What Happens When A Scorpio Man Gets Mad?
Zodiac

One of the most feared zodiac signs in astrology is Scorpio, and nothing is scarier than an angry  Scorpio man.

Ruled by Pluto and Mars, two of the malefic planets in astrology, Scorpio zodiac signs are people born between October 23 - November 21.

You don't even have to know their birth date to identify a Scorpio. Just look into their eyes. It's easy to spot one.

Scorpio men are loyal, loving, and private peaceful people unless something violates their sense of trust.

When a Scorpio feels betrayed, disrespected, or personally attacked, that's when you will see the dark side of their horoscope's astrology.

What happens when a Scorpio man gets mad?

Scorpios are known for being intense and intimidating, so imagine this same emotional force applied toward the expression of anger.

Scorpios are water signs, meaning they are rooted in their emotions, but consider the astrological glyph and their animal archetype

Scorpio is represented by the scorpion, which protects its sensitive interior with a hard external shell that ends with a stinger. 

This dynamic of being sensitive and sweet, yet possessing the power to retaliate when threatened can be especially difficult for Scorpio men because of the societal pressures to not show emotion.

They want to fight back, which is a natural reaction when you've been hurt by someone you love. 

Often when a Scorpio man gets angry, they do a few things to cover up their deeper emotions. Some sulk. Others refuse to show their hurt feelings outright.

Scorpio men, especially mad Scorpio men, should not be messed with, and when they do get upset, it is best to diffuse the situation the best you can rather than stoke the flames.

Here’s what happens when a Scorpio man gets mad, per astrology:

1. Scorpios say mean things.

Scorpio men know your emotional weaknesses, so they will attack where you can be hurt the most (permanently).

Scorpios are very perceptive and don’t beat around the bush when it comes to getting to know people.

Because of this, they know exactly what buttons to push when someone makes them angry.

If a Scorpio man is set off they can verbally attack you without a moment’s hesitation.

Their observations are tucked away in their minds until they need them, let’s just hope they use them for good.

They may regret what they say later, but they’ll rarely if ever, admit it.

2.  When angry, a Scorpio man will argue.

Scorpio men may fight when angry.

Scorpios are ruled by the planet Mars, the god of war.

That planetary influence coupled with the societal conditioning of men using violence rather than other outlets for their emotions can result in physical fighting.

I by no means condone this, nor do I think that all Scorpio men behave this way, but it is a possibility to be cautious of.

Of course, situations can affect whether a Scorpio man decides to behave this way; they may redirect their anger at someone or something else, like boxing.

3. They focus on other things.

Scorpio men will put their anger into art or a tattoo. 

Scorpios are very creative, and while they may not let their deeper emotions be known with their words, they will make art out of them.

That’s right, Frank Ocean is a Scorpio, and you can feel the emotion he puts into his songs.

Art is their outlet to really come to terms with their anger after their initial angry burst.

It gives Scorpios something to deal with their anger in a constructive way rather than destructive.

4. They ghost you.

Scorpio men may disappear for a while. Scorpio men may cut you out of their lives.

Sometimes Scorpio men may feel like they do not have an appropriate outlet for their anger, so they’ll just ghost everyone from their lives, not just who or whatever made them upset.

As a water sign, Scorpios are contemplative and may need time to just be on their own.

They want to remove themselves from what hurts them as well as anything that could hurt them, so disappearing for some solitude may be their solution for that.

5. He gives up.

Scorpios hold grudges, and loyalty means everything to them. If you betray a Scorpio man’s trust, you won’t be able to earn it back.

They are picky about who they let into their lives, and if you prove to them that they made a mistake about letting you get close to them, they will not make that same mistake again.

Scorpios are a fixed sign meaning that they are very steady in their beliefs and do not change their minds easily.

Even if you think you can somehow win them back, Scorpio men won’t give you the time of day to even try to make your case.
