There are numerous types of relationships to explore when considering compatibility between two signs. We grow up in a parent/child dynamic. Outside our family, we form friendships with other children and eventually other adults. We look for and find love. And, we go to work and have careers, interacting with employers and co-workers.
Each sign-to-sign interaction guides our behavior in every relationship. Read through this section to find out how each of the above dynamics works astrologically so you can experience the optimal way to communicate and get along with your sign and all the other signs.
The Leo-and-Scorpio interaction is one of the most intense and challenging. As the “I perform” sign of the Zodiac, Leo is competitive, playful, and confident. Scorpio is the “I transform” sign of the Zodiac, and is intense, powerful, and a change agent. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is possible thanks to the fixed nature of both signs. However, this can be an overly intense and destructively passionate dynamic if other factors in the chart do not provide balance.
Leo Parent/Scorpio Child
The Leo parent and Scorpio child will present numerous challenges. Scorpio, as a type, is always trying to find out where the power lies and test that power constantly. Thus, the Scorpio child can start running the household if the parents show too much weakness. The Leo parent will want his or her child to be competitive and perform at a high level, which a Scorpio can do if he or she wants to, but not because the parent wants them to. In this combination, the Scorpio child can get too much attention, when they would prefer to accomplish it on their own terms.
Scorpio Parent/Leo Child
The Scorpio parent and Leo child is just as challenging. The Scorpio parent can be intense, with little interest in the attention-seeking reinforcement that Leo children need to build their self-confidence appropriately. In the case of the Leo parent, the child gets too much attention he or she does not want, and in the case of the Scorpio parent, the Leo does not get enough of the attention he or she craves and needs. But due to their fixed nature, they will not be able to disengage, which makes it very important for them to figure out how to interact positively.
Leo Friend/Scorpio Friend
Leo and Scorpio friends are possible but would do best to take each other in small doses. Leo enjoys having many friends and a Scorpio prefers to be a mystery, even to his or her friends. Scorpio is very selective about friendships, so it’s likely that if there is a friendship, Leo is maintaining it. Since the relationship, from the Leo perspective, should be about having fun and being engaged in playful activities, and Scorpio prefers his or her privacy, the relationship can frustrate each one of them. They can be drawn together to see how much they can challenge one another.
Leo Lover/Scorpio Lover
This romance, love, sex combination has all the makings of a story like “Romeo and Juliet” or “Tristan and Isolde”. Leo is “I will do anything for a great romance” and Scorpio is “there are some pretty intense experiences I would like to have”. These two can come together with great intensity, and go their separate ways, with great intensity. The energies of each will bring out the best and worst of the other, which can be both glorious and destructive, so a long-term relationship that does not “burn the house down” will require some help from other factors in the chart.
Leo Employer/Scorpio Employee
The Leo employer and the Scorpio employee can work if the Scorpio employee is able to work how they would like and when they would like. As the sign that prefers to transform, the Scorpio employee will want to be in roles where transition or a shakeup needs to happen. They can be the “guard and attack dog” of the company. Leo will want to know that the Scorpio is loyal and making sure his or her Leo boss looks good. If the Leo boss is doing something shady, a Scorpio employee can be the one that reveals them or the one that uses the knowledge to have power over their employer.
Scorpio Employer/Leo Employee
If the employer is a Scorpio and the employee is Leo, this combination can be fraught with difficulties just like all the other combinations. Scorpio wants things done with passion and appreciation for the results. Leo wants recognition for work well done, and to have fun at work. Working under a Scorpio boss can feel oppressive, so this combination is best if it is short-term. Either that or the relationship does not involve daily interaction for either of them.
Leo Co-worker/Scorpio Co-worker
This combination is also challenging; really, there is no relationship scenario that is not challenging for these two signs. In the same way that the Scorpio employee cannot easily remain apart from Leo’s need for recognition, the Leo co-worker may overstep boundaries the Scorpio employee does not want to be crossed when it comes to being co-workers. The “equal status” may lead the Leo co-worker to feel it is okay to treat the Scorpio co-worker as “one of the gang”, while the Scorpio employee prefers to keep his or her head down and focus on the work.
