Leo and Scorpio compatibility

Today we are going to talk about two of the most intense zodiac signs. They both are strong, proud, stubborn and decisive: Scorpio and Leo. One is a sign of fire, while the other is water. Can this end in a good way? Anyways, why are they so similar despite seeming so different at first?


Pluto rules Scorpio, and that is why this water zodiac sign is so alive and powerful. Scorpio is as passionate as a fire sign, but still keeps its instinctive power and all the emotionality that is always innate to water zodiac signs.

Knowing Scorpio and knowing the character of Leo, one can imagine that we are facing one of the most passionate, dangerous and fervent relationships of all Zodiac. For better and for worse.

In love, friendship and at work –even between family members-, Scorpio and Leo compatibility means drama in its purest state: discussions, outbursts, rage, passion… an epopee. The dominance between them is going to be one of the hardest obstacles to overcome, but if they do it, everything is possible!

Let’s see if these two can finally work it out one way or another.

Scorpio and Leo compatibility in friendship

Scorpio and Leo in friendship have a trait in common, and very important: they are truly loyal to each other. This is a particular characteristic that can make them inseparable. If a Leo and a Scorpio find themselves in their path of life, they can defeat anything they have in front of them, even in the hardest times.

They are both loyal by nature, and they normally share many hobbies and interests. They will be committed forever if they feel that when they are in trouble they have someone next to them.

The main difference between them is that Leo always want to be the center of attention, the star in the movie, the protagonist of the party. Scorpio hate this kind of vanity and can make them very angry at Leo.

On the other side, Scorpio sometimes can lack expressivity, so if they get very angry, they may say nothing at first and a few weeks later explode. Of course, this drives Leo crazy.

The bad mood of Scorpio will piss off Leo a lot, and at that point, the fight can be apocalyptic. It is difficult for them to understand each other, mainly because they are both proud and individualist. However, this can be fixed with mutual respect.

If they can sort out their differences, their friendship can be stable and long-lasting.

Leo and Scorpio compatibility in love

Scorpio and Leo in relationship need to be patient if they want to last forever, or at least, for a long time. Perseverance here is very important to keep things going: their passion can make them be very close and very distant at the same time.

They are not only passionate, stubborn and decisive… they are also very possessive and they would never ignore a betrayal or someone cheating on them. With Leo being so needy for attention, this can be a Venezuelan soap opera.

Scorpio and Leo in love are very similar, but Scorpio people keep things for themselves. When a Leo flirts around with other people, a Scorpio feels like he/she has been kicked in the face. Scorpio will always think that Leo has been unfaithful to them.

And in fact, this can be sometimes true.

When a Scorpio is suspicious of a lack of loyalty from Leo, he or she will start to do many twisted things, like saying that they have also been unfaithful to hurt Leo’s pride or not giving Leo any emotional affection.

What happens when Leo doesn’t get enough attention or admiration? They get furious. And when the fight starts, there is no ending between these two.

Love bonds between Leo and Scorpio in relationship are powerful and irresistible, although the level of demanding of Leo can be extreme over a Scorpio. If they sort this out, they can have a very welcoming home and a good and sane relationship. But the lion needs to calm down, that is the only way to reach a peaceful love.

But there is one positive aspect in these two passionate and unstoppable signs: they don’t like to fight in public and make a scene. Don’t forget that Leo looks for other’s admiration and respect, and Scorpio doesn’t like to expose his/her intimacy.

In the case of a break-up, it would be devastating, of course.

If the relationship between Leo and Scorpio ends in a bad way, we can think that Scorpio will hold a grudge and is more dangerous in a possible revenge. But that is not true at all. Scorpio keep their privacy for themselves, and if they do something, it won’t be in public.

Otherwise, a hurt lion will tell all hi/her friends how bad Scorpio is. And, as a natural born leader, people will believe Leo.

Not everything is darkness!

Between Leo and Scorpio in love, there is an exceptional chemistry. The fascination is mutual: Scorpio like to play with fire, and Leo will be hypnotized by Scorpio’s magnetism.

If they want to succeed in their relationship, they need to be more tolerant. Otherwise, they won’t last long. Leo needs to understand that, even if Scorpio doesn’t say it, he/she has many emotions inside. Scorpio needs to learn how to live next to the majesty of a Leo and his/her caprices in life.

They also need to understand themselves. They have to control their impulses and instinctive reactions so they do not cross the line and invade the other’s territory. Together they won’t be bored, and if they manage their differences, they can be together for a long time.

Scorpio and Leo at work

On a professional level, they will be fine if they belong to different work sectors, because the risk of a fight or a discussion is always on the table. Each one of them needs their own territory. Both signs have the secret desire of domination and leadership –they were born for that!

In fact, this desire in Scorpio is more secret, and it is very obvious in Leo. But in the end, they are born leaders. They prefer to rule than being ruled by others. Two stubborn zodiac symbols with a strong and energetic personality. Working with a Scorpio and a Leo at the same workplace can be a nightmare sometimes.

The discussion will come for sure if their own roles are not properly defined and limited. They will fight for power, and these fights won’t be light… they can even be dangerous with consequences.

If they are mature enough to balance their respective ambitions, they can stand each other and even work peacefully.  Because another aspect that they have in common and that can lead them to solve these problems is that they both like a job well done. No mistakes are allowed.

Their relationship at work can be ok if they leave aside their competitiveness and they focus on their common goals.
