I'm a Scorpio rising, Pluto in Scorpio in the first. I tend to have bouts of silence when interacting with people, but it's more of a not needing to react thing. I prefer listening for awhile. If I'm angry, I don't stay silent, but maybe that's an influence from my Libran Moon. I really agree with LibraSparkle- if I'm in an argument with someone, and they want me to react, I won't, because I know how much ignoring spites people.

I do that **** for number one, I don't like small talk, I'd rather talk off on the deep end. And I spend a lot of time absorbing information and reading people.

aries tiger. most of the time it means he is not ready with an answer and as we know scorpio never makes haste so he observes silence as a sort and tries to 'put' away the question temporarily.

it can also mean u crossed the line.

or that he is retrosepcting.

or that he is mediatating on the issue.

look at his eyes to get the answer. just don't get irritated. often other control freakish signs might want to break scorpio self control inderictly by using those near him as a tool.

and yes, it can also mean he has sensed something unusual.

I will always remain silent if I know no matter what I say, my words will be misconstrued as the other has already made up their minds. Its just a waste of energy.

Once the person is ready to listen to me, as opposed to just listening to themselves...then I will reopen all lines of communication.

Whenever I have spoken just to speak, I hate myself afterwards. Its something I really hate. Verbal diarrohea on my path. And I hate putting up with the verbal runs from others too. Something I am trying hard to eradicate forever.

But remaining silent to control a situation is being passive agressive...and is childishly mean.

Hello this is my first time posting but i an Aquarius w/scorp rising,.my freind is scorpio and he's giving me the silent treatment. I sent him a text message and no response from him. I left a message on his voice mail telling him hello and hope that he's doing good.Still no response. I'm so trying not to take this personal but maybe he just need some space. I think he's upset with me because i forgot to call him but why couldnt he have called me, it works both ways though,/i think he thinks i'm playin games at which i'm not,.if he would just talk to me and we communicate maybe i wouldnt take it so personal as if its all my fault or i did something wrong

Scorps seem to be going through something at the moment. Not sure what and to lazy to look it up.

Transits of Jupiter in Scorpio, Saturn in Leo, the Sun, Neptune & Mercury in Aquarius, and Mars in Taurus would all be working the Scorpios right now.

I personally used the "Scorpio Silences" when I was younger.. as in, school-aged. I've grown out of it, realizing that it's easier to talk about whatever problem the Scorpio's having with the "victim".

I have my moon in the 12th, so I *really* require silent time, time which I set aside in advance. I do it that way so that the people in my life are aware of it in advance, and don't take offense if I don't answer their phone calls/messages/texts.

When does the transits change? ScotScorp, that is very mature of you to handle as you do,.my scorpio b/f is 40 and to think if he has been suffering in silence for so many years,.i want to tell him So bad that i'm here for him,..but i just wait untill he calls me,*sigh*

MoonDuchess88,

I think it’s definitely a cancer thing too, but I think Cancer’s motivations for their silences are different. I tend to get very silent when my emotions are at their height. I need the silence to deal with my feelings – to wrestle them back into submission (maybe that’s the combination of my Cancer sun, and my more controlled Taurus moon though). My silence is at its worst when someone says something that hurts, angers, or worries me. The minute they do I start this internal monolog with myself trying to reason through why they just said what they did, and trying to decide what I should say or do. But I also have shy / quiet days where my wit is a bit low and I’m just not as talkative. I’ve never been quiet because I was uninterested in what someone had to say or because I felt I had nothing to add. I’ll generally just change the subject and take the conversation a different direction if things get awkward. I’d rather not hurt anyone’s feelings.

I find that sometimes my emotions are so thick that I don't feel words could even begin to explain myself. There's just a need for a certain amount of non-verbal communication. It replenishes us, but it's hard to know how to use it effectivly

I have scorp sun, merc, venus and neptune.
I think the silences mean different things in different moments.

Sometimes it's a hurt (or anger) deeper than I am prepared to show. It's just TOO damn much, and I need to process it before I can put it all into words.

Other times, I'm just observing. That's all. I had a b'friend who I would apparently drive crazy because I did not give him a play by play of my daily thoughts, musings, etc. He found it to be anti-social. I have a Gemini rising, so I can be "out there" and social as they come, when I want. But what my b'friend was missing was the fact that by observing (in lieu of dialogue), I learn a whole lot, and can form opinions, etc. I can sum things up pretty easily by LISTENING to what comes out of peoples mouths--and the way that they act. And yes, the need for downtime is essential. If I call my b'friend 6 days in a row, and not on the 7th day--it's just because I decided to recharge. Light a candle, take a bath, meditate and retire. Nothing more than that.

I appreciated reading the post that said, "scorps must be going through stuff" and went on to name all the squares, and mars opposition--I was like, OMG. It was good to read that, because lately I've been feeling more confrontational--but also insecure and jealous and low-self esteem in my relationship. And I'm normally pretty upbeat and insecurities are minimal. I guess the jealousy comes with this territory--our lesson this life is to overcome it, I guess. But it's gotten the better of me lately and I'm driving my scorpio b'friend up the walls--the last thing he wants me to imply is that he's not honorable. And I understand that.

