Why Scorpios Crave a ‘Fixed’ : Scorpio’s Addiction to Aquarius, Leo and Taurus Love
The Attraction of Fixed Sign Love
In astrology, matchmakers are keen to align Scorpios with fellow water signs, such as Cancer and Pisces. Why? It’s elementary: signs in the same element form trines and have a natural easy harmony with little built-in conflict. If this sounds fab to you, you may lack strong Scorpio sensibilities.
Ask yourself how many Scorpio men or Scorpio women list ease and the absence of conflict as number one lusts in a relationship?
Scorpios like to entangle themselves in passionate, high-challenge and high-risk encounters; and it’s so spectacularly easy to convert tension and anger into dangerous, tempestuous passion.
Does anything scream passion and struggle more than a sun sign square? (OK, Venus – Mars squares or Pluto squares might, but that’s a fixation for another day).
This is where Scorpio’s primal draw to other fixed zodiac signs comes in. It may seem deranged and self-punishing, but Scorpios are often drawn to signs that form squares (90 degree angles) or an opposition (180 degrees) to their suns: Aquarius, Leo, and Taurus.
These three signs, particularly the first two are like Kryptonite to Scorpio — especially Scorpio women who often dominate in their relationships unless they are in a match with another fixed sign. Scorpios like to be the boss, but will have a hard time bossing Leos and Aquarius people around. That reality is part of the attraction.
Contrary to compatibility engines, fixed zodiac signs often do best and feel most alive with other fixed zodiac signs or people with lots of fixed energy: strength respects strength, power respects power, stubbornness respects stubbornness. Since weak, wishy-washy people are an irritant to fixed signs, Scorpio, Aquarius, Leo and Taurus love each other’s independence and bravado. Neither Leo, Taurus nor Aquarius is going to be Scorpio’s pathetic puppet or an overzealous, mindless follower. Scorpio may try to fit a fixed sign into that role, but will fail — and love it.
Since Scorpios feel alive when relationships have a little opposition and struggle, they might find themselves locked in a synastry or composite chart with lots of squares and opposition. Scorpios like finding harmony where it isn’t obvious. They like forcing harmony to exist amidst static.
While these relationships may be addictive and unforgettable, they can often fizzle from the weight of prolonged tension, leaving the Scorpio’s heart imprinted with pain.
Overtime, the other fixed zodiac signs may awaken to the reality that they aren’t quite as intoxicated by clashing as Scorpios are. An Aquarius loves being shocked by Scorpio but really hates conflict and may grow weary. A Leo prefers loving to warring and Taurus people don’t have time for drama.
But when it works, it’s powerful — like a shot of adrenaline (or heroin) to the soul.
