Leo - Scorpio Love Compatibility

Leo and Scorpio are the fifth and eighth signs of the zodiac calendar. Interestingly it is because of several similar rather than diverging personality traits that romantic compatibility between these two signs seems a tough proposition. In the end chances of the couple being together depend upon whether they are able to unite their powers to work as a team or use them to undermine each other.

Both Leo and Scorpio are alike in their pride and unwavering belief in their own capabilities. In the case of Leo, this self-confidence is hardly surprising since they bear the symbol of the Lion – the king of the jungle – who’s every word is law and who rules by the sheer force of their strength. Moreover the sign is ruled by the Sun – the center of the solar system and the heavenly body which holds all other planets in its thrall. The Scorpio too is an extremely self-assured personality, possessing not only a brilliant mind as is only natural for anybody ruled by the planet Saturn but also a keen intuitive power of a Water sign which is able to look through appearances into the very heart of reality. What this strength of personality and self-confidence in both signs means for their relationship is that once they make up their minds to be together, they will let little come in their way. Each will go all out to woo the other and rest only when their attempts are met with success.

However where the two signs differ from each other is the way their strong personalities are expressed. The Lion, true to his/her nature likes to live life king-size and the magnetic force of their personality is expressed in the way they assume leadership in difficult situations and attract people around them even under the most mundane of circumstances. The Scorpio on the other hand is much more discrete about the strength of their personality to the point of being secretive. They rarely let anyone guess the intensity of their feelings and their immense capacity for love, hatred, power, revenge and other such extreme motivations. Thus both are capable of feeling deeply and intensely and they differ only in the manner their emotions are expressed. This is also why when things begin to go bad for the Lion and Scorpion couple, there is no saying where the cycle of attack and counter-attack will lead to and how much destruction it will cause.

The only way forward for this pair is to allow each other ample breathing space and not overwhelm one another with their excessive demands in love. Once the Leo and Scorpio join hands, they will emerge as a formidable couple and within easy reach of the pinnacle of social and professional success.

Leo Man and Scorpio Woman

Among the things to first attract the Leo man and Scorpio woman to each other will be a mutual recognition of the strong personalities that each possesses. The male Lion will marvel at the quiet and unwavering determination of the female Scorpion as she goes about her business of accumulating power while the latter will be impressed by the immense courage and the natural leadership qualities that the former possesses. Their mutual attraction will not be the result of a desire for a pleasant companion to while away an evening but rather the deep connection that comes from recognizing and appreciating each other’s qualities.

When the male Lion and female Scorpio come together in love, it will be an explosion of passion and sensuality. This is because both signs have a healthy libido and need to have passionate sex in order to feel reassured in their love lives. While for the Leo, sex is a way of expressing their passionate natures as well as a need for dominance, for the Scorpio it is yet another way to bring about an intense connection with a partner. If one of the partners had belonged to other signs like a detached Libra or a fastidious Virgo, the other might have had to rein in their sex drives for fear of overwhelming their partners. But with each other the Leo and Scorpio need not worry about how much is too much.

However if this couple is looking at a long-term relationship, there are certain issues they will have to learn to deal with. And primary among them is a need for the upper hand in a relationship. While the Leo openly believes that he knows the best and expects his partner - like everybody else - to fall in tune, the Scorpio woman has her own set of opinions and priorities which she is not willing to sacrifice for anyone. This clash of the egos might prove to be devastating if both the partners do not agree to take turns to give in and be more accommodating of the other’s viewpoints.

Leo Woman and Scorpio Man

On their initial encounter the male Scorpio will be swept away by the vivacity of the female Lion while the latter will be intrigued by the calm self-assurance of the former. Both will recognize in each other a strong, courageous and determined personality and thus respect one another all the more for it.

However very soon the Scorpio man might get irked by the Leo woman’s constant demand for attention. He is himself a discrete and reserved man and does not understand why someone who is genuinely worthy needs to make such a spectacle of herself. The Leo woman in turn will be dismayed when she sees her Scorpio lover not longer willing to pay court to her charms or indulge all her fancies. Then again all Leos love to be the center of attention and the sight of his partner being admired and feted by people all around is enough to drive the Scorpio to the depths of jealousy. The Scorpion can be extremely dangerous when jealous where as this possessiveness might not go down well with his proud Leo partner who cannot imagine anyone daring to dominate her.

The Leo-Scorpio pair thus might seem to have every potential for disaster if not for the sole fact that both of them are extremely loyal lovers. Both believe that unequivocal commitment is the highest proof of love and it is this more than anything else which will guarantee the eventual success of the relationship.
