As a larger-than-life Leo who loves the drama of dressing up and going out, you need an equally fiery partner -- like Aries or Sagittarius -- who can match your pace and lavish you with the attention you crave. Watch out for deep Water signs who will douse your high-energy flame.
Glorious Leo! Your sign is ruled by the brilliant sun and you tend to be creative, generous, and open-hearted. You live to love and be loved. You relish basking in the limelight. You are much more vulnerable than others know, for your cheerful disposition and self- confidence is often misleading.
You give freely to those your love, but not without a catch. If your love is not returned with adoration, you will eventually retreat. When you team up with an Aries, you two fire signs can have a great time stirring up all kinds of enjoyment and activity. If, however, your Moon is in an earth sign, you'll tend to sacrifice pleasure for stability, which may scare off your impulsive Ram.
You both maintain a youthful attitude toward life and an enthusiastic exuberance when you are in love. But your Aries playmate can quickly tire of most any game, and it will be important for you to have new tricks up your sleeve to keep your lover's interest hot. You tend to be more loyal than the Ram, and it can be disconcerting to you when they don't follow through on their promises or plans. The two of you fun-loving mates are compatible and there is great passion between you.
Aries can be as self-centered and demanding as you, so together you will need to mature and balance your needs so each of you can have a turn at being "the star." All in all, this is a high-spirited match worth pursuing.
You are one of the four fixed signs of the zodiac, along with Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius. When you meet up with another strong individual such as a Taurus, you will each have to learn to give and take within the boundaries of the relationship.
You have a big and tender heart, giving generously to your partner as long as you are receiving plenty of love, affection and attention in return. Your Taurus lover seeks simple pleasures and can be very sensual. The Bull is ruled by the planet Venus, which places a tremendous emphasis on the value of love. The two of you come together with a strong sense of love already established within. The work is to become receptive and open to the needs of the other. In this way, both of your unique ways of sharing affection can be readily accepted by each other.
You need a lot of attention. Taurus needs a lot of touch. You both have the capacity for unwavering loyalty in love, but you also each can be quite stubborn in your own individual ways. Without relief from harmonious placements of the Moon, Venus or Mars, your relationship can turn into a battleground where there will be no winner.
Ultimately, if you can get past your own self interests and learn to give freely to your Taurus mate, this can be a dynamic match with lots of material abundance and goodwill.
You love most playful aspects of life. Your naturally sunny disposition gives you charisma that can light up a room as you enter it. You can be very personable, as long as you feel that you are receiving your fair share of attention and recognition. You readily share the center stage with others as long as you get to be the star.
Your Gemini partner is motivated by communication and you can be entranced by their wit, charm, and delightful banter. When you are in a relationship with Gemini, a powerful and magnetic attraction takes place that lifts both of your spirits and heightens your mutual curiosity about each other and the world. You make great playmates, in life, at work or in bed. Creative sparks fly if you learn to play well and communicate with equal respect for each other's need for attention and approval.
If your Venus is in Virgo, you think your Gemini friend is a bit too scattered. If your Venus is in Cancer, he or she may be a bit too noisy for you. But with your Venus in Gemini or Leo, you will experience a loving bond.
The bottom line is that you may not be as natural with words and language as your lover is, but as a talented performers or artist, you really know how to put on a show. Together, you can be extremely creative and productive, while having more than your fair share of fun along the way.
You tend to direct your energy outward and may be considered extroverted. You are less inclined to consider the needs of others as much as your Cancer friend. Your bright and sunny ways may have to be adjusted to consider the emotions of moody Cancer. The Crab is often introverted, pensive and attuned to the feelings and sensitivities of others.
In a way, you are like day and night. You are the Sun. Your lover is the Moon. It will take some time for you two to adjust to this significant difference, but it will be easier if the Moon in your birth chart is in Cancer or another water sign, like Scorpio or Pisces.
Regardless, you demand attention and need to be affirmed with approval in your daily life. You can easily outshine your partner, who may be quite good at meeting the needs of another, yet requires less attention and demonstrative affection. The most important thing, however, for your quiet Cancer sweetheart, is that he or she needs to be safe and secure in an intimate relationship. You must ask yourself if you have the ability to give this kind of healing devotion to your needy Cancer mate.