Hi all,

i am taking my sag sun in 8 th house as an eligibility to comment on this thread 'scorpionic silence'
Surprising despite being a sag i find many ppl complaining esp my cancer wouldbe that i go into long silent spells which scares him!!..
My silence has many reasons..
an automatic self defence mechanism when my mind signals that it needs time to regain from a unpleasant thing , to muse, debate with myself ,ratinalise, take new resolutions about the way i have to behave for my wellbeing, wen i am sad hmmmmmmmmmmmmm btw is this silence bad or good ??????????????

AriesTiger:

When I was reading your post I remembered Aries guy and me together. I just realized that I don't have that energy to keep up (tired...I would be busy analyzing and thinking but wouldn't really want to react.) or sometimes he is talking with me something which is like Greek or Latin to me or unimportant.Although I would really like to talk more of personal stuff like family future and know him.I doubt that I have forgotten any conversation though.

Scorpio: So tell me about your family ?....(Little Personal stuff)
Aries: SILENCE
Scorpio: I guess you don't want to talk about it. SILENCE.
Aries: (reacts by lightly patting on shoulders) Now ! You don't want to talk about it.

We talked about it later.

What does Aries silence means there ? I know maybe they don't want to talk about it or something.

Over enthusiasm and Aries excitment might seem that he is being dominant on issue or controlling.It makes me feel uneasy but at times it's just that I am listening.

I also had a feeling that Aries guy hated me because he was upset for some small reason. Short temper.Aries Sun. I did talked about what I felt later and realized he really likes me. instead he thinks I blew him off.

What I mean is Scorpio silence sometime comes from we are unsure of people, we are analyzing your views and we are not sure what to answer or react so we rather keep silence. Sometimes we really want you to react to our self control.

I am just curious how much difference is there between Scorpio showing Emotions and Aries doing same? I don't get it.

Aries emotions are closer to the surface, and Cardinal, which means we possibly move more quickly between extreme states of mind. Whatever we want to express, we express more or less the moment we feel it. We are very excitable.

If an Aries is silent it's usually because of some very obvious reason; they are in a mood, or the subject in hand is a sore/delicate one, or they are a person of few words!!

Oh man I was just wondering this the other day...The scorp I am sitting here trying so HARD to get over did this yesterday at school. I walked up to him and said "Hey Garren."
Him: "Hey. What class are you going to?"
Me: "Health. You?"
Him: "Construction."
Then he turned the corner in an effort to lose me, but I grabbed his arm and said "Garren! Wait!" He turned and just stared at me with a completely blank expression. I didn't know what I was going to say to him! I couldn't even guess what was going on in his head. So we just kind of stared at each other for a moment, then finally I said "Why don't you ever call me anymore?"
He answered "Why don't you call me?" but it was in a monotone voice. He wasn't really asking me, he was just being his evil self. I was actually at a loss for words so I just kept looking at him trying to figure out his thoughts. It was useless . Then he walked away and I just stood there like some heartbroken, lovesick puppy.
I didn't even go to 2nd period because I didn't have a note nor did I want to be bombarded by the 'Awww what's the matter?' questions since it would be obvious I had been crying...

But, anyway, my point was that I had been wondering about the blank stares. I've gotten plenty of them from scorpios.

Aquarius, Pisces, Scorpio

Time is a wheel in constant motion
always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their youth
and wonder where those years have gone...
Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice
To sit it out or dance~ I hope you dance

It depends, but I know what you're talking about, because I'm like that myself. Most of the time it's like saying "the ball's in your court".. if it's something we object to, we'll say so, and sometimes when we're quiet it's because we're in disbelief...

Aqualady:
All the transits move out at varying times; I can't tell you exacts at the moment. Mercury is now in Pisces, since it's a fast moving planet...the other planets will move out varying months from now.

Squares are good for us fixed signs, IMHO. We've got to have something spur us into action. (Personally Saturn can take a leap into a different solar system-I already got beat up by my Saturn in Cancer....now it's playing with my early degree Leo Moon and will soon hit my Scorpio Sun, Mars and Venus. I do not like the ol' man!)

I'm sure your b/f appreciates and honors your interest in his mental well-being! I know my Virgo understands my lack of speech when it comes to my emotions. He accepts my short answers to his "How are you REALLY doing?" and doesn't push. He knows if I have the need to elaborate, I will. Being there for your Scorpio physically and mentally is all that you need to do.

The more you try and figure out the silence the less you end up knowing when it comes to Scorpio!!!

I am one (have four planets in scorpio) and I barely understand myself at times.

In general I am mostly silent when hurt. I go away to be alone when I'm in emotional pain. I need to reatreat. It isn't about punishing/ignoring anyone. Just about being alone.

Personally when I'm angry you'll know about it as I shout and verbalise but thats probably more my full fifth house!

The lady who said her scorpio mate was ignoring her when she texted. Let him be and I promise in his own time he'll just come back. You wait and see.
