Leo's compatibility with Scorpio: Love and relationships

Take a look at the following Leo and Scorpio compatibility reading to gain some insight on this pair

An obvious problem for the combination of the Leo and a Scorpio is that both can be quite stubborn. However, there is a good argument for this pair in terms of compatibility, provided that they can harness their combined strength of character into a unified force. The Leo and the Scorpio could certainly be attracted by each other’s strength and determination to succeed.

Whether they can get along without one trying to dominate the other is the key to this relationship. The prospects for a love match between a Leo and a Scorpio hinge on the initial power struggle. Although both are capable of strong commitment, they are equally prone to fits of jealousy, and this could also spell trouble. When things are going well, then anything is possible, but there is always likely to be a combustible element to this relationship.

As well as being stubborn, the Leo and the Scorpio can also be too proud for their own good. In many partnerships, one strong character is essential for the relationship to work. However, combining two such strong characters can make for a very volatile relationship and raises a lot of questions in terms of compatibility.

Can a relationship between a Scoprio and a Leo work?

Although the Scorpio and the Leo may well be attracted by the other's strength and resolve, there will have to be a compromise at some point. If they simply refuse to see the other person’s point of view, this relationship is doomed to failure. The prospect of these two signs trying to establish dominance conjures up a picture of two boxers standing toe to toe. However, if the power issue is resolved naturally, there is more than a little hope for this unusual pairing.

The initial attraction is likely to be as powerful as their combined strength of character. There is an element of mystery about the Leo that will be enticing to the Scorpio, who, in turn, will find themselves drawn towards the open and generous nature of the Leo. They may well enjoy the clash of their strong wills in the initial phase, although this could act as a warning of what is to follow.

If they do find compatibility, they will offer commitment and support to one another that could form a very strong partnership indeed. The Leo will not get away with any bluster because the Scorpio are well known for their almost psychic intuition.

When you combine this with jealousy and possessiveness, you will understand just how volatile this relationship could become. Both are equally capable of commitment, but it is a brave person or a fool who would cross either of them!
