Why Aquarius and Leo are Attracted to Each Other

Updated on December 14, 2016

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, 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 that 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 over crowded 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 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 admitting 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.

Overall:
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 it's 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.

Extra Concerns

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?

      True for the most part however there are some parts of the Leo personality I’m not convinced with but I don’t believe every sign can be the same completely. Interesting read tho, thank you

      I just started talking to my Aqua man last year November. We instantly connected mentally. I met him back in 2010. I was attracted to him physically when I first saw him. It was like a crush thing. Now that we started talking I'm more attracted mentally than physically. He asked me out on a date, I told him that I'm not where he lives at. He didn't care he's willing to travel to see me. That was an instant turn on. So we made plans to meet in couple days hopefully he comes and we can physically connect as we did mentally. One thing I notice is that these 2 signs move too fast with eachother. I honestly think it's because we connect so strong. We're so different yet alike. We instantly open up with no lies. Even though I can tell he doubts our relationship sometimes. He told me I seem too good to be true. But I'm just myself with him. I told him what to expect from me and he was amazed with what I told him. He said if everything is true in what I said then I'm right for him. I have no worries because I spoke nothing but the truth. He likes fire in his life. I told him well I'm fire. I read a lot about his sign to help me understand why he becomes distant at times. I totally understand him much better. It's a challenge for me but I'm a lioness I love a challenge. Maybe the reason why I'm so crazy for him. He needs his space I'll give him all the space he needs I'll never trap him to show me attention. I know that he'll show me it eventually. I got my two kids to keep me busy. I got friends and family too. My ex prepared me for this relationship that's why I'm so confident that I can do it. He talks about marrying me and having a daughter together, and he told me he loves me, which in that part scares me because I was reading about they don't like to commit. If he's serious and telling the truth he's a lucky guy because everything he looks for I have. I notice when I don't hit him up he always does. It's like I give him a great feeling then disappear. I don't know why that works but I'll keep doing that cause that keeps him coming back for more. I can tell he likes to chase not to be chased. Even though they love the attention to then ignore. U gotta learn to work around their ways. When u completely understand them u can have them all to yourself. U can have him as crazy for u as u are for them. The key is to have confidence, to have trust, give them space to live their life, know that they're not like us Leos, be yourself but lower the demanding part for attention and save that energy for when they come around because u will need it. Don't overwhelm them with everything at once. Surprise them with something new every time y'all talk or spend time together. Treat them more like a friend than a spouse. Treat them special at times not always it'll make them feel like you're forcing yourself on them. Even though we're naturally love in that way as Leo.Tell them sweet little truths and words here and there.They like that. U gotta become selfless. When u do don't expect nothing in return they feel more relaxed and not pressured. Trust me when it's their turn to show love and attention it'll be worth the wait. Don't rush them to show love or attention. They're working on it. Trust and believe they're crazy about u. The reason why their so distance is because they're busy talking and thinking about u.

      #Good luck with your Aqua male or female Leos.

      I used to date a leo and we made tons of amazing memories and ofcourse unforgetable fights. We were the happiest, she told me she would never forget me even after 5 years being apart. I never forgot about her too. Lets just say things didnt go out too well both of us didnt give in so we both gave up because of pride. Lets just say she's the one that got away.

      Wow, Leo did stun me, We met in a time I needed some help. I usually will find interest in someone first by their looks. His conversation that night, a complete stranger, had me feeling deeply in love with his unique uncommon intelligence, gosh! He seemed so different than anyone I had ever met, and Its been tough, but I feel like I cant live without him. Hes very fun to be around with, his conversations, I just would like to listen all day and night, but every now and then, I like him to hear my debated opinion, take it or leave it, give it the benefit of doubt, but I do not force him to believe what I share. Im also one of the lucky signs with two zodiacs, Im Pisces under the 12th zodiac, and Aquarius under the 13th zodiac. I am more of an aquarius, but a very unique Pisces. Blessings to all.

      Love aqua! Leo chick, deep in lurve with an aqua male. God, he’s brilliant! Not my usual type at all. A welcome plot twist. Enjoying it for now, that’s all that one can do.

      Opposites attract. I feel we can accomplish much; both on a personal level and on a collective level.

      Even if it doesn’t prevail, I’ll always be a fan of Aquarius. They’re so misunderstood. Seen as liars and cheats, etc. NO! They’ll just front you on your bullshit. If they give you advice, fucking listen. It’s a gift, yo.

      No better placed zodiac than an aqua. Coming from this leo lady.

