When two Leos pair up, there tend to be plenty of fireworks. Friendships will probably be somewhat competitive, and romances will passionate in both the positive and negative senses. Each member of this pair will want to be the leader and the center of attention, so these two strong personalities will probably either clash early on or warm to each other right from the start. A Leo-Leo connection tends to be beautiful or ugly, with no middle ground.
A double dose of Leo can be a lot of fun in love or friendship, and there is the potential to forge a strong connection. Two Leos are likely to have shared interests and lifestyle preferences, as well as a mutual need for excitement keeps things from getting dull. On the negative side, both individuals are proud, stubborn, competitive, and somewhat self-absorbed. Although warm and generous with their time, money, and affection, Leos can be emotionally selfish because they need a lot of adoration. They do best with devoted partners who lavish affection on them, so both members of a Leo-Leo pair may feel that they’re being shortchanged in terms of attention and emotional support. There is also no one to rein in the spending with this extravagant pair, so there is a risk that these two will end up with nothing unless their ascendants fall in more restrained signs.
One very positive aspect of this match is that Leos tend to be exuberant and optimistic, which can bring a sunny, positive energy to their relationships. They are also likely to have a good social life together and spoil one another with lavish gifts, fine food, and other luxuries. One or both will likely have a talent for cooking, gardening, or decorating, which can enhance their home life, and because they tend to be creative, two Leos may also bond over shared artistic pursuits or practical crafts.
In a business partnership, a pair of Leos will have plenty of great ideas and promotional talent, but may lack the practicality required to make a success of their venture unless other elements in their natal zodiacs incline them toward greater pragmatism. Leos are good at generating winning ideas, getting things started, promoting, and organizing at a high level, but they typically lack the patience required to complete the less glamorous detail work.
Note: There is more to astrological compatibility than sun signs alone. Other elements in a person’s natal zodiac also play a role. Ascendants (rising signs), moon signs, and other planetary placements and aspects also shape personality and affect compatibility. For example, a Capricorn with Leo rising will be more extroverted than a typical Capricorn, and a Taurus with Aries rising or the moon in Sagittarius will be more compatible with Sagittarius than a typical Taurus.
