Famous Aries-Leo Couples: Jesse James and Sandra Bullock, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Sarah Brightman, Al and Tipper Gore, Warren Beauty and Madonna, Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry
This is an icy-hot combination, full of fun and adventure. To an outsider (actually to the other three element signs that are not fiery), it may look like they play pretty rough, but to them it’s fun. Have you ever seen someone get roasted on TV? This is fire sign territory. It takes a good, strong ego and the ability to laugh at yourself. The truth is, Aries and Leo won’t respect you unless you can stand up for yourself. When they push you, they expect you to shove back harder. This, of course, leads to great make-up sex.
How to Attract a Leo Woman as a Aries Man: First of all, for God’s sake don’t show any weakness. You must court her like John Wayne on a cattle drive, and, Pilgrim, you better have your stuff together. This lady is not very forgiving in courtship. As a matter of fact, here is a saying to carry around in your wallet while you are trying to bed this damsel: “There is no mistake in courtship which can be made up for.” For better or for worse, love is conquest between the two of you. She knows this as well as you do. Impress her with your confidence and warm heart and, if you can, compete in some way for her attention. That’s a real plus. It would be especially helpful if you could be the first to kiss her toes, bring her a mockingbird that sings, etc. Please be original and sincere. The Leo lady likes to be complimented, but only if there is something sincere about it. If her hair is not her best asset, it would be better to say, “Gosh you’re the hardest woman to date I’ve ever met,” rather than “What beautiful hair you have.” Ms. Leo has a wonderful sense of humor as long as you are honest with her. As far as gifts, please, nothing but the best. By all means pick up the tab, open the door, and worship freely at the throne. This lady gets lots of attention wherever she goes. Make sure you can handle it before you tread in this territory. You wouldn’t expect Madonna to sit at home and darn your socks, would you?
How to Attract an Aries Man as a Leo Woman: Well, to start with, you could say something pretty ballsy. That’ll get it off and running. There is nothing, repeat nothing an Aries likes, or needs more, than a challenge. Please do not cling, show signs of desperation, faun, or carry on emotionally. Not that you would anyway. Always return tit for tat, in good sport. You don’t need to worry about hurting his ego — it’s strong enough to take some good-natured bashing. There is a famous old musical called Kiss Me Kate which is either about an Aries-Leo or Leo-Leo combination. It shows the dynamic pretty well. Be exciting. Stay one step ahead. Flirt with other men in front of him. Knock him down a little bit. And keep one foot out the door, just so he won‘t take you for granted. My dear Leo, you have the catch of the zodiac. It’s worth a little effort to try and keep him.
Degree of Romance: These two wrote the Book of Romance. They can quote it, book, verse and chapter. In this relationship, they will have a chance to play out their wildest fantasies where romance is concerned. He can actually get away with saying the corniest lines. Mr. Aries is one of the few men who could actually deliver Rhett Butler’s famous line from Gone with the Wind: “You need to be kissed…and often…and by someone who knows how” without getting slapped in the face. The Leo lady loves to play her part — stage center — and she will have many lines that she’s rehearsed for years in her fantasies.
Degree of Passion: The Aries man may be heard to say, with a look of passion in his eyes, “I must have you. I’m an all or nothing-at-all person.” Passion is the special province of the fire signs and these two were born to play their part. Of course passion includes drama, not to mention melodrama, and exaggeration. Aries fans the flame while Leo catches fire. It’s an exciting, fast-paced, extraordinary combination that can last forever.
Degree of Friendship: These two can be great pals and if shared activities are a cornerstone of friendship they can be found hand-in-hand at the bowling alley, theater, or sports arena. It could be said of each of them, Aries man and Leo woman, that they will do anything once. This relationship should be full of firsts for both as they trade experiences and menu selections. Her: “You mean you’ve never had a manicure?” Him: “You’ve gotta go to Vegas and see a heavyweight match once in your life.” Her: “Let’s go to the mall and walk some dogs for free.” Him: “Why don’t you go ahead and dye your hair red. You can always dye it back again.”
Degree of Marriage: This is a strong candidate for marriage. After all, they speak each other’s language. Both partners are used to unintentionally intimidating others. It is such a relief to be able to let your hair down and be yourself, even if you get a little punchy.
Progression of Relationship: This relationship will be fast-paced and exciting. Aries — contrary to popular stereotypes — wants to do everything with their partner. Leo will bask in the attention. The Aries guy is quite a handful, but he makes it worthwhile because he’s bound to be successful at whatever he’s doing.
Sex: Both signs are exhibitionists and very comfortable in their bodies, even likely to be athletic. Sex is looked at like a sport and game. Have you ever found a perfect tennis partner? Then you know that when Aries finds Leo, it is like finding thre Holy Grail of sex. There is a sense of fair play, gamesmanship, and humanity in their love-making. They are somehow able to leave the power struggle and the emotional intensity out of the bedroom if not out of their lives entirely. This is very refreshing. Having sex can be like going on holiday and returning refreshed and exuberant and full of life.
When It’s Over: One thing that will be heard on both their lips — “I’ve never met someone like that before and never will again.”
