Earth + Fire = Lava
You couldn’t find two more diametrically opposed characters than Capricorn and Leo. Leo is warm, zesty and bubbling over with a desire to share their experience of life with everyone. This is the absolute opposite of Capricorn’s down-to-earth approach.
At the most fundamental level your two star signs are very different. Leo’s fire and your earthiness are not elements that blend well. Your contrasting energies can provide some interesting times, but only if you compromise and meet each other halfway.
The Sun, which rules Leo, is bright, warm and outwardly oriented; Saturn, your ruler, has a cool, reflective and inward nature. You’re introverted and solitary and don’t mind your own company. In fact, you sometimes even prefer to work behind the scenes. Leo is an attention seeker, and wants recognition for everything. They love to hear their praises sung.
At times, you won’t feel comfortable around this bright showiness of Leo. It’s not that they make you feel less confident of yourself; it’s that you feel they’re trying too hard to gain the approval of others. And perhaps they will outshine you?
Also, socially, Leo is spontaneous and loves entertainment, whereas you’re more comfortable just relaxing in a laidback way. As the relationship develops, your urge for privacy and to withdraw from social life could become a stumbling block from Leo’s point of view.
In matters of sensuality, you are in favor of habits, and sticking to them, whereas Leo is more prepared to try new things. This will require some adjusting, from both of you. The very basic differences in the way each of you expresses yourself are obvious here… at least at the start.
There is a slim chance for this combination, but only if Leo is sensitive to your attitudes and works hard to lighten your view of life and get you to take yourself a little less seriously. But it won’t be an easy job to change you.
Be cautious with Leos born between July 23 and August 4. They are double Sun characters who can burn up your cool demeanor and create difficulties for you. You won’t have any common ground in the way you spend or save money either.
You’ll probably fare best with Leos born between August 5 and August 13, because they’re not antagonistic towards you. They are full of optimism. You’ll also like their generosity and breadth of vision.
Leos born between August 14 and August 22 are not compatible with you. They’re highly motivated but not amenable to your advice or your way of doing things.
