Leo Man and Scorpio Woman Compatibility

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.

  1. I am a scorpio woman who was in a relationship with a leo man for almost 2 years. When we met and talked for the first time our connection was instant. We fell deeeeeeeep in love. Of course our relationship had its ups and downs. He cheated once and lied to me often but of course for us scorpios love conqures all. We were there for each other when we both had no one. Sadly things ended due to constant bickering and the lies. I still love him to the core and would do anything for him as i feel he would do the same for me. I dont know where we stand as i was single for over a yr because i was unsure if it was really over so.. just recently i moved on maybe 1 month ago because he grew really busy and just yesterday he hit me up LOL. He didnt even know i moved on and when i told him he was suprisingly calm only after threatning the new guys life to me lmao. He also shocked me with an apology for hurting me so badly. I cried like a baby and they werent sad tears. I guess just releif to know he cares and he wants me to be happy. He even offered to make time for me now as i guess we both miss each other. Honestly i dont think i will ever love anyone how i love him and we both came to the conclusion that we are end game. We will see. If i can give any insight on this match it would be this relationship is hard work. It is no cake walk. You guys are going to fight make up and fight some more, but you will also love like you never loved before. This match is do able but only the strong survive lol and i think both of these signs are rather strong. Leos dont be selfish, close minded, or unfaithful. Scorpios pull back on the possivness just a tab and stroke their ego every now and again. Also dont be argumentative about everyyyyy single thing. Paitence is key. Good luck

  2. I am a leo, I have a Scorpio bf, our relationship has had a roller coster ride. Ups and downs. But our passion is on fire and we’ve been stuck together through thick and thin. It’s true though the sex part. Me and bf were all over each other the first time we confessed love. We can’t keep our hands off of each other. I mean on the day we went from being friends to lovers we were on second base, almost getting to third. It’s really difficult to not get horney when were together. Lol were wild in bed. Lol lol

  3. I find this to be extremely true. I have been cheated on heartbroken.. it’s been a little tough but I found my leo man and he’s perfect. I mean ill see. After everything I have been through I don’t trust anyone. I hope my leo man keeps his word.

  4. hey there :
    I have a problem, I wish you can help me understand what’s going on !
    I am a Leo, I got married to a Libra 9 years ago, unfortunately will lost passion & love 3 years back, but we got a baby boy “he’s 2 now”so we decided to stay together for the sake of the baby ” which is worth doing”cause we highly respect each other & it’s good for him I believe.

    the thing is which may sound weird to people , since 5 years , each year I meet a Scorpio female around april- may months, 100% not intentionally & without bringing up the leo-scorpio thing , we hock up for around 2-3 weeks “I know it’s wrong” then end up hating each other ,,, longest period was 2 months & it was serious … anyway, it happened again this year , I met someone last week, i found out that she’s a Scorpio just this morning, she’s different , I can’t explain what happening , what are the chances for this to happen every year … honestly I can’t understand it …can you help me out ?

  5. I was in love with a Leo man & I am a scropio women , we fell in love so fast & be it was great . I smiled everyday . But closer to the end of our relationship that’s when lies started rolling in , I was deeply hurt because he ended up In a relationship with another women . & still be trying to tell me he in love with me . I was so confused and hurt I just didn’t know what to do , so I tried being his friend and that didn’t work . So I forced myself to move , but I grown so much love for his family that it’s hard for me not to be around them . I say all of this to say , that Scorpio women & Leo men are NOT a perfect match

    Noting is forever, I though I could handle Leo’s they are too crazy over woman , see, I like him but he seems to go astray… too far away from us even were near he turned me off instead of getting me, Ive been inlove but See leo’s are scary they always want their attention on their faces ima sayin that I don’t think these match is good. I seem to test two scorp and leo lover, it was an automatic breakup on them just in one mistake.

