Scorpios value trust above all else. Betraying or embarrassing a Scorpio is often an irredeemable offense and in some cases will make you an enemy for life. Despite the stereotypes, this is not because Scorpios are unusually cruel or irrational, but because trust is so precious and challenging to them that a violation of it, once given, is exceptionally painful. When a wounded Scorpio shows behavior that appears vindictive or vengeful, it’s simply an indicator of how deep the injury runs.
A Scorpio’s acts of retaliation are not petty or spiteful in intent; to the wronged Scorpio, it is about not just giving an offender his or her due but about restoring order to their own shaken world after experiencing such harm. A common complaint about this largely misunderstood sign is critical not necessarily of their eye-for-an-eye worldview when betrayed– Scorpios tend to make it crystal clear that you break their trust at your peril– but the scale of their response. As justified as it might feel at the time, the term “swatting flies with a sledgehammer” wouldn’t be a completely inaccurate description.
