Why Aquarius and Leo Are Attracted to Each Other
Aquarius and Leo
Two fixed signs, the heart of winter and the heart of summer. A union of opposites and a union of surprising similarities. One is the sun, one is the moon. Perfect masculine energy with perfect feminine energy. A burst of creativity, stubbornness, and dynamic. They may seem like opposites, but the two have more in common than not. They both feel misunderstood, they both have a high streak for being stubborn, and are natural born leaders. Leos are warm, need pampering, and are giving. Aquarius is very independent, freedom loving, and eccentric. The two are like yin and yang, in all honesty.
Leo as a yang is going to be strongly attracted to Aquarius in what it has to offer. The two may feel complete around each other, and even understand each other instantly. Though they come at each other with different criteria. Aquarius is very yin; they love to be chased, they love to set a scene, and they are trying to get you to call them.
Leo and Their Attraction to Aquarius
Leo will have to be authentic with ever existential Aquarius.
Leo loves to be pampered, doted on, and loves to be vain. They are into their looks, their minds, their everything. Aquarius will enjoy that they like themselves so much, but Aquarius may get annoyed if Leo isn't authentic. Aquarius will then question the reality of the relationship. It's really easy for most zodiac signs to know how to praise a Leo, since they are constantly craving that affection. They are also highly giving— they love to dish out compliments. They want a back and forth relationship; they want to be recognized and they want that to be mirrored back. An Aquarius would love to have this energy in their life. They can feel like royalty in the presence of a Leo. They want that kind of hardcore romance, and what they offer in return is their originality, their imagination, and their eccentric ways. Leo is more naturally into a romance; Aquarius can be like a chameleon to match the interests of their lover. But they can feel overcrowded in a romance, so they need plenty of space. There's an old saying that fixed signs can get whatever zodiac sign they want, and this match shows that even though they are from completely opposite seasons, they can make a full pair.
Leos have a certain magnetic, extroverted nature—even if they do also have an introspective nature and need time by themselves. Leo doesn't leave questions about whether they love someone—they will flat out confess. An Aquarius often needs this kind of direct energy because they are always questioning the reality of things, but it could spook them. An Aquarius might get confused if you come on too strong because they don't understand if you're playing a game with them or being genuine. If you are an open, loving Leo type, make sure you come off genuine, and you are not just approaching an Aquarius on a whim. Aquarius are highly intuitive—you could stun them.
Aquarian Attraction to Leo
An Aquarius wants to help balance out their Leo partner. Leo is a bright, burning star and can sometimes walk all over people without realizing it. Aquarius, with a tender heart, and with great intelligence, can help Leo to rethink and become stronger and more empathetic. They need someone who can help them come down to earth without too much disturbance to their ego. But Aquarius is also a lucky type, and Leo would love to have that luck in their lives. It gives them an ego boost to have an Aquarius with them because they are hard to catch and keep.
Aquarius is revolutionary, fringe, and progressive. Leo will enjoy what Aquarius brings to the table. They like that someone is completely original and often out of place. Leo will want to help the Aquarius to fit, to not feel as lonely (but I don't think Aquarius likes to admit it's ever lonely. It likes to keep marching forward with its goals—she can be quite stubborn to admit to loneliness.) Leo will naturally help Aquarius to feel like they belong when they don't. Aquarius will help offer the mysteries of the universe to Leo, which will make them feel special, lucky, and nourished.
Strong air signs can be sarcastic, witty, and clever. Aquarius loves to look into paradoxes, has a brilliant genius mentality, and loves solving problems. Aquarius will like Leo for its opennesses to its originality. Aquarius will also enjoy Leo's wide circle of friends and associations. Aquarius will blend well with Leo because they both like bringing in people into their world. Aquarius and Leo are both intelligent and impartial. They can be spastic, hyper, and sometimes flaky. Aquarius doesn't always want to care about material concerns—they are determined to a fault to think about spiritual, metaphorical, and logical matters. Aquarius externally will come off as though they don't have emotions—but this is one of the worst mistakes you can make. Aquarius is like Jean Grey, and has a deep Phoenix side. Remember, Aquarius is a consecutive sign to Pisces and may share qualities with Pisces.
Leo is a sign of the will. A fire sign. But never assume any zodiac is without its thoughts or emotions. A Leo for its bright mane of colors can be quite the guppy for romance, for sad things of the world, and beautiful music. The Leo's heart can be moved at the drop of a beat. They will wildly want to be entertained by the world and what it has to offer. They quickly bumble into one context into the next, looking constantly for beauty, and beauty it can protect. Leo has a great deal of energy it wants to offer the world. Constantly wanting to make the world a brighter, better, more confident place. Leos will treat their mates like royalty; they'll pamper them, and offer a great deal of loyalty. They'll expect these things in return. A Leo that is without pampering will not be a happy Leo.
Aquarius can have a fear of commitment. Making a decision on romantic matters and sticking to it is really scary for this sign. They fear giving up everything, or that they'll waste their time with the wrong person. They really want to get their homework right here, because it means something to them, not because they want to float around the world forever.
They have a strong sapiosexual vibe to them. If you want an Aquarius, you need to reach them toward their mind. Consider this the strongest sexual organ, the brain.
Aquarius needs you to understand them mentally, have great loyalty, and to allow them to go about loving people socially. They are very charismatic, but sometimes run into walls of not having good social contact with others, albeit, they have to make a new social network whether for a new job or they just moved. Often Aquarius struggles to have a romantic relationship because they fill up their schedule with hordes of friends and ideas. Aquarius is the second most likely to stay single; Virgo is the most likely to stay single. Leo will need to be consistent with Aquarius to work. Aquarius doesn't like to be the initiator a lot of times because they have such a yin personality. A Leo can really help them by being forward with them, but they need to do this in a gentle, warm, and understanding way. Aquarius can be weirded out if you are too demanding of a commitment. They really love loyalty, but they fear being possessed. They want to be their own person and have their own domain. So they really need for you to accept them. And if you accept them, they'll be appreciative of you and all your efforts.
Leo is all about self-expression. Aquarius wants everyone to be able to express themselves. There is a natural love that can happen here because they care so much about expression. Aquarius will need to delve deeply into loving their Leo. Leo wants all of you, all of your admiration, all of your interest. Leos make for wondrous relationships—they are going to be more of the hunter in this situation, especially since Aquarius is more like a mystical mermaid at the bottom of the ocean, making them a difficult but worthwhile catch.
What makes Leo and Aquarius such a powerful combination?
