Leo and Scorpio is the type of relationship which will probably make a good movie. Passionate, volatile, dramatic, intense, explosive and punctuated with some wild make up sex.
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Leo man or Leo woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Scorpio man or Scorpio woman.
You both have exceptionally strong personalities, and you both want to be in control. You're both stubborn, both enjoy a good argument, both can be fairly dramatic in your own ways, and are both very loyal (though your Scorpio might not believe it!)
Throw in some amazing make up sex, and it's safe to predict this relationship will be a series of heated arguments, name calling, yelling, and more sex. All of epic proportions.
Amongst other aspects, you enjoy being the center of attention, including flirting a little. Your Scorpio will hate every minute of it. Scorpio also isn't the type to massage your ego. Your partner hates anything superficial, and is more likely to ignore you than compliment you if they feel you don't deserve it.
Meanwhile, your flirtatious nature will inspire jealousy be afraid, be very afraid of that. In short, this will be a battle of pride (yours) versus control (Scorpios).
You'll find Scorpio to be temperamental and moody, emotional and secretive. Scorpio will find you to be superficial, vain and too controlling.
This probably doesn't sound very harmonious, however you both tend to really dislike indifferent partners. You can handle love, and you can handle hate - but being ignored or bored is far worse for you. What makes this match often work so well is that you'll never feel this partner is indifferent. There will always be some intense emotion brought forth - good or bad. This will never be an indifferent or boring relationship.
This is a relationship which very few Leos can resist! The larger than life fights, the intensity, the drama, the sexual aura of your Scorpio. You'll grab this one with both hands!
An explosive match which is often off the charts. You'll love and hate every minute of it!
It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the compatibility readings page.
This relationship will be a battle of wills and control. You'll both love, hate, respect and despise each other. Your Leo will (secretly) love the drama, and you'll (secretly) love the intensity of the bittersweet emotional rollercoaster that only someone so much larger than life, and with such a big heart can provide.
Your Leo is a passionate, charismatic, egotistical flirt. Invulnerable to you in so many ways, yet you'll hold the emotional purse strings, because s/he will look to you above all others for the praise and admiration Leos crave. And you'll withhold it. Probably ignoring your Leo at the same time, just for good measure!
Leo will respond dramatically, probably either by getting feisty or seeking attention elsewhere (Leo is actually very loyal, but can be a champion flirt). Sooner or later your Leo will hit a nerve, you'll both pull on your boxing gloves, and hell will break loose. Throw in some highly intense make up sex. Rinse and repeat for the next 40 years!
All that would be bad. If only you couldn't tell that in their own soft cuddly and big hearted way your Leos love for you isn't as infinite as your own..
Passionate, intense and explosive - if you've ever felt let down by a partner who was indifferent to you, you'll certainly appreciate your Leos bold and dramatic style. Even if they don't deserve you!
So is this article conclusive? No! This article is based only on sun sign interaction. In order to provide a lot of people with information it's a convenient and fast way to generalize, but it's far from conclusive at this broad level. To get a complete picture we need to take all the other planets and their interactions into account for each of you, with a real astrology reading...