He or she may not prance in the spotlight with you, but the Crab's power is in their emotions and not their actions. You will need to offer each other plenty of room to express your natural differences, while at the same time paying close attention to the inner and outer needs of each other. This can be a difficult relationship unless, for the sake of peace at home, you are willing to turn your loud roar into a quiet purr.
When the same sun signs join together in relationship, there exists the possibility for growth and self-reflection for each individual. You Leos need plenty of attention and affirmation from the world around you.
When two of you Lions unite, there may be some posturing and roaring as you compete for attention. One of you will want to be the alpha cat, but you're going to need to share the leading role. If, within the relationship, you each can remain good-natured, laugh at your own quirks and compliment each other, then you stand a good chance for success.
You are a creative soul and feel that you are special. It's difficult to confine your life to stringent rules. Put two of you together and you'll quickly learn how to cope with one another's tendency toward arrogance and pride or the relationship will self-destruct. You'll both need to learn to keep your claws retracted when you fight, or someone will get hurt. If either or both of you have the Moon in a more receptive earth or water sign, then compatibility is less of a struggle.
Underneath your apparent self-confidence is a vulnerability that can get the best of you. In a relationship with another Leo, you must stay aware of how you each can help one another with this sensitive personality trait. This relationship can be fantastic if you can get past the ego and control issues. If you do, you'll have many good times with your Leo lover, including activities with children, theater, sports and social events of all types.
When you meet a Virgo, you quickly realize that many of your gregarious actions are up for judgment and ridicule under the watchful eye of critical Virgo. This level of discernment can make you very uncomfortable -- causing you to become more vulnerable than you'd like in the presence of Virgo's analysis.
Your Virgo partner prefers to assume the upper edge of power in relationships, and will use their sharp intellect to efficiently take what power they can. If your Venus or Mars is in the sign of Cancer, this will ease the situation.
It's an interesting dilemma, for you seem to be more proactive, yet Virgo holds the cards. If you are as clever as a Lion should be, you'll find a multitude of ways to humor your Virgo. Underneath a veil of judgment, he or she is extremely witty and funny, and probably more than willing to laugh at himself once someone has called his bluff. You may feel pressure from your mate to perform perfectly, but it's probably not as important as your attitude. Once you settle on a harmonious balance of power within this relationship, you will be able to help each other quite a lot.
Your Virgo lover helps perfect that which your exuberance and effervescence creates. You can really fire up your Virgo, and if the two of don't become fantastic lovers, at least you can be good business partners.
Your charismatic personality is outwardly bright and naturally endowed with humor, drama and colorful dress. You love beauty, ornate costumes and entertaining friends and family with your generosity. Libra is the detached connoisseur of good taste and prefers refined modes of decor.
However, you both admire the qualities of each other's artistic skill. Your Libra lover may not fully approve of your many masks and antics. On the other hand you just might find your classy Libra a bit too stuffy. You jump in and get your hands dirty, but your partner would rather coach with their artful eye from the sidelines.
You will have many things in common and can share theater, museums and art classes. You will probably have distinctive styles that are quite different from each other. If Venus is in Libra in your chart or in Leo in your partner's chart, your styles may be more compatible.
Your dress preference may serve as a metaphor for other aspects of behaviors and life patterns that distinguish the two of you from each other. Even with these differences, you can find contentment and happiness with a gracious Libra for a mate.
Both you and your Scorpio lover have strong personalities and are quite fixed in your individual ways. There will need to be enough attraction between the two of you to overcome the initial resistance you each may feel toward the other.
Scorpios often find frolicking Leo a bit childish and difficult to understand, as they prefer their drama in private. They cherish boundaries and require more space in emotional situations than you do. You need dramatic and overt displays of love that you may not get from your Scorpio, who is more reserved and resourceful, careful of who they share their deep feelings with.
If your Moon is in Scorpio or Taurus, then you are already in touch with this conflict between what is expressed and what is held in reserve, thereby taking the pressure off your Scorpio lover.
The bottom line is that in order for this relationship to be successful, you need to learn how to be more introspective, while your lover makes a commitment to try to understand your need for attention. Given some common ground and support from a compatible Venus and Mars, you two can ignite a very intense and long-lasting passion that can fill your heart with joy and that can remain sexy throughout the long haul.
