Famous Leo-Scorpio Couples:
Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver
Think of the classiest erotic film you’ve ever seen and then cast these two in the leading roles. Imagine Antony and Cleopatra, MacBeth and his Lady, to name two Power/Prestige Couples. When Leo and Scorpio meet it’s all about undeniable pride, power and sex appeal. It can’t escape being a very showy and talked about affair. Leo has a way of bringing out the best in the Scorpion because when he is in love, he is absolutely faithful. She finds this disarming because she is so suspicious. She has been betrayed in the past and may even be a little embittered by nature. Of course she puts the lion to the test like she does all her men but … he keeps passing with flying colors until she realizes he really is as guileless as he seems. Leo loves first prize and she is sure to be one.
How to Attract a Scorpio Woman as a Leo Man:
You’ve got to mean business and you’ve got to demonstrate this by putting a stake in the relationship early on. You must be the first to use the “L” word and the “M” word. She’s been hurt so much before she’s going to make sure your emotional risk is at least equal to hers before she starts to play some cards. It’s Bridge she’s playing. Like intelligent and good bidding, everything she says or does “means Something”. Nothing goes for face value. Figure it out.
How to Attract a Leo Man as a Scorpio Woman:
You can’t be quite as subtle as you usually are because Prince Charming is utterly without subterfuge or motive. It will take you awhile to realize it but his heart really is pure gold. He can handle any degree of sexy you want to throw at him. Let the Big Beast be in control while you become the power behind the throne. Everything about love is a pretty big deal to a Leo so please try to be a sympathetic and appreciative audience.
Degree of Romance:
This is one of the most romantic combinations. A Leo in love with a Scorpio reaches the deepest places in his emotions which are completely eroticized. This brings out every ounce of courtship he has in him. He will say something like, “Now I know why a man goes to war over a woman.” Like the Greeks and their Helen of Troy he knows he’s going for first prize and he knows he will win with his irresistible ardor and sincerity. A focused Leo in Love is like no other force you will ever encounter.
Degree of Passion:
This is probably the most passionate combination in the zodiac because it involves body, heart and soul. These two experience love as a Force Majeure.
Degree of Friendship:
Degree of Marriage:
This is an excellent choice for marriage provided both the Leo man and Scorpio woman are well balanced and secure, a marriage remarkable for its loyalty, fidelity and “til death do us part” endurance. Both parties believe in marriage for one reason only, true love. Both parties are by nature monogamous and commitment oriented. They do not stray because it is beneath their dignity. Each prides him/herself on self control.
Progression of Relationship:
Leo will pull out all the stops. He knows, like Simon Bolivar, that there is no mistake in courtship which can be recovered and you will experience a deftly executed and orchestrated full court press based on the premise, Amor vincit omnia. Every Leo man is a conquering hero at heart and he will give you his in the sweetest way. Scorpio may seem passive but it is her energy which drives him past all reason. She is the quintessential feminine object of desire.
Both partners live for a deep, erotic experience of merging energy with another fully worthwhile, committed partner. They are likely to blow each other away in their love making experiences as they find in one another what they have always been looking for. Scorpio has a reputation of being sexual but Scorpios are actually more discriminating about their partners than Virgo’s. She is looking for a range of emotions and feelings, someone else who gives all to get all, a sort of Bedroom Brinksmanship. She wants the complete experience, body and soul. Leo provides le Coeur. Read metaphysical poet John Donne’s poem, “The Ecstasy”.
When It’s Over:
A breakup between these two is cataclysmic because of the degree of commitment involving heart, body and soul. The Scorpio woman may be quite bitter and vindictive where the Leo man will be truly broken with anguish and despair. Their suffering is genuine. It will be a long time before either tries again. Be prepared to drink fully from the cup or don’t raise it to your lips.