  7. I am a Scorpio female and he is Leo man ,but he told someone that I knew that he likes other girls including me. I’m in love with him ,of course since I love so deeply. He touches me and we talk more in person than over the phone. I don’t want to open up to him if it means he doesn’t feel as deeply as I do.I would go to Hell and back just for him.But I don’t want to tell him I love him because I don’t want to come off as naive and desperate but he does know I like him but not as deeply as he might think.But for the past few weeks we have been shaky.Like today he made a very mean angry face and I was quite startled but I didn’t show.After a while I began to become emotionally sick and so I feel asleep.But even so I don’t feel like I should apologize to him.For most of the time I was the one to say sorry because I knew I wasn’t always in the right.But my question is does he love me more than the other girls he likes or not and what to do then?

  9. Til death do us partDecember 21, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    I’m a scorpio woman, been dating my leo man for merely 6 months now, but we’ve known each other for a good couple of years. He was shy to say “I Love You” At first but now he can’t stop saying it. I’ve never felt love for someone as deep and as passionate as my love for him. He is stubborn, but so am I. We bring out the best in each other and I couldn’t be happier. He protects me with his life, and I protect him with mine. When together, we feel like we can do anything. And the sex is phenomenal. (He’s truly talented!!). He’s asked me to marry him, in an unofficial sort of way though, (he doesn’t have a ring, simply because he wants me to pick it out, and because he feels we’re too young to be truly married just yet), and with tears of joy in my eyes even so, I said yes. Through each other’s struggles we help one another back up on our feet and give the other a kick in the ass when they need one. We’re each one of a kind, and I couldn’t imagine my life without him. I’ll love him forever, til death do us part. ‚ô•

  10. Sad ScorpionNovember 16, 2011 at 4:16 am

    My head has been wandering like a sad puppy. I recently realized how much I’m so drawn to my best friend who happens to be Leo. We’ve been friends for almost ten years, but within the last year we’ve been really good friends. Somehow we ended up sharing our lust for each other and became intimate. Now he seems to be indifferent. When I ask him how he feels, he states- he doesn’t want to lose my friendship and brings up how I’ve devoured bad relationships in my past and I should focus on myself. Truth is. The past relationships have made me realized how important he is to me. … Anyways.. Now I sit and wither away with lingering thoughts of confusion.

  11. Hi..I am a Leo guy and have dated a Scorpio girl..we had a few dates I know here since about 2 months..there is strong magnetism in this scorp girl which draws me towards her..although she is not open about here emotions and feelings wheres as I am an extrovert and speak my mind and heart. At times it is puzzling to know what going on inside her and difficult to read in between the lines. I proposed her but they took a lot of time to decide whether she wants to go ahead and finally she decided to call if off..I don’t know what to say..as there’s no point convincing a scorp girl once they make up thier mind..and I don’t want to beg for her approval..please advice.

  12. i am in love with a scorpip man.i dnt knw why i attract towards him there must be something in him.tht’s why i could not able to apart myself from him.at present he is not with me. actually he got married 3 years ago.but i still love him.nd he use to come to meet me.but i never allow him to make love.coz i could not forget in bed experiences with him.but i dnt knw why am feeling like he must come back to me one day,nd we will be togather forever nd we will definatly got merry.i dnt knw why this feelings comes to me.but the truth is tht am still waiting for him.

    Thank you so much, Nancy, for this inspiring, insightful article! I have Sun in Aquarius, but I identify more with my Scorpio Ascendant and I’m interested in a Leo man. I’ve wondered what the match might be like and I can envision it playing out as you described. How delicious! And powerful! Yes, I completely agree…either prepare to drink fully or do not raise the cup to your lips. I believe that I’m prepared to drink fully. Many blessings to you!

  14. Confused Scorpio :
    I am Scorpio women, in love with a Leo man but not sure about marrying him, due to the fear of not being compatible. We do love each other a lot. First time i am coming across a site which says we are compatible, nice to hear that. But the fear of ever regretting for marrying the man i love is still there.. I dont mind not marrying him and repenting later rather than marrying him and regretting. Hope i know what i am doing and i wish what is written in this site can be true.
