Leo Men and Compatibility
Interested in learning which signs are most compatible with Leo? How about the least compatible ones? If the answer is yes, you’ve come to the right place.
That’s because I’m about to reveal the answers to those questions – plus many more. Yep, that’s right – this post is all about Leo men and love.
Quick Leo Overview
Born between July 23 and August 22, Leo men are gregarious, outgoing and natural born leaders. They are charismatic and dominating, according to lore.
At their core, they firmly believe they can achieve whatever they put their mind too. They can tend to prioritise style over substance, but their charisma and confidence mean that they often successfully bluff their way to the top.
They know what they want and have no problem asking for it.
Leo men have a healthy ego. They know their value, and very little can dampen their confidence and enthusiasm.
They suffer setbacks like everyone, but they never let this get them down for long as they know that you’ve only failed when you have given up.
Despite the strength of their ego, they like to have their ego stroked, and enjoy being praised and celebrated. Leo loves to be the centre of attention.
Leo, Love, and Relationships
Leo also tends to be a control freak, and likes to have everything his way, because his way is the best way, of course. He can struggle to make genuine compromises for the needs of others.
Ruled by the sun, Leo is one of the Fire signs. This fuels their burning ambition, leaves them with a heated temper, but also means that they have a warm heart and a great sense of humour.
They can be blinded by their own light, which means that they can lose sight of what other people need. But this is blindness rather than deliberate selfishness.
They are also generous in their affections and are always open and honest in their dealings of others. They believe that you get what you give in life.
They never lie about themselves. If they big themselves up, it is because they believe in their own hype!
Most Compatible with Leo
Leo men tend to be most compatible with Aquarius or Gemini.
Aquarius is highly intellectual and tends to form relationships where they already have a friend connection. They are open with their feelings and are willing to take risks in order to secure their happiness.
They expect the same openness from the people in their life, and give their trust willingly, though can be unforgiving when it is broken.
Aquarius’ main problem is that they expect their partner to share their ability to read their unspoken signals.

Despite Leo’s inability to pick up on unspoken signals, they make a good partner with Aquarius. They will develop a stimulating relationship based on mutual trust.
Also, while Aquarius will be happy to stroke Leo’s ego as needed, they will also have no problem calling them out when they are being selfish.
Far from finding this annoying, Leo will appreciate how this helps them be a better person.
Gemini are outgoing and always have a large circle of friends and love making new acquaintances. However, unlike Leo who is certain of who they are and what they want in life, Gemini can be highly changeable.
Cynthia from NumerologySign explains that their attention is easily drawn by the next thing, and they tend to adapt themselves to new situations, rather than expect the situation to adapt to them.
Leo men are dynamic enough to hold Gemini’s attention, and Leo’s strong sense of self can counterbalance Gemini’s changeability.
Meanwhile Gemini’s adaptable nature means that they can fit in Leo’s world, but their own passion for life means that they will feed off Leo’s fire rather than be burnt up by it.
Leo and Gemini will form a gregarious power couple always surrounded by friends. (See more on the traits of a Leo man).
Leo men tend to be least compatible with Taurus and Scorpio.
Taurus tends to be highly in tune with the needs of others, making them a sensitive and empathetic partner. However, they also have the tendency to put the needs of their partner above their own.
If their partner takes this for granted, then Taurus can find themselves extremely unhappy, though they probably will not understand why or see that their situation is of their own making.
They may blame their partner, even though they never asked Taurus to make these compromises.
According to Your Tango, Leo’s controlling tendencies and blindness when it comes to the needs of others mean that they can often take advantage of Taurus’ generous spirit without realising.
Their ego and needs can cause Taurus to grind themselves into the ground, resulting in a very unhealthy relationship.
In contrast, Scorpio matches Leo in their ambition and focus on getting what they want out of life. Unlike Leo, Scorpio tends to be secretive about their own feelings.
They are never dishonest, and cannot tolerate dishonesty in others, but they believe that others need to earn the right for access. Despite their own secretiveness they also have a tendency to be suspicious and jealous, and this can manifest in unhealthy ways.
Scorpio is the sign who is likely to check their partner’s mobile, and see red when their partner talks to another person.
As Leo and Scorpio are both controlling and ambitious, they can struggle to make the compromises needed to make a relationship work. Further, Scorpio may consider Leo’s inflated ego as dishonest, and this can rub them the wrong way.
Also, Leo’s outgoing nature means that they are always surrounded by friends and meeting new people, which can inflame Scorpio’s jealous streak.
Leo will struggle to understand where Scorpio is coming from with this, as they are always honest and will not see how their actions may be hurting their partner.
While our Sun Sign can tell us a lot about who we tend to be compatible with and why, love can be inexplicable and often breaks the rules.
When it comes to love, the best thing is to know yourself well. Know what you need from a relationship, and also which of your own tendencies tend to sabotage good relationships and work on them.
Leo needs to remember that just as they thrive in the spotlight and from controlling everything, their partner will enjoy the same things, and to learn to share.
