Whenever two fire signs are in a relationship, you can be sure that it’s hot, hot, hot! Aries and Leo compatibility is hot enough to set the world on fire, in a good way. Both full of passion and self-expression, these two zodiac signs are a super match for a sizzling, sexy, exciting relationship.
It is, however, the type of relationship which can go to extremes at either end of the emotional scale. For both Aries and Leo, compatibility tends to be all or nothing, and both signs veer from exuberance to despair and back again with frightening regularity. Leo, zodiac royalty like no other, demands to be adored and requires a lot of attention from a partner. Unfortunately for Leo, Aries love compatibility can be quite selfish and doesn’t usually involve lavishing attention on someone else. Here the two partners can come to blows over Leo’s demands.
When the hero and the royal clash, it’s a power struggle on an epic scale. These two have huge egos and while Aries loves to win, Leo loves to control. There will always be an element of competition within the relationship, especially when it comes to decision making. Given the impatience of both Aries and Leo, compatibility over sudden, impulsive decisions is quite likely – but these are decisions that both signs may live to regret at their leisure. When this couple reverts to type, Arian bluntness can hurt Leo’s dignity, while Leo’s superiority complex will not sit well with egalitarian Aries.
Tempers will undoubtedly rage at many points during this fiery relationship, with both partners unwilling to back down. Ultimately, however, this couple has a lot of love and respect for one another, and they will, with a healthy dose of Leo’s pragmatism, find a way back across the divide. The fights won’t be pretty, but they won’t be terminal either. Aries and Leo compatibility endures because each sign offers the other something they lack. Aries provides Leo with the assertiveness they always knew they deserved, while Leo shows Aries the value of tenacity, and how to finish what they started. Very alike in many ways, these two fire signs also have a lot to learn from one another.
At its best, Aries and Leo compatibility reveals a warm, passionate and genuine relationship, in which both partners enjoy relatively equal power and status, and in which they share many of the same life goals and objectives. Both Aries and Leo are ambitious and determined, so this is likely to be a relationship which either is or will aspire to be materially comfortable. There is a slight danger that both partners will get so caught up in the pursuit of a goal that they forget to live, however.
There could also be a problem for Aries and Leo compatibility if either partner sees themselves as subservient – perhaps if one partner earns significantly more than the other, or if one partner has to play a supportive role to the other’s career. This independent couple need to both be successful in their own right, otherwise resentment can set in. It’s vital to remember that for Leo/Aries, love compatibility must mean equality, because once one partner’s ego suffers the relationship as a whole will be completely out of balance. Fire and fire together usually burn strongly indeed, but if tempers get out of control, fire and fire can be a dangerously explosive match.
Traditionally in this match, Leo, the royal, would have had the respect of Aries no matter what amazing deeds the hero had performed. In a modern couple, however, we might consider this pairing more like celebrity and celebrity – they both understand the demands of one another’s life, and they suit each other well….unless and until one partner falls from grace and is eclipsed by the other’s fame and glory.
