A Compatibility Guide for Leos

Are you a Leo, or do you have a friend, relative or partner born under that sign?

Leo Sun with Aries Sun ****

Here’s a really sunny combination, but these two are both born leaders, so they might need to take it in turns to lead.  Or they may create a group around them who are happy for them to host gatherings.  They can create a really feel good ambience.

Leo Sun with Taurus Sun

Taurus’ natural style is to support, and Leo’s is to lead, so this relationship can work so long as Taurus doesn’t harbour a desire to lead.  There may be some friction, as these two signs are squared, but at a certain level of relationship the two Souls can unite in harmony, and achieve much together.  They may share cultural interests, and practical forms of creativity.

Leo Sun with Gemini Sun

As with Aries, there is a good and lively compatibility.  If the Gemini is easy going, then the relationship will be more harmonious, and Geminis tend to be adaptable.  Leo may well set the pace of the relationship.  This can be a very upbeat partnership, in which the two can create a lot of light together if they are both positive individuals.  Two historic lovers in this combination were Napoleon (Leo) and Josephine (Gemini), their romance recorded in his ardent letters.

Leo Sun with Cancerian Sun

People of neighbouring signs often have planets in each other’s sign.  Therefore their planets may mingle, which will give them something in common.  It can be a good combination for parenting, with the Cancerians #lovin’familylife and Leos adopting a paternalistic role.  Leo Mick Jagger had 4 children with Cancerian Jerry Hall, before they finally divorced.

Leo Sun with Leo Sun

Partnerings of the same sign are usually good, because there is a fundamental understanding of each other.  With Leo, there is a particular difficulty because they both like power, and this could lead to a clash of egos, or a battle of wills.  However, this could be a very creative combination, e.g. in a performing duo.

Leo Sun with Virgo Sun

This is a classic pairing, and not just because they are neighbours in the zodiac and may have planets in each other’s sign.  With the Leo penchant for leading, and the Virgo desire to give service, you often find a Virgo in Leo’s pocket.  These two signs seem to follow each other around.  For example, you may find they share a bond within the theatrical world, with Leo treading the boards and Virgo working behind the scenes to make a perfect production.

Leo Sun with Libra Sun

This is a lovely partnership, which can be great fun in art, music and general creativity.  They can really inspire each other, and Libran people skills result in a fine handling of Leo’s power issues.  For example, Librans can tactfully smooth things over and harmonize situations, and help appropriate boundaries to be drawn.  These two can share a love of luxury.  There’s a quote from romantic Libran Brian Blessed about his relationship with Leo wife Hildegard Neil (married since 1978):

“Every day I wake up with my wife and we both can’t wait for the day to start.  We hold hands and we’re immensely happy. The love just grows”

Leo Sun with Scorpio Sun

This could be a difficult combination.  Though Leo is an acknowledge leader outwardly, Scorpio has a desire to dominate emotionally and psychologically, and won’t let Leo get away with superficialities.  So there can be a running battle, which may be open or unspoken.  They are both strong willed and stubborn (Fixed signs) so would find it difficult to apologize, with Leo pride being at stake, and Scorpio conviction of always being right.  Where their partnership may be strong, would be where they have a common cause or battle to fight.  Power is also a strong theme for both of them, so you might see them in politics together, e.g. Bill Clinton (Leo) and Hillary Clinton (Scorpio), and they may have to take it in turns to hold the reins.

Leo Sun with Sagittarius Sun ****

Life could be a bowl of cherries with these two.  Leo is magnanimous and Sagittarius fun loving, and they would magnify these traits in each other.  They could throw tremendous parties together, and also be successful materially and generous with their gifts.

Leo Sun with Capricorn Sun

At first acquaintance, these two may not have very much in common.  Leo is hedonistic, and Capricorn can be quite austere or even ascetic.  So their lifestyles may not suit each other, although they may give each other what the other lacks: Capricorn can bring discipline to the table, and Leo warmth and trust. Capricorn can keep Leo down to earth.

Leo Sun with Aquarius Sun

These two are opposites, and therefore can be complementary and create a whole.  At a lower level of interaction, there can be tension, but the relationship is worth working at.  Aquarius understands group work, and Leo understands how to maintain individuality within a group, so they may find themselves working in society for the common good.  They have a hotline to each other.  Leo admires the Aquarian cool, and Aquarius admires the Leo flair.

Leo Sun with Pisces Sun

The angle between the two Suns may not be entirely easy, but they have much to give each other.  They are both creative in different ways, and may both be interested in the theatre.  Leo is a master at performance, and Pisces acts with great sensitivity and intuition.  Their creativity together can be inspired.

There are two trines to look forward to this week, in the middle of some more complex aspects, but that is a solid core you can build on.

On Sunday (14th) Neptune opposes Venus, which may complicate dealings in relationships and finance.  All may not be as it seems.  Someone may be putting on a front, or disguising their real feelings – a wolf in sheep’s clothing, perhaps, or mutton dressed as lamb…But you may see the mask slip at some point.  It may be you yourself who are wrestling with your true feelings, or trying not to hurt someone.  Either way, there could be some sensitive scenarios socially.

On the financial front, some money may disappear or slip through your fingers.  Make sure you have your hands on your purse, when you are socializing with the wolves and the sheep.  And if that all sounds a bit paranoid, then make sure you know where you keep your paranoia so that you can deal with it appropriately, either by inspecting it or letting it go (according to your philosophy).  Financial investments, stocks or shares, may temporarily experience bizarre fluctuations, especially for Neptunian substances such as oil.  It is a time when you might feel that your finances are not on a solid footing.

On Tuesday (16th) Venus conjuncts the North Node, and there could be karmic readjustments in connection with relationships and money, which should be helpful, unless you have really been negligent.  It could be an important day in terms of meeting people, new people or old people, people from this lifetime, a past lifetime or even a future lifetime.  Pay attention to any unusual meetings, as they may be more significant than you realize.

You could literally experience a financial payback, e.g. an income tax rebate, or money you might have given up on retrieving that day.  But of course we can’t all be receiving that day: some of us might be required to be the giver!  You might pre-empt this by searching your memory for someone you may owe something to, e.g. a good deed, and intentionally balancing this out.  Feelings can be warm and fuzzy today.

In the evening, Uranus trines the Sun, which is helpful if you are brainstorming for new ideas, originality in creativity, and gaining clarity about group consciousness.  This is a particularly successful aspect for Leos and Aquarians, and for their interaction.  Any lessons learned that day about individuality and group connections will stand you in good stead for Thursday.

Thursday (18th) begins in the early hours with the second trine of the week: Pluto trine Venus.  You could feel certain themes you have been working on earlier on in the week coming together satisfyingly, especially in finance and relationships.  In struggling with these themes, you may have come across solutions which are able to stick.  You may have accessed a deeper level of understanding about these, and the knowing of your heart confirms the rightness of this new way of dealing with them.

By breakfast time, or more accurately late breakfast (in the U.K.) or a late lie-in (9.27 a.m.) another preoccupation may be tugging at your attention, and this is related to the themes of Tuesday evening: individuality and group interaction.  You might feel overwhelmed by the Full Moon in Aquarius which is occurring.  You may be pondering your place in your community, and how you fit into it.  This is one of the conundrums set by this Full Moon, and the rest of the day, and indeed the rest of the week, may be a coming to terms with your conclusions.

The week in bullet points:

  • Sunday – look beyond the surface
  • Tuesday – karmic harmony and creative brilliance
  • Thursday – deep satisfaction but emotional tension
