Leo and Scorpio: Your compatibility clicks and clashes

Where you click:
If you can celebrate each other’s magnetic personalities, you’ll have a spicy match on your hands that lasts for at least a season (if not a lifetime). Unfortunately, it’s all too easy for each of you to become threatened by the other’s projected confidence. Remind yourselves of this daily: you don’t need to break each other down to ensure that you won’t be left in the lurch. Besides, sex this good doesn’t come along every day. With Leo’s show-stopping personality and Scorpio’s behind-the-scenes alchemy, you can blend your talents into a moneymaking hit that supports a family for generations to come.

Where you clash:
Caution: power struggles ahead! Both Leo and Scorpio need to feel like number one. Trouble is, neither sign is quick to give up control. Different approaches to childrearing also cause some consternation…and often another battleground for control. Woosh! If resolving conflicts on a daily basis is your idea of an aphrodisiac, go ahead and get hitched. Otherwise, you might be better off as business partners or just friends.

Love and compatibility by element

Leo is fire and Scorpio is water

Too close for comfort? As an astrology love match, fire and water signs can have wildly different needs. To succeed as a couple, compromise is essential. Water signs are soothing and nurturing, prone to fluctuating moods. They deeply crave security and comfort. By contrast, Fire signs can be aggressive, independent and often seek discomfort in the name of adventure. While water signs are nostalgic and tend to live in the rosy-hued (or overly maligned) past, fire signs are pioneers who get most excited about sculpting a future of their own creation. So, how can the traditionalist water sign and the risk-taking fire sign happily coexist?

The fire sign will have to enter the water sign’s world of family visits, downtime at home, returning to the same vacation spots and hanging with a small crew of lifelong friends…even if that feels limiting or stagnant. In return, the water sign will have to embrace adventure, travel, meeting new people (and being social when they do!), risk and changing up their comfortable routines from time to time. Parents can be a big sticking point, as the water sign partner is often dutifully close to theirs while the fire sign may have left home at 18 and never looked back. In nature, water can put out a fire, which can either control a raging wildfire (good) or douse a vibrant flame (not so good). Fire can warm up cold water, but it can also make it boiling and steaming mad! Too much fire can even cause water to evaporate, just as an overly dominant fire sign can cause the less aggressive water sign to “disappear” in the relationship.

When you turn on each other, it can be an endless war, with blame and judgment, defending your point of view just to protect your ego.

There are four elements in astrology: fire, earth, air and water. Each one plays an important role in the greater whole of humankind. A love match with someone from of a different astrological element can be challenging, but also a beautiful opportunity to evolve. After all, differences push you both to grow and step outside of your own experience.

divider-graylove and compatibility by quality or triplicity

Leo and Scorpio are both fixed signs

In astrology, the “qualities” or “triplicities” reveal the role you play in a relationship or collaboration. Are you a starter, a doer or a finisher? Do you like to take charge and have a plan, or do you prefer to go with the flow? As fixed signs, you are guardians of your “turf.” You like to plant a flag and set up your base, building an empire from there. If the two of you share an agenda, you can be an indomitable duo. Hello, power couple! But if you’re fighting for different causes, things can get ugly fast. You’ll both dig in your heels and stubbornly defend your territory. When you turn on each other, it can be an endless war, with blame and judgment, defending your point of view just to protect your ego. Your best bet is to channel this urge into creating a shared legacy—running a business together, starting a family, hosting all the holidays. Since fixed signs have a traditional side, you might both enjoy having everyone gather at your stately home for summer barbecues or New Year’s Eve parties. Just be careful not to get SO set in your ways that you insist on doing the same things year in and year out. Fixed signs can be allergic to change, so as a duo, you’ll need to actively invite new experiences into your world to prevent from getting stagnant.

divider-graylove and compatibility by polarity

Leo is yang Scorpio is yin

In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine).  In your sign match, Scorpio is a receptive yin sign and Leo is an assertive yang sign. When you play to your strengths, you balance each other out, each on contributing a different but complementary skill set. When things are off, you can become polarized. The yin sign can be too passive (or passive-aggressive) and sacrificing, while the yang sign may act domineering, aggressive and selfish. To rebalance, the yin sign needs to work on being more open, direct and confident, while the yang sign should cultivate more patience, tolerance and sensitivity.

divider-graylove and compatibility: your aspects

Leo and Scorpio are square (three signs apart)

In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are square, or three signs apart. Mommy and daddy issues, anyone? The square aspect is a harsh, 90-degree angle between two signs that creates a push-pull dynamic. It’s the relationship that helps you work through issues with a difficult parent, usually by reactivating old, painful wounds. There can be power struggles and clashing agendas. Don’t expect to kick back and put your feet up in this match. The dynamic tension will keep you active and keyed up. Of course, that could be exactly what you want. The opportunity of the “square” aspect is to teach you how to compromise with an equally strong-willed partner. When you strike that delicate balance, you can make an undeniable “power couple”—a true force to be reckoned with.
