As a Scorpio, I often get asked if I’m controlling.
The answer is no and yes, but don’t worry – it’s not always a bad thing!
It’s true that Scorpios can be very determined and set in their ways, but there are many reasons why this is the case.
Let’s look at why Scorpios are so controlling and why it might actually be beneficial.
1. They are determined and set in their ways
When a Scorpio sets their mind to something, they will stop at nothing to achieve their goal.
This determination makes them excellent leaders and motivators but it can also lead to them trying to control everything around them.
As they strive for success, they don’t want any outside factors getting in the way.
2. They don’t like surprises, so they are always trying to control the situation
Scorpios need to know what is going on at all times and if something unexpected happens in their life it can throw them off balance.
As a result, they might try to control the situation by planning ahead or taking charge of any potential issues.
That way, if anything does come up unexpectedly, they feel prepared and in control.
3. They don’t like feeling vulnerable
Feeling vulnerable is something that no one enjoys but for Scorpios, it can be especially difficult as it often leads to defensive behavior such as wanting to control every aspect of the situation they’re in.
In order to protect themselves from any potential hurts or disappointments, they may try to micromanage things and keep a tight leash on those around them.
4. They like structure and being organized
Scorpios tend to thrive on structure and having everything organized because they believe this leads directly toward achieving success.
By keeping things orderly, they feel safe and secure in knowing that nothing will get “out of hand” or interfere with their plans for success.
As such, organization is key when dealing with a controlling Scorpio–their need for structure knows no bounds!
5. Jealousy or possessiveness
While not all Scorpios are jealous or possessive by nature, some definitely are which can lead them into controlling situations out of fear of losing someone or something important in their life.
If there is an issue that could potentially create conflict between two people, a controlling Scorpio might step in before things get out of hand — just as an instinctual protective measure.
For A Scorpio Control isn’t Always Bad
Scorpios are just like a lot of us; they want peace, stability, and security in their lives.
It’s only a little bit more obvious for them because of the intensity of their zodiac sign!
Regardless if you’re a Scorpio or not, know that it is normal to want control over some areas of life.
But don’t forget to let the universe take its course too!
After all, who knows how things might come out in the long run?
Finding a balance between taking control is necessary for your life and allowing destiny to flow freely will create amazing results.
