This is can be an intense, deep, and emotionally rewarding connection, but it also has the potential to be emotionally destructive. Scorpio is prone to extremes, so the Scorpio-Scorpio pairing can be beautiful or ugly, but it is unlikely to be boring.
Two Scorpios have the potential to understand one another on a deep level. This gives them the capacity to empathize and show great compassion, or the power to wound each other viciously if things turn unpleasant. Whether this pairing is wonderful or terrible will depend on the compatibility of other elements in their natal zodiacs such as their ascendants and moon signs.
Scorpios are inclined to clash over who will wield more power in the relationship unless their ascendants are in more mild-mannered signs. Typical Scorpios need to maintain control in order to feel secure, and this can be a problem if two individuals are trying to steer things in different directions. Scorpios also tend to be strong-willed and stubborn, so minor conflicts can be magnified. Overall, a pairing of Scorpios tends to be passionate and emotionally intense, characterized by powerful magnetism but also the potential for psychological drama.
Scorpio intensity doesn’t necessarily turn to destructiveness. Positive Scorpios are generous, self-sacrificing, kind, understanding, and supportive. They will do anything and risk anything to ensure that those they care about are healthy and happy. Scorpios who are inclined toward compassion may actually become too self-sacrificing on behalf of individuals who may not be worthy of this generosity.
Scorpios are naturally curious and driven to uncover deeply hidden truths. This tendency can make them suspicious, so there is a risk that two Scorpios will snoop through one another’s belongings or even spy on each other, either due to fears about infidelity or simply the desire to know one another completely (with this pairing, the Scorpio tendency toward secretiveness will conflict with the equally strong Scorpio drive to learn everything about a partner).
On the plus side, two Scorpios are likely to be very compatible in terms of lifestyle preferences. Typical Scorpios are somewhat introverted. They prefer to spend time alone, with a partner, or with a few close friends to attending large, raucous events and gatherings of strangers and casual acquaintances. They also like spend much of their time developing their talents and working toward personal goals, so they are unlikely to drag one another out on endless rounds of socializing. Neither has any patience for small talk and shallowness, so when they do go out with others, they tend to socialize only with those who can offer more depth in conversation. Two Scorpios will understand each other’s need to develop skills and work on personal projects (as long as those activities don’t take them away from the relationship for a significant length of time).
Scorpios are partnership-oriented, so two Scorpios are likely to stick together and form a serious long-term romantic bond rather than engaging in casual sex (assuming that their relationship isn’t destroyed early on by stubbornness, control issues, or jealousy). Scorpio pairs that have difficulty getting along may find it hard to break free from one another. Their connection tends to be powerful, drawing back them together even if they part ways as a result of irreconcilable differences.
Note: There is more to astrological compatibility than sun signs alone. Other elements in a person’s natal zodiac also play a role. Ascendants (rising signs), moon signs, and other planetary placements and aspects also shape personality and affect compatibility. For example, a Capricorn with Leo rising will be more extroverted than a typical Capricorn, and a Taurus with Aries rising or the moon in Sagittarius will be more compatible with Sagittarius than a typical Taurus.
