There are numerous types of relationships to explore when considering compatibility between two signs. We grow up in a parent/child dynamic. Outside our family we form friendships with other children and eventually other adults. We look for and find love. And, we go to work and have careers, interacting with employers and co-workers.
Each sign-to-sign interaction guides our behavior in every relationship. Read through this section to find out how each of the above dynamics works astrologically so you can experience the optimal way to communicate and get along with your sign and all the other signs.
The Aries-and-Leo interaction is thrilling. As the “I am” sign of the Zodiac, Aries is independent, face-paced, and likes to take risks. Leo is the “I perform” sign of the Zodiac, and is romantic, creative, and playful. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) can happen, so long as both individuals keep the “fires burning bright”, which they can do! As is often the case when Aries is involved, the other sign will usually end up doing the “heavy lifting” in the relationship to make it succeed over the long term.
Aries Parent/Leo Child
The Aries parent and Leo child can have a lot of fun together. Aries, as a parent, can be very hands-off. If there is a strain in the relationship, it will be because Leo does not feel it is getting enough attention. The Leo child wants recognition for its efforts and talents, and Aries can easily be the “proud parent”. But if the Leo child gets too demanding, the Aries parent will have no trouble putting the child in his or her place!
Leo Parent/Aries Child
The Leo parent and Aries child can have a wonderful relationship, so long as the Leo parent does not get caught up in “how the child reflects on them”. Leo, like Capricorn, and Libra, can be very concerned about status and how family members’ behaviors “reflect” on the family name. The Aries child will be happy to compete, and win, but not care much for the pressure to “keep winning” or make a name for himself or herself so the Leo parent can “be proud.” If the Leo parent can keep that gremlin from showing up, these two can have a great relationship.
Aries Friend/Leo Friend
Aries and Leo friends can really have a blast and prove to be troublemakers, hopefully in a positive sense. After all, this is fire on fire friendship. They can be competitive with each other and together, against the world. Boundless energy is available. The “go for it” attitude of Aries and the “I want to shine” attitude of Leo is like a meeting of gasoline and flames.
Aries Lover/Leo Lover
This romance, love, sex combination can be hot! The romance, love, and sexuality are burning flames that can be all-consuming if both individuals are not careful. Some moderation would help but may be nowhere to be found in this conflagration. For this reason, a long-term relationship is less likely, but the intensity of what they do share will make other relationships hard to match up. If anything, Leo demanding too much attention can turn Aries off, and Aries not being terribly concerned with showing appreciation all the time can tire of Leo’s appreciation needs.
Aries Employer/Leo Employee
The Aries employer and the Leo employee can work if the Leo can be the “front face” of the company or his/her position. Aries will not have a problem unless Leo tries to usurp power from the Aries, which is certainly possible, and probably likely. Leos need to be moving up or filling a lot of space in a job. If the Aries boss knows there is plenty of opportunity for the Leo employee things can work swimmingly. But Leo tends to “go too far”, requiring the Aries employer to reign the Leo in from time to time.
Leo Employer/Aries Employee
If the employer is Leo and the employee is Aries, this combination is much better. Leo wants to lead and be the main actor in the drama of life. Aries really has no problem with this and can be the ideal employee that just wants to get his or her work done and leave the stage. So long as the Leo employer is generous where he or she needs to be, and when, the Aries employee can be very loyal and highly productive.
Aries Co-worker/Leo Co-worker
This combination will can have a lot of fun at work, sometimes too much fun. Do not be surprised if practical jokes are happening all the time, and they can be quite elaborate. Even so, both these individuals can be excellent workers, so long as they are kept busy and constantly challenged.