You can find love and happiness with an inspirational and adventurous Archer, but because you are both willing to live in the moment, you'll probably need to have a strong Saturn contact between your charts to give you the glue of longevity.
With or without aspects to Saturn, you make a fun and energetic pair. The two of you love to travel and learn about the diverse world around you, treating the world as your playground. The two of you could easily share interests in social events, sports and adventures of all types. Your Sagittarius partner opens you to new and exciting vistas and helps you to move beyond the scope of personal interest toward a larger philosophical and global concern. You loyally offer your mate an enthusiastic path to explore his or her innate good nature and humor.
The romantic exchange between you is easy and will keep your energy high-spirited and playful. This is a very good match that allows your passion to express. The success of the relationship may depend upon your ability to create stability in the most basic practical realms of life.
Your charismatic personality loves adoration and admiration from others. Your generous and loving disposition makes it easy for friends and family to applaud your efforts and creativity.
Capricorns, on the other hand, with Saturn as their key or ruling planet, are more serious individuals who, unlike you, can have a difficult time expressing themselves outwardly. And herein lays the rub. Without compatible contacts between the Moon, Venus or Mars in your individual charts, your fiery nature will feel like your Capricorn lover is raining on your parade.
Regardless of these other planets, Capricorn tends to be conservative and will disapprove of your playful ways, unless, that is, you are able to take full responsibility for your own well-being. If you can do that, then your Capricorn partner sees you as a valuable asset in his or her game plan to get ahead in life. Ultimately, both of you have self-interest in mind. You can be very aware of yourself as you observe the impact that you have on others. Your socially-aware Capricorn lover is more interested in external reality and the status it bestows back onto you as a couple.
Capricorn is ambitious, while you may just want to have fun and be admired. In fact, you may feel that you are being treated as a child and come to put your partner in a parental role. You'll need to be careful about creating this kind of parent/child set-up that, in the long run, can be detrimental.
If you can learn the virtues of hard work and responsibility, your Capricorn will be able soften and incorporate more play into life. This can set the stage for a committed and successful relationship.
Leo and Aquarius are two of the four fixed signs of the zodiac-representing a rigid, stubborn and sometimes unyielding nature.
You can be demanding and forceful if you don't get your own way. When things aren't to your liking, you can demonstrate a child-like mentality as you defend yourself against imagined threats, no matter what the odds. It isn't that you need to be right as much as you need to be recognized and loved. You just want your Aquarian partner to appreciate you. The problem is that Aquarius is opposite Leo in the zodiac, and your intellectually oriented Aquarius mate takes tremendous pride in rational logic. He or she is much more interested in being right. Recognition is secondary.
So, the two of you can go head to head demanding, pleading, and lecturing each other. This may sound terrible, but it can easily be avoided if you agree to remember two simple rules. The first is that you are ruled by the heart and need affection. The second is your lover is ruled by the head and needs mental interaction. If, however, the Moon in your chart is in an air sign, compatibility will be more easily within reach.
Opposites really do attract and, in this case, you and your mate are intrigued by each other and will be drawn into exploring the potential of a relationship. Your compatibility is not insured, but you certainly can make it work if you are both persevering and flexible.
Your outgoing and fiery nature may be easily confused by Pisces, who in turn can be baffled by your relentless self-expression and readiness for action.
Compared to the Fish, your ego is strong. You shine with self-confidence and a larger-than-life personal grandeur. You tend to think of yourself first, even though you can be extremely generous with loved ones. On the other hand, your Pisces lover is not particularly inclined to put self-interest first. They tend to be compassionate, gentle, and rarely put themselves on center stage, thus avoiding the spotlight.
In some ways, you Lions are a complete mystery to the Pisces Fish who experiences life from under the seas of imagination and spiritual, and through the undercurrents of feelings and sensitivity. Your Pisces mate expresses his or her sensitivity by way of humility, while you express your vulnerability by way of your showy pride. You fend off potential attack by roaring loudly, while your Fishy friend fears being eaten alive by the Lion. If, however, Venus in your chart is in Cancer or Virgo, you may be more mellow and therefore be more compatible with your Pisces lover.
In any case, you and your Pisces partner will need to find a genuine common ground from which to share your life if this is to be a solid and lasting union.
