The Infamous Scorpio Withdrawal
Once withdrawn, the one thing that will bring Scorpio back to you is if you past the test. A fight is rarely just ever a simple fight with Scorpio ..
You ticked them off or hurt them, and it's your punishment. Also, time for them to cool off to figure out their next move.
They are either silently raging or very disappointed.
Your best bet for reconciliation is to offer a sincere apology and allow time to cool off.
Sometimes it's necessary to withdraw so as to safe keep the deadly rage locked in it's cage. Nothing worse than unintentionally, rather unconsciously, letting loose on those closest
It's best not to rattle the Gorgon's cage.
I've been through this very seriously with a Scorpio friend a few years ago. She disappeared from my life... Many years after, she contacted me and ofered to talk. We talked. She told me she was very hurt in our relationship and couldn't continue it... We had a very honest dialogue and worked together to heal the wounds... We are now very close friends and we have a new foundation for our friendship, one we re-built together.
My SO is a Scorpio sun. We had fights in the past and a few times he give me the silent treatment... not cutting the relationship. But just shutting the doors, not letting me come close. It was not easy to get close again, but I waited patiently and I've learnt my lesson.
I know Scorpios suffer deeply if they reach the point of giving the silent treatment.
At least the ones I met don't play games at all, they are really into serios connection, but they need total honesty. The wonderful thing is they will love and accept you as you are.
Absolutely fascinating. Are their cases, though, where a Scorpio will detach/amputate themselves/give the silent treatment in order to punish themselves and not the person they've gone silent on? I can see that happening with major conflicts from the big hitters to personal planets, especially of there is a low self esteem marker.
Like Osiris Wife points out, though, it's folly to rattle the Gorgon's cage in any case... It's as foolish as putting your arm in the mouth of a wild lion... and certainly not the brightest idea out there. ?
