Scorpio and Leo Compatibility:
Love, Sex, Trust and Life
Leos are undoubtedly egoistical, but at the same time extremely lovable. Being compassionate is also another characteristic – even more so, if they are smothered with love and admiration, which to their mind they fully deserve anyway. However, expecting this from the Scorpion really does not make much sense. It makes,more sense to them to take over the mantles of the Leo before even thinking of complimenting or praising them. Leos are undoubtedly somewhat domineering, but being bright and sunny tempered, Scorpios could find themselves willingly giving in and even throwing in some compliments as well. It could be just an impression that Scorpios give of being genuine and generous because they are masters at the art of ulterior motives.

For Leos and Scorpios to remain together for a prolonged period is a very tough job. As family, colleagues or even friends, they get along just fine. But, when it comes to the question of wielding authority, it is a different ball game altogether. There are bound to be arguments of a fireball kind.

This kind of closeness or bonding is so close as to be positively heart-warming. If in a marital relationship or a budding romance, a lot of patience will be needed or there are chances that everything could be lost.

Scorpio could take any change in stance as a weakness and Leo might take this to mean that Scorpio is being too self-opinionated.

Leo takes umbrage at being denied loads of admiration for his acumen and constantly having to wage a battle off sorts; at the same time Scorpio refuses to accept the Leonine arrogance. If Scorpio is sure that the impact is negative for him, he will just turn around and walk away for good.
