Leo: compatibility as a couple
In general, Leo loves to be loved, but is not equally eager to love. Leo needs to be in the centre or on the throne. Some couples get tired of that and leave. Others find it quite easy to adore Leo, so they stick it out.
When Leo sees signs of being well liked, the feeling becomes mutual. Otherwise, definitely not. So Leo is more curious and enthusiastic about love received than love given.
Still, Leo is able to love, firmly and consistently, when he is admired for it and when the love is returned in abundance. It has to feel big for Leo to ignite. Big enough to alter life, melt mountains and ignite the stars. A relationship that rocks the world is what Leo craves. Anything else is just a hobby.
Leo: compatibility with other signs
Leo, the knight of the zodiac, belongs to the fire element, which is the element of energy and activity. So are Aries and Sagittarius, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Leo is particularly compatible with them; they need to feel attracted to each other, which is sometimes elusive.
Nor is Leo incompatible with, say, the water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, although they are quite different. Actually, differences are important in a relationship.
This is most evident when comparing astrological qualities: cardinal, fixed and mutable. Each sign of the Zodiac has one of these qualities.
Leo is fixed, which means it is slow to change, more or less conservative. Leo wants to establish a splendid status quo, splendid for Leo, and stick to it. That does not go well with other fixed signs in a relationship. These are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. None of these are compatible with Leo, as they will insist on their respective ways, very unwilling to compromise. Both want the other to conform.
Leo is more compatible with the mutable signs, which are the followers of the Zodiac. They are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. They are much more apt to adapt. Also to admire, which is something Leo expects. But their admiration can jump from one object to another, which is something Leo finds difficult to accept. They like change very much, they don't know what they will feel tomorrow. Sometimes it's to Leo's liking, and sometimes it's really not.
With the cardinal signs demanding to lead, things can get complicated with Leo if the two of you don't agree on most things from the start, especially you must agree to praise and respect each other. Otherwise, the two of you will sooner or later find that you are incompatible. Besides, Leo can adapt to some extent, but cannot take orders. Who is brave enough to command a lion? The cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.
But nothing is set in stone. A relationship is complex. There is no guarantee what will work and what will not.
All the personality traits of each zodiac sign must be taken into account when examining your astrological compatibility.
