When fire meets fire, as it does in the Aries man Leo woman relationship, you can be sure of one thing – the flames are going to get hotter and hotter. For this couple, an instant attraction leads to a highly sexual relationship where passion and drama can become addictive. So long as something exciting is happening – for better or for worse – this couple are in their element. When dealing with the day to day humdrum routines of life, however, their compatibility is less clear cut.
The Aries man is very attracted to the Leo woman’s confidence, glamor and warmth. The Leo woman senses that the Aries man can match her assertiveness and she is flattered by his attentions. Both partners understand straight away that this needs to be a partnership of equals, if it is to work at all, because neither partner will agree to become subordinate to the other.
The problem with that, of course, is that the Aries man always wants to lead in a relationship – and so does the Leo woman. More than that, the Leo woman wants a man who will adore her, put her needs first and make her feel like the most important creature on the planet. The Aries man is not that guy. He’s far too selfish and self-important for that. He does love and admire his Leo woman, but he’s not going to keep telling her so, and she does need that constant level of approval.
In a quirky kind of way, however, this disparity can work in the couple’s favor. The Aries man wants to feel that he has made a good catch, so he is proud to encourage and display his regal Leo lady. In this way, pandering to her demands actually makes him appear to have won, in a roundabout kind of logic, so he may well go along with it. Meanwhile, the Leo woman will make allowances for the Aries man’s selfishness because she too senses that she’s dealing with a powerful personality. She is probably more willing to let Aries off the hook than any other sign, and may even become a gentle pussycat in his hands rather than the roaring lion she normally is.
Aries man Leo woman compatibility works on a practical level because their outlooks are similar. Both are financially extravagant and slightly irresponsible, so the household income could be rather unpredictable, but they like it that way. The Aries man works hard to better himself, which is definitely something Leo woman approves of; she in turn is determined to forge her own way in the world, which relieves him of the responsibility of having to provide for her and allows him some more selfish indulgences. Materially, it works.
Jealousy can be a problem for both signs, but their mutual passion is usually sufficient to overcome problems of this nature, if only after a series of blazing rows. This is a couple that often seems to come to the verge of a breakup, but always manages to find a way to stick together in the end. It’s a volatile relationship, but deep down this couple trust one another, and they understand each other on an intimate psychological level. For the Aries man and Leo woman, compatibility is a dramatic affair, punctuated by flare ups and make ups, but together they create enough spice to see them through the more boring aspects of marriage and into a shared future.
