Scorpio Work Compatibility: Power Behind the Throne
Check out how each zodiac sign works best with Scorpios
By Tarot.com Staff
One of the most intense signs of the zodiac, Scorpios like you are forceful, strategic, and powerful. But remember, you don’t have to be right every time. You’re proud of your ability to get things done, and you can charm your coworkers into doing things your way. However, you don’t always like being in the limelight, so get ready to be the "power behind the throne."
JUMP TO A SIGN:
Scorpio and Aries
This is a potentially explosive partnership, especially if you ignore certain things about Aries. The fact is, this sign needs to be first in everything they do. Such an egotistical attitude can rub you the wrong way. However, it’s important to remember that by letting Aries assume center stage, you’ll be able to work behind the scenes. This can be of significant benefit for a secretive person like you, Scorpio. Neither one of you shies from conflict, making for some loud arguments. However, you can feel secure in knowing that you’ll always prevail in every argument. That’s because you’re a much better strategist than impulsive Aries. Instead of wasting your energy on arguments, why not channel it into tripling your productivity?
Scorpio and Taurus
Working with Taurus can give you both pleasure and pain. The pleasurable part comes from collaborating with someone who is reliable, calm, and thoughtful. The painful part involves dealing with a person who is stubborn, cautious, and tight with a dollar. If you’re going to reconcile your differences -- and there are many -- you’ll have to be the one to extend an olive branch. The hard-headed Bull is simply too stubborn to do so. You’re crafty enough to know that you will benefit much more from a friendly partnership than an adversarial one. Keep in mind that reverse psychology nearly always works with this sign. If you claim a purchase that you really want to make is too expensive, Taurus might buy it just to prove you wrong. Want to go into business together? You’d run a very successful wine shop together. Alternately, you’d make great accountants or insurance investigators.
Scorpio and Gemini
You’re as deep as an ocean, and Gemini is as shallow as a rain puddle. At least, that’s the way it may seem at first. Upon closer inspection, however, you’ll detect this sign’s hidden depths. True, Gemini has difficulty staying focused, but he or she is adept at multi-tasking. This can be a tremendous advantage to someone like you who prefers to concentrate on one job at a time. Your colleague has a vast array of information at their fingertips, too. Chances are, this partner will know just where you can find certain facts and figures. Yes, Gemini’s chattiness will drive you to distraction, while your dark moods will make Gemini want to scream. Still, your marked differences will make the division of labor a snap. If you’re thinking of going into business together, consider investigative journalism. Alternately, you can run a successful messenger service.
Scorpio and Cancer
This can be an extremely fulfilling partnership that brings you both success. The Crab is protective, caring, and intuitive, while you’re private, passionate, and perceptive. You won’t have to explain away your brooding silences to this colleague. Cancer will anticipate your mood, offering comfort in the form of coffee, tea, or cocoa. Similarly, you’ll have no trouble coping with this sign’s legendary crabbiness, bringing a reluctant smile to Cancer’s face with a nasty joke or sarcastic comment. The two of you enjoy work that is utterly absorbing, and would do well as scuba diving teachers, midwives, or social workers. If you’re working for an employer, let the Crab assume executive responsibilities, while you operate behind the scenes.
Scorpio and Leo
You’ll never be bored with a Lion for a colleague. The two of you are stubborn as mules and have totally different priorities. While Leo likes to occupy center stage, you like to remain hidden in shadows. Whereas the Lion takes a straightforward approach, you prefer working beneath the radar. When this sign is focused on style, you’re obsessed with substance. Do you have any similarities? Actually, yes. You’re both extremely passionate and need to love what you do. In addition, the two of you are really responsible and are capable of handing tremendously taxing jobs. If you can manage to stroke Leo’s ego, they’ll afford you the privacy you crave. the two of you could find great success as real estate developers, jewelers, or filmmakers. Work for an employer? Let Leo grab all the glory, while you wield true power from behind the curtain.
