holding nothing back.
The 8th house is not just a house of intimacy when it comes to sex and romance, 8th house and Scorpio energy may also confer a need for intimate platonic bonds.
Friends are not crucial for the Scorpio, however. The ONE, the kindred spirit, the Great Love is really the only relationship Scorpio needs to survive.
It’s not unusual for a Scorpio to think “I don’t have friends. I have lovers, ex-lovers, and people I want to make my lovers.”
In addition to ex-lovers and lovers, however, Scorpios might be spotted with the following comrades:
Who’s Yer Daddy Now?!
Natural competitors, Scorpios strive to dominate in their chosen areas of passion.
(If they aren’t passionate, however, Scorpios are quite lackadaisical and don’t strive at all).
Unlike weaker signs who need to sabotage the greatest opponent to win, egocentric and confident Scorpio wants to prove that they can be the greatest among greats. Scorpios seek authentic dominance, not the artificial kind. Thus, Scorpios do not fear rivals; instead they respect and often want to befriend them — provided that those rivals strive to win as nobly as Scorpio does — by sheer wit, strategy, skill and cunning.
Outcasts, Criminals & Mavericks
In Darkness, There is Light
With Scorpio’s natural house, the 8th house, associated with taboo and counter-establishment, it’s not unusual for Scorpio to befriend divergents, whether runaways ,loners, artists, druggies or people in the drug trade, circus performers, psychics, sex workers, convicts, punks, cowboys and other rebel or maverick types.
Anyone that society might reject, try to repress or hold in suspicion might intrigue Scorpio.
This is NOT because Scorpio admires the bad; it is because Scorpio possesses the vision to see light in darkness. Scorpio is the one zodiac sign unafraid of the fact that people have both good and evil natures.Remember this 8th sign of the Zodiac is associated with second chances, transformation and rebirth.
Stingers for Life
Ever been in a Scorpion den, dozens of scorpions climbing over one another yet no one getting stung? Ahh. The *kinship of like minds and spirits. Scorpios often feel at ease with one another, although they can often be each other’s deadliest comrades. Many Scorpio partnerships have starts and stops over the years since mutual slights can often occur between natives of this sensitive sign.
Even when Scorpios betray and wound each other, the love doesn’t completely end. They may break up but still feel yoked.
*This kinship also occurs with those who have several planets in Scorpio or 8th house planets.
People in Search of a Backbone
Let me Toughen You Up!
Scorpios despise weakness. In fact, it’s not uncommon for a Scorpio to psychologically rile people they consider weak just to press such people to find their own strength.
A Scorpio may not consider spineless people equals worth sharing their souls with, but, ever obsessed with transformation, Scorpios might adopt such a person in order to mold them and toughen them up. Consider it an act of kindness.
Sometimes this can backfire, with the project person developing an inflated ego as they feed off Scorpio’s powerful alliance.
People in Trauma
Help Me Help You
Scorpios navigate the world with layers of pain accumulated over their years of living. They know what it is like to live in anguish, depression, and emotional desperation. Therefore, whenever, they cross paths with someone who is hurting psychologically or emotionally, Scorpios often feel compelled to become that person’s ally, counselor & healer.
The 8th house is after all a house of spiritual healing & psychological counseling.
Scorpios might end up entangled with:
- Manic-depressive people
- Abuse survivors
- Heartbroken people
- Abandoned people
- Disenfranchised people
- People suffering from addiction
Often such people gravitate toward Scorpio, sensing a human shelter capable of protecting them and a wise spirit to confide in. Scorpios often recognize themselves in these people.
