Scorpio and Leo are extremely passionate, sensual, and devoted individuals. Leo is a Fire sign, and when combined with Scorpio’s intense and emotional Waters, this duo often finds themselves the center of attention, leading the pack with their confidence and power. The attraction that Leo and Scorpio feels is undeniable. They are magnetically tied to one another, even though their relationship can sometimes vacillate between hate and love.
Leo and Scorpio are likely to have an explosive and passionate relationship, physically, mentally, and spiritually. They both can be very competitive and sometimes even aggressive with one another. They like to challenge each other, for better or for worse. These two are attracted to each other like magnets, and there can be an obsessive and addicting quality to their attraction and overall relationship.
One of the most positive aspects of this compatibility is that neither sign will ever be bored with each other. They know each other’s ins and outs, and although Scorpio may sometimes get frustrated with Leo’s impulsive or egoistical antics, Scorpio is also highly intrigued and fascinated by them. Leo can be the ultimate force in Scorpio’s eyes. Strong, confident, capable, proud and respectful. When deeply attached, Leo treats Scorpio like royalty and makes them feel incredible. This makes it easy for Scorpio to return the devotion and respect Leo’s way. Leo appreciates how intensely loyal and devoted Scorpio is, for they find that to be a very rare trait.
Scorpio is prone to getting jealous and overly possessive. Leo can be equally possessive, but tends to have an even bigger ego than Scorpio, so they will not always admit what they view as their less attractive feelings openly. Leo being a Fire sign, has impulsive and quickly passive emotions. Leo can live in a self-centered universe and expect their needs to be attended to first. In order to maintain harmony in their relationship with Scorpio, Leo must practice empathy and be less judgmental of Scorpio’s complex or changing moods.
Both Leo and Scorpio want to have the upper hand in the relationship by making it appear as though they care less than they actually do. There may therefore be many power struggles and ego conflicts in this partnership. These two should take extra care to not play games in love, for Scorpio takes romance very seriously and Leo does not tolerate any disrespect. Rather than focusing on who is right, these two should focus on how to love and treat each other right, and everything else will into place. A Scorpio-Leo relationship is hit or miss, depending on whether both signs choose to make the emphasis of their pairing love, or war.
