Scorpios are known for their possessive personality traits.

And because they rule things like secrets, taboos it makes them protective of themselves and others.

Even though they can come off as dark or moody, they are deeply in touch with their emotions, which is why their reaction to negative events is so strong.

They are easier to offend than other zodiac signs, especially if you hurt someone that they love.

Scorpios are passionate about their feelings and many don't hesitate to hold a grudge.

If you intentionally hurt a Scorpio, they will tune you out, ghost you, or distance themselves as a result.

Luckily, we’ve narrowed down what to do when this happens to you so you can get your relationship back on track.

Here's what to do when a Scorpio ignores you:

1. Give them space.

When they first start ignoring you it’s important to give them some time alone.

The wound is fresh for them at this point and trying to fix things too soon will only make matters worse.

Avoid trying to rapidly patch things up with the Scorpio and let them process their emotions.

Reaching out too soon could cause them to say things they don't mean and create irreversible damage.

Try sending a text saying that you understand that they need their space and that you’re ready to talk when they are.

This will let them know that you care but still give them time to process their emotions.

Waiting for them to relax a bit is the best way to navigate your dispute. 

2. Don’t make things about you.

It can be easy to think that once it’s time to talk you should both express how you feel but don’t.

Telling a Scorpio your side of things will only push them away more and upset them.

Instead, try actively listening to their concerns.

Express understanding and offer solutions that will show them you have their best interest at heart.

Once you have shown empathy and expressed your willingness to make a change, then it's okay to voice your side.

Just be cautious that you don't sound as though you are making up excuses.

3. Keep your emotions controlled.

Listening to the Scorpio tell you why they are upset can cause you to become defensive, especially if you don’t think you’re in the wrong.

Don’t let these emotions show through or they may start ignoring you again.

Take a deep breath and when they’re done, calmly explain your side and apologize for hurting their feelings.

Try to really see where they are coming from and remember that even if it wasn't your intention, their feelings are hurt. 

Try talking to them in the same way you would want someone to talk to you if you were hurt.

This will go a long way in showing that you care about their feelings.

4. Reach out to them.

After giving them a few days of space, be the bigger person, and reach out.

This might not go perfectly but deep down they will appreciate that you contacted them.

When a Scorpio is upset to the point of ignoring you it will be really hard for them to swallow their pride and text you.

If you don’t reach out, you could be waiting around forever.

If you do eventually take the first step of reaching out to them, they will secretly be relieved that you did.

While they are upset with you, they still care about their relationship with you and will ultimately want to fix things.

5. Move on.

Once you have reconciled your relationship with the Scorpio, explain to them that you aren’t okay with being ignored.

Let them know that you would rather talk things out proactively.

After making that clear, be sure to avoid whatever behavior caused them to ignore you in the first place.

Now you will both have known boundaries and be able to engage in a healthy relationship.

This conversation will ensure that you don't have unnecessary disputes.

It will become a blueprint for how you both expect to be treated.

6. Show them how it feels.

If you’ve tried all of the above and they’re still giving you the cold shoulder, ignore them right back.

A taste of their own medicine might be what it takes to make them snap out of their childish ways.

Eventually, they will reach out and might even owe an apology of their own.

It's one thing to be upset with someone but if they are actively trying to fix things with you, there is only so much ignoring you can do before you become the one in the wrong.

Don't torture yourself trying to get them to accept your apology.

Do what you can and then throw the ball in their court by telling them that you've tried but you won't continue to beg for them to talk to you.

Someone who truly wants to fix things with you won't make you beg for a proactive conversation with them.