      I am an Aquarius woman dating a Leo man. I have to say that this is very on point. I don't typically read into astrology so much, but I dabble a little when it comes to relationships. Especially when I feel it's going great. I like to estimate the potential. I have to admit, since I started dating him, it has felt like such a whirlwind romance and I absolutely love it. I've never felt so loved in my entire life and I want nothing more than to make it known how I feel about him as well. We acknowledge that we are individuals and have our own lives, but that is not a hindrance at all. In fact, we support each other's endeavors wholeheartedly. I've never been so happy and sure of something in my life. I look forward to our future together. Even before I read our zodiac compatibilities, I knew we would work just based on how long we spoke before actually dating. It is nice to read that we are indeed VERY compatible just as we thought.

      Perhaps you're needing to relearn the sign and how it functions so you can improve your perception of it. You'll likely run into Aquarius in some capacity, and if you're not prepared for it -- you'll continue the same cycle.

      I just hate Aquas. They only know how to take and never to give. They will stab you in the back during your weakest moment, especially when you expect them to stand by you, for once, after having taken ALL that energy from you. They can dull even the Sun and turn it into frost. Never date an Aquarius man. Never.

      You make Leos come across extremely shallow and superficial and almost wimpy here.

      We. Do. NOT. Need. Attention!!! I really want to hurt astrologers everytime I see that highly exaggerated misconception. Oooohh...if only Leos spoke of astrologers the same way astrologers speak of us, I'm sure you guys would change your tune pretty quickly.

      In earlier astrology, BOTH Aquarius and Leo were SOLITARY signs! They were also both included as "strong signs" (strong, athletic bodies) but Aquarius was a "human sign" (favors reason but detatched from primitive emotions) while Leo was a "feral" and "bestial" sign and THAT is where our emotions come into play. Not as "sensitivity" or mushy crap, but as ferocity, anger, and passion.

      So please get your facts straight and stop making the powerful and fierce LION of the Zodiac look like some show kitty. We're the lions for a reason.

      Met an Aquarius male last year. I wasn't ready for anything special. We were able to connect mentally and got each other right away. I do sense that he is at a disposition most times with himself.. he commands me and it turns me on more than anything!!! I love the confidence in Aquarius sun people. I love the take charge no non-sense dogged determination of Aquarius people.

      He's very much into telling me incredible things and yes , he's probably the smartest man I've ever met!! We ♌ have a hard time allowing anyone to interfere with our Independence , but Aquarius seems to read our minds and help to ease some of that underlying lack of self-consciousness that Leo will oftentimes face due to neglect and lackluster relationships.

      I am older than my Aquarius by seven yrs and that causes me to pull back intensely!! The more he trys to pull me back in with all his confidence and willingness to comfort my insecurities, the more I think about how strange this whole relationship is for me. He is totally into mental stimulation in bed and that too is where I have to keep up , having being used to being pampered by my previous partner.

      He wants red lipstick kisses all over and teeth marks in his thighs!! My mind has been blown and I cannot let myself go to him.. or see myself without his way and manner towards me. He is totally attractively packaged from his amazing witty charm to his balanced mind and ideas of gold. So friggin smart it drives me absolutely crazy in the best way.. he is totally attracted/devoted / proud / supportive / and protective of me..

      I cannot do anything except to treat him kingly..

      I'm an Aquarius female married to a Leo male. There was an instant fire both mentally and physically but as time passed we realized our ideologies were quite different. It has taken some time but we know how to balance each other and accept each other. He keeps me from staying in La-La land too long and I make sure he lets others speak and have their turn in the limelight. It works both ways. It can be a very complicated relationship, but he always keeps me guessing and I can always make him laugh with my quirks.

      Leo Aquarius ❤️ 

      10 months ago

      Im a leo male and have just met a Aquarius Woman, the emotional and sexual attraction was instant. I have been reading alot about the leo being very open and warming but also expects the same in return .. no comment! However due to past and some what intense relationships, falling for similar types , I have learned to not question or expect to much from the cooler zodiac sighn and have become more aware of still being able to give as much as i need to, at the same time as knowing its doing alot of good, even though there may not always be a big instant reaction.. Giving a little time and patiance „ can be more rewarding and adventures with the more held back zodiacs on the long run and have actually found out that’s also what i need.. Other past relationships ive had became more dull that led to a boring end if you get the same things back to fast.. i try to not play emotional games on others or my self but to always have a little challenge to convince someone and recieving something in return after time , seems to be the reward. So thx for the great leo Aquarius knowledge ive been reading about here. Wish me luck

      I’m a Leo and have been in a serious relationship with my Aquarius for 5 years! We are good for each other in many ways. He keeps me grounded and focused and I feel that I lift him up and feed his confidence. I would like to see the relationship go to the next step as in marriage and being a Leo I can be very forward about this. Should I not speak my mind about this to him?
