Fiery Leo Moon is a fire in the hearth, warming all who come forth. Watery Scorpio Moon is like the deep, dark ocean, full of unseen wonders and terrors. They are both stubborn. They are both strong-willed. They are both interested in getting other people to do what they want. But they are not alike in any other way, and if they don't instantly hate each when they meet, then it's got to be some other astrological factor that brings them together. Leo Moon needs to be admired. Scorpio Moon needs to penetrate under the surface. Scorpio Moon thinks Leo Moon is shallow, and Leo Moon thinks Scorpio Moon is evil.
But for the sake of argument, let's take an imaginative walk through a possible mating and marriage of these two. Leo Moon is actually drawn in by Scorpio Moon because it just can't seem to get Scorpio Moon to think it's great. It really wants to impress Scorpio Moon. It tries everything. It wines, dines, and whisks it away to exotic lands. It becomes a virtuoso in bed. And yet, Scorpio Moon isn't convinced. Scorpio Moon wants someone who lives below the surface, someone who doesn't want to be in the spotlight but to explore the shadows. Leo Moon just won't go there, and Scorpio Moon is afraid of the light of the Sun. It doesn't want to give in and enjoy the simple things in life.
If they actually do have a wedding, it will be after a major argument. Scorpio Moon would rather elope and marry at midnight, and Leo Moon can't imagine not having friends and family there. Scorpio Moon hates all of Leo Moon's many friends and is jealous of having to share Leo Moon with all of them.
If these two actually stick together, then it will not be a happy life. Scorpio Moon needs to explore and dig deep, and it doesn't care for most of the socializing Leo Moon needs to do. And it hates Leo Moon's garish, loud taste. Leo Moon, on the other hand, hates how moody Scorpio Moon gets, and how it just seems to suspect everything. Why can't Scorpio Moon simply accept a compliment without thinking Leo Moon has an ulterior motive? Leo Moon's motive is simple: it wants a compliment back.
The worst-case scenario is that an unhappy Scorpio Moon bides its time, plans, saves, and then makes a quiet exit, possibly with another lover. Leo Moon is blindsided. Of course, it always knew: it spent its time getting involved with friends and activities, shopping, focusing on the kids. It may even have an affair or two just because it misses the attention. The blame game starts, and they wonder what attracted them to each other in the first place.
Leo Moon likes sex because it wants to feel sexy and attractive. Scorpio Moon likes sex because it allows it to surrender completely to another person, or have another person surrender to it. It is the most sexual sign in the zodiac. Nothing is taboo, nothing is off-limits. Scorpio Moon wants to indulge in all the possibilities of sex, from one extreme to another. While Leo Moon has no problem being on top or dominating, it doesn't enjoy being submissive in any sense, and it can't even pretend to enjoy being submissive to Scorpio Moon.
Scorpio Moon needs Leo Moon to be deeply in the moment, without worry about what it looks like, or how good it's doing. It just wants Leo Moon to enjoy the pure, raw, carnal surrender of sex, but it can't. Leo Moon needs sex to be theatrical to some extent, and Scorpio Moon needs it to be dirty, discreet, and a world away from the world. Leo Moon just doesn't want to get that deep. This makes Scorpio Moon even more incensed to follow its sexual desires somewhere else.
There have to be other astrological factors to make this one work. These two are simply too incompatible. There is also the additional problem that what Leo Moon wants and needs is more socially acceptable and easier to obtain than what Scorpio Moon wants. Ours is not a society that really encourages people to go to the limits of their longing and seek out their true passions; it encourages people to amount to something in the eyes of the world.
If Leo Moon can learn to make Scorpio Moon feel as if it can explore love and sex deeply, and that it doesn't have to be happy all the time, then Scorpio Moon can lighten up. Scorpio Moon, however, has to learn to let Leo Moon shine its crazy light. Sometimes, some things can be taken at face value.
