Famous Leo-Aquarius Couples: Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate, Peter Bogdanovich and Cybil Shepherd, Sam Elliott and Katharine Ross, Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston
The Leo man and Aquarius woman is actually a very explosive combination. It starts out as an Attraction of Opposites but it can wind up with two willful and demanding individuals hurling orders at each other, irate and outraged that their orders are not being obeyed. These two may have met their match. They may also polarize badly along another line. Both Leo and Aquarius are teenagers at heart. Leo is the teenager in love with love and Aquarius is the teenage rebel often without a cause. They may start out with the Aquarius woman acting as if she is in love, being drawn onto the stage by Leo, then waking up to reality and trying to turn it into her favorite thing of friendship. You can see it gets at odds very quickly.
How to Attract an Aquarius Woman as a Leo Man: It’s pretty easy for you to attract an Aquarius woman. The problem would be how to keep her. You are possessive and demanding by nature, which is the prerogative of royalty. She is the egalitarian rebel. Like Princess Diana she wants nothing to do with royalty and could care less about prerogatives. It is not likely that either one of you will change so the prospects of this relationship working are quite slim unless both parties are young and fall under the “opposites attract” spell.
How to Attract a Leo Man as an Aquarius Woman: She’s going to love you because you are so headstrong and opinionated. Probably you are espousing your latest cause, be it independence from your parents or micro-lending in Third World countries. The best you can do for yourself is to not worship him. Not that you’d be too tempted to, but he is begging for it. Leo is looking for a loyal subject and you stand apart from the crowd if you don’t succumb right away. He will be astonished and aghast when you do or say something shocking. This puts stars in his eyes. He is so uptight and so concerned about what other people think, that he would never dare to do such a thing. You are like his liberator.
Degree of Romance: Leo is the King of Romance. Naturally he will try his best to bring it out in you but it won’t work very well. Deep down inside you really, really, really hate to make one person more important than all the others, which is what romance is all about. Also, frankly, you like to keep your distance, so you will likely keep the lion at bay.
Degree of Passion: Keeping the lion at bay is, of course, the way to enflame his passion. Remember the scene in The Gladiator where the lions came up from underground like a big surprise? That’s what Aquarius can unleash in the jungle beast. Quelle surprise. The question remains, once you have unleashed him, what will you do about it. You’re training him to do something that will annoy you to no end later on.
Degree of Friendship: The Leo man and the Aquarius woman have diametrically opposed definitions of friendship and can never fill each other’s needs. Leo comes on warmly, straight from the heart, loyal and pure. Aquarius is like the Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz — no heart — and though Leo’s heart is big, it is not big enough for two.
Degree of Marriage: We do not recommend this combination for marriage.
Progression of Relationship: Leo will try to proceed along a resolute pattern of old-fashioned courtship. Aquarius will keep breaking up the energy because she likes to throw a stick in the bicycle spokes — or a monkey-wrench, just for the heck of it to see what happens. If Leo proceeds through with the courtship, it is in spite of her attempts at destruction. Most Leos don’t have any tolerance for that.
Sex: Sex is likely to be frustrating for both parties. Leo’s enjoyment of sex is based on warm spirituality and close affection. Aquarius will keep distancing herself trying to make it a cerebral experience or an unearthly visionary vibration. The two will hardly ever agree, making sex most unsatisfactory between them. It can work if Leo is so self-centered he doesn’t notice that she isn’t participating or if Aquarius is so other-worldly that she doesn’t notice her partner is drawing away from lack of interest.
When It’s Over: Off with their heads!!
