Leo and Aquarius: Personality Traits

Leo is sometimes called ~the celeb of the zodiac~ because of their show-stopping personality. They thrive in the spotlight and are always surrounded by a circle of adoring fans—I mean, friends. Aquarius, on the other hand, is more like the scientist of the zodiac. They like to work alone and then share their discoveries with a wider community, working towards a greater good. Aquarius might think that Leo is a little bit shallow, while Leo might think Aquarius needs to loosen up and have fun.

Leo and Aquarius: Friendship Compatibility

Leo and Aquarius are opposites on the zodiac wheel, a relationship that’s also called “sister signs.” Like sisters—or any other pair of siblings—this means that they can form a very rewarding relationship, but they can also bicker like none other. At their best, Leo and Aquarius can help each other grow and become more well-rounded people. At their worst, they’re constantly butting heads.

Leo and Aquarius: Sexual Compatibility

You know what they say about opposites: They attract. And for Leo and Aquarius, this opposites-attract energy makes for some ah-mazing sex. Inventive Aquarius wants to try everything under the Sun, which is just fine for creative Leo. Technologically-minded Aquarius likely has an extensive sex toy collection, while Leo might have a bit of an exhibitionistic streak. Together, these two are always sexually experimenting and having tons of fun.

Leo and Aquarius: Relationship Compatibility

These two zodiac signs can either have a very strong and fulfilling relationship, or they can be a total mess. Fire sign Leo and air sign Aquarius have different but compatible POVs: Leo leads with their heart and Aquarius leads with their head, but both care deeply about their community and the world around them. Both are also very creative and don’t mind standing out from the crowd (Leo because they love the attention, Aquarius because they like to do their own thing). However, both Leo and Aquarius are fixed signs—which means they’re stubborn or even stuck in their ways. For a relationship to work in the long term, they’re going to have to learn to compromise.

Leo and Aquarius: Marriage Compatibility

Everything about a relationship goes double for a marriage or other committed partnership. While Leo and Aquarius can have a ton of fun together, when they disagree, things can be rough. It’s hard for both signs to understand each other’s POV and budge on their own firm opinions. Learning to fight well—by communicating openly, honestly trying to understand where the other person’s coming from, and by working together to find a compromise—is a vital skill for a marriage to work.

Leo and Aquarius: Compatibility Summary

As zodiac opposites, Leo and Aquarius’s relationship is either great or terrible—no in-between. If these two want to make it work, they’ll both need to learn how and when to let go of their famous fixed-sign stubbornness.
