Scorpio people are notoriously hot. But what is it that makes them so damn attractive? What is the key to their alluring appeal?

Here are Scorpio’s eight most attractive traits:

1. Their edgy mystery

We’re all drawn to mystery, and Scorpios have this poised demeanor that radiates complexity and gripping emotional depth. Their eyes are magnetic, and their energy is intense and dark.

All it takes is a loaded glance from Scorpio to get our minds whirring, wondering what’s going on behind the curtains of their mind. 

What’s behind that reserved appearance? They seem so calm, collected, and dignified – but why do they feel so intimidating and intense at the same time? There’s this subtle danger to them which adds to their magnetism.

While most people are open books, Secretive Scorpio keeps us guessing. They make you want to be the one they share their secrets with. And that’s hot.

2. Their passionate intensity

Scorpios are truly unmatched in this area. The sheer depth of their passions and personality traits is one of the most attractive qualities of any one of the sun signs. They all tend to have this smoldering, intense, sexy look.

Scorpios need emotionally intense experiences to feel vital and alive. They love to work hard and play hard. Taking it easy doesn’t come naturally to those born under this sign.

They live life in black and white terms. If they’re in, they’re all in. Their endpoint is always complete immersion in the person or object of their interest. They want to burn away all pretense, uncover every aspect, and make the unconscious conscious.

This depth and intensity lead them to live every minute as if it were their last. And this passion draws to them many loyal friends and admirers.

3. Their tenacity

Scorpio is one of the four Fixed-natured Zodiac signs, and boy, are these people steadfast and determined. They tend to follow through and finish what they start.

Scorpios aren’t feeble or vacillating like so many others. They are decidedly gritty with a strong backbone. This enables them to achieve more and achieve higher than most other signs.

It’s very hot to see a Scorpio’s boldness and ability to take a stand for something. It shows resiliency and a force of character that shows faith in their ability to face criticism and beat the odds.

Their tremendous willpower and determination are enviable, and their ability to see right to the heart of a matter, together with their driving force of will, makes them a force to be reckoned with.

A highly developed Scorpio is a great motivator that can be a tremendous force for good in the world. They’re also unshakeable loyal, and protective. And this “ride or die” quality of theirs is beyond attractive.

4. Their self-control

True reserve and self-control are increasingly elusive traits in modern culture. It’s impressive, then, to see Scorpio’s potent ability to hide their intense emotions and maintain a “still waters run deep” aire about them.

Even when a Scorpio has deep currents of emotional energy flowing beneath the surface (which they often do), they can still be very controlled and not reveal anything that they don’t want to.

This ability is instinctively attractive, as it shows their fortitude and ability to stand firm and keep up appearances in the face of debilitating challenges.

5. Their desire for deep intimacy

The core drive behind the ever-desirous Scorpio is a want of intense intimacy with life, particularly emotional intimacy. These people have a depth of emotion and passion that knocks you out when it comes to the surface.

They’re helplessly drawn to form close emotional ties deep enough to merge spirit and soul. They want to connect on a level where all protective armoring can be dropped, and the profound mystery of connection can unfold from a place of deep trust. 

This is fairy-tell-level soul-bonding we’re speaking about. And Scorpio energy provides the catalyst to opening the doors to a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual union that’s entirely transformative and deeply soothing to the soul.

Once you’ve connected on this level with a deep and sensitive Scorpio, you can’t help but see Scorpio as a sign that’s worthy of respect. The level of focus they place on you is intoxicating.

You also won’t be able to treat life the same, knowing that it’s possible to escape the disappointments and tensions of mundane, everyday living as you have with Scorpio.

Feeling nakedly exposed under the intense gaze of a Scorpio can undoubtedly be unnerving – but the experience of dropping all pretense, all vanity, all ambition with one in a state of alert and focused merging is an allure that’s hard to forget.

6. Their wise intelligence

Smart is sexy. And Scorpio’s mind can hang with the best of the best. 

Even though Scorpio is a water sign known for high emotionality, Scorpio also possesses keen intellectual knowledge. They’re deep thinkers and can go to the depths of any conversational topic. 

They have great common sense and make keen judges, especially when it comes to the judgment of character. Their keep perceptiveness makes them well suited as detectives or investigative journalists.

Their mind is sharp, and they can decisively and clearly articulate a thought. They also have acid-like, sarcastic humor that’s gripping and full of wit. 

For Scorpio, it doesn’t stop at well-formed cognition. These people tend to be able to tap into at least some level of clairvoyance, and the more adept ones are tuned into some peculiar psychic faculties. This is why occultism often appeals to them.

Oh, and they’re highly astute investors and gatherers of resources. They know how to make (and spend) money well. This is all, of course, very attractive.

7. Their Sexual charisma

Scorpio is the ruler of the sex organs, and these people tend to overflow with raw sexual energy. Their sex appeal is quiet yet exciting. It emanates from their whole being but is particularly apparent in their eyes. 

From a very early age, Scorpio recognizes that sex is power and can be used in many ways. They learn early on how to control their sexual nature. And later in life, many use this sexual self-control to channel it into higher spiritual development. 

In bed, Scorpio is a master technician. Their passion, perceptiveness, and adaptability allow them to satisfy just about any lover. They’re entirely penetrating, and their primal, territorial vibe that ripples through you is altogether intoxicating.

8. Their transformative potential

A person with potential and who seeks constant growth is inherently sexy.

Scorpios are the type never to rest content with their accomplishments. They always want to grow and transform themselves into something more significant.

They’re constantly seeking out intense experiences to be transformed by them and grow. Their desire to change is built into the symbolism of their sign. They have five symbols, after all! The Scorpion, the Serpent, the Eagle, the Dove, and the Pheonix. 

Scorpio is downright potent. The sign taps into deep alchemical processes of life and death. Their rich emotional lives constantly morph and evolve, leaving old feelings to die and new ones to be reborn.

Of course, this is all super exciting to be around for partners of Scorpios. Your life will not be boring if you’re sharing it with a Scorpio. That is for sure!

And you’d better be willing to go through the rollercoaster of personal change yourself, too. Scorpios are not afraid to call a friend, family member, or lover out on their shit, which is something many of us need in our lives.

Once Scorpios start to evolve past their ego and achieve personal calm, they can be a stabilizing, balancing force for humanity. These high-level Scorpios are true healers, and with their deep insight into what goes on beneath the surface, they make for potent and attractive humans. 

So if you’re after someone with tremendous growth potential and a compulsive desire to go through deep inner work, then Scorpio might be the one for you.
