Aquarius and Leo Compatibility
Leo, a Fire Sign and Aquarius, an Air Sign light up to make a hot couple — and you can be great friends too! Fire needs Air to blaze and Air is deeply moved by Fire, igniting a raging conflagration that sets you sizzling pretty well anywhere the mood takes you.
Leo, the Lion is ruled by the shining Sun and Aquarius, the Water-Bearer, is ruled by cool, structured Saturn and eccentric Uranus. The Sun, centre of our solar system, is the ruler of the heart, so Leo is loyal and true, but loves to be the centre of attention. In the art of love, Leo is ardent and willing, although not necessarily particularly creative. Aquarius is original and creative in every way, but especially in matters of the heart, so you can take the King of Beasts down some exciting pathways that are truly off-the-beaten track.
Aquarius and Leo are both Fixed Signs, so, even though you are natural partners, the ego-conflicts can be tempestuous. Luckily they are almost always resolved between the sheets, though, over time, even this can get a little wearing. Leo is loyal and big-hearted, but you are often accused, with some justification, of being unduly detached and even somewhat clinical in your emotional life. This at least helps to make up for Leo’s embarrassingly grandiose gestures, all designed to place the Lion at the centre of the stage. You need to smooth out these superficial personality conflicts, for at a deeper level, you are very well-matched.
Aquarius brings a cooler, more intellectual quality to the partnership, while Leo’s grand sense of social awareness can encourage you to come out more into the limelight. Leo can be bossy, vain and demanding, but you are so focused on exploring your own pathways that this attention-seeking will often pass you by, your own primary focus being on the discovery and structuring of new knowledge. You hate to be tied down, but though Leo can be possessive (out of pride and needing to be the centre of attention) the Lion admires your intellect and wide-ranging interests, while you are often glad to be warmly embraced in the Lion’s den.
Leo is genuinely delighted by your sexual inventiveness, and you are drawn to Leo’s fire and robust zest for living, but basically, Leo is physical and Aquarius is mental. You have different views of independence: to you it means freedom to explore new horizons; to Leo it means pursuing a glamorous, extravagant lifestyle. Aquarius is interested in the world; Leo is more interested in Leo.
Together you can make a great team, but if Leo can’t get enough cooperation (or admiration), and you resent Leo’s attempts to rule, problems may become unmanageable. This relationship will be exciting and potentially long-lasting if you can find other interests in common, so that when the fire turns into a firestorm, you can find a way to clear out the underbrush.← Aquarius and Gemini Compatibility Aquarius and Virgo Compatibility →
