Scorpio Woman Leo Man

Our Scorpio Woman and Leo Man compatibility rating is 7. The elements don't combine, and the qualities represent competing interests; by working toward the same goal and through honest understanding, this relationship can become more passionate and permanent.

Despite some negative aspects, there is a lot of potential in this relationship.

The Elements

Water vs Fire - Water and fire have a tendency to cancel each other out; between Scorpio and Leo there is usually a kind of caution that comes from this tension. A common purpose is the solution.

The Qualities

Both are Fixed - You both are born under Fixed signs, and in this case, it means a stubborn clash of wills between one who refuses to be imposed upon and one who is demanding. Honesty and compromise are the solution.

The Planets

Mars & Pluto vs the Sun - Mars and the Sun, your respective "ruling" planets, always get along. But your sign has a co-ruler, Pluto. Almost always, when the Sun and Pluto come in contact with one another, it means a power struggle. It need not be a violent or heartbreaking one, but it is a struggle nonetheless. The Sun wants to dominate and Pluto refuses to be dominated. The outcome is usually that Pluto will win, and that's not necessarily a bad thing; it usually brings balance.

Love and Romance

It's probably the air of self-confidence that attracts you to a Leo Man, and he's likely to be drawn to you by your placid demeanor and your powerful gaze, both of which he finds exciting. His handiness and dependability endear him to you, and your devotion endears you to him. At the same time, his occasional arrogance irritates you, and your icy silence can make him absolutely furious. Because of your protective attitude toward your emotions, it may be difficult to realize that complements are the antidote for his arrogance, and it's not likely that he'll ever realize that his commanding tone is the cause of your silence. The good news is that he tends to be generous and forgiving. Your ability to probe the depths of your own soul and behavior, as well as his, can help you quickly discover his weakness for flattery, and use it to your advantage.

The Keys to Success

Know that he is loyal, but loves attention.

He will often gain the attention of other women, and although it's not likely that he'll get involved in affairs (he's too loyal for that), he will certainly revel in it. Attention is like catnip to him. This may be the cause for suspicion, but try not to judge him as guilty; he's probably innocent.

Don't expect many apologies.

Most Leo Men find it difficult, if not impossible, to apologize for their behavior. Their standard way of handling their mistakes is to shift the blame to you, and then try to get you to apologize to them. This can be a big problem in the relationship. When there are disagreements, you'll have to start the resolution process, and do so without injuring his pride, and that's not easy.

He can be impulsive and reckless.

You may find that he has a tendency to engage in bouts of reckless or impulsive behavior. This is part of his being a Fire Sign, not an inherently self-destructive streak. Do your best not to encourage him, but remember not to scold him either. He may be trying to make up for attention he feels he's missing, or he may be trying to make you proud of him. Let him know that you are often enough, and he'll outgrow that schoolboy aspect of his character. When he does, he'll become the kind of warm and generous partner he was meant to be.

Final Score: Scorpio Woman Leo Man compatibility = 70%.
