What the Aquarius Man Dislikes about the Leo Woman

Her self-importance and materialism. Leos are egoic beings in search of grand personal glory and material acquisition. She puts a lot of time and energy into her appearance. She expects a lot of admiration and can be quite self-interested. Aquarius isn’t focused on individual standing and is more inclined towards the collective, like working toward humanitarian goals. He dislikes wastefulness and avoids frivolous expenses and he finds extravagance unappealing.

When she’s an over the top dramatist. Aquarius likes Leo’s penchant for spectacle much of the time, but dislikes her infatuations, resentments, and feelings of extreme anguish and elation. He gets especially annoyed when she has dramatic bouts of jealousy.

Her sense of superiority. She shines bright but can have a sense of authority and conceit that can turn Aquarius sour. She can believe that she could run everyone’s life better than they could – and she might not hesitate to tell them so. She can be a know it all and sometimes talk herself into believing her own tall stories. She doesn’t play nice with people unless they have status or are interesting to her. Aquarius will be put off by this, especially if she has controlling tendencies.

Her domineering side. Leo woman can be bossy, petty, and controlling.. Her competitive nature makes her want to control the events and people in her life. She can have a “do as I say, not as I do” approach to life. This manifests in her valuing her own free will yet tell others what to do even when it’s not her place to do so.

Her stubbornness. Leo can be fixed in her stances to the point that she causes chaos when bending a little would create harmony. She can get stuck in believing that she’s right, no matter what. And there are definitely times when she can assume the unattractive role of the bully.

His quick-wit and intelligent mind. Leo is sharp and loves that Aquarius can easily keep up with her mind and that he has a variety of smart but unusual ideas that she’s never heard of.

His patient nature and good advice. Leo is fiery and can jump into situations without hesitation. Often times this works out favorably for her, but she also appreciates having Aquarius by her side giving her calm analysis and great advice on how to tackle an obstacle. He’s also incredibly attentive and patient when she talks and is always ready to uplift her. She loves this.

What the Leo Woman Dislikes about the Aquarius Man

His detached aloofness. Leo women struggle with partners who tend towards detachment. She wants someone who reflects her buoyant, fiery nature, and gives her a constant stream of praise and affirmation. Aquarius can still struggle to provide the attention and affection that she craves. She might realize quickly that he’s not going to be as forthcoming with himself as she is.

His highflying philanthropic goals. She won’t knock him for being a humanitarian, but she may take issue with the amount of energy that he devotes to the betterment of other people’s lives. She wants to see him focus more on his and her life.

His lack of forceful, passionate energy. Aquarius is an air sign, and air signs can be withdrawn and dispassionate at times. He cares a lot about ideas but is more of a lover than a fighter in how he pushes for what he cares for. When these two do fight and things get heated, the fiery Leo woman will likely hold her ground while Aquarius ends up deferring in an attempt to avoid too explosive of an emotional clash. She won’t take well to this and may lose respect for him.

His scattered pursuits. The Aquarius man can be all over the place with how he spends his time socializing and working on personal projects. He’s a fixed sign but his mind is so active with insights and inspiration that he struggles not to pick up new interests on a whim. Leo is much more fiery and forceful with her pursuits and can grow weary of an Aquarian guy who’s constantly redirecting his focus.

Aquarius Man & Leo Woman: Sexual Chemistry

Score: 9/10

As opposite signs, Aquarius and Leo can experience a lot of sexual chemistry. All opposite signs share a magnetic attraction for each other.

It’s important for them to maintain a flowing sex life to channel their opposite sign natures healthily. Being opposite signs, there’s a lot of natural differences. That polarity can be great for frequent sexual release, but without sexual release, their opposite natures and polarity can cause friction.

Aquarius can like spontaneous sexual excursions, but Leo probably won’t be into romping around in the back seat of the car or in the corner of the movie theater like he is. She prefers comfort and ease over spontaneity.

There is a chance that they might not spend that much time in bed together due to Aquarius’s more cool sexual nature. He can split his attention in all different directions and neglect sex. This can add up and really frustrate his Leo woman who ends up sitting at home craving sexual connection and validation from her lover.

Aquarius Man & Leo Woman: Relationship Score

Score: 8/10

This relationship will likely be built on excellent friendship, but over time it can devolve into contentious disagreements that push them apart.

As opposite signs, they’re both similar and yet wildly different. They each have qualities that the other admires and dislikes.

On the positive side, these two can really enjoy “the good life” together. They both enjoy socializing, love going out on the town, as well as theatre and cinema. Leo likes to shock and tease, while Aquarius just naturally shocks and teases. There can be a lot of fun and levity in their shared lives. Both are students of life and seek all forms of education and experience. They love to absorb knowledge and can be wellsprings for one another. Ideally, they continue to inspire each other and build mutual respect.

On the other hand, he might become entirely put off by her sense of self-importance – especially if she tries to lord it over people who she considers her inferior.

Both can be stubborn and unrelenting in their opinions and convictions, which will likely cause friction. He could think of her as over-demanding while she can feel that he is inhuman.

Additionally, both are selective about who they let into their heart. Both Leo and Aquarius can keep people at an arms-length. Neither is a highly emotional sign, but both still have delicate feelings and learn to protect themselves from hurt.

Both like to adventure with different lovers before they decide to settle and get married. Aquarius fears the loss of freedom that comes with a relationship and Leo enjoys going through the drama of dabbling with various lovers. Commitment means a lot to each of them, and they won’t dive in for the long haul together very easily. If they do, both could potentially have buyers’ remorse.

If fires of passion can stay kindled, they can work through disagreements with maturity, and they can remain co-equals, the relationship can work. There’s always going to be strong feelings and reactions within this relationship.
