Aries and Leo is a great match, you have much in common and enough subtle differences and competiveness to keep a continuous flame burning.
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Aries man or Aries woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Leo man or Leo woman.
You'll enjoy your Leos big heart, openness and sincerity. This isn't a person who has secret agendas or is emotionally needy, both things you appreciate.
You both want to lead and be in charge, but in this case it will provoke healthy rather than harmful competition and passion. You're both aggressive and full of ideas, and both enjoy adventure and excitement.
You'll find you're fairly equally matched in the fighting department. Both of you can be terrifying to other signs, but neither will overly intimidate the other in this match. More than anything you'll appreciate and respect each others zest for life.
Your Leo will always be able to make you laugh and cheer you up, and although he or she probably has an ego the size of Africa, they also have the charisma to get away with it!
You're likely to be the more impulsive partner, balanced nicely by your Leos ability to plan and organize. On the flip side, your partner is likely to be more stubborn than you are, and this can lead to a back and forth battle for control in several relationship areas.
Remember if you really want to get your way the key is often just to flatter your Leo. It sounds "too easy", but Leos often can't say no to someone they love while that person is praising them - try it!
One thing to be wary of though is offending your Leo. While they appears supremely confident they can be fairly sensitive underneath in the specific area of receiving criticism from someone they love. You can be fairly blunt at times, so this can catch you un-aware as they likely have an incredibly thick skin in many other areas.
No matter what happens, neither of you hold a grudge, so there will rarely be any long term bad feelings between you. One major exception to this exists though, and that's in the area of past lovers.
It's very important for each of you to feel like you're the best lover the other has ever had. If either of you feels this isn't the case then its one of the few areas where you can do some long term damage to this otherwise perfect relationship, so try to avoid discussing or comparing past lovers at all costs!
Aries Leo is a near perfect match sexually, you're both strong enough to handle the others incredible passion and wild side, and fiery enough to keep a healthy level of friction going at all times to keep things interesting. Your enthusiasm and your Leos playfulness make a great match.
It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the compatibility readings page.
Potentially this is a fantastic match. You and your Aries partner will understand each other without really trying, and have personalities which compliment each other easily as a team.
You're both aggressive, egotistical, passionate and overall FUN. You're both ambitious - your Aries has the 'get up and go' personality to initiate projects (which you may lack the motivation to do) and you have the staying power to follow the through (where they lose patience and want to move on) - you'll continuously inspire each other and cover the others weaknesses.
You can expect some control issues, as you both want to lead, but unlike with some other signs it often leads to healthy and inspiring rivalry rather than long term grudges or agendas. Your best approach is to make your Aries think that something was their idea. Master this skill and it will pay huge dividends in this relationship!
One thing to note though, avoid ever discussing past lovers. One of the things which holds you together is the desire to be the best lover the other person has ever had. If either of you feels this isn't the case, then its one of the few areas where you can do some long term damage to an otherwise perfect relationship. You're particularly liable to initiate this one, so be warned. Your Aries doesn't want to know if you previously dated a sexual Olympian!
This may be the first area that makes you really appreciate the strength of this relationship. This is an unusually powerful sexual match.
Your partner is capable of matching your intensity and passion, and there will never be a shortage of chemistry here. Your playfulness and their need to win will ensure you always have a willing and challenging playmate.
So is this article conclusive? No! This article is based only on sun sign interaction.
