Leo, the regal Lion is ruled by the shining Sun but Aquarius, the Water-Bearer, is ruled by cool, structured Saturn and eccentric Uranus, so the attraction of opposites in intense. When these two powerhouses get together, the flames of love burn bright.
Aquarius and Leo are both Fixed Signs, so, even though you are natural partners, ego-conflicts can spark up, especially when your authority is questioned. Luckily these conflicts can almost always be resolved between the sheets, for Aquarius, being fond of the new and unusual, can introduce some fascinating variations to the boudoir. The Water Bearer is often accused, with some justification, of being unduly emotionally detached and even somewhat clinical. Since you are big-hearted, generous and love to be centre-stage, this can be rather annoying, especially should your quirky Aquarian’s attention be caught by some lesser breed of zodiacal beast. You need to smooth out these superficial personality conflicts, for at a deeper level, you are very well-matched.
The Sun, center of our solar system, is the ruler of the heart, so you are naturally loyal and true, while Aquarius, always interested in things that are off the wall, can be rather more promiscuous than you would like. The inquiring Aquarian mind can also be more critical than you are used to, so this can be rather unpleasantly deflating. The plus side is that Aquarius is original and creative in every way, but especially in matters of the heart, so can take you down some exciting new pathways.
Your grand sense of social awareness can encourage the often somewhat reclusive Water Bearer to come out more into the limelight, while Aquarius in turn brings a cooler, more intellectual quality to the partnership. The Water Bearer is focused on exploring singular, original pathways, the discovery and structuring of new knowledge. The Water Bearer hates to be tied down, but if you can restrain your possessive streak, you’ll admire your partner’s intellect and wide-ranging interests, while he or she will respond to the warm embrace in the Lion’s den.
Basically, Leo is physical and Aquarius is mental. You have different views of independence: to you it means pursuing a glamorous, extravagant lifestyle; to Aquarius it means freedom to explore new horizons.
Together you can make a great team, but if Aquarius gets impatient with your constant need for adulation, or objects to your imperious manner, 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.
