I’ve been doing this for a long time and one of the most common questions I get is whether two people born under the same signs have a more compatible love match than two people born under different signs.
The quick answer to all this of course is yes and no.
When you pair two people of the same sign, they pretty much have an idea of what to expect from their romantic partner.
Why? They know their general tendencies. They also know their general biases. They know how they perceive the world so there’s a lot in common that they can work with.
The reason I say the answer is partly no is because as much as the horoscope tells us our general direction and our general tendencies, we are still creatures of choice.
Believe it or not, 20% of your life is based on your personal decisions while 80% is due to your general inclination and your general direction, never underestimate that 20%.
This is the key to understanding same-sign compatibility.
This is definitely true when it comes to Leo woman and Leo man love compatibility.
The Power of Passion in a Leo-Leo Couple
If there is any one word to describe the typical Leo it is this: passion.
Leos are never in short supply for passion. If you’re looking to have a friend that is willing to go all the way for you and defend you, you would fall in love with the level of passion a Leo has.
If you’re looking for a love partner that is not afraid to show his or her love for you, the Leo can definitely fit the bill. If there is anything great about the Leo, it’s their passion.
However, this is also their greatest weakness. Keep reading below.
The Limitation of Passion
The problem with running on passion is that eventually passion runs out. I know that’s hard to believe, but think of it as like driving a car. Even if you fill up the tank eventually you will run out of gas unless you keep refilling.
Pretty much common sense, right?
Unfortunately, when it comes to romantic relationships, including relationships between Leo and Taurus signs, common sense is the first thing that gets flushed down the toilet.
When it comes to Leo woman and Leo man love compatibility both partners need to understand that the relationship has to progress quickly beyond the passion stage.
You can only live on passion for so long. The secret to Leo woman and Leo man love compatibility in a successful long-term relationship is to quickly grow the relationship. Passion is expressed in many ways and this is the secret.
The most obvious definition is, of course, physical passion. The next step is emotional passion.
However, there are different levels of passion and the highest level, of course, is spiritual. When both partners work with each other to quickly grow the relationship past the physical, emotional and social and other stages, they can quickly lead to a place where they can be fully matured and polished people.
Your Main Challenge: Learning to Listen First
One key to growing the relationship past the early stages of superficial passion and physical passion is to learn how to listen.
I know this may seem pretty basic for anybody that’s been in any kind of significant relationship, but the reality is as our society progresses, people listen to each other less and less. In many cases, people go into a typical situation with a preset agenda.
This is not a recipe for success.
When you go into any negotiation or any relationship or any other situation involving other human beings, you have to know how to listen first.
In other words, you have to learn how to understand and understand the other person before you can expect to be understood. This is precisely the reason why Leo woman and Leo man love compatibility can stand on rocky ground.
The reality is that one of the common factors of Leos is that they tend to charge in any situation without knowing all the facts. In many cases, they don’t even bother to listen.
You have to understand that listening is a key step in gathering information. You cannot take action without the right kind of information otherwise you will make the wrong decision again and again. It takes a long time for a typical Leo to understand this. If you are in a Leo woman and Leo man relationship, you really need to wrap your mind around this concept.
Learn to listen first. It’s really crucial. Interestingly enough, different people require different listening skills. The person might be opening their mouth and words might be coming out and they may be doing all sorts of things, but they need to be listened to at a certain level in a certain way.
Action without Listening Leads to Disaster
I don’t think you need me to remind you that action without listening leads to disaster. It really all boils down to understanding.
If you’re going to rush into any situation, especially as emotionally-charged as a romantic relationship, you better have at least enough of the facts so you can at least conduct yourself properly.
This is the problem with a Leo on Leo match up. They’re both very eager. They’re both driven by passion. They have a lot of boldness, but it can end up with a very toxic situation where they are basically rubbing each other the wrong way all the time.
There’s a lot of friction. And sadly people can only take the emotional friction for so long until they decide to want to hit the exits. You don’t want your relationship to reach that stage.
If you want Leo woman and Leo man love compatibility to lead to a positive place, you need to understand that you need to listen first and then understand and then take action.
That is the proper sequence. Get that sequence wrong and your relationship will be in trouble. This is the also the exact same pattern I often see with Leo and Pisces couples.
Understand the Insecurity beneath Your Public Persona
One key aspect of the Leo personality is that all this boldness, all this brashness and perception of strength is really driven by a deep sense of insecurity.
This is nothing permanent. This is not a fatal flaw. This is not a character hole that will doom any Leo and Leo relationship or Leo and other sign relationship for that matter.
However, it is definitely worth keeping an eye on because if you understand what drives a person to behave the way that person does you, can make serious progress in talking to each other and understanding each other in such a way that you complement each other instead of competing with each other, butting heads or otherwise dragging each other down.
Make no mistake about it, Leo woman and Leo man love compatibility has worked in the past, is working now and will continue to work in the future.
However, you need to keep the factors above in mind to maximize the success of your relationship.
