Downside: secretive; festering wounds; jealousy; obsession; undermining behavior; energetic control (vampirism); self-destruction; imploding and exploding.

Quality and Element: Fixed Water

Scorpio and Scorpio are two peas in an intensely charged pod. Scorpio desires -- and at times, fears -- the whole spectrum of love. From its terrors, to its ecstatic heights, two Scorpios together, experience it all.

Two psychic Scorps tuned into each other can be a cathartic, healing affair -- or a disaster in the making. One thing is for sure -- if you go mano a mano with another Scorpio, you will be forever changed. Even if you break-up, the energetic effects reverb for years, along with the lessons learned.

First Mesmerizing Dates

First dates are, in a word, steamy! Scorpios like things to simmer slowly, and are masters of delayed gratification. This makes Scorpio a super magnetizing draw, for discerning lovers -- like another Scorpio!

There's an undeniable pull between two Scorpios, each being so magnetic on their own. Often its something sensual in the nature, that's a draw. Natural charisma, sex appeal, intensity -- these are more important than traditional good looks (though that's a bonus!). Scorpios make an impression and subtly fill a room -- two Scorpios are commanding without saying a word. As a pair, they'll enjoy being a power couple, with a palpable sexual chemistry between them.

The promise of emotional depth and soul-level understanding shine out of their eyes. Their romance is a dance of going ever deeper into the mystery of the other. The conversation on dates quickly goes below the surface, with hints of innuendo. Scorpio likes to send signals, to stay in control, but let the other know it's okay to advance.

Being the object of another Scorpio's lusty gaze sets fire to libidos, and before long, they're in the sack full time. Finally, they've found a lover that surrenders body and soul to the moment.

As the relationship progresses, they grow more entwined and devoted. The Scorpio sonar sees into private places, and extreme care is needed to be a soul laid bare at that level. To navigate the extreme highs and lows of this pairing, the issue of trust is huge. It's not an exaggeration to say a Scorp holds another Scorp's life in its hands.

The love is total and entrenched, and the rest of the emotional spectrum is just as enveloping. Little arguments can spiral out of control, and soon they're a tempestuous duo. Friends fear for them when in fight mode, but they often find it cathartic, or even a turn on. It's only when the basic commitment is threatened that things go so wrong.

Intensely Private

I once lived with a Scorpio couple for six months -- a friend and her boyfriend. They were generous and very welcoming, and I never saw them argue. It was only later on, when the disturbing images showed up in her artwork, that the deeper dynamics were expressed (to me). There were intense issues of feeling trapped, of being in a dark world devoid of color. Scorpio couples love in the shadow world, as well as the light. And perhaps this brings more risks, of being in the underworld together.

Scorpios in this way are very shamanic, but this has dangers, since real shamans know how to kill as well as heal. A base of trust and commitment to move through life, whatever it brings, will be severely tested. A Scorpio is used to extremes and even drawn to them. Much will depend on timing (maturity), and self-awareness, for the Scorpio-Scorpio pair to move through many seasons of life.

Commitment

Scorpio is naturally jealous (and sometimes paranoid), and they'll need mutual reassurance of monogamy. Betrayal of any kind is the death knell for the Scorpio couple, and the writhing demise is often a long, drawn-out, embittering affair. It may be hard to separate, keeping them locked in and fighting as exes. There's a strange hold, and cord cutting ceremonies -- visualizing the ties being cut -- might do the trick.

Another scenario is they keep going on and on in a relationship that's making them miserable. Having merged on every level, it's hard to say good-bye. It's hard for Scorpio to forgive and forget, too.

But the Scorpio couple gets each other in a way nobody else can. They can draw out the hidden gifts, and be supportive in just the right way. Sex can be where they renew the bond, and feel as close as two people can. With one look, they communicate volumes.

They are deeply involved parents that have a combined sixth sense that's spooky. Scorps tend to put their all in their life's work, and this too, is an are where mutual support keeps them in good form.

Scorpio engages the poetic romantic soul in the other, and allows those defenses to come down. As security clearances are granted, over time, more of the soulful core is shared.

Two Scorpios create a tender, edgy, brutal, soulful love atmosphere, with the relationship becoming an entity as enigmatic as they are. Unless the waters grow too tainted, it's one that's made to last.

What kind of Scorpio-Scorpio relationship will it be? That depends on the rest of the birth chart, and how planets clash or harmonize.
