Aries and Leo are both fire signs, so when these two come together in any relationship, there will be fireworks of all kinds. However, just like a fire that is left unattended, this is a coupling that can backfire or burn out of control if not carefully tended.

Aries and Leo Compatibility

Aries and Leo are both creative and fun individuals with lively spirits. Both are enthusiastic, both are leaders, and both sometimes seem larger than life. Together they glow and have a tremendous zest for life.


  • Are assertive and confident leaders
  • Are adventurous and search for fun and excitement.
  • Have lots of friends
  • Are full of ideas
  • Are ambitious and determined
  • Have bright minds
  • Are "go big or go home" types

This is a relationship that is driven by competition. Aries supplies the initiative and Leo can plan, organize, and follow through. As long as they compete as a team instead of against one another, this is an excellent Sun sign match.

As Lovers

As Lovers, there will be playful nights out on the town, lots of parties and celebrations with friends, and plenty of highs and lows. As a couple, they are affectionate, loyal, big-hearted, passionate and showy.

Sex and Intimacy

Aries and Leo are ardent and sexy. Their time together as lovers will be sizzling hot and will never be short of passion and energy. They have similar sexual preferences; both are all about foreplay, role play and various types of adventures between the sheets. Of course, when two such passionate individuals become lovers, there will be fights, but for these two fighting can be foreplay that makes their sexual life blossom every time they fight.

As Spouses

Much of the same energy that makes for the roller-coaster ride as lovers will follow an Aries and Leo into their marriage. Both are Fire signs and as the Fixed Fire Sign, Leo wants the marriage to last and as the Cardinal Fire sign, Aries loves the roller-coaster ride. Theirs will be marriage filled with active competition. One in which Aries encourages Leo to "just do it "and Leo urges Aries on to the finish. Loyalty and honesty are two of the qualities they admire in each other and both celebrate love to the fullest, but when it comes to a long-term relationship, the secret is for each to do what they do best, share leadership, and fight nice.

As Parents

An Aires and Leo are enthusiastic parents who love and are dedicated to their kids. Each has a child-like quality which makes them fun and playful parents. Both are leaders who can inspire their children to be their best. The Aries parent encourages the children to take initiative while the Leo parent adds stability and stick-to-itiveness. Parenting their children is a challenge for both, and together they make an exceptional parenting team.

Who's the Boss

The greatest challenge an Aries and Leo have in a relationship is "who's the boss." When these two come together, there's likely to be fights for dominance. Both are prideful, prone to jealousy, and have strong wills. But how bad their rows get depends upon the maturity of each. At their worst there can be scorching words, grandstanding, and childish unforgiving behavior that can burn out the relationship.

Fighting Together

It's meaningless for Aries and Leo to attempt to overcome their penchant for fighting because their relationship is based on fiery competition. Competitors must compete. They can fight and compete with each other, or they can join forces and fight for something together. When these two are teammates, the combination is undoubtedly one to be reckoned with. Their primary objective should be to find a way to enjoy the fight and have fun.

Battle of the Sexes

An astrological chart does not have gender signatures, but Aries and Leo are extroverted masculine signs. However, because of society's gender expectations, Aries and Leo competitiveness is more acceptable, more developed and more easily expressed by men. So, while both sexes of these signs have the same general traits, including the need for dominance. There's one small difference between the sexes that makes this combination between men and women more workable. Most Aries and Leo women are raised not to compete with men. Of course, times are changing. It's the era of the alpha woman, which could lead to a battle of the sexes in an Aries/Leo combination.

Relationship Astrology

Sun sign astrological comparisons can be entertaining and tell you a bit about what a relationship would be like, however, if you're a couple that's in a serious relationship, you'll learn more if you visit a professional relationship astrologer. Relationship astrology is complicated. A professional will interpret the couple's individual charts, then look at how they interact in a process called synastry and then calculate and interpret the composite chart which is the chart of the relationship itself.
