The Compatibility Between Leo and Scorpio

Before we take a look at their compatibility, there’s a couple of things we need to cover first. Like, how exactly does the zodiac tell us how compatible two people are for each other? Well, the zodiac already gives us the personality, predispositions and behavior of a person based on their signs. Using these traits, the zodiac simply needs to mix and match one sign to another to see how compatible they are! For instance, we know that Scorpio’s secretive nature is likely to clash with Sag’s straightforward nature.

Next, let’s look at Scorpio and Leo’s traits as enumerated by the zodiac. It will become much easier to understand the nuances of Leo and Scorpio compatibility when we know who they are as individuals. Starting with Leo, a fire sign that has the symbol of a lion, who governs the period from July 23 to August 22. Leos are loud and proud, the life of the party and are always craving attention. With the Sun as their planetary ruler, they are also energetic, creative and powerful.

Scorpio is a water sign that governs the period from October 23 to November 21. They have the symbol of a deadly scorpion. This, and having a planetary ruler of death and destruction like Pluto, you already know Scorpio is a dangerous and unpredictable individual. They are secretive, emotional and difficult to get along with. But once you get close to them, you’ll have a loyal friend for life.

Leo Compatibility with Scorpio: The Big Picture

So, are they compatible? Well, the two certainly have their differences! Leo is a fire sign, while Scorpio is a water sign. Scorpio is an introverted, abrasive person while Leo is a social, friendly outgoer. But if these two can put their differences aside and get along, they can grow to become very close.

The pair isn’t without its good sides. Scorpio is the farthest thing from a water sign, and resembles a fire sign more with its temperament. They also might enjoy toying with the predictable and easily manipulated Leo. Leo, for their part, is endlessly enthralled by Scorpio, the one person whose attention they can’t take with ease. We’ll explore each specific interaction and relationship with the two as we go along.

Leo and Scorpio Friendship

Yikes, these two might actually not have that much compatibility as friends! Leo’s competitive nature clashes with Scorpio’s need for control and dominance. Which ends up more often than not in a bitter rivalry between the two instead of a tender friendship. Leo cannot respect Scorpio’s boundaries and their straightforward, aggressive nature often irritates the dark and mysterious sign. These two are more likely to end up in a fight than they are hanging out

What You Can Learn from their ‘Friendship’

If you’re trying to make friends, make sure you vibe with the person beforehand. At the very least, try to respect their space. There’s a difference between approachable and nosy after all. Leo needs to give Scorpio the space and time to get used to them, and Scorpio needs to get a little more social. Otherwise, it’s not likely that a friendship between the two will develop.

Leo and Scorpio in Love

Let’s get to everyone’s most desired topic: Scorpio and Leo’s love compatibility. The two cannot get along as friends very well, but what about as lovers? Surprisingly, they’re very compatible when put together in a romantic relationship! At least, a lot more compatible than they are as friends. Though they certainly face similar challenges.

We can attribute their success to tenure and depth of relationship. With enough time, Leo can see past Scorpio’s walls and Scorpio can grow accustomed to Leo’s noise. But depth is even more important in this regard. Instead of trying to find a casual companion to hang out with, when the two yearn for each other their differences only serve to bring them closer together. Opposites attract, as they say, and these two are living proof of that.

Pros and Cons of their Relationship

Every relationship has its ups and downs. Scorpio and Leo are no different, and in particular face many obstacles in their relationship. But surprisingly, they have almost as many great points as romantic partners, as well! We’re going over each of their pros and cons as romantic partners below, so pay attention. You can use these to examine (or prepare for) your own relationships.


Scorpio and Leo have a very powerful, sensual attraction for each other. Being polar opposites, the signs are drawn to each other, perfectly balancing the other out. Scorpio is a great safe space for Leo, to emotionally let their guard down and vent. Leo provides Scorpio with some much needed social interaction and communication. Both signs are fiercely loyal creatures, and appreciate that in the other.

Even their planetary rulers are on opposite sides of the spectrum, Pluto being on the other side of our solar system from the Sun. However, there are many congruences in these opposites that hint at their compatibility. We already mentioned how Scorpio is emotionally closer to a fire sign despite being a water sign. But the same way Pluto represents destruction, it is also a symbol for rebirth. Mirroring the way Leo, the Sun, rises each day in a rather romantic fashion. 


Unfortunately, the relationship these two share is also full of issues. Thankfully, there’s nothing new there in the dating scene. And as with any relationship, these issues are very much solvable with trust, understanding and compromise. But as for their cons, Leo’s constant need for attention and affection can frustrate the solitary Scorpio. Scorpio, on the other hand, needing to always keep Leo to themselves can suffocate the social sign.

Additionally, it’s true that at the best of times their differences make them better for each other. But in the worst of times, these differences only add fuel to the fire of their arguments. Polar opposites with strong personalities makes for pride, stubbornness and refusing to back down in arguments. It doesn’t help that both of these signs are also emotionally supercharged creatures. Ultimately, these can lead to the complete breakdown of their relationship.

What You Can Learn from their Relationship

Anyone who’s been in a relationship can tell you that it brings out the best and worst in you. That’s okay, because you can enjoy the best and mitigate the worst. Trust your partner enough to give them the space they need. Understand their differences, and don’t question everything they do. Compromise with each other, and meet in the middle ground instead of insisting on your extremes.

You’ll find that a relationship isn’t all about what you can take from your partner. It’s about what you’re willing to give up for them. If you can see past your differences and drop your pride, it may surprise you how many arguments you can defuse this way. Even if it feels unfair at first, if your partner loves you they’ll appreciate you always being willing to compromise. In the end, they’ll do the same for you as well.
