The scorpion, the symbol of Sagittarius and one of the signs best known for its zodiacal connection to love, is also a creature with an insatiable appetite. What does this mean? And why do they have such intense romantic connections in their relationships?
The scorpion, the symbol of Sagittarius and one sign best known for its zodiacal connection to love, is also a creature with an insatiable appetite.
In the animal kingdom, it doesn’t get more potent than the scorpion – a tiny arachnid with claws capable of delivering potentially deadly stings. But it’s not only that. In mythology, the scorpion was also associated with cunning, mystery, and betrayal.
This makes sense when you consider that most scorpions live at high elevations, where they can hide from predators and survive on very little food.
A Steely Look
When we look into the eyes of a scorpion, there’s nothing playful, nothing gentle. If anything, we see a steely stare ready to deliver a fatal sting. The same thing happens when you meet a scorpion’s gaze. You feel like you’re staring down a cold-blooded killer.
But here’s the thing: even though scorpions have the power to kill, they are the most docile creatures around. They aren’t aggressive by nature and don’t attack unless provoked.
This is because scorpions have evolved to become masters of survival. They eat whatever is available to them, whether a tiny insect they catch with their pincers or a larger prey animal – including birds, lizards, mice, rodents, and snakes – to stay alive. Their diet consists entirely of insects, worms, and other invertebrates.
They hunt these small animals by using vibrations to detect their presence. When a scorpion detects movement close to its body, it curls up into a ball and raises its tail above its back. This posture gives off a bad vibe, alerting any nearby animals to keep their distance. Once an animal gets too close to the scorpion, it will usually run away.
Scorpions have excellent vision, which allows them to spot small prey items from far away. Scorpions have two sets of pinchers, one on each side of their abdomen, that they use to catch their prey. These specialized appendages are designed to grab onto their game and inject venom through the pincher tips, killing it before it can escape.
An Intense Emotional Connection
Scorpions are naturally solitary, so they rarely form relationships with other species. However, if you happen to cross paths with one while hiking, fishing, camping, or even going to the beach, you might find yourself drawn to its gaze; it could be that your encounter with a scorpion has sparked some attraction between you.
Or perhaps your curiosity has made you want to learn more about the creature so that you may take a closer look at it.
However, the truth is that the scorpion probably isn’t interested in forming a relationship with you, either. Even though they exhibit a predatory mentality, scorpions are pretty shy. They prefer to avoid human contact at all costs.
They generally prefer to live alone and do everything they can to remain hidden from humans who might try to harm them. That said, it doesn’t mean that a scorpion won’t make friends once you’ve made it comfortable to interact with you.
If a scorpion feels comfortable enough to spend time with you, it will likely choose to hang out near you. There are several reasons for this. First, scorpions are naturally curious creatures. They will seek new experiences, and hanging out with you is a great way to expand their horizons.
Second, scorpions are social animals, and when they spend time with other creatures, they tend to trust each other. Because of this, they’ll feel safer in your company and, therefore, less likely to sting you.
But what precisely about scorpions draws people to them so strongly? Why are Scorpios so passionate about them?
Their Secretive Nature
It’s difficult to say precisely why Scorpios are so drawn to scorpions. However, one reason may be that they share many common traits with the arachnids. Scorpions are secretive individuals, so it makes sense that a Scorpio would enjoy keeping things private.
In addition to this, Scorpios are notorious for hiding their emotions. So when a Scorpio meets someone with similar characteristics, they may be attracted to them because they think they could be kindred spirits.
Another possible explanation for Scorpios’ fascination with scorpions is that they might find the creatures interesting. Maybe they like that scorpions are complex, independent creatures that aren’t afraid to show their true colors.
As mentioned earlier, scorpions are natural hunters. They are brilliant, and they can recognize patterns in their surroundings. This means they can quickly identify and go after a potential meal item. Scorpions are also very good at using camouflage to blend in with their environment.
As a result, they are incredibly well-equipped to navigate their world without drawing attention to themselves.
Because of this, it may seem counterintuitive that Scorpions are so shy and introverted, but the fact remains that these traits help protect them from predators while allowing them to remain inconspicuous in their everyday lives.
So, now that you know all about Scorpios’ relationship with scorpions, let’s talk a bit about what drives a Scorpio to connect with them. Scorpions are secretive, cautious, and independent by nature. For this reason, it stands to reason that Scorpios would have difficulty connecting with others in a meaningful way. So, what exactly makes these types of relationships work for Scorpios?
It helps if both parties can accept each other’s differences. A Scorpio needs space to recharge its batteries, and a scorpion appreciates solitude. The scorpion’s natural habitat is high altitudes. It tends to favor rocky terrain over sandy beaches, so if you’re meeting up with a scorpion, you should expect to travel to higher elevations.
This is because the scorpion prefers to live in cool, damp, and dark places–conditions found at higher altitudes. So, if you’re planning on visiting a site with many scorpions, you should bring the proper gear.
When you first meet a scorpion, it’s important to remember that it’s not interested in playing games. It wants to do what it needs to do to survive and won’t hesitate to strike if it thinks it’s necessary. Therefore, you shouldn’t approach a scorpion with hostility.
Instead, it would be best to attempt to communicate with it calmly. If you succeed, you might eventually earn its trust and affection. At that point, you can start making plans to play together.
You’ll be fine if you respect the scorpion’s boundaries. Just be sure to leave the scorpion alone when you’re done playing. Otherwise, the scorpion might decide to strike you instead!
