These two are fixed signs, both are stubborn, both do not want to make compromises, both want things to turn their way. The aquarius one is the calmer of the two, more cerebral, and therefore prone to discuss the issues. Taurus, another fixed sign, and aquarius hang better together because they are down to earth, realistic and pragmatic. They will sit down and discuss. In the other hand, leo being fire, all emotional and a bit "arrogant" and with scorpio, the water fixed sign, being double emotional with explosive character, these two are harder to deal with. With these two you argue and fight a lot. The whole "My way or the high way" does not work on another fixed sign, that person would just leave. Fixed signs together make relationships harder. It's all a matter of recognizing the stubborness and ensuring that both make compromises, not just one of the two.

ok from what i know about both signs... that the Leo will seem too aloof to an aquarian and somewhat detached from the situation.. They wont want to talk about the situations meanwhile an aquarian will want to talk about it and this may seem a little "over dramatic" to a leo... they may start to feel smothered..

sex wise... from what i found online!

On the solar level, I feel these two signs, Aquarius & Leo, to be somewhat compatible, but in compatibility I like to look deeper into a chart and adding the positions of the Moon and Ascendant for starters.
The Sun is more focused on the individuals ego and less on their needs or desires.

You mean the opposite right? Because you made mistakes in your post, mixed up aquarious with leo. Should read like this:

"ok from what i know about both signs... that the aquarian will seem too aloof to a Leo and somewhat detached from the situation..

Agreed the aquarius may feel smothered, they highly dislike emotional dramas. I don't know but the leos I met were all dramaqueens.

I am a Aquarian and have many good Leo friends, but I could not stand one as a long term lover...too "my way or the highway", patronizing, and they tend to think their poop does not stink. I have pulled the traits i do not like in the long term about them as a Aquarian, but keep in mind they have many great traits too.. Just not the overall best sign for a relationship for me as a Aquarian.

That said we aquarians can be murder in a relationship as we often seem like we just do not care one way or the other...and it would be true;)

Yeah, I am an aquarius, I know what I'm talking about. Too much showing emotions makes an aquarius run away. Heck, I'm female and whenever I see a emotional/mushy scene in a movie or tv show I taped, I get so cranky and uncomfortable that the first thing I do is grab the remote and fastforward it. Alas there is no remote in real life but I wish. ;)

As I said, the aquarius is the rational of the two, will sit and discuss, as long as you don't use emotions or manipulation to get things your way. I know some women think shedding tears will make men go their way, it's a form of manipulation. Some may fall for it but usually aquarius people see mind games at miles around, you lose points each time you do that with them: aquarius people are honest and want the same in return. I'm not telling to stop being emotional of course but showing too much makes your partner uncomfortable.

It's all a matter of both working on the relationship and both making the same amount of compromises, ensuring that not one rules the relationship.

you are all right....i used to date this guy in high school and the sex was great, but the non emotional side of him drove me nuts.

and he will never cry. i don't think anything can make this dude sad.

maybe the sexual combination works, but not the intellect/emotional??

Aquarius are emotional just like everyone else but they handle with them differently than others. We put them in the freezer. So to speak. It's just that we prefer being in control and not letting our emotions control us. Since we are not emotional emotional like "emotional" people, we do not handle well emotions and we get swipped off a hell lot more by not much. Actually, aquarius are quite sensitive, it's just that we hide it well.

So when something happens, like someone dies, the aquarius put the emotions in the freezer, deal with the event in question, then 2 years later... get a depression over it. An excellent exemple was that one day I almost called my grandmother and yelled at her for something she did to me I was very angry at, the problem was that it was 20 years too late. And believe me, I was pretty damn pissed off. So, on the moment we're cool, we get hit by the emotional wave later.

So when I talk about making compromises, an exemple would be for you to be less emotional and for your aquarius guy to be more open and emotional with you.

I have a on off switch for emotions. I try not to use it. (I am Aquaruis)

You know its not so much that we aquarians are emotionless or less emotional it is more that other peoples emotions and outbursts do not affect us ;)

now, does me having a lot of sag and gemini in my houses make a change in any way? I did my chart and it appears i have a ton of sagitarrius.

he is like that....if something angers him and it is bad enough to piss him off he will let it out, but never show emotion about the subject only the anger. never faves the issue at hand.

TCO I don't know WHAT you mean! })

Well obviously I'm a Leo and have been in a relationship with an Aquarian for 17 years, so I'm living proof that it can work ;)

Lots of miscommunications and misunderstandings, but never a dull moment and no regrets :D

A lot depends on other chart factors - our moon signs are both in earth which helps things from spinning off into hyperspace...

one more question for the aquarians...how do we get to your hearts? in other words what makes you happy and/or melt so to say.

i am trying to play this right with him

Being open, honest and direct with him. As I said previously, stuff like manipulation, etc., make you lose points, and less the aquarius will be open and trustful with you. Aquarius need time to warm up, especially emotionaly, and say stuff that make them feel fragile.

