Scorpio is an enigma. Unless you are strong Scorpio yourself, it is fairly safe to say that it is nearly impossible for you to truly understand the Scorpio. We hear about Scorpio being the sexiest sign, the mysterious partner, the vengeful destroyer...these are all true to some extent, but Scorpio is also the redeemer, the protector, the monk, nun, and aesthetic. The Scorpio is powerful and in control, and he or she can channel and sublimate their enormous sex drive into their career, art, or even their religion (thus, the Scorpio monks and nuns). Passion is the keyword for this sign--they are passionate about everything that is important to them. There is a duality about Scorpio which affects every area of his or her life; you will find yin and yang, God and Lucifer, Heaven and Earth all wrapped up in a condensed package known as the Scorpionic Soul. Is it any wonder that quite a few Scorpios are bi-sexual? Even if they have never experienced sexual intimacy with a same sex partner, it is likely that something about their sex turns them on--be it breasts or the turn of the female ankle for the Scorpio woman or the hairy arms or rich voice of a man for the Scorpio male. Whether they admit to this or not depends greatly on their upbringing and the depth of their need for self-preservation (in the form of secrecy, even from themselves!). It also depends on whether he or she trusts you or not, and if you are important enough in his or her life to share this with you.
The Scorpio house is the 8th house of the zodiac, a house that is ultimately one of the least understood. This is the house of surrender, true surrender. But how can this be, you may be asking, when every Scorpio you know has been down the River Styx (in one way or another) and came back to tell the tale? Scorpios do not give up--ever. So how can Scorpio be about surrender? To a determined Scorpio, surrender (when misconstrued in a negative context) may be a frightening word, but it is this very fear that compels them forward. They are always searching for surrender in some form, be it surrender to the self or surrender to a higher power. If you think about it carefully, you will realize that sexuality is a combination of the two. Sexuality is everything to Scorpio, and it is not the act itself that is of ultimate importance, but rather the surrender of the self to another and the act of self-discovery through other. Sex can become an all consuming, repetitive, and ritualistic act for Scorpio. No other man is as fond of sexual gadgets as the Scorpio Male! And, honestly, any object can become a sexual gadget when a stimulated Scorpio is around. Feathers, leather, whips, chains, food, blankets, batons, hair...you name it, it can be sexualized. Sex can obviously become an obsession for some Scorpios who have too much Pluto and not enough of the taming nature of Capricorn(Saturn) or Pisces (Neptune, in a spiritual sense) as a strong counterbalance in their nativities.
To the Scorpio female, sex is a fuel, just as food or water is. It is simply a necessary part of life. An exciting part of life, yes, but truly necessary. She can be rather dominating and demanding sexually, and she has a tendency to consider every angle of her sexual involvements from a position of power--as in, who is in control? Who has the power over whom? Is he (or she) trying to manipulate me? Her intuition is keen and she uses this gift in the bedroom to please her lovers. She will often know just where to touch her lover, just how much pressure to apply, where to put her lips. Sexuality is second nature for the Scorpio woman. She is intensely passionate and she has something many of the other signs do not--a great capacity to abandon herself fully
