The eighth sign of the Zodiac, Scorpio is assigned to people born between October 23 and November 21.  It is a Fixed, Feminine, Water sign which is symbolized by the Scorpion.  These people are ruled by two planets, Mars, God of War and Pluto, God of the Underworld.

A highly sensitive water sign, these individuals possess deep and intense feelings. Those born under this sign are deeply attuned to their emotions.

Scorpios are focused, courageous, faithful, ambitious and intuitive.  Jealousy is a weakness they must learn to curb in order to maintain good relations with others.

Scorpio is the most powerful and controlling fixed sign, that’s why when in love, Scorpios have an “all or nothing” approach and demand the same from their partner. They fall hard when they fall in love because fixed sign people are not easily dislodged.  

These individuals are extremely romantic and their partners are beyond lucky to be loved by them.  The only thing to watch out for is the “scorpion’s sting”, which will be unleashed when betrayal of trust occurs.   Since their emotional investment runs high in their relationships, once they are slighted, forgiveness is out of the question and revenge is likely to happen.

Leo And Scorpio Compatibility Verdict

There will be instant attraction between these two but what happens when two powerful signs get involved?  Battle of egos! Leo’s authoritative streak will certainly clash with Scorpio’s controlling attitude.  Both want to be in control and it is unlikely that one of them will give way.  

Their “know it all” attitude only adds fuel to the fire because Leo naturally wants to lead while Scorpio naturally wants to be in control. The key here is to determine early on who’ll take the driver’s and passenger’s seats.  If they can agree to switch seats from time to time, harmony can exist in their relationship.

Another source of conflict here is Leo’s self-obsession which makes him/her insensitive to Scorpio’s emotional needs.  The Lion’s love for the limelight turns him/her callous to what others think and feel. On the other hand, the Scorpion’s possessive nature will be too constricting for our social butterfly.

Although both of them are capable of loving generously, in this case, their egos are just too big for their hearts that compromise may be impossible to reach.

My Verdict:  Attraction is scorching but frequent personality clashes will prevent this match up from going the distance.
