Leo Compatibility (July 23rd – August 22nd)
Leos often appear to be destined for success. Not only are the ambitious, often showing a great deal of fortitude in solving problems, they are also loyal and caring, proving they can be both strong and kind at the same time.
They do, however, have some flaws which do not click well with other Zodiacs. Despite their generally resilient exterior, they are also sensitive and their confidence is easily broken by harsh words. This can also make them defensive, which makes them appear stubborn. They also have such a high degree of confidence (due their own expectations of success) that they can appear elitist and domineering.
Their pride and confidence is both their strength and weakness. Though not generally overly emotional, a few critical words, and the Leo’s happiness can be shattered, because their happiness is tied directly with their feelings of self confidence.
Because of this, the best matches for Leo are those that are not going to try to outdo them. Taurus is equally as stubborn as Leo, and thus unless they share the same opinions, they are not likely to be a good match. Scorpio is stubborn as well, though these two occasionally have enough in common that they agree on everything, for the most part.
Virgos, as well, tend to be far too critical to be compatible with Leos. This criticism can easily hurt the fragile Leo ego, and unwarranted criticism will push the Leo away.
Sagittarius has a different problem. The two personalities actually get along quite nicely, and love and affection flow easily between
the two. But the Sagittarius does not always take the Leo’s feelings seriously, and can easily upset the Leo without realizing their mistake.
The Libra and the Leo, however, are remarkably compatible. They both have the ability to make the other feel unique and special, while still being energetic enough to entertain each other. Libras are also very flexible with their opinions and emotions, which work well with the stubborn Leo.
Unlike many of the other Zodiacs, however, Leos often are not compatible with other Leos, as they are stubborn, proud and competitive. Leos do respond well to independence, as is seen with Aries and Aquarius, though not to the same emotional level that they achieve with some of the other Zodiacs.
Leos do not respond well with Capricorns at all, who tend to not show or share any emotions. Pisces, as well, is not necessarily right for the Leo’s temperament, though they are neither competitive nor stubborn, so there are times where the two will mesh.
Leos are the rare mixture of caring and strength. Their stubbornness and sensitivity do not make them right for everyone, but if a compatible partner allows them to have their opinion and treats the Leo with respect, most relationships have the potential to work out well.
