Famous Scorpio-Leo Couples: Bill and Melinda Gates; James Carville and Mary Matalin
This is an intense and erotic combination because there is an element of power in the sexuality. Neither one can completely conquer the other, but they won’t stop trying. The bedroom becomes the theater for great acts and/or great melodrama. Nothing is too small to overreact to. Everything means something.
How to Attract a Leo Woman as a Scorpio Man: If you are courting a Leo lady, you must be regal, dignified, in complete control of yourself and exude power and confidence. You’ve selected this lady because she is almost impossible to please, but don’t kowtow. If you act like a puppy dog she’ll probably act like a lion and swallow you whole for a snack between meals. Keep control at all times. A single, sincere, well meant and honest compliment will go 1,000 times farther than all the fawning in the world. If you are like most Scorpio males, you are reluctant to drool over someone. That works to your advantage here, but do force yourself to offer up some insightful praise.
How to Attract a Scorpio Man as a Leo Woman: The attraction here is sexual. If you’ve got it, flaunt it. Look him in the eye and dare him to stroke your beautiful mane and make you purr. You know all those men who are intimidated by you? Well, this man isn’t. So make the most of this rare opportunity and strut your stuff.
Degree of Romance: There is an off the scale and over the top possibility of romance in this combination. Both parties enjoy playing their role to the hilt as if they were Mark Antony and Cleopatra conquering whole empires and each other’s hearts, as well.
Degree of Passion: The intensity and eroticism of this combination is also off the chart. This is because Leo adds animal instinct to Scorpio’s depth and intensity of emotional bonding. A lioness refuses to be conquered, but she will find it hard to resist surrendering to this man, which makes the thrill of the chase even greater. Scorpio can do all of his voodoo magic. Nothing will scare her – and that’s very refreshing for a change I’m sure.
Degree of Friendship: Absolutely none. The possibility of betrayal is so prevalent with this combination that you should never relax into casual camaraderie, not that you two would anyway. She is as possessive and egotistical as he is, so they should both watch their step. Scorpio, don’t ever assume that you are equals or friends. This is a performance and there are certain standards that are expected of you. You are courting royalty; the prize is worth it. And I’m not exaggerating by using the word “royalty” as much as you might think I am. Don’t get too familiar or she’ll be offended. Leo must realize there is a certain amount of crudity involved with a Scorpio. You can put your nose in the air and pretend to be offended, but deep down inside you love to be shocked. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Degree of Marriage: This combination has a good chance for a lasting marriage because both signs are fixed and loyal. Each is inclined to marry only for love, and when that is the basis of a partnership it can be very bonding because it is very real.
Progression of Relationship: She is a beast of the jungle and loves to be stalked. The Leo lady will stay one step ahead all the way to the finish line. But when the fun of the hunt is over these two may have trouble with a mundane lifestyle; scorpions and lions are not natural friends. If, however, they get past the lurch from pursuit to domesticity, they may be surprisingly compatible. A happy and fulfilled Leo will not stray. And an unhappy Scorpio won’t leave, though he may cheat. If allowed to save face, a Leo lady will probably look the other way during a necessary indiscretion.
Sex: Sex is so hot it’s hard to describe on a web page. Think about touching your finger to a hot iron. Scorpio has a way of bringing out the drama in Leo, and after all, sex is a performance as well as an expression of love. The Leo woman is capable of being a voyeur to his emotional depth. She can be swept away by his passion and taken places she would never ordinarily visit.
When It’s Over: This is a combination that can end tragically. Both signs are apt to dramatize slights and hurts. They are not good at kissing and making up. Both the lion and the scorpion are likely to exaggerate wrongs and create scenarios of betrayal and devastation which are unnecessarily heavy and oppressive. Just because two people fall out of love doesn’t mean they intentionally meant to hurt each other.