Scorpio and Virgo
Working with Virgo is like a breath of fresh air for you. You appreciate this sign’s ability to anticipate your needs, and how they tend to irksome jobs that would otherwise break your stride. Conversely, the Virgin appreciates your serious attitude toward work, taking comfort in the knowledge that you can be trusted with even the heaviest responsibilities. Your moods may get on Virgo’s nerves at times, while this sign’s nitpicking can drive you crazy. Still, these annoyances will seem relatively minor. If you work together, you should let your colleague handle the day-to-day operations, while you handle tough jobs that require strategy or confrontation. Want to go into business for yourselves? You could succeed in may areas, including computer programming, market research, or physiotherapy.
Scorpio and Libra
Libra relies on their charisma to get through life, but you’re not fooled by their winning smiles and cunning winks. What matters to you is the quality of a person’s work. Fortunately, Libra is gifted in many areas, with art, diplomacy, and analysis among them. If you leave your self-imposed shell to work alongside Libra, your colleague will meet your impeccable standards. Resist the urge to nag this sign into doing as you wish -- Libra has a knack for avoiding troublesome or tiring jobs. That being said, your colleague takes delight in doing jobs that you find unpleasant, including warmly welcoming clients, fussing with details, and shameless promotion. The two of you could combine forces to form a successful public relations firm, talent agency, or car dealership.
Scorpio and Scorpio
Working with a fellow Scorpio comes as a huge relief for you. You never have to worry about bearing the brunt of hard work with this sign around. Scorpio is famous for doing whatever is necessary to bring a job to completion. Similarly, your sign’s uncanny intuition makes it easy for your colleague to anticipate when you need help. Will there be storms ahead? Naturally -- you Scorpions are lightning rods for conflicts. You’re both intense, possessive, and jealous. If either one of you suspects the other of having divided loyalties, a fight will erupt. Take every opportunity to express your admiration and gratitude for your colleague. If you decide to go into business together, you may consider detective work, research, or medicine.
Scorpio and Sagittarius
Don’t let Sagittarius’ goofy ways distract you from recognizing this sign’s value as a worker. Your colleague’s tendency to make a joke of everything doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in you, but that doesn’t mean Sagittarius is tremendously capable. You can count on the Archer to pitch in wherever an extra pair of hands is needed, whether it’s making coffee or presiding over meetings. That being said, you can’t depend on Sagittarius to be discreet. So if you’re going to keep secrets -- and as a Scorpio, you naturally will want to -- never confide in this blabbermouth. It’s not that Sagittarius is malicious, it’s just that they can’t keep silent. If you go into business with this sign, consider selling sports equipment, adventure travel packages, or imported merchandise.
Scorpio and Capricorn
Ambitious Capricorn only fuels your fire for hard work. The two of you have the makings of a very powerful work partnership, particularly if you yield to the Goat’s sound financial advice. No other sign is as capable of building a fortune or profitable business. Your strength is in outsmarting the competition, researching new work methodologies, and digging up prospective customers. At times, you will take offense to Capricorn’s insecurity, while they’ll question your low moods. Still, if you can overlook each other’s weak points, you could make a great deal of money ... while having a whole lot of fun. The two of you could find great success as architects, builders, or real estate managers.
Scorpio and Aquarius
Independent Aquarius makes for a frustrating work partner. You need lots of support from a colleague, and the Water-bearer may not be apt to give it. On the other hand, Aquarius likes to be encouraged to take risks, and you’re not especially eager to fuel these flights of fancy. Is there a middle ground you can tread? Yes, if you’re willing to praise this sign’s innovative approach. In return, you’ll be given the respect and reverence you deserve. The two of you do share an interest in humanitarian causes and could run a successful nonprofit organization. Alternately, you could make strides in ecological research or medical science. If you’re working for an employer, let Aquarius generate the ideas while you compile facts and figures that will make these concepts more palatable to the public.
Scorpio and Pisces
This can be a highly successful work partnership, given that you and Pisces have so much in common. You both trust your hearts more than your heads. Furthermore, you require work that is emotionally involving, and each of you is highly creative. Pisces is better able to cope with sudden emergencies, while you’re more suited to long-term projects. If someone has to battle with the powers that be, you can step up to the plate since the Fish shies from conflict. If a situation requires compassion, Pisces should do the honors. Opening your own business could be sheer bliss, especially if you open a lingerie boutique. Alternately, you could find success as part of a film crew or medical team.