Be mysterious. You probably think it contradicts the point above but it does not. Mystery excites the imagination, aquarius like it. Just don't say everything right away. Don't be the type of person who, after meeting for the first time someone, has told the person everything in 5 minutes about their life up to their toothpaste brand. Make him feel as if even after spending 50 years with you he will not have discovered everything about you, and I do not mean bad surprises by that. ;)

And, as strange as it might seem, to excite an aquarius, you have to start with the brain. So start thinking about subjects to discuss with him, (like history, politic, art, etc.) and I can assure that not agreeing with an aquarius is actually a good thing, they like that when people have an opinion of their own.

Also, aquarius tend to be geeky, so if yours is one, try to learn more about computers and stuff, or better, ask him to teach you if you're total newbie in this. Watch him get all excited as he replaces your hard disk. ;)

I second that! My Aquarian SO's motto is "I argue therefore I am"

Politics is always a good one. Any subject except personal stuff or talking about feelings, lol.

hehee Im a Gemini but my on/off guy is Aquarian and drives me batty.... he is sooooo hidden emotions wise and really shares... right now hes upset about things from 2 years ago.. i mean... huh?! it has upset him so much and hes not spoke about it for so long... hes let it eat him into this depression....im learning quiet and silence mean... hes upset ... but can take 6 hours to even get him to say that...

I am learning though not to agree with him as there usually is another option than his highway route... *lots of patience...* ...

as for arguments... oh boy.... its like fighting with a lawyer.. he can pull up quotes from months back.. that i said in passing!!

hes getting there.. im slowly getting there...

WolfyJames,

Fellow Aquarian here and am smiling at your sentiments about the Water Barrier's personality--lol. I actually know quite a bit about astrology (far more than I know about Tarot) but I enjoy some of your points about putting the emotions in the freezer--and then bringing them out 2 years later.

I am in my quarter-life crisis right now and am dealing with ages 6-23 at the current moment--which pretty much exploded all over me without so much as a hint that they were coming. I have no idea what I've repressed since those ages, but I'm sure I'll find out in another several years :). Frightening, eh?

But so very very true, esp. all the love stuff. Anything unique or smart will turn us on. I'm actually a Leo rising too, so I have a nice contradictory personality in love...can't stand the emotions yet need to be adored. Sigh...

But I think a Leo/Aqaurius relationship would work slightly better in the bedroom than the street. Any complimentary/opposite duo is a positive/negative combo; attracted to one other, with much to teach each other, but will repel one another in certain aspects. Socially these two are quite sparkly, but personal arguments are scary and never-ending. Combine their complimentary personalities with all that crazy passion/fury and you can't go wrong in lovemaking.

Maybe but Aquarius have plenty of advantages. When something bad happens, they do not cry over it, they deal with the event in question. They may be called "cold hearted $$%" by others on the moment but they know they can deal with it NOW unlike the emotional people around them who are falling apart. Aquarius are perfect for moments of crisis to have around. I remember reading here, I think it was about court cards, if you were to get badly cut, what sort of person you'd like to have around, the emotional type who would cry and then faint or the one who would coldly arrange your wound and patch you up. The aquarius is the second type. That is what I mean by we are cool on the moment but we get hit by the emotional wave later. We take care of things and people now, and people have to take care of us later, usually they feel better by then. Sounds like a good deal to me.

That said we aquarians can be murder in a relationship as we often seem like we just do not care one way or the other...and it would be true;)

Yeah, ever heard of the story of someone who says he/she has to go at a Seven/Eleven to buy cigarettes and never comes back? It's probably an aquarius who did it. We tend to disappear.

Having a expectation of you being there is rude. I as a Aquarius who does pop in and out of lives have no expectations when I show up, but I do bring to the table the friendship we had exactly as if only one minute has gone by even if it has been a year or two. I ask for nothing nor expect anything, but I am always hopeful of a warm welcome (and why not?)...I have always got one too....after the initial surprise. I love those reactions! I do it much less now then when I was younger.

One of the things with aquarius is that we need space. We are not capable to be with people 24 hours a day. We also have hard time sharing space litteraly, like living with someone. It's important that we have time of our own and also space of our own, otherwise we turn crazy. And we just leave. Possessiveness/clingingness is a big turn off with us. Independance in the other hand is a turn on.

Tell him how it makes you feel when he does that. Tell him you don't need him around 24/7 but that you still need reassurance and that he should tell you when he need some space instead of you being in the blank and feeling hurt.

I agree with this! My wife asks me if you are having a "your time period" just so she knows it is not her when I become distant. Strangely my kids NEVER feel like they are in my space to me rather they are a part of it.
