The Lion in Relationships
In love and other relationships, Leos need to shine and be proud – that also means being proud of their mates. Beauty of one or other kind is necessary. So are compliments, both ways. It can be a good experience. Leo loves to love.

Who Is Good Enough for Leo?
Compatibility with other Star Signs depends on much more than similarities. Leo, the cavalier of the Zodiac, belongs to the element fire, which is that of energy and activity. So do Aries and Sagittarius, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Leo is particularly compatible with them – they need to feel mutual attraction, which is something elusive at times.
Nor for that matter is Leo always incompatible with, say, the water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, although they are quite different. Actually, differences are important in a relationship. If there are few of them, both will be bored with one another.
That’s the most evident when the astrological qualities – cardinal, fixed, and mutable – are compared. Each Zodiac sign has one of those qualities. Leo is fixed, which means being uneager or slow to change, sort of conservative in a fashion. Leo wants to establish a splendid status quo – splendid for Leo – and stick to it. That doesn’t blend well with other fixed signs in a relationship. They are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. None of them is that compatible with Leo, since they will insist on their respective ways, quite 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 object to object, which is something Leo finds it hard to accept. They like change so much, there is no knowing what they will feel tomorrow. Sometimes it’s to Leo’s liking, and sometimes really not.
With the cardinal signs, demanding to lead, things can get complicated with Leo if the two don’t agree on most things from the start – especially they must agree on praising and respecting each other. If not, the two may sooner or later find that they are incompatible. Also, Leo can adapt to some extent, but not take orders. Who is bold enough to boss a lion around? The cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.
But nothing is written in stone. A relationship is complex. There is no guarantee as to what will work and what will not, especially at length. All the personality traits of each Zodiac sign have to be considered when examining their compatibility in astrology.
Leo Compatibility in General
Generally speaking, Leo loves to be loved, but is not equally eager to love. Leo needs to be in the center or on the throne. Some partners get tired of that and leave. Others find it easy enough to adore Leo, so they hang on.
When Leo sees signs of being highly appreciated, the feeling becomes mutual. Otherwise definitely not. So, Leo is more curious and more excited about love received than love given.
Still, Leo is able to love – strongly and consistently – when 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 light the stars. A relationship that shakes the world is what Leo craves. Anything else is just pastime.
