How to really understand the mysterious Scorpion Rebellion
As you can imagine, winning the love of a Scorpio rising isn’t easy, but once you do, they can be the most serious and devoted lover you’ll ever know. And for what they’re looking for, Pelinku says, you can look at their fifth and seventh houses.
For most Scorpio ascendants, their fifth house of romance will be ruled by Pisces, the sign of creativity, illusion and fantasy. On the other hand, their seventh house of long-term partnerships is ruled by Taurus, a fixed sign associated with stability, reliability and loyalty.
So, Pelinku explains, when it comes to initial attraction, compatible Scorpios need to be wary of obsessive or illusory crushes, as they can be susceptible to unrealistic fantasies. But in terms of a commitment agreement, they are more likely to get someone who can provide the stability and emotional security needed for trust and intimacy.
“When it comes to love and relationships, you have to be all-in for a Scorpio rising,” Pelinku says, adding, “They love commitment, and they’ll tell you right away if they like you or not, but they can also be such captivated by the love they could have lost themselves.”
After all, this is a very intense astrological placement, and that intensity applies to their relationship. “Love gives them this raw and primal feeling, and they become a little addicted to it,” Pelinku notes. Returning to the seventh house ruled by Taurus, Scorpios value independence in their relationships, but can also tend to be possessive and jealous.
According to Pelinku, they also attract people who need healing because Scorpios are so intuitive and ever-changing. It’s not necessarily bad, but it’s not always good, and these people need to be careful not to take responsibility for healing other people.
In general, she notes, dating a Scorpio rising is not for the faint of heart, but if you want a relationship that is transformative, healing, and deeply spiritual, this could be a great fit for you.
