Leo and Aquarius is often a challenging and exciting match. The low scores represent the initial compatibility of this match. However, you are both strong willed enough to make this work, and if you succeed the scores would be much higher.
If you can both adapt to the others style this is a relationship which will improve steadily over time, and eventually rival any other match. The low scores represent a high initial challenge, and not a long term pessimistic view.
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 Leo man or Leo woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Aquarius man or Aquarius woman.
An unusual and exciting relationship, you really don't have much in common, however the physical attraction between you is likely to be exceptionally strong, and overall things will never get boring.
Your partner is a rebel at heart, never afraid to do things slightly differently from everyone else, or experiment in the face of criticism. You have a much stronger need for the acceptance of others, and may therefore come to admire this somewhat unusual form of inner strength.
Your Aquarius is likely to be an unpredictable and exciting lover, always keeping you on your toes. While not overly emotional they tend to be fairly spontaneous and often focused elsewhere. Don't be surprised if they're romantic in the supermarket and aloof during dinner. This can be either annoying or entertaining, depending on your viewpoint. If you like 'attention on demand' (many Leos do) then this side of the relationship may be fairly annoying for you at times.
Communication is likely to be a problem here. Your Aquarius will say 'blue' and you'll hear 'red'. In many respects this is just the tip of the iceberg. You're basically from different worlds. You're a doer, while this partner is more of a thinker. You're ruled by your heart, while your partner is ruled by their mind. You'll be drawn to your Aquarius's rebellious spirit and uniqueness, while they'll love your vitality and self confidence.
You both can be incredibly stubborn, and fights are destined to last for a fairly long time. Neither of you hold a grudge, however if you're convinced you're right neither of you will have a problem revisiting past issues until a clear winner is established (which could be... never!)
Regarding the negative aspects of a Leo Aquarius relationship, this is a 'big picture' partner often interested in broad and deep subjects such as technology (or astrology!) - by comparison they may find you somewhat self centered and intellectually insulated.
Meanwhile you may find this partner is cold, aloof, and quite possibly reluctant to make a commitment. They may also be far more critical of you than you might like, quite possibly reserving compliments to your thoughts and ideas, rather than how sexy you look or other areas where compliments would be more welcome.
There will be a very high level of physical chemistry in this match. Added to this, your Aquarius is up for anything, and you're highly creative, so you'll each inspire the other. You're both very confident in bed, making this likely to be an explosive 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.
You like looking at the big picture which your Leo may well prefer to talk about themselves often. This is a partner who likes a lot of attention, and may have a rather large ego. Their dominant nature may make you feel claustrophobic sometimes in this relationship.
Leo's love compliments and admiration, and often don't want to hear that they aren't completely perfect. Be warned that your analytical and sometimes critical mind will often not produce the 'correct' answer that a Leo is looking for! Your approval and admiration is valued incredibly highly by this partner. They aren't looking for the objective and unemotional feedback which you yourself would prefer (assuming it ever bothered you enough to ask!..)
Call it cheating, but you're ideally placed to keep your Leo content in this area with minimal work or guilt. Any personal feedback on your lion is best limited to words such as 'great', 'wonderful' or 'amazing'. Try to filter and block any sentences which begin with "you should.." and you'll find your life is instantly much easier!

Communication is likely to be a problem here. Your Leo will say blue and you'll hear red. In many respects this is just the tip of the iceberg. You're basically from different planets. You're a thinker while your partner is a doer, you're ruled by your head, while your partner is ruled by their heart.
You'll be drawn to your Leos playfulness, vitality, self confidence and fiery nature. If you have trouble not thinking about work issues this is a partner who can likely help. Meanwhile they'll be drawn to your rebellious spirit, uniqueness and fascinating intellect.
On the negative sides of an Aquarius Leo relationship, you may find this partner to be somewhat self centered and dramatic, while they may find you cold or aloof. It's likely you may not want to make a commitment anytime soon, and this may bring out your Leo's possessive side.
Meanwhile Leos can be somewhat arrogant and self centered, often looking down on others. This may annoy you, as typically you don't have much patience for any type of social status.
Control your Leos ego, and you'll control your Leo. Don't, and this has a much higher chance of becoming a love hate relationship.
Never a dull moment here, you have a very high level of physical chemistry and the ability to learn a lot from each other. Both very confident in bed, this will be a fairly explosive match, with your Leos creativity inspired by your willingness to try new things.
